Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

It wasn't just a graphic on a misleading tweet from Trump. It was a screen shot of a FOX graphic, and ,Lou Dobbs talked about it, digressed for a minute, then went back to it, with a guest talking about how "correct" that was... And that was a perfect screen grab. So, a fake graphic Lou Dobbs endors...

Does this mean Assange can be subpoenaed in the 2016 election related investigation?

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

And... Yes. This may deserve its own thread.
Trump's tweets are hitting a new level of "inciting" , admitting obstruction, and sheer insanity. The pedantic discussion of case law is worthy of discussion...somewhere.

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

I think the "Handmaid Tale" analogy is bogus. Disney characters were created by Disney for Disney's use as the essence of their image. The movie adaptation is just that. But, the Music created for that movie was a unique creation . The Music, original song, written and performed by, has a tradition ...

Re: Issues 2020: Electoral College

I'll put in a counter-point--- and not just to take the Devil's Advocate opinion for discussion purposes. There are several reasons to retain the system (and yet fix the problem) and really only one to ditch the electoral system. The one reason to change it is "sour grapes" that the Democratic candi...

Re: GEDmatch, DNA, genealogy. Help me Obi-wan Slarti

Yes, we are essentially at the point of inferred genetic data using Slartibartfast tools.
But it isn't a database commonly accessible and will certainly get more accurate with time.
