Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Regarding the Latino approval rating going from 36% in December to 50% now, it was an NPR poll with 3% margin of error... Careful about tossing that 3% MOE around.

When it was cold, my grandmother would make spiced cider for us kids by using the big old school plug in coffee percolator by filling it with apple juice and putting red hots (cinnamon candy) in the part where the coffee went.

We need to send the military to secure the border in Vermont.

Re: Racism in America Becoming Fashionable Again

There's more than enough fault to go around. The supervisors absolutely should be on the receiving end of substantial discipline, but that shouldn't mitigate the responsibility or discipline faced by the students.

Re: Assholes at work

And, let's call it the "Texas Effect" that when you do the uncomfortable act of "not fitting in" and correcting the mental oppression of falsehoods, other people will speak up and say "thank you".

In other words, it feels like you are all alone, but you're not.
