So why all the crying?

Don't know why you are crying, but the trumpettes are balling because he is filling the swamp and adding fertilizer so it grows and grows. They were hoping for change.

All land everywhere belongs to those who have the power to control it now. What a mixed up world it would be if all land was returned to the control of the descendants of those who originally settled it, if they even still exist.

+2

So the Jews should be kicked out of Palestine because their ancestors originally settled it, then they left, so they can't come back?

So the Palestinians should be kicked out of Gaza by an invading horde of Jews with an army?

No wonder the world is screwed up.

<ed>never mind those islands in the South China Sea

I added RA and dec to the table.
I couldn't find a web source of skymaps for given RA and dec range; any pointers?

It used to have one in the Seti-Science link way back when Seti tried to show where Arecibo was pointing if it was collecting data.

You can't check the facts until you know precisely what fact it is that is being waved out there, hence grammar is important.

Yup, that's the same argument Bubba tried to make with his famous "it depends on what the meaning of 'is' is........."

And Bubba is legally correct. (Bubba was no idiot, he made them list the acts and they missed one and he got lucky)

Doesn't matter where ON THIS EARTH that plant grows naturally. Edit: It NOW grows within our borders.

Smuggled into the USA and the result of crime which is one of the crimes enumerated for the federal government to regulate. It doesn't matter how long ago the original crime happened. It is still the result of a crime and still smuggling.

How about this, Jack smuggles in some item but he drops it by the side of the road. You come along and find it. Is it still smuggled into the country? But you seem to be saying if he dropped a seed and it sprouts it no longer is smuggled.

Totally irrelevant redirection.

An admission that the post-truth was undeniably false.

Nope, sorry. I'm still going to call you & Gary lazy. You've both gone into a "grammar police" mode but have yet to go into "fact checking" mode.

You can't check the facts until you know precisely what fact it is that is being waved out there, hence grammar is important.

As to full time, think about how a person can work 60+ hours a week and not be "full time" If you do you might have a light bulb switch on.

edit: Congress has the Constitutional authority to establish laws on naturalization or immigration, but they do not have the Constitutional authority to regulate a naturally occurring weed which has many other potential properties other than negative intoxicating effects.

edit 2: The way congress gave themselves the authority to regulate a naturally occurring plant was to claim it under the commerce clause, create a tax on it, make it illegal to possess if the "TAX STAMP" was not affixed to it, and then NOT ISSUE TAX STAMPS. wrong, wrong, wrong! What else has congress done to ignore the rules imposed on them by the states? That could be another thread with thousands of entries!

Totally false, er post-truth.

The weed does not naturally occur in the USA, it is imported. Natural range is central Aisa and the Indian sub-continent. As it had to cross the international border to be in the USA - smuggled, that is the province of congress. But you can continue to have your fantasy, er post-truth.

MK, Perhaps you should read the minutes of the Continental Congress of the Colonies where a committee to draft the Articles of Confederation was authorized. Also note the date. I think you will find it before another important date.

The cart does not come before the horse.

Lincoln was right to call our system "Government of the people, by the people", and not to refer to States in that formulation.

To me as an outsider this sounds weird thinking of the outcome of this year's election.
"Government of the people, by the people" sounds to me is that the majority rules.
But not in the US. It's the electorals who rules.

Just a whisker over a majority voted, giving the Drumpf about 26% of the country for him and about 74% against him.

1) Are full-time workers on the rise or in decline?

Define "full-time"

40 hours of work a week? OH WAIT, I bet you have to put a condition on that 40 hours. I bet that condition would make someone who works 60 hours a week not be counted as "full-time." Am I right?

Bobby, they don't understand that Congress can refuse to accept a call by a given state for a convention by saying the document they get, calling for one, is out of order. A procedural vote, simple majority. That way they can assure that the States can never have a convention. (Doubt they would dare do it, but they have the power to do so. They may well however say that a call is valid only for a session of congress wiping out all those old calls by making each state reaffirm its call is still validly in force.)

The people then can elect different representatives to congress who do not reject the call. As we now have direct election of representatives it seems the people are the source and the states have none. This happened when the Senators changed from being elected by the State Governments to the people.

As to Marbury vs Madison, portions of State Constitutions have been ruled invalid or in conflict with the Federal Constitution and hence unenforceable.

States come into existence only with the blessing of congress after they swear their allegiance to, petition, the USA. (except 13 who transferred from the confederation) (Texas seems to have been allowed some special provisions too.)

You really can't tell "worker" is implied here? Seriously? Babies?

Without a source for the number and a methodology of collecting it, no!


You guys don't have keyboards?

Yes, but with the massive amount of dis-information published finding what you thought was a good source .....

As to that wiki source I see it includes all over 15, so it includes retired as workers and in school as workers as well as homemaker as worker, a considerable number of zero's being included in the average.

I know someone is trying on the thread icons. I also remember the last redesign of the website. Someone got smart and hired a professional graphic designer and their name was home page. I think there was a reason for that. We have https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_forum.php?id=232, perhaps there is someone with prior experience who might be willing who can fit into the budget?

As to the icons, in places they are better, and in places they are worse. Watch out for how they scale and how much border is around them.
