You should have tried harder. Posting utter guff does you no credit.
Doesn't seem to matter to CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times or Harry Reid(who does so from the floor of the Senate).
Interesting all the blank posting panels that show up afterwords probably as devoid of rational content as they were before the filter was applied.

This is government by Trump. So we can expect more http://people.com/crime/man-opens-fire-in-d-c-restaurant-while-self-investigating-fake-news-story-about-hillary-clinton/

Those totals you give don't match the ones I've read. Please give reliable link.

He can't give a link to a reliable source because they are a post-truth.

If you're carrying other debts and move because of finding a new job after a recession, it matters little if the new place has a lower cost of living,.

Amazingly, you would think bankruptcy is the same in every state, because it is Federal, but no, some states allow you to hang on to more things.

But that eventually leads to another conundrum, should Federal employees or people working for statewide companies, with the same qualifications and experience, be paid the same rate no matter where they live and work?

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.

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.

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.

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?
