Turn off the AC, and office buildings would become uninhabitable, vehicles sitting in traffic would become torture chambers, apartment buildings would become death traps.

That is an odd request considering the consequences.

Or are we to dismantle civilization.

The focus needs to be on China. They release more greenhouse effects than the rest of the world combined. We trash our economies in complying while China rages on spewing crap and getting fatter laughing all the way to the bank.

I always wonder why in our society, how bad behavior often results in huge financial reward.

That's the elite class for you. We common folks are not so lucky.

Sad!

We need to rename 'Politics' to "Fight Club" forum. A place where we bash and trash talk each other.

And the media is partly to blame for trying to find and sensationalize every singe possible gun related event that occurs. These things have gone on in the background like, forever. And what they are doing is making things harder for law enforcement by fanning the flames of the discontented.

I'll second that.

This is messed up. LEO sprayed & prayed shooting the wrong person it appears.

“All he has is a toy truck in his hand,” Charles Kinsey, the man lying on his back, yells at two police officers standing behind telephone poles just a few dozen feet away on Northeast 14th Avenue. “That’s all it is. There is no need for guns.”

Police said they only learned later that Kinsey worked at an assisted care facility and that the man sitting near him was autistic.

After the recording stopped, one of the officers fired three shots, hitting Kinsey at least once in his leg.

Does it really matter who wins in November...

When this happens

It will be much much worse this time.

With almost half the positions (city, county, state, federal) up for grabs this election I'm hoping the playing field will be change drastically. For better or for worse is up for grabs.

As a pensioner I look every time before fill up now.

V Lowest Regular Gas Prices in the Last 24 hours for your area. V

http://www.floridastategasprices.com/De_Land/index.aspx

I also do not trust the gas pumps. Most states calibrate the gas pumps with 5 Gallon measure can. So pump only in 5 gallon increments, 5, 10, 15, 20 and so on. We have been doing this for years now. When I was tracking fuel I found we saved about $200 a year. As a pensioner now I get buy on 5 to 10 gallons a month in a '97 Subaru Outback. Every trip as multiple errands. A joy ride has an errand or two in it. I can be pretty thrifty when I put my mind to it.

That rig will have a large tank I would think. Another economy trick is to keep tank full. If you can fill up all way and then refill when 5 gallons have been used. The fuller the tank the better the shelf life/quality of your gasoline. And you have an almost full tank in case of an emergency/evacuation.

Actually France are already using the word "Daesh" instead of ISIS.
http://www.france24.com/en/20140917-france-switches-arabic-daesh-acronym-islamic-state
I think everybody should call them for what they are!

I got it from the French folks I know as well as the French media.

Daesh, very fitting. :)

They are not a State. They are Daesh.

I wish 'Daesh' would become the universal word used. A universally excepted label for a common enemy.

Using 'ISIS' in it self validates they are/have a state.

They do/are not, they occupy sovereign territory with their version of Marshal Law.

Why Isis will hate it if we start calling them Daesh

So what's really the point of these conventions nowadays? I just saw on the news the anti-Trump people were suppressed today, and Trump is going to be the nominee regardless.

4 days on non-stop news propaganda. Yes, that is the point, the only point.

and drama.
