Biden's pick for Sec of State

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antony_Blinken From that article: Blinken was pivotal in the formulation of the Obama administration's response to the 2014 Crimean Crisis. In a speech at the Brookings Institution in June 2014, Blinken emphasized that a wide and expansive sanctions regime was critical,...

Re: US presidential election fraud?

GSA acknowledges Biden as the president-elect and begins transition process. Trump has still not conceded, but he's not stopping the transition; possibly a sign that the fight is winding down.

Re: 2019 Noble Peace Prize

Maybe this wasn't the best choice either. Now there is conflict in Ethiopia in the Tigray region.

Re: Fresh water

In general, the middle east is mostly arid or semi arid. Many conflicts over water are in the horizon, including between Egypt and Ethiopia, and between Turkey and Syria & Iraq. There is currently a conflict in Africa over water with the Grand Renaissance Dam in Ethiopia. https://www.bbc.com/news/w...

Re: Fresh water

For golf courses, that could easily be done with artificial turf. The brands they have now are very realistic looking. I have some at my properties and you can only tell it's artificial when you get very close. Considering the heat in Southwest and if the fake grass gets walked on - how long will i...

Re: Fresh water

We First Worlders in dry areas really ought to stop building pools & golf courses! :thumb: I agree. It's amazing how many homes have pools in the Southwest states. Yes, it gets very hot, but how many really use them? And they are very expensive! The water bill, the monthly maintenance fee to a pool...

Re: Why did Trump & The Conservatives fall?

Contrary to the false media narative that is being so vigorously promoted, Biden is not the "president elect". Trump and the conservatives have not fallen. None of the electoral votes have been certified. There is evidence of widespread voter fraud and more will be coming to light in the coming day...

Re: Media button broken

Until we get it to work for everyone, just go ahead and post the youtube and social media links you want to display and I'll fix it for everyone so that it will show embedded.

It will just show as a link until I see it and then I'll fix it.

Re: final POTUS poll

Felicitationes Biden, the most voted candidate in History! Narendra Modi received 225.5 million votes in last year's election in India. Since India is the largest democracy (in population), it will be hard to break that record for any other country. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_Indian_general...

Re: final POTUS poll

Trump hasn't lost yet, although it's not looking good for him. If he holds his current leads in Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Alaska and then wins Nevada, then he wins. He needs to win all of those states though, including Nevada where he is currently 8,000 votes less than Biden. Alaska sti...

Re: final POTUS poll

Hi David, Actually, that district in Maine is not needed by the Democrats to get to 270 with WI, MI, & NV. The 270 estimate includes that district going to the Republicans. I think you're right, I just put the colors in and it would still be 270 for Biden. https://www.270towin.com/maps/br9xQ.png

OMG!

And that means it will be a 269-269 tie, whi...
