As a result of the recent mid-term elections, Orange County, California is now represented in Congress solely by Democrats. What was once a bastion of Republicanism has made a sharp turn to the left, mainly due to demographics -- as wealthy white families have shrunk in size and/or moved to other p...

No law should tell any women what to do with their body. It's their body, I totally agree with that. But saying that men have absolutely no word is just plain wrong. Childrens also have impacts on men. We don't live in the 50s anymore you know. Imagine a situation where the boyfriend wants a child ...

I don't mind if a man has an opinion on abortion, I just have a problem with a man imposing restrictions on what a woman can or can't do to her own body. Thank you. That's what I've been trying to say all along. If we decided to send people to war by voting and only men were sent to war, then I wou...

What about women who have always been infertile? They much like any man can never become pregnant. True but most of them don't know it and most conditions that impact a woman's fertility do not leave them infertile but just with low fertility. The only women for whom infertility in the sense of not...

I don't mind if a man has an opinion on abortion, I just have a problem with a man imposing restrictions on what a woman can or can't do to her own body. At least with "pro life" women, they make their decision from some emic perspective of being female, which puts them in the situation of...

In an effort to shutdown the Central American caravan, President Trump signed an executive order, requiring all asylum seekers to make their claim at a Border Patrol "port of entry". Anyone entering the US illegally will automatically be denied asylum and presumably arrested. Here are the...

The bottom line is that Trump is blaming the fires on California's restrictions on commercial conifer logging, despite the fact that one of those fires is not in a conifer forest, or forest at all, and most wild fires in California are not in conifer forests. In fact, the conifer forests in southern...

One could cut down every single conifer in California and there would be no fewer fires. It's actually difficult to set a living tree on fire (with the exception of eucalyptus), and what is actually burning at the start of most California fires is dead grass, and shrubbery, the latter which can grow...

I was not aware that Malibu was a forest... unless my memory from when I visited there is mistaken, it isn't.

The apologia for Trump's spiteful and inhumane responses to the devastation of this tragedy are a political narrative divorced from realism.


Malibu is fairly far from any forest.

Scientists: Wind, Drought Worsen Fires, Not Bad Management And the water from the mountains is not diverted from the rivers due to environmental laws. The rivers naturally run in to the ocean and the water that is diverted is diverted for human use. California environmental laws prevent water from ...

Disgusting just disgusting. So his policy is “ Let them burn.” He's warning them to get their act together and take fire prevention seriously. Watch for fire experts on tv, who will be telling us all the things they could do done to minimize this and save lives. It's like if a child is failing in s...

I seem to think I having long wavy hair is not attractive to women, and the reason why I haven't had much luck when trying to talk to people on dating sites, meeting or talking to them in public or at work, but I feel like they not all interested. My hair only reaches half way down my neck, not ver...

Apparently, Democrats in the House and Senate choose their leadership based on a single metric: Who brings home the most dough. That is, those who can raise the most money are the ones selected for leadership roles. Other issues, like policy, ability to pass legislation, leadership abilities, abili...

When I was 16 there was a bag boy at the market who I would occasionally watch push the carts in. I estimate that he was about my age. I envisioned he would work there for a while and move on with his life after he finished high school. I moved to a different part of town next to a cheaper supermark...

These Jobs pay so little Most do, some don't, but we are talking about your first job, not a job you have to stay in. Anyway, it's the holiday season right now. If you are in the U.S. many retailers are hiring seasonal workers. These are great first jobs for people who have never had a job and who ...
