Trump was upset by the Washington Post story that reported GOP senators said that Donald Trump was “confused” and “did not have a grasp of some basic elements of the Senate [healthcare] plan,” after Trump’s remarks indicated he was unaware the plan would reduce taxes by hundreds of billions of dollars. Trump struck back with a tweet as per usual with his more ignorance about taxes. “The #AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!” The businessman idiot doesn’t even know that Amazon collects sales taxes in all 50… Read more »

1) I don’t think Trump was referencing sales taxes. I think he honestly believes that an “Internet tax” is an actual thing that exists. Remember, this is a guy who famously doesn’t use a computer or e-mail. 2) Trump’s lack of involvement with the most substantial legislative initiative of his administration, repealing and replacing Obamacare, is dumbfounding… President Obama gave speech after speech after speech making the case for the ACA.

Well, all they did was project temperature trends out and applied them to certain outcome areas. Some of it’s common sense, like if it’s hotter, yes ppl will want to use more airconditioning. I think it’s obviously difficult to predict climate patterns over long stretches, but it makes sense to at least do what we can to address the current reality of rising average temperatures, or other climate shifts, even if you don’t believe that any of that climate change is man-made (which nevertheless seems implausible on it’s face). So, there may be a lot of bold predictions out there,… Read more »

You don’t have to agree how, but the facts are the temperate is raising globally every year. The tide highs and average sea levels are going up. The climate is changing.
