Notes & Comment: Stranded by global warming

Caught in ice due to global warming.
From all over:

I blame the Paris Accord. The University of Manitoba has canceled its 2017 Arctic climate change study expedition because there is too much ice to execute the mission safely. The U of M headlines: “Large Canadian Arctic climate change study cancelled due to climate change.”

It's among their core competencies. Presidential historian and author Doug Wead says the Deep State is attempting a coup d’├ętat of President Trump. "We have very skilled, talented professionals. They’ve overthrown governments in Vietnam and the Philippines, in Iraq and Iran, in Egypt, in the Ukraine. Duly elected democratic governments. They created what they called 'popular uprisings.' What did we expect? That’s their skill set. These people who work some of them in the State Department, some of them in intelligence, some of them in the media. They’ve worked together to overthrow other governments. So it was inevitable they would use the gun on ourselves. It looks Like a coup d’├ętat. I don’t know how else you would explain it."

Don't go there. You gasp with each new report on Uber’s toxicity -- a parade of escalating scandals that seem more fitting at a company run by Tony Soprano than by nerds in San Francisco. Yet if you’re like many people, in a day or two you’ll shrug, pull out your phone and call up an Uber anyway. Don’t do it — at least not without considering the full weight of your decision, and the many alternatives you might turn to instead. Try Lyft. Use a taxi, a bus or a train. Heck, hire a limo and a chauffeur with a golden top hat. To encourage a better Uber, it’s time to play the only card you’ve got: If it backslides or otherwise fails to live up to the promises it’s making now, stop using Uber.

He's too tall to be a girl. James Comey is Petula Clark singing “Feelings.” In his Senate testimony he described how his duties caused him “a whole lot of personal pain.” He was often “confused and concerned” about things, sometimes even “honestly concerned." More than the facts, he spoke of his “impression,” “reading,” and “sense” of the facts. Something Loretta Lynch asked him to do “gave [him] a queasy feeling.” That’s not how Joe Friday talked on “Dragnet.” Or Clint Eastwood. When Clint shot a bad guy, all he felt was a slight pressure on his trigger finger. Comey talks the way girls talk.

Fine, I prefer LL Bean anyway. Many conservatives will be dropping one of their favorite outdoor clothing lines after Patagonia announced they will help lead the resistance against President Trump. Note to business owners: Conservatives control the purse strings in America, purchasing 60 percent of all products and services.
