New section here. I'll be adding many more as I find them.
The good ideas:
Now for the *bad* ones:
Lions and Elephants Roaming the Great Plains?
When I first saw it on the newsfeed I assumed it was a hoax to make the scientific community look bad, but I Googled the name and he's for real. It's kind of unclear whether he's talking about creating a giant game park with fenced boundaries (which already exist on private lands, mostly for hunting), or actually allowing the critters run free. ...Bad, bad idea since it involves people and property issues, most of whom aren't exactly thrilled about seeing North America's more recent large fauna (wolves, grizzlies, pumas, etc.) reintroduced, either.
I'm guessing this man probably had to drive through Texas, Kansas, or any of the other Great Plains states and is suffering from delusions brought on by extreme lack of mental stimulation. :) It's a tempting thought if you've ever had to do those stretches of highway. :)
...No. No. This, of course doesn't reflect my opinion about Hillary as a person or her political record to date. But I don't think a liberal female candidate -- especially one whose power was helped along by riding [a scandalous] hubby's coattails -- stands a chance of winning in a time of war. The zeitgeist just isn't right for it, and you can bet this will bring out all the mudslingers in full force. Wartime tends to bring gut-level emotions to the fore, which will naturally give "authoritative/masculine" contenders an advantage.
If Hillary Clinton ends up winning the Dem nomination, I'll start to wonder if there's a scenario a la "The Candidate" afoot: "You Lose".
