"One does not need another person to agree in order for a fact to be true."

Not standing for the national anthem is a legal form of peaceful protest, which is a First Amendment right.

When a national figure refuses to stand for the national anthem, it shocks people into paying attention and generates conversation.

When one realizes the US does not live up to its ideals of freedom, liberty, and justice for all, refusing to stand for the national anthem is appropriate and justified.

Are there flesh eating bacteria in Harvey floodwater?

See CNN report here


Tests found E. Coli up to 8 K times above guidelines.

Total coliform samples ranged from 43,000 CFU to 57,000 CFU.
EPA standard for recreational water is less than 100 CFU.


The A&B Lab manager said such high levels are an indication there could be Vibrio vulnificus, a type of flesh eating bacteria in the water. He's really worried about the people who waded through it.

On Thursday Mitribah, Kuwait  hit 129.2°F (54°C) and on Friday so did neighboring Basrah, Iraq. This isn't even an  El Niño year.

Scorching Temperatures Just Set the Middle East's Heat Records on Fire

The author Sara Emerson cautions, "... this could be the start of an atmospheric feedback loop that charts us on a destructive path toward accelerated global warming."

It's true that hot El Niño years caused faster increase in CO2, because forests were dryer, etc. If we're approaching that level of heat between  El Niño ....?

“1 in 4 Americans are skeptical on climate change. Who gives a shit? That doesn’t matter. You don’t need people’s opinions on a fact. You might as well have a poll asking which number is bigger, 5 or 15? Or do owls exist? Or are there hats?” -John Oliver
