    "No. Bush may have been thinking more about the rich rather than average Americans when he enacted the cuts, but in execution, it benefitted all Americans."

    Trump could say the same about his tax cuts. You are making stuff up.
    Dude...the Trump tax cuts for the rich are at the expense of everyone else, unlike the Bush tax cuts which were also applied to families. The poor will have to pay for these tax cuts for rich passed by Trump. That's the difference.

    "The natural progression of earth's climate to things like ice ages is not climate change. That's just climate. "

    No, that is absurd. The ice age is climate change.

    Ice-ages are predicable and cyclical weather events for planet earth; in fact, scientists predict another ice age is coming. That's what makes ice-ages part of earth's climate.

    Scientists refer to climate change as man-made alterations to earth's cyclical weather patterns. Citing ice ages as "climate change" is like calling the changing seasons climate change.

    We’re Due For Another Ice Age But Climate Change May Push It Back Another 100,000 Years, Researchers Say

    Do you see? Ice-ages aren't considered "climate change". But human activity that alters ice ages IS climate change.

    Not too sure how this is relevant to climate change but this is not a 'Trump' initiative. It is a known fact that private game farms are extremely diligent in maintaining their stock and protecting animals from poachers. When a trophy hunter pays (at times many thousands of dollars) to hunt an animal they do more to protect endangered animals than all the face book button cli ...[text shortened]... ion for these animals.

    vivify do you accept this explanation and withdraw that particular gripe?

    Trump’s wildlife protection council is mostly trophy hunters and donors, lawsuit says

    You see the problem? Trump keeps making decisions that are bad for wildlife and the planet based on the desires of those who only care about profit. Trump put in charge of an agency responsible to protect wildlife....people who want to kill animals for sport or profit. He put as head of the EPA....someone who sued them 13 times in favor of Big Business. Clear conflicts of interests like this highlight Trump and the GOP have zero qualms with destroying the environment to benefit the rich.

    The expression "chains of punishment" is a metaphor.
    So your famous claim could be analysed as:

    The [literal] lost [i.e.non-Christians] will be [promised intent] hung in [metaphorical] chains of punishment as a warning [threatening towards] those [literal] beings on other [literal] worlds [i.e planets, plural]

    Correct?

    For a presumed egalitarian, you're awfully apt to paint the Jerries as Always Lawful Evil and the Good Old British Roast Beef as Always Spiffo and Ipso Facto In The Right.

    In fact, in the Great Imperialist War, all parties were in the wrong. All of them had been chomping at the bits to have a go at one another.

    This post is a rather odd non sequitur. I didn't discuss the origins of WWI at all and a claim that I am reflexively pro-Brit is an odd one given my posting history.

    Technology is not neutral. All technologies are embedded with a host of values that only manifest themselves upon the widespread adoption of that technology. They then serve to condition the way we view the world and exert an influence upon the choices we subsequently make.
    I think this is pretty much true and gave it a thumbs up to offset the haters. In particular, there is a trend now to let the tools of technology use us, rather than us using the tools.
