    She is one of the most poorly misinformed persons I've come across in a long time in government, and that's saying something considering the state that government is in nowadays.

    The woman is completely living in her own little world that's been created through social media and consequently groomed forthright.

    LOL, A few years ago, I was staying in Alco, Idaho overnight while on Vacation. I was very new to the church and absolutely devoted. When Sunday came, I dutifully attended the Sacrament Service there and the Bishop asked me why I was there, and that during service? My answer was that I was from Portland but felt obligated to honor God on Sunday seemed to mollify him. That was when I stupidly thought that I had a future as a Mormon.

    I had attended Sacrament in Halfway, Oregon, Enterprise, Oregon, and Indianapolis, Indiana and other places with never a problem. Gee, I hope that God is not as blunt with them as they were to me.

    That would arguably be "the end of the world".
    But a slightly warmer planet....lower in temp than prior epochs....isn't the "end".
    It would just cause some geographical shifts in population, farming, & other activities.

    One cannot make her correct with strained novel definitions of words.
    Old cliche....
    If we call a tail a "leg", how many legs does does a dog have?
    Still 4.
    Calling a tail a "leg" doesn't make it one.
    I'm actually trying to extricate myself from your semantic gymnastics.

    But she's well informed if one changes the definitions of the words she uses.
    Remember, we live in a post-truth post-dictionary age.

    I think she has me on <ignore>,
    so her display might be confusing.

    But we get to elect ours.
    And there really are differences between them.
    Many don't believe this though, because politicians appear to be
    corrupt & serving other interests. But they (those who've held
    office before) are doing exactly what they were before being elected.
    Like it or not, the people voted their approval.

    It strikes me that you're trying to both be "right" AND extricate yourself. While I think your last post is technically correct, it also defies common sense.

    There's a difference between being right, & merely trying.
    When you understand it, then you too can be the former.

    They are looking for paper from the PACs to his company as the company isn't under the same laws as packs.
