The Progressives and Your Money
First things first. They’re no longer Democrats. “Democrats” are so yesterday, so obsolete, so unrepresentative of current liberal thought. JFK was a Democrat and he believed in a strong military, cutting taxes and confronting worldwide evil from an absolutist — not relative — vantage point. That’s all so wrong. We need a more enlightened approach, one that benefits from the knowledge we’ve gained in the 60 years since JFK. We’re progressed so far. That’s it — we’ll call ourselves Progressives.
Corrosion in metals can lead to the structural fatigue or failure of bridges, pipelines, and plane fuselages. Anti-corrosion coatings help prevent this, but they become ineffective when pierced, cracked, or scratched away. Researchers at Northwestern University have now developed a self-healing coating that can patch up its imperfections in a matter of seconds.

Have you ever wondered why racists are who they are? Why are blacks hated so by them? It makes no sense. Is it just their skin color? Are they perceived as some sort of threat to the white race?
All the reasons one can conjure up defy logic.
Yet there is another race of people, with a parallel history of slavery to freedom, who are more reviled than the black race. Of course I’m referring to the Jews and the nation of Israel.
Like racists, anti-Semites and haters of Israel appear to have to make up reasons just to continue to hate the tiny nation.
When the anti-Semitic radical, Democrat Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, granted several interviews to Jew and Israel-hating TV host, Ahmed Tharwat, it got scant attention from the main stream media. If not for the Daily Caller, we might not know about it.
The Trump Administration is racing to field a new nuclear weapon designed to counter Russia and enhance nuclear deterrence.
The W-76-2 warhead will be delivered to the U.S. Navy for deployment on ballistic missile submarines in late 2019. Proponents claim the new warhead will enable the U.S. to respond to Russian nuclear weapons proportionately, but critics claim the W-76-2 is just another nuclear weapon and similarly dangerous.
If my body was a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I’ve got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull.
