  12. The Washington Post is all you could come with? How is pointing out that aid money was misued and redirect inane and vulgar ? You don't have to do much digging to see that things like that did actually happen. You do know who Duvalier, Mobutu and Muguge are ?

  18. There is one thing to keep in mind about Donald Trump, he is not a politician. His prior profession was the rough and tumble and rude world of business . Different world different rules and different behavior . A politician good , bad and indifferent keeps his dirty laundry and true face behind a mask of Mask of plastic civility which in theory is designed to keep the voters and the press at bay . Having this mask doesn't mean the professional politician is any any better then Trump. It just makes them look better .
  19. Warming up core of planet, Thats a tough one. Mars being half the size of earth cooled down because its core compared to earth much smaller also Mars's lack a lunar satilte that proportionate to it meant almost no plate technics which is one the think keeping Earth Core heated up. I thinking if Mars had had a moon 1/6 proportion like Earth early in it history , that might have keep it core active for longer period , maybe even today and, had that happened , there might be ocean a denser atmosphere and maybe higher lifeforms.

  23. Jean Claude Duvalier of Haiti stole about 300 million and President Mobutu of Zaire took even more more then that. And there is Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe whose polices , corruption and cronyism wrecked that country economically and politically.
