Top General Says Military Doesn't Take Oath to Any Individual amid Pentagon Shakeup

Nuclear power is the new darling of many “green” politicians.  I was in Fukushima after the meltdown.  We, mankind, can’t control this tech when it goes wrong.  By trying to save our planet from our filthy habits, do we doom ourselves to a worse fate?  

It seems like Theo (15 months) was just taking his first steps yesterday. He’s gotten fast. @MaryKForrest

One of the centerpieces of the London protests. Trump on a golden commode, and it talks, says “fake news” and “witch hunt”

I’ve long worried how Trump would react when forced into a corner/ nervous/angry. For 3 years, he’s mostly gotten his way - passing though impeachment proceedings and various scandals; but times could be changing and reaching a head. The signs look dangerous.
