In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold. We are here to discuss them in a civil political debate. If this is your first visit to our political forums, be sure to check out the RULES.

    Photosynthesis and the Earth Energy Balance

    A variable I've been trying to pin down in the global climate system is how much photosynthesis affects the earths energy balance.

    In honor of Joe Biden

    Joe Biden is really something else. He is the master of gaffs. I saw a remark on Facebook, which attributed a quote to him. "People are dying who haven't died before." Now I wasn't able to find this as fact anywhere, so it's probably a fabrication. But it most certainly is the type of thing he...

    The Six Billion Dollar Man

    I loved the TV series when I was young, the Six Million Dollar Man. In fact, I read the book before the TV series came out. I generally don't care for remakes. Batman and Spiderman have been redone too many times. However, I think a modernized version of this series could be a hit. Agree...

    Linda Ronstadt

    I'm not a big music buff, but I appreciate great music. Linda Ronstadt was one of the greatest artists alive. She is still alive, but fate took away her voice. Her last performance was 10 years ago. She was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2012, but it was incorrect and later was determined...

    Fish are dying in the Tennessee river

    I wonder what the extent of this will be. It may affect the Ohio river as well. We had a minor environmental hazard. Of all things.... Jim Beam Bourbon! One of the Rack Houses caught of fire at the Jim Beam Distillery. 45,000 barrels of bourbon went up in smoke. Of course much of the barrels...

    Oregon Food Tax.

    We have a ballot measure 103 coming up on our next election. I would normally agree to vote YES on the idea of this banning of a food tax, but I have to vote NO. My reason is the measure is made for the big soda companies loiike Coke and Pepsi, so their products cannot be taxed. The measure...
