    To truly show the world what they want you have to show them what they need and wait for them to want what they need. A change of perspective can ignite the passions of the mind and heart. All things are not created equal, nor are all men. We are a spectrum of lives as complex and unique as anything else in this world. Unlike nature we have the ability to choose, to understand the effect of our choices, and act upon the information in future situations. We also have the abundance of knowledge of generations before, we have analyzed ourselves throughout history. Now we have an ability to take everything and analyze it to the point of putting a face on reality. We choose not to see the true face of humanity because it would be like seeing the Face of God, and to see that which our hearts cannot bear to witness we fear that we would burn in the light. We look out in space for life and destroy the life right here in greater numbers than the first million planets that surround us. We wish to see sentient life and yet are divided ourselves by race. Religion defined by minds that are too limited to conceptuaize the mind of another human being and yet believe they know the mind and will of God. Humanity has so much wasted potential if the people who actually understand the world would stop trying to rule it but guide it for the betterment of all, show the world the path and have them help to build it. We don't need a leader, we need leaders of all races and creeds to stand up in the name of humanity, to help raise others, to allow the growth potential of humanity to truly be defined by mankind. The information the average person can find in a newspaper is more than most people ever had in a lifetime only a few hundred years ago. Information isn't the problem, we are bombarded by information every day, but the information drives the economy, politics, public opinion, and the ways that the average person can do in their communities is lacking significantly. Help people make the world around them better by opening up opportunities for them to participate in making changes towards a better humanity.

    No one looks good here. Dems want 2 mix DACA in- no wonder these kids r apprehensive. Shutdown's aren't new. Lives as bargaining chips in fiscal issues?🖓Trump portrays any shutdowns as slights 2 the military.🖓

    Could someone explain to me why the government needs to "shutdown" every-time there's a disagreement in congress? I just recently got interested in politics and government but I'll google it later but I'd prefer a simpled down answer please.

      OK 11 months ago

      Oh that makes perfect sense. Thanks Tactical Bacon.

    • Tactical Bacon
      Tactical Bacon 11 months ago

      OK It shuts down because if Congress doesn't approve a spending can't really spend. Hence, the government shuts down until the funds are properly appropriated.

    • AgarTron

    the sun was actually cooler during the time of dinosaurs. The reason for warmer conditions on the planet during their hundreds of millions of years of existence was the fact that there was no polar ice caps when they were here. There was no land masses at the poles when dinosaurs lived. Google images of what the Earth looked liked when dinos did exist. Remember the super continent Pangia? No land at the poles means no land to support polar ice caps. No ice caps mean much more radiation bombards the planet. Mammals existed during dino time but were forced to live under ground and only foraged at night. It took the ice ages to create conditions ideal for mammals.
