  1. Great post based on fact. Showing that bigtex is cherry picking yet again.
  2. Increase crop production in places where it is low. According to Jason Clay, an expert in natural resources management at the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), " the best producers in the world of a crop are 100 times better than the worst." Many farmers in third world countries have not yet benefited from plant breeding techniques which could improve food production. Also highly beneficial are modern practices of crop rotation and matching crops to the climate and soil, for optimum output while preserving good conservation of the land. Implementing beneficial agricultural programs on a country-by-country bases is not enough. In order to make significant strides in fighting climate change, the United Nations needs to be given sufficient power, control and funds to do more research and bring about beneficial agricultural changes, worldwide. We are already late in fighting climate change and currently it is estimated that 815 million people worldwide, go hungry daily. The problems of climate change and feeding a rapidly increasing world population need to be addressed simultaneously.
  3. But first and foremost, the entire world population must be weaned from meat and become vegetarian. Livestock is the biggest cause of profligate land use.
  4. Aquaponics: Yet another approach to reducing agricultural pollution and harmful gaseous emissions while increasing food production for a growing world population. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/aquaponics-fish-poop-food_l_5c48b7e3e4b025aa26bf6f82
  5. Unlike the purchase of inhabited territory, taking deed to a property does not buy the people on that property. So laugh the rest of your demented day sway; Tedious little imbecile that you are.
  6. You can no longer simply purchase 55,000 people. The days of the Louisiana Purchase and the sale of Alaska are over.
  7. Reducing the Amount of Wasted Food: Another way to feed a growing world population while preserving the environment and reducing harmful emission, is simply to throw away less food. It has been show that a full 25% of all food is never consumed. The problem exists throughout the food-production chain. From growing and shipping to end-consumers like restaurants and households. In the United States, nearly 50% of all food is thrown in the garbage. Unsold food from supermarkets is usually thrown away. It is a worldwide problem. Some countries like France has made a laws that this food must be donated to charities. Households can cut down on waste by eating leftovers and not preparing more than they need. Restaurants throw away many tons of uneaten food daily. Although restaurants are protected against civil and criminal liability as a result of consuming donated food, most restaurants simply throw out wasted food. "The environmental impact of food loss and waste is high. The carbon footprint of food produced and not eaten is estimated at 3.3 gigatonnes of CO2, meaning that if food waste were a country it would rank as the third highest national emitter of greenhouse gases after the US and China." To cut down on the amount of worldwide food waste, we need international cooperation and laws. People need to be made aware of the seriousness of the of food waste problem. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/aug/12/cutting-food-waste-enough-for-everyone-says-un https://www.huffpost.com/entry/what-do-restaurants-do-wi_b_5469841 https://www.livescience.com/41301-way-to-feed-11-billion-people.html
  8. The Spy, Witch hat man, who is an evil opportunity hater. The great divider who hates everyone. Can't tell the forest from the trees.
  9. An inverted yield curve marks a point on a chart where short-term investments in U.S. Treasury bonds pay more than long-term ones. When they flip, or invert. It's widely regarded as a bad sign for the economy. Trump's tax cuts for the rich and tariff wars have done the US and the world great economic damage. We have now reached the economic milestone of an inverted yield curve. Always, in the past, it has signaled coming economic collapse.
  10. Yang has a detailed, comprehensive agenda. It's all laid out on his website and it fits together like a crossword puzzle. He explains what he would like to accomplish in detail and gives well thought out rationales. And at each stage, explains how it will be paid for ... No stone is left unturned. His site is like a progressive jigsaw puzzle ... assembled. It's a great read https://www.yang2020.com/policies/ Yang is definitely attracting attention despite how little time he got in the first two debates. It's unclear how far he can go, but he has qualified for the third debate and should get more time on-air than previously.
  11. I really like Andrew Yang's vision for America. He lays it all out, very clearly, on his website https://www.yang2020.com/policies/ Like other candidates, if elected, his work would just be getting started, pursuing his agenda.
  12. Were Warren, (or any of the more Progressive Democratic hopefuls) to be elected president, even if there were Democratic super-majorities in both houses, she would be unlikely to get more than a small part of her agenda signed into law. Too many Democratic senators and congressmen are obligated to corporate lobbyists and big money donors. And many Democratic lawmakers are ideologically far to the right of Warren. But if the Senate were to remain majority Republican, Warren's hands would be all but tied. She could implement some programs by executive order, but they are are subject to quick repeal by the next administration. Executive orders can be overturned by Congress. And the Supreme Court, now with a Conservative majority, can block an executive order as unconstitutional. Andrew Yang is running on on a "Freedom Dividend" of $12,000 yearly for all citizens. Is that likely to happen in his first 4 years of office? Or even in a second term? Maybe not. That said, a president has the bully pulpit and can be highly influential in shaping domestic and foreign policy, for years to come. A lot depends on how skillfully the president wields his/her weighty influence. Warren's ideas CAN eventually be implemented in the United States as proved by countries like Canada, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, Singapore and Germany. It involves changing the tax structure, among other things. But if Warren became president, it wouldn't happen right away. However, should the electorate swing left, over time, and the government come under long-term Democratic rule, it's possible that Warren's agenda and more could be accomplished.
  13. That's why I stuck to generalities and didn't reveal much detail about myself. It's usually best to avoid providing personal background because trolls tend to use personal information of ANY type as an excuse to make knee-jerk accusations of stolen valor or fake expressions of disapproval and disbelief. And everyone can read what's written here. But I suppose it probably won't do much harm to reveal on the internet, that I served from '62 to '65. I'm not surprised. Your OP was too thoughtful and non-provocative for NHB. In fact, it was super-reasonable. NHB is basically a food fight and your OP didn't throw eggs in anyone's face. Golfboy posted a similar, thread but his is largely disinformation. Still it provides a hint of the kind of answers your thread might have received had cons responded to it: https://www.liberalforum.org/topic/268111-how-does-germanys-free-university-work/ I noticed also, that you gave some good answers to a few other threads in NHB and although the reactions might not have made perfect sense, you escaped being trolled. 😁 We were in different services, separated by 17 years, so it's hard to make comparisons, based on experience. I have little idea how the army's policies and practices might have changed after I left. I can say this: In the early 60s, the Army used well-paid Warrant Officers for certain skilled jobs, such as helicopter pilot. Like civilians, it was the only job they did. But like enlisted personnel and officers, they could be assigned anywhere. Warrant Officers tended to make the service a career and there was a low rate of turnover.
  14. Knowing, as little that you can know anything, that education diminishes gullibility, you are anti-education. You would prefer that the uneducated to believe the anti-American untruths that Der Trumpkopfk regularly spews ... As well as his bought and paid for Republican stooges.
