Donald's learned a lot in the first 100 days:
  • Healthcare is complicated. 
  • There are different factions in the Republican Party. 
  • N. Korea is not easy. 
  • China is not a currency manipulator (anymore). 
  • Executive orders can be overruled by judges. 
  • What NATO does. 
  • Mexico won’t pay. 
  • Iraq and Syria are different. 
  • Russia is allied to some bad dudes that use chemical weapons (not even Hitler used chemical weapons (on his own people (except of course at the Holocaust Centres))) 
  • Steve Bannon cannot be trusted. 
  • Michael Flynn cannot be trusted. 
  • Paul Ryan cannot be trusted (to get a bill passed). 
  • NAFTA isn’t so bad after all. 
  • How to shake hands (? or at least not to until he learns how to). 
  • How trade with the EU works.
  • Germany doesn’t have any trade deals with the US. (He may also now know that applies to all EU members but probably not.) 
  • Nuclear holocaust would be like no other.

An extraterrestrial being, newly arrived on Earth—scrutinizing what we mainly present to our children in television, radio, movies, newspapers, magazines, the comics, and many books—might easily conclude that we are intent on teaching them murder, rape, cruelty, superstition, credulity, and consumerism. We keep at it, and through constant repetition many of them finally get it. What kind of society could we create if, instead, we drummed into them science and a sense of hope?

I saw someone on twitter talking about how Christy Clark’s Wikipedia page is suspiciously missing a lot of her past controversies. When I went through the page’s history, I was amused to see this was briefly added (sadly now deleted, though you can still view it).

Incidentally, the Wikipedia page is still missing a ton of Christy Clark’s worst scandals (triple delete, the BCTF Supreme Court ruling, Health firings) right during the election. If any of your followers are experienced editors who would be able to fix that, we would all appreciate it.
