Politics split from "Processing animal waste"


This is the problem with un-checked capitalism.
It affects all of us in so many ways;
the quality of our air, water, food and environment are of little interest to capitalists.

I believe that we could achieve more through social activism than scientific research.

Despite his many flaws, I do like the policy of Trump to move from capitalism to commerce and trade, even a little mercantilism.

WTF! I can't quite believe you actually said that, Sulaiman!

Trump is, among other things, actively hostile to all of our environmental concerns.

I mean, he's actively engaged in removing all of Obama's protections so that his beloved corporations can pollute air, water and earth with total impunity...

He's also a rabid climate-denier who doesn't give a fuck for the concerns of ordinary people!

Now, Trump is not actively hostile to environmental concerns for Florida (issued a prohibition for offshore drilling in the sunshine state) where, of course, Trump has sizable real estate interest.

So Trump is just a calculating business man, who has avoided true divesting of his financial interests, and may shift into a strong climate protector as soon as his family acquires a financial interest that would greatly benefit from a pro-climate political agenda.

I also suspect when Trump begins to realize he is going to jail, and that he will have to drink the local water, perhaps water pollution may be on his agenda.

All and all, Trump is one of our more predictable Presidents, just follow the money trail.

Predictable in that you know his every utterance is a transparent, fucking lie!

Predictable in that you know he knows nothing about anything and he harbours fascist and overtly racist ideologies...

Hillary Clinton won the election by a decisive 3 million votes and a bunch of old white codgers handed that utter fucking scumbag the presidency!!!

Trump a fascist and racist? Perhaps some history on his father will help, to quote from a Feb 2016 CNN story (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/02/28/in... ):

"On Memorial Day 1927, brawls erupted in New York led by sympathizers of the Italian fascist movement and the Ku Klux Klan. In the fascist brawl, which took place in the Bronx, two Italian men were killed by anti-fascists. In Queens, 1,000 white-robed Klansmen marched through the Jamaica neighborhood, eventually spurring an all-out brawl in which seven men were arrested.

One of those arrested was Fred Trump of 175-24 Devonshire Rd. in Jamaica."

who was Trump's father.

So now we known more of his roots.

“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!

A crumb of truth snuck in at the end when he wasn't watching...

No.
That's just silly, isn't it.
Whatever his dad did has little if any effect on what Trump does now.

What he does is this
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racial_views_of_Donald_Trump
And this
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/donald-tru...

Now, can we leave President Trump out of things please and get back to discussing nice respectable shit?

Having environmental concerns for one state is like having a "no pissing" area in a swimming pool.

Can this get moved to whimsy or at least separate the politics.
Waste treatment is an interesting field from the chemical/biological point of view.
But the politics of it suck.
