Sorry didn't mean that to come across so condescending. I don't use math much in my current job either. But previous jobs I have used it extensively to solve problems that could not be done without advanced math.

Calculus is only useless until you need to solve a real problem. Which is really the useful part about math in general. If your "technical field" job consists of putting together spreadsheets, then I agree, you don't need math. But then you aren't really qualified to talk about whether or not it is useful or not.

Climate Catastrophe

"I wish climate alarmists would weigh its accomplishments against the relatively small downsides of climate change. One of industry's biggest accomplishments is creating a world where far fewer of us are likely to die because of weather." You have to remember that the people promoting human-caused climate change are the same people that think there are already too many humans on the planet. In other words, fewer people dying means even more climate change. And so the real problem just keeps getting worse (that we are all still alive).
European Union spokeswoman says it is "a commitment that should be enshrined in law." Wait, I thought the whole UN hissy-fit was because they think it already is enshrined in law.
US Embassy Turkey: "we condemn today’s attack in Istanbul, and have no doubt the vast majority of Turks would join us in rejecting an action that so disrespects Turkey’s reputation for hospitality." Which means nothing. Where is the Turkish goverment's (and people) condemnation of the attacks?
Actually, Halleck should put a sign in his own yard. Include a picture of Kimberly Edson and her whole family, saying they have no weapons in the house across the street.

Obama Behind Pumpkin Patch Melee

Gunner - not really. Obama was elected (and re-elected) based on his promises to fix every problem America has.
They are monitoring the local politicians and community leaders. That way when martial law is declared, the "competent" people will still be healthy and in charge.
I would hope that any American citizen travelling out of the country could not be banned from re-entering the US just based on the word of some unelected bureaucrat. I'm all for detaining them when they come back though, then trying them for treason or any other crimes committed. I hope you all recall the long list of petty differences in lifestyle that people in the current administration think should get you labeled as terrorists.
If "God bless" was the commonly used phrase used by terrorists before beheading or blowing up their victims, then your comparison might begin to make a tiny bit of sense. Probably more people would be offended by a public employee addressing them with non-English comments though.
