America, USA–After three years of impeachment by the Democrats, president Trump has been acquitted. He won’t be removed from office. And the time wasted by the left will never be given back.
Now that Trump has bee acquitted, what’s next? Will the news media move on to positive stories about the administration? Will progressives work with the president to better the country?
The answer is most likely “no”.
I am guessing the president will keep winning: the economy, the jobs, the unemployment numbers, the stock market, etc. And I am guessing the Democrats will continue their failed crusade against president Trump, at the taxpayers expense. The show must go on.

Saint Paul, MN–Over the next three years the city of Saint Paul will give $3 million dollars (in $50 allotments) of taxpayer money to newborns in hopes that savings accounts generate college degrees. Giving out money to make progress based on cherry-picked data, that seems legit, and Democratic.
MPR recently highlighted CollegeBound Saint Paul in an article titled, “Welcome to the world, and here’s 50 bucks for college“. In light of the limited data and the funding involved, this program should be called TaxpayerBound Saint Paul, to emphasize where the financial gift is coming from: citizens’ pocketbooks.
To clarify, the population of St Paul is 304,442 in 2016; the number of participants in the Center for Social Development’s study was 1,554 in 2013. That means the results of this study make up less than .5% of the population of the very city where this program is being implemented.
For compassion sake, to give children a fighting chance at getting an education is an honorable goal, a very progressive idea, especially done right with much research, scientific method, and proof of positive outcomes. However, to create programs funded with taxpayer dollars on scant information is reckless and poorly thought out.
I will end with this, as with any economic idea, time will tell. The truth will show itself as the aid gives way to the unrealistic promises in expensive programs. Economic ideas that work thrive over time. Economic ideas that do not work go bust, just after the politician that created them leaves office, most likely in 18 to 20 years down the line when we have no recollection of these programs or their champions or their intent in the first place.

St Paul, MN–Perhaps, in an effort to combat the melting of glaciers due to almost certain man-made climate change, it seems the city of St Paul has welcomed all glaciers to St Paul side streets no matter size, no matter age, nor water body of origin.
This truly progressive effort by the city stresses inclusiveness, diversity, equity, and open-mindedness in relation to factual, emotional, and physical sciences, boldly in a world of climate nano-, micro-, and macro- aggression(s).
Not only will this apparent effort of non-snow-removal stifle climate change locally, it will also work in conjunction with the Green New Deal, The Paris Agreement, and Greta Thornberry’s climate agenda, in general.
Let’s look at the possibilities brought on by saving the street glaciers in St Paul.
Saving the street glaciers in St Paul can:
Limit carbon emissions for the city–no more snowplows on our streets, no more dangerous exhaust fumes. This will cut carbon emissions drastically, today, leading to a cleaner and safer world for all tomorrow. It’s really very simple!
Limit petrol use and promote renewable energy resources–no more using gasoline, no more hazardous fossil fuels. We all wanted that, right? This is one step closer to the Green New Deal, and we can start doing it today, forget delaying gratification–that’s a waste of time! If the roads are impassable right now then they will not be used, right now.Simple common sense.
Reduce costs of city streets, period –eliminate streets all together, the city would save so much money if the streets were turned into one giant sidewalk/bike lane. In fact, we could use gravel, a renewable resource made of rocks from the earth and outer space. If there are no streets there are no costs to fix the streets. That’s huge savings. Again, make these very same depleted streets into green spaces, sidewalks, or bike lanes. They could even be made out of repurposed plastic grocery bags. That’s really planning for transportation of the future. Let’s get ahead of the game!
To summarize, these underrepresented and under-appreciated street glaciers can seasonally curtail our coming climate change catastrophe by reducing the temperatures brought on by man-made climate change.
So the next time you attempt to traverse the streets of St Paul and you encounter a street glacier, just remember, you are doing your community and your planet (and the future human race) a major justice by conforming to the Green New Deal and making the planet’s health a priority. Thank you!
