Interesting. You’d think it’d be an old trick by now, though.
«3 billion people rely on cooking over open fires or primitive stoves. Most use wood. Women average 15 hours per week collecting firewood, subjecting themselves to sexual assault. Women and children become ill and die breathing cookstove smoke. Firewood harvesting causes deforestation. The black carbon emitted from these cookstoves is a major contributor to climate change.
Amazingly, the simple and free act of placing rocks in these cookstoves cuts firewood usage by a third and smoke is greatly reduced, too. Kevin McLean, Sun24’s president, says: “The women love using rocks in their cookstoves because they spend much less time collecting firewood and their family breathes much less smoke.”»
I say this a lot: too much focus on a single bad guy. The problem is Trumpism, not Trump. Just as the problem was Republicans, not Bush.

We’ve been focused on the beating Trump at all costs thing and now there’s no Trump and, oh crap, how do we recalibrate? Do we have the right candidate? Now, I’m not saying this is a sure thing. In fact, it is probably just the result of too much morning caffeine.
Still being politically incorrect, I see.

I think you should lean into it, @ewarren. There’s a uniquely American story here, of assimilation with its triumphs and tragedies. You could also talk about bad advice to game the system and youthful mistakes, maybe.
«“Cabello is one of the worst of the worst inside of Venezuela,” said Fernando Cutz, a former senior national security adviser on Latin America to both President Barack Obama and Trump. “If the strategy is to try to negotiate with the mafia boss, he’s your guy. But that’s a strategy that carries some heavy risks.”»
