The last time the Finns and the Russians (Soviets at the time) engaged in battle Simo Häyhä earned the nickname "White Death" by killing more than 500 Russians in the Simo Simo Häyhä 100 day Turkey Shoot know as the Winter War. The dude shot 500 Russians in 100 days in the winter with temps in the -40˚ range. Yeah, with like 6 hours per day of daylight.

The PR wing of the Democratic Party is terrified. Maybe if they say nothing the boogie man will go away. Probably not.
James Comey In Panic Mode
He should be. Hillary will not come to his aid like he did to hers. He is the scapegoat, he is beginning to recognize that now.
What Could Possibly Go Wrong? — Torches and Pitchforks
James Woods suplexes Zuckerberg over an idiotic idea!
Watch the entire video below but the part in interest is after 25:00.
Deng Xiaoping realized that socialism was an abject failure which was destroying the Chinese people not benefiting them. He understood that the Maoist way would end up in an anti-socialist revolution which would throw out the Chinese Communist Party.
Xi Jinping has chosen the Stalinist totalitarian system instead. This will not end well. It is much more likely that Xi's model will ultimately lead to war. As a socialist totalitarian dictator's run into economic problems they need to find an enemy to orient the people against. The US has been the world's all-purpose enemy since 1945. Further, China is trying to rebuild regional suzerainty through a tribute model by using the Belt and Road initiative and other mechanisms to bind the nations surrounding it as tributary vassal states.
Two interesting reminders from the 2016 presidential election
"Huffington Post prediction, timestamped 12:43 a.m., EST, November 8.
"Donald Trump won this one Beverly Hills neighborhood while Clinton took rest of liberal Westside.'"
The timestamp shows that Huffpo's model was showing Clinton winning 98% of the time to Trump's 1.7%. They must have used one of the climate alarmists to build this model! One should rely on neither electoral nor climate models.

Like most other American high school students, Garret Morgan had it drummed into him constantly: Go to college. Get a bachelor's degree.
"All through my life it was, 'if you don't go to college you're going to end up on the streets,' " Morgan said. "Everybody's so gung-ho about going to college."
So he tried it for a while. Then he quit and started training as an ironworker, which is what he is doing on a weekday morning in a nondescript high-ceilinged building with a concrete floor in an industrial park near the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
Morgan and several other men and women are dressed in work boots, hard hats and Carhartt's, clipped to safety harnesses with heavy wrenches hanging from their belts. They're being timed as they wrestle 600-pound I-beams into place.
