    I suppose you're right. That's a rather blasé reason. There are literally thousands of reasons for wanting to build a massively parallel supercomputer.

    Battleground-state Dems who opposed Kavanaugh all defeated
    Incumbent Senate Democrats in battleground states who opposed the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination appeared to have paid a price on Election Day, with senators Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Indiana's Joe Donnelly, Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Florida's Bill Nelson all suffering defeat.

    In fact, every Democrat incumbent who opposed Kavanaugh in states rated "toss up" by Fox News lost their race. In contrast, the lone Democrat who voted for Kavanaugh, Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, won his race.

    A Mob Showed Up Outside Tucker Carlson’s House And Ordered Him To ‘Leave Town’

    A mob showed up outside Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s house Wednesday evening, posted pictures of his address online and demanded that he flee the city of Washington, D.C.

    At least one of the protesters went all the way up to Carlson’s front door, where they left a sign with his family’s home address written on it and rang his doorbell. Carlson’s wife Susie was home alone at the time.

    The group posted video footage to Twitter showing one of the mob’s ringleaders leading the crowd in chants of “racist scumbag, leave town!” and “Tucker Carlson, we will fight! We know where you sleep at night!”

    “No borders! No walls! No USA at all!” the protesters chanted in another video posted to Twitter.

    ‘They were threatening me and my family’: Tucker Carlson’s home targeted by protesters

    “I called my wife,” Carlson told The Washington Post in a phone interview. “She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming. ... Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.”

    His wife, thinking it was a home invasion, locked herself in the pantry and called 911, Carlson said. The couple have four children, but none were home at the time.

    Their conduct was beyond the pale. They should be prosecuted.

    I would not agree with much that Carlson talks about. However, it is total BS when an angry mob is pounding on your door. People need to compose themselves when someone disagrees with their viewpoint. One day someone may be pounding on their door wanting to get at them as well.

    I've never watched his show but know of him from the news on dailymail lately...This kind of action should never happen in America, protesting publicly and peaceful is one thing, but invading someone's private property ordering them to leave, and the other words they shouted "no USA at all" is disturbing...

    At least five dead, Paradise ‘pretty much destroyed’ as wildfire rages in Northern California

    "PARADISE, Calif. — Homes were swallowed by the raging flames. Cars and trucks were left melting in the road. And thousands of residents of this remote Northern California town fled for their lives as a fast-moving wildfire roared across Butte County, about 90 miles north of state capital Sacramento, in what was quickly declared a state emergency.

    "The Camp Fire has left a horrifying trail of death and destruction in its wake. The Butte County Sheriff’s Office said Friday that five people were killed in Paradise, their bodies found in vehicles that had been overcome by the flames. There have been additional reports of deaths in the fire zone, but those have not yet been confirmed, the sheriff’s office said, because “the fire is still active, and there are many hazards in areas where fatalities have been reported.”

    "By early Friday morning, nearly 110 square miles had been burned in a fire that was 5 percent contained, officials said. At least 2,000 structures were destroyed, with thousands more threatened and more than 50,000 people were evacuated across the region.

    “Pretty much the community of Paradise is destroyed,” Cal Fire Capt. Scott McLean said at a news conference, according to the Associated Press. “It’s that kind of devastation.”
