The current situation is different. First of all, I suspect that the two reached a deal, that if Nixon would resign, sparing the country an impeachment and trial, Ford would pardon him. Since in this case the impeachment and trial has already happened, a Trump resignation would not spare us that. Furthermore, Pence is no idiot. He sees how the pardon hurt Ford, so why should a President Pence (assuming Trump were to resign) pardon the guy?.

Why can't Democrats and Republicans get along better?
They used to. But certain politicians like Newt Gingrich, put us on a war footing and we've never recovered.Google talk like Newt Gopac 1990.But it's not just him. Political extremists, of both the right and the left, thrive on discord.In addition, we are, biologically, a warlike and aggressive species. We war over territory and resources. It's part of our DNA. Blame testosterone for symphonies and carnage. And if we don't have an actual war, we have bear baiting, gladiatorial combat or superbowls. That's just who we are.Civilized behavior is a thin veneer, that has to be nourished and protected. It's not instinctive. this doesn't mean we don't also have loving and protective instincts, we do, but we're a complicated package as a species
------What are some common mistakes writers make when world-building?
Often, surprisingly, its the world building. Why would you write a story with such a huge complex extra dimension before you can even write a normal book?Write, publish and successfully sell a normal book before you contemplate such things.Why? Because SF and Fantasy authors think they are above rules of writing. Of course they are not, and then they complain when they get no respect from critics. Well they dont deserve any respect (Im not saying All SF/F writers, just most. PKD, for example, was a genius.)SF and Fantasy authors are like artists who think: Well, I cant ing draw worth a sh*t so Im going to paint abstracts.
It doesnt work like that.
------Will Donald Trump cause a third world war?
I know this might be an unpopular opinion, but Im going to say no. If Trump was going to start World War 3, he would need to get Russia involved. Russia wont fight though because we have too many allies that are sworn to help protect each other if one of us is attacked. Most of these countries are European countries, and all of them put together including the United States makes a very powerful alliance. World War 3 would look like China and Russia wanting to go to war with us because whoever we fought would need to be powerful enough to withstand a war against multiple European and a few American countries. War with Iran might be on the verge, but war with Iran doesnt necessarily mean World War 3. Thank you for listening to my ted talk.
------What happens if you lie in your CV?
It depends on what youre lying about.If you lie about a skill, you will most likely eventually be asked to demonstrate that skill if it is part of the job. When you cannot perform, they will find out that you lied.If you lie about a previous job, the company may call for a reference and find out you lied.
Most employers have a statement at the bottom of their application that requires applicants to sign swearing that all information contained in true. So, if you lie on the resume would you also lie on the application?Chances are, they will find out that you lied. While you may not get fired, they will always know that you were dishonest in the beginning.
------What went wrong with the History Channel? It seems nobody has any respect for it anymore.
These guys need to make enough money to pay the bills and stay alive.A few years ago, I was on a discussion board when someone made a similar comment about MTV - Why doesnt MTV return to its roots and play music videos anymore instead of all these House reality shows.It just so happened that the CEO of MTV happened to be lurking that evening, and he jumped on and went on a long tear about just what I stated above, in much more, profane detail, several long paragraphs, describing exactly what it takes to maintain a channel, pay the bills and keep your people fed, and how hard it was to make the decision to go the route they had to go to stay alive.
------Why was George Floyd arrested?
The arrest was unlawful.The police arrested him for forgery. But he was never accused of forgery. He was accused of passing a counterfeit bill that is a different crime.Minnesota Forgery and Counterfeiting Laws - FindLawWhy did the police lie and arrest him for forgery a crime he was not accused of? Because they did not have the power to arrest him for passing a counterfeit bill since they did not witness the eventSo why did the police lie and arrest him for forgery a crime he was not accused of committing? Because in Minnesota, forgery is one of five misdemeanors that an officer can make an arrest for without a warrant if they have not witnessed the event.Sec. 609.63 MN Statutes
------I think that Oberyn Martell knowingly sacrificed himself in exchange for the Mountain's confession. He did not lose due to hubris. Can you convince me otherwise?
I highly doubt Oberyn sacrificed himself.While Amory Lorch, the guy that killed Rhaenys, was dead and Oberyn assumed that he'd kill Gregor, it left one last person to blame for the murders of his sister, niece, and nephew. Tywin Lannister. There is no way on Earth that Oberyn would willingly die for anything less than his family before Tywin was killed.Speaking of his family he had eight daughters and his youngest was six when he died. I doubt a man, who loves his children, would willingly die knowing that his little girls are going to grow up horrified by not only Elia, Rhaenys, and Aegons deaths, but also the brutal death of their daddy who died the same way Elia did
------Will the USA have a chance of winning if it goes to war against China in the South China Sea?
Yes. USA will win the war over China.But not only in military terms.US created war in afganistan and Iraq. This led to the tumbling of oil price that benefits US the most and Russia the least.Now it is time to create a war with China to strengthen the US dollar. US had borrowed cheap dollar from many countries,with China the biggest lender. US needs it more than ever to threaten the world by launching a war. Then all money rush to US cheap. It will write off all its debt with cheap dollars.The war against China is not military but repeated history. Capitalism is all about capital, and that is the almighty power ruling this world. Countries take sides with the one that manipulates the capital flow through wars
------What would have happened to Israel if it had adopted Mahatma Gandhi's nonviolence policy?
Defending oneself is not violent. Will you let a bully keep on bullying your child and you do nothing about it. Your child will be scarred for life, not only physically but emotionally. Should Israelis government let Hamas shoot thousand of rockets into Israel without responding? By not responding, Israel will have conveyed the message to Hamas that it is weak. Only when a country is strong will it be able to protect its country from terrorist attacks, and from its enemies. You do not want to appear weak to your enemies. Your enemies will attack you if they know you are weak and they can be assured of a victory. If you are strong, they will think twice before attacking you less they be defeated resoundingly
------Whatu2019s the best way for a fantasy novelist to handle unavoidable exposition when world-building?
As far as I can tell, there are two ways to do this. The Clan of the Cave Bear series started with an extensive look at the material conditions of the last Ice Age and detailed what science currently knew about Neanderthals. The movie of the same name just plunged into the action without any of this background information, and I think the movie was awful because of this.
The Eye of the World series doesnt bother with explanations. We are brought directly into the action on the first page, and it works well. That fantasy world isnt as strange as the world of The Clan of the Cave Bear. TLOTR is kind of halfway between these two; Tolkien gave the Elves, Dwarves, and Orcs a history
------Why are so many IAS officers dying?
Q : Why are so many IAS officers dying ?The answer of the question is a question .Ans : Are the IAS officers immortal ?Now let me elaborate a bit ..The IAS officers are also human beings like others . The unnatural deaths of the officers is surely a concern for us all . But at the same time think about this also..1 . Why so many nuclear scientists are dying ?2 . Why so many whistle blowers are dying ?3 . Why so many farmers are dying ?4 . Why so many children are dying ?5 . Why so many soldiers are dying ?I feel people are less worried about these less powerful souls despite the rate is many fold higher than the concerned . They are not dying because of their own fault or personal reasons unlike IASs .
------If Rahul Gandhi criticizes the BJP government in centre, then almost all ministers, spokespersons, and big leaders of BJP attack Mr. Rahul Gandhi at the same time, why?
When rahul speaks many a times instead of criticising the ruling govt he is stepping into wrong path of spreading lies and rumors.He is failing to notice the thinnest line between attacking policy of the ruling govt and the policies laid down by the Constitution of india.If he dint know the truth the former cabinet ministers of UPA 1, 2 can be given the task to question the govt, but he is taking the responsibility to grab the headlines.
He ignores the timing to criticise the govt. THis is not acceptable to the ruling govt.If he is not attacked and put on right path the words which come from him due to ignorance or intended to harm the morale of the govt will go into ppl resulting into spreading lies and fake propaganda.
------Which one is the better song: "A Day in the Life" by the Beatles or "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin?
"A Day in the Life" is a better song for a few reasons. First, it broke a lot of boundaries as far as how long a popular song could be without becoming redundant or tedious; the words actually MEANT something, as opposed to Stairway, where the words were meaningless gibberish (as Robert has said in various interviews; i.e. "a nice, pleasant, well-meaning, naive little song, very English"); and lastly, if the Beatles' song canon (including "A Day in the Life") hadn't existed, it's very unlikely that Led Zeppelin would have even become famous in the first place. The Beatles opened the doors for every single other English band that came afterwards, and inspired thousands of English teenagers to form their own bands.
------What would have happened to Led Zeppelin had John Bonham not passed away?
Their last album was more or less a Plant Jones album with Page not having much to do with it and Bonham probably full blown alcoholic slob by that point. Bonham was always a large man but at the time of his death he was a fat slob and looked to be in his 50s then his 3233 years. The 80s music changed and only a few hard rocks act had a good go of it during that era. Bands like April Wine, Grand Funk Railroad and the Doobie Brothers were more or less dead by this time. We always ask questions what if and we like to have a romantic view of it but in many cases its best not to know what if
