    ....what a dumbass....

    A fine is the least they should get.
    Trump vs Biden would be like Mike Tyson vs. a 3-year-old.

    God created trillions and trillions of stars and is able to maintain the entire universe. Why does this idiot think a deity that powerful, needs the help of a clown.

    And here I thought I'd already seen the day's stupidest comment. Reading that actually gave me a headache.

    I'll answer, as I happen to know something about this topic. Within any kind of porous stone, there is a mostly invisible cycle of hydration and dehydration. Microscopic drops of water seep into the stone during the wetter parts of the year, and freeze during winter. The drops are so small that it doesn't really matter to the integrity of the stone (though this process is part of how, over milenia, large stones become dust). However, when this process is blocked in part of a stone and allowed to continue in another, over time, it can cause the stone to crack and crumble.

    Additionally, oil can nourish organisms that can live inside the pores of the stone and break it down faster (mosses, lichens, etc).

    So yeah, putting a bunch of oil on a porous stone like marble, rhyolite, dacite, or man-made concrete (from photos it looks like the steps to the Washington capitol building are made of dacite or concrete--but of course I cannot be sure) will cause damage over time, and lead to the stone needing to be replaced much sooner than it otherwise would.

    So your saying they didnt put sealant on their steps? Sealant goes on my concrete.

    They may have, but sealant wears down over time. In the case that they used natural stone, putting sealant on it would interrupt the natural hydraulic process and also lead to the stone fracturing.

    If the oil seeped in, as the story indicates, there wasn't a good coat of sealant on the steps.

    Yup, about 1/3 of Gaetz's merry little band already were entitled to attend by virtue of their membership on the committees holding the hearing.

    It's nothing but a show of look how crazy I can be and it's all the fault of the dreaded liberals. I cannot believe how low and crazy the gop has become. Running around spouting fake news and every institution in america hates trump our savior. It's nuts.
