Re: Gay Rights - LGBT - Same Sex Marriage

Rowling is dead to me. I keep being surprised that people are surprised by her. Her books were steeped in biological essentialism, with how you were born deciding what you could do and which society you were part of. The 'fight for rights' of the series followed the same model as 2nd feminism's whi...

Re: Ronapalooza 2020

I looked up Guilfoyle because I don’t know much about her. I was surprised to learn that she’s 51, nine years older than Jr. She certainly has that rode hard, put away wet look of so many trump women. She must have lied about her age. At age 51 a trump normally would have traded her in for a younge...

Herman Cain has developed symptoms that are serious enough that he has been hospitalized. He apparently attended both the Tulsa and Arizona rallies.

Re: Hijack this thread

I'll say it again. Your argument is specious. And your explanation of why "shunning" is bad is a straw man. No one is condoning shunning, as it is commonly used (cf. Jehovah's Witnesses). An individual on a public board choosing not to see the posts of a poster whose posts are upsetting to that ind...

Re: Dams break in Michigan

That's pretty much true of a lot of rural areas of the country. They used to teach that in history classes, but people seem to have conveniently forgotten all about that history.

We sold our rural house in 2018 and moved to a smaller, newly built suburban house much closer to health facilities (our closest hospital is now one mile) and shopping. I desperately miss one feature of our old house. Not long after we moved there, we converted part of the garage into a mudroom. Not...

Sorry to hear that Sugar.

My mom told me last night that my uncle in Michigan has COVID-19. He had been in a care facility for several years and apparently it is spreading there. His health has gone downhill quickly.
My uncle died this morning.
