Re: Thread to bash Democrats who don't support torturers, murderers, rapists, and kidnappers but have otherwise offended

Okay - here's one thing that kinda flipped me out. Before the whole #metoo thing, I always thought Al Franken was gay and Kevin Spacey was straight. I'm not offended. I got no problem if you're gay or straight. Just gotta take my gaydar down the shop and get it fixed. I thought Al Franken was gay t...

Re: Tonight's Doctor Who episode.

Oh yeah! We saw that in the spoilers last week. Of course the kids had to be reminded about who Rosa Parks was, so we played them this clip from that other classic British TV show, Horrible Histories:

Re: Thread to bash Democrats who don't support torturers, murderers, rapists, and kidnappers but have otherwise offended

Or we could look at macro solutions. Compulsory voting means major parties have to be fairly central if they want a snowball's chance at actually gaining government, while also allowing for fringe parties which can attract the freaks and weirdos. Added bonus - the government can't enact laws like ph...

JAMAL KASHOGGI! Maybe take the NA argument to PM? We dont need it in every thread.
You're right, I was wrong to bite when RC brought it up. I guess I'm still a bit on-edge for basically being called the next Hitler. Go figure.

Because heaven fucking forbid we try to tackle more than one problem at a time huh? It's like every time there's a shooting and the other side says we can't talk about gun control, let's talk about mental health instead. Because apparently humans are too small-minded to get nuance.

Re: Jamal Khashoggi murder... will it ensnare Trump?

This is quite suspicious to me. Given that we don't fully understand the Turkish agenda, and given that Turkey hasn't always behaved in a way to inspire a reputation for honesty, I would feel more comfortable with the conclusions of their investigation if they shared the audio: https://www.news.com....

When we do that, we're not a lot better than they are. Trump's taken enough from me; I refuse to let him take my voice. I'll leave this here again, since...

Re: Is there a middle ground anymore?

To me, "middle ground" and "middle of the road" mean support for the status quo. I've never been in support of that. If you want to accomplish change, you have to choose a side. If you oppose change, you have to choose a side. I think there's a lot that needs fixing, so I'm not in support of the mi...

Re: Jamal Khashoggi murder... will it ensnare Trump?

As CNN pointed out yesterday, so far, we only have second-hand reports (Turkish government leaking to Turkish media and then those accounts being picked up by the Western media.) Also as CNN reported yesterday, Turkey has an appalling history of its own when it comes to freedom of the press. I'm not...

My pet peeve: JT does not have the power to stifle your First Amendment rights. Only the government can do that and, when it does, that is a violation of freedom of speech.

And yes, I agree, 100%, that it is problematic. It is far from ideal. If we are to draw a line in the sand, we are giving power to groups like the CNO, who may not have what we would call the "right" interests at heart, and letting determine someone's "Indianness" based on their own criteria, which...
