Re: President Biden?

as a point of historical fact, I think you'll find that the voters didn't reject Obama. He ran for President on two occasions, and on both those occasions was voted into office.

Re: President Biden?

Just for the sake of the audience who may have missed it, would you mind clarifying that you were wrong in a matter of fact here - that Trump was, indeed, impeached?

Re: President Biden?

You are once again demonstrating your inability to separate facts from flights of fancy. Trump was impeached - the third president in the history of the country to have been impeached. Impeachment,...

Re: President Biden?

Has it? Did they?

It seems to me that Bannon, Giuliani and their not-very-ept band of hacks and hackers have fabricated a web of plausible, but almost wholly made-up, crap that doesn't pass even...

Re: 2020 Election

W the actual F?

Thirteen arrests - six on Federal charges, seven on State charges. The "Wolverine Watchmen" - which appears at first glance to be a right-wing militia with ties to white...

Re: Enter the Wokeness

Indeed, which brings us back to the case Shard mentioned. Where the child agrees with the experts, there's no issue; the difficulty lies where they disagree. In the case of the now 23-year-old...

Re: 2020 Election

Now we've sorted that out, I'm also intrigued to learn what this "prospefity" is that he talks about. Is that covfefe for wealthy people?

Re: Enter the Wokeness

I'm relieved. I thought from the way I read your earlier comment that you were leaning in the opposite direction. And of course, you're right that there is a possibility for errors in both...

Re: Enter the Wokeness

That's not how judgements work. The only decision that matters is that of the highest court to have heard the case. It doesn't make one iota of difference how many high court and appelate judges...

Re: Enter the Wokeness

...which is precisely why I highlighted that the case currently before the courts could upset existing precedent if the judges find for the plaintiffs. I had forgotten the specifics of the Gillick...

Re: WORDS

I think we may have been down this road before, but there are indeed a surprising number of "contronyms" or "autoantonyms." Here are a few:

Re: Netflix Documentaries

I "watched" that the other evening. I was very tired, though, and may possibly have closed my eyes for a few moments in the middle... the first 10 minutes and the last 10 minutes were good, I'll have...

Re: Enter the Wokeness

"Child abuse" is a very strong term in this context. Which side, plaintiff or defendant, to you see as being guilty of child abuse in this case? Is it the defendant NHS Trust who is providing the...

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

Good heavens. Here's something on which I agree wholeheartedly with Paulry (well, excapt on the spelling of the author's name, but we'll let that pass). I read Allen Carr's book in 2002, having been...

Re: Enter the Wokeness

What exactly is the EU not managing - or at least mitigating? I seem to remember that the EU coordinated a response to the Mediterranean refugee crisis in the mid-2010s, and has been supporting...

Re: President Trump

yeah, that's going to come back to bite him if the auditors follow the trail. I read that the nominal company that Ivanka washed that consulting fee through had income exactly equal to the consulting...

Re: Public schools indoctrinating kids

I read Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead in my early twenties (or possibly late teens). I thoroughly disliked the character of Howard Roark, and that rather clouded my judgement of The...

Re: Let's talk about cars

Yeah, this. I am in minivan territory (don't ask...) but definitely a fan of Honda. My first Odyssey wasn't particularly heavily used, it did 150,000-ish km (a bit shy of 100,000 miles) in 11 years,...

Re: Let's talk about cars

I'm in Canada, but I can't imagine the hybrid "regular" sedans are not available in SoCal! Your gas may be expensive by US standards, but I think we got you beat there ;)

Re: Let's talk about cars

If you're looking at Civic/Accord you might want to take in the Corolla/Camry option as well. No personal experience, but a colleague got a Camry hybrid last fall and has been v impressed with...

Re: Enter the Wokeness

OK. Stop. Read back what you wrote. "The false demon is that there is some kind of ongoing oppression."

The obvious conclusion we must draw from this is that you think there is no ongoing...
