Bellend and ------,
When you find yourself supporting a fascist dictator, even a short, fat, bald one, over an American president on any issue, you are in the wrong. Putin has invaded multiple countries on his borders using techniques directly from the Nazi playbook. Their excuses are 19th century colonialism twaddle.
Biden's approach has been to support a democratic government being invaded by its neighbor on the flimsiest of excuses. He is the champion of liberty in this time, as Putin is the champion of rape, murder, and theft.
And Bellend, like we did with Hitler and with the Soviets, we throw whatever it takes at the task in order to defeat them. They will be defeated unless the world's conservatives are successful at getting us to kneel at Putin's/ Xi's feet. China is our enemy and will be for so long as communism exists. Our business community is slowly cutting our throat by exporting our manufacturing capability to China. When the war comes, we may not have sufficient manufacturing capacity to win.
Your kind will be remembered as the quislings are remembered, if at all.
Once again, conservatives are in favor of regulating other people. If someone inverted this logic and made a law that said single parents, who actually need more financial help, pay less taxes, they would declare it unconstitutional.
Tor, I missed where it made having multiple wives a marriage for the purposes of this bill, so getting multiple lesbians pregnant won't land you a tax decrease. The attempt will likely land you with multiple child support cases and would require you to move to Texas. If you should decide to do so anyway, stay out of the low lying areas e.g. southern Texas.
It is part of a national movement to return to Happy Days when straight white christian men ran the world and everyone else obeyed. Used to be that the Supreme Court could be counted on to limit out of control legislation like this but since the conservatives corrupted the court by appointing a super majority of hacks from the Federalist Society, that is no longer the case.
Congrats, you voted to continue support for the illegal drug industry in your state.
On the other hand, 2300+ dispensaries in your state? Is every other state around OK dry or are you guys just massive stoners?
On the third hand, keeping the clumsy legal fiction of a medical card isn't going to reduce the number of dispensaries. Also, if OK follows the usual practice of adding a sin tax to non-medical weed, most of the existing card holders will continue with the medical program because its cheaper.
So what is the logic of keeping it illegal for those people too lazy to get a medical card?
Next, what exactly is disingenuous about the sales pitches: "More money for schools" and "Cops won't have to chase after dopers anymore; they can go on to fight real crime"?
Finally, Driving Under the Influence is and should always be a crime regardless of whether you are under the influence of alcohol, meth, weed, or any other mind altering substance. DUI's and the meth/fentanyl problem are what your LEO should be focused on rather than weed, they are far more deadly.
Let the BotWars begin, a million screeching chatbots bombarding the world with twaddle in order to produce a desired result for politicians, corporations, governments, anyone with big bucks.
Tune out man, save your mind from the coming flood of intellectual grey sludge. ;P
E1G1, any of our opponents potentially benefit from having our country run by he who is orange and shall not be named.
Speaks, Muskie is a bot. Total AI creation used by the real Elon to win friends and influence people......
The Russian people will not win freedom until they do to the Kremlin what the French did to the Bastille. Tear it down and allow nothing to ever be built there again.
Show us on this doll, where the evil demonrat woman touched you.
She identifies as a governor.
This is what happens when a political party decides that crazy sells better than tax cuts for the wealthy and corporate personhood.
Yes dear, today's Republican Party are perfect shining Patriots defending the Republic against the commie Demonrat hordes.
Here's your sign.
Multi-time loser. The question seems to be, Is this man:
Plankton don't have exoduses. If the ocean temperatures rise to the point where oxygen levels drop too low, the plankton will die not move elsewhere.
They are largely floaters that move with the currents. Assuming the ocean conveyor current systems do not collapse, they will move plankton into and out of low O2 areas. Too long in low O2 areas and they die.
Poorly written article, though it might get better, I couldn't stay with it long enough to find out.
Like most radical ideologues, the far right in Israel is seeking total control over their society. They are following the same path as Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, etc. Authoritarians suppress dissent, it is how they operate. The whole situation is made worse by all the azzhats that think they are holey.
I have read that the Putin government has been spending on the order of 300M USD / year to support fascist leaning political parties and causes i.e. Trump / Brexit. The only way for Imperial Russia to rise is for Western Europe / US to fall. Google it.
They are fools because without US and Western Europe, China would eat their lunch. This is what happens when a bald dwarf dictator who believes his own press is running a country.
There is no atrocity unexplored in the Middle East. The area has been dipped in blood for thousands of years. By this point, there are no innocents except the children and they generally buy into the madness by adulthood. This is a choice on everyone's part. Until they all decide to end it, it will continue.
That might happen sooner if we cut the Israel off but that won't happen because: certain Liberals feel guilty that the Holocaust occurred - so the survivors must be supported, even when they are in turn being evil, and certain Christian sects think that they can arrange for Armageddon on their schedule and the Prophesy Countdown starts with the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple (not sure which version) and resumption of making burnt offerings there to the Lord which requires a Jewish State.
Did you know that there are those in this country, and elsewhere, that are so certain that the end times are coming in this generation that they are breeding special cattle and sheep to use as burnt offerings? And others are making up special garb for the priests to wear and gear for the temple - lamps and such. All holey and pure and blessed and such using genuine methods derived from the bible, one of them anyway.
Someone should send Mabel a large block of american cheese and a few hundred crackers. Oh wait, they already did that the last part.
If you are serious, then you haven't been paying attention. Rupert Murdoch is an agent of chaos.
Fox regularly acts to divide the country against itself, to poison our alliances, praise our enemies, and question the very basis of our republic.
Those do not seem like the activities of an organization with the best interests of our country at heart. I used to joke that Murdoch must have been recruited by the KGB to destroy America and the West. I don't make that joke anymore.
Funny, but I am sure it was a phase.
More seriously, a generation prior to that it likely would have been blackface.
Are you going full on "hair on fire" over drag queens reading stories to children? How many public strip shows are there in TN? Is there any degree of difference between a man in a dress reading stories to children (whose parents bring them to the performance) and a woman stripping on a street corner in Nashville?
Are you old enough to remember Uncle Milty? How about Bugs Bunny? Hell at one point or another most black and white era male movie stars ended up in a dress, it was a running gag.
Its amazing we survived.
Would a woman in a tux singing in public, say Lady Gaga, be in violation of this edict? How many items of non-gender approved clothing would cause a performance to become cross-dressing? Who is responsible to maintain a list of approved gender specific clothing?
This is nothing more than conservatives winding up the base so that they do not notice that the party is attempting to destroy social security and further reduce the tax burden on the wealthy by using payroll taxes to replace income/estate taxes.
Never trust a conservative, they only tell the truth if it serves their self-interest better than a lie.
Naught Six Sixty Six repeats, its a mental process not really all that related to thought.
He either doesn't realize or is deliberately ignoring the level of effort required to establish, charge, and convict a former President of the United States for crimes ranging from sexual assault, tax fraud, real estate fraud, election fraud, mishandling of classified documents, inciting rebellion, perhaps even to treason. First catch the small fry, turn them, catch higher level actors, rinse and repeat. It worked with the mob bosses (for the most part ;)) and it will wrinkle out the traitors in the end.
Treason is not a constitutionally protected activity.
On the lighter side, new favorite nicknames:
She fellated him for years, on television, and now she thinks he's dumb? She should be in the Chaos Caucus.
#33, you know those probes aren't just looking? They leave behind alien nanites. As soon as the worldwide nanite density is sufficient, they will activate and reduce the earth to grey sludge, --- first as it were.
On the serious side, the "Fermi Paradox" is as close to science as philosophy gets, but still meaningless noise. I wonder if this is what cosmologists think about when they are stoned / drunk?
Keep looking, find out just how far the rot has spread. Is it only the Republican party that is on the receiving end of the foreign money unleashed by Citizen United?
Now the party is a shambling zombie of itself. Nixon brought in the Ku Klux Kaucus. Reagan brought in the Holy Rollers. Trump brought in the anarchists and the conspiracy fringe. Not sure who the Bushs' appealed to. They are running the show now, the old guard are out.
And the MTG who sits on the House Homeland Security Committee just called for "national divorce"
"We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat's [sic] traitorous America Last policies, we are done."
What a mess.
Hmmm, wonder if when her body hit the ground, if she just kept on going down?
Twinpac, what is to consider? The Republican party as currently constituted, has broken the trust as no other political party in American history has ever done. It should be punished, even destroyed. However, we need a sane conservative party and who would replace the Republican party?
The problem is that while we need a conservative party to keep the liberals grounded, it has to be sane. Force America to choose between a sane liberal party and an insane conservative party, and we will make the right choice. Fingers crossed.

Never touch the stuff, its mind meth. It feeds on its audience even as it destroys them.
Eberly, re #13, no we live in a society that is getting better despite everything Murdoch Co and the vast right wing conspiracy can do to stop us. Quit equivocating, in this time, there are quantifiable differences between the goals and methodologies used by conservatives vice liberals. It is conservatives that threaten the Republic. If they take up arms against us, we will destroy them as we did the last bunch of yahoos who got too big for their britches. Hopefully they will step back from the brink but there are a lot of minimally sane / intelligent people in leadership positions in conspiracyland.
Boaz, wake up. They have, by their own words and sworn testimony, lied to you and continue to lie to you. Don't you ever get tired of being whipped to a froth by proven liars? Have you ever questioned why the foreigner, Murdoch, was allowed to buy up much of our fourth estate? Have you ever questioned why he came here and began to pump out far right propaganda? Doesn't make you a tiny bit angry when someone lies to your face and expects you to be stupid enough to believe it??
