We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Perhaps it's time for the more militant anti-abortion folks to start confronting these "pro-choice" advocates with cries of "Murderer! Baby Killer! Stop the Black Genocide!" and start throwing bags of blood on them. Oh, and confronting them in public places at every opportunity. After all, sauce for the goose...
So the mother of the just-turned 10 year-old took her daughter to a clinic, which then reported the offense to the authorities. And ever since, the poor little girl has been a football, first for a self-aggrandizing, self-righteous abortion progressive abortion advocate who is also a doctor, and then by a grand-standing Republican Ohio DA who called the story phony because he didn't check his own records. Nice work, you paragons of ethical virtue. Thank you for your service!
What's worse: Being an illegal immigrant sex offender that rapes a 9 year old multiple times and impregnates her, or being a middle-aged, college-educated doctor and violating your professional/ethical oaths to elevate the incident into a news story for your righteous cause, transporting the child to a different state for dramatic effect when the medical procedure is legally available locally?
Is her license under a cloud pending an inquiry? Will the DA drop the story, set the record straight, or keep mining it? Or will this be the same kind of outcome from a law enforcement and justice system that has facilitated the illegal alien's presence here (for the past 7 years) in the first place? The judge has already said that holding the offender without bond, due to flight risk, is unreasonable - so bond is set at $2 million.
The leaders of Sri Lanka have destroyed their economy and now their population is facing famine. Because of this the people rose up against their government, as they should have. But... it now appears that the leaders have requested that the army "restore order by any means necessary". I wonder what that means???
I think we are about to see why we have a 2nd amendment and why people need AR-15's and 30 round magazines.
Shout out to Canada; pay attention. Just saying. Your proud , elite Canadian Mounties quickly embraced oppression to quell a peaceful protest of your governments over reach.
Imagine that AOC approves of the harassment of SCOTUS judges and says it is just part of being a public servant. Then imagine that when she gets harassed she doesn't think it is right anymore and resorts to calling it "sexual harassment" I guess because her harasser is a man and she is a women so therefore it must be sexual harassment. If that doesn't work she will play the race card no doubt.
"What to do when a nuke hits." Good grief. Maybe if you are 10 or more miles from the blast point.
I worked in downtown Dallas back in the early 80's. My take was that if we got the 20-minute warning of a nuclear strike, the only reasonable option would be to walk outside and wait for it. Can't leave - roads are blocked; can't run - where? can't hide - buildings will collapse on you. So, best choice is a bright flash and nothing.
