Except they consider legitimate criticism of religion to be insulting as well. Why should religion be immune from jokes, criticism or insults? Nothing else in this world is.

There is no excuse to attack someone, certainly not based on a religion.
Everyone keeps talking about Sandy, the role she is most known for. Yes that is fantastic so many people have so many fond memories of her in that roll and those songs. But, for me, her best role was Kira in Xanadu. I remember hearing her on the radio in the 1970s singing "Let Me Be There"...Jump to post
Ok, who is then? Attorney General maybe? Just been doing some reading up on how this all works in the US, so that would be my guess. No help from the audience. Nik made the claim, let Nik answer. AG?

I suspect the average Trumper won't link the two because they've been told it's a witch-hunt. To reach the conclusion you're suggesting would require the application of logic and reason, which are in short supply amongst the folks putting their hands in their pockets to fund this circus. If the evi...Jump to post
Why should they? Especially the fact that it's likely an active investigation. You can always submit an FOIA request, of course... No need, they will have to tell us if they decide to charge him.

We can of course debate the political nature of Russian courts or, indeed, their penal code. But that’s really besides the point; Ms. Griner knowingly brought drugs into Russia, and I have zero sympathy for her facing the consequences of that action.

They will probably do a deal in the new year. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-62427635 Reports in US media suggest imprisoned Russian arms trafficker Viktor Bout - known as the Merchant of Death - could be transferred by Washington to the Russian authorities as part of the deal.

She's on the ground. Pink suit and all. Though I am against all her politics she does have a lot of style. That is so big of you to say.

the most shocking thing is how low this reservoir is at the moment. it is only holding less than 30% of its max capacity or almost 60meters (200feet) below max capacity.

No. If I had my way, the majority of people in the country would decide the president and not a handful of Republicans. Your statement makes no sense. The deciding votes are not republicans they are independents. Trump won with people that voted for Obama the election before. I have said in the pas...Jump to post

Sorry, you can't have it both ways. You say US policy was to be "needed" by Europe and you didn't like it. Then Trump comes along and wants to cut you free, and you still don't like it. Yet, on the Ukraine thread, you keep pulling for Putin. What does that say about you? America chooses t...Jump to post

There is no longer a filibuster on Judicial nominees, that ended during Harry Reid's term as majority senate leader, all recent appointees have been confirmed without a filibuster (less than 60 votes).

whereas Texas ans Arizona are trending leftwards, as seen by recent elections.
That said, how do two mostly white, poorly-educated rural states (KY and ME) have so much power in the Senate right now?

You're probably right, there are a lot of Republicans like Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger who would likely gladly cheat to help a Democrat beat Trump.
