There's a reason Trump loaded the supreme court. It greatly improves his survivability for total disregard of US law. All he wants to do is delay until he can get a Republican president (maybe himself) to pardon him. Trump nominated judges have already shown how much they value their pre-validation ...Jump to post
We thought that it would be challenging to replace Orange Boris with anyone worse. Fortunately it seems that the Conservative Party had plenty of choices. We now even have a noted climate denier as climate minister. Worse, accepting Truss was sufficently bad to finish off ER! I'm sorry world, the an...Jump to post
Given that Boris has admitted that he doesn't know how many offspring he has and Trump is a well documented octopus and, taking into account what is nowadays described as dancing, I do not see anything wrong in her behaviour, or any reason to supsect inapproporate behaviour.Jump to post
Honestly, and I admit some will object, anyone can be who they like. My pet rabbit annoys me when he drops mice on the foot of the bed andd then meows until I feed him.

So, it's unconstitutional to nomate a senior judge in an election year if POTUS is a Democrat but totally accepatable if POTUS is republican.
No bias here!
That the said judges have promised in front of congress not to overturn Roe vs Wade and then do so is totally in keeping with Republican morales
According to one senator "all life is created in gods own image" - I'll bet he isn't a vegan!
And even if he is Plant Life?
I'm thinking that the PC in question lacks the nerve endings to feel things.
But it's a great way for an engineer to get free publicity. No deaths involved! They're normally only in the news after a major disaster.

I think one thing that might affect Canadian attitude on the issue compared to American, is probably that most Canadian live in urban area, instead of the US where there are many people and especially many number of states that aren't urban-centric?

Presumably birth certificates are sufficent to identify probable genetic gender.
Or have we reached the point of:
"Is it a boy or a girl?"
"I don't know. It hasn't decided yet."

Cheap talk when you are living at the other side of the planet. Instead of you, I have also something to lose. With all due respect, no country is safe in the event of nuclear warfare.

While China is somewhat immune because of all the economic ties to the West, India might be different. They chose short-term deals on oil over long-term ties with the West.

Call me a cynic, but: America is in shock, and people are outraged, one side of the aisle will call for gun control, the other side will call for anything but gun control, and in the end, nothing will change. 1 mass shooting on average per week, if the politics are not acting, then politicians have...Jump to post
