There's very rarely a good guy with a gun when you need one, which makes a mockery of 2A. The 2A wasn't created so that crime would be guaranteed not to happen.

Can we try to stop being quite so negative on this ? Yes, the awarding of the World Cup to Qatar was corrupt, but it is what it is.

I, personally, believe that there is life on other planets, because of evolution they are not all carbon based. What is the gravitational pull of dying stars?

No predictions here. It’ll be a R Congress, however, not a prediction; a certainty. Fear and hate, alright.

What liberties have you lost the l...Jump to post

The US doesn't even display the real price of items at a convenience store so why would anyone expect them to do it for car hire or hotels?
The first time I discovered that I couldn't buy 99c worth of food for $1 in a US shop (way back in the 80s) I knew that I was in a really weird country.

It amazes me that some people are like this and can't think for themselves and make their own decisions. Flat earthers make very similar statements.

It's also hard to say that the ones with the highest approval numbers turned out to be the best presidents. Look at what George W. Bush managed to do with his 71.2%!

Agreed that Biden inherited Afghanistan too. I was referring to the exit planning that was under Biden's control.
