Time to end the forever war,' Biden says on pulling U.S. troops from Afghanistan
I’ve heard that song before.
I’ve seen that movie too.
You know that road Neo. You know exactly where it ends.

Helen Mirren is a talent. Recommend Excalibur (1981), Mosquito Coast (1986), and The Queen (2006), amongst many others.
great choices. Didn’t know about Excalibur though. Saw that on the big screen when it came out. I would put Elizabeth I before The Queen.
id include Gosford Park as well.
I do feel for her suffering up there in the California hills.

reasoning that taller, stronger and faster athletes who have transitioned have a competitive advantage against other females.
The writer seemed to have made an error and forgot to write “male athletes”.

I watched the video after this happened and my first reaction was just disgust at this cop for kneeling on the guy that long. Still, the drug life is what killed him.
Dr. Bradford Langenfeld, who was a senior resident on duty that night at Hennepin County Medical Center and tried to resuscitate Floyd, took the stand as prosecutors sought to establish that it was Chauvin’s knee on the Black man’s neck that killed him.
Good ole’ MSM, playing with your hearts and minds. So it’s a “black man’s” neck? I like what Charles Barkley said the other day:
“I truly believe in my heart most white people and black people are awesome people, but we’re so stupid following our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats."
"I think our system is set up where our politicians, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, are designed to make us not like each other so they can keep their grasp of money and power”
****“Hey, let’s make these people not like each other. We don’t live in their neighborhoods, we all got money, let’s make the whites and blacks not like each other, let’s make rich people and poor people not like each other, let’s scramble the middle class.”

It’s strange some on here asking and questioning why no one helped. People will just stand back and do nothing for fear of being labeled a racist/white nationalist/alt right/etc., like so many on here so blithely do.

The surge in violence has been linked in part to misplaced blame for the coronavirus and former President Donald Trump’s use of racially charged terms like “Chinese virus.”
MSM just out right lying, but what’s new. As I posted recently, the FBI stats say it is not white folks doing the attacking and the Atlanta shooting was not race based but massage parlor based and for those who don’t know, most massage parlors in the US are run by Asians. Lots of South Koran women are tricked by other South Koreans to enter the US under false pretenses and the poor young ladies end up at massage parlors. There’s documentary’s to see if you’re not convinced.

Whitewash. And then we wonder why there is such a large number of doubters and cynics and conspiracy theorists around the world.
kind of illogical. You call it a whitewash, which it is, but then you use “then we wonder why”. Did this whitewash take you by surprise? If it didn’t then you’re just as much a conspiracy theorist as the next guy, and can have your Twitter account turned off for saying so. Crazy world with Banksters and Corps calling the shots is never a good thing.

IGNORANCE and FEAR of Human sexuality leaves our children open to the cultural transmission of rape as an alternate behavior to ignorance of appropriate, altruistic sexual behavior.
I have a problem with your premise. To keep this short, a quick check of this animals web history would most likely show a penchant for rape porn. This was a premeditated act of violence and rape. He certainly wasn’t suffering from any strong fears, except maybe being unable to socialize with women and as a result acting on his sequestered fantasies, which goes in a different direction of society’s problems: isolation.

Here’s another COVID study.
"The most striking fact is that 87 percent of the U.S. stories are classified as negative, whereas 51 percent of the non-US stories are classified as negative," according to the study by Dartmouth economics professor Bruce Sacerdote, Dartmouth’s Ranjan Sehgal and Brown University’s Molly Cook.
Why Is All COVID-19 News Bad News?
*Bruce Sacerdote, Ranjan Sehgal and Molly Cook**
We analyze the tone of COVID-19 related English-language news articles written since January 1, 2020. Eighty seven percent of stories by U.S. major media outlets are negative in tone versus fifty percent for non-U.S. major sources and sixty four percent for scientific journals. The negativity of the U.S. major media is notable even in areas with positive developments including school re-openings and vaccine trials. Media negativity is unresponsive to changing trends in new COVID-19 cases or the political leanings of the audience. As evidenced by most viewed and most shared major media readers in the U.S. and U.K. strongly prefer negative stories about COVID- 19, and negative stories in general. But the U.S. major media is more willing to satisfy this demand for negativity in both COVID and pre-COVID years. We suggest that this American exceptionalism stems from the lack of fair and balanced media laws and a lack of a large public option in the U.S. media. The causal impacts of this negative COVID coverage are less obvious; counties in the U.S. that rely more heavily on the major media are as likely to re-open schools .
CNN is mentioned 13 times in this. Go figure

The above a perspective of those from a majority culture (somewhere) refusing to accept the reality racism permeates US society.
Once again the global far right are denying racism is real.
Once again the global far right are making claims reasonable people wouldn't believe.
But the FBI says the majority of hate crimes against Asians are from Black folks. So your "global far right" conspiracy theory has failed.

Yep. It’s clearly a conspiracy by the liberal MSM to protect Biden.
The truth will set you free, but you’re wrong about the liberal MSM. The MSM are corporations. The MSM being only one tentacle that seek power, control and mindless followers. Biden is just an old screwdriver in a high tech tool box.

Let's look at it a different way. Trans women are born male. They make a transition to female. This decision is entirely within their right, and they should be supported in it. However, a result of this decision is that they now need to transition to a new category in sport. This can only be considered fair if they do not bring any advantage along with them. They must be competing on an even physiological level with female-born females, who are in their category through right of birth, in order for it to be fair for them to compete as females.
I am open to the idea that there may be no physiological advantage for trans-women in female sports. But, males are at a physiological advantage over women, and transwomen are born male, so in order to now compete in the category over whom they previously had a physiological advantage, they need to show that they don't have any physiological advantage.
I don't even necessarily think that this has to happen on a gender-wide scale. For example, maybe it doesn't even need to be shown that transwomen as a whole are not advantaged over female-born women, but it must be shown for each individual athlete at least. After all, they are transitioning gender categories, which humanity decided a long time ago was required for women to have sport in which to compete, so the onus on them before competing is to show that they are not advantaged by having been born and lived a period of their life as males.
Stating the obvious. Gee thanks.

Transgenders should just start their own league of sorts. Then they can move on to major professional sports and then create a transgender Olympics. Then they can ban non transgendered folks. And wheels on the bus go round and round.

Posted in: Do you think film awards like the Oscars, Golden Globes, Emmys and so on will eventually go "gender neutral" and replace Best Actor and Best Actress awards, for example, with Best Lead and Best Supporting Lead, or something like that? See in context

Probably, with the globalist corporate media shoving down people’s throats every other day, like this story.

There are 2 kinds of music lovers; Those who seek it for enjoyment, and those who see it as an art form. I'm in the latter. Does this make me a music snob? No doubt, and proud of it.
Yes, teens are most interested in pop music. Watched "Viva Las Vegas" with Elvis last night out of curiosity. Mostly singing and dancing and bad writing. Most of the teens probably ate it up, at least the teens that hadn't already moved on to the next pop stars in 1964, the Beatles.
K-pop, J-pop, US-pop, it's mostly corporate junk, the "teenagers are stupid" is correct, though a bit harsh.
