Ridiculous protest. The Supreme court has given the choice back to the US states 

I’m sure that women all over America feel better now.

Why don’t you mansplain that to them?

“See honey, you haven’t really lost any rights. It’s just gone back to the State legislature to decide if you have body autonomy.”

I would advise wearing a cup if you do so.

One would hope that the nearly 70% of women who disagree with this decision,( including a majority of every political, ethnic and economic demographic) agree with my supposition that fundamental rights, taken away after 1/2 a century (based not on changes in society, new science or a compelling issue, but by the religious beliefs of judges) are rather more important than fluctuations in overall price levels, and will vote as such.

But given the recent trends, I’m not that hopeful.

They’re really going to love the interpretation of the Constitution on gay marriage and any form of Privacy next year.

Nothing like religious fascists (3 geriatrics a Percy drunk and a religious zealot) telling you what rights you no longer have because they don’t like them.

Thank God one of the geriatrics is in an interracial marriage or mine might be at risk!

The Russians are going to liquidate, pardon the pun, Japan’s ownership stake just like it did with Gasprom.

And no company should invest capital again as long as Putin and his gang of thugs are in power.

Idiots. They cut off their genitalia to spite their bodies.

Julian is a much of a journalist as I am an astronaut. He didn’t protect his, or anyone else’s sources. He did no analysis, provided no context. He was a vengeful data dumper.

And when the going for tough, he ran.

So, about as far from a journalist as one can get

He’s a narcissist. Maybe that’s why some of our lot are so enthralled by his bs.

So, you won’t be needing any international aid then, correct?

Earthquakes, famine, disease, blah blah blah, you got it 100%, right?

All without resorting to your old standbys of global terror basing and massive opium trafficking?

Ok, talked me into it.

Posted in: China accuses New Zealand of 'misguided' accusations See in context

there isn't a lot they can do about it because China is playing by its own rules.....

Actually, China has been a massive free-rider on the rules-based order created by "the West" in the post WWII era. From free trade, to the law of the sea, access to markets and technology - you name it, China has benefitted from it. And in return we got inexpensive low value-added goods. Yippe.....

Now that China has run that pony to death and wants to move up, it has decided that the rules-based order does not benefit it so it won't play by the rules.

UN Ruling against it's made up islands in the S. China sea? Meh

Human Rights for ethnic minorities (or Han for that matter)? I am sorry, what did you say?

Intellectual property theft and property rights? Don't you know that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery?

I agree with the above posters: It is time for a coordinated multi-national strategy (The Quad is a good place to start and I know this because it drives the CCP batty) involving mutual defense, trade, freedom of navigation support and intellectual property defense.

It's almost as if NZ is acting like an independent state standing up for its values.

China cannot have that. The Vassal State must up its tribute.

I watched this on TV w/ the sound off (I had a meeting). That was some surreal $&$#.

Emperor Xi and his supplicant vassals. The Flags EVERYWHERE. the Cops EVERYWHERE.

I notice that Xi didn't really mix with the locals by which I mean they were well cordoned off out of camera or fruit throwing range.

There was a time when I thought it would be nice to live in HK and once upon a time it might have been so, but I wouldn't live there now for all the tea in China as the man says.

Anyone there that can still get out should get out NOW. It's only going to get worse.

I go with Antique and Virex on this one.

The thought or intent may have been good, but why not run it by a few mothers in the office first (If as I suspect, this policy was the brainchild of a man.)

You know, "Hi ladies. So I am planning to X, Y, Z in order to accomplish A, B, C. I don't sound like a clueless offensive man here, do I?"

And Antique makes a great point. Celebrate it privately in your home with others. Of course I talk about my kids to others that I know have kids. And I love to hear their stories. But that is just me. I don't want to ram my kids or having kids down another woman's throat.

This is why no one is taking the Democrats seriously on any level.

Again, you are attempting to conflate Trump’s criminality and the obvious similarities to other fascists (lacking of course any semblance of competence) with election results is an obvious dodge.

And all the things that Hitler did that Trump didn’t get to?

It wasn’t for lack of trying. It was because he lacked competency and he had people around him that saved him from himself.

That’s why even your blessed Washington Examiner says he’s unfit for office and should never be within spitting distance of it ever again. Are they some liberal Dem rag?

Nope. Trump is the leader of a cult. A cult that thankfully the DOJ has yet to be corrupted by.

Is anyone seriously suggesting that criminal liability be determined on a survey?

Absolutely not. But to be fair, it’s the headline and it’s all they’ve got since objective fact is not on Trump’s side.

I am very glad that DOJ charging decision are not based on opinion polls regardless of what the #s are.

Trump can take no such comfort.

So next week when it’s say 53%, will the accuracy police say “more than half”?

Some how, I doubt it.

I return my basic point: when you’re arguing “It’s less than half!” And “the other half don’t want him indicted”, you’re not losing - you’ve lost.

You cannot name another figure in public life for whom 1/2 wanting him tried for a crime would be a starting point because there aren’t any.

The Big Lie is clearly a reference to the (Pathetic) efforts of Trump and his criminal gang to spin, out of whole cloth the lie that the election was rigged.

It’s a lie. It’s a Big lie. Thus the Big lie. That it further connects Trump to Adolf Hitler (apart from the copy of Adolf’s book his ex says is one of the few books he actually read) is just the icing on the cake.

Posted in: About half say Trump should be charged for 1/6: AP-NORC poll See in context

Let’s add a little context (since being context-free is an objectively dumb way to go).

”With respect to charging Trump with a crime, current polling says that 48% want him charged and tried. To you, is that essentially 1/2? Would you say it’s fair to say 1/2 want Trump charged with a crime according to this poll?”

The exact portion is unknown but it’s virtually certain that MORE THAN HALF would say “yes”.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Posted in: About half say Trump should be charged for 1/6: AP-NORC poll See in context

1/2 (nearly) want him prosecuted. That number is only going up. I’d be interested to see how many people think that’s a good number.

But like I said, ride that one since it’s all you’ve got.

And where, one wonders were your basic math skills at the last election?

Seems like you had a bit of trouble with 81 million being more than 74 million.

Posted in: About half say Trump should be charged for 1/6: AP-NORC poll See in context

More accurate would be “almost half”(before the most recent polling came in).

But accuracy has never been your thing.

48 less than 50 would matter if it were a basketball game. Here, not so much.

But keep screeching “It’s less than 1/2” I’m sure you are really changing minds here. (I would receive certain metrics of approval but that seems to be out of bounds)

For the purposes of public consumption, 1/2 want him charged with a crime.

And that number is headed 1 way: up.

pulse of the people and it’s definitely not with this committee.

Its the (nearly) 1/2 who think he should be charged. One can only wonder what it will be next week when the smoking gun news is polled, but it’s going to be a higher number I would guess.

Its still less than half.

You should put that on a bumper-sticker and go with it!

“Only 1/2 of voters want our guy charged!”

I’m sure that would play well.

So according to Kipling,

Snake Island is critical to any amphibious operation (I agree) but the Russians up and left of their own free will. Yeah, that’s a laugh.

They were ejected because they cannot just blow S- up. If they can’t just blow stuff up, they’ve proven themselves to be incompetent.

Ever notice how “certain posters” quote polling ad-infinitum when it suits them. But when polling is not on their side (as it’s increasingly not) suddenly it’s all fake news?

It’s only 1/2! Not even that 48%!

Wow, what a compelling argument!

As every Law School Professor teaching criminal procedure has lectured: “When the law is on your side, argue the law. When the facts are on your side, argue the facts. When neither the facts nor the law are on your side, BANG ON THE TABLE (maybe turn it over) AND SCREAM “OBJECTION!”

Welcome to the internet iteration of the 3rd option. The facts are not on Trump’s side. The Law is not on Trump’s side. So deflect, deny, conflate, rinse, repeat.

Fortunately, according to the latest polls and primary results, it seems at this point to be of little effect although the ultimate result remains to be seen.

So now we are seeing “She’s the coffee girl!” (Which is pretty rich coming from JR. as he isn’t qualified by education or experience to work in a Chucky Cheese much less even visit the White House)

”I hardly knew her! She’s Crazy!” Dude, she was literally RIGHT down the hall and sat in on almost every meeting. And “crazy”? Seriously, Mr. tableware discus thrower? He of the “He was completely unhinged. He listened to Cats to calm himself”? (Side note: CATS???? And you’re calling HER crazy?)

This reeks of desperation.

Ladies and gentlemen,

The money-shot revealing how pathetically desperate Trump supports have gotten:

In other words before the smoking gun directly connecting Trump to multiple felonies was widely known, 1/2 already thought he should be charged.

and the other half do not

So this is what they’re down to. 1/2 DONT want Trump charged. My, THAT is rousing support.

I’m pretty sure that no other political supporters of ANYONE would argue “Only 1/2 want our guy charged. ONLY HALF!”

Thats not the makings of a winning argument.

Half of Americans? So 166 million people think like this?

Yes. According to scientific polling. Weird isn’t it that 1/2 of Americans don’t think that a narcissistic sociopath should get away with multiple felonies, eh?

1/2 and that was before we learned that Trump knew the protesters were armed, 

No, that’s from the latest polls. There isn’t a single poll that sees the Dems retaining the House unopposed.

Once again you are conflating (that means intentionally drawing connections where they don’t exist) 2 separate issues.

1/2 of voters think that Trump should be charged with a crime. This has to do with crimes. Oh, and it’s in the article you might consider reading at some point if you are capable and so inclined.

No poll sees the Democrats retaining the House. Thus is a political matter completely separate. It’s true, but unrelated.

I know that this is difficult for you to process but 2 things can both be true: The Democrats are likely to lose 1 or Bolton houses of Congress in part due to bad luck and in part due to some bad policy choices AND a plurality - soon to be a majority - agree with what is so patently obvious: Trump is guilty of multiple felonies and should be charged as such.

1 in 5 Republicans think he should be charged according to the poll last week.

What will it be NEXT week?

And I couldn’t help but notice the unsolicited applause for Liz yesterday when she said “You cannot be loyal to the Constitution AND be loyal to Trump.”

She seems to have spoken the unspoken truth.

Posted in: Judge to block Florida abortion ban; Kentucky ban on hold See in context

It is definitely possible for intelligent people to come to different opinions on this most difficult question. I'm inclined to use pure science in the final decision, not using guidance from a translation of a translation of a translation of old fantasy stories.

Be my guest. I’ve had it with anti-science, anti-factual (in fact they are not immune to facts - facts are down right toxic to them. They are allergic to facts.) religious fascists imposing their beliefs on others to engender the goodwill of their chosen deity.

So I’ll stick with calling them what they are.
