Re: Omar accused of treasonous plot with Qatar

What I've always felt about Omar is not that she's being controlled by someone else but that she is either blind to her hypocrisy or chooses to be. She picks and chooses what she likes about each culture. We all do, but most of us are not in office. Or maybe she's just not all that bright? Occam's ...

Re: Omar accused of treasonous plot with Qatar

No "contest" is needed, and none is implied. The fact is that there is no practice even remotely analogous to FGM in western culture. No doubt there are men who will whine about being "mutilated" in infancy as the result of routine circumcision, and perhaps they have a legitimate gripe. But that's i...

Re: Omar accused of treasonous plot with Qatar

Do you have an example of Omar being an apologist for FGM? You have misquoted me. That's been the elephant in the livingroom since the beginning. . . How is it that an apologist for a culture that claims the right to dismember a woman's genitalia against her will ends up in this position to begin w...

Re: Omar accused of treasonous plot with Qatar

How is it that an apologist for a culture that claims the right to dismember a woman's genitalia against her will ends up in this position to begin with? Mutilating penii is part of the American culture, but lots of males are politicians. I'm not sure what argument this point advances, but surely y...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

And it troubles you that wisdom is not found in a forum dominated by opinions that can be expressed in 15 words or less?

Re: Is this for real? (Social Credit Score, Big Tech, & the Right to Own a Gun)

In early August, in the wake of the shooting at an El Paso Walmart, President Trump called on big tech companies to collaborate with the Justice Department in the creation of software that “stops mass murders before they start” by detecting potential mass shooters before they can act. Though Trump’...

Is this for real? (Social Credit Score, Big Tech, & the Right to Own a Gun)

According to this article, the Trump administration is considering using a Chinese-style "social credit score" to determine whether a person should have the right to own a gun. And who better to gather data for the social credit score than Amazon, Google, and the other tech giants who would utilize ...

Re: Kids: Then and Now

No the government did not, the universities did. I really get tired of this argument, just because the government sweetens the pot for something and ties strings to it, that does not equate to the government mandating it. There is a huge difference. Kind of like conditioning more generous Medicare ...

Re: Epstein

I'm just surmising here, but I suspect these girls' choices might have been different had everything been laid out for them from the beginning. Had that been the case, there wouldn't have been any need for the kind of sophisticated grooming that Epstein and his team had a knack for. It's easy for me...

Re: Are google sheets prices completely worthless?

Reality is. . . what is boldly asserted and plausibly maintained. Did you opt out of Common Core or something?
