Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

Certain anti-abortion activists in the US make it appear that women are having abortion on a whim right up to the point of birth ("I will have a big mac, fries and an abortion of my 8 month old fetus"). But there are many potential reasons why an abortion could be necessary after three months: (1) M...

Mashed potatoes are a crime against humanity. Why ruin good potatoes like that?

Eating mashed potatoes is like eating warmed up vomit.

Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

I find it hard to believe, considering we apparently fall in pretty much the exact same spot on the political compass, that we disagree on quite as much as we do On many things we are probably less different in opinion than you think. But at least from what it appears to me, you seem to find enjoym...

Ajax Error When Giving +1

Anyone seeing Ajax errors when trying to click +1?

If I look at the console I see the request:

app.php/postlove/toggle/300250?_=1651618332935

In response I see a 403 error with message:

AJAX error. status: error, message: Forbidden

Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

From the perspective of the US you are left wing. I don't recall you ever taking the position of America's right of centre party. As for capitalism, the days where the battle lines between left and right revolved around being pro and anti capitalism ended long before I was born. Most left wing poli...

You're really channeling the inner Machiavelli today, Flash. It's an intriguing insight into elements of left wing thinking in the US.
Wait what? I am not left wing. I am for rational debate on issues and finding compromise between competing interests.

And I am decidedly pro-capitalist.

Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

I don't think it is going to be as bad as what you think. There will be activism on a major, major scale on this. There will be big pushes to get women across state lines to get abortions. Conservative states won't be able to stop it. When conservative states start trying to jail people for having a...

Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

I am pro freedom of choice...but I think in the longer term this will be a good thing. Roe vs. Wade has poisoned political debate in the USA for way too long. I am tired of the Supreme Court nonsense...which ultimately all came down to trying to stack the court one way or the other on the issue. Mos...

Yes, the sanctions chip mean that the US/NATO are effectively at the table at these negotiations. So they could block a deal not to their liking.

Webdiplomacy "Ads"?

Just for curiosity's sake I did a search for webdiplomacy in Google.

The first result shows an Ad for webdip. Is there an active campaign on to buy ads on Google for webdip?:

Re: War, what is it good for?

I will say that the US Congress and the Biden Administration know China is taking notes, see Taiwan. This is the stage to convince Xi it's not worth it. Russia of course is not China (especially economically), but still a useful stage/sandbox to show some backbone. I am not really sure the two situ...
