Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

I think we can overstate the importance of this decision. This doesn't ban abortion in any way shape or form. All it does is not stop states from banning abortion. I'm pretty sure that actually, No. Several states already have laws on the books which ban abortions, but only on condition that Roe be...

I think we can overstate the importance of this decision. This doesn't ban abortion in any way shape or form. All it does is not stop states from banning abortion. The thing that set the US back 50 years was Roe vs. Wade itself. It stopped the process of gradually loosening abortion restrictions tha...

Re: Schadenfreude

I really want to see all this BS go to zero as that is its real value. Any currency's, or indeed asset's, real value is determined solely by the esteem of others.

Re: Schadenfreude

Inflation worldwide is terrible of course. I saw a story from Australia yesterday where people were cutting the stalks off the broccoli to save money (the broccoli was $11.99AUD/kg). And the next few months will be rough with petrol prices continuing to rise as well as the full effects of the loss o...

Re: Schadenfreude

Stocks were vastly overvalued due to all the liquidity pumped into the system...so I am not too worried about their fall (so far). At least in its current form, I argue that crypto is a big scam or as Bill Gates said it is "100% based on greater fool theory"...I really want to see all this BS go to ...

Schadenfreude

I am really feeling the schadenfraude as I watch crypto prices sink. It is like the force and I can feel it flowing through me. I am loving it.

Does that make me a bad person?

Re: Fluminator made a weird post about gay people

reliable gays deep in the culture Are these gays independently certified by a reputable assessment bureau? I think these reputable assessment bureaus must be only in the UK? If they are in the US, they don't have very high standards. Allegedly 30% of millenials identify as LGBTQ and almost 40% of G...

What about jogging? If that is not gay, what about if I walk fast and break into a jog occasionally?

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:

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...
