Re: After 20 years of fighting the Taliban

Yeah, Biden's really taken the opportunity to make America look weak and run with it. American democracy is at a painfully low ebb. From the ineffective to the insane to the incapable. Biden honored the negotiated Trump truce with the Taliban. Trump agreed to withdraw most of the troops by May 1. B...

Re: webDiplomacy.net new server

I can confirm from a few hours ago, that a different player has to open a game after all players have readied their moves for it to advance. In the Retreat phase there was only one player with a move and after it was readied, I as a different player open the game. It showed all players readied and w...

This who entered by plane and overstayed a visa becoming 'illegal' were not affected.
That's because US immigration policy give preferred status to illegals that arrive, "by land," meaning by boat and plane over those who use other means. It is seen mostly in Florida.

I know from a few weeks ago that it definitely didn't process unless another player looks at the board after everyone else has readied their orders. I was sole retreat order and no matter how many times I looked and not ready/ready order it wouldn't update until the full time had passed. It still se...

Re: Brexit Food Shortages Beginning in Britain Now

The US inflation rate has been suppressed by Covid-19 reducing fuel usage. The calculations are continually changed to keep the number artificially low by changing the items being measured. Companies kept prices low by choice as costs rose for the last year and now are raising them because they can....

Re: Southern Boarder

Trump's Wall was a bad joke on the American taxpayer. It costed on average $4.6 million per mile and was climbable with a $5 ladder. Contract costs were increasing with no oversight to rein in costs. It took money from defense contracts that were for improving US security and helping military famili...

Re: Freedom of speech

Re: Black Lives Matter protesters "Overwhelmingly Peaceful" and "remarkably nonviolent", study finds

But what is the percentage of those arrested that had charges dropped and not brought to trial? Police will illegally arrest and charge people only ti drop all charges and release hours later.

Seriously? Do Palestinian's have the same rights to lost homes from 70 years ago? Well if you say Palestinian squatters given homes by Jordanian conquerors from their Jewish owners is legal.

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

The disproportionate use of force never ceases to amaze me. If Israel hadn't spent decades on rocket and missile defense after Iraq's Scud missiles, the results would have been different. Over 1300 rockets launched by Hamas and a quarter landed in Gaza to hurt their own people. What do recommend, a...

Re: Call of Duty is why there are mass shootings

Gun regulation will reduce the number of deaths per incident. If you look at counties with the tightest regulation like Japan, when they have mass killings the death toll is lower because the perpetrator has to use a sword or other weapon that takes longer to kill. The ease od getting a gun with a h...

Re: Facebook and Google fight Australian proposal to make them pay media organisations for content

It's more of taking copyrighted content and using it without payment by claiming fair usage of more material than has been previously allowed. A country is now defining how much can be used legally.
