Re: Interesting phase in the pandemic

There is pretty good evidence this is not harmful. Are we talking about something else now? Like keeping kids home from s...

Is this some new definition of imperialism that I'm not aware of?
You seem pretty clear in advocating for US imperial action in Iran.

I don't know what you want to call it...but that is what it is.

Re: Interesting phase in the pandemic

What level? 41,000 deaths in the UK would have been 0 excess deaths. (that is the lower 137k figure less the 97k excess). That would be perfectly acceptable. Though working out when you are at that level is rather difficult as it is based on a statistical measurement of all death, not of the current...

Re: Interesting phase in the pandemic

So when you are done, you can tell me howuch freedom to not wear a mask means to the 97,000 corpses who never have to worry about freedoms again. Ora, you're supposedly an intelligent person. That is an utterly ludicrous comment and you know it. The vast majority of those people died during the per...

Re: Conservative men most open minded and tolerant

Looking at the most recent Irish election, it looks like the difference is small enough that if only men or only women had voted we would have the same government (according to the limited exit poll data). women would vote centre right: FF (-0.8), FG (-0.3), Populist left: SF (-0.8) Green: (+0.5) Ce...

Re: Conservative men most open minded and tolerant

Swedish women are largely left wing? That's surprising. I know that in the UK and Germany that women tend to vote for the right over the left, and assumed that was a general thing across Europe. I can only speak to the US breakdown, because i have seen them more regularly. I know Trump would not ha...

Person I might go on a date with =/= person I am sure I want as my life partner. That is not what I said and you are mis-characterising it on purpose. ;) That does seem to be what you implied.

Nice fantasy, but i do 't know about that either of your examples are issues which cultural appropriation criticises.

Re: Woke

@Jamie, i believe the origin lies in black communities in the US waking up to the fact of systemic racism and prejudice that continues to this day.

Being woke was later, eh, culturally appropriated by the left/progressives. Afaik.

Woke

Just a little diversion/poll.

What does the term, 'Woke' mean to you?

Would you consider yourself woke?
Or would you he annoyed at being described as woke?

Just seeing some, eh, discussion. And wondered what webdip politics followers think.
