Re: Miscellaneous news items that don't warrant their own thread

From the land of the high speed pursuit comes another doozy. Good news is the dogs are going to recover, even the one at the end who went through the front of the RV, into a tree, and came out with the heavy limp and bleeding profusely. The one who jumped out earlier is supposedly 100%. **** cunt n...

Re: RE: Re: Miscellaneous news items that don't warrant their own thread

I feel like that's a stretch of an argument. I think it's perfectly fine to call out Israel/Hamas without demonizing the regular people that live within those communities. I don't think it's antisemitic or anti-Palestinian by association if you call out Israel/Hamas. I dont give a **** either way, ...

Re: RE: Re: Miscellaneous news items that don't warrant their own thread

I know you in particular are not saying it, but I'll go ahead and clarify: Calling the Israeli government out is not anti-antisemitism (btw, many arabs are Semites but that's semantics). Plenty of American Jews I know dislike and criticize the Israeli government, and they make a fairly large commun...

Re: RE: Re: Miscellaneous news items that don't warrant their own thread

I've never even seen, much less met an actual Nazi (except for perhaps my wife's grandpa who was a Volga River Russian and looked just like Hitler). Same goes for Antifa. They're seemingly no where to be found. You've probably met quite a few antisemites you just might not have realized it. Anti-Se...

Re: The Official "Making America Great Again" Thread

Instead of natural growth with consumer protections, solid social safety nets, paying down debts during good times, and reducing the deficit, conservatives have pumped the economy by massively borrowing against the future and funneling the productivity of this nation to the top.

Hopefully the girl gets the medical and emotional support she needs, as well as the choice to go to another state if required (although it says she'll be able to get the abortion in Ohio until mid-July when the law takes effect, but in-case she decides after July.).

OK, so the WaPo and Justice Dept. officials now aren't credible?

The WaPo is credible. All it did was tell us that a justice dept. spokesman said something.

It's called a fact.

Well if that's the case, we're not following what the founding fathers wanted.
