Re: Not enough Whisky for this Tango Foxtrot

If the headline were accurate, I would agree that it was shocking. But it's inaccurate on two counts. Here is the headline, emphasis added: 'Ohio lawmaker wants to teach the Holocaust ‘from the perspective of the Nazis '    First, the bill isn't specifically advocating that the holocaust be taught f...

Re: Not enough Whisky for this Tango Foxtrot

Rodia, I want to acknowledge your posts, but there is no point in arguing the issue. I don't subscribe to the woke worldview (or whatever word you would choose to characterize your viewpoint). I think it would be better if you talked about the world views YOU subscribe to instead of trying to dismi...

Re: Not enough Whisky for this Tango Foxtrot

Hot take: if your definition of "the woke worldview" includes "trans people, and nonbinary and intersex people are not deviants or mentally ill people, just normal ones," disagreeing with it isn't really something to be proud of. I'll decide the things I'm proud of, and you deci...

Why is that disturbing? People in government are allowed to exercise their faith.

Re: Not enough Whisky for this Tango Foxtrot

On my computer screen, elengil's post consists of two sentences at the top, a 4-inch gap, and two sentences at the bottom. If you refer to the text of that post, you will see that it is very vague, and gives no specifics about what she is referring to, so I still don't know what the 'mandated sexual...

Re: Not enough Whisky for this Tango Foxtrot

anti-trans legislation does not only hurt trans-chidren Or, it could save them from making premature, life-altering decisions they would come to regret. Do you support the mandated sexual abuse of every girl athlete in the name of potentially stopping one trans child from playing? Because that's wh...

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. The trouble isn't, imo, with the definition of 'well-regulated militia.' The trouble is with people's varying interpretation of the amendment's phraseolo...

Re: Roe v Wade has been overturned. How do you feel about that?

Thank you. I wasn't prepared to wade into the thread.

This woman said she heard from her rheumatologist that 'they're stopping all refills of methotrexate . . .'

I wonder if the 'they' is just her particular rheumatologist, or some larger entity.

i received an email from my rheumatologist today that they are stopping all refills of methotrexate because it is considered an abortifacient.

It is by no means universally accepted among medical professionals that a fast-track to hormones and puberty-blockers is the best way to serve trans-identified minors. The article below is a Canadian article referencing Sweden's decision to no longer allow this kind of 'gender-affirming care' for pe...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

Does it make sense to you that the Trump movement deliberately tried to destroy itself, and that Trump led the effort? Trump wanted his mob to stop the certification of Joe Biden's election so that he could remain in power. That's so absurd, there's nothing I can say. But I'm not meaning to argue t...

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

Applying logic - why would anyone who was not a Trump supporter want to disrupt a Senate proceeding that was about to certify his loss? The internet chatter plotting violence was hateful towards lawmakers. I don't know what motivates violent, anti-government extremists. I don't know what these inte...
