  1. I have no words. Edit to add: Scratch it. Snopes says the report is false. Looks like rw media likes stirring the pot.
  2. Hey Jeffie, I really laugh when deadshits like you and Boothy call us Pusstralians. Because you guys are biggest bunch of scared little puritans on the planet. Scared of the human body, you have to pixilate nipples during mammogram items on the news. Scared of each other so you have to own a gun. Scared of your own government so you have a constitutional amendment so you can arm yourself against it. I get it, you nation was built on fucking each other over. Just like us, you have fucked over your indigenous community, Then you brought in slaves to fuck over and do all the hard work. Your national psyche is based on a fear of God and each other. The concept of having free healthcare, minimum wages and affordable education is so foreign to you that you label any sort of social cohesion as evil. Honestly the rest of the Western world shakes it's heads in the same way that a lot of you are shaking your head at Drumpf. We know we haven't got it right but we are so far ahead of you clowns because we don't fear each other. Now your latest fear, since Muslims aren't scary enough anymore is transgender people. First point Jeffie, you can't even be polite and recognise the different between transsexual and transvestite, one is a gender identity and the other a sexual identity. If you can grow up and recognise that it is longer polite or appropriate to call African Americans Brown or negroes? Then you should treat people of trans gender with similar respect. This whole issue of birth gender designated toilets is just laughable. I don't know what you do in toilets Jeffie, but I don't go there to rest. I go to the toilet to micturate and to defecate which is a natural bi-product of digestion. And now you worried that you daughter might see a cock in the showers or some guy might see you daughter naked, most of Europe just laughs at your arcane, sad embarrassed thought process. Your language and arguements are so fearful and antiquated I just pity your poor children. Your comment is brilliant and pretty much spot on. America's attachment to fundamentalism is like sticking a rake in the spokes of a well tuned bicycle at high speed, It ruins more things than it fixes.
  3. When it comes to law you are as baffled as Adam on Mother's Day. Why don't you spend a few minutes educating yourself, or better yet, find someone to read it to you.
  4. Discrimination is discrimination, there are no barriers to it unless the law protects those special classes. It doesn't surprise me that you don't get it, you seem to struggle with equality and the concept of protected classes.
  5. Nice post PB, though I'm sure Obama consulted with the Department of Justice and secured an opinion before he even went there. The strategy is clear and this is just the next phase of the LGBT war where everyone affected is protected from discrimination. I think what we are seeing is a pushback from the religious right since the loss of same-sex marriage and Obama is making it clear that we aren't going to go there.
  6. Is it that high a percentage?Why discuss deficit spending, foreign policy and world affairs, platforms and positions when you can distract with transgender identification issues? I would have thought a majority know how this all works. Strike that, it seems so few do. Sad, isn't it? People who fancy themselves as being intelligent, even intellectually better than the average and all they can muster is disdain for those who don't see transgender rights as paramount. Probably the same argument when blacks made up just 14% of the population in 1860.

    What Does Gun Violence Really Cost?

    IMHO, and I'm not being sarcastic here - its the First Amendment that is causing contributory to them to commit suicide. Jesus Christ you're a naive asshole. It is big pharma causing suicides in this country, they don't know how to deal with depression other than to prescribe drugs with side effects to handle it. The most simplistic solution is the worst and the fact that no one has figured that out is dismally disgusting. Don't you find it odd that people haven't figured this much out? Well Google Viagra deaths, and you will see that in 1999 over 500 people died from using it and after that point numbers are very difficult to flesh out. Why? big money, If you have a better answer show it. Big Pharma is "causing suicides"?? Had you bothered to actually read the article, you would have seen they said that one of the primary factors in the suicide spike was that docs were backing off on writing Rx's for anti-depressants. Not more. Asshole indeed. Yes, asshole indeed. The only reason doctors back "off" is fear of torts. The patient is left to wallow in their own delusions from drugs already prescribed and where there is no refill. The docs are covered, the government is covered, the patient is dead.

    Ssssssnnnnakkkkkeee

    Many years ago when I was in the Army in Vietnam I was part of an advance team sent to set up a forward operating station in Cambodia just past the border. We were inserted by chopper to a small island in the middle of the Mekong river and the mission was to track NVA who were using various roads and waterways to get rice to their northern units. There were only six of us on this mission but we were to be joined by half a battalion in three hours. Once we had set up we had time to kill and four of us decided to go swimming. The water was refreshing as the temp was easily over a hundred degrees that day but after just 10 minutes, we heard screams to get out of the water. Thinking they had spotted enemy we all just about walked on water to get to our weapons only to turn around once we got ashore to see a huge school of black snakes slithering by. There were literally hundreds of them and I don't know if they were poisonous, I remember thinking at the time what I would have done if no one had alerted us and I remember not having an answer for that. Needless to say I never went in the water after that. A few minutes later we got a radio message that the operation had been cancelled and we had to wait until it just got dark before we were picked up. If I had to spend the night there I probably couldn't have slept if I tried.

    Apple's Fight With the Feds

    Longer version of the news report http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-apple-fbi-encryption-debate-20160328-story.html Probably got some 13 year old kid from China or Russia to crack it. It was the Israeli firm Cellibrite using a technology called UFED http://www.cellebrite.com/Media/Default/Files/Forensics/Data-Sheets/UFED-Touch-DataSheet.pdf This is a tough phase for Apple since it puts into question their customers ability to be safe from government intrusion. Apple is however working on a new hack that will supposedly be impossible to crack, The mathematics are on Apple's side, but phone technology might be limiting their ability to devise a successful block.

    Corporate Pre$$ $peech

    I think when they act like citizens yes they should enjoy our freedoms. But when they leave the country, I think they should lose those freedoms.

    SCOTUS pick today

    It depends of course on how well Trump is doing, but Obama has the option of withdrawing the nomination in early to middle October and telling Senate Republicans he will now consult with Hillary and Sanders on a new pick. That may cause panic in Republican ranks guaranteeing a Garland confirmation. Obama can have great fun with this before it's over.

    SCOTUS pick today

    It is disturbing and the fact that Totenburg is completely trustworthy is driving me mad.

    SCOTUS pick today

    I have always admired Nina Totenburg, she just detailed an Obama agreement with Senate Republicans over his Supreme Court pick. But after reading this, I'm disturbed that politics in Washington is so creepy that an agreement can be made eight months ahead of an election, while we the public participate in a phony back and forth to determine the election when elements have already been decided. This is a good example why Washington needs to be cleaned up, we have zero influence on political outcomes. It is pure Kabuki and the legitimate voter has lost their say.
