  1. Dunno if that's me but it should be. This should be a woman's choice about her own body. Period.
  2. There's a millennial joke in there somewhere but I am above that.
  3. Tom will be along shortly to disagree with you in the strongest of terms and moreover to also cite a Reason article proving you wrong clearly if not exactly concisely.
  4. Not 250 miles but the Germans have given the Ukes some of their Panzerhaubitze 2000 howitzers. With a rocket assisted projectile it has a freakish range of 42 miles and laser guidance. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzerhaubitze_2000 As for winning + losing, just as with causes and sufficient grounds, different countries will define things differently. Vlad could give a shit about Ivan dying. What Vlad doesn't want to do is lose (sound familiar?). So 'losing' or some form of expensive draw is preferable to lost. And given that he gives no fucks about his country (sound familiar?) it
  5. ... because Russia still occupies large amounts of eastern Ukraine. It is a dumb war which is something that we know about: Vietnam, Persian Gulf + Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia. But while the Russians will pay a steep price, they aren't losing until they decide they're losing, until the body bags or their equivalent mount up. Until then it's a draw.
  6. Unsurprisingly, Tom is loose with his logic. No, Disney doesn't get a carve out for Mickey. Yeah, they lobbied for an extension for copyright duration, the Sonny Bono Act. Yeah, they did that. But it wasn't a carve out for Mickey. It wasn't crony capitalism. Moreover, Tom's boy Josh's important proposal to roll this back for Disney won't pass Constitutional muster. The Supremes have said that Congress can extend copyright duration, Eldred v. Ashcroft. But the reverse ain't a gonna happen cuz that's taking property. But then it doesn't really matter either because Mickey (Steambo
  7. Viability is what matters to you in your moral system. Big whoop.
  8. Well, only if we accept your stipulation that a fetus is a human. However, the reverse of that argument, that it is immoral to vacuum out a fetus because it is a human does mean in your value system that it is immoral to execute a person because it is also a human.
  9. Clarifying that was the purpose of Planned Parenthood v. Casey which was written by Republicans Sandra Day O'Connor, Anthony Kennedy, David Souter, Harry Blackmun and John Paul Stevens.
  10. The Schmidt article: https://steveschmidt.substack.com/p/no-books-no-money-just-the-truth
  11. It's been done in London. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/uk-government-oleg-deripaska-london-british-police-b2035274.html
  12. Quite a few bravely didn't vote in 2016. We can never repay their sacrifice.
  13. It’s a war. We regret the confusion.
  14. Jeff, the article says according to senior American officials. That means we (the US of Fucking A) want them (the Big Red Machine) to know that we’re offing their senior boys. I don’t understand why we want this but it is a press release and not a leak. Besides, it’s pretty obvious anyways. Even a moronical idiot such as myself figured out that we targeted the Moskva. I’m sure they could figure it out too.
  15. https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Man-who-stormed-Capitol-in-caveman-costume-gets-17154504.php Tom will be along shortly to say that he's just good ol' caveman, never meanin' no harm.
  16. Yeah, I'll file it under virtue signal combined with massive proviso negating any signaled virtue. It's in the large filing cabinet next to she's an ornery old bitch, bless her heart and just down the hall from I'm gonna pray on that. Attacking Roe v Wade on rhetorical grounds is a ... It's basically saying, I'm good with putting women in prison for wanting to control their own bodies until liberals get the spelling right. PS, guns.
  17. Jeff will be along shortly to just say that he's pro-choice except that he doesn't think Roe v Wade was decided correctly and that it should not be judge made law but instead disgusting liberals such as myself should pass a Constitutional Amendment specifically enumerating that right which Democrats could have easily done if they hadn't have nominated Hillary. PS, guns. He's very concise.
  18. How does she square her opposition to a statutory right with her pearl clutching about Gorsuch and Kavanaugh being completely inconsistent with their interviews?
  19. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/05/05/sen-collins-voices-opposition-legislation-that-would-create-statutory-right-abortion/ To no-one's surprise.
  20. Anyone seen Jizz lately? I hope he's OK.
