    This is precisely the result of Trumpian policy.

    I'd say the genesis is much older.  

    Something to ponder in this respect. 

    If you grasp that this sort of agricultural slavery is not a one-off event, but is rather baked into US (certainly Georgian)  law, institutions, and culture . . 

    then you just might be a Critical Race Theorist 

    maybe without even knowing it !!!

    Lots of people here post anonymously and the site supports that, as do my sockpuppet Publius and I.

    Yeah dude, taking a dose of good old libertarian "personal responsibility" for what you write . . . 

    is just sooooooo hard

    Orders of magnitude? Complete bullshit. 

    A recent study found that vaccinated people infected with the delta variant are 63 per cent less likely to infect people who are unvaccinated.

    Then what is your problem ??  Get the pokes, and have your family get them too !!  

    And those who are vaxxed but get Delta, have much milder symptoms.  

    What in Jeebus' name are y'all waiting for ??

    You can have fearful kids or dead kids.  Take you pick.

    Total bull pucky . .  we demand healthy, big-hearted, smart and brave kids (ask me about my grandkids!!) 

    Many countries have accomplished just that. 

    And you tell us that is impossible in the richest country in the history of the world. 

    You are sick

    I have been suggesting this for more than a decade and brought it up here on PA numerous times.   These assholes / chickenshits would scurry away and start making pamphlets for the Nazi clubs again.

    I heartily second that emotion as well. (no more anonymity on PA)

    If PA really cares about addressing the lying toxicity of social media, they need to set an example.

    They [women] knew they had to work for it, and rapidly adapted to the idea that the hard work required was not physical labor, but in learning.

    An amazing number of US women are completely ignorant of the opportunities they have 

    due to the decades of effort by the women's movement. 

    And that ignorance is not accidental , ,  but nurtured.

    clients who believe the way forward is to bullshit the public.

    Right, and why are FAUX, Newsmax and OAN not considered to be "Big Tech"? 

    If you wanna regulate FB & Twitter, why can't we regulate the lying liars of Riech-Wing media ??

    No, it was about convincing the North Vietnamese to negotiate a peace deal. 

    You are apparently and blissfully unaware of the many times the US has threatened to use nukes - not all were public at the time.  

    They don't merely pretend to be madmen, they are madmen. 

    The article will come up if you google this . .  . 

    U.S. Nuclear Threats: Then and Now - SAGE Journals

    " The madman theory, or as Nixon and his chief of staff Bob Haldeman described it, “the principle of the threat of excessive force,” was at the center of this strategy. “Nixon was convinced that his power would be enhanced if his opponents thought he might use excessive force, even nuclear force. That, coupled with his reputation for ruthlessness, he believed, would suggest that he was dangerously unpredictable,” according to analysts William Burr and Jeffrey Kimball. As part of the strategy, underlings transmitted information to foreign officials saying that Nixon might be unstable or unpredictable . . . "

    Now that is exactly the sign of someone who thinks this a fair and balanced committee.  

    Strange that when the topics of the Drumph's tens of thousands of lies, blatant corruption, politicization of the DOJ etc are up for discussion . . 

    You are always MIA

    2 republicans, both with a history of opposing the previous president make it partisan.  

    Any of them who did NOT oppose the Drumph are corrupt, insane, cowardly or all three.

    I quite agree, this was my gentle jab at Prof Oliver's premise guns are a Freudian thing.   Its mostly  about fear,

    Well kidding aside, fear is a big factor in gunz lust, but the will to power is as well - which of course has a sexual component. 

    Went to a memorial service at a CLE area yacht club a few weeks ago. They had prominent signs on the doors prohibiting guns from being brought in. 

    They'll likely get sued.

    It's only a matter of time before the Riechista Ohio legislature mandates gunz in yacht clubs and schools.
