Re: The Biden Binder

... there's just so much richness and insight to think about there ... The only thing you need to think about, Manny, is whether you can point to a shred of evidence that "the Biden administration has encouraged these poor and desperate people to flood north". Or whether it might be better to admit...

Re: The Biden Binder

[blah blah blah] Biden just doesn't care what happens at the border.

Oooh—a baseless slur!

In order to appear "open" the Biden admin. has encouraged these poor and desperate people to flood north, ...

And another!

I guess Biden Derangement Syndrome is a thing. Who knew?

Re: The Biden Binder

Interesting that in September 2020, Trump predicted that everyone in the US who wanted a vaccine, would be vaccinated by April of 2021, for which he was roundly denounced as "denying the science," and all the other nonsense dreamed up by the Left. It's not as interesting as Trump claiming without e...

Re: against the bible

Whether the Bible is an important book is a matter of fact, in which I believe you were mistaken. You've accepted that and retracted. Whether the Bible is a stupid book is a matter of opinion, and you are entitled to yours. It's not a very impressive one, but I guess you don't mind. I'm not going to...

Re: powell's kraken?

The little bit of investigation that was done into Dominion indicates fraud.
No, it doesn't.

All went in favor of the Democrats.
No, they didn't.

What a disgusting person.
Every accusation a subconscious confession ...

Re: against the bible

No, Advocate, it's the importance of which you speak ("... nothing of more importance than in a decent sociology textbook ...") that is arbitrary. I was talking about "importance" generally, or if you prefer to consider "importances" to be a plurality, then I was refering to most (perhaps all) of th...

Re: against the bible

There are many things can be said about The Bible, some of them even valid criticisms, but "lacks importance" is not one of them.

Just saying ...

I can, and have [explained a distinction that can be made between rights and privileges] (elsewhere, in-forum) I've read some of that but I haven't found any such explanation.

Re: A question for Mick and W...

We have privileges ... Some of us do. And some of us also have rights. You appear to think there is a distinction that can be made between rights and privileges that helps you make your point here. I doubt it, but perhaps you can explain in more detail. Practically, it [the power that police office...

Re: A question for Mick and W...

Citizens have no rights; Some of us do. cops -- as agents of the state -- can do just about any damn thing they like; Police officers have a lot of power, but it isn't total. the State -- any version -- is a cancer. This doesn't mean much, and it denies significant differences between states like e...

Re: A question for Mick and W...

Why should I care [that Floyd, "a wastrel", was killed by Chauvin, "an incompetent Agent of the State"]? It's disingenuous, but still an interesting question. Answer 1: You don't have to care, and it isn't clear that you even have the capacity to care in the humanitarian sense, but you clearly care...
