Yes, I really do believe* that children are born without knowing that they are "supposed to" stick with their own kind My experience is very different. In my experience, kids naturally dislike, fear, make fun of, and/or bully people whom they perceive as freaks for whatever reason. As for...

Its not just the Right. The Left-Wingers just spent 4 years believing the disproven Russian Collusion Hoax that is still believed to this day. "Disproven" how? There's actually plenty of evidence of ties between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. See, for example: - Senate Report: Former...

I will use this thread to post news and other info I come across about the Capitol rioters, their plans, their motives, etc. I would prefer that this thread focus on facts and evidence rather than on speculation or debates. The following page contains a video of interviews of rioters on the day of t...

The reason is obvious. Trump didn't win in Co...

ASS-P had a long list of illnesses. The homelessness/on a computer didn't make sense to me. I wondered if others questioned his story about being homeless and yet being able to maintain an online presence. No, never questioned it. My guess would be that he used his phone. These days almost everyone...

According to the US constitution it's where the President commits “high Crime or Misdemeanor,” and the House votes to impeach following which the Senate conducts a trial. Trump managed to wiggle out of criminal charges in the first impeachment because he used his presidential powers to interfere wi...

Famous people tend to have their privacy violated on a regular basis. Actually, according to my boyfriend who has a friend who used to work in Hollywood, many entertainment celebrities -- and their agents -- deliberately allow their privacy to be "violated," as a publicity stunt, to keep ...

And yet for some reason the Capitol rioters didn’t set off any bombs or fire any weapons, even after one of their own (unarmed) had been shot and killed by a policeman. We were lucky. As far as I can tell from the news stories I've read, their plan was to get violent only after invading the House a...

Politics is just a distraction from real life. What on Earth do you mean by that? Seems to me that politics has too many effects on real life to be "just a distraction from real life." (But it's true that spending too much time on politics can be a distraction from things we need to do fo...

More importantly, the argument of "If you don't like it, go start your own site," no longer seems to apply, as the Tech Giants control the nuts-and-bolts of web hosting. Not completely. There are still plenty of other, smaller web hosting services, and no reason not to use them except tha...

What's ignorant about it? There is a clear difference in physical attributes between races. Black people are muscular and make excellent runners and are good at sports in general. Asians are smaller Only on average. There is much more genetic variation within "races" than between them, es...

As I see it, the point of impeaching Trump NOW is simply to remove him from the Presidency ASAP, to limit the amount of damage he can do on his way out. See the following about his niece Mary Trump's assessments of him. Note her correct predictions of his behavior in November: - Mary Trump warns of ...

A big problem here has been the antipathy between Cuomo and DeBlasio, for which I'm inclined to blame both of them. Sometimes I get the feeling that Cuomo has been countermanding DeBlasio for no good reason but just to be contrary. Cuomo grew up in Queens but sometimes acts like he just doesn't unde...

I'll probably wait until late spring to make a decision on whom I'm voting for. I'll want to see all the candidates' platforms and backgrounds.
