 Forum: News and Current Events   Topic: Russia’s sinister social media campaign against the U.S.

All of Europe is making zillions of daily social media posts having to do with US elections and politics... and then there's Russia. Russia BAD. On those posts are they portraying themselves as your neighbor? No, you know who you're dealing with. That's the difference. Had Russia made posts over he...

@ezra No because every president's original plan is total BS. Obama purported to be closing Guantanamo. There were & possibly still are quite a few innocent people there. I think like with ACA, Obama did have a certain plan in mind that did not work out as he intended, rather then come to a con...

Not too many people worship, say, Michelangelo's David like it's a god... How many is "too many"? Consider also Michelangelo's interpretation of the Pietà -- people do pray to it, give gifts to it, and in these ways, they worship it as well. I've been to the Vatican. I've seen it happen. ...

All I got out of this thread was what I get out of all the gender threads: men whine and complain, women whine and complain, we all hate each other, and we should all leave. These threads could all be consolidated into one called: Complain About the Opposite Sex. Unfortunately, there'd only be a few...

As I recall trump had some sort of business plan to extract wall money from Mexico in a round about way over a period of time. Rather than it being Mexico writing a check in full that said 'for the wall' before construction began. Plan? No, he was just feeding you BS to placate you so no one would ...

What is the estimated annual cost to U.S. taxpayers for all required services combined (ie medical, law enforcement, government assistance, education, etc) that relate to illegal immigration? Too complex to calculate really. There have been literally 100's of reports on the issue and there's no con...

I was a lifeguard in high school, the experience was enough to dissuade me from ever using a public pool. Peeing is nothing, wait until you see floaters and diapers popping up from the deep end at the end of the day. That's where it gets disturbing. The chlorine will wipe away virtually all the bact...

Aristotle once said: "Women for children, boys for pleasure." I've never heard that one, but it fits with his overarching philosophy on the issue: Greece, especially in that era, isn't the most hospitable of areas, and Aristotle believed the pederast philosophy was invented as a form of p...

Same here. One of the nice things about WP is that I have learned some of the more subtle social graces, albeit s-l-o-w-l-y. People in the off-line world have noticed this, and even some of the people at church are starting to smile back at me!. I noticed your changes right before you took a hiatus...

despair begets despair, and to some people, little helps a bad mood more than spreading it around. severely depressed people literally do not have the same thought processes as others - often thinking in self-defeating ways and enabling their own situation - and i think sometimes here that is overl...

I also joined in 2013 and WP was at the time a more positive place about autism and the members in general less negative about themselves. That radically changed in 2014. Since then it has gone back and forth but never gotten back to as positive as 2013. I am more and more beginning to believe that...

Yep. Back to the Greeks. I wish we knew more about how the common people (i.e., who were not Athenian/Spartan/whatever citizen of their city-state) felt about pederasty and such things. What we know, wouldn't you agree, is mostly the mores of the "upper classes," who were citizens of thos...

... The concurrent story here on wrong planet isn't much better. Most of the folk who have stuck around here are going though a rough patch in life and need support, but with very few positive members left, there are few people to cheer them up. Reading posts here puts a feeling of despair into me,...
