Posted in: GOP purges Cheney for 'unity,' but Trump bent on retribution See in context

Amazing how Trump has made conservatives make screeching U-turns. You and your still unnamed non-partisan historians regard neocon Bush 2 as a successful president, and you defended the Iraq invasion long after it had descended into complete failure. 

People can change. I mean,

So you now think neocon Bush 2 wasn’t a successful president? Do you know if your still unnamed non-partisan historians have changed their tune too?

a successful Carter?

An unsuccessful president. He was kicked out after one term.

That is a pretty good metric for judging whether a president has been successful.

Follow up this apology with action and get out of Ireland.

Follow up this apology with action like granting a referendum to NI to get a mandate for getting out of Ireland.

This can only be a good thing. But, like any disease, it will take some time to completely vanish.

The old Neocon GOP needs to be burned to the ground and Liz needs to tell her fellow Neocons that.

Amazing how Trump has made conservatives make screeching U-turns. You and your still unnamed non-partisan historians regard neocon Bush 2 as a successful president, and you defended the Iraq invasion long after it had descended into complete failure.

Why burn it down when this produced a successful president like Bush 2?

It is the land of the Palestinian people. 

You can’t have something that was never yours to begin with.

In any discussion or debate on any topic, you’d be hard pressed to come up with a more morally bankrupt line of reasoning than this.

There are moral people on the right who wince at this. There are Israelis who wince at this.

Everyone should wince at this.

Pity my hometown is part of England. Wish we could tow it up the Irish Sea to Scotland.

We could just declare a Republic or Free State and ban all Torrie toffs from entering.

A bit harsh. I have more sympathy for the toffs like Johnson, Cameron, Rees-Mogg and the rest of the privileged trash - you can’t expect them to act or know better. Inbreeding and being shut off from society at large will do that. Amoral nonsense.

It’s people from good, northern working class stock who’ve let us down.

If this is confirmed, the deaths of elderly people ( y’know, people’s mums and dads ) from Covid in an Osaka nursing home should be fresh enough in the memory.

Jimizo - If you think Tories are condescending wait until you hear about the other lot. There's a reason no one votes Labour anymore.

They do where I’m from. Admitting to voting Tory there is equivalent to admitting you got arrested for exposing yourself in a playground.

Pity my hometown is part of England. Wish we could tow it up the Irish Sea to Scotland.

Screw England and particularly the south of it.

Well Boris, remember you promised to help the poor, especially up north

Some northern seats went Tory to get Brexit through. Couldn’t help but notice the condescension when he talked about them voting Tory.

He’ll consolidate his southern/rural base.

We'll see. Their marketing is very successful. But as a scientist, I am not yet convinced 

Your ‘scientific’ background, actual knowledge, leads you to the garden variety conspiracy theory take on vaccines. Okay.

What background leads you to embrace many other conspiracy theories on a variety of topics?

For what it's worth, I used to quite like and respect Boris.

I’ve heard of finding him amusing, a better choice than Corbyn, and even liking him, but ‘respecting’ Boris Johnson is a new one on me.

What exactly did you respect?

Posted in: U.S. restores transgender health protections denied by Trump See in context

Tony Perkins, president of the religious conservative Family Research Council, called sex “an objective biological reality”

Says a guy who believes that dinosaurs and Homo sapiens walked the earth together, that a talking snake tempted a woman who was formed from the rib bone of her male partner, that a teenage virgin gave birth after being inseminated by a deity.

It is ridiculous to hear these Neanderthals trust in science when it suits them.

Have any of these nutters proclaimed Covid as divine punishment for tolerating homosexuality yet?

Any French speakers here who can clarify if ‘concessions’ is the right choice of word?

There should be no concessions to Islamists.

"concessions' to Islamism"?? 

For example what?

I was thinking the same thing. This article doesn’t mention what these alleged concessions are.

The far right and Islamists - are there any remote, unpopulated French islands in the Pacific where they can put these groups?

The Stasi, Orwell, Maosism, overlords, politicians and their owners.

Garden variety rightwing/conspiracy theory stuff.

Anyway, looks like a good summer in the UK under the Tories. The poor might be able to go to a foodbank without a mask.

Are you really interested in sitting down and spending a few hours listening to long-form interviews to form an opinion, or do you just want a few names to google and find some dismissive comments to smear them? Honest question.

I generally read before forming opinions but listening is okay too. I’ve got a pretty good attention span.

I’m open to it.

You must admit your reluctance to post where you get your news from and your take on vaccines does and should arouse suspicion. Just post them.

Got my invitation for the Pfizer thing, and spent the weekend listening to different expert opinions on it. Everybody should make their own decision, but I will give it a pass.

I’d have bet my health, house, savings and the shirt on my back on you deciding that.

Surely Fox News have covered this? Maybe you were busy the day their in-depth report was aired...

I’ve had a few exchanges with the tin foil hat brigade over subjects like this.

I remember one poster claimed the MSM were not covering the war in Yemen. After countless links to MSM sources were given covering Yemen, the poster sloped off down an alley complaining they weren’t covering it properly.

Another one was on the subject of Muslim women wearing religious garb. Another ‘alternative media’ poster complained the media weren’t covering the problems of Muslim integration. After many examples of the MSM covering this, the poster complained the sources were from the British media which nobody reads ( the same poster often links to rightwing UK media ).

It’s a strong bubble.
