    good song

    there's always a danger with dealing with any divisive issue by trying to make it more divisive, promoting an "us versus them" mentality

    a 2013 survey revealed that more americans think blacks are more racist than whites or hispanics because of divisionist rhetoric - indeed, of just the black people surveyed in the same study, 31 percent felt that black americans were racist compared to 24 percent who felt white americans were

    but relying on rational and charitable insiders to help out and do the proper thing can otherwise be a frustrating and long winded exercise

    as for setting it up as a whole "women versus men" thing, please remember that it's not all men who are idiots - most of us are nice guys

    GRAND OLD FOSSIL FUELS
    Kavanaugh and Supreme Court to Planet: Drop Dead

    Within a day of a frightening UN warning about global warming, the Court lets stand an anti-EPA decision written by then-Judge Kavanaugh.

    In the same week that the world’s scientists declared global climate disruption has reached a “point of no return”, the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, and the Trump administration all agreed to do nothing about it.

    Probably has a lot to do with the same reasons here. They don't really believe in it anyways [ idiots ] and mainly, can't screw with things like that there is an election coming up. Early next year here.
    Nice gals are nice ... Bad gals are much much better

    This is what should be on the front page of all news sites

    https://www.bbc.com/news/amp/world-europe-45971537

    The INF is incredibly important and has stood as a major contributor to world peace since Reagan. It is imperiled and if not saved we'll live in a much more dangerous world.
    But what do we see in the headlines? Meghan Markel's latest wardrobe malfunction. Megyn Kelly loses her job. Justin Bieber cut his hair.

    Save the INF!

    There seems to be a gradual change in the media response to DT on this side of the Atlantic. It's less hysterical and a lot less astonished. Instead, there seems to be more of a rolling of eyes, a shrug of the shoulders and a lowering of expectations. There is also a lot more willingness to just laugh at his antics and poke fun at him.

    So, he went to Paris - Marcon pointedly rebuked him in a speech that criticised nationalism (Trumpian nationalism, that is); Merkel did something similar; and Troudeau dispensed with an umbrella in the pouring rain.

    Speaking of which; the French army posted a picture of soldiers crawling under wires in the rain with a caption - It's raining; that's not serious. The best retort I heard on the rain thing was that we should be grateful to the US military for finding an excuse (heel spurs) to decline DT's gracious offer to serve. Imagine if they'd sent him to Vietnam and he couldn't fight in the rain.

    Trump's spat with Macron, of course, continued. His comment about being losers in wars seemed particularly spiteful and in poor taste. But, as another wag pointed out, if it wasn't for the English, Americans would be speaking French and Spanish.
