WHEN they see it through. Ending Roe v Wade has been a top priority for the 50 years since it was decided, and they are almost certain to get their way this time.

Regarding the tennis player - oh, never mind.

The tennis player will likely show back up...re-educated and apologetic.

Xi is somewhat less crude than Vlad Putin or some of the other strongmen and is actually embarrassed by some things when he gets caught.

So… The tennis player shouldn’t have been doing what she did in the first place. Anyway, there’s not much to worry about because the bad guy responsible for her disappearances really not one of the severe bad guys in anyway.

Reassuring.

By the way, I made that post more out of surprise than anything. Those are major news stories, and they didn’t catch our attention. Neither did the Michigan school shooting, so far as I can tell. It just made me wonder.

These topics grabbed our attention, even without the baiting of Truk Nutz, but I doubt anyone wants to debate on such uncontroversial topics, that even denialism fails to provide a defense. The only possible discussion boils down to an "Aint it awful" rendition and who can provide the worst possible outcomes thanks to the corrupt evildoers.
I think a better discussion would be about the rotting SCROTUS, that was my previously, more respectful, reference to the "Supremes"! BTW I actually looked for an antonym for supreme, and couldnt find one. We need a new word to define it, and I'm open to suggestions. Now that SCROTUS is not sufficiently insulting to describe the current "high" crazy court new modifiers are needed. Under consideration are SCROTTENOUS, NECROCROTILOUS, and REDBALLS!
There is no need to invoke Truculent Nutz to grab our doggies, paraphrasing presidential oratory.

Most major news stories avoid coverage here, maybe because there's just so many of them?

When stories get politicized is when they are invited past our threshold.

Watch when they come in...they cast no shadow nor reflection.

Like those last couple of murder trials. And, Tat, Roe v Wade is anything but uncontroversial.

But, hey, whatever.

I don't think inventing ever more complex insults ever adds much to any conversation.

No matter who you're talking about.

Context is everything, Mello
R V W would not be controversial here, just like it would not be controversial in Rapture World.
