Fewer than one in six Americans want U.S. soldiers deployed to defend Ukraine if Russia invades the country, according to a new poll published on Friday, as high level talks got underway in Geneva.
A poll from Convention of States Action (COSA) in partnership with the Trafalgar Group found that just 15.3 percent of likely general election voters…[Read more]
Russia’s Foreign Ministry has denounced remarks by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Moscow’s involvement in Kazakhstan, telling Washington it would know better about arriving somewhere uninvited and overstaying its welcome.
Asked about ongoing protests and rioting across Kazakhstan during a Friday press briefing, Blinken argued the s…[Read more]
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court’s conservative majority seemed to be leaning on Friday toward blocking one of the White House’s main pandemic-fighting strategies, expressing skepticism that the Biden administration has the legal power to mandate that large employers require workers to be vaccinated or to undergo frequent testing.

I think Congress (and the government political establishment as a whole) is scared. It’s not necessarily Trump and his clan that they are afraid of. But the fact that you had a protest that suddenly turned into a mob and a riot with no central leader or authority organizing it. It evolved on its own and was able to stop Congress for 3 hours. If…[Read more]

I don’t buy it.
China wants their own sphere. They don’t want to share it with Moscow. I know they sort of have a common enemy. But hell, these two countries rarely got along even when they both were strictly communist at the height of the cold war!
In recent decades, Russia has tried to flirt an alliance several times and the Chinese always get…[Read more]
Some here are getting VERY confused, and I want to point some things out….
Disagreement with gender roles or stereotypes isn’t what causes gender dysphoria. A “Tom Boy” is in disagreement with gender roles/stereotypes. She will dress as a boy. She will play in the mud with boys. She’ll wrestle with boys and climb trees. She may even get a boy’s…[Read more]
Democrats are largely ignoring the issue completely because they know people aren’t going to vote based solely on this issue if it stays outside the mainstream discussion. Right now, it’s being pushed hard by mostly conservatives and the TERF feminists. But when people vote, they have far different priorities on their mind. And the Democratic…[Read more]

Can you blame people for not trusting Big Pharma and a for-profit healthcare system? Do you think they are out to find the best treatments or vaccines to help make humanity healthier? Or are they looking for what makes the most money?

If Russia becomes more aggressive militarily, a number of its neighbors may become nervous. Finland has already been invaded before.
jerry611 replied to the topic Why are US rightwingers so angry? Because they know social change is coming in the forum General Discussion 4 weeks ago
What social change are they talking about? And what’s with the obsession with population percentages? It’s completely meaningless. Is there going to be some earthshattering change when white people dip below 50%? I can give you endless examples throughout history where a racial or ethnic minority population (by percentage) were able to oppress…[Read more]

It will get much worse because hospitals fired doctors and nurses that refused the vaccine. So now these hospitals are short-staffed even more than before.

These cruise ships are 100% vaccinated.
The vaccine is not stopping Omicron.
Supreme Court accepted the appeal. They want the government to respond to the appeal by Dec 30th and they will have arguments on Jan 7th. At that point, they will decide whether to issue a stay.
If they stay it, the mandate is basically dead. The case will still continue, but SCOTUS will be tipping their hand which will no doubt influence the…[Read more]

The statistics go both ways. In other words, there are male dominated fields and there are also female dominated fields. The focus is always on the question of why there are few women in tech, but perhaps if you want to get to the bottom of the bigger problem, we should ALSO ask why so few men are in female-dominated careers. Women make up 90% of…[Read more]
Has the Washington Post done anything to counter what is said in his book?
I would like journalists to dig in his book and tell me what in it is incorrect and where is the proof it’s incorrect? Giving quotes from “intelligence sources” and family members is not valid.
Of course I’m demanding that the Washington Post actually performs some real…[Read more]
Viruses are going to do what viruses do… especially when your vaccine is weak, loses effectiveness within only months, and doesn’t halt the spread. Viruses always mutate to more contagious forms. That’s evolution.

It’s not really that shocking. The prosecution was a mess and their witnesses had issues.
But the city and police share blame for this killing. The policy in a lot of cities when there is demonstrations is for the police to pull back because the thinking is that will lower the temperature. Many demonstrators claim the police antagonize. So the t…[Read more]
