  1. Well you nailed it for one group of rioters. They are being prosecuted and held in jail in some of the most draconian measures we've seen. And I am OK with that. Don't do the crime if you can't serve the time. The other group? Set free, no bail, reduced sentences, etc. Very few actually saw any significant time behind bars. You do see the difference, right?
  2. So, by your logic - if the "stop the steal" stuff that was the basis of the J6 riot had gone on for many months and many more riots, then it would have been "better"??? You want some mustard to go with your pretzel logic there?

    JP is fukin awesome! Thanks for posting, that's one of his better ones.
  4. I've said this before on this site. It's not something I try to hide. My wife and I had an abortion. The pregnancy of my youngest son was really problematic. We were told twice during the pregnancy that we had lost the baby. We had constant scares throughout. My wife had to be on bed rest for something like the last 2 months of the pregnancy. And had been another time during the pregnancy after one of our scares. We were already kind of old to be having kids when we did. My wife was close to 40 when we had our youngest son. It's a borderline miracle that my youngest was born OK and healthy. Fast forward about a year later, maybe more. I can't really remember. My wife didn't want to go back on the pill after our youngest was born. We were using a combination of condoms and the "rhythm method" (mostly because I hated condoms. Yes I am a selfish dickhead). Well we discovered that the rhythm method is not really that good at the whole "not getting pregnant" part and my wife got pregnant. We talked about it for a while. The last pregnancy was so problematic and there was no way this one was going to go better, it would probably go a lot worse. We decided to have an abortion on the basis of very likely implications to my wife's health and the health of the baby. If we had been younger and/or the last pregnancy had gone better we would have 100% had the child. But it just seemed like the risk was too high. About 2 weeks later I was in the doc's office with him jamming a soldering iron into my nuts and giving me a vasectomy.
  5. Wow, just wow. Were you in a coma for all of 2020? Not once in the summer of riots did anyone enter a building, break windows, or break down barriers and assault cops? You do realize that in every single thing you just cited - the summer of riots was significantly worse? And not by a small measure, by a lot.
  6. Silly man, don't you know that there can only be political violence and insurrection if someone is waving a "Trump" flag in the background. No Trump flag = it didn't happen. Haven't you learned anything from the last 2+ years?

    Roe V Wade overturned!!! Leaked, SCOTUS SHOULD BE IMPEACHED

    I think I pretty well outlined my views on abortion in a previous post in another thread. Regarding that question - I would say that somewhere around 20 weeks. But my libertarian side hates that position. That side of me says the cleanest, most logical thing is for gov't to go nowhere near answering that question. Which, to me, doesn't mean that gov't should say "go ahead and get an abortion any time in 9 months". The exact opposite. Gov't should say "we can't answer that question so life starts at conception". But my realist side recognizes that could be a tremendously difficult standard to maintain and could place a tremendous burden upon people and society. So to "split the baby" as they say, I think we should allow abortions up to about 20 weeks and not after that. But I also recognize that I am on very shaky moral ground with that position. Which is why I respect the position that all abortion should be illegal even if I don't agree that that should be our gov't's policy.

    Meh, Portnoy isn't really a deep political thinker. To me the tell for anyone discussing abortion is that if you are "it's a woman's right to chose" and that's it. Then you are a shallow, poorly informed person. You absolutely have to acknowledge the moral issues and the "rights" of the fetus too. That's why something like 90% of Americans don't believe in late term abortions. You can't murder an eight month old fetus and then be like "it's her right to make that choice". So then the whole thing boils down to the "when does life begin question?". And that's a much bigger, more difficult issue than just "it's a woman's right to chose". To me, and this just my opinion, but anyone who says "it's a woman's right to chose" and nothing else is a cop out. They are either too stupid or too gutless to acknowledge the clear moral issues that abortion, and particularly late term abortion, brings with it.
  9. Depends on how much they are pissing me off that day and whether or not I want to thin the herd a bit or not. . .

    Saw that yesterday. This is insane. The most important job in the world and the man needs instructions to "take your seat". It's even worse if you look at the actual instructions. It's like leaving a note for your 8 yr old kid; "after you eat, you wash the dishes, you put the milk back in the refrigerator, you feed the dog. . ." Trump was worse than this???????

    DESANTIS 2024!!! Ron DeSantis :wub:

    You completely missed the parts where I noted Grennell's qualifications. He's qualified, regardless of which sex he likes to bone. The point being he's qualified and being a gay guy would blunt the inevitable attacks that are going to come from the left. Win and win, why not?
