    My solution to the arguments flags on the chessboard sometimes cause.

    Part 2 of how come the good guys are so good with good guys examples
    followed by RHP bad examples. Take comfort in the fact that your losses
    are actually helping others RHP members from suffering the same fate.

    One of the good guys positions. What would you do?

    Then a James Aitken game that had me recalling a blast from the RHP past.

    Levi’s 501 1984 laundrette commercial with him as the young 1950s pin up is legendary and one of best TV adds ever.

    Maher does an excellent sketch on this.
    The republicans forever claim to be the party of family values, anti-drugs and are forever condemning anything kinky.

    Yet, the reality is that many of their politicians are shagging prostitutes, are into thrupples, snort cocaine and go to sex parties.

    What the hell’s going on over there?

    Control the media and thus manipulate the exact message you want the voting public to receive.
    Continue to have elections, to maintain the appearance of national self-determination.
    Rig those elections in your favor and howl with protest when you’re caught doing so. The media will cover for you and forestall any serious fraud inquires, preserving your stolen elections. Moun ...[text shortened]... sing any initiative, so you can “eliminate debate,” as one of your leading voices said so memorably.
    You sound frustrated.
    Not having much sex lately, eh?

    It’s your personality. Sort it out, sex will follow.

    Where can I send the bill to?

    Clearly you don't have any idea what a Progressive wants .
    1.Medicare for All is first on the list . Bernie Sanders plan will save Americans $400 billion each and every year . Read the report in the Lancet or if you are illiterate find a friend to read it to you . Use Google for the big words .
    2 . Minimum wage gradually increased to $15 per hour .
    As for the rest of the garbage you spewed , it is a lie .
    News Flash !!! Biden is NOT a Progressive . Biden is NOT a Socialist .
    Progressives consider Democrats to be the left wing of the Republican Party .
    Educate yourself to remedy your obvious ignorance .

    May I remind everyone that Biden is not ANYTHING! Have you even looked at hime lately. Jesus.


    It is quite clear that Old Joe is appeasing the people that got him elected. Show the moderate to fool
    the voting people and then swing in the liberal ideology. Absolutely.
    So far he is closely hewing to his campaign promises. If anything, he's backed down from a few of the more progressive ones. Take a look here if you don't believe me: https://joebiden.com/build-back-better/

    Obviously he doesn't agree with the main thrust of right wing politics these days i.e. to try to limit the number of POC voting by any means necessary and to maintain those obsolete features of our system that limit representative democracy.

    The problem is, though, the policemen can’t take 100% of the blame on this.

    There’s so much polarisation and friction on the whole issue, wrong choices (arming the police to the teeth, giving them tasks which shouldn’t be handed to the police services), warped expectations of what is humanly possible, unclear goals and sweeping generalisations, that it’s an accident waiting to happen.

    If somebody wants to be known by a new name, just go with that. Name changes are very transparent on this site.

    a black activist judge appointed by bill clinton...end of story.
    Well, we know you don't like the "black" part but what makes him an "activist"?

    He was confirmed by the US Senate in 1997 by a 91-0 vote. https://www.democrats.senate.gov/10/27/1997/senate-roll-call-vote-00279-8

    Heck, even Strom Thurmond voted "Yea". https://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=105&session=1&vote=00279

    Why computers are like women:

    - No one but the Creator understands their internal logic.
    - The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
    - Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.
    - As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

    "That creaking sound? It’s the United Kingdom starting to break apart"

    "Any residual argument for Scotland to stay within the United Kingdom meets its counter-argument in Boris Johnson. Westminster politics has always been the preserve of a remote enclave, on ...[text shortened]... le without the breakup of the union. We will begin to be good only when we stop trying to be great."
    JMHO - This is possible, but not likely. Despite their cultural differences, Scotland, Wales, and to a lesser extent, Ireland are still joined to England by the same land mass. Complete independence from England after centuries of unity would be as difficult as Texas becoming Independent from the US or Quebec breaking away from Canada.

    What do you think? Is it acceptable to own slaves? Is it acceptable to beat up a slave, as long as you don't kill them?

    I don't think you find either of these acceptable. I don't think most of today's Christians do. It is shocking to hear a modern person endorse that sort of slavery.
