Re: Bend those coat hangers Let ‘er rip!

Kinda funny how that works, isn't it? The mother can kill the baby up until birth and the father has no say, but once that baby is born, suddenly the father is responsible for that child and supporting it for the next 17 years.

Where are father rights in all of this?

89.1 CISO (Ontario) flips to alternative

Their 70s/80s/90s format didn't last very long. Now they're alternative (90s through now) as "Max FM." Gave it a quick listen online. https://www.playmax.ca/ - not my cup of tea, but they do have a "No Nickelback guarantee" Which I find kind of interesting since Nickelback is Canadian. They also see...

Re: Whitmer to the Wrongfully Imprisoned: "Fuck you!"

So you are trying to vilify another "non old white guy" political leader? You are the only person in this thread to make this about race. You people on the left just can't help yourselves, can you? When people you support have their POLICIES criticized, your defensive reaction is "oh, it must be ab...

Re: I’m Really Concerned about the Divide in America

Mega Hertz - that is quite a story! Sorry your family had to go through that. Makes my story kind of pale in comparison. My dad was accused of making a bomb threat over a pay phone. He was arrested though never convicted as the prosecutor dropped the charges at the preliminary exam just seconds befo...

Still waiting on a shred of evidence for any of your claims of me.
This is laughable coming from someone who makes broad generalizations about millions of people based on the actions of a few. Where is YOUR evidence that each and every police officer is a Constitution-hating pig?

Re: I’m Really Concerned about the Divide in America

In some ways, I agree with our police hating friend. His problem is that he makes broad generalizations about all police based on the actions of the 2 or 3 percent that are bad apples. My family has had a run-in with a few bad apples (in fact it led to 7 years of litigation in federal court) but I ...

Re: I’m Really Concerned about the Divide in America

Freedom and division aren't mutually exclusive concepts. Also, this thread was about modern-day division in this country - not divisions that existed in England well over 200 years ago. Dissent and disagreement are one thing (I agree that we need healthy disagreement and dissent), but division is an...

If the latter half of this doesn't constitute trolling and warrant movement into the DBR, then I don't know what does.

Re: I’m Really Concerned about the Divide in America

I wouldn't be too worried about what you read in the comments sections of various news sites - I heard just yesterday of a study that found that on Twitter, 80 percent of all tweets come from 10 percent of the user base. I suspect similar numbers apply to comments. The loudest and whiniest people ou...

Re: Whitmer ultimatum: No budget signature without 'real' road funding

I think I've been quite clear that I was no fan of Snyder. Not sure how that is relevant to Whitmer governing very differently than how she campaigned.

Re: Whitmer ultimatum: No budget signature without 'real' road funding

Funny how Whitmer ran and campaigned as a moderate who could work with republicans to get things done, and now that she's in office she won't even support a bill with bi-partisan support.

It is gonna be a long 6 years.
