    There was once an enormous slavery culture. It was Biblically-ordained and endorsed. It must have looked unassailable and immortal. Today, other than Jeff Sessions' fever dreams, it's all gone. Likewise the entire cultural edifice enslaving women, infantalyzing them, demonizing them for their sexuality, and reducing them to plumbing, will someday be gone. The notion of old men making choices to control the lives of young women, ostensibly for their and the public good, will be looked on as a disgusting iron age vestige we finally eradicated, just like slavery.
    It still requires women to be able to tolerate the various methods all of which either require foolproof barriers (none available) or hormonal treatment (many women do not feel well on them). I have a better idea. They need to invent a stopcock (couldn't help myself) to shut off the tubes from the testicles. The vas is easily accessible. Shouldn't be that hard.

    During the campaign Trump sought African-American support, asking “what have you got to lose?” In Indiana, the answer is: the opportunity to vote. A new state law would close hundreds of polling locations in areas with large minority populations. Meanwhile, for years—including Albino Avenger Pence’s years as governor--early voting locations in suburban districts have been increased. Indiana GOP doing just fine w/o help from the Ruskies.

    That kind of defeats the purpose, no?

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    The problem is, you can't trust men. They don't start thinking ahead until they're about 40. They don't start thinking while they're hard until they're about 80. Plus a woman wouldn't (and shouldn't) trust a man when it's her body on the line.

    It has to be for women. All perfect birth control for men will do is halve the species IQ each generation.

    All of what you say is true but I can hope. I always told my patients- you can love them all you want. I don't trust the ba5tards. Protect yourself.

    You know, am I the only one who seem to think that Un is trying to bait dump into a first strike?

    If not, I can't even come close to thinking that NK can come close to winning a war they start. All it can do is 1) kill a lot of people, and 2) result in the end of NK. Unless China steps in, which would just kill a lot more people.

    I can't see any upside to that for Kim. Right now it's not like he has to worry about his favorability polling. His regime depends on his army. The only way to p-ss off his army would be to interrupt their standard of living, and provoking US strategic bombing of DPRK military facilities would downgrade a lot of officers' quality of life to quality of death.

    NK hasn't done anything they haven't done a thousand times since 1955. This is the language and the BS they do. The smallfry always talk tough at the bar when the gunslinger is in town. This is nothing different. While it's possible their actual capabilities have changed, (1) that doesn't matter since the only way they stay alive is by never, ever using it, and (2) I would tend to doubt it anyway. This whole thing smells to me as a way of squeezing another few trillion out of the taxpayer absent any actual threat to US security. This looks like a lobbying effort between the DOD, the contractors, and their enablers in government (both sides of the aisle) and media (likewise). It's a hostage crisis, but the North Koreans aren't holding Americans hostage, the folks who directly benefit from these expenditures are holding the taxpayers hostage. (3) Obviously, Trump gains from a wag the dog scenario. He's at 30-something approval; in case of a war his approval would go to 80% overnight -- most of the voters are lower order primates who respond to fear with aggression and a deep psychological drive for a Strongman.

    So no, I don't thing Kim wants to mess with any of that.

    My one gun law is the people in the local area get to decide. So if the good people of Portland, Oregon want to outlaw all guns, so be it. For everybody. Make firearms possession and use a felony -- for everybody, no exceptions, city cops can carry billy clubs. State cops have them but only get called in under emergency situations. Oh yeah, and tasers kill too, so they count. No more of that sh-t.

    If you're John Q. Criminal and take advantage of the situation as the legendary "one bad guy," make the laws tough enough that with the commission of a crime with a weapon you're never seeing the light of day again.

    The only problem with that assessment, is that since 1955, there hasn't been a president so thin-skinned that Un trash-talking him gets him so wound up that he jumps immediately to, "well I'm gonna show him mode". Whatever NK is doing, Trumpy takes it as a personal attack on him, and we all know how he reacts to personal attacks. Lashing out and upping the ante.

    Later, Mr Trump added: "He has disrespected our country greatly. He has said things that are horrific and with me he's not getting away with it. It's a whole new ball game.
    Oooooh, he said nasty things about me. So let's nuke him.

    What a friggin' child.

    Other than doing nothing, there are no upsides for NK.

    But it sometimes seems as if he's fine with being destroyed to make dump look like a massive aggressor. And then he can be blamed for all the resulting deaths.

    Honestly, dump doesn't have to say anything- un has to know we can destroy him many times over. But un knows that dump will come out with the crap that he is.

    dump is just stating the obvious- if we are attacked, we will react very soundly- and I can't see any President since Ike that would do anything different. It would be easy to say "Un knows what we can do, as does the rest of the world- they would be better served by talking than threatening."

    Wait- dump is worried that words can be disrespectful??? I thought he was against being PC and all of that verbal respect stuff.

    Who knew that words can be so bad...

    And that's the adult way of handling it.

    But this president is such a child, and such a hot head who takes everything personally, it's very easy to see how this escalation of words is gonna end up in something very not good.

    Trumpy can say anything he wants about anybody. But do not say anything bad about Trumpy. Trumpy will make you pay.
