Let's not forget it were George W. Bush and fellow neocons' f**kups that paved the way for Trumpism.

At risk of being buried under the mounting outrage, there was no such concepts as "homophobia" or "misogyny" when the Bible was being written and adopted.

wouldn't the most tragic poster be that one poster who was actually good poster (compared to every other sock creator, ever) that made a sock and then left out of embarrassment?  I want to say SJoyner (or whatever his name was), but I might be miss remembering.

You're most likely referring to JSojourner. I miss him too. And it would be utterly hypocritical for me to criticize him for this anyway.

His sock was really good one, btw. IIRC the only thing that betrayed him was using the same IP.

People should be able to boycott whomever and whatever they want, period. This isn't about Israel, as much as it's about the principle/

You've lost me with the "alleged torture" part.

Anyway, there will be plenty of time and opportunity to voice less-than-favorable opinions of McCain. Doing it here right now isn't the best idea.

As TiK said above, the Bible was written by various people at various times. Still, it's thousands years old and aside of fruitcakes no one takes these verses literally anymore.

Personally I call the Old Testament the greatest crime/gore book of all times.

BRTD is clearly trolling and you all give him exactly what he wanted.

...? It's not a troll.

on AAD when I posted this I got 8 likes and 4 dislikes, so it seems there the opinion is net positive.

No relevance found.

You mean the same word that is the name of the conservative party in Australia? 🤔

Trudeau and Macron are centrists. Deal with it.

It's all relative. Both would be among the most liberal U.S. senators if they were members, probably in the top 10 with heroes like Sanders, Warren, Booker, Brown, etc.

Putting Booker in the same wing as Sanders or Warren is inaccurate at best. Putting Trudeau and Macron there as well only shows the poster above has no idea about differences between American liberalism and their brand of liberalism.

In the Sixteen Century Kingdom of Poland (frequently refereed to as the Crown) and Grand Duchy of Lithuania were joined in a personal union under the House of Jagiellon and possible real union had been more and more considered. It finally happened when the Union of Lublin was signed July 1, 1569, creating a single state, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth.

It was a time when the executionist movement was particularly active. The movement, representing middle and petty nobility, sought to curb the power of "magnates" by strengthening the royal authority, a revendication of public and state lands which were illegally held by them, as well as limiting the Papal's influence via Polish and Lithuanian Catholic churches. At the time of the Union the executionists, also known as "popularists" got a clear upper hand. After passing of the last Jagiellonian monarch, King Sigismund August, the Commonwealth became an elective monarchy. After a brief rule of King Henry of Valois, Stefan Batory, the Duke of Prince of Transylvania, was elected and used his newly strenghted royal authority to purge some notable mangates and to bring representatives of middle nobility to positions of power. After Batory's death in 1586, Swedish Prince Sigismund was elected. Unfortunately, he was nowhere as able as a ruler as Batory, being obsessed with his right to the Swedish crown. During a dramatic showdown, Sejm forced Sigismund to renounce these claims, effectively ensuring peace with Sweden.

Sigismund's son, Władysław, proved to be a strong monarch, interested es specially in military affairs. Władysław, greatly esteemed by the Cossacks, succeeded in provoking a victorious war with the Ottoman Empire. An important side effect was ensuring that the Cossacks became a reliable arm of the monarchy. In 1648 disgrunted magnates, led by Prince Jeremi Wiśniowiecki, staged a "rokosz" (that is mutiny), which, to the amazement of Europe, was quickly quelled by the Cossacks and middle nobility. Wiśniowiecki and fellow leaders were publicly executed. Unfortunately, King Władysław passed shortly after.

His brother, Jan Kazimierz, elected to the throne, was a weak leader, but he was effectively aided by the strong-willed Queen Ludwika Maria and the Crown Chancellor, Jerzy Ossoliński. By 1655 the Polish-Lithuanian state was formally transformed into a Polish-Lithuanian-Ruthenian state. The main opposition against giving Orthodox Ukraine the same legal status came from the Vatican. However, by that year Polish and Lithuanian Catholic Church, while remaining de jure part of the wider Roman Catholic community, essentially evolved in the same way as the French Gallican Rite. King Jan Kazimierz abdicated in 1868, thus ending the rule of Vasas. During a dramatic election the French candidate, Louis de Bourbon, Prince of Condé, a famous military leader, won. Poland-Lithuania-Ruthenia was now being ruled by the House of Bourbon, Condé branch.

Hope he can get through this........FF as a person.
No he isn't. He doesn't deserve cancer but let's not pretend he's in anyway a "good person."

Though I think McCain is a decent guy personally, he forfeit his "maverick" status when he voted with Bush 90% of the time and, after 2009, belonged to the GOP obstructionist machine in Congress. I'd call him FF personally and HP politically.

Google translate is actually pretty accurate these days, even when sentences are put into it

Try google translating Arabic or Polish and you'd change your mind instantly.

A place with a bunch full of self-hating morons and assholes, who have nothing better to do than talking about me behind my back, coming to weird conclusions and character-assassinate me ...

You know, we're doing exactly the same here, on the Old Atlas.

Nope. It's more vicious and obvious on the other one. Shame on you.

Anyway, they can't try to assasinate your character, it's long dead.

And I've never been to the toxic place.

Then we had an imposter.


Since u guys think I was on AAD when I never was , I think that place probably is filled with imposters.

Haven't there been an opebo impostor, which almost caused BRTD to s**t his pants out of joy?
