Labour need to get the Tory majority down to -20 at least to have any chance of a SNP deal working and they are just not there.

God dammit.

Yes in theory, but only if we interpret Article 5 in a way that doesn't obligate us to go to war with Russia to "maintain national sovereignty" in areas of those nations that Russia/Russian aligned actors currently occupy.

This is a new low.

From Gatewaypundit? Yeah.

I'm hearing on Al-Jazeera (a Qatari biased source, but still) that the GCC are also imposing a air and naval "embargo" on them.

Wow, is this for real?

They were probably just gathering nearby real demonstrators for the camera to interview them.

This is a non-story. C'mon people.

But why not try to turn it into a force for good? The main problem with it is inequality of access, which is a part of our current system, not the technology.

This.

So, in 10-30 years when "designer" babies are a real thing, and for the first decade or so only the rich will be able to afford the process....the left is going to go bat sh**t aren't they?

The concept (at least in my eyes) would be to have the necessary social-democratic infrastructure in place soon enough to prevent the obvious class divide resulting from this technology.

Unfortunately many in Transhumanist circles are Internet Libertarians who utterly fail to see the trap they would be walking into if it was executed the way they envision.
109  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Transgenderism and Transhumanism on: May 29, 2017, 02:14:28 pm
For the record those degenerates whose pictures you posted are not at all what the Transhumanist movement is about.

We simply can't afford it with the scale and complexity of the US healthcare system. 

Because reasons.

It would depend on who she was running against, obviously.

Epic rant by constituent against Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-NJ). Yes, the same Tom who created the infamous MacArthur Amendment.

Wow.  That video is easily the best thing I've seen in a while.  It really needs to go viral.
114  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rosenstein at DoJ appoints Special Counsel to oversee Russia investigation!! on: May 17, 2017, 05:33:20 pm
There is a difference between Special Counsel and an Independent Counsel:

Yes, that's the critical difference between the Special Counsel & Independent Counsel under the 1978 Act. No legal obstacle; just politics.

Trump could still fire him if he pleases.

So this is all a gag? Or what?
115  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: USA TODAY: Miss USA denounced the word 'feminist,' leaving some fans confused on: May 17, 2017, 05:31:55 pm
I'm pretty sure she's doing it distance herself from the Neo-Dworkinite "SJW"/"campus" feminism that you run into these days.

By definition she is a feminist, but to suggest that the "SJW" (if you will, we all know the type) wing of modern feminism live up to the definition themselves, thus somehow making them the same thing, is utterly intellectually dishonest.
116  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rosenstein at DoJ appoints Special Counsel to oversee Russia investigation!! on: May 17, 2017, 05:25:36 pm
Is there any meaningful difference between a Special Prosecutor and a Special Counsel? Or is it just a different way of phrasing the same thing?
117  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will the FBI retaliate against Trump? on: May 13, 2017, 11:26:46 pm
Hopefully not, since that isn't how law enforcement is supposed to work.

In any case:

Is it retaliation if they just do their jobs and prove he's a crook and/or a traitor?
118  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump vs Zuckerberg vs Kasich on: May 10, 2017, 04:08:38 pm
Ugh.

Zuckerberg is awful. But so is Trump, and Kasich, despite his "Aw, shucks, folks!" persona, is mostly a generic right-wing Republican (and probably would have 0% chance of winning anyway), so I have to go with Zuckerberg.
119  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: BREAKING: Trump Fires Comey on: May 09, 2017, 06:42:23 pm
There are suggestions that now that Comey has been fired that the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation might be reopened.

Jesus Fvcking Christ.

In short, you guys are 'bubble-lized'. You have no understanding of the world outside of the media talking heads. You're brainwashed.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall.....

121  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which form of delegate allocation is the best in primaries? on: May 05, 2017, 08:06:30 pm
Winner-Take-All by State.

That way we can rally around a nominee somewhat early without these ridiculous drag-out "contests" (see Clinton V Sanders). But having smaller states go early in a staggered contest also leaves the ability for "lesser" candidates to have the ability to gain traction and momentum.
122  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Huey Long on: May 05, 2017, 07:27:30 pm
FF, considering his economic views, and considering that his racial views were good for a Deep South white guy of that era.
123  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The TrumpCare comes back from the dead (...and lives!) thread on: May 04, 2017, 10:43:16 pm
What the House passed was written so as to only consist of stuff that would be considered "budgetary" in nature.

Okay. Thanks.

So in theory the GOP could unilaterally repeal the ACA with 51 votes?

124  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The TrumpCare comes back from the dead (...and lives!) thread on: May 04, 2017, 07:49:06 pm
Some somebody break it down for me how the GOP in the Senate could pass healthcare reform via reconciliation? I thought it could only be used for budget issues explicitly? Not outright changes in the law.

Thanks in advance.

Anyone?
