    Re: covid-19 Virus Updates and Discussion

    Do not forget that the caste system, although legally abolished in India, remains well in practice in many regions. The religious caste system is still very much practiced.

    Sticky: Re: '20 Racquet Smashing Contest

    I consider these to be completely within the rules of this contest. The destruction is clear. The intent is there. The rage must be present.

    Just another religious nationalist. The fact that he is Hindi is simply anecdotal.

    Re: The Run to the WH

    On the one hand: sure, all these cuts are sick.
    On the other: if you have slashed your revenue by giving all those tax breaks to your friends, you simply have no money to hand out. So the cuts are...

    Why would Tiny wait to exonerate Stone? After everything he has done, he is at his highest approval rating. The Senate is his doormat. The Dems are ripping each other apart and giving him all the...

    I wonder how many "normal" people would test positive for any substance, seeing how supplements are such a big business.

    Re: A Chronicle of our Descent to Hades

    Disagree. I would take any woman as president over Mike Pence. I would even take Sarah Palin, and you know she is insane.

    And to think I repeatedly posted AGAINST the death penalty in that thread.
