  1. Alvin Zhakata's walk

    This is just plain heroic, there's no better word for it. What a guy. Europe went borderless within the majority of its area, I'd be delighted if Mr Zhakata's vision comes about in Africa too. It's a matter of justice that the principle of open borders extends fully across the planet but...

  2. Quiltbag

    The BBC has started making reference to the LGBTQIA+ community (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-suffolk-48730483). This is beyond unsayable. I have tried reeding the passage aloud and whether I use the letters or the full text (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex or...

  3. Moral outrage

    I think - I may be wrong, it's only a suggestion - that if you handed round a questionnaire asking what aspects of eighteenth century life were moral outrages on a scale way past any other, the most common answer would be slavery. My other suggestion is that if you ask the same question about...

  4. What Song Is This?

    No, no, this belongs in 'political discussions'. Give it a moment. Just after I finished reading this article (https://consortiumnews.com/2018/10/24/facebook-censorship-of-alternative-media-just-the-beginning-warns-top-neocon-insider/) a certain song popped into my head. This isn't necessarily...

  5. Saudi Arabia Financed the Killers of American Troops I Commanded

    I don't believe we should have ever had troops in either Afghanistan or Iraq. We should have bombed Saudi Arabia instead. "Recently, the crimes of the Saudi government managed to pierce the Trump-all-the-time-Kanye-West-sometimes media-entertainment complex due to Riyadh’s likely murder of...

  6. Trump Reneging On Charity Promise

    Donald Trump said he would donate one million dollars to a charity of her choice if Elizabeth Warren would take a DNA test proving she had Native American lineage. She did, she does, and now he doesn't want to pay up claiming he never said it.

  7. Brett Kavanaugh

    Has anyone here been following the events regarding the US Supreme Court hearings? After watching both Ford and Kavanaugh, I find it difficult to imagine Kavanaugh on the SCOTUS. Kavanaugh's behavior strikes me as that of a guilty person, and also that of an alcoholic. Also, the antics of...

  8. How the FBI Silences Whistleblowers

    "The idea of “whistleblowing” has been in the news a great deal. Is the anonymous author of a recent New York Times op-ed eviscerating the president a whistleblower? Is the victim of an alleged sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh a whistleblower? I’m fortunate to...

  9. Does Trump's NAFTA Correct the Damage Clinton Did to Workers?
