    Yet you represent a society that deems being a rapist is more credible than someone with the allegation of being slutty/whores. To put it another way, Many rapists have claimed the victim was/is a slut/whore, thus they aren't credible. It doesn't matter if making the allegation of them being sluts/whores is true. Often it's false. But somehow, having the allegation that you were a slut makes you less credible, than the allegation of being a rapist. Nah. I actually want crimes to be investigated thoroughly and for a court of law to decide their fate. You on the other hand, want investigations squashed because it might tarnish any mans (well, Conservative men, you'd throw a liberal under a bus) reputation, and deem any and all victims as non-credible by making allegations that their character is non-credible. Here's my modus operandi. If a police officer shoots a human being. Put them on Paid leave. Conduct an Investigation via 3rd party to conclude whether it was justifiable or not. In-house investigations are highly scrutinized by the public, and prone to extreme bias and corruption. If a rape allegation is made, take it seriously. (IF society takes rape allegations/charges seriously, we may not have to deal with 5+ year old allegations in the future, that can't really be proved.) That's it. Investigate, test rape kits (instead of letting them rot in storage) determine if charges can be made. based on the evidence. Don't shelve it because the mayor's kid is involved. Don't shelve it because you think she's a whore. Conservatives and whites in general. Conservative? Or actually a libertarian? That doesn't fit your narrative of Liberals blindly supporting things like BLM and racial identity politics. Honestly I don't think you care about whether someone is guilty or innocent of heinous crimes. You just care if they are on your side, and if what they do hurts your side or not. And if it does, how can you protect them while they are in power long enough so that it doesn't backfire on your politics. But hey, you're a lawyer, there's a reason your hated more than the Jews, Blacks, and Isis.

    Ever thought that perhaps those rape victims weren't sluts/whore to begin with? That society used that logic, to brand those victims as Sluts and Whores to make them less credible? Has that ever.. occurred to you? It's like the black market, or illegal Aliens, we can only guess how many tens of thousands there were. I hazzard a guess the numbers are FAR greater than you believe. Welp, you guy's don't care about executing potentially innocent people with the Death Penalty, so what's it matter right? Via conservative logic, It's better to put someone in prison wrongfully and get all the bad guys in prison, then to let one bad guy out. Better to make voting as hard as possible, lest one person make a fraudulent vote. There's clearly a middle ground, and the court of law helps establish innocent versus Guilty. But that doesn't mean society isn't allowed to Ostracize people they believe did it, even if the court of law doesn't believe they did. Just look at how many Conservatives still think OJ killed his wife. Ya'll ostracized the shit out of the man.

    Political Musings

    Occasionally we all get thoughts or ideas that we want to express, but we haven't fully fleshed them out into a full idea/argument yet. Sometimes you'll be taking a shower, or sitting/kneeling on/in the porcelain throne when muse whispers in your ear, and an idea just pops into your head. Examples like: Political Musings would be of a similar vein.

    House Resolution #1 (2019)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/house-democrats-1st-bill-targets-big-donors-voting-access/2018/11/30/8562c098-f48f-11e8-99c2-cfca6fcf610c_story.html https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/11/30/18118158/house-democrats-anti-corruption-bill-hr-1-pelosi Vox listed these as goals of the bill. I love this from a 3rd party perspective. Those guys need as much money as they can get to even hope to compete with the big boys. I don't know the specific details of those acts, but I see no reason to not support this. Given all the crap Facebook & Twitter's been up to, I can see this getting bi-partisan support.... or at least public support from joe schmo democrat/republican. Yea... how about we just take that out of this bill if you want to give it a chance to pass? How.. are they going to stop this? Or are we going to actually... you know. Audit these guys instead of just giving them a free-pass on business expenses? First-Class tickets? What if they pay the difference? What if, and it happens, they can buy a first class cheaper than not-first class? What if First Class is the only seat available and they have to take that flight? So... Pelosi wants to give the OGE more oversight/enforcement to a position granted by the President? That she sees as corrupt? Well at least that might get republican support... To put it another way. Who's overseeing the OGE? That is... very vague. Not against this really. I just hope this includes mailings that remind voters of upcoming votes, times/dates/locations. This can easily be done when you get a license/update it. Well, redistricting has to happen, so how do we do it in a way that is unbiased? And voter roll purging needs to happen from time to time. Are they really just trying to get republicans mad and claim dead-voters again? You tack on voter-ID laws, and you'll get a ton of republican support for just this. If you nail people from both sides with this, you'll get the support of the American People... specially if both Clinton & Trump get nailed hard.

    I seem to recall within the last 18 years (Probably during the Bush Era) either an 18 or 19 year old Highschool Senior, going to jail & becoming a sex offender for having sex with his 17/16 year old highschool senior girlfriend. The only reason it happened is because the parents filed a lawsuit when they found out. I believe age of consent was a given in this case, but they used some technicality of still a minor to make the guy a sex offender. I don't believe this happened too much back in your day, specially in the 60s & 70s. Earlier than that, you were likely to get shot by parents for having sex outside of marriage. Eh, I'm pretty sure back in the 70s and 80s, only a few women would step forward to the police if they felt they were raped during such an occasion. Society & police were rather uncaring about it. Oh? You were wearing a short skirt? Must have asked for it. Oh? You were drunk? Oh well. How many thousands went on with their lives because society at the time would brand you as a slut/whore/liar for trying to make a rape allegation? Specially if the woman didn't come from an affluent family. I'm not viewing the 60s-80s with the same rosey tinted glasses ya'll older folks do.

    Eternally depressed? Nah. That's Russians your thinking of. For many, you don't feel depressed if you're to drunk to feel your feet. Sure you can. Never had baby corn? /thread

    If a Refugee from Slovakia is fleeing genocide from the Ukraine, heading to Germany through Czechia. By Cubarey's definition they would not be refugees if Czechia is willing to grant them refugee status, even if they are really just pulling a bait and switch scheme with the Ukraine.

    Who should/will the Dems run in 2020?

    Being a surgeon, and being the president are two completely different things. There is no 8+ year degree requirement to be president. You aren't required to be a lawyer, a businessman, or even ex-military. Literally any tom dick or harry can be President. So you're argument is nonsense. Trump is a horrible president, NOT because he's an glorified reality tv star. He's a bad president, precisely because he is a horrible human being. Any actor in Hollywood, are just as much of a businessman/woman as reality tv star Trump. Sometimes Hollywood actors have agents, sometimes they represent themselves. They all negotiate, and make deals, some like Sienfield are better at it then others.

    Who should/will the Dems run in 2020?

    Do you want Trump out? Also: Why does being a celebrity, automatically disqualify you from public office? It has always been more of a popularity contest over candidates that actually having knowledge/experience about the office or the issues. This is the exact line of logic conservatives use when telling celebrities/nfl players to sit down, and shut up and get back in their isle. You want to beat Trump? Use someone popular. Don't choose someone who's qualified but universally hated. Still blaming bernie bros on the Trump election I see... Bernie Bros didn't lose the democrat election. Hillary did.

    This reminds me. If I ever go to New York, I fully plan to eat a slice of Pizza with a Fork and Knife, just to screw with native New Yorkers. Similar thing with Chicago and Hot Dogs, but not loading it up, and eating it sideways.

    Who should/will the Dems run in 2020?

    Tom Hanks should run. Everyone loves him, no one has a bad thing to say about him, and even if he doesn't even know what he's doing. All he has to do is use his acting skill and act like a good president and he'll do a great job. Perhaps Samuel L Jackson? I'd love to see Mike Rowe run. But I'd doubt he'd run Republican or Democrat... Plus he lacks the will to run. It's not something he would ever want to do. Which is precisely why he should get the vote. I say, Vote for the guy that doesn't want power. Last time we did that.. Was George Washington.

    I'm sure. He also lived in a time when sex with someone passed out drunk wasn't barely a crime. He also lived in a time when 2 Highschool seniors dating wasn't potentially a felony sex-offender crime (17 year old & 18 year old)... You were just more likely to get shot by the parents.

    Kinda? Mead is supposed to be Honey Wine. Specifically fermented Honey. I have no idea if that honey wine I had, was actually fermented honey, or just wine with honey flavoring. Also: It's kind of like if you've never had Sushi Before. Does Gas Station Sushi count as real sushi, or do you have to go to a reasonably high quality Sushi restaurant to really say you've had it? I've had Shrimp/Lobster/Crab. But have I really had it, if I haven't eaten it, at a restaurant on the east/west that got it freshly caught that morning?

    Exactly. You'd think that but at least up here there isn't. In the cities? Maybe. This is Beer/Whiskey/Vodka country. They love their beer and hard liqueur up here.

    That's one I've always wanted to try. I did find a local honey wine which might technically be Mead, but it wasn't branded as Mead. Finding it locally isn't.. easy.

    Many of those jobs, are also able to be taught, on the job. Many of those technical schools are 6 weeks of education. Do you need to go to school to pick up trash cans? Or operate a trash-can lifter? Perhaps. But I'd say the vast majority of business owners that vote Trump very much have a problem with tech school jobs. They probably hate the fact that those people even vote. Ummm Yea you do. If every card carrying American within the next 20 years has a 2+ Year degree, they are all above Janitor jobs. Do you really think there are only 1 Million Janitorial jobs in the US?

    Perhaps, but if you ever watch Mike Rowe, there's clearly jobs (skills gap) out there for the lowest wrung's of our society, Many Americans, like you feel those jobs are beneath them. So at some point we're going to reach this tipping point where American's won't do the jobs that keep society moving along, while at the same time trying to block/rely on automation to solve that gap. So you may see them as having no use in our modern day society, other's see them, perhaps as our future while we gear-shift up into even further higher education.... In an ultra-educated society, someone's got to be the Janitor.

    True. But if anyone embodies the American spirit, I'd assume those running from Drug Cartels in Latin America would, over Muslim refugees from the middle east, escaping religious persecution from other Muslims, with no real ambition to become American, integrate, and expect their laws to come with them. (Not all obviously.)

    House Resolution #1 (2019)

    The only benefit I see from this... at all. Is if this ever becomes bi-partisan, that's the first thing that gets the chopping block. That's one of the obvious problems I thought of is.. do you include their salary as public money.. or not? Personally, I don't think I'd define a paycheck as public money. Some kind of spending account? I'd call that public money. Couldn't that section of the act be a mandate that each state has X amount of time to meet the guidelines/minimums set by said act? State ID/Driver's license real ID law is supposed to require more information effectively proving you are a citizen. So tying it to the Real ID system/drivers license/state ID. (which you are required to have for even traveling inside the US. Except if your from Minnesota.) The main problem is, you only need to renew your Driver's License what.. every 4-6 years? Maybe more? Or every time you have a new address. I had a co-worker that I can only explain as politically confused. He sided with many liberal/democrat issues, despised trump/disagreed with most Republicans issues. But he wasn't Democrat or Libertarian. One of the issues he aligned with, with conservatives was on things like sexual assault and rape charges. Guy still believes Cosby's innocent. My hunch? I think he's guilty of something in his past, and doesn't want to support other's going down for something he might be guilty of. Not saying that's whats going on with Lenlo's support of... beerface. That's just the vibe I got from that co-worker.... Specially when said co-worker would declare things like
