In 100 years, I could imagine a society where young people are expected to find a gender identity in the same way as they find other aspects of themselves, and maybe their gender identity changes a few times over their lives. Imagining such a society doesn't bother me at all. I think it's totally workable ...
Sure but it's a lot simpler to go in the other direction: Instead of 86/whatever genders, just one.

Mafia Commission Trial

Quote
The Mafia Commission Trial (in full, United States v. Anthony Salerno, et al)[1] was a criminal trial in New York City, United States, that lasted from February 25, 1985, until November 19, 1986. Using evidence obtained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 11 organized crime figures, including the heads of New York's so-called "Five Families," were indicted by United States Attorney Rudolph Giuliani under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) on charges including extortion, labor racketeering, and murder. Eight of them were convicted under RICO, and most of them were sentenced to 100 years in prison on January 13, 1987, the maximum possible sentence under that law.

I am laughing my ass off at those clueless turds trying to picture him as a clown.
...

It's simply a tactic. Ridicule. Part of a weird effort to secure a new POTUS in the court of public opinion.

But the Kraken is now out. The SCOTUS has the Texas case. That does not necessarily mean that Trump will win the four states in question.

This is important because it represents a way forward out of what I described as "the shitshow". It DOES NOT ask the SC to decide the election for Trump.

A) The US right now is the joke of the entire world. They watch a classical insurrection take place here. The sort of thing people in many countries have tragically, lived through. The Texas case requires the four defective, suspect states votes to be redone in a logical and dignified manner. Should this happen, the US will be showing the world a sane way out, and we'll regain their respect. Even perhaps teach them something.

B) If the SC does not find for the Plaintiff, the stolen election stands. 70 million Americans will never forget it and the country will be divided as never before. It won't go away, and these people will essentially consider Trump a martyr. If the SC finds for the Plaintiff, the four states legislatures will produce their electors per the Constitution. Trump voters will accept that regardless of whether the result is for or against their wishes. The Democrat overlords will have no rationale basis to call their little BLM / Antifa thugs back into the streets. Not that it would matter if they did.

SUMMARY: The Texas lawsuit presents a rational and dignified way out of a sordid mess. And the whole world will be watching.

Oh, and the same thugs and cheats are going to try to steal the election of 1-5 for the two senators of Georgia. All equipment, ballot boxes, and procedures as used in the presidential election now remain in place in Georgia.

There should be a way to handle that, but I do not know, those seats may be successfully stolen.

I think I'll be offline a couple days. I'm a bit tired of the oppressive atmosphere.

even after a sex change operation (it only replaces genitals) the other muscles in arms and legs are still masculine. ...

Bet if you tried to restrict them to mens' sports they'd bitch.
And bitch they would. I guess those that approved for such participation are professionals and have their bases but, the fact that the makings of man's body was already in place, one signal genital doesn't alter the whole thing.

I know people would argue that some women are more muscular than men but in those cases are often due to genetic mutation or steroid enhanced muscle development. Science will always tell you, a man has 40+ percent of the body as muscles while a woman has just about 20-28 percent. This explains for the soft body nature of a woman and in sports, it'd often about the muscles.
Allowing transgender participation is just an introduction of bias and that isn't good for the spirit of a good sportsmanship.
Yes. Although there will always be exceptions; some women runners have very little body fat. I have know a couple that were very strong. But those exceptions should be the winners and rightfully so.

Are you ready to receive that schooling?

Absolutely. I'm not so sure you're ready yet to accept Trump's loss though. I assume this is the bargaining stage. I don't recall if depression comes before or after. Have you felt depressed at all lately?
For me, the prospect on 11-4 was and remains a six month shitshow, and yeah, that is depressing. But that is regardless of who emerges as POTUS. Any sane person would see that.

Here is your situation. The intense, heavy pushing of the narrative in the media that "Biden is Pres Elect", the media helping by banning conservative content, many other things now do not matter. At all.

You have a conservative leaning SCOTUS, at least 18 states presenting a plea to that body to solve a problem. The problem involves as Defendant, 4 status with Republican legislatures (but apparent Democratic control of critical election organization.)

So three bunches of "Republicans" are going to solve this between themselves.

I can guess how three bunches of Democrats would handle such a thing. About the next 24 hours is the timeframe to place your bets at those market odds of what was it? 10:1? You've been advised.

Texas requests the following in it's SCOTUS case. The real world implications of these short arguments may not be obvious. The decision as to what to do to comply with the SCOTUS ruling would be up to those states.

Likely the four states' congress would each pick electors; if they chose not to the US Congress would pick them.

Ted Cruz may argue this case. I wonder how strong a defense the defendants will make. They don't have to make a defense at all. A ruling for Texas doesn't take away the right of the state to choose it's electors, but requires the results of the dirty 11-3 voting process to not be used to pick them.

May be interesting to hear the arguments and rebuttals. Although the strength of the constitutional arguments in the plea are most important, some rebuttals are arguable. Expect the SC to rule 5-4 to grant the plea of the State of Texas. Really it should be 9-0.

The simplest outcome of this would be the Republican congress of the four states to each produce a set of Trump electors, and Trump becomes POTUS on 1-20. Other outcomes are possible that also lead to Trump winning, and of course SC could not find for Texas, or find for Texas in part. The defendant states could get deadlocked and toss the problem to the US House, where one would expect the full house vote to be pro-Trump. But if Pelosi stalled that, she could wind up POTUS, whether for a day, a week, whatever; until the SC required swift action. I think that's right.


PRAYER FOR RELIEF

ALINSKY'S RULES FOR RADICALS
RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”


Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)


But you need to strive harder, and practice more. Be sure the bitter, aggrieved tone is dominant in the argument. Also problematic is that Alinsky did not advocate random babbling on the Internet, but direct confrontation. So you are not even following the directives.

Wow, that's the shortest news article I've ever seen... something is off. And I can't find any more information, weird. Oh, BTW, 17 isn't half of the states, that would be 25. But it really depends on what those 17 states are, which the story doesn't mention.

It's nice to see you at least trying to understand what is actually going on. This link explains the merits of the case. Responses from the four states are due today at 3pm. IMHO this is a well formed set of arguments that the SCOTUS can act on.

No, that's certainly not how "IRS investigations work", when you are (although certainly not admitting it) talking about the weaponized, targeting of conservatives during the Obama regime, which is the time of the audit in question.

So are you pro weaponizing the IRS to target people of certain political inclinations?

Never mind, don't bother trying to dodge the issue.

Some breaking news out of today that I assume everyone has already seen: Hunter Biden, President-Elect Joe Bidens son, is under federal tax investigation relating to his international consulting / business dealings.

We're not really sure exactly how long this investigation has been ongoing, I've heard some reports that it's been open since 2018 but this is the first time the DOJ has said something to the Bidens'.

I'm not a legal expert, though I'm pretty sure that this case was probably open prior to the election. There was no leaks for this particular investigation, and I think if there was it would've been another attack avenue for the whole Hunter Biden corruption thing that the Trump campaign was trying to do.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/12/09/hunter-biden-under-federal-investigation-over-taxes.html

"Prior to the election" Yes, I've read that it was ongoing and certainly before 11-3.

Maybe it was six or twelve months earlier. But it was related to the cases where associates of his were convicted and he was not.

They're trying to maintain the dominance of Trump on the GOP and that's the only thing they're trying to do here.

Also convince people to give Trump money (that they think will help him win a second term but actually goes to pay off his debt).

Darn, I had not thought of that. I will send money!




I mean if you want to argue a point here then that's something. I'm really giving the Trump admin/campaign the benefit of the doubt when it comes to why they're doing all of this.

I don't think the admin thinks they'll be able to overturn the elections, and I don't think the intention of any of these lawsuits was to do that. They're trying to maintain the dominance of Trump on the GOP and that's the only thing they're trying to do here.

Can we agree on that? Or no?

No. You said they were "out of their minds," don't wimp out and try to find some reasonable middle ground. That's your point, no shifting the goalposts and trying to make it like you are some logical and reasonable thinker. You're trying to give them the "benefit of the doubt" when you call them "out of their minds?" You are making things up.

'Fraid I'm laughing at this.

Let's put like this. I'd love to tell you "you were out of your mind" and have you say "Yes, I was." I expect you to say, in this circumstance "blah blah BLAH."

I do not think you are honest enough to say "Yes, I was", but let's see what poker hand is delt next.

no. hospitals wont send patients a bill.
hospitals charge the government/insurance company.
insurance companies do allow for vaccines for free

Yeah that's not how it works in the US. Hospitals (if someone is unlucky enough to get the vaccine in a hospital) will definitely send massive bills for everything except perhaps the vaccine itself, so $10k - $10 = $9990 billed to the patient. Pharmacies that usually do vaccines for flu etc often subsidize those as loss leaders... not sure if that's going to work for COVID-19 though.

Insurance companies don't "allow" shit. If by some miracle they make it "free" it will be rolled into next year's premiums....

Some things Franky should really shut up on. This is why the US cannot succeed with socialized medicine, the established power structures would bleed people dry. It'd be 120% for them not for the people.

Regardless, what Trump said was the vaccine would be free, but when I saw the list of operations that would be dispensing it, like CVS and Walgreens, it's hard to believe that. Maybe if you present an insurance card, then it's 0 copay. Maybe. But a lot of people are never, every going to pay 35 or 50$ or any sum for this flu shot.
