  1. Jury Duty

    During the trial, no, but I believe it is legal after. I could be wrong.
  2. US Politics: Spicey Onion Indigestion in the Age of Trump

    I'm reluctant to empower those whose purpose is to harm others, to select the name they are known by.
  3. US Politics: Spicey Onion Indigestion in the Age of Trump

    I wish we would stop normalizing and legitimatizing them. Call them Fascists or Nazis, or even add the prefix, "neo." if you're uncomfortable in being so blunt "Alt-right" was invented by them to disguise what they are.
  4. US Politics: Spicey Onion Indigestion in the Age of Trump

    Trump couldn't negotiate his way out of the bathroom. He has no respect for democracy, the country, its people (except for straight, white, wealthy men). I live for the day he is physically dragged out of the White House. [VENTING_MODE_OFF]
  5. LBGTQ - 4 out of 5 cats prefer lesbians

    I could take that two ways, but I fear it isn't the good one. People...sheesh!
  6. LBGTQ - 4 out of 5 cats prefer lesbians

    I wish more parents would feel that way. The only thing that worries me is the effect of going public in a world that is tilting increasingly to the right. I look at her picture and realize that without that publicity, she had the opportunity to blend in with society and never be subject to the crap that floats around society, these days.
  7. LBGTQ - 4 out of 5 cats prefer lesbians

    As surprising as it may seem, I think the environment today is survivable, so I'd like to provide WF with some encouragement. My belief in personal safety is from the perspective of someone who has already transitioned (next week will be 40 years). I know how I felt when I thought it might be impossible for me to transition, so I'm hoping there may be a way to help her avoid what that feels like.

  9. US Politics: There's No Morning After Pill

    @Zorral For the love of God, why does anyone listen to that deranged woman?
  10. LBGTQ - 4 out of 5 cats prefer lesbians

    I think the important thing is what the reason for your regret is. If you feel it is just not something that will work for you, I'll accept and respect that, with no question. If you feel that the current social/political climate makes it too dangerous, I might have some useful input.
  11. US Politics - or: How I Learned to Love the Atomic Don

    I have to admit that I have some bias. In the mid to late 60s, I was on the faculty of the Army Intelligence School, which at that time, was at Ft. Holabird, MD and later moved to Ft. Huachuca, AZ, where Manning received her training. I feel a sense of betrayal that someone who took the same oath I did, violated it. My first training in the intelligence field was counterintelligence, so I have always had the mindset that safeguarding intelligence information is paramount. The lawyers will probably tell me I'm full of crap, but Assange was actively soliciting information he knew was not the property of those who provided it to him. I see him as an accessory to a theft that occurred in the US, even though he did not set foot in it. We live in the digital age, where one can commit a crime in a country, even though one is not physically in that country.
  12. US Politics - or: How I Learned to Love the Atomic Don

    I understand what you've said. I resolved the conflict I felt in this manner. If the army hadn't subjected her to excessive solitary confinement and confinement in an all male facility, I would have no problem with her serving her entire sentence. Adding to this, the army's meting out additional punishment for her attempt to end her life, provided me with a clue of what they intended. For those reasons, I have no problem with the sentence commutation. As far as Snowden is concerned, I don't think the mantle of "whistle blower" sits easily on him. I don't think he wound up in Russia by accident. The claim that he was trying to get to South America is a smokescreen. Assange is nothing but a trafficker in stolen property. His latest activities indicate he is allied with Putin. I'd have no problem with lengthy incarceration for Snowden and Assange.

    YYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And, BTW, that's the way it's supposed to feel.
  14. LBGTQ - 4 out of 5 cats prefer lesbians

    It's a complex issue. The out and proud side believes visibility, education and such will lead to greater acceptance and that there is strength in numbers. The stealth side basically says that if people do not know you are different from them, acceptance is greater and that being perceived as just another human being, rather than someone who is different. There is some unavoidable friction between the sides.
  15. Facebook Is Watching

    Theda, I thought about that, but I originally had two show up. The one with no mutual friends, I was able to block, but the one with, I still can't block. I've heard nothing from Facebook about my inquiry as to why I couldn't block that one.
