Re: Most extreme abortion law in US takes effect in Texas

Zebras too. Not just carnivores. But the ,ares try to stop him.

Without entering the "abortion is murder/abortion is like cutting a fingernail" fruitless debate, I'll just say that IF abortion is legal, surely it is the woman's choice, not her mate's. And especially if the child is not his.

Re: Backdoor talks with China, treason?

US Democratic Party support for its New Deal roots is only lip service. Both major parties are servants of the super-rich. They use different rhetoric to enrage their respective bases. "woke" shit, vaccine passports, and black racism for the (D)'s. 19th Century economics, whacko religion, ...
