    Oh, as if lawmakers legislating about things they know nothing about is a new phenomenon . . .

    Well, he didn't need grandkids just yet.

    Especially not with that many genetic markers in common.

    What would be some other examples of times when lawmakers legislated about things that they didn't understand the nuts and bolts of in the same way as how periods work? Obviously lawmakers have ideological blinders on and some things are new technology, but for the most part they have a basic enough understanding of what the subject is, even if they apply an incorrect or insufficient solution to the issue they are addressing.

    It's probably a reference to how not every lawmaker spends enough time masturbating over gun catalogs to know the differences between a rifle that can mow down 30 fourth-graders per minute and a rifle that can only mow down 20.

    Well you see they're not libertarian, therefore don't understand reality.

    I'm shocked that literal Nazis want to ban abortions. @Paladin is not, however.

    Paladin has left the board, I'm sure the timing is coincidental.

    Yep, it’s true. The quest to make Wordforge a leftist echo chamber continues apace.

    Honestly, it's better than the Nazi rightwing echo chamber from years past.

    Good riddance to bad, sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, white nationalist rubbish. I am pretty sure we could get a simple russian bot to replace that cunt if you really want.

    I think if you can't answer that Joe Biden won the election fairly despite every single legitimate source of info saying he did, including 45's own Attorney General, the question is whether or not you are Pro-America and Pro-Democracy.

    If being pro-leftist means accepting democracy and truth, and opposing that means opposing those things, you should be asking yourself some very specific questions, don't you think?

    Listen, we all would love to see certain unalienable rights stripped from ever being subject to judicial review, but that assumes everyone is playing by the same rules.

    The Republicans in the judiciary and Congress have no shame when it comes to ignoring past laws and precedent. Just ask Justices Harriet Myers and Merrick Garland. The long term solution is to either 1) crush the political power of the far right or 2) ignore the Supreme Court and dissolve the union. You can’t reason with people who will stop at nothing until their “Christian” theocracy is established. So I think number two is most likely because number one involves a whole lot of dumb people waking up and smelling the roses.

    And if she deceives him into raising another man's child? Little or no consequences, often legal support for the fraud.

    If a man feels a child is not his, he can get a paternity test and take it to court. If a woman gets pregnant, there isn't a court in the country that can make her unpregnant.

    Courts will side with her if he has already been supporting the child. Happens all the time.

    Lots of "unfair" shit happens every day and you side with the one who receives the unfairness. Why not on this issue?
