  1. Just wondering if anybody sees an underlying issue with this ad? There's nothing inherently wrong with the product she's pushing, but there very well may be for the people who buy it for its intended purpose. Why would you even assume an infant will grow up to have gender issues? I just get the feeling that someone who buys this stuff is going to be slightly disappointed if their kids don't question their own identity. Im not saying there wont be trannies and what not, but why would you potentially create a question in kids' minds? Honestly, they all look like boys clothes anyway, but i think the goal of this is for society not to know the sex of your child. Fine, but why? Oddly enough, it turns out the vast majority of people don't have issues of this nature. I don't think the clothes are going to influence the kids, but I'm quite suspect of the parents. (Sorry, i didnt want to start a new thread)
  2. Its been all over the internet for some time now, but we're just waiting on CNN to verify this story. Of course, if they never print this, it's fake. Meanwhile... letter of complaint

    White House suspends Acosta's press pass!

    There's no evidence that the video was deliberately sped up — but the change in format, from a high-quality video to a low-quality GIF, turns the question of whether it was 'doctored' into a semantic debate. This video analysis by BuzzFeed News demonstrates what the GIF conversion process does to video. While it's not technically "sped up" by intent, it effectively is in practice. The video-to-GIF conversion removes frames from the source material by reducing the frame rate. The GIF-making tool GIF Brewery, for example, typically reduces source video to 10 frames per second. Raw, televised video typically has a frame rate of 29.97 frames per second.

    Shooting in CA targeted conservatives?

    The Public Religion Research Institute, interesting choice considering they have been known for misleading polls. I'm sure you'll point that out when its behooves you. Where is Woody on this one? Crickets....

    I have and it skews your statistics. To replicate I would need your exact criteria and then use it through the entirety of the archived data. I'll wait.

    Shooting in CA targeted conservatives?

    It's odd because it has 40+ years of archived data and you chose 2017 as your reference to history. I even said you may be right. Have you read this far? When did I bring up Nazis and the Klan? Btw I'm not religious, you seem to be making some blanket statements yourself.

    In depends on his search criteria on this site. He may be right. I just find it odd that it is 2017 data only.

    ANTIFA MOB CURRENTLY OUTSIDE HOME OF TUCKER CARLSON

    If I started pushing my way into Mexico, there is a legitimate chance I get shot. And most people would say "oh well dumba$$." He11, it wouldn't even make national news. The rational side of me understands that. It's an expected outcome from my experiences down there. I'm not sure what folks from up north think the Mexican border is like. In Nuevo Loredo there have been tanks there going back at least a decade, soldiers carrying automatic weapons. I nearly got arrested my first time crossing for taking canned foods with pork products in it. If I went 20 miles in without Mexican car insurance I would get arrested. I almost got arrested for speeding when I never even saw a sign with the speed on it. Had I not had $150 on me to pay the guy off who knows how long I would have stayed in their jail. Surely didn't cross my mind to throw a bottle at him. Whatever. It's about respect. They demand it from us and we should demand it from them. Do as we say or whatever happens to you, is on you. You get what you deserve, no matter what side of the border your on or the country you come from.

    ANTIFA MOB CURRENTLY OUTSIDE HOME OF TUCKER CARLSON

    Woody, there may be some truth to what you're saying, but if you think a group of people like this came from America and landed at the gates of some country, would be received differently, I think you'd be sadly mistaken. In fact, I'd bet, if some Americans got shot because of it, your first thought would be "You got what you deserved." And rightfully so, I would think. I can't speak for everyone, but I feel like I could for most when I say this has nothing to with race. If a caravan of Swedes were pushing their way through Mexico to get here, I'd honestly be even more annoyed.

    Exactly the same thing, good job.
  15. This is Canada, but..... https://www.dailywire.com/news/38105/transgender-woman-files-human-rights-complaints-amanda-prestigiacomo Transgender Woman Files Human Rights Complaints Against 16 Women For Refusing To Wax His Male Genitalia Sixteen Canadian women have had human rights complaints filed against them by a male-to-female transgender individual for alleged "gender identity" discrimination after they refused to wax his male genitalia. John Carpay, a lawyer and the president of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, is representing two of the women who are being targeted by the complainant, who is referred to only as "JY." In accordance with a Order from the BC Human Rights Tribunal, the transgender individual must be kept anonymous. "In recent months, JY approached 16 Vancouver-area female estheticians who only serve women, requesting a 'Brazilian' bikini wax on his groin area," revealed Carpay on Tuesday, adding, "In spite of the fact that JY is able to obtain a Manzilian in Vancouver, JY has filed 16 complaints against these women at the BC Human Rights Tribunal, claiming discrimination on the basis of 'gender identity.'" The female estheticians in question only serve women and do not offer so-called "Manzilians" — the male equivalent to a Brazilian wax. "The procedure for providing a man with a 'Manzilian' is quite different, using a different kind of wax and a different technique," noted the lawyer. Shelah Poyer, one of the women Carpay is defending against JY pro bono, is a single mother who works out of her home. According to the lawyer, JY said he was willing to withdraw his complaint against Poyer for $2,500. "If JY is demanding similar sums from the other 14 women, he stands to receive as much as $35,000 for dropping his human rights complaints," noted Carpay. The complaint against Poyer, however, was withdrawn without so much as a hearing after Carpay informed JY in September that he'd be challenging the complaint: In September of 2018, we informed JY of our intention to call expert evidence at Shelah Poyer’s upcoming hearing. A professional who provides men with Manzilian waxes would explain to the BC Human Rights Tribunal how this method differs from Brazilians provided to women. We also asked the Tribunal to reverse its order prohibiting the publication of JY’s name, in the interest of an open legal process. Once JY recognized that Shelah Poyer had legal representation and was going to put up a fight, he withdrew his complaint. No hearing took place. Carpay claims fighting the complaint through to a hearing can cost an esthetician upward of $20,000, thus noting how tempting it might be to pay off JY his requested amount — especially if these women do not have legal representation, which seems highly likely. "One of the women represented by the Justice Centre had approached, and had been turned down by 26 different lawyers and law firms. All of which cited lack of expertise in human rights proceedings, or fear of offending the transgender lobby, or both," he explained. Moreover, the Tribunal has refused to inform the 14 other women that theJustice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms would be willing to represent them against the complaint free of charge. "Without legal representation, it is likely that most or all of these 14 women are going to pay settlement money to JY, to escape the very stressful tribunal process," Carpay stressed.

    In Georgia they refer to that as voter suppression.

    Democrats take the house

    More investigation than legislation. Not the worst scenario possible. But Maxine Waters head of the finance committee makes me want to both laugh and cry.

    "Play in the single"? Haha. So you want to impose Sharia Law like Keith Ellison? If thats how it works, theres an awful lot of overlap between the two of you. Just saying. There are some clowns in the Republican party and Shea appears to be one of them. I'd rather democrats win, if this is what the republicans are offering.

  23. Jumped as in she illegally entered Honduras and assumed the identity of a national named Consuela Picadillo? Almost, certainly. How else could she improve her life?

    Caravan of illegals

    First of all, we do NOT have a reciprocating relationship at our border. Get caught 100 miles into Mexico without a visa or passport and see what happens to you. Hope you come from a rich family. Second there's infinite issues with people coming here illegally. The fact that you guys only choose to bring up race suggests it's the only issue you're equipped to argue. Imagine that, if I don't mow my yard every 2 weeks I get a note on my door saying they'll send a yard crew and bill me for it, but if I suggest the yard crew pay taxes on the money I was forced to pay them, I'm a racist. Yay, America!!

    Is the Hoggmonster relevant again?

    Whoa Whoa, we've found common ground. I completely agree with humans having a negative impact on climate in many respects. If thats the whole arguement I agree with 97% of scientists. Where we will diverge is whether humans are causing global warming. If every human on planet earth suddenly died 500 years ago, the planet would still be warming today. To what degree no one actually knows. We could argue the rate of change, but no one really has that data, as we've never observed a full cycle of Earth's climate to compare. Climatologist use a completely different discipline to imply this. Do you find it fair to compare observable science to implied science? To get data from a rock or ice core or tree rings and directly compare it to a modern means of actual temperature and carbon readings? See you're an engineer, you deal in absolutes. Earth scientists do not. Only in climate science will someone openly admit they don't fully understand the feedbacks of ocean heat transfer for example, but it's reached it's capacity. That their models work better when carbon sensitivity is closer to zero, but we're killing ourselves from CO2 emissions. Kind of like if you said you we're building something and didn't understand what every component did, but your sure it's going to work. I'm sorry that's just not good science. And I'm almost certain 97% of scientist don't agree about what you think they agree about. If you've actually looked at climate model data, you can recognize the flaws right away. Just for the record, impacting climate change and mmgw are two different things. Also, I'm not claiming everything Cal posts is more than mere speculation, but an article about 97% agreement among scientists means nothing either. I've posted legit studies from NASA modeling here before. It related to hindcasting. You responded by suggesting the inaccuracies were understandable because current forecasting is easier than hindcasting less known conditions. I disagree with that given you start with an implied data set, but if you believe that logically you must question the entire premise of climate modeling. But no, we're all idiots for not taking a big leap of faith into a giant spaghetti plot. That's not to say you're ultimately wrong, just that you're just as biased as the next guy. Facts be damned.
