Frankly I'm more concerned that WE would use nuclear weapons first.
I'm waiting for the "nuke in the Pacific test" by them. Possibly this week to coincide with their celebration day on the 10th. Looks like they're getting ready for something.. http://mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKCN1C502V

I remember seeing a discussion somewhere else a while back talking about how they always seemed to do these tests and whatnot around holidays, and somebody was like, "How many freaking holidays does North Korea have?"

I guess your governor figures if he stays nice he'll get more help? I'm kind of glad SJ mayor finally got real. Maybe the gov didn't want a flurry of nasty drumph tweets?
As for your final comment .... heh. I'm sympatico

How r u and your dad?

the timing of this shooting in vegas could hardly be worse for the people of puerto rico. they need the media attention badly to keep the pressure on getting them the help they need and it's going to be all on nevada for the foreseeable future.

Yeah, that did cross my mind today.

I think our governor (NYS) waived tuition fees for State or NYC city universities & colleges for PR students relocating here.

On days like today I'm reminded by how much of a piece of everliving fucking shit Alex Jones is; FUCK this boy and his followers. Fuck them all, I can't deal with these assholes anymore. It's all a virus.

Great advice, except normal libertarians and conservatives are paying him attention.

The Orangeropas and Ironhorses weren't paying him any attention 4 years ago, now what's your advice?

That was your advice with The Con, look where that got us. At some point ignoring the issue becomes the issue.

The United States is one of just 13 countries to have voted against a United Nations resolution condemning thedeath penaltyfor having gay sex.

Although the vote passed, America joined countries such asChina, Iraq and Saudi Arabia in opposing the move.

The Human Rights Council resolution condemned the “imposition of the death penalty as a sanction for specific forms of conduct, such as apostasy, blasphemy,adulteryand consensual same-sex relations”.
I can't even...

I'd like to see any sort of reason given for that ... like, is there some "pork belly" (is that the right terms), like where people vote against a Great-On-The-Surface bill because it has some dumbass addendum on it?

like, was this "Condemn the Death Penalty for Gay Sex, and Also Every Country Should Give Trump $100"?

According to this article the US government took objection to this:

Quote:
5. Urges States that have not yet abolished the death penalty to ensure that the death penalty is not applied against persons with mental or intellectual disabilities and persons below 18 years of age at the time of the commis sion of the crime, as well as pregnant women;
Source: http://ilga.org/downloads/HRC36_reso...th_penalty.pdf

Or it was persuaded by Saudi Arabia.

Am I reading that correctly, that the reason was because they didn't want to have to stop executing people with mental or intellectual disabilities, etc?

Because that doesn't make me feel any better.

I'm not surprised though, considering the death penalty is still legal in 32 states.

Not very smart, that would have kept Trump alive when found guilty of treason.

That was my advice then and that's absolutely not what people did at all in any way shape or form.

These people are legitimized in the early stages when you fight back.

I've ignored Jones for years, and I even work in Austin, but now he has WH press credentials. He wasn't legitimized by me.

Ignore it, sweep under the rug, call it "fake news" or "glorified hyperbole". Do you know who's following your advice on things they don't agree with?

Rep. Tim Murphy, a vocally anti-abortion congressman from Pennsylvania, asked his own girlfriend to terminate a pregnancy this year.

According to documents obtained by the Post-Gazette, Shannon Edwards—a Pittsburgh woman exactly half Murphy’s age with whom he recently admitted to having an extramarital affair—texted Murphy in January about a possible pregnancy that turned out to be just a scare. “You have zero issue posting your pro-life stance all over the place when you had no issue asking me to abort our unborn child just last week when we thought that was one of the options,” she said, referring to a post from Murphy’s professional Facebook account that accused America of “discarding and disregarding the most vulnerable” for allowing abortions past 20 weeks’ gestation.

“I get what you say about my March for life messages,” Murphy responded. “I’ve never written them. Staff does them. I read them and winced. I told staff don't write any more. I will.”
This “pro-life” Congressman was caught telling his extramarital boo to get an abortion.

Abortion
Extra-marrital affair
half his age

It's like he was working off a list of "moral values I can contradict in one act".
