    But would he?

    My gut feeling is that he targets organised crime much more than political extremists...and if he did target them it would only be because they used his “symbol”, rather than being...

    Usual wonderful performance from the sisters. And what a genius Stephen Foster was, though no doubt many of his original lyrics would cause...

    Thanks, that was an interesting read...that (comparing Biden vote with Democrat votes in other recent elections) is a clever way to estimate voter defection.

    You’ve persuaded me that switch votes...

    Surely apart from his age Joe was almost the perfect candidate? (Defining “perfect” in this case as most likely to win.)

    I think scary thought is that the Donald might have won without...

    Hope they operate to a higher standard of proof than an anonymous tip off.

    Couldn’t it be argued that going after proud boys would actually be a substantially escalation of what he typically does now??

    He typically now goes after major league criminal activity...the sort...

    Superman Secret Identity by Kurt Busiek

    Thought there was at least 2 enormous plot holes, among other “issues”...regard it as an okay story but never really understood why so many people really...
  10. What does “unity” mean specifically in this case?...

    What does “unity” mean specifically in this case?

    As a long term union member, I always regarded the only way you can demonstrate real unity is by accepting the results of a democratic vote, and...
  11. I’d argue that it depends what you mean by...

    I’d argue that it depends what you mean by “productive”. If you mean likely to change Mets in a fundamental way...then it’s unlikely to happen. (But let me be fair..I think most of us rarely change...

    Agree. But I actually think the rioters themselves are the wrong targets...

    The Donald himself has done a series of things in recent months that any sane person would realise would cause death and...

    This is surely an easily predictable consequence of the Donald’s contempt for the electoral process.

    And just as easy to predict that his holding a rally will spread the virus and ruin the health...

    I wonder if some one did equivalent in UK he’d be facing a heavy fine under the COVID regs (people who organise large parties can be fined up to 10000 quid.)

    Certainly what he is doing is...

    Must admit I'd not considered that...I can easily understand judges decision if he felt there's any chance of that.

    He’s not one of the “burning issues” of the day...COVID has put practically everything else in the shade, and Brexit also constantly attracting attention.

    But think most people would like him out...

    See a British judge has ruled that Julian Assange cannot be extradited to US because he might commit suicide in in US jail...that strikes me as a strange argument, because that must be true every...

    I don’t think it will...always thought extent of personal support for Trump has been massively over-stated.

    But maybe I feel that way because that’s the way UK politics work...large majority vote...

    Once when I was young and idealistic I would have been fine with the tax at that level too.

    Now..If it came to a referendum..I would vote against it, I suspect. (I might conceivably support if...

    I hope he doesn’t think that.

    But I think few of us here are by “international standards” (opposed to American standards) left wing.

    Let me give just a few examples of that...you rarely seen...

    “Sailing off to the Yankee Land” Antje Duvekot

    They are many wonderful versions of this emigration song...Karan Casey sings it superbly for example...but Antje’s is one I listen to often.

    Obviously, some governments (maybe many?) will have deliberately under-stated numbers of deaths.

    But also, even for those that are honestly striving to give true reports there are a few different...

    I expected this to be a cover of the Hayes/ Robinson song, thought “won’t be as good as Paul Robeson version”...but soon discovered it’s a completely different song, very...
