Many US cities and towns are massively overfunding their police forces. I'll post stats later, but when you look at some of them, the city or town budget is basically a police force that does some other incidental stuff.

Spend elsewhere to keep the populace happy, housed and fed, and you have less need for the police force. Take money away from police (defund them) and if you spend it in the right places elsewhere, you won't notice the defunding.

Example; Uvalde. 40% of the budget on police, and look where it got them ...

Yes, as it turns out, people who say "defund the police" are universally people who are at the wrong end of the law.

Well that's completely untrue.  Defund the police as a slogan came from people who were fed up with excessive violence propagated by the police.  That's not being on the wrong end of the law, it's being in the out-group police neither serve nor protect.

This. It came on the back of the killing of George Floyd, the cover-up surrounding the Amhoud Arbery killing, and a whole host of other instances where police over-escalation and violence led to injury or death for innocent parties.

The homeless guy in the wheelchair who lost an eye from a baton round, the journalists who similarly suffered.

The elderly pushed over onto concrete, then ignored by Buffalo police.

The innocent cyclist crossing the road who was picked on by NY police because he happened to be passing by.

We just saw 238,000? miles with naked eye, beetchez

Dunno about you, but I just watched a video. Does the term SFX hold any meaning for you?

Is it no longer possible for governments to be tyrannical?

It is, and probably will be if the Repugnicans get control.

Tom, you don't find any .... contradiction, say, between the FRC's mission statement and vision?

Vision Statement:
Family Research Council's vision is a prevailing culture in which all human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives.
 
Mission of Organization:
Family Research Council's mission is to advance faith, family, and freedom in public policy and the culture from a biblical worldview.

Yes, the tweet clearly states that it is at the 571 (517 according to the above, not 571 - T) mark. The graph shows that his popularity has been dropping to the point that he is now the most unpopular president at this point in his presidency in recorded US History.

His net approval has been higher than Trump's for around 490 days out of those 517, though. So on balance, he has greater approval than Trump.

Although this is clearly biased, a more detailed timeline is here, with the video in bold:

WHY is it "clearly biased" ?


So Trump waited around to tell the protestors to leave, but Joe Biden didn't wait around to call for it to end?

Which one of them was Commander-in-Chief at the time, and which was not? Biden was merely President-elect at the time, wasn't he? Who was the actual President?

the Republicans are focused on the threat from drag queens.

In the UK, we've had drag acts on stage and on TV for decades, without society collapsing in a heap.

Every year, theatres up and down the country stage Christmas pantomime, which routinely includes at least one male performer in drag as the "pantomime dame".

Danny La Rue, Stanley Baxter, Dick Emery, Les Dawson and a host of others were regulars on prime-time Saturday night TV, often appearing in drag.

Harmless fun.

He didn't stop them.

When they entered the building he told them to go home:

Oh, puh-leeze.

You don't think everyone can examine the timeline of when the rioters were breaking in, and when Trump spoke? Really?

Trump must've been riding in the front seat to pull off this one.

There's video. He wasn't.

The hearsay is being confirmed by multiple sources within Secret Service, by footage of Trump in the vehicle.

He could have got out and walked there by himself, couldn't he? Oh, no, I forgot; he can't walk that far, and needs a golf cart to get around.

And like I said earlier, if the facts are in dispute, he can volunteer to testify, under oath, to set the record straight, can't he?

The topic is abortion, not miscarriage.

Do you think those in the state legislatures can reliably tell the difference? Have they all accounted for it in their lawmaking?

That is still hearsay.

If Trump disputes it, he can volunteer his testimony, can't he?

Step up, take the oath, and tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

What's stopping him? Why does he only spout off on social media? Why won't he stand up for himself under oath?

Why are you perpetuating hearsay and a story that has been flatly denied by senior officials with the Secret Service?

Has it been denied by someone under oath? For the lady who delivered this to the J6 committee was under oath. Are you accusing her of perjury?

There's footage which allegedly shows Trump, in the vehicle, lunging toward the front seats of the vehicle, which would appear to corroborate her account. It's on twitter somewhere, saw it this morning, will post a link soon.

Also, Trump's pushback followed the same self-contradictory pattern as many statements in the past - "I barely knew her" / "had hardly heard of here", but two paragraphs later - "I instructed her personally to...."

I'm curious - how many of y'all which have commented in this thread have children of your own?

I don't, and I'm not in the USA.

People that think such thoughts should be neutered or spayed.

I said to my wife "Do you think anyone will commit suicide because they could not get an abortion?" She instantly replied "yes." Then she added "there will also be all those boyfriends and husbands that murder them because they couldn't get one too" and that shook my fucking world.

Abortion for *lethal* fetal anomalies is now *illegal* in Ohio. I’m a high-risk obstetrician here. I diagnose birth defects. So at some point soon I may look someone in the eyes & say that they, against their will, will carry to term, undergo delivery & then have their child die

At 29 years old, we found we were expecting our second child in TX. It was a surprise, but a welcome one. At 17 weeks, we found this child had no kidney, no liver, no legs, but still a heartbeat. I was referred to a clinic 2 hours away. I was told "This will be out of pocket". I was told "The insurance will cover it IF YOU WAIT FOR THE HEARTBEAT TO STOP". I was told "It's not 20 weeks old so it's not a real person". I was told a lot of things. Finally, I was told to say goodbye and move on. I was one of the fortunate ones. Women need real helathcare. Abortion is a right. Period.
