Strange that whites who are thought by the left to be racists, are making laws where they will increase the darker colors of their populations, while decreasing over time, the white taxpayers who will support the darker change.

A strange thing to do to ones socio economic demographic pyramid.

The Democrats had several times in modern history the majority in the House and Senate. Stupid question from a foreigner: Why didn't they use that opportunity to create a federal abortion law?

Quote from: Tom62 on June 28, 2022, 05:41:06 AMI find the idea that the Supreme Court would ban contraception ridiculously paranoid. Even the most conservative spokesmen on social media (like Matt Walsh and Ben Shapiro) think that if you don't want to get pregnant then you should use contraceptives.

The US Supreme Court needn't ban contraception, and likely will not. As we see with abortion, all it needs to do is withdraw federal protection of the right to access to contraception and leave it to the regressive governments in states to ban it. Justice Thomas specifically referred to the ruling that recognized the right of access to contraceptives as one that the Christian zealot right wing justices would want to "reconsider."

Common, no one would stop you to buy a lifetime supply of condoms at Amazon or elsewhere.

A lot of spacecraft structures are graphite fiber reinforced plastic. It's a woven sheet that is laid up into tubes and sheets. Stealth aircraft use a similar process for their structures. Probably not what you meant, though.

this football  prayer thing is exactly what separation of church and state was supposed to prevent.

he was not engaging in private exercise on the 50 yard line, he was making a prideful public display.

we get christian prayers all the time here at public events in appalachia, generally invoking jesus. but there are hindus, muslims, jews, and atheists in the schools who are expected to participate. not many, but somr
