Yes. The US is far superior with libel and slander laws.

Since you wrote it, you know that their libel/defamation laws are quite different, and since you have been on Usenet since the '90s, you no doubt have encountered British posters demanding retractions from other Brits and threatening to report them.

Very creepy. I don't know nuthin about englistanian law.

It's total BS.
 
We had a round of that in my local county politics, it's one of the reasons I am estranged from my county party. One of the leaders would report people he disagreed to their employers if they posted opinions using their work emails (which a lot of people dumbly used to do). He thought he was doing it anonymously but he was so clumsy it was easily traced back to him, especially if the person being reported is friends with the IT people who deal with these complaints. With some searching on the "anonymous" email he used I ended up getting some separate dirt on him and let him know I had it and that if he did that kind of thing again I would reveal it publicly. That stopped it but the assholes in charge of the party who were his buds never forgave me for taking that tool from their toolbox.

Surprised this doesn't happen more -- and, remember, the only thing about free speech is the government, nothing to do with private organizations.

Duke of Cambridge, second in line to succeed his grandmother,
is a helicopter pilot.
First with the RAF search and rescue force;
now a civilian pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

You prompted me to look this up:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Succession_to_the_British_throne#Current_line_of_succession
 
And scroll to the bottom of the list, to number 56,
 
And think about King Zenouska I.
 
That would be awesome.

But would he still fly if/when he ascends?

We already have slavery. It was signed into law by
president Lyndon Johnson. It is called the
Economic Opportunity Act. He called the war on poverty.
Poverty won.

Your alternative is to halve the population.
 
Basically, what you are saying is that we should've left them to starve in the 30's or 60's and limited the damage.

Sheesh, what do you want? A direct quote from the guy who gave him compressions? Well, OK:

oh yeah cats can get rabies. If a kid gets bitten by a stray feral cat in the woods somewhere and they cant find it he will need a rabies series.

The only mammal that doesn't get rabies is possums. Because their body temperature is too low to sustain the virus.

Perfectly okay with either

except to get a burger, fries and drink there it costs like 13 dollars......no thanks.

Legit point, mia - you'll pay a lot more for five guys. And they really don't have a fries size that makes sense for one person.
 
Cheers.

and you can't go(even if I get a diet coke) and stay under 2000 calories or so.....my doctor said Im only supposed to eat 2000 calories a day. If I go to five guys, thats my only meal for the day. Cant have that.

More than what? More than McD's or BK? Sure. Smashburger or Red Robin? 5 Guys is way under those. It's true about the fries. But you can get the smaller burger and with or without cheese and cut down the calories.

You're paying for all those Washingtonian "DC restaurant of the year" clippings they have proudly framed on their walls.

So your proof that voting fraud is widespread is some guy talking about ways to commit voter fraud?
 
I think you're making the point - unicorns.
 
Not that it matters - y'all could be completely transparent and just say "we want to make it as difficult as possible for (D) lever pullers to pull the lever". Your troops are already neck deep in any means necessary mentality. Why bother with the laughable bs facade?
 
Cheers.

we want to make it as difficult as possible for felons(why we actively fight legislation reinstating rights for these to vote as they can eventually in most states) and certain other types of people to vote as possible. If they just so happen to be majority democrats, well........
dotslashderek@gmail.com: May 18 10:35AM -0700

You're the freakin unicorn, mia - a republican who tells it like it is - and I love ya for it.
 
"Certain other types of people". Truth.

I can appreciate your comparing the Trump presidency to the lives of the Kardashians, Thanks for that perspective-- it helps.
