    99.999999999999% of the people have no problem with a woman that's been raped having an abortion, or if her life is in danger.

    I have yet to see your outrage about all the killings done in Syria and other Arab countries, done by Muslims against Muslims and non-Muslims!

    Re: Saudis paying for US troop deployment. Peachy. Since when are our armed forces mercenaries for hire? How much are they paying per US life lost?

    Yet when the republicans had control of the House, Senate and Presidency at the same, they did not correct these issues. Guess it wasn't that important to them.

    Re: social security for immigrants:
    https://www.investopedia.com/articl...ants-over-65-and-social-security-benefits.asp

    “While individuals don’t necessarily have to be U.S. citizens to qualify for U.S. Social Security benefits, they must have paid into the system for at least 10 years, or they must have accumulated enough credits between the U.S.'s system and that of a foreign country with whom the U.S. has a totalization agreement.” (And this is checked against the other country’s records.)

    Totalization gives people credit for their work history in both countries while preventing “double dipping.” We have a totalization agreement with a number of countries, mostly European countries, including Portugal.

    Actually, less than 10% of scientists at the time thought that:

    "A survey of the scientific literature has found that between 1965 and 1979, 44 scientific papers predicted warming, 20 were neutral and just 7 predicted cooling. So while predictions of cooling got more media attention, the majority of scientists were predicting warming even then."

    Even then, the majority predicted warming, 40 years later, we have even more data.

    ---------------------
    Karen got raped and wants to have an abortion, mr-x says no, he says "I'm pro-freedom"

    Becky wants to marry Jennifer, mr-x says no you guys can't get married because "I'm pro-freedom"

    In his head these statements make sense.

    Akshully: that didn't stop the media from lying about it; or lying about a 99% consensus climate change is man made.

    JB is OK with murdering an innocent human who hasn't hurt anyone or even asked to be born.

    JB's a liar and a troll.

    Those are your beliefs dummy, so how can I be lying about them.

    Media lying about it? They made a show about cooling, it gets ratings. Again, less than 10%. So scientists have actually been pretty consistent with warming. I understand you want to focus on the less than 10%.

    "The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is extremely likely (greater than 95 percent probability) to be the result of human activity since the mid-20th century and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented over decades to millennia."

    A clump of human cells is not a human being.
    “Freedom of religion” means you’re free to practice your own religion yourself, not force your beliefs on everyone else. Because that would be kind of Taliban-ish.

    Uh-oh. Better look in that mirror. Unless you are of another species, you are also a clump of human cells. Maybe you would care to specify the exact line where one becomes human. Good luck.

    Exactly. Now who is doing the forcing? The men and women with guns or the religion that is completely voluntary? The only one forcing things is the government. Religious people simply want to be left free to practice their religion. The left seems to believe in an imaginary Christian Taliban that will overturn their way of life. They produce a handful of nutters to support this fantasy. (I am sure I can come up wit people who believe they are Santa Claus as well.) Meanwhile, they don't care about real Taliban-like groups (unless it's a way to feed their frothing hate of all things Trump, which overrides all other beliefs).

    To recap, the “whistleblower”:

    *is a Democrat
    *worked with Biden
    *worked with two of Schiff’s staffers
    *coordinated his complaint with Schiff’s team
    *hired a Hillary/Schumer lawyer who also donated to Biden

    How could this be any more partisan than it already is?
