Re: One-Post Politics

That's grand! Good find Steve! I think if I really tried I could find some all the way back to ancient Greece or on papyrus from Egypt, it's the old, "good old days" trope wrapped up in weasel words, "why when I was young we worked sun up to sun down without a break, with the boss wh...

Funny that, with the EU being the only region where X can still be reported for spreading political misinformation, it's almost as if, you know, the threat of severe penalties as part of regulating social media content actually works!

Re: Abortion in the US

“The purpose of these laws is not to meaningfully enforce them,” said Neesha Davé, executive director of the Lilith Fund, an abortion fund based in Texas. “It’s the fear that’s the point.

Re: One-Post Politics

Re: Donald Trump

I feel very meh about these polls. And so you should, it's likely outliers like this aren't adjusted for bias, the source of the poll was a phone poll, all phone polls in the US are done using home phone lines, most young people, and when I say young it's probably under 50's by this time as far as ...

Re: Donald Trump

Interesting video showing some interesting trends in the US, basically polling be damned, special elections tell an entirely different story. It shows an overall 11 point lean towards Democrats basically nationwide, nearly everyone hates MAGA.

Re: Interesting/Notable/Weird news that doesn't need it's own thread

The moment you should realise you are on the wrong side! Days after neo-Nazis clashed violently with anti-fascists in the Melbourne suburb of Thornbury, they were out again — this time in a disturbing show of support for the No campaign against the Voice to Parliament.
