    One of the reasons to restrict it is that there are conditions where it does actually work & people who do need it for proven clinical reasons. Lupus is one condition I know uses it, if those folk...

    Anyone care to give odds that Trump or one of his surrogates goes after Biden's dead wife and/or children before this is done? Not like we are dealing with people who have a shred of morality or...

    Most of them also seem to fall over themselves to find an excuse every time an unarmed man or woman of colour is killed by police. It would be comical if it weren't so tragic.

    During one of the...

    I'm looking forward to DE quoting Dr Nick from the Simpsons. He's a doctor....sort of. About as credible as the AAPS and more entertaining.

    There has been a decades long campaign from parts of the GOP & its supporters (and funders) to undermine trust in government & public institutions. It goes beyond the usual corruption/ineptitude that...

    As TH has pointed out, if Trump does not win the election he is gone. Staging a coup is not as easy as it sounds. While the President is the C in C of the military, those officers, men & women are...

    Hands up ANYONE who ever thought they would see a co-founder of the Federalist Society talking like that. Not sure it will make much difference in the broader scheme of things, but it is a reminder...

    It was about as obvious as an obvious thing gets. As with every other reaction he has had to this crisis, it is always about him first & foremost.

    From my observation on other chat sites, the very same people screaming FASCISM at any hint of a COVID related restriction are the ones most loudly cheering Trump's goon squad as it rides roughshod...

    Yes, but they were mostly put up by the regime that he founded or adherents to Marxist/Leninist movements. Can't think of any put up by Tsarists or Whites. I also recall quite a few of those statues...

    I'm not sure how many of these examples are really apposite - of the ones I understand in any detail at least.

    Bose died before an independent Indian state came into being. If he was a traitor it...

    Well, it was the first time I found out how few of these monuments went up before 1900. My jaw has since adjusted, and reserves drops for Americans who either don't know about this or ignore it...

    Sadly Trump and his cult members have got what they wanted - forcing an honourable man out of the US Army. I've said it before - there is no 'bottom' here. There is nothing so disgusting or...

    Consider posting it in sections. The link leads me to 'can't find this page', and most WashPo content is paywalled anyway.

    If you believe Australia's defence budget is going to increase 40% in the next 10 years you are even dumber than I think. Spending is going to sit pretty much on 2% of GDP for that entire time. Our...
