    What's that got to do with feminist anything? You just lost me.

    Working class people move all the time. Not as much as they used to, but frequently. And there's always the trick of moving somewhere where there are few jobs and then collecting benefits.

    Which is it? Decriminalized, "quazi-legal", or a misdemeanor?

    Do I have to name names,too?
    Like tRump's "beautiful insurance for all Americans...and the government will pay for it"?

    Extremist anything is just the idea that “I’ve tried persuasion and it didn’t work so now I have to utterly crush people’s lives to make them understand”.

    It’s not extremist to want to build a pipeline, it’s not extremist to not want to build a pipeline. It’s extremist to kick open someone’s door, throw them out, bulldoze their home to lay your pipeline. It’s extremist to blow up a pipeline.

    It’s not extremist to oppose abortion. It’s not extremist to support abortion. It’s extremist to prevent another person from having one. It’s extremist to force another person to get one they dont want.

    The question is what is an extreme leftist?

    Answer is a communist.

    Democrat / Liberal towns America and Canada including Toronto have these outdoor smoking bans in whole cities - public parks, outdoor patios, apartment pool areas, outdoor lounges.


    But these same Democrat / Liberal fascists that have these outdoor smoking bans allow people to have vaping pipes lit, legal marijuna - which each joint causes 5x more lung damage than cigs.


    Is this America or Italy run by Mussolini ?

    Maybe he didn't but we are supposed to be talking about extreme left here and a 50% tax on the rich is far from extreme. We had tax rates far above 50% for 20-30 yrs and we were not operating on "extreme" left policies.

    As usual, you do not know what you are talking about. California has instituted laws making it illegal for employers to use Everify except in a limited amount of cases, and the whole state is a sanctuary state, making it a crime to cooperate with Federal immigration law.

    Seriously, you should do your homework before spouting off.
    You are probably lying but even if they have laws making it illegal to use everify that does not equate to endorsing or practicing "unrestricted illegal immigration", not by a long shot. And immigration is the job of the federal govt not the state, I think they have more important crimes to worry about and don't blame them for saying they aren't using funds to go after illegals.

    If they practice unrestricted illegal immigration how come there are so many crossing the border in Arizona? How come they don't all just cross into California?

    I'm sure there are those who play the system like you describe here but they are damn few. Most unemployed want to work

    yes a joint may be 5x worse than a cigarette for your lungs but nobody smokes 20-30 a day in this day and age you can take 2 hits off that joint and you are done. And vaping pipes aren't lit and don't contain any of the tars that foul your lungs.
    Thanks from Babba
