    The Rise of the Crisis Actor Conspiracy Movement

    Women challenging the #MeToo movement

    Hearing a lot more of this lately. Thoughts? "I am concerned that we are throwing knee-touching into the same basket as rape, which does a grievous disservice to mere knee-touchers and rape victims both. I am concerned that we are increasingly wont to confuse genuine abuse of power in the...

    Downside of the #MeToo movement

    Found this interesting as recently I heard a male coworker say that maybe we should just stop hiring so many females if they make the workplace difficult. Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg warned Sunday morning about the potential for women to wind up on the losing end of what seems like a...

    Brexit talks hit a wall as Ireland takes stand over freedom of movement on island

    As they should. They've been through far too much pain at British hands over the course of their history to tolerate a controlled border newly reimposed by London on their island. Yet Theresa May, whose entire government depends on the support of unionist, ultra-right kooks after her disastrous...

    Are we botching the #Metoo movement?

    Interesting article. What are your thoughts? The New York Times’ October 5th bombshell on Harvey Weinstein’s myriad sexually predatory offenses set off a cultural chain reaction that feels truly important or scary or both, depending on who you ask. Women in Hollywood stood up and shared...

    Spain's King Felipe condemns Catalonia independence movement

    Pretty profound, as in Spain, while the monarchy has broad powers, in practice its members don't comment on day-to-day political affairs. The system is similar to the UK in this way, the main difference being you have to go waaaay back to see an instance where the UK monarch exercised such...

    RUSSIA is FUNDING the #CALEXIT MOVEMENT! (MULTIPLE SOURCES, please bone up)...

    So it seems that there is strain of RW denial (or idiocy) on this board that are telling themselves and trying to tell us us that CALIFORNIANS on their own just decided to break off from the rest of the United States. The same flagrant ignorance or denial that does not understand that PUTIN...

    Sanders movement turns to midterms

    Pretty topical since progressives are watching to see if any dems vote to confirm SC nominee Neil Gorsuch. During his presidential campaign, Sen. Bernie Sanders never quite decided whether his "political revolution" could coexist with the Democratic Party or needed to overthrow it. Now...
