Well, if the "gender nonsense" is not based on real life, then Florida's Parental Rights in Education bill (Florida House Bill 1557) that was recently enacted is a complete non-issue because, in that case, it tries to solve a problem that doesn't exist.

Which begs the question what the woke outrage was all about.
There are two types of outrage: The bullshit MAGA culture war stuff ("they are turning our kids into transsexuals" and that is after "they want to kill babies after birth"), and the woke "how dare you white guy even have an opinion on this" idiocy. The problem is that currently the MAGA kooks seem to use this to pass or propose illiberal legislation.

Great idea to have parents control the education of children and take the control away from the experts, none of those who shot so many of their schoolmates in recent years had parents - oh, wait a minute......

Edit: back to Trump and 2024, after the collapse of his handpicked candidates in Georgia Trump should be thinking about a new strategy instead of reliving the last election, I hope he keeps propagating the big lie and losing ever more support

I was actually hoping for an intelligent discussion.

You obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Perhaps inform yourself next time before you post.

Elon Musk said he would reverse Trump's Twitter ban

Jack Dorsey admits it was a mistake to ban Trump

https://nypost.com/2022/05/11/jack-d...-from-twitter/

Finally.....some common sense
and today
Quote:
Elon Musk issued his most direct threat yet to walk away from his purchase of Twitter on Monday, openly accusing the social media company of breaching the merger agreement by not providing the data he has requested on spam and fake accounts.

In a letter to Twitter's head of legal, policy and trust, Vijaya Gadde, Musk alleged that Twitter is "actively resisting and thwarting his information rights" as outlined by the deal.
Musk is harder to read than the Oracle of Delphi.

Re: All about Trump and 2024

Giuliani is in trouble again, Rudy was hit with an ethics charge by the Washington, D.C., Office of Disciplinary Counsel on Friday over his promotion of baseless claims about fraud in the 2020 presidential election before a federal court in Pennsylvania, jeopardizing his ability to practice law in the city.

The complaint said that Giuliani provided insufficient sourcing to prove his allegations that election fraud had taken place in Pennsylvania.

Last year, the New York Supreme Court’s appellate division suspended his law license in that state.

We will probably never know why Rudy decided to ruin his reputation instead of quietly retiring.

Re: All about Trump and 2024

Remember, Trump didn't just lose the 2020 election, but also:
He lost sixty+ legal challenges.
He lost in his efforts to get Republican state legislatures to undo the results.
He lost his effort to get his VP to overturn the results.
He lost three separate counts in Georgia.
He lost an audit conducted by his allies in Arizona.
He lost in his multiple efforts to get the Supreme Court to intervene.
Trump seems to have found more ways to lose than any other candidate ever.

Speaking of which
Quote:
Trump floats pardons for Jan. 6 defendants after a potential 2024 win

Trump said he would “very, very seriously” consider issuing pardons to defendants in cases connected to the Jan. 6 riot if he were reelected president. He claimed the defendants are being “treated worse than terrorists and murderers” and that most are charged with “parading” through the Capitol.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has joined former President Donald Trump’s Truth Social network in what he describes as an effort to combat “Republican lies” about U.S. politics.

“We are not going to let Republican lies go unchecked. Not in this campaign, and not with so much at stake in California and in our country,” Newsom said in an email message to supporters on Wednesday.

Can you tell us what Gavin is writing, I am still on a waiting list to join with around 1.5 million other people.

Judging by all his other posts, I really, really doubt it.

At last the U.S. ought to now lose it's moniker as "leader of the free world" as with it's religious fundamentalism taking hold, it's probably rated down the scale quite a bit.

Only the right to safe abortion, under medical supervision, has been removed from constitutional protection. The other methods would remain as before.

Partially wrong. Though I personally don't believe in Abortion I understand that there are (rare) cases where the alternative is worse. So a blank ban of abortion, I am not for. There has to be some kind of practical compromise that both sides can live with.

That being said, the 2 cases overturned (Roe and Casey) are awful. The legal basis for it (right to privacy) is in my opinion questionable. It was set in such a way that the basis for the lawsuit was an entirely sane law that banned abortions after 15 weeks. (more generous than most of Europe)

For sure, I don't agree that a court should set the rules for the entire country on what is acceptable and what is not. This issue should have been worked out legislatively to set a minimum requirement for the country.

No homophobia intended in my post.

Sorry to have upset you. I should have realised.

The forum name Kiwi-guy should have been a give-away.
