  1. A school has won a court battle, allowing it to use electric shock devices on students. The Judge Rotenberg Educational Center in Massachusetts, US, reportedly introduced the controversial practice to deal with aggressive or self-harming behaviour in adults and children. The US Food and Drug Administration had previously banned the use of such devices, however, a 2-1 ruling by the US Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit saw the ban overturned. According to the school's website, it caters for 'both emotionally disturbed students with conduct, behaviour, emotional, and/or psychiatric problems, as well as those with intellectual disabilities or on the autism spectrum'. Parents and guardians of pupils, as well as the school itself, are said to be pleased with the ruling. https://www.ladbible.com/news/news-school-wins-legal-battle-to-electric-shock-children-20210708 https://www.reuters.com/legal/litigation/dc-circuit-overturns-fda-ban-shock-device-disabled-students-2021-07-06/

    I saw this on YouTube and really liked it: "Unpopular opinion: I don't think your life has to have a purpose or you a grand ambition. I think it's okay to just wander through life finding interesting things until you die".

    I've gotta go and set up an Anti-Vaccine Information Tent on the High Street now. Then..... as anti-vaxers enter, I'm picking them off one-by-one from the roof of the post office. I hope it doesn't rain, cuz it messes with the silencer.

  9. Just hours after news of citizens being shot for protesting in Cuba, Black Live Matter (the organization) issued a statement supporting the communist regime and denouncing the USA's part in the protests. https://nypost.com/2021/07/15/blm-under-fire-for-defending-cuban-regime-blaming-protests-on-us/ So police brutality is bad. But black people being shot by communist regime police officers is fine, because communism. But black live matter is ONLY interested in black lives, not in promoting communism....

    The pathetic thing is that he only loves himself and the rest can take a hike… Unfortunately his followers fail to see that and continue to follow this loser…Remember anyone who says a disparaging against him is attacked ruthlessly… Pretty soon he will eliminate most of the Republican Party with his pettiness…

  19. Democrats picked their witnesses carefully GOP tried to distract Kinzinger seizes moment Racism on Jan. 6 takes center stage Gripping language underscores severity of attack In other words, they picked witnesses that would evoke a maximum emotional response from emotional people (liberals) the GOP held a press conference Dude CRIED OMG he cried Racism. wow. so surprised they went there They rehearsed testimony to get a maximum emotional response from the puppet show audience.
  20. A self-proclaimed 'time traveller' has revealed when aliens will embark on planet earth, and he's posted his findings to TikTok. For starters, it looks as though our new alien pals will be very tall - '7 foot 4', to be precise, and for context that's more than half a foot taller than Peter Crouch. They will also have 'long shaped skulls', apparently, with a 'dark grey' complexion and 'distorted appearance'. Disappointingly, the video shows us no photographic evidence of the aliens, and instead settles for a backdrop of the sky with some text over the top. Well, I suppose he's a bit too busy to bother with a camera lens, what with going back and forth across time and all that. I'm amazed he managed to find time to set up a TikTok account, to be honest. At least he's considerate enough to let us know the date of their arrival, though. The text in the video reads: "Aliens will make their first appearance on Earth next year. "The exact date they are first sighted is May 24th 2022." https://www.ladbible.com/news/news-time-traveller-reveals-when-aliens-will-first-land-on-earth-20210709

    Heavy lightning and downpours through last night, intermittent but intense downpours now, to be continued through tonight when Hurricane Elsa slides on by us. My new perennials have been pummeled into the mulch and are drowning, drowning. Yipes.

    Upon retiring, a woman decided to fulfill her lifelong dream and live abroad. As part of her preparations, she visited her doctor to pick up her medical records. The doctor asked her how she was doing, so with a sigh, she reported a litany of symptoms, this aches, that's stiff, I'm not as quick as I used to be, and so on. He responded with, "Mrs. Dickson, you have to expect things to start deteriorating. After all, who wants to live to a hundred?" Mrs. Dickson looked him straight in the eye and replied, "Anyone who's ninety-nine."

    Separation of Church and State

    In one version of the American theory, by priciples of (1) limited power of government and (2) divided power of government (among three branches, but also within the non-executive branches themselves, PLUS between federal and state governments, and within state governments, among its branches and in some states, between the state government and its minor civil divisions). Although some of the states allow episodic "direct democracy" (e.g. a few referenda on the annual or biennial election ballot), the federal government does not. This is a conception of "legitimacy" in which what power there is derives from the people, but the people do not have each and every power that any sovreign has ever historically wielded. That these limitations and dispersals of government power were "undemocratic" was recognized and accepted from the outset. In fact, at the very outset, voting was limited to mature adult male taxpayers (which in practice would be property owners or professionals). People have been arguing about whence comes legitimacy for governments as far back as we have records, so I hesitate to invest heavily in defending this one view in this forum. However, you did make a global statement about legitimacy in a democratic context, and I rise to dissent. The American founders crafted something founded in democracy, but with limitations they felt were needed to avoid collective tyranny. One phrase of theirs which I especially admire (these dudes could write) is that these limitations on popular sovreignity were to allow "appeal from the people drunk to the people sober." Other views are possible of course.

  33. In any sensible nation, knocking on doors offering the COVID injection would be a good community service (with the proviso that “yeah, nah thanks mate” doesn’t end up up on a watch list). However, in America it’s a threat to freedom. Mind you, in China it would be Tuesday.

    Separation of Church and State

    Oh come on NW. He obviously meant 55. He's a world class athlete. What I'd really like to know is what any of this crap has to do with the separation of church and state.
  36. I'll have what you're smoking. Seriously, now you talk with trees, but in the past you have given me grief for communicatng with dogs (not anybody else or anything else "speaking" to me "through" them; They can often get their own messages across, and figure out mine, just fine in my experience).

    Is it just me, or do all the crazy posts lately seem like they're from the same person with different screen names? Maybe I've just been looking at this for too long. Reptilians...Borg... I know it's UM, but...wow.

    Actually, your problem is that I do listen, and I'm not alone in that. Seriously, @Nuclear Wessel offered you some good advice just now. Just drop the "SDA? moi?" pose, and everybody will be happier, including you.
  39. Do you know the difference between a space based system searching for bio signatures in space and a story some kook tells about being raped by an alien right? Or no going by your response.......

    I freaking hate it when Amazon recommends you books...and then when you click on the product description it only tells you how it's a bestseller and how many copies it has sold instead of what it is about. Idk maybe I'm weird, but I pick my books by whether or not they sound interesting to me, not by how many people have bought it.
  47. Ye gods! Talk about a backwards step. Compare that to shock collars for dogs being banned in the UK this year.
