    One can as easily say:

    It’s always interesting when Republicans don’t get their way, they project blame, by claiming things like “the worst scotus* in history”, Biden, or mimic Fox rhetoric, to deflect from the truth of their policies being the root cause of our country’s problems. Republicans have a total disregard for the rights of ALL women, and only are focused on their ideology and not the country as a whole.

    Republicans often work through fear of various sorts, including the fear of uncertainty, and hit into Kahneman’s “fast thought” aspect. For example that is the basis of the Great Replacement fear of the Right. Democrats are much more likely to try for the Kahneman “slow thought”, which takes more work and a tolerance for uncertainty.

    Abortion is not a scientific but a political decision. That said, pregnancies in which the fetus dies in utero or ectopic pregnancies are medically justified, regardless of how far into the term the pregnancy is, to save the woman’s life. The fetal life is already not possible. These account for less than 1% of total abortions but are the primary reason for late term abortion.

    Or add teeth to the well-regulated militia bit with a real requirement to serve.

    I keep posting about the difference between the USA and Switzerland, but apparently to little avail. First the Swiss are a very well-armed nation on a per capita basis, but on the other hand, they have a very low incidence of gun violence. Of course, they really do have a well-regulated militia. They also require training to handle a gun, a permit to get one (issued by the local police and very well-investigated) and restrictions on carrying a loaded gun on the street. Do you think just maybe they may have a more effective system than we do? I might mention that they also beat us in happiness, freedom and political stability indices. Zom and Co. won’t read or understand what I’m writing here, but so what. Reality may someday come back and bite him…

    Pretty well covers it, and the electrical orientation of the plugs is right on.

    “Loner” is not the same as “loaner”.

    There is a failure of empathy in some of these people. I wonder if research on mirror neurons could tell us something about this. Mirror neurons are those involved in one’s ability to put oneself in another’s position mentally, to imagine how it feels to be that other person.

    It makes one wonder how good a contortionist Lester is…
