Men in the Women's Bathroom

If this wasn’t a man, this was a woman who had fully transitioned via surgery and hormones into a man and had also gotten an Adam’s apple implant, chest hair and size 9-10 shoes ....and at that point, wtf are you doing in the women’s restroom?

Isn't that what the bathroom laws would require, though?

The First Trump term.

It depends on what was being said at the time. The media is supposed to judge the truthfulness of things, based on available evidence, and if Spicer was saying something at the time that was clearly a lie then head shaking is to be expected. However the media have abdicated their integrity, so odds ...

Justice according to who? You? Yes, of course. And you, and TheCatt, and every Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice. We are all responsible for our own decisions about what is right and wrong, that is unavoidable. Letting some lawmaker override your own decisions about right and wrong because they...

Planned Parenthood is organ farming

If I recall correctly, some of the taping was done in a conference setting that they would have had to lie and falsify documentation to be admitted to. So perhaps that is the one that is being pursued. You are totally right about the one in the restaurant; there's no chance that one will go anywhere...

Here, the Wikipedia article on legal intent is a pretty good place to start if you don't care to take my word for it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intention_(criminal_law) Or if you want to get more directly to the point on this conversation you'll want: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mens_rea EDIT:...

These people are breaking laws and we're supposed to forgive that because we should feel bad for them? I think you and I have a fundamental difference in how we view laws. I don't give a shit what the law says, I only care about justice. If the law is unjust, then I will ignore it as I see fit. I s...

Don't be stupid, of course intent doesn't excuse you from getting in trouble for breaking laws. It only goes in the other direction; your intent can still get you in trouble even if what you did was technically legal on the surface without the intent. More commonly it applies to such things as the d...

They rules on his travel ban, not on the law as written, but based on things he said on the campaign trail? Seriously? If that is to be accepted as the basis of law, courts will be interpreting laws in a whole new way. Intent is - and has always been - an important part of these legal processes. If...

144638 I also don't trust any of those numbers. Fair enough, anything online is questionable. But Politifact in particular is pretty equally hated by both sides. Republicans think it's a liberal mouthpiece and Democrats think it's a conservative mouthpiece. So they're probably doing something right...

It would certainly get more attention on the problem.

The First Trump term.

Indeed, I was including the VA situation in the "what we have" group. On the plus side, the main problem with the VA is that their record-keeping is mired in the early 1900s. If they do have any computers up in there they're running on tubes. Moving the whole country into line with the VA ...

Actually, if you had no injury or pain, you could go wipe out cartels and take all their money for yourself.

And then on day 366 you are dead.

Why is one law ok to break, but the other isn't? Because incompetent or corrupt lawmakers and cops that arbitrarily choose when to enforce a law versus when to ignore a law have destroyed any respect for the rule of law in this country. We've all seen those "stupid laws" lists. All of tho...
