how many of you are okay with this?

Why would US domestic law apply to non-US citizens?

It's the law, policies and procedures as it applies to immigrants seeking entry clearence to or asylum in the US, or have been found attempting to irregularly enter. It is also international law as the US have agreed to the articles of the Pro

Sorry, if you break the law, then you get what's coming to you. If you entered, say, Mexico illegally, would you expect to be treated as if you had merely committed a "misdemeanour" and were entitled to comfortable accommodation?

If you entered Mexico illegally you can be reasonably confident th

Probably eliminated at quarter-finals as is tradition, but as I'm cynical I'll call elimination during group stage like last time's fiasco.

The pick of Germany for the work sweepstake didn't look to be such a surefire choice though.

What is National Socialism?

I wouldn't even say nation is a huge divider.

I think if you live on a continent-spanning country with several hundred million, it's probably less noticable.

Meanwhile myself and SA are an hour or so away from a nation and people who speak a completely different language and have a distinct a

Can we all agree..?

It's more that none of this really builds on the more specific frameworks that were developed and pushed by the Clinton and Bush administrations when it came to bilateral relations and nuclear disarmament. It's not really anything that hasn't been raised before.

The North Koreans have agreed to n

Kern says that trump actually met with Kim jong. Is this true?

Agreement looks to be a complete fudge with no concrete commitments nor specificity to merit the response we have seen from Trump and his advisers. Especially after the farce that was the G7. But it was ever thus.

The Scientistic Delusion

Finally read through this. A busy week meant I read the opening few paragraphs about five times before finishing. It had gotten to the point where I had asumed the entire article was going to be about Freud and psychoanalysis, before I remembered the title.

It's certainly not a completely novel s

Sensible lefties

Tony Judt's Ill Fares the Land. And then his essay collections Reappraisals and When the Facts Change.

IFTL is a short overt polemic. You'll probably get more enjoyment from his essays though, as Judt had a vast and seemingly unending knowledge of European history and politic

The Iran Nuclear Deal

Can someone, ideally both proponents and opponents, please go over the arguments as to why the Trump administration is reneging on the framework and withdrawing from UNSC Resolution 2231?

Any possible reasoning as to why this is a good idea would be great.

Nongendered Scouts

Well, considering the vast majority of Scouting organisations outside the US (at least in the Commonwealth) are mixed gender, it'd only be joining a wider trend. The "Boy" was dropped in the late 1960s in the UK. The competition with Girl Scouts part is a bit weird though.

I enjoyed it when I did

Van ploughs into pedestrians in Toronto

The Dred Scott decision was also a function of an independent judiciary. The result was still unconscionable, anti human, and a sign that the state is participating in a great evil.

Ah yes, a decision in antebellum US, a completely different jurisdiction, 160 years old, in a Supreme Court that i

Van ploughs into pedestrians in Toronto

As we can't ask him, and as his parents are his guardians, legal or otherwise, and the ancient contract that binds parents to their children should never be broken lightly, it stands to reason that they are the only ones with a legitimate say in the matter. Just how do you reconcile the paradox of

There is absolutely no justification to dress that up in. The boy could have all the neurological activity of a root vegetable for all that's relevant to the injustice taking place here. That the government should assume the authority previously reserved for parents throughout all of the preceding

Germans to be a minority in Germany by 2060.

England in particular had been pretty successful in integrating newcomers into British culture. I'd like to see more of that, and less multiculturalism / refugee camps / communities that are entirely their country of origin and stay that way for generations.

Certain cultures are more receptive t

This hand wave of wait lists rings hollow. Wait lists exist in single payer schemes, as do effective death panels. After all, the British government apparently has the authority to determine whether or not a child will remain on life support regardless of the wishes of his parents.

GT Quotes: #85 Edition

a high-quality show in general, maybe a bit like how adults will watch adventure time or dbz.

DBZ is a 90s shonen that has not aged well beyond a retro love for a 90s animation aesthetic ("y won't DBS look like DBZ in the 90s when it was good?!"). Upon rewatching as an adult in this context, it

Romans got a bit degen and multiculti in the end.

Romans were degen and multiculti from the beginning, by modern, post-Christianity standards.

Rather the public works, civic efficiency and culture of Rome than some irredeemable Puritan society.

When the Romans conquered Judea, they though

Who is pushing for Syrian intervention ?

We don’t have to limit our support to just moderate groups, but it’s important to remember that they do exist and not to let ourselves be bogged down by our own anti-islamic prejudices.

It isn't anti-Islamic "prejudice"; it's objective and observable policy trends. All evidence shows that fu
