  1. A political cartoon IS commentary. Are we expected to explain them?
  2. Don't call it "slavery", it's "involuntary relocation". https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2022/07/01/texas-board-education-slavery-involuntary-relocation/
  3. "I didn't do it It's not my fault I wasn't even there" Tee shirt inscription from Joe Pete's Bail Bonds. Joe Pete LaRusso is a skydiver and regular participant in SOS events..
  4. ACA ended up quite different from Obama's proposal thanks to obstructionism from the GOP. You might want to check your history.
  5. It writes in better English than most of my students did. Consistency in tenses, correct use of adverbs, etc.
  6. The first author on this paper is the algorithm: https://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/hal-03701250/document
  7. You see what you want to see and disregard the rest.
  8. I simply don't see how forcing a rape victim to go through 9 months of pregnancy, totally disrupt her life, and then be forced to give birth to her rapist's child can be considered anything but cruel, unusual, and a total and complete violation of her rights. Maybe someone can explain.
  9. "No-one knows how to throw a tantrum better than I do"; D. Trump.
  10. I don't generally agree with AOC's positions, but i do on this: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/jun/27/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-supreme-court-justices-impeach-kavanaugh-gorsuch-thomas
  11. CNN — 6/28 Most Americans disapprove of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade, according to a CBS News/YouGov poll conducted Friday and Saturday in the immediate wake of the ruling. A 59% majority of US adults disapprove, with 41% approving. About half (52%) call the decision a step backward for America, with 31% calling it a step forward and 17% saying it’s neither. Among women, two-thirds (67%) disapprove of the ruling, with just 33% approving. A 56% majority of women say that the decision will make the lives of most American women worse. A 58% majority of Americans say they’d favor a federal law making abortion legal nationwide, while 42% would oppose this. And 64% say they’d like abortion in their states to be legal in most or all cases. Most Americans now say they believe it’s at least somewhat likely that the Supreme Court will eventually end or limit same-sex marriage (57%) and access to birth control and contraception (55%). Only 33% say they have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in the Supreme Court, with 23% saying they have just some confidence and 44% that they have very little confidence in the Supreme Court.
  12. So the UK gets to preach to the USA about freedom.
