McConnell won't bring legislation to protect Mueller to vote. https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/17/politics/mitch-mcconell-robert-mueller-donald-trump-senate/index.html It's fine, as he notes Trump will never sign so kind of a waste of time to table. Someone with a spine could convince Trump that signing...

No. You’re shifting the goalpost. And actually, it doesn’t. One can affirm one is free and grown person live as one wants without saying you can do whatever you want, with a few exceptions. But the bigger issue is when one believes in an absolute right of self ownership. I mean J.S. Mill made excep...

*snip* I'm still not sure your math is right. Yeah, those minus signs should have been plus signs. Edited above. [EDIT] and stupid brackets, now removed. [EDIT2] and more changes. Look, I'm sure you get my point: there's an equation, it needs to stay balanced. If women were raping men at a dissimil...

That's a highly specific number I'd like a citation for. Lrn to math. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/births.htm 3,945,875 live births. If 5% of women birthed rape babies, that's 197,294 births (rounded), except, you should probably roughly double that, given men are raped at about the same rate a...

Uh, holy shit, no it is not. Unless you can show that most pubescent teens have absolutely no idea where babies come from, I'm going to have to disagree. People know that sex leads to pregnancy. "Consenting to sex isn't consenting to parenthood" is just another way of saying "I want ...

3) Continue our obviously sexist path, where women and only women can give up their rights and responsibilities, and men and only men are required to be responsible and have no choice. If abortion and contraception was easy to access and men were taught to treat women with respect in sex ed classes...

I also object to number 2, because the people giving up their children for adoption are not typically flush with cash. Well, number 2 is obviously unwise, but it's not sexist. We have lots of unwise policies, but I object harder to sexist ones. Certainly. But if we're going about changing policies ...

In today's society, men can only walk away from parental responsibilities if they are allowed to by other people, namely the mother and the legal system. And the mother can't gain child support unless they are able to pay for expensive legal services, in many cases. Some mothers also may not have t...

In today's society, many can. No, they can't - not unless permitted by the mother. I am talking about a potential solution to parts of the childhood poverty problem. Here's the thing, we have three options. 1) Allow parental relinquishment for both parents. This would allow men to walk away if they...

You just explained why women are allowed to secede their legal rights and responsibilities, by leaving their babies at drop off centers. You have again failed to explain why men are not allowed to secede their legal rights and responsibilities. Because more or less, a group of old and rich or power...

Theres thousands of men in prison for failing to pay child support. Do you that's a good thing right? Those idiots had unprotected sex, and then refused to care for the child that they helped to make. The mothers, most of them low-income, were left with children with little money to care for them. ...

Great job explaining why drop off centers are a thing, but you completely failed to address why men are not afforded the same opportunity that women are, to secede their legal rights and responsibilities without penalty. Because the legal system is so very out of touch with the situation of today. ...

And what about drop off centers? The baby isn't occupying her body any more after that. It is an effort to prevent more infant mortality than would occur otherwise. Some people apparently choose to abandon infants in public places in the absence of such a system, it is too late if an infant is foun...

It is for women. They can (in most places) get an abortion, or give their child up for adoption. It has been explained over and over again, it is primarily because pregnancy only takes place in the woman's body which the law recognizes as their having full control and ownership of. Can't well preve...

And yet, child support law makes no exceptions for those whose condoms broke, overflowed, or slipped off. Because while consent to sex is not consent to parenthood, consent isn't a factor when it comes to parenthood and child support. It is for women. They can (in most places) get an abortion, or g...

If this feature is kept a market should be added at some point, so people looking to buy cards can quickly peruse through all those being offered for sale; naturally, this market should include some filter and search functions so that people can quickly locate cards of a certain rarity/price/region/...

Just picked up an Epic card from a nation that has never posted on the forums. Rarity almost certainly has nothing to do with forum activity.

What can I say, I'm a popular guy ;) Also, it's entirely possible that the rarity of a card simply refers to the odds of a card of that type being drawn, and not of that specific nation being drawn. If there are vastly more Uncommons than there are Ultra-Rares, finding one specific Uncommon card mi...

Given that we can junk cards if we want, and that there are already two cards of myself in circulation, it seems to me that the rarity serves to determine how likely it is somebody will draw that card when they open a deck. So people could draw a bunch of "Camicon" cards, and keep drawing...

We’re not really sure yet. We assumed it was influence, based on how many of our Security Councillors in The North Pacific had Epic, Legendary, and Ultra Rare ranks. The issue with that theory is that one of our SC members has a lower influence than the other, but is a rank higher. Another theory w...
