Topic: Arkansas Passes Law Allowing Doctors to refuse LGBT Patients
Replies: 326
Views: 7408

Doctors are allowed to turn away patients for any reason. I have had multiple back surgeries, and my first surgeon eventually turned me away because I had become untreatable in his eyes, and that is their reserved right to do this. This practice happens all the time, and whatever the reason may be ...

Remember, storming a government building saying you're going to kill the people inside (and actually kill someone inside) and overthrow the results of a free and fair election is only an attempted coup if you shoot bullets in the process.

So a Police officer serving with a road safety unit TWOCs a car and goes speeding off, and you think he should face no consequences for this behaviour because you think the speed limit is too low? I don't think people's private lives should be influenced by the power of media and journalism, no. So...

Except it's not, but go off. Much on this list is simply wrong. The list proclaims 130 as the speed limit in Poland and Germany, while in Poland it is 140 (https://www.autostrada-a4.com.pl/bezpieczenstwo/zasady_ruchu_na_autostradzie) and Germany has no speed limit, but 140 is the recommended limit ...

10 day quarantine requirement for entering the country says hi. There is an exception for attending a funeral of a family member. This applies to everyone, not just Prince Harry. There will be no exception to the rules. I trust this is not a disappointment to you. What makes you think I'm disappoin...

IIRC according to his will he's not going to have a state funeral or military parade. All members of the royal family plan their funeral while they're alive.

Given that the list you posted has some wild inaccuracies I would say that you made my point nicely.

Philip was criticised during his life, every single time he made one of these comments. He was also taken out of context a lot to sell newspapers. The chap who reported on the spear chucking Aborigines comment was on tv yesterday and gave the whole context of the remark. It was a perfectly sensible...

Plenty of dead people who aren't public figures have ill spoken of them. People say that we shouldn't speak ill of the dead, but we actually do it all the time. Just because some of us choose to speak ill of the dead doesn’t mean it’s acceptable, nor does it legitimize anybody’s decision to do so. ...

People should not be above criticism simply because they happen to be no longer alive, and the fact of the matter is that this man was a hidebound reactionary with some extraordinarily repulsive stances.

So, where was the Met enforcing COVID rules against the vigil outside Buckingham Palace like they did in Clapham? This is different, because reasons. Oh right, I forgot that the virus only infects people when the government says it can, hence why all those rule-breaking VE Day parties were allowed.

I like prince Philip. He shows that immigrants from a war torn continent can become beloved by the local populace. So true. The Duke of Edinburgh’s bad reputation is so tragically unfounded. I’m not a British subject, but from what I’ve seen, prince Philip was a kind soul and an educated man. I’ll ...
