I'm an American citizen and a Rodnover (pre-Christian Slavic paganism). I consider both current US citizens of all races and other Slavs (both those in Slavic nations today as well as those of at least half Slavic descent in other countries) to be my nation or tribe and subscribe to the pre-Christia...

1.) Are you drinking tonight or did you drink last night, and if so how much? No and no. Usually a shot of Krupnik (honey liquor) before bed, but it's not available where I am so I'm simply doing without. I'll definitely have at least one drink tomorrow and probably several on Saturday. 2.) About ho...

Replies: 237

Homelessness is almost non-existent here. Those who want homes but can't pay for them are given council housing, which is a bit spartan but safe and clean, sometimes even furnished. Those who don't want homes and pose no danger or nuisance to others are allowed to go their way. Those who do pose a d...

It really depends on the person and their circumstances. We are responsible for our own actions, but we don't live each in our own universe unaffected by the actions of others. An alcoholic who gambles and drinks every paycheck has no one but himself to blame. The factory worker whose job leaves for...

Even as a gay man who hopes to marry some day, I was strongly in favor of the baker. Legally, I never thought the plaintiff had much ground to stand on. It's not like that Kentucky marriage license clerk, who rightfully went to jail, thinking she could legislate something from her desk and deny peop...

Ultimately, I believe in a deity because it explains things that not only science doesn't seem to have an answer for, but a professor of astronomy actually said "you can't ask that" (things like what was before the big bang, what's after the edge of the universe). I was actually an Ayn Ran...

On /pol/ right now, they're blaming (or cheering) someone from /g/. It serves NASA right in a way because there is no good reason a website in 2018 should be vulnerable to SQL injection.

I used to wipe sitting down, and if the sink was next to the toilet, I'd always get the toilet paper wet.

They should exist, but their wastefulness should be offset by something that does some good. I would have no problem with bringing back the luxury tax in the US, which we had for all things until 1993 and on luxury cars until 2002. I agree though that an outright ban on luxury goods would be a bad t...

I find it hard to conceive of an adult who likes wearing the clothing of the opposite sex yet has no other desire to be like the opposite sex, like a transgender person. Still, it has no effect on me, and I've even found drag shows entertaining, so I have absolutely nothing against it.
