Written like a good Russian, from the land of the pogroms. Russian state sanctioned pogroms didn't just target Jews, but they went after Polish Catholics and Lithuanians too. The culmination of Russian hatred occurred with Russia's alliance with nazi Germany and invasion of Poland and subsequent slaughter of Poles. Continental Europe and the Middle east's ignorance profited English speaking democracies which welcomed the people you seem to loathe. There were significant advances in science and technology once they moved to countries which offered freedom. Freedom is a concept that still eludes Russia.
No, it is not self evident. You seek absolutes without context as you try to build a basis to justify your extremism. Sanctity of life is a construct of a number of religions. I deal with such issues on a case by case basis and rely on the facts and circumstances of the case to influence my position. I do not kill people who disagree with me because it would be a waste of energy and a poor use of my time. I would spend all day killing such that I would not have time for the pursuits that interest me.
Everyday, people put themselves at risk in the service of others. It might be the EMT responding to a psychotic wielding a knife, it might be a fireman rescuing a child from a structure fire, or it might be a copper rushing in to a mass shooting. As to whether or not I would sacrifice myself for others, I already have. In hindsight I would not do it again. I do not need a simplistic lesson in morality from you. Nor are you one to regurgitate the simplistic comments on fanatacism when you embrace fanatical claims of unsubstantiated conspiracies promoting nonsense like President Bident being bribed by China.
Dear me! Got caught out with the EPL. I was thinking the matches were today, and missed the two last night.
What a game at Luton. Was gonner be yet another 3-3 when Ricey sorted out a great header to send Hatter's fans home sick as;; well hats!
The other match was pretty even looking at the stats.
So to tonight;;;
3-1 - Seagulls - Bees
1-1 - Palace - Cherries
2-0 - Cottagers - Forest
2-2 - Blades - Pool
2-2 - Villa - City
1-2 - United - Blues
Some shock results there if I'm right. Never been wrong on footy forecasting. We will see.
Have the Blades sacked their manager yet? Heard a rumour.
You are throwing out claims that originate from a partisan source and that have been presented out of context. The bank record released Monday shows Hunter transferred $1,380 to his father in September 2018, when Joe Biden was not in office. Comer’s accompanying press release does not mention that Hunter made only two additional payments to his father in the same amount, on October 15, 2018, and November 15, 2018—a total of less than $4,500. Biden had not been VP for 2 years. Comers has alleged that Biden was being paid off while in office. Comer does not mention that the loan repayment was 2 years after Biden left office. There is no evidence of any other payments made. The repayment lines up with the amount need to finance the vehicle purchase. This is a recycled Trump-Giuliani conspiracy claim, and we all know how valid those claims have been.
The Comer allegation is discussed here https://newrepublic.com/post/177317/james-comer-logic-biden-truck-payment and here https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2023/12/04/comer-mischaracterizes-hunter-biden-car-payment-reimbursement-his-dad/ It is just more malicious gutter politics from the desperate Republicans.
In respect to the practice of families helping each other out, Comer and his gang of malcontents have indeed questioned why Joe Biden helped his son out. It is normal practice in much of the world to help children, no matter the age. And no, it is not rhetoric to consider the attempt to portray normal family behavior as a sinister Chinese bribe as idiotic and reflective of the mindset of dysfunctional people. They live in the gutter. All that Comer has thrown out is innuendo. He has not been able to make a case to support his allegations and that is typical of his gang of malcontents.
