    It just gets more humiliating for Rudy

    All Aboard

    I'm not sure I ever got on it, really. I was disappointed when he won the nomination in 2016, but I stuck with him thinking, as many did, that he would get more serious when he became president. When he didn't, I jumped off the train. I even left the GOP. I'm still a traditional...

    Juno actor Ellen Page publicly comes out as a transgender male named Elliot and tells fans in a statement: 'My pronouns are he/they' - as wife of two

    What's with the sudden dialect? Anyway, Ecofram, I can see we're got getting anywhere with this, so we'll just have to agree to disagree. You can have the last word, of course. :)

    If you were to go back and look at my posts, Ecofarm, you would see that I never said a word about scholarships--I was talking about winning the events. A scholarship is based on a "personal best," but at the competitions, they don't hand out trophies for "personal bests." To see someone else...

    For that matter, Ecofarm, why don't we do away with age discrimination and let high schoolers compete against middle schoolers? There are good reasons why we don't do that, and thaose are the same reasons we shouldn't let transgendered females complete against born females. Also, Ecofarm, you...

    Covid deaths are grossly underrated.

    Well stated, Rogue.

    Suspiciously Uncanny Similarities?

    I guess similarities are in the eyes of the beholders. (I think they look very much alike.)

    Someone's knocking! Should we let him/her in?

    That poor thing! Did he really want in, or was he just trying to chop out a hole? (I have zero experience with woodpeckers.)

    Juno actor Ellen Page publicly comes out as a transgender male named Elliot and tells fans in a statement: 'My pronouns are he/they' - as wife of two

    But, Ecofarm, the way I understand it, it's not the national scene that people are concerned about, but the local, state-wide competitions. Since I have no proof of this, you can freely consider it to be anecdotal, but I saw a national news report during the past year or so that talked about a...

    Nat, it might just be their way of "shouting it from the rooftops," as kind of release of feelings that they had suppressed for so many years. Since I've never been in that situation, I'm just trying to be as understanding as I can by cutting them a little slack.

    Covid deaths are grossly underrated.

    It's a terrible, terrible thing. I lost a senior friend to it just last week--a former church member who had moved to another state several years ago. I fully understand people who are suffering economically because the lock-down, and I'm in favor of the government helping them any way it can...

    Why did the White House close the Pentagon's Defeat ISIS Task Force?

    Maybe this is the reason he seeks to pardon himself in advance. I know this is really stretching things, but maybe it's a way for us to get ISIS to drop their guard so they will do things more openly and therefore make it easier for us to clobber them. Or, maybe Trump is just an idiot.

    Suspiciously Uncanny Similarities?

    Thanks, Empirica--I looked at the video, and she even talks like her! Weird!

    I don't know the person on the left. Do they sound alike, too?
