    Brexit

    So when does the NHS start getting the £350 million a week
  2. Still dont hate the person, hate the belief
  3. I would say so, hate their beliefs but dont hate the person, they may not know any better, especially if they are surrounded by others who have the same beliefs
  4. All societies have some restrictions on speech, even your beloved USA. Try walking into a cinema and yelling that there is a fire, when there isnt one and see what happens to you. Also civilised people do not hate people for something that they have no control over, ie skin colour, race, sexuality etc
  5. Alexander Hamilton, in Federalist 65, described impeachable offenses as arising from "the misconduct of public men, or in other words from the abuse or violation of some public trust". Such offenses were "political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself". According to this reasoning, impeachable conduct could include behavior that violates an official's duty to the country, even if such conduct is not necessarily a prosecutable offense. Indeed, in the past both houses of Congress have given the phrase "high Crimes and Misdemeanors" a broad reading, finding that impeachable offenses need not be limited to criminal conduct. Does impeachment need a crime to have taken place, it would seem not
  6. You dont think it would be an issue if people in an office were sitting around talking about how gay people are not human, and should not have equal rights, or that black people are sub-human. Hate speech has no place in a civilised society
  7. I was just showing the stupidity of the argument by drawing the next logical step. Banning some speech is fine, ie hate speech, banning the discussion of speech in the office is a non starter. You could limit the time people can do it, my office is quite relaxed as long as the work is getting done.
  8. So is the fact he has been impeached
  9. Does impeachment necessitate a crime, I am sure that has never been fully tested and there are many who argue that no crime needs to take place for impeachment. Alexander Hamilton, in Federalist 65, described impeachable offenses as arising from "the misconduct of public men, or in other words from the abuse or violation of some public trust". Such offenses were "political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself". According to this reasoning, impeachable conduct could include behavior that violates an official's duty to the country, even if such conduct is not necessarily a prosecutable offense. Indeed, in the past both houses of Congress have given the phrase "high Crimes and Misdemeanors" a broad reading, finding that impeachable offenses need not be limited to criminal conduct.
  10. Stupidest comment of the year, however I would allow the banning of sports talk, not much in my office as most people don't follow any sport, as long as we can ban the chat about reality TV
  11. Since you are too lazy to do it
  12. You admitting you dont read peoples posts, but still reply to them, explains why you post so much shit
  13. Not in the context that it was posted. The question came after a paragraph on the Democrats and a link to the Democrat nominees, and was following by naming a few. It was clear that the question was about the Democrats and you choose to ignore that and answer the question you wanted and then claim it is a legitimate answer.
  14. Doro asked a question and you answered a different question but that Doro's fault. That is some real Trump logic
  15. That may be a joke but I think it would take at least this many films to cover everything that happens in The Silmarillion.
  16. Not sure this is a good defense strategy
  17. Without him we would have missed out on so much of his fathers work.

    World War 3

    So Trump is the Joker, a psychotic criminal, finally something that I agree with
  19. cossieuk

    World War 3

    Trump is literally talking about doing things that would have him arrested and tried from war crimes and people are still defending him. Just what does he have to do for the GOP to say enough is enough
  20. cossieuk

    World War 3

    Trump thinks that he can just use Twitter instead of actually going to Congress
  21. cossieuk

    World War 3

    That is utter shite, you have absolutely no knowledge of the UK if you think that is true. You really need to stop drinking the Trump Kool-Aid it has rotted your brain
  22. cossieuk

    World War 3

    That's tomorrows issue, today he has change the narrative
  23. cossieuk

    World War 3

    Its also a great way to distract from his impeachment
  24. cossieuk

    World War 3

    Don't worry Mike Pompeo is committed to de-escalation. Just imagine what they would have done if the wanted to escalated the issue
