    one of the most unintentionally homophobic things I’ve ever read. At least I hope it’s unintentional.

    This is shameful. Why are politicians and bureaucrats unable to come up with a system when we have vaccines approved nearly 10 months?!

    I meant it as a joke, I didn’t think it was offensive to compare/associate someone’s role in sexual activity to their role in social settings, but I apologize if I was wrong

    kind of like a straight couple where someone would say she wears the pants in the relationship

    I figured you meant it as a joke that is why I gave you the benefit of the doubt and said it was unintentional. I will ask you why you’d make the joke about the “top” being the last name picked. I’ll answer it. It’s because in our society the last name comes from the father/man and you see the top as being more manly. That’s why it’s homophobic.

    So close the border, do not allow refugees from Afghanistan, but lift the ban on European travel.

    These are all things that Biden is regularly criticized for, typically by right wing, but some “centrist” love to join the choir every now and then.

    Right wingers are not clamoring for the borders to be closed? Asking not to accept refugees from Afghanistan, while clamoring for more war? Or they’re not clamoring for the bullshit you just posted?

    I would love to be able to stick to a point, unfortunately you right wing scum bags are always coming up with some bullshit.

    I really don’t see the relevance of closed borders and refugees from Afghanistan to accepting fully vaccinated Europeans into the country. The people complaining about this seem to be Europeans living in the US who can’t travel home because they won’t be allowed back into the US, not your typical RWNJ who hates immigrants.

    Making false equivalencies just fuels the fire, leading to the weekly three page TMB vs Jay Jay Okocha theatrics.

    I would trade all 35,000 people (excluding the Hispanics, surprisingly large Lao/Thai community, Indians, Creole, and African-Americans) in my country ass county for Afghan refugees. I am positive that it would be a huge net positive.

    What I posted had nothing to do with that.

    I don’t see what is BS about families of 9/11 victims being unable to commemorate their family, climate scientists unable to discuss climate change with peers at major conferences or people generally being trapped when they are contributing to the economy. Good for you though, you got a couple of likes.

    I don't know much about Afghan cuisine, so the Indian part made me think of like a curry gravy. Indian cuisine has lots of thick sauces that you could modify.

    Whoever was asking about Afghanistan books ( Dillingham i think) - A little over halfway through this. It's good as far as strictly the facts. There's pretty much zero analysis other than how incompetent we were/are

    Alternative to what? You presupposed they would fly. The point is that it is a blanket ban.

    There is a difference in that if you come from Mexico or Canada that you can’t come over the land border but can fly, but that’s not the point on the climate conference.

    In broader terms, if you want to deal with the substance of the policy and not nonsense, I’m all ears.

    The tweet you posted suggested that attending a climate conference is “essential travel.”

    it’s not. Hope that helps
