Over 200 cyclists turn out for Milwaukee’s second annual World Naked Bike Ride 2022


Weather didn’t deter bikers from showing up and showing out at Milwaukee’s second annual World Naked Bike Ride on Saturday.

As clouds rolled in over the city, over 200 riders still congregated to celebrate the city’s nudist event of the summer. The clothing-optional, “bare as you dare” bike ride began at 4 p.m., with the route passing the Milwaukee Art Museum, the War Memorial Center and going around the Lakeshore State Park twice...

To post the below in this thread, is appropriate, as it's about the USA and it's decline into 30's conservatism that's being discussed.

Now that Clarence Thomas has helped overturn Roe v. Wade, he's eager to roll back the clock on other American civil rights.

Precis:  Following Roe’s demise, Clarence Thomas eyes new targets.

Content:  ... Thomas added that Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell deserve to be overturned because they were “demonstrably erroneous decisions.”

For folks who may not immediately recognize the names of these cases, let’s quickly review what Thomas was arguing.

Griswold v. Connecticut: In 1965, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 7-to-2 ruling, struck down a Connecticut law that restricted married couples’ access to birth control. The court majority said such statutes are impermissible because they violate Americans’ right to privacy.

Lawrence v. Texas: In 2003, in a 6-3 decision, the justices ruled that anti-sodomy laws are unconstitutional. In the process, the high court, for the first time, made sexual activity between same-sex partners legal in the United States.

Obergefell v. Hodges: In 2015, in a 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court declared that the right to get married cannot be limited solely to straight couples. In the process, the justices brought marriage equality to every state in the nation. ...

So what you are saying is that Obama and Clinton somehow stole money whilst they were running for Office (Hillary was never President). But that Trump failed?

By your own metric, you've proven my point, which has always been, that Trump is a Dolt.

From NZ - in the USA thread. 


The (NZ)Government has quietly designated two United States far-right organisations, the Proud Boys and The Base, as terrorist organisations.

The legal designation of the two groups – which would have been signed off by the prime minister – was made on June 20, and made public in the New Zealand Gazette on June 27. The decision was not otherwise announced by the Government.

The designation means people who recruit for the groups or provide them with material support could be prosecuted under the Terrorism Suppression Act.

There was no immediately available information for why the designation was made. Comment has been sought from both the prime minister’s office and the police.

The Proud Boys are a fascist organisation aligned with former US President Donald Trump, who were part of an attack of the US Capitol in Washington DC on January 6, 2021.  ...  &c.


This could be something to do with the occurrences, wherein dolts film themselves in the commission of crimes, referred to in this thread...
