    You wish! However they do talk about us all on the secret mentor's site, perhaps you could apply.


    You're 13 years to late mate.

    Good information. It is concerning how mainstream media represents US politics worldwide. There is divide in our Liberal party. Most represent is with respect and good intent. Unfortunately it is usually only the extreme, radical liberalist we see on TV or in the news. For example, at Jude Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing protester were trying to block the hearing, there to make as much of a fuss as possible. How is this productive? It got so bad with peoples actions that there were arrests. It is still a question of contention whether some of the more extreme protestors were paid to be there. Just sad.

    That's the thing with fundamental apathy though.

    It's never too late to not be bothered...

    I doubt we'd be allowed on here to elaborate but I know exactly what he means. It saddens me greatly.

    I'm not sure what Liberal Party you are talking about? I looked it up and all I could see is the New York Liberal Party. Both your Republican Party and Democrat Party are very conservative compared to most political parties.

    Huh. I can't see it either, and I bet the OP can't either. I've been here a few years, how do you get access to it?

    It always kind of both saddens and amuses me when Democrats propose something that would be probably be considered center-right in most countries, and Republicans call them radical communists for it. Our politics in the US are so weird.

    Is it still a requirement to be a supporting member too?

    One of the benefits, there are more than you imagine. No ads for a start!

    I don't mind the ads tbh - them being there puts pennies in the coffers and some of them are downright funny.



    Edit: I think it's also one benefit I couldn't take advantage of - me in a wig really isn't going to fly...

    I don't have to work very hard at all to get a euphemism out of that...

    The school I train at is certainly not male dominated.
