Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

A lesser sidebar issue is that if Conyers is taken down because of a leaked confidential settlement, we need to see every single one of them.

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

Yeah, I'm not surprised the actual party doesn't want to oust Franken and Conyers (and Conyers is probably untouchable in general) but I expected more from liberals who had me convinced these past few weeks that we were actually going to start taking sexual harassment and abuse seriously only to giv...

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

Virtue-signalling internet lynch mobs continue to make me extremely uncomfortable, no matter where they lie on the political spectrum.

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself

I'm honestly a little surprised McConnell et al have condemned him as strongly as they have. They may hate Moore - he was never their guy, of course - but they really, really cannot afford to lose this seat.

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

The point is that calling these schmucks "Nazis" is like calling griefers in CoD "Green Berets". Let's just call a spade a spade here and refer to these Old Navy mosquito torch motherfuckers as "Wannazis". come on, man; the nazis around the time of the Beer Hall Putsch...

He's not addressing the 20 hour debate limit.

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

It's my understanding that the reconciliation rules limit the number of bills passed using that method—the fact that this failed under reconciliation does not eliminate it from future attempts, and even if it did, the fiscal year ends in like two months anyway. The one justification I could see for...

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

FTR while on some level I feel inclined to the smugness I felt when Scalia died because here, too, is a man who is making life actively worse for a large number of people simply through inertia (IOW, retire bitch), there are two mitigating factors 1) McCain is a legit war hero whereas Scalia never d...

Yeah, Up Simba pretty much sums up my feelings on McCain and he has done literally nothing since the 2000 election to change that view

Re: What about a thread for good news?

A question to which Thomas has an answer, because even if it were possible to get inside Madison's head, he's not the only person who ratified the Constitution and in the end we're left with the text. Thomas isn't saying parents ought to control the speech children hear because the Founders believed...

Re: What about a thread for good news?

Thomas in Brown v. EMA is just pure Originalism. It's not going to convince you because you, like me, don't accept the premise of Originalism, but give him credit for consistency.

Re: What about a thread for good news?

Gorsuch specifically took no part (it's in the text) though yeah I think he just wasn't confirmed in time. Anyway, it could mean a variety of things, ranging from good to extremely good. On the merely "good" end, it's just affirming the lower court, saying that race cannot be a primary fac...
