  1. I've been saying that for ages. It's not a good plan, but it is hardly the socialist takeover of healthcare Republicans painted it to be. They could easily fix it. But they've made their bed.
  2. The other dude mentioned in the article, Juan Thompson, is a leftist for sure. Slate called him a "Leftist fabulist" here: http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/03/03/leftist_fabulist_juan_thompson_arrested_for_some_jcc_threats.html So I think it's relatively safe to say that it wasn't Trump supporters doing this, and in fact it appears to be people who are opposed to Trump who are doing it, probably to prop up the notion that "Trump's America" is one where Jewish community centers are targeted for violence and vandalism, along with all the other grade-A horse **** that was being pimped right after the election and inauguration. And I think it ought to be condemned as the dangerous fraud that it is.
  3. Moreover, it is the better result to have lawyers willing to represent those who everyone else would write off. Witness Steven Avery.
  4. You know what you call a Republican? A Democrat who just got his tax bill. You know what you call a Democrat? A Republican who just got arrested.
  5. Interesting title for an article that wasted not one pixel of print on the actual 2nd amendment argument. No, I'm not watching the video. I also think the premise is flawed. It is precisely because of watching the effect our drug laws have on black men primarily in this country that I am in favor of legalization, opposed to private prisons (and, not for nothing, private parole and probation services, something nobody talks about but which is a way bigger problem than prisons), opposed to the death penalty and in favor of treatment protocols. It was precisely the institutionalized racial disparity that awakened me to those issues. I'm concerned about the fact that we have institutionalized the breakup of families and love the fact that Tulsi Gabbard has introduced a bill to legalize marijuana under the theory, not that it simply imprisons people wrongfully, but in fact that it breaks up families and removes fathers from their children. That is not to say we don't have a lot of double standards on race issues in this country. But pretending it's all about race is an exercise in reductionism. It's surface level reasoning (par for the course for cable news, but still). I'm not the only conservative who feels this way, by the way, and it is a huge reason a lot of us vote Libertarian more than Republican. Libertarians, for all their many faults, recognize the problems inherent in our criminal justice system and seek to reform them.
  6. You'd best be leaving Variety Playhouse alone too.........
  7. That gif made me for real.
  8. That must be it. I remember it was a huge dustup at the time.
  9. Fair enough. I don't think the author of that article had those folks in mind.
  10. The first is a matter of opinion. The second ignores that all SC nominees are political appointments that largely don't reflect the will of the people.
  11. Who was it here who got a case of the vapors over that word? It was a few years ago but I forgot.
  12. Let me suggest that results-based solutions are unlikely to materialize when the party wanting other results is in power.
