    If Russia invades Ukraine pt 2

    This is the one time I'm going to agree with you. They're not Nazis. A lot of Ukrainians sided with the Germans because they didn't want to be under Stalin's thumb. Yes they use Nazi imagery. Not all countries have our take on WW2. And obviously they have no problem with a Jewish president. Not...

    Project 2025

    It's just a dumb wish list. It'd be nice if both parties stopped issuing crap like this. But you can rest assured that Donald Trump is not going to personally command the Department of Justice and he can't take away your pornos. Clarence Thomas would never agree.

    Supreme Court News

    They're in a huge bind in that they're getting forced into acting as legislators and not judges, and before an election. Neither side has a convincing argument. But if they kick it back down to the circuit court then the whole process starts over again. Very possible a narrow immunity is chosen...

    Supreme Court News

    I suspect the court is going to issue a severe reprimand to stop wasting their time. The one thing the SCOTUS hates more than anything is being treated like some trashy small claims court. They're not going to resolve the immunity claim and they're not going to let Trump be imprisoned for being...

    Politicians you admire

    I'll offer up an obscure one: Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker. He was a financial mastermind. He was fired by both Reagan and Obama for telling them what they didn't want to hear about the deficit and fiscal policy, even though their economic successes were largely due to him. Huge loss...

    A St. Louis restaurant imposes age restrictions: no women under 30 or men under 35

    National origin is the only other protected class. Not even gender is protected. Employees... totally different story. Virtually everyone is protected if you have over 20 employees.

    Politicians you admire

    People easily forget how bad Carter's presidency was. He got us into trouble with Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan... all of that originated from Mika Brzezinski's idiot father. Carter on the other hand definitely backed up all his talk post-presidency. He didn't cash in, he lives in a modest house, he...

    Fathers Day 2024

    Hooters is offering a buy one get one deal on wings! No proof of paternity or gender needed.

    Women to be drafted

    No. This is just a dumb culture war issue. Abolish the Selective Service itself. We have no use for it. If by some miracle we did half the chicks would be morbidly obese and immediately lose the war. I can't imagine the logistics of a weigh-in and kinda don't want to.

    Maine Republicans gather signatures to repeal national popular vote

    Ripping on the electoral college is the lazy man's excuse. The presidency is one small (actually usually very small) part of government. A nation which forgets that all politics is local is a nation doomed. On 99% of days the White House is just a reality show.

    Maine Republicans gather signatures to repeal national popular vote

    They actually don't unless it is a question of constitutionality. The Great Lakes Compact is totally legal and even includes Ontario and Quebec. Congress simply doesn't care and why should they? This national popular vote compact is a huge waste of time. It's dead on arrival. State legislatures...

    French Government Collapses Post EU Elections.

    I'm far from an expert on French politics but the demise of Ms. Le Pen never comes to pass. Macron's problems are way more fundamental than her. I do think Greens and such will jump to Macron so you're probably (maybe?) correct there but a vanquishing I do not see. He already has one large party...

    French Government Collapses Post EU Elections.

    One ironclad rule of politics is that the left (unless it's far-far-far left) will never show up for an EU election but the right will -- precisely because they hate the EU. It speaks to how weak a body it is. But when push comes to shove and it's time for the real national election, then the...

    Israel ~ Hamas War Saga

    You're taking two contradictory viewpoints. 1) Gazans are ruled by Hamas. Supposedly some vote 18 years ago means they have it coming and are complicit. Israel chose to leave. Hamas refuses to allow them to have another election. 2) Crimeans are ruled by Russia. It has been 10 years. Ukraine...

    Supreme Court News

    All I know is that in the aftermath of 9/11 he was ruthless and innocent people were unfairly linked to terrorist organizations. I think his current tenure as AG has shown him to be more litigious than even Janet Reno and I'll leave it at that. He should not be serving in government.

    Supreme Court News

    Do you have any idea how bad an appointment Garland would have been? The guy sat around for a decade compiling lists of everyone in America he suspected of being Muslim. He's a menace. That's not how a free country acts.

    Does the GOP dump trump now that he is a convicted felon?

    Say what you want about Trump -- he did conduct business by actually, you know, running businesses. It doesn't mean he's a great guy but this fantasy that Biden is some man of great virtue in comparison is insane. Even Barack Obama says so. The stuff with the credit card companies is not funny...

    Does the GOP dump trump now that he is a convicted felon?

    Biden is an adulterer, lies about his and his family's military service while voting for every war ever, has a long history of allowing credit card companies to charge usurious rates for his own benefit, has as many bogus "foundations" as Trump, falsely painted the man who accidentally killed...

    Does the GOP dump trump now that he is a convicted felon?

    I am in complete agreement with you about Trump University. Those are the people who deserve remediation. But that's not what he's being charged for. Instead he's being charged for what the easiest conviction is. Stormy Daniels is not a victim nor is this even close to the most egregious...

    Supreme Court News

    People don't understand -- the most common ruling out of the Supreme Court is 9-0. It works. And it works well. I'm not in love with every justice. I've never cared for Alito or Sotomayor and I think Roberts is mediocre, but if it ain't broke...
