    If we do that, I think we'd have to reconfigure the powers of the president a good amount. Normally prime ministers actually have little in the way of "official" powers like the president does. Their...

    That's not why they designed the electoral college that way. They went with the electoral college because it allowed the states with a lot of slaves to use those slaves for voting power despite not...

    I don't really see much comparison between Mussolini and Trump outside of the fact liberals don't like them. Heck, even if we narrow ourselves down to "prime ministers of Italy within the last...

    I expect this capitalization was just a typo, but I still found it funny.

    He actually debated Christopher Hitchens on the existence of God back in 2007. I have no idea how good of a job he did, though.

    Oh good golly yes. It's all been about impeachment and as that's a subject I don't know much about, nor particularly care much about*, I've been mostly ignoring those. I'll look in some occasionally...

    What exclusion? They are hardly excluded from sports. As far as I am aware no one has complained about male-to-female transgenders competing against other men.

    It was difficult to interpret your statement in another fashion.


    I can understand the degree of "you don't have power to remedy the situation so you can calm down about it"--heck, I've paid...

    I don't see how this even begins to actually answer oxmixmudd's point. While the example he picked may have been extreme and an example of Godwin's Law, he's still got a point as to how what you end...

    The fact there is actual debate about whether marijuana should be legal or not while tobacco (which has fewer medical benefits and is much more harmful) is legal seems... dissonant.

    Because if someone is making donations to a group you disagree with, that's a plausible reason to not want to give them money that can end up donated to those groups.

    Sort of like how when people...

    It looks like there were various "pro-LGBT" laws they opposed, but the various examples I saw were all from over a decade ago.

    Your post is worded oddly, especially with the multiple instances of "not" obscuring its meaning ("not entirely NOT a socialist country with a central bank that doesn't") that I am honestly confused...

    This is a nonsense argument. Nobody has argued that no group on their "hate group" list is a hate group. They are saying that the SPLC has, in addition to listing actual hate groups, listed a bunch...

    Is it even particularly common for the Supreme Court to outright dismiss a lawsuit? Because remembering, this isn't a ruling as to whether they should win or lose the lawsuit, it's a requested ruling...

    Evening isn't the start of a day in the Jewish reckoning; Sundown is. "Evening" is a vague term and can refer to times before and after sundown.

    There are two additional reasons we know this was...

    While I think the lawsuit is silly, I fully support the SCOTUS here. I do not think it is their place to intervene on something like this.


    Dramatically different. The tobacco companies got in...

    Even if we are only counting what other people can do (i.e. not counting resignation, as that's the personal decision of the judge), it is possible to impeach any federal judge. Granted, it's a...

    Advocating for the performance of abortions would disqualify someone for communion, no doubts bout it. But being "pro-choice" doesn't inherently mean that. Believing that abortion should be permitted...

    Shouldn't it be "Other" for Democrats, not "Write-In"? There are definitely going to be more than just those 4 on the primary ballots.

    Barring something crazy occurring, I wouldn't vote for Trump...
