    This is from a while ago, but I do have a question. It mentions he had 18 complaints against him and Tou Thao had six. How many complaints does your "typical" cop get? I'm sure there are spurious...

    By random coincidence, I happened to see a National Review article on the subject:

    Oh--really?

    If that's the case, then I guess that answers that question.

    Here's a question. He was charged with murder, right? My understanding was that for something to be murder, it has to be premeditated--there is little indication the cop was actually trying to kill...

    He was only formally charged earlier today. Didn't the riots happen before that?

    But is this something that's happening generally or not? You talk about two parties and dramatic divide, and that's true--in the US. What of other countries? A lot of countries have a lot more than...

    Is this confession of hers on tape so it can be verified?

    And if it is, do we have proof other than her that it is the truth?

    It depends on what you mean by "decided."

    Do I think that the SCOTUS will issue a decision? Almost certainly. While there have been cases that were delayed until the next turn for re-argument...

    Technically speaking, it's three cases--Vance, Mazars, and Deutsche Bank. It's just that Mazars and Deutsche Bank are so similar that they got consolidated into one decision (consolidating two cases...

    I am curious as to how many of those said the same thing about Obama, as I'm sure there's a section of the population that believes every president (or leader) is anointed by God to at least some...

    As I understand it, betting works essentially like this.

    What the person taking bets wants to do is to make it so they can come out ahead no matter who wins. Now suppose there's a clear favorite,...

    They're mostly a good gauge as to what people think will happen, given that they're putting down actual money for it.

    The thing is, unless he dies or something, we know Trump will get the nomination. We don't know for sure yet that Biden will. There's therefore reason to be cautious when voting for Biden because,...

    48 out of 50 states had laws prohibiting the desecration of the American flag (this would obviously include both liberal and conservative states), the SCOTUS still struck them all down as violations...

    No, as you suggest, what would happen is the electors wouldn't ever be given to Trump in the first place, but would go to Biden.


    Lots of states "nullified" their state's actual choice in the...

    States don't do that, though. What they do (those that "bind" their electors anyway) is require them to vote for their pledged candidate, i.e. require the Republican electors to vote for the...

    I don't know if that's so much the story flying under the radar as it is Biden himself flying under the radar. He's been kind of a nonentity in general in the news after Sanders conceded outside of...

    Well the thing is, faithless electors typically don't vote for the other major candidate (i.e. a Democrat elector voting for the Republican or vice versa), but some third person altogether. In fact,...
