The comments...

Will H.
+ I don't know if it needs to be that sort of thing. I *DO* know that the guy that shot Castile didn't go to the firing [. . .]
greginak

Sorry...sorry....I shouldn't steal the righteous thunder of the real victims.

Will H.

They actually learn that in the academic criminal justice classes prior to becoming eligible for academy training. CRJ 101.

DavidTC
+ So, you've decided to just smoothly move from 'The executive order didn't discriminate on the basis of religion' to 'the executive order did discriminate on [. . .]
Will H.

My mistake.
It was Carlos V, Felipe's father, who ordained the New Laws.

"While I disapprove of this, Both Sides Do It."

greginak
+ While i stand by my "ugghh" from above and think this was stuupid thing to do. Lets keep some perspective. Emmit Till's memorial was apparently [. . .]
Will H.
+ Mushy excuses for not appointing a special prosecutor to investigate what is practically certain vote fraud is commonplace in some parts. The really bad part is [. . .]
George Turner
+ Well be confused no longer. Some Christians or Jews put up a stone tablet that were carved with the ten commandments (there were originally [. . .]
Joe Sal

I seem to recall you commented on disarming the police a few years ago.

I'm not even mad at this point, just confused.

George Turner
+ This just in: It's perfectly Constitutional for the US to bar entry on the basis of religion, nationality, or political beliefs. We've done [. . .]
Troublesome Frog
+ If there was a way for statewide officials to manipulate the vote at that level, doesn't it seem like they might already be doing it [. . .]
Will H.
+ To apply a heavy thumb to the scales of justice is the role of a court, and little else. The United States is, I believe, the [. . .]
George Turner
+ I don't think anyone would put up a statue of King Philip II outside of Spain, and certainly not in the South. "Enslave the [. . .]
Kazzy

@joe-sal

"...I’m going all in with kazzy."

Huh?

DavidTC
+ There is no religious discrimination in the ban. In fact, it doesn’t even mention any religion or include any religious terms. It certainly did mention specific [. . .]
+ Given that this post appears to have elicited a subtle death threat aimed at me personally and other people like me, I'm inclined to agree. [. . .]
Will H.
+ Personally, I see a statue of Edward Coke or Joseph Story as more appropriate. Maybe even Felipe Segundo. Hammurabi. I don't place Moses in the same [. . .]
Joe Sal
+ I'm all for deconstructing to the local condition. I would say it helps reduce the fear, and improve familiarity. But even enforcement within familiar settings, [. . .]
Will H.

I thought the Heathens moved to . . .
No, that was the Nordiques.

George Turner
+ Well, look at how well Europe cleaned up their heathen problems in the Middle Ages. By the 1700's, heathens were few and far between [. . .]

I hold a profound hope that this comment is an attempt at humor.

George Turner
+ There are heathens among us, people in the service of Satan and the forces of darkness, who should be burned at the stake. A [. . .]
George Turner
+ Ossoff's fundraising was from Hollywood. In 2018 there will be more than one house race to fund. Washington Examiner: Democrats had the worst May [. . .]
DavidTC
+ Uh, no. The Democratic National Committee has seen low fundraising. If by 'low' you utterly forget that they exist only to elect the president, which means [. . .]
Will H.
+ That is an interesting observation: ... aggressively parsing all her actions to magnify her role as an agent of [the Establishment side of the Ds] There is [. . .]
Will H.
+ I agree with that. At first, I thought the Patriot Act was a horrible thing due to the sharp erosion of rights. These days, I'm more inclined [. . .]
Will H.

The claim is that Reagan was as much a reset as Trump is, and every bit as loose with the truth.

Will H.
+ There have been a number of studies as to what the optimal number of police officers are for any given area, and the results are [. . .]
Dark Matter
+ The Democrats are the reason why we can’t have nice things...Oh, I think it's basic to the human condition. The GOP didn't behave [. . .]
DavidTC
+ I remember thinking that about previous Presidents’ exe orders. Don’t get worked up over something over which you’d give a pass to a generic Dem [. . .]
gregiank

Uggghhhhh.....People?!?....sigh

Saul Degraw
+ I remember people talking about the software when there were a bunch of issues with swing shifting a few years ago and public pressure caused [. . .]
gregiank
+ Still, it's far more likely to "find" votes in a purple state then one that has one predominant party. Not that "finding" votes seems [. . .]
Dark Matter

We're talking about in the context of eliminating the Electoral College, so all that matters is the popular vote for the nation.

George Turner

And yet Democratic fundraising is at a near all-time low, levels not seen since the 90's.

+ Having spectacularly bad laws still on the books is hardly inconsistent with having the same rule as lots of other states, sadly. Of course NC [. . .]

At current growth rates, we're only about 15 years from talking about California vs Vermont :^)

Troublesome Frog
+ It is dangerous to have narrow regions enact policy tailored to their self interest which is highly unpopular to everyone else. It’s dangerous to [. . .]
gregiank
+ Since Cali is a massively Dem state it is unlikely to be at play and therefore an unlikely target for fraud. A smaller purple state [. . .]
Dark Matter
+ Holy conspiracy theory Batman! ([citation needed, and not to GOP fever-dream websites])No link, just me reading the math. 1) Florida 2000 was a great [. . .]
+ My reaction to that article was kind of like years back when I read the title for a very esoteric seminar in genetics (we were [. . .]
dragonfrog
+ Police uniforms should also be like sports uniforms, with their badge number as visible as the player number - no more mask of anonymity during [. . .]
Morat20
+ I think you'd be better off with a deliberate return to Peelian Principles, really. Second would be entirely severing the police funding scheme from ticket revenue [. . .]
Nevermoor
+ I'm envisioning single-payer as Medicare-for-all. So you immediately get the 50% cost reduction vs. private, and immediately get the 10-15% overhead savings. Plus [. . .]
Nevermoor
+ Not only that, the founders who designed that system had no possible way of knowing exactly how large the spread between large and small states [. . .]
