The EC was a vestige of the founding of the nation where a significant portion of the population was enslaved. It doesn’t serve a purpose to elect a president via direct elections, which is how every other elected position is elected (governors, mayors, senators, congressmembers, etc.)

Direct elections work everywhere else, but not for the president? Yeah, that’s not a solid argument in favor of the EC.

Things white supremacists think about:

DNA tests to prove their virtue and purity - except the vast majority of folks end up revealing that they’re mutts. They have DNA tests that show that they’re not as white as they think they are. When posting to their racist sites that they were taking DNA tests and then asked for the results - the outcomes are rather funny as they’re outed by their DNA as the bigoted dumbasses we know they are. And the purity ponies force ‘em out because they’re not racist enough (eugenics never went away).

DNA tests to prove that African Americans aren’t entitled to anything because they have DNA from Europeans - ignoring that white slave owners raped enslaved women, seeing them as disposable playthings for their amusement. The children of those sex crimes would of course carry European genes in their DNA.

What brings both of these together is that the bigot brigade thinks that DNA can help value signal their bigotry and deprive others of their rights because they aren’t who they say they are.

A high percentage of Texas RWNJs are descended from local fundy preachers and football coaches. I believe we have had generations of inadvertent inbreeding, since a small town or fundy suburban couple can easily fall in love and get married without knowing that they are biological half-siblings.

You know, I really did want to give Bernie a chance in 2016. Thought maybe he was too left to be elected President but I thought he could influence the conversation and you know what, I’ll concede, he did do some good things. His influence in 2016 wasn’t all bad but a lot of it was and a lot of it starts with him and himself. He’s like Trump. He gives himself one set of rules and everyone else another.

Let’s face it…Bernie has pretty much been a Dem backbencher his whole tenure in the Senate, because he really hasn’t got shit to his name there. But, once he decided to run for POTUS last time and build his public profile up (and got a bunch of adoring fans, most of whom seems to be white and middle-class), his ego got hooked on it.

That’s why he’s doing it again, for the ego boost; he (and the Bros) also seems to be hoping that Trump so completely craters the country, he can sweep ahead of the growing Dem 2020 pack as the Socialist Savior (and, frankly, that’s what I think the plan for them in 2016 was all along). There’s too much of an intersection between Bernie’s 2016 campaign and the Russian interference to be a coincidence and I fear there will be more of the same for next year.

I don’t recall him saying anything about Garland. I guess because Garland couldn’t belch out why we need free college for all, he wasn’t worth fighting for.

Ok, this seems big:

“There is an ecosystem around that that includes crimes that harm people, and for those issues, I do not believe that anybody who hurts another human being or profits off of their exploitation should be free of criminal prosecution,” the California senator said. “But when you’re talking about consenting adults, we should consider that we can’t criminalize consensual behavior.”

Sex workers have long criticized Harris for her role in marginalizing their community by conflating sex work with sex trafficking.

I don’t think I’ve heard anyone outside the libertarian fringes talk about decriminalizing sex work.

Not that I know. The Republican Straw Poll was a way to draw attention and raise money. Not sure the Iowa Democratic Party wanted to copy their fellow Iowans.

I know it was mostly a fundraising event. But it did often serve to clarify the race early on. A bad showing there was usually enough to get a couple candidates to drop out, especially in years where there were big fields.

What I have never liked is how companies have harassed employees who want to form unions. I’ll never get why so called libertarians accept that shit even if they’re instinctively anti-union. If the employees don’t want to form a union, that’s their right too but they should be able to form one if they vote on it. My grandfather’s first job at the NLRB was to be an observer when employees voted on whether they wanted it or not.

Good news, but unfortunately about 45 votes short of a veto-proof majority.

It will be curious how the Courts deal with Congress passing a resolution revoking the national emergency. Between the resolution and the prior funding bills, it definitely puts Trump in Jackson’s lowest ebb:

When the President takes measures incompatible with the expressed or implied will of Congress, his power is at its lowest ebb, for then he can rely only upon his own constitutional powers minus any constitutional powers of Congress over the matter. Courts can sustain exclusive presidential control in such a case only by disabling the Congress from acting upon the subject. [Footnote 4/4] Presidential claim to a power at once so conclusive and preclusive must be scrutinized with caution, for what is at stake is the equilibrium established by our constitutional system.

There were a couple of liquor stores near my high school that would sell without checking ID. They’d get their licenses suspended every so often but it wasn’t so bad. I didn’t know who to ask while I was in high school, but when I was working at a pizza place in college a few guys that I went to high school with were slinging weed on the side. They were also able to get heavier stuff, but I don’t really remember them getting anything.

A few immediate thoughts:

1. It feels like whoever fed him the info also fed him this bullshit “witness testing” line.
2. Witness “testing” usually arises in cross-examination, when the person can actually respond. I mean, what the fuck is being tested by this one-sided tweet?
3. Gaetz is objectively fucking stupid.

Saw that on ABC news: sad that someone that young (46) has to deal with that serious a disease. OTOH, treatments for MS have made tremendous strides, it’s no longer an inescapable sentence of slow doom. Good luck to her.

Montel Williams was only 43 when he was diagnosed.

I was trying real hard to figure out how to strike the right tone on it. She’s mentally handling it as well as anyone could, and definitely modern treatments will help her stay in her kid’s/kids’ (I don’t know how many she has) lives. And she looked great. But having it already affect her speech and movements is probably already frustrating.

A girl friend’s daughter was diagnosed when she was about 20. 15 years later, she is married, a mother, and has a challenging career.

I was listening to MSNBC and Nicole Wallace was funny as hell…he really fucked himself and doesn’t fully appreciate how much yet. There are already calls for the Ethics Committee to investigate him.

That more or less matches my experience, but tobacco and alcohol use by teens has been declining steadily, while “harder” drug use remains steady.

Gaetz is engaging in “witness testing” for the simple reason that Congressional testimony doesn’t follow the rules a real courtroom would follow, else Matty would get th everloving shit beat out of him by the judge the moment he started “testing” a witness by badgering him over alleged extramarital affairs and the possibility of divorce if his wife were to learn about them.

re: #225 KGxvi

Good news, but unfortunately about 45 votes short of a veto-proof majority.

It will be curious how the Courts deal with Congress passing a resolution revoking the national emergency. Between the resolution and the prior funding bills, it definitely puts Trump in Jackson’s lowest ebb:

That’s my take as well, that this is significant mostly as direct evidence for the courts that Trump’s declaration is an unprecedented usurpation of congress’s expressly voted desire.

I’m trying to convince my libertarian friends who want to legalize sex work to get on board with the union that sex workers have in the UK and Netherlands. But they’re vehemently anti-union too.

Legal and unionized is best. New Zealand is that way too.

re: #134 TedStriker

Let’s face it…Bernie has pretty much been a Dem backbencher his whole tenure in the Senate, because he really hasn’t got shit to his name there. But, once he decided to run for POTUS last time and build his public profile up (and got a bunch of adoring fans, most of whom seems to be white and middle-class), his ego got hooked on it.

That’s why he’s doing it again, for the ego boost; he (and the Bros) also seems to be hoping that Trump so completely craters the country, he can sweep ahead of the growing Dem 2020 pack as the Socialist Savior (and, frankly, that’s what I think the plan for them in 2016 was all along). There’s too much of an intersection between Bernie’s 2016 campaign and the Russian interference to be a coincidence and I fear there will be more of the same for next year.

I don’t trust Bernie, his campaign, or the Bros at all.

OK, so maybe a bit of drunk posting, but was talking with colleagues about leadership and vision with respect to my organization. Bernie doesn’t have it, either.
