Re: The Darker Side of the News

Can't read sarcasm. I hope you realize the rocks thing was basically a mockery of the "arm the teachers" idea. If teachers are armed, what will happen is the gunmen will shoot the teachers first. What you need is to arm the students too, which would have the bonus of eliminating school bul...

Re: The Darker Side of the News

After Columbine, my high school required everyone to have transparent or mesh backpacks. It was widely viewed as a joke, since people still had purses and if you really wanted to conceal something you put it in a 3 ring binder.

Re: Census Dickery

From Census.gov Are undocumented residents (aliens) in the 50 states included in the apportionment population counts? Yes, all people (citizens and noncitizens) with a usual residence in the 50 states are to be included in the census and thus in the apportionment counts. So it looks like illegal im...

Re: Trump presidency

I think S brought it up for lots of reasons. One of which is to highlight that we seem to treat black people worse than actual nazis.

Fun tidbit, in WWII we had German prisoners of war in the US. Some got jobs locally. They took the bus to get there. And guess who got to sit in the front?

Re: Trump presidency

But you still need a judge to use common sense. Say you set the age of consent at 17, no Romeo and Juliet laws. A 16 year old girl is a year ahead and a freshman in college, and is dating a 17 year old boy. So far both minors, legal. The boy turns 18. So now it's not legal?
