Re: Crime and Punishment: Oklahoma (& Texas) style!

Nominating Thomas is about the only good thing the HW Administration ever did. Gorsuch is looking decent so far. Getting rid of Kennedy will help, but things will really be improved when we get rid of the other kooks on the court. Thomas' dissent in Raich was a masterpiece. Wickard is an abomination.

Re: Elon Musk Is In Bed With Crooks

When the intermittentancy and day/night are included in the cost of solar energy it becomes cost prohibitive for general energy production. No, it depends on location. Batteries get cheaper every year, and so does solar. Yes....

Re: Sessions - Steal Their Stuff

More from the WaPo
In 2014, federal law enforcement officers took more property from citizens than burglars did. State and local authorities seized untold millions more.

It is like having a license to steal.

Re: We Know Quite A Bit About Addiction.

What we are seeing here is the end of an era. Kids are taking a different view of Prohibition than their parents did. So do I expect to change the minds of confirmed Prohibitionists? Of course not.
