  1. U.S. Elections: Is Keeping The SC Worth Risking A Dictatorship?

    Tywin, Do you want it there.
  2. U.S. Elections: Is Keeping The SC Worth Risking A Dictatorship?

    Kalbear, We need a Congress with the balls to defund a conflict they didn't approve.
  3. U.S. Elections: Is Keeping The SC Worth Risking A Dictatorship?

    I see what y'all mean about the thread title. It reminds me of James Petigru's quote, "South Carolina... too small for a republic... too large for an asylum."
  4. U.S. Elections: Is Keeping The SC Worth Risking A Dictatorship?

    I've been calling for a Constitutional Convention for more than a decade.
  5. U.S. Elections: Is Keeping The SC Worth Risking A Dictatorship?

    AMP, If not civilain control, who would be in control? I had a great title for the thread but someone got there before me.
  6. U.S. Elections: Apocalypse upon the horizon

    I've raised the point about the SCOTUS and Trump's less than inspiring record on which to discuss judicial nominees with some of his supporters on Facebook. The response is handwaving dismissals. LoR, Butterbumps makes an excellent point. What binds Trump to that list? How do you know he will not "play hardball" and veto everything coming from Congress until his nominee gets chosen? Trump likes to play that way.

    Skynjay, I find Jim Rome irritating in a way very similar to Trump.
  8. U.S. Elections: Apocalypse upon the horizon

    Exactly. I seriously doubt Pres. Trump will be nominating members of the Federalist Society if he likes the Kelo decision. Actually, that news is particularly depressing knowing that no matter who is likely to win I'm unlikely to like where they go judicially.
  9. U.S. Elections: Apocalypse upon the horizon

    I don't find him entertaining, at all. Maybe it's just me but I've never found Trump anything but irritating.

    FNR, Breeders of Racehorses use inbreeding to accomplish their task. Should Trump have married his sister to "keep the genes pure"?
  11. U.S. Elections: Apocalypse upon the horizon

    Agreed. There is nothing to indicate either Clinton is a "Psychopath".
  12. SpaceX--Spacecraft, rockets, and Mars II

    Musk is doing this because he thinks it is imporant and he wants to. That said Musk is helping to create infrastructure that could make Space profitable. If Space becomes profitable it will truely become a new frontier.
  13. SpaceX--Spacecraft, rockets, and Mars II

    KDNW, If people can find a way to make money in space, space exploration will ramp up. Depending on government largesse is always dangerous.

    OGE, Support from conservatives for existing entitlements is fundamentally inconsistent with "no big government" rhetoric. I love "Roosevelt Security" and "JohnsonCare". It really drives that point home.

    Some are, some aren't. It is code language for "stuff we don't like" for many. Look at the "keep your hands off my Medicare" signs in the lead up to the ADA vote. It is very inconsistent.
