    US Politics: A Feast for Crows

    I'm strongly against expanding the House as I believe that increasing the size of the body would (further) diminish its power and further empower the executive branch. I actually think it is already probably already too big to be all that effective. That said, I don't agree with how Senators are apportioned either.

    US Politics: Four Days and Counting

    Well exactly. And the existing precedents uphold this. Roberts does NOT want a Constitutional crisis. Agreed.

    Which has been answered..... I mean, there are shades of Marbury that will come up if it actually happened, which is actually....unsettling.

    I had a similar experience in 2016. Last year, for the mayor's race, I waltzed right in. I have a colleague in Brooklyn who has been on line for 2 hours.....

    US Politics: Four Days and Counting

    We waited an hour in Manhattan. Line was wrapped all the way around the block....saw the same at other polling places we passed, so may just depend.

    What Do You Think Cultural Appropriation Is?

    Totally, and not like there was a "free" market when it came to music in any event. Payola was TOTALLY a thing, and until Soundscan started accurately reporting actual sales, record stores self-reported, and did so in a way that strangely enough disadvantaged artists of color. If you look at chart history, once you get to the Soundscan era, almost immediately rap starts charting in the top 40....funny how that worked.

    U.S. Politics: One Wave, Two Waves, Red Waves, Blue Waves

    Oh totally, and flies in the face of the understood meaning of "jurisdiction" (like first day law school type stuff). Because I sure as heck bet that the proponents of this ridiculous argument believe that the US has "jurisdiction" in the broad sense over undocumented persons.

    Careerchat III

    I would NOT worry about what your work experience looks like vis a vis law school. At all.
  12. I am not disagreeing with any of this. But I do think it is fair to be measured in considering all of this. Also, I have to say, if this is the straw that breaks your back on Kavanaugh you haven't been paying attention.

    My new daughter

  14. Yes - I was more saying if his eventual response is that he doesn't remember anything, he probably doesn't. Look I'm biased towards believing her. Because I know that is my bias, I am approaching the whole situation with healthy skepticism.
  15. Agree with this. Lie detector tests are utter junk science.
