Re: Here, have some more mercury for breakfast

No, the court doesn't state. That's the majority opinion written by right winger Scalia. It is not a consensus view.

Re: GoT 6/14/15

All of the frontal nudity was a body double with occasional CGI of Headey's head.

I guessed as much. There are more than a few scenes where the CGI work is rather apparent around her neckline.

Why can they not support lifting the cap on the Social Security deductions? The people making that kind of money can certainly afford it.

Re: Worried about Gates Foundation

The difference (as I see it) is that a private person (or even a corporation) can give as much of their own money as they want to charities, etc., and receiving nothing in return except that they feel good about it.
