Re: Migrants are now EVERYWHERE

All things being equal, if these migrants were offered residence in Russia, China, North Korea OR USA, Germany, Holland where do you think they would choose in the greatest numbers and why?

The latter - because those countries offer [more]

Re: Trump just as rich in S&P 500 index?

As I mentioned in the other thread you posted, that's a pretty flawed analysis - because it doesn't take into account the fact that the Donald has paid his rather extravagant living expenses out of that money as well. For him to still have the same [more]

Re: Migrants are now EVERYWHERE

By incredible numbers China, Russia and North Korea are not destination counties for any of these migrants. Why not, as they are certainly easier to get into?

Clearly, China and North Korea are much farther away and harder to get [more]

Re: GMO fear question

It's very probable we find out down the road these kinds of GMOs are less nutritious than conventional hybrids - since when scientists try and optimize one area usually another area is foregone in the pursuit of that. There is evidence some [more]

Re: YES! Kim Davis jailed!

Attorneys for jailed Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis have proposed allowing her out of custody if she agrees to not interfere with marriage licenses for gay couples.

I am glad to read that, since it indicates that her attorneys are [more]

Re: Trump's Billions

I read that article, but it's pretty flawed - in that the author completely failed to account for the fact that Trump has spent a great deal of money on personal expenses over the last several decades. He's had a pretty flamboyant lifestyle - and [more]

Did I just miss it? Supposedly all the assistants were called to court, and they were reportedly refusing also. Did they get jailed too?

Re: KY Clerk: Arrested for Contempt

Was it also a federal court ruling that allows some states to not to expand Medicaid?

The 0bama administration does, routinely.

Can you cite an example? Off the top of my head, when they lost the court decisions on their immigration deferment program, they complied with the court order forthwith - notwithstanding that [more]

Re: YES! Kim Davis jailed!

I wonder if she would have a case against her legal counsel. They are NOT serving her best interests at all. On the contrary, they seem to be using her for their own purposes (can't they be disbarred for that??).

They should have (at [more]

Re: legal question

IIRC, not all pretextual stops are permissible.

That got me curious, so a quick search or two revealed that SCOUTS decided this issue in Whren v. U.S. (1997). Basically, there is no federal Constitutional problem with [more]

Re: KY Clerk: Arrested for Contempt

Yep - she's off to jail. Presumably until she agrees to issue the licenses or resign. Pretty unsurprising result, notwithstanding the fact that the plaintiffs had asked for monetary penalties instead of jail time.

"Fishing" is looking for something to get someone on.

Oh. Well, I don't think that's illegal. As long as the police go about looking for something in a legal way (ie. pursuant to a warrant or probable cause), they should be [more]

Re: legal question

Which makes sense to me. But then how is that not "fishing"? (Just looking for something to get someone on.) I though that was verboten.

Yup, and if the Round-Up resistant pollen blows over and pollinates your your corn, Monsanto might sue you for using their patent.

And if you look at research on them one possibility is that they're not distinct separate species of bird.
