    My strategy certainly isn't banning speech and grabbing guns before the Democrats can do it. LOL (LIke I said, I can keep pointing this out as long as you like ...)

    The whole thread is right there for anyone to read for themselves. No "nutshell" required. (I can keep doing this all day, if you insist ...) It certainly isn't speech banning and gun grabbing. LOL.

    I'm sure it won't surprise you to discover that he's a speech-banning gun grabber, too. LMAO. That's pretty funny coming from an admitted gun-grabbing speech banner.

    Is it just me, or is anyone else having problems with the buttons linking to posts in this thread? Every time I click the "Go to first new post" button, it takes me to the first page of the thread instead of the first new post. Every time I click any of the "View post" buttons in quote boxes, it does the same thing (instead of taking me to the quoted post). It only happens for the buttons to or in this thread. Maybe the Unicode characters in the thread title are borking things ...

    Speaking of which, at the bottom of the OP article, there is the following link: Read more Dying ALS patient delivers passionate Medicade-for-All speech The link is to an article published a few months ago titled "Ady Barkan: Dying ALS patient delivers passionate speech on first day of Medicare-for-All hearings" (with the tagline "Ady Barkan delivered his speech to Congess using a text-to-voice programme"). So that is what is being spread on our toast today - while Trump & Co. futz around with speculative happy-talk about "potential moves" and "second-term projects" ...

    The Soviet Union refused to acknowledge that serial killers were even possible under communism. According to them, serial killers could only exist in degenerate capitalist societies. As a result, Andrei Chikatilo was able to murder 52 women and children from 1978 to 1990. There's a pretty good HBO movie about it called Citizen X. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1FSDYiEq70

    Certain responsibilities were not denied to the States. The States delegated certain responsibilities to the confederal government. That is not the same thing. And in any case, I have already pointed out (now for the third time) that the wholesale replacement of the confederal government was not necessary in order to deal with the repayment of war debts - let alone with the relatively more tractable issue of funding the confederal government's routine responsibilities as delegated to it by the several states. (And in this latter regard, if it ultimately turned out that they were not willing to do so ... well, then, so much the worse for the central government ... the states would simply have to resume those responsibilities for themselves ...) A State cannot insist on anything, only the individuals composing it can - and the individuals who composed the ratification conventions of the several states (many of whom were selected or assigned as delegates precisely because they already supported the Constitution) were assured that "of course" no such language was needed, because it was "obviously" implicit in the spirit of the document (not to mention explicit in the letter of the Declaration of Independence, which heavily informed all discussion on such matters at the time), and thus did not need repeating. (Similar logic was applied to soothe fears that nomenclature such as "the general welfare" might be abused, because any significant abuses as might be attempted were "obviously" not intended.) And none of that even begins to account for the fact that many of the individuals involved in deciding on ratification had strongly vested personal interests in the Constitution being ratified "as was" regardless of such concerns - not the least of whom was Robert Morris, one of the wealthiest men in America at the time, and a hugely influential supporter of the Constitution (which should surprise no one, given that he was known as the "Financier of the Revolution" and stood to enjoy an enormous windfall with its passage).

    Sorry, there was no mention of the regulation reductions in the initial tweet posted here. Seems like Trump is a little butthurt that he gave the auto industry a little "free market" room on emissions and the market decided to stick with reducing emissions anyway. Oh well.

    I don't see what's difficult about the concept - It could be something such as a one-time authorization, agreed to by the several states, to collect revenues sufficient to discharge the war debt in particular, but nothing further. As I noted, they were able to ratify and enforce the much broader taxation permitted by the Constitution. There is no reason to think that they could not have done something (on a limited, ad hoc and "close-ended" basis) without replacing the entire confederal government in one fell swoop. But of course, the Federalists had far greater ambitions than merely indulging fastidiousness over war debt ... You didn't cite vague and unspecified "future needs" as a justification for the usurpation of the Articles, so I didn't address them. But if the particular quotas and requisitions that were already in place for the purpose were insufficient to the routine business of the confederal government, then that is just what the convention of 1787 was ostensibly supposed to address (in which case I refer you to the penultimate sentence of my first paragraph). Yes, they did (in part due to cajoleries which were not borne out, such as the assurance that states would be permitted to withdraw from the union if they so chose) - and thereby saddled themselves with a federal government that was much more centralized and powerful than was needed in order merely and adequately to address the problem of revolution-era liabilities.

    I don't really think it's fake news, so much as it is just tentative and/or speculative. But whatever it is, I can't really sympathize much with Trump supporters who are outraged that anyone could take a story like this seriously. I mean, it's not like Trump hasn't taped a "KICK ME" sign to his own back when it comes to gun control issues ...
