    More than 1 million voters switch to GOP in warning for Dems https://apnews.com/article/2022-midterm-elections-biden-covid-health-presidential-e50db07385831e67f866ec45402be8b9 Steve Peoples & Aaron Kessler (27 June 2022) WASHINGTON (AP) — A political shift is beginning to take hold across the U.S. as tens of thousands of suburban swing voters who helped fuel the Democratic Party’s gains in recent years are becoming Republicans. More than 1 million voters across 43 states have switched to the Republican Party over the last year, according to voter registration data analyzed by The Associated Press. The previously unreported number reflects a phenomenon that is playing out in virtually every region of the country — Democratic and Republican states along with cities and small towns — in the period since President Joe Biden replaced former President Donald Trump. But nowhere is the shift more pronounced — and dangerous for Democrats — than in the suburbs, where well-educated swing voters who turned against Trump’s Republican Party in recent years appear to be swinging back. Over the last year, far more people are switching to the GOP across suburban counties from Denver to Atlanta and Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Republicans also gained ground in counties around medium-size cities such as Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Raleigh, North Carolina; Augusta, Georgia; and Des Moines, Iowa.

    https://twitter.com/barnes_law/status/1541612854406553600 I'd vote for Three Year Letterman (with Malice as runner-up). It's more like fishing, though. And with this one, Malice reeled in a full string of boomercons, twisting on the line and spluttering with indignation. https://twitter.com/michaelmalice/status/1541595901562585090

    https://twitter.com/michaelmalice/status/1541456316505407490 Here's the article Malice is talking about: Ron DeSantis and the Rise of Incoherent Folk Libertarianism (He was wise to stop reading part way through. I read the whole thing, and I'll just say that the title's complaint of "incoherence" is ironic. The article is just a vague, rambling mess of gripes.)

    The argument that life does not begin at conception because this would require fertility clinics to be shut down (due to the fact that most frozen embryos would never be born) is not a good one. The "obvious" counter-argument is that if life does begin at conception, then those fertility clinics should indeed be shut down, precisely because they will end up disposing of or destroying viable embryos. IOW: Not wanting to shut down fertility clinics is not a good reason for rejecting the proposition that life begins at conception. (Making murder illegal might put contract killers out of business - or at least severely constrain the manner in which they operate - but that is not a compelling argument for legalizing murder.) But that counter-argument is not a good one either (which is why I use quote marks when describing it as "obvious"). The problem with both the argument and the "obvious" counter-argument to it is that they each mash together and conflate two quite distinct issues. (This is a very common occurrence in debates over abortion, and it is one of the reasons abortion is such a "sticky subject".) The first issue is "when does life begin?" and the second issue is "under what circumstances should homicide be actionable?" These are entirely separate questions. The first issue sets the stage for the second issue, but does not (and cannot) answer it. If life begins at conception, then it does indeed follow that any act which results in the end of conceived life (such as disposing of or destroying viable frozen embryos) is homicide. But it does not follow that every such homicide must or should be regarded as actionable. There are many kinds and degrees of homicide: suicide, negligent homicide, accidental homicide, murder, justifiable homicide, etc. Not all of them are considered actionable - that is, not all of them are regarded as mandating preventive action prior to their occurrence ("accidents happen", after all) or as requiring the imposition of some kind of punishment after they occur (justifiable homicide in reasonable self-defense, for example). And even for those varieties of homicide that are considered actionable, the nature, kind, and severity of the action taken in response to them is not at all uniform or universal. Negligent homicide is treated less harshly than premeditated murder, for example, and (attempted) suicide less harshly still. Likewise, it seems entirely reasonable that there should be a range of responses to various kinds of "abortive" homicides, depending on circumstances and particulars. Deliberately killing a pregnant woman could be considered a double murder, while ending a pregnancy that endangers the mother's life could be considered justifiable homicide, and so on (and this could involve the modification of already existing categories of homicide, or even the establishment and recognition of new ones, if it is useful to do so).

    Agreed, and yet that power had to be in someone's hands... I would have included a fourth branch whose sole purpose was the determination of constitutionality. That, of course, is weak tea, but in the absence of a population fit to their freedoms, which we are not, it's about the best with which I can come up.

    I must disagree. It is the one clear statement about the free nature of men that is appropriately broad and it is absolutely necessary, especially in a world of dullardly sorts, like the Democrats. Let us hearken back to that which defines a "right". To wit: "A valid claim." Note that when I step up to the soapbox and declare the state of North Carolina as my individual property, it does not follow that everyone must then leave the area when I tell them to do so. My claim is invalid, prima facie, and therefore I have no right to North Carolina. Perhaps I should try Utah... The left does that wishing-well crap now, for Pete's sake. Why do you think their panties are in such a twist over the rightful execution of Roe? At some point, people like you and myownself need to step up and put the looters back into their places. But we don't. We allow them to run amok all willy-nilly for decades on end, in ever intensifying fashion, then wonder why the world has turned to feces? If "government" is indeed BY the people, that would include us. Pimping the responsibilities off onto "professionals" gets us what we now so thoroughly enjoy in our lives: bald-faced tyranny of the worst variety - that which is slathered in a rich cocoa coating... only now they're removing the sweet and leaving the moldy, rotten insides and telling us to eat and be glad about it.

    Well, sniffing contractors is better than sniffing little kids. EDIT: Oh, wait. "stiffing", not "sniffing". Never mind. EDIT #2: On second thought, I take it back. Stiffing contractors is better than sniffing little kids, too (or stiffing them, for that matter).

    The secession of the American colonies from the United Kingdom of Great Britain was successful. That is an indication it can be done. The secession of the Baltic states, Russia, et al. from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was both successful and remarkably peaceful. What relatively little violence did occur was much more a product of chaos and confusion than of any concerted effort by the Soviet state to forcibly prevent secession. If you had asked anyone even just a dozen years prior to those events whether such a thing was likely - or even merely possible - the answer would almost universally have been, "No! Of course not! There is no indication it can be done." And yet, it happened. That is an indication it can be done.

    It will be interesting to see whether a challenge makes it to SCOTUS, and if so, what the ruling will be. If they are concerned with credibility, they would have no choice but to strike down the statute. Were I to write an Amendment XXIX, it would eliminate all statute. All bills would have to pass a strict-scrutiny test of sufficiency to qualify as Law. Statutes would no longer hold a whit of authority, as per Marbury. But more relevant to this thread, severability would be banned. If even a single element of a bill is thrown out by a court, the entire statute goes with it.

    They never go far enough where the right thing is concerned. But it is - by implication. 9A protects ALL rights in clear and unmistakable language. IMO, an early 1T termination is regrettable. People should be better in control of their behavior than what we typically see, but shit does happen even for the responsible. All else equal, however, waiting until one is four months in to decide clearly seems outside the metes of one's personal prerogative. That we as humans are so degenerated that we feel the need to have to resort to such measures is the real problem. Fix that and the rest resolves without dangerous outside interferences in the lives of freemen. A couple things. Firstly, what you wrote here underscores and nails shut the lid on Tenth Amendment as cancer. There is NO SUCH THING as "states' rights" because there are no such things as states, in sé. Remove humans and anything that might be deemed "state" disappears as if by magic or high-order thermonuclear detonation. It is a bullshit amendment that represents a pinnacle of pooching by the Framers, and should be stricken. The Ninth is perhaps the preeminent element of the BoR because it shorthands that which is normatively and provably absolute in its correctness: human freedom is absolute with the single restrictive proviso that one respect the equally valid claims of his fellows. In this, the English whom I tend to find otherwise so despicable, had it perfectly right when Commonlaw was codified with but three almost childishly simple seeming tenets:

    If that be the case, and all else equal, then I would deem it a valid standard. But the yammer about "tradition" is idiotic on its face. Were I a justice and had allowed those flying things escape my yap, I'd resign on the spot for sheer shame and wear a paper bag over my head for the rest of my life, even in the house.

    The Trump support is very real. Don't listen to some of the idiots in here spreading nonsense and not knowing the dynamics of the game. Trump wins especially if high turnout or comes in a very close second in Iowa. He blows everyone out in NH and SC as of today.

    Wish it were so but reality is reality.
