    Interesting. I wonder what bluetooth headphones do? They have a much less powerful signal. Of course the cell phone in my pocket all the time next to my junk my sterilize me but I've had all my kids already.

    The videos I posted are pretty clear. It's illegal in most states to take your 12 year old to the "nudie bar" as the infamous Al Bundy called it. Just because the girls at the nudie bar used to have, or still have, a penis shouldn't magically make that legal. This ain't complicated.

    Oh I know cases like that have happened and have left me scratching my head. Yeah I can't think of a specific one. I found this law review article that covers this issue. https://scholars.law.unlv.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1108&context=nlj Some of the relevant parts to what you're talking about: Many scholars have critiqued the Court’s Fourth Amendment standing doctrine for a variety of reasons,8 and I join the chorus with my view that the Court has developed an unduly narrow vision of standing (and thus, the Fourth Amendment) that fails to take into account the collective, regulatory objective of the Amendment and of its primary remedy—exclusion. However, the main focus of this Article is the Court’s collapse of the standing inquiry into the merits of a Fourth Amendment claim, a doctrinal move that, while noted by scholars, has not generally been the primary focus of analysis.9 I hope to demonstrate that with this move, the Court not only effectively restricted the scope of the Fourth Amendment, but helped ensure that its narrow, individualistic view would endure. To form a backdrop against which this argument can be developed, it is necessary to begin with a few thoughts on judicial activism in general and with respect to criminal procedure rules in particular. In an excellent article, Professor Stephen F. Smith provides a highly useful, ideologically neutral definition of judicial activism, in both its substantive and procedural dimensions.10 According to Professor Smith, substantive activism is implicated when a court reaches a decision at odds with the text or structure of the constitutional or statutory provision being adjudicated, when a court overrules precedent without proper justification under relevant stare decisis rules, or when a court distinguishes or limits precedent on tenuous grounds.11 Procedural activism, on the other hand, may be suspected when a court chooses to reach the merits of an issue despite justiciability rules that would (or should) otherwise restrain the court from so doing, or when a court decides more than is necessary to dispose of the case before it.12

    No racial angle on this one that I can see. The defender is an older white man who seemed pleasant and outgoing, at least according to neighbors, The judge and DA persecuting him are both white. The dead mugger is possibly Hispanic, last name Rodriguez. I don't know for sure cause his name and image is not being widely broadcast all over.

    1 - The sailor impressment was a major issue at the time, and the historical record shows that. Granted, I'm biased, considering my background. 2 - Nobody knew that, due to the slow communications. 3 - I still maintain that nothing Key wrote, in the third verse or anywhere, could be construed in any way as "racist". No race was mentioned at all. I've gone to great lengths to show that an impressed sailor in the British fleet was, for all intents and purposes, a slave. Since impressed seamen were actively involved in the battle of Fort McHenry, how do you know Key was not referring to them? Or to both?

It's awesome though! Gun youtuber Brandon Harrera tested a Luty. It wasn't very accurate but I wonder how it would do with a rifled barrel?

    Yes it's in the "style" of a shanty, written in the modern era by the late, great Stan Rogers. Take a listen to these guys: The Longest Johns. I am prepared to fly to England to see them, they are that good. An a capella musical rendition of Robert Louis Stevenson's poem "Christmas At Sea".

    I don't think you are. It should have stayed a maritime issue and a maritime fight, over the rights of sailors not to be enslaved by a hostile foreign power on the high seas. That phrase was the rallying cry for the war as a matter of fact: Free Trade and Sailors’ Rights The nation was still angry at the British over the 1807 USS Chesapeake - HMS Leopard incident as well.

    The regardless part isn't attached to the term "prurient". It's attached to the word "consideration". In law "consideration" means "for payment." So a sexually arousing performance (prurient) is off limits for minors regardless if its being done for payment or not. Last time I was at Hooters the waitresses really weren't that hot but the wings were pretty good. And Hooters waitresses dress pretty tame by today's standards. But going by your Hooters example, if the waitress that you found hot came out topless with nothing but pasties on would you find that more or less arousing? You know that there was recently a story on this forum about a 6 year old that raped another child right? Now 6 is 2 years past 4, but I'm willing to bet that a child who's moved on to rape 6 was probably exposed to sexually explicit material at 4 or 5. Is your argument that 4 year olds should be able to go into adult venues because they are too young? Not a good argument.

    Cops do. And we've both seen it. Possibly. But is that "douchiness" rooted in racism or making an overtly racist remark? No, not at all.

    Okay. I see your point. I need to look up the briefings in this case because I don't know how the plaintiffs had standing. One can argue for standing based on a "chilling effect" argument meaning "I can't do what I want to do for fear that I'll be arrested for doing it." I believe there's been a recent challenge by a gun store over Biden's pistol brace ban under that theory. In this case the plaintiff's were a gay playhouse that included a female Elvis impersonator. I don't see that as prurient. In fact at the conservative Christian academy I went to in the 1980s one of the girls did that for a talent show. That's my feeling on this. This law has been mischaracterized in the media as a ban on drag shows. Drag shows were no more banned then are heterosexual strip shows. You can get a lap dance in Nashville, you just can't take your kids to watch.

    What the Tennessee law was actually trying to stop. Little girl allowed to rub on drag queen's crotch in Chattanooga Tennesse. Minnesota drag queen at "story hour" exposing crotch to children. Anti Federalist posted a thread about this back in 2019.

    And...that's the "justification" for the 20 year Afghanistan fiasco. Ron Paul warned against that and nobody listened. Letters of marque and reprisal would have been the correct response, not a land war which we basically lost.

    The actual text of the law: BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE: SECTION 1. Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 7-51-1401, is amended by adding the following language as a new subdivision: "Adult cabaret performance" means a performance in a location other than an adult cabaret that features topless dancers, go-go dancers, exotic dancers, strippers, male or female impersonators who provide entertainment that appeals to a prurient interest, or similar entertainers, regardless of whether or not performed for consideration; SECTION 2. Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 7-51-1407, is amended by adding the following language as a new subsection: (c) (1) It is an offense for a person to engage in an adult cabaret performance: (A) On public property; or

    Just to be clear, the cops suck. The first amendment should protect people in Confederate uniforms singing Dixie if that's what they want to do. And who the hell traumatizes kids like that? That said, I still think it was a douche move on the part of Francis Scott Key to threaten people for wanting freedom. The British impressing black seaman (and paying them) into temporary service sounds like the Union impressing black freeman to build Ft. Negley in Nashville. (I've walked around that fort a few times. Interesting experience.) And before someone says "See! Lincoln was a tyrant!" the south was FAR worse not just to black people but to poor whites. The rich Southern planters forced poor whites to fight for them while exempting themselves from service based on how many slaves they owned. Still waiting for an answer as to why invading Canada was justified. Funny enough the U.S. best success was fighting at sea. Which...goes back to my earlier point. The U.S. could have simply better equipped U.S. vessels to be able to defend themselves from whoever was attacking them. Would have had the same result. But then we wouldn't have gotten a national song I suppose. Kind of the Ron Paul "letters of marque and reprisal" proposition that he offered as opposed to a land war in Afghanistan. And we see how that ended up.
