    I mean, it's guaranteed to be true on a long enough time horizon. And for redhats, no matter when it happens, it will be another promise Trump kept.

    If you're hoping to come up with a dictionary whose definitions don't end up being circular, you're doomed to fail. I think this is probably a corollary to Gödel's incompleteness theorems.

    I have so many questions. 1) Is this a serious thing that real scientists are studying, or just some sideshow nonsense that a zoo is putting on display and making ridiculous unsubstantiated claims about? 2) If the former, then why does this article not delve into it a bit deeper and report on what scientists are seriously studying it, and instead only talks about it being on display at a zoo? 3) Where did it come from? 4) How do they know it has 720 sexes? And what does that even mean?

    The criteria you're using will make you a sovereign ruler over all of us, since there will always be the possibility that other people minding their own business and doing nothing to harm you will do things that indirectly change the world around you in such a way that lays the groundwork for future crimes to be committed against you by yet other people. This kind of reasoning doesn't work. And if you really accept it as reasonable, you no longer have any grounds to rail against the police state or communism because your own trump card will work just as well for everything they want to do to rule over you as it does for the ways you want to rule over the rest of us.

    Several billion people in the USA would be easily sustainable. But you are right that when it's not sustainable, the laws of supply and demand will be enough to put a stop to it without central planners making those decisions for us.

    He will benefit from this. This puts him on the side of the big money, including among the largest sources of cash not just for Republicans but Democrats too. And it arguably sets him apart from the entire rest of the Democrat lineup as the best friend of those big money interests. Also, it puts him in the best position of the remaining Democrats to benefit from Biden's slippage as an establishment candidate.

    Your questions are hard to answer inasmuch as they are loaded and make little sense. But I will try. I don't need to say anything about holiday makers in order to vindicate the migration of anyone else into this country who wants to come here. Immigration to America (both legal and illegal) needs no vindication, since there's nothing wrong with it. The national debt is entirely irrelevant, except to make the additional point about how illegal immigrants in particular help to ameliorate it by paying into SS and Medicare funds without the liability of having to pay it out to them in the future. Threat of recession is also not relevant, except inasmuch as the influx of cheap labor that the immigration you refer to will help stave it off. Ethnic stress though. Now I think there you bring up what is for most redhats the real issue. But that also has nothing to do with vindicating something that is plainly not in any way unjust. If some injustice comes about through the motivation of ethnic stress, then the guilt for that belongs to those individuals who commit the injustice. Any vindication of them would be open to question. But mere presence of Latin Americans (or other ethnic groups belonging to the impoverished people you mentioned) in the USA is not an injustice on anyone's part to be vindicated. And those who feel some kind of ethnic stress because those Latin Americans (or members of other groups) live in the USA bear the responsibility for that stress. They should learn not to be troubled by things that are none of their business.

    So you think that arresting people who illegally cross the border is unfortunate treatment of them? From the rest of your post it's hard to tell if you really think that. Or is it only unfortunate when they are "holiday makers" and not "impoverished people"?

    If the US hadn't entered WWI, there would have been no WWII. WWI was basically a border war- we had no business being part of that except for helping the MIC. Germany was then blamed for the whole war & made to pay for everything- basically sending them into extreme poverty. Without our "intervention" there would have been no Hitler, no WWII, and all the aftermath that came from it. Think about that.

    I was thinking the same thing. There was no animal. This is part of a coordinated invasion of our sovereign nation. These people are invaders. There may be some Ron Paul types out there who would ask why there's a road there in the first place that crosses the US-Canada border without any wall or official border crossing point that everyone on that road would be forced to stop at, and why in the absence of something like that people simply driving down that road would be arrested without having violated any apparent laws that they would have any way of knowing about. But that is shear victim blaming. These people are invaders, and we're all victims of their crime.

    I don't believe this is accurate. That his arguments, when soundly critically evaluated, will fail to convince and not be appealed to as a basis for future judgments. The assumption in common law is that there exists an objective standard against which judgments can be measured. The assumption in statutory law (at least as we know it) is that no such standard exists, or that, if it does, it is in the form of other made up statutes like the Constitution. An attempt to appeal to the will of the people more abstractly may be made. But when not circumscribed by justice, this only serves to give the color of legitimacy to what is actually unjust.

    A judge may do that. There is no guarantee that judges will rule more justly than legislators will legislate. Nevertheless, there is an underlying conceptual difference that makes the former approach to law more amenable to libertarianism than the latter. The legislature's legislating proceeds on the assumption that the legislature has the authority to make up laws. The legislature needs to appeal to no higher law than itself. The judge by nature must appeal to a law outside himself. He may do that erroneously. But his ruling will then be subject to critique against the measure of justice itself (or at least justice to the degree that others understand it). And he will never be able to counter an argument that appeals to justice with an appeal to his own authority to make the law be whatever he wants it to be the way a legislature is designed to be able to do.

    I would like to see what fisharmor says too, but speaking for myself, there is a qualitative difference between common law and statutory law rooted in different concepts of justice, with the concept of justice behind common law being the one that is more rooted in natural law, and thus the more libertarian. Common law appeals to an objective and eternal law that already exists, transcendent to human beings, like the laws of math, logic, and physics. Our role with respect to this law is to discover it, not to invent it. We may not perfectly apprehend it, but we approach it from a starting point of recognizing that it applies equally to all people at all times and that we have no power to change it, and we may with effort and critical application of our minds and the law that is written on our hearts come to know it better and better. Statutory laws are made up. They are invented, not discovered. They always change. They don't really exist. They derive their authority from the people who make them up, and those people derive their authority from violent subjugation of other people, in contradiction to natural law. I like the way Lysander Spooner put it in his Letter to Grover Cleveland, which is a must read for all, though, you can be sure it will not go over well with the resident redhats. https://oll.libertyfund.org/titles/spooner-a-letter-to-grover-cleveland-1886

    During the 2008 and 2012 campaigns, one of the main themes of this website was railing against examples like this of the loss of freedom and growth of the police state this nation underwent after 9/11. Today the new anti-libertarian majority here cheers this kind of thing on.

    The President's swamp draining is not getting enough recognition. The Obama administration appointed so many swamp dwellers to various offices that it left room to only appoint about 65 lobbyists to any positions in the administration in 5 years. Trump has appointed 281 lobbyists in half as much time. That's 281 posts filled by lobbyists instead of lizard people. https://www.propublica.org/article/we-found-a-staggering-281-lobbyists-whove-worked-in-the-trump-administration
