    Cheney's voting record is as conservative, if not moreso, than that of the lady who's replacing her. But she dared to refuse to kowtow to the Narcissist-in-Chief and embrace his lies about the election, so she had to go. It appears that a majority of the GOP in Congress feels that getting reelected and cultivating a cult of personality are more important than principle.

    That is allegedly from an 11 year-old report. Why would it necessarily be applicable to the Covid vaccines?

    So you blithely assume the judge lied in his order about the plaintiff's expert testimony? And no one on the plaintiff's team objected or called a press conference to point out such an egregious error? If I were the expert I'd surely want the order to accurately reflect what I said. The judge's order was appealed to the Arizona Supreme Court, whose opinion noted, "The parties also presented evidence after reviewing a sample of the envelope signatures on mail-in ballots. Their experts determined that out of 100 signatures, six to eleven of the signatures were "inconclusive" but neither expert could identify any sign of forgery or simulation and neither could provide any basis to reject the signatures. (emphasis added)" Did the members of the Arizona Supreme Court lie as well? https://casetext.com/case/ward-v-jackson-2 That's why you get duped. When Trump's side loses in court you're convinced it's because the judges are corrupt or part of a huge conspiracy.

    Both the plaintiff's and the defendants' forensic experts said there was no evidence of forgery or simulation. Do you have any basis to disagree with them? And the ballots weren't found to be "defective". The matches on signatures on 6% or 11% of the sample were found to be inconclusive, which isn't a defect for the simple reason that Arizona law doesn't require the election workers who check the signatures to be forensic experts who have the luxury of taking up to a couple of hours on each ballot.

    If these people are "mentally challenged" it's possible that they don't have the capacity to consent or to refuse to consent to be vaccinated. In such a case, it's possible that a guardian or someone who was given authorization via a Medical Power of Attorney consented to their getting the shot.

    Do they still teach how to check your subtraction by adding the difference to the subtrahend and seeing if it equals the minuend? (After more decades than I care to recall, I still remember those terms.)

    Next: No one will be taught algebra until ALL students have mastered* fractions. After that: no one will be taught fractions until ALL students have mastered the multiplication table. After that: no one will be taught the multiplication table until ALL students have mastered addition and subtraction. After that: no one will be taught addition and subtraction until ALL students have mastered counting. After that: forget it. The US has become a technological third-world country, all in the name of "equity". * Of course, "mastered" is a racist word and must be eliminated.

    So cameras at stop lights constitute fine increases because they catch people who break traffic laws (and increase the risk of a collision) and who would skate but for the cameras? And radar guns should be called fine increases as well. For that matter, hiring more IRS employees or increasing the IRS's budget is a tax hike. In fact, anything that helps the enforcement of tax collection or the detection of unlawful activity that carries a monetary penalty is a tax/fine hike, right? "Tax hike" in this context is a misleading rhetorical phrase designed to appeal to people who are either ignorant about the existence of use taxes or don't care about complying with them. Will the revenue collected by state governments in general or Florida in particular increase? Yes. Did the tax payable by purchasers increase? No.

    The new law appears to be in response to a 2018 US Supreme Court decision that overturned an earlier decision that held that a state couldn't require an out-of-state seller to collect sales tax if the seller had no physical presence in the state. Under the prior law the buyer paid no sales tax but instead owed use tax to his state of residence. But it was usually impossible for the state to enforce the use tax, except with respect to very large purchases (e.g., an aircraft) or business assets. If you lived, say, in New York and ordered a computer and monitor from Dell for your use at home, you owed NY use tax (because no sales tax was collected on the purchase), but no one ever paid it. So it's not really a tax increase. It's just requiring the seller to collect what the buyer owes anyway.

    So kids will now be taught: 5 is greater than 4 only because it's been privileged to be. The proof that there is no largest prime number was set down by a dead white guy named Euclid and is an example of the suppression of the white patriarchy that seeks to deny the right of a number to be the largest prime. You don't need to show your work because your teacher has the extraordinary ability to discern whether you really got the answer on your own or whether you just copied the answer from someone else because you hadn't paid attention in class, didn't learn anything, and had no clue about how to proceed to answer the question. Grading practices won't be focused on the lack of knowledge because everyone will pass and be promoted up to the next grade. After all, giving someone a failing grade just because he or she constantly gives wrong answers is obviously racist.

    If the bill passes the GOP can blame itself if new leftist Justices are added to the Court. In 2017, the GOP-led Senate lowered the votes need to confirm a Supreme Cpourt Justice from 60 to 51 and invoked the nuclear option (which the Dems had done in 2013 with regard to lower court federal judges) to lower the votes needed to end a filibuster from 60 to 51, all in order to get Gorsuch confirmed. What goes around, comes around...
