    International free market capitalism was invented by the British crown for precisely this reason.

    I thought this wasn’t supposed to pass the “house” . Or was it the senate? And like 14 republicans voted with the democrats?

    Pull out, wear a condom, etc. Ain't that hard (no pun intended).

    I think he’s right. The “pro life” movement was never about actually giving a fuck about the actual lives of children. If it was, the pro life movement would follow through with… you know… doing shit to actually take care of all the unwanted children they want in this world.

    The argument over whether it should be controlled by the states or federal government is a different argument… They simply took this avenue to get what they wanted. And that’s fine, but let’s not pretend like any of these religious fucks or the politicians jerking them off actually gives one flying fuck about any of these kids’ lives.

    The Catholic Church promotes this idea because they like to run orphanages and adoption agencies so they can selectively brainwash these children into being good little fuck bait for their priests while also growing up to tithe large sums of money for their criminal organization.

    The rest of the religious right just picked up on this practice a few decades ago. States’ rights and the actual argument over abortion are two different things.

    Peer-reviewed study, using nationwide hospital discharge and vaccine data in France, provides "strong evidence of an increased risk of myocarditis and of pericarditis in the week following vaccination against Covid-19 with mRNA vaccines in both males and females."

    Psych experts hired by the government are the worst fucking people, aside from maybe HR people. If they are given the chance, they will exile anyone who doesn't conform to their limited understanding of an "average" person from society, because they are "unpredictable" or "dangerous". "Red flag" laws are ridiculously easy to corrupt, and I am sure they will be used in this way right out of the gate. Good luck getting a gun legally if you've ever badmouthed the sitting government or their pet causes openly on social media.

    Republicans crossed the aisle in both houses. Because there's no teeth in what's left of this act. Nothing about guns, only background checks and funding for "counseling troubled youth".

    Brandon said it best...

    How many times have you heard that, ‘Just do something, for God's sake just do something?'

    "Today, we did."
    Yeah, you did. Something.

    So what happens when the Supreme Court rules that a law is unconstitutional and the DOJ refuses to enforce it?

    The mask-wearers are incapable of understanding this.

    What you actually mean is "Good luck getting a gun from a retail gun store if you've ever badmouthed the sitting government or their pet causes openly on social media. It's not illegal for me to sell a gun to another individual, and we have 400 million guns. They want you to forget about the 400 million guns we already have.

    I don't understand the question. If the law is unconstitutional, the DOJ is not supposed to enforce it.

This is convenient for administrations who want to pretend that printing money out of thin electrons is not inflationary ("Milton Friedman is not in charge anymore."), because dollars must be kept in reserve to buy oil, and more of them doesn't hurt too much of anything with an expanding world population that needs more and more oil and gas. But if China/Russia/the EU get together and decide that Brandon can fend for himself, Brandon is fucked, quite thoroughly.

    Is that close?
