Trump to ask judge to toss out lawyer notes in Mar-a-Lago documents case
  • The Court has to know that ruling a former President immune for breaking the law isn't a viable decision.

    Like, it would immediately make any sitting President a king, and supercede the Court's power.

    Which is why they'll wait, but rule he isn't immune. Not because it's the right thing, but because doing otherwise would make the Court less, and they're selfish fucks that want to be on top.

  • Kate Mulgrew told Rick Berman she wanted a gay character on the Voyager bridge
  • The episode that really nailed down what a talented actor Jeri Ryan is was the time she had all those assimilated personalities surface and was switching back and forth rapidly, and the bit where the Doctor "took over" her body when they were in prison.

    Both times, it was absolutely believable that someone else was at the wheel, and "Seven" wasn't there.

  • Biden says the next president may get to name two Supreme Court justices
  • I think an "arms race" that forever expands the court -- and thus dilutes the individual relevance of a single Justice -- is a good thing.

    A single Justice dying or retiring should not be the sort of thing to reshape the entire country.

  • Joe Biden suddenly leads convicted felon Donald Trump in multiple battleground states
  • There are no hard requirements for being president beyond those listed in the Constitution:

    1. Be a natural born US citizen
    2. Be at least 35 years old
    3. Have resided in the US for 14 or more years.

    That's it. The framers of the Constitution presumably felt being a convicted felon would be enough for an electorate (or the electoral college, at least) to simply not vote for that person.

  • Fauci says ‘unusual’ antics by Marjorie Taylor Greene is reason he gets death threats
  • History will forget her.

    How many people remember stupid congresspeople from 30 years ago?

    Imhofe bringing a snowball to the Senate floor, this disproving climate change, for example. You and i and historians might, but average Joe on the street?

  • Surf Dracula®
  • I'd look to a show like The Good Place for a perfect balance.

    It absolutely matters if you haven't seen previous episodes, but each episode is still, on it's own, great.

  • Idaho bar celebrates "Heterosexual Awesomeness Month" with free beer for straight men
  • The answer is the old chestnut,

    "When you are accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression."

    People like those you're responding to often see the world as a zero-sum game. If LGBTQ+ people carve out -- or in this case, demand -- representation for themselves, they believe that representation must take away "representation points" or whatever from some other group.

    Frankly, Pride is the one time of year it's okay to tell these people to shut the fuck up and sit down.
