    Florida Gun Ban Proposed

    Just our red flag law, which I mostly support, but that's another thread. Why do you ask? Is there some problem with discussing proposed legislation and proposed constitutional amendments that have not yet passed?

    The Stray Goat Julie B

    Oh, and fooling with deck plates and making new holes in bulkheads. I didn't make a new post, just updated the above one with details on those things but a major milestone was reached. The first coat of varnish on the Stray Goat! I plan to put two more before allowing the boat out in the sun but I hope to get those done and be sailing pretty soon. I'll stack on more coats as time goes by.

    Photography Is Not A Crime

    Nice fantasy. The reality is: Most police still don't have bodycams. Most PDs with bodycams, lack a clear policy about releasing footage to the public (or even their civilian review boards). There is no drop in police brutality associated with the implementation of bodycams. Literally doesn't budge the needle in any significant way. The reforms need to go a lot deeper than just cams. I'm interested in the source for that third point above. I agree that other reforms are important but believe that cameras can help to defend cops against false accusations and hold them accountable for misbehavior, even if cameras don't stop the misbehavior. The biggest single reform I have in mind would be ending the stupid drug war, but also ending its ancillary outcomes like police looting, police militarization, mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines and qualified impunity. You know, reversing Joe Biden's whole political career.

    Trump's Accomplishments

    That does seem to be the theme here but I think this thread could use an actual accomplishment with merit, so... Better late than never but she and any other critter should FIRST think about "what would a President I don't like do with this" before creating something like that. She's just now figuring out this basic fact about government power?

    Who really believes tariffs are good business

    More attempts to win the foot-shooting contest. Sigh. I guess this thread needs some counterpoint, so here's some Koch-$ponsored Trump cheerleading on the topic: Trump's New Tariffs on Canadian Aluminum Are Justifiable
  6. Yes, it does. There is some history there, as noted in a previous thread

    New York AG sues to dissolve the NRA

    It's one option that I have been pointing out for years. For example: And not even all that funny, considering that states do revoke corporate charters. That's an execution. So what you're waiting for already happened. You can go ahead and agree with the entire Supreme Court on this point, since I did already show you that all 9 believe corporations are people.
  8. Is New York's Attack on the NRA Meant To Punish the Gun Rights Cause for Executive Malfeasance? Given the responses here, the obvious and completely unsurprising answer to that question seems to me to be yes.
  9. I'm still considering purchasing this weapon of war. How do I get NRA help with my purchase? I didn't know they did that kind of subsidy!

    FAIR Act to Reform Asset Seizure Laws

    Doesn't seem that way to me. TeamD had candidates who were not drug warriors but they lost. Here's one example of why Biden seems about as useless on the issue as Obama was, which is in "tits on a boar" territory.

    Whatever the basis for this was, I'd guess.

    FAIR Act to Reform Asset Seizure Laws

    Part of a broader pattern, including the support for mandatory minimums, military equipment to police, and wanting more research before deciding whether to allow research into cannabis. Basically, a career drug warrior.

    FAIR Act to Reform Asset Seizure Laws

    Pretty good reason for someone like me to not want either one of them as President. Only one is running though.

    FAIR Act to Reform Asset Seizure Laws

    Not the one I linked. I already quoted what was at the top. Please provide a link to the bill you are talking about.

    It might be time to revoke their corporate charter. It happens...
