Why? Are the US Police actions That racially driven?

I suspect that a lot of it has to do with money. I'm sure contributions from big oil buy a lot more political pressure than contributions from big wildlife.

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Morris, there's a lot of things wrong about "Clinton asks Obama for pardon" to me. Why would you think she needs one? Her innocence or guilt don't really change the fact that a pardon would be beneficial. If there is a chance republicans will pursue her with prosecution for something it i...

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Well, I retract any objection to characterizing it as suppression. I've seen pretty long lines in my area around lunchtime and I assume by extension there are long lines over the weekends so I just assumed it was like that.

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Yeah, exactly. When one party has to actively suppress people voting in order to stay in power, it's clear that staying in power is their only actual goal. How can anyone trying to stop their constituents from voting possibly justify it to themselves any other way? It's depressing and disturbing. U...

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Sure you can. For instance, you could call up a representative sample of voters and ask them who they voted for any why. Political parties aren't limited to looking at vote counts for their market research. If you want to bring surveys into it, it is probably more strategic to just plan to lie on s...

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

Well, here's the thing. A vote for Clinton better sends that message than a vote for a 3rd party. In the end of the day, if you're a Republican and want to voice your disgust at this year, the best way to do that is Clinton. Because that means I'm a "converted vote" (which means my voting...

Re: 2016 US Presidential Election

A Wet Rag Stuffed Into a Tailpipe is pretty much Ted Cruz Lite. He also doesn't believe smoking kills . He's not exactly 'better' than Trump. What he actually wrote isn't that unreasonable (although I don't know about the specific statistics) Despite the hysteria from the political class and the me...

Re: Indiana's "Religious Freedom" law

A lay reading of that section, to me, seems like the government would have had to explicitly justify why a specific burden is the least burdensome way to ensure non-discrimination in order for it to be applicable, which would suggest to me that the government would have to spend a lot of time actua...

Re: Indiana's "Religious Freedom" law

I have been lured out of lurking to respond to this. I am not a lawyer and do not work for a law firm but my line of work does often involve reading, interpreting, and applying certain parts of Indiana legal code so while I'm far from a master I wouldn't consider myself a novice at this. While Sardi...
