Hypothetical I’d ask you to indulge me with an answer: if the merits of the case involved something incredibly boring (FTCA statute of limitations, something bankruptcy related, pick your area), and the petitioner sought to stay the below decision pending cert review, would you be this outraged at 5 justices granting Read more

If we’re going to do completely wild speculation here goes mine. (Note: I don’t necessarily believe this theory; it’s just the one I’m throwing out there.) Read more

Banzhaf is a piece of shit. Or does he follow every case filed in Maryland just in case he needs to file complaints like this? No? Then he’s a a piece of shit looking for the spotlight.

The literal *second* I saw/heard this, I was like how does this idiot function without NUMBERS? is he adding up his congressional salary with roman numerals? because goddamn white people (of which I am one, although I am jewish, so steve king may have issues with me as well) did not invent fucking arabic numerals.

I almost expected: If black people were contributing so much to society, why didn’t they invent the cotton gin? Would’ve made their lives so much easier. But no, a white man had to do it.

When Newt Gingrich is referred to as a “policy wonk” I barf in my mouth a little bit. He’s a moron’s idea of what a smart person sounds like.

I went to a shitty school, so I love to see the self-important “progressive” shitheads at Yale being called out as hypocrites. I’d be infuriated, though, if Menafee disgraced the mighty Thunderbirds by knocking out a window at ITT Tech, Buffalo campus.

Shame on every student who didn’t take credit for it so the dude could keep his job. All they would do is add the cleaning fee to your 50k bill.

I was at a wedding recently, where the bride is a Yale law grad. I assumed there would be a contingent of Yale Law grads, and when I saw a bunch of yuppies ordering round after round of shots without tipping at the open bar, I said “You guys must be the Yale law grads.” Read more

I agree with literally everything you say in this article. It’s truly difficult to relate to these problems because even though I’m Jewish (more ish than Jew), I’m a white dude. I started on third base. I’ve had no hardship in my life. It enrages me that we still have essentially a race war in this country. It enrages Read more

Holy shit. And, I WAS a homeschooled kid in the 90s and this is crazy.

So, these people have time to go to the state supreme court, but don’t have the time to bother to teach their kid fractions while waiting for their Sky Buddy? Ugh - I hate to take it to their level - but the Apostle Paul himself admonished people Read more

There’s valid reasons for homeschooling. But I’m not sure how the 14th amendment has anything to do with them.

Except polling supports all the claims Elie made, especially in southern states where African-Americans are the largest consistently democratic electorate. They’re also the most likely to turn out to vote.

I don’t get it. If they need to lose the case entirely to preserve the secret and continue to catch criminals, wont all the future cases they make also be tossed? What’s the upside unless in the future they just lie and go with parallel construction to obfuscate the fact that they are not disclosing how they gathered Read more

This was a bad case for a challenge against the fbi, considering most child pornography laws are heavily slanted towards a guilty until proven innocent pov anyway. Read more
