If you had a performance in 2017 that would have earned you that $1m raise on the 2017 job market, but your boss told you he decided it was in the best interest of the company to suck in 2018, as well as a large percentage of the rest of the market was not paying you because they intended to suck, I think you would…
I just find it odd that you would wholeheartedly accept the owner’s framing of a labor dispute, without knowing any of the details of the offers made or rejected (because none of us know), rather than saying “my team should pay for the available all star level players and I don’t care if Mr. WhoCaresWhatHisNameIs…
Well, as a fan, you should want your team to sign as many of those players as possible because they are available and who gives a fuck about the owner’s money, there’s no salary cap.
Does that $150 million Mets payroll include Bobby Bonilla’s salary?
So, basically, David Brooks listened to Code Switch once and was a bad biology student in middle school.
i learned last week that conservative students are being drowned in toilets all across the nation how can you say this isn’t important
Hard right US Catholics are deeply confused people. I think it’s part of the natural Catholic desire for shame and guilt.
This blog is rude to both dog whistles and butt cheeks, neither of which deserves to be associated with older Tammy Lauren up there.
Taxing something that is a right in a prohibitive or even merely discriminatory way is unconstitutional.
You don’t need to get the interpretation changed to start passing legislation. You pass stuff you believe is consistent with the current decisions and let your opponent spend years fighting you in the courts.
This is may be the least accurate thing I’ve ever read regarding constitutional powers. I hope you’re just a troll and not a deeply confused person. You literally used the phrase “powers granted by the second amendment.” That was fun.
lol you have no idea what you’re talking about
That’s purely an enforcement decision and the feds are free to arrest those people whenever they want.
I am not arguing what should be legal. I am making a factual assertion about what is currently legal in the US. And the Supreme Court has found that the 2nd amendment covers the right to own a handgun for the purpose of home defense. In a discussion about what kinds of gun control that could be passed without…
posting the same comment 4 times doesn’t make it any less stupid
Eh. If there was enough political will to repeal the 2nd, passing federal legislation to enact some kind of ban would be a trivial matter. The federal law would preempt those state constitutions and be enforceable under all our current commerce clause jurisprudence.
That’s fair. I was being extremely restrictive in my description for narrative clarity. The pedant in me wants to say that while that is probably the only reasonable reading of Heller, the specific question has not come before the court and is thus still open.
It’s ridiculous to say that passing legislation faces the same political barriers as amending the constitution. It’s just not true, as I’m sure you know. Amendments require 2/3rds passage in both houses and ratification by 3/4ths of the states. Laws don’t. Suggesting that passing currently-constitutional gun control…
As Alex points out in the piece, the repeal of the 2nd is probably not necessary. The interpretation of the 2nd amendment that supports an individual right to bear arms is all of 10 years old. It was not the law before the Heller decision. Even with the Heller and McDonald decisions, we have no ideas where the…
I like to think that the woman in the background of the second video was just going to her regular gym to get a quick workout in and walked in on him fucking around with that giant ass rock.
