  5. This quote might shock some people. "[The 2nd Amendment] has been the subject of one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word fraud, on the American public by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime." - Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Berger, a conservative, in 1991. The legal consensus surrounding the 2A for the majority of our country's history was that the right to bear arms was not an individual right, but rather a right for those called into military service i.e. a militia. And that's what the actual language of the 2A talks about - a militia. The U.S. SC did not rule that the 2A guaranteed an individual the right to own a gun until 2008 by a slim 5-4 vote. Up until that point, every other time the court had ruled previously, they had ruled that you did not have that right. And to this day, the court has still concluded that gun ownership is not an absolute right and is subject to limitations. What we're seeing and have been seeing for decades now is a lobbying effort by groups like the NRA, as well as anti-democratic push by certain politicians and presidents (who don't represent the popular vote of this country), pushing policies on people who don't actually want them. I'm all for hunting. I'm all for responsible gun ownership. But I'm also all for more strict gun control and much stronger barriers to entry/ownership. Most of this country is. And it's pretty clear that most of the apprehension towards more strict gun control is largely a result of successful manipulation by gun rights lobbyists with deep pockets and a financial agenda.

  6. Rumblings suggest he committed and that there are a few other big names who did too or are on the cusp. 4.5 on Nebraska's WR takes for this cycle. Omar and Oliver are for sure leaving after this year and the hope is Trey breaks out and goes pro so that would be three right off the bat. Two will be processed out, and that leaves for 4-5 guys coming in to play.

  7. I am very confident that Scott didn't make the decision to fire the four offensive coaches and do the necessary shuffling to get Bill Busch in place as a dedicated special teams coach. I think that was Alberts & the administration doing his job for him. There's no way that after that Ohio State loss when the losing record was sealed that Frost sat down with Alberts and said "Ok, check out this great plan I have here." No. It was almost certainly the other way around. Frost is so damn lucky to not have gotten fired after going 3-9 that it's just absurd. It's up to Whipple, Chinander, & Busch to make up for all of Scott's problems as a visionary for putting together a good football team in Lincoln.

  8. For no other purpose than the country has a "well-regulated militia." Because there was no standing army when the Constitution was written, so every available live body had to have a gun and be able to defend the newly-founded nation against foreign invasion. Some jackwad with an AR is not "well-regulated." In fact, as the right-wingers progress along this fascist path, they're making sure there are fewer and fewer regulations involved in possessing a gun. It is the actual factual opposite of the language in the 2nd Amendment. People forget the "well-regulated" part because of their authoritarian fetish. People also forget that the Amendments were written in such a different time that we had to literally bake into the Constitution the fact that citizens could not be forced to house the army in their homes. But that's not an issue anymore because we own this swath of the continent 'from sea to shining sea.' So it's unimaginable to most folks that we should have to have constitutional protection from press-ganged housing. The 3rd Amendment is no less important than the 2nd Amendment. But it is no less anachronistic to today's world than the 2nd Amendment. It's probably, after 220-something years, time to update the Constitution to reflect today's real world.

If you think this is even in the same universe as a few liberals floating the Electoral College idea (wrongly) you haven't been paying attention. Did anyone in power actually foment a coup at that time? Why would the FBI investigate a few pundits mouthing off. Maybe in your fever dream of a fascist utopia they would.

Not only did Thompson beat out and start over a guy 9 tiers ahead of him, the dude who wrote it got the situation entirely wrong "Card was Texas starter before going down with an injury"...no he was Texas starter until he was pulled the first game and replaced with Thompson who won the job long term. That took 5 seconds of research.

  20. Went back and looked at some stuff from a year ago, specifically some of this guy's tweets, which seem to have been decently accurate. Here's what he was saying a few months ago. Talks a lot about schools realizing that a lot of the booster money that used to come to them will now go to NIL instead, which changes the math for conference affiliation. And these just a couple weeks ago... And in the last day or so. Sounds like Jack Swarbrick decides where things go from here...

  26. I think that’s more of an honesty/integrity issue. When a potential justice is asked specifically about RvW and their answer is that it’s settled law and precedent but then within months they vote to overturn….That isn’t people acting like it never happens. That is people expecting our SC justices to be honest, not to be liars and to say whatever lands them the job. Maybe you like being lied to but I suspect most Americans don’t like it. Well, I take that back. It seems close to half of Americans are okay with being lied to and even prefer their politicians and officials to be dishonest as long as it achieves their desired political results. Care to guess which half that is?

  27. The entire premise is false. These people don't want to be "left alone." They want to have control over how other free Americans live their lives. They just want to pretend they have the moral high ground while they do it. All while they use feel good language like "claiming our rights back" while being totally fine tossing others' rights in the garbage. Someone put it quite well the other day. Trump has emboldened the a$$h@!es in this country to feel like they've got power. And they're only getting worse because of it.

Strictly voted against the crazy, so if any Repubs actually have a shot in the general at least it hopefully won’t be the worst ones. Honestly I still have conservative tendencies but even the milder candidates were some degree of bats#!t. Probably will be forced to vote for mostly dems in the general. Why can’t the Rs get their s#!t together and step off the crazy bus?

  32. You are aware that Oil and Gas companies have stated - many times - that they would lose money expanding operations, yes? You know it's a joke when the first complaint was "canceling keystone XL", a project that wouldn't be completed for a decade and that doesn't even add new oil or refinery capacities. Furthermore, do you think Europeans, who pay much higher prices, are blaming Joe Biden? OR do you think the factors pushing up prices in Europe? For the love of God, please don't vote. The last time you elected a guy, we got "inject bleach" cheeto man. I mean, let's pretend for a nanosecond that you're correct - which in this universe and in nearly all versions of any scientifically plausible multiverse you are not - are gas prices as bad as election denial and your parties assault on Democracy?

  37. Watch how much better, and more frequent, plays behind the LOS and 5-yards down field will be called as compared to previous years. The offense Frost runs is supposed to be quick attacking, but when a QB holds on too long or throws behind the target then the WR/RB has little to no shot. Thompson is money with those touch passes and it will be a huge difference. What’s also interesting is how Thompson had less time in the pocket to pass compared to AM.

  38. Here is what Trump did for gas prices. His actions are the reason we are where we are now. Of course, anyone that bent a knee to Trump will acknowledge this, nor would they take time out of spouting their Trump loving talking points to do a minute of research. Who knew alienating allies and cozying up to dictators could have such long term affects and repercussions even after TFG left office, you lose a friend's trust, you lose that friend. Price of gas: How Trump's manipulation of oil policies reaped profits for Putin and fossil-fuel benefactors | The Milwaukee Independent It was a double-whammy for two of then-President Donald Trump’s biggest patrons, Vladimir Putin and American fossil-fuel billionaires and their industry: the price of oil was too low. Between the pandemic-induced collapse in demand for oil and the price war Saudi Arabia was then fighting with Russia — two of the world’s largest producers — Putin was being pinched badly. And in America, from Pennsylvania to Texas, oil producers were outright losing money on the oil they pumped. Gas prices were at record lows, gutting the profits even of refiners. So, Trump acted. It seemed inexplicable at the time, but in retrospect — knowing now how tied to Putin he was — it makes perfect sense. In the second year of his presidency, Trump had blown up the Iran nuclear deal that Obama had a hand in fashioning, letting us all think it was because he was trying to erase Obama’s legacy. But the real and immediate impact of Trump’s decision was to pull almost 3 million barrels of Iranian oil a day off the world market, boosting profits for Russia, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. fossil fuel industry. But that was 2018 and by 2020 prices were again sagging — and thus about 40 percent of the total revenue/income to Russia’s economy was sagging — as demand dropped because of the pandemic. Saudi Arabia was making the situation worse for Putin, keeping their oil production high to compete with Russia for worldwide market share, particularly in Chinese oil markets, and in retaliation for Russia refusing to go along with price-supporting production cuts. Oil prices had fallen as low as $15 a barrel because Saudi Arabia had opened their spigots full-on, according to Reuters: So Trump took decisive action. He called up his buddy, Prince Mohammed Bin Salman of Saudi Arabia, and essentially threatened that if MBS did not cut production — and thus raise worldwide oil prices, which would help out Putin and U.S. petrobillionaires, the United States would reconsider its seven-decade-long military support for the kingdom. As Reuters reported on April 30, 2020, in an article titled Special Report: Trump told Saudi: Cut Oil Supply or Lose U.S. Military Support: Oil-drenched Republican Senators Kevin Cramer and Dan Sullivan had drafted legislation to pull U.S. troops out of Saudi Arabia, giving Trump the club he could wield against the Saudis to help out both Putin and the U.S. oil industry that was seeing bankruptcies spread across the country. Thus, in the last year of his presidency, Trump oversaw the worldwide cuts in oil production that would lead to today’s prices soaring well past $130 a barrel. Which brings us to today, with oil prices soaring. When President Biden tried to reach out to our allies, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, to ask them to restore the production they’d cut under threat from Trump, both refused to take his call, according to press reports. Meteor Blades reported at Daily Kos that The Wall Street Journal laid it out: The outcome is predictable. Saudi Arabia and Russia keep oil production tight to keep oil prices and profits high, while President Biden is attacked from every direction in the U.S. for high prices at the pump. Republican politicians grandstand on the issue and hammer it daily into the news, blaming the increased price of gasoline on a president who’s trying to both get Iranian oil back on the market and increase Saudi production. The high price of gas and diesel, meanwhile, keep jacking up U.S. inflation, giving the GOP another lead pipe to hit Democrats over the head with. Neither of Biden’s efforts to lower oil prices are working, though, as the result of Trump’s two gutless actions on behalf of his patrons. The Iranian talks are bogged down — the Iranians can see what happens to a country that gives up its nukes just by turning on the news and looking at Ukraine — and Saudi Arabia wants Biden to come on bended knee and approve of their slaughter in Yemen, something that would be very costly to American moral standing in the world. The result is more money for Putin’s war machine and the Saudi crown prince, and a significant increase in the chances an oil-industry-friendly Republican Congress will be installed next year and a Putin/Saudi-friendly Republican President will win election in 2024. Trump may be long out of power, but the impact of his corrupt treachery lives on

  45. I've noticed Republicans play this game A LOT. People have well-justified concerns about some of the increasingly extremist positions the GOP holds on various issues. Defenders swoop in to cry foul and claim anyone with those fears are just being hyperbolic alarmists. Just like the did with Roe. "They said it's settled law. Worrying about Roe is ridiculous." Then it happens and nobody owns up to anything they said before. Claiming they won't go after Griswold or Eisenstadt (which enshrine the right to contraceptives) on the basis "Alito said he won't" is lunacy. Because, like the vast majority of politicians, the conservatives on SCOTUS are gutless liars and hypocrites who only care about the power they can wield and to what ends.
