Re: Military and Civilian Gov't

Yeah, it's old news. But the President's conduct throughout the Eddie Galagher thing has definitely not marked a high point in military-civilian relations. It's sometimes good for the military to be reminded that they're not in charge - but not so much when the reminders are coming in the form of a...

Re: UK - United Kingdom - England, Wales, Scotland, N. Ireland

I think Suranis' point is pretty much on the money. Corbyn's prevarication over Brexit is hurting Labour - they're losing votes to Lib Dems, who have staked out a firm remain position. The problem is that they're not losing enough votes to swing seats to Lib Dem, they're losing enough to swing those...

Is there a standard of evidence? Because the R talking point is that you need high definition video and audio of the President offering to release the aid in exchange for the investigation.
Conveniently for everyone, the standard is whatever each individual Senator decides it is.

Erm . . . that map doesn't show how many seats for Alaska and Hawaii.
It does show them. look under California and the the left of Texas.
It shows them as not changing but doesn't show how many seats they have, unlike the other states that have numbers.
1 for AK; 2 for HI.

Re: Soto v. Bushmaster Firearms International

Same. I was fairly sure that Roberts doesn't want firearms cases in front of the court - there's enough of a trail of cert denieds since Heller to make that clear - but I'm kind of surprised that he managed to keep at least one of the other four in that camp. I thought Kennedy was the one voting wit...

Re: LEAVE Brexit Vote: Leave EU Thu 23 June - Market and US Election Impact

My current prediction: EU refuses extension, enough - just enough - MPs decide that Johnson's deal is better than no deal, it passes sometime on the 29th or 30th. I'd very much like to be wrong, but I can't see things going any other way. Labour's been mixed on Brexit since the start, and the lack o...

I wonder, could something like SLAPP could apply here?
If an action was filed in the right state,* or if choice of law principles could bring the right state law into play? You bet your ass.


*right state from the defense perspective, that is.

You suspect a left/right driving confusion Mike? It's easily done, especially if there's little traffic around to guide one.
