Re: Coronavirus: Look to the governors

Yesterday, Mrs. FRP was looking at an article about the oral arguments before the Wisconsin Supreme Court on a case where a business owner is challenging Governor Evers' mask order. She sent me the link. One of my best friends from law school (a conservative, to be sure, but a reasonable and super ...

Re: Jacob Wohl / Jack Burkman - hopelessly incompetent smear merchants

When I was 22 I just got honorably discharged from the Navy and was attending a Community College near by home. Eventually, I transferred to a State University where I received my B.A. i...

Re: 2020 Election Lawsuits

Re: Butterflies and puppy dogs and being nice - repair the divide!

A couple of historical quibbles: 1) We Americans have a bad habit of declaring victory too soon. I would argue the Civil War actually wasn't won, because the aftermath left us with another 100+ years of white southern hegemony over blacks under cover of law. Fundamentally, the country is still divid...

Re: When Trump loses 2020 and refuses to accept the results…

As far as I can tell, there's absolutely nothing preventing Trump from getting John Ratcliffe to read him in on as much highly-classified sources-and-methods intelligence as possible, and then selling that information to the highest bidder in order to settle with his creditors. I mean, yes, that's ...
