BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Your post is almost word for word what I was going to post, right down to the “I’m no finance guy.” But yeah, greater concentration of wealth in the 1% in comparison to everyone else seemingly should result in increased tax share.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

These P25 people are just so…hateful. Carrying all that hate seems like it would not be fun.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Florida with its Republican supermajority is about to join the gotta provide your ID to do anything Republicans publicly feign indignation over and privately enjoy themselves. So much for less government interference. Hypocrites.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Meanwhile in the US the NSA just hoovering up every bit of data ever.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Hmm I see what the dictionaries are saying but (using an example from above) I think argument exists that:

If me and my fellow protestors block a road, we are being non-violent, but we are not being peaceful.

But it’s Friday and no time for argument!

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

I see a lot of other people have responded with examples and argument.

So I’ll disagree and say the argument falls apart when I don’t argue. (Cause it’s Friday. You ain’t got no job. You ain’t got shit to do. I’m gonna get you high today.)

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Early to mid 20th century??! Dang, double space was seemingly still very much in fashion even after Y2K. Welp, gotta go yell at some kids on my lawn.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Remember when Trump moved the US embassy to Jerusalem declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel? People are kill-informed if they think things get better for the Palestinians under Trump 2.0.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Why so serious citizen?

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

“She also said: 'I love my son Tyler, who has been through some very difficult, public challenges for a young man and the subject of attention that he didn’t ask for.”’

I don’t condone the alleged actions but I’d rather not have the 18y.o. kid/young adult’s bad choices splayed across national media outlets. Unfortunately for him, while he didn’t ask for the public attention, his mother’s incessant need for attention all but guarantees anything he does will not stay a private or just locally known matter. His “public challenges” likely would not be so public but for his mother’s narcissism.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

The Hunter witch-hunt disgusts me as well and I understand and at times agree with the not always being the bigger person sentiment. But for me, this is not one of those times. The kid is not the hypocrite, it’s his mother. And I label her a hypocrite not for her son’s actions but her own.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

“But at the same time this kid is 18. He’s young and stupid, who cares? Stupid kid does stupid things and is dumb enough to get caught.”

Perhaps though if it was you or me (at that age) or any teenager off the street, it’s not national “news.” Many people grow up to regret youthful indiscretions, and fortunately most of those acts didn’t become national headlines that follow one forever. (I’m just not a fan of every act in this digital age being preserved on the internet in perpetuity. A prime example are those parasitic websites that scrape arrest records to then extort those who have been arrested (whether or not eventually found innocent at trial or charges dismissed)).

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

If a person has a pending charge and pick up a new one unrelated to the first, unless there is some procedural or legal conflict, the two cases can be (and often are) combined for judicial expediency as it will be the same judge and prosecutor (and public defender if that applies) on both cases. Also, sometimes one jury can hear both charges, and sometimes they need to be tried separately, and that can depend on a variety of factors.

“MacArthur signs statement declaring that Jesus hates people who don’t hate LGBTQs.”

Growing up I was taught Jesus was about love, acceptance, peace, helping others, etc. All good traits worthy of promoting (whether in a religious or secular manner). One good thing about the internet is that it has shown me others to whom I would never be exposed, and just how terrible some can be. (And how great others can be as well.)

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

If you want to know if an issue has real potential consequences, in this instance climate change, see what insurance companies are doing about it. Live in a state where wildfires or hurricanes are an issue? As droughts increase and ocean temperatures increase, your homeowners insurance is going up significantly faster than ever before. Insurance companies exist to make money and they spend huge sums in actuarial predictions to keep making that money.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Please use that betting money to sponsor the ACLU so they can sponsor a case.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Hey AG Ken Paxton, what happened to less government in private affairs? This is a parenting issue. Are you now all for the nanny state? Or is it the ol double standard of government interference is ok but only in the matters which you say it’s ok? Maybe concentrate on all those pending criminal charges, or the whistleblower lawsuit, or the illegal dealings with donors, and get your hand out of everyone’s pants.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

“Even if Trump is indicted in one of his legal battles, the polling suggests he could still defeat Biden.”

He’s already been indicted. 4 times.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Wasn’t attempting to get anyone to change their mind. Simply pointing out the misstatement in the article.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Keep doing it and you’ll feel like something is missing if you skip too many days. Keep up the good work!

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

If Biden committed the acts and, as of now alleged crimes Trump has been accused of, then Biden would need to be barred too. That’s the difference with Trump supporters, the rest of us want the laws applied no matter which “team” the politician represents. It’s people over party and not the other way around.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

But also my understanding is there’s nothing in the law requiring criminal conviction for sedition or insurrection or whatever the proper term is. I’m not sure who is supposed to be the determiner of fact. I think that’s why several of the states took it upon themselves. Hence why SCOTUS is almost certainly going to have to determine some of these issues. But I also could be talking out my ass.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

Yeah man I see your comments all over the thread and it’s just you repeating the same talking points about an activity you seemingly are not currently comprehending.

BigWheelPowerBrakeSlider,

If I was a betting person, and I am, I’d bet it’s not going to make it past the first level of appeal (state appellate court), let alone get to SCOTUS. Plus, it’s a state case, not federal, so it’s even less likely to end up before SCOTUS.
