    If they wanted to live under Sharia law, then why would they be fleeing from ISIS controlled territory and its Sharia law and becoming refugees?

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Please point out the part that limits that to firearms & allows outlawing the possession of “crew-served weapons.”

    Reminds me of the story “written” by Kurt Vonnegut’s character Kilgore Trout in “Slaughterhouse Five” about a similar tree. It had $20s for leaves to attract people so that they would kill each other around it & it could use their remains as fertilizer.

    I’ll grant you MSNBC & the Huffington Post. But CNN is neutral; failing to swallow GOP BS whole is not bias. And studies have shown that regular Fox “News” viewers are the least informed segment of the public, and Fox News’ misstatements and outright lies have been documented by multiple sources time and time again. And most of the time, Fox lets them slip without correction, because it fits the agenda. And don’t forget the $1M contribution to the Republican Governor’s Association. The bias is not only clear, it dwarfs anything done on the other side, which at least (for the most part) either attempts neutrality or at least does not outright lie & intentionally misinform its audience.

    How would he use the knife?

    Everyone focuses on the words ‘militia’, and ‘well-regulated’. No one discusses the word ‘infringe.’ That word carries a tacit sense of wrongfulness. Are a reasonable set of laws and regulations on gun ownership and use an ‘infringement’, any more than laws against libel and slander are ‘infringements’ of the First Amendment? I am not sure that one could argue that they are.

    If preventing fraud was the GOP objective, then why have they:
    1. Prevented motor voter registration? If a Photo ID is all you need, and most people’s photo ID is a driver’s license, then why not combine the two? If preventing fraud were the object, then the GOP should embrace this. Instead, then block it.
    2. Combine voting districts and move voting locations in districts that vote Democratic. If preventing fraud were the objective, then combining districts would be the LAST thing you’d do. Instead, it discourages the “wrong” kind of voting.
    3. Prevent early voting while allowing absentee ballots. What possible connection is there between early voting and fraud? And if there is some connection, then why does it NOT affect absentee ballots, which logically would be an excellent avenue for organized fraud? Instead, the military makes heavy use of absentee ballots, and the military tends to vote GOP.

    In short, the GOP claims of merely trying to ensure voting “integrity” do not survive even the most cursory analysis, and conservative focus (such as yours) on only the most “reasonable” small aspect of their voter suppression campaign, while ignoring the parts that make no sense given the supposed justification, simply do not make sense.

    Though it is wrong now, it was debatable at the time, not wrong. The question at the time was whether space was curved or flat; i.e. was there enough mass to complete stop expansion & begin to collapse, or was expansion going to continue asymptotically forever.

    Please don’t feed the troll; that only encourages it.

    Turn the comment around. How do you think the USA is going to remain competitive in the 21st century without strategically paying for this? Other countries will eat our lunch in the technological industries of the near future without it.
