  1. What exactly are the needs of unpopulated mountains and deserts? I seem to recall something about "of the people, by the people, for the people.".
  2. But as Hamilton told us in Federalist Paper #68, the people are too ignorant and stupid to know what's good for them and need an elite to make that decision. Tyranny of the majority - BAD Tyranny of a wealthy minority - GOOD
  3. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/supreme-court-trump-tax-returns-financial-records/2020/07/09/8f274352-c1e2-11ea-9fdd-b7ac6b051dc8_story.html Supreme Court says Manhattan prosecutor may see Trump’s personal financial records
  4. If they were easy, lawyers would be out of work.

    just a day trip. Masks required in all stores - people very good about it.
  6. I see the same chickenhawks who smeared Sen. McCain are now ramping up the smear campaign against Sen. Duckworth.

    The U.S. sets another daily record for new cases, surpassing 59,000. As President Trump continued to press for a broader reopening of the United States, the country set another record for new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, with more than 59,400 infections announced, according to a New York Times database. It was the fifth national record set in nine days. The previous record, 56,567, was reported on Friday. The country reached a total of three million cases on Tuesday as the virus continued its resurgence in the West and the South. At least five states — Missouri, Texas, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia — set single-day records for new infections on Wednesday.

    Germany reported 35 new cases per million residents over the past week; the U.S. had almost 1,100.

    Darwin plays the long game.
  10. A Madame Tussauds waxworks version of Biden would provide better leadership than Trump.
  11. A loony QAnon follower vandalized the face mask display at a Target store in Phoenix.
  12. Since we no longer have a TRUMP MUST GO thread, I post Krugman's perceptive column here: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/06/opinion/covid-19-trump.html How America Lost the War on Covid-19 It wasn’t because of our culture, it was because of our leadership.
  13. If you believe this was a mistake, I have a bridge you may wish to buy: https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/06/media/fox-news-trump-crop-epstein-maxwell/index.html Fox News says it 'mistakenly' cropped Trump out of photo featuring Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell
  14. I know that there is a difference between skydiving WITH a parachute and skydiving WITHOUT a parachute. You seem to have difficulty with the concept.
  15. NO. There is no similarity whatsoever between the presence of a graphic or heraldic element and the absence of that element. Should you ever want a coat of arms, I suggest "Weasel proper rampant reguardant on a field of tenne".
  16. No, they are standard heraldic elements as appropriate to seals, logos and trademarks. A globe is a globe and a circle with something inside it is an annulet - NOT the same thing. A ribbon or scroll with a motto in it ("Semper Fidelis") is a standard heraldic element, as is an anchor with a rope, so their absence is also meaningful. The USMC seal has both, Trump logo and Nazi symbol have neither. Educate yourself and stop looking foolish. PS your weasel is not a standard heraldic charge and being one is nothing for you to be proud of.
  17. A globe is a sphere. A circle with a design in it is not a sphere. An anchor is not a null element. A ribbon with a motto on it, in an eagle's beak is not a null element. The Trump logo has more graphic elements in common with the Nazi logo than either of them have in common with the USMC seal.
  18. And the second spinner joins in to defend the indefensible.

    Nothing a Clorox injection can't fix.
  20. In contrast, most Trumpists are just ignorant, although some are truly evil.
  21. Stop weaseling. YOU brought up "EGA" (Eagle, GLOBE and ANCHOR). Two of three elements are different from the Trump and Nazi logos, and even the eagles are different. On the other hand, both Trump and Nazis share the same two elements (Eagle and Circle) In 1954, the USMC Commandant, General Lemuel C. Shepherd, Jr., requested the design of an official seal for the corps. The new seal included the traditional Eagle, Globe, and Anchor emblem in gold, with the Globe and anchor rope in silver. The eagle is depicted with wings displayed, standing upon the western hemisphere of the terrestrial globe, and holding in his beak a white ribbon bearing the Marine Corps motto "Semper Fidelis" (Always Faithful) with the hemisphere superimposed on a fouled anchor. An American bald eagle replaced the crested eagle depicted on the 1868 emblem. The emblem is displayed on a scarlet background encircled with a blue band bearing the phrases "Department of the Navy" above and "United States Marine Corps" below in white letters, the whole edged in a gold rope U.S. President Eisenhower approved the design on June 22, 1954. The emblem as shown on the seal was adopted in 1955 as the official Marine Corps emblem.
