Narc @ 10:01 True. On the other hand, how many billion dollar warships have they accidentally crashed into slow moving cargo ships lately?

narc @ 9:50 A little humility would go a long way towards remedying a lot of what’s wrong in DC and in the state capitals and in the MSM newsrooms. But I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting to see it.

Was it the Supreme Court's job to kill Kelo or does it fall to Congress and/or the individual states? If it’s not, then we might as well disband the Court. If they won’t uphold one of the most basic principles of a free society - that the state cannot simply steal from one citizen on a whim to give it to another - then there is no pretense of any rule of law.

the worst decision of our lifetime That’s a tough call. There are so many decisions in the last half century that defy any logic, shred the constitution, make a mockery of the English language and attack any semblance of basic human dignity.

It's like they actively want to commit financial suicide: The nearly 500,000 students enrolled in the California State University system’s 23 campuses should expect to pay full price for tuition this fall. A spokeswoman for the system told The College Fix via email that tuition is expected to remain at the regular price despite the system’s decision to remain virtual for the fall 2020 semester. “There are no plans to reduce tuition and campus-based mandatory fees at this time,” said CSU spokeswoman Toni Molle. “One of the benefits of announcing our planning now is to allow for additional professional development opportunities for faculty and staff over the summer which lead to the best possible learning experience that we can provide for students.” https://www.thecollegefix.com/california-state-university-no-plans-to-reduce-fall-tuition-despite-keeping-classes-online/ Why on Earth would ANYONE pay full tuition - and "mandatory campus-based fees" to attend a school that's conducting its classes entirely online?

I just got an email from you to my work email but nothing's attached there.

Demonizing traditionally regarded as "male" traits and values is a HUGE mistake. It's one that our education system and our media and our political class has jumped in on with both feet for the past 3+ decades. There really does need to be a Nuremberg-trials style reckoning one of these days for all these Marxist criminals who have done incalculable damage to our society.

Even the name, "Forward virginia" is communist. I hate these people so effing much, I don't have the vocabulary to adequately express it.

Here are the lunatic rules businesses here in Communist-occupied Arlington, VA must follow, or go broke: https://www.virginia.gov/coronavirus/forwardvirginia

#1 "The Week" is a worthless rag that publishes mostly morons and moronic drivel, so why on Earth give it any credence? #2 Scarborough is a total weirdo creep and he probably did kill that intern or at least have involvement in her death. It might be 20 years late bringing it up but better late than never. #3 As CH says, the only way to deal with the Dems and the MSM is to be on offense all the time. Anything else is unilateral disarmament and we all know how well that works out. You can check out the glorious histories of the Dole, McCain and Romney presidencies for further evidence of that.

Jake Tapper is either ignorant of history or he is truly stupid in most things I don’t think this is an either/or question, JiB

The Constitution says you have a right to a job? Sure it does! It’s written right there in the Penumbra Amendment. I’m sure Chief Justice Roberts could point it out for you.

What nobody's told me, or if they did I just ignored it as part of the overload of crap that some of you dutifully copied and pasted here, is a succinct description about what made this different. What makes it different is (1) the hardest hit place in this country is New York City, which for most of the media is the only important place in the whole country, and (2) it came at the perfect time to undermine a President the media utterly despises.

CH @ 8:00 There's a good reason pride is one of the seven deadly sins.

True, CH, but that gets back to the generational failure of their (and our) Top Men. They might have had no options in 1999, but they had half a century after Mao came to power to think of some, and they either couldn't, or didn't bother to try.

Last British governor says Hong Kong ‘betrayed’ by China The British betrayed them by honoring a stupid treaty that they had to know the CCP would never adhere to as far as its promises towards the rights of Hong Kong. But then, their Top Men are just as stupid or willfully blind or bought out by the CCP as ours are.

What is it with Bill Gates, Aaron Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, etc. wanting to control people? They’re just Karen’s with infinitely more money and power. Any of my neighbors would do the same things they’re doing, if they had the means.

MM @7:40 Given everything you’ve told us about your ex-husband, I’d guess that the accountant he used was probably not doing everything totally A-OK.

My point from the beginning is that the most lasting damage to our economic way of life is that, now that any hick politician can close any targeted business he does not like on a whim and without any sort of due process or other constitutional protections, is that the entire basis of our economy is now seen by all to be on thin ice. Without due process, and without anything even vaguely resembling a public discussion of costs and benefits, and with open derision of the Constitution, and with the full-throated support of 99% of Democrats and the MSM and around half the electorate. That’s terrifying to any business or commercial real estate owner, I would think.

The new measure is meant to prevent citizens from being tempted to slack off in compliance with government norms just because no uniformed police are present, since anyone could be an informant. I literally can’t think of a more effective way to completely destroy public trust and unravel the fabric of a society than that.

One of my sisters is a surgery nurse and she is a Trump supporter. She has gone "Hair on Fire" mode every time I start griping about this lockdown thing. She thinks the virus is a real danger. The thing is, it can be a real danger and still not merit the lockdown and all the other madness we’ve seen over the past 2+ months. Except as a society (as a world, really) we seem to have lost the ability to think about anything except in an all or nothing mode. And what really depressed me is that even if the Democrats weren’t out and out Marxists, and the MSM wasn’t a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DNC, we’d still have that problem because of 24/7 news requiring constant and ever more sensationalist content at an ever louder volume, and social media that seems expressly designed to amplify and accelerate the worst aspects of human nature and groupthink and the madness of crowds. And I can’t begin to imagine what might be done to reverse that.

Ext, the CCP pretty much always goes for the most draconian option as the default policy option. It’s not as though they have any regard for human life or basic rights or anything like freedom.

I so hope after the pandemic quiets down, there is a open, honest and frank discussion about what killed the young people, and many of the black people, and not an insignificant number of old people too I so hope I win the Powerball jackpot tonight, and with odds of 1 in 292 million, I think that’s a lot more likely to happen than any open and honest discussion about the pandemic.
