  1. Biden proposes the budget, right? I think the Bill originates elsewhere. It’s either political machinations, or a huge disappointment (to both sides of the aisle, right?) to increase military spending. And after all those campaign promises, too. And he might be able to deemphasize enforcement, bring it to a halt, but he can’t sign his name and change law, and legalize it, right? My eyes are on HR1. Which sucks.
  2. This dude got picked up. Timely. Kevin Seefried, who was photographed carrying a Confederate flag in the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riots in Washington, has been indicted by a grand jury on five counts related to obstruction, entering restricted property and disorderly conduct. Seefried's son, Hunter Seefried, was also indicted. The younger Seefried faces the same five counts as his father in addition to three charges related to destruction of government property and violence on Capitol grounds. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2021/04/08/m
  3. Exactly. This country is ruled by our Constitution. We elect our President, but despising whoever occupies that office is a part of our national character. The veneration of royalty rankles. ”I don’t like Presidents and I don’t like stars” -Blaze Foley
  4. Noted, and conceded. Still, I feel lighter upon this Earth.
  5. Woman in FL who coughed on a cancer patient instead of donning a mask sentenced to thirty days in jail, a year of probation, mental health evaluation, and anger management classes. Seems reasonable to me. Assuming she didn’t infect anyone. https://amp.miamiherald.com/news/state/florida/article250551369.html?__twitter_impression=true
  6. The contrary view is not that IDs aren’t useful, but that obtaining one is onerous to a fairly large number of citizens, and so government must overcome whatever obstacles folks face and make getting IDs very easy. Not doing so raises the possibility of de facto poll taxes. An idea I like is going into underprivileged areas: your ID comes to you. I also like vats of purple dye. Purple is such a luscious color. There is the cost factor. Again, poll taxes are unconstitutional. Still, this argument is the point. Solving the problem is not. Edit: Orale is
  7. I thought the same thing. Because it irritates me that so many US citizens are infatuated with royalty, which grows the number among us who lack the aversion to autocracy.
  8. I’ve a friend who confided that he sometimes indulged in thinking through how he would HURT someone who crossed his line. Put another way, back during the Opium Wars, the Dutch would disembowel the condemned, then take out their eyes, cut off their limbs. Then hang the corpse. Humans are scary. Visiting violence upon kids or dogs? That’s when I most understand the above.
  9. He would have loved her more than Eva Braun ... (Apologies to Danny O’Keefe).
