Yeah, but he’s unlikely to win the nomination, especially if DeSantis runs. Trump’s antics worked in 2016. But right now it’s just rubbing even many of his supporters the wrong way. There is some real Trump-fatigue out there with this guy constantly in the news.
He also got into the race way way too soon. But probably some legal and finan…[Read more]

Blaming inflation on people getting raises.
Can’t let the peasants make too much money, right! Messes up their system!
Economy is heading towards recession. And not even abortion is going to top that issue.
And we have a president that says the economy won’t improve until Ukraine wins the war.

They didnt say regulations themselves are unconstitutional. They are saying such regulations or authority need to be approved by congress.
It’s that same old problem….Congress wont act. So the president tries to act through executive fiat. He gets sued and knocked down.
Wash rinse repeat.
But that is how our government is set up. Separation…[Read more]
For all intents and purposes, communists and Marxists are the same thing.
They said 50 years ago that they were going to dedicate all their energy to overturning Roe v Wade. They said that a half-century ago. And now you think it’s radical that a political party actually followed through with a promise?
One thing that seems to be materializing is that the needle of the Roberts court has become more anti-federal over the years. They didn’t do it here specifically in this case, but they may say that federal government lacks constitutional authority to make such sweeping healthcare determinations……in either way on issues like abortion. That…[Read more]

If we have a right to medical privacy in the Constitution, does that mean I have a constitutional right to refuse a vaccination?
The Constitution does not mention “abortion.” It does not mention “privacy.” And it does not mention anything with healthcare. Yet we are going to have the Supreme Court issue a ruling that establishes a constitutional…[Read more]
jerry611 replied to the topic Joe Biden, October 2019: As president, I will codify Roe into law in the forum General Discussion 5 months ago
Even when Democrats have had strong majorities, they dont codify Roe. They say at election time, but then get in office and do their real priorities. Maybe it would have been prudent to push for codifying Roe in 2009 instead of the Ledbetter Act that hasn’t done anything to close the wage gap.
I also think a LOT of people got complacent. They…[Read more]
It’s gotten to the point that two sides can’t even agree on simple philosophies and functions of government. Complete disagreement on large interpretations of the constitution.
Half the country sees the 2nd amendment as an individual right to own a gun. The other half does not see that at all.
Half the country sees abortion as a constitutional…[Read more]

Gas is approaching $8 a gallon in some parts of California. The stock market lost 900 pts today and now in bear territory. We have a baby formula shortage. We have a tampon shortage. Rent is soaring out of control. Interest rates are up. Food costs are up. Not to mention we have increasing political instability, a clueless president with approval…[Read more]
What bill do you want that would pass the Senate?
I don’t think they realize the train that’s coming right at them. I’m sitting here watching this Jan 6th nonsense on prime time and wall to wall coverage on cable news when polls show this doesn’t rank anywhere near the top of the issues voters care about. No one in the middle class gives a flying fuck about some riot 18 months ago (certainly not…[Read more]

jerry611 replied to the topic Democrats Are Mounting a Response to the Great Replacement Theory in the forum General Discussion 5 months ago
The obsession with identity politics by the Democratic party establishment has fully played into that conspiracy theory…..some may even claim intentionally. I’d also argue that it has worsened race issues and relations these past 20 years.
It also isn’t working politically as well as they thought 10 years ago. Sure changing demographics might…[Read more]
I hear this a lot as some way to justify gun bans, but its a poor legal argument for a number of reasons. There is no legal requirements to define what is a militia and who is part of it. I mean if you really want to stick with that interpretation, what’s to stop a red state from simply forming a “militia” and allowing any citizen to join it? So…[Read more]
They found a few polls that show a majority are against transgenders competing in women’s sports. And they think they hit the jackpot. They think this is the ticket to really land a punch on the LGBT community.
Of course they never gave a crap about women sports before this (and still don’t). These were the same people who have been whining about…[Read more]

They made sure to vote to send $40 billion to Ukraine while lecturing Americans to just go out and buy a $60,000 electric car as an answer to inflating gas prices.
Now they moved back to the “coup.”

The Democrats play the same game with their own progressive voters that the GOP plays with their own far-right voters.
It’s easy for the House to push progressive bills knowing they won’t go any further, but it energizes the base and makes them think they are trying. However, if they have the votes to do it, they won’t actually do it. They will…[Read more]
Red flag laws are only effective if the shooter is known to the system. Many times they have no criminal record at all. I don’t remember which one it was, but one of the mass shooters some years back never even got a speeding ticket. What red flag law or background check would catch him?
Such laws also doesnt stop a person from acquiring the…[Read more]
