    Nah, it was a young Stephen Wright joke.

    It's all relative.

    What Have You Watched Recently?

    The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Riverdale (b/c of the first)Season 1, starting season 2. Both better than expected. Sabrina's the better of the two.

    An acre is easy to picture. Just picture a rectangle that's one chain by one furlong.

    I think they'd have shot those people anyway. It's what they do. I think the bigger issue is that we're propping up groups like the Nigerian Army in an effort to fight the extremists, when they're no better. Our government has a long history of doing that, and has continued to do so under every administration in recent history.

    I'm pretty sure posse comitatus prevents both. (For regular Army at least. Not state Guard units.Pretty sure they were talking about sending RA, but could be wrong.) They can't act as law enforcement on the border. All they can do is provide logistical support. Even if Trump gives the orders, the commanders are obligated to disregard unlawful orders.

    And that tends to be the tone of Vox. I just figured I'd point out their citations in case you didn't see them

    I'm not sure if you saw it, because it's at the bottom of the page, but the second Vox article Sociotard linked cites this article (also on Vox), which lists 13 cases before federal courts of appeals. Any of those could potentially go to the Supreme Court. I'm not sure if any of those would actually spell doom for Roe vs. Wade, but Vox does provide some cases to look at. I'm more wait and see on this one, as the SCOTUS doesn't overrule itself very often. And Ginsberg seems to be a pretty tough lady, so I think she can hang in there a bit longer.

    That sounds far too clever for a Trump appointee.

    If they had Caravans*, they'd probably have the energy to do something naughty when they get here, but I think most of them will be half dead and little threat to anyone. Those that survive the whole trip. *Much better than walking:

    We have expensive gas here, and our roads suck. None of the money seems to get to the potholes.

    Question on pathfinder

    Although they do have some interesting twists, I agree. However, throwing around huge gobs of polyhedral dice never gets old.

    That's not going to happen, for a huge number of reasons.

    Maybe Snart and Rory need to help him break out.

    Looks like two of the stupider state initiatives are going to pass. Hopefully, they'll both get shot down in court. I'm getting a bit tired of these half-baked initiatives getting on the ballot and passed with out of state money.
