Not wearing the mask properly is not helping.
Neither is it useful to wear a mask when outdoors and being distant from others.

Again, Gorsuch writes the majority opinion. Bet Trump is fuming about "his" justice. Rule of Law!

It certainly can’t hurt and it does send a signal.

Funny, it appears the anti-mask, anti-lockdown mobs have been surprisingly quiet recently.

With that logic, one might as well wear a condom all day long.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Sharpiegate surfaces again, this was the time Trump altered a weather map with a black pen to incorrectly show Hurricane Dorian hitting Alabama.

Quote:
The Commerce Department Inspector General on Thursday delivered a harsh rebuke of the department in a new report detailing how pressure from the White House prompted a statement from the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration contradicting a local National Weather Service office during Hurricane Dorian in 2019.

"The broader, longer-term consequence is that NOAA's rebuke of the NWS Birmingham office could have a chilling effect on NWS forecasters' future public safety messages, as well as undercut public trust in NWS forecasts," the report states.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Just stumbled upon this in a German musicians forum. It's from 1940.

I wonder if it belongs here as well:

It doesn't harm either. And the wearer must be happy, everyone else doesn't need to care.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

From a famous female astronaut

"Es kann sein, dass wir nach der falschen Sache suchen»
Sie forscht nach Zivilisationen im Weltraum: Die Astrophysikerin Jill Tarter sagt, wie eine ausserirdische Gesellschaft aussehen könnte – und wie man sie finden kann."

"We may be looking for the wrong thing.
She is researching civilizations in space: astrophysicist Jill Tarter says what an extraterrestrial society could look like - and how you can find it.
"

One does not have to look far. They have orange dimpled faces and live in a big white house in Wahington!

It's completely irrelevant whether you agree to a given legal situation or not, it is what it is. Claiming to know better than what the nation at hand arrived at in a more or less democratic way is arrogance and self-aggrandisation in epic proportions.

Not sure how many 5yr-olds were there, but anyway:
Every parent who takes their child to a protest should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for intentionally and recklessly putting their child in harms way.

You're saying that some people's rights are more important than other people's rights.
That's the mindset of racism, which you so eloquently pretend to be against. So which is it?


If only people read what they link.

The couple is described as "victims" by the police, no force was used by them. However the gate got destroyed, clearly a use of force.

Also from your link:
"Anders Walker, a constitutional law professor at St. Louis University, told the Post-Dispatch that Missouri's Castle Doctrine makes what the McCloskeys did legal, albeit dangerous."
and further
"There's no right to protest on those streets," Walker explained. "The protesters thought they had a right to protest, but as a technical matter, they were not allowed to be there."
"It’s essentially a private estate. If anyone was violating the law, it was the protesters. In fact, if [the McCloskeys] have photos of the protesters, they could go after them for trespassing."
Warming up!

Authorities in St. Louis have executed a search warrant at the home of the couple who made national headlines when they brandished a pair of guns at Black Lives Matter protestors who were marching past their house.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Former special counsel Robert Mueller, the top lawyer who led the Russia investigation, has been silent since he testified reluctantly under subpoena to Congress last July. Now he has defended his teams' findings on President Trump's associate Roger Stone on Saturday after Trump moved to commute his sentence.

"[Stone] remains a convicted felon, and rightly so," Mueller wrote in a Washington Post op-ed.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I missed the following important Supreme Court decision that was part of their review of Trump's cases on subpoenas.
"The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously rejected (by 9-0) the Trump team’s extreme view that, as president, Trump is “absolutely immune” from any subpoena and, therefore, is above the law".

Very rare to have 9-0 Supreme Court decisions.

Although the Supreme Court rejected the Congress subpoenas requesting Trump's financial details they sent the case back to the lower courts with some clues about what Congress should change to make the subpoenas acceptable.
So Trump is not off this hook yet, but likely no final decision before the election.
