Re: White House sparks primary firestorm by pushing South Carolina for top spot

There's no iron clad law that says it must be Iowa and New Hampshire who have this outsize role in primaries every 4 years. It's not impossible to grab the ring if you lose those 2 states, but ... it sure gets harder. Do these states really adequately represent the rest of the nation? I don't think ...

Re: Biden asks Congress to force rail agreement

The Republican solution, just like Raygun did with the air traffic controllers, would just be to fire them all.

White supremacism is an ideology, not a race or phenotype.

And as it has been pointed out, you don't even have to be white to subscribe to the ideology.

I think his lawyers are just trolling the libs, but even if they weren't, that's the most original defense I think I've seen since the infamous Twinkie defense.

He's still a mass murderer, whether binary, nonbinary, or hexadecimal. :roll:
