Re: Masks now required for voting

And if I don't, since its a federal judge's order, will the FBI come after me? Not so much a federal judge’s order as it is an invalidation of a section in the governor’s mandate. The judge is not mandating masks, rather he is claiming one of the gov’s exemptions puts an extra burden on P(s)OC. I h...

Re: Amy Coney Barrett

https://www.click2houston.com/news/politics/2020/10/26/senate-to-confirm-barrett-for-court-in-highly-partisan-vote/ Dems ask Pense to not show up for ACB vote due to his aide having Covid. This indicates to me that they think they are going to be able to convince enough Republicans to either vote a...

Re: "School Sponsored" scope....

I cannot find it right now, but Charles has gone into this at length before. If I remember his explanation correctly, he explains that it can only apply to places where the school has control of the property to begin with. Much as the example given about the office building, consider a zoo or museum...

Re: Railroad commissioner

TAM, I have several rules for how I vote. On general principles, my first rule is to not vote in any race where there is only one person running. Something about having an uncontested race bothers me and this way at least it will not be a unanimous decision. I then vote for the specific people who I...

Re: Amy Coney Barrett

I don't think any Dem Senators need to be in attendance, either for the committee vote, or the floor vote on Monday to have a Quorum. They can just sit this out, and look like the spoiled children that they are. Sen. Kennedy from Louisiana, said that Shumer should just just file a hurt feelings rep...

Re: Infographic: Covid vs other pandemics in history

One of the first hints that the chart is not truly useful is the misuse of the word pandemic. To be a pandemic, it must occur in multiple places, so a Japanese smallpox epidemic would never make the pandemic definition. Another problem with it is that it is comparing disparate data. The number of ye...

Re: Richest people in the world 1990-2020

It is interesting. To me, watching the names I know and how they made their money, it is a very interesting commentary on how the economy changes over time. I would have to look up the rest of the people and see what fields they are in to verify my initial impression, but the growth of technology ov...

Re: Honey Badger "temporarily" ok again

I voted last election on one issue, court appointments. As far as I was concerned he could spend his time at Mar A Lago playing golf the entire time until a vacancy came up. I haven't been disappointed so far (other than I wish that Gorsuch and Kavanaugh had been a little more on the constitutional...

Re: Lead hardness tester

I was unaware that I have to justify my purchases to anybody, but here we are... You don't ever have to justify your purchases. Well, unless you are married and the spouse is the one questioning it. I guess you might have to explain it to the IRS if you took a deduction for it, but that more of an ...

Re: Judicial elections

If it appears on your ballot when you go to vote, you are eligible to vote in that election. The actual ballots are customized to just match where you live. On the county sample ballot, it probably includes all of the races anywhere in the county. For the Supreme Court and Court of Criminal Appeals,...

Re: Honey Badger "temporarily" ok again

Is anyone else thinking about what happens four years from now, even if Trump wins? At some point Democrats who want to take away our guns are going to win an election. Then What?!?!?! :mad5 A 5/4 or 6/3 Supreme Court. Chas. :iagree: But it makes me feel better when somebody as astute as Mr. Cotten...

Re: Why is the Texas Republican Party trying to stop drive-thru voting?

I got one of the benefits of living in a rural small town this morning. I left my home at 9:20 to go vote. When I got there, my name did not show up in the computer as a registered voter. They checked the paper printouts, though, and there I was. So i got to vote, but they had to tell the voting com...

Re: Amy Coney Barrett

On a related topic, she’s extremely impressive. Her demeanor, her responses, and her basic judicial philosophy are all I could have hoped for in a SCOTUS nominee. I agree. Even if I did not agree with her philosophy (and I do), I think her demeanor and general responses would convince me she should...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

https://projects.economist.com/us-2020-forecast/president 91% chance Trump will lose says the Economist. This is a much better chance than he had in 2016 against Hillary. In that election the Washington Post said at about the same point that he had no chance whatsoever of winning. The problem appea...
