Re: Trump Selects Amy Coney Barrett for SCOTUS

This is a 2009 opinion piece by Stephen Carter, a professor of law at Yale Law School and a former clerk to Associate Justice Thurgood Marshall. He makes some excellent points why a Supreme Court nominee should not testify. Since the Democrats have threatened not to participate any way; and since th...

Re: Trump Selects Amy Coney Barrett for SCOTUS

Taking bets that there are no hearings and McConnell takes it straight to an up-or-down vote. That would literally make lib heads explode.

Re: Trump Selects Amy Coney Barrett for SCOTUS

I don't think there is a right to abortion in the Constitution. That is not what I'm talking about. What I'm talking about is that, regardless, the American People oppose overturning Roe vs. Wade by a about a 2:1 margin. This is not a good move politically. Oh please, she is way smart enough to dod...

Re: Trump Selects Amy Coney Barrett for SCOTUS

So what. SCOTUS diesn’t issue rulings according to polls. If they did, a number if past rulings would have been different. I can’t find in the Constitution where it stated there’a right to abortion. Unless you can show me where I missed it, seems like a States’ Rights issue to me. I don't think the...

Re: Here We Go Again (Louisville)

Wait a second.

This wasn't a "no-knock" warrant??

They announced themselves, and then got shot at? And an officer was indicted for returning too many shots?

Doesn't the whole narrative fall apart if the police announced themselves?

Is "Karen" Cash The Worse Player of the Modern Era?

Kevin "Karen" Cash has a career OPS+ of 37. That seems to make him the worse baseball player of the live-ball era. The only player I can find with a lower OPS+ is a catcher by the name of Bill Bergen, who played during the dead-ball era. Can anyone find a worse player than "Karen" Cash? I wouldn't b...

Despite having the lowest payroll in MLB, they are competitive. Whoever is in charge of pitcher development with that organization is th...
