To add to this, during their various debates and declarations, state legislatures of Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia all explicitly gave slavery as the primary reason for their attempt to destroy the United States government. So literally more than half.

The Graduate.

potterpockets,

Youd be surprised by the number of people i have talked to that dont pick up on that.

potterpockets,

He’s playing Cwazy Cupcakes with God now.

potterpockets,

I really like Ernst’s work, and am kinda surprised Holywood hasnt made a biopic about his life yet. Pretty much believed his pet bird from his childhood that died was reincarnated as his sister. Had no formal artistic training other than being interested in the art of patients living in asylums. Fought in WWI. Was part of a thrupple in France.

When WWII broke out he was arrested by the French for being German. Then France fell and he was arrested by the Gestapo for his surrealist art (and preciously having married a Jewish woman). Escaped and fled to America until the 50’s.

But only as a means to keeping/retaining their own power and campaign contributions. If the people could outspend monied interests more conveniently most would probably be out on the streets a lot more shaking hands and kissing babies.

Still easier to understand than the Silmarillion.

Well China i guess you better not shoot at or get close to them then 🤷‍♂️

potterpockets,

Not included in this article is the numerous times the US Government would kill a bunch of indigenous people and drive them off their land. Or the times we’d forcibly relocate them to small pockets of uninhabitable land and settle where they used to live.

potterpockets,

Its arguable that a significant part of the defeat of the Germans on the Eastern Front was due to the Germans loving to over-engineer things. Especially tanks. And had an obsession with having big guns on them. To the point they could only go 5-10 mph and if anything broke on it it would have to go back to Germany because the design was so weird/complex. Cant remember if it was the Rat or not, but there was even a tank where if you wanted to shoot the cannon somebody had to get out and unbolt it from the hull because it was so big it made it unwieldy to drive.

Meanwhile Soviets just said “Haha T-34 factory go brrrr”, and was easy enough to make and use that there are stories of workers completing the tanks and driving them straight to the front. Illiterate farmer Vasily from the Urals could help weld on parts and then go take part in the fight.

“Ah, yes, “Reapers” we have dismissed this claim.”

potterpockets,

I mean Armenia has basically survived since ancient history but swallowing a lot of bitter pills, and allying with countries that previously did terrible shit to them.

potterpockets,

You know it’s bad when Belgium says you have a bad human rights record.

potterpockets,

No no no. God’s will only applies to things Republicans like. Like Trump, the Bushes, etc. Anything that they dont like like the Clintons, Obama, etc. are clearly the work of THE DEVIL, and need to be eradicated with prejudice (something they are well known for).

Weird how that works isn’t it? 🤔

potterpockets,

In other news: water is wet, and this floor appears to be made of floor.

potterpockets,

Correct. Setting aside other comments made which lead myself and others to argue that this is a bad faith/cowardly ruling, they posit it only covers military officers and legislative representatives to prevent them from being able to serve. Not the executive branch.

They then go on to specify that the Commander in Chief capacity in which Trump served is in he is in charge of the military, but is a representative of the public with the military subordinated to civilian authority. Not as a military officer within the structure of the armed forces.

Therefore, per this very, very pedantic (though arguably technically correct) reading of the law, they are arguing it should not be used to bar him from being on the ballot.

It’s like saying “i dont want any berries in my food” and being served strawberries. Scientifically/technically speaking they do not meet the definition. But in common parlance, understanding, and intention they are understood to be and lumped in with them.

potterpockets,

If somebody wanted to press the issue a SoS in a state would just flat out say he isnt and force the Trump campaign to sue. Force the SC to take it up due to multiple, conflicting rulings/interpretations of the law. That might be the only way to ensure they do it in a timely manner.

That said, i dont have much faith that the SC in its current composition wouldnt just side with Trump immediately.

potterpockets,

My understanding is that that applies to other state courts making rulings, but i cant see how that apples to apples to Secretaries of State deciding that he is an invalid candidate. Which is why it would possibly force the Trump campaign to sue and push to force the SC to rule on the issue one way or the other. Because if they dont then Trump could remain off the ballot in that state.

potterpockets,

If you ever wanted any tattoos now is your chance to test em out!

potterpockets,

Well. Do you want more?
