Another Ballplayer chimes in, "I don't get the need for all the padding one of your crickters...if thats what you call them.. wear? Its not as if the thrower is going to send one high tight and inside to knock you on your ass for digging in. You're not exaclty facing Early Wynn, Three Fingers ...

"Cricket? Isn't that a game played by nations who's menfolk can't throw a ball overhand, and speeds of 90+MPH?" David Watts, an avid cricket fan if there ever was one, overhears this. My good man, I'll have you know that the delivery speeds are similar for both sports with the fastest bow...

What I think should have been included in such a resolution is the guarantee that those punished while the law was active would be required to complete their sentence if said law were repealed. What you're talking about aren't ex post facto laws though. This resolution is limited to only dealing wi...

I'm going to have to vote no on this one. I like the idea, and even support it. The thing is, I can't figure out why you've left an ex post facto provision in the proposal. Ironic, isn't it? It has to be there in order to ensure the release of persons already convicted under ex post facto laws. The...

So the resolutions were not Ex Post Facto laws, they were just applied in an Ex Post Facto manner. Probably not sound legal practice, and I question the validity of prosecutions carried out in that manner, but that's not really what we're aiming to ban here. I do not see why we shouldn't be aiming ...

I merely think the wording needs to be re-done in order to clarify the specifics to it.
