Topic: California loses right to set emissions standards.

Except when California decides to set higher emissions standards than the rest of the US. Then it's time for the Fed to step in and squash it. Hey, if the feds have to step in and squash something, it should at least be something which is morally wrong, like emissions standards... If we’re applying...

Nature had a way before that and do you know what caused invasive species? We did. Nature's way is local species killing invasive species. So if I shoot an annoying pigeon with a shotgun, that's nature's way. Nah, natures way is that you bare manhandle that flying rat into submission the way nature...

I sense that this is directly connected to the situation going on with BMW, Ford, Honda and Volkswagen wanting to go with California’s emission standards over Trump’s unnecessarily lax standards which just shines an even bigger light on Trump’s pettiness. Supremacy clause. I dont believe there is a ...

So much for consistency. And nothing fights socialists and communists better than raping nuns. Since when is it inconsistent for a libertarian to rebel against tyranny? All wars are bound to harm civilians in some capacity, but that does not mean the conflict was intended to harm civilians. Rebelli...

To me, this is like a state supreme court in the US declaring something the federal .gov did unlawful. Is this even allowed in the UK?

Entirely relevant, because if there’s little to no benefit in leaving then why leave at all? But maybe, just maybe they should leave because the people made their wish clear and the government vouched to respect it?

If they answered it honestly then it's an indication of what they potentially believe. It usually tells me i am a sweet and cute left-liberal in the green bloc or near the center.

I am not so sure about that. It often appears though as if one things leads to another. I am in either case no friend of libertarians or the religious right for sure. ^^ The real problem with the libertarians in general is lack of empathy.

Wrong. Backrolled by people who have a different understanding and idea of the constitution. They are not authoritarians and totalitarians. They believe usually in a minimal role of the state. Most of them actually believe in the founding ideals of the United States. Just in a different way than yo...

I don’t know if you remember at all but I’m entirely against authoritarianism and totalitarianism in all its forms, even “utopian” forms in works of fiction that wouldn’t exist in real life, which is great about fiction in that you can make your fictional society whatever you want separate from rea...

The 50 Prince Electors have cast their votes, and they have chosen Donald Trump to be the Imperial President of the Holy American Empire.
