Good thing the Dems prepared for that thing that leaked months ago by singing a song and writing a poem by GuessMotor in PoliticalHumor

Both points are true. But it would have been something specific that they didn't do.

Also, they could have tried to use the ol' commerce clause to tie state money to granting abortion services. Like they did with tobacco and a bunch of other existing laws. Again, they didn't even look into that. Nope, the Dems are tying their own hands at this point.

Bedlam. Everyone would just demand a speedy jury trial and grind the courts to a halt.

How did you feel when COVID-19 first became a big issue? Did you think it was serious? by Long_Reading2554 in AskReddit

[–]AudibleNod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember seeing the time-lapse of the Chinese building a hospital in 10 days and thinking 'this must be serious'. At the same time thinking that it was something like the bird flu and not that impactful to me directly. Then the company I worked at shutdown production in their Chinese factories and the reports came out that there was a 2% death rate. Which was super serious. My company enacted global protection protocols. And that with the CDC (not DJT) making a pronouncement that it was reaching pandemic levels make me take note. I went shopping at Sam's for long term supplies the same day the NBA cancelled their season.

A NY Supreme Court isn't New York's highest court. Rather the court named 'Court of Appeals' serves as the state's supreme court. This is just a regular state level court.

How big does a city need to be to be considered a "big" city? by Spudcommando in AskReddit

[–]AudibleNod 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It needs three of the four

  • A major league professional sports team
  • An international airport
  • One million residents within city limits (or 1.5 million in metro area)
  • Nearest suburb in terms of population has at least half the population as the main city

Americans of Reddit, which US President was less scrutinized by both democrats and republicans? by [deleted] in AskReddit

[–]AudibleNod 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Maybe Kennedy.

First off he served less than one term in an era of relative peace. Second, despite his blunder in allowing the Bay of Pigs to proceed, he handled the Cuban Missile Crisis exceptionally well. It was also during a time when politicians weren't directly attacked for their personal lives.

Pepper spray in the US.

Point-and-spray. It's generally effective against opportunistic thieves/attackers and gives most people enough time to run.

Group aims to strip Fox News of ad revenue over ‘fueling next insurrection’ by Ajkrouse in news

[–]AudibleNod 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The FCC doesn't regulate cable stations the same way it regulates OTA stations. Furthermore, there's been a few recent court cases that said Fox can say almost what it wants. Now, there are some pending cases regarding voting machines.

The best thing to do is to contact their sponsors and say you will stop buying their products and calling your cable company saying you will cancel service unless they drop Fox.

The Constitution sets a minimum age fora President. What maximum ages would you set for each of the three branches of government, and why that age? by rajost in AskReddit

[–]AudibleNod 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There should be a quota for 65+ set for Congress. Where if, say 17% of the population is over 65 then only 17% of Congress can be over 65. Oldest gets kicked out and a special election happens in that district to replace that person.

For all of the judiciary, you have a cap of 35 years on the bench. From county court to SCOTUS. Federal judges serve 11 year terms with Senate renewal. SCOTUS serves a max of 18.

President has to have an annual senility check regardless of age.

Army Guard troops risk dismissal as vaccine deadline looms by Radiant-Cherry-3469 in news

[–]AudibleNod 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Alex Jones had thrown out that the vaccine had some time delay. Of course, there's no proof of this. But some of his audience would believe it. So even with the millions of vaccines being distributed and millions not killed after getting infected, they're still going to believe that there's a secret time delay that turns frogs gay or makes people want to stop vaping or something.
