re: Mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale airport. Update: Shooter ID'd - N.O. via West-Cal
For what it's worth, it looks like you can travel with ammunition in a "separate, locked bag." At a glance, airlines' rules may vary but this appears to be common for travel within the US....

re: Don lemon on the Chicago kidnapping. Complete idiot - N.O. via West-Cal
"It only appears to make sense with crimes like graffiti or vandalism where the effect on the victim isn't just economic" Even with such crimes, you don't really need the hate crime element. The intent element can me more generalized, such as "with intent to threaten or intimidate." Of course, th...

re: Why does the GOP have to have a replacement for the ACA? - N.O. via West-Cal
"There is some merit to your point, but let's not go overboard and say that keeping AHA is less destructive than scrapping in one hour from now." I am not saying that and suggest that you're presenting a false choice. What I favor is the GOP presenting a repeal-and-replace plan for passage and pu...

re: Why does the GOP have to have a replacement for the ACA? - N.O. via West-Cal
They don't need a replacement for reasons of logic or to appease Democrats. They need a replacement for reasons both practical and political. You don't want to put the health care industry in a state of flux or leave employers wondering what to do, and you do not want to serve up a gift to the Democ...

re: Don lemon on the Chicago kidnapping. Complete idiot - N.O. via West-Cal
I have always been against the entire concept of a hate crime because of the absurd rabbit holes it leads us down. We end up fighting about whether something is a hate crime, when it's unnecessary and when all right-thinking individuals agree that a crime has been committed. Particularly nasty motiv...

re: Is Trump Going to Enforce Federal Pot Laws? - N.O. via West-Cal
" think he should make moves towards support of legalizing it on a federal level, so the GOP-led Congress can move forward accordingly." He could just decriminalize it while continuing to enforce laws regarding importation. He has a strong protectionist streak, anyway, so why not aid the American...

re: Nice editorial pointing out silliness of protectionism - N.O. via West-Cal
" Don't fall for this 1953 crap. Will is trying to set the narrative of 1953, so he can later call Trump a racist." Good grief. No, he's really not. Will is not a fan of Trump or of many of his policies, but he has ALWAYS been a free trader who is keen to point out (usually correctly, in my opin...

re: Unbanned - BigScrub here to eat BigCrow - N.O. via West-Cal
I disagree on the importance of wealth inequality, which could be the subject of a fine discussion, but I think you're dead on about the instability of the coalition Trump pieced together. It will be incredibly interesting to see how it holds. The GOP Congress, particularly the House, is the only in...
