re: My how things change in a week - N.O. via West-Cal
"There are arguments to be made in terms of which is the more successful, but only time will tell." A fair assessment. What he does very little of, though, is actually promote his agenda. He has certainly moved on it, but historically, you would see a president doing more to garner support for hi...

re: Washington Supreme Court unanimously rules against florist in gay wedding case - N.O. via West-Cal
"Going to demand my local falafel place cook my bacon as I type this" I have mixed feelings on this issue because I value religious freedom, but you actually made an argument for the other side if your analogy is tightened. The gays didn't ask the falafel place to serve them bacon, they asked to ...

re: My how things change in a week - N.O. via West-Cal
I know the Trump presser was catnip to his base, but a question for Trumpistas: do you think he accomplishes more by going off on the media or would he achieve more by essentially ignoring the media, denying allegations of wrongdoing, and focusing on his policy agenda? You can tell by the way I a...

re: U.S. appeals court upholds suspension of Trump travel ban - N.O. via West-Cal
"Not suprised they are legislating from the bench instead of ruling according to the law which is clear the POTUS has the right to suspend travel..." The 9th didn't legislate from the bench here, but they also didn't prevent the lower court from doing so....

re: U.S. appeals court upholds suspension of Trump travel ban - N.O. via West-Cal
I just skimmed it and it looks like the Court largely punted on the big separation of powers and religious discrimination issues and said that the Feds couldn't show irreparable harm to get the emergency stay of the order. In other words, a reasonable but technical decision. Nothing has really been ...

re: A conservative answer to climate change - N.O. via West-Cal
i read this piece and while appealing in some respects, it's also fanciful. Entrenched regulatory interests could never bring themselves to loosen their grip, such that you would end up with a carbon tax AND the regulations the authors seek to avoid. ...

re: Bernie Sanders coming to March in Mississippi for starting a Union at Nissan - N.O. via West-Cal
The Sierra Club has lost it way and its mind. They are engaging in what I can only describe as general social justice activism untethered to the environment. I suspect it will be the downfall of their organization....

re: TRUMP is fricking up. - N.O. via West-Cal
This was always the downside of the Trump presidency. He doesn't have the temperament associated with most great American political leaders. Extremely thin-skinned, shoots from the lip. All of this was well known. But he isn't Hillary, which is "yuge," he's delivered "bigly" on Gorsuch, and Keystone...

re: ESPN ranks Top 15 QBs of all time...No Brees lol - N.O. via West-Cal
I agree with you, though I also have a sense being on more successful teams as a general matter. It's not just the one ring for Drew, it's also the fact that we haven't even been to the playoffs that often - a crime that isn't his fault, but when you're ID'ing the best 15 ever, you're going to have ...

re: ESPN ranks Top 15 QBs of all time...No Brees lol - N.O. via West-Cal
I would like to see Brees on the list but I can't say definitively who on that list doesn't belong. ETA: Another problem for Drew is that he is, by most accounts, behind four QBs in his own era: Brady, Manning, Favre, and Rodgers. You would have to be seriously biased in favor of the current er...

re: I no longer question Ben Simmons' greatness.. - N.O. via West-Cal
" used to criticize his apathy at times but the dude had to be a miracle worker to get that team to 19 wins." I agree that Simmons is extremely talented and that he showed signs of apathy while at issue. But the rest of your statement isn't true. The team had Simmons (#1 pick), Quarterman (made N...

re: Do you believe White Jealousy is part of the Immigrant Ban - N.O. via West-Cal
An interesting idea, but I doubt jealousy has too much to do with it, and here is why: 1. The current "ban" doesn't cover those countries from which many of the most successful immigrants come. Sure, Iran has some highly educated folks doing very well, but most of these countries are not producin...
