re: TRUMP has a point. Why aren't states turning over information to the Voter Fraud Panel? - Thorny
[quote]25 states are refusing to do so because the data they are asking for exceeds what is necessary to perform the investigation.[/quote] In California, almost all of the information requested can be legally sold by the local county registrar to candidates and other researchers.

re: We are due for a good balk - Thorny
I thought one of those "fake to third, throw to first" deals Thompson tried yesterday should have been called a balk. He stepped pretty far forward and should have been considered a move to the plate. But, what do I know. ...

re: California Attorney General Bans State Travel to 4 More States over LGBT Laws - Thorny
[quote]As dumb as this is, it's their prerogative. I just wish they would go ahead and secede and live their lives on their own.[/quote] I actually think making a broad policy like this violates the Constitutional Interstate Commerce Clause: "Congress shall have power to . . .

re: The bogus defense of Julius Caesar as Donald Trump. - Thorny
Shakespeare intentionally left it to the determination of the audience whether they should sympathize with Brutus or not. By casting Caesar as Trump, they take that ambiguity away from the audience. The audience goes into the play with an assumption of the merit of Caesar (either positive or negativ...

re: Am I the only conservative who doesn't mind that Confederate statues are being removed? - Thorny
A city should have the right to decide that it no longer honors the things it did in the past. Doing so does not erase history. At least, not in the same way as the Taliban blowing up the Bamiyan Buddas or the destruction of other antiquities by ISIS. That said, I think each statue is different:...

re: Tool Box and Bed Cover? - Thorny
I have a BAK RollX, which I like, but I have the box sitting on the floor of the bed. I didn't like losing so much of the bed space by having the box a foot back from the front of the bed. If I were to do it again, I would probably go with [link=(https://www.foldacover.com/)]Fold-a-Cover[/link]...
