re: SCOTUS rejects gun rights appeal - M. A. Ryland
[quote]It's weird that all of these "constitutionalists" on the poliboard ignore that the Constitution was created to limit the federal government and not the states.

[quote]Keyless entry on vehicles[/quote] Most people don't appreciate the most stupendously wonderful thing about locking/unlocking your car with a key-fob... It means never ever locking yourself out of the car. when you lock the car, by definition the keys are in your hand. used to be, pe...

re: Trump isn't even talking about the Paris Accord - M. A. Ryland

re: Breaking: Trump pulling out of Paris - M. A. Ryland
No no no. He shouldn't withdraw from the Paris treaty. He should submit the treaty to the Senate for ratification (Obama never bothered with that little step). Trump should inform the world that he is willing to sign the Paris treaty if the senate ratifies it. That would accomplish the same end ...

re: Rick Perry wants to tweak, not withdraw from, the paris agreement - M. A. Ryland

With a law like this the police could simply arrest and charg...
