I think part of the law should function to create social limits, what is and is not acceptable behavior.
Which is what led to Jim Crow Laws, Prohibition, Blue Laws, just to mention a few of the things from our own past let alone foreign travesties like the Nuremberg laws.  The creation of social limits is not something that should be a goal of the law, tho it sometimes is a side effect.

Anti-discrimination laws led to the Nuremberg laws.  No...  That didn't happen.

Listen, everyone's freedom is to an extent reciprocal.  As a member of the public, you depend on being treated with a basic measure of human dignity, IE like a member of the general public.  You take that for granted, but it's very important.

You just can't put someone being black or gay on a par with someone hating blacks or gays and wanting to discriminate against them.  Nobody moved to America from Discrimination-vania.  It's amazing that you can't see the irony.  "I want to have the freedom to impose my hatred on other people!  Not fair!"

And now we enter the world of last minute retirements; there are always a few of these (largely because they entail - for various practical reasons - a suspension of the usual candidate selection methods). It seems that the first is Geoffrey Robinson (Labour, Coventry North West) who has been an MP since a by-election in 1976.

Or is it? It is now being suggested that maybe he isn't going to retire.

With a gun to my head, Carson because at least his work in medicine is respectable.

My parents despicably adorned me with nonsense "dress clothes" and toted me along for some disgusting Christian rituals sometime in March/April 1988 at the age of ~7 months.   My poor, brainwashed mind did not grow out of this until I was about 10 and refused to do anything on "Easter Sunday" but play video games in my basement (which is all ANY kid should be doing on Sunday morning) like the freedom fighter I am.  


Eat some lamb.

Vermin Supreme says everyone gets a free pony if he's elected so he's got my vote.

Not really sure. She probably would be a better candidate. Benghazi, email, Libya, resigning, and everything else has really pushed her back.

I don't know.

Being Secretary of State made her an important Obama ally, so Democrats who preferred Obama in '08 are willing to support her now. It was also a position that gave her foreign policy credibility (She's in the room with the cabinet watching footage of Seal Team Six in Pakistan) and kept her out of contentious national debates.

It's difficult to imagine her being better positioned to win the nomination. She'd likely be strong (due to lack of obvious competition and the milestone she'd represent), but not as strong.

On the other hand, she wouldn't have the email scandal, the level of scrutiny over influence-peddling with the Clinton foundation or Benghazi (which isn't as significant) as Senator. She'd have remained a prominent congressional ally of the President, and wouldn't be as rusty in dealings with the press.
She can't bring up being SOS
