    I be sorry for putting a science question to a bunch of thumpers. I am also sorry for signing up for this site thinking Democrats would be more science minded than Republicans. But it seems that just ain't the case.

    Roberts has argued that if the law doesn't apply to the north then it shouldn't be applied to the south. A great highscholl argument. A stately jurist would say it was needed everywhere for the fore seeable future. He also brought up states rights. If the court gets this wrong the Justice department is going to be very busy.

    I think the problem is due to marketing. A thirty year old Jewish man would have been married if he was close to normal. But for marketing reasons(purity) that had to be scrubbed.

    They are stating the rule is too much trouble when one wants to change voting rules. They need to answer why they keep changing the voting rules. If they answer that then the law will be kept in place.

    Icebergs ain't the issue. Still waiting for one of these over size, poorly ran, cruise ships to take a hit from a rogue wave.

    jamesn Wrote: Mcclellan is right there is enough stockpiled ammo to last for decades, and banning it will just drive the price up, not to mention that it would be smuggled into the country if the price increased enough to make it profitable and it definitely would. I guess we could seal our borders against smuggling ammunition, but it would be about as effective as the seal of our borders against smuggling drugs. And we all know how well THAT works.

    People have been stockpiling ammo for decades and since President Obama's election it has only increased, his reelection and the recent gun ban talk has made it even worse.

    The legislation will not pass and even if it did it would not be effective.
    And boy oh boy has fire fighting become interesting. We recently had a house go up and when the guys approached the stored ammo started going off and the result was a controlled burn(from a safe distance).

    Nipper is fundamentalist christian. Proof is that the poster said schoolteach a type of religion, secular humanism. Secular Humanism is the rallying call of the true Christians(Fundies to you and me). I suggest that we not reply in any way to any of the trolls. Maybe they will just wander back the their bridge if nobody notices them. And why not? In real life we shun the simpleminded fools.
