    I find it interesting that a lot of people, especially in the EU, seem to forget/ignore just how gigantic the USA actually is. For me a one hour drive is a long drive because that means I'm either halfway across the country, or I've driven into Germany.

    I've got a friend who lives northeast of Houston and was telling me on a call this past September that it took almost a 6 hour drive to reach Oklahoma

    5) While I haven't seen detailed breakdowns of the voting demographics, it would appear that the electorate is becoming more polarized along rural/urban lines and race and gender.  Certainly the election rhetoric was some of the most highly charged that I have seen in my lifetime.

    I don't have a site, but I have seen it posted on Twitter

    It was basically White Men vs Everyone Else

  3. The wiggle room in the amendment is whether or not illegal immigrants fall under the full jurisdiction of US law, but nominally later SCOTUS rulings on the 14th and some statutory laws by Congress would mean Trump's EO would be blocked and nullified


    But I have seen a theory that this is bait for a challenge against it so SCOTUS can make an explicit ruling on how the 14th applies to illegal immigrants and their anchor babies

    WoT premiums in 3...2...

    This one reminds me of some FB game trying to ripoff WoT(Think it was called "Ground War: Tanks" or something) where it had a "VK 45.02 H" that was basically this

    And since this is an "effort" thread, might as well gloat a little...

    Completed the award just before September ended

  5. Someone claiming to be Christine Ford's ex submitted a letter to Senator Grassley stating he observed his (then) girlfriend assisting another woman prepare for her FBI job interview by training her on polygraph tests back in the 90s. This would be in violation of her testimony given before the Senate Judiciary Committee where she specifically said she "Never" gave any such instructions or tips to anyone and thus potential grounds for perjury if this newcomer is speaking legitimately.

  6. Since I had to dig it up for another conversation, here's a WaPo article to throw in the face of anyone who insinuates the Maryland police are in a position to do much of anything on any of the Kavanaugh allegations


    And even if an accuser went to the local department, the statute of limitations for pursuing the crimes as described in Thursday’s dramatic Senate Judiciary Committee hearing appears to have long since passed.

    The most serious crime that authorities could pursue, given the sworn testimony provided by Ford, would be attempted rape. But that was considered a misdemeanor crime in Maryland in 1982, which would be the relevant legal application. As a misdemeanor, it carried a one-year statute of limitations, meaning charges would have had to have been filed within a year after an incident, according to John McCarthy, Montgomery County’s longtime chief prosecutor; Lisae C. Jordan, the executive director and counsel for the Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault; and other longtime Maryland attorneys interviewed in recent days.
    The Maryland legislature changed the law in 1996, making attempted rape a felony and removing the statute of limitations, according to McCarthy and Jordan.

    “But we’d have to apply the law as it existed at the time of the allegations,” McCarthy said.

    Other possible charges, such as second-degree assault, remain misdemeanor offenses in Maryland, subject to a one-year statute of limitations, McCarthy said.
