How about changing the inheritance tax structure, to encourage extremely wealthy people make their assets work for a slightky broader segment of society, than just their over entitled spoilt brats? FFS, it isnt rocket science. But it does require a separation of those with the wealth from those making the rules. Ban lobbyists? It requires the 21st century equivalent of separating church and state, from back in the day when the church held extremely disproportionate weakth and political influence.

    This is the man choosing judges:

    Think about this for a sec. Did he believe he wouldn't get called on his lie? Is it that he doesn't care? Is it a 6 YO idea thinking he can get away with it?

    He's got the nuclear switch too...

    Nice little follow up here, detailing Gorsuch's relationship with the Federalist Society and their shared interest in "originalism."

    "Still not tired" reminds me so of a Sandra Boynton book we used to read the kids at bedtime.

    The is an argument to be made when one has slurred speech that a rest is indicated.

    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.
