  1. I never thought this would happen, but I agree with Brick. Just because the Obama Administration determined capturing al-Awlaki “infeasible” doesn’t negate his right to due process as an American citizen. This looks especially bad since the U.S. has suspected terrorists, who aren’t U.S. Citizens, in GITMO since 2001 we’re currently trying to give due process to. A U.S. Citizen doesn’t lose their Constitutional rights just because they’re hard to capture and bring to trial. “It is during our most challenging and uncertain moments that our Nation’s commitment to due process is most severely tested; and it is in those times that we must preserve our commitment at home to the principles for which we fight abroad.” - Justice O’Connor
  2. So, I guess stay in Iraq forever to prevent ISIS or whomever from taking over?
  3. Rule of thumb, when you start a sentence with "rule of thumb," that's usually an opinion that no one really asked for to begin with. So, they're still people opining what they believe, albeit one that will shape legal precedence. Copy, an opinion. You find it interesting that a lawyer would represent someone and/or an organization where they wouldn't personally agree with the legal strategy?
  4. Yeah, that's sorta how interpreting the law works. If you're wondering, an "opinion" is what the SCOTUS and every other court in the U.S. issues too. And I know for a fact you didn't read the article because the law professor doing the analysis agreed with you. The Trump Administration has let it be known that they interpreted the AMUF more broadly than previous administrations.

  6. Isn't there a C-17 unit as well?
  7. Very interesting analysis on the topic. https://ir.lawnet.fordham.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=5571&context=flr
  8. Politics is so explosive right now because both sides would rather yell into their respective echo chambers with their tribalism and throw insults to the opposing side. This is fueled by the media craving of ratings spinning a story to conform to their narrative.
  9. Can't respond with a debate, so you'll use memes. How very Gen-Z of you.
  10. And what does that have to do with the price of eggs in China? Your knack for strawmans, whataboutisms, and turning any topic into a something about the Clinton's is astounding.
  11. One drunk driver is a problem. But if you say there's a drunk driving problem, but the data doesn't support your claim, you either look like a liar, stupid, or both.
  12. People look like dorks wearing full-sized wings with mini medals in mess dress.
  13. Fundamentally, no, there isn't a difference since the voter isn't physically in a voting booth to vote. Oregon has been using mail-in voting since 1998 and in 2000 was the first state to have 100% mail-in voting for the presidential election. A GOP think tank, the Heritage Foundation data showed as of 2020, Oregon has cast 15,476,519 votes since 2000. During that time 14 fraudulent votes were attempted by mail. Voter fraud could also be considered a convicted felon trying to vote. This is another unsubstantiated claim by Trump trying to rile up his base about a "rampant problem" that doesn't exist. I voted this year in Washington via mail, just like last year. Had no issues. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/fixgov/2020/06/02/low-rates-of-fraud-in-vote-by-mail-states-show-the-benefits-outweigh-the-risks/
  14. When I was at Altus some people commuted from Lawton and even OKC. One guy commuted from Atlanta to Robins daily due to having family in the area and not wanting to live in the shit hole known as Warner Robins/Macon.
