  1. Mariota learning the new offense is reason for some concern. And Watson was gangbusters before he got hurt. That seems like a fair ranking.

    Is this really true - I really Don't Care

    Just imagine the right wing outrage that would ensue if Michelle Obama had worn that jacket...

    Supreme Court rules states can tax internet sales

    Well sales from Amazon directly mostly won’t. But there are sellers who sell through Amazon and ship directly that will be affected because they don’t charge sales tax.

    Supreme Court rules states can tax internet sales

    Strange as it sounds, Amazon is probably the big winner of this case. They already collect sales tax in 45 states and their systems are set up for sales tax collection already. It’s the smaller internet retailers or big ones who don’t already collect sales taxes that will be the big losers. If they had any advantage over Amazon it was their lack of sales tax collection.

    Fact or Fiction?

    I’d personally prefer voters have the opportunity to keep good representatives in DC and replace the bad ones. Obviously it doesn’t always work the way the system was intended, but term limits have downsides.

    I tend to think it actually is good news and long overdue. There’s no reason why internet retailers should have a tax advantage over brick and mortar retailers.
  7. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/supreme-court-rules-states-can-require-online-retailers-collect-sales-n873416 Online shopping will soon become more expensive, after the U.S. Supreme court ruled Thursday that states can require Internet retailers to collect sales taxes. The 5-4 decision broke with 50 years' worth of legal rulings that barred the states from imposing sales taxes on most of the purchases their residents make from out-of-state retailers. The decision was a victory for South Dakota, which asked the court to uphold its recently passed law imposing an Internet sales tax. "Our state is losing millions for education, healthcare, and infrastructure, and our citizens are harmed by an uneven playing field," said Marty Jackley, South Dakota's attorney general.
  8. In this case, the evangelical base is way less supportive of Trump, so it isn’t all about religion. They are actually fracturing here. It’s his white supremicist base that that is the most devoted and supportive of this issue. Most of them are Christian, of course, but it isn’t about religion specifically.
  9. Weaponizing religion is nothing new. Including for Christians. And the most devout religious people are the easiest to weaponize.
  10. It’s not as if being Christian makes you a good person. Slave owners were overwhelmingly Christian. Most criminals in America are Christian. The original Nazis were Christian. It’s just a religion. It doesn’t denote being a good person.

    How many of you used this term? Then I guess you're racist....

    I don’t think Fox is coordinating with other sites directly, but certainly the GOP is using Fox, Breitbart, InfoWars, and all the other right wing sources as part of their propaganda machine.

    add mike leach to the list of crazies

    They certainly seemed to be working together on their effort to attack Hillary. Even if it was just them both working together to attack the same enemy it would still be open to collusion. I mean, how many secret meetings did members and associates of the Trump campaign have with Russia? It was unprecedented.
