    Occupying isn't on the same level has rape, murder, robbery, etc.

    I believe in most states a misdemeanor can be up to a full year in jail.

    Perhaps he overreacted. I can't say with certainty right now. I'm sure he knew what the ramifications would be when he penned the bill.

    Just reinstate corporal punishment. A few days in stocks in the courthouse square would be a deterrent, especially when your buddies are trying to burn the place down.

    Looks like republicans found a new method to try and suppress the votes.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Should have let the south secede. This is embarrassing for America.

    I don't know, a lot of rednecks are getting pretty worked up over face masks. The law may have unintended consequences.

    No no no, if it prohibits them from breathing free from the tyranny of a face mask it becomes a deep state issue - which we all know is because of that devil Clinton or Obama.

    I suspect that if this law were allowed to take effect, they'd find ways to define protests in such a way that it only affected non-white people. I'm sure law enforcement would have wide latitude to make judgement calls on arrests.

    Nah, you've checked in plenty...and much appreciated. Cup? Nah, he's a different breed of seething Trump/Republican hatership. I just dangle stuff for the fun of it. Only after he's sought me out and trotted out his vitriol, though. I don't follow any of his other posts by any stretch.

    You and Cup would make a great Odd Couple remake.

    Yes but I'll admit it, unlike you.
