He argued that the president shouldn't have to deal with criminal investigations, but instead deal with impeachment, as criminal investigates would not benefit the general public

If the President is subject to garden-variety civil suits (like Clinton v Jones), why would the President be immune from criminal liability?

Not saying you're wrong or right by asking the question. Just wondering what the argument is.

When we met with Teal at her “spiritual startup” and retreat center in Costa Rica, she went into a lot of detail about how she targets people in crisis online. She uses really SEO-friendly titles on her YouTube self-help videos and she also covers a range of commonly searched-for topics, things like cryptocurrency and relationship advice, in addition to her more spiritually focused content. She also posts life updates and memes constantly on social media so her followers can feel like they have a constant window into her life.

We think that Teal’s massive popularity speaks to a few things. The way she targets people is important, but she’s also speaking very bluntly about topics that many public figures shy away from. Things like struggles with suicidal thoughts and mental health. Teal fills a sort of void online with her unique way of talking about these issues. And part of what we were interested in is whether the ways she speaks on suicide and mental health are damaging or dangerous.

cryptocurrency and relationship advice

So her target demographic are users of /r/wallstreetbets. :P

That's always been the case. The court basically never upholds something on strict scrutiny, it finds a way to make the standard become rational basis, despite an appearance otherwise.

Some cases are really transparent about this. IIRC the "material suppport" case basically says that the government had a rational basis for concluding that its own regulations were not viewpoint-based. And Gonzales v. Carhart says Congress had a rational basis for concluding that it wasn't unduly burdening abortion rights because partial-birth abortions are, in Congress's merely rational view, never medically necessary.

Issues of national origin/religion used to get strict scrutiny.

I don't think it works that way with immigration, given that the entire basis of immigration law is "discrimination" based on national origin.

The majority opinion effectively says if there are pretextual concerns for national security the statements of the president (e.g. "muslim ban") can be ignored if they're not present in the proclamation itself.

Probably not. Bar exams vary state by state. Some are more inclined to rote memorization than others. Sometimes BarBri, Kaplan, or whatever suck or don't match your learning style. Do whatever works. If memorization is your key to winning out then do that.

California for a long time (maybe still?) was a rote memorization exam. Regurgitate a bunch of rule statements and a bunch of: "Because of this [fact], then this [consequence]." "But if other [fact] then this [other consequence]." And "Given [strongest fact or facts], thus [conclusion]." The biggest impediment was typing fast enough.

The MBE is just doing tons of problems and then looking at areas where you suck and practicing those.

Legitimate effort to cut out a good through ball that would probably have resulted in a goal.

Yeah, that's just regrettable and a bad position to be in on the field. It's up there with fouling someone in the box to avoid a 100% goal in favor of rolling the dice with a PK. It's obviously terrible to murder someone over an error in a soccer match but it's not like the guy took a bunch of money to shoot an own goal or something insane. He's obviously full of regret.

The vast majority of these crazy 2 month transformations are not natty, and nobody talks about the PEDs. The average person is SOOOOO uneducated about them too, its ridiculous. Its really shitty for the average person once they get their bubble shattered and they start thinking that it takes massive doses of Tren to look like Zac Efron, which is absurd and total bullshit- the average dude could do that natty in just a couple years if they tried. He just did it quicker with some chemical assistance cause fuck for millions of bucks why wouldnt you? Theyre not even that bad for you if you have celeb level care

They quit lifting or never even try cause they think it's pointless without tons of gear which enrages me. It just takes longer if you're being realistic and not trying to look like The Rock as a natty. It doesnt take 2 hours every day in the gym either, fuck I wish hollywood and the fitness industry were more open cause theres 15 year olds pinnin tren and firin blanks like morons, and theres people in horrible shape literally killing themselves going "oh theres no point ill never get fit without STEROIDS!".

All of that could be fixed if we got over this drug war and steroid taboo bullshit

Most people look fantastic with 30min to an hour a day of exercise and a reasonable diet.

I hate this attitude so much. It's up there with "I'll never be Bill Gates so I may as well be a homeless crack fiend."

I honestly don't care about these things. If anything, they alleviate traffic and fighting for parking in North Park.

this took a hilarious amount of dedication.

maddeningly, the initiative doesn't even specify how water transfers are handled. and it's not just the state water project --- "California" would no longer be in the Colorado River Basin, so wouldn't be entitled to participation in the Colorado River compact, but LA gets a lot of its water from there.

The initiative is SILENT on the subject of how to handle that.

I honestly don't think the billionaire creator of this bad idea gives a damn about how people live in the state or the basics of what it takes to run a state.

He just wants to gerrymander it to create two red states out of southern and northern California.

Republicans election strategy, if you can't win the game fix it

see more

This is also one of the dumbest ideas I've seen in my life.

  • It would fragment the state water system and the UC and Cal State systems.

  • It's extremely expensive.

  • It's transparently trying to build two new GOP states through gerrymandering "North California" and "South California." For fuck's sake, "South California" gets all the way up to Fresno and the whole eastern half of the state.

  • The lines make no sense whatsoever.

20mph on a sidewalk is kind of nuts. That's enough to really fuck someone up.

Stop signs should be a yield for bikes/scooters anyway. I don't really care if someone runs one if there's no cars and clear visibility.

Holy shit, how deep does this case go?

He doesn't have to use all of them and probably will not. There's not much to infer from how many subpoenas get requested. The witness list itself you can draw more out of though.

there needs to be a shooting area that's also gyro stabilized.

Why would someone need to re-register if they haven't voted? You state that as if it is some universal truth when it is your opinion. This law purges people from voting rolls if they haven't voted and haven't responded to a letter, there is no requirement that the person have moved or there be any affirmative evidence that the person has moved.

Most people won't respond to snail mail to keep their right to vote.
