  1. Regardless of whether or not that is true, and it is not, it is current law. We should follow the law. There is a mechanism for changing it. Any changes should go through the amendment process, regardless of the difficulty.
  2. Yep. Not a single person disputes that. Florida can choose to contract with any food company they choose. What is the problem?
  3. Ben&Jerry’s speech. How, specifically, has their speech been censored? Not purchasing their product censors nothing. Florida can buy ice cream from whatever source they choose.
  4. I could not disagree more. I believe in rule of law as opposed to rule of men. Times change, human nature does not. This, yet again, exposes the fundamental difference in our worldviews. Since you apparently concede that the federal government giving student loans is unconstitutional, a mechanism exists for amending the constitution. Why not use current law as opposed to the subjectivity of men? We can, and have become the most technically advanced nation to ever exist in spite of the federal government.
  5. No, to America and it's allies. What speech is being censored? Is the state of Florida required to purchase a certain brand of anything?
  6. I would like college to be more "affordable" (read: less expensive) as well. Thing is, those easy, low interest federal loans are the MAIN DRIVER of the ever-increasing cost of college. Federal government has no business getting into the school loan business. Constitutionally at least.
  7. Yep. B-D-S. It is going to be coming more and more from us patriotic Americans applied to many entities. We need to use the tactics the leftists are using to defeat them.
  8. What if they were all dropped off in Maine? The border should be closed during a pandemic. Shocked that this would not be the default position.
  9. The vast majority of people at the southern border DO NOT meet the definition of "asylum" seekers. Inform yourself... https://www.americanimmigrationcouncil.org/research/asylum-united-states " What Is Asylum? Asylum is a protection granted to foreign nationals already in the United States or arriving at the border who meet the international law definition of a “refugee.” The United Nations 1951 Convention and 1967 Protocol define a refugee as a person who is unable or unwilling to return to his or her home country, and cannot obtain protection in that country, due to past persecution or a well-founded fear of being persecuted in the future “on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.” Congress incorporated this definition into U.S. immigration law in the Refugee Act of 1980. As a signatory to the 1967 Protocol, and through U.S. immigration law, the United States has legal obligations to provide protection to those who qualify as refugees. The Refugee Act established two paths to obtain refugee status—either from abroad as a resettled refugee or in the United States as an asylum seeker." "Asylum seekers who arrive at a U.S. port of entry or enter the United States without inspection generally must apply through the defensive asylum process. Both application processes require the asylum seeker to be physically present in the United States."
  10. blo·vi·ate /ˈblōvēˌāt/ Learn to pronounce verb INFORMAL•US gerund or present participle: bloviating talk at length, especially in an inflated or empty way. Hence the "windy" part.
  11. I have actually looked this up in the past and there are a few different stories as to how that came to be. One story was something about politicians bloviating a great deal back in the day. Still appropo today I suppose.
