So, Trump is a dupe for taking Wuhan Virus seriously?

I can't agree, and Trump is right to take the steps he is taking. Its both more contagious and more deadly than any previous flu from the past. It doesn't have to be much more contagious or deadly to overwhelm.

Are we overreacting? Maybe, but that's ok.

I don’t know what you’re LOLing about.

They aren’t looking for people who already have it. They are looking for people who don’t have it but are willing to be infected voluntarily to test the virus.

The worse the virus is, the harder it’s going to be to find people to be infected by it voluntarily.

The chutzpah of left wing types calling conservatives racists.

If you are black and don’t toe the line, you’re subject to the possible insults based on your race.

Not for me. If Bernie is the nominee he has a chance to win, however slim. I can't think of a worse disaster.

Also, a lot of Democrats thought they would pull this clever trick on Republicans in 2016. They voted for gleefully Trump who couldn't POSSIBLY win.

I don’t know if it is or should be against the rules, but unless there is some new clear evidence, it’s a waste of time and a distraction from re-election.

So you want the government to run health care? You may need a course in remedial conservatism.

Well, I assume you aren't offering to pay them out of your own pocket, so that's one reason you might not be getting any traction. Lawyers like cases where they either get paid directly by the client, or they can see a larger payout sometime int the future. Class action cases are very high difficulty, drag on for years and they are very very high risk for the attorneys. Not many attorneys are going to take the kind of risk you would have to take to pursue the theories you put forward for purely economic reasons.

You have some very novel legal theories, you would have to break new legal ground to come up with a viable way for the complaint to survive a motion to dismiss.

I totally agree that there is a conflict between what the cia and nsa do and the fourth amendment, but I don't think you've developed it into something a lawyer could draft into a cognizable cause of action in a complaint.

I don't get your 5th amendment argument at all.

I don't think the system is rigged so much as your case may not be economically viable.

That's a lot to digest....But I don't know that its related to censorship of conservatives. Seems like anyone using social media, conservative or not, could make the same complaints, couldn't they?

Speaking as an occasional class action attorney myself, the only viable theory I've heard for holding social media companies liable for discrimination against conservatives would be antitrust.

What are your 4th and 5th amendment theories?

Horrifying that instead of outright banning they attempt a hostile takeover.

Can the sub be put out of it’s misery or can reddit make it into their own anti Trump playground?

I agree with you, but then I also don't agree. The problem is the requirement that you appear in court repeatedly to swear you are poor. Its a trap for the unwary, and its using state coercion and harassment to help creditors collect from debtors.

2005? even if it happened less than 15 years ago, famous people get more coverage for their death. More people are interested. You might not like it, but you are probably more interested in hearing about a famous person's death too. So quit complaining.

In and of itself, its fine. But the term is often used in conjunction with bizarre conspiracy theories about how "the Jews", or a few Jewish families, control everything.

The Senate can adopt whatever rules it chooses. It can and should adopt the FRE.
