    I think there are a lot of issues at play, but why not throw a size into it? It is a tiny strip of land. Awarding statehood based on having a concentration of population will undermine a lot of the...

    I think the word "sex" had a very clear definition at the time that is not the one being applied. Legislation often contains definitions of relevant terms, and I don't believe Title 9 has that for...

    My assumption is the market won't be too rational until Q3 earnings. Then things will get bloody again and we'll see what things really look like.

    Puerto Rico has on multiple occasions voted-down opportunities to pursue (no guarantees) statehood. The consequences of consistently voting against statehood efforts have yielded economic destruction...

    Eh, it's a big leap they made to redefine the definition of "sex". We all know legislators didn't have transexuals and genderqueer people in mind when the legislation was made. Changing the damn...

    I've been threatened with arrest for jaywalking, and my SO has a ticket for it. Both times were in empty, rural areas late at night. It's like the thing police pull out for fun.

    The only thing that surprises me more than the UK not being more forceful in its response to China's treaty violation is the fact that offering to give residency to X million Hong Kongers (which I...
