The entire decided by states thing has been a staple since the founding of the government and the debates between the Federalists and Jefferson and the Democratic Republicans.

It's also been on the losing side of every Civil Rights issue since slavery.
Not to mention that it was the issue at the heart of the Civil War - states insisting they have the right to have legal human slavery, because the federal government didn't have authority to tell them no.

It's pretty much a buffet for the Republicans at this point.
This is surreal.

DeVosís brother is Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater, one of the most profitable private security firms during the Iraq War. Blackwater came under intense scrutiny after the companyís guards shot and killed 17 Iraqi civilians in Baghdad in 2007; four guards were convicted on charges related to the massacre. Prince has since left the company, which is now called Academi.

The whole point is that it's a shitty hail Mary fallback position when rulings don't go their way. A lot of same sex opponents are also marijuana legalization opponents, and they point to federal rulings on whether states should be able to legalize it.

Yeah, I don't know what you're specifically talking about. I click on TMZ threads out of habit. Sometimes people are just wrong.

You know, I woke up this morning and had some fresh coffee brewing while I scrambled some eggs and popped in some toast. The combined aroma was wonderful and it really cleared my head.

So I thought clearly about the future of America. And then it came to me. We need as many billionaires as possible to run the government within the best interests of our fellow common man.

this is the sort of race-issue shit im concerned about. i feel like pro-school choice/pro-charter school people don't understand the realities of education issues for poor black and brown kids. like, sure it sounds like it should work, but it definitely does not measurably improve education and just diverts funding from programs directed toward poor kids.
