It's not 1790 anymore, I don't care what the intent of the writers were at the time. Their opinion of free speech and likely didn't include internet pornography , and their opinion of a 'the people' definitely didn't include a black woman.

They had some noble ideals but we should not be beholden to the whims of these men long dead.

Edibles are hard to dose. I still smoke occasionally because I like the aroma's burning gives.
Also the effects of every method is slightly different.

They come nicely portioned into 5 or 10mg increments from my dispensary here in CO. This is why it's important to legalize and regulate substances instead of banning them in a panic.

Agreed. What manufacturer do you suggest for an all metal non creaky laptop with a good touchpad that supports Linux/UNIX well? That's what I've been paying Apple a premium for for close to a decade now, but they've completely jumped the shark.

I'd hate to go back to plasticky laptops and bad battery life. I'm willing to spend money to achieve that. Where do you suggest?

If someone coded up a vi fork so I could hotlist 12 or so of my favorite commands as virtual buttons on this display bar, without memorizing vi arcanery, that might actually be pretty cool, lack of tactile feedback and all.

But no one will do this, the OS will probably be unable to tell that I'm even running vi in the parent window.

just running uBlock origin and noscript at the moment, though I do run noscript with everything globally allowed, then blacklisting domains that bother me/seem irrelevant as needed.

I know, not the most secure but I'm more into it for making stupid JS design go away than out of paranoia of a script that doesn't visibly annoy me. Maybe I'll try ghostery or play with my NoScript settings. Thanks for responding!

Godwin's law doesn't indicate that the reference to Hilter and Nazism is always out of place though. Just that it tends to occur.

In this case we're talking about a politician attempting to gain power by scapegoating minorities and immigrants, and the comparison is for once, apt.

Here is Mr. Godwin himself on Trump:

Trump is actually speaking like Hitler though. This is not just partisan bickering. People don't have to do business with those that support fascists. No one in 1933 thought Hitler was going to lead the country in mass murder either -- it is a *good thing* to point this out before it gets out of control.
