Oh sure, "crimes against nature" as defined by what were grassroots/localized-pockets of christfags is insane and violates the spirit of the constitution but doesn't come close the "New Deal" conspiracy from on high. Abortion? Uh... if you actually believe what most of the country supposedly believes, then majority of the US are hypocrites on that issue. Funny how sacrosanct feely mojo makes fetal death in preggo assault to be murder, but holy mothers are suddenly another matter for signing up to destroy the same tissue. MOST claim to believe in "souls" and not the original ancient meaning of mere person but inviso-glowy "energy" shit. Fuck, the majority of Americans believe in ANGELS... You're describing theocracy, nanny nothing. Even the "left" likes "In God we trust" on the money, so don't even pretend they're not unconstitutionally religious when they're in the mood. The "social liberal" platform is entirely composed of nanny state bullshit. It's their pseudo-liberal, religiously "humanistic" Word of Man pseudo-priesthood that allows them anything on their holy pseudo-proxy word. It's crazier at bottom and sleazier all around. Decrying the rather unpopular excesses of the Religious Right deflects nothing. They did bother with amendments for prohibition, didn't they? That's almost impressive. The libtards don't ever and actively claim they don't have to. Modernity, progress, etc. They're legal corruption incarnate, and they fucking know it. Stop sliming around the garbage heap. You won't come up cleaner than the religious nuts. The growing police state wasn't their baby. Ironically, they wanted to abort that one.

"Living constitution" isn't the proper US system. It's a wink-wink-nudge-nudge farcical revisionism that ignores original intent gleefully. The socially liberals ARE heavy proponents of the lie, though conservatives didn't help. They love their illiberal nanny and police state, which are both unconstitutional, unless you squint then look at some other document completely.

Seriously? They were libertarians using modern terminology. "Classically" liberal isn't "socially liberal". "Socially liberal" isn't really liberal at all but owns the word now. The "living Constitution" is the notion that the judiciary can rewrite ("reinterpret') the Constitution without bothering with amending (even when history has them dead to rights about the original intent). It's how the 1st's "no law" becomes any law they feel like with a clear obscenity exemption, which supposedly prompts the need for government to tell us what we're actually allow to say, natch. It's literally something they explicitly reference to do this and worse. You playing dumb, or are you really this ignorant?

"This paper assesses gender disparities in federal criminal cases. It finds large gender gaps favoring women throughout the sentence length distribution (averaging over 60%), conditional on arrest offense, criminal history, and other pre-charge observables. Female arrestees are also significantly likelier to avoid charges and convictions entirely, and twice as likely to avoid incarceration if convicted. Prior studies have reported much smaller sentence gaps because they have ignored the role of charging, plea-bargaining, and sentencing fact-finding in producing sentences."
And that's only one facet of gynocentric privilege in the injustice system. Thank social injustice AND chivalry.

Actually, he WAS owed for his contributions to the war then bypassed by nepotism then accused of stealing when he actually used his own personal funds. Benedict did had genuine grievances and reason to flee his sleazy enemies. It's not hard to research either.

There ARE enough. They just don't want to hire, pay, or train (as in standard practices or specific house standards for full pro projects, NOT base coding abilities/knowledge we actually DO know) us. Instead, they hire false credentialed jargon spouters (who don't even own their own computers prior, much less are remotely computer geeks ever) from body shops called consultancies (an inserted, ironically costly layer to setup a racket), pay them less (paying through the consultancy has little to no rules, paying "consultants" junior level for intermediate or beyond level work is never prevented, captive labor doesn't want to get thrown back for rocking the boat), and half-assedly train them (Hell, have a local, with years of experience, train their own inexperienced replacements for his own higher level position in a few WEEKS) because they think it's a bargain to get shitty code on the cheap and don't comprehend how net costs actual work over time in the software industry, much less care about quality or security.

Tinder's counterproductive to intimate relationships since it exists specifically for hookup culture. Most males are regarded as less than average attractiveness relative to pretty boys that actually stick out in the minds of most women (ignoring a male's resources or social statuses), so the entire swiping-faces format's worthless for your average guy looking for a serious relationship. Mutual attraction's unlikely. Considering the vastly different values and preferences of most women, actual compatibility's practically impossible for most tech-geeks (as opposed to fake geek chic hipsters, not that they're all pretty either or capable of sufficient substance for serious intimacy).

The "Fixed." in my last post was supposed to be on its own line since the rest of my post was supposed to be a rewrite of part of your post, but I forgot I had to insert manual line brakes...
