Comment Re:Trump is already a uniter (Score 1) 516

As someone who has experienced the joy of getting an ID after losing all my documentation in a move I can attest that it can be a nightmare to get a new ID if you currently don't have any. Every form of ID requires another form of ID to request (exception being the birth certificate, your parents can request a copy. Good thing they live forever!) The only way I was able to get my ID replaced was because someone was sympathetic and willing to bend the rules.

Unless you did some heavy gerrymandering you might end up with a few hard left states and a bunch of new "battleground" states. California and a bunch of other states have an agreement that all of their electoral votes go to the state's overall popular vote and it's the larger cities that swing California so far to the left. What you're proposing could very well make things worse overall.

How is this guy somehow vindicated by not being the first carrier? He still did every single irresponsible act he did when we believed he was the first. I would say this actually makes him look worse because due to the revision of the timeline there's a bigger chance that he might have heard about some mysterious new illness and should have been more careful. I mean, it's not like STDs were unheard of before the 80s

Comment Depends (Score 1) 136

Are we talking just friendly requests or court orders that went through the full legal process? If it's just a request the response should be "Screw off, go get a warrant." I'm of the opinion that anyone that stores data for you in a professional capacity is acting as an agent on your behalf and should enjoy the same legal protections that you yourself would have if you had the data yourself.
