Topics I've Started

Oregon

Maybe PNWGuy can give a little more backstory, as I'm a recent transplant to a neighboring state.

In a nutshell, Oregon wanted to institute a cap and trade law on fossil fuels. The Republican contingent couldn't stop the vote, so they fled the state, and apparently have called in right wing militias to threaten violence, which has caused the State Capitol to shut down this weekend.

Emoluments legislation?

15 June 2019 - 10:34 PM

I think Nancy Pelosi would be well served by initiating legislation to codify the constitutional ban on emoluments under Federal law. It's not going to go anywhere, of course, but will put the Republicans in a serious bind. If they oppose it, they'll look like they have something to hide and don't respect the Constitution. Both of which are of course true.

Sri Lanka violence

22 April 2019 - 10:03 PM

So this is a bit puzzling to me. It appears that the recent terrorist attacks were perpetrated by radical elements of the Muslim minority against the Christian minority. This seems rather puzzling, unless international elements made the local population their useful idiots. We already know that the Buddhist majority essentially wiped out the Sinhalese (Hindu) rebels with little regard for casualties. A plausible consequence of the current violence (particularly as the Muslim group responsible has also desecrated Buddhist statues) is a war of extermination of Muslims in Sri Lanka. So exactly who does this benefit?
