The e-mail includes this bit: "Judge Neil Gorsuch follows the same principled approach espoused by Justice Scalia. He carefully applies the statuary text and he follows the Constitution’s original meaning."
Seriously -- "statuary text"? I've heard of people viewing the law as an edifice, or as graven in stone, or as fixed and unmoving, but not literally as a statue.
This is so 21st-century: rather than work hard to get actually physically fit, she works hard to get good at a video game about physical fitness.
The Paris attacks left us all concerned about a similar terrorist attack happening to us, and wondering what we can do to prevent it. Let's look at the data. Almost all the attackers in the Paris attacks were either French or Belgian citizens, so we should certainly regard French and Belgian citizens trying to enter this country with extra scrutiny. And of the terrorist attacks that have actually taken place on U.S. soil, the vast majority were committed by U.S. citizens, so we should be especially cautious about allowing U.S. citizens to enter the U.S.
In fact, to be really safe we should kick everybody out of the country and only allow them back in one at a time after a thorough individual background check. Who will conduct this background check, I'm not sure....
From the New York Times:
Robert L. Livingston resigned in scandal in 1998 just days before he was set to take over the House speakership. Now, as a prominent Washington lobbyist, he said he was advising [new majority whip] Mr. Scalise on policy and leadership issues.
“He doesn’t ask for it,” Mr. Livingston said of his advice. “I volunteer it.”
Such selflessness! Who ever heard of a Washington lobbyist volunteering his advice, free of charge, to a Congressional leader? That's the kind of civic-mindedness that America needs more of.
Which raises the disturbing possibility that Mr. Camping could actually be right, and the remaining 99.998% of us would never know. Not to mention the even more disturbing possibility that he was actually right the first time around, in 1994; the rest of us slept through both the Rapture and Judgment Day, and we're already started on the Millennium without noticing.
What if they gave an apocalypse, and nobody came?
