Just the logistics of a civil war would be a nightmare and you'd probably have an insane desertion rate.

If you think the people with the means to build death robots in Silicon Valley wouldn't side with the people who think taxes are bad, and poor people should pay for their own drat healthcare... Boy are you going to be disappointed.

The states that could aren't the ones that would secede. The closest to "Could fund a military and the civilian population" would probably be Texas and I'd say that's contingent on both the surrounding states not joining in to drain additional resources as well as the Gulf of Mexico remaining open and unblockaded for shipping.

assume

i was watching steph ruhle earlier and they were making the point that because ratings have switched to national news as opposed to local news that the the headliner for a news agency is going to me much more integral to the business as a whole- that personality is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. their interest lies in making sure their investment stands.

by dropping lauer immediately they’re on the hook for prolly 30 mill if they’re lucky. conan got more. but besides that, they’re showing that the environment has changed. news as we know it will change.

that in mind i thought about who’s been the top of the top millionaire stars in the past-say-decade

-tom cruise
-the rock
- johnny depp
-nick cage

thats as far as i can think at the moment

-tom cruise has a circle of protection right now from scientology and we haven’t been able to instant it off yet
-the rock has worked his loving rear end off transitioning from wrestling to movies, he’s prolly ok
-nick cage has had enough lawsuits that i think reasonably hes been vetted enough

The best part about this bill is how people can avoid taxes by becoming their own business. I already have a passthrough LLC, so I'll probably leverage that to become a subcontractor to my current company. Job creation!

I was sorta wondering more about that immigrant murder case and the best explainer for it is... Redstate. :psyduck:

https://www.redstate.com/sarah-rumpf/2017/11/30/lied-kate-steinle-case/

The prosecution went all-in for the premeditated first-degree murder charge and barely gave any attention to the manslaughter charge. The dude, a homeless repeat-illegal immigrant with a second-grade education, found a LEO hair-trigger single-action SIG and fired it off for who-knows-why and the bullet ricocheted off concrete and killed the woman.

That's a hell of a lot more complicated than REPEAT ILLEGAL WANTED TO KILL A WOMAN, WE GOTTA BUILD THE WALL, not that it will matter. Even the Trump Tweet was kinda halfass.
