    What if they were already a victim (for instance they were raped or beaten up) or they're a witness?

    Here is one unintended consequence of this policy:
     
    If people living in this country without authorization are afraid to go to court, are afraid to contact the police or afraid to get involved with the state system, then crime rates will go up.
     
    Criminals will know that the prosecutors will be crippled because the victims will not testify against them.

    No, I'm only hurt in the sense that I'm a citizen and a patriot and it bothers me that foreign bad actors would interfere in our elections. I think this isn't a way out position to take.

    I'm not sure how Bernie would stop it, although I imagine there are ways to enhance cyber security and target bots. The good thing is Sanders is not in complete denial about it the way Trump is. As we have all seemed to acknowledge the existence of foreign interference, perhaps it is better that someone make an attempt at mitigating the effects rather than denying the existence.

    Because, when you generated 45% of the emmisions and you cut emmisions by moving from coal to natural gas (which has 50% of the carbon footprint) for auxillary power generation, shrinking 2% is easy peasy and has more to do with the economic advantage of Natural gas than any altruistic drive to save the economy.
    Also the economic reality that solar/wind generation capacity is cheaper to build than new nuke or carbon based power generation makes investing in alternative a no brainer.

    The point of the bill is to get folks to stop an consider the consequences of legislation to dictate that people (women) shouldn't control what happens to their own body. Men pass the majority of the laws, judge most if the courts and execute most of the laws.  Having them view the law from a different perspective is a good thing.

    A law requiring vasectomies? Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will not stand for this blatant violation of a (male) person’s bodily autonomy!
    On Sunday, Cruz tweeted an article from a conservative news site about Alabama state Rep. Rolanda Hollis’ (D) bill requiring men to undergo vasectomies at the age of 50 or after the birth of their third child.
    “Yikes. A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything…literally!” Cruz, a staunch opponent of abortion rights, wrote.
    The Republican has advocated for a full ban on abortion with no exceptions, stripping funding for Planned Parenthood, and allowing companies to deny birth control coverage.
    Under HB238, introduced by Hollis on Thursday, men would be legally required to undergo a vasectomy procedure “at his own expense” once he turns 50 or has a third child, “whichever comes first.”
    “Under existing law, there are no restrictions on the reproductive rights of men,” Hollis wrote in the bill’s synopsis.
    In May, Alabama passed a severe anti-abortion law making the procedure entirely illegal unless the mother’s health is in danger, with zero exceptions for rape and/or incest. Doctors who violate the law face a prison sentence of to 99 years.

    90DayFinancier reacted to Steeleballz in Trump defends China's alleged cover-up of coronavirus victims: 'You don't want the world to go crazy'   
    If the Chinese government knew how quickly or how widely this would spread, then it was a huge mistake not to release that information. Many of the people stuck on cruise ships or in quarantine facilities may have cancelled trips all together if they knew how much greater and faster this would turn into an epidemic. 
     
       When I was younger, covering up events of this magnitude was possible. In the modern world it is not. Either you get conspiracy theories that get out of control, or it gets blown open by someone on the inside. If they tried to cover up anything, it was a mistake. 
     
      I don't think this is going away. I think the hope of it diminishing in April is that the virus will not spread as easy when the temperature starts to warm, so new cases may be slower to appear or perhaps stop completely. Even if that does happen though, chances are good it will be back next season.

    Well I got offered a job to Singapore back in October and I was doing processing for that. But that have many cases of coronavirus there
     
     
    Then in December I sat down with the local Republican party about running for Congress because the district got redrawn so the incumbent didn't want to run anymore because it leans Democrat now. They flat out informed me that someone else who I greatly respect was going to run for the seat, and they asked if I would run for the seat if I was given a spot on his committee on regards to veteran and immigration issues. So I agreed to it with the caveat that I will run on 2022 if he doesn't get it. 
     
    So we shall see what happens in November. I am only 36 so I got time. But I did say that they will have a branding issue because he is a older white guy with no military experience. When four out five of the Democrats are black, and one of them is a former Marine as well.

    Trump has said on Twitter that China pays the tariffs. Anyone who knows anything about trade (including Google) can tell you that's not how tariffs work.

    90DayFinancier reacted to Orangesapples in Bernie Sanders can beat Trump with his liberal vision for America. Primary voters know it.   
    Over 55 actually 
     
    https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/483161-bidens-lead-shrinks-in-south-carolina-as-sanders-climbs-to-second-poll
    However, African Americans appear to be split along generational lines. Black voters 55 years and older support Biden by a 40-point margin, but black voters age 54 and younger favor Sanders over the former vice president by a narrow margin of 29 percent to 26 percent.

    Well, the man is not really what I call a rational actor, he was mystified why he couldn't win in NY and California,
     
    but this may be what his advisors are telling him:
     
    You cannot beat Joe in Penn or Minn.
    You are iffy with Joe in WI, MI and possibly all other purple states, you will not repeat 2016.
     
    With Bernie we can take Penn and Definitely WI with the Communist label.
