Saying that the US revolutionary war is "legitimate" is like saying that if you have a shootout with your landlord and drive him out it was a perfectly legitimate way to gain legal ownership of the house...

Somehow the US Revolution was legitimate but not the English Civil Wars and Revolutions that turned it into a parliamentary system.

Jake, care to explain how that makes any sense?

Yeah so this was posted on the Daily Beast and popped onto my radar

tl;dr Suing people to prevent being sued by the victims for not doing enough to stop the massacre, claims they're doing this out of compassion for the victims. Covering their ass.

I wonder, are planning to find the rightful ruler of every single former noble title in Britain, down to the last barony, like you are for the kingdom? It's all well and good to find the rightful King of England, but what about the rightful Duke of Kent, or Earl of Suffolk, for example? After all, a king is far from the sole rightful owner of the land within a kingdom. Outside of his demesne, its his vassals, both direct and indirect, that are the rightful owners of the land (and each duchy and earldom with its own independent succession laws, just to make it even more fun), and those claims are every bit as important as the king's. If you want to restore feudalism to England with the descendants of the old nobility in power, there's a lot more to consider than just the king himself.

Sacha Baron Cohen got a bunch of Republicans (elected, formerly elected, or heads of GOP-leaning lobby groups) to say they support giving preschoolers guns. (With the exception of Matt Gaetz, who apparently has a dash of common sense.)
