Politics and Government / Re: Mr. Trump Goes to Washington

That's actually the whole point of the Amendment process.  To overturn the Supreme Court decisions.  It's why the SCOTUS very rarely contradicts itself regardless of what laws are thrown at it.  Even if you throw a million anti-Roe vs. Wade laws at it, SCOTUS will refuse to even hear the cases because it doesn't contradict itself.

Ironbite-its why anti-abortion laws die so often.

I've heard the Supreme Court can contradict itself and create a new interpretation but it only does it if the interpretation is old enough. If I recall right some people were worried around the election that Roe vs Wade is getting to the age where this might be possible.

... aand with some google-fu I confirmed this. Brown vs Board of Education created a new interpretation that the "separate but equal" racial segregation doctrine is unconstitutional. This directly overturned Plessy vs Ferguson that had created the doctrine.

Death count exceeding 52, the latest chapter in the highly contentious and controversial Israel-Palestine conflict, this time launched by people who are angry that the US Embassy in Israel was moved to Jerusalem, which is now recognized as the Israeli capital by the US government.

We're so very lucky anti-abortion lawmakers are as stupid as they are, otherwise they would have learned by now.

Bug Reports / Re: What’s going on with fstdt.com?

I doubt its intentional.  If the site were going down permanently, we'd be redirected to some domain registrar or something.  As it is, it looks like something broke in the backend while Shy's absent.

Well, it's going on a month now and there's been no word.  I've likewise been trying to find people like Anon-E-Moose by using Google but can't find him either.

I did regularly visit the part of the site where Shy chatted and there was no mention or warning.  This is what has me privately worried.

I know! I wonder if it was hacked by some wingnut hacker....perhaps some smelly 4Chan /pol/ jerk or something?

Shy's probably so busying fixing things that it could take months. Remember; FSTDT is VAST and goes back many years!

Shy could at least take a break, say hi and give a quick explanation of what the heck's going on.


I miss my FSTDTs buds, there like Anon-e-moose.

Hey MOOSE! If you're out there, come here, okay?

Maybe the next thing to do is go through the member list on this forum (could be time consuming, I know) to locate familiar names and page them over here to discuss?

Good idea!

What if "Mike" was actually short for "Micycle"?

How many wheels would that contraption have?

....espeically if she's cute JB......JB standing for Jail Bait right?  RIGHT?

Yeah, he basically admitted to wanting to fuck dead teenagers.

That sounds like the motive of the world's most depraved slasher villain.

I hadn't seen any warning either in the most recent OT thread. Something that concerned me though was before the site went down the Fundie of the year 2k17 was going on, but there had been no new updates on that for several weeks leading up to this downtime.

...i guess that's preferable than wanting to fuck living teenagers.

In one sense yes, but in the "that's gross, why would you even think about that" sense I'm just gonna have to say the necrophiles are skeevier.

Wait, if I don't live in France, then where did I get this baguette...?

And where, oh where, did I find this Bordeaux wine?
