My mother has eczema, usually she gets it on her hands if I have it right.
I'm half Irish and Half Native American, so I don't burn easily, at all. But I have eczema.

Life is sad in the winter and summer

Washington DC banned guns in its confines, and the SC overturned the ban.

The ban IS unconstitutional. The ruling is correct.

What we need is to change the Constitution.

Did....did you just try to compromise PFan?


Don't you know that's pretty much illegal in these parts?

Goddamnit, 5-4 too.

In much the same way as I'm currently blogging about legacy rail infrastructure, the second amendment is just legacy legislation that has no relevance to the 21st century. The world has moved on.

Every case in the Supreme Court is 5-4 in favor of the conservatives.

5 Conservative Judges
4 Liberal Judges

That's how it is right now.

My argument to every person who supported Hilary and now supports McCain is that three judge positions will be up for grabs in the next four years. Do you want them to be conservative?

Nah, I'm not really interested in editing them. I don't know that much about the band - partly through intent, as I've gone off U2 the more I've become involved in the fandom. And I'm not a PT setlist expert.

Try telling that to most people though. Nobody really seems to want to listen

Your Supreme Court is that painfully polarised? No matter what the case, it'll rule along those lines? I can't say I follow it unless a big case like this arises. Never really had much interest in the judiciary anywhere.

Of the three positions up for grabs, how many are retiring conservatives and how many are retiring liberals?

I believe it's two retiring conservatives and one retiring liberal. Not sure, though. I can look it up.

Also, apparently U2's lead single is going to be called The Cedars of Lebanon?

I'm a bit disturbed that Obama reversed his position and supported the lifting of the ban, regardless of whether the ruling is correct or not.

No.

One of the new U2 songs will be The Cedars Of Lebanon. Who knows whether it will be a single or anything. The "lead single" part was a Google mistranslation.
