Sex for Slats now is it?

The Donald famously breached the Great Firewall of China, but now a purported Republican wants to try and build a much weaker firewall to try and censor Arizonans? :confused:

And, as always, who defines what material is “offensive”?

Legally, could Arizona even pledge that money to a border wall? Ex-governor Jan Brewer found out that DC doesn’t like it when states step on its toes regarding immigration, and AFAIK Congress has to appropriate all money spent by the Feds, so it’s not as though AZ could just cut a check for the amount of their “Build it Tall” fund and mail it to Trump.

All of which might substantiate that article’s claim that this could be a bogus law proposal done to raise awareness.

Doesn’t that kinda happen anyway when one undergoes the reassignment surgery?

If you keep legacy organs lying around to do that sort of thing then it seems like the trans didn’t complete the transition?

I find it’s all so very confusing.

And the Canadians jeer us for not using metric.

…though it seems to me that the only time the Canadians will say metric is a good thing is when they’re making fun of us 'Muricans. Otherwise, it sucks, they know it sucks, and they (like the Brits) use it as little as possible…last I was in a Subway in Canada, they were still using inches and “footlong” :slight_smile: :+1:

Doesn’t President Obama still smoke? That could be awkward.

Also, in my state, folks have long been dodging restrictions by snagging smokes from the military. If HI can’t put the kibosh on that practice, this ban is going to do nothing except deprive the Hawaiian state government of beaucoup tax bucks.
