    This is true. While I think Marbury v. Madison yielded a desirable result, it wasn't the correct result. My preference would have been for the court to rule differently and for the Constitution to be amended. After 230 years or however long its been since Marbury, I think judicial review, rightly or wrongly, fits under the "prescriptive constitution" doctrine. Like Marbury, I think Roe yielded a desirable result but was one without any constitutional basis. However, 60 years later, I think the prescriptive constitution concept arguably applies to Roe as well. Not sure I agree with the prescriptive constitution argument and never really thought a lot about it. It's something to at least consider where reliance interests are present.

    While that does suck, sprinkler systems cost a fortune and will kill small businesses.

    If people wanted kennels that didn’t kill their pets, the free market would have dictated that sprinklers be installed long ago. Therefore it’s obvious that there is no market for keeping pets alive and any regulation suggesting we should do that would be a waste of everyone’s time and money.

    Is it a bad thing that a pandemic that has killed 700k+ Americans is going to result in fewer vaccine mandates in some places?

    "Any adult who pushes the perverted LGBTQ agenda on our children will be promptly removed from all positions within Texas government agencies," Huffines, a former state senator, added.

    I don’t understand how this piece of shit can walk around in public with takes like this much less be contending for a role in government. I mean I grew up there, so I can, but it still never fails to jar me

    Is this Texas vaccine mandate ban for schools? I was just reading it in the context of covid vaccinations, but are they banning all vaccine mandates entirely? What a fucking train wreck of a state

    from what I have read this seems to be strictly related to covid vaccination so far. havent seen much related to schools, but some businesses have already come out and said they will still do it as they felt federal supersedes any state ruling on the matter.

    I’m 39 and have long hair damn near to the middle of my back. My son will wear his hair long as all of our boys do. That would be a fist fight worthy confrontation in my eyes telling my son to cut his hair.

    Stock up on delta 8 if you partake
    ---UPDATE--- Efforts to get a TRO (Temporary Restraining Order) against the Delta 8 ban failed. We will be pulling Delta 8 off of our shelves. Please come into the store or place your order online immediately. Limited to stock on hand and no returns.

    The ban seems murky. I wonder if places outside of texas will continue shipping. Seems safer than trying to buy in store right now

    i think it's a texas health code notice and they always viewed it as a controlled substance?

    the legislature tried to get a bill about this going but it didn't make it out of committee.

    This right winger who is also the biggest pothead I know was trying to tell me a few weeks ago how the Texas Supreme Court has already ruled Delta 8 legal forever. I didn’t even have the energy to argue.

    That's what they say, but I think the actual text of the law speaks to d9 and they just tossed d8 in unilaterally. No idea how that could be enforceable, but I'm probably not going to be testing it because texas
