Those are neat opinion pieces, one of which from someone who isn't American, but I think Peter Neil is asking about the law as written in the Second Amendment. Can you find the specific enunciation that he is referring to in that amendment?

During recent riots and social unrest, the government's own "well regulated militias" were unwilling and ineffective at protecting anyone and anything, leaving citizens to defend themselves.

Defended against whom?

But the White House trimmed the offer to about $1.7 trillion in talks with senators in a bid to win Republican support which will be needed for any plan to get the 60 votes normally required to advance legislation in the Senate.

lol, Republicans wouldn't support the proposition "the Earth is round" if a Democratic politician said it.

capitalism at its "best"...

Petty theft from desperation and drug war offenses are often handled with heavy penalties and lethal force.

While wage theft is orders of magnitude larger. Along with white-collar financial crimes.

The hammer of law enforcement always disproportionately falls on those with the least economic power, regardless of the severity of the crime.

Workers need to stand up, workers pay tax and are treated like this? 

A large organisation lacking social responsibility like this is disgraceful

Boy, have I got a Manifesto for you guys!

it still is! due to it being a federal holiday that costs us 600 million dollars for only federal employees to be able to enjoy yet another day off.

So you think that Trump made an awful decision that would be bad for the country. Got it.

Oh boy. Now he's going to hate the thing he just said he loved, again, because someone he doesn't like supported it. It must be exhausting being a Trump cultist, always waiting to be told what to think.

yeah its great that Republicans freed the slaves so that we can have this new holiday!

oh and by the way, this was proposed as a holiday originally by.....Donald Trump.

It was included in this "Platinum Plan" for Black Economic Empowerment.

I'm glad to see that just a little bit of "actually Trump proposed this" is enough to make you make a full 180 on your previous opinion that it was an awful idea and bad for the country. A view you held literally yesterday.

Hope everyone enjoys this new holiday, wonder how Pride Month people about the focus being taken away from their month?

I don't think a single day pulls focus from a month.

Apparently, continuing to take advantage of the conspicuous benefits of capitalism’s products and profit are not necessarily considered “collusion with foreign countries” nor “pro-democracy”.

Capitalism is inherently anti-democracy. It's no wonder the state capitalism of the PRC is able to adopt anti-democratic measures so easily and so readily.

Not a Republican, I’m a conservative.

Uh-huh.

It’s not about being happy or unhappy, just think what’s the significance?

I'm sorry you think we shouldn't learn about our own history. I think that's sad.

There have been may horrors in the world done to a lot of people, not just the black community.

US slavery was a horror visited only on African Americans. The end of this monstrous system is what Juneteenth celebrates.

Not really, but anyway, if the left thinks this is appropriate.

I don't think it's appropriate to celebrate the Confederacy and its mulch of traitors. I think flying the Confederate flag is a disgrace, and marks you out as disloyal to the US. But I don't do either. Republicans do.

well ok then, good luck with passing laws that restrict freedoms of choice

I'm glad to hear that you are pro-choice. Most Republicans aren't.

and movement.

Thats doesnt go over well in the USA.

Laws restricting movement abroad in the US already exist. You have the option not to buy a passport, that's your right. But you will be unable to travel abroad.

Laws that allow businesses to restrict access also exist. You have the right not to wear a shirt, or shoes, but you may find you will not receive service.

Until then, there are no consequences, just a bunch of peer pressure and internet attacks against those who do not wish to be vaccinated for personal, medical or religious reasons.

"Personal" reasons, such as, "I read on Qanonwhackjobs.com that the vaccine turns your brain into a moose".

Juneteenth was at best a very locally recognized day until very recently. Nobody know or cared about it until bout 15 minutes ago. If you want to truly celebrate the end of slavery, how about celebrating the day the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution was passed? You know, the one that actually legally ended slavery.

Because it was Juneteenth when it was finally enforced in Texas, marking not just the de jure end of slavery, but the de facto end of slavery in the US (subject to not being imprisoned, of course).

how about reminding us of a history where half a million men gave their lives to free the slaves? The nobility of their cause and deeds?

Memorial Day already exists.

yeah great day! for federal employees only.

anyone else benefit or they just go to work as usual?

Hopefully, employers will recognise it as a day for their employees to have off, too. They might not, though. Like every other Federal Holiday.

Unless you're opposed to the idea of Federal Holidays at all? Not like a Republican to say they want to get rid of Veteran's Day and Columbus Day, but fair enough.

so I cant travel at all or enter certain places if I refuse vaccination?

Yeah.

so much for freedom, huh?

You are free not to get the vaccine. You must also live with the consequences.

thats kind of the opposite of being left alone to make my own choices when I am excluded when I dont make the government mandated "right" choice.

No, you are allowed to make your choices. But you must also accept the consequences.

Then you can just leave those people alone now who choose not to be vaccinated, right?

In Texas, the rolling average of newly confirmed infections has climbed from about 1,000 per day on May 31 to nearly 2,000 this week.

Texan posters here have made it clear: they hate shots that save lives. They love shots that end them. The GOP is a death cult.

You got it wrong--I wrote, as you quoted several times, Palestinian Arabs.

To answer again, Arabs from other nations are from a nation.

This is not an answer to my question. I understand that Saudi Arabs are from Saudi Arabia. Where are Palestinian Arabs from? What does "Palestinian" mean?

Why are you so afraid to answer this very simple question?
