    Want a great example - look into the REA (Rural Electrification Administration).
    That's just nonsense

    History gives many examples of such programs being ended.

    My opinion of his motives was all that I was talking about, so why are you babbling about the 14th?

    I don't really give a **** about the VRA. I'm making an overall point about the ****tiness of our SC justices. Scalia's not discussing constitutionality with his racial entitlement crap. He's just blowing his hyperpartisan load all over his own chin.

    And many more of them never being ended. But hey, I gave you one that's been running, and funded by government, beyond it's original need for 70 years now. Show your stuff.

    No, they're not. What you're talking about is penalty, not law, and that's only after the trial and court process.

    What do you think people care about more; your opinion or the constitution?

    Okay, well, I don't see that. He didn't invent the term, and it has been discussed, and it's a reasonably well known principle.

    **** NO. That is a terrible argument.

    This law is the equivalent of only prosecuting murder in 14 of the 50 states. Not. The. Same. Thing.

    Nope, you haven't named one pgm that has never ended. Just ones that haven't ended yet

    Nor have you shown that there's no longer any need for this law.
