Political Pundits / Re: Article 50 US code 842

It has nothing to do with labor unions.

FFS, have you ever read a history book?? Communism destroys every society that it gets ahold of.

Venezuela is the latest victim.
Not touting communism. It's one thing for the US government to acknowledge certain domestic groups as enemies of the state, which it does. Though it's a different matter to criminalize the existence of the group or the association to them.

Can you name a single case of communist parties sharing power in a peaceful way in a parliament or other elected body??

It's an ideology that has all the answers, therefore doesn't need to listen to anyone else or share power.

Marxism is a social/political virus that is 100% fatal to society, if you don't kill it, it will kill you, quite literally in many cases.
Again, not touting communism. Communism played a key role in the organization of labor unions which were peaking in membership and picketing like mad at the time of this code. It's so broadly scoped it reads like an idea rather than legistation. Still there's nothing in it that wasn't secured by the Taft Hartley act almost ten years earlier.
Did I kill the conversation? Am probably purposely being annoying, because it's possible for a person to both agree and disagree with something based on practice vs principle. It's annoying anyone would agree with this in principle today. The communist foothold in the US during the 50's was firmly planted in the labor unions and this code granted the government the power to force communist leadership out of unionized groups. At the time, considering a third of US citizens were unionized, in practice that may have been very important. It's not anymore, so right now the principle wins. It's unconstitutional and there's currently no reason to deny the rights of the whole, when there's other laws in place to deal with those who forfeit their rights as individuals.

Although communists were involved with labor unions they didn't necessarily play a key role. Entryism is a prime tactic of communists, they infiltrate an organization that is tangentially related to their goals then they corrupt the organization to their ends. Many in government were aware of this, hence provisions of the Taft Hartley act and these laws.

Today, with the rise of ANTIFA and other neo-Marxist organizations, I think the laws become relevant again. We need a bulwark to protect ourselves from this threat that has already taken over the humanities departments of most major universities. I'd like to see these laws used to purge the American universities of neo-Marxist teachings. On the surface this might seem anti-first amendment but in practice it's the opposite since it's ANTIFA is the one trying to shut down free speech on college campuses.

Do "we"  think that President Trump is somewhat congruent to Nazis?

I would like to explore the evidence. please.

My reference was to Scrappy's comments about learning from Europe's 'horrible mistakes'. Scrap, as usual, is self-contradictory and full of shit.

No way that wouldn't end up accidentally killing some prisoners, though.

And, they do give some prisoners headmeds.
Do know some prisoners get meds; mentioned that previously. Not sure why it would kill them. It's standard practice to medically treat people who are a danger to themselves; see no reason why it should be different for those who are a danger to others.
Give literally everyone in every large-enough group the same medication, and at least one of those people will have an adverse reaction to that medication.

Can you give it to me stuffed with $100 bills?
Gave money too, but felt obligated to also send an actual gift as this year it's not only birthday but also graduation. Due to timing of school and upcoming winter, the kids almost exclusively received clothing or money for clothing for birthdays, even from extended family, with the understanding Christmas would bring no clothing. As adults they want clothes for their birthdays. :laugh:
