Are you basing this being a 6-3 ruling on the fact that the dissent was only signed by the three "liberal" members of the court, and not (either) Roberts or Barret? I can see a case where either of those would simply not sign a dissent against the overall decision for political reasons.

You could argue (and indeed, at least one lawyer and one justice did) argue that there is only one mandate, which the White House is obfuscating by pushing it through different three-letter orgs with slightly different requirements in order to get around the fact that they don't actually have the authority to mandate that everyone in the country get the jab.

Didn't Antarctica have a case of a fully vaxxed research station having an outbreak not too long ago?

Hop the border and claim asylum once in a friendly state? There are only so many options for non-compliance.

JPM is comparably sane, they have retained their unjabbed workers and just let them work from home.

This is coming to a close as soon as they can manage.

You have Sgt. Johnson, who is probably even more badass than chief considering he's the only non-augmented human to survive the destruction of Delta Halo, but you still feel the need to race-swap the Keys? That's just bull.

How do you feel about the other games in the series? Steam only has 2070, 2204, and the remake of 1404. GOG looks to have the rest (aside form 1800, which I'd guess is a Ubisoft exclusive.) I've been playing a modded version of Civ 4 Col, but the economy is pretty basic, even as much as the mod expands it, and it gets dull after a while. I don't intend to play much in MP, so the game being smooth/enjoyable in single-player is my primary concern.

I was under the impression that Jack Murphy didn't get into holes.

If this is true this nation is irrevocably fucked.

I understand this to have been common in Europe, but I haven't heard any stories of this occurring in the US. Do you have some specific examples for either region?

Vaxpass required to access bank account?

If they gain seats in 2022 this wouldn't surprise me, but I wouldn't consider it likely (I'm fairly black/doompilled, but I don't think we're this far gone. Cutting people off from their money is basically guaranteeing a civil war, and that's not something you start unless you're either forced into it or think you're guaranteed to win.)

Not vaxxing children to be treated as child abuse?

You'll probably see some of this in more lefty cities, but I'd be surprised to see this even in full states (outside simple abuse of power of the type we've seen for forever from CPS.)

Crimes against unvaxxed to be unprosecuted?

I'm almost willing to bet this is already happening in select jurisdictions.

I bought WWII to play with siblings, and dropped $10 on a battle pass for Warzone, both of which against my better judgement, and in fact basically immediately regretted the battle pass purchase. If you have some friends to play with and can find a way to play them without giving ActiBlizz any money they're a lot of fun, but the only people substantially woker than them are indies (and yeah, they probably aren't the worst in this area among the big publishers, but that's mostly a matter of press, not a matter of what they believe, IMO.)

COD still does it, and Killing Floor (though it's mechanically one trigger there I believe), but otherwise I haven't seen any series that allow it in either SP or MP.

Think someone could get away with naming themselves Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber, or Gaige Grosskreutz? (or if you want to be fun about it, Joseph Rosengone, Anthony Goober, or Gaige Dumbfuck?)

I believe that a DIAS could probably be manufactured from an MRE spoon so long as it can be bent and hold shape, which would allow you to convert any(?) semi on the platform to fully auto, though for models which fire a larger cartridge the dimensions would probably be different. I haven't seen any examples of a DIAS for an AR-9, -10, or -12.

Funny thing is you can just by the fire control parts too, but possessing those and an AR lower together is not allowed unless you've gotten the stamp, and unless you know somewhere you can buy the FCG for cash/anonymous crypto, yeah, grabbing one off a rack in bumfuckistan is gonna be way easier and less likely to end you up on the wrong end of the long dick of the law.

Automatic lowers

You can buy civilian lowers which match the original M16 specs except for the "third hole' which accepts the pin for the auto sear.

Sad thing is, the gameplay in this one is probably the best in the series (though it has some flaws.) If this game had progression like the MCC it'd be great.

Do you have a list of what was removed? I still see most of the Reach stuff (at least the full armor sets are still there and a number of the individual pieces.) I don't like the idea of having to pay $10 for a bunch of cosmetic items in Halo (never had to do that before), and paying $10 for a specific set is even worse, but I haven't seen anything reliably indicating they removed content from the BattlePass to put it in the shop.

Shooting them would be legal in most states. You'd still go through a BS prosecution for defending yourself, but using lethal force to defend yourself against a Lynch mob is perfectly legal.

"When people are shown the facts of a situation, rather than the media narrative, they come to the wrong conclusions. Therefore, we're going to make it harder for people to come to the wrong conclusions by limiting access to inconvenient facts. #KillKyle"

Did I get this about right, you think?
