Wow, lots of volleys both ways in the last hour.

Just a fundamental point of logic for the discussion. Lots of back and forth about 'Constitution this' and 'Constitution that'........has anyone pondered, and I wonder if it will be brought up judicially,.........the Constitution of the United States was written by, intended to be the basis of laws for, and ratified by, Citizens of the United States.

Logic would seem to dictate rights recognized by that Constitution apply to Citizens of and Legal Residents of The United States.

Illegal Aliens do not fall under either category so exactly what basis is claimed to confer 'Constitutional Rights' on this class?

The Constitution in places talks about citizens and in other places talks about persons. Rights of citizens apply to citizens, rights of persons apply to persons. This is Constitution 101, remedial class.

Real reason Rump suddenly stopped separating kids comes out. The kids get a green card once mommy or daddy are deported! Also they get free welfare until they turn 18! Rump backfires!

Vadim Rybin,

The oft quoted number I've seen for interstellar colonization is about 10,000. Enough people that there are a few who know each necessary job and other skills can be learned from stores of information. Basically a small city or large town.

The next question I have is does the Trump administration have the ability to reunite all the families given the deliberate chaos they have created?

Ability = funds and grit
they have no funds, they have no grit

Vadim Rybin, other people have calculated a much smaller number. Many of these studies are in what the minimum number of people would be needed to colonize a planet around another star. I believe they assume books exist to hold knowledge, many of them done before computer storage supplanted ink on paper and video storage.

As to how many humans can live on this planet, the question is at what technology level. A very large number, perhaps at the number you suggest can if they are living like cavemen. To live in a highly technological level the number is much smaller than today. Technology uses power and the supply is finite.

CO2 levels are already over 400ppm. Human brains are affected at levels not much higher, levels we will reach in less than a century. IQ will drop soon if we don't act to curb our energy appetite. Once IQ starts to drop, progress is over and so is humanity.

If we are lucky we will develop fusion power. But if it is done with the military involved it will be kept secret from much of the world. Does not help. If we don't and do not put other plans in place to curb our emissions humanity will earn itself extinction.

This is emerging as a recurring story: Parents have their kids taken away at the border, agree to voluntary deportation because they think that means they will be reunited, but instead end up on a plane home while their young child stays here.
Nice plan!

Yes, the crime of genocide.

We could chose to end this competition for food. We have the knowledge now. We may not have the willpower. If we don't I don't know if our civilization can survive long term. It may be why we haven't found ET. Civilizations may not last long enough.

To end it, we simply limit the number of humans on the planet to a number where we can sustain ourselves.

Capitalists will hate it because they can't expand forever. They will have to make goods that last and have a limited number of customers.

But that is apparently the conclusion of the presiding Judge. Who are we to question the sage knowledge and experience of a seated Judge? [/sarcasm font]

You mean probation department. Judges get about 15 seconds to look at a case at this stage.

Gary Charpentier,
Cooperation is not competition. There is no competition, there is no development. Russia and the United States have been cooperating for 30 years in space, America is buying rocket engines RD-180 from Russia, American astronauts are flying to the ISS on Russian rockets.
As a result, there is no Moonbase, no flights to Mars and satellites of Jupiter, no extraction of resources from the asteroid belt, no flights of interstellar automatic stations.
Russia and America can not make a technological step in the development of terrestrial civilization and create a global space network. China is still weak in space exploration, it follows the path of the Soviet space program.

Competition does not require killing machines. That is what the military builds.

Cooperation is the only way a rocket can be built. Each supplier must cooperate with every other supplier or it won't fly.

Competition is letting a contract out to bid. If you have money to throw away you award more than one bid for the entire project. (Wasteful and causes global warming.)

The USA and Russia barely are able to cooperate enough to not have military action on the ISS. Once Nixon killed NASA the USA was essentially taken out of human spaceflight. No goal exists for it so it is a bastard stepchild.
the ISS is as well as no one can come up with a overriding reason it exists. Most everything done on it could be done cheaper by a robot.
AFAIK the Russian space program is also without a human spaceflight goal.

Setting a world goal of a self sustaining colony on Mars in twenty years and actually having the drive to attempt it is what will drive innovation. No single country will have the resources to accomplish the task.

The issue is getting the politicians to actually buy into the goal as it doesn't seem to translate into votes or bribes to do basic research, unless you want to kill people.

Humanity must stop wanting to kill each other off. We very well might succeed and then what?

Wanting a moon-base, flights to Mars and the satellites of Jupiter is one thing, providing a need for them is another. Necessity is the mother of invention.
Prove global warming and humanity must have bases elsewhere in the solar system to survive and now you have necessity!

Of course, now that he has been caught with his pants around his ankles grabbing children away from mothers.

But... He is freed on bond!!!


Clyde(and others), please consider this. The venue of the charges is one of the most oppressive gun law States in America. The Judiciary in California is notoriously Liberal/Anti Gun. For bond to have been granted by any Judge in those circumstances must have meant the evidence was flimsy(?), the risk of flight was negligible and that risk to the community was not present .

Nope. Gun charges simply don't merit much punishment in California. They also are talking about a house, and that could be the bond, so it may not be a cash bond of 10% to a bail bondsman.

I do know someone who was convicted in California of gun charges. He didn't serve much time, out in less than two years. That was for having a machine gun without a tax stamp.

Some believe, although I don't, that abortions are a Crime Against Humanity.
Forced pregnancy and forced abortion are the crime against humanity. Written law!

Separating children from mothers is likewise the crime against humanity. Written law.
Doing so for apartheid is the crime against humanity, as is apartheid. Written law.

Some people believe the earth is flat.

"Sources said the owner appears to be a firearms collector as opposed to someone about to use the guns in crimes."
There are at least two sides to every story, but the fact of being a convicted felon is a large problem depending on what the conviction was for.
So now there are good felons and bad felons? Felons are felons. That is why they have misdemeanors for things like purse snatching or vandalism. Felonies are for things like bank robbery, rape and murder.

But I have a question to ask. How does someone who is a felon and has to check the box have you ever been convicted get a job where he can earn enough extra cash to buy 553 guns? Most felons are lucky to be able to get a job.

I suspect a little more investigation will turn up something a bit criminal.

Sorry, I did not understand correctly.

In America, Russia and China, part of the space programs given to the military, it was from the beginning of space exploration. The other part is given to science and civil needs.

That was the beginning. To build a better killing machine. Came from the Nazi's and the V2. I would hope we humans are beyond that need.

China, Russia and USA are bound, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outer_Space_Treaty

Unfortunately it has been my experience where the military goes, weapons follow.

We all know humans can build rockets to blast each other's satellites out or orbit, we need to stop wanting to do stupid things like that and move past our petty differences and realize we are all on this same speck floating in a sea of nothingness and we had better cooperate if we want to have great grandchildren.
