So yes, pedantry. Exactly pedantry.
I don't know about that.  I'm leaning towards trolling.

The word ban does not = the term, "limited exceptions," does it?
Are you being pedantic or just trolling?  Either way, you aren't adding anything to the discussion (whatever it is by now).

BTW, I said abortion is banned with limited exceptions.

Abortion is not banned in the US, at all, period, end of sentence.
*sigh* Abortion is not banned at a federal level.  However, a number of states within the US do ban (legally forbid) abortion, with certain limited exceptions.  I'm not sure how you're unable (or, more likely, unwilling) to understand that.

Abortion isn't even banned yet, is it?
It has been in Ohio since 2019.
Abortion in Ohio is illegal after embryonic cardiac activity can be detected, which typically occurs around six weeks of pregnancy. On April 11, 2019, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed the Human Rights and Heartbeat Protection Act, which bans abortion in the state after an embryonic cardiac activity is detectable. On June 24, 2022, after the Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade, judge Michael R. Barrett lifted a preliminary injunction that had blocked state officials from enforcing the law against certain abortion providers, allowing the Human Rights and Heartbeat Protection Act to take full effect

According to the media, Indiana is the first state to ban abortion, as of yesterday.

Meaning abortion wasn't banned in Ohio.
Because the Ohio heartbeat abortion law is vague enough that it was hard to know if the 10 year old would qualify for an exception.  The fact that Ohio looked at charging the Indiana doctor with a crime suggests that she probably would not have.

Posting an article that happens to quote the AG of Ohio stating the law is exactly the opposite of what you claim it to be really doesn't support your post.

In fact, it just lends further credence to the notion the whole story, to begin with, is just a pile of bull cookies, highlighting the fact there is no limit as to what the CIA/military/media/industrial complex will spew in an effort to achieve their idea of utopia.

But thanks anyway.
Even if it would have been legal in Ohio, what's the big deal about going to another state where abortion is still legal?

I don't usually post covers, but I'd say that this one isn't too bad, especially when you learn that their ages at the time were 15, 13 and 11.

I think that it's pretty well accepted by now that it's pretty hard to find a poll or survey that isn't biased in one way or another depending on the agenda of whoever is sponsoring, conducting and analyzing said poll.

Americans love toting that they won WW2.  So much so that thry ignore literally everyone else who fought in it.  Hell, America wouldn't have won without fhe british canadian, french resistance, russian, and many other nations working together and dividing German forces.
Actually, it's the other way around.  The Brits, Canadians, etc., were losing both world wars until the US came to the rescue.   8)

lol

I think its brilliant.
He can claim to have picked the winner, regardless if which one wins the nomination OR disregard either if one wins the primary but loses the election.

Either way, Trump can claim some kind of victory.
But what if Trump is actually supporting his son Eric?

Your twitter quote says - "It is illegal to use the Presidential Seal for commercial purposes."

Yeah, the copyrightlately.com lawyer debonked that.
It's not a copyright question.  However, the use of the Presidential Seal at a sporting event could reasonably suggest that the event is sponsored or endorsed by the government.  That's the part that's illegal.

Yet as a reasonable person you viewed the pictures from the event and knew that Trump was not the president and that the event was associated with a former president. Other reasonable persons would do the same. It is unlikely that anyone at the event thought they were attending the event of the current President.
Reasonable persons also know that the event was associated with LIV Golf, a controversial golf association funded by the Saudi Crown Prince.  The Presidential Seal is reserved for official presidential duties and events, not for controversial commercial sporting events, even if it's being hosted by a former president. 
(b) Whoever, except as authorized under regulations promulgated by the President and published in the Federal Register, knowingly manufactures, reproduces, sells, or purchases for resale, either separately or appended to any article manufactured or sold, any likeness of the seals of the President or Vice President, or any substantial part thereof, except for manufacture or sale of the article for the official use of the Government of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.


The reasonable consumer knows that Trump is no longer president, therefore Trump can use the seal and call himself president.
Calling himself president is one thing, using the Presidential Seal is another.

Are you saying that it's perfectly legal for Trump to continue using the presidential seal at his golf course even when federal law says that it isn't?

This lawyer says it is legal - https://copyrightlately.com/trump-office-great-seal/
Did that lawyer take a look at Bedminster recently?

I wrote exactly what I wrote, as did you.
But you didn't answer my question.

Reporting that a criminal complaint exists is not scamming anyone. You really struggle with factual content vs what your easily outraged persona believes.
But it is another example of Trump's character and flagrant disregard for the law. 
^The effects of three-card monte journalism are demonstrated right here, as no criminality has been determined.

You were saying?

What has been the result of this blockbuster case!?!?!
I never said that it's a "blockbuster case".  But it is another example of Trump's character and flagrant disregard for the law.  Then again, there are so many other investigations on against Trump that it's understandable that you might not care about this one.

Simply, you don't have a coherent model.
Neither does the OP.  Perhaps you should point out the inconsistencies in his "theory" instead of derailing this thread with your n-body problem nonsense.

Yes, the earth's dimensions are very well understood.  From a round earth perspective, that is.  But what about from a flat earth perspective?

When you describe something illegal, let us know for sure, okay?

Do you mean like illegally using the presidential seal for commercial purposes?
Federal law prohibits knowingly using the printed or other likeness of the presidential seal “for the purpose of conveying, or in a manner reasonably calculated to convey, a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States.”

Violations of the law can result in fines, imprisonment up to six months or both.
Gee, you better contact the DOJ and have them get right on this whopper of a case.
Someone already did.
