Officials claim that more than 1,000 Ohio children are "trafficked into the sex trade each year." Here's why they're wrong.

+Kevin Quinn do right-wingers ever lie, Kevin? Is every single report/story that doesn't support your partisan view automatically a lie? Really?
Hmmmm.... That would suggest you're the "good guy" and anyone who's not a right-wing partisan hack is a "bad guy".
Is that really what you think, Kevin? Is your reality so drab and boring that you create this fantasy for yourself? You truly believe you and team R are actually trust righteous while everyone else are just liars, bad people?

Side note: speaking of liars. I've caught you lying about me how many times now? It's funny because I don't even have to go back and provide the proof, this last time you actually did it for me! You accuse me of saying something then posted the link showing me state quite the opposite.

Ha, oh Kevin 🙄

It looks like we are officially on track for a final determination as to whether existing federal civil rights laws apply to transgender people, particularly public school students. In response to orders from President Barack Obama's administration that school districts are obligated, under Title IX, to accommodate the needs of transgender students to use the public facilities of their selected (not birth) sex, officials in a pack of states are suing to stop it.

+Susan Sons that doesn't really address the fundamental issue tho. We do have a federal gov, we do have civil rights laws, we do have public schools (which one can opt out of if they so choose). So, that's reality.
What to do about states targeting minorities? Kansas has put up a bounty on trans people that use the "wrong bathroom".
What do do about this, freedom lovers?

Hillary Clinton's campaign insists that her exclusive reliance on a private email server was allowed. It wasn't.

+Mike Noyes which of libertarian candidates are you supporting? Which one would have the greatest impact on the general election?
So you think the gov, thru the courts, should be forcing their will on the CPD?

This is, of course, a brilliant idea, and not just because Trump/Sanders will be an innately interesting combination. Why shouldn't candidates from opposing parties debate each other before the nominations wrap up?

Donald Trump's supporters can be a rough bunch, but it turns out they're nothing compared to a cadre of angry Bernie Bros.
Of disruptions and death threats.

Handy rule of thumb: Bills named after victims (or those with cutesy acronyms) should raise red flags; they're more likely than usual to be classic examples of the legislative sub-variant of the "hard cases making bad law" principle. 
Hard cases make bad law and exploiting grief is bad politics.

+Matthew Kuraja Exactly, a good rule of thumb to follow is legislation titled in that manner should actually carry the opposite title.

Rather than trim her gun policy agenda to fit the Constitution, Hillary Clinton wants to trim the Constitution to fit her policy agenda. 
Why abolish it when you can ignore it?
