Is Bannon's pardon a proper topic in his examination?

The pardon which Bannon received from Trump had nothing to do with the J6 insurrection.

However, can and should it be a topic for inquiry when he appears before the J6 Committee?

He can't really claim a 5A privilege regarding the crime he was charged with, as he is now immunized by the pardon.

Steve Bannon's defense team is seeking a trial delay.

They're trying to claim that the J6 hearings are prejudicial to a fair trial for their client.

But that seems like a stretch, since he's being tried for contempt for refusing to appear and testify before the Committee.

The age of consent varies from 16 to 18 in the USA.

Has anyone called for a national uniform age of consent?

RCA's 1981 video disk system used a needle riding in a groove.

Like something out of The Flintstones.

It was intended to be a component in RCA's "Dimensia" TV/hi-fi system.

Yes, that's right. "Dimensia."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RCA_Dimensia

All patented and trademarked.

What a disastrous evolutionary dead end for RCA.

Isn't law enforcement overwhelmingly pro 2A?

I always found it odd that cops generally favor the availability of guns and ammunition in the hands of the public.

This seems illogical to me. Unless the underlying message is "we can't protect you."

When the general public is armed, it puts everybody including cops at greater risk of harm and it forces cops to err on the side of using lethal force themselves.

Thus I must conclude that gun love is absurd and irrational and undeserving of respect as public policy.

Would you vote in an election system without a secret ballot?

I guess it's self-evident that the purpose of a secret ballot is to prevent retribution or intimidation by government authorities against those who vote the wrong way.

Would you stop voting if the ballot you cast was indelibly linked with your personal identity and registration?

Let's assume that your detailed voting record can be inspected by anyone, but that the identity of everyone inquiring about your ballot is also recorded.

I put this forward as the ultimate means of vote authenticity and legitimacy.

But would it also amount to the ultimate means of voter suppression?

What happens to Griswold v. Connecticut?

Does legal access to birth control also go back to the state legislatures?

Is this the great unwinding?

Loving v. Virginia?

Obergefell v. Hodges?

Lawrence v. Texas?
