I meant the restoration becomes ministerial.
I got that, I just don't know what ministerial means in this context, and Google doesn't help.

Re: Whither the GOP? (post-Trump edition)

I'm talking about everyone that got a bonus check from their employer last year. House GOP leaders are making the midterms all about the tax law and it's not a challenge to sell. If it's not a challenge to sell, then why do only 27% of voters approve of it, while 36% disapprove? People have gotten ...

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

To be clear I think the right view is you can have whatever preferences you have and it’s fine. I’m only annoyed when people tell me there is a moral component to preferences in circumference but not altitude. As any formerly-closeted gay guy can tell you, you can't fight or fly or fuck your way ou...

It sounds terrible but it is a thing to be discussed. The revenue model has to shift, and you should talk about that. It does, but what kind of moron is dumb enough to pose the question that way?

Re: Orange is the new President

These are uncharted waters, but if a president becomes the subject or target of a grand jury investigation and chooses not to testify while in office, especially if he ends up being an unindicted co-conspirator in a prosecution that results in convictions, I think there is a high probability that a...

And it's partially based on information referred by Mueller, meaning there's an investigation that's not Russia-related going on, otherwise Mueller would have done it himself.

And, depending on who you genocided and what you have to offer, it's entirely possible they'll totally be cool with it. Just ask friends of America like Dr. Shiro Ishii, the Johnny Appleseed of bubonic plague in Manchuria/most famous independent consultant in the history of Fort Detrick.
