Blueton doesn't need to anyone to publicly call him a moron. We already know that. Lol. He still thinks that drinking baby's urine with his morning coffee is hip.

Sanctuary cities ruling: When a judge quotes Sean Spicer, it’s not a good sign for the White House

Quote:
When a long list of comments from President Trump, his surrogates and his spokesmen shows up in a federal court ruling, it’s fair to say it can only mean one thing: a constitutionally questionable executive order is about to get a judicial smackdown.

That was true in March, when federal judges in Hawaii and Maryland suspended Trump’s travel ban, saying the administration had showed a clear animus toward Muslims, despite government lawyers’ claims to the contrary.

And it was true Tuesday, when U.S. District Judge William H. Orrick of California temporarily froze Trump’s executive order on sanctuary cities, ruling that a case could be made that it violated the Constitution.
Quote:
In court, the government tried to make the case that the order doesn’t actually do anything, at least not at the moment, because the administration has yet to define what exactly a sanctuary city is or threaten any particular jurisdiction with a loss of funds. It was their way of convincing the judge to toss out the lawsuit on the grounds that no city or county has yet suffered any harm.

But in public, administration officials boasted about how the order would force sanctuary cities to their knees, singling out particular places. The order described in court as essentially an empty shell was portrayed in news conferences, briefings and television interviews as a powerful tool to protect the public from dangerous undocumented immigrants being shielded by wayward cities and counties.

It was that gap that disturbed Orrick.

In his ruling, the judge pointed to a February interview between Trump and former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, in which Trump called the order “a weapon” to use against cities that tried to defy his immigration policies.

“I don’t want to defund anybody. I want to give them the money they need to properly operate as a city or a state,” Trump said in the interview. “If they’re going to have sanctuary cities, we may have to do that. Certainly that would be a weapon.”

The judge also cited news conferences in which Attorney General Jeff Sessions threatened to “claw back any funds” awarded to a city that violated the order.

And the judge brought up remarks by White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who said in no uncertain terms that “counties and other institutions that remain sanctuary cities don’t get federal government funding.”

Actually worse as your Idiotic strawman arguments stands regardless of who led it.

Pathetic attempt to discredit thousands of scientists and organisations because of a video you found about one man.

I'm afraid you're nailed.
Your article just says Nye will join the march in Washington in any case.
You're are nailed in your pathetic strawman attempt.

You warned me about the video so I don't need to watch your pathetic attempt to dismiss the noble actions of thousands of scientists and organisations based on some video you found of one actor.

Truly, truly pathetic.

Case dismissed.
Rather than go through this contortion act. might it have been easier just to say "well, I guess you were right about him being one of the leaders of the march. Maybe I should have researched it a little more. My bad."

I see your list contains the League of Extraordinary Scientists and I was wondering if you might have missed the Wonder Twins and/or the Ambiguously Gay Duo.

42%?? mmm, I don't think so

It's 27% for General corps and 25% for Manufacturing and processing in my province, for example.

Corporate taxes include taxes on corporate income in Canada and other taxes and levies paid by corporations to the various levels of government in Canada. These include capital and insurance premium taxes; payroll levies (e.g., employment insurance, Canada Pension Plan, Quebec Pension Plan and Workers' Compensation); property taxes; and indirect taxes, such as goods and services tax (GST), and sales and excise taxes, levied on business inputs.

Corporations are subject to tax in Canada on their worldwide income if they are resident in Canada for Canadian tax purposes. Corporations not resident in Canada are subject to Canadian tax on certain types of Canadian source income (Section 115 of the Canadian Income Tax Act).
Effective January 1, 2012, the net federal corporate income tax rate in Canada was 15%, or 11% for corporations able to claim the small business deduction; in addition, corporations are subject to provincial income tax that may range from zero to 16%, depending on the province and the size of the business.

Canada has moved up three places to eighth in a global comparison of the most advantageous place to pay corporate taxes, placing the country in the top 10 for the first time.

I know, I know...it's tough to swallow, isn't it, when you have such confirmation bias about how left wing we are up here.

Why does this whole science bashing conversation remind me of the good ole Project Steve?

They should come up with a similar one for climate change.

All scientists named Scott who agree that the evidence for mankind influencing the climate sign here. There is no debate about that, sorry, it's kind of like evolution, it's true whether or not you believe it.

Getting more a more desperate in trying to recover from your considerable embarrassment.

If only you would think before you post.

Guess who sounds like the person having a hissy fit by the way.
