This is my worry :(

(Especially as it looks like Mueller is starting to home in like a mako shark in regards to some of the more, ahem, interesting players in Affair d'Russe like Prince et al.)

Random thought about the religious freedom bullshiat bill.

The whole gist is to legalize bigotry under the veil of religion. And/or to allow religious beliefs to trump the law of the land. So, and this is stretching a bit, but I truly to feel like it passing would the start of a very slippery slope...

Let's say a fundie beats his wife under their belief that the woman submits to the man and he has the right to raid his hand to her cuz it's in the bible or whatnot. Or, even further, his children. When arrested, he uses this law to say "my religion allows me to do this, and you are infringing upon my rights?!"

Yea, child abuse and domestic violence are generally frowned upon, but think about a looney court in a deeply conservative county. Think it would fly?

Or maybe not since double jeopardy might attach.
Certainly a civil trial would then still be possible.

Announcing an immediate open border policy with Best Korea?
A full surrender to NK to end the war?
The sale of SK to Russia for $7,200,000? (Yes that's the Alaska Purchase cost.)

I've got an idea for a web application.  Copy and paste a gif, press a button, and it automatically resizes/optimizes it to exactly 2MB for Fark consumption.  The gif size limit is THE dumbest problem on this site in my opinion.  It would be nice to have a simple fix that doesn't require several iterations to resize.  I can help some with code and may be able to host if someone wants to take the lead.  (or maybe point me to a site that already does this).
