    Publishers aren't allowed to cancel book deals under the 1st amendment?

    Pretty clear question.

    Are publishers allowed to cancel book deals and still be compliant w/ the Constitution?

    really, this isn't that complicated......
    So basically, Hawley agreed that he had violated clauses in the contract since he didn't sue. I wonder which clause he agrees he violated.
    He that tweets much, is much mistaken

    Of course it is. That is how right-wing books get on it. Trump Jr's book required a lot of Fox purchases to get on the list. This has been going in for a very long time.https://thehill.com/opinion/white-ho...ive-bestseller You have to wonder if right wing posters are lying about it, or if they do not know better.

    I wonder if the treasonous OP sells Hawley's book over the phone too. Probably.

    We used to have thoroughbred racing at Suffolk Downs right here in Boston.

    The time that I spent reading the racing forms was essentially preparation for making my donations to Suffolk Downs.

    Compared to read a Hawley book, however, it was preparation for earning a doctorate.

    Something like "Paid for by the Committee to re-elect Josh Hawley"? That's legal, isn't it?
