There is a path from the wilderness... We keep hearing it's the Democrat's fault, that the filibuster prevents the Senate from getting to 60 votes. Oh, my. The analysis is wrong, just wrong. Here is the simple path to end the shutdown: a veto override. It's not that hard. In fact it becomes a distinct … Continue reading 60 Votes? Or is it 67 and 290?
In a criminal trial, the burden of truth, of proof is on the prosecution. They must show, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the accused is guilty of the crime. The defense has no need to prove their client didn't do it, only that there isn't sufficient evidence to convict. It's why a jury returns one … Continue reading The Burden of Proof
I believe we were attacked today. We've heard for years that our nation's electrical grid is vulnerable. Would it be worse if the vector was natural gas? Taking out electricity shuts things off. Doing the same with gas blows things up. The initial "analysis" is that a switch failed, there was a pressure back up, … Continue reading We Were Attacked Today
I stand with the Boston Globe and all that heeded their call to fight back, to rally against #fakenews. I agree with Dan Rather and Elliot Kirschner and their stand on effective journalism. The two primary lines of defense of freedom and against tyranny are a free press and the right to trial by jury. … Continue reading I Support a Free Press
OK. The heading is getting too long. I'm waiting for the swamp to drain. Frankly, disgusted. A day after Trump's fixer pleaded guilty and his campaign manager was convicted I'm looking for some truth. #CNN is reveling in a, well, look, we were right. So I looked at #foxnews. I wondered what they had to … Continue reading Hypocrisy, Lies, FoxNews, Trump….
You've got to love the hypocrisy of Saudi Arabia. #KSA is upset that Canada is "interfering" in internal Saudi affairs by protesting the arrest of a human rights activist. Apparently "interfering" doesn't apply when it goes the other way. #KSA is financing and backing the civil war in Yemen. And today? They lead an air … Continue reading Hypocrisy
I've been on FB since 2008. I'm about to delete my account. I see no reason to stay there. It's mostly morons and trolls arguing, engaging, keeping people away from more important things. Does it matter what happened between Hillary and Bernie? Or that Bernie could have won v. Trump? Useless energy for a moronic … Continue reading Facebook
I'll always like this... "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." - Theodore Geisel (Dr. Suess) Resist
I look at history. And yeah, sometimes it repeats itself. What happened with the Nazis? A whole lot of people sat and waited, said it can't be true, can't be this bad, and? I think it was gas in their future. So.... Should we be buying guns and getting ready? Yes, I believe there is … Continue reading Guns
@RealDonaldTrump wants to know what sort of lawyer records conversations with a client. Um, dumbass, apparently the kind of lawyer you hire. Are you too dumb to get that? You hired him. You trusted him to payoff people to cover-up your less than ethical and, frankly, disgusting actions. The type of lawyer who does this … Continue reading An Answer
