Can we hold OJ accountable? No. Can we hold Cosby accountable? No. Can we hold Weinstein accountable? No. Can we hold Trump accountable? No.

Two tiered justice looks a lot like if you have money you don't have to worry about the justice system. This is indicative of a bad system.

Clyde Shelton: [in court, laughing and clapping after judge grant bail, after his charade] Thank you.
Judge Laura Burch: Excuse me?
Clyde Shelton: No, I don't think I will excuse you. You see, this is what I'm talking about. You were about to let me go. Are you kidding me? This is why we're here in the first place. You think I don't remember who you are, lady?
Judge Laura Burch: I would tread carefully, Mr. Shelton.
Clyde Shelton: Well, how carefully should I tread? Because apparently I just killed two people, and you were about to let me walk right out that door! How MISGUIDED are you? I feed you a couple of legal precedents, and there you go ...
 
I don't understand what's happening at our universities. We have big protests going on over Israel. I can kinda wrap my head around that. But where are the protests over the eminent threat to democracy that is taking place right here in the US. The fact that Trump is even a candidate should be the focus of non-stop protests.
 
This guy's wife went all teary in the interview with CBS. They have a 2 year old child and her husband may get 12 years in the slammer.

I'm thinking "one less ammo-carrying person in America", so it counts as good news. Keep him, Turks and Caicos, keep him.

Caribbean nations don't mess around; you can get five years in jail in Trinidad and Tobago for having clothing with camouflage patterns on them. There's a warning and a place to declare-and-dispose of them before going through customs in case you donned Mossy Oak and RealTree outfits on your way to Piarco International.

I've had two coworkers mistakenly bring a round or two of ammunition (no weapon) through TSA checkpoints; let's just say they missed their initial flights due to the additional questioning, rigorous inspection of all carry-on items, and extra touchy pat-downs. Lessons learned is to take a different backpack or purse to the range...

“It was a mistake, he just forgot”.

Ok, but 2 dudes had ammo now? I’m not going to say these dudes were planning anything. But stupid seems to gather in herds with this bunch.

Oh well.
When in Rome and all that.

When you arrive and depart on private jets, these places barely have any screening at all. The most difficult place I've seen to arrive privately is the US, especially if you're coming from anywhere south, and that makes sense because Mexico, Central America, and the islands basically don't care.

I'm assuming the protestors can make their voice heard on Trump at the ballot box, to a degree that's the mechanism for righting that wrong. With Israel and Gaza, what other mechanisms are there?

The protesters are either going to force Biden to make a move that the center left hates OR will get Trump elected.

…since it appears this could be grounds for impeachment, making it very FO.

The part that stands out to me is the part where it says that Brennan refuses to hire Harvard grads just because the faculty critiqued the Supreme Court. That's whack on multiple levels, man. What if you're hypothetically a student who doesn't really have much antipathy for the Supreme Court? Are you really supposed to be held accountable for what you school's professors said? And even if you gave such critiques yourself, what's wrong with that? They're the Supreme Court, not a pantheon of gods.

I think this Brennan guy just has thin skin. Skill issue!

Not happy that we're starting to get license-plate reading cameras located on fixed poles in some parking lots of my town.

But the insulting part is the brazen name of the company: Flock Safety. So, we're just damned sheep now?

Antisemitism doesn't actually mean antisemitism to the GOP. It's just a cudgel they are using to quash all criticism of Israel. By doing so, they deprive it of any meaning. Still, it's telling that when confronted with actual antisemitism, they don't speak up.

Because that would mean they'd have to stand up to their radical base and they are afraid to do so.

We shouldn't really be surprised, since they turn a blind eye to pedophiles and election fraudsters in their own party while going all out to accuse liberals of these crimes. Gaslight, obstruct, project.

I know Democrats have no love for Moscow Marge and ousting Johnson would do nothing to keep the US government functioning as a legislative assembly but it's not like he's going to do them many favours in return considering his anti-Biden border rhetoric.

Had they been more ruthless perhaps they could've approached him with some kind of quid pro quo deal in exchange for helping to save his skin.

I guess he did pass the Ukraine aid deal though so at least he seems to be interested in doing his job.

TMU, that was the deal made. He brings forth & helps pass the Ukraine aid deal, they'll stick behind him knowing Marjorie wanted to oust him.
