      OK ladies and germs, this one is long and brutal, if you are easily disturbed by big words or difficult intellectual concepts, or if long detailed explanations quickly bore or frighten you, you should probably pass on it.

      Exposed: Obama Advisors’ Emails In Immediate Sandy Hook Aftermath Reveal Plan To Use The Tragedy: ‘Tap Peoples’ Emotions’

      According to emails obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, first reported by The Baltimore Post, advisors to then-President Barack Obama immediately strategized how to exploit the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school to push their gun control agenda. “Tap peoples [sic] emotions,” Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel advised then-Education Secretary Arne Duncan on December 16, 2012, just two days after the massacre that left 26 dead. The victims’ bodies were yet to be laid to rest.

      The two discussed how they could exploit the tragedy to bring about their anti-gun agenda. “What are your thoughts?” Duncan asked Emanuel on an email with the subject line, “CT shooting.”

      “Go for a vote this week asap before it fades,” replied Emanuel. “Tap peoples [sic] emotion. Make it simple assault weapons.”

      Around here, I’ve been told the density is about one rattler per acre. You of course have a more lush surrounding, so the density may be higher. I figure if I kill one or two per year, I’ve got all of them that are close to the house.

      ROTFLMAO… Only a Zonie could call Southern California “Lush”. Both of the rattlers I killed were about the same age. Probably around 1 year or less. Likely both from the same clutch. I did not kill the first 2 that I found in the yard, just tossed them down the hill, so these may be the same rattlesnakes or clutch mates.

      The density? Well, I suspect it is in direct proportion to the rodent density here, which frankly, is out of control. Both of these snakes were obviously not starving, in fact, they seemed quiet well fed.

      Given that Western Diamondbacks have around 25 neonates, I could quiet literally be up to my ass in rattlesnakes this year.

      Remind me again how Comey, Mueller, et al., care about the LAW…

      https://www.weaselzippers.us/385904-mueller-rejects-speedy-trial-law-to-delay-russian-collusion-trial/

      Mueller’s in a world of hurt. He went in ex parte and asked the judge to waive the statute of limitations on Manafort’s supposed crimes and the judge agreed. Which, frankly, I don’t see surviving on appeal. On what grounds do you waive the SOL? Manafort didn’t engage in illegal flight to avoid prosecution (which is the customary reason for tolling the statute) – can Mueller show there was an active FBI investigation ongoing from the time of the alleged crime (I’m thinking no).

      But where he really effed up is this charging the Russians. As the WZ article states, he thought they wouldn’t show up and he’d get a default “conviction” or at least a couple of scalps. Well, they did show up, they’re ready to go to trial and Mueller is inwardly freaking. Because my next paycheck says he hasn’t got a scintilla of admissible evidence against them and they are entitled through discovery to look at everything he’s got. And the pièce de résistance in all of this is Mueller indicting a company that didn’t even EXIST at the time of the alleged malfeasance.

      The very kindest thing that can be said about Robert Mueller, is that he is passionately incompetent. What he did in the Whitey Bulgar case actually suggests that he is not merely “passionately incompetent” but actively corrupt. He put 4 innocent men in prison for murders that he KNEW Whitey Bulgar had committed in order to protect Whitey Bulgar because Whitey Bulgar was a supposed FBI informant.

      I say supposed, because all of the evidence now available proves that Whitey was using the FBI to eliminate his organized crime competitors. And Robert Mueller whether knowingly or not, turned a blind eye to what Bulgar was doing because Bulgar provided him with a handful of minor Mafia scalps to hand on his wall.

      Even if he wasn’t on Bulgar’s payroll, that constitutes mendacious malfeasance and institutional corruption in the obstruction of justice.


    36. 39 | May 24, 2018 11:09 am

      The Democrats are starting to worry a little even here in California. As Dorian and I can tell you, some years ago they set up a primary system that doesn’t provide nominees by party – all the candidates appear in a nice long string and the top two in votes cast are the two candidates that spar in the general election. They did this to freeze out Republican candidates, and to insure in liberal areas that the only choice would be a Democrat. Essentially, a ONE-PARTY choice in an election.

      Well, THIS year they have a problem. There are a lot of Democrats vying for certain public offices – especially the top-tier state offices. Not so many Republicans. There are something like 8 Democrats running for Governor but only two Republicans – John Cox and Travis Allen (Cox has been endorsed by Trump, which I think was a mistake – Allen is the better candidate). There is actuall some concern that when these guys split all the votes 8 ways, even with the high number of Democrats (3 to 1 registration statewide) the two Republicans will be the ones on the general.

      Also there is a genuine distaste for the policies of the Democrats in Sacramento – Taxes, Sanctuary Cites, the Train to Nowhere, even oppressive gun laws. The ads for Democrats are all pushing their support for illegals, massive gun control and vilification of the NRA, forgetting that Californians OUTSIDE of the metro areas support concealed carry, and that an overwhelming majority of Californians of BOTH parties do not support continued invasion of illegals into the state, especially Black voters.


    37. 40 | May 24, 2018 11:36 am

      Why Trump is GREAT, part 1,546:

      He breaks ranks to thank police officers. Totally natural and spontaneous and genuine. All you need do is look at the body language and the conversaion. Obama would have made sure the clicking cameras got his good side (not that that schmuck would ever have done something like this)….


    38. 41 | May 24, 2018 11:41 am

      @ The Barbarian:

      Yup, so desperate that they attempted to assert that a Neo-Nazi candidate (Patrick Little) for US Senate (who was registered as a Republican) was polling at 18% in order to tar the entire California Republican Party as Nazi’s. Never mind that the California Republican Party kicked Little out of the California Republican Party or that he was actually polling at under 2%.

      More importantly, as our dear friend “The Barbarian” can likewise attest, GOP/Dem party registration does not even come close to telling the California political landscape or temperament of California.

      Yes, by registration the Democrats hold a significant advantage over the Republicans here. What those numbers however do not tell you, is that Independents hold an even larger advantage over the Democrats than the Democrats hold over Republicans.

      And here in California, Independent genuinely means Independent, there is no way of knowing what the Independent voters here are going to do, as Former Governor Grey Davis has bitterly complained on many occasions.

      So the Democrats not only changed the primary system in such a manner that they were in greater control of how the votes are illegally manipulated, they also illegally rigged a redistricting law that would have destroyed the lock on power.

      These are facts which many Californian’s not only have taken notice of, but are angry about and trying to find ways of taking retribution against the Democrat over. This is the actual impetus behind at least 2 of the political movements to split California into several smaller States.

      Californian’s are pissed off about the corrupt tactics used by the California Democrat Party, and while a large percentage of those previously mentioned Independent voters are liberal leaning libertarians, they also tend to be among the most offended by Sacramento’s corrupt behavior.

      So, yes, The Barbarian is absolutely correct, the Democrats in California have every reason to be desperate, all indications are that they have not only hoisted themselves on their own Petard, but lit the fuse themselves as well.

      The Sicilians believe the same thing. I talk to a hell of a lot of liberal and moderate Californians in my day to day and they LIKE Trump. They aren’t buying that he’s a racist. That photo of him holding the hand of the slain officer’s mother who is hugging him is tear-inducing. But the Resistance crazies will do the crazy.

      Personally I think this whole idea that Harlan was planted for “Russia” information is a BS smokescreen; they used him because his credentials yelled “RUSSIA” but I imagine he was to get as much dirt as he could on ANY subject to feed back to the FBI, and those dirtbags running the operation would either leak it to the press and/or give it to the Clinton campaign in the run-up to the general. Clinton WANTED to run against Trump – she thought he’d be the easiest one to beat. I’m sure the folks at Access Hollywood were told not to release the tape during the primaries and to hold on to it. And apparently he wasn’t getting results, because from some accounts they tried to plant someone else into the campaign as well. And watching Yates, Holder, Comey screech platitudes on Twitter exorting their colleagues NOT to cooperate, is laughable. They’re worried about something.

      As Robert Graves said in “I Claudius” …. “Let all the poisons that lurk in the mud…hatch out.”

      Brennan’s not so subtle threatening of Ryan and Turtle McConnell is likely to backfire on him in a big way. Threats like that only work until the wolves stop circling and attack. Once the attack starts, fools like Brennan discover the age old axiom, “I don’t have to out run the wolves, I just have to out run you, which is made all the easier if you suddenly discover that your Achilles tendon has been cut”.


    44. 51 | May 24, 2018 4:01 pm

      @ doriangrey:

      Considering that Holder was out of office respecting the 2016 election, his angst over this is giving me some pause. I wonder….did they do something of this nature during the 2012 elections to Mitt Romney? The FBI and DOJ rank and file are BEGGING Congress to subpoena them so they can blow the whistle on all of the high-level scheming.

      Brennan may be hip deep in this because of the Russia angle. I think he was leaking like a sieve to CNN at a time when it would have been illegal for him to do so and that he out and out lied about that Dossier to get the FISA warrant. I’m asked if this is fruit of the poisonous tree vis-a-vis any prosecutions that might have resulted. For a judge to determine, of course, by my initial reaction is Yes.

      What will the media do? Of course, we’re still waiting for the magical IG’s report. If all it says was that Comey was a very bad boy for saying Hillary should not be prosecuted, I’m going to be hopping mad.

      Hi Yenta,

      Not offered a job, it is a job they have available.

      I would enjoy it and be happy but unfortunately I cannot leave the job I am doing at the moment. It is a very complicated story but in a nutshell. Where I currently work.

      Company founded in 1974 ( redacted ) was the first company to supply electronics to the refrigeration industry. The company holds many patents related to refrigeration and engineering….. ( redacted ) equipment is used World Wide in various implementations. From single point monitoring to the largest stores built. ( redacted ) has the experience you can trust.

      Mid 1990’s it was at its peak with over 50 employees and selling about $4-5 million per year of controls designed in 1987

      Mid 2000’s down to about 15 employees. They designed a replacement for the 1987 control in 2003. It didn’t sell very well…

      I came to the company in March 2015 as a self employed contractor to do PCB assembly at $15/hr. Hey you take what you can get when you move to a new state and need work.
      Interviewed by owner and manager on the Tuesday, got a call the next day.

      You have the job! Bring in your SSN card and green card.

      I did on the Wednesday at noon. ( That day I was working for Calo, told her I would be gone about 30 minutes. Um, I let her down, never went back to her job ), spent the rest of the day being trained. Sort of.

      Thursday I discovered that the Production Supervisor ( theoretically my new boss had quit a few weeks earlier and the other PCB assembler had gone on vacation unexpectedly and they did not know if she would ever return back to work.

      And, to put the proverbial icing on the cake the manager told me he also quit and his last day was Friday!

      So, I ended up within a few days going from an assembler which is a nice routine, no stress job to being the ONLY assembler, the Production Supervisor and the Manager of a company with now only three employees.

      The other assembler did return to work two weeks later and asked me “who are you?” LOL

      I really cannot leave, if I leave the company is no more.

      So….. in a nutshell, I am fucked.

      Until the company dies a natural death. We only sell spare parts to repair the 1987 controls and the 2003 controls. As you can understand many customers instead of repairing old controls just scrap them and buy new, 2018 equipment.

      So, as Bonk would say of Charles Johnson, I am riding the decline….

      Are there any bright things in my future to look forward to?

      Yes, Lunch on Saturday with the two most important women in my life. Either Mongolian or an Indian curry!

      Zerohedge writes that Mattis says “Prepare for war”

      “It was supposed to be a joyous occasion, marking the commencement of a new and better phase in the life of nearly 1000 graduates. Instead, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told the 984 new lieutenants who are graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy to prepare for the worst: war.

      On Wednesday night, Mattis spoke at the graduation ceremony on the campus outside Colorado Springs and told the 2018 graduates they must be ready to fight and win. The Pentagon chief also told the 60th class to graduate from the academy that they must maintain U.S. military superiority in the air, and urged them to make the Air Force better.

      As the ceremony ended, the newly commissioned officers threw their white hats into the sky as the Air Force Thunderbirds roared overhead, a longstanding tradition. Of the nearly 1000 graduates, more than 400 are headed to pilot training, and 69 will be trained to operate drones.”

      Eaglesoars has a long pdf. on Chinese military superiority. It has exhaustive details on all aspects of the military & the specific weapons being produced. It is a chilling unblinkered look at what is going on outside of the borders of the US.

      Is there a way to print 3D fairly obscure but very useful products? I know nothing technical or whether the new equipment has parts that don’t get made in China. MAGA has to manufacture American equipment as you all know. Innovation will always be an American strength. Especially when the STOP dumbing down schools.

      Observed a strange thing again in a cat.

      Humans, pupil size is related to light intensity ( or drugs, medication, etc)

      Seen this several times in my cat, not light, drugs but activity.

      Is it that cats in times of high activity and needing the best imagery to kill prey they dilate their pupils to allow maximum light to enter their eyes even at the risk of eye damage?

      The rest of the time their pupils are small slits because they do not give a shit about things and are protecting their eyes for when they are really needed?

      Thursday night in Houston.

      Life is dull and boring, that is good in Houston.

      Tonight I yet again saw something strange with Natasha’s eyes.

      Where I sit and where the light is when she comes towards me because of the light shining at her here pupils are small slits.

      I can understand that…..

      But, as she is sitting there and I then get out squeaky mouse or the squirrel her pupils enlarge to be big and round as she goes into attack mode!

      Sorry I cannot post a video as I did not fully realise what was happening until today.

      My theory is the size and shape of a cat’s pupil depends on what the cat is doing, not light intensity as in humans.

      This one WILL be continued, I am interested as to why this happens.

      There should be a 6 degrees of separation phenom that happens on the internet. No matter what the discussion, sooner or later you get to CAT. lol

      Not as thrilling as in the UK in the early 1960’s

      No noise nazis and they did break the sound barrier sometimes.

      In Iowa in a restaurant several years ago there was a BANG, BANG. Everyone was scared…

      Told them it was just some poor pilot practicing that went through the sound barrier accidentally.

      The double bang is a dead giveaway. Not a bomb, but a shock wave from the nose then the wings of an aircraft.

      Around here, I’ve been told the density is about one rattler per acre. You of course have a more lush surrounding, so the density may be higher. I figure if I kill one or two per year, I’ve got all of them that are close to the house.

      ROTFLMAO… Only a Zonie could call Southern California “Lush”. Both of the rattlers I killed were about the same age. Probably around 1 year or less. Likely both from the same clutch. I did not kill the first 2 that I found in the yard, just tossed them down the hill, so these may be the same rattlesnakes or clutch mates.

      The density? Well, I suspect it is in direct proportion to the rodent density here, which frankly, is out of control. Both of these snakes were obviously not starving, in fact, they seemed quiet well fed.

      Given that Western Diamondbacks have around 25 neonates, I could quiet literally be up to my ass in rattlesnakes this year.

      Stop bitching about rattlesnakes mate!

      🙂

      The Canetoad reached the border between Queensland and New South Wales a decade ago. These toads were imported to ‘control ‘ sugarcane beetles but lost interest when they found lots of juicer stiff to eat and their numbers went exponential.

      The snacks on the State border in OZ were pretty well balanced. The second most deadly snake in the world the common brown was the prey of the Tiger snake the 5th most deadly snake in the world and with a particular bad temper. The brown has small mouth parts and couldn’t predate the toads but the tigers could and they all died because the skin of Canetoads is deadly. So with no Tiger snakes left in Queensland and the northern tip of NSW the Brown snake population went exponential as well. Now there are Brown EVERYWHERE. 1 per acre would not be a problem but they are holding ‘house parties’ in any piece of masonry or crack they can find.

      You think you have problems mate!

      HEH!

Trump is in the position of restoring RESPECT to the Presidency. The people respected Obama. They had no idea that he profaned the Office. The Press & several alphabet agencies still hold enormous power & credibility.

      Simple solution: Talk your girl Calo into taking all the money from selling her stores and move to California and start a competing business and make your 2018 upgrade to that 1987 part. I can be your first dumb employee.

      I hope someone is still around on here tonight or that this lasts until tomorrow. Any of our legal eagles out there might be able to give some good input too.

      I just had a Jury Study. It was fascinating but something is bothering the hell out of me and it really feels like the reason the jury system is going haywire.

      I kind of felt like an outlier in this study. It was in reference to Emotional Distress. I guess I started things off when he asked us what we thought about it and I said “overused in court”. He actually acknowledged I was on to something. Then as it went along I started seeing something strange. Far too many people were using the words “I feel”. Is there something wrong with me? At no point did my personal feeling come in to play. I looked at the evidence as presented and determined things based off of whether we had enough evidence or not. 5 out of 12 of us actually wanted a person whom the police found blame free in this accident to pay damages. I was baffled. Then only 3 of us did not think there was enough evidence that the wife of the victim deserved Emotional Distress damages. Everyone else “felt” she had suffered MORE THAN THE VICTIM!

      Is there something wrong with me? When did it become about feelings and not about evidence? I can already tell that if I ever do get to serve on a jury I’m going to be a problem.

      Nope, you are not wrong. Rush has been pointing this out for decades now. We’ve gone from “I think ..” or “The facts seem to point to …” to “I feel …” It’s all about feelings and raw emotion.

      Yes, there is something wrong with you. You have refused to get with the Marxist indoctrination program. This obsession with emotions over logic and reason is what the Marxist programed into our educational system to destroy America’s ability to understand that they were being subjected to the loss of liberty and freedom.

      Feeling do not require any higher cognitive capacities. They do not require logic or reasoning skills. Feeling are easy to manipulate. This is why the Marxist have stripped cognitive logical reasoning from most of America’s educational system.

      Individuals possessing higher cognitive abilities are more difficult to deceive, manipulate or misdirect. Consequently, they are more prone to taking aggressive action when they realize that they have been deceived, manipulated or misdirected.

      Lawyers like people lacking in higher cognitive abilities on their juries, as these individuals are far easier to be swayed into rendering judgements favorable to their clients through the application of emotional stimuli rather than critical examination of the facts. DA’s like them for the exact same reason.

      I do remember my father telling me that’s what made Gerry Spence incredibly effective as a lawyer. He was able to manipulate emotions and responses like a virtuoso.

      I just felt odd. I was able to empathize, but felt that it had no bearing at all on what we were presented. Evidence is evidence. If the third person involved had done anything wrong she would have received a citation. I had an accident in almost the exact same location as this one and I know what the police do in this situation. Even though I wasn’t considered wrong I was still cited for failure to yield right of way because that’s what the evidence showed. (The other driver was hit with speeding, reckless endangerment, failure to have her child properly restrained in a car seat). The car came out of my blind spot, but the fact is I was on the left and proceeded through the intersection. The fact that this person didn’t receive a single citation shows there was nothing found that showed she was in the wrong. Yet people “felt” she had some responsibility because of things they thought they saw in the scene photos.

      I also strongly felt for the wife of the victim and what she went through. But, the evidence just didn’t fit the criteria for MT rules on Emotional Distress. The others just decided that they “felt” she deserved it. We were even shown the MT standards for Emotional Distress twice. It had no impact on the majority.

      Tort law is a mother fucker. Criminally she may have done nothing that justified citation or criminal remedy, however, Tort law is considerably different. You can be completely innocent of any infraction of the law, and still be civilly liable.

      Let me give you an example. Say someone rear ends you at a stop light, your car is forced across the limit line and as a consequence is struck by a vehicle which had the legal right of way.

      Because your vehicle caused damage to another vehicle, now you are legally liable under Tort law for the damages that your vehicle caused on the third vehicle. However, because you were not at fault in any other legal sense, rather than bearing the full brunt of liability, you are assigned a percentage of liability which is directly proportional to the involvement of the other two drivers.

      x percent of liability is subtracted as a consequence of the actions of the driver who rear ended you, and x percentage of liability is subtracted based on the actions of the driver whose vehicle struck yours as a consequence of your being forced into the intersection.

      In such a case as described above, you could easily end up having less than 20 percent of liability assigned to you, resulting in you or your insurance being required to pay out 20 percent of the cost of damages to the vehicle owner of the car that struck you in the intersection. While the driver of the vehicle which rear ended you would be subject to 100 percent of your damages and as much as 80 percent of the damages to the vehicle that struck you.

      Even crazier, is that depending on the forensic evidence, the driver of the vehicle that struck you once you were forced into the intersection could be found partially responsible and subjected to a percentage of the liability as well.

      In Tort Law, it basically comes down to this, when damage liability is being determined, everyone who comes into contact with anyone else as a primary contact source is liable to some degree. Primary contact source means you are the one whose momentum or inertia resulted in you contacting someone else.

      What does not matter in Tort Law, is the source of your momentum or inertia. The fact that your momentum or inertia is the direct result of the transference of kinetic energy from someone else to you only comes into play in determining the percentage for which you are liable.

      At first glance this does not seem fair, until you consider that remove you from the equation, and the chain of events that resulted in damage to someone else stops. You may not be guilty of any infraction, but neither was the individual who suffered damage because of your vehicle. And the damage was done not by the individual who struck you, but by your vehicle.

      Like I said, Tort Law is a mother fucker.

      Yeah, this one is brutal. This is a lawsuit being brought by a pedestrian and his wife. A truck was speeding and went through an unmarked intersection. He was hit by a car with legal right of way. He lost control of the vehicle and hit the pedestrian and the pedestrians dog. Killing the dog and severely (life changing levels) injuring the pedestrian. The guy driving the pickup was charged with speeding, failure to yield right of way and a couple other charges. the car that hit him was not cited with any infractions.

      In this case as you describe it, driver a, (the truck driver) is liable for damages to vehicle and driver b, and the pedestrians, and driver b is liable for a small percentage of the damages to the pedestrian.

      The majority of the liability belongs to driver a, how much liability belongs to driver b is dependent on the forensics. For example, did the vehicle of driver b come into contact with the pedestrian or his dog AT ALL. Do the forensics show that driver b made any attempt to avoid the collision? Was driver b in the intersection on a pregnant green or yellow light? What was the speed of driver b’s vehicle?

      All of those questions would be considered determining vectors in assigning the percentage of damage liability belonging to driver b. Remember, the pedestrian would not have been injured had driver b not struck driver a’s vehicle. So driver b very likely has no criminal liability, but still has Tort liability because they were involved in an accident where a innocent third party was injured.

      The majority of the Tort liability will belong to driver a, probably 90 percent or more. But remember 10 percent of 1 million dollars in damages is still $100,000.00 dollars in liability.

      Brutal is exactly right. Driver b is going to take quiet a hit on her insurance policy through no fault of her own. This is exactly the reason “No Fault” insurance exists.

      Sorry, did not mean to imply that it was a regulated intersection, I was just pointing out that there are a lot of factors involved in determining Tort liability.

      Please bear in mind that I live in California, highest population density and most vehicles in the nation. We have documented every conceivable combination of vehicular collision vectors and quantified the physics involved to a degree that would probably surprise you.

      Accident reconstruction is BIG BUSINESS here. We literally take EVERYTHING into account when there is a vehicular accident and create simulations that show variables you would probably not even think could play a role in an accident.

Like I said, 10 percent of a 1 million dollar settlement is after all $100,000.00 dollars, that would be $100,000.00 dollars less he is on the hook for. Equally important, is that he will likely be successful in having at least a small percentage of the liability assigned to her.

      Even though I could feel for the victims, I just feel like facts should rule, not feelings. The evidence just wasn’t there yet others seemed to “feel” otherwise. It was kind of a moment where I was trying to understand if I was the logical/sane one in the room or if it was a facet of my autism showing. It was kind of a bizarre feeling. As a child I never grew used to being the smartest person in the room and it kind of messed my perceptions up. (Plus not having knowing I was on the autism spectrum stunted my awareness of why.) So, now that I’ve managed to dumb myself down to the point I’m at now I thought it would be easier.

      I don’t think we were getting the whole story. The Study was initiated by the Plaintiff side after all. It was pretty clear we were only getting one side of the story. The only interview we got to view was that of the victims wife in support of her Emotional Distress suit.

      Just to me it seemed like facts are more important than feelings. I felt pretty alone. I kept bringing up that there were a lot of things missing, that we didn’t have everything we needed. The information around the victim was pretty solid, but I just didn’t feel like there was enough given to us for the two things that they were really after opinions on.

      You are absolutely correct, the facts are EVERYTHING. However, as the old law joke/legal maxim goes, “When the facts are on your side, hammer the facts, when they are not, hammer the table”. A lawyer’s job, is to take what he is given in facts and evidence, and present the argument most favorable to his client to the jury.

      What that often means, is making every effort legal to prevent the jury from hearing or seeing any evidence or facts that are unfavorable to their client. It sounds like this is what you were subjected to.

      With little to nothing in the way of facts or evidence on his side, the plaintiff’s lawyer was reduced to relying on the emotive reasoning of the jury rather than objective cognitive logical reasoning to produce a ruling favorable to his client.

      I took a CE class called ‘We the Jury’ 5 or 6 years ago, and again a few years before that for my insurance license. It was based on an actual jury trial the business owner’s wife had been on.

      The case involved a car accident which injured a mom, her daughter (13 or 14 yrs old I think) and her son who was around 8. I remember the son’s arm was broken, the daughter had some injuries to her face that’d leave minor scarring, and I don’t remember about mom.

      Both times I took the class we gave almost the same amounts for ‘pain and suffering’. The girl we awarded something because of the scars since she was at the age that appearances kind of matter, and the son simply because broken limbs aren’t any fun.

      DOJ Declines to Prosecute FBI Agent Who Mishandled Classified Information, Gave Misleading Testimony, Provided False Information to IG

      (CNSNews.com) – The Department of Justice, according to the department’s Office of Inspector General, has declined to prosecute a now-retired FBI special agent (SA) who mishandled classified information, gave misleading testimony, had “contacts with several individuals appeared to be designed to improperly influence their prospective testimony” and provided the IG with false information.

      “Criminal prosecution of the SA was declined,” the IG reported in an investigative summary of the case.

Their target is Joel Zamel who headed the company and allegedly met with Trump or his associates during the campaign and visited the White House after Trump’s inauguration.

      Todd Herman is subbing for Rush today. He just interviewed a guy named Howard Root. Root started a medical device company. Remember when Obamacare tried to impose a tax on medical devices? Well, apparently there was a political push to make them out to be bad guys who deserved it. Because out of the blue, the DOJ started investigating Root and his company, entirely innocent entities. His lawyer attended a convention where one of the DOJ guys told him, “we need a scalp”. THAT little mis-speak destroyed their case, the judge wanted to throw the lot of them in jail. But Root got lucky – his board stood behind him, he had a $25 mil war chest. There rest of us, however, are fucked. Root wrote a book about it “Cardiac Arrest: Five Heart-Stopping Years as a CEO On the Feds’ Hit-List ”

      Five years and that was WITH the wind at his back.

      Just passing through and thinking.

      What happened today with Publix and David Hogg is going to severely piss off some Democrats. Why may you ask?

      http://www.miamiherald.com/news/politics-government/state-politics/article211940599.html

      Supermarket giant Publix said Friday it has halted all corporate political contributions. The company made the announcement moments before a planned “die-in” protest organized by David Hogg, a vocal Parkland school shooting survivor.

      Hogg and other gun violence activists were angered when news broke that the grocery store chain donated $670,000 over the last three years to Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who once boasted he was a “proud NRA sellout.” It’s the largest contribution the company has made in more than 20 years and possibly the biggest in company history.

      Now…. Instead of getting a third of the “cake” Democrats will get NO “cake”

      http://www.opensecrets.org/pacs/lookup2.php?strID=C00400705&cycle=2008

      2008 PAC Contribution Data
      Contributions from this PAC to federal candidates $200,000
      (36% to Democrats, 65% to Republicans)

      Yeah, so I picked 2008 as that year the Democrats got a reasonable percentage.

      In 2016 it was 23% to Democrats, 77% to Republicans but the total donated was $463,000

      So Mr Hogg just lost the Democrats a source of funds.

      Well played David! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      The Democrats will not care… BECAUSE… at least Little Hogwash reduced GOP Donations by 3 times as much as he cost them.

      So, is Publix going to disband their PAC? Because you can’t collect PAC money if you don’t use it for political donations

      Well hell, my brother just had an encounter with a 5 foot Rattlesnake out on the back patio. It managed to escape into the pickle-weed’s on the back hill before he could get a shovel to deal with it. He said he counted 6 buttons on its rattle. Yea, close enough encounter to actually count the buttons on the rattle.

      Now we have stationed shovels at all the doors just in case. I suspect its going to be quiet the “Interesting” summer.

      Interesting summer indeed!

      Kill the snakes, get infested with mice and rats.

      Nature has a real sense of humor.

      Last year I put glue traps in my apartment to catch mice.

      Caught lizards and mice.

      Now I am over run with cockroaches.

      Two Mexicans are stuck in the desert after crossing into the United States , wandering aimlessly and starving. They are about to just lie down and wait for death, when all of a sudden Luis says………

      “Hey Pepe, do you smell what I smell. Ees bacon, I theenk.”

      “Si, Luis, eet sure smells like bacon. ”

      With renewed hope they struggle up the next sand dune, & there, in the distance, is a tree loaded with bacon.

      There’s raw bacon, there’s fried bacon, back bacon, double smoked bacon … Every imaginable kind of cured pork.

      “Pepe, Pepe, we ees saved. Ees a bacon tree.”

      “Luis, maybe ees a meerage? We ees in the desert don’t forget.”

      “Pepe, since when deed you ever hear of a meerage that smell like bacon…ees no meerage, ees a bacon tree.”

      And with that, Luis staggers towards the tree. He gets to within 5 metres, Pepe crawling close behind, when suddenly a machine gun opens up, and Luis drops like a wet sock. Mortally wounded, he warns Pepe with his dying breath,

      “Pepe… Go back man, you was right, ees not a bacon tree!”

      “Luis, Luis MI amigo… What ees it? ”

      “Pepe.. Ees not a bacon tree. Ees

      Ees

      Ees

      Ees

      Ees a ham bush….”

      come and get my double smoked, double pepper bacon. i dare you!

      Trump Delivers Naval Academy Address, Stands In Sun To Shake Hands With Each Of The 1042 Graduates

      Attendees of the Naval Academy commencement in Annapolis, Maryland probably had no doubt who President Trump was referring to in his speech.

      Trump repeatedly knocked former President Obama as he spoke to the 1,042 graduating midshipmen along with family and guests at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium Friday morning.

      “In case you haven’t noticed, we have become a lot stronger lately. A lot. We are not going to apologize for America. We are going to stand up for America. No more apologies,” Trump told the crowd.

      “We are respected again — I can tell you that,” he said.

      “A growing number used their platforms to denigrate America’s incredible heritage, challenge America’s sovereignty and weaken America’s pride,” he said.

      Obviously zinging his predecessor’s infamous policy of apologizing and appeasement, the president spoke about the “cynics and critics who try to tear down America,” noting that the “problem grew worse” in recent years.

      @ PaladinPhil:

      speaking of elections: thinking about a lot of people scratching their heads about why Trump doesn’t just declassify all this stuff and put it out there where everybody can see it. I’m not qualified to have an opinion on whether or not that’s a good idea, but what if…what if trump does it – right before the mid-terms?

      That’s a grenade in the water.

      You have to take screen shots to get anybody to believe you. Most of the conservatives I listen to on youtube are giving people alternate sites to find them in case of sudden removal. Some go to Steemit, some to Patreon.
