Re: “Griffen asks for broadcast of judicial discipline proceeding

It is unfortunate, Justsome guy, that redrawing judicial districts to insure that black judges would be elected was necessary, but it was necessary because of the racism that existed at the time, and still does, in those parts of the state where they exist. At least, depending on the draw, black defendants can know that there are some judges who are not biased against them because of their race.

Re: “Study: Democrats less inclined to cheat on spouses

I have to agree with Steven E. about Bernie over Hillary. I have been a Democrat all of my life, and have never voted for a Republican for national office, although I have supported a few friends who ran as Republicans for local positions. I was sickened when the Democratic Party apparatus stole the election from Bernie, and I said I was going to stop calling myself a Democrat. However, I, of course voted for Hillary, even though I wanted the nominee to be Joe Biden, but he felt the need to drop out. The Democratic Party is fixated on the Clintons, even though their day in the sun was 26 years ago. The Party still holds them up as icons, which is probably undeserved, and has throttled the new talent in the party. Ever since she was first lady in Arkansas, I have always wondered just how much Hillary really cared about people. I think Bill really did. My hopes for the future are with Joe Biden, although he is getting pretty old, Elizabeth Warren, or Corey Booker. Joe Biden could have won Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Ohio, because he had empathy with the working people of those states, something that Hillary did not have.

As far as the unfaithfulness, which this thread is all about, men are men and women are women, and who is to pass judgment on extra-marital affairs. If you have not walked in the shoes of the people involved, you should not pass judgment. In the sexual context, if you have not been in the bedroom with the people involved, you should not not pass judgment.

It's not because he's black, it's because they think he's a Democrat. Duh.

Thanks to GFTR, and perplexed for their responses to Steven E. The Doc Holliday bit by GFTR reveals that he and I are from the same generation. I'm 84, GFTR. How about you?

Re: “TGIF and the news roundup

Unless something changes in these elections and 2020 then America is fucked. We will have gone down so far the shithole then I'm afraid that recovery is a long way off. Don't think our country can stand any more of the 50% + 1 votes much longer. Need a definite statement.

I hope that I am wrong. Please.

"Who said "yawn" Tsalle? "

Lots of hem-hawing & throat-clearing re the indicted (& those yet indicted).

Rapid calls for "Impeachment!" after Griffen's protest. Considerably less alacrity when whitey transgresses.

Re: “TGIF and the news roundup

Diogenes, Diogenes, come out of your jar, wherever you are! I've found an honest person. Will a woman do?

Actually, I'm not being sarcastic here. This Branson resident gets right to the point. No useless thoughts and prayers after everybody's already dead.

'Trisha Ayers was among the mourners who stopped to pay their respects at a parked car that was covered with flowers because it was believed to belong to a dead tourist.

Ayers said she understood how the boat got caught on the lake because the weather on Thursday evening changed in 10 minutes from sunshine to gale-force winds that bent traffic signs.

"I hope it won't tarnish Branson," she said with tears in her eyes. "About 80 percent of our income comes from tourists. We love them."'

Really though. Aren't we all totally helpless in the wake of such tragedy? All we can do is say that we're sorry it happened. How many Syrian refugees have drowned in the Mediterranean in the last few years? All is tragedy.

(Sorry, I lost the link to the above story. It came from an ABC link out of Missouri [I think] another ABC/7.)

Can't remember which wife it was that Newtie left to fall into the arms of Callista.

Poor ol' Bob Livingston lasted about 5 days or so as House Speaker.

Re: “TGIF and the news roundup

"A conservative columnist for The Washington Post on Friday wrote that the current political climate makes him miss former President Obama, saying he would take the Democrat back in a nanosecond.

Max Boot was a foreign policy adviser in both of the Republican presidential campaigns against Obama in 2008 and 2012.

Despite his criticisms of the former commander in chief, Boot wrote that Obamas presidency now appears to be a lost golden age when reason and morality reigned.

Boot wrote that he gained a new perspective on the Obama administration after watching him deliver a speech in South Africa on the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandelas birth.

I was moved nearly to tears by his eloquent defense of a liberal world order that President Trump appears bent on destroying, Book wrote.
Obama appeared to offer wide-ranging criticism of Trump in the Tuesday speech, saying those in power seek to undermine every institution or norm that gives democracy meaning."

Boot said Obamas speech was not full of self-praise or name-calling like many from Trump.

Obama has a far better claim than Trump to being a very stable genius, but he didnt call himself one, Boot wrote. The sentences were complete and sonorous and probably written by the speaker himself.

Imagine Trump writing anything longer than a tweet and even those are full of mistakes, he added."

Re: “TGIF and the news roundup

Trump's military parade scheduled for November 10 will reportedly cost $12 million--about the same cost as the canceled military exercise with South Korea.

Trump's military parade expected to cost nearly as much as 'tremendously expensive' canceled war games
https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/18/politics/tr…

5000-7000 military members will march in the parade which will include military aircraft, ground vehicles and horses. "ABC reports that about 50 Pentagon staffers are currently involved in planning the event, but added that the number is expected to grow to as many as 3,000 by the week of the parade".

Thousands of service members to participate in Trump's military parade: report
http://thehill.com/policy/defense/398109-t…

What a waste of money and personnel! Now that Putin is coming to the White House this fall, who wants to bet Putin will l be here at the time of the parade so Trump can show off to his boss?

Re: “17 dead in duck boat sinking in Table Rock Lake storm

I viewed several of the videos. The sorry sonovabitch driving the boat could have saved his life and those he murdered if he just beached the damn boat. He should also have throttled back because the craft was front heavy coming over the waves. He should also not have gone head on into them. Hopefully the investigation will assign blame and there will be prosecution. From what I viewed, the person entrusted with 30 souls was not adequately trained to be operating the duck boat and innocents paid the price for someone's greed.

Well, the shotgun is for Up Close, and I do have a rifle that is good out to about 800yrds.

As far as length, Remington and Mossberg found the loophole, so yeah, you can own a shorty shotgun that has a 20 round magazine.
