    US Politics: It’s Not A Crime If Your Feelings Got Hurt

    Good grief, did I break the thread?

    US Politics: It’s Not A Crime If Your Feelings Got Hurt

    You know what's really funny? She pretty well walked back all the comments she made under oath. She's not under oath anymore.

    By the way, the Russians have come out and stated, once again, that they did not interfere in the US election. You can all rest easy now. I'm sure your president will also come out and explain, once again, that Putin assured him it wasn't true.

    Actually, reporters should start asking her, whenever she gives a response, if her answer is true or if she's lying.

    It's Alive!!!: Zombie Pigs Edition

    Hey, I have often said I expected that I would be dead before the worst effects of climate change were felt, but now I figure I will actually live long enough to see really nasty stuff happen. Climate change is happening much, much faster than expected.

    It's Alive!!!: Zombie Pigs Edition

    Between pigs with re-activated brains and apes given brain cell implants and developing improved skills, the future envisaged in science fiction is unfolding. Not to worry, though, climate change will wipe out the planet before you need to worry about it.

    Further to my opinions about the US, I see the NY Yankees have stopped using Kate Smith’s recording of God Bless America after finding out about the racist songs she also recorded, including one about why black children were born - somebody has to pick cotton. Lovely.

    You know, that would make sense if during the president’s time in office limitation periods were suspended, but they aren’t, are they?

    US Politics: It’s Not A Crime If Your Feelings Got Hurt

    Nope. The case was about presidents, not the hoi poloi. You are casting doubt in my mind now, it might be in the current regulations and the lawyers were saying they meant no grand jury material without impeachment. And I grew up believing the US was the greatest shining light of democracy in the world, and constantly bragged about being the greatest light of democracy in the world, and that every country in the world should follow US example. As Nordic countries brought in enlightened laws, you people laughed at how ludicrous those laws were. Nothing matches the US, rah, rah, rah! Instead there is corruption at the community level against huge portions of your population, corruption at state levels, corruption at the highest levels. I honestly thought things were getting better and better, but they just get worse and worse. And because the US has always held itself out as the shining star, the reality of the lie makes the US the most corrupt.

    I can’t remember the name of the case, but lawyers on CNN have talked about repeatedly. Perhaps a US lawyer can comment. What I do want to say, though, you people have the most fucking corrupt government in the whole fucking world. Maybe you don’t torture people the way tin-pot governments do, you just bomb the shit out of their countries, but ounce for ounce, pound for pound, your government is fucking rotten.

    As I understand it, there has been a court decision somewhere along the way that said Congress doesn’t get to see grand jury testimony unless there’s an impeachment going on.

    The Magicians Season 4+ [SHOW SPOILER - No Book Spoilers]

    Yes, I was very disappointed as well. It’s seems like everybody has to do a GoT and kill someone off. There was a good interview with the show writers that popped up on my Google page, explaining why they did what they did, and saying the author was enthusiastic about the idea. But I am horribly disappointed.
  13. Also from Quora, an artice using US governments statistics that show the top 1% made at least $465,000 in 2017. They may or may not have $10 M in assets.
  14. Bernie had a bump up for two years because he had a best-seller. That book isn’t going to be a best-seller going forward, so he won’t be a 1%er earnings-wise anymore and he’s not a 1%er in net worth terms, since he doesn’t have $10 M in assets.

    Acrophobia 35A: Death Comes As The End, Voting Rnd 7

    Who wants me to start the next round? I think rocksniffer had to go out of town, which is why he didn’t vote, so I don’t think he’ll be playing.
