Re: If you want to discuss Confederate Flags with me

This ought to piss off the Klan in Mississippi. Black judge removes Mississippi flag with Confederate emblem from court Good for him. Interesting. Judges have a lot of leeway in their courts. I didn't know he could do this, but apparently he did. There are suggestions that the Alabama, Arkansas and...

Re: Observations on Trump Administration

It is not clear if a president can pardon himself. Many legal scholars think this would not be a valid pardon, especially if he were impeached. It is not clear if a president can pardon the crimes that led to impeachment. All we know is impeachment is beyond the boundaries of pardons. Ford's pardon ...

Re: O.J. Paroled

He changed his residence to Florida, I believe, because Florida has quite a few protections against creditors, such as the Goldmans. House cannot be touched, nor do I think the pension can be touched. When very rich people are trying to secure assets, they often move to Florida and buy expensive pro...

O.J. Paroled

It makes no difference legally, in this parole hearing, whether or not O.J. Simpson killed his wife or not. I honestly don't know if he killed his wife or not. Given that there was a civil award, but lost a criminal trial, I can only say the probability that he killed his wife is over 50% but less t...

Re: They admit Russia meddled

You are assuming that there is "damaging stuff." That for now is an unknown. So should it be known? Or will you continue to defend Trump if he attempts to stop the investigation? Well, there has to be SOME reason why Trump is the only President or presidential candidate for over 40 years ...

Re: They admit Russia meddled

Getting interesting. Not like the old special prosecutors who had a lot more leeway. I don't know how intelligent Trump's choices are. I think he refused to reveal his taxes because the stuff in his taxes was far more damaging than the political fallout from not releasing his taxes. I don't know if ...

Re: The Giant Wagstaff CD Listening Project Thread

Ah, like the old argument about modern art "my kid could paint that", while in fact the big name avant garde artists were quite capable of painting the old style but wanted to do something more interesting. Frank Zappa proved in his fist album with "Wowie Zowie" that he could wri...

Re: The Giant Wagstaff CD Listening Project Thread

Rants about taxing the f*** out of the Church didn't make for good art, I must say. Gonna have to agree to disagree here. This is some of my favorite Zappa ever. We can delve into it further in 2037 when I finally reach him in this project. OK, until then we will agree to disagree, as long as you a...

Re: The Giant Wagstaff CD Listening Project Thread

The good thing about Zappa is he seemed to be a bit pissed off at the world all the time. On his first album, he had songs like "You're Probably Wondering Why I'm Here" that insults the audience at whatever concert he's performing. Lots of stuff on that album about "no commercial pote...

Re: Minneapolis cops

Now the story is the cops were startled by a loud noise. Of course! Everyone knows the correct response to hearing a loud noise is to pull out your gun and fire as many bullets as possible into unarmed civilians. From what I can tell, Officer Mohammed Noor had a history of being an exceptionally vio...

Re: Minneapolis cops

True that. I grew up in a small southern city. When the cops just beat up blacks, nobody really cared. Working class whites, they cared a little. When they started beating up middle class and professional whites, people noticed. I said a long time ago that police brutality wasn't just a white-on-bla...
