Re: WTF, Trump? Federal judgeship .. Ghost hunter?

His biggest disqualifying feature isn't him being accused of being a child predator, its that he's 72 years old and won't live another 45 years. Yeah, but his biggest qualifying feature is such a appointment would please supporters, and that only has to last 3 years. He doesn't even need to live th...

Re: Judges Behaving Badly

If anyone nominated me or asked me to interview for a job I wasn't qualified for, I would politely turn it down. I really can't wrap my head around why this guy would even put himself through a confirmation hearing. Did he think nobody would ask questions? Maybe it's a case of not knowing that he d...

Re: Tax Reform/Tax Cuts

As a well paid pastor with family of several kids he is likely to make a good savings (assuming that IRS implements the law as in design). His church was likely already tay exempt. Now if only this pastor would have checked with his lesser b&w sheeple, he may discover that those may have a bleaker ...

Re: Alabama US Senate: Special Election December 12, 2017 - (D) Win

I think it's just a feeble attempt to save face. He was once a powerful man. Now he's not. On the other hand I would argue that now he is a bigger deal than he ever was, with much greater name recognition on the national scale and far more supporters then he had before. He has lost his official pow...

Re: Net Neutrality

Dropping net neutrality seems a way to enable ISPs to go the way of medivieal road robbery. The originating website must pay each and every potential network on the way to the customer a small share of its revenue, or else... The networks will have to work out how to charge for this potential incom...

Re: Bundy Ranch Trial #2--The Big One: Cliven, Ammon, cRyan, Ryan Payne, Pete Santilli

I suspect you're right. What makes this all the more humourous is that the Bundys and their supporters claim that the government is this huge, scary entity that is out to get them - while at the same time believing the government is too incompetent to kill a handful of people, despite being given m...

Alright, I notice the document mentions Dan Love had a "kill book."

An interesting theory I've never heard before. Based on the one-sentence synopsis, one could infer that Japan, Korea and China are not patriarchies. But I'm not sure that's the case. Look at issues around devaluing daughters via female infanticide, sex-selective abortion, and simply stopping having...

Pathetic guy whom the world has passed by.
I am wondering if this is an attempt to position himself for something else. Lecture circuit? Another run? Trump giving him a federal judgeship?

It kinda sounds like he is trying to fit his defeat into some narrative for a purpose, but not sure what.
