So, it was a slow day, or did they cut the meeting short to torture a Mexican on the South Lawn?
Of course not!

Re: Rape is the Easiest Crime to Get Away With

:shock: Those facts and stats are disturbing! Is it any wonder why victims are often reluctant to report? If you experience a trauma like rape, and then law enforcement challenges your allegations and dismisses them, you are victimized all over again. :cry: Add to that the fact that an estimated 60...

How discouraging Sugar.
Unfortunately, brick and morter stores feel the same way. Their competition is coming not only from makers themselves, but from on-line sales, Amazon and cheap imports.

Re: Fogbow Arts and Crafts Club

What would you have to charge for a handmade item if you were to get $15/hour plus the cost of materials? I can’t imagine trying to earn a living by knitting or crocheting. Several of our craftsmen are knitters or crocheters full-time and they get more orders than they can take for $100-$200 baby s...

Re: Cops Behaving Badly

Stop signs are not suggestions, even for police (without active lights or siren). Actually, even with lights and sirens they are bound by the rules of the road with some narrow exceptions. Watch closely the next time you see a fire truck, police car or ambulance go through a red light. I don't know...

The framerate of the video is kind of low but I estimate the red honda civics speed at 46 mph. Cop in the silver jeep patriot was going 16 mph. Residential speed limit in Michigan is 25.
And running a stop sign is illegal in every state.

Is it that other people acquired them for him? Does that make him a trafficker? (Nor am I trying to got...

Since I'm not at all clear on the nuances myself, I sympathize (and am still not sure which of the acts Epstein is accused of in the current case actually fall under sex trafficking.) Sex trafficking just means you moved girls from one state to another in order to have sex with them. It doesn’t in ...

It feels as if nobody read the Mueller report. That's a shame, because it's an important document, depicting possible crimes by a sitting US president. But not reading it makes sense. As a narrative, the document is a disaster. And at 448 pages, it's too long to grind through. For long stretches, i...
