I'm looking forward to Manafort's sentencing hearings. He had a brilliant chance to significantly reduce his sentences, and he fucked it up.

Re: Pompeo says ISIS bride born in NJ is not US citizen

Thank you all for your questions/answers. I've been wondering about the legalities of this case.

Question. If a citizen, could Muthana be refused re-entry to the US by simply placing her on the "do not fly list"? Or would her citizenship require that she be allowed back into the US?

Re: Issues 2020: College Affordability

Excellent point. Textbooks were pretty pricey when I was in college (especially in grad school), but my daughter's next-semester course for her MBA uses a textbook that costs - brace yourself - $600. She's found one for $200 used. As far as the financial aid paperwork, a lot of this is brought on b...

Re: North Carolina CD 9

I wonder if, after all that came out at the hearing, Harris might be one of the folks facing charges :think: Based on what I read on Twitter yesterday, I'm fairly certain that there is already a criminal investigation into McCrae Dowless' actions. I wonder if Harris will face a criminal investigati...

Re: North Carolina CD 9

Maybe I'm misremembering, but didn't Harris take out the incumbent in the primary? Has he (the incumbent) had anything to say about problems with the primary election? If he's interested, can the NC GOP just nominate him and skip the primary? NC recently changed election law, and now requires a pri...

I've been following the hearing pretty closely these past few days. WOW! The evidence is damning for McCrea Dowless and, imo, Mark Harris. John Harris' testimony contradicted his father's denials quite blatantly. At 9pm last night, Mark Harris finally submitted evidence that had been subpoenaed. Jus...
