Republicans Behaving Badly

This does not end his problems. Taking bribes as "loans" rather than "gifts" is just as illegal, although the value of the loan/bribe is somewhat less. That would go more to sentencing than to whether he committed a crime.

There's a very simple solution to this marijuana smuggling problem. We should grow it here, and it should be of a high enough quality that we become a net exporter of it rather than an importer.

The motion to dismiss is a bit long winded. And doesn't do as good a job as I would have hoped had I been the magistrate in demonstrating that he is a judicial officer with immunity.

It won't surprise me to hear the term "carpetbagger" used a few times prior to the August 2014 primary election.Among less pleasant terms. I also expect the "bored housewife" thing to emerge again.

Hijack this thread

I once played "DREAN" on a triple word score in a game. I had basically made up the word. I doubt it is in the official dictionary, but we'd agreed on the Oxford English Dictionary.I insisted it was a real word, and got challenged. Turns out it's in there.

It is my opinion, however, that Manning is a traitor to this country, whether he can be convicted of treason or not. My opinion is not going to change.Mine might. "My opinion is not going to change" is the sort of thing a fanatic says.

Let me speak seriously for a moment.I'm not as confident as some of Snowden's defenders are in the wisdom of his decisions, choices and friends. In fact, I think Snowden is a dunce and possibly a dupe of Glenn Greenwald.I also don't think Snowden is a whistleblower in any sense of the word. He lied ...

TraitorNounA person who betrays a friend, country, principle, etc.Take it up with the dictionary writers.When talking about someone in prison being prosecuted for a crime, an accusation of treason has a very specific meaning.

Bradley Manning willfully signed his rights away to obey the UCMJ when he enlisted. Different case, different legal system, etc.Utter bullshit, and frankly an insult to the UCMJ itself, which actually has in many respects due process protections superior to those in civilian courts.

That still doesn't mean he's not a traitor. He is.Which displays a near-total ignorance of what the word "traitor" even means.

Ohio law, it would appear, applies full and credit with respect to marriages fairly strictly.
