a thread I can catch up on ...

Regarding the SCOTUS on civel forfeiture.

The main SCOTUS case supporting civil forfeiture is Bennis v. Michigan, 517 U.S. 1163 (1996). Voting in the majority were Rehnquist, O'Connor, Scalia, Thomas, and Ginsburg, Dissenting were Stevens, Souter, Breyer, and Kennedy. Obviously a close decision. Whether or not Thomas would support the original decison, he has recently strongly questioned whether civil forfeiture, as now used, satisfies due process. That suggests to me that the SCOTUS may well revisit the issue, and at a minimum, greatly restrict its use.

Here's some good news on the home front!

(ADN) Alaska Dispatch News sued by GCI after presses outstay lease

Our Lefty local rag has not been paying it's bills so it's finally being sued and a Court Date has been set.

The state’s largest newspaper is facing a lawsuit from the owners of its former building, who claim that the paper has left its printing presses there more than 18 months longer than originally agreed and refused to pay higher rent charges agreed to in a contract...The latest filing comes as the Alaska Dispatch News already faces two existing lawsuits over unpaid bills,

I'm smiling, especially because when I read comments in the ADN's version of the story it appears they my be bleeding money:)

GUS

Daddy, can you imagine the STENCH of those "presses".

Stink-a-saurus-REX.

daddy

GUS,

I'd love to see the ADN go out of business. I believe them to be the most effective propaganda organ for Lisa Murkowski in the state. The owner is DC socialite billionairess Alice Nicole Rubinstein, big friend of the Obama's.

This opposition web site lists a bit of the problems she appears to be facing, even prior to the new Law Suit I mentioned above.

Her floatplane is totalled. Her float plane license surrendered. Her newspaper is an Alaska-sized headache that to all outward appearances is bleeding cash.

The summer of 2017 will be about how to satisfy contractors and landlords, whether she has to pay her former business partner, and whether she can keep Alaska’s largest newspaper running during one of the worst economic downturns in Alaska history.

There is irony in the fact that the anti-growth, anti-industry policies her newspaper promotes are contributing to its economic headwinds. We imagine that is probably lost on her.

daddy

Last name should be Alice Rogoff Rubinstein. Damn Wiki@#$%^

daddy

Speaking of names, "The Susitna," our $80 Million Ice-Breaking Ferryboat, which the Philippine Navy took possession of for the bargain basement price of only $1.75 Million, has been renamed. It is now The M/V "Amazing Grace"

I hope it finally comes in useful for somebody. Mabuhay!

Ever try to get off of Facebook? We'll it's not easy even if you know the drill.

When you get to the last page and click deactivate, you have to provide them with a reason. Ah, here's the problem. Click on any one of the categories listed, and the page locks or freezes - whatever.

I finally had to click on "Other", and in the box provided wrote, "Let me out of this damn place!"

Well, they finally let me deactivate. I'll be darned if I'm ever going back to try and close the account. I might never get out. Zucker-jerk must be losing people or they wouldn't make the process so irritating.

Good riddance!😠

Assuming your activities on FB have been judicious, appropriately fake and so on, just stop posting. "Cutting the cord" is in effect, leaving a trail.

GUS

My dear Barbara. You can check out any time you like, BUT, you can never leave!!!

Welcome to the HOTEL FACEBOOK!

Your friend.

daddy

Good work, Barbara.

Momma said "No FaceBook in our household!" and I'm glad she did.

Barbara

cboldt and GUS,

It wasn't that I didn't want to leave a trail. I just didn't want to offend anyone anymore because I like something that they don't like.

I support President Trump and wanted to at least click on "like" when he said or did something that is good for the country. I limited the people that these posts went to. But Facebook sends it to everyone.

Some people don't like to see political comments or even "likes". I can understand that. I wouldn't want to receive similar things about Obamas or the Clintons.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I just felt that the site was trying to stir up trouble to get more clicks. And I felt restricted because of it. Zuckerberg and his friends are rich enough already.

daddy

Bloomberg News is trying to figure out if there's a move afoot to get Rick Perry to leave the Energy Dept and move to DHS. Then offer the Energy job to West Virginia's Dino, Senator Manchen, and then have the newly converted Repub Governor of that State appoint a Repub.

Sounds Rube Goldbergian to me, but here's the link: Manchin Emerges as Possible Pick for Energy Department

Barbara

Thanks, daddy. I agree with momma.

daddy

Don Surber weighs in on Energy Secretary Joe Manchen and the new "Republican" Governor of West Virginia, Jim Justice: Trump may get a 53rd Republican senator

I would not trust Justice or Manchin with their own money.

GUS

Daddy, Manchen is a POLITICAL ass-wipe. He is McCain-esque. Zero PRINCIPLES, lots'o'ego.
Pathetic ass-wipe.
Daddy, if WE, CANNOT even trust..."THAT'S NOT WHO WE ARE" Paulie Ryan, THEN, WHO CAN WE TRUST.
I was once a DEMOCRAT. I was WRONG. I've NEVER CALLED OR CONSIDERED MYSELF a Republican because...ONCE BITTEN. The GOP is absolute FUCKING GARBAGE. No PRINCIPLES at ALL.
If REPUBLICANS have PRINCIPLES....then WHO IS BUCKING THE McCAKEHOLE/RYAN TREND?????
If you FUCKING REPUBLICANS....CANNOT, NOR WILL NOT LEAD..........retire and collect youf FILTH PENSIONS, and WRITE YOUR WORTHLESS BOOKS, and, LOBBY, you PATHETIC WORTHLESS, COWARDLY ASS-WIPES.
"That's not WHO WE ARE!!!" PAUL PUSSY RYAN.

Good Saturday Morning!

When you leave Facebook, your data stays.
Getting them to discard your data is near impossible unless you are a minor. This is because you signed away your privacy rights when you created your account.

If Repubs were interested in helping the People against nasty SJW corporations they could (for example) use Liz Warren's federal consumer bureaucracy to go on the attack against FB till FB agrees to an opt-out policy.

Whenever I see suspended play on a Friday I always look for the guys who've played 16 or 17 holes that day and are miles over the cut line. How much does that suck to have to come back and finish the next day?

 narciso.

A neighbor who is under great strain, we met him during the storm, his daughter is on his deathbed from stage 4 cancer, his mother passed away last year, his other son npt that long ago.
He needs urgent prayers his name is John.

Marlene

narciso,prayers for your neighbor. We received the news that my son-in-law's best friend died this week after his battle with cancer. Heartbreaking.

daddy

Maybe the US should have a "Right to be Forgotten" law as in Europe. The politico pushing it should be, hmm, what's his name again... (It's working!)
