Willowed...

That there should be no "gun free zones" anywhere, which clearly endanger people's chances of being a victim of a mass shooter, like UNCC's campus.

anonamom, my take on this.

Every Person has a RIGHT TO LIFE and therefore a RIGHT AND A DUTY TO PROTECT THAT LIFE. Everywhere a person is or travels to or thru.

A "magic sign" or "magic piece of paper" will not stop Mr. Bullet or Ms. Switchblade or Uncle Baseball Bat. An armed person is not guaranteed that they can stop the threat to themselves or others, only that they have A FIGHTING CHANCE TO SURVIVE.

Police have no duty to provide protection for any person, even if a person has a personal protection or restraining order. See Castle Rock v Gonzales, NYT Article

Police do no have to respond to 911 calls. See Warren v DC, GOA Post

I HOPE I HAVE ENOUGH ALL CAPS TO SATISFY GUS. Also, I believe I have sourced my suppositions properly enough for Tom R.

jimmyk

From this morning on the last thread: Here are Julie Kelly's and Liz Shield's questions for Mueller again, btw. Anyone think Mueller would risk having to answer them in public?

Does anyone think the low testosterone* Republicans will actually ask those questions?

*so my post is on topic

I decided not to make it any worse and shut off my cable box in my office. I use my 40" TV for a monitor for multiple systems, so cannot take it out but was good and ready to (although this Barr Hearing on this hill could drive one to drink).

Yeah, I might be having a migraine... Shouting at the TV any louder does not make them listen better...

Wish me luck, off to an interview for different job within same company and for the same client.

You know that guy in your 'hood when you were a kid who'd get a hardon in his sweats and giggle and point at it?

The guy who showed you a photo of his sister in her cheerleading outfit that he kept in his wallet, and then leered and said, "Cool, huh? My girlfriend."

That guy is Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.)

Glad to see Barr shove that red hot poker up Blummie's ass.

"Josh Hawley (R-MO) gets right to the heart of the matter."

Ya got that right! I'm telling you, 90% of the questioners look like fools.

henry

So Hirono attacks Barr.

Jane

If I was Corey Booker, I'd be mad that bitch sat in his seat. I wonder if they have some dirt on her, since she is out of her mind on this.

Just got a text about how terrible the Hawaiian gal is.

anonamom

Whoa--is Senator Mazie unhinged!
Sounds like she only hates Trump slightly more than she hates Barr.
Good for Lindsey for calling out her slander.

Threadkiller

Fox is preparing to zoom in on the next Dem questioner. Never highlighting the Republicans.

Beasts of England

'Are these the best and the brightest lawyers?' (referring to the 18 angry democrats)

Barr: 'Not necessarily.' :::huge smirk:::

Boom!! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Threadkiller

Spartacus is up. Fox has zoomed in on him.

matt - deplore me if you must

And the sun sets in the West, H. They can't help but make utter fools of themselves. It's in their DNA. And the media twist it all into nice logic free pretzels.

The Mueller letter to me is a bit mysterious. He said "The summary letter sent by the Department to Congress and released to the public on the afternoon of March 24 did fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office's work and conclusions"

Who the hell is this guy? Hemingway?

He wrote a report based upon the evidence for his boss.

That it was prepared by a bunch of Democrat activists might be pointed out to him. Prosecutors think the worst of the people they are investigating anyway. Cross that with clearly partisan political affiliations and the report really isn't worth the paper it is printed on. There is no call for his meddling.

anonamom

It is insane that they are questioning Barr on his (and RR's) not finding POTUS committed obstruction, when Mueller and his band of merry men didn't either, after being immersed in it for two years.

jimmyk

I like the fact that Barr is rather defiant and disdainful of the Dem idiots. Is there still a live feed? The link I have from Reuters doesn't seem to be live.

Threadkiller

Im watching fox news on youtube, Jimmy.

They still don't put the camera on the Republican questioners.

fdcol63 ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

So does Barr get to respond to any of these grandstanding Dem bloviators?

anonamom

I'd love to have a read out on Barr's BP and heart rate, because he appears to be completely unruffled by these untalented performance artists.

Threadkiller

Fox is preparing to zoom in on Kabalah instead of focusing on Tillis who is doing a damn fine job.

@JohnKasich

The letter sent by Special Counsel Mueller to A.G. Barr is deeply concerning & the American people deserve to hear the truth. Mr. Mueller should testify publicly before Congress and I continue to believe that the full report should be made available to the Congress & the public.

Ok, I found this feed on MarketWatch:

anonamom

Tillis doing a decent job here of clearly conveying the message---no collusion; no provable obstruction.

Low level people in FBI and DOJ good to great; it's their bosses who are criminals. Even nameds some names--Page and Strozk's kids have to be quaking in their boots.

Kamala's up.

anonamom

Pearls. Must be a California thing.
Double strand.

WTF does Kalama expect? That EXECUTIVES are supposed to go behind their personnel and INVESTIGATE themselves?

Moron.

She's an idiot Beasts, and an asshole, and completely out of her element.

Jane

Can you imagine her as president. She's be a dictator.

KevlarKid

re the Somali cop murder trial:

the cop's story was that a loud slam against his patrol car (in which he was riding shotgun) startled him and the driver.

his reflex was to fear for his life, point, and shoot the woman dead.

none of the victim's DNA was found on the car during a forensics investigation which followed. then the car was washed.

the "because i said so" defense fell apart.

stunning to me they had their lights off in the vehicle while sitting in that alley responding to a 911 caller.

not sure of the official rationale for doing so--- even if they were hoping to surprise the assailant, weren't they better off having an ironclad presence as POLICE?

or were they going to rely on their seated positions in the squad car to alert both vic and perp that they were armed police responding to the scene?

a real police chief will dissect this incident and retrain all of their rookies.

what say ye Chief gentlejim? i'm spitballin. :D

anonamom

Maybe I've lived in The South too long, but her constant interruptions and talk overs come across as showing her as being disrespectful and rude, not in charge or powerful.

henry

A California couple accused of paying up to $600,000 to help get their daughters accepted into college pleaded guilty Wednesday in the Operation Varsity Blues college admissions scandal.

That reaction would have come out in training. Everyone who signed off on this guy getting a badge is just as guilty as he is. Damond's blood is on all their hands.

Beasts of England

It's a sad spectacle, Jane. I am furious.

Jane

"her constant interruptions and talk overs come across as showing her as being disrespectful and rude, not in charge or powerful."

Amom,

I certainly hope you are right.

Kamala Harris wears the pearl necklace Willie gave her with pride.

fdcol63 ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

I hate to think about just where those pearls have been, KK. LOL

Threadkiller

Fox finally zooms in on a Republican and it is Ted Cruz. He is droning in his usual soapboxy style.

anonamom

Senator Cruz to do the wrap up.

Thanks him for serving; for coming over for slanderous "Kavanaugh Treatment" from his fellow senators (talking to YOU, Mazie!).

Comanche Voter

Geez Louise. That bicycle race "winner" is no Louise. I knew Louise. She was a real she---this dude not so much.

KevlarKid

imagine American foreign policy in the hands of any of the prospective Democrat candidates.

those jokes write themselves.

question for Mr. BootiCheez: how would any of the alpha males sitting across a negotiating table with you take your shoulder to hip width ratio seriously>

question 2 for Mr. BootiCheez: if you say you have a husband does your feminine physique suggest you are "his wife?" how are we to take your proclivity seriously?

question for Kamala: if you were porking Willie Brown, and while in the throes of that entanglement you received a $300,000 a year salary for sitting on a do-nothing commission, is the rest of your career not fruit of a poisoned tree?

all of this concern that Trump was a sitting duck to be blackmailed by Muh Russia---- all of these Dem candidates are quacking so loud i can't hear anything else but the impending thud of disaster.

jimmyk

As I recall, Damond came out in her nightgown. I'm sure she appeared to be very threatening. What a clusterfuck.

anonamom

Cruz is hitting it out of the park.
Excellent choice.

Threadkiller

I have to agree, Amom.

KevlarKid

true dat, James D.

would a potential shooter alert the cops by slamming against the car? a shooter getting that close would've bagged both those dummies. wtf?

On topic...

Personally, I kind of like seeing progland have these self-owns. Unfortunate that some actual women have to get hurt to make the point.

McKinnon is a hardcore activist for the cause, and is a prof at some university polluting minds with this rot.

And that 10% DSD number sounds like the same overblown BS we heard in the 80s about the percentage of homosexuals when they were trying to mainstream HIV/AIDS.

Beasts of England

I like Cruz with the beard. It suits him.

Jack is Back!

I wouldn't blame Fox. It's not their camera but rather CSpan's from what I remember about TV rights in Congress.

Clarice may even have a better citation as to who runs the cameras.

I could be wrong, as I usually am:)

KevlarKid

Senator Mazzo: don't you need federal funding to repair all of that volcano damage?

does she sit on the board of a casino or something?

not quite getting the leadership profile on her.

did she succeed Dan Inouye?

On the one hand, these flaming aholes are showing their colors on TV so the rule of holes applies.

On the other hand, every one of them got more votes in his state than the R opponent did. So the rule of being scared when justified also applies.

Agree KK--how the HELL did that Mazie woman get elected???
To the US Senate, no less. Hawaii--come on. I know you're better than that.
She comes across as a SNL parody of a crazy City Council or School Board member, at best. Gilda Radner's Church Lady on any board.

I find Whitehouse to have a special blend of slimey with his smugness.

Skin crawlingly creepy you are, Senator Blumenthal.
Not to mention the last person on the planet to EVER question anyone's integrity, as you did yet again today.

Trump now has to come to the defense of his AG, and the Dem attacks on him, by declassifying the FISA applications. Then following that outcry, start the DoJ/FBI investigation of Hillary, the DNC, Fusion GPS and the Spying on his campaign.

Time for the scorched earth tactic. Strategy is so yesterday.

anonamom

clarice, why did they let the Ds all have a second chance at him???

โ€œTo the US Senate, no less. Hawaii--come on. I know you're better than that.โ€œ

No real evidence for that sentiment. Hawaiians havenโ€™t elected a Republican Senator in nearly 50 years.

Porchlight

anonamom, it's Hawaii. Not the brightest state in the union by a long shot.

Big data doesn't like innovation. So they kill it with regulation. Just like Chamber of Cronies.

Privacy is not that difficult... it is the theater required by the compliance scam (lawyers and consultants) that are absurd and expensive.

โ€œThereโ€™s information that after the GDPR went into effect, a number of small businesses had to shut down because they could simply not afford to comply,โ€ Wicker said, referring to the European Unionโ€™s General Data Protection Regulation. A CNN report last year said GDPR forced an online game producer, a small social network and a mobile marketing firm to close key businesses or shut down entirely.

Thank you all so much! I told Porch that it's like having friends show up at the local gift market - a lovely thing. I sent them out on my way to acupuncture. I am a creature of my habitat.

So, my granola recipe was not so great. Anyone have a good one to share?

In Re: Hawai'i, Mrs.JiB's college (HS in Wales are Colleges) roomie is a "haole" on Oahu. She reminds us that the State's natives would prefer to be an independent nation. I think Mazzie represents that quarter.

Oh, if Mazie is who they send us to be a Senator, I say let them be their own nation. Just let us have a 500 year lease on our naval base.

These people are failing to ask why MUELLER didn't find obstruction, instead of leaving it for Barr.

THAT is the question that needs to be answered.
