the dog on the left. Some days, it's more like the dog on the right!
Just wondering if there's anyone here who would argue against this decision, and on what grounds?
"If communications sent through personal accounts were categorically excluded from CPRA, government officials could hide their most sensitive, and potentially damning, discussions in such accounts," Associate Justice Carol Corrigan wrote for the seven-member court.
The ruling came in a lawsuit against the city of San Jose. San Jose City Attorney Richard Doyle said he was not surprised by the decision and did not plan to challenge it. But he said it raised practical challenges for cities and counties.
"The question is how do we access those communications on personal devices without the government being overly intrusive," he said. "I don't expect and intend to have people turn over their phones."
We're all hoping this will bring down the Trump administration and perhaps it will in due course. But a more likely scenario for now is Sessions steps down in disgrace and then Drumpf brings in another AG.
Don't tell me it will be Rudy Giuliani or Chris Christie. Who are the other likely options?
The bear might be available...
First of all, this initiative will only result in growing animosity toward all immigrants, even though it's only supposed to pertain to "aliens," or those here illegally. It will skew people's thinking and distort the perception of crime committed by undocumented immigrants.
Beyond that, how long until people are added to the list who aren't yet convicted? If people try to defend this by saying, "Oh come one, they're not going to make shit up," then remind them of the "Bowling Green massacre" or the fictional attack in Sweden that Trump referenced on national TV.
During a landmark speech to Congress markedly softer in tone than his inauguration address, in which he dialled back his trademark brash rhetoric, he revealed that he would set up a special taskforce for "immigrant crime".
The unit will come under the auspices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Department of Homeland Security confirmed.
ICE is expected to publish a weekly list of all crimes committed by what it terms "aliens".
Any UFC fans here? GSP is making his comeback after a 3-year layoff and it was confirmed today that his first fight will be against middleweight champ Michael Bisping. Date and venue to be confirmed. I am stoked!!
Count me out!
