I read my

old hometown news on line. Corrupt politicians everywhere.

60 Minutes

Torture porn! I know its horrendous, but must you present it into our living rooms? Awful and disturbing with no warning.

Just a bone to pick

It seems there's a new rush to form premium streaming channels lately. Payment extra, of course. Looks like they are putting their popular shows there and only showing reruns on their cable stations that we already pay for. Dang, can't they give viewers a break during the pandemic! Feeling like a rip off is in play.

Happy Valentine's Day

And a huge Thank You to those who graciously gave me a heart. Much appreciated.

Just made a promise

to myself. Never going to write his name again or read anything about him and his spawn! Lets go Joe!

A curious ad

Has popped up on my DU pages. I keep getting an ad for custom t-shirts that have my actual last name on them. This is an anonymous site. Why is this happening?

Who in the hell is

James Wilson?

. James Wilson was unloved by the people, who thought him a wealthy, anti-democratic aristocrat, yet as a framer of the Constitution he championed the rights of the common man. A preeminent legal scholar, he was three times passed over for appointment as chief justice of the Supreme Court. One of the best educated and most energetic men of his time, he spent his last years a debtor, hunted, in his words, “like a wild beast” by anxious creditors. James Wilson’s life was filled with contradictions, but it was, above all else, a life devoted to the law and to the new American republic.

Doesn't understand the First Amendment. Said you can say anything without consequences.

Shouting fire in a crowded theater" is a popular analogy for speech or actions made for the principal purpose of creating panic. The phrase is a paraphrasing of Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.'s opinion in the United States Supreme Court case Schenck v. United States in 1919, which held that the defendant's speech in opposition to the draft during World War I was not protected free speech under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. The case was later partially overturned by Brandenburg v. Ohio in 1969, which limited the scope of banned speech to that which would be directed to and likely to incite imminent lawless action (e.g. a riot).[1]
