Re: Another Shooting

I have a possibly very naive question, but why are AR-15 guns considered less dangerous than regular guns? I make this assumption because someone can buy one without any waiting period (at least in Florida, as I now know) whereas there is a wait time for 'ordinary' guns. I don't think the AR-15s sh...

Viewed, perhaps. Recorded or photographed? Not without explicit permission.

Revenge porn is bad. This is a law that criminalizes it. That's good :-)

Re: Trump had his attorney Michael Cohen pay porn star Stormy Daniels $130k in hush money

I saw someone on Chris Hayes propose that these payoffs were not election related, but perhaps prenup related. The theory is that Drumpf's prenup (or maybe postnup) has some kind of clause that if OSG cheats on Melania, she gets $$$. I don't know much about prenups or postnups, but I'd be surprised...

Re: Trump had his attorney Michael Cohen pay porn star Stormy Daniels $130k in hush money

I'll bet she's looking into how this will affect the pre-nup. Donnie might be kissing his money away. I doubt it affects her pre-nup at all. The OSG has been a serial adulterer since his Ivana days and his attorneys have had lots of practice with him. Any pre-nup for the third wife would almost cer...
