Re: JON RITZHEIMER: "I'm taking initiative"

Cue Pink Floyd . . . We don't need no gun control . . . The "We don't need no education" bit is incorrect though. Isn't Ritzy the guy who had a sign at his door, saying don't forget your guns? Presumably, if he comes to wherever she is living, she cannot keep the guns in the house. I don't think th...

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Thanks, Somerset. But even if it is heavily filtered by the time it gets to the people, it won't be filtered at the top levels. I'm wondering more about how the Chinese authorities are taking it than how the Chinese people are taking it, since the people don't have a lot of clout anyway. I don't ha...

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Somerset will correct me if I'm wrong, but I was always taught that 'face' matters a lot in Chinese culture, and that, if you don't give them a way to save face, you're in for a fight. China's president has all the time in the worlds. Their economy is managed centrally, and they own shiploads of Am...

Re: Randall v. County of Orange, Anti-CPS Class-Action Lawsuit

Yep. We settled the case for $375k. The class cert motion was denied. It doesn't mean we quit. Just gotta go back, re-tool, and try again. Either way, the kid's college is paid for by Orange County, and we got our fees. Not the huge win I was looking for. But, if at first you don't succeed, try aga...

Re: Kavanaugh hearings: Avenatti casually tossing bombs

The Michael Avenatti Show seems akin to a fireworks display to me: it gives amusement to many onlookers but ultimately achieves very little and may even cause some damage if sparks land in unfortunate places. It certainly isn't worth a flouncing session or even extended huffery and puffery. I'm wor...
