Re: School Violence

Sadly the NRA has also infiltrated the Democratic Party. These deaths are the responsibility of gutless politicians whose only desire is to be re-elected. Yes, sadly. Speaking of which, has anyone ever done any kind of accounting of the money flow through the NRA? There aren't all that many dues pa...

Y'all know that's fake, right?
I originally said it had to be performance art or something like that. It's over the top even for this scum puppy. So in a roundabout way, I was asking if it was fake ;)

One more interesting tidbit from the article:
Hilary Potashner, a public defender who is representing Yohai, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
He's either hurting financially, or he's hid his assets very, very well.

Assuming AT&T, etc., sought "access," would the federal lobby registration laws apply to Cohen's situation? I doubt that it was ever phrased in those terms. I suspect that they phrased it more in terms of "seeking guidance and insight into how the President might approach a range of hypothetical sc...

But contempt is (or can be) civil. Is a civil contempt citation that says you stay in jail until you answer an "offense against the United States" that the president can pardon? Certainly possible (although civil contempt is limited to 18 months). Some FOBs did their 18 months rather than comply wi...
