hope not. But with the way “Biden” acts, is that what we are going to get? Oh please, no…
are not being told the whole truth. What a surprise, Folks,you gotta know history!
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as “bad luck.” – Robert Heinlein
(I hope) Republicans will get off the freakin’ dime and start fighting back! It is time to take off the gloves!
You want to prosecute former Presidents for paying off women they slept with? OK, Lefties, but understand well that this puts Bill Clinton and many other Democrats in jeopardy!
Is Alvin Bragg so much of an amateur that he didn’t realize that a charging document has to actually charge a crime? Does he think he can arrest and book a citizen without telling him what crime he’s accused of — like what they used to do in the good old USSR?
Prosecute for rape? Hey, old Joe is allegedly guilty of that. Prosecute lying and chronic dishonesty? I give you…Barack Obama! Hey Lefties, are you SURE you wanna play this game?
.. there’s the Pandora’s box he [Bragg] just opened. Unless the courts put a rapid end to this clown show, he has put the Clintons, Bidens, Obamas, and Pelosis in legal jeopardy — by forever changing the rules of political discourse and criminal justice in America. If the Dems are going to change the rules in their rabid pursuit of The Donald, it’s only appropriate that we review our tactics in light of the new rules.
But hey, Lefties, if YOU insist that these are the new rules… Just remember, what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander! We have LONG had a “norm” of not prosecuting former Presidents–for a VERY good reason. Say, you know you Lefties are NOT gonna like these new rules of yours!
You know what was the final nail in the coffin of the Roman Empire? Prosecuting former officials. THAT is why Caesar famously rolled the dice. By the time he got to the Rubicon, the die had been well and truly cast.
If Lefties were not so dang ignorant of history they would know better! <sigh>
But they don’t, They have no idea what’s coming! And they won’t like it one bit.
In fact, some on the left understand the concept of turnabout and know these charges are weak and likely to fail. Others are digging up calendars and counting the years since their last hush money payment made during their own campaign.
Either way, so-called liberals should be wary of what a Trump presidency would look and feel like for them. That particular man, wounded and embarrassed and objectively wronged, with no need to tone it down for the campaign, should be of critical concern for anyone with a “D” on their elected office nameplate.
a bit of a gift. Trump hauled in $4 million in 24 hours after his indictment.
The Trump campaign announced on Friday evening that they hauled in over $4 million in fundraising following the indictment announcement. The campaign touted the grassroots nature of the donations – with an average contribution of $38 – and that a quarter of the money came from first-time donors to the Trump campaign.
Yeah, A QUARTER of the money came from first-time donors, with an average donation of $38! Gee, how many donors who give $38 does it take to hit $4 million?
Indeed, normal people are offended by this gross affront to fairness, propriety, and common sense. Not only are the charges laughably weak from a legal perspective, but this whole thing is clear retaliation–very obviously persecutory. Prosecuting your political opponents is banana republic crap. It is offensive. These spittle-lipped hard Lefty wackos ought to be ashamed!
BUT, these doofs have no shame. This will not end well for them. Do they have no understanding of history at all?
I’m glad to see this.
When, 100 years from now, people look back and identify the most goofy and backward things of this era, two things will immediately come to their minds:
- Gun control
- Surgically mutilating kids in the “Transgender”
very interesting to see how this works out.
Cole, who describes herself as a “former trans kid,” was put on puberty blockers and testosterone at age 13, had a double mastectomy at 15, and then detransitioned at 16. She is now suing those who “performed, supervised, and/or advised transgender hormone therapy and surgical intervention,” in an attempt to ensure that no other young people are harmed by doctors the way she was.
CAN a 15-year-old consent to such a thing? What about the people who encouraged her? Could a school teacher also share in the liability? Did parents give consent and therefore be involved in liability?
This was a kid! And one who now is forever damaged. So does liability attach? The ONLY defense seems to be Informed Consent. But it is not clear (at all) to me that such an approach will stave off legal liability, especially in a minor.
Plus, even if the person gains the age of majority, are they mentally unstable/ill and thus in a “vulnerable population” and the surgeon (and maybe others) knew or should have known the problem and thus violated their fiduciary duty by consenting to/performing the surgery or prescribing hormone blockers?
Like I say, this could get very interesting!
I remember about 25-30 years ago when there was the “repressed memory” fad. Total nonsense, and quite damaging. It very quickly died out when victims and their parents started suing psychotherapists.
See, in this current case such suits probably can NOT be short-circuited with an appeal to informed consent. And THIS deals with kids and/or vulnerable people! CAN these kids consent to forever body-altering drugs and surgery?
My guess? This is a recapitulation of that repressed memory sort of nonsense, on steroids…
As the famous saying goes, history doesn’t always repeat itself, but it often rhymes.
VERY big deal. But at heart, what was old in new again. And “transgender” surgery is the new lobotomy.
Unfortunately, the science of treating mental illness is not especially good, and the treatments themselves have at times been cruel, destructive, and sometimes downright evil.
Guys, this mutilation is a fad! But unfortunately, there are kids who are now permanently damaged because of this. And others will be before this fad runs its course. Surgeons who are willing to mutilate others in this way for money are despicable.
And it’s incredibly destructive. People who are suffering are getting quack treatments. Sometimes they’re suffering something serious and real, in which case the treatment should be intense and appropriate to the condition; other times it is the result of a teenage phase and should be seen as a teen experimenting with Goth culture. Instead, we are medicalizing the problem and literally sterilizing children and surgically altering their bodies. For profit.
