“Rancher Bundy should’ve told the feds that those were Mexican cows – who came across the border illegally to seek better grazing opportunities. It was an act of love.”

Posted by: Fritz at April 18, 2014 07:07 AM (oJUxt)

25 I missed the thread yesterday evening regarding the loss of free speech by Mark Steyn. I did want to make a comment as to exactly what constitutes "free speech" in the US. This is one of the most misunderstood areas of Constitutional law in the US.


First off, the first amendment to the Constitution only applies to government bodies. Originally this was only the federal government, but since then it has gradually morphed into all government bodies. It does NOT apply to private individuals or companies. It also does not apply to ALL speech. So what does this all boil down to as a practical matter?


No government body can censor your speech, or in most cases punish you for it, except for limited cases in public schools where the need to maintain a school environment outweighs the speech.


Speech which is NOT protected from government interference are things like threats, illegal activities, incitement to riot, obscenity, divulging classified info, and a few other categories.


As for free speech at work and among other non-government entities, it is not protected at all. Someone can sue you at will for just about anything, as Mark Steyn is finding out from he who shall not be named. And if you call your boss vile names get ready to collect your pink slip and you have no recourse.

Problem 1: Dr's office moved across town to a location it took me 45 min to find.
Problem 2. After finally finding the correct building office was locked.
Problem 3: Called Dr and got nurse. My appointment had been moved to the 24th at 2:30 pm. With this Dr that means I may get to see him at 5:30 pm.


Problem 4: After waling all over the huge medical complex to find the office, it took me another hour of walking to find my car in one of the many parking garages.

I was PISSED when I got home from this wasted trip that is an hour in each direction from my house.

That's the closest you've ever been on getting a Common Core story right. SC is not dropping out of the Common Core. Smarter Balance is one of two testing consortia. PARCC is the other. All they do is develop and administer the tests required under the Common Core. Just like Georgia before them, SC has decided that it is cheaper to develop their own test than to pay Smarter Balance to develop one for them. That's not the same as dropping out of Common Core.

63 Re: Adopted children. I have known two couples in the last 30 years who gave adopted children up. The reason for both was the children weren't up to their standards. One was an asshole who worked for the feds and the kid wasn't smart enough for his (non)genius IQ household. I'm not sure how this was assessed on an four year old from China but they did. The "father" was run over and killed on the side of the road changing a tire in Dallas a few years later. He didn't pull over far enough and the person who hit him was found not at fault. The other couple didn't like the way their Russian federation boy looked. He was funny looking or some crap. They gave him back and then no other agency would let them have another child. They remain nasty and childless. Making creeps like this keep a kid they don't want is not good for the kid.

75 Why in the Hell would anyone who went through all the trouble to adopt a child want to give it up?

----

Sometimes they didn't go through that much trouble (in some places they'll let literally anyone adopt from foster care) sometimes the kid has severe problems that the parents are too selfish to deal with properly.

There was a story about this "rehoming" nightmare running around the internets a few months back, Reuters "The Child Exchange". One of the adoptive parents who rehomed her kid (left him with a convicted child pornographer) was a professional foster parent from Chicago. She went and retrieved her son when she heard that a social worker was coming to check on them, and her "rehoming" might cause them to remove her other paychecks, er, foster kids.

On the contrary, God has given us a Savior who turns our knowledge and understanding on its head, who places with himself, bare and exposed on a disgraceful cross.

Jesus, this is where everyone abandons you. "We must not take things, so far," we say. "That would be to carry the truths of Christianity too far and to make them odious and distasteful in the sight of the world." Well, do we not know that ungodly irreverent people will be scandalized, since even good religious people are?....My dear Savior, let those who will drink your bitter cup...I will say as you taught me, "Remove this cup from me; yet--in spite of all my intense fear and dread-"not my will but yours be done."

These truths are too strong for wordily people who know you only halfway and can follow you only in the comforting moments of the Transfiguration....
Let us go to Jesus. Let us go to Calvary..."


From "The Complete Works of Francois Fenelon" by Paraclete Press

Good old Fenelon. He doesn't mess around. He doesn't sugar coat it. He doesn't jump from the hosannas of Palm Sunday to Easter Jubilation. There is an abandonment by his disciples and a torturous death. One thing I like about Fenelon is that he lived what he believed. He went from being a highly respected individual at the magnificent court circle of Louis XIV to being disgraced and in exile as a an Archbishop in Cambrai where he set out to improve the lot of the peasants in his District. In his writings, he's been giving people spiritual counsel for 300 plus years. I pray I can have a portion of his courage and devotion.

A blessed holy Good Friday to brothers and sisters in Christ.

86 Vic,
No one bothered to call you?
SOBs!

Mine was 5 minutes long. I know what I need and told the receptionist over the phone that I know what my pain doctor had to do. I was 100% correct. My car has trip counter. It took me 2 hours and 45 minutes round trip to go 30 miles. I got to doctors new office fine, I used navigation system. I dont usually use it when Im familiar with where Im going. He used to be in Spine Clinic at Newton Wellesley Hospital, now he has his own practice. System got me there easier than I would have gone on my own.

I made the mistake of letting it tell me how to get home. I got out of there at 4:45 and hit tons of traffic. I didnt get home until almost 7.

Im getting two injections in C5 for my shoulder pain. There is nothing wrong with my shoulder, its all from pinched nerves in neck. One is next Friday at noon & the next is May 9 a three.

Im calling today to reschedule the 3 oclock appointment to earlier in the day so I do not end up in traffic again. Ill be there at least an hour and at best Id be out of there at 4.

97 Even though I don't think I could get myself to watch it; from TruthRevolt.org

Gosnell, a TV movie based on the life of abortion doctor and convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell, has become the most funded movie on Indiegogo.

The TV movie has already raised $930,530 (goal of 2.1 million) and continues to grow. With Gosnell, husband and wife (and conservative) filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney have surpassed the likes of James Franco and Shemar Moore, who both raised money for films through crowd funding. Franco collected $327,929 for Palo Alto Stories, whose initial goal was $500,000, while Moore raised $638,983 on a goal of $500,000 for the romantic comedy The Bounce Back.

Some celebrities have also signed on and made videos of their own to promote the film. According to the filmmakers:

After Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam and Nick Sercy (Justified) who released a video two days ago on YouTube we noticed huge spikes after those videos were released. I think it really shows that people really respect Hollywood celebrities who reflect their views and tell their stories. They were really crucial to the success so far.


I really hope they make it.

They are being bought off by buisness people (mainly chicken processors and large corporate farms). The have put out that it is outreach to Hispanics because they are a growing group (self fulfilling action). What they actually think is that the "base" will continue to vote for them because the alternative is the Democrats.

101 Scott Brown was already seated, which was why it passes by reconciliation.
Posted by: Bevel Lemelisk at April 18, 2014 07:28 AM (uhAkr)

Bevel Lemelisk,
I believe they passed it before they swore Scott Brown in. I am 90% sure that SCOAMF signed law in March of 2010, not April.

I live in MA & they were wasting time to swear Scott Brown in.

MA is where they change the laws to suit dems. in 2004 they changed law from governor appointing senator when they thought Kerry was going to win to special election because Romney was governor then.

They wanted to change it again when Ted K died but didnt. Deval put some crony of his in as a seat warmer until the election could be held. I believe seat warmer voted for it.

I think TFG signed the law on March 23 because some of its smaller laws took effect September 23 of 2010, six months later.

I might be wrong about exact date but I believe it was signed in March.

we can't trust him to in force the law.

119 Vic,
If you aren't attached to the oncologist, you should seriously consider getting one closer to your home. Especially after you wasted hours you can't get back yesterday.

Mine was pretty far away in 2002 & a few times I tried others closer to my home. They didn't do what she did 12 years ago as standard follow up. Regular MRIs & blood work. Dana Farber only did mammograms & I called mine back & said she was stuck with me, plus it like her.

My two lumps didn't show up on mammogram & under ultrasound looked like nothing. I made doctor doing ultrasound do biopsy & he said he would if someone would stay to help & she did.

I wouldn't be here if I had listened to him. I had two & I was right about both, one I had in 1995 & removed came back in same exact spot & it was nothing. I wasn't worried about that one, a second one showed up within a week & I had bad feeling.

Kevin Sorbo was recently in a movie called God's Not Dead. I don't know if he has always been a Christian or if it is recent or just recently revealed. But he got a lot of cred from the Christian community for that movie.

Also, Christian themed movies are improving in production values. Bigger stars showing up. Dean Cain and Sorbo in that film, so reaching SyFy original levels anyway.

139 Just because he reminds me of so many today, especially those in public life:

__________

As Judas left the Sanhedrin chamber, he removed the thirty pieces of silver from the bag and threw them broadcast over the temple floor. When the betrayer left the temple, he was almost beside himself. Judas was now passing through the experience of the realization of the true nature of sin. All the glamor, fascination, and intoxication of wrongdoing had vanished. Now the evildoer stood alone and face to face with the judgment verdict of his disillusioned and disappointed soul. Sin was bewitching and adventurous in the committing, but now must the harvest of the naked and unromantic facts be faced.

This onetime ambassador of the kingdom of heaven on earth now walked through the streets of Jerusalem, forsaken and alone. His despair was desperate and well-nigh absolute. On he journeyed through the city and outside the walls, on down into the terrible solitude of the valley of Hinnom, where he climbed up the steep rocks and, taking the girdle of his cloak, fastened one end to a small tree, tied the other about his neck, and cast himself over the precipice. Ere he was dead, the knot which his nervous hands had tied gave way, and the betrayers body was dashed to pieces as it fell on the jagged rocks below.

Indeed, someone can sue you for looking at them wrong. It doesn't mean the suit itself is valid.

This is why we need tort reform in general, but in the case of speech broader anti-SLAPP protections.

My boss firing me is just free association at work, but using the legal system is, by definition a type of government action, even if instigated by an individual. I still relies on laws set up by the government.

This country has been needed tort reform for a very long time. If it was left up to me there would be no tort lawyers except in the case of a written contract under dispute. All such crap as the you "defamed" me shit would be handled in a single day at court with the two parties involved. Much like small claims.



But as long as the lawyers all donate and infest the Democrat party that will never happen.

You should go see doctor near you, if you like him switch. He'll be able to get CT scan results.
My mother started losing it in 2002-2003. Quack doctor had her have MRI on brain. She went into a diabetic come & we had to call 911. I can be a bully, my older brother called quack to tell him about it & he had nurse give my brother my mother's insulin dose! I called Joslin Clinic, got an appointment for her right away. I told doctor quietly about MRI, he called & got results while we were there.

My mother had MRI on brain to see if she was having tiny strokes, she wasn't & it was beginning go Alzheimer's.

It was done at one of the many Mass General test sites. I'm sure Joslin Clinic was probably in network, but I don't know.

174 For contrast of character, and because I couldn't just leave it at Judas, not today. Have a good day, friends, I'm heading out into it.

_____

When Jesus was arrested, he knew that his work on earth, in the likeness of mortal flesh, was finished. He fully understood the sort of death he would die, and he was little concerned with the details of his so-called trials.

Before the Sanhedrist court Jesus declined to make replies to the testimony of perjured witnesses. There was but one question which would always elicit an answer, whether asked by friend or foe, and that was the one concerning the nature and divinity of his mission on earth. When asked if he were the Son of God, he unfailingly made reply. He steadfastly refused to speak when in the presence of the curious and wicked Herod. Before Pilate he spoke only when he thought that Pilate or some other sincere person might be helped to a better knowledge of the truth by what he said. Jesus had taught his apostles the uselessness of casting their pearls before swine, and he now dared to practice what he had taught. His conduct at this time exemplified the patient submission of the human nature coupled with the majestic silence and solemn dignity of the divine nature....

And rest assured the cultural institutions view those "in the shadows" as far more worthy of attention than you. You they despise. What are you going to do?

It is good they have found a mission that could help America regain it's founding. It amazes me that this is not part of K-12.

The party said Axelrod will work closely with senior Labour officials and take part in regular strategic discussions with party leader Ed Miliband. Both Milband and Axelrod are Jewish. (AP)

236 President Barack Obama is meeting today with the head of the American Legion, in what amnesty opponents fear is a yet another effort to bypass public opposition to passage of a massive business-backed immigration increase.

House Speaker John Boehner also added to the alarms Thursday night, when the Wall Street Journal reported that he told business donors gathered last month in Las Vegas that he is hellbent on getting this done.

The American Legion is suddenly a player in the immigration fight because it has come out in opposition to a minor, but critical amendment to the draft 2015 defense bill. The amendment would broaden the existing rules allowing illegal immigrants to get slots in the U.S. military that are sought by American volunteers.

If the amendment is added to the bill, and then passed by the full House, it would allow the Senate and House to include a large immigration rewrite in the must-pass defense bill.

That immigration rewrite could consist of a small amnesty for younger illegals, or a copy of the Senates June 2013 bill, which would triple the inflow of legal immigrants and guest-workers to 40 million over the next decade. That huge inflow is roughly equal to the number of Americans youths who will join the workforce by 2024 in search of decent jobs.

The amendment maneuver would allow top GOP leaders to push an immigration bill past their caucus.

On the flip side, you can't just give up your child by birth (after a certain point) if they turn out to be an asshole as well.

The point of adoption is to give you the same legal rights as the birth parent, why should they get special rights beyond that?

(And before people start going on about "well these kids are different." meh, my family gene pool and my wife's has plenty of crazy, if/when we kids we're probably rolling the dice just as much.)

The earlier quotes at 139 & 174 were from the Urantia Papers, I should mention, linked in the nic on those comments. My brother first pressed The Urantia Book upon me and my best friend over forty years ago. At the time, we were the only people we knew who had ever heard of it. I enjoy it, but I'm the kind of oddball who wakes his wife up at night laughing out loud reading Moby Dick.

My nic on this comment links to a comic I did a year ago, looooosely based on the Urantia Papers' descriptions of Easter week. Note that I let it simmer a year before mentioning it among this nest of opinions. The comic might be like those later Harry Potter movies, a/k/a "scenes similar to some in the books," where if you're not familiar with the source, you won't get some of it, but I try for generally enjoyable regardless. It's the basic Easter week story as alt universe SF where they had tv and cell phones in 30AD.

And now, for true, adieu.

332 I went to an Easter play presented in a black church last Saturday. It has weighed on my heart, since. I know, these things happen for a reason.

This play was eye opening to me. Because the story is the story - the source material is the same. But watching how this was presented, to hear what was emphasized, I learned a lot. About the community that was the audience, and about the story itself.

I'll point to just one thing. The Sanhedrin brought Jesus to Pilate and asked Pilate to put him to death. In all the years of seeing and hearing the Easter story, here was something I had never heard - it has always been there, I have somehow missed it.

From the KJV, John 19:6:

...Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.

I always understood that Pilate was a reluctant player in the Easter story, that he did not want to be drawn into the local politics of the temple, and afterward, he washed his hands of the consequences. But I had missed that Pilate himself thought that Jesus was innocent.

This was a new view to me. Rome is always the heavy in The Greatest Story Ever Told. We hear it every time in the Nicene Creed, that He "was crucified under Pontius Pilate." Which is true -but....

It was enlightening to me. Rome and Pilate are not exonerated here - far from it. And that this African American congregation made a big deal of that explains a lot to me.

Rome does not crucify Jesus because they are trying to stomp out the burgeoning following around Christ - they do it capriciously, to quell local unrest, a part of a literal conspiracy to kill an innocent man. Their evil is not that are acting with bad intent, but rather that they are acting in the full knowledge that what they are doing is wrong, but do it anyway.

Now, Morons don't come here for theology, even on Good Friday. How does this apply to the current crisis?

It helps me understand how African Americans look at the American Experience as something alien to them. That the US Government is in many ways like Rome - capricious, and doing what is wrong even when they know it is wrong. And part of the - wait for it - "fundamental transformation of America" is that we are all getting a taste of that. I don't think that Obama and Holder consciously are saying, hey, let's give white people a taste of their own medicine, but I don't doubt there is some amount of their experience informing them.

Listening to Glenn Beck over the past few days, he has made some points about this whole Nevada ranch thing. His main deal over it is that people showed up with guns to face down the government, and he is pushing non-violent resistance. And he asks many times - are you facing attack dogs and fire hoses? Is it anything like what African Americans faced? (An aside - my mother was in a restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida when there was a disturbance. Black people were trying to get in, there were police with dogs and cattle prods. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested and jailed. This is living memory. Hard to believe that the Mustang is 50 years old? Well, same year.)

I think this is one reason why people try to say that reaction to Obama policies is racist. I know, it is a default and is used by white liberals to mau mau people - but I think that there are many people, many African Americans, who are thinking - well, now that the government is capricious and unfair to you you say something about it.

There may be something to it. I used to be a "law and order" (not the TV show) guy - crack down on criminals. But after having my own tangles with the legal system (divorce and traffic tickets!) I know it isn't like you see on TV. It is a capricious and unfair system. It isn't about finding the truth. And cops lie, and nobody cares. Judges I am sure know that the cops are lying on the stand, but they go along with it. Coming into contact with the "justice" system opened my eyes. I didn't complain about it until it affected me. Did it just suddenly become bad, or is not just no longer deniable to me?

I don't know. I didn't turn into some bleeding heart liberal. But I can see why people might think and say the things they do. And it makes me think that there is something to, this, too:

Criminal Justice Reform: The GOPs Best Hope to Reach Minority Voters

http://alturl.com/zppxv

There is no question anymore that law enforcement, and our legal system, are unfair, and out of control. And it isn't just that way to Tea Party organizations applying for tax exempt status.

Kiehl is a neuroscientist at the Mind Research Network and the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, and hes devoted his career to studying whats different about the brains of psychopaths people whose lack of compassion, empathy, and remorse has a tendency to get them into trouble with the law. On the plane, Kiehl had been typing up notes from an interview hed done with a psychopath in Illinois whod been convicted of murdering two women and raping and killing a 10-year old girl.

At least get treatment and put in more than a couple of months before you pawn him off on child abusers.

I met an elderly couple who told me their daughter worked for a high powered female executive who adopted a kid from Russia. She was always leaving her with the daughter while she went away on business. She pretty much became a part of their family and the adoptive mother relinquished control but they did it legally and she was adopted by the daughter. The grandparents were thrilled. So, that was a situation that ended happily.

Two things:


1) Good grief that's rude, reading over someone's shoulder like that.

and

2) When you're typing up your notes from interviewing a convicted murderer and rapist, it probably helps to either A) make it very clear that that is what you're doing (perhaps with a header that says, very clearly, "NOTES FROM INTERVIEW WITH MURDERING PSYCHOPATH, APRIL 2014", or B) not type them on a frigging plane where Nosy Nellies are staring over your shoulder.

Student Jumps to Death at Denver Hotel After Eating Too Much Pot

DENVER (AP) A Wyoming college student who jumped to his death at a Denver hotel had eaten more of a marijuana cookie than was recommended by a seller, police records show a finding that comes amid increased concern about the strength of popular pot edibles after Colorado became the first state to legalize recreational marijuana.

Levy Thamba Pongi, 19, consumed more than one cookie purchased by a friend even though a store clerk told the friend to cut each cookie into six pieces and to eat just one piece at a time, said the reports obtained Thursday.

Pongi began shaking, screaming and throwing things around a hotel room before he jumped over a fourth-floor railing into the hotel lobby March 11. An autopsy report listed marijuana intoxication as a "significant contributing factor" in the death.

364 On the plane, Kiehl had been typing up notes from an interview hed done with a psychopath in Illinois whod been convicted of murdering two women and raping and killing a 10-year old girl. The woman sitting next to him thought he was typing out a confession.

Reminds me of Manhunter when he falls asleep on the plane with his case photos out and his seatmate freaks out.

DENVER (AP) A Wyoming college student who jumped to his death at a Denver hotel had eaten more of a marijuana cookie than was recommended by a seller,
police records show a finding that comes amid increased concern about
the strength of popular pot edibles after Colorado became the first
state to legalize recreational marijuana.




Why would you sell a cookie that can't be eaten all at once?

Would it, though? Since the psychopath is in prison and presumably the information about his crimes is readily available, and Kiehl isn't acting as his therapist. Hmm... Interesting question.
I was on a plane once and there was a guy sitting across the aisle from me who was typing up notes about missiles and various military related things about the middle east. It was a very colorful and eye catching report he was working on, so I assume it wasn't anything confidential, but I considered leaning across the aisle and asking him if that wasn't something that should be kept under wraps.

398 Pot isn't harmless. Neither is aspirin.

Some people can handle a whole cookie, some people can't. If you're not an experienced user of any substance (alcohol comes in bottles that a lightweight can't handle) you should probably take the advice of other people who are experienced users.

The privacy regs as they apply to researchers probably don't have a "unless a person is in prison" part. They'd also be different from treating physician rules.

Usually any data like that has to be kept and worked on "private" location. (I forget what the technical term is.)

Ah, but you see, the erroneous belief out there in the zeitgeist is that pot IS harmless, or at least that the worst it will do to you is make you zone out and crave Funyuns. Hence why there's been such a push for legalization all over the country. "It's less dangerous than alcohol or cigarettes, and THEY'RE legal!" There's very little public knowledge about the fact that marijuana can and does effect different people differently, and sometimes very badly.

It's like kids who think popping prescription meds or OTC cough syrup is totally safe because they're "medicine" and medicine is supposed to make/keep people healthier. They pay no attention to warning labels or the common sense advice to not take anyone else's prescription medication, because they're after a quick, "safe" high. They're exactly the same people who would buy pot cookies and then ignore the warning labels, because "pot's totally safe."

There's a term, I just forget what it is.

It's stricter than "non-public." but not to the level of "SCIF."

Well, not exactly.
One place I was looking at their internal rules(Harvard maybe? Duke? Anyway.)
Point is their rules for "Tier 1 information" was basically the description of a SCIF.

Nothing says "this place has classified information in it." copying and pasting the SCIF rules in your university policy .

407 Today's pot is a lot stronger.

A lot.

But also, a lot of the pot sold has additives. Meth type stuff is not uncommon.

Years ago it was ketamine. And that stuff will fuck you up.

So, the quality control and safety concerns exerted by those breaking the law for profit may not be of the
highest level...


Imagine that.

410 "On the flip side, you can't just give up your child by birth (after a certain point) if they turn out to be an asshole as well.

The point of adoption is to give you the same legal rights as the birth parent, why should they get special rights beyond that?

You can talk morality or incentives. This law creates incentives to leave US born children unadopted.

I suppose that we can build more orphanages and potential adoptive parents can adopt from overseas where they are more likely to find healthy infants who were not born crazy or abused for their first few years of life. Or, many potential adoptive parents might well decide not to adopt after all, especially if they already have children who could be put at risk by playing the adoption version of Russian roulette. That is the entirely predictable consequence of this law making it impossible to give back adopted children.

But you are correct, it has a certain moral argument in its favor.
