    Correct, Cav.
    Also, regarding defamation claims (slander & libel): truthfulness of the statement at issue IS a defense, but it is an “affirmative defense.” That means that the defendant in a defamation case has the burden of proof that his statement was, in fact, truthful.

    OK, lance — I just signed the pledge.

    Re: At the time of publication, the American Family Association’s “Boycott Target” petition had garnered more than one million signatures.
    Some who have not signed the petition are also boycotting — my family included.

    I suspect that the Pence endorsement for Cruz will be a positive for Cruz.
    Interesting, though, how so very many “attacks” are effectively “endorsements” (e.g., the Pope slamming Trump before Super Tuesday).

    Hmm . . . “wild-eyed conspiracy theories”
    OK, whatever.
    Oh, and what WAS the reason that the Obama administration gave for ending the practice of selling the military’s brass shell casings to reloaders?
    Just wondering why they would forgo that revenue.
    Also, what about the “reduce, reuse, recycle” mantra?
    Doesn’t “reload” fit as a form of “reuse”?

    Hey, foo
    Here is the Chuck Stein solution if SCOTUS prohibits requiring ID to vote:
    ad hoc “Provisional ID” is provided at the polling place.
    Poor Juan Valdez just could not go out and get ID and that burden is going to stop him from voting?
    Nope: Juan can get an ID right then and there. He gets his picture taken, gives a thumb print and signs a statement regarding the penalties for voter fraud in the state.
    The DA could have a nicely packaged voter fraud case in that case.

    So, Simple, you are sore about Cruz stopping the Gang of Eight amnesty?

    A good plaintiff’s attorney would tell Elliott Hirshman about his civil claim: false imprisonment is a tort. Each of those small-minded tortfeasors is jointly and severally liable for damages. Hmmm . . . what if Mr. Hirshman is so shook up by this that he can no longer serve as university president? Could be BIG bucks there. Also, liability for damages related to one’s intentional tort is NOT a liability that can be discharged in bankruptcy — it is a liability that must be satisfied OR stays on the financial record of the debtor. So . . . this could get really fun.

    Nothing like using terrorist tactics to show that you are NOT terrorists!

    Hey, Blaze editors,
    Re: “er-misogynist” candidate
    It is “ur” not “er”. It is a German prefix that denotes “original” or “at the beginning”
    Example: the word “zeit” is German for “time” and “urzeit” is German for “ancient”

    actually, BRO, the reason is that Americans are humans like everyone else on the planet and, to quote Calvin Coolidge (from memory, so I might not have it precisely): “Communism will fail because it is against human nature.”

  • [21] April 28, 2016 at 5:04pm

    Yeah, “socialism never ends well” — but that is the ONE topic where Obama et al believe in “American Execptionalism”
    Just because it has failed everywhere else, why can’t it succeed here?

    Still not women if they have had surgery — then they are “amputees”

    Brings back Obama’s self-assessment a few years ago.

    Hannity will be there for Trump — as he has been from the beginning.
    Thanks, Sean, a solid-Left Supreme Court a year from now in exchange for you getting a ratings boost in early 2016.
    What’s NOT to love about that trade-off?

    “while his followers continue to slurp the Kool-aid.”
    Yeah, and the Kool-aid they drink will hurt all of us.

    Newsflash: primaries are different from the general election. The dems that vote in the PRIMARIES for Trump are doing that to give Clinton an easy win in November. Not all, of course, but the vast majority.
    Sorry, but reality has to be addressed (though your enunciated delusions are quite entertaining, I’ll admit!).

    Re: Chapter 11 filings are always a good move.
    In Trump’s 2009 bankruptcy case, unsecured creditors — low-level investors, contractors, small-time vendors — got less than a penny on the dollar for their claims against Trump Entertainment Resorts. Tell THOSE people how “good” it was that they got less than a penny on the dollar for money that Trump owed them.
    Also, SOME people who declare bankruptcy (either personally or through the use of the corporate veil) have been know to pay those whom they stiffed through bankruptcy. Not Trump, of course. That “honor” thing is so overrated, right? That brings to mind Draft Dodger Donald, but no need to go into that . . .

    Re: “democrats can an will vote in large numbers for Trump.”
    Sorry, but there is a significant difference between “trying to find a silver lining” and delusions.
