    Sorry, but you’re wrong. I have been a Libertarian since 1978, been a state committeeman five times, run for office as a Libertarian. Sarvis may not be perfect, but he is definitely more pro-freedom and Pro-Liberty than Cuccinelli and that’s good enough. Sarvis may not be able to win but clearly, neither can Cuccinelli. At least if you vote for Sarvis and he gets 10% or more of the vote, the Libertarians get major party status. That means more Libertarians on the balllot, easier fundraising and that status holds for all state level offices until 2021. You don’t think creating a legitimate, lasting competitive force to take on the two party monopoly isn’t a good way to “spend” your vote? Not voting for Sarvis is voting to keep the same broken system going forward.

    To be clear, I didn’t say it was the victims fault. I merely said that the prosecutors and the media painted these victims as innocent youngsters who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. That is NOT supported by evidence in the prosecutors own investigation. It wasn’t brought out at trial because the defense attorneys, by introducing evidence of prior association, would have trouble proceeding with the “my client wasn’t involved” defense, which is what they pretty much had no choice but to go with. NOTHING justifies doing this to another human being, but by the same token, what do we always tell our kids: “Don’t go looking for trouble”.
    As to the evidence that was given on toxicology, all that proved was Channon hadn’t done any drugs within a very recent time period of her death. It didn’t address the larger issue. As to whether or not I have any facts on this, they’re all public record, buried deeply and grudgingly released, but there if you know how to look for them.

    THIS is a better, cleaner example for Glenn to use to contrast the Trayvon Martin case:

    As horrible as this story is – and it IS horrible – there is truth here that Glenn needs to be aware of. The case was rushed through the courts and downplayed by the powers that be in large part because the prosecutors were concerned that if the entire truth were known, they might not get a conviction. Glenn’s coverage of this misses this point as well. Channon was not this poor innocent girl who got carjacked and met this horrific end through no fault of her own: She was a drug user who was a customer of one of the killers, who had traded sex for drugs with him on previous occasions. She wasn’t carjacked to the house of horrors as prosecutors wanted people to believe, she and Christopher DROVE to that house of their own free will, probably to get drugs. Prosecutors KNOW that.
    This isn’t a case of wrong place, wrong time: This is a case of there never being a right time to be in the wrong place.

    So, do you think the Southern Poverty Law Center will now identify Alice Walker’s fan club as a hate group?

    Stupid kid, stupid thing to post, no question.

    NOWHERE near as stupid as the Texas law enforcement and criminal justice system that has escalated this farce to outrageous levels. The judge who issued that warrant and set a half million dollar bond should be impeached.

    Jumped up Jewels, Glenn, THIS is state you think the future of America rests on?

    No apology necessary. That’s the problem here – you can’t speak the truth anymore.

    Everything that’s wrong with this country can be compressed down to the parents reactions in this case. In my day, If I’d pulled this stunt, I would have been looking at reform school and my parents would have been looking at criminal charges for failure to properly supervise a minor, not to mention one hellacious civil suit….

    I am far more concerned about the fascists holding power in Washington DC than I am about a broken down wreck of a 94 year old man who MAY, JUST POSSIBLY have had SOMETHING to do with Nazi war crimes. I’m not worried about the camps that are closed. I’m worried about the ones they want to open.

    Except that he’s lying to us and he knows it. NSA employees have already admitted to eavesdropping on intimate phone calls from American servicemen to their wives and girlfriends for cheap thrills.

    We already have mad a choice as a society, Barack. We made it when we wrote the Bill of Rights.

    Look, we all looked at stories about Nazi Germany in school and said “Well, If I’d been there, I wouldn’t have rolled over. I would have been part of the resistance, I would have fought the fascists to the death.” It seems we might get a chance to prove our brave words and thoughts.
    Our Grandfathers were willing to die to preserve liberty and freedom on 6/6/44. Are we as willing on 6/6/13?

    You know, there used to be a Civilization on Mars, until capitalists cornered the market on toilet paper and all the martians died in a horrible colon explosion… :)

    You are a troll. A simple Google search of Columbia Alumni from Iowawill expose you as an ignoramus. If Columbia doesn’t want to abide by the terms of the will, I’m pretty sure there is an “If/Then” clause that assigns an alternative beneficiary for the funds.

    That’s true. There were however widespread rapes of Japanese women during the occupation that went unprosecuted.

    And with this, the first and second amendment, always symbiotic in nature, merge to become one.

  • May 7, 2013 at 10:53am

    The argument that gun control is simply limitations on the Second Amendment, just like there are limitations on free speech, is absolutely incorrect. You DO have a right under the first amendment to shout “fire” in a crowded theatre or to commit slander or any of the other ridiculous examples they use. The fact is, however, that if you do so, our society provides legal and civil remedies for your poor choices in doing so. There is no prior restraint, outside of common sense and self-control. There is only personal responsibility if you engage in irresponsible exercise of your rights. Thus it is with the second amendment. You have an absolute right to arm yourself. If you exercise that right irresponsibly, you will have to pay the price. What the left wants with gun control is PRIOR RESTRAINT. This is akin to your having to have a government permit to have an internet connection or a desktop printer, to having to show you have a “need” for a printing press or to show that you are responsible before allowing you to post a web page. If they are successful in crippling the second amendment, there is no doubt the first amendment will be next.

    Darned skippy. As one of my friends likes to point out everyone wearing a badge willing to follow the orders of the new tyranny because it gives them job security, power or security needs to keep one important question in mind: There are a lot of people out here willing to die for Liberty. Are you really prepared to die for tyranny?

    Exactly: Note that he was compliant as soon as he was sprayed. So why the mask? Why the extreme concentration at close range? Why the taunting and bullying and brutality?
    COs in Maine are union employees and make almost twice what the average Maine worker makes in compensation and benefits and earn a phenomenal amount of overtime. This guy is paid pretty well “to put up with” the stuff you use as an excuse for his barbaric behavior. We PAY him to be detached, professional and sane. Sadly, it looks like we’ll be continuing to overpay this guy as well.

    It shames me to be from Maine that this incident occurred. It shames me more that stuff like this goes on in Maine prisons quite frequently and just doesn’t see the light of day. The fact that this guard engaged in a torture incident (and there is no other word for it) and that our Commissioner of Corrections has allowed him to keep his job, an action supported by our supposedly pro-liberty Governor means that there is no way I will support this Governor for re-election. What’s gut wrenchingly sickening is that the event isn’t being investigated because of the abuse, but because someone, clearly concerned about the abuse of government power, leaked the video. It’s not wrong that we’re acting like a police state, it’s just wrong that we let people know the truth?
    Wake up people: It’s easy and ignorant to say “well, they’re criminals, they deserve it.” Given the trajectory this country is on and how soon we’re likely to find our sons and daughters – maybe ourselves – locked up for purely political offenses, is that really the dynamic that you want to empower?
