So you want Drumph's hand on it? Luckily for us his hands are too tiny to press the button.

This is my prediction, too. Suppose she drops out and the new candidate is Sanders. Most of the ballots are still going to say Clinton. I can see two likely alternatives, assuming the Democrats beat Trump overall:
(1) Clinton’s pledged electors have to vote for her at the Electoral College. Thus there is no majority for one candidate. The House of Representatives elects Trump as President, but the electoral college did elect Kaine VP by a majority, so he stays.
(2) Hillary gets elected but drops out post-election. In this case, the 20th Amendment gives Congress the power to decide what gets done about filling her place before either the electoral college or the House votes for a president. (The 20th has been in place since 1933, but Congress has never bothered to use the power it gives them to decide this question — so the door is wide open for either the lame-duck Congress or the new Congress to do something wild.)

These cases are nearly all open-and-shut “innocent” verdicts even when the officer is guilty as hell.
So I can’t believe this chief was anything but. Thank God he finally got caught, even if he’s too cowardly to face a judge here on earth.

I liked Sonny’s swan song… “WATCH OUT FOR THAT TREE!!!”

How about a follow-up a year after the election, showing who moved and who didn’t? And a similar report on those who said the same before past elections? (I seem to recall that Oprah was one.)

All they’d have to do is remind him why they fired Curt Schilling.

He is a bigger and better-financed version of Al Sharpton. With lies even bigger and better than Tawana Brawley.

A few cops are racist against blacks. But most cops who use excessive force will do it to people of any race; the difference being that whites mostly know better than to argue with an angry cop.

I’m glad to hear that there’s at least some chance one of the four officers who murdered him may face a penalty. I thought that had been ruled out earlier.
But unless and until that publicly happens, the bottom line is unfortunately the same as it was immediately after the incident: The next Eric Garner has no choice but to shoot first if he wants to stay alive.
Or you know, he could not break the law and when caught, not resist arrest.
Naaaaaa, that's just crazy talk. He's black so he gets to break the law with no consequences, right?

Good. I’m glad to see somebody enforcing this law. A lot more lives are at stake than from a drunk car driver.

Forget police reform while that stuff’s going on. Anytime somebody is burning homes or cars, the police should be shooting to kill. And if they won’t, the victims should be — and any law that says they can’t needs to go away. The right to property is more important than the lives of thugs.

Schilling is my kind of celebrity. And he’d win! I’d rather have him in Congress than the likes of Al Franken any day.

Each kid’s parents are entitled to decide for themselves what help to give and when.
You are correct. They are also free to take their child to a different HS if they do not like this one. It is a private school which most likely requires the parents to pay a tuition. If you want to coddle your child, take him to the local public school where he will most likely be passed on through whether he gets an education or not.

It should be allowed. Each kid’s parents are entitled to make this decision themselves.
And schooling needs to be left to the teachers. Bravo to the school. Maybe the kids won't rely so heavily on their parents for things they can do themselves.

I’ve seen lots better ways to get even than this, and I don’t even mean anything harmful. How about a box crammed full of confetti with a spring to send it flying? And maybe some red dye, to give her a Scarlet Letter long enough for the police to nail her.

If it’s true that the person murdered was a Wikileaks source, Assange should have the brains to shut up. No sense letting the enemy know that they hit their target — let them waste time looking farther and farther for the leaker.
Of course, maybe Assange knows this perfectly well and wants the killer to stop BEFORE he/she finds the leaker.

“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.” (US Constitution, Article III, Section 3)
What evidence do we have that Snowden has done any of these things? (Hint: We are not at war with any country, or at least Congress has not declared any; therefore the US doesn’t have any “enemies”, so it would be quite a stretch to charge anybody with treason today.)
Agreed. You can get him on a wide variety of criminal charges, ut treason is a stretch legally. We didn't even charge dirtbags like the Walker spy ring, Ames, or Bradley/Chelsea Manning with treason, because it's so much harder to prove the elements of the offense.
But Snowden's done enough to merit a few decades behind bars even without a treason charge.

Next time post to SeaLion Club. They’re a P2P service that doesn’t censor.
