Another day, another disgrace.

France WAS defeated in WWII, partly because the US refused to get involved, mind you, their partisans were a vital part of the eventual victory.

I'm glad he kept his mind till the end, and enough of his health that he was able to do what he did.  I am not personally that crazy about his artistic vision, but I admire that he was able to spread it as widely as he did.

Those bundles were found to be unenforceable, so if he plans on defaulting on the mortgage it could be good for him personally.

Nothing would distract the Senate, because getting a reliable conservative on the bench was all that mattered

Or a conservative at any rate. I don't know how reliable. His decisions might not reliably help them; If he helps the court deliver a decision that presidential pardons extend to the state level it will help them in the short run but potentially undermine states' rights and thus hurt them in the long run (except when it comes to pot). And he might not be there too long; surely he's likely to have some kind of liver problem in the works.

I'm REALLY hoping we get a leftist president who takes full advantage of that pardoning power.  Just decides that vice crimes aren't actually crimes any longer and pardons all the drug dealers and whores, makes it clear that they're on the unions side and will pardon anyone charged with criminal striking, so on and so forth.

Of course, "Initial, Short Christian Name, Longer Surname" works too.

L. Ron Hubbard
F. Scott Fitzgerald.

L. Ron Riverdell?

My middle name is actually Lee. So I was looking into ways to make this work, since it's such a common, hardcore English middle name. It worked for R. Lee Ermey.

A. Lee Breckenridge or some shit.

I'd shorten the last name, so like A. Lee Brockford or something

Anyone want to offer odds on Kavanaugh being confirmed?

from the article

Outside court, Manafort attorney Kevin Downing said it was a "tough day" for his client, "but he's accepted responsibility, and he wanted to make sure that his family was able to remain safe and live a good life."

I feel like he has put his family in danger.  Since testifying against organized crime tends to get your family killed.  Admittedly Trump is pretty disorganized. Putin seems quite ready to clean up loose ends though.

UK shouldn't really get a vote should they?  They are quitting the union.

This one is for the technical discussion, the other one is for political stuff...

That's not filling his diapers. It's campaigning for the midterms with impeachment as a wedge issue. Democrats should be doing it too.  "If Trump doesn't get impeached it's because you stayed home on election day!"

Internal affairs.  A police procedural following the adventures of an internal affairs division at a major city police department. They uncover terrible corruption that costs lives and gets people wrongly imprisoned while bending the rules in ways that would turn out awful in real life.  One should be a sociopath, another cheerfully corrupt.

The character that gets the most screen time is an idealistic officer that just made IA.  He's on a crusade to clean up some piece of corruption that turns out to be a neccessary counterweight to something worse.  As the show goes on he does more and more inexcusable things until he's a complete monster by the end.

The only thing that keeps convincing me to vote Democrat is Republicans. I think that means the two man con is working on me.
