    I disagree with this ruling. While I agree – absolutely – that people are and should be free to record on-duty police, I cannot support couching it in the First Amendment.

    I’ve read the First several times – memorized it, in fact – yet, for the life of me, I cannot remember the part where it talks about recording people on your cell phone.

    If you want to create a new “right,” you should make a relevant law to that effect not “discover” that right within some irrelevant and, at best, tangentially related right.

    I find that my right against cruel and unusual punishment means I have a right to each funnel cake for breakfast and churros for lunch every day.

    Bah Humbug.

    PS: I find that there are things I want to discuss with you lunatics, but so long as the generalized attitude of SUFA is crapping on the left/liberals/Democrats while ignoring/excusing the current administration, I have no desire to actively participate. If SUFA wants to have a circle-jerk, it can do it without me. To that end, I’ll deposit links and thoughts I think you might appreciate, and I look forward to your thoughts/feedback, but I’ll bide my time living in a fantasy world where Clinton won in a landslide.

      Freedom of the Press my friend. Anyone can be a journalist and publish their works, including the reporting of news. I can, as the Administrator here, report news just as if I were a TV news company. I don’t believe there is a special license that provides for a permit to report the news and activities of our public officials.

      I did not read where the judges stated “Free Speech” in their opinion, just 1st Amendment. Just as the government records people in public, so should the public record them when conducting OUR business.

    • gmanfortruth says:

      What exactly has the current Administration done wrong? The Russian collusion nonsense has been destroyed (by the Liberal media hacks at CNN). Trump and team have and are under constant attack by the Liberal media. Anything the media gets in return is not a wrong doing, it’s payback. I don’t recall you complaining when Obama attacked FOX news. Beyond the worthless Congress and biased media, He’s doing quite well.

      I see many similarities between Reagan and Trump’s first 7 month’s (and more to come) when it comes to how they were treated by the Liberal media, this time it’s far, far worse. Then you have that whacko bitch in the cartoon above who’s chanting “Impeach 45” every chance she get’s, with ZERO wrongdoing that is impeachable. It’s actually sad to see people act like this, does the Liberal media ever say anything negative about it……NO.

      Now, what is wrong in your mind with the current Administration?

    • A question while I think about your argument. Aren’t people allowed to take pictures of anyone in public view, what right is that based on?

      Obviously the Constitution does not need to mention cell phones, or any other modern contrivance, for said to be included in rulings on Constitutional matters. As you and Buck have stated before, there is considerable flexibility in the document to allow for changes over time in how society operates.

      This is where I part ways with some hard core “literal interpreters” of the Constitution.

      The only connection I see to the First is the issue of speech. Assume no cell phones or cameras. Would not people observing police brutality be FREE TO SPEAK, as it were, publicly about what they saw? So then with the advent of technology, would not taking photos and recordings be a logical extension of their ability to speak freely?

      Now with that said, I have a problem with the court establishing the connection relative to this case. Because the First Amendment restricts the establishment of laws impeding upon certain rights. Since there was no “law” prohibiting filming of police there is no First Amendment challenge in my view. The legal issue should have been as it was made. That the police officers violated known “rights” previously announced as well as “known and established policy”.

      In short, the judges should have allowed the law suit to stand against the individual police. They clearly violated what was established policy. Said policy being made because of prior court rulings on the matter. As I recall, some of these prior rulings did involve local or State laws prohibiting filming.

      I have far greater heartburn over the idea that the Courts have created an exception for police when it comes to their liability regarding violation of our rights. That being if it is not somehow codified in the Constitution in particular.

      Remember, those rights not contained in the document are retained to the States or the people. The Constitution is not the end authority on what is a Right and what is not.

    • Don’t you think that has been the problem for the past several decades? Legislating from the bench? You have several attorney’s in your family…..ask them their opinons. Is the Constitution so open, in their mind, that it allows broad interpretations that actually create law, instead of rendering a decision in STRICT interpretation? I had a professor tell me that to write a contract that covers every conceivable approach….it would stretch around the world three times. I do not think that you can have a subjective law.

      But, what strikes me in your article, is how many liberal bench’s agreed.

      JAC says. “Remember, those rights not contained in the document are retained to the States or the people. The Constitution is not the end authority on what is a Right and what is not.” Obviously, he is not a Constitutionalist…..and he is correct to a limited point. It may not be the end authority but It is the framework in which the end authority resides.

      The second part of the article bothers me even more where it pertains to the liability of police officers or anybody, for that matter. I see no problem with making individuals responsible regardless of the position they hold. I have never liked limited liability protections.

        .”and he is correct to a limited point. It may not be the end authority but It is the framework in which the end authority resides.”

        There is NOT a limited point to my comment. Those Rights not identified are withheld by the States and the People. The ultimate arbiter is of course the people. Because it is the people who give the States actual life.

        And what do you think this “framework” is that you refer to, and what is the “end authority”?

        • Just A Citizen says:

          P.S.: My interpretation in fact makes me a “Constitutionalist”. It does not make me someone who takes the words literally as the only source of understanding. Because that is not how the English law nor early Colonial law worked.

          But neither was it this open ended conundrum the “living document” theorists would have every one believe.

          So the real question, from a “Constitutionalist’s” point of view is whether taking photographs an logical and rational extension of speech. Because the Founders did not have the concept of photography, but they certainly knew times would change, and thus SPEECH is that which is connected to the observed and standard form of SPEAKING.

          Now here is one for you. If you fall into the “originalist” camp of interpretation you should consider what it was that the Founders felt was normal when they penned the clause. In this case, the speech that cannot be governed is that speech which is aimed at Govt. and the powerful who run things. They did not envision a world where “pornography” would be protected. And yes, they understood what was pornographic. Although far more “Puritan” in their definition than we would be. The Founders and Framers did not want Govt. being able to stifle POLITICAL SPEECH.

          Even in this context, I see photographs as falling into modern societies means of conducting political speech. They are after all, taking pictures of Govt. agents.

          • Cannot claim to be an “originalist” ( whatever that is )….I would fall in the Constitutionalist interpretation, I think. My point that I was trying in my inept way…..was that you said the following: “The Constitution is not the end authority on what is a Right and what is not.”

            It seems to me, that a strict Constitutionalist wold interpret the Constitution to be the end authority. No other interpretation. Now, I can see your point but it seems to me that when you extend modern day communication to the Constitution…..you just made it a living document. Am I wrong?

            • Therein, lies a slippery slope, does it not? Once you interpret speech by extension, then you do open other definitions by extension. This is a conundrum, I believe.

            • Just A Citizen says:

              d13thecolonel

              No. A Constitutionalist would not view the Constitution as the final arbiter of what is a Right. Because they know it did not list all rights. That is in fact clearly stated within the document itself. So it is ONLY the last arbiter or authority for those Rights listed within it. Otherwise, it is up to the States and The People do establish what is or is not a Right.

              Yes, you are wrong on the living document claim. Remember, there are TWO theories of “living document”. I do support the “original version”. Which, by the way is the one Buck also supports, despite making arguments to support the second. The First is that the document is general in much of its nature and not prescriptive. It does not specify law to the extent that laws would have to be constantly changed, that is the Constitution itself.

              Best example here is once you know what “interstate commerce” was in the document. Then all things that develop over time fitting within that definition would be included. From time to time a SCOTUS review may be needed to decide if some new technology or service fit the definition.

              The second view of “living document” is that the Constitution is flexible enough that the COURT can keep in fresh with respect to Societies changes. Despite the document either being silent on a matter, or even prohibiting something. Such as SCOTUS assigning some Federal authority over “marriage” which did not and still does not exist.

            2nd attempt at posting, because gman is a fascist! 🙂

            —————————–

            When I was a younger man, I could go to the more.. ethnic.. areas of LA and find a churro vendor on pretty much every street corner. Like the dirty-water hot dog vendors in NYC. But they seem to have all gone the way of the dodo, and, anyway, I’m not in LA anymore.

            It was with this weighing heavily on my soul that I traveled to Mexico a few years back. I was saddened to find a dearth of churros even in the native land of the churro! Oh lamentations!

            It was at this point that, driving in El Medio de Ninguna Parte, Jallisco, I passed a van.

            This was the kind of van you warn your children to stay clear of. The kind of van that might be spray painted with “Free Candy” and stationed too near a children’s park. It was old and rusty, and parked – as I said – in the middle of nowhere.

            But rather than “Free Candy,” the van was spray painted with a different word. A word of immense power and magnetism – something far more alluring. Forgotten of bygone times sailors would have believed it to be a siren song. The word of my heart’s one true desire: “Churros,” it read.

            Pulling over, I discovered a old steel 40 gallon oil drum. No doubt it did once hold crude oil, but today it held instead a poorly defined oil that was most probably a distant relation of cooking oil – though, by the looks of it, that relation was “neolithic ancestor.”

            Below the drum was a burner of some sort – fuel unknown. Best left to “don’t ask, don’t tell,” I adjudged that ignorance was bliss.

            Next to the drum though… next to it… well, there was a meat grinder. To look upon the thing, you would have little doubt (especially considering its haggard and toothless operator) that it had played a pivotal role in the unsolved disappearances of a few young women who had made the mistake of being drawn in by that siren lure of the roadside churro.

            For ten pesos, about a dollar at the time, he offered me three churros. Had I known what was to come, I would have gladly offered him my life savings. I would have offered him my home, my car, all of my future earnings, and more. I would have paid with my very blood.

            I placed the pesos into his withered hand, and he smiled a vaguely sinister toothless grin, then turned his attention to the oil drum.

            As he turned the flame higher – the caustic smoke of which was doing nothing to improve the sensation that I had just made a compact with some kind of churro-selling crossroads demon – he pressed dough (or what I presume to be dough, it is hard to be certain) into the grinder. The not-quite-cooking-oil began to boil. The hot oil splash the Churro Man, but he seemed oblivious to fact. Slowly, he began to turn the grinder’s crank.

            In the distance, the sound of drums became audible – carried by the wind. From where? From when? I know not.

            Time passed and reality melted into eldritch horror to the strains of La Macarena coming from a nearby road-killed armadillo. As a raven pecked at its eyes, it persisted in ominously signing the Spanish-language pop song of a girl who gives her body over to happiness.

            Dale a tu cuerpo alegria, Macarena……….

            How much time passed? I cannot say. I know only that I had grown a significant amount of stubble between my order and the time when the stranger presented me with three small churros.

            In the desert glare, I had never before set my eyes upon anything more beautiful.

            I knew then how Sub-Saharan travelers must have felt when coming upon a oasis. Or trans-Atlantic explorers hearing at long last the cry of “land-ho.” Not even the first sight of my newborn daughter had prepared me for that moment of perfect beauty.

            I wept like a child. Rivers flowing down my cheeks. I sobbed with an innocence I have not known since the long-ago days of my youth.

            As my tears instantly dissolved into the cracked pavement, I placed the first churro in my mouth, and in that moment, I came to know the true face of love.

            I do not know what happened next, for rational thought had long since deserted me. I stared into my empty hands – the three churros – a gift from ancient pagan Gods – now only a memory. In this moment, I understood fully the nature of “chasing the dragon” – the idea that an opium addict may spend the entire rest of their lives in pursuit of the high of their first experience.

            The sounds of the drum – when had it become so deafening? – faded on the wind as it had come.

            Tears streaming down my face, the flesh of my knees burning on the scortched earth, I reached into my pocket to withdraw more pesos that I might buy yet more of the life-giving churros. I held out my trembling hand to the old man – or was it an old crone? Did he have cloven feet? The head of a jaguar? I cannot recall. I do not care.

            I reached out to him – the Churro Man – the mysterious purveyor of desert churros – a silent prayer on my lips, unable to even raise my eyes meet his gaze. But his hand did not reach out to accept my coin.

            At last I looked to find… nothing.

            The Churro Man was gone. The van, the drum, the fire, all gone. Had they fled while I ate? had they simply vanished into acrid smoke? Had they never been there in the first place? I still do not know.

            I still travel that road every year – but I have never caught another sight oh him. I scan for the rusted van – or had it been an Aztec pyramid – the memory is unclear. Nonetheless, with each pass, I find nothing but miles of empty sand.

            I carry with me always a 10-peso coin. Just in case. In case he returns to me, I must be ready.

            Ready for the the Churro Man.

            I know now why the ancients buried their dead with coins on their eyes. We foolishly believed that they must pay the ferry man to cross the river Styx,, or that the coin brings them good fortune in their next life. But I know what the world has forgotten.

            Once, long ago, the immoral Chuuro Man visited these bygone worlds. He accepted their coin, their shekels, their drachmas, their nameless ad forgotten currencies, and he gave to them a gift for which they had no words. Those who partook understood as I now understand. They carried their coin with them for the rest of their lives, and even into death – because maybe, just maybe, the Churro Man may be waiting for us on the other side.

            • YOu must have worked long and hard on this one…..VERY good, sir…..very good. With your kind permission, and no commission other than being my friend, I would very much like to copy this . Your writing is superb.

              Until then…….you reminded me of a road trip that I took not long ago on the back roads of Mississippi……a mom and pop diner on the side of the road run by a black couple…..pretty much in the middle of here and yon. BUT,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,they cooked with lard out of a three gallon can and a large wooden spoon and a huge flat griddle. They cooked my breakfast… eggs, grits, ham slice ( bone in ) all in the same grease. There is nothing like the sizzle of cooking on a flat griddle where the grease is collected in a glass jar to be used again. Fresh buttered bread ( real stuff, not yuppie butter ) thrown onto the griddle just before the rest came off…..lightly toasted and dripping. Nothing but slat and pepper……no Cholula, Tobasco, or anything else to ruin the taste of cholesterol producing, artery clogging home cooking. Fresh sun tea, no sugar of course…..and after breakfast a piece of homemade, with real lard and cherries, cherry pie….and not to be ruined with ice cream….no ala mode crap to dump on hot cherry pie. That is blasphemous! ( You can have a la mode after BBQ but not with eggs, grits, hame slice and red eye).

              Perhaps we can meet up with Curros Man and Yo Yo Man at the same time. What a combo.

      Sir….This should have by rights been “couched” under the Constitution and was a correct ruling. The police are all being armed with cameras either on their body or in their cars or from CCTV or the sky to record the events to “defend” their actions good bad or otherwise. Are the people not allowed to offer a counter argument if needed?. Funny how so many documents seem to disappear, get destroyed, sideshuffled, offuscated to hide misdeeds lawlessness…..across the board with NO party deliniation.

      I’m awaiting the courts to revisit their earlier ruling about warrantless searches and gathering ALL information on everyone electronically. The SCOTUS ruled its OK because it was not specific in the Constitution. Rifling through anything that leaves your immediate possession. To open MAIL requires a warrant signed off by the courts based on probable cause. Technology changed and people do not use snailmail but rarely. But the government can go a snag anything on servers. Heck, phone on you are tracked and recorded via gps/tower coordinates. A few years ago a bank robber went on a spree across the south. he was caught and by checking his phone the “recorded” coordinates proved he was in each of the robbery locations at the exact times. In fact that is how I think that is how they caught him. Dumb crook,,,should have popped his battery

      Remember how pissed off Diane Feinstein was when it was revealed that the NSA etal were gathering “their” information, conversations, emails etc. When congress passed the Patriot Act, now in the closing days of it’s 2nd decade has gotten worse…..obviously Congress when passed the law never considered the “who me” factor. They thought they were exempt just like everything else they pass. , . .

      Please explain YOUR reasoning that taking pictures of police is not covered by the first amendment, or any other for that matter.

    • Just A Citizen says:

      Good grief.

        Good point JAC. Without free speech, a free press would cease to exist. The I ternet has changed what we call a “free press” because news is being reported by so many, rather than the local tv/radio/newspaper companies that had monopolized the press in the past.

        I’m short, free speech has opened the door to a truly free press. The biased media is being exposed and have lost the ability to control the message, much like recording police takes their ability to control the message/facts.

        The importance of free speech can’t be overstated.

    • I took the time to read the test question in the article. As an old man with many experiences in my life with people who had peculiar sexual peccadillos, I gotta say there is NO WAY this prof was NOT getting his rocks off with this question. I can think of many ways to elicit discussion on the supposed issue by using actual medical events that would not have bordered on salacious. Actually, I think he went OVER the border.

    This falls inline with things I have read.

    Rep. Rick Nolan: Well, both parties have told newly elected members of the Congress that they should spend 30 hours a week in the Republican and Democratic call centers across the street from the Congress, dialing for dollars.

    Norah O’Donnell: Thirty hours a week?

    Rep. Rick Nolan: Thirty hours is what they tell you you should spend. And it’s discouraging good people from running for public office. I could give you names of people who’ve said, “You know, I’d like to go to Washington and help fix problems, but I don’t want to go to Washington and become a mid-level telemarketer, dialing for dollars, for crying out loud.”

    This is utterly shameful, and if I end up getting elected I will never do it. In fact, I will push legislation to ban this practice.

    Former U.S. Representative David Jolly was also interviewed by O’Donnell, and he admitted to her that Republican members of Congress are actually given a telemarketing script to use while making these calls…

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/russian-lawyer-who-met-trump-jr-i-didn-t-have-n781631

    Watched CNN last night. It was hilarious watching them try to continue the guilt by innuendo while not falling deep into the trap as they have the past few months. They used guests to do most of the accusing and hyperbole. One guest, however, kept saying there is no hard evidence of any wrong doing as yet. CNN’s whole drama is over the fact that Trump’s people keep saying they never met with any Russians then we find out they have, then they say “Oh yeah, that meeting”, on and on. Of course they left out the part where in each of these cases NOTHING was found of importance.

    One pundit summed up the issue nicely. It is a controversy of the Trump campaign and now administration’s own making. If they had the experience needed they would have snuffed this whole thing out long ago. It is creating a distraction that is making Mr. Trump angry but it is self inflicted. They need good political legal people to dig into everyone and get the records cleaned up ASAP.

    Nobody considered that maybe Mr. Trump is not really that angry because it feeds into discrediting the media.

    Oh, one other guest, an ex KGB spy in the US said that this whole affair has got to have Putin thinking, “damn, this is working better than I thought possible”. Because the Russian goal is to create mistrust among the people in the Govt. and in our systems. To that end, the DNC and the leakers are playing right into their hands. As are the people in the Administration who haven’t acted to get this issue put to bed.

    Excuse my rant, but I’ve seen and read so much bullshit from the Left it is warranted.

    These piece of shit, childish little brat snowflakes on the Left need to grow the fuck up and act like adults. All this Russia nonsense when it’s already clearly proven that the ONLY person that can be found in collusion with Russia is HRC.

    All the call for prosecution by these petulant spoiled brats is a prime example of a very poor education system, because their calls show their complete idiocy on the matter. In short, they are fucking idiots.

    To Buck and Mathius: These are folks on your side of the political spectrum, but it is not the majority of Liberal acting this way. But when it comes from the mouths of Democrat representatives, highly visible media people and activist’s, it’s a disgrace to America and American politics (which is already totally corrupt, EXCEPT TRUMP). I do feel bad for both of you, but in no way do you appear to be part of this group of radical Marxist activist’s.

    End of rant, you may return to your normal schedule now 😀

      Still waiting for the outcry about Senator Ted Kennedy colluding with the Soviet Union in an attempt to defeat Reagan in ‘84 and Bill Clinton colluding with the Chinese in ‘96.

        As Hillary routinely would say…”That’s old news”

        Didn’t the “proven” conduit of Communist Chinese government money to the Clinton’s wind up DEAD? HRC years ago wanted to learn more about Wall Street trading. She learned with the head of Tyson Foods standing over her shoulder. During her first lesson she made hundreds of thousands of dollars, trading. Tyson ultimately was found by the government with his “teaching”, paid dearly for that. The Clinton’s skated. Same with Whitewater, everyone including the Arkansas Lt Gov went to prison over this financing scheme, yet HRC as the lead lawyer of the firm and the account went untouched. She was 1st lady by that time. All the papers and documents the Special Prosecutor was seeking had disappeared. Upon the statute of limitations expiration, the Clintons called Janet Reno up and said come and get the papers in the “private” quarters of the WH. Reno went on to say at a news conference later that due to the expiration of time being able to prosecute this type of crime, the papers and their content will not be released, they are moot. To me by the WH hiding supoena’d (sp) documents that puts on hold all statute of limitation restrictions and they should heve been charged with at least “obstruction of Justice”

        All prior events of illicit fund raising before, during WJC’s presidency were just perfecting a system of corruption. Unless stopped this will be used by any president and legislator to enrich themselves before, during and after their tenures in office.

        I like the bill that was vetoed by Obama stopping or limiting the former presidents pension $/$ if they earn more than $400K. That bill is being resurrected.

          Regardless of the Kennedy’s payoff to the Kopekne (sp) family, he still should have been prosecuted. But in MA, Kennedy’s were god’s.

          The government should in all places remove their statues of justice being “blindfolded” and holding balancing scales, signifying equal justice for all,

    This is a question for the worldly economists and business people on this site. I truly understand as time goes on and we invent more labor saving tools and devices we need less people to do the same task previously. Farming is a prime example. Manufacturing another, computerization leading to kiosks, buying tickets, information etc. Do more with less and that’s a reference to people. I’ll take Europe as an example. They are not immune to these efficiency inprovements. They clearly have responded by having less offspring to the point of not replacing themselves. A dying civilization? No just responding to the needs of the society. The massive unemployment of the younger generation points to that, because the older ones still hold the jobs. As even they retire earlier and earlier it does not help the unemployment problem, due to again efficiency gains and outsourcing etc. If less people in the neear future they’ll need less benefits in the bank.etc. Why bring in millions of uneducated, illiterate and unassimulated people into the system? They are mostly unemployable, can not communicate with the population at large, pay little or NO taxes into the system and absorb huge amounts of what revenue is brought in by those that do work……why? the jobs that can not be outsourced or automated are the SHIT jobs like cleaning toilets….could the immigrant model being pursued actually be to create a new serf and slave class? With the elites sitting at the top while these people clean out their chamberpots.

  16. D13 still on record……I do not subscribe to the theory of something is better than nothing on health care. I reject the Senate proposal. Let Obamacare implode. I do not subscribe to leaving Obamacare taxes in and then reducing the corporate tax to compensate. Do not give on on the Obamacare taxes…..don’t repeal it if you want but take all the taxes out. I still say, let Obamacare impload…it will directly affect me but I don’t care. BOOM!!!!!

    Tax reform is a separate issue and should not be tied to any health program.

    Also, Republicans…..pull your heads out of your collective asses. The sky is blue and not that crappy color you seem to enjoy…..Reducing the future increases to smaller increases….IS NOT A TAX CUT, you dumb sons O’ b’s……do not let the left hijack this….fire back with both barrels you incompetent cowards. Start swining.

    • gmanfortruth says:

      Repeal with no new law. They have no business interfering in the healthcare industry, none.

    • How long do you think it will take for it to implode, and what is the plan when it does? For the record, I don’t like the idea of a watered down version either.

      • Dale A. Albrecht says:

        It was designed to fail from day one. Obama flat out said that it was not what he wanted, yet it was designed and passed 100% by democrats, inspite of the vast majority of the people objecting. He wanted a single payer system like medicare across the board. We see how efficient and well managers those current systems are.(sarc)

        Bottom line a single payer system will go in on the demand of the people. Let’s be honest people have bought into heaven on earth and are entitled to immortality now not later, regardless of the costs to others. Greed is driving the system. A community would have collapsed long ago with this behavior. A family would have collapsed long ago. The only reason it survives today is the ever expanding debt and the ability for governments to create faux money. Not long ago societies would have let their sick and elderly go and in native cultures exposed them. They would not have destroyed their society for the sake of a few growing to many and a greater unaffordable burden. If people became more personally responsible for the REAL finances involved, the system and society would heal itself real quick. Cold and seemingly cruel but it will happen. Look at just a little over two decades ago with the collapse of the USSR and what affect it had on the life expectancy and health of the society in that nation.

      • It is imploading now…..premiums are going through the roof, there are some states with only one carrier, deductibles are at record levels. People are dropping out of the system now. Medicare cannot sustain it…..and even if we went to 90% tax rate…..the gurus have already said it would not sustain even that. I have been in the V A system and on Medicare now…..trust me…..you do not want the government running it. THey could screw up a one car funeral.

        • Dale A. Albrecht says:

          I know that. Life is cruel. I believe that we will take one more step by popular demand towards what has been proven time and time again.a failure and then we will start over.

          After the collapse of the communist system in Poland, I got the opportunity to meet a nice young Polish economist. She basically talked about Margaret Thatchers phrase about socialism is great until the other peoples money runs out.

          Look at what countries the “refugees/migrants/invaders” flee and avoid…..it’s those countries that have learned the economic lessons the hard way and offer little in the way of benefits.
          Man is actually quite a weak animal except for its brain and ability to change the environment it lives in. By that we are also weakening its gene pool, “out of compassion” and “Social Justice” almost quaranteeing it’s own extinction, by allowing the weak to survive and reproduce where in most cases of nature would cull them out. Man is actually an annomaly (sp) and the anti-thesis to the natural order of life on earth. We use the statement about academics that they are so smart they are stupid, that applies not to them alone. We think to much and actually never solve the REAL problems that confront us.

          Slightly different topic, but the rationalization is the same. Some commentators have been saying that Obama and his ilk is bored etc, The advice was to give them something to actually worry about and keep them busy. Like putting them on the defensive about their misdeeds etc. The present regime except a few are reluctant to do so, in the hopes that they will get a pass in the future for their conduct. Fat chance. Al Gore was bored and looking for something to do and when he awoke and brought us Global Warming and climate change which will in all probability make him the 1st climate change billionaire and in the long run do more damage than good to the environment, by expanding the footprint of energy generaton instead of centralizing it…..do gooders usually are bored and do not have enough serious things to worry about.

    What give, gman! Un-spam me!

    • Must be a conspiracy. I am not part of it….no sir….innocent….not guilty….

      Mathius

      You didn’t go to spam. It went to the trash can directly. Don’t feel bad, SK had three go there over the last two months. No explanation.

      I assume you don’t want the one in the trash posted, since it appears to be a duplicate. Let me know, because I have not permanently deleted it yet.

  19. Gman…..I think I got it in moderation. I saved it, if it is not there.
