There is way too much to be revealed in discovery, and they will have really tough time finding a jury. The officers will be offered nice plea deals, do a minimum amount of time, and their cases like all the others will vanish down the memory hole.
As we used to say about the level of unrest…gonna be a long hot summer.
I am profoundly grateful that Governor Newsom has seen fit to declare cannabis delivery an essential service. I order online, pay with a credit card, and within an hour or so, I got weed!

That was my world as a young teen. Saw Little Richard when he was the musical act a Car Show in Denver. That would have been late sixties, and I was around 14.
Looking back, Denver was a great place to be for music. I saw so many big names–oftentimes before they were that big–at so many smaller intimate venues. In fact my very first date–mom…[Read more]

Phone rings, I answer. Guy from HRC starts fundraising spiel. I say “I’m driving right now. Please give me a call back in about 40 minutes”. Then the guy wants to argue with me. “Can’t you pull over?”
At this point I’m in very tight traffic in the #3 lane on a 7 lane wide freeway. It would take a good ten minutes to make my way over to the…[Read more]

The answer is no and yes. I posted this as an example of the Dems’ desperate vote-shaming.

Mindpilot — We feel so bad about this…
Michelle Obama just opened up and spoke about how DISAPPOINTED she is that more Democrats didn’t show up to vote in 2016:
We’ve never felt so ashamed in our entire lives!!
But Michelle Obama didn’t stop there — she explained why it’s so traumatic for her to see Democrats sit out crucial elections. Just…[Read more]

They will happily submit to “groin area searches” and whatever other unnecessary humiliation because they think they are being protected from a terrorist attack…a virtually non-existent threat. But wearing a mask to protect yourself and others from a very clear and present danger that is literally killing thousands of Americans every day is…[Read more]

With no Jesse or Howie, it was more like a late-night dorm room discussion. Smart people with good ideas, but way too focused on minutiae…not big picture people at all. They basically fulfill the stereotype of the Green Party.

I was just over at SV and I suspect that is a fair example of the party’s position. The whole story is a complete fabrication, Tara Reade is being financed and supported by Russia, Reade is not credible, and this is a berniebro-led dirty tricks operation to discredit Biden. Biden who of course in their eyes is the most perfect Democrat…[Read more]
I’m OK. I can isolate at home for a while. My son has the upstairs–he’s 42–and does all the going out to gather supplies. The idea of supporting the destruction of an entire group of people–because economics–has no place here.
It is not just the elder populations being sacrificed. I saw a news item today that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has…[Read more]
We have a clear choice between “don’t change horses in mid-stream” and “nothing will fundamentally change”. This time we don’t even get to hope for some change.
The best we can do is enough of us withhold our votes in a such a way that the Dems are dissuaded of the idea that we owe them our votes. I ain’t holdin’ my breath.

Holy fucking shit that is absolutely terrifying. I’ve been completely had, hoodwinked, hornswaggled. I had no idea that deserts were being clear cut for solar arrays.

I’m so done with the vote-shaming. Somehow not voting for A, means a vote for B even though I actually voted for C. Votes are not quantum. They have only one state, and that is “yes” for the candidate you voted FOR. Nor is voting for someone who can’t possibly win, “throwing it away”.
I recall that night in 2008, wife and I driving to Vegas for…[Read more]
There is a “protest” planned today in San Diego. I just tweeted the mayor, PD, and sheriff that allowing the protest to go forward would demonstrate to the people of SD that they value the rights of right wing nutballs to publicly spout bullshit over the right of the rest of us who live here to continue to do so.
