  1. What's new in this club
  2. Hulu's 1619 Project Docuseries Peddles False History: https://reason.com/2023/01/31/hulus-1619-project-docuseries-peddles-false-history/ A quite disturbing attempt by the "1619 Project" to rewrite history, and rewrite it incorrectly.
  3. Tennessee law may well be different. As I said, the last time I looked at this issue was quite a while ago , and it was under Indiana law.
  4. Admittedly I’m not a legal aficionado, but I have no recollection of anyone getting bail on a murder charge. I’m quite certain there have been instances however. Now if I’m understanding correctly these officers are out on bail because the state has a weak case. It begs these questions: 1) There is already a perception of preferential treatment because bail is so rare in murder cases. 2) In his rush to judgment the prosecutor has overplayed his hand. If he presses on and the evidence doesn’t support second degree murder charges and these people walk away from this, people will understandably be outraged. 3) What those officers did was criminal. I don’t know what legal definition their acts fit, but if they walk away from this, aside from being a gross miscarriage of justice it will further erode the folks’ belief in the system. We watched it with our own eyes.
  5. Yes, too bad. I will now have to forego the warm feeling I would have gotten from voting against him.
  6. I haven’t looked at this in a long while. But my understanding is that there is a presumption of no bail in murder cases. It’s up to the defendant to show, in a hearing held for that purpose, that the prosecution’s case is a weak one.
  7. https://apnews.com/article/politics-united-states-government-2022-midterm-elections-donald-trump-jim-banks-e9edabe93b309bf54e76a3ea322382d8 Darn. I never would have voted for Mr. Daniels but he would have made the upcoming race more interesting.
  8. Agreed. But if you read or listen to most reporting on this the race of the LEO's are either mentioned late in the story or not mentioned at all. But if the LEO's happened to be white you can bet their race would have been screamed from the opening headlines....................
  9. Special enforcement groups are rife with this stuff. Nothing wrong with patrolling high crime area harder, but these “SCORPION” units gots ta go!
  10. Been a rough day....2 from 2 different eras of classic TV. RIP https://variety.com/2023/tv/news/cindy-williams-dead-laverne-and-shirley-1235507240/ https://www.cnn.com/2023/01/30/entertainment/lisa-loring-wednesday-addams-dead-intl-scli/index.html
  11. I'm also concerned with the knee jerk/immediate cancellation of the SCORPION unit which will make people feel all warm and fuzzy for a few days until the predictable uptick in crime that will follow due to emboldened criminals.
  12. In light of the recent police beating of Tyre Nichols, SF is left wondering - WTF were the LEO's thinking? Benefit of the doubt - a "perp" (can't say he was a "perp" since there is no evidence to support that) runs after a traffic stop, and is caught, but then you subdue the guy (as humanely as you can) and begin the arrest proceedings. These guys just beat the crap out of him for no reason. (none that SF can see) 5 black LEO's - and SF was taught by the GID actors a loooooong time ago that a black person can't be racist. I'm not buying that one anymore, cause I can't see any other reason these officers did what they did. They were being no different in SF's eyes than any other run of the mill racist pig white guys to a guy that (maybe) deserved nothing more than a ticket or arrest for fleeing on officer. Prove me wrong.
  13. The SCOTUS position basically said that non-union members can have the benefits of membership without paying dues. Human nature being what it is, I figured that would sound the death knell for the public unions. I wasn’t alone. But it hasn’t worked that way … yet. https://www.manhattan-institute.org/disalvo-public-unions-money-members-since-janus-v-afscme
  14. If a SCOTUS decision can't rid this nation of public sector unions what can? A POTUS Executive Order? A law passed by Congress? Good luck with either of those................
  15. I am a bit surprised that public sector unions are still around 4 1/2 yrs. after the SCOTUS decision in Janus v. AFSCME which held that requiring non-members to pay dues was a violation of the 1st Amendment.
  16. https://reason.com/2023/01/26/public-unions-vs-the-public-good/ Yeah, public sector unions are scourge on this country, one of the main blockers to this country becoming better. Even one of the deities of liberal progressives (who love unions), FDR, warned against the power of public sector unions.
  17. College basketball broadcaster Billy Packer dies at 82: https://apnews.com/article/emmy-awards-entertainment-sports-television-magic-johnson-537ff2cc8e99eeece7c14e11dff9c170 Truly an American broadcasting icon. He will be missed.
  18. Social Security Is on the Brink of Collapse. The GOP Won't Touch It.: https://reason.com/2023/01/26/social-security-is-on-the-brink-of-collapse-the-gop-wont-touch-it/ Uni-party to the max.
  19. Biden Wants Schools That Please Politicians, Not Parents: https://reason.com/2023/01/25/biden-wants-schools-that-please-politicians-not-parents/
  20. The KKK's Push for Compulsory Schooling and a Federal Education Department: https://reason.com/2023/01/23/the-kkks-push-for-a-federal-education-department/ An interesting read. That this nation's government schools system was built on the back of racism and anti-Catholicism.
  21. https://reason.com/2023/01/23/donald-trump-and-j-d-vance-say-no-cuts-for-social-security-thats-impossible/ Agreed. Social Security and other federal entitlements are bankrupting this country. They need to all be abolished.
