And he’s still in the way, despite the lie that Joe Biden (some say Kamala Harris) is “president-elect.”
The Christine Blasey Ford saga doesn’t seem to be ending soon. While we await further word from the FBI, here follow some thoughts on her testimony, her various statements, and questions raised during the Senate hearing:
Ford testified that she didn’t know that the Judiciary Committee had offered to send investigators to take her statement, in private, anywhere that she wished. Either she’s not telling the truth or her own lawyers deliberately kept these facts from her, even though Ford’s avowed preference was to not testify in public. Ford has not fired the lawyers, which must mean that she’s okay with their deception, if it was deception. If it was not deception, then she misled the committee, at best. Which is it? It would seem to be malpractice for lawyers to work against the best interest of their client in order to further the interests of their political party. Will there be repercussions for these lawyers?
If we’ve learned anything from the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, it’s this: When you need them, the police may not stand up to protect you or your property. If you own a home, you probably pay your property taxes. If you own a business, you probably pay your business taxes. If it’s required in your city, county, or state, you probably pay income taxes and other taxes as well. As a good citizen, you probably also pay your federal income taxes.
In return, the deal that you may believe exists between you and your various governments is that the taxes you pay will fund anything necessary to ensure a civil society, including the various police forces, which exist to ensure tranquility (to keep the peace), to enforce the law, and to protect life and property. In other words, to protect and serve. To ensure Law and Order.
Or, at least that’s what we all used to believe.

Today, in a 5 to 3 decision, the Supreme Court struck down three of the four provisions of the Arizona Immigration statute, S.B. 1070. Justice Kagan recused herself from the case.
Upheld was the provision that allowed AZ law enforcement officers to check identification to see if persons routinely stopped are in the country legally. Continue reading
The determination for whether our country remains on track to become another country with failed socialized medicine lies in the hands of the Supreme Court. Our healthcare fate especially lays with those attorneys who are arguing the constitutional case and want our exemplary healthcare system to remain in tact, and want Obamacare declared unconstitutional.

A recent news story from south of the border caught my eye. Francisco Silva, a professional clown known by the stage name Tiririca, a candidate for “federal deputy” from Sao Paulo, has been accused by political opponents of not knowing how to read:
“Brazilians seem eager to put a clown in Congress, according to the polls. But the courts are taking a less jovial look at a new report that the comic doesn’t meet a legal requirement that lawmakers be able to read and write.
The Brazilian Constitution mandates that members of Congress must be literate, and prosecutors said Monday they want to force Tiririca — a name that means grumpy in colloquial Portuguese — to disprove the allegations. Otherwise, he could be tossed from office if he wins. Continue reading
