For a immensely smart guy, he made one mistake… he let his intentions about how he was leaning politically be known way to soon. Politics is very tricky to navigate. They, the politicians, are very paranoid, thin skinned and most lack a sense of humor….. (most lack a sense of humor, the ones that don’t usually are outliers, not to be mistaken for lying out loud, and they are usually considered the best Presidents we had, i.e. Lincoln, heard he was a real hoot, Clinton, Obama, both Roosevelts and Ike. They didn’t necessarily have to be George Carlin, just watched his biopic on HBO, would not have made a great President but he knew that, that’s what made him great, but they could take a joke, while some could deliver them) given that our current political system resembles something like Ukraine, a battlefield, then a consortium for compromise ……so, imagine my surprise, when the most influential man in America voices his opinion on politics, this early. Now, I’m not passing judgement on their morality, the politicians, just on how politics and its political warfare that coincides with reputation ruining repudiation, if you piss off the wrong people, can get under your skin. (That’s a shitload of commas, more to come)
It took no time whatsoever to try and reduce how influential Elon is (he should think about going to the one name like Prince and Madonna and … is it Ye). Politics is extremely divisive….. The story that leaked seems and feels like a lot of bullshit, $250K from a multibillionaire… something is not right about that. I read the story and it’s kinda funny because I always get my massages with my underwear on and they ask me to take them off, could be because those brown stains that came with the underwear. I don’t know. That timing of the leaked story is a doozy. When Elon, or EF Musk or maybe Elon Hutton, you get it, speaks… people listen, not his fault, but with great twitter accounts comes great responsibility, who knows why. It shouldn’t be but it is and, well, this is where we’re at now in history.
Reputations are a lot like my stained underwear, that’s it…no clever quote behind it. Alright, maybe I should finish it, no one person’s is clean. And here’s a quote from another smart guy, lol, driving these atheists crazy, let that one person who has never had a stained underwear throw out the first stone. Something like that. In other words, and back to what I think of Elon’s situation, maybe it’s true but I’ll bet my last clean pair of fruit of looms that it ain’t, at least not the way they’re portraying it.
With abortion seemingly on 9 of a 10 count, people have taken the streets to try and save the Roe v. Wade decision. The conservative court put on its fight gear and is getting ready to take on the protestors, not to mention putting up fences around the building, which, nowadays, seems like a recurring occurrence. Right????, now do those fences designate a land border and can we be deported to crazy America from normal America if we are caught inside those fences. Reminds me of the movie Escape from New York, where they fenced off NYC and people that committed crimes were deported to NYC America from Normal America. While this is all very exciting, I’m old and like the law, in terms of legalities and illegalities, it does beckon another question, are they saying abortions are illegal or are they saying that States can ban the medical procedure, because abortions, by all intent and purpose, is just a medical procedure. Do the States have the right to ban a medical procedure? And does that mean my State can ban treatments or medical procedures for, lets say, incurable diseases or maladies that would be too expensive and put that money into helping the poor, building infrastructure, bettering schools and or maybe making roller coasters all the while forcing people with these diseases and maladies to go to other states to get help and relieving my state of money that would be spent on helping the final moments of the citizens that helped their state to become a better place. Is that right? Can States say which medical procedures are legal and which are illegal without it being a national ban?
Now, I’m not taking sides on the legality of abortion, I’m wondering if the different States can, that’s all. I don’t know that allowing the different States to make decisions on what can be considered a legal medical procedure and what can’t is a smart idea. If one State allows abortions then all states should, unless abortions are deemed illegal across the board, which is where this could be heading. While that is a loss for one political side, ultimately, it will be their biggest win, that’s just my prediction. My only concern is this two Americas scenario that keeps popping up, which seems to putting a strain on the unity of this country… man, where are those damn Martians when you need them, is becoming violent with protests and insurrections instead of just waiting for the day to vote and casting your ballot, like it should be. This country, I guess a lot like a lot of other countries, seems to be in constant conflict because they fear that they might just be happy if they weren’t and who wants that. It would be nice if it just was over a sports team because politics is extremely divisive, but you can’t always get what you want.
In my opinion, abortions will eventually be codified into law, because most people are in favor of it. Abortions are more of a moral question, especially with the older crowd, I’m not calling the Justices old, then a legal one, that’s why I’m surprised by the supposed decision. Small victories can lead to big losses. Again, I can be wrong. Nevertheless, I don’t think it’s a reason to picket, riot or protest (not their homes, by all means run amok outside the Court), but if you feel that strongly about it, it’s a great reason to vote. Here’s an interesting stastitc:

In other sidebar news… it’s sort of a pun…. Does anyone else believe that the leak could of came from anywhere, either side for varying reasons. I’m going with it was done on purpose with all in agreement to gauge public reaction. It could be…. you never know.
Reports of former Heavyweight champion getting into an altercation on a flight have gone viral. With the video attached to the disruption, it didn’t look pretty. After watching the video, I did notice a couple of things. The person filming the video seems to be egging his drunk friend on. The intoxicated guy was being a little belligerent according to on lookers. There was mention of money on the recording. And the video cuts out and comes back, being careful not to show too much of the drunk person’s behavior. Finally, the person filming ends with a quote saying all he wanted was an autograph, most likely meaning that the intoxicated individual was not leaving Tyson alone when asked. It looks like an attempt to entice a person of wealth into a confrontation for an eventual payout. Lucky for that guy that Tyson was a boxer and not some crazy guy. Most people make a big deal about people that are trained in boxing and MMA. The fact is that the more dangerous people are the drunk guys that don’t know how to fight because they start throwing objects and start using more deadlier items. Tyson punched the guy and by all accounts it seems like it might have been self defense, but he only used his hands and not in a lethal way. It’s people that use weapons like knives and guns because they won’t use their fists when necessary that create the bigger problem.
LOL… this is hilarious. Legally, anyone in the country in 1992, as long as they were a citizen, can be President. Being born here would not matter.
Let us look at what the article says….
Article II, Section 1 clause 5 declares:
“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”
The last time that the constitution was amended and adopted by all the states was in 1992. With no time limit on ratification, the Twenty-seventh Amendment was ratified in May 7, 1992, when Michigan approved it. This, effectively, it could be affectively… who knows… places the time for article 2 section 1 as 5/07/1992. While that is the literal translation of the law and, let us be honest, it really wouldn’t affect many people that are willing to run for President, it does create that loophole. So, if you were a resident of this country in 1992, you did have to be a citizen but not a natural born citizen, and you wanted to run for President, you could, that is until the Supreme Court tells you that you can’t.
So funny… Legally, Arnold could have run for President… that’s Schwarzenegger not Palmer.
Of course this is my opinion and I still eat cereal with a fork, it’s funner that way. But, if you add amendments to a document than that document wasn’t finalized, or you wouldn’t have to add those amendments. And every time you add one, you have to then say…ok, this is the final version and we adopt it as our constitution. LOL… monkey wrenches all over the place.
The founding fathers didn’t put a date as to the adoption of the constitution and maybe they did that on purpose, had they said the adoption of this constitution on so and so date, then that would be different, but they didn’t and I think they didn’t on purpose.
I would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter… I might think you are sick bastards but I’m pretty sure the lord…. also thinks so, but he is a lot more understanding and forgiving…. So Happy Easter and I hope not to see some of you in the afterlife, I’m not equipped for that much heat… you know who you are.
What do u mean by Echo?
1 : the repetition of a sound that is caused by reflection of sound waves. 2 : the sound that is due to reflection of sound waves.
1. To have the same event occur again in similar fashion so as to confuse the situation
To manipulate someone into doing something that someone else did to protect themselves and then point the finger at that someone.
To cast a stone in a glass house and then convince, manipulate or otherwise threaten someone else to do it so they can get out of trouble by saying it was the other person
What percentage of presidents were lawyers?
While about 60 percent of all U.S. presidents since Independence have been lawyers, just four of the last 10 presidents have been lawyers. In the mid-19th century, around 80 percent of the U.S. Congress were lawyers.
Of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, 25 were lawyers. Of the 55 framers of the Constitution, 32 were lawyers.
How important is it to have effective counsel or even to be able to retain counsel, in a country designed by lawyers, it’s extremely important. The old adage by the greatest President to ever serve- ABRAHAM LINCOLN SAID: A man who represents himself, has a fool for a client.
The importance of effective counsel can not be over stated, but in recent times, that principle has been slowly eroded to where even any overt interference just gets shrugged off. This is where the word Elite comes into play. Only the elite can get effective counsel. Everyone else has become a second class citizen but they still want your tax money.
What do people do when they marry a person that legally changed their full name to a single name? Do they they just drop their last name? Do they hyphenate with a blank in the middle? Do they get to choose a number for a last name like 7? Do they use the other person’s first name as their last name?
There was a comment made that sexual assaults on adults and children was the affliction of a mental disorder. I completely disagree. I feel that any sexual assault is a criminal matter, especially on children, and all sexual assaults of a vile nature is the only reason why the death penalty should remain in place. It seems that some people feel that a sexual assault can be cured by an aspirin and some head shrinking… I think that sexual assaults derive from a person’s lack of caring about anyone else but themselves, like most crimes. Lack of empathy coupled with a ton of narcissism and a craving for power and the mindset that they want complete control and that they like to humiliate other people, which lets them get the release they want.
The question is if, the ones that do the vile assaults, like on any minor or on any person that is facing harsh legal trouble, that if these people know right from wrong, which they do, and if so, they should be tried, sentenced, then put to sleep, the deep sleep, the sayonara slumber, the permanent perpetuity. No cop outs, no bullshit.
And it’s my opinion that anyone that calls sexual assaults a mental disease is looking for an easy out.
