Re: “The Skinny

Thank you for this information. Considering McSally received and spent $7 million campaign contributions (source OpenSecrets), would she be beholden to her constituents or her contributor? Would she even have a conflict of interest listening to her constituents?

Re: “The Skinny

Isn't this just a slightly re-edited re-posting of an article posted by Jim Nintzel on Thursday, Feb. 23, 2017 at 12:38 PM. I noticed it as I cut and pasted "Posted By Jim Nintzel on Thu, Feb 23, 2017 at 12:38 PM"?

Re: “Taking Initiative

Rat T, doing a mighty fine Sean Spicey impersonation:

Make some specious claim with zero to back it up (it's February, Rat. Any restaurant owner claiming that the slightly higher wage put them out of business after one or two pay cycles is LYING to cover up their own bad business model)

When caught screwing up, blatantly lie about it. TGE? TGIF!

Deflect, insult, lie, rinse, repeat. Then sit back and collect the 8-10 likes that you, What the F? and CW can generate between your multiple aliases.

Too funny... #alternatefacts

Re: “Taking Initiative

That is the stupidest excuse I have ever read for anything!

Before you realize it, you're going to be a member of Trump's tyrannical regime.

You're movin' on up Rat.

Make sure to get to the east side and get a de-luxe apartment in the sky.

Re: “Taking Initiative

Fix your keyboard Rat.

It's making you look like a bigger idiot than you already are.

As if that is possible.

Re: “Taking Initiative

You forgot to mention the restaurants tgat closed last week due to the required wage hike. So we lost a few jobs. Think about how many new ones the increase in minimum wage will produce.

None.

Re: “The Skinny

Thanks for the tip. I talked to Watson and this is what he said:

Congrats, Sherlock. You found someone systematically distorting two comment streams to align the likes and dislikes, which had previously had a different distribution, with PCDP orthodoxy. You provoked the troll into revealing that yes, it was the same troll visiting both streams every day to check on where things stood and alter them if need be. In that both streams relate to PCDP positions on school funding and governance, it seems likely that the troll is a PCDP maven and / or a supporter of the TUSD Board majority which Rachael Sedgwick recently had the gall to criticize and, through her election, to break up.

Case closed.

(Good luck, Rachael. You've got a very tough job ahead of you and some of those affiliated with your opponents seem to play dirty.)

Re: “The Skinny

Yes, the entire legal system. Respect starts at the top, not at our level. Trump has been shouting down judges and ridiculing decisions for years. Defend Trump all you want, but he has no keen legal mind, just self-interest. And, due to his appointment authority, he can now test the integrity of the system and cause trouble from initial action upwards as appeals rise to the top (which he also will be able to appoint). There has as yet been no indication that Trump will not continue to harass judges and call for rulings in his favor before the judges can carefully and correctly decide the merits. We can hope they all stay independent, but the system is already suspect due to you-know-who.
Don't usually send links, but this new one from AP is called "Trump's tweets could make life tough for federal lawyers ".

Re: “The Skinny

"challenging the integrity of our entire legal system?"

I did not hear that. He said he would take it to the Supreme Court if necessary. Is that not accessing our nations legal system?

" threatening specific judges and intentionally prejudicing court cases long before actual decisions are made."

I heard him say "so called judge" regarding the Ninth Circuit Court. And that is true as 80% of his opinions are over ruled as unconstitutional. I have to wonder why Obama let that train wreck continue. But that's exactly why WA state filed...so they could get the wacky courts decision first and attempt to bias other jurisdictions.

Besides the question of intentionally prejudicing courts...That court itself has a documented history of not being in line with the law. They begin from a position of prejudice.

The humans are at it again.

Re: “The Skinny

Even a rose bush can understand WHY Trump keeps going after politicians (both parties), celebrities, reporters, congress (both houses) and, sooner or later, other world leaders. It must really feel good. But there is something basically bad and even indefensible about constantly challenging the integrity of our entire legal system, threatening specific judges and intentionally prejudicing court cases long before actual decisions are made. It pushes the whole process behind police arrests and jury trials into a constitutional red zone, less access to justice for most of us and more abuse and disrespect by felons and crooks and anyone up for gaming the system.

Re: “The Skinny

Voter fraud convictions are popping up all over the country. Why couldn't Obama find them?

Re: “The Skinny

AS the left celebrates the 9th Circuit decision, be reminded that their decisions are overturned over 80% of the time. Is it a justice court or a political arm of the democratic party?

When you need a heart transplant pick a doctor with an 80% failure rate.

Would you?

Re: “The Skinny

You're right. There are normal and abnormal patterns of response in these comment streams. There are also normal and abnormal patterns of like and dislike additions. When there are 7 likes or dislikes added to certain comments in less than a 20 hour period, especially on a dead thread, it can be deducted that something is rotten in the state of Denmark. You still haven't acknowledged that.

Congratulations Sherlock! You have wasted your time on bad leads. Go back to Baker Street and examine the evidence further. Make sure to talk to Watson because he is a valuable resource, especially at this point because the cocaine is ruining your brain.

It's also making you paranoid. That's what cocaine and being a major troll does.

Arrivederci, troll.
