Cohen: Is this the kind of jerk-off
you would want to be US Attorney General?
news is now pretty much viral: Donald Trump’s lawyer, Michael
Cohen, is a total dick. Total. And he probably knows less about law
than I do, which ain’t much, I’ll admit. But
at least I have never stated in an interview with
that "by the very definition, you can’t rape your
spouse," implying that there is no law against spousal rape.
Wrong, dude. Spousal rape is illegal in all 50 states – even South
Carolina and Texas. It’s illegal in many other places with horrendous
records on civil rights -- places like Paupa New Guinea, Turkey, Namibia,
and Israel. Maybe Cohen was referring to Botswana or Tajikistan when he
implied that spousal rape is legal, or OK, or whatever the hell he was
the North end of Vancouver Island
Nanaimo - Port Hardy - Holberg -
Tofino - Nanaimo
This year all of BC has been hot, dry, and on
fire, including Vancouver Island. But in mid-July a line of storms blew in
off the Pacific and
helped snuff the early summer forest fires, thereby providing a window of
opportunity to see the Island before the late summer fires start. I've
seen the lower end, but not the remote upper end, the tip of which is N of the
50th parallel -- it is still quite light at 10 pm. My cottage is just about
where the "N" in "CANADA" is on the map. I caught the
5:30am ferry from Tsawwassen to Nanaimo, and was in Port Hardy by 1 pm.
(BC is not
really purple, btw. It's sort of burnt umber.)
Sandra Bland/Brian Encinia encounter:
Jim Crow redux gone viral
Would you mind putting out your
-- Brian Encinia
this Sandra Bland tragedy and debacle in Waller County, Texas gets
totally out of control, I thought it might be helpful – at least in organizing
my own opinions – to put down a few thoughts. I have carefully examined both
versions of the arrest vid that were released by the Texas Dept. of Public
Safety, which appears to have been named after Robespierre’s 1793
Committee of Public Safety to oversee the French Reign of Terror. Basically, I
see the entire "policing effort" of Texas as a reign of terror,
particularly for blacks – not unlike many other states.
Gorcyca: Poster-girl for what’s wrong with
Americans’ system of choosing who judges them
God gave you a brain. He expects you to
-- Lisa Gorcyca
irony or poetic justice?
I think back over a lifetime of watching politicians
humiliate themselves and being humiliated by others, I can think of only one
situation where a politician was humiliated by his/her spouse, and you know
the situation I'm talkin' about. In virtually every case of public
humiliation that I can recall -- at least the sexual ones -- the politician
humiliated his spouse; the reverse seems not to happen, although I'm sure
there's plenty of spouses goofin' around, if you catch my drift. Of
course, when both spouses are politicians, then it's a whole new set of
rules, and have no doubts, Hil was a politician while she was FLOTUS.
