Did they make the first move when we rolled tanks into Bagdad? Or was that us? Did a jihadi conglomerate escort Isis fighters in Syria? Or was that us? Did a bunch of backwoods stone age savages fund Bin Laden in the 80s? Or was that us? Did Bin Laden pay Turkey to train ISIS and Al Qaeda fighters? Or was that us?

Calling those people aggressive and failing to look in the mirror is naive. Nobody has dropped more bombs, killed more civilians, and caused more havoc across the globe in the last 50 years than we have. Bar none. It ain't even a close call. We can't hardly stomach the violence in person anymore. We've made it remote with cruise missiles, air strikes, and shit tons of drone strikes.

Perhaps you have not come far enough along in your journey yet. I used to be in the camp of thinking we did all this stuff for virtuous reasons, even if in practicality it was not always executed perfectly. It has become patently obvious by now that we have not had benevolent purposes behind any of these wars. It has always been for grifting, leverage, illicit businesses, and other despicable malfeasance. ALWAYS predicated on a completely fabricated lie. And ALWAYS followed up with a massive psyop propaganda campaign to keep us engaged and supportive. Then we accuse the other guy of being a stone age savage. As we steam roll the place with tanks and bomb the place back to the stone age. So we can rebuild it again at 10x market rates on the backs of the American taxpayer for maximum grifting. There's nothing virtuous about our government. It is simply the largest racketeering enterprise ever conceived in the history of the world.

Surprised more people here haven't figured out the jihad larp we've been fed. Is only natural that people living in those countries would be going apeshit about all the fucked up bullshit we've been doing there. Propping up dictators, invading to install puppet governments, running intel ops to recruit/train/groom savages to make disgustingly brutal online videos so we can entice the public to support perpetual military interventions in these countries. Its fuckin sick....

Tell me if China/Russia/Iran/North Korea/Insert Country invaded this country, that we would not behave exactly as Iraqis did. You can totally understand why someone might be so infuriated that they would refuse to be subjected to outsider rule. To the point where you'd rather strap a c4 vest on and take out as many of those fuckers as you can than live under their rule.

Randi Weingarten is the perfect population reduction scheme. I would rather be gay than have sex with a woman like her.

Nice one, uncucked with no lock! Love pachmayr grips too. One day, s&w/colt/ruger/taurus et al will hopefully install non dogshit grips at the factory so that buyers do not have to immediately change them when they get home.

If that is the case, their bench is even more fucked than I previously thought possible. At this point, "the rent's too damn high" dude from NYC years back would beat Biden in a dem primary by just putting his name on the ballot...

The last time I saw this guy make an appearance was quite a few years ago. He looked near dead. I think he's had several heart transplants...at least one for sure. Now, while I won't say he looks good, he looks remarkably healthier than when I saw him on tv a few years back. How the fuck is that even possible??

Well, breaking in with intent to steal or commit a felony = burglary. Which is typically a felony. It looks like Nevada doesn't care if you break in or if a door or window is open, or if you are invited in. If your intent was to commit larceny, battery, assault or any felony, Nevada can/will charge you with felony burglary.

In Nevada, it is a $1200 threshold between misdemeanor and felony theft. If they threatened him, it is robbery, which is a felony. I have actually seen cases where simply making a demand for something, without overt threats, constitutes robbery because the courts say that a reasonable person would presume this person was making threats by virtue of attire, posture, and the demand for what is not theirs. Not very often do these come around but I have seen them.

There are some upcoming trials against Merck under "product liability" tort claims. Has been quite some time since I last checked into them so I am unsure if any have actually gone to trial yet. My recollection is that there was a trial scheduled for this fall. But for awhile I was tracking them. I believe 6 federal circuits have several cases each.

It's a tough call. We don't have enough footage to make a definitive determination. On the one hand, it is not legal to use deadly force in defense of property. I don't see these guys in the clip doing anything except stealing. It is not impossible, but an uphill battle to claim the guy felt in imminent danger of death or serious bodily harm.

On the other hand, it is lawful to use deadly force in most states to prevent the commission of a felony in your presence. This was likely felony robbery, or at least felony theft. Don't know if they threatened the shopkeeper with harm or not. Would alter a lot of this.

This is starting to stink worse than Stacey Abram's fat rolls. Are they now smuggling arms to themselves to use here?? Otherwise, makes zero sense to do this...

nobody is dialed in on the fact that ballots can be mass adjudicated. this feature and its subsequent use is prima facie evidence that nobody gives a shit about the intent of the voter. Because mass adjudicating them means you didn't discern the intent. You put them where you felt like.

Let me be a bit more precise: The fact that batches can be adjudicated is a beyond retarded feature that would only exist for nefarious purposes. Adjudication means the machine could not determine the intent of the voter. Batch adjudication means the person looking at what the machine couldn't read doesn't bother to read the intent of the voter. They decide where to allocate them en masse. If you think about the amount of man hours that would be required for an individual to correctly assign each race or initiative on a ballot that the machine couldn't read, and do so faithfully by reading it for the machine, it would take hundreds of people working around the clock solely on this to accomplish it in 2 weeks. We know they don't have people doing that. It is the essence of the machine rig.

I bet if someone looked into it, beyond randomly assigning adjudicated ballots en masse via algorithm, the actual paper ballots the machine couldn't read also get set aside. They know which pile needs substitutes off the images they alter after sending a count from the adjudication process. They then "print" the new ones, and toss the old ones.

what the fuck?? Dude was hiding reality?? Why take the gig? You did a shit job of hiding anything. You left more questions than answers in the process of demonstrating conclusively with evidence that the entire election was a dumpster fire...

Settlements and damages from a lawsuit are considered taxable. Unless they are damages from physical injury. Perhaps not subject to employment tax, but definitely income tax'd. I believe Trump's tax law changed all of this to tax these awards.

This doofus sounds like the government. Whenever successful, they want their cut. When losing money hand over fist, they are no longer interested in sharing in that loss. Maybe he’d like to pick up his share of BP’s 20 billion first quarter loss? Or the 17 billion loss over the last 4 quarters?

This is click bait.

This is over a pre-trial motion. A judge did NOT make any such finding. The standard to survive a 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss is that the plaintiff stated sufficient facts, accepted as true, with all reasonable inferences from the facts drawn in favor of the plaintiff, that makes a claim for relief that is plausible on its face. It is a low burden to meet. The ultimate finding of fact will come at trial.

JohnCocktoastin 3 points ago +3 / -0

No. This is pre-trial motion. The standard for proper pleadings is whether when viewed through a light most favorable to the plaintiff, with all reasonable inferences being drawn in favor of the plaintiff, the contents of the complaint, if true, would entitle the plaintiff to relief. That is all. This doesn't implicate Visa. This means that their complaint is sufficient enough to move to trial where a finder in fact (probably a jury) will decide the answer. This is click bait headlines at best, or journalistic malpractice at worst. People writing about legal issues ought to have a damn clue before publishing their brain farts on the topic.

Perhaps blue does not bleed thru to the extent black does. In a way the machines notice. Not sure?

2
JohnCocktoastin 2 points ago +2 / -0

I’m thinking its way more obvious than that. It’s that black is a fairly easy color to replicate. Trying to match the same exact blue would be quite difficult, even on the best of the best printers that is no easy feat. Especially if you make a pattern which an ink jet would not make.

Someone smarter than me can probably find the funding source that all these companies get in exchange for selling out. How many eggs has hollywood laid in the last 5-10 years? How many 100+ million losses can you take before you're out of business? Nobody does that shit with their own money. May be once. But not repeatedly over and over again. They are getting money from somewhere.
