  1. Once again, I'm just amazed at conservative people who want to be tough on crime are upset over a normal sentencing recommendation for a 7 time felon. Amazing to me. All because....Trump. Not a cult. Not a cult.
  2. Feels appropriate: “I was born HERE and you were born THERE just inches apart on a map on a wall. The lines on the map decide if you matter at all. I was born HERE and you were born THERE So I belong HERE and you belong THERE. And if that’s a bad place I don’t have to care. I was born HERE and you were born THERE but you tried to come HERE to be free. You forgot that the lines on the map on the wall say that to be free you would have to be ME.” L.R.Knost
  3. Sure but can we refer to Trump as a "Carnival Barking Dog" here in the PSF? Probably not.
  4. I'm only half way through All or Nothing but so far the best "on the field" moment was the Maddox injury. The closeness of it specifically. Hearing the conversations and how the anxious feelings come through. It really changed my perspective from it being a downed player to an injured person (if that makes any sense).
  5. I did not say I didn't recognize laws, just "sins". One has nothing to do with the other.
  6. As an Atheist, I find it amusing that our laws are being debated because...sin. I do not recognize the Christian concept of "sin" and nor should our laws and government. Its right there in Amendment 1 - above the sacred Right to Bear Arms everyone goes on about. Its quite clear. If something's a "sin" in your world, you're free to live accordingly. Otherwise, keep it out of my government. TIA.
  7. I'm curious if this new-found sympathy for felons extends to all or just the white collar types. I mean, people with 7 felony convictions rarely elicit such compassion.
  8. Should the Foreperson be a Trump supporter? Or do you think there's a person with no opinion one way or the other who could possibly fill the role? Also, I assume each jury member was approved by the defense team.
  9. Once again I am truly amazed that supporters of the law and order president are siding with convicted felons. Oh, and so is the law and order president.
  10. Because of course... Trump Claims Roger Stone Jury Was Tainted by Bias “Citing a report from Fox News, President Trump said Thursday the jury that convicted his friend Roger Stone had a biased member — a claim by the defense team that had been dismissed by a federal judge a day earlier,” the New York Times reports. Said Trump: “Now it looks like the fore person in the jury, in the Roger Stone case, had significant bias. Add that to everything else, and this is not looking good for the ‘Justice’ Department.”
  11. Its amazing how this administration, and it supporters, is suddenly concerned about the treatment of convicted felons. Remember when Trump said the police treat suspects too nicely? Maybe bang their heads a little when they're putting them in the police car.
  12. Is it though? Stone was convicted of 7 felonies. The maximum combined would be 50 years. The prosecution recommended less than 20% of the max. Keep in mind all of his antics following his indictment as well like posting pictures of the judge in crosshairs and continually violating a gag order.
  13. How did you feel when Trump called the EC a disaster and proposed replacing it with the popular vote? The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy. - Donald Trump, 11/6/12 “Remember, we won the election. And we won it easily. You know, a lot of people say ‘Oh, it was close.’ And by the way, they also like to always talk about Electoral College. Well, it’s an election based on the Electoral College. I would rather have a popular election, but it’s a totally different campaign,” Trump said. “It’s as though you're running — if you're a runner, you're practicing for the 100-yard dash as opposed to the 1-mile.” “The Electoral College is different. I would rather have the popular vote because it's, to me, it's much easier to win the popular vote,” he continued. April, 2018
