As of Cohen's plea, tRump is officially an unindicted co-conspirator in a federal crime. That is the message we need to be pushing.
It’s only a matter of time...
mcgeo52 comments on Aug 23, 2018:
You know, I've been trying for quite a while to find one good thing I could say about tRump. It's pretty pathetic, but I may have to settle for, "At least he hasn't sent a dick pic."

mcgeo52 comments on Aug 23, 2018:
This is the tip of the iceberg. With everything that will come out in the next couple of months, you can expect more and more of tRump's supporters to bail. I said over a year ago that tRump would destroy the Republicans in the mid terms unless they got rid of him at least six months before the election. They were stupid enough to stick with him. They'll pay dearly for it. That's fine by me.

mcgeo52 comments on Aug 22, 2018:
This morning I called the offices of my two Senators, Diane Feinstein and Kamala Harris, and my Representative, Alan Lowenthal. I asked the aide at each office who answered the phone to pass along the following message: “As of yesterday one Donald J. Trump is officially an unindicted co-conspirator in a federal felony. As such he should not be making any judicial appointments. The Senator (or Representative) should go on record saying as much from the floor and also in a press statement.” I am heartened to report that the aides’ reactions ranged from happily helpful to downright giddy.

People can question Cohen's credibility if they want, but Cohen has audio recordings. Same with Omarosa. And if they really want to start getting into credibility, fine. Let's talk about Donald the sociopathic liar Trump. Srsly?
To reuse or not to reuse, that is the question.
mcgeo52 comments on Aug 22, 2018:
I host an open mic at an art gallery in Long Beach. Almost all of the furnishings in the gallery have been rescued from the curb or the alley. As for the equipment I use, I have saved a substantial amount (i.e., 20% to 65%) by buying used mics. Let's face it, I buy the mics to use them. After a few weeks I have a used mic even if I paid for a new one. A Shure SM57 is still a Shure SM57 even after it has been used for years. And Sennheiser e835s don't have a shelf life either. By intelligently buying a mix of new and used equipment I have put together a sound system that gives us the best sound of any open mic in the area, and saved a few hundred in the process. Also in Long Beach we have a shop, Long Beach Depot for Creative Reuse, that carries nothing but scrap items from manufacturers. Artist and craft types find all sorts of things there to incorporate into their projects. My other favorite is buying refurbished items. Those are real bargains most of the time.

I have filed clams against them and been paid by the city. I have also had judges deal with them: • One was found in contempt. • One was fired based on a judge's order after the officer committed perjury agains me in a traffic ticket case. The judge did not ( probably could not) order the officer fired. He did order the officer that every time he appeared in court he would have to present a letter to the judge proving that the officer had perjured himself in my case. As soon as his Captain heard that, the officer was out.

mcgeo52 comments on Aug 21, 2018:
By the not too distant future I assume you mean less than a year. At this point I would argue that three months might well be too distant. However, given what has come out recently (e.g., recordings from Michael Cohen, Omarosa, and (from what I am hearing) Don McGahn, as well as what will come out at Manafort's second trial, Cohen's trial, and Jeffrey Epstein's trial (all three happening next month), I have reason to hope that Trump will be gone soon. Having said that leaves us with the fact that Mike Pense is the obvious replacement. But that isn't going to happen. He is as involved in the Russian mess as Trump, and Robert Mueller is too much of a patriot to see this country go through two disgraced Presidents leaving office back to back. That brings us to Paul Ryan, the next on the list. That isn't going to happen either (see discussion on Pence). So we either get Ryan's replacement as Speaker, or we get Orrin Hatch, the President Pro Tempore of the Senate and next in line after Ryan. Given that the House can, in theory, elect a new Speaker in less than an hour, it will most likely be Ryan's replacement. This is where it gets real interesting. Are you aware that being a member of the House is not a requirement for becoming Speaker? All it takes is a nomination and 218 votes [fn 1]. Good luck getting 218 votes together for anyone, especially with chief cat herder Ryan gone. And no Democrat, even Bernie, will get 218 votes. However if the 194 Democrats can get 24 Republicans to vote with them for a moderate Republican, that would work. And yes, there are still a few moderate Republicans alive. Now, we are finally getting to the answer to your question. I would like to see Nancy Pelosi nominate Olympia Snowe as Speaker [fn 2]. Let me explain why I believe she is the best person for the job: • We need someone to help heal our country; her feminine energy will be a major asset. • She has enough experience in government to have more than a clue about what needs to be done. • She is someone who can work with both sides of the aisle. She has literally written the book on making Congress functional again. • She is a Republican, and that is very important for one reason. The next President is going to need to order a federal investigation of the 2016 election. When (not if) the evidence proves that the ballot count was tampered with, the President will need to issue an Executive Order declaring the election a fraud. If a Democrat did that, we would likely have a civil war. What would be the result of such an EO? Legally nothing based on fraud can stand. That means all of Trump's EOs and appointments are null and void. The rules and regulations promulgated by the appointees would also be null and void. All of his judicial ...

mcgeo52 comments on Aug 21, 2018:
If Mueller were just going after Trump this would have been over months ago. There is more than enough evidence on the record already to send Trump to prison for life. Or have you not noticed the number of Russians already indicted by Mueller and his crew? The intelligence community warned President Obama that the Russians were interfering in the election. The Congressional leadership was also briefed. Mitch McConnell told Obama that he would cry "Politics!" if Obama went public with the information. Obama should have called him on that one.
Why do people believe in reincarnation?
mcgeo52 comments on Aug 21, 2018:
Years ago I was discussing reincarnation with a friend. We had both just read a series of reports of children who had very specific knowledge of things that happened years before they were born and many miles away, in some cases thousands of miles. He said, "I'm still not convinced." I asked, "Well, then how do you explain all of these cases?" He asked, "Don't you believe in Jung's theory of the Collective Unconscious?"

mcgeo52 comments on Aug 20, 2018:
We let felons vote. Stupid is not a crime. The problem is that the Goldwater wing of the Republican Party hijacked the conversation in this country and has moved it so far to the right that Goldwater himself could not get nominated today. Hell, the 1956 Republican platform that Eisenhower ran on sounds like it was written by Bernie Sanders on one of his more (relatively speaking) conservative days. Reagan's elimination of the fairness doctrine has done more damage to this country than anything since the Civil War. Indeed there is talk of a Second Civil War and if it happens I will lay it at the feet of St. Ronnie.

MEN: What would your reason be for asking a woman what she does for a living, upon meeting her?
mcgeo52 comments on Aug 19, 2018:
Most men in this society feel that they are defined by their job. Them asking what someone does for a living is a way to help define who the person is. I do not feel at all defined by my job. I don't ask what a woman does for her living, I ask how she spends her time? The answer reveals a lot about her and her priorities. If she spends 20 minutes telling me about her volunteer work rescuing kittens before she mentions her job, I know which matters more to her, or at least which she finds more fulfilling and rewarding. Another reason for asking about someone's job is to find out what her schedule is like. Is it compatible with mine to the point that we will be able to spend time together? Will she have time to travel? Will that be weekends or weekdays? Fortunately I have some flexibility in my schedule, but it's helpful to know what to expect.

They haven't completely done away with plastic bags, it is just that they have gone to heavier duty, reusable bags. By state law they have to charge you $0.10 per bag. That initiative passed the same day as the one legalizing pot. One of my friends observed, "I guess that officially makes California the dime bag state."

mcgeo52 comments on Aug 18, 2018:
re: jury nullification It is not the jury's job solely to determine guilt or innocence. Their job is to acquit or convict. In order to convict they have to agree unanimously on two things: 1) the defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and 2) the law is just and should be enforced. This used to be in the Jury Handbook in California until the late '60s or early 70s. It was removed because too many juries were acquitting in marijuana cases.
