    “Your call is very important to us.”

    No, it’s not. If it was, a human would have answered by now.

    (Yes, I can “read it”. I get to choose what I comment on. This is America, buddy.)

    And back to the wall….the guy who has so much money he convinced SMU to put the GWB library on its campus, despite the fact he never went there, owns several hundred acres (some reports there are miles) on the border. He does not want a fence on his property. Of course, he’ll patrol it himself; not to worry. And chances are there is more than one property owner on the border who has the clout to exempt himself from the fence.

    If your wall necessarily has holes, it ceases to be a wall. Why invest in a wall which is pre-designed to fail?

    I am from Virginia. Mr. McDonnell is from my hometown. I am well familiar with the fact that he is a scumbag. But when this all came down, I said I did not believe he would be convicted, as being a sleazebucket is not illegal. The law states, and the justices understand, that there has to be blatant quid pro quo: “I’ll give you a ride in my Ferrari, and your wife can buy a new dress and you can get a Rolex (and on and on) if you will connect me with these people.” If these words are not recorded in some legally defensible way, it is not illegal.

    If you say “I’ll pay your daughter’s wedding expenses, but I don’t really expect you to do anything to help me advance my company’s new product to that group of people you’ll be hosting in a couple days”, that is perfectly fine.

    The justices did not err, the law is flawed. And it has been made tighter since then, but not by much.

    Mr. McDonnell, however happy he can be to avoid prison time, is not without penalty. It has cost him the chance to become VP or even go farther, which was certainly his (and his wife’s) goal. The family was undergoing financial stress due to other investments while he was governor (which is why they were so happy to accept the gifts and loans). I can’t imagine things are any better after legal fees. And I don’t think they’re together anymore. He’s got O.J. disease: he isn’t guilty but no one wants to be seen with him.

    Correct. Although incident number one involved a male. I should have been more accurate in mentioning a speedometer; didn’t think of Speedos when I was typing.

    Saw a picture on the interwebs, with a circle of teenagers all looking at their phones. Caption: “Best Party Ever!”

    I remember a time we used to hitchhike everywhere. Mostly, it was safe. At times, not so much. I was one of the lucky ones; my most scary times were when the driver grabbed my package, and the woman who had the speedo pegged at 120 in her Duster and did not say one word for over a hundred miles. Riders who use Uber should use much caution. If I was a serial killer, I would be tempted to advertise my ride.

    Two thoughts:
    1. Bristol Palin was interviewed and asked about abstinence-only education when her mom was a candidate. She stated that it was “unrealistic”. But later she was offered $250,000 to “star” in a commercial advocating abstinence.

    2. If her last name was “Obama”, I would imagine the Republicans (and their official communications wing, Fox News) would be all over the “fact” that this is the result of the immorality of liberals. (With secondary outrage directed at the moral quality of her parents.)

    @cdward and @mikefive:

    Although I cannot speak for either view of the Swiss system with any authority, M5 is absolutely correct when he says “Our problem is cultural.” Certainly not enough people are willing to admit to that, or at least not enough in positions of having the power to change that.

    It is sad that after thousands of years of religious faith, the basic tenets of religion are not adhered to by the societies who claim its importance.

    “It’s heritage, not hate.”

    And when I see a Nazi flag, I think Oktoberfest!

  10. I Play One On TV commented on Clay Bennett about 1 year ago

    “He played with that flag and the liberals – aka the American Taliban went ballistic.”

    The governors of South Carolina and Alabama are liberals? Wal-Mart is run by liberals?

    Flags are used to attract like-minded individuals, and when evil-doers want to do evil, they are more likely to be even more evil when they know they have numbers. That is the only reason to even consider banning the flag.

    But it appears that many are missing the point of the toon, which to me is that going after the flag is absurd if we ignore the guns. Congratulations, Mr. Bennett: an inarguable statement well presented.
