82 The impact of missing Scalia is felt in that BS ruling they just issued which was a 4-4 tie which allowed a BS 9th circuit ruling stand and gave the CA unions a free win. Precedent for these cases would have had the ruling go the other way, but the court liberals only believe in stare decisis when it favors them.

My garbage disposal makes a humming noise, but does not grind up food. The blades are not jammed; we put the little L-shaped thingy (pardon the technical jargon) in the hole in the bottom and the blades turn freely. So, is it time for a new garbage disposal, or is this something we might be able to fix?

Other pertinent info: it's 12 years old, used daily, 3/4 hp, Kenmore brand.

Thanks for any advice.

I'm with MTF. I'm a much better dresser, but he looks a lot like me otherwise.

"Baggy jeans." Seems like the younger generation's clothes are always too baggy or too tight for us. Just last night, it was the tight pants. Got to keep on your toes.

IP, I meant to say below, that Mississippi River road from the Dubuque area right on into Minnesota makes a pretty good ride, except during holiday traffic. Not road-race country, but pretty curvy, with lots of dammed lakes w/locks and other scenic overlooks. IIRC there is even a pissant riverboat casino moored along there, and, use local map, a ferry across big river, on alternate days. Recommended, and don't miss the Pike's Peak photo-op (you rode where?). "Highway 61."

Up side? Fewer heirs to the Clinton throne.

I find the tale about Bill being frustrated by his lack of access to Hillary more disturbing. Her MB handler/aide Huma holds on to her phone and screens her calls, and will not only block Bill from reaching Hillary, but will stay in her hotel suite and lock to door to keep the SS out.

108 SCOTUS is a lawless, unconstitutional super-legislature for dummies, and hoping to merely pack the rogue institution with non-authoritarian people with some integrity is a very low-% approach. Fix the institutional problem, or continue to watch the republic literally destroyed by 2 or 3 mediocre Beltway seat-warmers.


For surely, consistent with their exquisite architecture that placed most power in the hands of the most accountable govt. elements, the Framers intended for the country to be governed by a small panel of judges appointed for life. Kind of obvious.

Up side? Fewer heirs to the Clinton throne.

I find the tale about Bill being frustrated by his lack of access to Hillary more disturbing. Her MB handler/aide Huma holds on to her phone and screens her calls, and will not only block Bill from reaching Hillary, but will stay in her hotel suite and lock to door to keep the SS out.

129 Now now, let's not speak ill of all our heroes, the unionized "public safety" community. Those lionized in most traditional views of America.


Recall that even in WI, and then again in OH, while some of the public had enough remaining sense to finally partially rein in the idiocy of public employee unions in "education", even broaching the subject of doing the same for the even more contemptible "public safety" shake-down was unthinkable.


Only a fool would want to return to a time when public employees delivered vastly better services at a fraction of today's costs, with far better attitudes - even some of that storied "public service" ethic some older people may have read about.

134 If the disposal hums but the blades do not spin, it could be that the rotor is stuck. The rotor is the plate at the bottom of the disposal that the blades attach to. This happens if the disposal is used infrequently. You can try to turn the rotor by using a wooden item, like a hammer handle, WHILE THE DISPOSAL IS TURNED OFF.

If you can turn the rotor a bit, remove the wooden item from disposal, and try the power. If it now runs normally, you are good to go. If it still hums and refuses to turn, it is a bad motor, and the disposal needs replacement.

Okay, due to popular demand, here's my garbage disposal question, lol
(does not involve hobos, let's get that out of the way right now.)



My garbage disposal makes a humming noise, but does not grind up
food. The blades are not jammed; we put the little L-shaped thingy
(pardon the technical jargon) in the hole in the bottom and the blades
turn freely. So, is it time for a new garbage disposal, or is this
something we might be able to fix?



Other pertinent info: it's 12 years old, used daily, 3/4 hp, Kenmore brand.



Thanks for any advice.



Posted by: bluebell at March 29, 2016 11:09 AM (2WwbN)

it would cost you more for a repairman to come out and fix it than what a new one costs. That is assuming that you can install it yourself. And BTW I would go with at least a 1 HP unit if it will fit.

Hot water should run for at least 10 seconds after motor is off, to clear the mash.

It's political, and dangerous. Reporters crowding a candidate in a scrum is the normal thing. Now it'll be who can file an AB charge first. Which means more security people, who will also be vulnerable to charges, to keep the reporters at more than arm's length from the candidate.

Bottom line: A lot less give-and-take access for reporters. Unless the reporters LUV the candidate.

It will be pretty hard for Trump's CM to avoid a fine on this. There is physical and video evidence that he touched her. The law is the law, even if it seems silly.

I remember fighting with the Twitter mobs over the George Zimmerman case, saying that it looks like it will be a legal self defense shooting. I even had Kurt Schlicter "pull lawyer rank" on me to tell me I was full of it and Zimmerman would be convicted. This feels pretty similar.

bluebell -- if you're still here, check the following:

As already instructed, try the reset (turn off unit, push in reset, retry unit). If no go, turn off unit and get your jam wrench (if you don't have one, check dead center at bottom of unit...you'll see a female heexagonal receiver...believe it is 1/4"). With unit off, work wrench (or suitable hex key counter clockwise / clockwise). If you can get drum to freely spin, pull out wrench and retry power. Cause of jam may rejam and you'll have to loosen again and (power off) use hand to get foreign object out. Generally, when garbo's go bad they leak...rarely does the motor go first...almost always a jam. If buying new, 3/4 is good, but don't go for super quiet models...you're paying way extra for additional sound deadening material...unimportant.

322 239 >>I agree - sounds like a local DA trying to make a name for himself. The only video I've seen shows Fields moving backwards when Lewandowski walks past her. But, you can't really see him grab her.

If he had just apologized from the get go this would have all gone away.

334 190 Since we're on humming motors of garbage disposers, two questions. How hare is it to replace one and how long would it take for one to do it?
Posted by: auscolpyr at March 29, 2016 11:31 AM (suO/a)




First check that the garbage disposer isn't jammed. It may be perfectly OK if the motor is humming. There's a thingy (bolt?) on the bottom* that you can turn with a tool that comes with the garbage disposer (or you probably use some other tool) that can free up the rotor. And voila! The garbage disposer may then work like a charm.


(Sorry, I've forgotten the details of the undercarriage of the damned things, but I've done this before some time ago, and it saves a lot of time, money, and effort. So try this first.)

tips for the English Major.
Before you start, check if it's plugged in or hard wired to an electrical box. unplug it or find the breaker FIRST!
Water + Electricity = Green Mile ugly

Disposals arent hard, just heavy, so disconnect the plumbing before taking it loose.
If you can stay with the same brand the coupling to the sink may even be compatible.
If you can, take the old one out first and take it with you to compare.
You'll also know if you have the correct tools at that point. Usually a phillips screwdriver, channel lock pliers, some Teflon tape, and the swear jar is all that's needed these days.

113 My garbage disposal makes a humming noise,
----------------

This happens from time-to-time, and is anticipated by the manufacturer. At the bottom of the motor the motor shaft is slightly exposed, and has a hex hole in the shaft which accepts an Allen wrench. Normally, the appliance is shipped with the wrench, but often gets misplaced. It's just a standard cheapie Allen wrench.

With the motor turned off, just insert the wrench, and work the shaft back and forth a few times, and things should free up.

I think you are ignoring the obvious fact that for days after the incident Lewandowski called Fields "delusional", a "liar", an "attention seeker" and claimed "he never touched her". This was before any charges were filed.

I do think the incident is silly but this is the problem with Trump and his style. It is deny, deny, deny and slime anyone who stands up to you.

The way I'm reading the "Trump 2016" is violence meme is in conjuction with the "Trump = Hitler evil", which is also getting play. The Left is developing the theme that opposing Trump BY ANY MEANS necessary is a social good.

372 Not saying it should even be an issue, Sven. Just noting that the statute, if they choose to charge (which apparently they did) will be hard for him to win against. She did have bruises, and the video shows him pulling her. Battery is an either/or, there isn't a threshhold of severity.

She might be a total waste of oxygen, but the evidence supports him being given a fine. I hesitate to use the word "conviction" because this feels like like the equivalent of a speeding ticket.

about the incident Fields wrote, at Breitbart


Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken.




she was not "yanked down" she did not "almost fall to the ground"

God "allowed" Ogabe to win because in the end we are His sociological experiment on the redeemability of man vice his animal hedonism.

It takes a LOT for Him to intervene which is why they are called "miracles" and not "oh look hourly events."

America was blessed by His providence and loving gaze multiple times in our Founding let alone the intervening years....

If America had a problem with the thinly veiled Judicial Oligarchy dictating matters of structural morality there'd have been general strikes.

Dehr. Learned a lot from Wise Old Carpenter dude.

453 Yes, those dark finger tipped marks on her arm are bruises. Your trump is showing.



Generally, bruises don't show up immediately.
Takes a day or two.
Red marks DO. But red marks don't always turn to bruises.
(Had enough left on my ass growing up)

But everyone was claiming "bruises" immediately. So, either the words were wrong, or the bruises were from an earlier time.

454 Let's all hop in the WABAC machine and recall... this came shortly after Cruz got rid of his spokesman over a Tweet about a misleading video.

Donald was all around, barking about holding Cruz responsible for the actions of his people, then all of a sudden Donald's spokesman acts inappropriately... *lies about it*... trashes the woman who had been on their side and worked for a news organization that was extremely supportive.

Once again, Donald wants *you* to behave a certain way, when he has no intentions of doing so.

Except "America" didn't vote on Roe vs Wade, it was 5 judges. Most Americans were appalled when the decision was handed down, just like banning prayer in school, etc.


I'd have to disagree there. If "most Americans" were "appalled" by Roe, they would have moved heaven and earth - including quick, brutal replacement of GOP assholes who didn't challenge the ruling - to have it struck down, as with Dred Scott.

America's woes can be traced back to the fundamental fact that, for the most part (excluding the pernicious left) we wish to be left alone and have no desire to rock the boat. A resigned shrug and "well, law of the land" is much easier than "fuck this shit, heads are going to roll!"

And here we are, with at least two candidates for a presidential election presenting themselves to the electorate with the smoking blood of children dripping from their hands.

464 For all the people going on about the immolation of this reporter, please remember this:

The teacher in MA who was attacked, raped and killed by one of her students ended her life with the vermin raping her with a tree limb.

The defense successfully argued that since they couldn't prove that she was still alive, or that he definitely did it, they had to drop the charge.

The SS is attacking reporters at Hillary events and no one is charging anyone with shit. And notice that no reporters are howling either.

I do not, and should not care about any reporter being grabbed and manhandled. Why? Because they don't give a shit either. it's just a ploy to attack a political figure that they don't like.

No, it means it's political for you and your fellow Trump supporters, who are willing to ignore the law just because it's Trump. This is a prima facie case of misdemeanor battery, which means that the evidence is sufficient for conviction, barring new evidence (such as, for example, pictures of Michelle with the bruises before the event) coming to light at trial. The fact that it's "only" bruises is why it's misdemeanor, not felony.

I am curious, however, now that it is clear that Lewandowski lied, will teh Donald start calling him "Lyin Lewandowski" like "Lyin' Ted"? Because we know he hates him some liars. So it would be "hey, Lyin' Lewandowski, bring me my gold-plated coffee mug!", or "honey, Lyin' Lewandowski is coming to dinner with us tonight, so wear your arm and shin guards, OK?"

I think many professional plumbers use pipe dope, but when I've used it, it has set up and not exactly lived up to the Never-Seize hopes I had for them, I now use teflon tape because I can disassemble the fittings easily if necessary.

525 448 Bruce, I was thinking you were talking about shower curtain liners, not the actual curtain. Yes, I do wash my curtains, and I occasionally have tried washing the liners, but it never really gets them clean enough. I've tried laying them on the deck and scrubbing on my hands and knees. The best method by far is tossing them and buying new ones. Don't have to do it that often so worth it to me!

The good guys were trying to overturn the status quo and needed a 5-4 decision to get it. We know how Scalia would have voted.

Effect of 4-4 tie is "no precedential decision" and the status quo continues. But a similar case can be brought in the future. If so, the outcome will swing on who's the next SCOTUS appointee.

558 The trouble with The Trades is, no matter how many times Hillary sneers about the need for more plumbers, any and every time you speak up or out on a matter of public policy, snooty Dems are going to say, "What would you know? You're just a plumber." Like a GEICO ad, it's just what they do.

Unless you're in, like, Flint or Toledo, and the water is shut off. Then they listen.

Under my system, you wouldn't be able to take an Ideas degree (history, literature, philosophy, mathematics) unless you could prove you had a marketable skill (I had one when I started). And you shouldn't get your card in the trades unless you'd passed courses in managing your business, with an ethics section a little better and with more readings than typical MFA's get now. Shouldn't be hard to do.

At least two of the Pro-Socratic philosophers dealt with plumbing issues, mostly. And don't forget, Phythagoras told his disciples not to eat beans.

568 "But everyone was claiming "bruises" immediately. So, either the words were wrong, or the bruises were from an earlier time."

Or a later time, when she needed some marks as "proof" (good enough for Twitter and Megyn, not court). Did she show the marks on TV later ... or were the bruises already gone?

And why was her friendly photographer friend following Trump so doggedly close? He didn't even have his camera out. He has his arm around Fields right after the grab. Did she want contact and a witness?

Trump was done and leaving and she was impeding him. The other security guy has his hand on her before Cory, as she was definitely in Trump's space as he was leaving.

It's not likely to get a battery conviction. It's nothing. She wanted this blown out of proportion. And no it wouldn't have resulted in a fight had it been a guy, regardless of what Ace said.

The fate of Wallenberg, who would be 104 years old this year, has been shrouded in mystery since he was captured in 1945. He had helped save thousands of Jews from the Nazis by issuing them provisional Swedish passports so they could flee to Sweden.

Fer God's sake these are the kinds of people that think it's important to drone on about what a candidate eats, listens too for music, how many times they take a crap... of course an unusual grab by a guy most wouldn't normally associate with taking such an action is gonna get their attention and be written about.

Don't you hate it when the facts contradict the narrative?

Now if they could sell him as a white black .... hmmm....

Posted by: Soona at March 29, 2016 12:51 PM (Fmupd)


Funny, but as a candidate agnostic and a frequent Rush listener, that's the way I see. He talks about Trump more as an example and reminder of GOPe incompetence than he does as the only candidate capable of leading out of the darkness.

He (Rush) is also giving us a play by play preview of the GOPe's perfidy as they plan to anoint a solid severely principled conservative Uniparty compatible candidate at the convention!

I disagree, he hasn't formally endorsed but he clearly has a favorite in this race. He defends Trump at every opportunity.

I mean we're about to nominate a Republican that makes no bones he wants Universal health care and says Planned Parenthood does great things and won't cut off funding.

691 636 The Swedish Tax Authorities said it is ready to declare Raoul Wallenberg dead, more than 70 years after the diplomat, who helped rescue thousands of Hungarian Jews at the end of the Second World War, was captured by Soviet forces in Budapest.

The fate of Wallenberg, who would be 104 years old this year, has been shrouded in mystery since he was captured in 1945. He had helped save thousands of Jews from the Nazis by issuing them provisional Swedish passports so they could flee to Sweden.

Thank you for sharing that.

I get really frustrated at history classes that spend 2/3 of the school year on pre 1915 history, and then in the last two months, charge through everything that happened after that. There is so much, especially in WWII and Cold War history that has come out recently, and that has a direct impact on our current events, that kids never learn unless they initiate it. And with current education practices, teachers have sucked the joy out of learning so that many never bother.

It's just that he couldn't stop talking about Trump, and it was mostly positive coverage. One exception is when Trump said no one in Congress liked Cruz, and Rush gently rebuked him for that.

Oh, I agree. I think he greatly admires Cruz. Which is why it sucks so much that he practically ignored him (and others) to go on and on about shiny new Trump.

I maintain that he could still have talked less about the same topic (for 3 whole hours! ) and still gotten his monster ratings.

She was never held to account for her fetish of creating weird events and conspiracies in her "reporting."

I am fairly certain Col West did not grope her, and I am also certain the NYPD was not engaged in a campaign of targeted harassment against her.

Short of an extended stay in intensive care via assault(which I do NOT condone) nothing that happened to her would interest me.

The same media that ignored Hillary!'s campaign's "no touch" problem is pretending this is akin to Death Squads in South America.

762 It gets worse for Lyin' Lewandowski. Once he is convicted of misdemeanor battery, he will be open to a defamation lawsuit (actually, he already is, but his conviction will seal the deal). He went on Twitter, lied about what happened, and called Fields delusional. I don't know what other statements/tweets he may have made, but since he appears to have all the legal cunning of a sardine, there are most likely others that will be dredged up as well. It will be easy for Fields to show damages. Rut roh, can you say "general and punitive damages"?

Teh Donald was smarter, and threw the word "probably" into his own statement on the subject (at least that's how I remember it), so he probably won't be named directly, although he might be called to testify. Heh.

What happened here, was caught on tape. The story didn't become a story until what happened was denied to have happened and then the pile on by people supporting the person doing the denying and trashing the person who said that it happened.

It shouldn't be a story at all. Fields didn't make it a story. The rat fuck who yanked her arm and denied doing it made it a story. The people who supported the rat fuck helped.

809 (Gen 18:22-33)
So the men turned from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the LORD.

Then Abraham drew near and said, "Will you indeed sweep away the righteous with the wicked?

Suppose there are fifty righteous within the city. Will you then sweep away the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous who are in it?

Far be it from you to do such a thing, to put the righteous to death with the wicked, so that the righteous fare as the wicked! Far be that from you! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do what is just?"

And the LORD said, "If I find at Sodom fifty righteous in the city, I will spare the whole place for their sake."

Abraham answered and said, "Behold, I have undertaken to speak to the Lord, I who am but dust and ashes.

Suppose five of the fifty righteous are lacking. Will you destroy the whole city for lack of five?" And he said, "I will not destroy it if I find forty-five there."

Again he spoke to him and said, "Suppose forty are found there." He answered, "For the sake of forty I will not do it."


Then he said, "Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak. Suppose thirty are found there." He answered, "I will not do it, if I find thirty there."

He said, "Behold, I have undertaken to speak to the Lord. Suppose twenty are found there." He answered, "For the sake of twenty I will not destroy it."

Then he said, "Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak again but this once. Suppose ten are found there." He answered, "For the sake of ten I will not destroy it."

And the LORD went his way, when he had finished speaking to Abraham, and Abraham returned to his place.

It's still about how Michelle Fields is nothing more than a crappy reporter and how the implication is that Fields deserved it because she's a crappy reporter and how it wouldn't have matter whether the guy apologized or not and how he was therefore justified because it makes me feel better to justify this behavior because of my hatred for the media who, by extension, she personifies.

852 The odds were good that Lonnie Holmes, 21, would be the next person to kill or be killed in this working-class suburb north of San Francisco.

Four of his cousins had died in shootings. He was a passenger in a car involved in a drive-by shooting, police said. And he was arrested for carrying a loaded gun.

But when Holmes was released from prison last year, officials in this city offered something unusual to try to keep him alive: money. They began paying Holmes as much as $1,000 a month not to commit another gun crime.

I don't give a shit about Michelle Fields. I've probably seen her four times on TV. She may be the most disreputable reporter to ever have walked the earth. But what she said happened, happened.

875 The problem is this issue once again gets us off the topics that Americans care about.

There are pundits who think that a radio show host "owned" Trump because essentially Trump is disliked by women because the names he called Rosie O'Donnell years ago.

What these pundits don't get is Republican women are probably against Trump for less trivial reasons than that.

Like his efforts to divert the conversation with Manhattanite cocktail chatter when he is asked if he will use nuclear weapons against ISIS.

That's why that one commercial was probably a failure.

And this current contretemps still distracts from the bigger issues.

Cruz probably will not be able to rise above it because he didn't follow the lead of Walker, Perry, Jindal and others who knew that the Trump campaign was reckless.

Posted by: Mr Macca Bean at March 29, 2016 01:44 PM (4ng05)

I wouldn't say it clearly did. It happened in process but not severity. Before I saw the video, I figured she had been or almost been tossed to the ground. When we finally saw a clear shot of what happened, it was extremely anti-climatic.

Trump supporters were the ones claiming she said something else.

Her story was whatever it was.

The unhinged anti-Trumpers, who were pushing the event as deeply meaningful evidence of Trump's fourth reich aspirations, rolled out the story leading with the transcript of the first video where the guy she's talking to says something to the effect of 'he threw you to the ground'.

If you don't like the fact that the bar was set too high on this event, blame the people who pushed the exaggeration first. Once that was done, when the video came out and clearly that had not happened, their credibility on that, and all related, matters was burnt.

That is a good passage. Thanks for posting it, OM. I am not sure who our Abraham is if there is just one. On the other hand, Abraham is described as being a "friend of God" and God shares some of his secrets with Abraham as indeed good friends share secrets with others. David is described as being a "man after God's own heart", but as far as I know only Abraham is described in that way, except when Jesus at the last supper says, II no longer call your servants but friends. (And that point in the amount Judas has left to betray Jesus; He wasn't Jesus' friend) Imagine that, we can all be friends to God by our love and discipleship. and so perhaps we can "argue" with God too.?

919 From Drudge: A man described as a top German journalist says:


I've been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public.

But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia - this is a point of no return and I'm going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past,

He goes on to say that he lied for the CIA to propagandize against Russia. There are two problems with this. 1) Any way you cut this, he's a liar. 2) It sure looks to me like it's more covering up for Obozo's good buddy, Rootin' Tootin' Putin than bad mouthing him.

The complaint was not the same as the original complaint, i.e. being dragged to the ground

What she claimed, here:
http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2016/03/10/3276486/


Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken.

The video does show a grab and that she takes a few steps back. Beyond that, I find her account exaggerated, and the entires news story to be blown out of proportion.

It is proven what they do, there is no political recourse to correct it. They are insulated from economic sanction by the conglomerates they work for. They are second as a threat to our Republic only to the unelected, unaccountable civil servants who are regulating our economy to death.

Our elected "leaders" refuse to treat them as the professional liars they are.

979 The whole Michelle Fields thing is an unforced error on the part of the Trump campaign and Trump's most overenthusiastic supporters.


Fields said somebody grabbed her and almost caused her to lose her balance. Contemporaneously she posted a picture of the bruises on her arm from the event. Instead of acknowledging an especially trivial event, the Trump campaign denied it had happened and challenged Fields to press charges, which she has done.



Being accused of lying is a serious deal for a journalist. They really have nothing to sell but their access and their credibility.


If the Trump campaign had just behaved like normal people instead of like the lynch mob that went after George Zimmerman, Trump would not be facing this particular problem at this point in time. Will this be the issue that keeps Trump from getting 1237 delegates? I guess we will find out. The thing is that it was entirely avoidable if somebody had used some common sense and judgement.

Actually, I have read (I think Ben Stein was the guy who wrote the article) that many Hollywood moguls and stars prefer hookers precisely to avoid the situation you describe. They want to screw many women and believe that since they are wealthy celebs they should be able to have zillions of one night stands . But they are not too crazy about the idea that the women they bed want a bit more than that. Even very pricey whores are cheaper than dating a golddigger who later hits you for child support.

I can pretty much guarantee that Lewandowski will be found guilty of assault(since anymore, assault includes saying mean words). He will likely be put on probation and fined. It will take several months for this to go to trial. After all, he is a man, she is a woman, and her testimony counts far more than his does. If she says he assaulted her, then by golly, he did.

1042 Meanwhile
chick reporters are happy to come into locker rooms where male athletes
shower and such, privacy being a sometime thing.

Seriously? Which teams? I love baseball.....

All of them. Some asshole judge ruled that letting male reporters into locker rooms, but not female, violated their rights. You'd think at a minimum the judge could have insisted that all parties be nude, just to level the playing field, as it were. But no. Because patriarchy.

1043 I would like to see a thread on how Kasich is fucking insane! Telling Cruz and Trump to drop out when he has the least amount of delegates? I mean come on man! There's something wrong upstairs.

1044 A case is presented to you. A battery is alleged. There are pre prepared forms where the deputy puts in the pertinent info and *deletes* that which does not apply.
Hands, fists, feet, and I guess now mouth, are standard alleged weapons in a battery. The facts alleged his hand. Either the filing deputy or the secretary forgot to delete the other language if indeed it is included in the complaint.

It is only a big deal because the Trump campaign said it never happened when, in fact, it seems almost certain that the event did happen pretty much exactly the way that Michelle Fields described it.


When much of Donald Trump 's potential voters are people who are sick and tired of being lied to, it is probably not the best strategy to lie to them. The lie is no big deal to the Kool Aid drinking fanbois but at this point, I am not sure that there are enough of them to overcome Trump 's negatives among women and get the 1237 delegates he needs to avoid a brokered convention which will never pick him or Cruz when they can nominate yet another establishment squish to lose in November.

1046 She must bruise really easily then.

AND, she bruises very fast, like immediately IIRC!

1047 Yes, I am bereft of any training in security.

Yes, I hold only degrees in political science.

Pray tell, how was I supposed to know that the proven method of getting someone out of your way is to actually push them?

So I grabbed and pulled? A pox on me. I shall work on it. Really, I will.

But I blame the temptress. That bewitching reporter held out her delicate arm, with her smooth skin that smelled so clean and cast an intoxicating allure my way. My doughy, uncalloused hand immediately bonded with her unblemished skin, causing me to clutch at her like a hell-cursed demon clutches at the bannister of a stairway to heaven. I had no alternative but react by clutching at the bewitching vixen. Who could blame me? My animal instincts were aroused.

I am innocent -- innocent I say. Free me and my poet's heart. Let me roam the Earth and forever proclaim: Vote Trump! Vote Trump! Vote Trump!

(Thunderous applause)

1053 We had a rag man in our neighborhood back in upstate NY in the 40s. Scared the hell out of little kids. We were told that if we didn't behave the rag man would get us. Try that today on the special snowflakes.
