So in the movie Employee of the Month they work 31 consecutive days in a row with no days off? Seems logical! :rolleyes:
I don't think there's been a day in the past 3 or 4 months where I haven't done at least *some* work.

We appear to be on track!

Add it to the thing about weed and the DACA thing.

We will never hear about this again.
This one will be easy for Trump Inc. to downplay.

So, it's not required by law. I'm still curious whose policy that is. Insurance? It would be clearly unconstitutional if a government were somehow involved.

Yla,

Please let me know if (a) that's a state law, or (b) the policy of your healthcare provider. If (b), does the provider receive public funding? Is it a nonprofit?

Thanks.

I know what the James Gandolfini's of the world will say when it comes to Pete

I'm reserving judgment until T.I. weighs in on our guy Pete Butt.

You know what, Pete, I think that WOULD actually be a bit more of a departure from the norms than what Republicans have done up to this point.

Very true, but watch the resident lipderp lapdogs lap it up!

Check out Willie Mae's Scotch House for what both the James Beard Foundation and the Spracne Société Gastronomique have dubbed the best fried chicken in the world. Seriously, this is perhaps the only dish I've had where the hype it had going in was blown out of the water by the actual experience. It's like a virus that turns its hosts into devoted acolytes, so be forewarned.

Spracs, what if I told you that I ate at Willie Mae's this very evening?  Recommendo--get the fried okra or the beans as your side.

Other recommendo--go to Dooky Chase's for lunch. Similarly delicious fried chicken (dry batter vs wet) on a giant buffet lovingly prepared for you by a nonagenarian New Orleans institution, Leah Chase.

You seem like a big Tremé frequentuer :thumbs:

I'll be down there in a few weeks for mardi gras. I'll put your places on my list. Thanks wacky!

Revolution is imminent... Laws of reciprocity say so... Prayers are great... But when I’m wronged... get up off your knees and RIDE for ME!!!!! Be strong & Stay solid. We here for you Bro"

It's an interesting question of law. All judges profess to uphold the separation of powers, but in reality the jurisprudence is "squishy" (<-- super technical legal jargon). Sure, the purse strings belong to the Legislative branch, but the Executive branch has plenary authority over international affairs. Could they take that angle, and would it work? Lots of room for judges to rule however they want. Me personally, I think you have to take a pragmatic view and call this an unlawful usurpation of power by the Executive. Would be nice to get some good precedent in the books.

That guy should get more than a false report charge if true imo. Do we have hate crime laws for non violent crimes? He should get that if so. I know the UK/EU has a lot of that stuff on the books.

I think the American equivalent would be terroristic threats.

To be fair, this week's episode actually was pretty lame. But I bet what triggered him was the Schumer/Pelosi bit. The thought of people laughing at him behind his back makes him rage.

That was irresponsible of your mom not to cut them into smaller pieces. Some of those are big enough to choke on.

America loves a comeback story, his career is not over.

Considering the vast majority of Americans had no idea who this guy was before this incident, I don't see him ever shedding this scarlet letter. This is particularly disappointing because it simultaneously stokes racial animosity while making it harder for real victims to be believed. You really think he can survive this?

LOL.
Your first sentence is a real two America's perspective. To millions of Americans Smollet is just as recognizable as Will Arnett and Jason Sudekis (I literally had to look these dudes names up, recognize their faces, forgot their names).

Your second sentence should be put on a poster for white fragility. White people have been blaming black men for crimes they didn't commit literally every day since emancipation. We wanna take bets on how many of my people are locked up because some white person wanted to pin a crime on them that they didn't commit, how many lynched, executed by the government? When any of that happens do white people feel the need to blame them for stoking black distrust in the white power structure? GMAFB on "stoking racial animosity," anyone who uses this or any other false accusation didn't need this to fuel the animus. Black people are 12% of the population, it should be clear to all that we hold no keys in controlling what white people think about race relations.

I know you don't condone his actions, if indeed the allegations of a hoax are proven to be true. But thanks for reminding me we have an ugly history of prejudice in this country, and in too many cases unrelated to this instance, that pattern continues today. If you want to make this about that, then I'm outtie. If unrelated to this case, you want to point out other instances of black people being unfairly victimized by the justice system, then I'll gladly stand beside you and voice my strong disapproval. Have a great day.

What I want is for people to stop making this about anything but one dude and an elaborate lie. I don't want white people using these highly publicized hoaxes as a crutch for improved race relations.  The boy who cried wolf talking point is 100% unacceptable, I'll hear it from the dax's, ksuw's, and the 27's of this world, but well meaning liberals and moderates should be metaphorically smacked every time they do it.

This is exactly about one dude and a stupid lie (again, it's not 100% proven, but it's looking that way). I would prefer we simply keep it at that, and not make anyone else somehow culpable for one guy's idiocy. And I hope/expect people will call this dude out for taking advantage of raw emotions in this country that are based on very real grievances. His (apparent) actions are dumb and counterproductive to progress.
