Well, we’ve (nearly) made it to yet another October. So, what does that mean? (1) The summer that officially ended last week might actually feel like it ended in the next couple of weeks. (2) Time to stop by Pep Boys for a gallon of pumpkin spice washer fluid. (3) The new SCOTUS sitting is here! The new SCOTUS sitting is here! After their first conference this past Monday (and an orders list yesterday that included grants of cert in nine cases for the term), The sometimes-semi-Magnificent Seven Plus One-for-now officially gets started next week, with eight cases scheduled for… Read more »

The CVSG and then cert grant on Endrew F. v. Douglas County is one I’ll follow. An autistic boy’s parents enrolled him in private school after disagreeing with the IEP the district was willing to implement. The 10th applied a standard in which “more than de minimis” improvement was all that is required to be provided by the school district in the IEP. Other circuits have disagreed. A CVSG means that the Court wants to hear the official position not just of the parties, but of the US Government, as vested in the Executive Branch (Solicitor General). Obama’s SG comes… Read more »

Only 40 days until the media obsession with 2020 elections begins.

Ginny links to a story about Trump saying he only wanted pretty cart girls at his club. Fine. We are asked to take the word of the source. Same with Miss Venezuella. She said Trump made insulting statements, too. All of this is to be believed because they said it did. Right? Good. Then you better believe Juanitta Broderick, too, when she says the First Preditor told her to put some “ice on that” and when countless other women tell of their real horror stories of Hilly trying to ruin their lives after speaking out. Hilly is not and has… Read more »

Objective media Noway, less the objectiveness.

Another good example, the attack on Trump about possibly dealing with Cuba through a consultant in 1998. If true, so what. Trump was exploring the future potential of opening a resort on a nearby tropical island.

So why would Trump think to explore this potentially lucrative travel market (something the intrepid Newsweek hit dog failed to analyze)? Maybe it had something to do with the president at that time lifting some sanctions on the Castro regime – http://www.cnn.com/WORLD/9803/19/cuba.us.clinton/. But nobody questions the Clintons and their motives.

If true, so what. Trump was exploring the future potential of opening a resort on a nearby tropical island. Well, interestingly enough it’s *gasp* against the law and he ran it through some shell companies in order to prevent people from finding out he was *gasp* breaking the law. If the Trump campaign is is going to tout an AP article that tried to turn the act of making a phone call on behalf of a Nobel Prize winner into evidence of “pay for play” politics, I think it’s perfectly fair for people to focus on this Newsweek article. By… Read more »

1) How do Bill Clinton’s actions have anything to do with Hillary Clinton and her ability to successfully serve as President of the United States? 2) If we’re taking everyone at their word, when will the Trump campaign address Ivana Trump’s rape allegations against him? I mean, gotta believe everyone, right? 3) I think the body of Clinton’s career shows that she’s been an ally to women and girls and outweighs whatever instances the Trump campaign will likely point to. 4) The Republicans lost this fight in 1998. A brief refresher: both Clinton’s approval ratings went up as a result… Read more »

It is Hilly we’re talking about. It’s her vicious attacks on his accusers that show her true colors surrounding her supposed “defense” of women.

I see you are in the 46 percent of the citizenry who refuses to live in the real world. The media bubble is powerful indeed. The right wing echo chamber absorbs every horrid quote, every illegal, immoral act and polishes up the Trump turd shiny and new.

I hope the pay is good for you Trump shills. The karma will still be a bitch.

Quick question for the ATL area people. I just sat through a meeting on the new Sandy Spring city center project (theater, city hall and offices) on Roswell road. Any thoughts on the project?

Yep. Roswell Rd is going to become the epicenter of traffic hell.

From what I remember from earlier talks, I’d say it’s a good plan, and a great first step towards making a downtown sandy springs to rival that of Marietta or Decatur.

Ever the narcissistic putz, Bubba makes Air Force One wait for him in the tarmac. Some things never change. He’s gonna be a sideshow if Hilly wins. What a continuing national embarrassment!

Hillary calls Sanders/Trump supporters negative names, the media says nothing, yet Trumps comments on an overweight woman and gets busted for a week. Love that liberal “fairness.” Joseph Goebbels would be in awe…

1) i just watched plenty of direct coverage of HRC’s remarks; 2) Trump is heavily responsible for keeping his issue alive; and 3) the reference to Goebbels is inappropriate and offensive, but does reveal a dangerous extremism in your mentality and understanding. in most other internet forums, i wouldn’t bother, but in this one, i’d ask that nazi references be carefully vetted.

Give some that sage advice to your party’s nominee! Lol! She can refer to Repubs as “terrorists” and wanting to put immigrants in “boxcars”. Nary a peep from the Libs. Typical.

Nothing is more Presidential than holding tight to and a compulsion to have to respond to a slight from Rosie O’Donnell.

sorry- i was too busy reviewing all of the clearly anti-Semitic pandering and/or reckless conduct from Trump. that said, it’s not that analogies to Nazi behavior are off-limits per se. but they need to be on point and truly analogous. so HRC calling out mass deportation of ethnic minorities is arguably a fair allusion. saying -say- CNN’s coverage is intentionally favorable to one candidate- it doesn’t come near to rising to the level of advocating mass ethnic-based horrors as Goebbels did. Nazi references should be invoked as a way to reach the goal of “Never Again” repeating the massive horrors… Read more »

Sunday morning is no time for Godwin’s Law.

Trump is suffering now because he’s too stupid to keep his mouth shut when he should. A simple ‘that was a long time ago, I wish her well’ would have made his whole problem go away, which fact every other candidate ever knows but is apparently beyond Trump. He’s more concerned with settling accounts of 20 years ago than running for president. He’s a loser.

What did Clinton do, call Sanders people ‘idealistic’? Now that’s really cruel.

“Hillary Clinton’s only loyalty is to her financial contributors and to herself,” Trump said. “I don’t even think she’s loyal to Bill, if you want to know the truth.”

Trump has never even been loyal to his wives. Talk, Donnie, talk.
