He leans forward on his knees with spread legs when sitting without a desk because he thinks it hides his gut. The steepling is just something to do with his hands, I guess, but it is also a body language signal that is supposed to project superiority and power, as opposed to clasping hands which suggests defensiveness.

Because we may have our guesses and speculation and innuendo, but the fact of the matter is that the only people who actually know what’s going on in their marriage are the two of them, perhaps some Secret Service agents, and whoever they’re cheating with, if they are.

Florida Pastor Accused of Sexually Assaulting Two Teenagers in Rutherford County (Tenn.) (Goes to WSMV TV Channel 4)

MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

A Florida pastor is accused of sexually assaulting two teens in Rutherford County.

According to a police report, Pastor David Rowan was a guest speaker at a church in the area.

During an interview with detectives, he said the 14-year-old and 15-year-old victims looked up to him for spiritual guidance.

According to police, Rowan asked the sisters to get a hamburger and milkshake back in 2014. Their mother gave them permission.

Rowan then allegedly took the young women to a local hotel, which is where police say he “took advantage of the girls’ trust and naivety” and molested them.

Rowan is facing multiple charges. He is currently awaiting extradition from a jail in north Florida.

Because we may have our guesses and speculation and innuendo, but the fact of the matter is that the only people who actually know what’s going on in their marriage are the two of them, perhaps some Secret Service agents, and whoever they’re cheating with, if they are.

And unless any of them are among the people being surveyed, the only accurate answer remains…

“Don’t know.”

Well, if there was a trial, there is more than enough evidence to convict Trump of infidelity, exhibit 1 being the EW tape.

Seriously…I think part of the back end of “arm the teachers” is that it will drastically change who goes into the job, another way of completely changing the function and functioning of education.

And I stand by my earlier assessment. This isn’t about mass shooters, it’s about another advance in the ever-expanding definitions of who gets deserved to be shot, when. If the measure of threat is a subjective read by an amateur shooter, and the system encourages and shields that judgement, who dies will reflect the prejudices and preconceptions of the larger (unhealthy, biased) society.

Check my math, check my facts. Don’t want to get it wrong. Dept of Education says there are about 150,000 school buildings in the U.S, including private schools and college. Put an average of 10 guards per school (less for small, more for universities), that means we need 1.5 million guards. Jobs jobs jobs. Figure pay plus benefit plus all the training and management etc. plus equipment totals $100,000 each. So that means we spend $150 BILLION per year (not including metal detectors/up-armoring schools) so some fat fuck in camouflage can have fun on the weekend. Plus overthrow tyranny of course.

I hear “arm the teachers!” and I think of that shooting last year where the cops were stuck clearing every single “good guy” at a Wal-Mart while the shooter was out walking the streets because they had to consult the security camera footage.

I also think of all the wingnuts who are already convinced that “liberal” teachers abuse their authority to “brainwash” their students. How long before you have the future Young Republican in the class insisting that the “liberal” teaching the class uses his gun to silence dissent and has threatened to shoot any students who question him?

Dave Daubenmire (“Coach Dave”) is a first-class wingnut preacher. He is well-known amongst many of we outspoken atheists as to why Christianity has a problem attracting and maintaining membership (Christian churches refuse to call out people such as him).

As long as only individual Christians call people out like him, and not churches themselves, churches will continue to lose membership (churches are seen more and more as fifth columnists).

There is nothing to prevent a church or a church organisation from speaking out to say “people like this man do not represent what we believe.” The fact no church body takes an official stand against people like Dave Daubenmire, Creflo Dollar, Joel Olsteen, &c says more about churches than it does about atheism …

Will they have a gun in their hand at all times? If not where will the gun be?

Democrat Margaret Good won a special election in Florida by 7 points on February 20, taking a Florida senate seat.

That represents the thirty-sixth state seat taken by Democrats from the GOP.

yourobserver.com (more at the link)

Democrat Margaret Good won the Florida House of Representatives District 72 special election on Tuesday, taking a seat that’s long been in GOP control and capping a campaign that attracted national attention and stronger-than-average voter turnout.

Good heads to Tallahassee to take her seat with less than half the 2018 legislative session remaining. She plans to take her seat and join the session Wednesday.

“We won for the people who, like me, have had it with our state government and want to see some change,” Good told supporters Tuesday night at an election night party. “With this win, we’re saying ‘enough has been enough’.”

Good, a Sarasota lawyer and first-time candidate, secured 52.17% of the vote. Republican James Buchanan finished second with 44.8% and Libertarian Alison Foxall finished third with 3%.

Bernie’s comments are pretty unequivocal, I’ll grant him that (except for a brief whiff of manure about that “campaigned hard for Hillary” bit) - I’d be more impressed if it didn’t seem like he’d been shamed into making the statement, but there we are.

My great fear is that the ultimate findings of the investigation will be that Trump had no clue what his staff were up to; that his “hire the best people” bullshit was so totally ignorant that he was just the dupe all along…

If his kids go down and take his empire with them it will all be worth it.

Ultimately that’s probably the best that can be hoped for. America’s not ready to send a president to prison, even after their term is concluded. The US media would never allow their biggest cash cow to be removed.

re: #239 Targetpractice

By the way, the response of shooters like Cruz to armed teachers? Kevlar. Most teachers are going to armed themselves with 9mm or lighter firearms because the recoil is manageable and it will be easier to attain the sort of precision that any insurance company crazy enough to take on a school system requiring armed teachers will insist upon. So that “lone wolf” is gonna invest in type II body armor and now that teacher who’s been drilled on aiming center-mass is SOL.

Democrat Margaret Good won a special election in Florida by 7 points on February 20, taking a Florida senate seat.

That represents the thirty-sixth state seat taken by Democrats from the GOP.

yourobserver.com (more at the link)

It sure is good to see all these wins in the lower elected state positions. And many many of them are women. I saw Cecile Richards on Ari’s show tonight and she was real proud of that fact. She said it is the highest number of women to run for elected office in this country’s history.

So, instead of figuring a way to reduce gun violence, the GOP/NRA/Trump solution is to put armed folks into schools.

That didn’t prevent Parkland.

In fact, it didn’t prevent attempted assassinations of Reagan, Ford, etc.

It didn’t prevent other school shootings where cops or armed security was present.

Mass shootings aren’t prevented by having more guns available.

Arming teachers just means that a shooter is likely to take out teachers first and take their guns to add to their own. After all, many teachers conduct class with their backs to the students as they write on the whiteboards. Shooters will have the initiative, even when you’ve got folks who are trained.

Teachers aren’t going to be SWAT team trained, and practice so regularly that they can handle active shooter situations.

And schools are just one of a nearly infinite places where mass shootings can happen.

This does nothing to improve security or safety. It’s security theater.

It’s worse than security theater.

If implemented as stated, this will get kids hurt or killed, just in a different way.

Always, what is underneath is: who is entitled to use lethal force? How do they learn to discern when to use lethal force? Who deserves use of lethal force and why?

Because—and I know I’m repeating myself a lot—the mostly likely result of this is going to be like the result of the vigilante and “warrior cop” ethos but worse: who will be judged deserving of hard discipline will reflect not who is actually dangerous, but how society blames chaos on stigmatized groups.

He was convicted on one count of lying to federal agents, and retried on 23 others due to a mistrial/hung jury. In that second trial, he was convicted on 11 counts related to selling the seat and 6 counts related to fundraising extortion. Apparently in the second trial he took the stand, and members of the jury found him to be manipulative and otherwise untrustworthy.

From space, however, these human-made “heat islands” and the web of roads that connects them are clearly visible.

Parkland student during listening session with President Trump: “How is it this easy to buy this type of weapon? How have we not stopped this after Columbine, after Sandy Hook?”

That young man was wanting so much to tell everyone where they could put their guns. And I think he even went against the thinking of the mother of his murdered friend that he went with to the meeting.

I’m not sure how to do that. As long as the I Amendment protects speech as long as it is not libelous, slanderous, or criminal, you can say pretty much anything you want.

All I can see that can be done is more lawsuits when libel or slander occur, and not settling out-of-court to ensure a judgement against those who spread lies.

I wouldn’t be surprised if someone at CPAC was running a gun raffle.

We had a gun raffle here in my town last year to raise money, the prize was an AR-15 from the gun shop (the guy I beat in the last election).

I bought $25 worth of tickets from him (the fund raiser was for the public library). He asked me what I would do with an AR-15 if I won it.

I told him “have it cut up at the machine shop.” I didn’t win the rifle, but the fellow who did had it cut up himself.

More guns didn’t stop attempted assassination of Reagan.

How many USSS were there with uzis and handguns? How many Capitol Police?

Didn’t matter; he was shot anyways, along with several others (including Brady).

Ford had multiple attempts on his life despite similar USSS protections.

All those guns didn’t deter or prevent shootings.

Then you’ve got the mass shootings where cops were specifically targeted. Dallas comes to mind.

Then there were the targeted killing of cops, such as when a NYPD officer was killed while sitting in their patrol car. The gun didn’t stop him from being killed (and the assailant got the drop on him).

Oh look, another lovely bonus of concealed-carry in places of education -_-

A holstered pistol left Tuesday in a women’s bathroom at the University of Texas McCombs School of Business has been claimed by a student who has a license to carry a handgun, according to UT police.

Meanwhile, the police said Wednesday that they received another report of a pistol found unattended in a women’s bathroom, this time at the Commons Learning Center on UT’s Pickle Research Campus, about 9 miles north of the main campus.

Police said they would work with the Texas Department of Public Safety and the dean of students to determine the “future course of administrative action” regarding the student who claimed the handgun left on top of a toilet paper dispenser in a restroom stall at the McCombs Graduate School of Business building.

Another Republican caught in a sex scandal, this time in Utah. He was arrested in a prostitution sting one week after another Republican stepped down from his office.

The Iron County, Utah GOP Treasurer was arrested after paying $100 for sex.

This is the third prostitution story for conservatives in one week in Utah.

My issue isn’t prostitution, which would probably work better if it was regulated or licensed, it’s conservative “family values” BS. That is just adverts for the voters; they’re hypocrites.

Enact the NRA’s own safety rules as law, with penalties for breaking them. Negligently leaving a gun behind in a bathroom would qualify as not being in control of your weapon.

There would be real, raw emotion. They picked somebody that is effectively useless to throw under the bus so they could live to fight another day.

Say it Rubio you will take the money.

He own goaled by saying they support people they agree with.Then tried to say he doesn’t agree with everything “that organization” (wouldn’t even name it) wants. Yeah, he’s taking every dime and is too cowardly to say “yeah, I’ll take it.”

I have strep. Awesome. Suggestions on how to deal with a seriously sore throat until the antibiotics do their work?

If it swells, you will need prednisone to keep it open.

Wish it were an OT:
My college freshman son who should have gotten out of his Physics class at 9 pm just texted me. Not to say he was heading for the light rail, as normal. To say he and two friends are in friend’s car, just left campus and heading to a nearby grocery store ‘to regroup.’ Because they left in a hurry, because there was an announcement: “There is an emergency on campus. Evacuate immediately.”

Says that’s all he knows. Says he’s safe.

Waiting for the next text, with my blood pressure rising.

(Now back to comment #256 or so as I try to catch up on this very long thread. I wasn’t going sleep well tonight anyway.)

“As someone who campaigned hard for Secretary Clinton…”

WTF? Has Bernie been taking GOP lessons in lying your ass off. Every time he says something he reminds me why I would never have voted for him.
