Guice told the Clarion-Ledger, “I don’t do interviews.”

Dr. Carson on television saying that we won't believe how the attacks on Trump will build.  This coming from a man at the convention that tried to tell us, in earnest, that Hillary was a follower of the Devil?
Trump, desperate, will do anything to win.  First he wants his opponent jailed so no one could vote for them.  Today, when he falsely accused Hillary of trying to do away with the 2nd amendment (false, and impossible for any President), he tacticly  suggested that gun nuts take do something about it.

Kinda nice  to live in a country where we have no fear about expressing hatred of  our President.  Not sure we could do that safely in a country led by Trump.

Don't you hope our thin-skinned "law and order" candidate understands that we are free to criticize and say mean things about our President without fear of retaliation?  It's part of what makes America great, as many countries don't allow this.  And don't you hope he understands that even as President he makes no law of any kind, much less one disallowing criticism of him?  I'd hate to be the one to point this out to him.

Will someone please tell our orange candidate  and his followers that no President can "do away with" ANY amendment and to suggest same in public is mis-informing and confusing children who are trying to learn and get it right.  Teachers must be pulling their hair out.

Turns out Trump was spot on correct. Mexico, with it's own oil money, is building a wall to keep Trump and his supporters out of Mexico.  Canada and several European countries announced they will do the same.

I understand traffic ticket quotas. Though they deny it exists.   Maybe cops should also have a monthly quota on good cops arresting bad cops


Small towns are just a delight. This is one of my favorite photographs yet it got all photography banned in restaurant for all time.

Oh well. It banned itself right out of existence.

Rep. Jeff Guice: “Sick Children Should Die If Their Parents Can’t Afford Medical Supplies”

When a Mississippi mother sought help because she couldn’t afford to get supplies for her diabetic daughter’s insulin pump, state Rep. Jeff Guice (R) was less than helpful.
Nicole Nichols wrote to Guice and three other legislators when the company that usually supplied them with the needed supplies began to outsource their products to a company that is not covered under Medicaid. Nichols, like other struggling parents, are having a hard time coming up with the more than $2,000 a month needed to keep her 8-year-old daughter, Bella, healthy.
“We have recently begun having a lot of problems with Medicaid/CHIPS coverage for the essential diabetes supplies needed, not only to keep our kids healthy, but to keep them alive,” she wrote. “Is there someone in the legislature that can and will help these children stay healthy? They must have these medications and supplies which administer the medications to stay healthy and, quite honestly, alive!”

Out of the three representatives that she wrote to, Guice was the only one who responded so brutally.
“I am sorry for your problem,” he wrote. “Have you thought about buying the supplies with money that you earn?”
“He is a legislator within the state of Mississippi,” she said. “That he would not only think that way, but have the gall to hit the send button to a parent of a child and somebody who is not advocating just for my own child but for all of these kids.”
Both Bella and her father have diabetes and the family has a hard time getting by financially.
When asked for a comment, Guice told the Clarion-Ledger, “I don’t do interviews.”

British Man Reportedly Convicted Of Making Offensive Comments About Muslims On Facebook

Freedom_of_SpeechEngland flagEngland has seen the rise of calls for speech prosecutions, including calls from powerful politicians for crackdowns on insulting or offensive comments. We have previously discussed the alarming rollback on free speech rights in the West, particularly in England ( here and here and here andhere and here and here and here and here and here andhere and here). The rapid decline of free speech in England has been both chilling and frightening for civil libertarians as the country appears to have abandoned this once defining right of Western Civilization. Now, a Manchester man reportedly has been arrested and sentenced for making "grossly offensive" comments about Muslims on Facebook. Stephen Bennett, 39, (who has a Muslim mother-in-law and sister-in-law) has been sentenced to 180 hours of unpaid work and a 12-month community order for expressing his views.
