No Landslide

Real Lawyers Have Blogs 

A whole lot of Americans are NOT mean, petty and vindictive.  We just want a winner and a loser in the Presidential race.  It's not necessary to call for the arrest of one of them.

I  know why we post so many pictures of our cats and dogs.  It's about the only thing we are sure of on Facebook.  So many of the  memes I've posted with clever headlines that I like,  turn out, to my chagrin,  to be bogus and a waste of time. 


Saudi Arabia Sentences Egyptian For Sorcery

200px-Coat_of_arms_of_Saudi_Arabia.svgSaudi Arabia continues to remind the world of its continued belief in primitive superstitions and its adherence to a medieval Sharia legal system. A Saudi court has reportedly sentenced an Egyptian man to six years on charges of attempting to disturb public order, violating the kingdom's labor laws and communicating with a sorcerer to bewitch his employer. That's right, sorcery to bewitch his employer. On top of those charges, the Saudis reportedly charged the Egyptian of acquiring a secret military document listing the movements and names of Saudi troops and of emailing this document to the Iranian Embassy in Lebanon.


Enough About Ryan Lochte . . . Meet Piotr Malachowski

Given his long history of immature conduct and comments, the exhaustive media attention for Lochte may be much to do about nothing. A far more worthy subject is Polish Olympian Piotr Malachowski who isauctioning silver medal for boy with rare cancer. Malachowski has shown the true character of a Olympian.


Quebec Feminist Faces Trial Over Criticism Of Islamic School

Djemila_Benhabib01I have previously written (here and here) about how free speech is dying in the West, including the sanctioning of speech among our closest allies in France and England and Canada. The most recent case is out of Canada where a feminist author is facing a slander trial for merely expressing her contempt for an Islamic school. Djemila Benhabib, an award-winning author and past candidate for office in Quebec, is facing a demand for $95,000 from her for "greatly tarnishing" the image of the Muslim Schools of Montreal, a private institution that teaches elementary and high school. Her remarks occurred during a radio interview.



 Different Takes on Immigration in Trump's Texas Swing

The Big Conversation

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump wrapped up a daylong swing through Texas on Tuesday with a well-attended rally at the exposition center on the east side of Austin.
Earlier in the day, Trump made national headlines with an answer he gave to Fox News' Sean Hannity hinting at a move away from the hard-line stance on immigration on which he built his brand during the GOP nomination fight. "There certainly can be a softening because we're not looking to hurt people," Trump said, then adding, "We are going to follow the laws of this country."
As the Tribune's Patrick Svitek reported, Trump struck a more familiar tone at the Tuesday rally, "pledging to build a wall along the border and focus more on enforcing immigration law than the current administration does."
Earlier in the day, Trump was in Fort Worth, where he raised about $1 million at a fundraising luncheon and drew an unusual act of support along the way. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that a Mansfield pastor named Rives Grogan "stripped down to Texas-flag design swim trunks and shouted support for Trump, as he carried signs encouraging Texans to 'Vote Trump,' 'Stop Abortion,' 'Vote the Bible' and 'Vote Traditional Marriage.'”

The vote may be more favorable to Mr. Trump than some prognosticators suggest, since landslides don't really happen in presidential elections anymore.
