Stuff that caught my eye today:
After looking over what the judge said I have gained some hope. When I first heard that Nanny Bloomberg said that drinks can only be so big, I remember thinking 'who died and made him king?'. Turns out, the judge ruled that no one did. He directed his executive controlled health board to just make up the rule, when the rule making rightly belongs to the city council. That in a nutshell is how the the whole Obamacare and regulatory overreach of the EPA should have been handled on a national scale. That it wasn't indicates that we are still in serious trouble as a nation, and something is fundamentally broken in our system of checks and balances.
Faux Pas Fashion
This did get a smile out of me. The fact that the guy did not consciously wear the pro-Israel shirt to a tearful goodbye to the a communist despot makes it a little humorous. Not as funny as say wearing a 'If you voted for Obama because he's black your a racist' shirt and wondering southeast DC, but still funny. The fact that his persecution caused over half of the Jews in Venezuela to flee, and that he was good buddies with mid-east Jew killers makes it not so funny. That the people at not only knew that he despised Jews, but had that opinion too says much about his sad legacy.
Who even knew that Zimmerman was even actually facing a second trial? Seriously, given all the corruption and nonsense that incident has generated, it really is about time for the prosecuting attorneys to just let this one go and hope that no one remembers what a sad spectacle this arrest and prosecution has been or their role in it. I hope to God that Zimmerman finds a way to go after the cops, the prosecution, and even the Judge in a civil action for political theater they have enjoined against him. Then there is this:
(f) a lawyer engages in any other intentional conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation that seriously adversely reflects on the lawyer's fitness to practice.
