THIS FASCINATED ME!!! A Judge is offering shortened terms if the inmate has a vasectomy! Or birth control implants…
What do you think of this?! Legal? Ethical? Good idea to prevent kids coming into the world with a con dad? WHAT?
Sessions has been on Trump’s side since early days of the campaign. Total loyalty. In June of this year, Sessions offered to resign because he knew Trump didn’t like him recusing himself. Instead, Trump waited a month and insulted him in public, not behind the scenes, where most presidents do their dirty work.
Trump despises the NY Times and never misses a chance to call it “failing”, “awful,” “lying,” “fake news,” etc…for a year, that’s pretty much all we’ve heard. So he invites them for an interview, this failing newspaper he despises, and slams Sessions.
What do we expect the Left to do with this? Is this their fault? Should we start blaming the Republicans who have so steadfastly, for months, stood up for Trump but are so clearly becoming disheartened, even Tucker CARLSON?
I’m eager to hear.
Some of you have blogged at Silverfiddle’s blog, and FreeThinke’s…..I believe Jersey McJones commented at those blogs…and that some of you will remember him and may have learned that he’s been fighting cancer.
Yesterday, at only 48 years old, Jersey lost his fight.
As FT emailed me just now, “Jersey was that rarity of rarities –– a lovable Liberal.”
Yes, he was. May he rest in peace and may God give his family comfort and some kind of peace after the initial terrible grief.
The blogosphere is less without Jersey.
