If Supreme Court Justices can decide cases based on their Christian religion perhaps...

... it should be expanded to include Justices of all religions. The list of unrepresented religions is very large but shouldn't they also have a vote if we allow Christians that privilege? By the way, I was raised as a Christian.

If Georgia legal system can do this, why can't Jan 6th rioters be sentenced like this?

Taken from Macon Telegraph on 9 March 2022. This is a great news paper and I read it cover to cover every morning.
"A 31 year old man accused of blowing his coronavirus relief loan on a Pokemon card will spend the next three years in prison after he pleaded guilty to felony fraud charges in Georgia. Vinath Oudomsim was sentenced to three years in prison followed by three years of supervised release, the US Attorneys Office for the Southern District of Georgia said in a news release on Monday March 7. He was also ordered to pay $85,000 in restitution-the total value of the Economic Injury Disaster Loan he received as part of the alleged scheme..."
Apparently the Pokemon card he bought has sold in the past for as much as $369,000

I don't remember if I saw it here or elsewhere. Anyone know where I can find it?

It was a photo of a Capital Policeman with his gun drawn and pointed with a member of congress cowering behind him with one hand up and looking like he is terrified. He is also a congressman who now claims it was just peaceful visitors during the Jan 6th assault. I don't remember his name either. I meant to go back to it but got busy for a couple of days and then couldn't find it.

I could not believe many of the comments I received earlier today about General Flynn.

So I sent the following letter to the current, Joint Chief of Staff General Mark A. Milley.

Sir,
I am a retired 20 year active duty military veteran who also served another 21 years in Civil Service Acquisitioning of the latest military weapon systems and support equipment, traveling all over the world to introduce field personnel to the latest hardware and software. I have also served as a a witness in the court martial of a Technical Sargent under my supervision for simply not returning his wife' phone calls, for which charges were fortunately dropped.
For as long as I can remember, the military has routinely recalled retired personnel for court martial for various actions they took while on active duty. In most cases, it is enlisted men and rarely an officer.
General Michael Flynn committed treason while on active duty and again since his retirement. I fail to see why he is not recalled and court martialed as an enlisted man would be.
Very Respectfully yours.

I fail to understand why General Michael Thomas Flynn has not been recalled to active duty and

court martialed for treason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Does anyone have an answer or suggestion as to why not?

My wife is having a total hip joint replaced tomorrow but...

...when we saw Dr. this morning, he told her the option of rescheduling because due to the hospital being full, she would have to go home immediately after the surgery as there were no beds. She told him no, she had already waited a long time to get done and wanted to proceed.
Middle Georgia just continues to drain the gene pool with "No Maskers" because they just don't believe the risk is real.

Could the 14th Amendment stop a 2024 Trump run?

Some Democrats appear to think so.
The Hill reported Friday that at least a dozen lawmakers have been holding meetings and speaking, both publicly and privately, about whether or not it would be possible to use Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to permanently bar Trump from seeking a second term.
The clause bars someone from holding office if they:
Have "previously taken an oath" to "support the constitution," and...
"Engaged in insurrection or rebellion" against the United States
Legal scholars are split on how to implement the provision a controversial task, to say the least. There are currently three ideas floating around Capitol Hill:
1. A simple majority vote in both chambers of Congress that found Trump guilty of fomenting the insurrection would be enough to bar him from public office.
2. A "neutral" fact-finding body would have to determine whether Trump officially engaged in an "insurrection "or "rebellion" a task for either a Congressional panel or federal court.
3. Local election officials could use Section 3 on a state-by-state basis to take Trump's name off their ballots if he were to run again in 2024.
It's unclear how well any of this would work the effort would face a major hurdle at the U.S. Supreme Court, which maintains a conservative majority after Trump appointed three justices to the bench during his four years in office.

I'm sure someone on here knows the answer.

I thought the Attorney General was supposed to give a briefing TODAY of the on going investigation into the insurrection at Congress. Did I get the day wrong? I haven't seen anything about it on the news. Thanks.

Chilling Trump Letter Calling For 'Seizure' Of Election Material Revealed In Log To Jan. 6 Probers

I just can't understand why at least...

...one single republican cannot tell Schumer to call for the BBB vote and he or she will vote for it, because it will help their state. When it finally gets passed and republicans start taking credit for it, Dems should plaster those republican states with billboards that say they voted no!
