Breaking... Ferguson Police Department announces formation of their own bank

In an unrelated development, Eric Holder announced that it might be difficult to staff the ongoing investigation of the Ferguson Police Department, and those kinds of crimes are tough to prove anyway.

Can y'all do me a favor?

Last night, a poster accused me of a felony without supplying evidence. The post itself is not important (I'm not looking to start a flame war), but it was utter BS and it got hidden by a jury, as it should have been.

What surprised me is that it was only hidden by a 4-3 verdict. For an unsubstantiated (and utterly untrue) accusation of a serious crime.

So here's the favor: if you serve on a jury for a post where someone is accused of a crime, or even accused of being prejudiced against others (racist, sexist, etc), can you please think twice about leaving the thing alone unless solid evidence is presented?

Serious charges deserve serious evidence.

Thanks.

I think that Bernie Sanders wants to be on the debate stage with Hillary Clinton,

if Hillary runs. He wants to provide a little context when she (or any other Third Wayer) reminds us of important functional untruths, things like lobbyists representing real people like disabled children or whatever claptrap they spew this time around. Bernie'll remind us that 95% (or whatever) of lobbying cash is for the interests of the Predator Class. That sort of thing.

And if things happen to work out, I'm sure he'd by honored to do the Presidenting.

The funny thing is that if Bernie runs, I expect that Hillary won't. She'll know she'd have an impossible task in fleeing from her history as delivered unvarnished. But if Sanders and Hillary both do run, it'll be great entertainment.
