Maybe Acosta trips in the men’s room, face down into a toilet . . . then the lid slams down on his head & he drowns in someone else’s urine . . .

. . . It IS within the realm of possibility.

They can make it real simple for him.   Put him in the back of the room,  never take a question from him.    Real easy. 

Judge never said anything about answering any questions.   Just ignore him no matter what he says or does.

Excellent musician.

While I never cared for his music, I could appreciate his picking skills.

RIP, Roy.

Same here.

One of the few prejudices I picked up from my father was a disdain for the country bumpkin stereotype that was popularized in Hee Haw. I believe it came from the fact that he was born into the wilds of Montana and raised himself up by his own bootstraps. He was chagrined to watch the characters on that show. As a consequence of the soft bias I had little interest in the show or in country music.

As I got older and my horizons expanded I came to revisit performers like Glenn Campbell and Roy Clark and my appreciation for their talent was raised.

Rest in peace Roy

"Today, the court made clear that there is no absolute First Amendment right to access the White House. In response to the court, we will temporarily reinstate the reporter's hard pass. We will also further develop rules and processes to ensure fair and orderly press conferences in the future," Sanders said. "There must be decorum at the White House."

Say what? No it didn't!

No, it damn well didn't.  More's the pity.  So, WTF is she talking about then?

Once again the cries from the fetid progressive swamps to end the Electoral College rise like the stench of death and decay from tepid backwaters...now they add a new fecund odor to the mix - end the Senate.

Yes, dicking with the original intnent of the Founders is no longer sufficient...end it and go unicameral...much easier to steal and corrupt one chamber than two!

How about you cowardly little sniveling progressive snakes admit you want to end the nation as it was Founded and agree to suspend your emotive need to be complete selfish assholes for a long enough period to agree to a peaceful division of the nation?  You kum-bay-yah fools can go one way and we will go back with the Founders!  We are all going to make a choice in the end no matter what else anybody may think or delude themselves into thinking!  So, agree to separation...or continue your bullsh*t and cause us to hunt you all down and slay you!

Your choice now...or no choice later.  Pick one, assholes!

I have it on my android phone, uses VPNs supposedly safe and secure but in today's Big Brother and Dark Web world who is to say?  There is scuttlebutt that TOR is basically a Deep State spinoff and a ruse to track those with something to hide.  I don't know about that...suffice it to say if nefarious types want to hack you they probably will...so like anything security related it comes down to thwarting the less skilled criminal and using your own situational awareness to keep you safe...so I think you'll be fine.

I've been using TOR (The Onion Router) for the past week or so.

    Tor prevents people from learning your location or browsing habits.
    Tor is for web browsers, instant messaging clients, and more.

What is Tor?

Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.

Why Anonymity Matters

Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.

There's LOTS more info at the site. After the first week, it seems to run a tad slower than Firefox, but all of my web pages work.
Maybe someone who's a little geekier can tell me if it's all a ruse.
