No. A 17-year-old (or anybody else) cannot cart an AR-15 across state lines, “deploy” himself to a hotbed of civil unrest, falsely cast himself as a “medic” or “community supporter,” effectively deputize himself in the name of vigilante justice, provoke fear and animus, execute two people and severely wound another and then claim “self-defense.”
That’s like the old joke about the guy who kills his mother and father and then throws himself on the mercy of the court because he’s an “orphan.”
And I’m wondering. Does the state of Wisconsin require judges to have any legal training?
Rittenhouse’s attorney, in closing argument, said the people his client killed were not “peaceful protesters” or “good people.”
I don’t know whether they were or not. It’s irrelevant in this case. What is the attorney saying? That it was then fully justifiable for this juvenile to appoint himself judge, jury and, in this case, literally executioner? Because that seems to be exactly what the attorney is saying. How is that not what the attorney is saying?
From there, we look to the South, where I have Georgia on My Mind. So, we have too many “black preachers”? Oh, but you’re not trying to make this trial about race, right? You would NEVER do that.
Steve Bannon, in the name of “America” and “law and order” simply ignores a lawful Congressional subpoena. This from the guy who on January 5 told the world that, “All hell is going to break loose tomorrow. This is not going to go down the way you think it is.” Wow. That proved to be an amazingly accurate prediction. I mean, that’s Nostradamus stuff, unless, you know, you were a big part of planning and organizing “all hell breaking loose” and just waiting to light the inferno.
Liz Cheney is one of the most legitimately Conservative lawmakers in Congress. She is not a RINO. The crazies who are calling her a RINO are the RINOs. And now the Wyoming GOP Politburo declares that she will no longer be considered a Republican, because she has declared fealty to the Constitution rather than to a mindless, amoral demagogue? She has displayed the temerity to pursue the truth and tell the truth. So she has to go?
And, oh, Russia, goddammit, kindly dispose of your space junk properly. No wonder we can’t have nice things.
Radically Rational. We’re bringing facts back into fashion. And we’re making simple sanity sexy again.
