Michael Cohen: Is this the kind of jerk-off 
you would want to be US Attorney General?

Jul28.2015 

 
Ole' shit-for-brains

The news is now pretty much viral: Donald Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, is a total dick. Total. And he probably knows less about law than I do, which ain’t much, I’ll admit.  But at least I have never stated in an interview with The Daily Beast that "by the very definition, you can’t rape your spouse," implying that there is no law against spousal rape.  Wrong, dude.  Spousal rape is illegal in all 50 states – even South Carolina and Texas. It’s illegal in many other places with horrendous records on civil rights -- places like Paupa New Guinea, Turkey, Namibia, and Israel. Maybe Cohen was referring to Botswana or Tajikistan when he implied that spousal rape is legal, or OK, or whatever the hell he was implying.

Photo-tour of the North end of Vancouver Island

Nanaimo - Port Hardy - Holberg - 
Ucleulet - Tofino - Nanaimo

 

This year all of BC has been hot, dry, and on fire, including Vancouver Island.  But in mid-July a line of storms blew in off the Pacific and helped snuff the early summer forest fires, thereby providing a window of opportunity to see the Island before the late summer fires start.  I've seen the lower end, but not the remote upper end, the tip of which is N of the 50th parallel -- it is still quite light at 10 pm. My cottage is just about where the "N" in "CANADA" is on the map.  I caught the 5:30am ferry from Tsawwassen to Nanaimo, and was in Port Hardy by 1 pm. (BC is not really purple, btw.  It's sort of burnt umber.)

The Sandra Bland/Brian Encinia encounter: 
Jim Crow redux gone viral

Jul12.2015

 

Would you mind putting out your cigarette?
-- Brian Encinia

Before this Sandra Bland tragedy and debacle in Waller County, Texas gets totally out of control, I thought it might be helpful – at least in organizing my own opinions – to put down a few thoughts. I have carefully examined both versions of the arrest vid that were released by the Texas Dept. of Public Safety, which appears to have been named after Robespierre’s 1793 Committee of Public Safety to oversee the French Reign of Terror. Basically, I see the entire "policing effort" of Texas as a reign of terror, particularly for blacks – not unlike many other states.

Lisa Gorcyca: Poster-girl for what’s wrong with 
Americans’ system of choosing who judges them

Humiliating irony or poetic justice? 
Jul02.2015

When I think back over a lifetime of watching politicians humiliate themselves and being humiliated by others, I can think of only one situation where a politician was humiliated by his/her spouse, and you know the situation I'm talkin' about.  In virtually every case of public humiliation that I can recall -- at least the sexual ones -- the politician humiliated his spouse; the reverse seems not to happen, although I'm sure there's plenty of spouses goofin' around, if you catch my drift.  Of course, when both spouses are politicians, then it's a whole new set of rules, and have no doubts, Hil was a politician while she was FLOTUS.
