    - New research found it was iron, not climate change, that led to the decline of civilizations during the Bronze Age.

    You can’t really trust this sort of ‘research’. Way too much guess work. I personally believe that climate change was the cause and that the current climate change crisis will most likely destroy our civilization as well.

    It’s like the human race just never learns.

    Why are witnesses protected from grand jury testimony but not trial testimony? What’s the difference that causes grand jury testimonies to be secret?

    Reminds me of a landlady I used to have (only, in my case, with less repercussions). I’d let her know there was a problem. Step 1. She’d say, on the phone, there couldn’t be. Step 2. She’d acknowledge there might be a problem, but she wasn’t responsible. Step 3. She’d come over to look at [...]

  • I don’t see any articles on FDL about the extremely bad human rights record in Islamic countries. What I do see is a relentless effort to puke on Israel and frame Palestinians as victims. If any of the attempts to literally wipe Israel off the map had succeeded, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.

    You don’t need a new car to enjoy the new car smell.

    An old car plus a spray bottle of benzene and little squirt will do. Toxic carcinogen, though

    He is a menace to society.

    Which is why he got that job. His license is secure, too many powerful entities want him to keep it.

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s survival was obviously unintended

    Ditto here. I see no other reasonable explanation for the events in Watertown.

    If by some miracle DT is acquitted, I hope the defense has security protection in place for him right up until the moment he gets on a plane for Russia.

    In my case, the injury was clearly on the job. So they challenge by claiming pre-existing conditions.

    Thanks pbsz for a great post. Yes, there’s a certain symmetry to the proceedings, isn’t there? You and Jane have both cut right through the BS about the fish, etc. It does seem that sentencing for some of these young men is being delayed for a reason, and that our justice system and the “conviction [...]

    Exactly. Part of the reason to keep this stuff secret is to keep people safe. Say, for example, that a no-bill transcript came out into the public and a witness got hurt because of it…

    One of the DR’s we saw for Workmans comp has not practiced in over 30 years. He makes $750K/year doing paperwork medical exams for Workmans Comp. We know this because he was forced to state it on the record once when hauled into court over one of his opinions. Boxturtle (I gotta get rid of [...]

    One hundred percent agree that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s survival was obviously unintended. I believe that the only reason he did was because of the media’s close proximity, (despite having been pushed back by le),and the possibility of a civilian witness to events at the boat. Likely the ptb still have much reason to want DT silenced, [...]

    It is egregious that McCullough would make a bogus promise like that.

    I think he means it. He’s fully aware that if the GJ returns no bill, HE will be held responsible. He wants to deflect some of that blame onto the GJ. I am unaware of GJ transcripts other than as you describe ever having [...]

    Yes, these are undeniable facts. Which is why we are here on this thread, because of undeniable facts. Another unhappy truth, of course, is that a Boston jury would be happy to convict any suspect who presented to them in this case. As long as the victims get “justice,” who cares if the right person [...]

    Good morning everyone.
    Thank you for the post BoxTurtle.

    Something strange is happening with my computer. I do not have to sign in on a daily basis anymore. I go to the Leave a Reply and start writing.

    NSA are you listening to my conversations again.
