    Granted, they were used for racists gain in the past. But the low information voter is becoming the bane of our system. On both sides. You think DiFi could get reelected if people knew what they were voting for? How about Gohmert? They get elected because too many people vote the straight ticket. Or because [...]

    she refused to produce an ID

    Which gives them all they need to hold her until she is identified. Not that she didn’t HAVE one, she just decided that her interpretation of the law said she didn’t have to and she challenged a cop at the scene. The only weapon that works on a cop is [...]

    Doesn’t he listen to his friend Gov Scott in Florida? Testing actually cost them a bundle and that was BEFORE legal expenses. Follow the money and you might find one of Walker’s friends in the testing business. I’m so tired ofg voter id laws popping up just in time to keep people from voting. If [...]

    A cop can stop and ask for ID on suspicion alone. Sad, but true. He doesn’t need anybodies opinion but his own.

    The officer was within the law to ask for ID. She refused. At that point, she could be arrested and held until identified.

    If she had provided ID, she could have walked away.

    Boxturtle (The question of WHY he asked for id in this case only the officer can answer)

    Prediction: Nothing will come of this beyond an apology. If that. Cop was within his power to ask for ID at that point and nobody will ever be able to prove what he was thinking.

    Mostly, the Fuku news over the last week was officials admitting things we already knew and admitting they knew these things way earlier then they admitted and admitting they lied to us way longer.

    That’s a powerful, slow moving storm and Cabo’s communication net is concentrated in the area hardest hit. It may be awhile before we get much info.

    Oh, I’ll live. My ulcer is acting up again, so I won’t enjoy living much for awhile. The good news is that the stuff I took for it many moons ago is now cheaper and OTC.

    Well, I think he was murdered. Yakuza don’t like people threatening their revenue stream. Much scary information is now coming out and more or less confirmed by official statements or nearly official statements. It’s not going to be long before the citizens of Tokyo start muttering “murderer” to passing politicians. And I wonder how long it [...]

    Some more so than others. Once they got to my father, they turned from reading books to collectors items.

    My parents and grandparents and great grandparents were all bookworms, I’ve got some stuff from them that’s just amazing. 1st edition Wizard of Oz. First edition Hunting of the Snark.

    SWAT hitting the wrong house is a popular subject anymore. An incident around here had SWAT hitting the wrong house and creating all kinds of chaos while the residents of the right house watched from across the street in lawn chairs. The amusing part was when the right house realized THEY were the target, they [...]

    I get very little spam. I think I’m on the spammers DO NOT SPAM list because I hunt down and kill every spam I get. Or try to kill. I have dumped a couple of IP blocks into my killfile since they don’t respond to my gripes and the websites stay up. Boxturtle (I’m sure [...]

    Some of the cleverest people out there are employed by spammers to evade automatic blocks. I’ve seen some genuinely clever methods, like encoding the spam in an image or using hex codes that a browser will interpret but the mailer daemon won’t. A few years back, there was a challenge from a Hong Kong spammer [...]

    I suspect that NTT got deluged with gripes, not just me. It looks to me as though blacklotus finds a webhost, then spams for all their worth until the website is killed and counts on the customers who get in before the kill.

    Yup. But the key thing was spammers was to be able to deliver to AOL, Earthlink, and WebTV. The people dumb enough to be hooked by their scams were (and still are) concentrated there. Losing one university didn’t bother them at all. When AOL, ATT, and MCI decided collectively to block Cyberpromo, that was when [...]
