Perhaps this will teach politicians not to pretend to oppose something that they are actually in favor of just because it was proposed by a member of the other party. First they asked the President to go to Congress before bombing because they thought he wouldn’t do that, even though they actually tended to agree [...]

Even though Syria is lying when they said they didn’t do it, that lie is important. Because it implies that they admit that the use of chemical weapons is wrong. If they said otherwise it would be terrible if Congress still voted for the military not to punish them. But with that admission by them, [...]
A nasty head of state is a lot more worried about himself thanr his people. Wouldn’t it be more effective to offer a twenty million dollar reward to anyone who kills a tyrant if he does obviously terrible things than to spend ten times that to bomb innocents? Even if he is well protected that’s [...]
Although I agree with the verdict I think that George Zimmerman was probably guilty of a behavior that I don’t think is illegal but should be. Namely pushing a person into possibly attacking you when only you know that you have a lethal weapon (or even possibly professionally trained fists) that can kill under the [...]
Hopefully in six weeks I will be able to claim that they worked well. With so many good new players studying standard strategy and counterstrategy, I’m thinking that the best way to thwart them is to make some plays that, while theoretically a little suboptimum, are so different from what they are used to that [...]
Now we all know that one of the main reasons the authorities quickly identified them is that they reacted abnormally to the blast. I guess they wanted to show how smart they are. Even if it meant that future terrorists will now certainly not make that same mistake.
Why do people make a big deal about any of it? It’s totally insignificant to any president or ex president. Money will never be an issue in any way shape or form.
Now he can conceivably be found Not Guilty by reason of insanity and after years in a mental hospital, get out and possibly kill again. And this risk was taken to achieve what.? To try for a punishment that is illegal in most countries and many states? The only good justification for the death penalty [...]
I think it is sort of unfortunate that the capture of Christopher Dorner can be traced back to a phone call from one of the two people he tied up. It is true that if she had not made that phone call many more might have died. Then again one fewer might have. In any [...]
They have some things in common. The public is upset that they cheat to help them succeed. And that they portray themselves as somebody they are not. But because the public also gets some upsides from them (entertainment, cheap labor) they are often willing to be lenient. Except that these cheaters are not actually as [...]
