Either that or they go into politics and get elected to some high office or the other.

And then they get elected.
Now who is stupid?

The voters who put them in office.

So if the voters are stupid, does that make them criminals?

(and this is when the thread went off to the arena.....)

In that last election cycle? You betcha'. Every single person who voted for either of the two electable candidates absolutely was a criminal. Me included, and I am ashamed of the choice I made. And we will pay the price for that.... that.... whatever that was.

My only excuse, and it certainly rings hollow, is that the other mistake would have been worse.

I just hated the fact that I couldn't stand either one of them  I knew in my gut that we were going to a dark place as a country with this election.

As a side note: These threads don't need guidance systems.  Let them flow I say!

By definition what I did was criminal so I paid the damn ticket.  $450 is no small sum

Wow!  That is an expensive one!

Whew- I am safe.  I just voted AGAINST someone and not really FOR anyone!  Of course, it seems like I have to do that a lot.  Since we have no form of instant runoff voting, my vote doesn't matter at all, anyway (especially in state, local, and Federal Congressional elections).

Pinch your nose and press the touchscreen and move on.

Yeah, I believe I am in the highest ratio state in the union, and if not it is very close. So my vote (on the national level) is either a 'me too' or 'did anyone else hear a noise'. The Electoral college just dismisses me because I am, so far in this lifetime, on the narrow minority side of those voting for that office. And again, I am in a state that will invariably elect a particular party's candidates to national office.

I am just starting to participate on state level politics (showing up for legislation consideration, throwing in my 'vote' on matters before the state legislature and similar) and am finding it surprisingly effective. The reason is simple: the huge majority of the population do not participate so a literal handful of people can either directly make a difference or rile up enough people that will support a specific side to have an impact. And on some level, just being another warm body waving the proverbial flag in favor of or against something. And I have to say, it is really pretty easy to rile up quite a few people if one simply puts the bait in the correct pond. It ain't right and it ain't fair but it is the system we have.

Texas man tries to plant bomb on Confederate statue, officials say


A Texas man was arrested Monday after he allegedly tried to destroy a Confederate statue in a park during the weekend by planting explosives, federal officials said.

Andrew Schneck, 25, was charged with attempting to maliciously damage or destroy property receiving federal financial assistance. A Houston park ranger spotted Schneck Saturday night in Hermann Park in Houston kneeling near the statue of Richard Dowling, a lieutenant in the Confederate army.

The ranger confronted Schneck, who had two boxes that contained duct tape and wires and a bottle of liquid containing a "highly explosive compound," authorities said.

"ln its undiluted form, [nitroglycerin] is one of the world's most powerful explosives," federal authorities said.

Schneck allegedly tried to drink the liquid before ultimately spitting it out, according to The Houston Chronicle.

Schneck previously received five years of probation after pleading guilty in 2014 to improperly storing explosive materials.



That's good thinking on Mr. Schneck's part. Get rid of the evidence by drinking it.    ::)

And on that topic, two localities here in VA are trying to ban legally carried firearms at "demonstrations."  Of course that is :

1) Unconstitutional Federally (but nobody cares)
2) Unconstitutional based on the the Virginia Constitution (but nobody seems to either know and/or care)
3) Against State Law, which clearly says localities can't pass ANY gun control laws of any type (a "preemption")

And I suppose it doesn't compute with these people that the one person MURDERED at the demonstration was done so WITH A CAR (sound familiar?)

The VCDL is going to both localities to "inform" both city councils that what they are trying to do is illegal and ALSO doesn't even make sense.

The drama continues....

A Killer Got Caught Because She Posted a Selfie That Showed an Incriminating Clue

Police in Canada say a Facebook selfie led to the conviction of a 21-year-old-woman who killed her friend in 2015 — by showing her wearing the weapon used in the crime.

Cheyenne Rose Antoine was identified as a suspect on the basis of a selfie in which she posed beside 18-year-old victim Brittany Gargol, Canada’s CBC News reports. Gargol’s strangled body was discovered near a landfill on the outskirts of Saskatoon two years ago.

In the photo — reportedly taken hours before Gargol’s death — Antoine can be seen wearing a belt that was found near Gargol’s body.

Antoine pled guilty to Gargol’s murder Monday, and received a seven-year sentence for manslaughter. According to prosecutors, she had also used Facebook posts to attempt to cover her tracks.

In court, Antoine said Gargol had been her best friend; on the day of the killing the pair gone out drinking and got into an argument. CBC reports that Antoine did not dispute killing Gargol, but said she could not remember strangling her.

Antoine said she would “never forgive” herself for Gargol’s death in a statement delivered through her lawyer. “Nothing I say or do will ever bring her back. I am very, very sorry,” she said.



Manslaughter for killing her best friend? I wonder how she treated the people she didn't like much?

Indiana man walks 351 miles to Wisconsin to have sex with teen, finds undercover cop instead

(NBC) — An Indiana man walked 351 miles to Wisconsin to have sex with a 14-year-old girl — who turned out to be an undercover cop, authorities said.

Authorities arrested Tommy Lee Jenkins, 32, on Thursday. Jenkins faces charges of using a computer to persuade, induce or entice a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity.

Jenkins began contacting what he believed was a 14-year-old girl named “Kylee” on Oct. 1 after responding to a friend request on Facebook from an account the police had made, according to the office of United States Attorney Matthew D. Krueger of the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

After asking for sexually explicit photos of “Kylee” and failing to convince her to visit him in Indiana, Jenkins began walking from Whitestown, about 30 miles northwest of Indianapolis, to Neenah, Wisconsin, occasionally biking or catching a bus on the way, officials said.

Jenkins sent a sexually explicit photo to “Kylee,” exchanged lewd messages, and updated her on his journey to Wisconsin. Jenkins texted “Kylee” that he wanted to “have 500 kids before we are with GOD,” according to the criminal complaint.

But “Kylee” was actually a Sheriff’s Deputy who was there to arrest Jenkins when he arrived.

Jenkins faces a minimum sentence of 10 years in jail, and up to a lifetime of imprisonment, the U.S. Attorney said. It is not yet clear if he has appeared before a judge. He previously was accused of sexually assaulting young children, according to the Oshkosh Northwestern, and was sentenced to four years or probation for four counts of child abuse in 2012.
