E. Jean Carroll filed court papers Monday seeking "very substantial" monetary damages from Donald Trump for making scathing remarks about her at a CNN town hall a day after the former president lost a $5 million lawsuit to the writer. Carroll now is seeking no less than $10 million from Trump in damages in her original lawsuit in light of what he said May 10 on CNN.
"If Tennessee wishes to exercise its police power in restricting speech it considers obscene, it must do so within the constraints and framework of the United States Constitution," Parker added. "The Court finds that, as it stands, the record here suggests that when the legislature passed this Statute, it missed the mark." read more

EV is cool. Hybrids are not. That's it.

You know what's really cool? My hybrid Prius gets ~75 mpg around town.
Sometimes more. Plus it's paid off.
I love my Prius.

And they could never use those "words" to admit any doubt as to the Bible's veracity or risk being burned at the stake.
Italian scientist Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake for teaching, among other heretical ideas, Copernicus' heliocentric view of the Universe. But what really got him into trouble was his belief in "many worlds". That was heresy.
And the penalty for heresy was being burned at the stake.
So you can probably imagine why no one would ever admit being an atheist in writing if the penalty for heresy was death.
How do I know he is a great fellow? Because America hates him. Must have done something right.

Does one really hate flies or are they just annoyed by them?
Most Americans probably don't even know who Erdagon is and could probably care less.
I rooted for the other fly. But I don't "hate" the one that won.
"Trumps election was stolen from him and everyone knows it."
What a maroon. 60 Court cases have proved that lie to be wrong. Yet you still proudly believe it. But you have been groomed to believe them big lies so no big surprises there.
You would make a real good Trumper if they would just allow your sorry arse into this country.
Too bad Trumpers hate poor brown people too much for that. They could use more maroons like you.
And you enjoy your debt ceiling getting cracks, ya hear?
Hope for the best Dinner Boy.

If our ceiling gets "cracks" then you will get wet if it rains a recession on us, too.
Our economy affects yours. Much more than yours affects ours.
And I always hope for the best. But prepare for the worst.

that's definition 1A of "compromise"
WTF is wrong with you?
There is no compromise when it comes to the debt ceiling. You are either going to stand behind your debts or you are not.
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned ...
There is no "compromise" to that.
"Climatea and weather goes in cycles and is NOT controlled or affected by man."
Homeschooled? How embarrassing for you.
Then what about chemtrails? Can we safely put that conspiracy theory to rest now?
And it's been proven that man does indeed affect the weather and his environment. By affecting his environment he affects the weather. By affecting the weather he affects the climate.
But man obviously does not control the weather. Yet.
Hence, no chemtrails. Contrails yes. Chemtrails no.
"There are reasons why an Ebola pandemic is highly unlikely."
Don't fixate on Ebola. I only used it as an example because everyone is familiar with it.
There are many viruses waiting in the wings for a minor mutation to set them loose on the world.
"Based on the increasing rate at which novel pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2 have broken loose in human populations in the past 50 years, the study estimates that the probability of novel disease outbreaks will likely grow three-fold in the next few decades.
Using this increased risk factor, the researchers estimate that a pandemic similar in scale to COVID-19 is likely within a span of 59 years, a result they write is "much lower than intuitively expected." Although not included in the PNAS paper, they also calculated the probability of a pandemic capable of eliminating all human life, finding it statistically likely within the next 12,000 years."
Just remember that a 100 year flood doesn't need a hundred years to become a reality. A 50 pandemic cycle doesn't need 50 years to happen. It could happen again this year ... or tomorrow.
"When a 100-year flood occurs today, one may erroneously presume that one can afford to wait another 100 years before experiencing another such event," Katul says. "This impression is false. One can get another 100-year flood the next year."
I told you. There is no deal until the debt ceiling is actually raised.
And I will believe it when I see it. And even then I will need verification. (Like everyone getting their SS check).
You see McCarthy is screwed.
If he does not raise the debt ceiling America tanks and he is to blame.
If he does raise the debt ceiling then the terrorist caucus will fire him.
I am ready. Good luck us!

There was never a Covid pandemic. Until there was one.

Unlike Trumpy's "mentors" who were all fired, indicted, currently in prison, or fighting to stay out of prison.
when the next one hits our shores we are better prepared for the onslaught.

Don't think we would do very well when the next one hits. We did not do so well with Covid. Just imagine how bad we would react to an Ebola type pandemic. We will just blame the Jews and the Gays and call it a hoax and fight amongst ourselves and rearrange the deck chairs until we sank under the weight of our own ignorance.
In other words I don't have much hope for us if we get hit by an even worse pandemic.
Covid is still making the rounds.
An older friend just got it. Kicked her butt for a few days. But she is fine now. She was vaccinated and she thinks that helped. But she hated the paxlovid. Made everything taste like metal and the taste wouldn't go away.
Weird thing is her voice changed and got really deep after she recovered.
"I'm staying home,nobody running adequately Represents me."
No worries. I will vote a couple extra times to make up the difference.
Maybe I will stuff a few ballot boxes and get a few dead people to vote just to be sure.

Ok. Not all. But a whole lot of them.
"Eleven allies of and advisers to former president Donald Trump have been convicted or pleaded guilty in recent years to various offenses, with their total sentences nearing 30 years of imprisonment."
Where are all the arrests and convictions of Obama and Biden allies and advisers and supporters??
