Inspection-A Jury of Pinocchios
  by Ken Carman


Large numbers attempting to get on a jury, willing to lie about their agenda: acquit George.
People willing to lie about their desire to convict Mr. Zimmerman trying get on the jury...

Is this we need in a justice system? Is the justice system to become a contest between which side has better Pinocchios?
One might argue it's the next illogical step in an already corrupt system.

I've written many times about the injustice that has been built into our justice system, and I have written
several times about the Zimmerman case. Never did I imagine this case could become a focal point of all
that's wrong with what might more accurately be referred to as an "injustice system" sometimes.
The Zimmerman case, viewed properly connects many dots indicating how corrupt the justice system has become.

Now citizen advocates are doing all they can to make it worse.
The precedent was already there....

Is it legal to lie to get on a jury?
Has anyone ever been prosecuted for lying to get on a jury?

Why does Zimmerman have an all-white jury?
Plus, these SIX jurors are known to be less-than-sane.

One lady juror was worried about "more Trayvon riots."
Does anyone remember the first "Trayvon riot?"  I don't.
You figure the defense has to love her.

Another juror wondered what Trayvn was doing out "at that time of the night."
Hey lady, it was 7:30 PM in the evening. 

You think a Black teenager should be at home and asleep by then?
You figure the defense has to love her, too.

 Subject: About the DOMA ruling

While it is a very good thing, it doesn't mean that DOMA is completely dead, nor that gay couples
can now get married in every state in the country. I'll try to be brief, but it's complicated.

Basically, the court struck down only one section of the law, the part of the law that kept the federal
government from recognizing legal same-sex marriages. Until now, even if a same-sex couple lived in
a state where same-sex marriage was legal, their marriage was not recognized by the federal government.
That caused a lot of problems, as couples missed out on over a thousand different federal benefits and
responsibilities (like Social Security, veterans' benefits, and many others.)

With Wednesday's decision, now the federal government will recognize same-sex marriages performed
in states or countries where such marriages are legal. However, the other part of DOMA, that says that
states do not have to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states, was not struck down.

Thus, it gets very complicated when it comes to same-sex couples who married in a state where it is legal
but live in a state where it isn't. There are open legal questions that will have to be sorted out later, with
further lawsuits, some federal regulations, and possible future legislation. It's too bad that it's not all
completely settled, but Wednesday's decision will help many couples who have lacked federal rights until now.

The main LGBT national legal groups have compiled several fact sheets for those who want to learn more.
It's probably more information than you want to digest, but if you want to publish the link for those interested:

The Bully at the Trayvon Trial

Have you been watching this trial?
If you have a TV on you probably are, because CNN and MSNBC are going with it wall-to-wall.

Granted, I'm prejudiced because I don't like armed, racist vigilante murderers, but Zimmerman's lawyer
is bullying Trayvon's teenage friend and I'm betting the jury isn't liking it - not one f-ing bit.

But then, if Floridians are as racist as Oklahomas, they might enjoy the educated white lawyer
beating up on the girl with the bad English and disagreeing tenses in her conversation.

First, Trayvon's friend makes a terrible witness. She seems to be extremely unedicated and she has
no patience with this bald bastard barking question at her and she doesn't even want to be there.

The bald bastard (the one who told the stupid knock-knock joke) keeps bullying her and I'm so damn
jealous that that's not me on the witness stand because I'd like to spar with the son of a bitch.

I've only been a witness one time at a trial and I loved the hell out of it.

If you've been reading 15 years, you remember back during impeachment, I kept saying how much
I wished I could be a witness taking the stand because the idiot lawyers kept asking questions that were
perfect set-ups for MONSTER smart-ass replies that I would use to punish the bastard doing the barking,
such as, "What was going thru your mind at the time?"

My reply would be, "I was thinking how stupid you'd look in a dress, Baldy."

Hey, when they ask what was going on IN MY MIND, I get to answer any goddamn way I want.

Plus, this BB keeps asking the same questions, over and over and over and over. I would reply,
"Why do you keep asking the same question? Are you stuck?  Can't you think of anything else?"

Plus, the BB is asking dozens of questions that Rachel (Trayvon's friend) couldn't possibly know,
such as "Where was Trayvon when he called?"

I wish she would answer, "How the fuck do I know? It was a phone call, dumbass."

This trial may go on for many months, at the rate the BB is asking and repeating questions.
It's my guess the Zimmerman team nas NOTHING and they're hoping to drag this out for as long
as possible, hoping the jurors will miss their families and vote "Not Guilty" so they can go home.

But please, Lord, once before I die, put me on the witness stand, televised, of course,
and have some piece-of-shit bully lawyer try to get me to say something I don't want to say.

Sure, I'd probably end up in jail after repeated comtempt warnings, but before that happened,
I'm confident I could teach that lawyer to think hard and fast about how he's going to phrase
some question that Mr. Smart Mouth could craft into a funny and snarky reply.

Another exanple:
This happened hours later:

Pushy Bald Bastrad:  "You said Trayvon called Zimmerman "a creepy-ass cracker."
Did he use that term for all white people?"

I wish that poor girl had thought to answer, "No, just for creepy crackers who were stalking him."

Please, Lord, make me a witness in a trial where I'm innocent - can you make that happen?
You need to hurry, Lord.

But Asshole, if it's in the Constitution
why didn't you quote chapter and verse?

"Bafangu, Bartcop!"

Christie Hates Gay Marriage
He attacked the court for getting it right


Chris Christie (R-Hater), who has walked a fine line on gay marriage, came out strongly against
the Supreme Court’s decision to declare a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional.

“It’s just another example of judicial supremacy rather than having a government run by the people
we actually vote for,” Christie said. “I thought it was a bad decision.”

I'll bet Christie had no problem with the court's "judicial supremacy" when they decided
that Blacks had no guaranteed right-to-vote in racist, Southern states.

He called Justice Anthony Kennedy’s opinion “incredibly insulting” to the members of Congress
who voted for DOMA and President Bill Clinton, who signed it.

“He basically said that the only reason to pass that bill was to demean people. That’s a heck of
a thing to say about Bill Clinton and about the Republican congress back in the 90s,” Christie said.

If Kennedy said the haters passed DOMA in the 90's just to be dicks, I agree with him.
If two guys in California get married, what, I have to divorce my wife in Oklahoma because
marriage no longer has any meaning? This is why you haters can't win elections.

I think Christie is like Thurston, middle-of-the-road deep down, but he has to be a dick now
because that's the only kind of person the GOP nominates to run for president.

And isn't it sweet how Christie doesn't like seeing Bill Clinton "insulted?"

ha ha

 Subject: Snowden

Hi, Bart
I think it's incredibly interesting the strange bedfellows this Snowden situation is bringing to light.
Snowden, and the issues he's forcing us to look at, are moving targets. The Fat Lady has not yet begun to sing.

The whole situation is forcing us to think on our feet and take a look at who is standing with us at any given moment.
I actually think this has done more to bridge the gridlock of beliefs in this country than anything in memory. 
It's forcing us to think and argue in a more nuanced way and that can only make us better as citizens.

Keep swinging the hammer. You make me think. 
That's what it's all about

I'm wondering what's on the four computers Snowden delievered to Putin.

I worry about my fellow Democrats who call this guy "a hero."

Tally's take on NSA, Snowden


Send e-mail to Bart

Subject: Snowden

In your last posting you stated as a fact: 
"Snowden gave four NSA computers to Russia." 

How do you know that to be true?
 David G

I don't, I'm sitting here in Jokelahoma but I'm going by what Snowdon said.

He said he was traveling with four NSA computers (maybe that means hard drives?)

and he was either kidnapped to Russia or he chose to fly there of his own free will.

Unless he's a complete liar and fraud, he delivered the stolen computers to Putin.
Or does someone think he's going to land in Russia, be under Russian control
and Putin's NOT going to see what's on those NSA hard drives?

The way I understand this, even the NSA doesn't know what Snowden stole, so there's
no telling what's on those HDs.  Whatever secret NSA info is on them, Putin now has it.

And if the info is valuable, Putin can't let him leave and have him tell Glenn Greenwald
exactly which American national security secrets Putin now possesses.

 Subject: leaks

Dear Bart:
I am afraid that neither one of us has any idea of what else is on Snowden’s computers. 
We don’t know what he took, and we don’t know if he still has everything he took.
So far, the leaked information that we have been told of has all been well known by
the well informed, including myself.  I knew they were doing domestic surveillance and
data mining and I knew they were lying about it.  Hell, Snowden has not even leaked
about the NSA program for flagging and eavesdropping on domestic phone conversations
based on key words and phrases and yet I’ve known about that for over 20 years. 
I think I read about it in The Nation. 

You want to assume that Snowden is guilty of worse that the evidence so far supports. 
You may turn out to be right.  But so far all he has done that we know for sure is shine
a spot light on old news that was universally ignored by the mainstream media.

My guess is that the NSA and others are more worried about evidence that proves beyond
any doubt that specific individuals have been lying, under oath and otherwise, then they are
worried about anything new that Putin might learn.  At the same time, I have a hard time
working up to Perkel’s level of outrage.  I’ve already been fuming about this stuff for going on 35 years.

So far, from what has been reported, Snowden stills seems more like Ellsberg than Libby to me. 
That is, more like a hero than a traitor. 
That could easily change, but no way he turns out a bigger traitor than Cheney.

Warm regards,
 Jim W

Michael Jackson's Ghost at Trial
AEG turning the trial into worse circus


SThe Jackson family suit against AEG Live just keeps getting stranger and stranger. Yesterday, testimony
from the spirit of Michael Jackson entered into the case, when the attorney for AEG called the company's
CEO Randy Philips to the stand to testify that Jackson's ghost admitted he "accidentally killed himself."
During his testimony, Phillips said he talked to his longtime friend Brenda Richie (ex-wife of Lionel Richie),
who claimed that she talked to a medium who had channeled the spirit of Jackson after he died in 2009.
During the paranormal conversation, Jackson's ghost cleared Dr. Conrad Murray of any responsibility for his death.

"Brenda called me to tell me that she was in communications with Michael either through a medium or directly,"
Phillips said. "She said Michael told her that it wasn't Dr. Murray’s fault."

Some in the courtroom laughed during the testimony, reported the Post. Meanwhile, an attorney for the
Jackson family objected, calling the testimony triple hearsay: Phillips was discussing a chat he had with Richie,
who talked to a medium, who channeled Jackson’s ghost, who exonerated Murray

Has the judge gone crazy?

How is Brenda Richie's seance relevant to these proceedings?

Who are these idiots who threaten to stop visiting because they disagree with something you said? 
That sounds like a knuckle-dragging republican mindset to me.  Good riddance.

As for me, I know you are wrong about Snowden.  Big deal.     ha ha

We agree on far more than we disagree. 

And, its in understanding disagreement that people grow - thats where we learn how others think
and about different viewpoints.  If you only surround yourself with sycophants, you'll live life as
an idiot (and probably a republican).

Keep doing what you do.  Intelligent people appreciate it (and so do I!).

Bob, thanks for that, but I'm sure I'm right about Snowden.
I'm certain he's a publicity-seeking whore, playing the reluctant hero.

If only there was a way we could gamble on it - I would give you odds.

Subject: Snowden

Bart, I agree with you totally.  Was on Snowden's side until he went to a foreign country
and started boasting about all the NSA info he stole.  He's playing with the big boys now
and is no longer in the "land of the free".  If he were a true patriot he would have stayed
in the country and defended himself but now we know this was his plan all along. 

Our country has to have some intelligence or we are opening up ourselves to many more 9/11's. 
When you are fighting "terrorism" and not a defined enemy in uniform, our intelligence capabilities
are more important than ever.  I don't like all the domestic spying on us (didn't like it under Bush either)
but until our Congress changes things it is legal. 

Like you, with my IQ being 64, I don't know what the happy medium is.

Snowden could've leaked this info without putting his face on every TV in the world.

 Subject: Obama offers America a false choice

This administration puts forward a false choice between the liberties we cherish and the security
we provide. We can provide our intelligence and law enforcement agencies the tools they need to
track and take out the terrorists without undermining our Constitution and our freedom.

That means no more wiretapping of American citizens. No more national security letters to spy on
citizens who are not suspected o a crime. No more tracking of citizens who do no more that protest
a misguided and corrupt government.  No more ignoring the law when it is inconvenient.
That is not who we are. It is not what is necessary to defeat the terrorists.

The Constitution works, the separation of powers works. We must set an example for the world
that the law is not subject to the whims of stubborn rulers, and that justice is not arbitrary.
