So Goatman has earned himself yet another time out, probably for trolling. I kilfiled him sometime ago and only see bits and pieces of his posts when they get quoted, or earn a flag, but this strikes me as the 3rd or 4th time this year,he has been sent to the corner.

As older posters know Goat and I have gone at it many a time and managed to earn both of us at least one time out. He's a smart guy but a serious sick compulsive troll. He seems to be a blogland kamekazi. With personal issues regarding reality an honesty. His "family" seems to pop out of the strangest places, from Cheney's private secretary to scientific experts on various topics or just show up after being abandoned 30 years earlier.
Enough of that. RCADE can you comfortably say Goatman's brief reprieve and visits here do him any mental good? Or are they exacerbating whatever issues he is dealing with?

The Iranian embassy in London will be reopened at the same time, as part of a rapid warming of relations between Iran and the west following the agreement reached on 14 July on the future of the Iranian nuclear program. Hammond's Tehran trip, the first by a British foreign secretary in nearly 12 years, comes soon after visits from the French and Italian foreign ministers, Germany's vice-chancellor, and the EU's foreign policy chief. read more

A Massachusetts woman was unfortunate enough to witness her tax dollars at work firsthand when a SWAT team kicked down her door to her Worcester apartment at 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday. Marianne Diaz says that police burst into her apartment and held her –naked -- at gunpoint as her terrified daughters huddled close to her.

"Stop (expletive) crying and take care of your (expletive) kids," one officer told Diaz as police raided her apartment, forcing the nude 23-year-old mother to kneel as cops with shields and "big guns" tore through her residence. Diaz lives in the apartment with her fiancé, Bryant Alequin, and their friend Joshua Matos as well as her two children -- the 7-year-old, who is disabled, and her 18-month-old baby.

But where is Jackson?

According to courthouse records, he was arrested -- with his actual address known to police -- on a theft warrant two weeks ago. read more


Kevin Lyndel "K.C." Massey -- a member of a militia group that patrolled the U.S.-Mexico border last year with firearms in search of undocumented immigrants... after being charged with four counts of felon in possession of a firearm in October, The McAllen Monitor reported.
