Roger Ailes, who transformed cable news and then American politics by building Fox News into a ratings powerhouse, died Thursday. He was 77. ... Ailes was arguably the most powerful man in American media when he suddenly lost his job last summer. Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox anchor, sued him for sexual harassment, and other women came forward to support her claims. Carlson settled with 21st Century Fox, the network's parent company, for $20 million. read more

In a brief defending its ban on citizens from six Muslim-majority countries, President Donald Trump's Justice Department approvingly cited a segregation-era Supreme Court decision that allowed Jackson, Mississippi, to close public pools rather than integrate them. In the early 1960s, courts ordered Jackson to desegregate its public parks, which included five swimming pools. Instead, the city decided to close the pools. Black residents of Jackson sued. But in 1971, the Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, decided that closing the pools rather than integrating them was just fine. ... The ruling in Palmer v. Thompson didn't explicitly uphold segregation. But it did call for courts to avoid investigating the constitutionality of officials' motivations. read more

"Again what is wrong with not lying, stealing or cheating..." - #26 | Posted by 45_Long_Colt at 2017-06-28 09:21 PM

Why is it you a$$holes are so stupid?

1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
No laws about that.
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
No laws about that.
3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
No laws about that.
4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Only so-called blue laws, but that only stops buying alcohol on Sundays, not actually drinking it.
5. Honour thy father and thy mother.
No laws about that.
6. Thou shalt not kill.
Laws about that. But, then again, almost all civilizations, whether adhering to the Old Testament or not, have such laws. So nothing unique about the 10 Commandments here.
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
There are, no doubt, some laws still on the books (plus the UCMJ), but we'll go with this one as "codified" by the 10 Commandments.
8. Thou shalt not steal.
Laws about that. But, as in #6, not unique to the 10 Commandments.
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
Unless someone is under oath, no laws about that.
10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's.
Not only are there no laws, but our entire capitalistic system is dependent upon coveting what thy neighbor has. "Keeping up with the Jones" sound familiar?

Get back to us when you have something - anything - better.
