SAR #16197

If your beliefs do not inform your deeds, words do no good.
What Big Teeth You Have... FBI Director Comey, fresh from not being able to find evidence of Hillary's crimes, wants Congress to give his guys unfettered warrantless access to all of every American's Internet activity – searches, sites visited, emails. Because he wants to get the goods on you, just as the Bureau has on all those guys on The Hill. Remember J. Edgar? Yeah, he died. But his filing system didn't.
Readme: Why doesn't Neal Stephenson get at least an honorable mention for Pokémon GO's “augmented reality”? And why isn't it called Niantic?
Kentucky Windage: Judge Hollis Alexander of KY's Trigg County not only refuses to marry God damned gays, he also refuses to marry those who don't want to invite God into their marriages. 'Cause he follows a higher law than the Constitution.
Mum's The Word: FBI agents, who by the very nature of their employment are constrained from leaking information about investigations, were not trusted to keep their mouths shut about Hillary's Big Adventure and were forced to sign separate non-disclosure agreements specifically covering Ms Clinton's crimes.

As always, thank you for your time and effort.

However, I think that your masthead quote today and your "Kentucky Windage" link offer a little conflict. I see just a a hair of dissonance with these two statements.

Thanks for coming back, as long as you stay around, I will be a grateful visitor.

I beg to differ, Today's headline is a variant of 'What you are screams at me so loudly I can't hear what you're saying!'

Which is to say we live in a world filled with people saying one thing yet doing quite another!

How many Drone strikes will it take to achieve World Peace? How many people have to be tased to death before Justice is fulfilled? How many people need to be condemned to for profit prisons before the taxpayer profits? How many people need to be stopped and frisked before terrorists give up?

And that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

Re "Kentucky Windage": If I were to make the same choice to violate the law I would probably be invited to live in a jail cell; which is where he should be if he insists on retaining his position. There was a time in our enlightened western world when failure to attend church on Sunday was a crime . . . something tells me the judge would be fine enforcing that sort of anachronism.
