  1. https://www.euronews.com/2024/05/20/butcher-of-tehran-who-was-iranian-president-ebrahim-raisi The Butcher of Tehran. Yes, by all means, lets give him a moment of silence. He silenced thousands. He helped oversee the mass execution of thousands in the 1980s and later presided over a brutal crackdown on anti-government protests at home. My guess is Khameni decided to get rid of him. Too bad the Foreign Minister also died in the incident. mspart
  2. Just another example of the students(?) being aided by agitators in the college demonstrations. In April 2024, just a few short months after moving to the US, Motaz was seen at Columbia University assisting the protest movement against Israel. mspart
  3. I missed canoeing in the Boundary Waters in MN. I lived there for 7 years and had an open invitation just about all 7 years. All they had to say was that the mosquitoes were relentless to make me not want to go. I guess fishing is excellent but that wasn't enough for me. I hate mosquitos in my face more than slugs. I would hate slugs in my face more than mosquitos if slugs could do that, such is my hate for slugs. mspart
  4. I kayaked to Secret Falls on Kauai. The trip was upstream of the Waimea river but with the wind it was easy paddling. The way back was a little tougher. We parked the kayaks and hiked the rest of the way to secret falls. Nice falls and swimming was good. I had another kayak trip on oahu from Kailua to a little island off shore. It didn't look very far away. It was brutal getting out there. Must have been high tide coming in. The paddle back was a lot easier. I was happy for that trip to be over. I've done some canoeing. Lake Ross in the north Cascades is awesome. Water is warm and there are limitless places to go. mspart
  5. They should use paper syringes. That would be more ecologically viable. mspart
  6. That's some pretty good acting!! mspart
  7. All aboard Dead as I have read. Iran will be looking for a new President. He had high level staff with him that will also need to be replaced. I would think this is a major blow to the Iranian political scheme. mspart
  8. I think there is precedent that an Assistant can do both. mspart
  9. Gavin is awesome! mspart
  10. Interesting that the first debate is before the conventions. Biden must be hoping for a really good showing. Gotta get that cocktail just right. But maybe not like the SOTU speech or the after Hur speech. He was a bit angry. Maybe people like angry Joe. mspart
  11. I'm guessing he wants out of politics. I think he is tired of the crap that you have to deal with. mspart
  12. Yes he did. He beat Gable at the NCAA tourney and was the only one to score on him in 1972 olympic trials or olympic competetion. Owings was really good. mspart
  13. https://www.declassified.live/p/judge-cannon-puts-jack-smith-on-trial?utm_source=profile&utm_medium=reader2 A few excerpts. I highly recommend reading this. In officially vacating the existing May 20 trial date—an impossibility considering the defendant will be in a Manhattan courtroom for the foreseeable future—Cannon declined to set another date, calling it “imprudent” at this stage of the process. She noted a “myriad” of unresolved matters in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s 42-count indictment against the former president and his two co-defendants, Mar-a-Lago employees Waltine Nauta and Carlos De Olivera, for willfully retaining national defense information and attempting to impede the government’s investigation. Cannon, however, did schedule a number of proceedings that could be considered a way to put the Department of Justice on trial. In a stunning turn of events, Cannon, appointed by Donald Trump in 2020, is poised to make Smith a defendant of sorts. Over the next several weeks, prosecutors will be forced to publicly counter defense motions that accuse the DOJ of selective and vindictive prosecution; insist the appointment of Smith is illegal; and claim that several parties, including Joe Biden’s White House, colluded behind the scenes as early as May 2021 to concoct the unprecedented case. ...In other words, the government officials prosecuting Trump with mishandling top-secret files--mishandled top-secret files. Finally someone, the judge in this case, is taking seriously the weaponization of the DOJ in this effort. I have never heard this before and like I said above, this is very interesting reading and I highly recommend people read up on this. The defense has uncovered things that the judge wants clarified by DOJ. DOJ will have a very hard time justifying what it has done in targeting Trump in this case. They may be successful but it is an uphill battle. No wonder Jack Smith, the special prosecutor, wanted to rush this to court. In my opinion, he knows he has a very weak case based on the defense findings and didn't want that to come out. It looks like at the very least, the judge is interested in getting all of this out in the open, even if the news media and D's don't want it to and don't want to acknowledge this is happening. https://reason.com/volokh/2024/05/11/judge-aileen-cannon-is-a-heroine/ https://www.newyorker.com/news/daily-comment/whats-holding-up-trumps-florida-case These are two articles that seems to say similar things as the above. So not wholly unsubstantiated. mspart
  14. I had a similar coach that I stayed in touch with almost until he died. I went to visit him and his wife told me he had passed away a few months earlier. He was a great friend and mentor. mspart
  15. The folks would be killed in Saudi, Iran, Afghanistand, and most certainly in Palestine for their views on sexuality, gender fluidity, and marxist views. They don't realize it. These are college educated (doesn't mean much anymore does it?) adults that have no idea about the world around them. They are oblivious to the reality that they live and the fact it would not be tolerated in Muslim countries. Fools and idiots indeed. mspart
  16. That's actually a good idea. Yes, there could be brain damage in MMA but I think not as much as in boxing itself. Especially with a wrestler who will want to be on the ground rather than punching. mspart
  17. To me, it makes some sense to go to Okie with Taylor. Let Taylor sharpen Dake's steel. mspart
  18. Too bad he didn't make that decision just a little earlier. Perhaps he doesn't want to do the extreme training needed to succeed at the highest level in wrestling. But to make NFL, he will need to do that. And I'm guessing he did at WWE as well. But he knows what it is like in wrestling. mspart
  19. Interesting that they do not take the ballots that were determined to be illegal and throw them out and get a revised count for the election. Seems ridiculous to have another election where the same thing can happen all over again. mspart
  20. I think that is spelled So Crates for us plebes. mspart
  21. I feel like that is not overly optimistic. Doable. If MFS does as thought, that is 4 for WFS and GR put together. Very possible. mspart
  22. Those Hamas people break all the rules of war that the pro hamas and pro Palestinian naysayers demand Israel follow. What a crock. Israel is a country so must abide. Hamas is not a country, Gaza is not a country, and those Palestinians have no country, so they don't need to abide. Hamas takes no responsibility for the Gazans. They use them as shields, kill them when they try to get the food aid being sent, and demand the UN take care of them. Hamas needs to go away and Israel is intent on seeing that happen. mspart
  23. Interesting stuff. It sounds like the judge delayed the classified document trial and is essentially putting DOJ on defense as they go through all of the Trump motions. I don't know if it is acceptable to cut and paste that article but it is pretty astounding. Everyone should read it. Here is the article: https://www.declassified.live/p/judge-cannon-puts-jack-smith-on-trial?utm_source=profile&utm_medium=reader2 mspart
