    And I thought “Red Faction” was a video game from which someone made a crappy movie. Shows what I know.

    Last time I checked, jurors DO have the right to judge the law involved in the case as well as the specific facts. If they think the law in question is unjust, they do have the right to ignore it. This common-law right goes back to pre-Founding days. For example: William Penn and John Peter Zenger.

    You mean “Mikhail Timofeyevich” instead of “Evgeny,” didn’t you?

    More likely collude.

    Dannie, you can have her, just keep her to yourself, OK?

    But remember you’ll have to get in line behind George Soros and his billions, channelled to her through his SuperPACs.

    This is the same agency that declared a shoestring to be a machinegun.

    And Obama is the first Nobel Peace Prize winner to order an airstrike against another Nobel Peace Prize winner (a hospital run by Médecins Sans Frontières AKA Doctors Without Borders).

    Tyler, where do you get this spiel from? Who says that jurors don’t decide the law?

  10. Posted to Facebook

    Juries have ignored the law on numerous occasions, yet it didn’t lead to widespread death and devastation. For example, the Fugitive Slave Act, Prohibition, the current drug laws — all were nullified by various juries at times, and civilization didn’t fall.

    So mob rule at the ballot box is better? That’s what gave us Bush and Obama, neither of whom has displayed much respect for individual rights.

Notes from Life, Etc.

  1. Just reinstalled youtube-dl (or installed in LM 17.2 as opposed to LM 17.1). They appear to have fixed the bug(s) that it had when I had it installed under 17.1 — much better. Especially that ClipGrab seems to have disappeared entirely from the available software packages.
  2. I set up an account with Talent ABQ and the DWS Work Keys system. I’m paying for this stuff at the 1040 and PIT-1, so I might as well get some benefit out of it.
