Two Libyan Fighter Pilots Defect Rather Than Bomb Protesters

Wow, I don't know where all this ends up in 'realpolitik' terms for the U.S., but it looks like the thugs are getting their comeupance in the Middle East/ North Africa. The fact that we've supported them as they crushed any legitimate opposition may come back to bite us, but it's nice to 'democracy' rearing its ugly head in the region.

Feds dropping case against Countrywide's Mozilo

I'm not entirely sure anything Mozilo did rose to the level of a crime. Then again, I'm not entirely sure it didn't. Most probably, the civil prosecution was the best way to go, and that they nailed him on (regardless of who paid the penalty.) My biggest complaint is that the civil penaltes are not punitive enough. They should have the capability (but not the requirement) to put some of these companies out of businesses and individuals into bankruptcy. But they don't, so the bad guys pay a piddling fine and go off and bask on their terraces while peasants, er household staff, pour them another drink. And yes, $64mil is a piddling fine when you're playing at this level.

Nancy Genovese Lawsuit Updates: Town of Southampton in Default

Update to previous post: OOOPSIES. Looks like the Town Attorney for the locality is as big a dipshit as the officers involved. Nancy Genovese has won the case by default since Southampton did nothing in the case. Whether the whole $70mil judgment stands or not, who knows. I hope it does. Making them pay is the only way the Nazis learn... (and then mostly what they learn is to try harder not to get caught!) :)

WHEN THE RIGHT PEOPLE PICK THE WRONG HERO....

Another Reagan debunking. I'd like to place every one of these in the hands of everyone who thinks Reagan was a hard-core freakazoidal Repug like today's Repugs. He was farther right than I can see, and his treatment of the AIDS crisis blighted his soul, but he was NOT a Tea Party candidate. He's the sort they try to primary out of office. 

I thought we fought this out in the 60s and 70s

As is said often of others from the past, the Tea Partyistas would boot Reagan out of the party in heartbeat!

.

I'll probably be hiding all weekend as the brouhaha over Regan's 100th reaches fever pitch. What a crock. If Reagan was active today, with his tax increases, and social security strengthening, and what not, they'd run his ass out of the party. But, he is GOD, so they just ignore the inconvenient bits, like they do with the rest of reality

Who cares what the people want?!?!?

We say they need more guns! And bigger magazines! And assault weapons! And grenade launchers! And lower taxes so they can afford it all.
