Yup, Edward Snowden summed that up nicely.

One of our more grotesque politicians (and that’s really saying something during this administration), Chris Christie, ordered a beach closed to the general public for a government shutdown during our largest, most popular national holiday, then parked his voluminous ass right in the center of it:

I’d like to think she (yes, it was a woman driver) experienced a few moments of remorse afterwords, and perhaps relief that she hadn’t killed me. The experience might have perhaps made her a more careful driver in future

I’d have been pissed off as hell, however, if she had tried to sue me, or my family, for the emotional stress she had suffered as a result of nearly killing me.

Nurse Refuses to Perform CPR on Elderly Resident : Resident Dies

She collapsed in the dining room and was struggling to breathe. Staff called 911 for an ambulance. While waiting for the ambulance to arrive, the dispatcher tried to persuade a nurse at the facility to start CPR but the nurse refused, citing company policy (full story here –

I presume company policy in this case stems from fear of litigation if things go wrong?

Petition to Deport Piers from USA

piers morgan uncle samI’m not a great fan of Piers Morgan as a person or his interview style but . . .

here he is “interviewing” Larry Pratt, the executive director of Gun Owners of America who believes the way to prevent more shooting atrocities is to arm more people

Following this interview, gun supporters have launched a petition to have Piers Morgan deported from the USA on the grounds that he “is engaged in a hostile attack against the US Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment.”

Hhmm, seems like the First Amendment right to Free Speech applies only to US citizens and not to anyone else living or working in the USA ?
