Actually, my thought was that Clarkson could have raped a child in Rotherham and gotten off more lightly - as long as he converted to Islam first.

+Bruce Schneier explains why mass surveillance is a waste of time, money, and effort.
Collecting irrelevant data on everyone is like drinking from a fire hose — it’s impossible to sort the important bits from everything else.

+John D. Bell If bureaucrats want to clean up the community, they can pick up brooms and start sweeping the streets.

I don't play CAH, but I approve of each and every one of these cards for CAH and expect to see them in play at #TCEP  this year (See https://barkingmad.org/) for details.
 
DC-themed Cards Against Humanity!  Belovèd Spousal Unit sent me this from That Other Place...  Some of them are pretty dated; some of them are pretty new; most of them are pretty painful!  ;>

As his dying wish, Marion Barry wanted a large statue of _________ erected in Ward 8._

Not that I attend #GenCon  (I prefer #WorldBoardgamingChampionships ), but I'm sure that they can find somewhere other than Indiana to spend their money.  Good on them.
 
Way to step up to the plate, GenCon! :D

From the Fine Article:

Behold the items on an aspiring tyrant's checklist that they've provided their successors:

- A precedent that allows the president to kill citizens in secret without prior judicial or legislative review

- The power to detain prisoners indefinitely without charges or trial

- Ongoing warrantless surveillance on millions of Americans accused of no wrongdoing, converted into a permanent database so that data of innocents spied upon in 2007 can be accessed in 2027

- Using ethnic profiling to choose the targets of secret spying, as the NYPD did with John Brennan's blessing

- Normalizing situations in which the law itself is secret -- and whatever mischief is hiding in those secret interpretations

- The permissibility of droning to death people whose identities are not even known to those doing the killing

- The ability to collect DNA swabs of people who have been arrested even if they haven't been convicted of anything

- A torture program that could be restarted with an executive order

Even if you think Bush and Obama exercised those extraordinary powers responsibly, what makes you think every president would? How can anyone fail to see the huge potential for abuses?
More and more, we're counting on having angels in office and making ourselves vulnerable to devils.

So bloody true.
 
WASHINGTON—In response to the Republican senator from Texas announcing his presidential candidacy, Time magazine subscribers told reporters Monday that they are bracing for the inevitable issue featuring a close-up of Ted Cruz’s face.

From the Fine Article (of which you should read the whole thing):

Something unnatural is happening in Portland, and Police Union President Daryl Turner isn't going to put up with it.

The proper order of things is upended. Black is white and white is black, cats and dogs cohabit. Madness!

A judge has disbelieved a cop.

the sarcasm's a bit thick, but interesting nonetheless.
