“Derek Chauvin, arrested Friday on charges of third-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd, 46, was newly charged with an additional, more serious count of second-degree murder, according to court documents filed in the case.” The other three officers were charged with aiding and abetting Chauvin’s crimes. Each of them faced as many as 40 years in prison if convicted.
The Minnesota Attorney General has requested that bail be set at $1 million for each of the four former officers, court documents showed.
“Former defense secretary Jim Mattis compares Donald Trump to NAZIS, accuses him of ‘mockery of the Constitution’ and ‘abuse’ of power and slams ‘military leadership’ for taking part in ‘bizarre photo-op'”
But apart from that, he was quite complimentary.
“Mad Dog” Mattis, a hard-nosed former general in the US Marines, and once the most respected member of Trump’s cabinet, has not been critical of his former boss until now, but he made up for his long silence with some strong criticism. The president. not known for his thoughtful acceptance of criticism, fired back.

At last, a politician delivers on a promise of transparency.
“As they discussed the impact the coronavirus was having on the country, the 66-year-old politician began to remove her clothes … (She) did not realise that her webcam was still running, prompting screenshots of the mishap to circulate on social media.”
Her dad, a Civil War veteran, was 83 when she was born. Unable to read or write, she suffered from from mental disabilities and therefore qualified for federal financial support as a “helpless adult child of a veteran.”
Odd fact: At one time or another, her father fought for both sides in the Civil War.
In order to illustrate that Trump gets unfair special treatment from Twitter, one guy created a new account and simply Tweeted the exact same thing as Trump. He was soon suspended for twelve hours, exposing Twitter’s hypocrisy.
Stay tuned. He’s going to resume when his suspension is lifted, although it may not work now that Twitter is aware of his scheme.
The other half can’t imagine how that could be possible.
Bringing to mind that great folk song:
“An Irishman, I am, I am, I drinks me Irish booze …
and if you don’t like me Irish song, I’ll throw up on your shoes!”
By the way, I hate to disappoint my fellow stereotypists, but the Irish do not lead the world in per capita alcohol consumption, despite their best efforts. Pussies. They drink a lot, but not as much as Czechs or Germans. They also trail behind Lithuania and Moldova, and consume about the same amount of alcohol as the French or most Eastern Europeans.
You ski a while. You shoot a few elk. Ski some more.
I’m not sure if they score it by stopwatch or by body count.
Reminds me of that famous song from American Sportsman, the 1960s show in which Curt Gowdy would take some time off from incompetent baseball announcing in order to enter the wilderness and do rugged, manly stuff, like bludgeoning baby seals, with a rugged, manly guest star like Bing Crosby or Phyllis Diller:
Follow me through virgin forests
Follow me to rippling streams
And if God is willing
Some elk we’ll be killing
Come, follow me
Anyway, that was a particularly prolix way to say that a biathlon star, Miriam Neureuther, looks great without her top
Hate her teeth. Love everything else.
It’s posed, not a candid shot, and the pic has been enlarged far too much, so you should absolutely refuse to look
“As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1”.
The best comment on Trump’s church visit came from Sulu:
… he just wanted to spend more time in his hood.
No, not inside his neighborhood. Inside his Klan hood.
And now he will have plenty of leisure time.
He’ll be missed.
Dude, we live in Mayberry, RFD out here. If a bunch of outside agitators showed up in small Midwestern towns, they’d be kinda obvious.
Unless they tricked us and wore overalls!
Six years ago, her pop/synth duo, Ejecta, created a video for a single called “Eleanor Lye.” That video consisted basically of her writhing around naked.
