Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment

Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  Not the 14th Amendment of the Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution.  Misspoke early in my more than 12-minute LNAW ramble on the reversal of Roe v. Wade.  Basic stuff but don’t want to...

Sirhan Sirhan LNAW Update

Although implicitly discussed when I talk about the politics involved, I omitted any direct reference to the key fact that the notoriety of the crime or the public stature of the individual victim involved should not be a factor in making determinations during parole,...

New York Bias

Don’t get me wrong, New York City is one of the greatest cities in the world and possibly the greatest (don’t tell Chicago, LA, or Albuquerque I said that), but it is disrespectful to the rest of the country or in CNN’s case the world when they are...

Phew it’s Not One of my People

Every time there is a high profile act of terror such as what happened on the Northbound N train this morning in Brooklyn, there is a collective sigh of relief amongst often targeted races if and when they realize it’s not one of their people.  This is a...

RIP K-Mart

K-Mart down to three stores world-wide after this weekend. Sad to go on their website only to be able to order for pickup delivery at their locations in Miami, Long Island, or New Jersey. The iconic red light has gone black. RIP K-Mart!

Russian General

Could this Russian General Putin crony Aleksandr Dvornikov look any more like the Soviet bad guy from every old-school espionage movie? This guy doesn’t mess around. He’s definitely one scary dude.  Any guy who’s that tall and stands up straight...

Marine Le Pen vs Emmanuel Macron

Marine Le Pen is a beautiful name, especially when pronounced with a French accent. That shouldn’t be the criteria to elect an president but it is France we’re talking about here. It will send shockwaves around Europe and make things interesting around the...

What happened to Ye?

Either Kanye West sent a thank you card to Will Smith for becoming celebrity public enemy #1 or he’s pissed that he’s not getting any attention anymore. I think the latter holds true since Ye as he calls himself now is a product of the “any publicity...

Two Types of Special Covidiots

There are two types of special idiots that have developed out of this CONID-19 pandemic. One is the person who brags about never having contracted COVID because they have some sort of special genes, while the other is the person who thinks (or most likely wants)...

College Dropout Billionaires vs. Professional Chillers

I always find it comical when some wise guy or gal youngster living at home and/or off cryptocurrency whines on about how “Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk etc. dropped out of college and became billionaires” so there is no need for college. First off,...

Weed Shop Loiterers

Downtown Albuquerque busy on this Saturday night as usual. Marijuana now fully legal in New Mexico creating a whole new industry. Workers loitering outside the weed shops trying to meet and greet patrons. Definitely adds a theatrical touch to an already busy evening....

Putin

Many want Vladimir Putin to be charged as a war criminal. Good luck serving that warrant on him. Doubt the rules of criminal procedure or any bureaucratic international tribunal will execute properly within the halls of the Kremlin. Definitely some jurisdictional...

Will Smith Banned

Will Smith banned from attending Oscar ceremonies for 10 years. Ouch. No criminal liability since Chris Rock did not want to press charges. Often DA offices will proceed even without a cooperative victim to “ensure the overall safety of the public” as they...

New U.S. Supreme Court Justice

New Supreme Court Justice: Kentanji Brown Jackson.  Historic figure but polarizing nomination. Let’s hope the Judiciary skates above politics as they are supposed to. At least that’s what they taught us in elementary school social studies class....
