Should she dated him and he was married? No! But a lot of us make mistakes.He wasn't supposed to kill her for a mistake he made right along with her.Why didn't he kill himself instead of her.He was the one scared of the outcome with his wife.His loyalty was to his family.He stepped out.Prayers still for both families.The relatives and kids are paying a price for something they didn't cause or ask for and didn't deserve.
She didn't ask to be murdered.I don't care what the situation is ,if he would have kept his wand in his pants and not cheated on his wife he wouldn't have had a heated argument about an abortion.People quick to blame the victim.He knew he was married so he kills her and she brought on herself?He isn't God and for the simple fact he was a coward not wanting his wife to know he took a mother from her kids.You man enough to step out be man enough to deal with the consequences!
I believe it was Spook Murphy who said, if you're going to be in a fight, get in the first lick.
@datGuy - What branch of the military were you in, again?
@barf - I think he is a moderately successful manager, who doesn't understand the fullness of what his expert advisors have told him he needs to do, so his public pronouncements seem disjointed and highlight his poor grasp of the details of those proposals. That doesn't mean his administration will necessarily be ineffective, or that he doesn't have a big picture level understanding of what he is trying to do. The only way we are going to find out what that plan means for large cities, is to watch and see how it plays out. It won't take very long to see where it's headed. And I agree with your assessment of the boom/bust cycle by the way..
I agree AP. One of the things that people forget about Trump, is that he enjoys wheeling and dealing in high stakes negotiations. In his world, using a bald-faced lie as the beginning of a bargaining position is a rational way to do things. He is completely unused to the idea that people are taking notes, and may want to try to hold him to every word he says. The response of his opposition to this tendency, will determine whether or not they can move him in the negotiations which are going to be required, in order to obtain the results which America needs from this administration. He is petulant and vindictive, so legislators will need to be conscious about managing their relationship with him, or they will be on the outside looking in. And with his cabinet choices as hard-line right as they are, that isn't a good place to be for most liberal or moderate constituencies. Picking fights with him at this early stage doesn't make sense, unless you don't think you are gonna need anything out of the Executive branch for the next four years. The ones who are lining up now to do that seem shortsighted to me. As I've said before, we should ignore his bizarre tweetery, and watch what he actually does. That will be where pressure can be productively applied. The rest is childish grandstanding.
Based on my experiences with her as client, the actions were warranted. She took my money and was always hard to contact, never returned phone calls. She knew she closed her practice; however, she never informed clients. Obviously, she did not value her license or clients. She needs courses and human lessons in integrity and constant checks of her moral compass. She has proven unfit to hold the title of attorney. Good job to whomever removed her from such a noble profession and practice.
I have found that it is best to judge by what politicians do rather than what they say. For example, Trump has said some pretty silly things about Putin, mostly complementary. Yet his cabinet nominees are all harsh critics of the Russian leader. So go figure what he really thinks.
Discerning a motive, beyond self-interest, behind any politician's action is frankly beyond my skill set.
lemme see here, thumbing thru my Big Book of Urban Renewal (both Republican and Democrat editions) annnnd yep there it is. Anytime a politician threatens to repair the inner city it means getting rid of poor people and enriching developers. Of course the Trump method will refuse payment to contractors, so there's a tax savings right there.
Fewer US soldiers dying but we're still bombing the shit out of non combatants. And of course paying the max for non Canadian pharmaceuticals. If only we had an African American or female president.
@Oak, there's far fewer soldiers dying.
Better empty seats and empty caskets, than what we had before.
I look forward to seeing the secret plan to eliminate ISIS.
thanks for changing the topic.
So we all agree that at the very least, Trump and Cohen share common motives?
Substitute "believes everything he says is true" for "says is true", please.
Sorry, brain outran fingers.
Probably right. Steve sees the benefits of pandering to his base, no matter how unseemly that pandering may be.
Well, if one is quite willing to believe everything Trump says is true, you must be willing to accept that he means it.
I think APop's 6:09 assessment is spot on.
Trump's comments have already roiled the private-activity bonds and LIHTC markets which just so happen to be a key financing mechanism for urban redevelopment and infill projects. Either he is an idiot that does not understand the impact of his proposed financial and economic platforms- which would not bode well for the next 4 years- or he is very much aware of the impact- which bodes just as poorly for the future of the nation's inner cities.
Unfortunately, this coincides with the earliest signs that the wild building boom occurring in many of the nation's more vibrant cities (Nashville is not the only town with a skyline dominated by construction cranes) may be slowing. Too early to say it is a full bubble, but enough to raise eyebrows as the number of proposed projects for the mid and long term have decreased significantly.
What President hasn't said the nation needs to repair inner cities?
@AP - Mr. Cohen has been rewarded over the last few years by a sympathetic Executive. I suppose he has calculated that such favor has ended, and he ain't getting a lot out of Trump no matter what he does.
So Cohen decided to thumb his nose at Trump early and maybe score some points with the home boys. What the hell, right? Nothing to lose...
Ah. You don't like what Trump says so that is reason enough to boycott?
I understand that point if it were you or me that were boycotting. But Steve is elected Congressman who was elected to do the best job he could for the 9th District. I don't live there, but if he were my Congressman, I would be asking how boycotting, and doing so in the press, benefits the 9th District.
One of the things Trump has been saying, which presumably is something you agree with, is that the nation needs to repair its inner cities.
My guess is that the 9th District might not be at top of the list.
"The Left has forgotten who they even are," then they are not the Left. I think the Klobuchar Amendment vote shows pretty much who is and who ain't; at least who ain't.
