  1. An excellent job bringing the juggler and "hoopla" together....
  2. Well, seeing as how people still bring up Vince Foster, no, I don't think this ever goes away.
  3. For gawd's sake, don't go for the juggler....he was just hired by the Clinton Foundation to entertain people!
  4. I know he admitted he was wrong about Jade Helm because he said it in a response to me. Have no idea what thread it was on, however....
  5. To be fair to Swamps, he admitted he was wrong about Jade Helm (and maybe Ebola?).
  6. FTFY.
  7. Do you know how many people her age are on Coumadin? FFS, I've been on Coumadin since 2009 and will be for life and I am far healthier than 98% of the population. Being palced on Coumadin after two clots is very common, even though they were completely unrelated. So a colleague, not a doctor, sent her information about a drug....information that, AFAWK, was unsolicited and never acted upon. No history of her getting a prescription for the drug or ever taking it. Funny how the letter above mentions other prescsriptions but left that one out. Nothing in those e-mails indicates that they were talking about Clinton or any symptoms she may be exhibiting. No "Hey Boss, I think this may be you", no "Oh schitt....that is exactly what I feel like"....nothing. Just "that is spooky descriptive." Of course, it is just that kind of vaugeness that sets conspiracy theorists salivating like Pvlov's Dogs because they get to create all sorts of nonsensical theories and hit the interwebds with them.
  8. As son as the State gives any board the authority to act in this way, and offers the power of the State to enforce their decisions, you have violated the First Amendment. And before you start on again about how you aren't talking about the First Amendment, this conversation started about the behavior of US journalists and that was the center of the discussion. Everything you have discussed / outlined is a violation of the First Amendment.
  9. Let's take the e-mails at face value....they are dated 2011. It is now 2016. Is there any evidence that such conditions exist now? No? Moving on...
  10. Meh.....he doesn't care about the First Amendment.
  11. Ah, I see....you are back to playing semantics. OK, here is what you said... If the State is giving these agencies the authority to enforce a code of conduct, those bodies are agents of the State. They can't do that. It is a violation of the First Amendment. You can not care all you want if it violates the First Amendment....we tend to view it a little differently.
  12. Um....yeah....that was called "the law". Why do you keep ignoring the First Amendment? I have quoted it twice for you. The government / state cannot set up a regulatory body to enforce a journalistic code of conduct. I don't care what they do in other countries....what you are describing is a violation of the First Amendment. Period,
  13. So how does this body "regulate" the profession if they do not have the weight of the government / state behind them? And don't say "the law" because that is the state / government.
  14. Who creates "the law" Oh yeah, that's right....the government. But don't take my word for it....here is the First Amendment. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
  15. You have absolutely NO IDEA what you are talking about..... Any regulatory body that is set up by the government / administration / state / pick the name you want is an agent of the state. Period, end of story, not up for debate.Want proof? School newspapers at public schools. They are run by students and the school administrators cannot influence, force, edit or censor content because they are agents of the state (i.e. they are funded by the government). This is not opinion, this is a matter of determined law. Your attempt to use hiring practices as examples of "the law" is as misguided as your previous attempt to use regulating medical professionals....it has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the Freedom of Speech.
