Better the 'weight' of RomneyHeritagecare, which at least is 'designed' to help and save people, than the ridiculous weight of an illegal, mistaken war, hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths, actual torture, and a global financial meltdown for good measure.
That's what I thought at first, but on a careful re-read, most of them became obvious. The only person not specifically called out was the (presumed) photographer, Ferguson. It didn't help that some of the quoted segments were pretty confusing: "Nothing in Neri's complaint supports a claim that any of the respondents disparaged Neri's art. Accordingly, Neri has not stated a claim for trade libel."
That being said, it wasn't an easy read, and it could have been better explained. To be fair to Tim though, he was quoting Rebecca Tushnet and it was her passages that were the densest.
In the US you have some sort of 'contributory felony' statutes - for instance, if someone dies as part of a felony, all those involved can be charged with murder. So once you accept that as a principle, you can accept that PEOPLE SHOULD ACCEPT RESPONSIBILTY for their psychotic hounding/raping/whatever and pay some kind of price.
Or is it only the poor and other victims who should 'pay' and 'take responsibility'?
He's obviously never read the comments sections of WND or Free Republic! If libelling a public official were a federal crime, half the Tea Party would be behind bars! (Leaving aside most of them already expect the government to any minute now put them in death camps and even worse, TAKE AWAY THEIR PENIS SUBSITUTES!)
Snowden re-programmed the flight computer to fly the plane to Benghazi, but because the 0bummer fascist state is desperate to avoid even passing mention of that world-changing debacle where four whole Americans died (under a democRAT watch!) they virused the flight computer and the resulting conflict led to all passenger phones being bricked and the plane ending up in the Southern Indian Ocean also imitating a brick.
I was watching The Dark Knight Returns last night, which parodies 1980s obsessions with psycho-bullshit, where one bullshit artist, (sorry, 'psychologist') was saying that "Batman created the criminals, they were drawn in by his aura and so were realyl victims themselves". Seems like an element of this here too - obviously Manly Putin couldn't/wouldn't do anything wrong before Snowden 'enabled' him and 'corrupted' him....
Just because it doesn't apply to a specific 'person' doesn't mean he hasn't broken this law. It looks pretty clear that any reasonable person might think he did plan to shoot someone, enough that anyone who saw him might fear for their life.
