So I was told, after sending them bunches of the sockpuppet messages with more than 10 judge-its.

Now if they eliminate his multiple puppets, we'll be all set!!

I suspect without the ability to manipulate the meaningless judge-its, she'll lose interest and go elsewhere.

In her booking mugshot, Barbara J. De Paolo, then 79, has puffy, sad eyes. Her face is washed out in the glare of the camera flash at the Palm Beach County Jail.

Arrested in 2011 in Boca Raton, she was facing charges she beat her elderly husband. She spent only one night in jail, and the case never went forward. Her husband died two months later, and De Paolo tried to moved on.

But her face and the cause of her arrest are etched online, splattered across the first page of a Google search. Numerous websites aggregate booking mugs from across the country, then leave them there even after suspects have been acquitted. To have the pictures removed can cost hundreds of dollars, say people lobbying against the sites.

The problem moved a St. Petersburg-area lawmaker. Rep. Carl F. Zimmermann, D-Palm Harbor, filed a bill Monday that would require websites to remove the information of acquitted suspects within 15 days or face fines.

"At that point, this type of information becomes libel," Zimmermann said. He called it extortion that the websites charge a fee for taking the pictures down.

(I agree, think that people should have the right to privacy, especially if they are not convicted)

Sure, that's what we need!! HAHAHAHAHAHA
A 30% sales tax!!
Your ignorance is like the universe, infinite!!
""Analysis
How to Make 30 Look Like 23
Americans for Fair Taxation offers the following plain-language interpretation of H.R. 25:
Americans for Fair Taxation: A 23-percent (of the tax-inclusive sales price) sales tax is imposed on all retail sales for personal consumption of new goods and services.
It is the parenthetical that is important, for it hides the real truth of the tax rate.
First consider the way in which sales tax is normally figured. A consumer good that carries a $100 price tag might be subject to a 5 percent sales tax. That means that the final bill for the item is $105. The 5 percent figure is the amount of tax that is charged on the original purchase price. But now suppose that instead of pricing the item at $100, the shop owner simply priced the item at $105, then sent $5 directly to the state. The $105 price would be a tax-inclusive sales price. But $5 is just 4.8 percent of $105. That 4.8 percent number, however, is relatively meaningless. You are still paying exactly the same 5 percent tax on the item.
The 23 percent number in H.R. 25 is the equivalent of the 4.8 percent in the previous example. To calculate the real rate of the sales tax, we have to determine the original purchase price of an item. We can begin with the same $100 item, keeping in mind that a price tag that reads $100 has sales tax already built in. If our tax rate is 23 percent of the tax-inclusive sales price, then of the $100 final price,$23 of those dollars will be for taxes, meaning that the original pre-tax price of the item is $77. To get $23 in taxes on a $77 item, one must impose a 30 percent tax. In other words, a 23 percent sales tax on the tax-inclusive sales price is equivalent to a 30 percent tax on the actual price of the item.
FairTax proponents object to the 30 percent number, claiming that critics use the larger number to frighten people. Americans for Fair Taxation claims that it uses the tax-inclusive number to make it easier to compare the FairTax to the income tax that it will replace (since most of us think of income tax rates on an inclusive basis). But we are not accustomed to thinking of sales taxes inclusively. The result is that many FairTax supporters (about 15 percent of those who wrote to us, for example) do not understand that the 23 percent figure is tax inclusive.
Our analysis of the FairTax used a figure of 34 percent as the basic exclusive tax rate. One e-mailer complained that our number was at least 10 percentage points “higher than [the FairTax] is” because we calculated it as an addition to retail prices. But our 34 percent number is not 10 percentage points higher than the legislation. A 34 percent exclusive number is equivalent to a 25 percent tax inclusive rate – only 2 percentage points higher than the FairTax bill. We think that, intentional or not, the use of the tax-inclusive 23 percent rate has misled a lot of FairTax proponents.""

The only President in history to need the Supreme Court to put him in office!! And this after he lost the election!!
Point being, Obama won both his elections with over 50% of the popular vote, the first since Eisenhower to do so.

Want to stop the drug problem? Go to the source. Ban the manufacture of oxycontin, who make billions, legally. Stop the importation of heroin and cocaine; it could be done, but it won't because drugs and arms make the world go around. One finances the other, and you, are a dummy.

Man shot dead in confrontation over loud music

A pre-dawn confrontation over loud music playing from a car led to the fatal shooting of a man in an apartment complex parking lot Thursday.

Two off-duty security guards, one of whom lives at the Whispering Palms apartments at 4530 NW 36th St., confronted a man in his 20s about loud music coming from his car shortly before 3:15 a.m., the Broward Sheriff's Office said.

The men told investigators that the victim reached in the direction of one guard's gun and the second guard, fearing for their safety, shot him, according to Broward Sheriff's spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion.

A woman who said she was the victim's roommate said the shooting was not justified.

"Loud music doesn't give anyone a right to kill someone," said Taby Woodard, 20.

Extremism in the Defense of Tradition

Auster’s blog, View from the Right, contains more than 20,000 entries and comments. A generation hence, an American studies student looking for a window into radical right-wing disillusion with post-millennial America could do far worse in dissertation topics than exploring the work of this idiosyncratic figure.
