posted 09/22/2015, 9:07 AM (TheNewspaper) [Category: General] Red light camera companies will now find it much more difficult to block public votes over automated enforcement in Texas.

Since the Galt's Gulch fiasco, I've avoided posting content from Berwick like the plague. Hearing him sell Galt's Gulch like it was some libertarian utopia when it's in socialist-militarist Chile was off-putting initially, but I just figured at the time it was just him being a salesman. Of course, we found out later the project was a big scam, though he claimed he was just a dupe and blamed it all on this "Ken Johnson" shyster (who it appears is now taking his turn burning him back). Berwick has since moved on to pushing some "Shemitah" prophesy end-of-the-world type scam and appears to be in total self-destruct mode selling fraudulently obtained passports and the like. As readers know, I don't get involved in infighting and drama, but this is just getting ridiculous. - Chris, InfoLib

"No doubt Donald Trump would be a bad president, as they all are -- though his observation that the Iraq war was a disaster, and that while Saddam kept terrorists under control, Iraq is now a haven for terrorism, is better than we hear from anyone else -- but surely there is more to say about the Trump phenomenon."
Bill appreciates that Donald shoots from the hip, even if he's still a filthy rich plutocrat.
