Yes, Most Judges Are this Stupid (And why lawyers make terrible Judges of the Constitution)
The judge who just ruled the Constitution requires states to recognize same-sex marriage? Yeah, this judge also thinks the Constitution says all men are created equal:
"Our Constitution declares that 'all men' are created equal. Surely this means all of us," Judge Allen wrote on the first page of her opinion. That line opens the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence and appears nowhere in the Constitution.Somewhere Thomas Jefferson and James Madison are rolling over in their graves.
This is also why we can't trust lawyers to know the difference between 'Constitutional' and 'I like it so it must be in the Constitution'. These people aren't taught the Constitution in 'Constitutional Law', instead they are taught what Courts have said about the Constitution.
It's studying the Constitution, once removed. Not studying the object of study itself, instead only studying what others have said about the object.
I'd bet that if you asked a sample of judges in the country if they can name one thing that, say Article VII of the Constitution talks about, that fewer than 10% could do it.
I'd also guess that an even smaller percentage could define 'Constitutionalism' (which is the notion that government can be limited through written charter).
Instead, they are taught 'legal reasoning' -- or how to think like a lawyer. They are then taught case law, which is that 'law' is nothing more than what judges say it is and that it evolves over time. They then apply this 'legal reasoning' and case law methodologies to the Constitution.
But the Constitution can't be read like normal laws nor does normal legal reasoning apply to it. The entire reason for writing down the Constitution was to insure that the will of the people superseded the whims of government. And since judges are government, then deciding what the Constitution means based on what people in government says is very much the opposite of what the Founders intended. It is letting the inmates decide the rules of the asylum.
Don't get me wrong, this is not a diatribe against judicial review. It is a diatribe against judges who are too dumb to realize that normal legal reasoning cannot be applied to the Constitution.
The Constitution trumps normal law because it was 'ordained' (See Preamble and Article VII) by the people. This is at the root of the argument for judicial review -- the sovereign will of the people as established in the Constitution cannot be overridden by agents of the government -- normally state legislatures and Congress. What judges fail to see, though, is that agents of the government included them.
There are three branches of government, not two. Courts are government!
The reason we wrote down the Constitution was to limit what people in government do -- including judges. And because the Constitution is written law that trumps case law, it must be interpreted as written and not as we would have liked it to have been written. It can never 'evolve' because it isn't case law. It cannot mean one thing one day and then something else the next day. There are no 'principles' that trump the actual text of the document. Judges are no more empowered to exercise power not granted to them by the sovereign people than Congress or state legislatures.
This judge needs to be impeached. In fact, all judges that 'find' things in the Constitution that aren't there need to be impeached. If a judge thinks there are Constitutional 'principles' they need to be impeached. If they think the Constitution can 'evolve' they need to be impeached.
If the Constitution empowers the judiciary to check Congress, then it also empowers Congress to check an out of control federal judiciary. Impeach the bastards!
Yeah, I know that ain't going to happen anytime soon. But one can dream, can't they?

R Legislator Convicted for Assault on Women Still in Statehouse, Media Ignores
Did I say "R"? I meant "D". Which kind of explains why pretty much no one in the media is reporting this, yet they spend literally hours and hours of air time discussing what Republicans say. Because WAR ON WOMEN! or something.
Remember, this guy was actually convicted yet the first time I heard about it was when I got an email from DaTechGuy this morning. The media always frames these things as local aberrations when it's a D so pays it no national attention, but when the same thing happens with an R it's a national story because its indicative of some broader phenomenon.

Muslim State of Ohio Employee Pleads Guilty to Bribery (Le Bump-ed)
The former State Deputy Treasurer of Ohio, exposed on The Jawa Report as a man with deep ties to Islamist extremists and of giving out state contracts to his friends and relatives, has pleaded guilty to bribery charges:
As his wife quietly cried in the federal courtroom, a former high-ranking Ohio official admitted yesterday to a $3.2 million kickback scheme that occurred while he was the state’s deputy treasurer.That crying wife? She was one of the recipients int he kickback scheme.
Amer Ahmad, 39, now of Chicago, pleaded guilty to bribery and to conspiracy to commit bribery, wire fraud and money laundering, two of the eight counts against him.
Apparently he pleaded guilty to keep his wife out of jail. But wait, there's more:
The most recent was Columbus attorney Mohammed Noure Alo, 35, who pleaded guilty on Friday to wire fraud. As part of a plea agreement, a conspiracy charge against Alo will be dropped.And how did Ahmad know Alo? The two attended a mosque with extremist ties together.
Ahmad’s troubles might be just beginning.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas W. Squires said an investigation continues into questions about a contract that the state treasurer’s office had during Ahmad’s tenure with State Street Bank in Boston. The bank hired Alo, an immigration lawyer, as its lobbyist shortly before it received $32 million in contracts from the treasurer’s office.
So, watch out for the cornholes guys!
Thanks to Barbarossa.

Private Organization Forcibly Takes DNA From Random Drivers (update: Private as in George Soros)
Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, purporting themselves to be police officers, directed vehicles to pull off a main road into a parking lot, where the drivers were ordered to give DNA samples.
What's most frightening is that so many willingly gave up their Constitutuional rights without even a whimper.
Some drivers along a busy North Fort Worth street on Friday were stopped at police roadblock and directed into a parking lot, where they were asked by federal contractors for samples of their breath, saliva and even blood. [...]
Fort Worth police Sgt. Kelly Peel said he could not immediately locate any record of Fort Worth officers being involved in the roadblock but said he was still checking Monday evening.
A spokesman for nearby Haltom City police said his department was not involved.
NBC DFW confirmed that the survey was done by a government contractor, the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, which is based in Calverton, Md.
PIRE is a privately funded nonprofit organization that researches alcohol and drug issues.
Update by Howie: Behind PIRE is the Dark Lord George Soros.
P.S. He also wants your guns.

How To Hack Helthcare.gov Without Really Trying
Justin Hadley logged on to HealthCare.gov to evaluate his insurance options after his health plan was canceled. What he discovered was an apparent security flaw that disclosed eligibility letters addressed to individuals from another state.Too late Mr. Dougall, the site clearly states in the comments section (available under view source on your browser) that the government now owns your personal information and they are free to do with it as they please and if they send it to say someone else, you can't sue them for doing their job because they are the government.
“I was in complete shock,” said Hadley, who contacted Heritage after becoming alarmed at the breach of privacy.
After learning of the privacy breach, Dougall spent Friday evening trying to contact representatives from HealthCare.gov to no avail; he spent an hour waiting on the telephone and an online chat session was unhelpful. He also wrote to Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Tim Scott (R-SC), along with Representative Joe Wilson (R-SC).
“I want my personal information off of that website,” Dougall said.
See how this works, its similar to Sodomy, you're um, yeah that.

Good News! Obama Waves Ban on Arming Terrorists for Syrian Rebels
President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to "vetted" opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.Well al-Qaeda is not a state... yet. But helping them acquire a state somehow apparently became in our national interest.
Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad's regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.
The president, citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, announced today that he would "waive the prohibitions in sections 40 and 40A of the AECA related to such a transaction."
Those two sections prohibit sending weaponry to countries described in section 40(d): "The prohibitions contained in this section apply with respect to a country if the Secretary of State determines that the government of that country has repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism," Congress stated in the Arms Control Export Act.

Filthy Filner has .... Supporters?
Typical Bob Filner supporter
You'd think that "Bob Filner supporters" would be the least likely phrase in politics. You'd be wrong:
[San Diego Mayor Bob Filner's] supporters, which include some labor unions and Latinos, claim Filner is being denied due process, and the recall effort is orchestrated by those who oppose his political agenda.Are Democrats this petty? Why yes, they are.
And notice which elements of the party are supporting Filner. Why don't you take your Amnesty and stuff it down the Filner pipe.

Must Read: Nidal Hasan More Honest than Obama
You have to read this from Mark Steyn. All of it. But here's the key takeaway:
Hence, the Internet petition. Linking to it from their homepage, my colleagues at National Review Online promoted it with the tag: “Thirteen people lost their lives with dozens of others wounded. And now the man responsible wants to claim it was workplace violence.”Hasn't the argument by the Left whenever any one in the military accidentally stepped on the toe of one of our enemies who then cried torture! something along the lines of we're better then they are, we have to keep the moral high ground.
That’s not true — and actually it’s grossly unfair to Major Hasan. He’s admirably upfront about who and what he is — a “Soldier of Allah,” as he put on his business card. On Tuesday, he admitted he was a traitor who had crossed over from “the bad side” (America’s) to “the good side” (Islam’s). He has renounced his U.S. citizenship and its effete protections such as workplace-violence disability leave. He professes loyalty to America’s enemies. He says, “I am the shooter.” He helpfully informs us that that’s his gun. In this week’s one-minute statement, he spoke more honestly and made more sense than Obama, Gates, Casey, the Armed Forces Court of Appeals, two judges, the prosecution and defense lawyers, and mountains of bureaucratic reports and media coverage put together.
It was the same argument they used for closing Gitmo. But isn't being honest also a moral value we should hold our military to?
When an avowed traitor and terrorist is more honest than the Administration and military brass prosecuting him, then haven't we lost the moral high ground? Why isn't the Left complaining about that?
It's simple. It was never about the moral high ground to the Left. It was always about hating America. Nothing more, nothing less.
Oh, they say they love America. And they may believe it. But it's the kind of love an abusive husband has for his wife: if only she'd lose a few pounds, then everything would be ok between us.
Yeah, he really "loves" that fat ugly bitch. Those are love marks around her neck.

Tom Friedman: Farmers Are Kinda Like al Qaeda
(Photo courtesy NY Times)
Is Thomas Friedman the dumbest columnist in America? Short answer: yes. Long answer: hell yes:
Our film crew came to look at the connection between the drought in Kansas and the rise in global food prices that helped to fuel the Arab uprisings. But I stumbled upon another powerful environmental insight here: the parallel between how fossil fuels are being used to power monoculture farms in the Middle West and how fossil fuels are being used to power wars to create monoculture societies in the Middle East. And why both are really unhealthy for their commons.He goes on to draw some sort of allegorical connection between Western "monoagriculture" and radicals Islamists who want a "monoculture":
What is going on in the Arab world today is a relentless push, also funded by fossil fuels, for more monocultures. It’s Al Qaeda trying to “purify” the Arabian Peninsula. It’s Shiites and Sunnis, funded by oil money, trying to purge each other in Iraq and SyriaCorn farmers are like al Qaeda. Soybean farmers the Taliban. And moisture farmers -- the ultimate in monoagriculture? Well, I guess they're Hezbollah.
But seriously, this guy is a noted "intellectual" on the Left. So, you'd think he would have read Adam Smith.
"Monoagriculture" is just what Adam Smith called "task specialization". When one person -- or one nation -- does one job he tends to do it very well and the thing he produces tends to be much, much cheaper. This isn't advanced economic theory, and it's something that all schools of economics agree upon -- even neo-Keynsians, like Friedman's idol Paul Krugman.
Forget Adam Smith. Even Karl Mark understood this.
You know what we call farmers who aren't engaged in "monoagriculture"? Subsistence farmers. And the occasional hippie.
The defining characteristic of which is this: they are dirt poor.
What Tom Friedman says about monoagricutlure uses more fossil fuels and water than it's alternative is true. Those things do cost more. But what he doesn't tell you is that the substitute for these things is labor.
So, you don't want to use a modern tractor or harvester? Try picking corn by hand or reaping wheat with a scythe. Sure, less greenhouse gasses emitted. Sure, there's less of a chance for catastrophic failure of a crop.
But it's also way more expensive! So, too, when farmers aren't allowed to specialize. Food becomes more expensive. There's a reason farmers in Idaho tend to focus on potatoes and farmers in Mississippi on soybeans. This isn't rocket science, and it's not advanced economics.
If rocketing food prices helped cause the Arab Spring and its consequent unrest in the Middle East, as Friedman argues, then let's see what the price of basic staples like corn or potatoes will be when farmers are forced to "diversify". Which is just another way of saying "planting less of it in lieu of something else". It's more expensive that way.
And then to draw some sort of comparison between that and ... al Qaeda? Because .... diversity!
I'm surprised he didn't try to work in Trayvon Martin into the argument. Because of diversity!
Which once again goes to show that stupid ain't just a river in Egypt.

Good Old Boys at KYEM Only Wasted 5.6 Million of Your Tax Dollars
KYEM that's the Kentucky Department of Emergency Management. They spent your money on such things as alcohol and Elvis impersonators. Then falsified receipts to make it appear they were legitimate expenses.
When the state auditor tried to Audit the books, the director Gen. John W. Heltzel threatened employees not the talk to the auditor, lest he would retaliate against them at work.
An examination of the state agency that coordinates disaster relief turned up massive misspending and abuses of public trust, including $103,000 in taxpayer money spent on liquor, food and entertainment at an annual gala.
Edelen released the findings of the audit Tuesday at a news conference in Frankfort. He reported $2.3 million in questionable spending from the agency, which handles hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grant money meant for disaster stricken communities.
"The report paints a picture of agency leadership that does not believe the rules apply to it," Edelen said in a news release. "The findings raise concerns about waste and abuse that may have gone undetected and jeopardize federal funding meant to prepare the Commonwealth for emergencies."
Along with alleged misspending and poor accounting, auditors accused KYEM officials of intimidating employees to keep them from coming forward with allegations of abuse.
"As auditors were wrapping up the exam, KYEM employees informed them that the director had openly threatened retaliation upon learning who talked to the auditor's staff," the office said in its findings.
The auditors also found instances in which documents were apparently altered to cover up misspending.
All the parties involved were appointed by Democratic Governor Steve Beshear.
Mistakes may have been made," the agency replied, but "no illegal, immoral or unethical actions have been initiated or condoned by the division leadership."I mean what you expect General Heltzel to buy his own lunch on only 80k per year plus his salary as a general in the national guard? Don't you know times are hard?
Edelen brushed aside that defense during his news conference.
"There is no such thing as accidentally altering documents," Edelen said. "They are literally caught red-handed here."
A friend of Jawa who knows General Heltzel and actually did serve his country describes him to me as, "An arrogant POS".

Reuters Still Promoting "White Hispanic" Thing
You know, as the first White African American in the Oval Office, I'd expect President Obama to speak out on this:
Zimmerman, a white Hispanic man, was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter on Saturday after a racially charged trial that has triggered demonstrations across the country.This reminds me of a scene from King of the Hill that I always thought was funny. I tried to find a video clip, but couldn't.
It was a quip from Khan (a Laotian) about Tiger Woods being the first Asian PGA star.

Facebook Group Promotes "RIOT for Trayvon"
Don't accuse them of not giving the police fair warning .....
"They don't think we will tear this mutha fucka up! LIKE IF YOU READY TO RIDE! LET'S FLEX OUR MUSCLE! WHAT, YOU SCARED?"
And another of their posts:
"JUSTICE IS AN EYE FOR AN EYE"
This would be the same Facebook that closed my account, claiming that I had violated their TOS. And since the guy who tipped me about the account also sent me proof that he already has complained to Facebook about the Trayvon Riot organizers, then every minute this group is still on Facebook is a minute that Facebook is complicit.
UPDATE: It looks like the Facebook page is down.
State Dept Spent $630,000 on Sock Puppets
The real problem here is that the sock puppets are the best people we have in the State Department.
State Department officials spent $630,000 to get more Facebook “likes,” prompting employees to complain to a government watchdog that the bureau was “buying fans” in social media, the agency’s inspector general says.Wow just think how many Priuseses they could have bought with that. Or security guards even.
The department’s Bureau of International Information Programs spent the money to increase its “likes” count between 2011 and March 2013.

“Some of the loudest shouts came when a reader spoke the name of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects who was killed by police during a gunfight.

IRS Official's Lawyer: Lois Lerner Will Plead The Fifth Before The House Oversight Committee Hearing
[ZIP]WASHINGTON – A top IRS official in the division that reviews nonprofit groups will invoke the Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer questions before a House committee investigating the agency’s improper screening of conservative nonprofit groups.Her lawyer wants her excused from the hearing so as not to embarrass and burden her
Lois Lerner, the head of the exempt organizations division of the IRS, won’t answer questions about what she knew about the improper screening – or why she didn’t reveal it to Congress, according to a letter from her defense lawyer, William W. Taylor 3rd.
Lerner was scheduled to appear before the House Oversight committee Wednesday
[LA Times]Taylor, a criminal defense attorney from the Washington firm of Zuckerman Spaeder, said that the Department of Justice has launched a criminal investigation, and that the House committee has asked Lerner to explain why she provided “false or misleading information” to the committee four times last year.Boo frickin hoo, make her plead the Fifth for all to see.
Since Lerner won’t answer questions, Taylor asked that she be excused from appearing, saying that would “have no purpose other than to embarrass or burden her.” There was no immediate word whether the committee will grant her request.
Watch the dems try to turn this into a 'war on women' thingy like they did with Susan Rice's Benghazi clusterfruck on the Sunday talk shows.
As far as the DOJ conducting an investigation, yeah just like how well they did with the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case and Fast and Furious gun running.

Government Loses 556lbs Of Explosives
The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said Wednesday that it is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for stealing 559 pounds of explosives last month near Red Lodge.
The theft happened sometime in April when thieves broke into a U.S. Forest Service storage bunker about two miles south of Red Lodge, said Brad Beyersdorf, an ATF spokesman.
Items stolen included emulsion-type explosives, explosive cast boosters and detonating cord.
Pressure cookers not included.

In The Future Everyone Will be Extremists
An Army Reserve training poster lists various types of extremists. Including the usual, al-Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood whom the Obama administration called mostly secular.
Also included the world's 1.18 billion Catholics and of course Islamophobes.... those are people who have an irrational fear of having their head sloppily chopped off with a butcher knife.
Hot Air: This one earns the coveted Duke University triple facepalm, the highest honor we can award for self-beclowning. An Army Reserve training class attempted to instruct soldiers on the various extremist groups of the world, dutifully noting al-”Quaeda,” with with the US armed forces are at war, and Hamas, which the State Department lists as a terrorist organization. Both of those, however, come below a couple of extremist groups so fringe that only about 60 million Americans count themselves among their ranks:
One does have to be amused, however, at the last entry on the list — “Islamophobia”. That follows a half-dozen references to various Islamist groups, including one that the Obama administration is currently attempting to engage (the Muslim Brotherhood), and “Sunni Muslims” — without any other qualifiers. I imagine the Shi’ites appreciate that conclusion...

Presidential Limo AFU in Israel (Updated: WTF?)
t can withstand biochemical attacks and a barrage of gunfire but apparently not a drop of diesel fuel.Apparently the guy who pumps the gas was on furlough. Cause you know, only in the government to you need a qualified trained individual to pump gas.
President Barack Obama’s customized Cadillac limousine often referred to as “The Beast” was photographed on the back of a flat-bed hauler in Israel today. Israeli press is reporting someone mistakenly filled the vehicle with diesel fuel, which caused the breakdown.
Update: Jawa Report agents are always actively investigating these important issues.
The Presidential limo runs on Diesel fuel.
Among the truck-derived greasy bits may be the engine. It's been reported that the limo uses a 6.5L diesel V8 which got me thinking about whether it might be a Tier 2 Bin 5 compliant clean diesel. I contacted Cadillac spokesman David Caldwell who gave me the following response, "We're just not permitted to discuss that at all -- and in fact I don't even know the engine aspects of the car. So it's not the case that I'm just choosing not to tell you -- I don't know and would not be permitted to know."So its been rumored that it runs on Diesel, its been speculated it might run on biofuels as well.
But I went and looked some more.. GM tells GAS.org it does run on diesel fuel.
The most significant detail of Cadillac One (C1), from an alternative-fuels standpoint, is the limo’s 6.6L Duramax turbo-diesel V8 engine.I guess only the Juice know for sure.
If it did run on diesel fuel and someone put gas in it, well that's a whole other rods came through the block story. Unless there is some high tech gadget that says Oh no! Shut them all down!

LA Fugitive's Leftist Manifesto
Remember that after you read this, you need to go back to the Right Wing Extremists are Dangerous narrative, lest you find yourself on the wrong side of some fascist liberal's world view and get hurt.
SooperMexican: I’ve been following closely the news story about Chris Dorner, who is now suspected of murdering three people, including one police officer, and shooting another two police officers. He is targeting police and their families for what he says is a corrupt system that robbed him of his name and his life.I'll quote the first part of what SooperMexican found.
However, I started noticing that some of the details the media was talking about didn’t fit the released manifesto I’ve read everywhere. Especially interesting, is that KFI’s morning news regurgitator Bill Handel had mentioned some pro-Obama comments and anti-NRA sentiments in the manifesto.
... However, I was able to find a complete copy of the posting, from the website “Crime File News” – the details in it corroborate with the reading that Bill Handel gave on the KFI morning show today.
Pro Gun Control:Read the rest.
Who in there right mind needs a fucking silencer!!! who needs a freaking SBR AR15? No one. No more Virginia Tech, Columbine HS, Wisconsin temple, Aurora theatre, Portland malls, Tucson rally, Newtown Sandy Hook. Whether by executive order or thru a bi-partisan congress an assault weapons ban needs to be re-instituted. Period!!!
Mia Farrow said it best. “Gun control is no longer debatable, it’s not a conversation, its a moral mandate.”
Sen. Feinstein, you are doing the right thing in leading the re-institution of a national AWB. Never again should any public official state that their prayers and thoughts are with the family.
Hat Tip: Bryan Preston.
Update: From the complete copy of the posting linked above in the quotes text his list of "high value targets" starting with Whitey.
Those Caucasian officers who join South Bureau divisions.So pretty much everyone that's not him.
Those Black officers in supervisory ranks and pay grades...
Those Hispanic officers
Those lesbian officers
Those Asian officers
Those of you who "go along to get along"
Los Angeles officers guarding a "target" named in the posting shot and wounded multiple people in Torrance who were in a pickup but were not involved, authorities said. The extent of their injuries was not released. It's not clear if the target is a person or a location.
The Daily Breeze in Torrance also reports (http://bit.ly/YWhBLi) that there was another police shooting nearby involving another pickup truck, but the driver wasn't hurt.

California Über Alles: Majority of Your Labor Now Belongs to the State (Arbeit Macht Frei)
My buddy Professor Chaos and I, both native Californians who fled the once-great state with no plans on returning ... ever, were talking the other day when I mentioned a classic Dead Kennedy's song California Über Alles.
Chaos pointed out the irony of the song being directed at Governor Jerry Brown back in 1979. And who is currently presiding over California's decline? Yup, the same Jerry Brown.
If you've never heard the song, it's below with lyrics. It unites punk enthusiasts (me), hippie haters (Chaos), and pretty much every one else who thinks the nanny state is just fascism with a smile.
How bad is it in California under Der Fuerer Brown? This bad:
Thanks to passage of Proposition 30 last month, high-income Californians would pay the nation's highest marginal income tax rates -- nearly 52 percent -- if President Barack Obama and Congress fail to make a deal to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff," according to a new study.The story is wrong. Regardless of the so-called "fiscal cliff", President Obama supports raising taxes on the wealthiest. So, either way, the marginal tax rate on wealthy Californians will be above the 50% mark.
Just one more reason never to move back. Video below.

No Act of Kindness Goes Unpunished
Remember last week when the NYC police officer bought a barefoot homeless man boots?
After Officer Lawrence DePrimo knelt beside a barefoot man on a bitterly cold November night in Times Square, giving him a pair of boots, a photo of his random act of good will quickly took on a life of its ownStill Mr. Hillman expressed gratitude without revealing the location of how much crack he'd been able to barter the boots for.
...But what of the shoeless man?
His name is Jeffrey Hillman, and on Sunday night, he was once again wandering the streets — this time on the Upper West Side — with no shoes.
The $100 pair of boots that Officer DePrimo had bought for him at a Sketchers store on Nov. 14 were nowhere to be seen.
“Those shoes are hidden. They are worth a lot of money,” Mr. Hillman said in an interview on Broadway in the 70s. “I could lose my life.”

Where is Twinkie? Is He Safe? Is He Alright?
No, I couldn't have, he was delicious. I tasted it!
Hint to Bakers Union, when the company lays it all out there and then even the effing Teamsters agree to it. That's called a fucking clue!
You know who will really suffer from this, the children.
