Nazis, Transsexuals, and Socialists - Oh My!

The 2016 election reminds me of the cliché Chinese curse — "may you live in interesting times." Did it have to be this interesting?
So it has come to this: The front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, at a campaign rally Saturday in Orlando, leading supporters in what looked very much like a fascist salute. “Can I have a pledge? A swearing?” Trump asked, raising his right hand and directing his followers to do the same. He then led them in pledging allegiance — not to the flag but to Trump, for which they stand and for whom they vowed to vote.
And then you have this dumb woman. And let me stand by calling her dumb in advance of any objections. A clean-cut, butch homosexual like myself can easily walk in conservative circles like a stealth fighter flies over the skies of the Middle East. And from my stealth missions into conservative opposition strongholds I can report to Ms. Jenner that she's more likely to get a brick to the head than equality from some of these people. 
“Number 1, if we don’t have a country, we don’t have trans issues,” she told Ennis. “We need jobs. We need a vibrant economy. I want every trans person to have a job. With $19 trillion in debt and it keeps going up, we’re spending money we don’t have. Eventually, it’s going to end. And I don’t want to see that. Socialism did not build this country. Capitalism did. Free enterprise. The people built it. And they need to be given the opportunity to build it back up.”
In another exchange, Jenner went even further.
“You’re going to be Ted Cruz’s trans ambassador?” Ennis said.
Jenner: “Yes, trans ambassador to the president of the United States, so we can say, ‘Ted, love what you’re doing but here’s what’s going on.’”
And then there is this.

Trump, you've been Berned.

Help us Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're our only hope.

It only gets more interesting from here folks!


  1. Of course, famously, the Nazis changed the oath in Germany in the run up to the war from a general oath to protect and serve the country to a personal oath to the Fuhrer, in part to quell growing dissent and determine who the "undesirables" were.

    Not that there are any lessons to be learned from that.

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
