Prevarication Du Jour


I’ve lost track of the number of barefaced lies the Cabin Boy™ has been caught telling.Cheddar201602070313ZHere’s how he describes the exhibit containing the email he’s referring to in his original Complaint for LOLsuit VI: The Undiscovered Krendler—ECF 1 Ex12—and here’s the address block from the email as shown in both Exhibit 12 of the Complaint and Exhibit 4 of the Proposed Amended Complaint.ECF 1 EX12-EmailAs I’ve said before, Bill Schmalfeldt is a liar and not a very good one.

Here’s the hourly forecast through midnight Saturday for my zip code.Forecast201601220000U

Carroll County Government offices will close at 3 pm Friday, and schools will close three hours early. The County Emergency Operations Center will activate at Level II at 6 pm tomorrow evening. That means the Health Department, Dept. of Citizen Services, Dept. of Social Services, American Red Cross, and RACES will be represented at the EOC along with the usual staffing from Dept. of Public Works, the Volunteer Fire Companies, and the Sheriff’s Office. My son and I are amateur radio operators and members of the local ARES/RACES organization. We may be called out to provide backup communications.

All that and a couple feet of global warming to shovel.

Prevarication Du Jour


NQ201601212145ZNo, I don’t hate the First Amendment. I believe that prior restraint on publication generally is prohibited by the First Amendment, and the Supreme Court agrees with me. See New York Times v. United States, 403 U.S. 713 (1971), also known as The Pentagon Papers Case.

However, I do believe that it is possible for someone to do something that can result in the loss of some or almost all of his rights. For example, a felony conviction will put an end to a person’s Second Amendment right to own a modern firearm. A jail sentence ends someone’s right to travel as he pleases. Thus, it may be that a finding by a court that one has used his speech to violate the rights of another can cause a loss of some of the violator’s First Amendment rights. IANAL, and I haven’t read much case law in the area, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find that the Illinois stalking no contact order law is valid.
