The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Crying Treason

For John, BLUFI think Senator Rand Paul has had enough of this "Treason Talk".  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From Wikipedia we have a discussion of Treason in the United States, and in some of the states, including the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.


Definition:  In Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution, treason is specifically limited to levying war against the US, or adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.  Conviction requires two witnesses or a confession in open court.

Penalty:  U.S. Code Title 18: Death, or not less than 5 years imprisonment and not more than life imprisonment without the possibility of parole (minimum fine of $10,000, if not sentenced to death).

And at a more local level:

Penalty:  Life imprisonment with the possibility of parole after serving not less than 15 years and not more than 25 years.

New York apparently has no Treason law.

So, the question is, does anyone crying "Treason" against President Trump:

  • Understand what Treason is?
  • Understand what a serious accusation it is?
  • Know the difference between Treason and a policy difference?
  • Know the difference between Treason and ignorance or incompetence?
  • Understand that if there is Treason—real Treason—the officer holder needs to be removed immediately?
  • Understand that those who know of acts of Treason and have not immediately gone public are guilty of Treason?  (This would apply to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.)
  • Understand that hurling accusations of Treason are just helping Russian President Vladimir Putin sew discontent within the United States?
  • Understand that if they are just being hyperbolic it will come back to bite them?  (Probably in November.)
