I think that most of us among the electorate knew that his presidency would be a relative disaster, but I am not sure how many among us expected the catastrophe our nation now faces. friendly-neighborhood-patriarch: hominishostilis: abstractandedgyname: siryouarebeingmocked: mississpithy: bogleech: notyourmoderate: angrybell: thinksquad: http://archive.is/5VvI5 Huffpo, everybody. Can someone tell me what high crime or misdemeanor Trump has committed that merits this? Or is the HuffPo just publishing outright fantasies? God dammit, I’m now in the position of defending Huffington. I didn’t want to be here. Okay, @angrybell … actually, @ literally everyone who reblogged this uncritically as a tacit endorsement and agreement. Such as @the-critical-feminist that I reblog this from.My first question has to be: are you serious? Don’t read that with a tone, don’t read that as an attack. That’s my first question: Are you asking a serious question about what high crimes or misdemeanors Trump has perpetrated? Are you asking a sincere question or is this the sort of rhetoric that doesn’t translate well into text? And, if you are actually asking this question, are ou going to hear the answer or are you going to immediately start concocting your counter-argument because you just know in your heart that anyone who disagrees with you must be wrong, so you start formulating a plan to prove them wrong before you actually hear what they have to say?Next: did you read the article that was posted in the link you responded to? Because the author of that article does a reasonable job of explaining their thought process behind the headline. Or did you lash out before you read the article? Okay, presuming that you did read the article in good faith, evaluate its points, perform the follow-up research to understand context, and still disagree with the central tenets and simply believe that the author’s reasoning does not hold up for whatever reasons you have chosen not to state, and you believe their source information is falsified for whatever reason you have chosen not to state, I will move on. After I have given you and yours every conceivable benefit of the doubt and every charitable assumption. Because if the article itself doesn’t convince you, there’s the fact that Donald Trump has broken literally every federal law against corruption and conflict of interest. Not one or two, not most, not all but a few. Literally every single law we have against corruption, from the Constitution to the informal guidelines circulated as a memo from the White House ethics scholars. He’s broken literally every one of those rules. He’s openly traded favors for money and favors for months now. Hell, that Chinese influence-peddler that paid him off for sixteen million dollars should have been enough to get him convicted of treason. Sharing code-word level classified information with a government on the opposite side of an ongoing military conflict isn’t *necessarily* treason, unless the information was part of a share program with an allied nation and wasn’t his to distribute. That’s aiding a foreign aggressor at the expense of a military ally, and that’s treason. Giving aid and comfort to enemies of the nation. Obstruction of justice is pretty clear-cut, that’s an impeachment, except that the justice in question is also a matter of national security, so that’s treason. Again. Defaming the former president? Misdemeanor, impeachable. The way he drags his heels nominating posts in Justice and State could be prosecuted as dereliction of duty. If he has tapes of Comey, he’s on the hook for contempt, if he doesn’t then he’s on the hook for witness tampering. Hell, deleting the covfefe tweet is destroying federal records, which is a misdemeanor, and impeachable. The man doesn’t go a week without bringing on an impeachable offense. Strictly speaking, every time he goes to Mar-A-Lago he’s committing grand larceny by fraud, because he’s taking millions of dollars of American funds for his own benefit, after promising not to do that. There are dozens, hundreds maybe, of impeachable offenses already in this 140 days, “high crimes and misdemeanors”. Actual counts of treason, punishable by death by hanging, is probably only five or six counts. Only five or six counts of high treason by our sitting president. His job does not put him above reproach. His job is to *be* above reproach. And he’s failing that job. Trump’s supporters probably believe he’s done nothing impeachable or treasonous because they spent eight years claiming on no grounds whatsoever that Obama was impeachable and treasonous, just because they didn’t like him. They now probably convince themselves that these facts about Trump are as fake as their Obama theories and they’ve ruined the gravity of these terms for themselves. “ His job does not put him above reproach. His job is to *be* above reproach.

You accuse others, preemptively, of not hearing the answer and pre-”concocting” a response, and yet you’re waffling on about shit around the one, sole, isolated thing that was indicated in the first place. This isn’t about ignoring context, this is about criticising one thing.

The specific criticism of the indicated quality is the advocation of Trump’s execution. That’s it. No context is needed to understand that this is what was said, especially since that which was said, which is being criticised, is explicit. No amount of, “So, click-bait subtitle that you don’t see until you’ve already clicked on the article link out of the way, here’s what I actually meant when I said I wanted this person tried and executed,” could excuse the use of that language, let alone actually believing in it.

You and what’s his face, James, fuckin ReasonAndEmpathy or whatever now, y’all keep saying “but what of the context?” when the criterion of criticism is isolated, atomic, specific, and/or explicit. No amount of context invalidates the very specific, singular words explicitly spoken. “Sure he called for Trump to be executed, but he explains himself.” Fucking and?

So this:


Are you asking a serious question about what high crimes or misdemeanors Trump has perpetrated?


Is a question of this:

Seems you missed the part that says “merits this”.


Next: did you read the article that was posted in the link you responded to? Because the author of that article does a reasonable job of explaining their thought process behind the headline. Or did you lash out before you read the article?

Fbi, Friends, and Post Office: To the thoughtful, but aggrieved, neighbor who left a note under my door written on t cover of my New Yorker magazine stating: he "You either leave a note to the mailman telling him to stop fitting your mail in my mailbox or I will keep your mail," First of all, Thank you very much for placing my mail under my door. That was truly neighborly of you Per your kind suggestion, I have left a note to the mail carrier asking them to please put my mail in my mailbox. I hope this instruction will suffice, but as you did not include your name or apartment number, I was unable to ask the carrier to avoid putting my mail in your mailbox specifically. If you would like me to to include this information in my note, kindly write your name and apartment number on this paper and I will gladly pass it along to our carrier. I have also called the post office alerting them to this problem. Further, Elaina, our super, with whom I have shared your note, has offered to speak with the carrier personally. I have taken every measure I can think of to prevent this egregious act from occurring again, including sharing your concern (and your note) with other friends and neighbors I am truly sorry for the grievous inconvenience this has caused you. (And, on a more selfish note, I would also like my own mail put in my own mailbox.). If the unthinkable should happen again, and the mail carrier should inadvertently put my mail in your mailbox, perhaps, instead of troubling yourself with the onerous task of delivering it directly to my door, you could just leave it on the ledge above the mailboxes as the rest of our neighbors do for one another Thank you again for neighborly thoughtfulness. It does, indeed, inspire reciprocity. C. Fay Apartment #39 P.S.: If this unfortunate event should re-occur, and you do feel compelled to keep my mail as you intimate in your note, I understand from my brother-in-law (who is in the FBI) that tampering knowingly with another's mail might constitute a federal offense. (I share this information with you in the same neighborly spirit implicit in your own missive.) Of course, pressing such a charge could prove problematic, as you have diffidently kept your identity anonymous. Therefore, my brother-in-law has offered to dust the mail you left under my door for fingerprints should it become necessary. I do hope it won't.

Birthday, Christmas, and Click: New York Man Arrested for Cutting Wires to Red Light Cameras After Exposing Government Revenue Generating Scheme BEN KELLER wecanalldobetter: thecheshirecass: untilstarsfall: nabyss: killbenedictcumberbatch: sambolic: westernsocietyfucked100years: cointelpro-plant: Man found the stoplight cameras were activated during yellow lights and decided to cut the wires of it. hero STOP SCROLLING!!! Please take a moment to read the article about what this man is doing, the criminals he is exposing, and the deaths of so many poor and middle class families at the hands of the greedy. Yellow lights with Xerox cameras were shortened from 5 seconds to 3 seconds in poor and middle class neighborhoods to surprise drivers and generate more revenue. Many deaths ensued. This story is already a couple months old, but there isn’t enough talk about it. Please signal boost this. http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2016/04/26/new-york-man-arrested-for-cutting-wires-to-red-light-cameras-after-exposing-government-revenue-generating-scheme/ even traffic lights are racist 😧😧😧😧 The gag is it was a Black man who invented the traffic light and now white supremacy is using it to kill us what in the fuck. Also notice this man looks DELIGHTED in his mugshot, probably because he knows it will help shine a light on the subject. This guy’s an actual American hero, using his white privilege for good.  Please read his story and I know y’all don’t click links so: A New York man known as the Red Light Robin Hood was arrested again this  month after cutting wires to red light cameras where yellow light duration  times were shortened by the city in order to generate more citations and  revenue. The shortened durations at the traffic lights generate $32 million for Suffolk  County, which is why the county allows the practice to continue despite their  own study showing they lead to an increase in accidents with injuries. PINAC’s Theresa Richard reported about Stephen Ruth back in February  after seeing videos he posted on Facebook that prove the lights near the  cameras trick drivers into citations. At that point, Ruth had already been arrested in August for using a painter’s  extension rod to point the cameras towards the sky. On April 11, he went a little further and cut wires to 18 cameras. “I cut the cable wires, making it useless. I’ve made it  dysfunctional, just like the whole red-light camera  program,” said Ruth during a local interview. “I did it in  order to save lives.” And after he cut the wires, he called the news to cover his act of civil  disobedience, which resulted in his arrest after police received pressure from  politicians. Ruth said police and sheriff deputies support him, because  they’re aware of the shortened yellow lights. Some may even testify on his behalf if his case goes to trial. When he was in  jail for his most recent arrest, a sheriff’s deputy even offered to bail him out. But after receiving attention from local residents and media, Ruth discovered  a government entity mounted a camera outside of his home on a telephone  pole just like the one LaVoy Finicum took down during the standoff with the  government at a National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. But Ruth doesn’t know exactly where it came from. “The only reason the government is so concerned about me is because I  proved that they shortened the yellow lights to generate revenue and killed a  lot of innocent people,” said Stephen Ruth just before he painted over the  camera with a painter’s extension pole. Ruth currently faces 22 years in prison for tampering of public property and  obstructing government administration, but relies on his faith and stated he’s  on a mission from God to save lives. Ruth said that a car tried to hit him head-on and narrowly missed his vehicle.  Upon talking to neighbors, they described a similar vehicle with similar  occupants staking out his house and lurking around his neighborhood. He said someone could be trying to kill him, although he said he could be  wrong. “The only way they can keep this from gaining national attention is to get rid of me,” he said. If you think Ruth may be paranoid, consider the case of John Lang, a traffic- light scam whistleblower in Fresno, California who posted on Facebook that  police were trying to kill him just days before he was found stabbed to death  in his burned down house. Police ruled his death a suicide. If Suffolk County’s contract with Xerox is any indication of what other cities’  contracts with Xerox look like, the problem extends much farther than Suffolk  County. So Ruth’s “paranoia” might not be paranoia at all. In Suffolk County, yellow lights at 50 intersections with cameras were shortened  in 2011 after state legislators approved the cameras to be installed in 2010. In  2012, 50 more cameras were installed at intersections, which increased revenue  by $17 million. The video below, shot by Ruth, shows the duration of a yellow light at an  intersection with no cameras to be five seconds compared to the duration of a  yellow light at an intersection with a camera to be three seconds. That two-second reduction has netted millions of extra dollars for the county  and Xerox, the publicly-owned company that contracts the cameras. Ruth pointed out some cameras that were put up have been taken down after  they fell short of daily contract-quota with Xerox to produce 25 citations, per  camera, between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., which costs Suffolk County $2,132 per  day, according to the Xerox contract with the county. Xerox collects $13 from Suffolk County for each ticket, which increases to $33  per ticket when a camera generates more than 90 tickets in a month. Ruth pointed out that the vast majority of cameras were placed in lower to  middle class neighborhoods. “I’m on 25A and Setauket and you can see that there’s no  cameras to be found. Lower class neighborhoods are  loaded with cameras. But if you drive through Setauket,  you won’t see any cameras. Why are they all over the lower  and middle class neighborhoods? That’s what we want to  know,” he stated in a video seen below. Another vexing problem for Ruth is the coverage the issue has gotten from local  news, specifically News12, which is owned by CableVision who provides the  internet service to the cameras at the lights. When victims of the lights went to News12 about the deaths of their family  members due to the shortened lights, News12 interviewed them, but never ran  the story. And while other local media outlets report from Ruth’s point of view  and most of the public’s, News12 has painted Ruth a criminal. When the news failed to investigate some of the deaths at intersections with  shortened lights, Ruth took his own camera to document the light-duration  times at the scene of the deaths. When he arrived, he recorded a light-duration  of three seconds at an intersection where it was previously five seconds. “I saw the crosses and thought I was in the right place.” However, when he determined he was actually at the wrong location, he went to  the correct location the following day and found the same thing, again – a light  shortened from five seconds to three where a person was killed. Ruth’s energy and persistence on social media and news media have gained the  yellow light issue local support and he’s spoken on behalf of victim’s families to  representatives urging them to discontinue the program. His supporters consist  of a variety of groups from judges to cops to just about everyone in Suffolk  County. Meanwhile, Ruth’s support seems to be growing everywhere but the U.S., where  it has remained mostly specific to Suffolk County.  He posted a screen shot on  his Facebook page of folks from England calling him a “hero” and saying they  “idolize” him. “I’m even getting messages from Australia,” Ruth told  PINAC. When asked if he was afraid of the possibility of jail  he said, “I’m willing to go to jail for doing what’s right.” Ruth said one of his hero’s is MLK, who he shares a birthday with on January 15. “You gotta love a guy like that. He was willing to go to jail to do what’s right.” “I’m just trying to save lives. I spend Christmases delivering flowers to the  cemetery, because nobody wants to work on Christmas. I get orders from all  around the world from people ordering flowers to put on graves. I take my son  and tell him to note the ages of the people who died fighting for our country.  And they come back to this?” So we asked what he’d like to see come from risking his own life and freedom to  save the lives of others and expose the traffic light scandal. “I want people to go to jail.” Ironically, at this point in time, Stephen Ruth is the only person facing jail time  for “crimes” related to the Suffolk County yellow light scandal.

Man found the stoplight cameras were activated during yellow lights and decided to cut the wires of it.
hero

STOP SCROLLING!!! Please take a moment to read the article about what this man is doing, the criminals he is exposing, and the deaths of so many poor and middle class families at the hands of the greedy. Yellow lights with Xerox cameras were shortened from 5 seconds to 3 seconds in poor and middle class neighborhoods to surprise drivers and generate more revenue. Many deaths ensued. This story is already a couple months old, but there isn’t enough talk about it. Please signal boost this.

even traffic lights are racist

😧😧😧😧

The gag is it was a Black man who invented the traffic light and now white supremacy is using it to kill us what in the fuck.


Also notice this man looks DELIGHTED in his mugshot, probably because he knows it will help shine a light on the subject.

This guy’s an actual American hero, using his white privilege for good. 
Please read his story and I know y’all don’t click links so:

A New York man known as the Red Light Robin Hood was arrested again this
 month after cutting wires to red light cameras where yellow light duration
 times were shortened by the city in order to generate more citations and 
revenue.

The shortened durations at the traffic lights generate $32 million for Suffolk 
County, which is why the county allows the practice to continue despite their
 own study showing they lead to an increase in accidents with injuries.

PINAC’s Theresa Richard reported about Stephen Ruth back in February
 after seeing videos he posted on Facebook that prove the lights near the 
cameras trick drivers into citations.

At that point, Ruth had already been arrested in August for using a painter’s
 extension rod to point the cameras towards the sky.

On April 11, he went a little further and cut wires to 18 cameras.

“I cut the cable wires, making it useless. I’ve made it
 dysfunctional, just like the whole red-light camera 
program,” said Ruth during a local interview. “I did it in 
order to save lives.”

And after he cut the wires, he called the news to cover his act of civil 
disobedience, which resulted in his arrest after police received pressure from
 politicians. Ruth said police and sheriff deputies support him, because 
they’re aware of the shortened yellow lights.

Some may even testify on his behalf if his case goes to trial. When he was in
 jail for his most recent arrest, a sheriff’s deputy even offered to bail him out.

But after receiving attention from local residents and media, Ruth discovered 
a government entity mounted a camera outside of his home on a telephone 
pole just like the one LaVoy Finicum took down during the standoff with the
 government at a National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon.

But Ruth doesn’t know exactly where it came from.

“The only reason the government is so concerned about me is because I 
proved that they shortened the yellow lights to generate revenue and killed a
 lot of innocent people,” said Stephen Ruth just before he painted over the 
camera with a painter’s extension pole.

Ruth currently faces 22 years in prison for tampering of public property and
 obstructing government administration, but relies on his faith and stated he’s
 on a mission from God to save lives.

Ruth said that a car tried to hit him head-on and narrowly missed his vehicle. 
Upon talking to neighbors, they described a similar vehicle with similar 
occupants staking out his house and lurking around his neighborhood.

He said someone could be trying to kill him, although he said he could be 
wrong.

“The only way they can keep this from gaining national attention is to get rid of me,” he said.

If you think Ruth may be paranoid, consider the case of John Lang, a traffic-
light scam whistleblower in Fresno, California who posted on Facebook that 
police were trying to kill him just days before he was found stabbed to death 
in his burned down house.

Police ruled his death a suicide.

If Suffolk County’s contract with Xerox is any indication of what other cities’ 
contracts with Xerox look like, the problem extends much farther than Suffolk 
County. So Ruth’s “paranoia” might not be paranoia at all.

In Suffolk County, yellow lights at 50 intersections with cameras were shortened 
in 2011 after state legislators approved the cameras to be installed in 2010. In 
2012, 50 more cameras were installed at intersections, which increased revenue 
by $17 million.

The video below, shot by Ruth, shows the duration of a yellow light at an 
intersection with no cameras to be five seconds compared to the duration of a 
yellow light at an intersection with a camera to be three seconds.

That two-second reduction has netted millions of extra dollars for the county 
and Xerox, the publicly-owned company that contracts the cameras.

Ruth pointed out some cameras that were put up have been taken down after 
they fell short of daily contract-quota with Xerox to produce 25 citations, per 
camera, between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., which costs Suffolk County $2,132 per 
day, according to the Xerox contract with the county.

Xerox collects $13 from Suffolk County for each ticket, which increases to $33 
per ticket when a camera generates more than 90 tickets in a month.

Ruth pointed out that the vast majority of cameras were placed in lower to 
middle class neighborhoods.

“I’m on 25A and Setauket and you can see that there’s no
 cameras to be found. Lower class neighborhoods are
 loaded with cameras. But if you drive through Setauket, 
you won’t see any cameras. Why are they all over the lower 
and middle class neighborhoods? That’s what we want to 
know,” he stated in a video seen below.

Another vexing problem for Ruth is the coverage the issue has gotten from local
 news, specifically News12, which is owned by CableVision who provides the 
internet service to the cameras at the lights.

When victims of the lights went to News12 about the deaths of their family 
members due to the shortened lights, News12 interviewed them, but never ran 
the story. And while other local media outlets report from Ruth’s point of view 
and most of the public’s, News12 has painted Ruth a criminal.

When the news failed to investigate some of the deaths at intersections with 
shortened lights, Ruth took his own camera to document the light-duration 
times at the scene of the deaths. When he arrived, he recorded a light-duration
 of three seconds at an intersection where it was previously five seconds.

“I saw the crosses and thought I was in the right place.”

However, when he determined he was actually at the wrong location, he went to 
the correct location the following day and found the same thing, again – a light 
shortened from five seconds to three where a person was killed.

Ruth’s energy and persistence on social media and news media have gained the
 yellow light issue local support and he’s spoken on behalf of victim’s families to 
representatives urging them to discontinue the program. His supporters consist
 of a variety of groups from judges to cops to just about everyone in Suffolk 
County.

Meanwhile, Ruth’s support seems to be growing everywhere but the U.S., where
 it has remained mostly specific to Suffolk County.  He posted a screen shot on 
his Facebook page of folks from England calling him a “hero” and saying they 
“idolize” him.

“I’m even getting messages from Australia,” Ruth told 
PINAC. When asked if he was afraid of the possibility of jail 
he said, “I’m willing to go to jail for doing what’s right.”

Ruth said one of his hero’s is MLK, who he shares a birthday with on January 15.

“You gotta love a guy like that. He was willing to go to jail to do what’s right.”
“I’m just trying to save lives. I spend Christmases delivering flowers to the 
cemetery, because nobody wants to work on Christmas. I get orders from all 
around the world from people ordering flowers to put on graves. I take my son 
and tell him to note the ages of the people who died fighting for our country. 
And they come back to this?”

So we asked what he’d like to see come from risking his own life and freedom to
 save the lives of others and expose the traffic light scandal.

“I want people to go to jail.”

Ironically, at this point in time, Stephen Ruth is the only person facing jail time 
for “crimes” related to the Suffolk County yellow light scandal.
