Is it a good idea for Jeff Session to testify about Russia? AG Sessions takes the stand Tuesday (today) at a public hearing before e Senate Intelligence Committee, following James Comey’s hearing last week. It will be all about Russia, even though he recused himself on cases involving Russia. And, Sessions is under growing pressure to explain his influence in the firing of Comey… Why do you suppose Pres Trump is allowing this? Why doesn’t Trump act like this ordeal is contained? What, do you suppose, is the strategy here?
Murder by Texting: The trial of a 20-year old woman in Massachusetts has begun. She allegedly texted her boyfriend urging him to kill himself, and he finally did so by inhaling carbon monoxide after she gave him instructions as to just how to do it. Should words that encourage someone to commit suicide be criminalized? If so, which words? How many words?
Interview: Lawrence Schonbrun, California Based Attorney, Executive Director of California-Based Class Action Watch. Topic: Has “Fake News” Spread to the Judiciary?
Mark Zuckerberg is a fan of a universal basic income provided by the government. He says the present generation has an obligation to determine how a new “social contract” should be defined which would provide “equality for everyone.” He believes no one should worry about paying the basic bills of living so that “everyone has a cushion to try new ideas.” Do you think this idea of a social contract is part of the problem that serves to release people of personal responsibility for their own lives? What about depriving them of challenges to produce? BTW, this concept of a universal basic income has been around for years, but thus far has not been implemented. Is now the time to implement this idea, so that we don’t experience basic stresses associated with living? If so, how would a basic income be funded?
