    DEEP BRAIN DIARY Minnesota Supreme Court Sides with Franken
    If he really is waiting to be ordered then he has lost whatever little respect I still had for him. That is being childish on his part !!!

    Update : he said "waiting for green light" so I will restore my respect for him. I bet he was worried, right !!! LOL

    EDIT: Actually, nevermind. I found a transcript of it.

    So your assertions are a bit disingenuous, wouldn't you say? He said that he was following the direction of the court, and was waiting for the green light. You make it sound as if he's refusing to do so unless the court orders him to do so.
    Yup "waiting for the green light" is a light year away from "being ordered to". I fell for reports of the later.

    6. You must quote content from the sourced article but do not quote the entire news article. Quote the opening paragraph or two and stop there. Readers can peruse the full article via the required link.

    8. The OP must include personal author commentary about the cited news story and why this news story merits attention. This commentary should be at least a small paragraph (minimum of 4 sentences) in length.

    5a. Your citation link must point to a bona-fide news source. Personal websites, message boards, a video sequence, and web blogs are disallowed.

    1. All threads started in the *Breaking News* (*BN*) forum must adhere to the Rules and Guidelines as stipulated below. Be advised that Infraction Points may be awarded for failure to adhere to these Rules and Guidelines.

    Hey Jerry... you'd make a most excellent mod.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Maybe people should earn a place in a mod-controlled social group to be able to post BN thread.

    I mean, if you just don't care about the rules at all, why should they let you make a thread at all?

    Franken is not the first, nor will he be the last. The political scene is full of idiots. But he won, and this should have been over a long time ago.

    Coleman should just find another career after losing to a comedian and a dead guy.

    And to think it all could have easily been avoided if you had read the rules before posting.
