No matter where you went. I'd rather sleep well at night. And have a huge, hilarious fun funeral where everyone shares great stories and tells the survivors how much good was done, and how much fun was had.

The Neidermeyers get killed by their own troops in 'Nam. Or they last a little longer and do horrible shit and profit from it and then someday it all blows up. Fuck 'em.

But man, you have a way with words too.

Have a great weekend!

He is a classmate and a world class a-hole

He has been grifting his entire adult life. I know I have shared this before but he was in ROTC for one year at ND then dropped. Admittedly, this was allowed at the time with no strings attached. What was loathsome about it though was he basically told other cadets he never had any intention of doing more than one year so it didn't matter that he could barely fit into his uniform by second semester. He didn't show up to mandatory workouts for those over body fat, basically made no effort whatsoever. I guess he was too busy working on his Student Government career.

To make matters worse on the lobbying grift, he owns a farm in Central Virginia so probably has played the system to pay zero taxes annually.

Did Trump Pardon himself? And is there such a thing as a

secret pardon? I heard this was a thing but have no idea.

Haven't kept up with this at all.


No and I really doubt it

by CK08, Friday, January 22, 2021, 11:23 @ Grantland

How would a secret pardon even work? There has to be some sort of paper trail, so it would be impossible to keep secret.

And Trump decided not to pardon himself after being informed that it could be considered an admission of liability in a civil case against him.


There were rumors that not all are revealed

I forget the network but they mentioned that Trump could issue/sign a pardon but not publicly release the information until later.

I have no idea if that's true, but I heard the same as the other poster.


They put the wrong dates on a number of them.

I seriously doubt that even if they wanted to do a "secret pardon" they could pull it off. Biden's JD would leak it before the ink was dry.

Sometimes I rhyme slow sometimes I rhyme quick.

end. And the Bannon pardon pushed the envelope as it was.

I agree on the supposed secret pardons. Not a chance.

The lack of pardons was pretty funny, too, when all kinds of people who were expecting them got bupkes.

Here's one of my favorites:



by Domer99, John Wesley Powell's Expedition Island, Friday, January 22, 2021, 13:38 @ Jack

I think the only reason for that was due to pure laziness. My guess is if the Trump administration would have been more focused and less distracted (specifically about the election results) he would have been more ambitious in soliciting more $encouragement$ to grant pardons.

It's gotta be a write off. There is no way.
