    I blame hippies and the feminization of men. Thank God my son’s school and Fairfax and loudoun counties are strong.

    God help us if some fake sport like soccer takes its place. (And yes for I say that tongue in cheek I understand many believe soccer is real. )

    Soccer was the only sport I played. Never liked it much even back then.

    I played soccer one year but was frustrated by the lack of body checking and hitting in high school. The scoring patterns simulated a year of Friday nights getting cock blocked.

    Interesting legal tidbit that was introduced by Dershowitz on CNN no less - which of course left the panel very sour faced —- According to Dershowitz - campaign finance laws allow a candidate to contribute to his campaign without limit.

    So - if Cohen said that Trump told him to make the payment and Cohen acted as his attorney - representing Trump then any payment is legal. Period. So in Cohen’s scenario - if he is telling the truth — then Trump cannot be guilty.

    Now - if Cohen made the payment without Trump knowing —- then Cohen is breaking campaign laws by making a donation above and beyond the limit. Which would only make Cohen guilty and not Trump.

    So a catch 22 - in either case Trump is in the clear.

    Dershowitz’s statement are backed up by recent precedent in the Edwards case and the findings and ruling by the FEC.

    Now that is YUUUGE.

    Haven 't always agreed with him, but he wanted to work together in politics for the common good. Not the reason we ended up with Trump and likely horrified by him - bless you sir.
