    Well... There you go then..

    Judge Weston.... and may I just say that was Judge Judy.... slaps your hands and stuff gets sorted. I'll assume that one was for minimal lawyer cost? ? ?

    ITMT I notice McMaster has not credited my account for 'Public Toilet Blow Job Services in Plastic' for the last four services rendered. Sure, his defense will be I did not swallow. Like as if I am still waiting for delivery from Mr Floppies Floppy One.

    slippery slope

    Wonder if they can have the A.G. jailed for uttering threats. Isn't that just terrorism? Waterboard him!

    McMaster, and his threats

    What I would not pay for a picture of him with wearing a dog muzzle.

    Graphics people, can someone provide the rest of the world with some amusement?

    McMaster is your typical @$$hole politician who is out to make it look like he is "tough on crime" in his bid for the Governor's seat. He needs to learn the limits of his authority. If he is ultimately slapped down; then his punishment ought to be 10 whacks with a "billy club" (aka 'nightstick' in some circles) across his fingers. Then he will get the message (painfully, I hope).

    The next thing that South Carolinians can do is to vote his @$$ out of office.

    McMaster's Threats..

    Interesting that he's threatening to go after craigslist for their erotic services ads, but isn't saying a word about those same type of ads in the newspapers in SC... Oh, wait, he might want the endorsement of those very same newspapers if he makes that rumored run for guv'nor next year... He might have a problem getting those endorsements if he's cost the newspapers thousands of dollars in legal fees to defend against his (McMaster's) accusations...Different standards if someone can't help you I guess...

    Paris, 'cause she doesn't need any newspaper endorsements, even from SC.

    IANAL - and I don't really understand what this means
