    Can't unring the bell....

    One of the things, one of many, that infuriated me in criminal trials was attorneys asking absurd questions with the opposing attorney leaping to his feet to object. The objection is sustained, the judge orders the jury to disregard the question, and the attorney posing the question smirks because he was taught in law school, "You can't unring the bell." Once the jury has heard your ridiculous comment which the judge orders them to disregard...they can't.

    In fact, it would often be better to let the asshole's question stand and leave it to the witness to destroy the question. The attorney knows full well there will be an objection, it will be sustained, and the bell will never be "unrung".

    Today we see the same thing outside the courtroom. On social media, in the mainstream media, on the political stage ridiculous, ludicrous, outrageous statements are made that can never be "unrung" but if a correction is ever made these stalwarts wait till the news cycle has ended and moved on and then, on the back page or on Sunday afternoon, make a half-assed correction. It's something the NYT is famous for. CNN is so corrupt they never bother.

    We see bells being rung now with "alleged" and "anonymous" writ large concerning Rep. Gaetz. They can never be unrung. For four years we had bells concerning President Trump that can't be unrung. Even today, Rep. Adam Schiff has never been required to produce his "hard evidence" of Trump collusion with Russia and the media has never called him or Rep. Eric Swalwell to task for lying.

    Disgusting.

    Us scientists have been used to that kind of thing, for hundreds of years now.

    This is precisely why we have a scientific method, and why we teach it to our children.

    Now that it has been exposed that the GA law does noting what the Lying dog faced pony soldier says, can MLB step back and say they made a mistake? Nope, they are liberals they never make mistakes. Can Delta now go back to before the bill was signed to when they supported the bill? They could, but they won't. COKE? Anyone drinking Coke doesn't deserve to live in America.

    I had a coke last week. I don't feel like I don't deserve to be here.

    I haven't had a Coke since I was about 10. Never cared for sodas of any kind.

    I gotta have my Pepsi Max, or Pepsi Zero (0) or whatever they call it nowadays. Yeah, I'm sorry, I won't stop using their product when they do stupid stuff like join in NFL protests, etc. I don't do coffee, alcohol, cigs, or cavort with wild wimmins, so I gotta have one vice .. oh, besides that Tourette thingy. Best not be near me when I smash my thumb. Even sailors shrink.

    Subhuman filth is what they are.
