I would guess the fraud by fortune tellers is a fraction of that swindled by the hocus pocus of dubious churches, and that likely is a fraction of those swindled on the Stock Market. That doesn't mean we should denounce these groups generally.

I would focus on the youthful victim/plaintiff, her trauma should be the focus. It's possible that she doesn't want this fight, and might be more traumatized by the bizarre antics of those technically adult on her behalf than she was by the original incident. It would be best if the focus shifted away from her specific case, if she doesn't want this sort of Drama.

This reveals why he didn't fight those ridiculous charges in court, charges that were easily defeated in later civil cases, even after the criminal convictions. He had a history that he didn't want revealed, that had nothing to do with the circus that brought him down. Bill Clinton, Clarence Thomas, and Donald Trump all did worse, but are supported by those that condemned Filner. His real crime was standing in the way of corrupt development, and listening to local concerns.

Mission Valley land grabbing is like pro sports, the players change, but the game remains the same. Now that the Chargers have left, we are told that MLS will play in San Diego, if we build a smaller stadium where fans won't have to look at empty seats. Time was, promoters tried to fill empty seats, now they want them bulldozed. Pay no attention to the 4000 proposed residential units behind the curtain.

Women don't get caught as often as men, but how much crime they do is a matter for speculation, because successful criminals deceive rather than bludgeon. Crime often goes undetected. The vast majority of stupid crime is perpetrated by men, but that's likely because of men's stupidity, and lack of deception. Women are just better at some things.

I hope no one believes that this scam has anything to do with improving fans experience attending games. It's stealing parkland for sleazy development, and ripping off the taxpayers for a stadium inferior to the one we have.

I know it's foolish to think of Banks generally as US taxpayers, but in fact, when they pay "fees", to government entities, they are taxpayers. No doubt the money will slush back in from the Government, point taken.

Our military returns to Iraq because we haven't learned from our mistakes, thanks to our deeply flawed world view. that imagines we can impose justice on other peoples. Blaming Bush and his henchmen won't fix that thinking, even though they deserve to be treated as they treated the prisoners in their control. I fear that Hillary Clinton, brilliant though she is, might blunder horribly, might even assist an Israeli invasion of Syria. Bill Clinton's policy led directly to the Iraq disaster. Hillary hasn't changed her thinking.

The rest are plainly cynical or completely insane. Bush doesn't have the anger that now destroys the Republican Party. He isn't a bigot, even if he is not a thinker. He was a disaster as President, but much of the fault should be shared by the nation as a whole. Those who claim to be deceived believed the impossible. We are ready to repeat our mistakes, because we blame the idiot leader, rather than the flaws in our outlook.

We can all agree on one point, George W. Bush remains the greatest mind in the Republican Party. The latest primaries remove all doubt.
