George Zimmerman should be sent to Gitmo, for all of our benefit.

Do You Have A Right to Remain Silent? Thoughts on the “Sleeper” Criminal Procedure Case of the Term, Salinas v. Texas
This morning the Supreme Court decided a very important criminal procedure case, Salinas v. Texas, by a 5-4 vote. I’m guessing that you haven’t heard of Salinas. And it probably won’t get much attention in the press. But it should: Salinas is likely to have a significant impact on police practices. And it’s a fascinating case for legal nerds, too
SCOUTS has now held that if you don't answer police questions your behavior in not answering questions can be used against you. Basically, the right to remain silent can still be incriminating. Yay.

Bowe Bergdahl to be charged with desertion and other crimes

Link
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who was recovered in Afghanistan last spring after five years in captivity, faces charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, according to his lawyer.

Eugene Fidell, Bergdahl’s attorney, told The Washington Post that his client was handed a charge sheet on Tuesday. Army officials announced they will provide an update in his case at 3:30 p.m. at Fort Bragg, N.C., but declined to discuss new developments ahead of the news conference.

Ted Cruz signed his family up for Obamacare.

Image
Rubio, Paul, and also Paul Ryan (among many others) signed up for the exchanges
Cruz said Tuesday that he and his family will sign up for health insurance through the exchanges created by Obamacare, prompting plenty of ridicule from Democrats looking to paint Cruz—a staunch opponent of the health care law—as a hypocrite.

But Cruz isn't the only 2016 contender to turn to the exchanges. Sen. Rand Paul signed up when the marketplaces first opened. "It made me an unhappy person," he said at the time.

Sen. Marco Rubio also signed up for coverage through Obamacare's exchange. So did Rep. Paul Ryan. In fact, most members of Congress—yes, including the Republicans who have vowed and voted so many times to repeal the Affordable Care Act—use the exchanges.

Not really. I'm too crunchy con for his particular brand.

I'm no fan of the law, but I do find this deeply entertaining. Republicans challenged Democrats on the exchanges, saying "If you think they're going to be so great, why is Congress being exempted?" So Dems said, "You're right. No exemption for Congress." To which Republicans said, "****!" and now they (pretty much) all have to buy insurance through the exchanges.

The U.S. is helping coordinate Egyptian, Gulf States, and Saudi Arabian airstrikes against the Houthi rebels in Yemen, who are Iranian backed while assisting the Iranians in bombing ISIS in Syria and Iraq who are receiving money from the Gulf States.

This all seems sub-optimal.
