  Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.   

Anything else?

Trump re-tweeted a suggestion that Biden is a pedophile.

Twitter claims that it is not a violation of the standards, but with no explanation.

Hey, Ward? You working for Twitter, now?!

Lancaster protesters held on whopping $1 million bail each after alleged riots

A Pennsylvania judge threw the book at several protesters setting their bail at $1 million each for allegedly rioting in the wake of the police shooting of a knife-wielding Lancaster man.

Lancaster police nabbed a dozen people and one juvenile for staging the riots around 3 a.m. Monday in clashes that culminated in police deploying tear gas at the crowd.


If only they'd stayed home.

In the old NYT forums,  I conducted a series of lectures about the evils of illicit drugs.
One man who had 5 degrees and was a big fan of marijuana was not impressed...he got rooolly angry.  :)

And yes,  I know Ricardo Montalban also said it near the end of Star Trek II.   And there be many who don't know he was quoting Melville.
