Ron’s razor, a political litmus test

Share

I have a devised a political litmus test, I call it Ron's Razor, and you might find it useful in cutting through all the bullshit. It is this:

—- If one's joy, happiness or success depend on causing suffering among weaker persons, that one is an asshole. —-

Dip Jeff Sessions, Jim Tomes or Larry Bucshon in that, and see, if they turn red.

AS A BONUS, HERE ARE SOME OF THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF …………..

US Attorney General  Jeff Sessions

Jeff Sessions is the new Dick Cheney. BESIDES pushing the rudderless Trump to kill DACA, Sessions has ALSO :

1. Declared federal war on states with legal cannabis
2.Directed federal prosecutors to pursue the stiffest possible charge in every single criminal case — potentially triggering draconian mandatory minimum sentences the Obama administration tried to avoid on fairness grounds for non-violent offenders.
3.Withdrawn an Obama administration directive offering protections for transgender students who wanted to use bathrooms corresponding to their gender identity.
4.Reversed an Obama DOJ order that the federal Bureau of Prisons back off new deals with private facilities. "I direct the Bureau to return to its previous approach," Sessions said in a memo citing concerns that the "future needs of the federal correctional system" would be "impaired.
5.Launched a broad-based effort to reduce federal oversight of local police departments, like those put under increased scrutiny following investigations into alleged abuses. The deputy attorney general and associate attorney general were ordered to review lots of things, including all "contemplated consent decrees."
6.In a move criticized by voting rights advocates, asked state election officials in June to lay out their processes for purging voter rolls of individuals who have become ineligible due to, among other reasons, "death or change of residence."
7.Put in place a policy that could pave the way for an increase in a certain kind of civil asset forfeiture, a controversial practice — in this case a joint federal, state and local version that some departments were accused of using to get around state law — that allows police to seize money or property from suspects who haven't been convicted of a crime. (The DOJ says it has put new safeguards in place to prevent abuse.)
