Surprising Results

So the Supreme Court yesterday issued a ruling that says you can pick up an immigrant, illegal OR LEGAL, like one with a green card, years after a conviction for some offenses and hold them indefinitely. LINK

This isn't just illegal immigrants. In fact the two people centered in the case are:

The plaintiffs included two legal US residents involved in separate lawsuits filed in 2013, a Cambodian immigrant named Mony Preap convicted of marijuana possession and a Palestinian immigrant named Bassam Yusuf Khoury convicted of attempting to manufacture a controlled substance.

I think it is weird.  They are legal immigrants, and Monty Preap was convicted of marijuana possession, which isn't even a crime now. But the government can forget about it for years, then a new President comes in and they can round up anyone they want and hold them without trial or recourse for years.

So watch your ass Alex, you Irish green-card holder. You too Joc, don't run any red lights. You're next!

What is too much Taylor Swift

 This much ... when the singer is used to send a message about POSSIBLE future problems?
