The Justice Department is changing its sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone, overruling career prosecutors who requested in a court filing Monday that the former Trump adviser serve 7–9 years in prison.
The downgraded sentencing recommendation is sure to prompt allegations of political interference. In a possible sign of the coming fallout, former Mueller prosecutors Aaron Zelinsky, Jonathan Kravis, Adam Jed, and Michael Marando have withdrawn from the Stone case. Zelinsky and Kravis resigned from their positions as special assistant U.S. attorney and assistant U.S. attorney in D.C., respectively.

If someone tries to murder/rape someone and they are stopped, that person still had full intent to commit the act, therefore, (in my opinion) making it just as bad from a justice/karma stand point.

I came across a tweet today saying that "die in hell" is a sentence to you can use to buy shoes in Germany.
And it's true because "die in hell" in German is something equally to "the ones in the light color" in English. I found that pretty interesting because as a native German speaker I have never thought about that phrase that way although I probably have used it numerous times.
Just a funny thing that I saw and thought I could post it here.
Mind: It's not a translation, It's the way that a Polish native speaker would write down the sentence in question from hearing it 😀
"John made his way to a tavern through the dark forest, only to find out that he forgot the money".
That's how it looks like when written in Polish script:
"Dżon mejd his łej tu a tawern fru de dark forest, only tu faind ałt dat hi forgot de many".
It is as simple as watching a movie where the subtitles appear before the person speaks. You know what is about to be said, might as well hurry up the process. Frustrating.
"Next week, our Tech Lead Moah will be posting a dev diary giving an update on performance improvements planned for the 2.6 "Verne" update."
Due to many reasons (none of which I find as valid excuses, but it's out of my hands), I did not learn to speak my mother's native tongue (Lishan Didan, a modern dialect of Aramaic) fluently as a child. A few years back, I became old enough to reason out that hey, my mother's native language is a dying language, and if I don't learn it while I still can, it could end in my generation.
And so I learned as best I could. My grandmother has been an incredible resource, because she doesn't know English very well at all, and it forced me to speak in Aramaic with her.
After a few years, I'm finally able to have basic conversations without stumbling over my words. And since there was literally only one "dictionary" I could find, my learning how to speak is almost exclusively through my grandmother (my other relatives near me who speak it also know English, and we revert to English automatically even when trying because it's just easier).
This gives me so much hope I'll be successful and... keep reading on reddit ➡
Only read if you have a strong stomach, it’s fucking foul.
I was walking down to the local park with my kid and there was a cart being set up.
Usually I just say good morning and get on with my day, but one of the witnesses started talking to me and said "wouldn't it be nice for your daughter to grow up in a world without violence or fear".
I just stopped, and said "yeah - I was raised a Jehovah's Witness, and am raising her in world without fear of Jehovah". Didn't say I was apostate, didn't say I was exJW or df'd.
I just said I hope they enjoy the rest of their day and moved on.
The cart was swiftly dismantled and they moved to the other end of the park.
We’re told to hook the reader in the first sentence but not every book I’ve read does so. Sometimes some books don’t have a hook sentence or paragraph or chapter which makes me wonder how anyone could even continue reading. With that being said, how much of a book will you read until you deem it boring or a waste of time and put it back on the shelf?
This is a developing story and the post will be updated as news breaks.
###What the heck happened today:
Trump tweeted early Tuesday, calling the initial sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone "disgraceful" and a "miscarriage of justice." Stone was convicted on seven counts, including witness tampering and lying to investigators, related to his work for the Trump campaign. The initial recommendation was 7.5-9 years in prison.
Hours later, the DOJ backpedaled on the sentencing recommendation, overruling the prosecutors and committing to a lighter sentence recommendation
All four prosecutors resigned from Roger Stone's case: Aaron Zelinsky, Jonathan Kravis, Adam Jed, and Michael Marando. Kravis resigned from the department entirely.

Every time my stupid brain convinces to talk & socialize i immediately regret saying sentence after sentence. Each one dumber than the other, i somehow manage to make 5 cringy expressions both verbally and physically in a span of a minute talking to someone.
Aaaaand of course i never learn, i keep not shutting the fuck up. I need to stop trying and focus on something else i’m better at. Socializing is the bottom of the barrel for me.
Edit: surpise surpise reading the comments & socializing in chatrooms actually improved my mood. Yeah i was kinda dramatic and raw but i’m better now. I’ll try to look back on this post as much as i can. One good encounter can really lift up your mood <3
It really is. I saw on Reddit, this girl was being fined, gave the judge the middle finger and got her fine doubled. I just heard a story where this dude was going to jail for three days, said something like, "that is fucking bullshit!" and the judge increased his sentence.

#1) Current slumps do not imply an inability to recover and perform in the future
This isn't even the first time this season a slump like this has happened. We went 0-4 between Jan 14th - Jan 20th, or as everyone here might remember it, the 'oh god oh fuck what is going on with houston sports' week. What happened afterwards? We hit the end of January ok with 4-2 and then tore it the fuck up in Feb to go 9-2 in that month. Over this period we beat:
Also assorted blowouts vs. other, weaker teams (Grizzlies by 28, Warriors by 30)
Our 2 Feb. losses were that miracle buzzer beater and a loss to the Suns getting hot, who also just stomped the Bucks, in case it doesn't make it obvious they can outshoot any team on any given night
Bottom line: Losing games to weak teams, even looking like shit against weak teams, does not somehow mean we will never recover. Clearly based on who we've beaten and how we looked in Feb, the system is... keep reading on reddit ➡
