On today's bill, it was all about a new rule that had not gone into effect yet: It said that consumers can't sign away their right to be part of a class action lawsuit. They have to participate in arbitration if it is in the contract fine print. Which has been true for a long time.

But if arbitration doesn't work out you can always turn up at the company share holder meeting and start shooting executives. You deny justice in court, and it will end up on the street. People who feel that they have been screwed over enough by some company are pretty good at getting their own justice.

There are actually a lot of Republican ideas that have this ultimate response, and they are silly if they don't consider them. For example, you take away 23 million people's health insurance and there will be an unending stream of grieving fathers coming to Washington or even your hometown office to kill you.

(This is not a threat: I have no kids and will do fine no matter what they do. It's an observation.)

You really gotta admire the self assuredness of that guy, to go without a shirt when you look like that.

Manafort, Gates surrender to Mueller, source says - CNN. Nothing surprising here, except the scope of the tax fraud. I just heard part of the indictment read on air. Money laundering to the tune of tens of millions, $75 million in undisclosed income.

Richard Gates may prove the more important figure here. He was Manafort's Deputy, but, more importantly, was still working for Trump after Manafort was fired. He headed his Super PAC until March of this year, and was part of the transition team. Leverage and knowledge are a potent combination.
