You know that's seriously illegal right? So not only would that not be admissible as evidence your friend could end up being criminally charged under The Interception of Communications Act and can be sued under The Harmful Access by Computer Act . That's basically mail tampering, which is a federal offense. You can see jail time for that as it's a major felony. Not to mention she'd lose her kids without question. Tell her to be smart and talk to a lawyer first. A consultation won't cost her anything.

Why do you care?

Unfortunately, that would block access to emergency services. Say some crazy guy is stalking you, or road raging, or what if you spot a drunk driver, or if you have a medical issue, you need to be able to dial 911 or someone for assistance. Not sure if they would be able to differentiate text vs. voice usage.

Smartphone texting is the bane of every cyclist.

I avoid riding on non-neighborhood streets as much as I can. Even without cell-phones distracting them, a lot of people do not recognize bikes as valid street traffic. Neighborhoods aren't great either, but the speeds tend to be slower and there are plenty of driveways and sidewalks to escape onto.

It's pretty obvious when a person is texting - head looking down, long pauses between stops, and swerving in the lane and often outside of a lane. I'm surprised the police overlook it so much. They might be overwhelmed. Perhaps there will be a technology that recognizes the behavior and takes a photo, monitors, and/or alerts the nearest police officer.

Can Trump fire Mueller or is the story all rumor and spin?

I must admit I'm beginning to dislike even watching the news, other than to keep up to date on what my California politicians are saying or doing.

When Comey vindicated Trump on being right on what was said to him - not being under investigation (after the news repeatedly had stated the opposite) - I'm trusting the mainstream news far less than I have in the past - and that sense of mistrust has been escalating since the total debacle on the election polling results.

Meanwhile, while all eyes are one Comey, in the Senate McConnell is trying to ram through the AHCA. Two days for debate then vote. 25 million fewer will have health insurance per the CBO. Those people will still go to the ER though and those costs passed on to consumers like us.
Well, I'd say the AHCA is highly likely to screw me, seeing as I am currently getting a substantial subsidy. Here's to hoping the Ds manage to put it off somehow...

Go west!

You're clearly a smurf as demonstrated by the lack of proper punctuation and use of small case letters.

The question is ... who?

I suppose Blue knows. Inquisitive

Bob, why are you even bothering? What do you think is actually going to happen? The GOP will finally come to their senses and impeach him? The American public will rise up and cast him down? You really don't seem to understand your own country at all.

Because .. Something I don't except a non-US citizen to understand. It's a programming that's flashed into our brain's ROM BIOS during early childhood.

Oh, they can -- but the GOP controlled House won't. As I have said previously, barring a legally created recording of Trump admitting to a criminal offense, he will not be impeached.

Watch McCain's questioning, at minimum. And, you'll be like, "What the ..." Reminded me of when one of my grandparents who started to develop Alzheimer's disease.

Possibly interesting, but ultimately unimportant. Barring a surprising revelation from Comey or another source I'm not expecting much to happen. Trump is probably guilty of obstruction of justice, but not so blatantly that he'll get impeached by the GOP controlled House.

The question is can the president constitutionally be obstructive? He's the top dog and according to experts he can initiate, stop, or block any investigation -- even Comey said that. Does it disrupt the function of our democracy? That's what Congress must decide.

You're assuming he's going to say something we don't already know. The only thing he could say which we don't already know, or could infer, are things he won't say because it will compromise the ongoing investigations.

He goes into more detail as to his motivations, attitude, and fears.

I find it fascinating to watch some reps ask succinct and thoughtful questions while others are vague and disorganized.

His posture looks defensive and uptight when Rs ask questions and relaxed when Ds ask questions.
