Asher Price Is a Ninny, Or, The Mythical Value of Diversity

December 8, 2020


There’s a prevailing dogmatic fancy that a plurality of skin tones among administrators of government is always an improvement over the traditional monochrome. This liberal article of faith, which adherents would prefer be called a principle, is exemplified by Austin American-Statesman reporter Asher Price in a news bit I’ll address shortly. Like many mainstream liberal […]

Diddly: What Judges Who Issue Restraining Orders May Know about the Law

March 11, 2015


I should go back and edit out whatever grudging credit I’ve given to judges for their knowledge of the law in posts past.

Turnabout is Fair Play: Scrutinizing the Character and Conduct of Officers of the Court

November 29, 2013

They’re paid the same intently lurid curiosity as a wreck on the side of the road. Auditors can’t avert their ears. I read stories about the horrors endured by victims […]

Restraining Order Administration and Money, Money, Money, Money, Money

May 30, 2013


“The restraining order law is perhaps the second most unconstitutional abomination in our legal system, after our so-called child protection (DSS) laws. The restraining order process is designed to allow an order to be issued very easily, and to be appealed, stopped, or vacated only with the utmost difficulty…. “The motives for this law are […]

“Do I Need a Lawyer?”: On Combating Restraining Orders

May 28, 2013


“Do I need a lawyer?” is a question that commonly brings restraining order defendants to this blog and other sites like it. No one wants to shell out thousands for an attorney to bat away allegations made on a restraining order that may have been concocted in a fit of pique by an embittered friend, […]
