    I checked out the MaxPowers post and it seems borderline….I doubt its a obscene post the u.s. atty would prosecute nevertheless a disimalate charge…porn is everywhere….any disminating porn charges are always weak and rarely charged unless child porn….why because its too subjective….is the montana porn shops dismentating obscenity?…

    what gets me is how each bloggers try to push the limits….whats good for goose is good for gander
    dont everyone see that each blogger to some degree may be doing sames they accuse the other of doing…

    by all means use the courts but know the odds…defame suits cost a lot

    maxes post almost seems a parady….plus one has to prove damage

    if one wants to push the law, then sue the govt under 42 usc 1983 and engulf oneself in those kind of issues and stop playing silly blogger games david k should become a ankle-biter instead of a dismenator…join a board on govt ethics or something

    i come across some good info on both martin and davidk blog but both some times has silly stuff…iam not looking for rumors but possiable lawsuits against the govt issues….martin to me sometimes needs to look for the ‘sound and thunder’….for example ive had locks picked…and police said was your door kicked open?

    while a picked locked is puzzleing a kicked door is more real…look for real stuff not games….that said both martin and davidk writing has exposed some good info at times re gov’t….good work..and.i dont read Max much yet

    sorry for spelling…just 2 centing here

    Hey Perry Mason, I hate to burst your legal bubble, but given the fact that Max made a reference that he also lost a picture of him making love to Sofia Vergara, probably means that he was just trying to be his almost “funny”, “clever” self. But l hope you spare no expense by taking this all the way to the Supreme Court ! l can see it now: with all nine Justices watching intently, this “white guy contractor” will put on a latex glove, and try to (l’m bleeping this part out). Then your lawyer will turn towards everyone and say, “lf the glove doesn’t fit, you must NOT acquit !”

    Uh oh, Martin is mad! Try getting material facts right and maybe you won’t be the laughing stock of El Paso blogging. You have no beef here with anyone but yourself. Tighten up your screws before complaining about others.

    What state do you have a concealed carry permit in? what name did you give them?

    Do yourself a favor and stop inventing laws to cover your bruised ego. Be a man.

    Martín, the same laws and constitutional protections of free speech that allow you to post lies and rumor under the guise of “I’m just passing along what I’ve heard” are what allow even an anonymous blogger like Max to post the same and worse. Except he’s even more legally protected because his site is obviously full of satire, and his post about the supposed photo he found of you is clearly a parody of your post about the elusive pic of Ortega and Escobar. That darn First Amendment!

    A couple of things before you make more a fool of yourself than you’ve already have. First, Google what happened when Beaumont blogger Philip Klein tried to sue to find out the identity of anonymous bloggers who were critical of him. In short, he lost — the Texas Supreme Court ruled the bloggers’ ISP didn’t have to ID them and they could remain anonymous. Klein’s further efforts to silence his critics were equally unsuccessful. Why? Blogging critically is protected speech under the First Amendment. (cf. Lawyer Charles’ Carreon’s efforts to punish bloggers and a cartoonist who hurt his feelings. Like you, he couldn’t take a joke and didn’t understand the protections that satire and parody enjoy under the First Amendment. But he lost too. Big.)

    Second, Texas has one of the broadest Anti-SLAPP statutes in the country to protect those exercising their free speech rights from frivolous lawsuits by censorious blowhards like yourself. In fact, if you did sue for defamation, Max could file a petition to dismiss, have you pay sanctions and his legal bills, and still remain anonymous under the statute. Thanks, Texas Legislature!

    I’m just sorry I read Max Powers’ blog. As God is my witness, I’ll never do that again.

    “Maxpowers” interest is in getting you to stop focusing on what is important. Don’t fall for it and refocus in what is important. Get the truth out.
