About Paul Hunter Jones
I was raised in Great Neck, New York. In 1975 I received a B.A. degree from Alfred University. Three years later I graduated from the University of Michigan School of Law and have been practicing law in New York ever since. I am a Republican though I will vote according to the better policy or stance. Politics, law, and finance are my interests. I give special thanks to Cheryl Jones of Lexington South Carolina, my sister, and
Eliana Trout Blanco of Santa Marta, Colombia, a one of the kind friend, for their contributions in the writing of this blog.
I know this corner well. The area is nice and extremely accessible. Businesses and residents lament when they are uprooted due to changes in the a building’s usage. I understand their anguish. There are certain protections in place to prevent illegal removals or evictions. The bottom line is owners, not tenants, can avail themselves of existing laws to maximize the value of their investment in their property. The vitality of free commerce lies in the establishment of laws and precedent that encourage turn over and change from a never ending status quo.
A Russian appeals court is due Tuesday to hear the case of WNBA star Brittney Griner, sentenced to nine years in prison.
What are we missing in this argument? We agree that Grimer is a basketball star. The fact that she was arrested for breaking Russian law is indisputable. She herself admitted her guilt. There was doubt in anyone’s mind that if convicted she would serve time. I know she wishes she had broken the law in NYC. This is wrongful detention? Liberals are capable of arguing that a rock is an orange 🍊 and you can eat it. The US should not waste it’s political capital on an immature and arrogant lawbreaker.
