The rule to not judge by the color of skin but by the content of character means justice must be blind.
We lived in Columbia for a while, waiting for a house to be finished. It was a nice little town, best known for Mule Day. That's probably why this crime hit me so hard when I first read about it—a pizza worker shot and killed... for no reason other than rank evil.
From WKRN-Nashville: “Teen says he shot Columbia Papa John's employee 'to kill him'”
A 17-year-old arrested for Read more [...]
WOTUS? Another acronym! We live in a world of acronyms. It makes people feel isolated if they aren’t up to speed with the latest techno-speak. Examples include the USA, UN, NATO, EPA, ISIS or ISIL, the IRS, DHS, DOD, DOE, BLM just to name a few. POTUS means the President of the United States to those that are in the know. So would you understand a statement that “POTUS was told by the UN that DHS should be prepared for an ISIS threat or they would bring NATO into the USA to make us mind our P’s Read more [...]
We need a powerful Presidency. There is no question about that.
The powers of the office need to be limited to those areas the Constitution prescribes for the Executive Branch, and not one inch outside those bounds. Therein is the problem today, our President wants to be powerful, alright, but in every way—no different from Saddam Hussein's Iraq, or Kim Jong Un's North Korea.

Secular macro-evolutionists stake a lot of weight on the presumed impossibility that creationists can think.
I am amused by the modern Inquisition of the Church of Darwin against heretics who refuse to accept the hallowed and assured Doctrines of Chaos. Supposedly we aren't trustworthy in our ability to reason, and to handle facts, because we don't kowtow to the endless brainwashing of PBS and Public Schooling that spreads the impossible dream that everything came from nothing, and life sprang Read more [...]
Politico is telling us that Kevin McCarthy is the rising star in the Republican Party and Congress with an agenda to “save” the GOP.
Personally, I want Justin Amash to be the savior of the Republican Congress. But McCarthy is now the “number two” guy and he claims he has an agenda.
Politico seems to love him: “Exclusive: Kevin McCarthy vows change on Hill to save GOP.”
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy landed here from Los Angeles with a bang: He bluntly warned that Republicans Read more [...]
Here is an outrageous article about IRS agents and their evil deeds in the New York Times: “Law Lets I.R.S. Seize Accounts on Suspicion, No Crime Required.”
The title says it all.
For almost 40 years, Carole Hinders has dished out Mexican specialties at her modest cash-only restaurant. For just as long, she deposited the earnings at a small bank branch a block away — until last year, when two tax agents knocked on her door and informed her that they had seized her checking account, Read more [...]
Barack Obama often seems disengaged, so why is he acting like a control freak over state Ebola quarantines.
While I think the President’s agenda often reveal him to be a control freak, I don’t see it often in his personal behavior as chief executive. He seems to care more about golf than many issues that seem important to others.
So what is going on that the President is actively opposing things that are not his business and should not be his concern?
Consider this New York Times Read more [...]
Since we have had a great deal of horrible news in which the courts pretend to replace real marriage—a relationship between one man and one woman—with a relationship between two persons, perhaps we should mention that there is some resistance on this issue. The Florida Attorney General has formally stated that a Vermont civil union cannot be dissolved through divorce.
From the Miami Herald: “Bondi formally opposes granting divorce to Lake Worth lesbian.”
Florida Attorney General Pam Read more [...]
Chicago's new policy, that is useless security theater against terrorism, but reduces the impact of the Fourth Amendment, is the result of Federal stimulus.
You don’t even need to dig for the sources of this news summary from Newser.com. The entire training program to make the Fourth Amendment less relevant to the populace can be seen in all its glory.
Chicago police will screen the bags of passengers getting on the city's CTA trains in what the department calls a "proactive, protective measure," Read more [...]
Illegal immigrant accused of killing two deputies.
Here’s a bombshell from Associated Press, “Suspect in Killing of Deputies Was Twice Deported.”
A man suspected of killing two deputies during a shooting rampage in Northern California was deported twice to Mexico and had a drug conviction, federal authorities said.
The suspected shooter told Sacramento County Sheriff's investigators that he was 34-year-old Marcelo Marquez of Salt Lake City. However, his fingerprints match the biometric Read more [...]
Politicians don’t care about American workers impoverished by their policies.
If it seems like it gets harder and harder each year to make ends meet... that's because it is. There is still opportunity out there, but government regulation (Obamacare, other cartel-protecting legislation, etc.), overseas adventurism (military and foreign "aid"—a.k.a. bribes) and profligate waste (that $40-million the President has "invested" for his vacations so far comes from us) put a larger and larger burden Read more [...]
According to Hillary Clinton, businesses do not create jobs.
I know Clinton is a Leftist (or a power-hungry climber who finds support in Leftist rhetoric), but I still can’t believe she said it:
“Don’t let anybody tell you, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs. You know that old theory, ‘trickle-down economics? That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.
“You know, one of the things my husband says when people say ‘Well, Read more [...]
