Official police cowardice means it is better to sacrifice the innocent to death and maiming than risk a police officer’s life.
Look, I get it. Being a police officer today can be a thankless job. Even when you do the right and necessary thing, mindless minions in the culture and their media-savvy figureheads might decide to turn the criminal you had to take down into a martyr. At that point, you find yourself vilified by a bunch of people who don't care a whit about justice—they simply Read more [...]
At an Obama campaign event Democrats walked out.
This is being portrayed as an event where Obama campaigned for a Democrat running for the office of Governor in Maryland.
But that portrayal is not convincing. Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown is ahead of his GOP opponent by 11 points according to Real Clear Politics. So this wasn’t Obama helping out a local politician. This was a local politician with a comfortable enough lead that he believed that he could afford proximity to the President Read more [...]
Any deficit reduction victory will soon be forgotten amid a national debt crisis.
A few days ago Bob Allen responded to Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew’s “victory lap” over the historically small deficit.
You know you’re doomed when your Secretary of the Treasury takes a “victory lap” simply because the Federal Government devoured an all-time record of citizens’ hard-earned money—and it still spent half-a-trillion more than it plundered!
A Bloomberg story backs up Bob’s Read more [...]
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, notice of Obamacare insurance cancellations are going out to many Coloradans.
It is all just more fallout from the Big Lie: “If you like your plan you can keep your plan.”
The Colorado Division of Insurance announced Friday a surge in health-care policy cancellations in the wake of Obamacare, just what Democratic candidates in high-profile races didn’t need less than three weeks before Election Day.
In a letter to state Senate Republicans, Colorado Read more [...]
Same sex marriages are mandatory for Christian ministers.
And the hits just keep on coming.
“It's all about equality...” “We just want to live and let live...” “It won't lead to polygamy.”
Here is the story from Todd Starnes of Fox News Radio: “City Threatens to Arrest Ministers Who Refuse to Perform Same-Sex Weddings.”
Two Christian ministers who own an Idaho wedding chapel were told they had to either perform same-sex weddings or face jail time and up to $1,000 in Read more [...]
The Ebola Czar shows that people want to believe in magic. They want to believe in magic people who work like genies granting wishes.
It is pretty clear that no one knows how to manage the PR and the real health risks involved in the African Ebola epidemic. So what do they do? They find someone who they want to believe will make all the hard decisions for them. If that person fails, the blame will be put on him. If he succeeds, Barack Obama will take the credit (though he will generously give Read more [...]
Recent fuel prices are spoiling the government’s plans for getting us all into alternative energy and other technologies they have been pushing on us.
In every case, the government’s apologists and spokespersons claim, in the most condescending and pretentious manner possible, that the government has the experts and the resources to tell us all how to best move into the future. We don’t have “five-year-plans” in the U.S. but that isn’t because the people who rule us don’t wish Read more [...]
A town is blatantly running a criminal operation in its gun permit procedure. Of course, being criminal, they did try to keep it quiet for awhile. But, now that it is revealed, they have insisted on continuing.
The Second Amendment acknowledges the right to bear arms, which calls into question the whole concept of a government-issued gun permit. But the law has been allowed for a basic background check involving public information.
The Fourth Amendment acknowledges the right to be secure Read more [...]
Customers are imposing Obamacare rationing on themselves.
There were a couple of reasons given for the Affordable Care Act, one of which should lead us to expect Obamacare rationing. On the one hand, we were told that people were not able to afford needed medical care. On the other hand, we were told that people were spending too much on medical care and they needed to stop wasting resources (especially if they were old).
Now we find that people, who have insurance through Obamacare, are Read more [...]
Trial by jury means that, whether you are really guilty or not, if the jury acquits you, then you are acquitted. Once the jury has spoken, no other authority can punish you for that accusation.
But it doesn’t mean that. Not anymore.
Yesterday I ran across the Simple Justice blog’s post, “Sotomayor and Kagan, An Unforgivable Denial.” I suspect the title reflects the political perspective of the writers who expected better things of the liberal justices.
It is interesting that Read more [...]
Arizona State University goes fascist because some students wore face paint to match team uniforms.
I don’t understand liking football enough to go and sit through a game, let alone painting one’s face to match the team colors. But fans do it all the time—including college students rooting for their college team.
So, ASU had a “blackout” game where the usual team colors were not on display. The college actively encouraged fans to wear black to match the special team colors. No Read more [...]
It is probably not hard to guess why campus interracial violence is not a major national news story.
Here is how a local station is reporting the incidents:
The ABC7 I-Team is reporting a rash of random attacks near the University of Illinois flagship campus. A safety alert for students was posted after Champaign police say five students were jumped and beaten by a roving gang over the weekend.
One-by-one early Saturday morning, a gang of men attacked several people as they walked down streets Read more [...]
