I got so angry posting about this homicide that I used the term “Death Squad” for the police raid. Was I using inaccurate hyperbole?
For those who don’t have time to follow the link, allow me to recap:
David Hooks was a resident of Dublin, Georgia, who is not a young African American with a criminal history and is thus never going to be given national media attention.*
David Hooks had his SUV stolen from his house.
He reported this theft to the police.
The police found the Read more [...]
It makes good sense to believe that a minimum wage law destroys jobs. Common sense will point out to you that, if a company is struggling, its revenue cannot increase if they are forced to pay more for employees. For example, what would happen to McDonald’s, which is already struggling, if every employee was paid double?
And now there is more evidence. Breitbart.com reports: “Study Claims Minimum Wage Increase Cost Americans 1.4 Million U.S. Jobs.”
A new study by researchers Jeffrey Read more [...]
Restraining orders show that killers rule.
This story showed up in my Facebook feed yesterday: “Torres sentenced for murder of Amber Fernald.”
Alexis Torres arrived in court on Thursday morning to learn his punishment for the murder of a mother of three on June 10.
In November, Torres pleaded guilty to the murder of 33-year-old Amber Fernald in her Sixth Avenue Lansingburgh apartment.
Fernald’s children were in court on Thursday — authorities say they witnessed their mother Read more [...]
John Boehner should find coal in his stocking.
Here is the headline from the National Journal: “House Narrowly Approves Massive Spending Bill.”
The House narrowly approved a massive spending bill Thursday night just before the government was set to run out of cash, as an unusual coalition of Republicans and Democrats teamed up to pass a measure that drew fierce criticism from both liberals and conservatives.
The $1 trillion spending measure passed 219-206, with 161 Republicans and 58 Read more [...]
One of the most powerful emotions within our souls is anger. The sense I have is that the palpable level of anger in America is rising. “The more we learn about government, the more we learn about central bankers, the more we learn about the military industrial complex, the more we learn about social justice and the environmental movement, the more we learn about the move towards world government, the more we learn about politicians and political institutions and the corruption, waste, fraud, Read more [...]
What makes us unable to breathe?
I want to say right up front that I do not think that the cops are always right. In fact, my involvement in on-the-street pro-life ministry has proven to me that the average cop does not even know the law. They simply follow orders as directed by their superiors.
I appreciate good cops. We need more of them. But merely wearing a badge does not give anyone the right to ignore or make-up the law. We are a nation of laws. When those who enforce Read more [...]
Dorian Johnson, whose story made a city burn, is now working for local government.
I thought I was beyond shock. I was wrong. This is beyond unbelievable.
The man who caused disruption beyond measure across the country, and untold agony and destruction in his own hometown due to his demonstrably and verified false testimony... has been hired by the government.
Here’s a St. Louis Post-Dispatch headline: “Michael Brown witness Dorian Johnson hired to do work for city of St. Louis.”
Dorian Read more [...]
A law to hurt pensions was slipped into the huge spending bill.
Crammed within the "we have to pass it, so you can find out what's in it" over-a-trillion-dollars spending plan currently moving through Congress with no one but the lobbyists reading it is a section allowing pension plans to cut benefits to current and future retirees.
Here’s the beginning of the analysis from the Daily Bell blog: “So It Begins: Congress to Cut Pension Plans.”
“Congressional leaders hammer out deal Read more [...]
Did you know that the adage "People who live in glass houses should not throw stones" came from the Bible?
According to President Obama it did. (It didn't.) But then he rewrites the law to suit his political needs, why not the Bible?
Personally, I just cringe whenever I hear President Obama reference the Bible or anything in it. It's become a sort of gag reflex.
When Obama starts lecturing the country about "my faith," I'm reminded of Matthew 7:21-23:
"Not everyone who says to me, Read more [...]
The government may have bad motives for mandating electronic records.
Recently I’ve heard stories on the radio about the need for doctors and other medical professionals to convert their paper filing systems into electronic records. It seems there are both grants available to help with expenses in making the conversion and even fines for those who resist the process. All paper needs to be converted to data for “the cloud.”
These stories take for granted that there is nothing but an upside Read more [...]
Without TSA incompetence that baby would have had to stay attached to the umbilical cord.
From the Dallas News (business section, oddly enough): “Oh, baby! Southwest Airlines says it picked up an extra passenger during flight.”
Southwest Airlines has put out a statement about a baby born aboard a Southwest flight Tuesday.
Here’s its statement.
Southwest Flight #623 from San Francisco to Phoenix safely diverted to Los Angeles when a baby was born shortly after takeoff from San Francisco. Read more [...]
Lying journalists lie because they don’t even believe in the truth.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Jonathan Gruber and the so-called "journalists" at the Rolling Stone are a product of the same failed worldview. They have been brainwashed over and over in their elite academic bubble with a sophistry that there is no such thing as truth, and only "perspectives."
Thus, we find out from the Reason blog, “Rolling Stone's UVA Rape Story Just Took Another Massive Hit.”
The Washington Post just Read more [...]
