So, if you haven’t heard the news yet, new documents “have been released” by the Justice Department concerning the 9-11 2001 terrorist attacks.
From the Miami Herald:
The Justice Department Friday made public four new, heavily censored documents confirming that by 2002 the FBI had found “many connections” between 9/11 terrorist figures and the Florida family of “an allegedly wealthy international businessman” with ties to the Saudi Royal family.
“On or about 8/27/01 his family Read more [...]
In the past, I’ve spoken out against cities targeting bikers for special punitive taxes. But that doesn’t mean I think it makes sense for politicians to try to make people use bikes more often.
Consider this story from USA Today:
The number of people who commute to work by bicycle increased about 60% over the past decade, while the number of people walking to their jobs remained stable, according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
During the years 2008-12, about 786,000 Americans commuted Read more [...]
If this woman who wrote for Slate is being truthful, then she is in a very bad situation. She can’t afford her own place and has to sleep on the floor at her son’s house. She also may have colon cancer but can’t afford to go to the doctor.
These are really bad things but why should her employer be singled out as the responsible party?
When I woke up to see the news, I could hardly believe it: President Obama is planning a visit to the Mountain View Wal-Mart where I work.
But the excitement Read more [...]
Here is a very interesting look into how China sees itself as the 21st Century progresses: “China's 'New Silk Road' Vision Revealed.”

About that recent article I posted, responding to people saying monogamy should be scrapped... um...
From CNS News: “Chlamydia Sets U.S. Record For Most Cases of Reportable Disease.”
A total of 1,422,976 new cases of Chlamydia trachomatis were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2012, “the largest number of reported cases for any notifiable disease in the U.S.," a CDC spokeswoman told CNSNews.com.

Debating guns in our society is one of the hottest topics in any media outlet. There is a notable pattern I've noticed, one that's all too common. Those who oppose guns can't dispute the facts, so they use scare tactics and a list of 'what-ifs' to make their scary points. Most of the time it works on uneducated citizens, including the younger college students who are easily influenced by emotional content. Once we can remove the argument and look at only the facts, there are some surprising Read more [...]
Encouraging developments in the battle against the Bushes, Gates, Soros, etc,, and their corporate and big-government Common Core education abomination. Michelle Malkin writes at Townhall.com, “Good Riddance: Common Core Backlash Claims New Political Casualties.”
All politics is local. So Republican politicians with national ambitions better pay attention to what grassroots parents are saying and doing about the federal education racket known as Common Core. In bellwether Indiana this week, Read more [...]
When the State Department finally got around to designating the Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram as a terrorist organization last November, it still dithered and diddled and implied that other motivations were driving the Islamic savages of Nigeria to wage war against Christians.
"These designations are an important and appropriate step," a State Department statement read, "but only one tool in what must be a comprehensive approach by the Nigerian government to counter these groups through a Read more [...]
You can read a summary of what happened at the Fox Latino website. Basically, the Sinaloa Cartel (yes, as in Mexico) had a stash house in St. Paul, Minnesota where someone stole thirty pounds of Methamphetamine and $200,000 in cash.

But while the details are available via Fox News, a more interesting aspect of what happened Read more [...]
More Andy Griffith, less Rambo. Kudos to Officer Gaetano Acerra of Sumter, SC... well done.
A Sumter, S.C. police officer recently went above and beyond the call of duty for a 13-year-old boy.
Last month, Cameron Simmons called police because he was upset after fighting with his mother and didn't want to live in the house with his family, according to WIS-TV.
Officer Gaetano Acerra responded to the call and tried to talk to him.
"I said, 'You have it good, you have a roof Read more [...]
