Heard the One about Not Interfering with Consenting Adults?

wedding rings Florida is legalizing cohabitation because government shouldn’t interfere with consenting adults. What about florists and cake decorators?

According to Reuters, “Florida moves to repeal 1868 law banning 'sinful' cohabitation.” The Florida legislature is moving to legalize unwed cohabitation, repealing an 1868 law that makes "lewd and lascivious behavior" among Read more [...] Continue reading →

Judge to Mother: Circumcise Son or Go to Jail

gavel scales law books A judge has delivered an ultimatum to a mother to force her to circumcise her son. Many people assume that, if the hospital wants to cut off the foreskin from our male babies, there must be a good reason to do so. But there is also a strong minority of people who refuse to circumcise boys. They don’t think the alleged health benefits can possibly outweigh the fact that to circumcise means to cut into a healthy organ. So when I saw this headline at Reason.com, it took my breath away: “Arrest Read more [...] Continue reading →

Are All Hate Crimes Equal?

coke pepsi hate Hate crimes, if they mean anything, have to be assigned in an equal manner. Will that happen for a case of arson against a church? A church experienced some vandalism and arson.

Police Dept Settles with Man who Video-Recorded Police

video record police When this man video-recorded police, they jailed him and took his phone. I am not sure this is good news because they are paying a mere $15,000. His lawyers are requesting that the city pay another $44,000 for the time they worked on the case. The Orlando Sentinel reports, According to the suit, [Alberto]Troche was downtown Orlando Dec. 7, 2013, about 2:30 a.m. when he saw a crowd and heard a man calling for help.

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 [...] Continue reading →

Satanic Group Wants Display in Florida Capitol

ReligiousExpression The anti-Christians are at it again. A group calling itself the Satanic Temple wants to put up a "holidays" display in the Florida State Capitol, after a similar display was rejected last year. Helping to push the effort is Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which sent a threatening legal letter to the Florida Department of Management Services over its refusal to allow the Satanists to set up in the Capitol. The letter contained the usual claptrap about the "wall of separation" Read more [...] Continue reading →

Woman Jailed for a Spoon before Charges Dropped

Huff A story about a woman jailed for spoon, seems like it should come from another country. But it happened in the U.S. The police are insisting that they were merely “acting in good faith,” but their victim suffered a great deal due to a false accusation. KRON 4 reports, “Woman Busted for Possession of SpaghettiO’s Sauce May Sue.” A Florida woman may pursue legal action against police and prosecutors after she spent more than a month in jail for possession of SpaghettiOs. Police Read more [...] Continue reading →

Gun Free Zone - Man Robs Restaurant with Machete in New York, not Texas

machete Many people have noticed that gun free zones are invitations to shooters. In some states we see that they are invitations to machete-wielders. I am not saying that we would never see a story about a machete-armed robber in a state that didn’t subvert the Second Amendment. We might. But it wouldn’t be likely and, when it did happen, it would be a humorous anecdote. So for example Dave Jolly’s post about an attempted robbery in Florida: “Robber Had Cattle Prod. Store Clerk Had Gun. Who Read more [...] Continue reading →

Criminals Impersonating Cops: What Does That Mean for Self-Defense?

blue gloves In many states, they try to jail you for videotaping them. They will break into your home in a blitzkrieg, sometimes burning babies. If you shoot to defend yourself as they break into your home with guns drawn, they will charge you with murder. I could go on and on. Of course, I’ve had some great experiences with police officers. One was so helpful with a flat tire and never bothered to ask to see my ID. I wanted to send a letter of commendation to his superior saying he acted as if there was Read more [...] Continue reading →

Florida Haters Bar Man From Marrying Porn-Loaded Laptop

homo wedding cake Obviously, just like Massachusetts, Florida is run by a bunch of Christian haters. Why else would they forbid a man from marrying the love of his life—his porn-loaded MacBook? It all started with a “gay marriage” court case that argued the Florida government is obligated to recognize so-called “gay marriages” that are legal in other states. According to Broward Palm Beach New Times this allowed additional arguments: Enter Chris Sevier, "a former Judge Advocate and combat veteran" who Read more [...] Continue reading →
