Fort Hood Shooter Asks Islamic State to Make Him a Citizen

As far as I know, the authorities are still calling the murderous actions of Foot Hood Shooter, Nidal Malik Hasan, “workplace violence” rather than terrorism. I understand that he hasn’t been identified as part of a group. But so what? It might still turn out that the Tsarnaev brothers weren’t part of a larger conspiracy. Does that make the Boston Marathon bombing any less an act of terrorism? (Perhaps the fact that Hasan murdered military people and thus did not really hit a civilian Read more […]

Are We Hearing the Death Rattle of Liberalism?

It seems that liberalism is gaining the upper hand. In fact, it seems that liberalism has the upper hand. Not so fast. Empire-building is a tenuous and risky business. Every empire that has tried to expand its territory eventually collapsed because the center could not hold. Adolf Hitler’s dream of a thousand-year Reich turned to dust in less than 20 years.

Government’s Failure to Deal with Criminals Breeds More Crime

Nidal Malik Hasan who’s accused of screaming “Allahu Akbar” and gunning down fellow soldiers at Fort Hood is still waiting to be put on trial. The massacre happened more than three years ago. While there a lot of stupid criminals out there, not every criminal is stupid. The trial delay sends a message to other terrorists that they can hold our justice system at bay. That’s what Hasan is doing and our military justice system is going along with it. There is no doubt that Hasan was the shooter Read more […]

Daughter Regrets Leaving Gun in Car after Parents Murdered

The Luby’s restaurant massacre took place on October 16, 1991, in Killeen, Texas. George Hennard drove his pickup truck into the cafeteria and shot 23 people to death while wounding another 20, subsequently committing suicide by shooting himself. Because of a Texas gun law at that time, citizens were not permitted to carry a weapon in public places. As is always the case, people who want to commit a crime don’t care about laws: “Responding to the massacre [at the Luby’s cafeteria], the Texas Read more […]
