Zimmerman Defense Takes Another Blow From Florida Courts

Precedent: In common law legal systems, a precedent or authority is a principle or rule established in a legal case that a court or other judicial body may apply when deciding subsequent cases with similar issues or facts. Black’s Law Dictionary defines “precedent” as a “rule of law established for the first time by a […]

A GOP Twofer

One rule in war and politics is not to intervene when you opponent is self-destructing. Newsweek has produced one of those rare missteps that takes out both the person launching the missive, and the person the missive was meant to help: This cover is juvenile and crude. First off, the halo (sign of Christianity) is […]

FL Domestic Shooting Case Bad Omen For Zimmerman

Before we get into the nuts and bolts of the recent case for domestic shooting (no one harmed) I will say I believe the sentencing was way over the top. However, the case illustrates what I have been saying about the Trayvon Martin case for some time. That is: the use of a firearm in […]

Concealed Weapons Are Not License To Play Cop

A lot of my readers do not understand why I have such confidence in the fact George Zimmerman was rightly charged in the death of Trayvon Martin. Most of their angst is due to the fact they let politics enter into their thinking and – whether they admit it or not – they don’t want […]

Are The 2010 Insurgent Voters Still Out There? You Betcha!

Apparently the 2010, insurgent Tea Party voter (as opposed to any attempt to organize an actual political party) is alive and well in Indiana. And my guess it is alive and ready to vote change in all 50 states and the White House this year. While the GOP tried mightily to co-op these independent, centrist […]

Economic Chaos & Strife Lead To Dictatorship

Published by under All General Discussions

It is a well established fact of history that broad economic hardship leads to chaos and strife, which leads to mass/mob anger and panic – which can easily lead to brutal dictatorships and  then mass graves. Hard economic times do not have to follow this progression, but brutal regimes do arise from chaos and strife. […]

Unemployment Debacle Cannot Be Covered Up By Poor Statistics

One thing that always amazes me with the left is their idiotic drive to believe in a biased number over brutal reality.  Last week the monthly unemployment numbers came out and we are supposedly on a glide path to economic repair because the unemployment rate dropped to 8.1%. The fact is the 8.1% unemployment number […]

Zimmerman’s Excuses Falling Apart

A good (but not perfect) tell for when someone is trying to cover up is how they ‘refine’ their story over time. And apparently someone is trying to refine Zimmerman’s claim that 17 year old Trayvon Martin – armed with a bag of Skittles – was a threat to George Zimmerman and, therefore, had to […]

Party Like It’s 1984!

Well isn’t this special: A covert group of EU foreign ministers has drawn up plans for merging the jobs currently done by Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council, and Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission. The new bureaucrat, who would not be directly elected by voters, is set to get sweeping […]

So Who Really Is Against Scientific Discovery?

History is replete with the social upheaval of scientific revolution. In this repeating saga of humanity, there are always two camps: the established ‘consensus’ and the heretical new thinkers. The most infamous of these upheavals was the debate between the terra-centric (flat earth types) and heliocentric camps of the renaissance. The consensus was held by […]
