So, I’ve been a on a kick lately, looking up videos and cases of Police brutality. Or should I just say abusive use of a power. Some of the stuff you come across, while it is claimed to be police brutality, is a lot of times the police doing what they have to do. If […]

Casey Anthony Trial Underway

Casey Anthony Trial Underway

Welcome to the Three Ring Circus of the Casey Anthony show. Watch as her attornies attempt to magically demonize her family (true or not, does it matter much?). Be amazed at how Casey has transferred into a grieving mother of a dead child. But don’t miss the best act of all: the trickery, where it […]

Where do we draw the line

Where do we draw the line

Full body scanners or intensive pat-downs, that is the question. The answer by an overwhelming number of Americans is neither. And for good reason. America was founded as an ideal nation, a land of the free. Our forefathers had the insight from experience that a government that abuses its people in the name of authority […]

Bank of America now in the business of home invasions?!

Reading the Wall Street Journal today, an article on the 3rd page caught my eye. Apparently, Bank of America has gotten into the business of home invasions and parrot-napping (NY Daily News). Angela Iannelli, a 46 year old from the Pittsburgh area, came home to find her door padlocked, her house ransacked, and her 11-year […]

We have a date with Casey Anthony

We have a date with Casey Anthony

May 9th, 2011. Judge Strickland has made that the start date for Casey Anthony’s trial. But with the way her defense team works, I bet it’ll be 2012 or 2013. She might as well confess to the damn thing and get a life sentence at this point, jeeze. She’s also requesting that the state, err, […]

McDonald vs Chicago – 2nd amendment at stake

As much as I love Chicago, I couldn’t live there. No point moving to a city where the bad guys (correction, kids) can shoot you, and you can’t do much about it.
