Teen Pregnancy

This is a follow up to my post, One Degree of Separation, on These Stories, I was looking at a friend's website, Online breaking news-Latest breaking news, and their current post, Shocking Discovery: 10-yr-old girls can be pregnant, was on teen pregnancy, specifically England and Wales. It reminded me of something I had seen a few years ago on snopes.com about a five-year-old Peruvian girl who is the youngest mother on record, you can find the story here, (A word of warning: I am not directly linking to the story due to an image of the girl on the main page.) I wonder if the progressives or Planned Parenthood think that sex education would have prevented that poor girls situation? I wouldn't be surprised if their answer is yes. The problem we have in society at the moment (in this issue) is over sexualisation children, the progressives encouraging of loose values and sex ed class that tell way too much in how to do it and little in the way of the true consequences, and the death of personal responsibility when it comes to moral values. Again for Planned Parenthood they have two reasons for their actions, progressive values and profit motives. Parents need to be more active in their children's lives, and if I might take this some where else all children need in general a mother and father figure not just one or the other, I believe my favorite Judge, Judge Joe Brown has been speaking about this for sometime now.

The Death of a Modern American Icon, the Hummer.

With the news this past week that the Hummer's brand will possibly be ending with the deal rejected earlier this week, and having read some of the liberal and progressive opinions, I decided to write a small piece on it. While there is still a possibly that the Hummer may continue with other companies interested in purchasing the brand and GM is reviewing those offers, for now I am assuming that they or anyone else will not be continuing the Hummer brand.

First off I believe the Hummer will become an American Icon like the cars and trucks from the 30s to the early 60s, while many like Bill O'Rilly may be celebrating the end of a gas guzzling monstrosity, this didn't have to happen, as any one can check from my past two major articles, Ethanol - The Gas Substitute that Can’t. And Other Options and, The Oil Company Profits and the Truth Bill O’Reilly Ignores, and also this article, They're making the same mistake again. Russia Unveils Stealth Fighter, you might find relevant. For the past sixty+ years the government has been mucking around in private companies business when it comes to technology, as I pointed out in the previous article, They're making the same mistake again. Russia Unveils Stealth Fighter, when the government is allowed to decide what technology is feasible and what's not, it can have horrible consequences. If you look at my post on Nuclear Power, we should be more technologically further along then we currently are, this is because of the environmentalists and progressives views, wither legitimate or not. While some scientific research should be done in very restrained conditions as to prevent the possibly of bad things get out of control, it does not mean that the government should be the ones to decide what that research is this is not a video game.

Unlike people like O'Rilly, people should be able to drive what ever they want as long as they can pass the drivers test, this country was built on freedom, and sometimes that you have to let something you don't like be produced, I don't like some of the small cars that have been suggested we use many of them look like golf carts, but I don't want them ended just because I do not like them. While this isn't completely an issue of freedom it is important to note that many of the politicians who have issues with what they call Gas-guzzlers, they are quick to use these vehicles often rich luxury versions of those vehicles, making themselves hypocrites using what they tell others not to use.

The people, the consumers should be the ones who determine what is successful and what isn't, and while the Hummer is line that suffered from the high gas prices, it is the energy policy, one which has been against using American resources for America, the Slogans "Drill, Here, Drill Now" & "Drill, Baby, Drill" may be simple the American people see what the opposite produces with the Chinese working on drilling of the cost in Cuban waters in ways that could tap into American resources, something that disturbs the average American. And as to the issue of oil companies having land they can supposedly drill on in leases, even is they should find oil resources there, there is no guaranty that the government will allow them to exploit those resources, as has happened is a couple of cases.

Of coarse the Hummer will not disappear from the highways and road ways of America, just as many classic cars and trucks still ply the roads today maintained by people like Jay Leno, car collectors who prize such Americana as well as other countries contribution's to automotive history. Every day one of us will see these classics that will remind us of what America has done and what we're still capable of doing.


The Oil Company Profits and the Truth Bill O’Reilly Ignores.

First I know someone, or more then one, is asking what is your issue with O’Reilly? I don’t have a problem with O’Reilly exactly, I have a problem when he spouts liberal, progressive, and populist ideas. I will go in-depth on that in a separate article.
Now to the point of this, first some quick numbers we use 200 billion gallons of gasoline and diesel annually, if we were to multiply that number with the average profit per gallon of gasoline, $0.10, we would only get 20 billion dollars, so where does the oil company’s big profits come from? First is the misunderstanding of what a barrel of crude oil produces many seem to think you take a barrel of crude oil and turn it into a barrel of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and kerosene and then you mark up the price and claim a barrel of excuses of why it costs so much. The truth is far more extensive.
Here is a percentage brake down of a barrel of crude oil, approximately 45 percent of all crude oil is refined into gasoline, 7 percent is refined into diesel fuel, and another 7 percent into jet fuel. Fuels for heating and energy production account for approximately 26 percent of all refined petroleum. 13 percent of petroleum proportions serve as raw materials in manufacturing, these "petrochemicals" are used in manufacturing cosmetics, detergents, drugs, fertilizers, insecticides, plastics, synthetic fibers, and hundreds of other products in the marketplace. And such products as lubricants and specialized industrial oils account for the last 2 percent of petroleum production. Also by-products of petroleum refining are also used as raw materials in certain industries, these by-products include asphalt, the chief road building material, and
wax, an essential ingredient in such products as candles, milk cartons, and furniture polish. As you can see removing oil from our modern civilization and society right now, as those on the environmentalist’s side want, would have disastrous results.
The problem is that the oil companies don’t defend themselves, for whatever reasons they have, my suspicions are, based from when I talked to O’Reilly on his now defunct Radio Factor show and how he has treated Neil Cavuto and other conservative economists, the probably look at it from a lose-lose point of view. If they were to go on with him he would brow beat them, dismiss any points they try to make, and claim things like profit margins are smoke and mirrors.
Here are the profit margins for some big well known companies, Microsoft’s is almost 30%, eBay follows at 21%, Google’s is approximately 19.5%, which is followed by McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, and Pfizer all around 18%, Apple comes in at 15% (this might go down if the iPad falls on its face), Disney comes in at 12%, AT&T 11%, GE 10%, Nike 9%, and the Health Care industry sits around 3.3% so where do the oil companies sit in this list? With Nike at 9%, Exxon Mobil and Chevron both have a profit margin of 9%, which means for every dollar they pull in only $0.09 of every dollar is profit, now how’s that for gouging?
So how do you get the profit margin of a company? First you take a company’s profit, lets say Joe’s Book Store has a profit of $255,932, you divide that by the total dollars the store takes in, lets say that Joe’s Book Store pulls in a total of one million dollars this year, that would be $255,932 divided by one million which would equal 0.255932, move the decimal over to the right by two spaces and you get the profit margin percentage, Joe’s Book Store would have a profit margin of 25.56%. As you can see its fairly simple especially with a calculator.
So why don’t you hear these things from the mainstream media? Simple, they are made up of liberals, progressives, and populists, in addition to believing that the oil companies are evil, greedy, and polluters that want to destroy the earth, they have an agenda the same one the original progressives and Marxists had over one hundred years ago, one where the socialists make the decisions what is good for you and if it "harms" you, society, or the planet you can’t have it, they might even ban it. The problem is they are elitists who use emotion as a weapon, if they say it’s bad, you are to march lockstep with them and if you don’t you get yelled down and called names to shut you up.
People like Bill O’Reilly are caught up in that emotion, they don’t stop to calm down and look at the facts. They let the liberals, progressives, and populists use them without knowing it, thinking like O’Reilly does they are protecting the people from the greedy. The solution to this problem is simple, we need to get these people to calm down and look at the real numbers & facts so they will realize that they are being used.

The Orca Attack.

Well, O'Rilly has done it again, I wasn't going to make any comment about the attack by the Orca, but last night O'Rilly just had to go there.

First about orcas, they are commonly known as Killer Whales, (scientific name Orcinus Orca), they are a member of the order Cetacean and family Delphinidae, while called "Killer Whales" Orcas are actually related closest to dolphins and porpoises then Whales. I prefer to call them Orcas simply because I like that name better.

Now as to the attack, see the story here, Whale Kills Trainer as Horrified Crowd Watches, O'Rilly's usage of Moby-Dick as some kind of legitimate material on whale attacks, even if he was being farcical (by the way look at what I wrote in the previous section), it was over the top, and as to the orca's previous history of attacks, this isn't the same kind of animal as a dog, wolf, shark, lion, or bear, this orca, Tilikum, it wasn't trying to eat her or some other thing these orcas have been in captivity for some time, the first incident with Tilikum and some other orcas sound like they were playing, the second incident was someone who had visited SeaWorld the previous day, stayed after the park closed, and evaded security to enter the orca tank and was found dead the next day, he apparently died of a combination of hypothermia and drowning, so you can't blame the orcas on that one, and until we get the full story I am personally with holding judgment on Tilikum. And as to the issue of ending the showing of Orcas, this is just O'Rilly's standard knee jerking to something again, and while I am thinking about it why didn't you immediately call for every one with a pilot's licence be immediately checked to make sure they don't go flying planes in to building, and lets restrict who can get a pilot's licence as well! I am sure that will work just as well as your idea of ending the showing of orcas.

And since I am this subject let me stress my opinion as to Humanity using animals, I actually don't have a problem with it in general, I don't really care how the cow, pig, turkey, or chicken died to get to my plate, all I care about is if the animal was healthy when slaughtered and is cleanly slaughtered. As to pets obviously we don't want people abusing pets, Michael Vick is a good example, several dangerous individuals supposedly started out killing animals, but California's plan for listing animal abusers like they do sex offenders is just outrageous. The first time someone is seriously injured or killed by E.L.F. or A.L.F. because of this list, I and several other conservatives will be there, pointing how we warned that this would end up becoming their hit list. I really don't see a value to a public list like this. There are some pretty sick individuals out there and a large number of them won't be found on some list.

I will probably expand on my views latter, but for now this is it.

The So Called Health Care Crisis

With the current Health Care Summit going on, I thought I would talk about it, first I like how the republicans managed to reverse the trap the Dem's had planned, personally I thought they shouldn't have gone. Now on to the issue of Health Care I want to start with some of the more contentious issues such as the issue of preexisting conditions, health care coverage mandates, the public option & mandatory coverage, and the issue of employer coverage.

Duke Lacrosse Accuser Charged With Attempted Murder, Assault

With the recent news of the former Duke Lacrosse Accuser Charged With Attempted Murder, Assault, I thought I would take the chance to bring up a book in my private library, It's Not About the Truth: The Untold Story of the Duke Lacrosse Case and the Lives It Shattered. If you haven't read it you need to, it tells the full untold story of the Duke Lacrosse Case, and reveals all of the dirty players of the case, not just Mike Nifong's history, (which will surprise you, especially his title of the Chief Asshole of the Durham County district attorney's office, that alone should have you wanting to read the book;) ), but other bad actors in the police department, Duke, and the media's history, which you haven't heard of. It also includes the actions of the supporters of the so called victim, Crystal Gail Mangum. And my favorite part is the fact of a video tape of Crystal's performance at a strip club on March 25, 2006 that Mike Nifong had no interest in. The true story is more then just about one rogue prosecutor.

The book is 320 pages of information on the full untold story of the Duke Lacrosse Case, with a lot more then what I have just told you the link to the book is at Barnes & Noble.com for about six dollars, and is well worth it, it will have you shaking your head at the bad actions and probably laughing at some of the outrageous things the bad actors were doing and did. The book is by Don Yaeger with Mike Pressler the former head coach of the Duke Lacrosse Team.

Check It Out.


P.S. This will be my first post for a new thing I will be trying called Review Wednesday.
Please tell me what you think, and I know it was posted a day late, I had to finish some other posts first. Please post comments on this.

The Ole Miss mascot, Colonel Reb

I thought I would post something on the issue of the Ole Miss mascot, Colonel Reb, in case most of you have not heard about this let me tell you about it, in 2003 the administration of University of Mississippi eliminated Colonel Reb as the official mascot of Ole Miss Rebels, as of 2/24/2010 students have voted to replace him, personally I don't like the PC mentality that has pushed this, there is a dark horse movement to have the Star Wars character Admiral Ackbar made the new Ole Miss mascot. Personally I have a better suggestion for the students, one that the administration of University of Mississippi couldn't refuse without ending up with egg on their faces, redesign Colonel Reb and take him back to the war of independence for the American Colonies, change the uniform to colonial rebel and change the beard style to that more of the revolutionary war period, this would make it hard for the administration of University of Mississippi to turn down a caricature of an American Icon. Now I know Mississippi wasn't a state until 1817, but the people of Mississippi were members of America.
Any way that is my opinion.

Ethanol - The Gas Substitute that Can’t. And Other Options.

So why am I doing this now, you are probably asking, well the other day I found my old notes on Ethanol when I was calling into the Radio Factor when O’Reilly believed, I think he still believes it, that Ethanol could solve the problem of high gas prices, which it can’t. His "winning" argument for Ethanol was "well Brazil is doing it."

Follow up to, A Snowballs Chance in ...

One last picture, this one is from yesterday (2/14/2010) about 11AM. As you can see there was still some snow left Sunday, most of it is gone today with the rain.

This is the last of the snow pictures from this weekend, if you want to you can see my earlier posts on this, A Snowballs Chance in ... from Saturday, February 13, 2010 and, Global Warming Update, the Sky is Falling in Augusta, GA. from Friday, February 12, 2010. If it should snow again I might post some more pictures, but only if it accumulates like it did Friday.

One Degree of Separation, on These Stories

I have two news stories that are unconnected, but are related in terms of content, Planned Parenthood Pushes Intensive Sex Education for Kids as Young as 10, and Girl, 11, Gives Birth to Baby Boy in Northeast Hospital. It would be best if you read both stories before continuing reading this for context, but you don't have to if you want to read this first.

The problem with Planned Parenthood is they push their trash for both a socialistic reason and one driven by profit, the socialistic reason is the same as any socialist, progressive, or liberal has they either think that conservatives are prudes that need to get with the modern era, they have some new age vision of love where you can love, (and fill in the blank, I.E. use your imagination), person(s), creature(s) or anything(s) you want with out judgment and can merry anything you want, or as others have been talking about they want to evolve society to make it more evolved. It's the profit driven one that is much more evil, more people engaged in intercourse of any type means more people in need of various services, tests, abortions, and several other services, now I know that some liberal or progressive is going to respond in this way or a similar fashion, " We don't want that, we just want to educate children on sex to protect them, and we certainly don't want eleven year-olds having babies, we want to educate them so that won't happen." Right you will educate them so the know to go to Planned Parenthood lie about all kinds of things so they can get an abortion, and they will respond "We don't want them getting abortions either." The problem with their argument is in the type of sex education they want to give our children, nothing about abstinence, and everything about how to do it, what to use, how to use it, and maybe they will through in copies of the Kama Sutra for extra measure to them, but they won't tell them about the dangers, oh sure they will warn them of STDs like AIDS and others, but they will tell them how condoms will protect them they with out informing them about the possible failure rate. The will use language like "your parents don't understand" or something similar, I have seen to many teens in various media who have told their sad tales with the point of they were never told the dangers, the failings of condoms and other so called protections by these so called well meaning educators.

Starting with the 60s & 70s started this whole, your children are your friends, few rules or boundaries, and the whole liberal-progressive advocation of how to raise children advocates, some of these so called rights that the progressives want to give children don't just go into left field they just keep going. If you want to stop progressives it will take more then just limiting the federal government, they know if you have it your way their plans are for not, that's why the school curriculum is so important to the progressives if they get to your children they have the next generation, that is why Obama was partially able to win, that's why parents need to pay attention to what their children are learning in school and if you can't change the school then you might be forced to go with a private school or homeschooling, there are many options, but that is for another post.

No matter what you want to believe about those who want to teach your children when it comes to sex education, you should always be suspicious of their motives, to many believe you are too conservative or prudish as the Planned Parenthood document shows, they think you are doing harm to your own children. If they could they would get rid of you, but they can't that is why the use the police powers of the government in the schools to feed this trash to your kids.

My point is simple, know what your children are being taught in school, who is teaching them, and what the liberal-progressive movement is pushing in the schools to be prepared.


Nazi Germany's Secret Plan to Bomb New York

In a follow up to my post from a few weeks ago, Something Disturbing, I saw this on foxnews, Nazi Germany's Secret Plan to Bomb New York.


A Snowballs Chance in ...

The same general area as last night's pictures, you can see how much snow my area got in the second picture, I measured it at almost 5in around midnight. 1st picture was taken about 10AM.

Even better, I saw this story on foxnews, Global Warming Debate Heats Up in Wake of Record Snowstorms. The Global Warming debate is settled alright just not the way the Climate Change advocates think.
And in another Climate Change story, Meatless or Vegan Mondays. I am not even in the mood to deal with that one, but you can find a posting on it, here at Dickster's Random Thoughts, post Vegetarian Diet More Harmful to Environment than Meat Eating.

Global Warming Update, the Sky is Falling in Augusta, GA.

For the last hour it has been snowing down here in Augusta, GA, it started a hour before the warning was to go into effect at 3pm and it seems to be picking up. If I can I might take a picture of it.


Update-4:25PM 2/12/2010

As you can see fat snow flakes and accumulation.

Update-4:50PM 2/12/2010

As you can see more accumulation at 5pm.

Update-6:15PM 2/12/2010 - Snow-mageddon Moves South.

Last photos for the night, more snow and it has accumulated up to 2in on a wood railing, and its still snowing, with the temp still dropping. If any one can check to see if Al Gore is speaking somewhere, or we could start an Al-alert.

If this is Global Warming, I shudder to imagine Global Cooling!

New images of 9/11 released

The NYC PD has released new aerial photographs its officers took on the attack on the World Trade center on September 11 2001. Link here. With all that has happened in the last few months maybe this will remind some people of what we are dealing with in this war.


It’s the hottest year on ... what?! Record Snows in the Northeast!?

With all of this record snow in the Northeast, the most in over one hundred years, you have to wonder what is going on in the mind of Al Gore and other global warming believers, maybe something like this, "It’s the hottest year on ... what?! What do you mean Record Snows in the Northeast!? I . .t . .s . .Its. . . Its because of . . . climate change. That’s it! Because it was so hot that’s why its snowing so much in the Northeast." Yea, and I was just talking to bigfoot about having a poker game tonight. They will do and say anything to make themselves look right, and in the end they only humiliate themselves when the truth comes out or record snows hit.

Oh, and here is a link to a story on the record snows, Here.


Killer Bees, More to Bee Afraid of then Before.

This last week, Wednesday, February 3, 2010, I was watching one of my usual shows, this one was MonsterQuest, the episode’s title was "Giant Killer Bees, and as you can guess it was on Killer Bees, the title is a reference to giant swarms. If any of you have watched MonsterQuest before you know how they do the show first they describe what the "Monster" is, and show a digital version of the creature, sometimes compared to something else, such as a Bigfoot compared in size to a human, tease interactions the "Monster" has had with people, and introduce the experts. Well with this episode they really didn’t need to search for the "Monster," within the first ten to fifteen minuets of the show the experts went to an abandoned house, that was in the desert if I am remembering it correctly, where they found a hive living in the house’s walls, and as soon as they started disturbing the hive the bees poured out of their hive and swarmed over the experts. Here is a six minute clip of the show that someone posted on YouTube of the experts and the part on of the house, Link. You will notice in the clip one of the experts picks up a Barn Owl that the bees killed. I know that in that clip they agitated the bees, but what you can’t see without seeing the full show are other attacks by the Africanized Bee (the Killer Bee’s proper name) in the US, where their full threat is shown. I could explain the whole show but I feel that you should watch it yourselves to better understand it, unfortunately this episode won’t be rerun for at lest two weeks, as of February 9, 2010, if not more. The point is that the Africanized Bee has an extremely aggressive behavior when it comes to defending their hive, part of this defense is when one bee is killed or has stung an intruder this releases a pheromone that triggers the other bees of the hive to attack the intruder(s), and as you can imagine this has a cumulative effect. There were other issues about them that was discussed on the show but I don't think it is relevant to this discussion.
I also have the video of a BBC wildlife report from Texas about the Killer bee invasion, Link. And I have the link to a National Geographic clip on the effects of the Africanized Bee on the rainforest, Link.
Part of the problem with the Africanized Bee is how aggressive it is, several things can trigger them, a lawnmower, vibrations that disturb the hive, a bee killed by accident close to the nest (it doesn’t need to have stung), and they can be attracted to other things as well that if disturbed when attracted could trigger an attack.
So why I am I talking about this? One reason, I have always had an issue with dangerous animals that can’t be lived with or avoided, and Killer Bees are on the top of my list, the fact that they will attack with such ferocity combined with their expansive nature, makes this a big problem. Let me paint you a picture of a worse case scenario set in Las Vegas, someone accidentally disturbs an Africanized Bee nest, in response the bees start attacking anything that moves, other nests near by start attacking as well, this forms a huge area where until the bees calm down or all of the bees are dead no one will be safe. A proverbial Bee-mageddon for the city.
And while I am on this subject I might as well bring in the film, The Swarm (1977-1978), while the idea of a massive moving cloud of Killer Bees is over the top, at the same time they actually had something to work with, if a hive is disturbed they will attack anything that moves, it doesn’t have to be alive for them to attack it, and if that hive is close enough to other hives could trigger a greater attack. This is just a theory but if one hive is threatened others might react in response because they may view that the predator/intruder may try to disturb their nest. Also here is a link to the trailer for The Swarm on YouTube, Link. Just in case your curious.
Unfortunately there is no easy solution to this problem, with the Africanized Bee well spread in South and Central America, even if you were to get rid of all of the ones in the US territory, more would just move in from the south. Only a constant monitoring will keep the general public safe, and government shouldn't be the only ones trying to remove this threat.

'Miss Me Yet?' Billboard With Photo Of Bush Is Real

You have to see this, Link, I know its at NPR, but its still amusing.
While I have issues with Bush's more progressive actions, I think most people who voted for Obama might be looking at this, after all that is happening with the Fruit of Kaboom Christmas Bomber, going "Yes!", but that's just me. Either way its still amusing.

Three Historical News Stories about Rome.

As a History buff and a fan of Roman history here are three news stories I wanted to share, Film-makers uncover lost source of Roman aqueduct, The Roman Army Knife: Or how the ingenuity of the Swiss was beaten by 1,800 years, and Cracking the codex: Long lost Roman legal document discovered, the latter is vary interesting and I think has some similarity to today's times.

How to Improve Public (Goverment) Schools Pt on Summer Vacation

I didn’t plan on doing this so soon, but I saw a story on this and I have decided to do a preview of my How to Improve the Government School System, this one on the drive to get rid of summer vacation.

First the origin of summer vacation for schools was during America’s agrarian roots unlike many of the stories going around about it being for the spring planting or fall harvest which don’t fit time wise, it was for the growing season, and before the modern version of the school system you had the school house and schooling was either voluntary or done by parents, and the children would work around the home, farm, or family business. Now the modern incarnation of summer vacation came into being with the increasing middle class and the ability for those families to take vacations that would last for several weeks.

Now as to the movement to get rid of summer vacation and the argument to extend the school year, I find it is usually pushed by liberals and progressives who use the excuse of Summer Learning Loss, while it is true that children "forget" things during the summer vacation, so do most adults after most start some career, they forget things which to them have no use or does not interest them. I find that the main motive is to keep kids in classrooms longer by using various excuses such as comparisons with foreign countries like Japan with higher scores and all-year school, but what they don’t tell parents is why US scores have dropped in the last few decades, because of their progressive agenda. I will have more on this in later parts of this series but for now I will finish up on this subject.

The liberals and progressives real agenda is to keep children in school longer away from their parents with longer school years and Saturday school so that they can indoctrinate children with their progressive agenda, free from potential medaling by parents. Just look at some of the liberal policies some schools have pushed in recent years, changing what the grades mean, ending the use of red ink, the tolerance for bad behavior (and I don’t mean the class clowns), and the bureaucracy we see in the government school system, there are many more that I could list but I will keep it short.

Finally if you were to compare the homeschoolers scores with the foreign scores you would see what Americans are capable of doing without the progressive interference. The fact that the average American Goverment School Student scores well is amazing with all the progressive interference going on.

I will be busy with other things for the next seven days, so I won’t be able to work on my blog as much as the past few days, I will try to post a few things, when I get the time, at least something once a day until I can put more attention to this blog.

I will post a new Article on the 6th on How to Improve Public (Goverment) Schools, on the movement to get rid of Summer Vacation.

If you haven't all ready seen it, you should now.


A Lawyer in Under an Hour or get out of Jail Free, Unless you are an American Conservative. Updated

With what I have been hearing in the last couple of days about what happened with James O'Keefe and friends, it’s starting to look bad for the government. James O'Keefe and friends were asking for their lawyer but where pretty much ignored so that the prosecutors could make what they did sound like Watergate, but on the other hand the Fruit of Kaboom Bomber can get a lawyer in under an hour even though he was singing like the proverbial canary about what might be coming, now he’s shut up thanks to that lawyer. And lets not forget the case of the Black Panthers that the Justice Department basically won but once Eric Holder got a hold of the case he snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. So if I follow the logic of the Obama Administration if you’re a terrorist you get a lawyer in under an hour or you get out of jail free but if you are an American Conservative you are the real threat to the nation. It will be a wonder that we get out of this Administration with out a major terrorist attack.

And when James O'Keefe and friends get in front of a jury, if just a few of the jurors tried to call Sen. Mary Landrieu's office and got a dead or busy line they just might vote not guilty to spite the government, a conservative version of the OJ trial, just without murder.



The lead prosecutor has recused himself from the case. read the story Here.

I will retain most of the other features on my blog, in particular my quotes section at the top.

New Attacks on the Tim Tebow Pro Life Ad to air during Super Bowl.

Well now Gloria Allred is claiming the Tim Tebow Pro Life Ad is "Misleading Advertising" because they are not including in the Ad all the information they claim it should, seriously if conservatives where doing the same thing they would be crying bloody murder over it. I have even heard some where now, some on the Pro-Abortion side are claiming the Ad violates some law!? I think all of America with common sense sees the Pro-Abortion side for what they are, a bunch of intolerant and angry people who just can't stand to see the other side make its point.

It was bound to happen eventually.

I believe everyone knows of Simon Cowell and his style by now, even if you don’t watch American Idol. Well it’s finally happened someone is suing him for saying she has no talent on the British TV show, Britain's Got Talent. I think this is a good example of frivolous lawsuits, a major problem here in the US. Read the story and just imagine what would happen if the progressives got it their way, Link.
