Welcome to Solomon's Conservative Wisdom

Welcome to my Conservative Blog, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom. The name comes from my middle name and the historical & biblical figure King Solomon, now I make no claim to have Solomon's Wisdom, but I do have Common Sense. I welcome anyone to join in and comment about anything I may have written, posted or one of my Articles / Columns. This blog is dedicated to conservatism and freedom. I invite all conservatives to join in, I don’t mind non-conservatives joining in (after all the only way to change liberals and fence-sitters is to debate them and change their minds, some are just too hard headed to admit they are wrong) . All I expect is a respectful debate.

I have recently split my postings to a few other blogs I own, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom II, and Solomon's Conservative Wisdom at Townhall.com, to spread out some of my postings.
So check them out and tell me what you think.

Please comment on my Articles and Columns, as well as any other post that is not just a link to a story.

I want to know what others think and have a debate. And make sure to check out my Articles and Columns if you haven't already.

So tell everyone you know.

"Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood."

Thoughts on the Next-Generation iPhone Situation.

For the last week or so we have all heard about the Next-Generation iPhone that was found in a bar that was left there by a too drunk Apple engineer, who is described as young by the way, then "sold" to Gizmodo, which they "reviewed or examined," then Apple demanded the Next-Generation iPhone back, and then the authority's got involved raiding the Gizmodo editor's home issuing the debate over whether he is covered by the shield law for journalists and the issue of journalistic ethics and police raids. And now the man who found it regrets his mistake.

First I want to go over some Common Sense things first, the man who eventually found this Next-Generation iPhone in his position, how ever he got it, at the bar is looking at least the charge of selling stolen property or a similar charge, next the editor whether he is considered a journalist or not can not receive or buy stolen property for a story, unless they obtain it to turn in to the proper authority's or owner and then they can with out threat do a news story on it in my opinion, and as to Gizmodo and criminal charges I don't think they face any credible charges.

Now as to whether the police should have done their raid differently, I think so, there is no evidence that the Gizmodo editor was buying tons of stolen property, not even a rumor, so they could have just used a subpoena to get him to produce what they wanted, and then a warrant if he didn't comply.

Personally to me this whole thing is turning into some kind of comedy skit one might see on TV, the way the story is developing.
