Guilty until proven Innocent

Share

Last week, the state of Arizona passed the most… for lack of a better word… Fascistic… anti illegal immigration law in the history of the United States, allowing police officers to ask for “proof of citizenship” of anyone they suspect is in the country illegally. And if that person can not produce such identification (ie: […]

OKC bombing 15 years later. Comparing today’s hysteria to 1995.

Naturally, Republicans were […]

April Fools? Obama opens drilling to draw GOP votes. Will he ever learn?

Share

At first I thought, “This has to be an April Fool’s Day joke.” Last Wednesday, in a move that has infuriated environmentalists and most Democrats, President Obama announced that he would end a longstanding moratorium on offshore drilling off the South East coast and in Northern Alaska (red states) in advance of the upcoming vote […]
