  • San Jose light-rail murder case heading toward a trial

    San Jose Mercury News ^ | 9/05/2011 | Mark Gomez
    Two years ago, Kristina Harris Perkins, a 19-year-old woman enrolled in the San Jose Job Corps Center with big plans for the future, lay dead on a light-rail station platform. She had been stabbed in the heart. Now, after a marathon 26-day preliminary hearing spread out over three months, Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Rise Pichon has ruled there is enough evidence to try five young adults -- all from the same San Jose family -- on charges of murder and attempted murder stemming from a deadly brawl captured by security cameras at the Alum Rock station. Two other...

    The Black Sphere ^ | 09./01/2011 | Kevin Jackson
    Welcome to the echo chamber of ignorance of the Left’s post-racial America. Black Liberals thought that electing a black president would make them happier than a Michael Vick pound pup, but instead most are now madder than Whoopi Goldberg’s blind date. In an America where black achievement can be seen and heard everywhere, Andre Carson and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are crying foul, saying that the Tea Party wants to take America back to the ‘60’s. Don’t believe your lying eyes showcasing black achievement all over America, because black people are being oppressed. By the Tea...

    Right-wing fears come true in Dan Simmons’ ‘Flashback’ By Patrick Anderson Aug 14, 2011 02:27AM Dan Simmons’ Flashback is an abundantly entertaining, often outrageous right-wing fantasy about a weak, broken United States 20-odd years from now. The country is ruled by the Japanese, lives in fear of the Islamic Global Caliphate, and its citizens mostly spend their time stoned on a drug called flashback that lets them escape to a better past. Some of the events that have occurred between now and the early 2030s can be summed up thusly: U.S. Goes Bankrupt Israel Destroyed by Nuclear Attack Mexican Army...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | Aug 5, 2011 | John Kass No surprise: Disappoint-mints strike liberals as bad taste Democratic Tennessee legislator gets them removed from university bookstore's shelves John Kass August 5, 2011 Corrections and clarifications: In a Page 2 column on Wednesday, John Kass incorrectly asserted that by raising the federal debt ceiling by $2.4 trillion, President Barack Obama had grabbed "reality by the hair" and kicked it repeatedly "in the behind." But Thursday's stock-market plunge of more than 500 points proves that reality remains immune to the president's charms. The Tribune regrets the error. So what do you give a beleaguered president who just ate a mess...

    The late Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman once said, “Given our monstrous, overgrown government structure, any three letters chosen at random would probably designate an agency or part of a department that could be profitably abolished.” Friedman’s comment in mind, in this column we’re going to discuss nutrition from a regulatory perspective. No, this isn’t me advocating Michelle Obama‘s Nutritional Nanny State; although, much can be gleaned from obesity as the primary dietary problem plaguing our “under-privileged.” Our poor eat plenty of cake and this Marie Antoinette would like it to stop. Gluttonous do-gooder statism spawned the electoral avalanche last November....
  • Middle school football coach fired for politically-charged country song

    FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Music City is full of songwriters, hoping to land that big break. But a now former Middle school football coach in Williamson County said writing a politically-charged country song got him fired, after it rubbed a few parents the wrong way. 26 year old Bryan Glover is not shy about his political opinions. He is proud tea party Republican and felt compelled to voice his disappo More..intment in the current administration through his music. But he never thought sharing his new song would leave him unemployed. The song is called, "When You're Holding A Hammer, Everything Looks...

Below is the full statement Mr. President, 1 . Thank you for organising this interactive dialogue.

    Replacing Barack Hussein Obama is our Number One Priority. The best thing for getting this done is to turn Obama into a subject for Humor, just as the Lefties have done for over two years to Sarah Palin. One Term for Obama is Long Enough and One term for Obama is way too much for our beloved Country, the United States of America.ONE TERM IS ENOUGH!

    Good morning! There are seventeen months left until we retake the country, until November 2012. As far as I know Caligula is the only one who has declared for the RATS. The GOP field is shaping up with many contenders. Sarah Palin is on a JERK THE MEDIA AROUND bus tour in the Northeast and elsewhere to call attention to America's founding documents and our founding fathers and principles. She has promised her radio talk friends in Alaska that she would tell them first of her decision to run. That hasn't happened yet. And in the hypocriscy department, Caligula's administration...

    (mods - excerpt from AP story) ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Five Army Rangers stationed in Washington state have summited North America's highest mountain. Army officials say the soldiers reached the 20,320-foot summit of Mount McKinley in Alaska Friday night, just in time to for the Memorial Day weekend. The Rangers - assigned to 2d Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment at Joint Base Lewis-McChord - made the climb in honor of the 11 Rangers from their regiment who have died in the line of duty. At McKinley's summit, the soldiers planted a flag from 2/75 with the names of the 11.

    If you don’t know a hero in a close and personal way, and Memorial Day is an abstract observation of those who sacrificed, I would like to introduce you to one that reminds me every day of what this day is for. Jacob Tate is my personal hero; a fun loving, church going high school kid turned U.S. Marine, my son’s best friend, and a newlywed Dad with a gorgeous little boy. Tate had the pleasure of watching the little guy, his first, grow inside his young wife. He got to see an ultrasound picture or two, but he never...

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates warned on Tuesday that policymakers would face tough choices trimming military budgets, weighing cuts in pay and benefits against delays in updating aging ships and jets. The outgoing defense secretary, who leaves office at the end of June, did not say where he thought the Pentagon should try to cut as it seeks to meet President Barack Obama's goal of cutting $400 billion in spending over the next 12 years.

This is the speech that I was going to deliver in Boston today, May 15, 2011 had a facility been available to me. Unfortunately, no facilities were willing to host my speech, sponsored by Rabbi Jon Hausmann, because I was deemed to be “hateful”, “bigoted” and “potentially violent”. Well, we’ll see about that. In this speech we are going to cover a lot of intellectual and theological ground. I tend to set my goals extremely high, and...
