    HALETHORPE, Md. (WBFF) - A man who was breaking into a car in the Halethorpe/Lansdowne area Sunday morning was found dead after a witness tried to "hold" him until police responded, said Baltimore County police. Police did not immediately clarify if the witness killed the suspect, but the incident is being investigated as a "suspicious death." The witness was in the parking lot of a business on Annapolis Road near Virginia Avenue at about 8:30 a.m. when he saw another man breaking into a car on the lot, said police.

    Anyone familiar with an accurate telling of the political truths leading up to the events of mid-April, 1775 in small towns and villages west of Boston knows that while the Colonials and their British masters were at loggerheads for the better part of a decade over a number of issues including taxation and liberty, the immediate and proximate trigger of the first American Revolutionary war was an attempt by General Thomas Gage to disarm the Colonists. Yes, the American Revolution was triggered by a gun control raid that was met with force by the American people.

    SAN DIEGO — The man who planned to be president wakes up each morning now without a plan. Mitt Romney looks out the windows of his beach house here in La Jolla...He devours news from 2,600 miles away in Washington about the "fiscal cliff" negotiations, shaking his head and wondering what if. Gone are the minute-by-minute schedules and the swarm of Secret Service agents. There's no aide to make his peanut butter and honey sandwiches. Romney hangs around the house, sometimes alone, pecking away at his iPad and emailing his CEO buddies, who've been swooping in and out of La...
  • Demography Isn't Destiny When Voters Are Economically Informed

    Political handicappers make it sound as if demography is destiny when it comes to which policies and candidates people support. Women are presumed to support Democrats; men to favor Republicans. Young Americans vote for liberals, while seniors go conservative. Voters in Southern states are reliably red; the coasts and Northeast are blue. Yet new research suggests that another factor powerfully affects one’s policy and political preferences: One’s awareness of basic truths about the U.S. economy. The Independent Women’s Voice, an educational advocacy organization, has been researching the relationship between economic literacy and support for policy ideas. Most recently, IWV commissioned...

    This message, crafted with malice towards none, is an impassioned plea written solely to focus the thinking of my beloved fellow Americans on our impending national crisis. Specifically, my unconventional writing technique serves but one purpose; to encourage the estimated 80 million voting age millennials (citizens born between the years 1980 and 2005), to stop, think and honestly consider the gravity of the upcoming Presidential election: how might one or two decades of continued economic misery and arrested national development impact your life? Please, examine facts and ignore the typical media. If Barack Obama and the mainstream media are successful...

    "And you will be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation." (From this week's Torah portion, Yitro, Exodus 19:6) Before the giving of the Torah, before the Ten Commandments, before the most momentous and splendorous ceremony in history, the Creator explains why. Before "Honor your parents", before "Guard the Sabbath day to sanctify it", before all the 'how', G-d explains why He gave us the Torah; why this trek from the House of Bondage to the Land of Israel. What is the destiny? What is the purpose? "And you will be to Me a kingdom of priests...

    The Newt Surge is official. Over the last week, Gingrich’s Intrade odds of winning the nomination rose from 16% to 39%. Romney has faded a little but still leads with 47% odds. No one else is above 5% odds. The polls are even more stunning. Rasmussen shows Gingrich leading 38%-17% in a national poll. Real Clear Politics lists polls with Gingrich leading Romney by 15-30 points in Florida, South Carolina and Iowa, and trailing Romney by only 10 points in New Hampshire. In the general election match-up, Rasmussen has Gingrich leading Obama by 2% and Romney trailing Obama by 6%....

    The current migration of foreigners seeking to enter into the United States illegally is being backed and supported by Obama, the Left and also Moderates (which was also previously supported by the Bush Administration, by the way). Even some prominent evangelical leaders have drunken the kool-aid on this. The supporters of illegal immigration have their own deranged reasoning and agenda in backing this endeavor, but it is one that is based on lawlessness and against the very fiber of the Constitution of the United States. In light of today’s ruling on Arizona’s new immigration law SB 1070, is it a...

    A radical reformulation of quantum mechanics suggests that the universe has a set destiny and its pre-existing fate reaches back in time to influence the past. It could explain the origin of life, dark energy and solve other cosmic conundrums.The universe has a destiny—and this set fate could be reaching backwards in time and combining with influences from the past to shape the present. It’s a mind-bending claim, but some cosmologists now believe that a radical reformulation of quantum mechanics in which the future can affect the past could solve some of the universe’s biggest mysteries, including how life arose....

    1878 AD | Edward White
    A LOOK AT THE POSSIBILITY THAT CHRISTIAN TEACHINGS HAVE ERRED ON HUMAN DESTINY. The following argument was presented by Edward White in his classic book, Life In Christ, Chapter 7, pages 65–70; published in 1878 AD, 3rd Edition, by Elliot Stock, London, England. This 559 page book is now in the Public Domain In reproducing White’s argument, and making it more palatable to read, I have taken the liberty to substitute a few words to bring it more in-line to our American English understanding. I believe it worthy of consideration to anyone who desires to learn a little history of...

    Many, if not most Christians think or believe that the saints of both the Old and New Testaments are alive in some place between death and resurrection. But is that what Jesus and His apostles taught? Let’s find out! In Matthew 22:31–32 we read of Jesus saying: “But about the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what God said to you, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?’ (Ex. 3:6) He is not the God of the dead but of the living.” Luke records Jesus’ response this way: “But in...

Having engaged in the lively debate in these pages, Larry now wraps up our Avatar coverage with a look at the film’s message and its ramifications, along with comments on its use of science.To some the new film...

    For a happier life, shake off your misplaced optimism By Alain de Botton Published: April 30 2009 19:11 | Last updated: April 30 2009 19:11 It has been clear for a while, at least since the first talk started about “green shoots” of recovery, that what we have to fear above all is hope. Attempts to trust that the worst is over and to stop frightening ourselves seem doomed to project us into yet worse disappointment. We are not only unhappy but – believing calm and happiness to be the norm – unhappy that we are unhappy. It is time...

    FINANCIAL SENSE ONLINE ^ | 4-3-2009 | J.R.Nyquist
    It seems that we take our good fortune for granted, and when fortune turns ugly we lament the world’s unfairness. What do those who are blessed by fortune really know about the unfairness of the world? If the U.S. economy collapses and America goes hungry, will we remember the misfortunes of Bangladesh, Biafra, or Sudan? If millions suffer abroad, do we imagine that we are immune? The happiness of America, suggests Philosophy, is chance happiness. By its very nature, this happiness cannot last. It is temporal, it is transitory. One day our material happiness must turn to physical suffering and...

There are the red states of the heartland, flyover country as they say, but there are a lot of blue states on that map as well..too many. I remember pretty vaguely, but I do remember 1984, when Reagan won his 2nd term in a complete landslide, the map was Red, all red, except for Minnesota and DC. That was great...I remember even then a feeling of happiness and peace. Reagan, 4 more years, we can relax, we are in good hands. I...

    <p>Until recently, the biggest thing going for Hillary is that she has appeared "inevitable." This is no accident. Mrs. Clinton may not be as naturally gifted as her husband, but she does have access to his playbook. One of Bill's more brilliant strategies when he ran in 1992 was to campaign as if he were already the nominee. It gave an otherwise little-known governor the legitimacy to sideline his opponents.</p>

    (Angus Reid Global Monitor) - Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton could defeat Republican Rudy Giuliani in the 2008 United States presidential election, according to three recent voting intention polls. In a survey by the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion released by WNBC, 50 per cent of respondents would vote for the New York senator, while 40 per cent would support the former New York City mayor. In a study by Gallup for USA Today, Rodham Clinton holds a six-point lead over Giuliani. In a poll by Opinion Research Corporation released by CNN, the Democrat also leads the Republican by six...
