    Four years later, a black man is exonerated by the criminal justice system.  In September, 2011, Vernon Michael Rich, Jr. pictured above, gave a ride to co-worker who was worried about a violent attack by her ex.  From savannahnow.cm: The woman told police Wells walked up behind her as Rich was turning his car around to leave. Wells started arguing with her, demanding to know who Rich was. Wells tried to hit the woman, police said, but she backed away and sprayed him with Mace. That’s when Wells allegedly walked over to Rich’s car and started hitting him as...

    People who pay union dues may be donating to Planned Parenthood whether they like it or not. The Free Beacon reported on Monday that three of the biggest unions in America donated a total of $435,000 to Planned Parenthood during 2014. The three unions were the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and Service Employees International Union (SEIU). AFSCME and SEIU both represent public sector employees.​ But the ties between Planned Parenthood and some of America’s biggest unions go far beyond donations. Almost all of the 2014 union-donated money was spent...

    In many ways, Mr. Trump is the wild card in American politics From the perspective of all of us “average Joes,” I think it is fair comment that virtually anyone running for U.S. president these days is, by definition, a shameless self-promoter—with something of a God-complex—or a loose screw. With the multitude of problems in the world, who would want the pressures that come to bear or that fish bowl existence? Although likely to flame out as shooting stars are wont to do, Mr. Trump is channeling the very real “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take this...

Now it’s just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or being elected president.” Huffington Post goes on to explain that the decisions were rendered by “five Republican judges on the U.S. Supreme Court.” According to liberal left commentators, experts, political...

But in an effort to better understand presidential candidate Trump, I turned to his autobiography, TRUMP – The Art of the Deal.

    In May of 2015, Minnesota enacted an omnibus firearm reform law.  The law went into effect yesterday, 1 August, 2015. One of the reforms was a change in the wording for Minnesota to recognize permits from other states.  The previous wording required that the other State's law be "substantially similar" to Minnesota's permit law.  The Commissioner of the Department of Public Safety is required to publish a list, and if the State that a person has a permit for is not on the list, then the permit is considered valid.  Here is the old law, that ceased effect on...

    The BSA decided that it profited the organization to lose its soul so it could gain the world. Its punishment will be, I suspect, that it will end up without either. There has been much written about the Boy Scouts of America’s recent acceptance of openly homosexual scout masters. The organization has been raked over the coals by the right and accused of offering only a half-measure by the left. But few appreciate what the BSA has actually done — and the BSA has no idea what it has done to itself. Scouting has never been just about tying knots...

    Here’s hoping the CMP videos initiate a paradigm shift in the nation’s thinking. We’ve got nothing to lose but our self-imposed cultural degradation The “banality of evil” became part of the cultural lexicon following the publication of German-born author Hannah Arendt’s 1963 book “Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil.” The book recounted the trial of Nazi Adolph Eichmann, who was chief of operations for the Gestapo-run Department for Jewish Affairs, and responsible for the deportation of three million Jews to extermination camps. Arendt hypothesized that people who carry out such barbarous crimes may not be inherently...

Not for the cause itself, which is merely the latest trend in left-wing economic illiteracy, but I too once ran a business in which I thought I could do amazing things by paying people way more than their experience levels or qualifications would earn them anywhere else. It didn’t work for two reasons. First, a business can’t survive when employees can’t generate...

In 1968 blacks accounted for 10.9% of the population. Today they constitute 13.2% of the population. So, what industry is the most rife with racism? The media.

With the videos, though, there is no offset. It’s all downside. It...

    If there is any story on this blog that you’re going to grow tired of reading, it’s the one about the former NBA or NFL athlete who is now broke and living with his mama. These stories are everywhere, and it has people wondering if the Harvard-educate d financial managers being employed by professional sports leagues are actually helping these guys protect their wealth or if the players are being chewed up and spit out by people who could care less about them. But we’re all responsible for our outcomes, and when we read stories like this one, we have...

    TO some, millennials — those urban-dwelling, ride-sharing indefatigable social networkers — are engaged, upbeat and open to change. To others, they are narcissistic, lazy and self-centered. ..... Earning Much Less, Despite More Education They are faced with a slow economy, high unemployment, stagnant wages and student loans that constrict their ability both to maintain a reasonable lifestyle and to save for the future. Longer term, rising federal debt payments and increased spending on Social Security and Medicare will inflict a tremendous financial burden on them, threatening their own prospect of receiving promised retirement benefits. To a considerable extent, that’s the...

  • How three enterprising Chechen ladies took ISIS for $3,300

    Yahoo Travel reported on Wednesday that three women in Chechnya took ISIS for $3,300 before getting caught. They are now under investigation for Internet fraud, which seems to be illegal even when committed against the most fearsome terrorist army in modern times. The scam seems to be a combination of the Nigerian Prince con, in which a mark is fooled into giving the con artist large sums of money and catfishing, in which the mark strikes up an online romance with someone he thinks is an attractive woman (or man depending on the gender and preference of the mark.)
  • Debt Slaves: 7 Out Of 10 Americans Believe That Debt ‘Is A Necessity In Their Lives’

    Could you live without debt? Most Americans say that they cannot. According to a brand new Pew survey, approximately 7 out of every 10 Americans believe that “debt is a necessity in their lives”, and approximately 8 out of every 10 Americans actually have debt right now. Most of us like to think that “someday” we will get out of the hole and quit being debt slaves, but very few of us ever actually accomplish this. That is because the entire system is designed to trap us in debt before we even get out into the “real world” and keep...
  • If The American Dream Is To Own A Home, Then It Hasn’t Been In Worse Shape Since 1967

    Thanks to the “Obama recovery”, the rate of homeownership in the United States has fallen to the lowest level in 48 years. The percentage of Americans that own a home is widely considered to be a key indicator of the health of the middle class, and we have just learned that during the second quarter of 2015 that number dropped from 63.7 percent to 63.4 percent. It is now the lowest that it has been since 1967. Unlike a lot of other government economic statistics, this one is fairly difficult to manipulate. Either someone owns a home or they do...

    Looks can be profoundly deceiving. At first glance, Tracy “Trace” Sargent could easily be a high-powered corporate CEO or lead a marketing firm. This petite Georgia blond with a commanding presence and the charisma and intellect to match, looks like she would fit elegantly at the head of a boardroom. You certainly don’t envision this refined, vibrant woman with a sweet Southern drawl to be out enthusiastically hunting lost persons, getting dirty, crawling through rubble, or chasing down fugitives by moonlight. Yet that is exactly what she has been doing with her K9 partners for over 20 years, gracefully shattering...

    Ever since Donald Trump literally exploded onto the political scene, tens of thousands of words have been written by all stripes of political junkies trying to figure out just what do we have here. Is he a shoot-from-the-hip kind of loudmouth, as he is being made out to be, or is he perhaps the real thing? Is he the kind of true believer we haven’t seen since the days of Harry S Truman? A few of you may be old enough to remember that Ol’ Harry called ‘em as he seen ‘em. He publicly likened the smell of his political...
