  • Let's sit it out this time [extreme sarcasm]

    The very best thing we can do is recognize that Trump is less than what we'd like in a candidate, so we should just sit this one out and NOT work our butts off to help him get elected. This strategy worked very well for us when McCain was our candidate. And again when Romney was the man. Obama was not that bad as president. Hillary can't be much worse. /sarcasm WAKE THE HELL UP, PEOPLE!!

    A new Obama administration privacy policy released Friday explains how the government will gather the user data of online visitors to WhiteHouse.gov, mobile apps and social media sites, and it clarifies that online comments, whether tirades or tributes, are in the open domain. "Information you choose to share with the White House (directly and via third party sites) may be treated as public information," the new policy says. The Obama administration also promises not to sell the data of online visitors. But it cannot make the same assurances for users who go to third-party White House sites on Facebook, Twitter...

    Yes, Virginia, America WAS once FREE. We are about just a few days away from celebrating America’s birthday, the Fourth of July. Once again, we will be celebrating a fraud. The movement to enslave America and make her citizens serfs to the state began on an April day in 1865 at a little place called Appomattox Court House, Virginia. From that point on in our history Americans lost freedom after freedom, liberty after liberty through a process known as incrementalism. “Dishonesty from politicians is nothing new for Americans. The real question is whether we are lying to ourselves when we...

    If you live in the United States of America, you live in a giant prison where liberty and freedom are slowly being strangled to death. In this country, the control freaks that run things are obsessed with watching, tracking, monitoring and recording virtually everything that we do. Nothing is private anymore. Everything that you do on the Internet is being monitored. All of your phone calls are being monitored. In fact, if law enforcement authorities suspect that you have done something wrong, they will use your cell phone microphone to listen to you even when you think your cell phone...

    As federal criminal statutes have ballooned, it has become increasingly easy for Americans to end up on the wrong side of the law. Many of the new federal laws also set a lower bar for conviction than in the past: Prosecutors don't necessarily need to show that the defendant had criminal intent.

    IRVING, Texas -- The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission has taken its fight against drunken driving to a new level. TABC agents, along with Irving police, targeted 36 bars and clubs Friday, arresting some allegedly intoxicated patrons before they departed the businesses. The officers and agents also kept watch on bartenders who might have over-served patrons. Agents arrested 30 people Friday night. Most of the suspects now face charges of public intoxication. The agents and Irving police officers traveled from bar to bar and worked undercover, according to an NBC 5 report. The report also said that some agents shared tables...

    Is it too soon to get agitated about the possibility of Senator Hillary Clinton running for president in 2008? Not according to Stephen Minarik the head of New York’s GOP. In a recent fundraising letter he wrote, "It's a race for America…stopping Hillary Rodham Clinton is the most important thing you and I can do as Republicans in the next two years." Minarik went on to remind his readers that it is the duty of Republicans to stop Hillary’s presidential quest by running her out of the U.S. Senate. It might be helpful if the GOP would focus on a...

    INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- Police in Independence conducted a driver checkpoint on Thursday, but it wasn't to look for drunken drivers. For about an hour Thursday afternoon, officers stopped vehicles to make sure drivers had valid licenses. But some are questioning the legality of holding such a checkpoint. Independence police have arrested more than 1,300 drivers this year for driving without a valid license, KMBC's Jim Flink reported. On Thursday, police stopped about 300 drivers on a busy street. Independence Officer Tom Gentry said drivers without licenses pose a safety concern. "It's a public safety issue. On public highways, you don't...

    Word spread quickly through the Charleston Naval Station last June: a big-time terrorist was headed for the brig. An entire wing of the base’s military lockup was emptied out.AND WHEN THE PRISONER arrived—31-year-old Jose Padilla—he was placed in an isolation cell with a lamp burning 24 hours a day and a phalanx of guards around the clock. One inmate asked a guard what exactly Padilla had been charged with. “He’s not charged with anything,” the guard shot back. “We’re just holding him.” The prisoner was baffled. “How the hell can you do that?” he asked.Quite easily, it turns out. Attorney...
