Report: Ohio Mulling Death Penalty for Abortion

Well there goes Ohio lawmakers again. I am convinced that the time is near for mental health evaluations to be a factor in qualifying for candidate status. Possibly an internship requirement too. Okay, well anything that would help them understand the limits of their jobs. Savings would be time, taxpayers dollars, and most of all […]

Star Buck$, an Expression, a Piñata and Police

Today it’s Starbucks’ turn for caustic opprobrium. It’s their turn to be piñata of the day, because there were more decent customers than others, in the coffeehouse, and a woman was adroit enough to use the most feared weapon in America -a cellphone.

But there are some troubling facts. The […]

Keep GOP Far Away From Your Kids’ Schools

First, not surprised that it’s Florida GOP again. One of the top states for corrupt government. I listened to DeSousa talk his trash on MSN about his movie, making the “Indian Wars” into just another conflict over land and historically normal. Quite sync with Ayn Rand view that the Native Americans had no rights and […]

Well known, is that an interested, informed, active citizenry is not only vital to the government that we want, but its efficiency and values be in harmony […]
