Do our driver’s licenses really need “radio frequency identification chips?”
In my previous post, when I referred to Michael Jackson as a “sicko perv,” you can say what you want about him and include the phrase “child molester” if you want to, but I believe in “presumption of innocence.” He was acquitted of that, but any grown man who has little boys in his bed [...]
Yesterday, the United States House of Representatives voted for another huge increase in fascism and further erosion of our liberty. And, they took some time for a moment of silence to mourn the death of a sicko perv, of which there are many in Congress. One hopes that the more sane among us will mourn [...]
So, let’s see if I have this right. Goldman Sachs receives $billions in taxpayer-funded bailouts last Fall. And now, they had the most profitable period ever in the first half of 2009, so they pay the $billions back to the Feds to escape the obligations attached to the bailout money (that was extorted from taxpayers), [...]
Would a future Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor say it’s okay to strip search a 13-year-old if it’s a “white male,” but not okay to strip search a 13-year-old if it’s a “latina?” (Probably.)
I actually thought that South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford had done a “Ted O’Brien,” who didn’t think he needed a compass or a cell phone in his hike in the New Hampshire White Mountains. But, it turned out, Sanford was only doing some other kind of exploring.
It’s a shame that we have to be privy to such private details of the life of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. On the one hand, if he’s been cheating on his wife, do we really have to know that? However, given the whole situation of his being missing for several days, with no one [...]
I can’t wait for the new Micro$oft operating system Windows 7 to be commercially available, later this Fall. I still have XP and Service Pack 2 and I don’t want Service Pack 3, given some of the problems some people have had with it (although others have said it works just fine). THERE WAS NEVER [...]
“Libertarian Republican” Eric Dondero wonders whether conservatives are more libertarian than libertarians, in the conservatives’ praising the demonstrations and criticizing the government’s crackdown in Iran. I think that most rational people in our country, libertarian or not, are rooting for the Iranian people and their freedom. And it’s a good idea that we speak up [...]
Here is my new column, Separation of Marriage and State. In the column, I assert that homosexuals have as much a right to marry as do heterosexuals. And yes, it is a right to marry. A lot of people don’t like to hear something like that. Well, I would ask someone who is married to [...]
It appears that prosecutors have dropped charges against 96.9 talk host Michael Graham, who was arrested for driving with a revoked license. The policy of the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles was and still is that they can revoke your license but not tell you they did that, leaving the chance that you’ll get arrested [...]
It’s father’s Day! Here’s an interesting Father’s Day message from British Psychologist Jill Curtis.
