Bubble Mentality: Rinse and Repeat

Sunday, April 25, 2010 7:44 4 Comments

I read both of these stories back-to-back in recent editions of The Detroit News. Story #1 on the theft of electricity: On a recent sunny morning, Mark Johnson, head of DTE’s (Detroit Energy) revenue protection unit, drove through east-side Detroit neighborhoods pointing out illegal electric hookups. At a complex of 12 apartments on Whittier in [...]

Killing People Can Be Fun for Kids, Too

When “sick” equals cool. Dylan Harbison said that the weapons simulator she got to use as part of Fun Day with the Missouri National Guard was “sick.” It’s the 10th graders way of saying it was fun. “It was pretty cool,” Harbison said of the high-tech, computerized simulator that allowed her to shoot bad guys [...]

The Market for Young Females/Males

This is rather disturbing: a 14-year-old girl was found to be employed as a topless dancer/stripper at a Detroit sleaze club. You can see what the All-Star topless bar looks like in this photo. Look at all of the ostentatious gold trim, etc. This whole area of Detroit is a porn dive, and nearby, in [...]

The State’s New Lifestyle Demons: Tanning and Salt

Wednesday, April 21, 2010 21:53 8 Comments

A lead story in the news this week has been the latest in a series of propaganda pieces on tanning beds: they are bad for you. The story now goes that tanning salons are bad because they attract people with addictive behavioral patterns. Some dermatology study was produced that will become another piece of ammunition [...]

When Racism is Acceptable

When it is directed toward white people. Or specifically, white running backs. I found this to be quite an amazing article about Stanford’s superstar running back, Toby Gerhart. All around the NFL people are saying that since Gerhart is not black he is not a worthy draft pick. One longtime NFL scout insisted that Gerhart’s [...]

Shooting for Self-Defense?

Sunday, April 18, 2010 13:09 22 Comments

First, a couple of news items that are actually something to cheer about concerning our rights to defend our liberties: Arizona is allowing concealed carry without a permit, and the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled that the University of Colorado has no authority to bar students or visitors from lawfully carrying guns on campus. This [...]

Got Fat? Take Drugs.

This is a highly disturbing – though predictable – event: the development and acceptance of a new generation of “anti-obesity drugs.” It looks like the FDA will review (and likely approve) several drugs that “suppress the appetite.” As if a lesser appetite is the solution to the problem of people putting toxins in their body.

Another Totalitarian, Anti-Smoking Crusade

Friday, April 16, 2010 4:49 17 Comments

The latest act of the US Congress: to get Major League Baseball to ban smokeless tobacco during its next round of collective bargaining. Ballplayers are being blamed for the use of tobacco among American youth. What’s amazing is that the players association is willing to consider this because “Congress feels strongly about it.” Ex-major leaguer [...]

Another Reason I Don’t Watch TV

Whenever I want to be entertained by great talent, good music, or just plain fun stuff, it’s on the web … where I can view it on my (very old but spectacular) Samsung SyncMaster 20.1″ monitor. If you like the Bill Shatner song stuff, this one is golden.

Judge: Defend Yourself Because the State Can’t Defend You

Monday, April 12, 2010 21:45 5 Comments

In Ashtabula County (Ohio), the Sheriff’s Department has been cut in half, and the jails are full with a waiting list for bed space. One man made sense. Ashtabula County Common Pleas Judge Alfred Mackey was asked what residents should do to protect themselves and their families with the severe cutback in law enforcement. “Arm themselves,” [...]
