Militarization of Law Enforcement How did it ever come down to abandoning peace keeping and accepting law enforcement by any means? Even the New York Times expresses alarm in, When the Police Go Military. “The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 generally bars the military from law enforcement activities within the United States. But today, some local and city police forces have rendered the law rather moot. They have tanks – yes, tanks, often from military surplus, for use in hostage situations or drug raids – not to mention the… View Articleclick here for more

The monarchy represents inequality, class division and a history of slavery, say three permanent residents of Canada who appeared in an Ontario court Friday to challenge the citizenship oath’s mandatory declaration of allegiance to the Queen. “The idea we’re being asked to swear allegiance to an … offshore Queen — I just couldn’t do it,” said Michael McAteer, an applicant in the Citizenship Act challenge. “[The monarchy] is the antithesis of everything I see a democracy should be.” The three applicants argue they have religious and conscientious objections to taking the oath. They said in court documents that the requirement… View Articleclick here for more

Liberal Media Tries to Ignite Race Riots I got confused this evening when rebooting my computer and AOL came up with a breaking headline that “Jurors find Zimmerman not guilty”. I thought I had clicked on the link but a story came up about the jury asking for clarification. So I went back and repeated the process with the same result. On try number three what I finally found was a Huffington Post headline by Jermaine Spradley, yes he is black, which read…”George Zimmerman Not Guilty: Jury Lets Trayvon Martin Killer Go?” Ouch there brother Jermaine, I think you and… View Articleclick here for more
