The Academic Impostor Behind the Pit Bull Hysteria

Monday, June 15th, 2015

It has to be something monumental for me to link to HuffPo… but I’ve watched the pit bull hysteria for a few years and have marveled how the techniques are those same ones used by the anti-gun or global warming skeptic crowd (among others). So it’s no surprise at all to find out the Academic behind […]

How to Reduce the Odds of Being Ticketed During a Traffic Stop

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

I don’t get pulled over often at all despite the occasional deserving of it but reading How to Reduce the Odds of Being Ticketed During a Traffic Stop tells me I’ve been doing it right all these years. Largely, I suspect, of my close working relationship with LEO’s a couple decades back…. Experienced driver or […]

Amazon Accused of Cheating Customers

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

OK so this woman is accusing Amazon of cheating Prime customers by “encouraging” them to pack shipping charges onto the item price so they can list shipping as free. First, apparently the nanny state should protect us from our own lack of caveat emptor. Second, she must have only recently jumped off the turnip truck […]

U.S. Government Announces $2 Billion Bailout of Blockbuster?

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

I seriously hope this is satire or a really bad joke. Bailing out a company technology made obsolete is something pols would do assuming the CEO is of the same political stripe… therefore I’ll file it under Liberal Madness just in case.

Student bitten in face by Pit Bulls dogs

Monday, October 7th, 2013

The initial report was that the student was bitten in face by pitbulls then animal control says, no those were Rottweilers so they change the headline from Pit Bulls to dogs… All guns are AR15’s – all dogs that bite someone are Pit Bulls – unless they’re not then they’re just “dogs”…. This is why […]

RIP Tom Clancy: Dead at age 66

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Tom Clancy’s original works are still among my favorite reads.  Red October, Red Storm Rising, Cardinal of the Kremlin and Without Remorse being my favorites and Clear and Present Danger being probably my least favorite. Today ‘The Hunt for Red October’ author Tom Clancy dies at age 66.

Bikers terrorize family in high-speed chase

Monday, September 30th, 2013

These aren’t “bikers” they’re hoodlums. This is NYC, most other parts of the country such behavior would have resulted in one or more cases of justifiable homicide by the driver of the SUV. Multiple coverage, second article covers more info about the driver’s 911 call during the whole ordeal. SEE IT: Pack of motorcyclists chase […]
