What do you call the fact that she knew the victim, had opportunity, finger prints on the knife, has told a story and then recanted it? There may be reasonable doubt but I haven't heard it.

This is an example of something I have said many times, Give the American people a good idea, in this case environmentalism and they will drive it to the ridiculous. Environmentalism was a good idea in the 1960s but zealots have long since passed the point of reasonableness. When those of us, in the 1960s, were railing against dumping raw sewage into rivers and factories spewing gases, from smoke stacks, into the air, most of us were oblivious to taking a 5 acre tract in an existing metropolis, for a few extra buildings. The government has long since surpassed it's usefulness in this regard. Probably half or more of the current regulations should be repealed in favor of stringent enforcement of the remaining statutes. It's gov. gone awry.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and she is holding it up for person's to view. I have no problem with either. What I do have a problem with is that Democrats' agenda is to ban all firearms and it has been decided that the "Evil Black Rifle" is easiest to attack. It is unattractive, holds many rounds and is not used by knowledgeable hunters who want the best tool for the objective. It is durable, reliable, lighter to carry and for some reason has a "cool" factor. It was chosen by the military because the lighter ammunition was easier to carry. It didn't hurt, in their opinion, that the gas operated cycle had less recoil. It might even have been considered to be easier to carry and shoot by women who were about to enter the military.

Is Disability the New Welfare?

Without becoming to verbose, I am a retired physician. In my years of practice, I had hundreds of people come in and want disability certification. When I declined to certify them, most went around the corner and got someone else to do it. The government caused it by making it too easy; The lawyers could get my cat disability; Too many doctors signed disability claim forms. The French said we would kill the goose that laid golden eggs!

Middle East 'Democracy'

I believe in democracy so long as it is restrained by law. A true democracy is when every citizen can vote on every law. Not only is that not practical but in the words of Alexis Tocqueville might lead to tyranny by the masses. One of the ways to prevent that is to have a representative republic, who governs by rule of law. The problem with a representative democracy is that the representative may or may not do what is prescribed by law or, in the long run, good for the republic. What we need is integrity; Senators and Representatives who will vote for the long term good of all the people consistent with the law. Integrity has become a hard thing to come by and even harder to recognize. As I understand it, declaring war is a function of con
