Poll: What’s the best way to deal with the census?

I haven’t posted in the last few days, and I apologize. I’ve been laying low. A census worker came to my house because I didn’t turn in the form they mailed to me, so I had to hide. They even went next door to see if my neighbors would rat me out, but they (thankfully) … Continue reading

The Freedom of the Oppress

Well, Rand Paul apparently has a problem saying on television the same sort of thing he’ll have published in a newspaper. In 2002, he wrote a letter to the Bowling Green Daily News to criticize the paper for endorsing the Fair Housing Act. From the letter: “A recent Daily News editorial supported the Federal Fair … Continue reading

Civil Rights vs. Civil Liberties

Rand Paul (Ron Paul’s son) was just chosen as the Republican nominee for the Senate in Kentucky, and he’s hit the ground running. He’s already getting a lot of press for some controversial opinions that he’s expressed, which as we all know is free publicity. He’s getting this free coverage for saying that he believes … Continue reading

Poll: What should be the new slogan for Arizona tourism?

Arizona is being besieged by boycott after boycott since they passed SB1070 (the bill that requires law enforcement to check the papers of anyone they suspect is an illegal alien and detain them if they can’t prove that they’re legal). So it’s no wonder that there’s now an effort to rebrand Arizona and explain why … Continue reading

Separate But Equal

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed another wrongly-controversial bill into law. On April 23 she signed SB1070, which is the Arizona law that mandates that law enforcement officers check the papers of anyone who looks illegal. Now, on May 11, she’s signed a bill banning ethnic studies in Arizona schools. What this means is that … Continue reading

Theory and Practice

Well, according to one of Kagan’s old friends, she’s not gay. Says Sarah Walzer: “I’ve known her for most of her adult life and I know she’s straight. She dated men when we were in law school, we talked about men — who in our class was cute, who she would like to date, all … Continue reading

Elena Kagan…or Nae Ken, A Gal

Well, Obama has chosen his nominee to replace Justice Stevens: Elena Kagan. And I have to tell you, people are angry. And this time, it’s not just Tea Partiers. The left is angry because they are afraid that Obama has nominated a crypto-conservative. As Jane Hamsher (of firedoglake.com) said: “I object to appointment somebody that … Continue reading

Poll: Why does the Obama Administration insist on giving Miranda Rights to Terrorists?

We got lucky this time. Accused Times Square almost-bomber Faisal Shazbot is apparently still talking to authorities after he learned that (as someone arrested in America) he has Miranda rights. But he doesn’t have to keep talking. Part of the Miranda warning is a reminder that the Fifth Amendment says that you can refuse to … Continue reading

Guilt and dissociation

More details are emerging about what Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) will actually propose in his push to allow the stripping of citizenship from disloyal Americans. His proposal will be an update of current US law to address the needs of this new war. Title 8, Chapter 12, Subchapter III, Part III, §1481 of the US … Continue reading

Civil Rights are for the Civil

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) has his priorities straight. After the arrest of the failed Times Square terrorist bomber, he said: “If you’ve joined an enemy of the United States in attacking the United States and trying to kill Americans, I think you should sacrifice your rights of citizenship … It just seems to me if … Continue reading
