I’ve seen politicians propose all sorts of well-intentioned but ill-conceived legislation. Florida’s CS/HB 89 “Threatened Use of Force” bill is a prime example: The Florida legislature is considering expanding the state’s “stand your ground” law to encompass “threatened use of force.” Specifically, the bill is intended to shield those who brandish a gun or fire a […]
This is one of those songs says more in four and half minutes than a 10,000 word editorial ever could; you either get it or you don’t… and if you don’t, I feel sorry for you.
I’ve been enjoying something of an extended hiatus from blogging. It’s not that I’ve lost interest it’s just that thanks to the policy decisions made by the nit wits in Hartford and Washington D.C.

Yeah, I said it, and I mean it… Bill O’Reilly is a pinhead. I’m a little late getting to this, but I can’t let this ill-informed rant by Mr. O’Reilly pass without comment. Look I’m not a Bill O’Reilly fan, I think he’s the worst kind of self-important, self-righteous, populist bully and, as this video […]
I have to admit I’m plesentantly surpised by the Supreme Courts ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller (07-290). The court, in my opinion, got it more or less right.
