Oh, The Humanity!

Oh, The Humanity!

A half-dozen terrorists in line to be extradited to the USA to face charges tried to get out of it by arguing that if convicted, they’d be subject to inhumane conditions at the Colorado Supermax prison. Lawyers for radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza and five other men indicted in the U.S. on various terror charges between 1999 […]

Revisiting The O.K. Corral

Revisiting The O.K. Corral

In 2011, the Monument Fire ripped through the Huachuca Mountains in Arizona—land belonging to the U.S. Forest Service.  Following the fire, floods and torrential mudslides destroyed mountain spring water lines to the town of Tombstone.

So You Don’t Want To Vote For Romney…

Patriots, it’s pretty inevitable at this point that the GOP will nominate a RINO for president.  We’re stuck with the cards in our hand. I understand the temptation to sit out the election or split off and create our own party.  I get it.  I really do.  But the reality is, if we do that […]

This week, a post on a new blog appeared that supports a teacher’s strike in three East Multnomah County school districts.

    Someone just paid $1.1 million for a tear-down/fixer-upper in Mountain View, California. That’s not really news, as prices in Silicon Valley have been increasingly outrageous. What’s news is that they bought the house with the provisos that the existing owner will get to live there for seven years; the buyer didn’t get to see the […]
