He seems to have screwed up the same things I did. 1. I was certain that an all female jury would find Zimmerman guilty. I even mistook their 16+ hour deliberation as a sign that they were doing their best to find Zimmerman guilty of SOMETHING. But I was wrong and I am glad I […]
I am glad I was wrong on this one: I predicted that George Zimmerman would be convicted, even though his acquittal should have been a no-brainer. In spite of the overwhelming pile of evidence i his favor, the deck was stacked against Zimmerman: (1) the Governor–Richard Scott–caved to pressure from the Obama Administration and the […]
The tragedy here–other than the unfortunate death of Trayvon Martin–is that George Zimmerman is even on trial for the death. I have no joy over the demise of the 17-year-old Martin. I do not celebrate the pain of his parents or family. It is easy to see where one would want someone to pay for […]
If this was just about the evidence, it should be a no brainer: George Zimmerman should walk. This case should not even be in court. The prosecution has no case, the evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of Zimmerman, and the reasonable doubt in his favor is so wide I could land a Boeing 777 on […]
On Friday night, the FBI called a press conference–with the Boston PD and told us: (a) The Boston Marathon bombers are both accounted for; (2) they are brothers, raised in Idaho; (3) they were Tea Party activists, the older brother being a teacher at First Baptist Church; (4) they were planning additional attacks on abortion […]
and you can expect to get raided by police and child protection authorities. Well, at least if you live in the butt crack of America (aka New Jersey). My question: where is Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) in this mess?
In one of the most valiant efforts at attacking windmills, Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) is trying to ban the production of ammunition magazines with 3-D printers. Aside from the Constitutional issues–Rep. Israel’s efforts are an infringement not just on the Second Amendment, but also the First Amendment–this is an exercise in both futility and stupidity. […]
My fellow Americans, First, let me take this time to express profound sorrow and empathy for the families of the children, teachers, and school staff who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It is an absolute catastrophe that any child–let alone twenty–would be forced to leave this world through such a violent, cowardly, unconscionable […]
In the wake of various high-profile mass shootings–the Aurora, CO theater, the Oregon Mall, Sandy Hook, and the assault on the New York firemen–President Obama has sought to impose a “meaningful ban on assault weapons”, ostensibly to keep them off the street. If that were his true intention, he has already failed miserably. Over the […]
from Professor Hale: I already specifically look for the label “not legal in California” before I buy a firearm. If it’s legal in California, I don’t really want it. Yep.
