Heather Heyer

I was not able to catch the memorial service of Heather Heyer until after the fact. It was a beautiful event. She was by all accounts, a great American. She gave her life for the virtues and values that make America great, as the pledge says, one nation under GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. To quote her father, “She loved people; she wanted equality,” he said. “On the day of her passing, she wanted to put down hate.” That stands in contrast to the terrorist leader, Justin Moore, the leader of the Grand Dragon for the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in North Carolina. "He was sorta glad people got hit and that girl died because they were communists opposed to free speech", he declared to Fox News. I think choosing sides is an easy exercise here. May GOD give us all the courage to stand up for justice. Read more

Income Inequality is the latest distraction from the real problem

Bait and Switch Still Works The hard left has a rallying cry. America is being victimized by rising income inequality. The 1% are oppressing the rest of us by virtue of being successful, they contend. I believe that is poppycock. How much Bill makes is none of your business unless he is taking it from you. If Bill creates something or provides some service/product that someone is willing to pay, Bill should be able to get whatever the market will bear. The thieves are those who would steal from Bill for redistribution. It does not matter whether it is a robber with gun or a tax collector with a CAC because Bill still unjustly loses his money. Sure it may not be "fair" that Bill makes billions and Joe makes thousands, but it is not fair that Joe did not give as much economic value to society as Bill. Why didn't Joe transform the world like Bill Gates did? Using the current dipolar Read more

"I saw the officer go down and the other police officers drew their Read more

Police Body Cameras Coming to Maryland

Delaware Grapples with Issue While the state works to set standards for the cameras, Baltimore and 22 communities have moved forward. Baltimore is set to start a pilot program in November and roll out the full program in 2016. State civil libertarians and local police groups are battling over what gets to be made public and when. Police groups want certain exemptions from FOIA for the recordings to avoid jeopardizing cases and expensive long term storage. In Delaware, there is a quiet review, some view it as when and how not if the cameras will become part of state policing. The state NAACP is advocating their use once privacy and other concerns are taken into account. In a December 22, 2014 joint press statement with the NAACP, Secretary Schiliro issued the following: “We know the use of body cameras is inevitable and we view these cameras as a positive step that can Read more
