Bumper Stickers - Maine - Bears

There’s a Bear in the Woods

Posted by  ▪  November 29, 2014

And this driver can see it.

Saw this recently in Hancock County, Maine. The plethora of bear stickers are in response to a referendum that would outlaw 93% of bear hunting in Maine. (http://www.maine.gov/ifw/wildlife/species/mammals/2014BearReferendum.html) As someone who has had a bear destroy property in my backyard very close to my house, I am of the opinion that an overpopulation…

As usual, Black Friday was a total mess

Posted by  ▪  November 28, 2014

Hold my earrings, guys. It’s about to get REAL.

Another Black Friday is (almost) behind us, and while I’m 90% certain that no one has been trampled to death this year (yet,) things got a little crazy (read: completely insane) at retail outlets across the country. Authorities said two women got into a pushing and shoving match — with at least…

No, Prosecution did not Mislead #Ferguson Grand Jury into Erroneous Decision

Posted by  ▪  November 28, 2014

Lawrence O’Donnell ignores that Darren Wilson’s strong claim of lawful self-defense was more than sufficient to prevent indictment

There have been many false factual narratives of the Michael Brown killing, such as “hands up, don’t shoot.” Now there’s a new false legal narrative spreading, that a prosecutorial mistake misled the Grand Jury into erroneously failing to indict Police Officer Darren Wilson. The source of the claim appears to be MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. O’Donnell,…

Justice—for whom?

Posted by  ▪  November 28, 2014

Slogans are not what it’s all about

Let’s take a look at the classic depiction of Justice: She wears a blindfold. And not because it’s Halloween. It’s because: Lady Justice (Latin: Iustitia, the Roman goddess of Justice, who is equivalent to the Greek goddesses Themis and Dike) is an allegorical personification of the moral force in judicial systems. …Lady…

The False Equivalence in The New York Times Coverage of P5+1 Nuclear Talks with Iran

A post-mortem about the recently concluded P5+1 nuclear talks with Iran in The New York Times made a false equivalence between the two sides. In the end, both were constrained by hard-line politics at home. Mr. Zarif, while friendly, outgoing and Westernized, had pushed to the very limits of his brief; he…

How do you reason with such disturbed people?

We are dealing with some really sick minds when it comes to the proponents of the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement propaganda machine. The latest is from a group with over 91,000 Facebook fans, called “I Acknowledge Apartheid Exists.” That phrase is an integral part of the BDS movement, which falsely seeks…

#Ferguson Eye Witness Intimidation: Chilling Details

Posted by  ▪  November 28, 2014

“I Googled my name and I seen my picture, and it said like snitches get stitches. Been nervous and scared.”

The official transcript of the Ferguson Grand Jury continues to be fascinating as I chug my way past the 20% reading mark. A portion of the current eye witness testimony before me, that of Interview #4 taken on September 17 , was particularly engaging however. The reason? It shows in visceral detail some…

A war we cannot afford to lose.

You may not be aware that Dana Loesch of The Blaze makes videos. This new Thanksgiving related spot is pretty funny. In what should come as a surprise to no one, Loesch isn’t a fan of fake turkey. I couldn’t agree more. Would you believe Tofurky has been around for 20 years? Emanuella Grinberg…

Before there was #Ferguson, there was #Occupy

Posted by  ▪  November 27, 2014

A little too similar, maybe?

The Ferguson protesters have proven themselves to be destructive, violent, and completely uninterested in anything having to do with “justice.” Not only are they okay with this assessment—they’re completely proud of it. In fact, they’re beginning to look an awful lot like another “justice movement” we got to know quite well a…
