Marijuana tax windfall for schools – Political News | Irish & International Politics | The Irish Times – Thu, Apr 24, 2014

There are lots of arguments for decriminalization and even legalization of marijuana on an even larger scale. For one, it would take a burden off our already overtaxed police departments. Also, it would take the bulk of street crime out of the marijuana business. Third, like liquor, it could generate a significant amount of taxes. […]

Rapist to be stoned to death

This is not to condone capital punishment, but we do find it different that for once, it seems that the rapist and not the victim is being punished. We’re not saying that the death penalty necessarily is a good deterrent to crime, but certainly the thought of being stoned to death for rape and other […]

Killer texts father to claim ‘last laugh’ after murdering man’s daughter

We don’t know all the details here but suffice it to say, for the most part, our laws do not adequately protect women from stalkers and violent, manipulative men.

America breeding family political dynasties

Bush. Kennedy. Nothing personal and this is not to denigrate anyone’s ability but do you see a pattern here? Interesting that the so-called founding fathers claimed to abhor the idea of a monarchy or inherited government here but it seems that some families have been able to make their way to political office through coronation.

Koch brothers-backed group use misleading Aurora shootings related photo in political ad

We understand desperation drives people to do less than stand up things. But, is the mood of these people born of desperation or sheer glee in being mean spirited?

Supreme Court rules against victim of child porn

We’re sure there are some complex “constitutional” matters at work here that place this ruling in a realm of understanding that is beyond us.
