Al-Qaeda’s Law Firm

Much has already been written of the U.S. Supreme Court’s lawless, nonsensical decision in Boumediene v.

The incident happened shortly after 11:20 this morning after they left a courthouse in northwestern Pennsylvania, on their way to lunch.

Their vehicle burst into flames shortly after they exited the car, sending a large, thick plume of smoke that was visible for a half-mile. Explosions from the vehicle’s front tires sent smoldering rubber and debris across a wide area.

Use Radiation Like Porcupines Make Love, Very Carefully

It’s said that elephants never forget. Neither does radiation. The human body has a natural computer that tabulates every bit of radiation to which it is exposed during a lifetime. Radiation has great benefits in diagnosing disease when used wisely, but potentially harmful when used carelessly. So how much risk is there of developing   radiation-induced cancer?

Freedom is Our Birthright!

America and Canada are going to Hell in a hand basket, very rapidly.  Europe has gone socialist and along with the United Nations, each is trying to undo 200-plus years of freedom on the North American continent.  We may all go broke in a decade or so if we continue on the present course that is being chartered for us by our out-of-control, clueless leaders, who promote socialism and radical environmentalism instead of individual freedom, as is their solemn duty.

A Socialist by Any Other Name

One of the consequences of being right in an age of lies is that it brands you as a radical.  Remember that being an extremist doesn’t mean you’re wrong, but simply that your views deviate greatly from those of the mainstream.
