The issue that I have with this annexation has nothing to do with the family who owns that land. To me, it is ... Full Story

Even in the most egregious examples of misconduct and bad policing, officers are found not guilty in court (if they even stand trial in the first place) and are free to return to duty… re-armed to potentially cause more harm in the future. This pattern is a serious miscarriage of justice. By refusing to ... Full Story

“Nine out of the 10 poorest states are Red states

Pro-Democrat group says 9 of the 10 poorest states are Republican The partisan blogosphere is filled with arguments over whether liberal or conservative policies are better for states.

But we were struck by this claim posted by the pro-Democrat group Occupy Democrats on Facebook: "If Republican economic ... Full Story
