The perverted incentive of civil forfeiture

We’ve all heard the stories. The cops pull someone over and find a large amount of cash. They suspect drug-running so they seize the cash. The person tries to get his money back but to no avail. It’s called civil forfeiture. It happens far too often and it needs to stop.

Blaming those who exercise free speech

You probably heard about the Muhammad cartoon contest in Garland, TX. Two gunmen were shot dead by police outside the event after they wounded a security guard. Although the gunmen were the terrorists it was the organizer of the event, Pamela Geller, who took the brunt of the criticism. Geller is the founder of the American Freedom Defense Initiative. Her group sponsored the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest.

What’s the point?

At some point you have to start wondering what the point was of putting the Republicans in charge of the House and Senate. I know, it could be a lot worse with Democrats able to pass anything they like but, as it stands, Republicans are doing very little to undo the damage that was done by Democrats when they could.

Cruz new face of Hispanics?

I happened to be standing in the lobby of a car wash when Sen. Ted Cruz was making his presidential announcement speech at Liberty University. Someone in the room muttered, "He’s crazy." I hear that a lot. It’s a sentiment repeated by people who have no actual knowledge of Ted Cruz or what he stands for. People who say this are simply repeating what they’ve heard in the mainstream media, the same mainstream media that are, quite frankly, scared to death of Ted Cruz.
