Key Issue Review - June 27, 2007

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 28, 2007

The Bay County Florida Sheriff has found a new way to make sure his does not become a sanctuary county. He is stirring up thumb-sucking liberals who don’t like it when American law enforcement agencies look for lawbreakers and arrest them when they are found. Sheriff Frank McKeithen created an illegal alien task force in April for the sole purpose of rounding up illegal aliens and turning them over to INS for investigation and deportation. The task force works simply by sending six or seven patrol cars to a construction site. When the cars arrive, the ones who drop everything and take off... (more)

Senate Steps Further Out of Touch

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 27, 2007

It would appear that the years of alcohol abuse have finally begun to manifest themselves into a total inability to think properly. Senator Edward M. Kennedy is so far out of touch with America that his drinking habits are the only plausible explanation – there’s no way he could possibly be this stupid. Or could he? It seems that even the president himself is missing the boat on the current, hotly debated immigration bill. You read that right, I, D. E. Carson, your loveable conservative voice of common sense am actually criticizing George W. Bush and even willing to utter the “i” word... (more)

Evan Beats Bruce

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 25, 2007

The sequel to Bruce Almighty outshines the original. Evan Almighty opened this weekend and it is far better than its predecessor. In case you don't remember, In the original, Jim Carrey played Bruce Nolan a man upset with how God (Morgan Freeman) was running the universe, so God gave Bruce the opportunity to be in charge for a while. Steve Carell played television news reporter Evan Baxter in a supporting role. However, Carell's performance was so memorable, that the sequel was thankfully written for him and not Carrey. When we catch up with Evan Baxter (Carell), he has just been elected... (more)

Do You Want To Know a Secret?

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 24, 2007

Every day a man drives his beat up old car by the local Lincoln dealership. Sitting on the corner by the driveway is a brand new, white Lincoln Town Car. The man looks at that car and thinks to himself, I will own that very car in four days. His plan is drawn up, he is waiting for a commission check for $50,000 that will allow him to pay cash for the car and drive it home. The commission check, however, is two and a half weeks past due. The debtor who owes him the money cannot be reached – that phone is disconnected. Letters of inquiry have been returned to him stamped “Return to sender... (more)

Court Order Puts Squeeze On Racers

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 22, 2007

Southern California has always been associated with cars. In the 60’s the Beach Boys sang about Chevrolet Impalas (409), Coupes (Little Deuce Coupe) and Ford Thunderbirds (Fun Fun Fun). Jan and Dean told us about The Little Old Lady From Pasadena and her super stock Dodge. In the 1950’s, the Antelope Valley was home to hot rodders who liked to test their creations on dry lakebeds. Today, however, souping up a car and racing it in the street is a crime and it is punishable in a new way. In the Inland Empire, illegal street racers were treated to a sight a judge hopes they won’t forget.... (more)

Build More Refineries? Why Bother?

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 18, 2007

George W. Bush needs to leave the environmental issues to the tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, bong smoking, hippie freaks. So does Congress for that matter. It seems that while we’re all running around harping on immigration and how the latest versions of the amnesty bill are still not what the people want, Congress and the White House have been hammering out legislation to require the use of biofuels that will cut America’s consumption of pure gasoline. Oil industry executives are seeing the government trying to cut their profits, not by regulating the price of gasoline, but by mandating... (more)

Nancy Drew Very Few But Worth The Time

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 17, 2007

The movie Nancy Drew opened this weekend and at the particular theater where I watched it, there were a whopping nine people in the whole house -- including myself. This was a far cry from the full house I encountered when I went to see Surf's Up last weekend. But Nancy Drew held my attention much better. The star of Nancy Drew is the niece of Julia Roberts, Emma Roberts. She is slowly coming into her own as an actor and certainly doesn't need any help from Aunt Julia. She handles the out-of-place title character quite well in this updated version of the classic mystery books. I was actually... (more)

Big Hopes Are A Little Rusty

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 16, 2007

The year is 1957. Dwight D. Eisenhower is president. Disneyland has only been open two years. Russians launch Sputnik, beating America into space. Regular leaded gasoline sells for $0.24/gallon and in the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, a group of people is burying a time capsule to be opened in the year 2007 as part of Oklahoma’s centennial celebration. But this is no ordinary time capsule. Near the intersection of 5th Street and Denver Avenue in downtown Tulsa a huge concrete vault was constructed to hold a most unusual time capsule. The star of this capsule is a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere two-door... (more)

Nifong to Resign, Will Jackson Follow Suit?

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 16, 2007

Durham County, North Carolina district attorney Mike Nifong announced today his intention to resign under scrutiny for his gross mishandling of the Duke Lacrosse rape case. “My community has suffered enough,” Nifong said through tears at his ethics trial. Attorney Joseph Cheshire, who represented Dave Evans, one of the three accused, doesn’t buy Nifong’s sincerity, calling it “a cynical ploy to save his law license” and that the apology is “far too little and comes far too late.” The whole case teetered on whether or not Nifong withheld exculpatory evidence, which could have... (more)

Just Don't Blame the Fat Kids

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 15, 2007

Kellogg, the world’s largest manufacturer of breakfast cereal has announced that it intends to raise the nutritional value of its breakfast cereals. Kellogg announced that it plans to reformulate the cereals by the end of 2008 and not market them to children under the age of 12. This all in response to a threatened lawsuit from nutrition advocacy groups and the parents of fat kids. Oh, I’m sorry, did I just say “Fat Kids”? Reports have been issued over the last 10 – 15 years indicating that the number of fat kids is increasing. The problem with this is that fat kids grow up into... (more)
