Constitution 101 - The First Amendment

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 23, 2006

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances." Constitution of the United States Amendment 1 Ratified 1791 Matt Lauer and the rest of the main-scream media, along with the ACLU and most Americans in general are positively clueless as to what the above quote means. After reading it carefully, then re-reading it even more carefully, it can be broken down and analyzed,... (more)

What Is The Point

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 19, 2006

Yesterday (Saturday, November 18) an 18-year-old man was gunned down in a driveway in El Monte. Sheriff's deputies ruled the shooting "gang related" and began a man-hunt (or would it be "person-hunt" since one of the three shooters is female?) for three individuals. As of now, I have not heard whether or not there are any new developments in this story. One question that keeps coming back to my mind in all of this is, "What was the point?" Why would three people pull up along side a pedestrian and open fire on the guy? Are the shooters lost in their own little world where they can randomly... (more)

Tasing Incident Provokes Gathering

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 18, 2006

Friday, on the campus of UCLA there was a gathering of students wishing to voice their opinions regarding the Tuesday night tasing of a student who refused to show his Bruin Card to a Community Service Officer. One student was caught on tape saying, “We don’t feel safe on our own campus.” Numerous reviews of the video recorded during the incident confirm only these facts: The student was belligerent with police, the student screamed very loudly, the student shouted, “here’s your f*****g Patriot Act!”, the student “claims” he was tasered for no reason and that he was leaving... (more)

The Levee Is About To Break

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 17, 2006

Remember back before the election I made mention that illegal immigrants were going to start pouring over the border like floodwaters over a New Orleans levee? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the first breech of the American International border with Mexico. This is an artist’s rendition of a stretch of what will be known as TTC-35. This superhighway is in the works right now by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) known as the “Trans-Texas Corridor.” It is slated to parallel the existing Interstate 35, which currently runs from the US/Mexico border at Laredo, Texas north... (more)

Paper Thin

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 16, 2006

As often happens in houses, magazines of all sorts will start to pile up somewhere and wait until the time comes when the sight of the pile becomes more than the homeowner can bear. As the process of sorting the magazines begins, it becomes very difficult to not peruse the magazines with eye catching cover titles. The cover of one particular Hollywood magazine screamed the headline, “Too Thin?” The cover featured photographs of Kate Bosworth and Nicole Richie, both of whom have shed enough weight that between the two of them, they couldn’t activate the pressure switch on the automatic... (more)

First Challenge to Jessica’s Law

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 9, 2006

It hasn’t been a full 48 hours since the votes were tallied and already there is a challenge to California’s new sexual predator law, known as Jessica’s Law. An unnamed registered sex offender has filed a complaint about the new sexual predator law in California and already a judge has issued an injunction to stop the law from going into effect. The offender contends that the law is unfair because, according to the law, he has to wear a GPS bracelet for the rest of his life. His argument is that he has already paid his debt to society and therefore he should be exempt from the law because... (more)

The Most Dangerous Woman in the United States

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 8, 2006

There she is, the most dangerous woman in America, Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco with the motto of the Democratic Party emblazoned on a projector screen. The New Direction, of course, is right into the toilet and straight on to hell. One nice thing about the United States of America is that American voters get the government they deserve. If they are stupid enough to fall for the lies and smears of the Democrats, then they deserve the shaft they are going to get. Time and time again, every effort has been made to present the truth and facts about this election, however, at every turn, the... (more)

“Tomorrow is election day…”

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 7, 2006

“Must get out and vote if you…” “Patriotic Duty…” “Get the government we deserve…” As my favorite radio commentator, Larry Elder, would say, “Yadda, blah, etc.”. Yes, tomorrow is Election Day and I have said all I plan to about the election. I cannot make anyone go to the polls and vote. Voting is a conscious effort that must be engaged by the voter and no one else. So no more grabbing you by the collar and screaming into your face about how vitally important it is that you vote. I’m going to vote and I’m sure the timbre of my past columns has pretty much set... (more)

Sadam Hussein Convicted

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 6, 2006

Sometime between 1:07 a.m. and 8:06 p.m. Sunday, it was announced that Saddam Hussein will be hanged for his role in the 1982 killings of 148 people in a single Shiite town after an attempt on his life. Of the eight total people in this particular trial, only one, Mohammed Azawi Ali was acquitted due to lack of evidence. For all of those who believed that this was a crock trial set up by the United States to get Hussein, one has to wonder why all seven weren't convicted. Interestingly enough, it was brought to my attention that over 650,000 Iraqis have died since Hussein was forced out of... (more)

Hussein Verdict To Come Down Today

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 5, 2006

It seems that Saddam Hussein, in spite of all of the setbacks of his trial, is set to be sentenced today. How interesting. The accompanying photo (at left) shows the deposed dictator of Iraq quite well dressed in his suit coat, with no tie. However, the eyes give him a look of incredulity.

It is as if he cannot comprehend what is about to happen here. It would be a hilarious photograph if it were in a Halloween movie and he had just heard a "bump" in another room of the house. He could even be a stand-in for Eli Wallach in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. (Except in the parody I... (more)
