And the rats. For as long as I live, I’ll never forget the behemoth rats that could be heard from two stories up,... (more)

Early Marriage High Horse, Healthcare Informants, & Not About Philosophy

By FMeekins, published on Aug 10, 2009

The real victim of the run in between Harvard malcontent Henry Louis Gates and officer James Crowley may actually be the poor woman making the call to police. For her efforts at being a good citizen, she has been labeled a racist and received various threats. At least the policeman is permitted to carry a gun and pepper spray. At her press conference, she should have made it clear that this would be the last time she ever lifts a finger for anyone in her COMMUNITY.

The Hangover

By DLFerguson, published on Jun 15, 2009

...bathroom, a baby in the closet, a chicken casually strolling around, Stu missing a tooth and Doug just plain missing. Phil, Stu and Alan valiantly sober up and set out on a day long odyssey through Las Vegas, following the most improbable of clues (when and how in the hell did they steal a police car?) as they struggle to piece together exactly what happened the night before and find Doug to get him to his wedding on time. Assuming of course that things didn’t get too out of hand and poor Doug is lying dead face down in a ditch somewhere. Which is a distinct possibility... (more)

Lakers Deserve Win. L. A. Doesn't

By D. E. Carson, published on Jun 15, 2009

...were bonfires all over the place, an LAPD cruiser got torched and businesses were looted.

The only act of class that came out of that entire evening was when Shaquille O’Neal voluntarily donated $50,000 of his own money to the City of Los Angeles to replace that one torched police car. He didn’t have to do that, but because Shaq is a nice guy, he hoped that his act of kindness would permeate the city.

Yeah, right. It’s no wonder he got the hell out of town when he had the chance. This place isn’t worth it.

Then here it is nine... (more)

People Of Dresden: Barack Obama - Welcome, Mr. President !

By Andreas Klamm, published on Jun 5, 2009

... 2008.

It is sad that most people in the city of Dresden which do welcome Barack Obama and which do love the U.S. President will have no chance to get in close contact with him or might have the chance to see their favorite U.S. President.

More than 7000 German Police officers, the German Military, Special Forces, the U.S. Secret Service and fighter airplanes are going to protect the President and will cause to separate the audience of the President from the people which do like him.

Mr. Obama is planning to visit on Friday also the Landstuhl ... (more)

Public Opinion & Voter Turn Out

By Christopher Wager, published on May 12, 2009

...Turnout Rates for Voting-Age Population (VAP) and Eligible Population (VEP)

In conclusion, opinion will continue to play an ever-growing role in the future outcome of our democracy. With the help and encouragement of our elected officials, the citizenry must police itself in the area of voter participation on all levels. One cannot sit back and rest on the false security that their best interests are being looked after.

Cultures Clash The Trials Of Living With Wealthy Newcomers

They often talk of the "bad old days" even though they never lived here then and imagine a wild land of black and Latino people ruling the earth and victimized whites cowering at home watching Charles Bronson movies. But I actually lived here and I think of it as the great 70's and 80's when people respected each other, did not look to police to solve minute conflicts between people and I didn't feel like a stranger in my own neighborhood.
