America’s Military General Worship

Via WRSA, from Matt Bracken. I have no doubt he was promised something for this bit is silliness.  No one actually believes those things about Hillary Clinton.  With the corruption, Uranium One, the misadventures in Haiti, and the trail of dead bodies lining the streets from Arkansas to Washington, D.C., everyone knows all about the Clintons.  This isn’t hard.  It’s also not difficult to believe that no one in the audience believed a word of his speech.  The more difficult thing is to understan...

Tyrant Cop Threatens Open Carrier In Florida

I have several observations. First, the “commander” is an asshole. Second, they don’t know the law the way they should. Third, and I’ll say this for the hundredth time, muzzle flagging people like cops do is dangerous to life. Fourth, listen again to the “commander’s” words.  Any time someone says that they support the second amendment, but … you know they’re lying. Fifth, it’s good to see folks in Florida challenging the cops.  These 2A audits are becoming a thing.  I like that.  A man has n...

Mike DeWine On Gun Control

David Codrea: “Principled Statesman Mike DeWine Endorsed by Brady Campaign,” the headline read. “While many politicians pander to ideologically out of touch special interests, Mike DeWine does the hard work on bread and butter issues and defends the rights of the majority,” the flack piece continued. “DeWine was a leader in the fight against legislation that called for special rights for gun dealers and manufacturers facing gun violence victims trying to hold them accountable for negligence.” Th...

Arkansas CopWatch Gets Detained For Open Carry

Arkansas CopWatch gets stopped for open carry.  I thought this was a settled issue in Arkansas?  Anyway, it’s good to see folks conducting 2A audits, and more specifically, open carry audits.

Violence And Blood Lead Levels

No, I’m not kidding. More than half of the people who were perpetrators or victims of gun violence in Milwaukee in recent years had elevated blood lead levels as children, according to a study released Friday by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The study of nearly 90,000 residents, conducted at the University’s Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health, suggests a link between early childhood lead exposure and gun violence in later years. Lindsay R. Emer, the study’s lead author, said it wa...

Claiming a Process Rather than a Mere Principle

by Dennis Crouch The USPTO is maintaining an updated set of “select eligibility cases” (xlsx file) that the Office sees as useful guidance for its examiners.  Of these, the only 19th Century case is Tilghman v. Proctor, 102 U.S. 707 (1881). In Tilghman, the Supreme Court sided with the patentee — holding that that the claimed process of obtaining free fatty acids and glycerine from fatty bodies to be patent eligible. Claim: I claim, as of my invention, the manufacturing of fat acids and glyceri...

Jury Trial vs Judge in City Court

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of:Texas. I received a citation for use of cell phone in a school zone. I wasn't texting or talking. Had google maps going through my Apple Watch. According to what I have read, this is not considered a violation. It will be my word vs the officers. I should go about proving this? Should I go with a jury trial?

Custody and Visitation Issues: Visitation Court Order is Flawed

My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Delaware. I will try to give as much details as I can without making this a novel. My wife and I are currently separated and have been separated for a year. During our separation I was able to talk to our two children every day and see them four times or five times a week.

Government to Allow Less Lead in Drinking Water

EPA is expected to publish this week in the Federal Register the first proposed regulatory revisions to the National Primary Drinking Water Regulation for lead in more than 30 years. The United States has made tremendous progress in lowering children’s blood lead levels (.. children are a good data set analogous to the broader population). As a result of multiple Federal laws, including the 1973 phase-out of lead in automobile gasoline, the 1978 Federal regulation banning lead paint for resident...

Loaner Car, No Signed Agreement

My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Connecticut I have a loaner car (2102, 99+k miles, fair condition) that was given to me w/o me signing the loaner agreement.

Competitor’s objection stalls San Francisco falafel shop

Unlike most cities, San Francisco follows a land use practice called “discretionary review,” which “allows anybody to appeal any permit for any reason (or no reason) and force a public hearing in front of the famously arbitrary Planning Commission.” A falafel shop wanted an ordinarily straightforward change of use permit to open in a vacant storefront on Castro Street, but an incumbent gyro shop on the same block filed an objection which will succeed in delaying the opening for months. The whole...

Your Very Own Harrier Jet: This Jet Will Go Down In History As One Of The All Time Great Classic British Aircraft

China 2050: The Future Of China According To A Photographer Benoit Cezard

Benoit Cezard said his inspiration came from a viewpoint that China would surpass the U.S. to be the NO.1 power in the world in 2050.

Have you heard of the catastrophic men theory of history? Step forward Boris Johnson... | Nick Cohen

Self-interested and reckless leadership defines too much of our past – and presentBoris Johnson concludes his Churchill biography with splutters against historians who insist the “story of humanity is not the story of great men and shining deeds”. The story of Winston Churchill, he cries, “is a pretty withering retort to all that malarkey. He and he alone made the difference.”The story of Boris Johnson withers too. He is shrivelling Britain: making it cramped, poor and irrelevant. Modern histori...
