I wonder just what proportion of crime is generated by entrapment. Example: the FBI allegedly trained a blogger to bait right-wing terrorists into doing something they wouldn't normally do.
This is just great. Not. DNA evidence can be fabricated. The persons I fear will suffer the most are those who were wrongfully imprisoned and convicted, only to have DNA evidence demonstrate unequivocally they were innocent. With DNA discredited, there goes their only ticket out of kangaroo court.
Speaking of wrongfully convicted, take a read at what this guy went through, and think of him when someone tries to claim the near-infallibility of the criminal justice system or says that "a jury convicted him, so he must be guilty". Prosecutorial misconduct, fabricated evidence, jurors who respond more to emotional appeals than facts. It's crap like this that makes me declare that the death penalty is immoral in the hands of the State, and to wonder openly about how just our justice system really is. HT: MikeT.
Left-wingers have been screwing themselves into the ceiling over a protestor's "time to water the tree of liberty" sign at a recent town hall. Apparently the tone is just too uncivil. How quickly they forget their tone during 43's reign.
Holy crap! Pregnant with 12 babies?! Too bad it was a hoax.
Death squads roam Baghdad looking for homogamous couples.
Afghan law sez that men can refuse to feed their wife if she refuses to have sex with him.
What is the purpose behind issuing a license to conduct business anyway? NYC girl fined for her lemonade stand.
Yet another warning to watch what info you put out on the 'net. Your private life is searchable via www.snitch.name.
Well played old chap. British sniper nails Taliban commander from over two klicks away.
Actually I agree with the church on this one. Anything to get us away from this noxious fascist civic religion that this country still has remnants of. Church bars US flags from vets coffins while on church property.
Prosperity gospel is just disgusting to me.
Here's a map of bank failures in the USA since January 2008. Larger circles represent more assets at the time of failure. Click on the image to zoom. Source: WSJ. HT: Vox.
For any survivalist dudes who lurk here. MREs recalled for bad dairy shake powder.
This Gallup Poll says that those who call themselves "conservative" dominate "liberals" even in blue states. Of course, given the big-government policies that pass for "conservative" these days, I'm not surprised one bit. Although I'm happy to report that Wyoming is in the top 10 of conservative states, cons outnumber libtards here by 28%, and is second only to Utah in Democrat Party disadvantage.
Color me unsurprised. Homeschooled kids outperform public schooled ones by more than 30%. What's more, the performance drop-off that we see in boys in the fem-centric PS system doesn't appear with homeschooled kids.
