Thomas Sowell wrote in one of my favorite styles in his article, the style of Random Thoughts on a passing scene, February 11th 2014 – here is some highlights of that recent article:
- I am so old that I can remember when sex was private. “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” applied to everybody.
- It is fascinating to see academics full of indignation over the “exploitation” of low-wage workers by multinational corporations in Third World countries, when it is common on their own academic campuses to have young men get paid nothing at all for risking their health, and sometimes their lives, playing football that brings in millions of dollars to the college and often get coaches paid higher salaries than the president of the college or university.
Anyone who wishes for armed conflict or war is either fooling themselves or a liar – or both.
Alex Jones is a patriot and a constitutionalist, who has been on the band wagon to wake people up to where the United States is heading. He often loses it concerning the outrageous acts of federal [and some state] government, or rather those who have been elected to operate on our behalf as ‘We the People’.
Constitutionalists like Bill Whittle and Glenn Beck converse in a more calmer state, but I believe they may get the message across [and warnings to Americans] than someone who loses their temper – not that Mr. Jones does not truly believe that We the People must insist upon reformation and the return of what government is and represents as created by the Founders. Of course, Mr. Jones’ confrontation with authorities, acting as a media form, has a right to be angry at the establishment created by apathetic citizens allowing political prostitutes to run their government.
Here is some information that could not be released until the Zimmerman trial was over – and the media has ignored from the beginning. They were so busy trying to make Zimmerman appear as a racist and Martin a victim of racism that they did not bother to get any objective details. Check out:

Photo of George Zimmerman’s Black Great Grandfather at CF News-13. Remember, the media did not talk much about Zimmerman’s Peruvian mother.
And the racial lynch mob does not accept the verdict, as Bruce Thornton explains at FrontPage Mag entitled Race-Industry Leeches.
And, rightfully so, NBC is being sued by Zimmerman for editing 911 Call and should sue the media [CNN] for displaying his social security number during a trial broadcast.
Looking at an alternate view concerning George Zimmerman, questions that the prosecution did not ask or information not used – playing the “devil’s advocate”, so to speak …
George is a Spanish-speaking minority with many black family members and friends.
His mother is Peruvian-American, and George grew up in Manassas, Virginia, where neighbors describe the Zimmerman’s as very religious – George was an altar boy and evening receptionist at the family’s parish, All Saints Catholic Church. The Zimmerman children attended Catholic school through the eighth grade, then public high school. The family moved to Florida about a decade ago. George married Shellie Nicole Dean, a cosmetologist, in 2007.
[AP/Yahoo] – James Holmes in the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting trial pleads not guilty by reason of insanity. To me, accepting a plea of insanity is itself insane, making as much sense as charging a person who commits a violent act under a ‘hate crime’ law. One does not commit violence against another because they ‘like’ them. Degrees of homicide has been established because of varying circumstances of intent, as well as manslaughter for those who inadvertently because of careless actions cause the death of someone; but to plea insanity to escape death penalty or some leniency of the court is ridiculous.
Why should taxpayers fund the cost of keeping a person around for life in prison when a dog can be sentenced to death just for injury of a person by biting?
Tomorrow is Good Friday, a very special day for Christianity, a prelude before Easter Day that commemorates the victory of Jesus Christ against death. It is a tradition for Christians to attend mass and churches to remember what the founder of Christianity represents and the covenant with God.
Adore God. Reverence and cherish your parents. Love your neighbor as yourself, and your country more than yourself. Be just. Be true. Murmur not at the ways of Providence.
Those who are not Christians use the day to gather with family for a traditional feast enjoying the unity of the family nucleus, an entity that has slowly disintegrated in the society of the United States.
In a speech given by Ronald Reagan in the following video, he stated:
I have said that we must be cautious claiming that God is on our side. I think the real question we must answer is: Are we on His side?
