Fighting Them Over There…

In the Brennan confirmation hearings, someone actually intoned the tired, fallacious meme, that we are somehow better-off “fighting ‘them’ over there, instead of over here.” About 3,000 people died on 9/11 (a VERY preventable attack); There were only a handful of other deaths in the previous decade of al-Qaeda’s existence; Three times as many have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, over about ten years. How, exactly, are we better-off fighting them “over there” again…?

The NRA May Be (Partially) Right…

The Trayvon Martin Murder Wasn’t the Worst Crime Here

The shooting was bad enough. Yet somehow the police have managed to turn a senseless, tragic murder into a far worse crime: They’ve declared open-season to SLAUGHTER black children. Are we surprised?
