What does WSOC-TV have against veterans?

leave a comment »

In an article entitled, “Police: 86-year-old vet charged with child sex crimes”, WSOC TV in Charlotte reports:

    “An 86-year-old Gastonia veteran is accused of indecent liberties with a 13-year-old girl.”

Why did WSOC point out–in their headline, no less–that the alleged pervert is a veteran?

What purpose could this possibly serve, other than to smear veterans as a whole?

The New Yorker’s John Cassidy: More Gun Deaths Would Be Better

with one comment

The New Yorker’s John Cassidy laments that the Boston bombers did not use guns instead of bombs.

If they had used guns, he reasons, they would have killed far more people…

Well, for one thing, the brothers would probably have killed a lot more than three people at the marathon. AR-15s can fire up to forty-five rounds a minute, and at close range they can tear apart a human body. If the Tsarnaevs had started firing near the finish line, they might easily have killed dozens of spectators and runners before fleeing or being shot by the police.

…and therefore increased the chances for stricter gun-control laws…

Maybe I am wrong about how things would have played out. But the country, or large parts of it, would finally have been forced to confront its cognitive dissonance about gun violence and terrorism, which, at the very least, would have been educational.

It’s good to know that Mr. Cassidy is so open and honest about his willingness—eagerness, even—to sacrifice “dozens of spectators and runners” in order to achieve his political objectives.

Have you no decency, Mr. Cassidy?

Aaron Swartz was killed by… Aaron Swartz

leave a comment »

Aaron Swartz’ father says that Swartz was killed by the government:

Swartz was “killed by the government,” his father, Robert Swartz, said at the service at Central Avenue Synagogue in Highland Park, Ill., according to the Chicago Sun-Times. He was killed by the government, and MIT betrayed all of its basic principles,” he said.

Aaron’s death is a tragedy, but the fact remains that he chose to end his own life.

Many people in this world face difficult situations without killing themselves.

Federal prosecutors and MIT officials may be guilty of many things, but not the death of Aaron Swartz.

Remember Aaron, honor him, and use his death to bring about a greater good. But don’t blame anyone but Aaron for what he chose to do.

Al Gore Sells Current TV to Islamic News Network

leave a comment »

Yahoo News reports that former Democratic VP Al Gore has sold his struggling Current TV channel to Islamic news network Al-Jazeera:

The former vice president confirmed the sale Wednesday, saying in a statement that Al-Jazeera shared Current TV’s mission “to give voice to those who are not typically heard; to speak truth to power; to provide independent and diverse points of view; and to tell the stories that no one else is telling.”

But Time Warner Cable refuses to be a party to The Two Als’ effort to spread anti-American propaganda:

The deal suffered an immediate casualty as Time Warner Cable Inc., the nation’s second-largest cable TV operator, announced it would drop Current TV due to the deal… “Our agreement with Current has been terminated and we will no longer be carrying the service. We are removing the service as quickly as possible,” the company said in a statement.

And “anti-American propaganda” is certainly the right term for it:

Dave Marash, a former “Nightline” reporter who worked for Al-Jazeera in Washington, said he left the network in 2008 in part because he sensed an anti-American bias there.

As a capitalist, I support Mr. Gore’s right to add to his $100 million net worth.

As an American, I’m ashamed of him for doing it this way.

NC School Officials Remove God From Six-Year-Old’s Veterans Day Poem

leave a comment »

The superintendent of West Marion Elementary School wants to teach your children that it’s wrong to even mention God:

MCDOWELL COUNTY, N.C. — Some parents and students are outraged after McDowell County School Officials forced a 6-year-old girl to remove the word God from a poem honoring veterans in her family…

The West Marion Elementary School student was preparing for a Veterans Day program when she read her poem, but it was soon edited by the superintendent to remove the word God.

Full story here.

As one commenter stated, it appears that Freedom of Speech only exists for non-Christians.

Have you no decency, Mr. Costas?

leave a comment »

Bob Costas shamed himself and NBC Sunday, using tragedy—and an NFL television broadcast—to promote his views on gun control:

NBC broadcaster Bob Costas used his halftime segment on “Sunday Night Football” to advocate for gun control following this weekend’s murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, causing an immediate debate on social media.

Have you no decency, Mr. Costas?
