Muslim Honor Killing In America

They [the clergy] believe that any portion of power confided to me, will be exerted in opposition to their schemes. And they believe rightly; for I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. But this is all they have to fear from me: and enough, too, in their opinion.
-Thomas Jefferson to Dr. Benjamin Rush, Sept. 23, 1800

Honor killings have been going on in the Muslim communities of America for years

"You know that it was Jefferson who said that the best government is that which does as little governing as possible ... But that time is passed. America is not and cannot in the future be a place for unrestricted individual enterprise." -- Woodrow Wilson


"The American Republic will endure, until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money." -- Alexis de Tocqueville

"In order to become the master, the politician poses as the servant." -- Charles de Gaulle

"The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it."
-- H. L. Mencken


The police chief of Bastrop Texas is on leave after he was arrested on a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge by Austin police.

A now-former Austin Texas police officer has been convicted on a distribution of controlled substance charge for giving crack cocaine to a prostitute’s boyfriend. He was facing several charges on allegations that he was giving drugs and cash to prostitutes and their boyfriends in exchange for sex and… friendship.

A Houston Texas police officer has been arrested on a felony records tampering charge on allegations that she altered a form from her doctor in order to get out of patrol duties. The problem was that her doctor sent a copy of that form directly to the department, revealing the doctored doctor’s excuse.

Why is it so hard for people to avoid turning their personal preferences into moral imperatives that need to be imposed on others by force? -- Eric

I. Open with a tribute to your location and praise local Democrats, particularly the candidate who is getting the money. Throw in an anecdote about Abraham Lincoln:
II. Talk about how bad things were when the Obama presidency began:
III. Discuss how the economy is still struggling, but things are getting better:
IV. Blame Republicans for creating the problems, and for doing nothing to help address them:
V. Warn about the risks of returning Republicans to power -- and use the car anecdote:
VI. Wrap up with one last exhortation:
Play golf

It is governments, not private industry, that rule the airwaves and the Internet. --
Richard A. Falkenrath ( what do you expect from a cop )


A question for the Dallas Cops and the Dallas County Health Department  ??


The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections. -- Supreme Court Justice --  Robert H. Jackson
