    FLAG BURNING VIDEO!

    Absolute power corrupts absolute, and as I recall Ted Turner, wise man that he is, once called Christians “stupid.” He eventually apologized, but for what I don’t know. While Christians are foolishly attempting to take over government with religion, the potential grows for a flag burning amendment that would essentially set the stage for the dissolution of all basic constitutional rights to unravel like a braided sisal rope without a boy scout.

    Where’s Colin Kaepernick?

    Our leaders are in denial of what is obvious at face value. The biggest threat to the future of this country is the incompetence and corruption of law enforcement.

    Huntsville’s Gestapo

    Growing up and living in Huntsville I’ve always heard it said: The police department is a Gestapo. For the most part, I just figured someone who done something wrong and got caught had become disgruntled. Over the years, however, I have slowly, sadly, and surely come to another conclusion. That’s based on a couple of […]

    Rascally Oakwood College Students Have Protest History Other Than Ferguson

    As mentioned in this column title, Oakwood College students have a history of protest and kudos to them for responsible public action.

Unemployment is still near 8%, twice that for black men, and the housing market and manufacturing are still sluggish at best. And yet, Chicago teachers making an average of $70k annually, in a job that should […]

    The Huntsville Times Delivers A Thanksgiving Slap In The Face

    Seldom have I seen such an obnoxious sign-off for loyal customers. One thing is for certain, the Huntsville Times print edition is a lame attempt to accomplish nothing more than run interference against any would be competitors who might try to step in and fill the empty space created by the three day print schedule.

    What About Kenneth Shipp?

    I’m surprised that Shipp’s attorney’s didn’t pursue a temporary insanity defense. Although we know that the standard of insanity defense in the State of Alabama is so high, that it is virtually never successful. In my opinion, while Kenneth Shipp might have acted irresponsibly in some ways, and it does seem obvious that he picked up his gun and pulled the trigger, the aggravating circumstances add up to manslaughter and twenty years – not life in prison.
