DOJ: Wilson Won’t Be Charged In Ferguson Fatal Shooting, at I put emotion aside, and look at these shootings involving police, strictly from the evidence involved. We knew early on, the evidence in the Ferguson case backed up the cops story. That didn’t stop people like AG Holder and the President from fanning the racial flames that sparked the riots in Ferguson. This week AG Holder and his DOJ couldn’t even spin the evidence enough to charge the officer, officer Wilson was exonerated. This is why I hate politics, the high cost of trying to own a particular issue is paid by people (those who were looted or vandalized in the riots) who are in no way involved. The cost of playing political games is more than just taxes and regulations.

Caught On Tape: LAPD Guns Down Homeless Man In Broad Daylight, at Here is a video of LA cops shooting a man they have on the ground. It happened this week, and watching the video, it looks bad. I know that we are second guessing split second decisions, but the guy was on the ground with five cops on top of him. Let’s wait and see if more evidence comes to light about this shooting.

Charges Crumble after Cell Phone Video Uncovered, at This story is why we should not trust people who have the ability to wield power over us. Just because people become “public servants” doesn’t mean they give up the human trait of self-interest. In fact they may have craved positions of power for the very purpose of using it to impose their superior wisdom on we the ignorant masses.

Texas Town Sees 61% Drop In Crime After Kicking Out Cops, at Most people today can’t even imagine how society would work without police to enforce laws. Sharpstown Tx. has contracted with the private security firm, SEAL Security Solutions, to supply security for their town. Crime has gone down and they have saved $200,000 by going private.

Hillary Clinton Created Multiple Private E-Mail Accounts, at The break down of the rule of law starts when our “leaders” violate the law. This is just another example of lawlessness by bureaucrats and politicians. She will not be held accountable to the law even though she broke the law. This particular situation isn’t the start us going down this road, it is just another mile marker we have passed along the road.

1996 Called. Wants Its Clinton Fundraising And Documents Scandals Back, at The private e-mail lawbreaking isn’t anything new when it comes to the Clintons. Most young people don’t remember all the scandals during the 90’s. This is standard operating procedure for the Clintons. Read: Hillary And Benghazi: Call In The Cleaners.

Top Senate Republican Tells States To Not Draft Plans To Cut Carbon Dioxide From Power Plants, at Senator McConnell is trying to get States to do the work he doesn’t have the stones to do. Hey Mitch, here’s an idea, defund the EPA or get rid of it. Congress created this agency in 1970 giving up their congressional power of legislation to unelected bureaucrats. Congress has power over this agency. Stand up and do something about it. Maybe standing up to Big Government is a job that Americans won’t do. Although I do agree that states should be standing up against federal government mandates. Too many laws leads to the break down of the rule of law.

Customers Save A San Francisco Bookstore, At Least For Now, at Raising the minimum wage was going to force Borderland Books to close its doors. If they could get 300 customers each to buy a $100 one-year sponsorship they could stay open. I don’t think this is a very good business model, but if it is voluntary, I don’t have a problem with it. Do the sponsors know that they will be asked to do this again next year? Do the sponsors know the minimum wage increase is the reason they have to pay to keep the store open? How many sponsors were in favor of the minimum wage ordinance?
