Warming Up Your Car? It’s Illegal And Dangerous, by Eric Lagatta, at Government at all levels is tyrannical. Ohio law states that it is illegal to leave your car running with your keys in it. They passed this law to prevent car thefts. What right do legislative busybodies have to tell us what we can do with our property. You own your car. If you want to weigh the risk of warm up your car in the morning vs. its potential theft, it should be your decision not theirs. just another example of incremental intervention by tyrannical government. Ohio is not the only state that has this law (read here).

Philadelphia Police Chief And Mayor Disagree on whether a police being shot had something, or nothing, to do with Islam. The police chief reports the facts of the case.

Bernie Sanders Says Police, Not Colleges, Should Handle Rape, by Robby Soave, at I agree with Bernie Sanders, wait a second, Bernie Sanders agrees with me. Rape is a legal issue that should be handled by cops and courts. Colleges are not equipped to handle allegations of rape.

Colleges should let the legal system take care of these accusations.

Multiculturalism Trumps Protecting Women From Rape, by Dennis Prager, at On the lefts  ladder of political correctness, women must understand that they rank at least one rung below the idea of multiculturalism.

At least you can go to the replay official in the NFL when an official makes a decision. This girl has to wait for a hearing on the matter. File this under to many rules and not enough common sense.

Hillary Clearly Knew She Was Sending Secret Information Via Insecure E-Mails, And Knew It Was Wrong, by John R. Lott, at You can have your own server, but you are not allowed to use it for State business.The FBI Expands Investigation To Clinton Foundation, at The Clinton Foundation is just a way for Bill and Hill to launder money.

It’s All The Fed’s Fault”, Santelli Rages, at He says “that the notion that a group of people should control the price of money, (he means the interest rate), should be under review“.
