Anti-Law Enforcement Media Bias

This headline writer has no shame at all. “No indictment for officer in Taser dare” and the name of the page is even worse. “No indictment for officer who tased woman, 72, on a dare”. It makes it appear as though that was his sole reason for tasing her, when in fact, it wasn’t part of the equation. He felt he was unable to gain control of the situation with any other technique.

Joe Stack’s daughter, Samantha Bell, also had this to say “But if nobody comes out and speaks up on behalf of injustice, then nothing will ever be accomplished,” Uhhh hello? Start a blog or something like the rest of us are doing! You want to talk about injustice? Here’s a story about this fellow who survived two tours of duty in Vietnam (more…)

This must be a recession; even Google is hurting

It seems like Google can do no wrong, and from reading the story they haven’t. But in this economic climate, that couldn’t stop their stock from slipping by 7.6 percent. As a matter off fact, Google is still growing. It’s making more money than ever before; it’s just that it didn’t meet expectations.

And you’re the problem.
