Background In early 1942 the federal government began rounding up tens of thousands of people and systematically shipping them off to remote, desolate camps for an indefinite period of time. The camps were patrolled by armed guards and surrounded by barbed wire fences. Many of these unfortunates, given as little as ten days’ notice and […]

Betrayed

BoehnerMcConnell

We’ve just passed the ninety day mark since the November elections and by now it should be clear what was sold to Republican voters during the campaign season is out of sync with what is getting delivered. Any casual observer can see a pattern of behavior that hardly deserves commendation.  In 2010, we start with […]

Duke Chapel, The Adhan and Tolerance in 2015

Bridenstine and Massie Call For Reinstatement of Boehner Foes

Congressman Jim Bridenstine

The backlash against conservative House Representatives who participated in the failed coup against Speaker John Boehner began almost immediately after the vote.

Charlotte Hurts Banks for Boosterism

NASCAR Hall of Fame

Banks are forced to deal with bankruptcies and bad debt on a regular basis. It isn’t irregular for a bank to write-off bad debt as an uncollectible loss on it’s tax returns.

Should you be able to opt out of a jury trial?
