“ . . . no one can tame the tongue. It is restless and evil, full of deadly poison.”  James 3:8


Phoebe Prince was 15 years old when she killed herself January 14, 2010.   She hung herself in the stairwell of her home.   Her 12-year-old sister found her.

An immigrant from Ireland, Phoebe had been in the states for a few months.

Why would a beautiful, intelligent girl commit suicide after attending South Hadley High School in Massachusetts for such a short time?


They’re all in bed together: nighty night America

“So, where are we meeting for drinks after the hearing?”

Certain things in American life are axiomatic:

>We grudgingly accept a given number of politicians will always be Crooks.

>We know too many Big Wheels in high finance are slick operators, the money changers in the temple.

>We know that when the Big Wheels and the Crooks start ripping each other publically, it really means they are making new, private deals in shadowy places over cocktails.

So it came as no surprise to learn from the headlines that the Big Wheels at Goldman Sachs are gushing gleeful over Obama’s finance reform being pushed by retiring Senator Dodd, the Senate’s role model for how to secure private financing at favorable rates reserved only for powerful senators with bank oversight authority.

Really?  Goldman Sachs executives want federal regulation?  What’s the catch?  Some of the more cyncial among us might say the President is bought and paid for by Goldman, as are a number of other Crooks, and that Dodd’s finance reform is really a ploy to give the feds unlimited bailout authority.

Instead of finding common ground to work together to form a more perfect Union, we are easily preoccupied by a gecko slandering average Americans, the latest Hollywood star falling from outer space, or another baseless accusation against McDonald’s or the Boy Scouts, as if we’ve nothing better to do than wring our hands over Lindsey Graham’s sexual orientation or the latest sewage spewing from the mouth of Ed Schultz or Rachel Maddow.

     LAPD officer Robert J. Cottle KIA 3/24/10

 

SWAT officer & Sgt. Maj. Robert J. Cottle, USMC, is the first active duty LAPD officer to be killed serving in Afghanistan or Iraq.

Cottle and Lance Cpl. Rick Centanni, 19, both from Yorba Linda, were traveling with other Marines in the Marja region of Afghanistan last month when their armored vehicle struck an improvised explosive device, killing the two men and seriously wounding two others.

                            Cottle and Centanni

More about a man who was respected by his peers in the Corps and on the force in Los Angeles, here.

Cottle’s sacrifice, and the sacrifice of so many others, both at home and abroad, reminds us again there are good guys and bad guys in the world.  The good guys—like Robert Cottle—fight, bleed and die everyday so that average citizens can lead lives of peace and safety.  We owe them more than we can ever pay.   Donations.

Cottle leaves a wife and nine-month-old daughter.   Cottle’s wife Emily is an officer in the U.S. Navy.

Two days ago we reported on the case of Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, Army surgeon, highly decorated.

Terry Lakin, MD is to face a court martial for his refusal to obey deployment orders, pending proof that it is a lawful order, issued by a commander in chief who meets the constitutional requirements of office. Dr. Lakin explained his refusal in an article published April 8th on American Thinker.”

Excerpt

Tea Party organizers are concerned opponents will attempt to disrupt protests planned April 15 even to the point of provoking violence.  One leader in the Tea Party movement, actor Jon Voight, made this statement recently:

“Every loving American for peace and truth and the security of our nation must come out and join the Tea Parties in their states. The opposition will continue their tactics; they will lie and plant their own bullies amongst us. Everyone must pay close attention to who stands next to them. We can weed out the liars and agitators.”
 

According to an Associated Press report yesterday:

“Opponents of the fiscally conservative tea party movement say they plan to infiltrate and dismantle the political group by trying to make its members appear to be racist, homophobic and moronic.”
