As it stands rights now, at least five Broward County Deputies were on the scene at the Parkland shooting, but did not enter the building. Are there considerations as to why they failed to enter the school? Were they trained not to go in, but to wait for SWAT? Or did they just freeze? We’ll talk with Bill Mick of WMMB-AM in Melbourne, FL about the issues.  Read the rest of this entry

Four Things

shutupAfter a weekend of thinking about things, Dave has four issues he has to get off of his chest. (1) Obamacare Ruling (2) Gay Marriage Ruling (3) CSA Battle Flags and (4) Other Stuff that happened while we were talking about the other stuff.

Since the last shall be First, Greece is about to become a Ancient Third World power as her banks collapse and she goes broke. Europe is unhappy about their fact that Greece feels like paying its bills is “insulting.” A PLRI Terror attack in Tunisia was stopped in part by Muslims standing up against the terrorist.

The Obamacare ruling would have been a moot point if the GOP Candidates who ran on a promise of stopping Obamacare had actually kept their promise. They didn’t, so we’re all stuck with it now – including every single one of the GOP 2016 Candidates for President.

At least one newspaper is already claiming that since the Supreme Court has decided the case, there will be no more anti-gay marriage articles or letters to the editor. The problem is that the Supreme Court has a pretty good record of reversing itself – at least better than you might think. So if the SCOTUS ruling on Gay Marriage is absolute, is the SCOTUS ruling on the 2nd Amendment also absolute? Will said Paper be running no more articles/letters reflecting an anti-gun position?

The CSA Battle Flag was carried into battle by men who knew for what they were fighting. And that was, plain and simply, slavery. There has been 150 years of the “States Rights” argument, but at the end of the day, the men who were there made it crystal clear that the issue was slavery. And nothing else.

Later today the Redistricting ruling will come from SCOTUS. The GOP is already terrified and using it as a fundraiser.

Star and Bars

As the nation mourns the terrorist attack by Dylan Roof in South Carolina, the pressure is building for the State of South Carolina to remove the Confederate Battle Flag from its Capitol Building grounds.

But what does the CSA Battle flag represent? What is it’s actual legacy?

Houston ChronicleIn Texas, the Supreme Court of the United States rules that the State can bar the Sons of Confederate Veterans from putting the CSA Battle Flag on license plates issued on their behalf by the State of Texas. Is it about free speech, or “Government speech? And what happened to cause a Conservative Justice to agree that Texas could bar the Flag from its license plates?

History cannot be molded into easily accepted conventions. If you study history and are 100% comfortable with everything you learn, you missed something. So how can history help us grapple with what to do about the CSA Battle Flag?
