A lawsuit filed by a Muslim activist organization against a Florida firearms retailer who posted a "Muslim Free Zone" sign has been dismissed and the case ordered closed because the statement was protected by the First Amendment and the activists couldn't show they were injured. The decision was released by U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom…

The retailer should keep a really friendly dog in the store who greets everyone.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg spoke with the BBC this week about the upcoming impeachment trial in the US Senate. During her questioning Justice Ginsburg suggested that US Senators could be disqualified from the proceedings if they are not impartial. Justice Ginsburg: “The House indicts, and the Senate tries. Should a trier be impartial? Of course, that’s …

Dead justices that hate the plaintiff are not impartial.
https://jonathanturley.org/2016/07/11/did-justice-ginsburg-just-violate-judicial-ethics-in-her-criticism-of-donald-trump/comment-page-3/ Canon 5 of the judicial ethical rules expressly states that judges shall not “make speeches for a political organization or candidate, or publicly endorse or oppose a candidate for public office.” The problem is that the Court has long maintained that ethical codes are not enforceable against its members as opposed to every other jurist in the country. This absurd position has continued because Congress has failed to act, something that I have previously criticized. Ginsburg’s statements this week reflects the continued sense of impunity enjoyed by justices who violate the core maxim that “no man shall be the judge of his own case.” The justices are the judges of their own ethical cases and they show vividly why that is a dangerous and corrupting power.

Here is how a hand gesture long seen as innocuous was appropriated to signify “white power.”

The NY Times should send some reporters to the hood to capture photos of gangbangers flashing signs at each other.

Animal cruelty has officially become a federal felony after President Donald Trump signed the bill into law on Monday afternoon.

I'm against animal cruelty, but I'm also against failure to understand limitations on federal jurisdiction. If the animals are crossing state lines, or located on federal lands, territories, or military bases, then the law will have effect. Otherwise there is no general federal jurisdiction within the 50 states of the Union, but then most states have animal cruelty statutes. "It shall be unlawful for any person to intentionally engage in animal crushing in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce or within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States."

A mine worker in outback Western Australia has crushed his own ute after running over it with a massive haul truck. 

When I worked for a Phillips Petroleum division, they had a policy that we had to walk around a company car or truck before getting in and driving away.

Evgeny Gluschenko, 37, has been identified in Russian media as the man who was shot after he allegedly crossed the US-Mexico border into Arizona illegally on Thursday.

Perhaps he was a Russian national, but his family name indicates he was of Ukrainian ancestry.

“These gates will open and these Isis members who have started to be sent to you will continue to be sent. Then you can take care of your own problem” — Erdogan

The UK and USA won't deport people who discard their passports/ID's. Maybe they can learn something from Turkey's policies where they just dump they in Europe.

The two turtles that had swastikas painted on their shells were removed from Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park in Washington on Monday and will now undergo 'a quick cleanup and health check'.

The turtles have swastikas spinning in the OPPOSITE direction to those of Hitler! Imagine they are like a circular saw- Hitlers will have to spin clockwise in order to cut, and those of the turtles, counter-clockwise. In general, a swastika reverse when compared to a nazi one, is used as a holy symbol by Hindus. I have seen them on Hindu temples and in Indian owned restaurants. So now we have ignorant people who are stressing turtles because they display Hindu symbols that the ignorant will take offense at even though they have no Nazi meaning.
