This week, Judge Pearson walked out of court with nothing. He wasn't reimbursed in any way, and justice for the Korean couple who ran the dry cleaners he sued was served.

Judge Pearson was one of those unreasonable customers all of us who have ever had the pleasure of dealing with customers occasionally run into. The customer who is wrong and trying to bully their way over you.

Those customers are usually obvious. They yell, they threaten, they make outlandish claims about their personal p...

For the Republican who does not want a President who leads by polls, Mitt Romney is not their guy.

So far, Mitt has shown his ability to out flip flop John Kerry by reversing his positions on abortion, gay marriage and most of the policies of his tenure as Massechucetts Governor. And now Mitt has "done it again" by declaring that this nation "is on the wrong track."

Specifically, Romney said ; "We're going to change the course of America," Romney told about 800 donors gathered for a pep r...

In case the liberal crowd has forgotten that it isn't only the right wing of the GOP that occasionally endorses policy that controls what we say, hear and such, Senator Diane Feinstein has reminded us.

Today, on Fox Feinstein said that it might be time to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine for talk radio.

“I am looking at it,” she said.

“In my view, talk radio tends to be one-sided, tends to dwell in hyperbole. It is explosive, pushes people to extreme views without a lot of information,...

This week saw another round in Dick Cheney and his office defying the wheels of justice, Congress and anyone that dares question the Vice President. Now it seems that Cheney's game is essentially about switching which branch of the government they belong to at their convenience and discretion. If someone wants them accountable to the executive, Cheney's office claims to be a member of the legislative branch using Dick's title of Senate President for cover. Then, if Congress wants to question him...

Time magazine has done a great article on JFK and some "behind the scenes" glimpses into the man behind the myth. Here's a taste. For the full article follow the link...

John F. Kennedy's loyal White House aides, Kenneth O'Donnell and Dave Powers, titled their 1972 J.F.K. memoir Johnny, We Hardly Knew Ye—despite the fact that they had served him since his days as a scrawny young congressional candidate in Boston. So it's no surprise that Americans are still trying to figure out nearly half a ...

This week, republican mayor Michael Bloomberg announced his departure from the GOP. The speculation is that he is gearing up for an independent run for President of the United States. And Bloomberg's history, despite his public comments, would lead one to think that he is indeed at least strongly considering a run for the nation's highest office.

Before his 2001 run for mayor, Bloomberg, a lifelong democrat, switched to the GOP to avoid spending anything in the primary race by avoiding a crow...

I was just cleared to interview Congressman Joseph Wilson (R-SC).

The interview will happen in the next week or so. I thought I might throw it out to JU readers to suggest questions they might ask.

I will be submitting questions in advance for the Congressman, so no "blindsides."

The primary topic will be one that is of great interest, immigration.

This is the 2nd part of a brief "good, bad and ugly" analysis of each of the 2 major party's field of contenders. This time, we look at the Democrats.

Hillary Clinton

The Good - About as big of a success story and "living the dream" as any woman could be an example of. Mother, wife, professional, 1st lady and Senator. Hillary has definitely done it all.

The Bad - The public may just be tired of a Bush or Clinton on the ballot since 1980.

The Ugly - Has one of the most well-oiled an...

This is just a brief rundown on each Presidential candidate. To be fair, I am listing 1 thing I like about each candidate, 1 thing I don't like, and some "deficiency" in their candidacy.

Rudy Giuliani

The Good - A very decisive leader. Willing to step away from the GOP platform on certain issues.

The Bad - Known as a "dictator."

The Ugly - it's tough to take a guy at his word about "always living up to their commitments / promises" when he has 2 ex wives. Funny how the bishops ne...

Today, it was reported that a "tearful" Dennis Nifong will resign as DA. It's about time. Months ago, when ethics charges were finally formally brought onto Nifong, I wrote how maybe justice might be finally on it's way to being done in this case. Today's resignation, combined with stirring testimony from one of Nifong's victims, were a step in that direction.

Nifong should have resigned a long time ago, and I truly hope the North Carolina bar takes away his liscense. What he did in using the...

A lot of talk goes on about the founders and what they saw our nation developing at it's birth. We constantly look for ways to show how the founders would have handled a modern issue based on the Constitution, the formal early acts of governement, and things they said and wrote during their lives.

One issue, the issue of gay marriage and civil unions isn't really covered in the Constitution. And it really wasn't an issue at all in colonial America. Where as it surely existed, writing about ...
