    JFK Conspiracy Theories

    Two conspiracy theorists die and go to heaven. St. Peter tells them that Heaven is a place of all knowledge, so they can each ask him one question and he will reveal the answer to them. The first one says "Who killed John F. Kennedy?" St. Peter says "Lee Harvey Oswald." The other says "Who was he working with?" St. Peter says "He acted alone." The two of them look at each other and say "Wow! The coverup is bigger than we thought!" But seriously, what keeps this stuff going? Some would say the evidence. Other would say mental illness. I myself am unsure, and I have a hard time really focusing on this one as I didn't live through it. This article is pretty much a starting point for me and a note to self. Steve, debunk this one.

    As with any story, it is hard to say what happened unless you were there yourself. So why do I feel the need to post an article defending Richie Incognito? Because I can recognize a good snow job when I see one, and there is a blizzard coming from Jonathan Martin and company on this deal. Now to be fair, I am well aware that I am in the minority opinion on this one. Chances are if you are reading this you already have an opinion on this topic. Either I am preaching to the choir or I am dealing with a skeptic who wants to get a good chuckle at a brainwashed Dolphins fan defending the indefensible. So while I typically take the approach of building a good case, let me lay the best logical argument I have on you to kick this thing off.

    Scott Brown, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, and Rick Snyder. What do these guys have in common? If you are a tea party member, then you already know the answer. Rick Snyder accepted the Medicare expansion for his state. Marco Rubio tried to tackle immigration reform. Scott Brown... who am I kidding? Like they need a reason? Heck, Chris Christie hugged Obama, let's throw him under the Tea Party Express. These are all candidates once endorsed by the Tea Party who have found themselves on the outs with the same group.  Now, with another midterm election looming around the corner, it appears Mitch McConnell has made the Tea Party Hit List as well. But before you guys get too far into this, would you kindly allow me to present you with some simple logic?

    If you think political talk radio is a brutal place, you should try sports talk radio. In the world of news talk, you have a biased hosed with a political agenda attempting to spin current events to make you see them his way. In the world of sports talk, you largely have a field of minds so jammed with statistics and dates that they are unable to form a point of view on anything other than a simple Vegas line, let alone manage to try to find a way to spin the event for the mindless masses who tune it. This can make listening to channels like Mad Dog Radio on Sirius and XM Radio an exercise in frustration. Yet it is an exercise that I perform almost daily, and occasionally I call in to try to straighten some of these guys out. My latest beef? The New York Knicks.

  • Abortion: Leopards Vs Hyenas

    Author Administrator

    One of the major drawbacks of being a blogger who has opinions that don't always fit the mainstream of either political party is that, after awhile, the party faithful tend to tune you out. Truth be told, I tend to get more responses from the left than from the right when I post my articles to facebook. On the issue of abortion, I am a guy who was once in the pro life political camp until my views evolved (politically, not personally) to pro choice. Yet I have long believed, ever since I knew there even was such an issue, that we should all be able to find some common ground on a child that has been born alive. That was, of course, before I knew about a State Senator from Illinois named Barack Obama and a doctor from Pennsylvania named Kermit Gosnell.

Ethan Mack sentenced to 25 years

Written by Mona on .

The Waring family no longer has to worry about a second trial for the man accused of murdering their daughter in 2009. 

On April 1, 2011 Ethan Mack plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter. Mack entered a Alford plea. An Alford plea is when a defendant does not admit his guilt but acknowledges a jury would likely find him guilty had his case gone to trial. Mack was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

The prosecution in the case, Ninth Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson said she had mixed feelings about the plea. But agreed to it because of the unreliability of their main witness, Heather Kamp. Kamp told a jury in October 2010 that she and Mack had murdered Waring. Kamp testified that on June 12, 2009, that she and Mack took Katherine Waring to their home and after tasing her repeatedly hit her in the head with a wine bottle. Kamp said that she and Mack then put Waring in a bathtub filled with water where she drown. Kamp said she and Mack then dumped Waring's body. Kamp led investigator's to the location where Waring's skeletal remains were found in October of 2009. No physical evidence could be linked to the scene where Kamp said the crime had occurred. She told investigators that after the murder, Mack took a nap and she cleaned the bathroom. Waring's body was still inside the home at the time.

Mack's trial ended in a mistrial for murder, but he was found guilty on obstruction of justice and forgery. Heather Kamp plead guilty but mentally ill.  Her sentencing is expected later this month.  Before leaving the courtroom Mack told the Waring family that he was sorry for the loss of their loved one (Kate Waring) and that she would be missed.
