Judge in Australia says incest may no longer be a taboo and the only reason it is criminal is potential birth abnormalities, which can be solved by abortionA judge in Australia has been criticised after saying incest may no longer be a taboo and that the community may now accept consensual sex between adult siblings.Judge Garry Neilson, from the district court in the state of New South Wales, likened incest to homosexuality, which was once regarded as criminal and “unnatural” but is now widely accepted.He said incest was now only a crime because it may lead to abnormalities in offspring but this rationale was increasingly irrelevant because of the availability of contraception and abortion.“A jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now ‘available’, not having [a] sexual partner,” the judge said.“If this was the 1950s and you had a jury of 12 men there, which is what you’d invariably have, they would say it’s unnatural for a man to be interested in another man or a man being interested in a boy.Those things have gone.”More @ The Telegraph
I’m a BIG believer in this country’s capitalist, free market system. Have a problem with XX Company’s product/service? Don’t use ‘em! If they damaged you – SUE ‘em! It’s the AMERICAN way!
Of course, this assumes (and you know what happens when you assume?) that everyone plays fair and by the rules…
Enter SWAT TEAMS, Incorporated!
No longer must the police operate in good faith and under the purvue of public records law.
(Let that sink in for a minute…)

The information below is taken from news sources. The aliens in these reports were all identified as being in the country illegally, and many of them had come into the hands of law enforcement agencies prior to the crime that is described below, but the alien was not deported or in some cases was deported but reentered the country.
These cases are listed as a demonstration that better prevention of illegal immigration is a public safety issue even though these cases are not representative of the illegal alien population in general. These cases refer to crimes other than terrorism.
May 2014 — Humberto Gonzalez, an illegal alien, was convicted in New Jersey of criminal assault and sentenced to 50 years in prison. The rape occurred in 2005 and Gonzalez was not identified until a DNA match was made following an arrest in Texas for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Gonzalez also had a criminal record in Louisiana and Arkansas. (Times of Trenton, May 9, 2014)
February 2014 — Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, an illegal alien from Mexico, was found guilty of two counts of a felony for failure to perform the duties of a driver and sentenced to three years of probation and 250 hours of community service. Garcia-Cisneros committed a hit-and-run that resulted in the death of two stepsisters, 6-year-old Anna Dieter-Eckerdt and 11-year-old Abigail Robinson. (Associated Press, Feb. 4, 2013)
January 2014 — Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon, aka Jay Hendrix, an Iraqi immigrant, was found guilty in Colorado on multiple counts of sexual assault. He faces a possible sentence of life in prison. Sarmad Fadhi “Levi” Mohammed, another Iraqi was earlier convicted for the same assault and sentenced to 16 years in prison. An additional three Iraqi immigrants involved in the assault have received misdemeanor convictions. (Colorado Gazette, January 21, 2014)
January 2014 — Modesto Osco, a Peruvian, pled guilty to indecent assault on a minor. He was sentenced in Pennsylvania to five months to two years in prison. (The Morning Call, January 6, 2014)

…and then there are the unwanted diseased illegal alien children that have been abandoned here.
The Border Patrol says they simply don’t have the resources.
Who was it who suggested to overtax the system until the
communist benign overlords can magically appear and offer THE solution to the problem?
Oh, yeah, Cloward and Piven.
I wonder if this whole open borders thing is simply another cog in that wheel? Nancy Pelosi says The United States and Mexico are simply the same people divided by a political border.
Of course, I don’t see her (millionairess that she is) taking home 5 or 10 or even one of those diseased children…

And, because the homeowner won’t stand up to protect his home and family, he’s left with having a tenant he doesn’t want.
Reading this, I was reminded of my early days @ TMCCC… (cue harp music signifying a return to the days-of-yore…)
I had a fraud case wherein a credit card holder (an older, retired gentlemen) had become friends, then lovers, with a women he met in a park. He asked her to move in with him, and suddenly it was she, her young daughter, some animals, and some friends as tenants. And she set about using his credit cards and money without permission. THEN, she waited for him to leave the house, had him charged with domestic abuse, and had an order-of-protection taken out against him! He was no longer able to enter his own home!
And then she and her friends turned his retirement cottage into a meth factory.
But that was not the icing on the cake. After years of legal wrangling, he finally was able to have them extricated from his home, and jailed. Of course, the interior was trashed, and his furniture and property sold or destroyed. Because she had used his credit cards fraudulently, he was told the best thing to do was to file bankruptcy to get out of the debt she had created.
But he could not…
SHE HAD FILED BANKRUPTCY USING HIS SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER!
Imagine trying to explain that to creditors, attorneys and law enforcement!
And you thought the movie Pacific Heights was harrowing!

I like FNC…
NO, NOT the Fox News Channel – although I DO like it, too, on occasion.
I’m speaking of the blog Free North Carolina!
They sometimes have blog fare I view as incendiary, but, more often than not, they make me think differently on a specific issue – even if I continue to disagree with them on that very issue!
One of this Constitutional Republic’s tenets I wholeheartedly endorse is speedy justice. I know, with the judicial bureaucracy, it doesn’t always seem so, however.
FNC did post a short video of one such event:

An Oklahoma company has designed a bullet-resistant blanket that’s designed to protect children and teachers in the event of a school shooting.
The Bodyguard Blanket, made by ProTecht, is a bulletproof 5/16-inch pad that the company says is made from the same materials used by the U.S. military.
Steve Walker, a podiatrist who conceptualized the blanket, toldThe Oklahoman that the idea came to him after two tragedies: the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the tornadoes in Oklahoma. He said the idea was to “stop that blunt-force trauma when that rubble is falling down on a child.”
The company estimates that the blanket can provide protection against 90% of all weapons that have been used in school shootings in the U.S.
The blanket has straps that can be fastened around users like a backpack. The lightweight pad is made of a high-density plastic used for ballistic armor. The material can also protect users from nails, shards of metal, and other sharp objects.
After testing the blanket at a shooting range, the makers said it provided protection against bullets from a 12-gauge buckshot, a .22-caliber, and a 9 mm, among others.
The $1,000 blankets are a cheaper alternative to tornado shelters, but its makers say they are better for school shootings. (says the manufacturer.)
HMMM…let me see…
$1000 per student (PLUS, they have to lug these things around!) versus hiring trained security personnel AND/OR TRAINING TEACHERS AND STAFF AND ARMING THEM!
I’m reminded of growing up during the Cold War, and the ubiquitous instructions for us to ‘duck and cover’ in case of a nuclear bomb attack.
And the lampooning by the 60′s college crowd of that practice, saying we should have put our heads between our legs and kiss our a**es goodbye!

(after yesterday’s ‘school shooting’ – aka a shooting which just happened to take place in a school – this was making the rounds – in addition to the usual calls for more ‘gun control laws’ – as though the kid yesterday hadn’t already violated numerous laws…THIS DOESN’T SOLVE THE PROBLEM – WHEN THESE CRIMES OCCUR, THE SCHOOLS CALL IN THE ONLY SOLUTION TO RESPOND – PEOPLE WITH GUNS! TRAIN AND ARM TEACHERS AND STAFF!) - Guffaw

This from Illinois, land of the dead voter…
A story from AP Mobile:Cook County has long been ridiculed for allowing dead people cast votes, but the state may have just garnered a new distinction.It paid $12 million in health care for people who were already dead – including in one case, for a person who had died in 1989.A new financial audit released by Auditor General Bill Holland’s office on Thursday found that the Illinois Department of Health…
Walter R. Walsh, a world-class marksman who shot clothespins off laundry lines as a boy and went on to become an F.B.I. legend in shootouts with gangsters in the 1930s, an Olympic competitor and a trainer of generations of Marine Corps sharpshooters, died on Tuesday at his home in Arlington, Va. He was 106.
His son Walter confirmed the death.
(further in the article…)
In 1942, after America’s entry into World War II, Mr. Walsh joined the Marines. For two years he trained snipers in New River, N.C. He requested combat duty in 1944, was sent to the Pacific and joined the invasion of Okinawa in 1945. At one point, with his unit pinned down, he killed an enemy sniper at 80 yards with one pistol shot.
Mr. Walsh, you were a credit to this Nation and to shooters everywhere. R.I.P.

SO, I’m in-line @ the pharmacy, and my cell goes off. As one is discouraged from taking calls in-line at the pharmacy, I demurred.
THEN, my med purchase is declined! She tried to run it as a credit charge, again no go.
She advised I should step out-of-line and call my bank. I did.
Turns out, someone attempted fraudulent charges on my Visa debit card in both Nevada and Florida!! (I’m in AZ)
(Ironic happening to a former credit card fraud investigator, huh?)
My options were to go to an ATM, get cash for my prescriptions, then visit the credit union and have a new card issued. Or, just visit the CU and have a new card issued. My choice. In any case, neither a debit nor credit charge was going through.
The Credit Onion is only 1 1/2 miles away, so I went for the more permanent fix. And returned to get my meds.
Thank God it wasn’t on a Sunday, or after hours. Or 1990, when I would have had to wait a week to 10 days for a new card!
It was annoying the hold on the phone was longer than the wait at the CU to get a replacement card. And, the rep on the phone was difficult to understand, and was rude. At least it sounded like Oklahoma and not India. It’s also an annoyance I now have to memorize a new card number and security code!
