Some still tell it with pride in the hills of north Alabama. Like all the best stories, it has the advantage of being true. In 1863, eight duly sworn and appointed law officers of the...

    Dear Friend, As our campaign has gained momentum, our opponents have gotten more and more desperate. But now they’ve stooped to a new low by attacking my family, my education, and my personal story – playing politics with the journey that has been my life. Mine is a story about a teenage single mother who struggled to keep her young family afloat. It’s a story about a young woman who was given a precious opportunity to work her way up in the world. It’s a story about resiliency, and sacrifice, and perseverance. And you’re damn right it’s a true story.

    Saudi Arabia has noticed Canada’s booming oil and gas industry — and they don’t like what they see. You could even say they’re scared. That’s the panicky message in a 14-page memo written to Saudi Arabia’s energy ministry by Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, an influential member of the Saudi royal family. He desperately warns them that Saudi Arabia’s energy dominance is at risk, including from oil and gas developments in western democracies. And he mentions Canada by name. Al-Waleed isn’t just another pundit or oil-rich Arab sheikh. He’s an international tycoon who has built a vast empire of holdings, including...

    French, it is said, is the language of love. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry flaunted his fluency in the language on Saturday to deliver something of a love letter to France, one of the few world powers that seems likely to join the United States in any military action against Syria. Following the British parliament's August 29 vote to reject any British use of force against Syria, which the United States accuses of gassing its own people with sarin, France has made no secret of its desire to play Washington's supporting partner.

Sadly, that promise is under threat.

In a painfully embarassing moment, Rachel Jeantel was asked to read the letter out loud in court. "Are you able to read that at all?" defense attorney Don West asked. Jeantel, head bowed, eyes averted whispered into the court microphone, "Some but not all. I don't read cursive." It sent a hush through the...

After this letter, Colonel Tunnell was investigated and the normal smear campaign unfolded. Having been embedded with his Brigade in 2010, it became obvious that they were put into a no-win situation, with troops spread over several provinces in Afghanistan.

    Dear Prime Minister Netanyahu, It’s been almost one year ago since I last wrote you an open letter like this. I just want to let you know that most Americans agree with your assessment on Iran and the consequences to both Israel and America if those savages procure nuclear weapons. In a peculiar way, a large number of us look to you, as opposed to the current President of the United States as our legitimate leader in these perilous times. We have much more in common since our nation was founded upon the belief that there is ONE God, the...

    Senate GOP slams Schumer’s push for Saudis to ramp up oil productionBy Ben Geman - 02/27/12 01:17 PM ET Senate Republicans are bashing Sen. Charles Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) call for increased Saudi Arabian oil production to help ease prices, alleging it shows that Democrats are weak when it comes to boosting North American energy supplies and jobs. Schumer on Sunday urged Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to press Saudi officials to expand production, noting that the kingdom is producing well below its capacity of 12.5 million barrels per day. Republicans are hopeful that the letter provides a political opening to...

    Over at USA Today, a self-employed massage therapist from Austin, TX has a letter to the editor responding to an editorial suggesting that Occupy Wall Street has lost its way. (Snip) '' So maybe they should take up their Second Amendment-sanctioned guns and storm Wall Street and our nation’s capitals. If our country doesn’t change, it could very well come to that one day.'' Notice the language here. Rich Latta, the author, threatens outright to head to Wall Street with firearms. Janet Napolitano, where are you? He says they out to head to Washington, D.C. packing heat. Secret Service, you’re

    An Ex-Muslim's Letter to the Critics of Pamela Geller This letter was sent to me from an apostate living in Europe. He has asked me to publish it. Dear Pamela, The more I go through the online videos of your media interventions, the more I am astonished by the way many Americans attack you. Being an ex-muslim — ie: a European who converted to Islam in his youth, who lived in the muslim ummah, travelled and studied in depth Arabic and islamic jurisprudence — your arguments are very clear to me, whilst the arguments of your critics fail to make...
  • One reason crime down: concealed weapons laws(FL)

    Charles Lanes’ article on the Opinion page of Wednesday’s Bradenton Herald surprised me. A well known writer for the Washington Post, he seems unable to tell why crime in this country is down so much in the last 20 years. In the mid-1980s Florida passed a law allowing eligible residents to carry concealed weapons. All states except Illinois have followed suit. Is it no wonder criminals now think twice before committing a crime that might cost their life? I suppose some have gone straight while others engage in less dangerous forms of vice. It also makes it more difficult for...

    I am responding to the full-page ad with Mike Carroll, former president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. The ad blamed U.S. Rep. Dent for not opposing a bill that would force Pennsylvania to accept concealed carry gun permits from every other state. I am a recently retired police officer with more than 30 years in law enforcement, and I want people to know that it is not the law-abiding citizen with concealed carry permits that the police have to worry about, it is the criminal who illegally carries stolen weapons. My former partner, Officer Robert A Lasso...
