What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

Frequent travelers to different cities and countries know that there is a wide degree of variation in the Airport screening practices from one location to another. Inconsistencies can be windows of opportunity.

For many members of the travelling public, there have been incidences where we were confronted by TSA screeners with what seemed to be ridiculous "requests" that just seemed to not make sense. We need to travel and recognize that there may be an unknown yet valid reason for a particular policy, so we comply. There are documented flaws in our security measures which, even after being exposed, are allowed to continue without being addressed by policy directives or procedural updates.

Zynga Inc. is firing back at rival game maker Electronic Arts Inc. in a legal tussle that it says goes beyond who copied whose game.

While saying EA's copyright infringement lawsuit filed last month has "no merit," Zynga on Friday filed a countersuit against EA for allegedly violating antitrust laws by trying to prevent its employees from defecting to Zynga. The countersuit "addresses actions by EA we believe to be anticompetitive and unlawful business practices, including legal threats," said Zynga's general counsel Reggie Davis in a statement.

Alinsky-style behavior in the workplace itself may have been the key.

Recent studies have confirmed that American universities have become bigoted and biased against the expression of conservative views. One new study documents bias against the expression of conservative views among social and personality psychologists, including those at universities...

It's a bad movie that you might have seen before. It tends to show up whenever an advocate of voluntary cooperation explains how society could operate without state coercion.

Right on cue, the zombies from "Night of the Living Statists" rear their heads and mindlessly intone, "But if there's no government, who will build the roads?!" The zombies can't hear your response, so it's useless to try to give them facts and explain how things could be done in a way that's better for everyone if roads and other such things were provided as private services rather than as coercive government monopolies. For those who are open to the facts, though, is there any evidence that people can actually cooperate voluntarily for their own interests? As a matter of fact, there's quite a bit of evidence of that.

Visualize for a moment what would happen if San Francisco hosted a rally on the hot-button topic of abortion. How many people would you expect to show up to support each side?

Well, considering that San Francisco is the city that regularly votes in overwhelming numbers for Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer, two of the strongest abortion advocates in Congress, and that San Francisco is perceived as being among the most liberal cities in the nation, you would likely anticipate the pro-choice side to vastly outnumber the pro-life side at any rally. You couldn't be more wrong.

George Zimmerman's judge will not step down because the motion seeking to disqualify him is "legally insufficient," the judge wrote in his order.

Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. on Wednesday denied a motion by Zimmerman's defense team that sought to disqualify the judge because of alleged bias, Reuters reports. The motion accused Judge Lester of making "gratuitous, disparaging remarks," among other alleged misdeeds, when he set Zimmerman's bail at $1 million in July. So how did the judge reach his ruling? It may seem a bit strange, but under Florida's Rules of Judicial Administration, the same judge who is accused of bias gets to decide whether he is in fact too biased to preside over the case in front of him.

George Zimmerman's judge is biased and should be disqualified from any further role in his murder case, defense lawyer Mark O'Mara argues in a new motion filed Friday.

Sanford, Fla., Judge Kenneth Lester showed his bias by making "gratuitous, disparaging remarks" about Zimmerman in Lester's Order Setting Bail last week, Zimmerman's Motion to Disqualify states. Lester also makes opinionated remarks about prosecutors' evidence, threatens contempt proceedings, and "advocates for Mr. Zimmerman to be prosecuted for additional crimes," O'Mara argues in the motion, which his legal team posted online. Is that sufficient to get Judge Lester disqualified?

George Zimmerman, charged in Florida with shooting an unarmed black teenager, sued NBC Thursday, charging an edited 911 tape defamed him.

In a complaint filed in Seminole County in Florida, Zimmerman said the network edited the tape to make him appear racist, CNN reported. Two former reporters were also named as defendants. "NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, and so set about to create the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain," the complaint says.

Gee, George, sorry we pretty much declared you a racist in front of all of America before having all the facts, but Obama's all-in on this one and we're all-in for Obama and since you're a registered Democrat, we think you'll understand.

Zimmerman's suing NBC, Martin's parents are (probably) suing Zimmerman - isn't it time that someone sued the one actor in this case whose motives were most provably malign?

Maybe this is a first small step in sending Corey to join Mike Nifong in disgraced-former-prosecutor obscurity. Ben Kruidbos, Corey's former director of information technology, was fired after testifying at a pre-trial hearing on June 6 that prosecutors failed to turn over potentially embarrassing evidence extracted from Martin's cell phone to the defense, as required by evidence-sharing laws. "We will be filing a whistleblower action in (Florida's Fourth Judicial District) Circuit Court," said Kruidbos' attorney Wesley White, himself a former prosecutor who was hired by Corey but resigned in December because he disagreed with her prosecutorial priorities. He said the suit will be filed within the next 30 days...
