That meme, along with others, have been flying around Facebook nonstop as a rationale for us torturing terror suspects. You know who else uses images of atrocities against their people to promote and justify their actions? Terrorists. Yes, al Qaeda, ISIS, Hezzbollah - all do the exact same thing as these people are doing. So congratulations, you are now engaging in the same practice as the worst terrorists groups the world has ever scene, and are moronic enough to think that somehow justifies your patriotism. 

A recent hack at Sony, dubbed one of the worst in history, has compromised tons of internal company documents, including the social security numbers of countless actors. In response the FBI has issued a dire warning on some very serious malware showing up, and that could be part of this. A common mode of transportation that delivers malware is through illegally copied/pirated software. Sony, who has always been one that screams loudest about illegal copies of intellectual property, was caught in 2008 using loads of pirated software on their computers. Could they still be engaging in this practice and that lead to the hack?

Want A Fix To Police Relations?

With another cop walking free after killing a person, our country is searching for answers. Perhaps that answer isn't all that complicated.

Eric Gardner was killed by a copy for selling loose cigarettes and the cop doesn't face charges. In the same year Gardner's congressional representative threatens to throw a reporter off a balcony for asking about a federal investigation that lead to a 20 count indictment against him. That same congressman, Michael Grimm, also won re-election last month. And some people say our justice system is fine....

I'm sure you have all heard by now about the GOP staffer that resigned today after blasting the Obama girls on social media, accusing them of not showing "class". Well apparently class to Elizabeth Lauten means being a teenage criminal. It turns out that she was arrested for larceny at the age of 17. The charges were ultimately dropped, since it was a first offense. Of course if she were a black male at the time, then chances are she would have ended up in front of the firing squad, without a trial. 

As Ferguson Burns, A Little Perspective

Following the non-indictment of Darren Wilson, the attention has turned to the aftermath in Ferguson. Let's look at other riots we have seen.

Goes to Steven Kraus, a tea-partier from Ohio. He was indicted on burglary, theft and breaking and entering. This marks the first new indictment of the 114th. We already got some members under indictment, like Michael Grimm. At this rate we could see more scandal than the 109th, which just so happens to be the last time the Republicans controlled both houses of Congress. 

Perhaps the chicken should become the mascot of the Democratic Party. After running from their own platform and accomplishments this past cycle, they are hell bent on proving that they care nothing about principal, only polls. The latest act of treason against Democratic principals comes from congressional Democrats and the pending executive action on immigration. Now Democrats want President Obama to wait before taking any executive action. At this point, the Democrats might as well stay in the corner, cowering and capitulating to anything the Republicans want.

The Senate Democrats have created a new "liaison" leadership position for Elizabeth Warren. First reaction is that this sounds great, but the cynic in me can't help but wonder if this isn't some sort of lip-service to the progressive base from the stalwarts, like Harry Reid, which holds the job someone like Warren should have gotten.
