We are now at the point, just three days removed from the verdict, where the mob demand for justice for Trayvon Martin has become a witch-hunt against George Zimmerman. I want to re-iterate that what happened to Trayvon Martin was indeed a tragedy. It is horrible that a 17 year old has lost his life. But in the court of law, the man who killed Trayvon Martin was found innocent of second-degree murder and manslaughter, based on the evidence presented. We must respect the jury's decision. We must also understand this - The jury's decision to acquit George Zimmerman had nothing to do with race. You know that, right? We've had a juror come forward and say that the issue of race was not discussed in their deliberations. The Martin family has said that this case was not about race, as has the prosecution. Yet here we are, a nation in a frenzy over the role that race supposedly played in this case. How did we get to that point? We got here because of three main reasons...(more)

A Rabbit Disaster Plan?
Do you want an example of just how dumb our government can be? The Washington Post has a story about a man named Marty Hahne. Marty is a magician, and in his act he uses a real, live rabbit. In order to use the rabbit in his act, Marty must obtain a license of the US Department of Agriculture under a law that regulates zoos, circuses and "animal exhibitors." But it gets worse. The government has issued a new rule, which requires Marty, with a rabbit license, to come up with...are you ready for this? ...a rabbit disaster plan! He explains that the government is requiring him to submit a plan on exactly how he would save the rabbit in the event of a fire, flood, tornado, lack of air conditioning, ice storm or power failure. You can't make this stuff up! Luckily the rule is being "re-examined," but this just speaks to the absurdity that is possible at the hands of big, bloated, bureaucratic government.
