Christian News Network, CNN?
Today there was a "special" on the life of Jesus on CNN. A program such as that has its place, and in my opinion, should not be on a "News" channel. "Unbiased" and "neutral" news does not "feature" a program on specific religious figure from a specific group of religions.
The choice of their programming gives me concern. The History Channel, religion channels, and other network channels can, and should, do whatever they want within reason.

The portions of the tapes being disputed focused, in part, on statements about jurors determining "guilt or innocence" of a defendant.
"They're never instructed to find if a person is innocent," Goodrow said.

Berlin Colleague Rules Against Him
A Swingers Club event was busted by cops in Connecticut. Were the cops angry they weren't given some "protection" sex, or did the operators not know which liquor commission official to bribe, not to get shut down?
A Connecticut bar owner told me he was a target of a police sting, and set up, as his father owned the bar previously, and the liquor control agent who the father bribed, retired. The son didn't know who to bribe, and was then allegedly targeted to lose his business and to go to prison. [Peter Griffin's Cadillac Ranch, Southington, Connecticut, story, scroll down]
Police in Connecticut can be too busy sleeping with prostitutes, hanging out with drug dealers, and starting criminal motorcycle gangs to answer citizens' calls into police. [story]
The Connecticut State Police have spent decades making false arrests, manufacturing evidence, beating citizens up, raping women [video testimony] and underage girls, committing thefts, and even murdering citizens who make police misconduct complaints. It is time to end the armed occupation of Connecticut. The below story of Peter Riley is all too typical. Is there still "Gay Bashing" going on within the ranks of the Connecticut State Police?

In 1973, 51-year-old Barbara Gibbons of Falls Village, Connecticut was killed in a brutal attack in her home. She suffered stab wounds and broken bones. She was also sexually mutilated. Police immediately focused their investigation on the victim's 18-year-old son Peter Reilly.
American Justice: "A Son's Confession" reveals that Peter told police he came home and discovered his mother lying on the bedroom floor in a pool of blood. At police headquarters, alone and without legal counsel, Reilly was detained and interrogated for over 25 hours. He eventually succumbed to exhaustion, hunger, confusion and grief, and confessed to the gruesome murder.

A Call to Patriots
The Constitution, the long held sacred document that has guaranteed liberty and freedom for 232 years in this once great republic has become in these strange days little more than a piece of paper, a relic of history.
Politicians once sworn to uphold the truth and rule of law now interpret and make changes as they see fit in order to grant themselves power that the constitution once sought to limit in order to prevent tyranny and abuse.
The Corporation now is protected and held in higher esteem than the citizen. Taxation without representation is the norm once again, one of the very reasons the American revolution was fought 2 centuries ago.
The Federal Reserve, a private corporation and the IRS were created in the shadows of Liberty under the guise of financial equality and now taxes the citizen of nearly half their hard earned wages.
Laws that erode civil liberties and are blatantly unconstitutional are approved in the name of protection and security, and are now common place as draconian legislation is transforming this once free land into an Orwellian state. Fascism and corruption now occupy all facets of Government, with very few who even attempt to uphold liberty or speak out against such things.
The Citizen for the most part, has become a complacent uninformed and ignorant shell of what used to be. Patriotism itself has been morphed into blind obedience of state approved propaganda, where citizens are told it is unpatriotic to question their government.
It was once said that dissent was the highest form of patriotism. That the government should fear the people, and that it was the duty of the people to rise up and flush out these kinds of evil if they were ever allowed to fester like an open sore. The type of evil we now see running freely without oversight, without checks and balances, with free reign to spend and tax and subvert truth at every corner.
The two party system has become 2 sides of the same coin, bought and paid for by the highest bidders. Left vs. Right, Liberal vs. Conservative has become an illusion used to divide and conquer the masses into argument over the simplest things, while distracting from an agenda geared towards destroying freedom and replacing it gradually over time with a zombie like state of passive sheep consumed with self loathing tendencies that over time replace the flame of liberty with the chains of mental slavery.
We have for the most part become a nation of codependent enablers. We are as guilty for the evils we now see for doing nothing for so long. And we now stand at the crossroads of choice and free will. A choice to stand up and resist or lay down and silently comply. One will test the very fiber of our souls, one will guarantee what the founding fathers fought to avoid.
Some say that some fights are not worth picking, that some issues are not the battle to wage. Anything that further restricts liberty is a stand that must be taken. As the saying goes, give an inch and they will take a mile.
Rights, guaranteed to free men by divine providence and liberty given on the basis of personal responsibility must not be intruded upon. Patriots are of a rare breed. Patriots must uphold equality and freedom for all, respect their fellow man, yet see clearly through illusions placed to distract from reason and logic. It is one thing to say something, another to do. Action speaks loudest in a room deafened by the ramblings of insane leaders suffering from delusions of grandeur.
The time has come for real Patriots to once again stand for truth, to never compromise the belief in Freedom and liberty for a second. To stand in the face of tyranny and beat it back to the dark shadows of greed it crawled out of. To not be distracted by the illusion of difference between these so called leaders of the past 20+ years, Bush, Clinton, or Obama, because there is NONE.
It is time to take a stand, as individuals and as a whole 232 years after freedom was once claimed and restore the republic. For if good men continue to do nothing, we will all reap the consequences of inaction and we shall bury lady liberty with our freedoms until a generation worthy of calling themselves free men once again rises to the occasion. The time has come to draw a line in the sand. To uphold the oaths of freedom against the most dangerous enemy of all, the enemy within. As peaceful as possible.
We must raise our consciousness from the gutters of mindlessness that has become this land of make believe, this 21st century digital dream and grasp reality once again. Clear and right thinking, truth and freedom, liberty and justice for all.....

Tauck V. Tauck: No End In Sight
In Record-Long Divorce Case, Wife Is Told To Complete Four-Week Alcohol Treatment Program
By LYNNE TUOHY | Courant Staff Writer
July 21, 2007
After three additional days of hearings this week in the record-length Tauck v. Tauck divorce case, the question of the "reasonableness" of $11 million spent to date on attorneys and expert witnesses is no closer to being resolved.
But Peter Tauck prevailed on several key custody and financial issues.
Superior Court Judge Holly Abery-Wetstone Friday severely limited Nancy Tauck's access to her children until she completes a four-week, inpatient alcohol treatment program. If Nancy Tauck refuses treatment, she will only be able to see the couple's four minor children - all between the ages of 5 and 10 - for one hour a week, in a visit supervised by parenting professionals.
Evidence showed Nancy Tauck failed an alcohol test administered June 26, the day after the marathon, 82-day divorce trial ended. This week's three-day hearing has further cemented the case's status as the lengthiest divorce trial in state history. Matrimonial law experts believe it has set a national record as well.
The length of the trial is due in large part to Nancy Tauck's allegations two years ago that Peter Tauck had child pornography on his laptop computer, and that he had molested two of their children. There was no substantiation of the second claim. More startling, as the trial unfolded, was the admission of considerable evidence suggesting Nancy Tauck "set up" her husband by downloading the images onto the laptop while he was in Tahiti. She filed for divorce two days after his return from that May 2005 trip.
Based on the severity of the original allegations and Nancy Tauck's contention that her husband was a flight risk because he faced a potential federal indictment and prison time, a judge in 2005 issued a prejudgment remedy freezing up to $20 million of Peter Tauck's assets to pay for attorneys' fees and other expenses.

Adultery, Acrimony And Millions In Spoils
March 25, 2005
By KENNETH R. GOSSELIN, Hartford Courant Staff Writer
In one of Fairfield's wealthiest enclaves, the bitter divorce of a business executive has ended with his jet-setting wife walking away with nearly $50 million in cash, homes, cars, jewelry and artwork.
The 25-year marriage ended with Howard Sosin, a one-time insurance executive, branding his wife, Susan, an adulteress. Susan Sosin said she suffered the loneliness of a golf widow.
In a 74-page divorce decree filed this week in Superior Court in Bridgeport, the slow, painful disintegration of the Sosins' marriage in their $16.2 million mansion on tony Sasco Hill Road is revealed in lurid detail: [more]
