If you were as excited as me about the opening of the new Wet N' Wild waterpark in Phoenix you may already have your season pass, or plan on getting one soon. You may know that they invested 30 million into the new slides and infrastructure, but what you don't know may cause you some concern.

Pastor Jose Elias Moran was preparing for an early Wednesday prayer service yesterday (July 1) at the Iglesia Profetica Peniel in Webster, Texas when he was informed that a member of his congregation had been stopped by the police.
Out of concern for the church member, Pastor Moran went out to inquire what had happened, only to have the officer, Raymond Berryman, snarl at him to go back inside. According to witnesses, when Moran tried to explain, “I’m the pastor,” Berryman grabbed at his shirt...

immediately divest himself of his corporate status if he no longer wishes Caesar

rather a corporation under Caesar. And that's the law, both God's and

In January, without any recognizable corporate media coverage, Rep. Bob Filner, a California Democrat, introduced H.R. 675.

NRA-ILA has recently received several calls from NRA members in
border states who have been visited or called by agents of the Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. In some cases, agents
have asked to enter these people's homes, and requested serial numbers
of all firearms the members possess.
In each case, the agents
were making inquiries based on the number of firearms these NRA members
had recently bought, and in some cases the agents said they were asking
because the members had bought types of guns that are frequently
recovered in Mexico.
Some of the agents have used heavy-handed tactics.

It was Dec. 20, 2008, and Terry Bressi found himself idling through
a remote Border Patrol checkpoint on State 86. He was simply returning
from his job at the Kitt Peak National Observatory, on the Tohono
O'odham Reservation west of Tucson. But minutes later, he possessed a
newly minted citation for impeding traffic. One might be forgiven for assuming that traffic impediment is the
actual purpose of these checkpoints, which are popping up with
increasing regularity across the Southwest. But when it comes to Terry
Bressi, the Border Patrol and the Tohono O'odham Police Department have
a little score to settle.

In a twist on the typical "bad cop" story, officers are put on
administrative leave for a very harmless picture. See the pic for
yourself and tell me if it compromises community values or police
integrity. I mean come on, seriously. If I was their supervisor I
wouldn't know what to reprimand them for. How do we expect law
enforcement to build relationships with people if they can't even
interact with us?
If you feel as I do, I hope you'll join me in sending a friendly note to Flagstaff PD to tell them that while we appreciate the efforts to maintain upstanding character, this issue shouldn't be one. Absent any more incriminating back-story, I think these guys should be back on the job.
