Intent to Deceive

Darrell Hull-3-newsblast.jpg

 

Should the deliberate act of altering a document with the intent to deceive voters be considered unethical behavior?

Should unethical behavior by a person seeking elected office, especially to the office of County Sheriff, be condoned?

Hull Voting Guide-2.jpg

As you can see, the document to the right above was deliberately altered. On a copy of the same document (above left), Sheriff Larry Fowler’s name was removed and replaced by the name Darrell Hull.

Libertarian files for Parker County sheriff

5de57ce3638f8.image.jpg

Another candidate has filed in the race for Parker County sheriff and Russell Hess, 48, Libertarian, said he has a plan to bring the county together and save taxpayer dollars.

Hess filed on Nov. 18 and has been self-employed for the majority of his life.

“I grew up in Ranger, Texas, went to school there, and then I moved around when I was about 18-19 — my dad and I went into the convenience store business. I was in the convenience store business for several years, I think from 1990 to 2000,” Hess said. “I’ve been self-employed my whole life. I got into the shipping container business and have been doing that ever since 2000 and I’ve had a gun store for two or three years, so that’s pretty much what I’m doing now.”

Healthcare assistants back nursing home minimum staffing proposal

McKnight's Long Term Care News Danielle Brown, December 1, 2019

The National Association of Health Care Assistants is supporting a legislative proposal that would implement minimum staffing requirements for nursing homes. Nursing home providers have criticized the proposed bill.

The organization last week disclosed its support of the Quality Care for Nursing Home Residents Act (S.2943), which was introduced by Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) in November. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) also introduced the proposal (H.R. 5216) in the House.

Sheriff’s Tips: The Good Samaritan

American Rifleman, by Jim Wilson, November 25, 2019

samaritan.jpg

When I have the time, and weather permits, I like to go for a walk and get a little exercise. In my little town, it is the rare day that two or three people don’t stop and ask if I need a ride. Quite a bit of America is still that way—taking the time to help others. However, a person needs to keep in mind that there is a darker element in our society and the helpful citizen can quickly become just another victim.

Recently, in a force-on-force scenario, a student, who happened to be an EMT, saw a young woman lying crumpled by the side of a path. He rushed to her side to render aid only to see her roll over and run a rubber knife across his throat. In the debriefing, he told the instructor that he was an EMT and just had to render aid. The instructor told him that he used to be an EMT—now he was just a dead man.

Fear & Loading: Facts from the Latest FBI Report

Fear & Loading: Facts from the Latest FBI Report

Two hundred and ninety-eight felons died in 2018 “… during the commission of a felony …” when armed private citizens shot the attackers, according to the FBI’s latest release from its Uniform Crime Reporting Program. The statistical study does not inventory the more common encounters when a civilian’s presentation, declaration or firing of a self-defense firearm was effective at stopping other perpetrators.

A Message For Gavin Newsom Regarding Red Flag Laws

A Message For Gavin Newsom Regarding Red Flag Laws

Photo of CA Gov. Gavin Newsom

The US Constitution — our individual Bill of Rights — says the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Those are the words from our Second Amendment, an individual right that enables the law-abiding US citizen guarantee of self-defense, and defense from an intrusive, onerous, tyrannical government.

What I just stated in the above paragraph is objective truth, non-debatable, and rooted in our founding documents and principles. As well, many of our state constitutions back up exactly what I asserted. It is not subjective or mere opinion. However, consistent with the rhetoric of Rahm Emanuel — who said “never let a good crisis go to waste,” — progressive socialists are doing what they always do: finding a means to disarm citizens. That, as well, is not debatable and has been evidenced throughout history by every socialist, fascist, communist, or imperialist dictator.

A Pair Of Academics Question Gun-Control Orthodoxy

A Pair Of Academics Question Gun-Control Orthodoxy

Given that so much gun-policy research is explicitly funded by individuals hostile to our rights, gun owners are right to be skeptical of many academics. However, there are times when well-respected academics have proven confident enough to challenge the prevailing anti-gun orthodoxies. Such is the case with recent pieces from James Alan Fox, professor of criminology, law, and public policy at Northeastern University, and Thomas Abt, research fellow at Harvard Kennedy School of Government.

In a July 23 item for USA Today, Fox pondered why a recent mass killing in Kyoto, Japan, did not garner significant attention in the U.S. media. On July 18, a man entered the Kyoto Animation studio and doused parts of the building with an accelerant and screamed “drop dead” or “die!” before setting the building ablaze. The resulting fire killed 34 people and injured more than 30.
