All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


mom guilty?

Of course she is guilty.  She did in fact break the law
Gavan told a court on Tuesday that she took desperate measures to get her son, Clayton, now 19, clean. She slept next to him as he shook and sweated through withdrawals. She enrolled him in a new school to keep him away from a bad crowd. She sent him off to live with relatives and even took him to work with her.
But a jury decided she went too far when she struck the 22-year-old man who helped supply heroin to her son with a baseball bat.
Technically she broke the law, so this isn't a case of miscarried justice.  Still had I been on the jury, I don't know that I would have voted to convict.  I do know that had I been the prosecuting attorney I would have found a case more worthy of my time and taxpayer resources to prosecute.

    I wonder sometimes if the only purpose the criminal justice system has left is to keep the White people obeying the law. Because if they stop, then all the rules change.
