As the saying goes, “There is nothing new under the sun.” Furthermore, those things that are hidden will probably come to light. Nevertheless, it is how we deal with the knowledge of these truths once light is shed on them that reveals our own character strengths and flaws. On this episode of The Axiom Amnesia Theory, Heit & Cheri give you commentary on just about everything under the sun, and shed light on plenty of foolishness in the process.
Topics discussed include reaction to yesterday’s show about Don Lemon, the Bradley Manning verdict, the difference between a personal preference and another person’s rights, widespread use of skin bleaching products, Black assimilation, people saying that Blacks were going to riot if Zimmerman got off for murder, a group of whites who rioted for no reason, people attempting to negate the great acts of others because of some indiscretion that had nothing to do with their achievements, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, President Clinton, Anthony Weiner, a speech Michael Eric Dyson gave about advancing MLK’s legacy, infidelity and the fact that people who are in high society positions are expected to be super-human, hero worship within the church, whether there were lots of child killers and molesters 100 years ago, serial killers, and more!

Bradley Manning acquitted of aiding the enemy for giving secrets to WikiLeaks
Bradley Manning, the 25-year-old Army private who gave thousands of classified U.S. military and diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks, was acquitted of aiding the enemy in a military court-martial, but was convicted on multiple other counts.
As CBS News correspondent David Martin reported, Manning had chosen to have his fate decided by a judge, Army Col. Denise Lind, rather than a military jury. Col. Lind gave no explanation for her verdict or why she was not convinced by the government’s contention that manning knew the material he provided to WikiLeaks would make its way to the enemy.
The charge of aiding the enemy was the most serious of 21 counts. It carried a possible life sentence without parole.
Manning was convicted of six espionage counts, five theft charges, a computer fraud charge and other military infractions. Manning’s sentencing hearing is set to begin Wednesday.
Manning pleaded guilty earlier this year to reduced versions of some charges. He faces up to 20 years in prison for those offenses, but prosecutors pressed ahead with the original eight federal Espionage Act violations, five federal theft counts, and two federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act violations, each punishable by up to 10 years; and five military counts of violating a lawful general regulation, punishable by up to two years each. All told, Manning faces a maximum of up to 136 years in prison for his various convictions. There is, however, no minimum sentencing requirements for Judge Lind to follow.
