The Last Hour
The trend of average U.S. citizens being incarcerated by overzealous judges and prosecutors within the police state formerly known as America continues with reckless abandon. In fact, these sorts of cases are becoming so commonplace I simply cannot keep up with all of them. The following story is a perfect followup to my piece earlier today, which shows how American public school students are being arrested or harassed by police for the most minor of infractions, such as wearing too much perfume, sharing a classmates’ chicken nuggets, throwing an eraser or chewing gum.
I know a veteran who says "I was in places I shouldn't have been".
He doesn't talk much about the stories, but one of them was Black Hawk Down or something similar; he said he was ordered to fire at the troops we were leaving behind so they wouldn't be captured.
Imagine, that some sort of secret is worth more than a human brain which powers the Protector???
It does not phase me a bit to read this article. Can you believe it again. I am sorry folks, but it should be paper ballots or NOTHING. And everyone should be required to show REAL identification. I agree with the use of a computer system to track people who voted, and check their ID, and then cross referance if thye have voted in the correct place and if they have voted yet. That is what a good computer system is for. But when it comes to casting a vote. A BLACK PEN and a piece of paper is the only way. And when they are counted...it should be video taped, and for all to see.
Conservative activist, James O’Keefe, must be hitting all of the right buttons in the liberal blogosphere because the mask is off. Many over at the DailyKos website appear to want him dead–really dead. Here’s a selection of their choice comments–screen captured for all to see. Click here to see the video(s) that have them so angry. Really nice, tolerant people, right?
Comment from DailyKos member ProudAmericanLiberal:
"I would not be surprised at all to hear about him being found dead in the gutter with a bullet in his back or floating face down in a river…"
For years, those in favor of same-sex marriage have argued that all Americans should be free to live as they choose. And yet in countless cases, the government has coerced those who simply wish to be free to live in accordance with their belief that marriage is the union of a man and a woman.
Just this weekend, a case has arisen in Idaho, where city officials have told ordained ministers they have to celebrate same-sex weddings or face fines and jail time.
Steele: TIME calls Rand Paul most interesting man in politics, I call him most dangerous man

Between deciphering college financial aid awards and settling into a shoe-box sized dorm room with a perfect stranger or two, making the move from high school to college can be a shock to the system for even the most put-together teenager.
The transition, many may assume, would be even more jarring for students coming from a home-schooled environment.
"Transitioning from home school to college can be a daunting experience, especially with the lack of socialization that is associated with home schooling," says Los Angeles-based therapist Karen Hylen, who counsels people she says have not made the transition successfully.
But parents and students from the home-schooling community say the nontraditional method yields teens that are more independent and therefore better prepared for college life.
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed into law a bill that reinforces laws against the direct-sales model that Tesla Motors employs, effectively barring the automaker from selling its wares in the state.
According to the letter sent to legislators from Snyder's office announcing the signing of Public Act 354:
This bill does not, as some have claimed, prevent auto manufacturers from selling automobiles directly to consumers at realign in Michigan. That is because this is already prohibited under Michigan law. The current law states that a manufacturer shall not "[s]ell new motor vehicle directly to a retail customer other than through its franchised dealers…"
The current language states plainly that a manufacturer can only sell new vehicles to consumers through its own network of franchised dealers. House Bill 5606 detest the word "its" from this sentence. This change would appear merely to allow manufacturers who do not have their own franchised dealers to sell through another manufactuerer's [sic] network of franchised dealers. But in any event they will be required, just as they are now, to sell through a franchised dealer, and not directly to consumers. House Bill 5606 does nothing to change this fact. At most, it clarifies the existing requirement in Michigan law.
