Next: Wild horses targeted for roundup in Utah rangeland clash

By Jennifer Dobner | Reuters
April 11, 2014

ENTERPRISE, Utah - A Utah county, angry over the destruction of federal rangeland that ranchers use to graze cattle, has started a bid to round up federally protected wild horses it blames for the problem in the latest dustup over land management in the U.S. West.

Close to 2,000 wild horses are roaming southern Utah's Iron County, well over the 300 the U.S. Bureau of Land Management has dubbed as appropriate for the rural area's nine designated herd management zones, County Commissioner David Miller said.

County officials complain the burgeoning herd is destroying vegetation crucial to ranchers who pay to graze their cattle on the land, and who have already been asked to reduce their herds to cope with an anticipated drought.

DOJ: Albuquerque Police 'Executing' Citizens

Following release of report, rights groups calling for removal of mayor and police chief

bt Lauren McCauley, staff writer Common Dreams

Residents of Albuquerque, New Mexico are marching on the police department Saturday to demand retribution against the city's mayor and police chief for their role in the police force's documented "execution" of citizens.

The march comes after the Department of Justice slammed the Albuquerque Police Department for their frequent use of excessive and lethal force in a damning report released on Thursday.

Though, according to advocates, abuse by local law enforcement has been systemic for years, calls for increased scrutiny of the APD were amplified following the police shooting death of James Boyd, a homeless man suffering from mental illness, on March 16.

Alex Jones on Nearly Every Commercial Break Today on the History Channel

I know, I know. Shouldn't even be watching this questionable channel. But I am a sucker for Modern Marvels and a few other shows not actually pertaining to history on that channel.

I've been doing my Taxes (Ugh) while having History Channel on in the background for the last 5 hours or so. I have seen Alex Jones nearly every commercial break talking about the NSA. I guess he is featured on an episode of "America's Book of Secrets" about Big Brother.

Edwin Vieira, Jr - Article V Convention: A Titanic Irrelevance

By Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.
April 7, 2014 | NewsWithViews.com

The more I inflict upon myself the details of the on-going, extensive, and increasingly acrimonious debate about the supposed merits or demerits of what is called an “Article V Convention of the States”, the more my mind returns to the scene I have imagined taking place on Titanic. Having struck the iceberg, the great liner is down fifteen degrees by the head, and sinking fast, while in the Grand Salon her designer Mr. Andrews, Captain Smith, and a gaggle of marine engineers are discussing a new ship, to be built according to a new design which supposedly will obviate the flaw in Titanic that contributed to her demise. While in theory this discussion might have been very illuminating to the participants, it obviously would otherwise have been an irrelevance which could have saved neither Titanic nor a single soul who went down with her.

Cars Seized as Carpooling Now Illegal in Some Cities

Ridesharing - also known as carpooling - involves members of the public contacting each other via a smartphone or PC internet networking service and arranging to ferry each other to various destinations for fees. The practice in informal form is almost as old as the automobile itself, but in the digital age app-enabled ridesharing has seen an explosion in interest, threatening the commercial taxicab industry and the city officials who depend on that industry for revenue.

Obama Says He May Or May Not Let the NSA Exploit the Next Heartbleed

The White House has joined the public debate about Heartbleed. The administration denied any prior knowledge of Heartbleed, and said the NSA should reveal such flaws once discovered. Unfortunately, this statement was hedged. The NSA should reveal these flaws unless 'a clear national security or law enforcement need' exists (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/13/us/politics/obama-lets-nsa...). Since that can be construed to apply to virtually any situation, we're left with the same dilemma as before: do we take them at their word or not?
