Ted Cruz came out recently and claimed that the first amendment would be amended to allow congress to regulate speech. I am flabbergasted. This would be horrible, I have no idea if it is true or not.

Attempting to gather video content for a story, 22-year-old Matthew Grunert, a college student with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and computer science, was detained by three police officers Wednesday for alleged “suspicious activity.” Well within his legal rights, police let Grunert go after being detained for more than 20 minutes, unable to find any wrongdoing.
This year is on cruise control. Memorial Day, already?
The older you get the faster the ride goes.
Maybe that is why many of us have felt an urge to slow down, get off the ride and smell the flowers instead of going to the amusement park every day?
The Internet can be a roller coaster...it's fast and fun, but too many rides too often can lead to information overload.
Hey man, slow down!
The Syrian opposition's recent lobbying blitz on Capitol Hill is beginning to pay off, with the Senate's Defense bill recognizing the Western-backed rebels as a US ally in the war on terror.
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) "authorizes the Secretary of Defense to provide equipment, training, supplies, and defense services to assist vetted members of the Syrian opposition," according to a summary of the bill released May 23.
Help Gordon Martines become the next Sheriff of Clark County, Nevada by donating to the "Rock The Boat" moneybomb this weekend. Gordon Martines is the only candidate for Sheriff who visited the Bundy Ranch and as Sheriff he will not enforce the "Blue Card Law" that requires Clark County residents to register their handguns. He is also against the NDAA. Gordon is a lifetime member of Oath Keepers and as Sheriff he will require all LVMPD employees to carry a copy of the Constitution with them at all times. The moneybomb began on May 23rd and will end on May 25th.
"The Obama administration has quietly adjusted key provisions of its signature healthcare law to potentially make billions of additional taxpayer dollars available to the insurance industry if companies providing coverage through the Affordable Care Act lose money.
The move was buried in hundreds of pages of new regulations issued late last week. It comes as part of an intensive administration effort to hold down premium increases for next year, a top priority for the White House as the rates will be announced ahead of this fall's congressional elections.
The Feds are going to make this as difficult as possible.

WASHINGTON — Delivering a major blow to state-licensed pot growers in Washington state and Colorado, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation said today it will not allow any federally-controlled water to be used on marijuana crops.
“As a federal agency, Reclamation is obligated to adhere to federal law in the conduct of its responsibilities to the American people,” said Dan DuBray, the agency’s chief of public affairs.
The decision could hit particularly hard in Washington state, with the federal agency controlling the water supply for two-thirds of Washington state’s irrigated land.
Growers in Colorado will be less affected because the state allows only indoor pot farms.
POLICY MIC - The news: Colorado's pot sales are booming.
The state's Department of Revenue reports that marijuana retailers sold nearly $19 million in recreational weed in March, up from $14 million in February. The first three months of legal weed have netted about $7.3 million in taxes, not including medical marijuana sales taxes and licenses, which bring the number to $12.6 million. In it's first few months, Colorado could already soon be outpacing those historic first-day sales on a daily basis.
Retail marijuana sales taxes brought in $1.4 million in January, $1.43 million in February and now $1.898 million in March — a clear upward trajectory. And total marijuana tax transfers and distributions went from $2.927 million in January to $4.077 million in March. And perhaps more importantly, while it's still somewhat early, the up-trending numbers indicate that initial sales weren't simply the result of "new-toy" excitement wherein everyone was buying pot just because they could. Coloradans wanted marijuana before, and they still do now.
May Camelopardalids. The peak of the shower will be between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. EDT, Saturday morning. It doesn’t matter where in the sky you’re looking, even though the meteors will be coming out of the north. Scientist expect it to be mind blowing.
WA-04 LIBERTY Candidate Gavin Seim: Renews his vehicle licence... Gets roughed up for asking "Where is the weapons lock box?"Submitted by raptoracid on Fri, 05/23/2014 - 11:54
Stand on principle - These days even renewing a vehicle license is risky.
WA-04 LIBERTY Congressional Candidate Gavin Seim was surrounded by 3 Ephrata police officers and contract security guards, grabbed, and patted down. Why? Because he asked for the legally required weapons check "lock-box" at the Courthouse.
