Yesterday I heard this NPR report and it upset and disgusted me. The headline was interesting: “When States Can't Control Violent Youth, Is Prison The Answer?”
More than 4,000 children are in the custody of Connecticut's Department of Children and Families. But it's one girl, known as Jane Doe, who has galvanized advocates for juvenile justice reform and LGBT youth.
Last month, a Connecticut judge approved a rare request from the state's child welfare agency: to move the 16-year-old transgender Read more [...]
I had to laugh when I saw these pictures. Now you know Climate Change supporters are feeling the pressure of reality! They're resorting to "artist's renderings" of the coming apocalypse—scare tactics to get their way, since the science is leaning in the very opposite direction.
Reading about what climate change means for the future is one thing - seeing pictures of it is entirely different.
Using data which estimates possible future sea level rises from melting ice caps, artist Nickolay Lamm Read more [...]
Meriam Ibrahim's death sentence is now official. The wife of an American citizen, and mother of two Americans, is to be flogged and hanged for the "crimes" of being a Christian, and marrying a Christian. To be clear: although the charge is apostasy, she has never been a Muslim; although the other charge is adultery, it is for having relations with her husband.
From al-Arabia News:
A Sudanese woman doctor who married a Christian man was sentenced to death on Thursday for converting to Christianity, Read more [...]
KVOA Tucson has a great video of their news story but I couldn’t see a way to embed it here. Here is a portion of their text story:

Karen Gonzales, 60, was viciously beaten in broad daylight in one of the park restrooms.
She suffered a brain injury and is now walking with a limp. She tells News 4 Crime Trackers, "I will never forget his face coming at me."

OK... so I have an envelope on my desk this very moment to open a new card account with SunTrust.
Then I noticed this story from the Daily Caller: “Exclusive: SunTrust Cuts Business Ties With Benham Brothers After Conservative Views Attacked.”
First they lost their television show. Now the Benham brothers say they are losing their business.
SunTrust Banks is cutting ties with would-be reality stars David and Jason Benham after liberal activists attacked them for their conservative views Read more [...]
I think our government is running a secret program to make Robo-cows to enforce this nation's dairy regulations.
How else do you explain the U.S. Department of Agriculture putting out requests for submachine guns and body armor?
Earlier this month, the USDA solicited dealers for an unknown number of .40-caliber submachine guns. The requested weapons would include night sights, rails for flashlight attachments, 30-round clips and oversized trigger guards for use by gloved hands.
If that wasn't Read more [...]
The price of meat has not spiked this high in one month since November, 2003, according to Zero Hedge. It rose almost three percent in April.
According to our leaders, this is good news.
USA Today reported,
Wholesale prices rose sharply last month, driven up partly by higher prices for meat and other foods.
The producer price index, which measures changes in the prices of goods and services that companies buy, increased 0.6% in April, the Labor Department said Wednesday.
Although inflation Read more [...]
I have no idea if Tim Donnelly has a chance of beating Jerry Brown or not. I don’t have much of an idea of how good a governor he would be. It is hard to imagine him being worse than Brown. My main worry is I don’t see why anyone would want the responsibility of trying to fix California. Financially, it looks like mission impossible.
But the “mainstream” Republican contender makes me sick at my stomach. Did everyone else know that Neel Kashkari identified himself Read more [...]
Looks like the Bundy-effect is spreading faster than MERS.
Let freedom ring... let the Feds sulk!
From the Washington Times: “State officials slap feds: New Mexico board orders Forest Service fence opened.”
A New Mexico county board on Monday instructed the local sheriff to open the Forest Service gates blocking thirsty cattle from reaching water, setting up a clash with federal agents over state water rights and endangered species.
The Otero County Commission voted 2-0, with one commissioner Read more [...]
From Fox News: “Price for Nevada dad to see state's school files on his kids: $10G.”
Nevada dad John Eppolito got a bad case of sticker shock when he asked state education officials to see the permanent records of his four children.
He was told it would cost $10,194.
A Lake Tahoe-area real estate agent by trade and a fierce opponent of Common Core, Eppolito was concerned about Nevada's recent decision to join a multi-state consortium that shares students’ data. He wanted to know exactly Read more [...]
Ah, the truth about how Progressivism succeeds!
Step One: Create sham companies where you can funnel billions of taxpayer dollars, and pay people enough that (most of the time) they will keep quiet about the fact they're earning $17 per hour to do NOTHING!!
Step Two: Live high on stolen taxpayer money, while recycling a good chunk of it back into more Progressive causes to create additional scams.

The government gives Deputy Lee Dove a badge and a gun. This is what happened next.
From Police State USA:
After a successful run at the casinos in Las Vegas, a man carrying a large sum of cash fell victim to a thieving police officer on his way back to California. Without charging him with a crime or even giving him a speeding ticket, the cop seized 50,000 and let him go. This practice of highway robbery is perfectly legal.
