I've been reading about a story out of South Carolina, where a mother who let her nine-year-old daughter play in a park - with dozens of other children and a cell phone - while the mother worked at a nearby McDonald's, was arrested for "abandoning" her child.

Obama's old law professor from Harvard thinks there's a chance it won't survive.

Quote
President Obama’s old Harvard Law professor, Laurence Tribe, said that he “wouldn’t bet the family farm” on Obamacare’s surviving the legal challenges to an IRS rule about who is eligible for subsidies that are currently working their way through the federal courts.

Of police brutality against blacks. This time it results in death.

A black woman gets manhandled in Tempe Arizona, a college professor at that.

A black woman gets pounded by a policeman on the side of a highway.

And now Eric Garner is dead for breaking up a fight.

Oh what a great turnaround we have had in America.

The Fiscal Fizzle

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/21/opinion/Paul-Krugman-An-Imaginary-Budget-and-Debt-Crisis.html?&_r=0

For much of the past five years readers of the political and economic news were left in little doubt that budget deficits and rising debt were the most important issue facing America. Serious people constantly issued dire warnings that the United States risked turning into another Greece any da...

Sebastian Gorka: Christian Holocaust Underway in Iraq, USA and World Look On

Robert Wilde
19 Jul 2014

When U.S. troops invaded Iraq in 2003, there were at least 1.5 million Christians in Iraq. Over the last ten years, significantly in the last few months with the emergence of ISIS, that figure has dropped to about 400,000.

By Dominic Evans and Raheem Salman
Jul 21, 2014

(Reuters) - The head of Iraq's largest church said on Sunday that Islamic State militants who drove Christians out of Mosul were worse than Mongol leader Genghis Khan and his grandson Hulagu who ransacked medieval Baghdad.

Chaldean Catholic Patriarch Louis Raphael Sako led a wave of condemnation for the Sunni Islamists who demanded Christians either convert, submit to thei...

If there's one sure way to get folks riled up - it's to slip into their counties and conduct operations in secret.

This type of policy is bound to backfire - and this is not an isolated case.

Since an elected sheriff is the highest law in a county - it bears out that the Feds would inform the sheriffs of what's going on.

The problem is growing and attempting to keep it a secret is going to have a rebound effect this Administration is probably not prepared for.
