    We've been here before, remember? A left-wing judge struck down the law on a procedural technicality in May of last year. The Wisconsin Supreme Court reversed a month later. Bet heavily that this will be reversed too, just because I suspect America's not quite ready to start throwing up constitutional roadblocks to fiscal reforms while states are already teetering on a fiscal cliff. Especially after Wisconsin held an election just three months ago where voters had a chance to effectively decide that issue. The law remains largely in force for state workers, though a federal judge struck down part of...

    – WASHINGTON (AP) — Heavily armed insurgents attacked a British air base in southern Afghanistan Friday, killing two U.S. Marines and wounding several other troops, U.S. officials said. Prince Harry, third in line to the British throne, is stationed at the base on a four-month combat tour. There was no immediate word on his whereabouts at the time of the attack. U.S. officials said the attack at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan's Helmand province involved a range of insurgent weaponry, possibly including mortars, rockets or rocket-propelled grenades, as well as small arms fire. Lt. Col. Stewart Upton, a spokesman at Camp...
  • Ryan Calls for ‘Moral Clarity’ in American Foreign Policy

    Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan called for U.S. foreign policy to have “moral clarity and firmness of purpose” in remarks today to the Family Research Council’s voter summit in Washington. His address followed criticism by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney of how President Barack Obama’s administration has handled attacks on U.S. diplomatic outposts this week in the Middle East. The presidential campaign has turned to foreign policy after four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed in Benghazi, Libya. The deaths and assaults on U.S. embassies in Egypt and Yemen followed publicity of film footage that mocked Muslims...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:When President Obama was meeting with members of his administration to decide whether to intervene in Libya's civil war in 2011, he polled everyone in the room - including low-level staff. "Of the choice not to intervene he says, 'That's not who we are,' by which he means that's not who I am. The decision was extraordinarily personal. 'No one in the Cabinet was for it,' says one witness. 'There was no constituency for doing what he did,'" writes Michael Lewis in Vanity Fair.The Lewis puff piece intended to show a president willing to translate personal compassion into...

    The Trademark Office says consumers are likely to think the term refers to the famous singer.On Wednesday, the estate of Ol' Blue Eyes successfully prevailed against a man who named his hot dog truck business "Franks Anatra" and attempted to trademark it. The United States Trademark Office's appeals board refused the application after Frank Sinatra LLC opposed it on grounds that it falsely suggested a connection with the dead singer. Bill Loizon, the trademark applicant, argued that the Sinatra estate was wrong in its notion that there was a Franks means “frankfurters, hot dogs, and other similar food items,” said...

(2 Corinthians 4:4) While America mourned the 11th anniversary of the Islamic attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, atheist radicals were throwing fuel on the fire. While millions were praying for the friends and families of precious souls lost, self-styled “progressives” were preying upon the most significant symbol of hope to which many of the grieving clung.

With few voters still on the fence, President Barack Obama holds leads over Mitt Romney in new polls of Ohio, Florida and Virginia, three of the states likely to determine who wins the White House in November. Mr. Obama has fought Mr. Romney to a draw on the question of which candidate is best equipped to grapple with the economy, the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist Poll surveys suggest. Mr. Romney's campaign is built largely on an argument that he can best reinvigorate the economy. Among likely voters, Mr. Obama leads Mr. Romney by seven percentage...

    Judge Strikes Down Wisconsin Law Restricting Union Rights By NBC News staff and news services A Wisconsin judge on Friday struck down the state law championed by Gov. Scott Walker that effectively ended collective bargaining rights for most public workers. Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas ruled Friday that the law violates the state and U.S. constitutions and is null and void. The law took away nearly all collective bargaining rights from most workers and has been in effect for more than a year. For city, county and school workers, the ruling returns the law to its previous status, before...

    Dartmouth College is welcoming students back to campus, and one of them feels especially happy-and lucky-to be there. Daniela Pelaez is an undocumented immigrant who came to this country with her parents from Colombia in 1999, when she was four. They outstayed their tourist visas, and her mother returned to Colombia. But Daniela stayed in Florida and avoided deportation. Now the class valedictorian will study molecular biology. In some ways she still can't believe she's shopping in the Dartmouth Bookstore. "When I was growing up... it seemed like an impossible dream that only the true American families send their kids...

Netanyahu, in a Rosh Hashana interview with The Jerusalem Post that will appear in full on Sunday, said his call for the United States and the international community to set red lines for Iran was not at all connected with the US political campaign. “It has nothing to do with the American elections, because the Iranian nuclear program doesn’t care about the American...

    Average retail gasoline prices have more than doubled under President Obama, according to government statistics, rising from $1.84 per gallon to $3.85 per gallon. The average gasoline price is calculated by the Energy Information Agency, and shows that over the past 43 months of President Obama’s term retail gasoline prices have more than doubled, rising from an average of $1.84 per gallon to $3.85 per gallon. Rising gasoline prices were particularly prevalent in August, which saw a 9.0 percent rise in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for gasoline, a rise that almost entirely accounts for the general increase in prices...

(AP) — A judge sentenced two Kentucky teenagers on Friday to community service and sex offender treatment for sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl who later identified her attackers on Twitter. Savannah Dietrich posted the boys' names on Twitter despite a gag order because she thought the initial plea deal in June was too lenient. She said she also was unaware a deal had been reached until just before it was announced. Jefferson County District Judge Angela McCormick Bisig slightly altered the initial deal, saying the pair, now 17 years old, may seek to have the sexual assault charges...

Microsoft alone employs 45,000 people in the United States and tens of thousands more worldwide. Officials from Microsoft and a host of other powerful companies say America isn't producing enough homegrown math and science experts and current laws prevent them from recruiting the best of those experts from overseas. Microsoft owns 120 satellite offices around the world, but it's in the United States where most of the company's innovation takes...

    As Americans were being targeted in Libya and Egypt, our governments continue to do business with people who hate us.   Just a week ago, Iowa's Governor Terry Branstad announced an incentive deal to bring Orascom Construction Industries to Iowa to build a fertilizer plant. The incentives are greater than Obama's stimulus plan, which the National Review estimated to cost $185,000 per job.   Branstad's package comes out to more than $700,000 per job. A separate package from Lee County Iowa comes out to $707,000 per job. On top of those two gifts, the federal government's Midwest Disaster Area bonds...

While Obama reiterated the assurance that the US won't allow Iran to manufacture a atomic bomb, he was unwilling to...

It's put together every monthly by Bill McBride at Calculated Risk, and it shows the trajectory of job losses in all of the various post-WWII recessions. This current recession (and recovery) is the bright red line. As you can see, the downtrend was far worse than anything else we'd seen since WWII, and the rise is far more meager than anything else we had seen.

    WASHINGTON (AP)—As Americans debate whether they are better off now than they were four years ago, there is a similar question with a somewhat easier answer: Are you safer now than you were when President Barack Obama took office? By most measures, the answer is yes. More than a decade after terrorists slammed planes into the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon and the Pennsylvania countryside, Americans have stopped fretting daily about a possible attack or stockpiling duct tape and water. Getting through airport security has become a routine irritation, not a grim foreboding. While the threat of...

    WASHINGTON — California Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman said at a press conference on immigration outside the Capitol Friday afternoon that America needs immigration reform to help those here illegally while also allowing them unionize for better wages. “We need a regular process by which the 12 million people who are part of our society can be fully part of our society, and they need documents,” the congressman said. “It’s important for the labor market of this country because as long as there are 12 million people without documents, there are 12 million people who can’t stand up for their rights...

    Federal authorities have identified a Coptic Christian in southern California who is on probation after his conviction for financial crimes as the key figure behind the anti-Muslim film that ignited mob violence against U.S. embassies across the Mideast, a U.S. law enforcement official told The Associated Press. The official said Thursday that authorities had concluded that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was behind “Innocence of Muslims,” a film that denigrated Islam and the prophet Muhammad and sparked protests earlier this week in Egypt, Libya and most recently in Yemen. It was not immediately clear whether Nakoula was the target of a...

    A Spring Garden man savagely beaten last summer by a bunch of teenagers has sued three of them for damages - and their mothers, for negligence. Timothy McCoy, 37, had just gotten off a bus and was walking to the movies when a group of about six to eight teens attacked him without provocation as he walked south on Fourth Street near Walnut about 2 p.m. on July 29, 2011, according to the lawsuit filed this month in Common Pleas Court.
