    Thank goodness government is getting more involved in health care so we can finally put a stop to sick and injured people using too many painkillers. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced this week that the city is going to sharply restrict supplies of painkillers at the city’s emergency rooms to combat a rampant addiction problem. Yours, not his. I have to clarify that point, because otherwise you may have the impression that “Nanny Michael” is addicted to power, and being a bit of a bully. … “The city hospitals we control,” he said Friday in response to critics, “so...

    A public university plans to offer a course this spring on “sibling incest in theory and literature,” Campus Reform learned on Tuesday. Professor Stefani Engelstein will teach a class this spring focused on “sibling incest.” According to the University of Missouri’s official description, the class will “examine the deployment of erotic desire, love, and sympathy as political, economic, and textual strategies, and analyze the gender dynamics involved in such deployment.” Professor Stefani Engelstein of the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies will teach class in hour-long sessions twice a week.

    The Smoking Gun ^ | January 13, 2013 | Smoking Gun Staff
    At the time of his suicide, Aaron Swartz was preparing for a crucial hearing in his federal criminal case, likely his best chance to thwart federal prosecutors who had developed solid evidence against the Internet activist who was facing an April trial on a 13-count felony indictment. The 26-year-old Swartz, who killed himself Friday in his Brooklyn apartment, was scheduled for a January 25 evidentiary hearing in U.S. District Court in Boston, Massachusetts. Lawyers for Swartz were seeking to suppress material gathered in connection with Swartz’s breach of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology computer network. The January 2011 incursion netted...

    Citi Reveals The Most Likely Debt Ceiling Endgame, And Why It's Bad News For The US Dollar Joe WeisenthalJanuary 13, 2013CitiFX guru Steven Englander has a new note out this evening titled: No coin + temporary debt ceiling extension + sequester = USD negative. In it he notes that the rejection of the trillion dollar coin idea to avert the debt ceiling is not alone a market moving event, but that the hard language taken by the White House that the choices boil down to clean lift or default raises the odds of a debt ceiling breach. His take: So...

    Worrying About Finances? Here’s A Message From Jesus…Jan 4th, 2013 by Gary ZimakAs the author of a book on anxiety, I do a lot of speaking about the topic. As a result, I’ve met many people who are worried about lots of things. Somewhere near the top of the list are those who are struggling financially. Many people don’t know how they will pay their rent, buy food or pay their bills. Jesus has a clear message about this matter. It has nothing to do with financial irresponsibility or burying one’s head in the sand. Rather, it’s a reminder that...

    Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier ^ | 1/13/13 | Dennis Clayson
    Anyone who uses the term "fair share" when writing or talking about government revenues should be required to take a physical. We need to discover if they are indeed alive. One can see them figuratively as zombies shuffling down the street, driven by an unquenchable appetite to eat the rich. Instead of growling, they keep repeating "fair share, fair share." Their brains are no longer alive, but they are automated nevertheless by a virus spread by political demagogues who gain power by creating social class enmity and propagating greed. The ironies inherent in the "fair share" demagogues are delicious, if...

  • Iran unable to get life-saving drugs due to international sanctions

    The Guardian ^ | Sunday 13 January 2013 13.20 EST | Julian Borger and Saeed Kamali Dehghan
    Hundreds of thousands of Iranians with serious illnesses have been put at imminent risk by the international sanctions, due to dire shortages of life-saving medicines such as chemotherapy drugs for cancer and bloodclotting agents for haemophiliacs. Western governments have built waivers into the sanctions regime in an effort to ensure that essential medicines get through, but those waivers conflict with blanket restrictions on banking, as well as bans on "dual-use" chemicals which might have a military application. "Sometimes companies agree to sell us drugs but we have no way of paying them. On one occasion, our money was in the...

    WASHINGTON -- Retired Gen. Colin Powell offered a vigorous defense of Chuck Hagel’s nomination as the next Defense secretary, even as the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee added questions about Hagel’s temperament to lawmakers’ other concerns about the nominee, particularly his position on Israel. Powell, former secretary of State to President George W. Bush and a widely respected member of the GOP, had voiced strong support for Hagel shortly after President Obama named the former Nebraska senator as his choice to replace Leon E. Panetta. On Sunday, Powell spelled out further why he regards Hagel as “superbly...
  • From Same-Sex Marriage to Polygamy and Polyandry

    American Thinker ^ | January 5, 2013 | James M. Arlandson
    I keep hearing same-sex marriage (SSM) activists assuring us that no one else will legally redefine the essence of marriage, after they enjoy the privilege of doing so. It's a red herring to distract us from the real issue: redefining it for them alone. But if we redefine marriage for one group, there's no logical reason to deny other nonconformist advocates their right to do so, especially if they successfully argue their version of marriage on utilitarian grounds -- it benefits or does no harm to society. I don't know who invented the slippery slope fallacy, but he or she...

    A complaint was filed on Sunday to the police against Arab MK Ahmed Tibi on suspicion of incitement, racism and contempt for state symbols. The complaint was filed by Eliyahu Nissim, a member of the Otzma LeYisrael party, headed by MKs Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari. Eliyahu explained that he filed the complaint since, "a few days ago Tibi posted on his Facebook page a picture that depicts himself with the Arabic caption 'Allahu Akbar on you' with small pictures of dogs made up of the symbols of the Star of David, the State emblem and the flag of the...

Vancouver-based Generating for Seven Generations, or G7G, is expecting to know whether it will get C$40 million in financing to study the feasibility of its plan to build a rail line from Alberta to Alaska to connect with the Valdez Marine Terminal, while a coalition of railroads and producers is scheduled to decide whether it will conduct an experimental shipment of 2 million barrels of crude this summer through the Hudson Bay port at Churchill, Manitoba, to...

    Nate Silver, the New York Times’ FiveThirtyEight blogger and statistician who rose to prominence accurately predicting sports and elections, has run the numbers and has come to a conclusion: The Seahawks, he predicts, will play in the Super Bowl. There, they’ll take on the New England Patriots, Silver thinks. And while the Seahawks may not be the second-best team in the NFL — Silver says that’s probably the Denver Broncos — they may just be the best team in the NFC. “There’s always uncertainty with any metric,” Silver told ESPN’s “First Take.” “I do think with a Seattle team that...
