    Baltimore Sun ^ | 7/31/15 | Amanda Yeager and Meredith Cohn
    Healthy options are coming to Howard County, but some think the carrot is a stick.Four of five Howard County Council members, all Democrats, voted Friday to overturn County Executive Allan Kittleman's veto of a bill that creates nutritional guidelines for the food and drinks sold in government vending machines.Kittleman, the county's first Republican executive since 1998, framed the issue as one of choice for workers and visitors to county buildings, even if that means they choose fluorescent orange doodles chased by a bubbly soda."I trust Howard County residents and employees to make their own decisions about what to eat," Kittleman...
  • What are your (non-conservative) acquaintances saying about abortion videos?

    Today CMP released their 4th and most disturbing video yet. I've had a good idea what abortion is about so I shouldn't have been shocked, yet I could barely handle it. I'm curious, what have you heard from non- conservatives about it? (I'm not talking evil hardcore leftists). My suspicion is a lot will not watch it, but what, what are they saying? What have you heard?

    Megan Kelly reported last night that there is another company, company "B" selling baby body parts for thousands of dollars a piece while PPH, company "A" sells each part for maybe $40-$50 each. Here is how the scam works IMHO: PPH employees and executives are stock holders in company "B", company "A" sells the baby body parts to company a at a very low price, at cost. Then company "B" sells the baby body parts a a huge markup. The result is that company "A" appears to make no profits on the sale of these baby body parts and those...

    A zoo in Ohio has pressed charges against a man who jumped a fence to pet cougars - then posted video of it on YouTube. Joshua Newell had his camera rolling when he leaped over the outer fence of the big cat enclosure at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. The 35-year-old then began petting two adult cougars through a second fence as he said things like, "Kitty, kitty, kitty". The footage showed the animals appearing to enjoy the attention. Zoo officials called the video "alarming" and said it was fortunate that neither Newell nor the cougars were harmed. "Animal welfare...

    OK. I may be missing something here. But back in high school, when I took a course in Business Law, I learned that in order to be enforceable, a contract requires that there be consideration in exchange for value. So if you and I sign a document saying that you will paint my house on a particular date, and you don't show up, I can't sue you for breach of contract unless the document indicated that you were to receive some type of consideration in exchange for painting my house. So my question is: What consideration did Iran give the...

    TIME ^ | July 21, 2015 | By Jennifer Latson
    July 21, 1899: Ernest Hemingway is born in Oak Park, Ill. Hemingway didn’t become known as a “literary he-man” without taking a few risks — in art and in life. From his birth on this day, July 21, in 1899, to his death in 1961, he had nearly as many real-life brushes with death as he assigned to his similarly he-manly fictional characters. He’d been obsessed with death ever since he confronted it — and nearly succumbed to it — on an Italian battlefield during World War I, according to TIME. And although he ultimately died of a self-inflicted gunshot...

Manfred, appearing at a Baseball Writers Association of America luncheon at the All-Star Game in Cincinnati, said he's open-minded about the possibility of MLB expanding for the first time since the Arizona Diamondbacks and Tampa Bay Rays came on board in 1998. "Maybe one of the reasons I got this job is, I'm bullish on this game," Manfred said. "I think we are a growth business, broadly defined. And over an extended period of time, growth businesses...

    Law enforcement officials in Connecticut were called into a flea market over the weekend after someone called in to report a person selling Confederate and Nazi memorabilia. Despite the controversy surrounding the nature of the objects, nobody was arrested since no laws were technically broken, WTNH reported (video below). The items were being sold on private property, according to the chief of police. William Moore is the co-owner of Military Specialties Inc. in Newington, Connecticut, which sells authentic objects from Nazi-era Germany, Civil War-era United States, and reproductions. He told WTNH that such items can often be found in Connecticut.

For about forty years the Democrats have invited the gays into the Democrats' "Rainbow Coalition". The Democrats invited them into the party and gave them a seat at the decision making table. Gays became part of the Democrat coalition. Each group in the coalition gets what it wants and the Democrats have supported the gay agenda for decades. Back in the Clinton administration, Bill Clinton tried to get homosexuals in the military. He was not able to get everything that he wanted...

You may think you’re looking at a German shepherd, but Max is a Belgian Malinois, a member of the sheep-herding family to be sure. But this is a breed so strong, agile, smart and hard-working that it has become in many corners the “dog of choice” among the military as well as law enforcement. The movie is a work of fiction, but it is an...
