    Donald Levine, the Hasbro executive credited as the father of G.I. Joe for developing the world's first action figure, has died. He was 86. He died of cancer early Thursday at Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island, said his wife, Nan. They were just about to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. Levine shepherded the toy through design and development as Hasbro's head of research and development. He and his team came up with an 11½-inch articulated figure with 21 moving parts, and since the company's employees included many military veterans, it was decided to outfit the toy in the...

  • Assembly Democrat wants grocery store ban on plastic bags [California]

    Sacramento Bee ^ | Tuesday, January 22, 2013 | Kevin Yamamura
    Assemblyman Marc Levine announced today he will revive a proposal banning all single-use plastic bags in California grocery stores. Under the proposal, most grocery retailers could no longer provide thin plastic bags for customers starting in 2015. For 18 months, retailers could offer paper bags made of recycled materials or reusable plastic bags for customers to bag their milk, eggs and other groceries. Starting in July 2016, grocery retailers could only provide reusable plastic bags, which many stores already offer at a fee. The new proposal, Assembly Bill 158, also leaves room for stores to provide recycled paper bags at...

    Reggie’s the best athlete I know - Obama The rumors of Obama’s gayness abound, but the press is muzzled by the CFR like a trained lapdog. The Globe however ran an article recently about Donald Young, one of Obama’s alleged “gay lovers”, who was found murdered in Chicago. He was a gay choir director at the now infamous Trinity Church and reputedly a friend of Obama’s. Young’s mother thinks he was killed to protect Obama’s secret gay life during the campaign. This was reported by Larry Sinclair during the campaign. The media choose to bury the story. An article ran...

    Why was Obama promoting Capri Capital and other investment firms at the same time that Rezko, Levine and Cellini were shaking them down?” “Why did Patrick Fitzgerald and the US Justice Department wait until December 2008 to arrest Rod Blagojevich?” “Why was Tony Rezko’s sentencing delayed?” Do not be fooled by the investigation of Jesse Jackson Jr. in the so called selling of Obama’s senate seat. This was a well crafted diversion intended to take the attention away from Obama’s earlier involvement in Chicago corruption with Tony Rezko, Stuart Levine, et al. The investigation of Jackson is another diversion. I...

    In a video that quickly circulated around the internet, a CBS affiliate correspondent in Chicago can be shouting down a WIND radio talk show host as he tried to ask hard-hitting questions of former White House chief of staff and current mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel. Now, Chicago Police say that CBS2′s Jay Levine must be held responsible for threatening the radio host with physical assault and have reportedly issued a warrant for his arrest.

    Mark Levine is on Fox with Megan Kelly. While discussing Obama's sinking approval numbers he took the following unprovoked cheap shot at Rush, I'm paraphrasing: Rush is probably celebrating, drinking champagne or taking Oxycontin or whatever he does.

    *snip* I have a background in using the internet and researching, and I was so concerned within the first several weeks, it affected my sleep. And I’m talking about the whole big picture about Obama, his background, Chicago corruption, and right on down the line. And then very quickly, when I started asking questions on the internet, I got attacked for it. And I’m talking about something very benign such as “Where was Obama in November of 1999?” and I was amazed. Then I started following the Larry Sinclair story, and I quickly realized, “Wait a minute. This is not...

    Federal prosecutors have filed a key document laying out their corruption case against former Gov. Rod Blagojevich out of the public eye — at least for now. Such a filing is typically made part of the public record in the weeks before the start of a trial. Jury selection is set to begin June 3 for Blagojevich and his brother, Robert. But in a brief public filing to explain their actions, prosecutors said they have filed the new document under seal so U.S. District Judge James Zagel and the defense can first decide if any portions should stay under wraps....

    The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, better known as NASA, said in July that it had found the "smoking gun" that caused the space shuttle Columbia to break apart as it re-entered the Earth's atmosphere on Feb. 1: a piece of foam that had peeled off the external fuel tank and struck the shuttle's wing 1 minute and 22 seconds after liftoff. But many experts looking at the tragedy that killed seven astronauts say there is a deeper cause. They say that the metaphorical smoking gun should be painted green. Because of demands that the agency help to front for...

    Ignorance is Strength in Shift to Green Power "Ignorance is strength" - slogan in novel 1984 by George Orwell Van Nuys State Assemblyman Lloyd Levine (D) is reported to want to raise the bar on the percentage of green power that California cities and public utilities must purchase from 20% to 33% http://californiachronicle.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?articleID=18751 However, it is well-documented that cities are not prepared to make even the lower requirement by 2010 (see here: http://calenergy.blogspot.com/2006/09/california-is-all-talk-on-green-energy_25.html). Levine wants 33% "renewable" energy by 2020. His Assembly Bill 94 would additionally apply to power supplies for PG&E, Southern California Edison, and San Diego Gas and...

    The publication of Hubris is filled with irony for David Corn, Washington editor of the left-wing Nation magazine. He was present at the creation of the Valerie Plame "scandal," which the enemies of George W. Bush hoped could bring down a president. Nobody was more responsible for bloating this episode. Yet Corn is coauthor of a book that has had the effect of killing the story. Thanks to Corn's intrepid coauthor, Newsweek investigative reporter Michael Isikoff, Hubris definitively revealed then-Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage as my source that Joseph Wilson's wife, Valerie, worked for the CIA and suggested her...

    Free Republic: Art Appreciation/Education “class” #10: Postmodernism Now it is time to truly finish these mini-lectures on the development of modern art with this final lecture of Postmodernism. Andy Warhol and other Pop artists may have made the first forays into Postmodernism, and some textbooks begin their postmodern sections with Pop Art. But I like to save Postmodernism for the 1980’s and thereafter. One question to consider is whether postmodernism (or at least its validity) might have come to a screeching halt on 9/11, (when thinking people realized that there were indeed evil people in the world and that the...

    A politically connected businessman has been indicted for a second time on federal fraud charges. Stuart Levine is linked to a scam involving the Illinois Teachers Pension Fund along with one of the Democratic party's biggest fund raisers, Joseph Cari. The message from the feds Wednesday is crystal clear: Chicago City Hall is only one of the fronts in the war on government corruption. It also appears to be rampant at the boards and commissions that oversee billions of dollars in state of Illinois programs. One of the alleged scammers is multi-millionaire businessman Stuart Levine. Another is Joe Cari, one...

    'Parlor Maid' tarnishes FBI Details of Leung-Smith spy case throw bureau's handling of investigation into question Details of Leung-Smith spy case throw bureau's handling By Ian Hoffman, STAFF WRITER Twelve years ago, a team of U.S. counterintelligence operatives flew into frigid southern Manchuria to assess Chinese spying on American diplomats. Instead, the U.S. agents came to believe their own team was tracked by China's Ministry of State Security every step of their mission, which is still classified today. The first clue was an odd elevator encounter in remote northeast China, an FBI agent bumping into a California nuclear-weapons scientist suspected...

They spoke at a news conference dominated by the weapons question, as well as efforts to locate the ousted Iraqi dictator, and the issue of continuing attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq. Republican Senator Pat Roberts, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, says there is new information in the hands of U.S. intelligence agencies and the Bush administration regarding...

    Levine comment line: (612) 627-1977 We appreciate and respect your concern. The University of Minnesota Press in no way condones child sexual abuse, nor does Judith Levine, the author of "Harmful to Minors," believe sexual abuse is ever justifiable. We are glad to have this opportunity to clear up some misperceptions about the book, which has not yet even been published. Some of the talk radio and on-line coverage that the University has been made aware of clearly take the author's arguments out of context. The book does not endorse pedophilia or any type of sexual abuse of children. It...
