    Independent Sentinel ^ | October 12, 2015 | S. Noble
    Governor Jerry Brown just sold out the American vote in California. He signed a new version of the Motor Voter Act that will register every eligible California citizen who acquires a driver’s license or renews a license at the Department of Motor Vehicles to vote. This is after he made all illegal aliens eligible for diver’s licenses. Eleven states allow illegal aliens to get driver’s licenses. In California, state officials “specifically chose not to make noncitizen license holders searchable in their DMV database,” said True the Vote spokesman Logan Churchwell, who called the newly signed bill “unprecedented.” The measure, Assembly...

Dozens tweeted the accounts of the local Connecticut Dunkin' Donuts franchise group and the national Dunkin' Donuts headquarters, many users calling for a boycott of the company and for the employee, who police said told the officer, "We don't serve cops here," to be fired. Both accounts answered with the same response: "We are aware, Dunkin' Donuts & our franchisees...

He started shooting in a classroom. Although multiple media outlets have identified the shooter as Chris Harper Mercer, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin refused to speak his name, saying publicizing his identity would "only glorify his horrific actions", and possibly "inspire future shooters". "I know that conversation around firearms will occur and needs to occur, but now is not the time", he said. The three...

    REEDSPORT — The Reedsport School District again is able to provide free meals to every student for the 2015-2016 school year, a program that began last year. A controversy in the North Bend School District, with which Reedsport cooperates to get bulk pricing on food items, should not affect that program. “We're a school-wide free-lunch program,” said first-year Superintendent Brian Gander. “That's based on our local incidence of poverty. We started that last year.” Gander said the district would have 65 percent of students eligible for free and reduced lunch, if that program were still in effect. The current program...

She and her husband were attacked together in February. Bonya lost fingers and was scarred, but lived. Her husband was hacked to death with machetes in a manner that followed the same gruesome pattern of later killings. They had...

The multinational technology firm expressed their support for Ahmed, not through kind words, but by sending the young engineer a huge hamper of tech goodies, including a Cube 3D printer.

    Monday, September 14, 2015 Government workers outnumber manufacturing workers in Illinois By Michael Lucci / Illinois Policy Institute - The top-producing states of the Midwest’s manufacturing powerhouse are Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. But Illinois is the only one of the Great Lakes states where government workers dramatically outnumber manufacturing workers, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As of June 2015, Illinois had only 574,000 factory workers, compared with nearly 750,000 state and local government workers. That means Illinois had only 3 manufacturing workers for every 4 state and local government workers.

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | August 26, 2015 | Thomas Rose
    Breitbart News has exclusively obtained an email sent by the President and Publisher of the Indianapolis Star. It invites “community leaders” to help plan and coordinate an aggressive, highly orchestrated campaign to “persuade” the Indiana state legislature to adopt sweeping special protections for Indiana’s gay, lesbian and transgender communities. The email, sent personally by Karen Ferguson Fuson, President and Publisher of the Star, was sent early this morning to an undisclosed list of business and media elites, together with gay rights activists. It pulls no punches in its scope or its goals. The email, in its unedited entirety reads as...

    A disarm, 3 a.m. call for help, gunshots, butt strokes, and hand to hand, but two neighbors rescued a 69 year old woman from a home invasion in rural Alabama.  The Sheriff deputies arrived in time to clean up the mess. At about 3 a.m., an unfamiliar man broke into Wilma Williams home in the 31000 block of Cleburne County Road 49 in Alabama.  She ran to her pistol, but Craig Moore was able to take it from her and fire twice before she struggled free. One of the shots cut hair from her head. She got away and...

    Here’s a fun one for all of our beloved gun owners out there. Boston just reinstated its “Your Piece for Peace” gun buyback program this past Wednesday, despite the fact that the tally this year has amounted to—wait for it—one single firearm. That’s a massive undercut from 2014’s intake of 410 guns. “There’s no question why the total number is down: The gun buyback’s numbers clearly aren’t on the same level as the guns taken a year ago,” police spokesman Officer James Kenneally said. According to him, though, the program's lack of success isn’t enough to shut it down: “As...

  • Gov’t to creamery: Your milk is entirely too natural to not be labeled “imitation”

    Hot Air ^ | August 20, 2015 | Mary Katherine Ham
    Sometimes government’s dishonesty, incompetence, wastefulness, and misguided nannyism combine to make a perfectly ridiculous story. Today’s comes to us from Florida, where the Ocheesee Creamery is being forced to dump gallons upon gallons of good, natural skim milk because the state is requiring the business to label its good, natural skim milk “imitation” because they haven’t added anything to it. Paul and Mary Lou Wesselhoeft have been fighting this in federal court with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs, which had formerly allowed them to sell their skim milk while calling it skim milk. No one seemed confused...

    How Systems Get Tired by Richard Fernandez August 19, 2015 - 2:42 am One of the arguments for the impossibility of an event is lack of previous failure. “It never failed before and thus can never fail ever”. The Washington Post’s editorial board invokes a variant of this logic to refute Donald Trump’s border policy, arguing there are so many illegal immigrants it is too expensive to deport them all, leaving no alternative but to accept more. Besides, America is still standing so what can be the harm in admitting more? The same argument is used to justify other policies....

    The old musket pictured above was retrieved from Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin two years ago.  It appears to be a "trade musket" that was manufactured about 200 years ago.   From “It was around 11 a.m. on Sept. 4 and as soon as I saw the barrel I knew what it was,” he said. There — hooked on the end of his anchor — was a flintlock musket, rusted and weathered by the passage of time. “This is crazy. It’s like one of those tall fish tales,” he thought as he held the ancient musket in hand and turned...

    The Orange County Public Administrator’s Office has dealt with its share of unusual inheritances. There was the protection they once had to arrange for a $500,000 ring. And there was the pet eel. But even for the agency that takes care of a decedent’s assets when no one else can act on that person’s behalf, the upcoming estate sale of Gerald Willits, a Buena Park man who died in August 2014 and left 69 cars in his yard, is “very unusual,” according to Elizabeth Henderson, chief deputy public administrator for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

    Iowa and New Hampshire are two states when it comes to politics that are to some degree are jaded to the star power of candidates. These are the states that have presidential candidates visiting in barber shops when you walk in for a haircut. These are the states where you are going to lunch at 12:00 (when the town horn sounds) with your parts manager from the John Deere dealership only to find a governor talking to a group in the back room of the local pizza restaurant. I had seen the reaction to Donald Trump when he came to...
