    New York Daily News, ^ | 9/8/14 | Frank Green and Joseph Stepansky
    Two women were arrested after they robbed and then intimidated three tenants out of their Brooklyn apartment — and the crime was partly motivated by race and class resentment, law enforcement sources said. Precious Parker, 30, and Sabrina James, 23, knocked on the door of an apartment building on Ocean Ave. near Newkirk Ave. in Flatbush at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday and held a 34-year-old man, a 37-year-old man, and a 25-year-old woman at gunpoint demanding they move out or be killed, police said. The women then stole $800, an iPhone and personal information
  • Greedy Politicians Get their Comeuppance as Taxpayers Escape

    Townhall.com ^ | May 4, 2014 | Daniel J. Mitchell
    If you’re a regular reader, you already know I’m a big supporter of tax competition and tax havens. Here’s the premise: Politicians almost always are focused on their next election and this encourages them to pursue policies that are designed to maximize votes and power within that short time horizon. Unfortunately, this often results in very short-sighted and misguided fiscal policies that burden the economy, such as class-warfare tax policy and counterproductive government spending. So we need some sort of countervailing force that will make such policies less attractive to the political class. We don’t have anything that inhibits wasteful...

It was not clear if the missile was mounted with a warhead or whether the North was planning to fire it or was just putting it on display as a show of force, one South Korean government source was quoted as saying.

    United Van Lines released its annual accounting of where American households are moving and Michigan ranked as the 6th highest state in outbound traffic in 2012. That is a modest improvement over 2011, when the Great Lake State was ranked 4th. Specifically, 58 percent of all United Van Lines 2012 Michigan-related moves are outbound. The good news is that this isn't the most recent improvement in the state's ranking. From 2006 through 2009, Michigan ranked as the company's No. 1 state for outbound moving traffic. Also, by making this state a more attractive place for investors and entrepreneurs to locate...

    In an attempt to lower crime and raise government revenue, Uruguay is planning on legalizing marijuana. Currently, it is legal to possess less than 25 grams of cannabis, but it is illegal to grow or sell it. If the proposal passes, Uruguay’s government would oversee the growth and distribution of the $75 million business. Buyers would be required to register with the government. “It’s a fight on both fronts: against consumption and drug trafficking,” said defense minister Eleuterio Fernandez Huidobro. “We think the prohibition of certain drugs is creating more problems for society than the drugs themselves.” Congress must approve...

    Researchers recently uncovered a startling phenomenon — a set of teardrop-shaped lakes in Antarctica that mysteriously move, jogging along at a pace as fast as 5 feet (1.5 meters) per day. The lakes sit atop the George VI ice shelf — a massive floating plain of ice larger than Vermont, composed of the mingled fronts of glaciers that flow off the edge of the continent and rest on the ocean. Glaciologist Doug MacAyeal at the University of Chicago, and student researcher C.H. LaBarbera, noticed the traveling bodies of water while studying satellite images of 11 ice shelf lakes captured between...

    cbssportsline.com ^ | 6-11-11 | By Evan Brunell
    As Major League Baseball continues to discuss possible realignment, one idea that has come up is going to a league with 15 teams per league, reports ESPN's Buster Olney. Currently, the National League has 16 teams and the AL 14 for scheduling purposes. Should baseball go to two 15-team leagues, that would likely require interleague play every day of the season. Given baseball likes to treat interleague play as an event, that could dilute the appeal of interleague play to the point it would no longer be a moneymaker. However, there is still real resistance to the idea which has...

    After the State Supreme Court here stunned the nation by making this the first state in the heartland to allow same-sex marriage, Iowa braced for its sleepy judicial elections to turn into referendums on gay marriage. The three Supreme Court justices on the ballot this year are indeed the targets of a well-financed campaign to oust them. But the effort has less to do with undoing same-sex marriage — which will remain even if the judges do not — than sending a broader message far beyond this state’s borders: voters can remove judges whose opinions they dislike. Around the country,...

Opening his conference on health-care, Obama complained that the soaring cost "now causes a bankruptcy in America every 30 seconds." He was speaking Thursday to over a hundred experts and policymakers invited to the White House, including some who opposed the Clinton administration's health-care overhaul. Obama told the White House Forum on Health Reform: "We have tried and fallen short, stalled time and again by failures of will, or Washington politics, or industry lobbying." He said...

And, not surprisingly, say analysts, the trend accelerated during the last three years, with homes never more out of reach of the typical area family. The total number of fleeing San Diego County residents reached a peak of 42,034 last year, eighth highest among all U.S. counties, according to new Census Bureau statistics.

    I am moving in the relatively near future and I'd like some helpful insight. I am tired of living with sheeple in suburbia, and merely existing from day to day, not following my dreams. So, I intend to try to do something about it. I want to build a great place for me, my daughter and close loved ones, Kinda like Walton's mountain. Yes I am a romantic idealist....so sue me. It may not happen, but that's what I'm shooting for. If you don't have a target, you'll never hit it, right? Work shouldn't be a problem (I am in...

    WASHINGTON, July 19, 2006 – The idea of the services operating jointly with fewer aircraft platforms that share common features is the key to the modernization effort taking place throughout the military aviation community, the Army Aviation director said here yesterday. Army Brig. Gen. Stephen D. Mundt called the trend toward jointness a key driver in aviation modernization programs. "It's critical we work together. It's a joint world," he said. "There is no way that this nation can afford for everybody to have their own specific capabilities and be redundant across the board." But Mundt told Pentagon reporters he's concerned...

    I'm thinking of the Carolina mountains as my next place to live. Would you consider Asheville, with its art deco feel as the place to live or would you go for Greenville with its more settled ambience? I've lived in California on the coast all my life and I'd like to try something different. Low cost of living, affordable housing, a safe place to live and having that view outside the window without the price tag. I know Colorado is expensive because every one goes there but no one seems to know the Blue Ridge Mountains are just as stunning....

    Freepers I need your help. We're very seriously thinking of moving out of Southern California. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1636409/posts We've read the books "50 Fabulous Places to Raise Your Family" and the comprehensive "Cities Ranked and Rated". We've used the websites www.bestplaces.net and www.findyourspot.com. We've received the travel guides from over 40 states we're thinking of travelling or moving to. But I think the people of FreeRepulic might be the best resource of all for recommending places to raise a homeschooling family in the US. Many of the people here travel quite a bit and have noticed trends that affect families. So if...

    HIT, Iraq, June 4, 2006 – The infantry isn't going to move far without help from a bunch of oil-stained soldiers.
