  • 'I got six kids to feed and you are going to get me fired': Angry father of 6 to protestors

    Daily Mail ^ | November 29, 2014 | Wills Robinson
    Father-of-six Tyree Landrum was driving to one of his three jobs when he came across a line of Ferguson protesters blocking the road in the middle of the San Diego rush hour. Furious that the demonstrators might make him late to work and risk him getting fired, he decided to get out of his car on the I-5 in La Jolla to confront the group of students. He then told a photographer for ABC News 10: 'If I don't get there, I'm going to get fired. I've got six f****** kids to feed.' Mr Landrum's reaction on Wednesday has since...
  • New groundwater laws to have ripple effect on agriculture (w/video)

    The Santa Rosa Press Democrat ^ | September 16, 2014 | Angela Hart
    Gov. Jerry Brown signed historic groundwater legislation Tuesday, imposing new rules in the Golden State that could limit how much water commercial and residential users are allowed to pump from underground aquifers — a move decades in the works, spurred this year by California’s drought. The new laws, which take effect in January, will require local government officials to ensure use of groundwater basins is sustainable, protecting underground reserves and averting other environmental damage. The regulations could have a ripple effect on thousands of farmers and ranchers across the North Coast.

    The US State Department on Tuesday commented on the murder of three Israeli teens, on the same day the funeral for the three was held in the attendance of hundreds and thousands of Israelis. State Department spokesperson Marie Harf struck a cautious tone over who was to blame for the kidnapping, asserting that "the investigation of the abduction and murder indicates the involvement of Hamas in the affair, but at this stage we have not determined that Hamas is responsible." The statement was reported by Yedioth Aharonoth's Washington correspondent Yitzhak Ben-Horin. Harf's ambivalent comment comes despite the IDF's announcement last...

    President Barack Obama slipped into Afghanistan for a surprise visit Sunday and made clear that the U.S. will likely maintain a limited role here even after its combat mission ends this year and America’s longest war comes to a close. “America’s commitment to the people of Afghanistan will endure,” he pledged. Speaking to troops gathered in an airplane hangar on this sprawling military base, Obama said the war had reached a pivotal point, with Afghan forces assuming primary responsibility for their country’s security. But while many of the 32,800 U.S. forces now in Afghanistan will leave in the coming months,...

    Following the surprise drop in the unemployment rate last Friday, I have seen many conspiracy charges leveled against the BLS. I do not believe any of the conspiracy charges. Had Obama instructed the BLS to juice the numbers, someone in the BLS would surely be yapping. They are not all Democrats. Many were hired under President Bush. Is Obamacare Responsible for Surge in Part-Time Jobs? Some stated the 582,000 surge in part-time workers was a seasonal thing based on teachers going back to work. I do not buy that explanation either because the surge in part-time workers and the decline...

    Maybe if Hillary wasn’t so busy doing God knows what she would have been paying attention to what was going on here, and maybe if Obama would’ve attended more than just 39% of his national security briefings he would’ve as well. Or maybe they both knew, and were SO negligent that they didn’t do anything. One or the other is the case here, because I’ve been on the ground in U.S. military/diplomatic installations in war zones, and intelligence is normally lapped up like mother’s milk as a matter of survival, and whenever threats start trending over a period of time,...

    (CNN) -- Sen. John McCain continued his blitz against the Obama administration Sunday, saying the president was responsible for the recent national security leaks--whether he knew about them or not. "It's obvious on its face that this information came from individuals who are in the administration," McCain said on CNN's "State of the Union." "The president may not have done it himself, but the president certainly is responsible as commander in chief." His comments came after the president himself forcefully dismissed the idea on Friday that the leaks came as a form of political strategy for the White House -...

    Yahoo ^ | 4/14/11 | Rachelle Younglai, Glenn Somerville - Reuters
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on Thursday told Republican lawmakers that they would shoulder the blame if the country got too close to defaulting on its debt and roiled markets worldwide by not approving a debt limit increase. In yet another warning about the perils of not allowing the U.S. to borrow more to fund already spending already approved by Congress, Geithner said it would be deeply irresponsible for lawmakers to use debt limit negotiations for political gains. Congress must agree to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling or the legal amount that the country can borrow. But...

    A noted psychologist told a gathering of teachers, school officials and parents that the reason why black males are struggling to graduate high school has very little to do with the failures of teachers. It has much more to do with the failures of modern society, he said. "I'm unwilling to stand up here and pretend that you are somehow responsible for their failures," Na'im Akbar told teachers Tuesday at a symposium on graduation rates at Atlantic Community High School. The symposium was the second meeting of a task force started by the school district to generate ideas to improve...

    One could conclude - based on rhetoric alone - that George Bush never left office, and Obama never actually ascended to the presidency. After all, according to the Obama narrative, only one man is responsible for anything these days. And that man is George Bush. Obama isn't "responsible." He's completely irresponsible. Obama has never once taken the "The Buck Stops With George Bush" sign off of his desk. Since we all know that the buck stops at the highest political office, and since we all know that Obama keeps passing the buck off to George Bush, we can therefore know...

    Two Guantanamo terrorists released in November were behind the Christmas Day attack in Detroit. Our security agencies ignored their own security measures and their own intelligence — including warnings from the terrorist’s father that his son was involved with terrorists. The chief of our Department of Homeland Security is preoccupied with covering her ass, and conferring citizenship rights on enemy combatants. Instead of throwing the enemy in the darkest possible dungeon and extracting information on the next terrorist attack, both she and her president are referring to him as an “alleged” bomber and helping him to lawyer up because after...

"We offer our condolences and prayers to the families that have a person who died," said Imam Mohammed Abdullahi over loud-speakers that carried the weekly Muslim prayer to several hundred worshippers gathered at the mosque. "Islam is not responsible," he stressed. Many of the worshippers who had come to the mosque in this suburb of Washington knew...

    In January, the US saw nearly 598,000 jobs go by the wayside, the most losses in a single month since 1974. That follows the 577,000 jobs that were lost in December. The "conventional wisdom" blathered by the blatantly dishonest and foolish mainstream media is that these losses are the result of the economic downturn that hit the economy under George Bush. But while there is certainly an element of partial truth to this view, it is by no means THE truth. And the mainstream media most certainly don't want you to know the rest of the story. As a result...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has tapped Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a loyal liberal from Northern California, as chairwoman of the House ethics committee. Pelosi announced Lofgren’s selection early Tuesday evening after a busy Inauguration Day. In a release, she said she would recommend Lofgren to the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee and House Democratic Caucus. The choice is something of a surprise, because Lofgren has already served more than the required three terms on the ethics panel, officially called the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct. Second stints on the ethics panel are rare, with most lawmakers trying to avoid...

    SENATOR Edward Kennedy has been the godfather of America's immigration policy since the mid 1960s. No other figure in American politics bears as much responsibility as he for the current pathetic state of U.S. immigration affairs. As chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration, Senator Kennedy has had chief oversight responsibility for the Immigration and Naturalization Service, which he has allowed to degenerate into one of the most ineffective agencies in the Federal Government. He was the chief sponsor of the Immigration Amendments of 1965 and the Refugee Act of 1980, and a major proponent of the fraud-ridden 1986 immigration...

    Defense attorneys are responsible for leaking confidential FBI summaries to the media in a Hollywood wiretapping case, federal prosecutors argued in court documents. Prosecutors said articles citing FBI interviews with Hollywood power brokers didn't start showing up in the New York Times until after information had been turned over to defense attorneys as part of the pretrial discovery process. Because a protective order may have been violated, the U.S. Justice Department has launched an investigation to determine who leaked the details. "The protective order was materially breached when at least one of the members of the defense team provided material...

    JERUSALEM - Israel said Tuesday that it holds the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority responsible for the deadliest suicide bombing in nearly two years and debated whether to target it directly as an "enemy entity" — even though the attack was carried out by a different militant group. Monday's blast outside a packed Tel Aviv fast-food restaurant killed nine civilians and wounded dozens during the Jewish Passover holiday, and troop reinforcements were deployed across Israel for fear of more attacks. The 21-year-old bomber, a West Bank university dropout, was sent by the Iranian-backed Islamic Jihad group. Israel's U.N. ambassador, Dan Gillerman, warned...

    A new law that penalizes anyone caught hosting an underage-drinking party has nabbed dozens of young partiers, but comparatively few parents, a New Hampshire Union Leader analysis reveals. Court records show the vast majority of people arrested under the state’s “house party” law were in their teens or 20s. In 44 cases reviewed for this story, roughly three quarters of people charged were below the legal drinking age at the time of their arrest. Within that same group, just four — including a husband and wife who were charged together — were over the age of 30.

Putting lipstick on a pig is not going to help the nation's children of broken families, no matter how many times the so-called "family values" community of elected officials claim as much in an on-camera sound bite. The National Fatherhood Initiative is a scam set up to appease the national arena of social conservatives who have recognized the dangerous descent of the American family into the abyss of history.

The anti-milk piece -- written by activists from the PETA-affiliated Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) -- concluded that feeding milk to children is unnecessary, and that there are better ways (kale, tofu, turnip greens, or spinach, for instance) for kids to get the calcium they need.

Dorcas R. Hardy believes that Social Security will become insolvent by as early as 2018, and if this former S. S. Commissioner is...
