Powerhouse Las Vegas law firm
joins lawsuit against Nevada’s
Silver State Exchange
Las Vegas Sun [Henderson, NV], by Kyle Roerink    Original Article
Posted By: lvmatt- 7/12/2014 10:40:29 AM     Post Reply
Two prominent Las Vegas attorneys signed onto a class-action lawsuit to represent plaintiffs suing the state and software builder Xerox for negligence with the Nevada´s health care exchange. (Snip) The suit claims that Nevada and Xerox knew there would be payment problems with the Silver State Exchange's online software and accepted consumers’ money without warning them of the risks. Xerox told the Las Vegas Sun in June that it was “not at liberty” to disclose how many consumers paid premiums without receiving a plan. Exchange officials said they do not know the number.

No Wendy Davis at Obama´s

President Obama came to Texas but Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis did not show up: "Davis didn’t appear with the president during his two-day visit to Texas, careful not to appear too aligned with Obama or his policies while trying to win in a state that hasn’t elected a Democratic governor since 1990 and where disapproval of Obama is high." She went further and criticized President Obama: ""Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor, stopped short of criticizing Obama but expressed hope he would make time for a border visit. “It’s one thing to hear the number. It’s another thing to see for yourself the

United Auto Workers:
Chattanooga´s Creepy Stalker

Have you ever gone on a couple dates with someone, but then decided it just wasn’t going work out? It’s a tough spot to be in, especially when you know they are totally into you and you have to be the one to call it off. Chattanooga was in that position in February of this year with the United Auto Workers (UAW). Ever since Volkswagen opened its American manufacturing headquarters in Chattanooga in 2011, the UAW has been the city’s heavy-breathing suitor. Give them this: the union has been very persistent. Caving to their determination, Volkswagen finally agreed to go on

Solar panel company pocketing govt
subsidy cash intended for homeowners
Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/12/2014 10:22:39 AM     Post Reply
The US government has been pushing the idea of home solar panels for quite a while now, giving the industry a significant, additional nudge when the current federal subsidy program was generously expanded in 2008. The idea behind this was that if homeowners wanted to save some money on their energy bill by using solar power, they could receive a 30% subsidy to help cover the costs. Sounds pretty sweet, eh? Well, when the government is giving away taxpayer cash, plenty of people will line up to get it… and it’s not always those who were intended to benefit. This

Singapore backs call to destroy

SINGAPORE — A children´s book inspired by a real-life story of two male penguins raising a baby chick in New York´s zoo has been deemed inappropriate by state-run Singapore libraries, and the conservative city-state´s information minister said he supports the decision to destroy all copies alongside two other titles. The National Library Board, which runs 26 public libraries in Singapore, pulled from the shelves and said it would "pulp" the copies of three titles, citing complaints their content goes against Singapore´s family values. The books are "And Tango Makes Three," about a male-male penguin couple in the Central Park Zoo;

Some Good People Might Be Thrown

As I read this New York Times story – ‘Fertility Clinics Scan for the Strongest Embryo — about chromosomal testing of in-vitro fertilization embryos, I kept waiting for the counterpoint to the idea that scientists could help create a purer race. Finally, the opposition arose: Still, critics say, if the test is at all inaccurate, some good people might be thrown out or defective ones chosen. I’m sorry, the actual sentence said “good embryos might be thrown out.” I don’t know how I made that mistake. In any case, embryos get “thrown out” whether the test is administered or not.

Tommy Ramone, drummer and last surviving original member of the punk-rock band Ramones, died Friday, confirmed to the Los Angeles Times by the band´s manager with Silent Partner Management. He was 65, the manager confirmed. Born Thomas Erdelyi in Budapest, Hungary, on Jan. 29, 1949, Ramone was the drummer for the band from 1974 to 1978, as well as co-producing the band´s first three albums. The Ramones, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002 -- had to wait until most of their membership had died to be hailed by mainstream pop culture as a pioneering force.

Iowa's Joni Ernst gives the Republican Party's Weekly Remarks.
Hello, this is Joni Ernst. I’m a mother and grandmother, a soldier and proud to be Iowa’s Republican nominee for U.S. Senate. I get asked all the time what made me want to join the military. And the answer is simple. When I was attending college, I went on an agricultural exchange to the Soviet Union. I saw what a nation without freedom looks like. I saw what happens to people when they lose their liberty. When I came home, I decided that it wasn’t enough for me to simply enjoy freedom and liberty. I had to do my part

At least two men have been killed and 18 other people wounded in shootings in Chicago Friday night into Saturday morning. In the Austin neighborhood about 7:13 p.m., a 32-year-old man was shot and pronounced dead on the scene in a possible drive-by shooting in the 5200 block of West Quincy Street, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala. A man whose age was not yet available was shot in the right arm, but refused medical treatment and refused to cooperate with police. Later, a 30-year-old woman who had been shot multiple times in the same attack showed

Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that the troubles dogging President Obama and his inability to handle them have prompted even his most ardent supporters to give up. "Now some people have really bad weeks. Brazil´s President Dilma Rousseff got an ´F´ after the nation´s soccer team lost to Germany. And Nate Silver´s prediction of a Brazil victory at the World Cup turned to sulfuric acid. “But President Obama´s week was just as bad. Israel and the Palestinians are at war again.

Whenever he talks about himself, immediately flip it around so he’s saying the opposite. Think about it. “I’m not interested in photo-ops.” Boom.

President Obama's weekly remarks
Hi, everybody. This week, I spent some time in Colorado and Texas, talking with people about what’s going on in their lives. One was Elizabeth Cooper, a college junior this fall. She wrote to tell me something I hear often: how hard it is for middle-class families like hers to afford college. And she shared something I know many of you feel when you wonder what’s going on in Washington. She said she feels “not significant enough to be addressed, not poor enough for people to worry [about], and not rich enough to be cared about.” I ran for President to fight for Americans just like Elizabeth — people who work hard, do everything right,

No, superstar movie director Steven Spielberg did not poach a dinosaur and then have a picture taken showing him with his trophy kill. Hard to believe, right? Well, a photo posted on Facebook meant to be satire went viral -- being shared more than 30,000 times, because so many people not only believed it was real but also were furious at the "Jurassic Park" director. The post by Jay Branscomb on his page happened days after Facebook deleted photos from the page of Kendall Jones, a 19-year-old Texas cheerleader and hunter who posted numerous photos of herself posing with a

It’s true what they say about Michelle Obama. She has amazing arms. I saw this up close when she unfurled her bare right limb in front of me Thursday night, while the two of us were doing tapas at the jumping Barcelona on 14th Street NW. Clearly the first lady works out, clearly she moisturizes and clearly L’Oréal should hire her as its pitchwoman after she leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. “Ma’am, you rock,” I wanted to tell her, even though I was seated a table away from her party of eight, which included White House chef Sam Kass, and was

U.S. authorities have charged a Chinese businessman with hacking into the computer systems of U.S. companies with large defense contracts, including Boeing, to steal data on military projects, including some of the latest fighter jets, officials said Friday. Suspect Su Bin worked in cahoots with two unnamed Chinese hackers to get the data between 2009 and 2013, and Su attempted to sell some of the information to state-owned Chinese companies, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles that was unsealed Thursday. The men targeted fighter jets such as the F-22 and the F-35 as well as Boeing’s C-17 military cargo

In a July 10 piece, Reuters writer Steve Holland thought he saw Obama "dropping" his usual "political decorum" by directly attacking Republicans this month. However, since the day he entered the White House, this President has made a career of sharp jabs, name calling, and political mudslinging. "President Barack Obama may look back on this week," Holland insisted, "as the time when he dropped all pretense of political decorum and let all his frustrations with Washington gridlock spill forth." Saying that Obama´s "tone was significantly sharper" during his visit to Austin, Texas this week, (Snip) One wonders where Reuters has

GOP Keeps House Edge

Raleigh, NC - Democrats have long claimed that Republicans abused their legislative powers to elect a disproportionate number of U.S. House members. Now a Florida court is lending credence to their complaint. The full impact of the Florida ruling — plus a similar lawsuit pending in North Carolina — won’t be known for some while. For now, at least, they shine light on the fiercely partisan practice of gerrymandering, in which state officials draw congressional districts to help their party. Republicans and Democrats have engaged in gerrymandering for decades. Republicans refined the practice in 2011,

Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who is in the process of pursuing a legal challenge to his loss in the June 24 U.S. Senate Republican primary runoff, said Friday his campaign has found more "questionable votes" than the runoff´s margin of victory. In a statement released by his campaign, McDaniel said an examination of voting rolls in Mississippi found 8,300 "questionable votes." He didn´t release specific evidence or a county-by-county breakdown, as has the campaign of his challenger, U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran. The statement did not make clear what McDaniel meant by "questionable votes."

The Israeli military said on Saturday that overnight it had struck a mosque in central Gaza that held a concealed weapons cache. The move was likely to fan Palestinian outrage during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. In Gaza, health officials said that the death toll from the Israeli airstrikes had reached 120, with hundreds more wounded. Many of those killed and wounded were said to be civilians, including women and children. Israel’s military said that over five days of fighting it had struck more than 1,160 targets in Gaza, including rocket launchers, weapon manufacturing and storage facilities and private

Central American children are pawns in the Democratic Party’s pursuit of political advantage through an open Southern border. Gilberto Ramos is just one of their most recent victims. The Guardian recently told Gilberto’s story: “Gilberto Ramos wanted to leave his chilly mountain village for the United States to earn money to treat his mother´s epilepsy. His mother begged him not to go. "The better treatment would have been if he stayed," Cipriana Juarez Diaz said in a tearful interview with the Associated Press on Tuesday. When he wouldn´t relent, she draped him with a white rosary for safe passage.

Glenn Beck has set up Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund to help illegals coming into the United States. He’s already raised $600,000. Beck stated that Obama would not have to step in and ask for $3.7 billion if private charities would pick up the slack and give to the swarm of illegals crossing the border. Is he kidding? Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care? It’s the working class and middle class who will take the hit.

I can remember several times when Obama just started to laugh in public at various disasters triggered by his policies. Happy laughter now seems to be the official White House reaction to domestic and international chaos and human suffering. You could call it leading with Obama’s big strength -- a great smile on TV -- while avoiding the worst of his weaknesses -- his inability to actually solve anything. About a year ago when painfully high black unemployment figures were mentioned, especially among young black men, Obama gave a happy smile in response. Then when “NATO” (i.e., the U.S.) started to bomb and overthrow the stabilizing regime

While President Barack Obama’s job approval rating was highest, by religion, among Muslims, other non-Christians, Jews (by faith), and atheists, his highest job disapproval ratings were among Christians -- Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, and other Christians. In the survey, conducted January-June 2014, Gallup asked about Obama’s job approval and disapproval, by religion. While 72% of Muslims and 54% of atheists expressed approval, only 44% of Catholics did, and only 37% of Protestant/Other Christian and 18% of Mormon/Latter-day Saints.
