Viral Internet video and photographs of right-to-work protesters tearing down a tent and trashing a Lansing hot dog vendor´s catering equipment has sparked an online fundraising drive to help a man known by most as "the hot dog guy." During Tuesday´s mass demonstrations that attracted an estimated 10,000 to the Capitol lawn, protesters of the right-to-work law the Legislature was passing and voting on tore down a tent rented by the Michigan chapter of Americans for Prosperity. Witnesses and Internet videos show protesters, some wearing union clothes, using knives or box cutters to cut the tent´s ropes.
Comments: And the Leftists accuse conservatives of being racist?!
If unions want to know why they´re so hated, they should look at themselves. Their greed and thuggery has made them irrelevant to the modern world. They act just like the jihadists. Any day now, I expect them to start murdering people to get their own greedy way.
Here´s the thing. Obama,thelft and media think they have won the national argument and have a mandate to shove far left ideology down our throats.
The left really can´t envision a peaceful co existence with conservatives,no more than Hamas can see one with Israel.Their last resort is violence and that´s why Egypt needs a close eye the next few days. Will the Morsi government use force to impose his way. Big Islam and Big Left bullying are in full swing with Obama watching in glee.Community organizing is the only thing Obama´s good at and it´s concept is spreading worldwide with the use of technology.The Syrian rebels are getting their marching orders from western liberals.Just like the outsider mobs that got rid of Mubarak and Gadaffi.These were both fairly modern north African countries who had some basis of an economy.
Gadaffi was on the UN´s human rights commission one day and pulverized the next.
The Connecticut doctor whose wife and two daughters were killed in a 2007 home invasion has a new infant son. The baby was born over the weekend to Dr. William Petit (PEHT´-it) and his wife Christine. The former Christine Paluf met Petit while volunteering for the Petit Family Foundation. William Petit created the charity in memory of his wife Jennifer Hawke-Petit and their daughters, 17-year-old Hayley and 11-year-old Michaela.
A sharply divided Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Texas to continue enforcing abortion restrictions that opponents say have led more than a third of the state´s clinics to stop providing abortions. The justices voted 5-4 to leave in effect a provision requiring doctors who perform abortions in clinics to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. The court´s conservative majority refused the plea of Planned Parenthood and several Texas abortion clinics to overturn a preliminary federal appeals court ruling that allowed the provision to take effect. The four liberal justices dissented.
Anthony Stokes, the 15-year-old boy whose family said he was initially denied a place on the heart transplant waiting list because of "noncompliance," has received a new heart. Anthony underwent the five-hour heart transplant surgery at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, family spokesman Mark Bell told ABC News. He is now resting and in recovery. "I would like to thank everyone involved, and that we will update everyone throughout the day," Melencia Hamilton, Anthony´s mother, said through Bell. Doctors reversed their decision to keep Anthony off the transplant list on Aug. 13.
An impatient baby surprised her parents after she was born ten days early in the parking lot of a Illinois gas station - 33 years after her own father was delivered in an emergency birth in a mall parking lot.

A California couple born on the same day and married for 75 years, died only one day apart. According to the Long Beach Press-Telegram, Helen and Les Brown died on July 16 and 17 respectively, both were 94. “About a year ago, [Helen] had her hand on his face and they were cheek to cheek,” Henderson said. “She said, ‘Isn’t he the most handsome man you’ve ever seen?’ That’s exactly how they were. They were full of love and passion."
Ruling the governor and Detroit’s emergency manager violated the state constitution, an Ingham County Circuit judge ordered Friday that Detroit’s federal bankruptcy filing be withdrawn. “It’s absolutely needed,” said Judge Rosemary Aquilina, observing she hopes Gov. Rick Snyder “reads certain sections of the (Michigan) constitution and reconsiders his actions.” The judge said state law guards against retirement benefits being “diminished” but there will be no such protection in federal bankruptcy court.
An Ohio woman is suing an abortion clinic after she says she made the painful decision to terminate her pregnancy because her life was in danger, only to discover she was still pregnant after the procedure. The northeast Ohio clinic in a court filing denied Ariel Knights´ allegations that doctors were negligent and failed to successfully perform the abortion she sought, eventually leading to the birth of her healthy baby daughter.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
