CNG cylinders don´t just explode, then catch fire. Maybe just not enough information and bad translation in this quick article but this sounds suspicious. Who knows how the bus was put together though. It may have just been a matter of time.

My first thought was, Were there any YOUNG GIRLS on that school bus? We know how the muzzies treat them.

It´s a routine unfamiliar to many kids across the country. "Every morning when I was in school I´d put on my vest, coat and go to school," 19-year-old James Adams said. It wasn´t a fancy, fashionable vest. It was bullet proof, and he said it was a part of his daily morning routine. "It´s hard. Sometimes I might take a different route home depending on time of day when I know gang-bangers are outside" he said. It is the rough-and-tumble existence for many young black men like Adams all over the country where the street life of crime, violence and

The conventional wisdom being bandied about in the press is that Republican office holders, reflecting the views of their constituents, are obstinate, uncompromising, and backward-thinking. A recent CBS News/New York Times poll found, however, that precisely the opposite is the case. On a range of issues, that survey found that partisan Republican voters are more willing to compromise a range of issues than their Democratic counterparts. CBS/NYT pollsters asked Republican, Democratic, and independent voters if it was “possible” for them to consider voting for a candidate that did not share their view on a variety of issues. On subjects ranging

With five years having passed since the first tea party rally in 2009, MSNBC host Ronan Farrow invited two liberal guests on his program to discuss the impact the tea party has had on American politics and its potential to continue to shape events. Tara Dowdell, a political strategist and self-described progressive, warned her fellow liberals that it would be a mistake to write off the tea party because they are likely to have an outsize impact on the coming midterm elections. Farrow began by briefly recapping the history of the tea party. Afterword, he asked University of Lehigh professor

Russia gives all its gold medalists
$120,000, a new Mercedes

If you´re in Russia, and you´re a medalist at the Sochi Games, life is pretty good for you right now, with cash and a new car waiting for you. Russia gave all of its gold medalists in the Sochi Games $120,000, plus a brand-new Mercedes GL SUV. This led to a bit of logistical leapfrogging with athletes like Julia Lipnitskaya, who is only 15 and not yet of legal driving age in Russia. (She got a personal driver to go along with the car.) Silver medalists got $76,000 and a Mercedes ML, and bronze medalists got $52,000 and a Mercedes

   

 

  


 
Food Labels Set for New Look

Food labels would have larger-font calorie counts and more realistic portion sizes under an Obama administration proposal to significantly revise nutrition labels for the first time in two decades. The proposal, to be unveiled by first lady Michelle Obama at the White House on Thursday, aims to make it easier for consumers to decipher unhealthy ingredients in packaged foods. The new label would include a line for "added sugars" to distinguish from sugars that appear naturally in food. It would list nutritional values for vitamin D and potassium, which benefit bone health and blood-pressure control. A consumer should be able

The Tea Party at Five: What the
Wacko Birds Have Wrought

On the fifth anniversary of the first Tea Party rallies, the movement´s record appears mixed. It swept the GOP to a majority in the U.S. House, where it has blocked President Barack Obama´s most radical ambitions. It helped the GOP win several governorships, launching reforms that broke the unions´ political stranglehold. At the same time, weak Tea Party candidates cost the GOP the Senate, and aggressive legislative tactics cost it support. The debate for and against the Tea Party obscures the movement´s larger achievement, which is that it reinvigorated a sense of opposition in American politics. Opposition is a natural

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Thursday didn´t rule out involvement in GOP primaries this year against incumbent Republican senators. Cruz said he had made no "ironclad promise" to stay out of the primaries. "What I have said is that I´m likely going to stay out of incumbent Republican primaries," he said. "I haven´t put that in concrete." (Snip) "Things can change in politics," he said. He also criticized the National Republican Senatorial Committee for its involvement in GOP primaries. Cruz is the vice chairman of the NRSC, though he has often worked at cross-purposes with the group.

Priebus made the announcement on Twitter. (Tweets) The RNC’s site selection committee is expected to decide on the final location later this year. Late last month, RNC members appeared to lean toward either Denver or Las Vegas as the site for the 2016 convention.

She’s a mom, a human-rights leader — oh, and another fatherless Kennedy. Testifying in her own defense at her drugged driving trial Wednesday, Kerry Kennedy wasted little time before playing the “Daddy” card. “Daddy was the attorney general during the civil rights movement and then a senator,” the 54-year-old testified, supposedly explaining why she grew up in Virginia, but coyly invoking the memory of her slain father, Sen Robert F. Kennedy. As if jurors needed yet another reminder that a member of the American royal family was slumming right in front of their eyes. “I have 10 brothers and sisters.

Here´s why Lois Lerner could be

Odds are solid that former IRS senior executive Lois Lerner will never appear before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to spill the beans on the IRS scandal. Webb Hubbell would be impressed. Webb Hubbell? Those old enough to remember Bill Clinton was in the Oval Office will instantly recall Hubbell as Hillary Clinton´s former law partner. He went to jail for overbilling clients. But Hubbell never talked after his conviction and while serving 21 months in a federal prison. He didn´t talk after two further indictments, one that was thrown out and another that was plea-bargained.Like the

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) has recalled IRS honcho Lois Lerner to testify on the agency’s abuse of Tea Party and conservative groups. She has since retired from the IRS and is receiving a six-figure retirement income, making more money per year after leaving her government job in disgrace than most Americans make working full-time. Last time America saw Lerner was last May, when she raised her hand and was sworn in to testify, then declared her innocence and took the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

WASHINGTON— The Army removed 588 soldiers from sensitive jobs such as sexual assault counselors and recruiters after finding they had committed infractions such as sexual assault, child abuse and drunken driving, officials said Wednesday. The move resulted from orders by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel last year that all the services review the qualifications of people holding those jobs as part of an effort to stem a rising number of sexual assaults in the military. The Army said it reviewed the qualifications and records of 20,000 soldiers and found 588 unsuitable for their jobs as recruiters, drill sergeants, training school instructors

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation. Prominent members of the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, also sided with the bill’s opponents, who argued that the measure would have allowed people

Call it what you want -- anti-gay or religious rights -- but if Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signs a controversial bill, you might not be calling Arizona the home of the 2015 Super Bowl. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, S.B. 1062, is the current controversy du jour out of Arizona, and the National Football League is with the opposition. “Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told USA Today. “We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so should

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

The Arizona Chamber of Commerce said Monday the bill could hurt tourism, make it hard to recruit new businesses and open the door to lawsuits against businesses. Three Republican state senators also joined thee call for Brewer to veto the bill. On Wednesday, it was reported that

Brewer has not said whether she will sign or veto the measure. However, a number of media outlets have reported people close to her expect her to veto it.

The attorney for Lois Lerner blasted the House GOP for recalling the former IRS official to testify next week, saying it would only serve to embarrass her and could increase threats against Lerner and her family. Bill Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that he told committee staff in January that Lerner would continue to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if recalled, and that she would "happily testify" if given immunity. Taylor, of Zuckerman Spaeder, said he heard nothing further from the committee until Issa wrote to him on Tuesday, saying he was hauling Lerner
