Sheriff´s Deputy Suspended, Given
Sensitivity Training for Bringing
Skittles, Iced Tea to Work

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Breitbart News

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/19/2013 5:09:30 PM

On Thursday, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Department suspended Corporal Chris Wood for bringing a can of Arizona Ice Tea and a bag of Skittles to work at the Brevard County Jail on Saturday morning. He said that he was trying to send a message about the importance of keeping personal predilections about cases from affecting the work environment; instead, his superiors suspended him. This is Wood’s first disciplinary action in 10 years of working for the force.

Isn´t the Brevard County Sheriff´s Office a government entity? Aren´t they barred from impinging on someone´s right to freedom of speech?

I thought that if you ere carrying ice tea and Skittles, you couldn´t be doing anything wrong. Certainly, it was proof of Trayvon´s innocence.

#13 ~ cheaper and easier is to just take some of the girlfriend´s or baby-daddy´s hypertension grade blood pressure medicine out of the medicine cabinet.

Do an OD on that stuff and you´ll get vertigo like you never imagined vertigo could be.

YOU WILL LEAN!

Good idea to keep your blood pressure medicines locked up and away from kids.

It´d be nice if "responsible" media, especially Breitbart, would report that Trayvon was not carrying Arizona Iced Tea. He was carrying Arizona Watermelon Fruit Cocktail Drink, and the Skittles (hard candy) he was carrying were to sweeten the mixture before he put in the main ingredient, which was Robitussin, or, if he really got what he wanted, was codeine cough syrup. Trayvon was a thug and a druggie who attacked the wrong guy. Too bad for him.

Did the media change Trayvon´s drink to iced tea because they thought watermelon fruit punch would stereotype him?

Look up the concoction "Lean" or "Purple" or "Drank." Remember Trayvon had texted someone looking for a codeine connection.

Regulation: The White House has released a Climate Action Plan that includes the targeting of methane emissions from cows and other barnyard animals that threaten the planet through belching and other, er, activities. It´s our lust for cheeseburgers that´s dooming the planet through climate change, the Obama administration said in a Climate Action Plan released Friday that seeks to save us all from ruminant livestock.

The power to promulgate rules, edicts and commandments applied to consumers, banks, local and state governments, schools, churches and businesses is, alas, almost limitless.

The Dissing of the President

I´ve never liked the word diss—not as a verb, much less as a noun. But watching the Obama administration get the diss treatment the world over, week-in, week-out, I´m beginning to see its uses. Diss: On Sunday, Bloomberg reported that Hasan Rouhani named Hamid Aboutalebi to serve as the ambassador to the United Nations. Mr. Rouhani is the Iranian president the West keeps insisting is a "moderate," mounting evidence to the contrary notwithstanding. Mr. Aboutalebi was one of the students who seized the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979. Here´s the kicker: The State Department—the very institution whose diplomats were held hostage

Lawlessness: The federal government let nearly 68,000 illegal aliens with criminal records go free in 2013. When it´s law and order vs. future votes for Democrats, we all know which wins under this administration. A new study from Washington´s Center For Immigration Studies (CIS) found that the Obama administration in 2013 released 67,879 illegal aliens who had been convicted of a criminal offense — 35% of the total number of the aliens with criminal convictions encountered by law enforcement. The vast majority, the CIS report said, were due to "the Obama administration´s prosecutorial discretion policies, not because the aliens were not deportable." So

Well, this is it. Today is your last chance to enroll in a medical insurance plan under ObamaCare. There will be no exceptions, other than people who haven´t yet enrolled. And if you don´t have insurance, you will pay a penalty. Make that a tax. Unless the tax would be a hardship in any way, in which case just don´t pay it and the IRS will be totally cool.

PARIS: The United States on Sunday pledged $10 million to bolster border security in Moldova at a time when concerns are rising about divisions within the country over a trade deal with Europe and Russia´s intervention in neighbouring Ukraine. The pro-western Moldavan government is pushing ahead with an EU trade deal by the summer despite the increasing debate on whether to integrate with Europe or stick with former Soviet master Russia. It was the rejection of the same EU deal in November by former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich that triggered street protests against his rule after he balked under the threat

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

Early national polling is supporting the prevailing view in Washington that Democrats are in trouble in the 2014 midterm elections. While Democrats are more popular than the GOP among the general public, the party faces a number of challenges in November. First, there´s an enthusiasm gap. Typically, but not always, Republicans vote at higher rates than Democrats in congressional elections. And at this early stage, that seems likely to happen again, perhaps at an even greater rate than usual. One telling indicator came in December, when the Pew Research Center found that Republicans are much more optimistic about their party´s electoral

Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in

WASHINGTON — LeBron James wants you to sign up for health coverage under Obamacare. So do Magic Johnson and Jonah Hill’s mom. Monday is (sort of) the deadline for Americans without employer-provided health coverage to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act — the White House extended it so that anyone who’s begun to sign up by Monday can still complete the process by April 7 — and the final enrollment numbers will be an important test for a law intended to expand access for the uninsured. It’ll also be a test for the White House’s high-octane sales
