More than 100 sites to ring
bells for MLK speech

Associated Press, by Brett Zongker

Original Article

Washington —The final refrain of Martin Luther King Jr.’s most famous speech will echo around the world as bells from churches, schools and historical monuments “let freedom ring” in celebration of a powerful moment in civil rights history. Organizers said sites in nearly every state will ring their bells at 3 p.m. their time Wednesday or at 3 p.m. EDT, the hour when King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington. Commemorations are planned from the site of the speech in Washington to the far reaches of Alaska, where participants plan to ring cow bells along with church

Sadly, almost all of MLK´s dream was killed by the black community, black "activists", and lie-beral Demon-RATS, a long time ago.

MLK must be turning in his grave right now seeing how his legacy is being used to turn this nation into a giant welfare plantation for Massa Øvomit, Mistress Pelosi, and the rest of their ilk...

And in Chicago along the safe passage to schools routes, a 21 gun salute will occur.
But it will have nothing to do with 50th anniversary of the I have a dream speech, it will be just business as usual in the killing fields of the Great Society.

Are they commemorating MLK´s repeated cheating on his wife, or MLK´s plagiarism of the work of others in his Ph.D. thesis?

Several years ago, I was consulted by a young woman who was 33 weeks pregnant and was on her way to Kansas get an abortion. I informed her of the multiple options available to her outside of abortion and she decided to go through with the pregnancy even though the child had hydrocephalus and required neurosurgical intervention after birth a few weeks later. She kept the baby and loves the beautiful child that has resulted. A couple of decades ago, I came into the pediatric Intensive Care Unit on morning rounds and was told about a four-year-old girl who had

   

 

  


 
Higher-income Americans hit

Higher-income Americans and some legally married same-sex couples are likely to feel the biggest hits from tax law changes when they file their returns in the next month or two. Taxpayers also will have a harder time taking medical deductions this year. In other changes, the tax rate tables and the standard deduction have been adjusted for inflation, as has the maximum contribution to retirement accounts, including 401(k) plans and Individual Retirement Accounts. The Alternative Minimum Tax has been patched -- permanently -- to prevent more middle-income taxpayers from being drawn in. And starting with the 2013 tax year, there´s

After he and his wife were indicted on fourteen felony counts Tuesday, former Virginia Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell said that he was being charged based on a "misguided legal theory" that would implicate President Barack Obama and nearly every other elected official were it applied as the law of the land. Appearing with his wife, daughter, and son-in-law to address the media hours after the indictment, McDonnell, who is the first Virginia governor to face criminal charges and will be arraigned in Richmond Friday, said he was "falsely accused," that his public service has been "wrongly attacked," and that he would

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.- Republican Gov. Rick Scott said Tuesday he will vote against a proposed constitutional amendment to allow the medical use of marijuana if it makes the 2014 ballot. "I have a great deal of empathy for people battling difficult diseases and I understand arguments in favor of this initiative. But, having seen the terrible effects of alcohol and drug abuse first-hand, I cannot endorse sending Florida down this path and I would personally vote against it," Scott said through a spokeswoman. "No matter my personal beliefs, however, a ballot initiative would be up to the voters to decide." The

Keith Ellison represents Minnesota’s Fifth District in Congress. He proudly identifies himself first and foremost as the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. With a little help from Karen Hunter (as he notes in the Acknowledgements), he has now written the memoir cum manifesto My Country, ‘Tis of Thee: My Faith, My Family, Our Future. Ellison was born and raised in Detroit. He was witness to a part of the city’s death spiral, but he has nothing useful to say about it. Ellison writes in chapter 5 (“My Damascus Moment”): During my freshman year at Wayne State in 1981, Coleman

Fort Hood officials discovered the dead bodies of a man and two children Tuesday morning, the Army base announced. The bodies were found in military housing on the Texas base at 7:15 a.m., officials said, adding “there is no further threat to the community at this time.” The base said it would not release further information until the victims’ next of kin had been notified. On Nov. 5, 2009 Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan murdered 13 people on the base and wounded 30 more.

Equal protection under the law for pre-born human beings is headed our way — and from the work of a surprising demographic: adults younger than 30. A 28-year-old dynamo working on college campuses across the nation, Students for Life President Kristan Hawkins, exemplifies why hers is the “pro-life generation.” Ms. Hawkins feels deeply the loss of nearly one-third of her age group. “The undeniable fact is that nearly a third of my generation was killed by abortion. We are missing brothers, sisters, cousins, friends, husbands and wives. But [we’re] determined to set it right. We’ve seen the ultrasounds of our

A year ago this month, the attorney general for the District of Columbia let NBC News anchor David Gregory off scot-free for possession of a “high capacity” magazine because doing so “would not promote public safety.” Now, Irvin Nathan refuses to use that same prosecutorial discretion for an average citizen who violated a bizarre technicality that makes empty casings and shells a crime as serious as having an illegal firearm. Mr. Witaschek, a successful financial adviser with no criminal history, is the first known case of a citizen being prosecuted in D.C. for inoperable ammunition.

Media Circle Wagons to Protect
Wendy Davis From Bio Falsehoods

It is not as though the media would have to quit their ongoing political assassination of Chris Christie to give the brewing scandal surrounding Texas Democrat Wendy Davis´s bio falsehoods the attention it deserves. The media can do two things at once. But other than clearing the way for President-in-waiting Hillary Clinton, the media is desperately circling the wagons to downplay a legitimate scandal that could take down a rising Democrat star. For two days now, NBC´s Chuck Todd has failed to mention the scandal even once during his hour-long MSNBC political show "The Daily Rundown."

That´s it. That´s why I´m running for governor of California."

Former Energy Secretary Steven Chu will join the board of a company that got millions of dollars from the Department of Energy during Chu’s tenure and is backed by some of the nation’s most politically connected investors. Lithium ion battery manufacturer Amprius announced Chu’s move on Monday. His “ideas and experience will help Amprius accelerate the development of even higher-energy batteries,” the company said in a statement. Chu has already helped the company accelerate that development through more than $4 million in DOE grant money paid to the company since 2011. The company was awarded a $4,998,336 grant that year

In a wide-ranging interview with the New Yorker, President Obama characteristically saw fit to cast aspersions on those who disagree with him. Obama told David Remnick: There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who really just dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black President. (Snip)I dislike President Obama because of his petulance. What other President would tell the opposition party in his first meeting with them, “I won. I’m the president,”?

The NFL is reportedly considering abolishing the extra point after touchdowns as part of its scoring system. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told the NFL Network on Monday that the league´s Competition Committee is looking at proposals that would end extra point kicks after touchdowns in favor of a revised scoring system. "The extra point is almost automatic," Goodell told the network. "I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd (attempts). So it´s a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play." "There´s one proposal in particular that I´ve

He doesn’t have a son — that we know of — but that didn’t stop President Obama from weighing in on the pro football concussion controversy. The president made those comments in a wide-ranging interview appearing in The New Yorker today. The Hill reports: President Obama said that he believed NFL players “know what they’re doing” and understood the impact that concussions could have on their long-term health in an interview with The New Yorker published on Sunday, adding that he would not let his son play pro football. “At this point, there’s a little bit of caveat emptor,” Obama

The world’s richest 85 people control the same amount of wealth as the total held by half the world’s population, according to a report issued today by the British-based anti-poverty charity Oxfam. The means the world’s poorest 3,550,000,000 (3.55 billion) people must live on what the richest 85 possess. Another way to look at it: Each of the wealthiest 85 Earthlings has access to the resources available to about 42 million of the world’s poor, a population equal to the total number of people living in Canada, with those all those from Kentucky and Kansas tossed in.

By day, he was or pretended to be a moderate democrat, fighting to free his people in the name of values all humans held sacred.

As debate in Washington turns increasingly to the issue of income inequality, Gallup´s annual “Mood of the Nation” survey finds that two-thirds of Americans are dissatisfied with the current distribution of income and wealth in the U.S. When asked how satisfied they were with the “the way income and wealth are distributed in the U.S.,” 67 percent of respondents said they were dissatisfied, while 39 percent described themselves as very dissatisfied. In contrast, only 32 percent were content with America´s wealth distribution, and a scant 7 percent described themselves as very satisfied. While there is a sizable gap in sentiments

A new trend for male leggings, known as meggings, is about to hit the mainstream according to a new company which plans to make them accessible for all. Until now the super-tight trousers have been confined to the runway or worn only by rock stars but a new company plans to launch them on the high street. US duo Adam Freck and Andrew Volk, who launched their Chicago-based company Meggings Man Clothing in December, are specialising in leggings for the modern man. [Snip] Unlike traditional leggings, which are typically worn by women, ´meggings´ are designed for the male physique.

Older people do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe. Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full up, so to do humans take longer to access information, it has been suggested. Researchers say this slowing down it is not the same as cognitive decline. “The human brain works slower in old age,” said Dr. Michael Ramscar, “but only because we have stored more information over time. “The brains of older people do not get weak.

Monday´s program will examine the influence and image of presidential wives and will focus entirely on the spouse of President No. 41 and mother of President No. 43.
