´Liberty Van´ grandmother drives
5,000 miles, beats $56 ticket

Express-Times [Easton, PA], by Matthew Bultman

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 12/4/2013 1:14:07 AM

Despite the bumper-to-bumper decorations, Lynda Farley says she can see perfectly fine out of her minivan. And she was willing to drive more than 100 hours and 5,000 miles to prove it. The 62-year-old Kentucky woman made the nearly 12-hour, 800-mile drive from Edmonton, Ky., to Warren County "four or five times" in recent months to fight the $56 obstructed-view traffic ticket. Today, a New Jersey Superior Court judge in Belvidere tossed the ticket after ruling Farley´s view through the windshield wasn´t hindered by the political signs and figurines that cover her van.

Comments:
Lady goes the extra mile(s) defending her right to drive a van festooned with messages that condemn fascists, Marxists, Obamacare, and extol personal liberty. Go, granny, go.

See, all it takes is one person to stand up. Seven in Colorado got 2 State Reps tossed.

So what´s the matter with the rest of the wimps in this country?

She seems to embrace traditional American values and understands our legal system.

I´d love to see her debate Hillary Clinton.

I think what convinced the Judge was when she said... "I look between them and can see fine... The cop claimed I couldn´t see through them...he´s right and an idiot."

Christie celebrates modest
bump in property taxes in 2013
Star-Ledger [Newark, NJ], by Salvador Rizzo    Original Article

Mount Laurel — New Jersey homeowners’ tax bills increased less than 2 percent for the second year in a row, a celebratory Gov. Chris Christie announced Thursday at a town hall in Mount Laurel. The average property tax bill in New Jersey grew 1.7 percent in 2013, Christie told the crowd of more than 400. It was a slightly higher rate of growth than in 2012, when the average bill grew 1.6 percent — but a far cry from the rampant growth of the 2000s, when bills would soar by 7 percent or more each year.

Can Lawfully Electrocute Inmates

Nashville, Tenn. — The State Attorney General says Tennessee can lawfully use the electric chair on death row inmates if drugs used for lethal injection are not available. Attorney General Bob Cooper´s written legal opinion was issued this week as state lawmakers consider a bill that would allow condemned prisoners to be electrocuted if lethal injection is thwarted by big drug companies or the courts. The move comes against the backdrop of a European-led boycott on sales of sedatives to American prisons and legal challenges to drugs made by compounding pharmacies. Tennessee has not executed a prisoner since 2009. Part of

Aeropostale shares closed at an 11-year low Friday after the teen apparel retailer posted lower-than-expected holiday season earnings, said early 2014 prospects were bleak and announced plans to shutter 50 stores. The stock dropped 20% to $5.83 on nearly 12 times normal trading volume. It was the day´s biggest percentage loser on the New York Stock Exchange. Late Thursday, the chain posted a wider-than-expected fourth-quarter loss of 35 cents a share. The company also expects losses in the first quarter - its sixth-straight. Aeropostale operates about 980 mostly mall-based stores in the U.S. and

A long shot challenger for Lindsey Graham’s Senate seat called the Republican incumbent "ambiguously gay.” Dave Feliciano, an ex-police officer from Spartanburg, took shots at Graham’s single marital status at a Columbia campaign event Thursday. "It´s about time that South Carolina (says), ´We´re tired of the ambiguously gay senator from South Carolina,´” he said, according to The State. After he made the comments, Feliciano admitted he may have been “a bit insensitive” but didn’t back down from the message. “As far as respect for the man, not going to happen here,” he added, citing Graham’s questionable conservative votes in the

Amid the fearful talk of home invaders, Nazis and school shooters that has become routine in New Jersey’s gun control debates this past year, one voice stood out at an Assembly hearing Thursday: that of a 9-year-old competitive shooter. “I am an example to others that kids and guns don’t always lead to bad things happening,” Shyanne Roberts told the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee. “I am not a gangbanger or domestic terrorist,” Shyanne testified, speaking to the eight-member committee from a prepared text.

Top Gun takeover: Stolen F-35 secrets
showing up in China’s stealth fighter
Washington Free Beacon, by Bill Gertz    Original Article

A cyber espionage operation by China seven years ago produced sensitive technology and aircraft secrets that were incorporated into the latest version of China’s new J-20 stealth fighter jet, according to U.S. officials and private defense analysts. The Chinese cyber spying against the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II took place in 2007 under what U.S. intelligence agencies codenamed Operation Byzantine Hades, a large-scale, multi-year cyber program that targeted governments and industry. Defense officials said the stolen data was obtained by a Chinese military unit called a Technical Reconnaissance Bureau in the Chengdu province. The data was then

US investigators think that Malaysian Airlines flight 370 remained airborne for four more hours after vanishing from its last recorded position - raising the startling prospect the plane could have been hijacked. Officials suspect that the plane flew for a total of five hours based on data automatically downloaded from the Boeing 777´s Rolls Royce engines and sent back to the ground as part of a routine monitoring program. US counter-terrorism teams are now pursuing the astonishing possibility that the plane and its 239 passengers were diverted to an undisclosed location ´with the intention of using it later for another

A report issued by investigators inside the Environmental Protection Agency found rampant abuse in employees´ use of the agency´s government credit cards, warning that officials were ignoring a long list of safeguards designed to avoid the waste of taxpayer dollars. The EPA´s Office of Inspector General found $79,254 in ´prohibited, improper or erroneous´ spending in a sample of $152,602 in transactions.

Olympia, Wash. — An attempt to fight racism at a community college may have backfired. A group of employees at South Puget Sound Community College sent out an invitation to all 300 staffers. The "Staff, Faculty and Administrators of Color" encouraged employees to reply to the invitation to find out the confidential date and time of what was being called a "happy hour" to "build support and community" for people of color. The invite made it clear white people were not invited. The email read: "If you want to create space for white folks to meet and work on racism, white supremacy,

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday. Mayor Martin Walsh and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have been trying to broker a deal that would have allowed a gay group to march, but those negotiations broke down.

President Obama warned young people that if they don´t sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it. During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained.

The day before the Iowa caucuses in 2008, I wrote about the massive crowds of young people at Barack Obama rallies, noting that his candidacy would collapse “if they don’t show up.” The next night, after Obama’s victory celebration in Des Moines, Obama strategist Steve Hildebrand spotted me in a crowd. “The kids showed up!” he said fiercely. They did. But where are they now? An army of 15 million voters under 30 swept Obama past Hillary Clinton and John McCain and to the presidency in 2008. More than 12 million helped him return in 2012. But now his presidency is on the line — and the Obama youth are abandoning him in

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans."

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
