Man Waves American
Flag in All 50 States

ABC News, by Mattie Kahn

Posted By:MissMolly, 6/27/2014 5:03:48 AM

Most of us celebrate the Fourth of July at a barbecue with a burger. But Howard Li, 25, is not your average American. It took Li just under 700 days to travel to all 50 states on a road trip of revolutionary proportions. After completing the journey, Li stitched together video footage of himself in each state waving an American flag in front of a major landmark or monument. Uploaded to YouTube in the "spirit of Independence Day," the result is an 83-second video that will put your annual sheet cake to shame. Li told ABC News that he came up with

I like it. A costly endeavor however, 700 nights in hotels and 2100 meals in restaurants must cost quite a bit. I wonder who sponsored it?

A Disregarded Request From a Beloved
Senator Shakes Up Hawaii’s Primary
New York Times, by Adam Nagourney    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/1/2014 4:30:35 AM     Post Reply
WAIANAE, Hawaii — For over 50 years, Senator Daniel K. Inouye, a Democrat, was the closest thing modern-day Hawaii had to political royalty: He began representing the state in Washington two years before its most famous citizen was even born. As he lay dying in 2012, Mr. Inouye asked the governor, Neil Abercrombie, to appoint Representative Colleen Hanabusa, a protégée and the daughter of a gas station owner here, to fill his seat. But Mr. Abercrombie, a fellow Democrat, disregarded that deathbed request, choosing his lieutenant governor, Brian Schatz, as the interim senator instead. Eighteen months later, the decision to defy one

Hillary down in the dumps: Is

During a recent break in her national book tour, Hillary Clinton sat at her kitchen table in Chappaqua, N.Y., rubbing her forehead. She had been experiencing splitting headaches and was finding it increasingly difficult to hide the throbbing pain in her head while doing television interviews. ABC News’ Diane Sawyer and NPR´s Terry Gross had asked Hillary some tough questions—about her wealth and her position on gay marriage—and Hillary had badly bungled her answers. What’s more, sales of Hillary’s memoir, “Hard Choices,” for which she was paid a reported $14 million, were alarmingly disappointing. After selling 80,000 copies the first week,

   

 

  


 
Doctors´ group says annual pelvic
exams unnecessary for healthy women
CBS News, by Jessica Firger    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/1/2014 4:09:22 AM     Post Reply
Each year, millions of women in the U.S. head to their gynecologist for an annual check-up. While it may not be the most pleasant experience in the world, most consider the prodding and mild discomfort of a routine pelvic exam to be an essential part of preventive health care. But now the American College of Physicians (ACP) is challenging the need for this practice. On Monday the group published a new set of guidelines that recommends against annual pelvic exams for healthy, non-pregnant women. After a review of studies conducted between 1946 and 2014, the ACP concluded that the risks posed by

Patriotism as pest control:
Florida’s weird fireworks law
Tampa Tribune [FL], by James L. Rosica    Original Article

TALLAHASSEE — The coming of Independence Day means fireworks season — and the beginning of the institutionalized charade behind their sale in Florida. In the Sunshine State, one does not buy a bottle rocket for recreation; one buys it to scare birds away from farms and fisheries. That’s right: Explosives for pest control. Technically speaking, consumer fireworks are illegal in Florida. But nearly 60 years ago, state lawmakers passed an exception — now the only one of its kind in the United States — for fireworks purchases by farms and fish hatcheries. That’s how vendors, including those in the ubiquitous tents that spring up

Supreme Court to rule on case involving

WINTHROP HARBOR, Ill. - On Monday morning, the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hand down its opinion on a case involving a Winthrop Harbor woman which could have a significant impact on the future of public sector unions. Illinois state law allows Pam Harris to work as the full time caregiver for her son Josh, who is severely disabled. She is paid by Medicaid. But when Gov. Quinn signed an executive order allowing caregivers like Harris to be unionized, she filed a lawsuit, saying she´s technically not a state employee and complaining that her son´s Medicaid benefits would go toward a

WASHINGTON—In the Georgetown gated community of Hillandale, residents live in secluded calm governed by some 50 pages of rules banning fences, motorcycles, certain paint colors, tree species and excess dogs and cats (no more than two total per household). "People come to live in Hillandale because of the quality of our residential community, and that is something that we need to maintain," says resident Sallie Forman. Then one of the most powerful economic policy makers in the world moved in and, in the words of some here, ruined the neighborhood. As neighbors tell it, earlier this year, the security detail protecting new Federal

On Friday, Rich commended the Club for Growth for putting a lot of money — over $3.1 million to be exact — behind its vocal support of Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Senate primary. In terms of dollars spent, the Senate Conservatives Fund came in second, pouring over $1.3 million into the state to back McDaniel. Both groups also spent heavily in the three-week runoff election: approximately $650,000 and $250,000 respectively, and, in a race that was conducted largely over the airwaves, that money went mostly to television and digital advertisements, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Hillary Clinton is Humpty Dumpty
Legal Insurrection, by William A. Jacobson    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/30/2014 5:41:47 AM     Post Reply
If Hillary Clinton runs for President, she’s still the odds-on favorite because she has the Democratic machine behind her. The conventional wisdom is that the nomination is Hillary’s to lose. If Hillary’s disastrous book rollout and tone-deafness about her wealth are any indication, Hillary might just accomplish the unthinkable of imploding a second time as presumptive nominee. Hillary’s worst enemy is Hillary. There’s only so long you can pretend to be something you are not. Enter Elizabeth Warren. We have been arguing for years that Warren is a unique political talent, someone who can demagogue the national victim narrative better than anyone in recent

“[M]ore than half of everybody’s babies will be born where there was never a marriage. That is a disaster. It is wrong, and someone has to say, again, ‘It is simply not right. You shouldn’t have a baby before you’re ready, and you shouldn’t have a baby when you’re not married. You just have to stop it.’ We’ve got to turn it around.” Guess who said that, some fire-and-brimstone, Bible Belt preacher? Nope, it’s Bill Clinton, that darling of feminists and the broader progressive movement. His personal dalliances aside, Clinton, the poverty warrior, was right. Modern life has triggered what

Judging from an appearance on CNN by former IRS executive Lois Lerner’s attorney, William Taylor III, the embattled former IRS official at the center of the targeting scandal is embracing an argument similar to the White House’s defense of the IRS as a whole: Republicans are on a political witch-hunt. More accurately, Taylor’s defense of his client is based on the notion that Lerner is the real victim of targeting here. “She was as upset as anybody else was about the loss of the emails and the other documents which were on their which were quite important to her,” Taylor said of

Megyn Kelly faced off with former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers in an explosive interview tonight in which Kelly repeatedly confronted Ayers about bombings and killings that the radical group was reportedly involved in. Kelly asked Ayers how many bombings he was personally responsible for. Ayers declined to answer, but did acknowledge the “terrible risk” they took with some of their more out-there tactics. Kelly grilled him on how the Weather Underground “declared a state of war against the U.S. government” and encouraged violence. Kelly went through a series of instances in which the Weather Underground was tied to bombings and killings,

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States. The proposed project would have extended from Alberta, Canada to Illinois, transporting approximately 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Estimated cost is $1.7 billion. But Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and 2014. Democrats are beholden to the radical green movement – the poor and middle class be damned. Now this… Canada pulled the plug on Keystone and will

As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible? On January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security advertised for a vendor to escort 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children,” indicating that they not only knew the alien invasion was coming, they planned it.

Today, the Supreme Court ruled in the nationally followed Hobby Lobby case. The for-profit corporations that brought these cases to the Supreme Court—a craft store and a cabinet manufacturer—argued that the corporations’ religious convictions should excuse them from compensating their employees through the comprehensive health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers sought to exclude insurance coverage of several forms of birth control because, contrary to medical and scientific evidence, the corporations’ owners believe some birth control causes abortions. The Affordable Care Act already includes special arrangements for houses of worship and religious non-profits, like schools and hospitals. Houses

One week after traveling to Mississippi to do his utmost to help Senator Thad Cochran (R) beat Tea Party rival Chris McDaniel, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) talked about the strengths he saw in Cochran´s approach to campaigning. According to AZ Central, McCain dismissed criticism over the tactics the Republican Establishment used to get black Democrats to cross over and vote for Cochran. Said McCain, "There are some people complaining that African-American voters voted. [But] I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans." He described Cochran´s "get-out-the-vote campaign"

The Israeli Air Force carried out what it called "precision strikes" on 34 "terror targets" in the Gaza Strip overnight, after the discovery of the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank earlier this month. The Israeli Defense Forces said the strikes were in response to rockets being launched earlier into Israel from Gaza. The waves of rockets from Gaza and IDF retaliations have picked up since the teens were kidnapped and the Israeli crackdown began. Hamas has not claimed responsibility for launching the rockets but Israel holds them responsible for everything coming out of Gaza. The Israel Defense

Meanwhile, Malia - whose 16th birthday is on July 4th - spent the day at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, where she and a friend were given VIP access to many of the park´s rides.

President Barack Obama announced today that he would again go around Congress to enact immigration reform measures. In a hastily scheduled statement this afternoon from the White House Rose Garden, Obama said he would ´greatly prefer´ Congress passing any sort of immigration reform legislation, even if it wasn´t the bill he supports, but he was done sitting around waiting for that to happen. The president said his administration would ´refocus´ its efforts on the border, and he would use his ´existing legal authority´ to do ´what Congress refuses to do´ and fix the broken immigration system.
