I’m pleased that this article properly identifies the criminals as “Looters” and not “protestors.”

El-Marque. Often, “civil insurrection” is an insurance exception.

Yes, SGT Rock! A point I make (usually screaming at the television) everytime I hear the nonsense about “food deserts” or parts of town with no businesses for the poor nonworking citizens of group X or group Y.
WHY would you open a business where you’re likely to be robbed and looted???
What a quandary! A technical infraction – yes; but officers are also sworn to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
Let that sink in. Enemies of the Constitution…. foreign and domestic…..

Reporter gets an Emmy for a story about bullying. Reporter says something the other reporters don’t like. Reporter gets bullied off stage. Irony.

Prayers for all the hospital and law enforcement people who had contact with this criminal (Yes, knowingly exposing hundreds of unsuspecting people to a likely ebola infection is criminal). They must be very frightened about their health and that of their families. It’s nothing to joke about. Hopefully, the blood tests have correctly ruled out the disease for this man.

MissH. I echo your challenge back to you. READ THE REPORTS. The Palins were the victims here. I thought you liberals loved anybody who was a victim.
 October 10, 2014 at 9:06am
Two observations – first – As I suspected all along, THE PALINS WERE THE VICTIMS! Naturally, the press had to twist it to make the Palins look like the criminals here. Anything to advance the lies of the liberal agenda. Media malpractice, yet again.
Second – What a demonstration of shockingly poor grammar by the officers writing the reports. The schools in this country are failing our population.

There is a lot more evidence to support the existence of Jesus than there is for 1) evolution, 2) global warming, 3) moderate Islam, 4) abortion being anything other than murder, 5) heroism of John Kerry, 6) Hillary Clinton’s qualifications for elected office, 7) Bill Clinton’s honesty, 8) accidental loss of Lois Lerner’s emails, 9) George Bush’s incompetence, 10) racism among Conservatives….. and I could go on.
Oh please Do go on!
I haven't laughed so much since the Pres. did his " latte salute"
" George Bush's incompetence" ...you're a riot!

… let’s not forget, the 55 mph speed limit that was introduced in the 1970s by the Carter administration was an environmentalist policy, blamed on the fake gas crisis concocted by another socialist President.

Yes, I see your comments about how this was irresponsible to other drivers’ safety…(eye roll)
But in reality, the old mantra of “speed kills” is invalid.
German autobahns have less than half the accident rate of American highways, despite significantly more traffic density. Why do you suppose that is?…
My opinion is that American drivers are often distracted or bored on long drives; and that is partially because of the arbitrary, slow speed limits. At a lazy 65 mph, it’s easy to eat a sandwich, or change a CD, or text someone (or get sleepy). That is much less likely at 120 mph.
Before the feds (yes, them again) forced the states to lower speeds; we could drive across sparsely-populated areas as appropriate speed.
Here’s an idea – let’s drop some of those ridiculous speed limits in open areas. Not only would your state attract more truck traffic and other cross-country drivers; but think of the speed-enthusiast tourism!

I spent a good deal of my adult life in the military. The federal bureaucracy could learn a lot about how people from different backgrounds can work and live together from the the way the military USED to be. There is NOTHING that some pointy-headed, self-aggrandizing elitist could have taught us about “diversity.” It is NOT diversity that makes a team work together. In the Army and Marines, we were all green. In the Navy and Air Force, we were all blue. There was no red, yellow, black, brown, or white. There was no woman, man, gay, straight. We were soldiers, and proud ones, at that.
In the military (as, I believe, in most of America) whites, blacks, asians, indians, etc are limited only by their willingness to work hard, learn more, and perform their missions. A poor kid from anywhere, with any perceived disadvantage, can gain rank, learn skills, perhaps become an officer. When I served, my Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was General Colin Powell (who happens to be a black man). He didn’t get to that position because of his skin color. He earned it. There were gay soldiers. We knew it, but because “don’t ask, don’t tell” protected them, they served honorably in our ranks. Nobody would participate in an openly political event, on either side of an issue. We were soldiers, not activists.
My honored military is dying at the hands of those who use the hammer of “diversity” to smash it. It’s shameful, dishonest, corrupt.

…this from the actor who slapped his shoe on his head.. “That’s my skull!”
Such a foolish miscreant.

To say that governments around the world use their diplomatic missions for intelligence gathering shouldn’t be news for anyone. This is not new, was not new in the Cold War, and wasn’t new even back when Benjamin Franklin used his position in France to gather intel for the new US in the 18th century.
What is troubling, however, is when a government turns those collection activities against it’s own citizens as a means of controlling them, which is undeniably what we have going on now.

Facebook does have a big problem with fake accounts. There are a lot of kook’s on the Internet (yeah, I’m looking at you, Encinom).
I applaud their efforts to root out the bad eggs; but I don’t think this is the way to do it.
Yeah they do.This is why they are asking for ID.Its possible that the database was hacked.More likely ID Theft though.

Ok I’ll chime in with a guess.
Perhaps it’s a transportable, temporary data center designed to go to the site of a disaster, to back up emergency responders and civilian communication, in the case of a hurricane or similar long-term recovery activity.

What a typically misleading bit of “comedy” from the Daily Show.
Of course, we know that the hipsters think the Daily Show is actually *news.*
Yelton apparently did a poor job as a spokesman; but nothing he said is incorrect. Nothing.
Every request for an interview with The Daily Show should be met with – “You’re kidding me, right? Why would I go on camera with you (enter expletive here).”

This was not a physics mystery.
It’s the same concept that makes a pipe organ work, or that you use when whistling with your mouth. Well-documented fluid dynamics.
The fact that an engineering student has declared it a great achievement, does not make it so.
We have known for centuries how it works and how to exploit it such as the pipe organ as you suggest. The work reported here is an understanding of exactly why it works. Subtle difference but as they point out this new insight may allow novel control and applications heretofore not considered. Not a bad thing just added knowledge of something as you point out we have used for centuries.

These government agents exceeded the limits of their search warrant by seizing these documents.
A warrant has to explicitly detail what is being searched for; and although an incidental discovery of evidence is still permissible; there is no way in which reading her notes could be construed as searching for a firearm. Had the documents been obvious classified government documents (e.g. stamped with classification on their face) then their discovery could properly lead to seizure.
This is an obvious violation of the 4th Amendment.
Further, as a member of the press (yes, fully credentialed and everything), she enjoys special protection under the First Amendment that prohibit the searching of her confidential papers by the government.

I like this story. Kid works hard – because that’s what he should do – and is rewarded.
Too many kids just think an athletic scholarship is owed to them.
