Gee whiz, is Dirty Harry getting miffed that his shady business dealings with the Chinese has been exposed? It’s time to the fool to let it go, he’s only fueling a hot situation. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he believes the supporters who rallied around Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy in his fight against the federal government are “domestic terrorists” and Bundy does not respect his country.
Wisconsin has passed a law to limit private custody transfers of children, the first law of its kind in the United States, responding to a Reuters investigation that exposed the dangers of the unregulated practice. In September, Reuters reported that parents were transferring custody of their unwanted adopted children to strangers met on the Internet, often with no government oversight and sometimes illegally. No state or federal laws specifically prohibit the practice, which is known as “re-homing.” And state laws that restrict the advertising and custody transfers of children are often confusing, and rarely spell out criminal sanctions.
In other words Obama wants to raise taxes, but not cut spending. Obama’s fiscal 2015 budget request would boost U.S. tax revenues by nearly $1.4 trillion over 10 years if fully enacted, slashing deficits by $1.05 trillion while funding new spending, the Congressional Budget Office said on Thursday.

Just days after resigning, there’s talk that former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will run for US Senate. Sebelius, the former governor of Kansas, is reportedly considering challenging Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), a longtime colleague who accused her of “gross incompetence” and called for her resignation during the rollout of the Affordable Care Act.
More waste of money. The only way to get people back to work is stop rewarding them for not working. Obama will announce an initiative on Wednesday to devote $600 million to address a central challenge of today’s economy: How to train workers for skills they need for jobs that are open but hard to fill.
Gee, doesn’t the government ever give up, grabbing money? Well now, we are hearing that in competitive job markets like Silicon Valley, companies are doing everything they can to entice the best and brightest — offering freebies that have become the stuff of legend. To get good employees, companies many times offer perks like free food at lavish cafeterias, laundry and even yoga are not unheard of.
The push for gun control still isn’t over. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he will spend $50 million this election year for stricter gun laws in the country. Bloomberg said his new group Everytown for Gun Safety would focus on building grassroots support.
