” From a distance, the small group of Haitian immigrants at the public library looks like a prayer meeting or political gathering. Dressed colorfully but comfortably, the women speak in heavily accented English and sit every day for hours around a small wooden table studying to be nurses.

  The library sits at the heart of one of the most diverse counties in the USA. More than 50 languages are spoken in the public schools, and this is what more and more communities across America will look like soon — very soon.

  Racial and ethnic diversity is spreading far beyond the coasts and into surprising places across the USA, rapidly changing how Americans live, learn, work and worship together — and even who our neighbors are.

  Cities and towns far removed from traditional urban gateways such as New York, Miami, Chicago and San Francisco are rapidly becoming some of the most diverse places in America, an analysis of demographic data by USA TODAY shows.

  Small metro areas such as Lumberton, N.C., and Yakima, Wash., and even remote towns and counties — such as Finney County, Kan., or Buena Vista County, Iowa — have seen a stunning surge in immigrants, making those places far more diverse. 

The result: For the first time, the next person you meet in this country — at work, in the library, at a coffee shop or a movie ticket line — will probably be of a different race or ethnic group than you.”

War on Poverty Turns 50: Are We Winning Yet?

image

” The War on Poverty is 50 years old. Over that time, federal and state governments have spent more than $19 trillion fighting poverty. But what have we really accomplished?

  Although far from conclusive, the evidence suggests that we have successfully reduced many of the deprivations of material poverty, especially in the early years of the War on Poverty. However, these efforts were more successful among socioeconomically stable groups such as the elderly than low-income groups facing other social problems. Moreover, other factors like the passage of the Civil Rights Act, the expansion of economic opportunities to African Americans and women, increased private charity, and general economic growth may all have played a role in whatever poverty reduction occurred. “

New York’s Registry Of Mentally Ill People Barred From Having Firearms Draws Heavy Criticism

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A newly created database of New Yorkers deemed too mentally unstable to carry firearms has grown to roughly 34,500 names, a previously undisclosed figure that has raised concerns among some mental health advocates that too many people have been categorized as dangerous.

  The database, established in the aftermath of the mass shooting in 2012 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, and maintained by the state Division of Criminal Justice Services, is the result of the Safe Act. It is an expansive package of gun control measures pushed through by the administration of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. The law, better known for its ban on assault weapons, compels licensed mental health professionals in New York to report to the authorities any patient “likely to engage in conduct that would result in serious harm to self or others.

  But the number of entries in the database highlights the difficulty of America’s complicated balancing act between public safety and the right to bear arms when it comes to people with mental health issues.

“ That seems extraordinarily high to me,” said Sam Tsemberis, a former director of New York City’s involuntary hospitalization program for homeless and dangerous people, now the chief executive of Pathways to Housing, which provides housing to the mentally ill. “Assumed dangerousness is a far cry from actual dangerousness.” “

” An Oklahoma family is outraged over the portions their 17-year-old daughter is being served at lunchtime.

  Kaytlin Shelton took a photo at her high school in Chickasha, Oklahoma, Monday showing a lunch with meat, two sets of crackers, a slice of cheese, and two pieces of cauliflower. The school serves this every other week, Fox 25 reported.

  School Superintendent David Cash told Fox 25 the small portions are due to federal regulations to fight childhood obesity, and knows that some kids are going hungry in his schools.

You’ve got in some cases little kids that their only two meals are breakfast and lunch at school, and they’re getting… a grand total of 1100 calories. That’s not enough. “

City Orders Family To Get Rid Of Special Needs Child’s Make-A-Wish Gift

 

 

Make-A-Wish Playset

” 10-year-old Tiffany Miranda of Santa Fe Springs, CA suffers from a severe seizure disorder that prevents her from playing on playground equipment in public parks. To ease her quality of life, the Make-A-Wish Foundation built her a playground play set, which her parents placed in the back yard of their own property. However, according to CBS Los Angeles, the Santa Fe Springs city government has issued a citation ordering the family to remove the play set from their back yard, claiming that it is an eyesore.

  Jessica Torres, Tiffany’s mother, told CBS Los Angeles, “When I asked the city, ‘So where do you expect my daughter to play?’ they said ‘Well, the city’s not responsible for your daughter’s disability…’ They said ‘Your Tiffany is not our problem.’” Stating her intention to fight back against the citation, Torres said, “I’m not going to let this go. I’m not going to remove the playhouse and I’m not going to remove her canopy and I want them to stop picking on my Tiffany.” Torres said that her daughter loves playing on her playground play set, “She’s able to be a normal kid. She has her own special park.” “

They Are Coming For Your Children

 

 

 

 

 

” Home-schoolers represent the only authentically radical social movement in the United States (Occupy Wall Street was a fashion statement) and so they must be suppressed, as a malevolent committee of leftist academics and union bosses under the direction of Governor Dannel Malloy is preparing to do in Connecticut, using the Sandy Hook massacre as a pretext. The ghouls invariably rush to the podium after every school massacre, issuing their insipid press releases before the bodies have even cooled, and normally they’re after your guns. But the Malloy gang is after your children.

  Malloy’s committee on the Newtown shootings is recommending that Connecticut require home-schooling families to present their children to the local authorities periodically for inspection, to see to it that their psychological and social growth is proceeding in the desired direction. For anybody even passingly familiar with contemporary government schools, which are themselves a peerless source of social and emotional dysfunction, this development is bitterly ironic.

Adam Lanza was the product of madness, but he also was very much a product of the public schools and their allied institutions. He was briefly — very briefly — homeschooled after his parents had exhausted every other option. His mental troubles began long before he was home-schooled and were in fact well known to and documented by the various credentialed authorities under whose management he spent his youth, from his kindergarten therapists to the scholars at Yale’s Child Study Center. Far from being removed from the public system, Lanza was still attending student-club meetings at Newtown’s high school just before the horrific events at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

  As City Journal notes, the Malloy gang says that Lanza’s educational and medical records support its proposals, which is curious: Its members have no access to those records. But a government commission says that it is so, so it must be so.”

Poll: Americans Worry _ Can Government Protect Us?

 

Govt Poll

 

Click for PDF of poll results

 

 

” Americans lack confidence in the government’s ability to protect their personal safety and economic security, a sign that their widespread unease about the state of the nation extends far beyond politics, according to the latest Associated Press-GfK poll.

  With Election Day about a month away, more than half those in the survey said Washington can do little to effectively lessen threats such as climate change, mass shootings, racial tensions, economic uncertainty and an unstable job market.

  For many of those questioned in the poll, conducted before doctors in Texas diagnosed a Liberian man with the Ebola virus, the concern starts with the economy.

  The poll found that 9 in 10 of those most likely to vote in the Nov. 4 election call the economy an extremely or very important issue. Teasdale is among those who say the slow recovery from the recession is a top concern.

  Despite improvements nationally, business is far from booming in his state, Teasdale said. He’s been supplementing his stagnant salary by renovating and renting out duplexes and has little faith the situation will improve soon. He wants government to get out of the way of business.

” If you’re putting so much restriction on them where it isn’t practical for them to expand or grow, why should they?” Teasdale asked.

  Those surveyed also pointed to events such as the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, that followed the fatal police shooting an unarmed black 18-year-old and the beheading of a woman in an Oklahoma food processing plant, apparently at the hand of a suspended co-worker.

” This is the first time I’ve felt insecure in my own country,” said Jan Thomas, 75, of Stevensville, Montana. “Especially after the beheading in Oklahoma. That’s scary.”

  The poll found that Democrats tend to express more faith in the government’s ability to protect them than do Republicans. Yet even among Democrats, just 27 percent are confident the government can keep them safe from terrorist attacks. Fewer than 1 in 5 say so on each of the other issues, including climate change.”

ComputerCOP: The Dubious ‘Internet Safety Software’ That Hundreds Of Police Agencies Have Distributed To Families

 

 

 

 

 

 

” For years, local law enforcement agencies around the country have told parents that installing ComputerCOP software is the “first step” in protecting their children online.

 Police chiefs, sheriffs, and district attorneys have handed out hundreds of thousands of copies of the disc to families for free at schools, libraries, and community events, usually as a part of an “Internet Safety” outreach initiative. The packaging typically features the agency’s official seal and the chief’s portrait, with a signed message warning of the “dark and dangerous off-ramps” of the Internet.

  As official as it looks, ComputerCOP is actually just spyware, generally bought in bulk from a New York company that appears to do nothing but market this software to local government agencies.

  The way ComputerCOP works is neither safe nor secure. It isn’t particularly effective either, except for generating positive PR for the law enforcement agencies distributing it. As security software goes, we observed a product with a keystroke-capturing function, also called a “keylogger,” that could place a family’s personal information at extreme risk by transmitting what a user types over the Internet to third-party servers without encryption. That means many versions of ComputerCOP leave children (and their parents, guests, friends, and anyone using the affected computer) exposed to the same predators, identity thieves, and bullies that police claim the software protects against.”

Your Medical Record Is Worth More To Hackers Than Your Credit Card

 

 

 

 

” Your medical information is worth 10 times more than your credit card number on the black market.

  Last month, the FBI warned healthcare providers to guard against cyber attacks after one of the largest U.S. hospital operators, Community Health Systems Inc, said Chinese hackers had broken into its computer network and stolen the personal information of 4.5 million patients.

  Security experts say cyber criminals are increasingly targeting the $3 trillion U.S. healthcare industry, which has many companies still reliant on aging computer systems that do not use the latest security features.

” As attackers discover new methods to make money, the healthcare industry is becoming a much riper target because of the ability to sell large batches of personal data for profit,” said Dave Kennedy, an expert on healthcare security and CEO of TrustedSEC LLC. “Hospitals have low security, so it’s relatively easy for these hackers to get a large amount of personal data for medical fraud.” “

 

 

   Thanks Obama , the government has played right into the hands of the cyber-thieves on this issue . By all means let’s centralize all of our personal data where it is easy to access both by the State and the crooks . Nice job .

The 35.4 Percent: 109,631,000 On Welfare

 

 

 

 

 

” 109,631,000 Americans lived in households that received benefits from one or more federally funded “means-tested programs” — also known as welfare — as of the fourth quarter of 2012, according to data released Tuesday by the Census Bureau.

  The Census Bureau has not yet reported how many were on welfare in 2013 or the first two quarters of 2014.

  But the 109,631,000 living in households taking federal welfare benefits as of the end of 2012, according to the Census Bureau, equaled 35.4 percent of all 309,467,000 people living in the United States at that time.

  When those receiving benefits from non-means-tested federal programs — such as Social Security, Medicare, unemployment and veterans benefits — were added to those taking welfare benefits, it turned out that 153,323,000 people were getting federal benefits of some type at the end of 2012.

  Subtract the 3,297,000 who were receiving veterans’ benefits from the total, and that leaves 150,026,000 people receiving non-veterans’ benefits.

  The 153,323,000 total benefit-takers at the end of 2012, said the Census Bureau, equaled 49.5 percent of the population. The 150,026,000 taking benefits other than veterans’ benefits equaled about 48.5 percent of the population. “

Census Bureau: One New Migrant Enters U.S. Every 40 Seconds

” The Census Bureau calculates that one person enters the United States legally, on net, every 40 seconds.

  The Census Bureau’s U.S. and World Population Clock lists  “components of population change” on the website: “one birth every 7 seconds;” “one death every 13 seconds;” “one international migrant (net) every 40 seconds;” making for a “net gain of one person every 12 seconds.”

  The Census provides some background on the immigration debate in the United States on August 3rd, apropos of the 131st anniversary of the law banning people from immigrating to the United States if they were likely to need government assistance. “

New York City Is America’s Unhappiest City: Study

  The study leaned on a questionnaire that has been administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the last several years and asks respondents: “In general, how satisfied are you with your life?” “

California Limits Full-Contact Youth Football Practices

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Gov. Jerry Brown announced Monday that he has signed a bill limiting full-contact football practices at middle and high schools in response to concerns about concussions, even as many teams already comply with the rules.

  Brown approved the bill, AB 2127, with the support of medical groups and the California Interscholastic Federation, which oversees California high school athletics.

  Assemblyman Ken Cooley, D-Rancho Cordova, said his bill is motivated by parents worried about the risks associated with concussions, which include long-term brain damage and early onset dementia.

  Under the legislation taking effect in 2015, drills involving game-speed tackling are prohibited in the offseason. They are limited to 90-minute sessions twice a week the rest of the year. The rules apply to public, private and charter schools.”

The Nationalization Of Childhood

 

 

 

 

” ~When I was a kid and watched sci-fi movies set in a futuristic dystopia where individuals are mere chattels of an unseen all-powerful government and enduring human relationships are banned and the progeny of transient sexual encounters are the property of the state, I always found the caper less interesting than the unseen backstory: How did they get there from here? From free western societies to a bunch of glassy-eyed drones wandering around in identikit variety-show catsuits in a land where technology has advanced but liberty has retreated: how’d that happen?

  Well, the current Planet of the Apes prequels have also figured out that’s the most interesting part of the story. (I liked Rise of… immensely, Dawn not so much, but it would be a foolish man who would attempt to compete with Steve Sailer’s brilliant analysis. If American monodailies weren’t determined to die as the most boring papers in the English-speaking world, The New York Times would hire Mr Sailer as their movie critic.)

  But who needs to go to the multiplex when the prequel to all those glassy-eyed serf dystopias is taking place on the news pages? Megan McArdle writes today about the spate of American mommies charged with and, indeed, jailed for leaving their pre-teen children unsupervised. For example, NBC reports from Connecticut:

  Police arrived at 60 Middle Street in Bristol to find the girl alone in the car with the windows rolled up. She was alert and responsive and told officers she had asked to stay in the car while her mom ran inside, according to police.

  Police said the outside temperature was about 85 degrees and the car’s interior “was not excessively hot.”

  The girl’s mother, 30-year-old Christina Williams, was issued a misdemeanor summons for leaving a child unsupervised in a motor vehicle.”

Hey Harry Reid: Here Are Some Truly Racist Trademarks

 

 

 

” Redskin may be offensive to Harry Reid (and other stupid Leftists), however there are other names that are at least as offensive, if not more. Business Insider did a Top 10 list of racist marketing that is sure to get a few chuckles, and you can see them here. As for trademarks like the Redskins, here is a list of a few that are pending.

Let’s see how the government handles this racism:

Figgas over Niggas: This pending trademark seeks to cover a line of “Apparel for dancers, namely, tee shirts, sweatshirts, pants, leggings, shorts and jackets.” “Niggas,” of course, is a slang version of the word “nigger,” a term considered highly offensive towards black Americans.

Kraut Kap: Another recently-filed trademark, this one for a line of plastic lids. “Kraut” was made famous in World War II as a derogatory term for opposing German soldiers, as well as Germans in general.

Dago Swagg: A label created for a line of clothing. ”Dago” is a corruption of the common name Diego, and is used in English-speaking countries as an offensive term for those of Italian descent, and occasionally people from other Mediterranean countries as well.

Cracka Azz Skateboards: Unsurprisingly, this trademark was taken out for a line of skateboards and longboards, as well as associated clothing such as bandannas. While the USPTO helpfully notes that “The wording ‘cracka azz’ has no meaning in a foreign language,” “cracka” is a slang version of “cracker,” which in this context is a term of derision for whites, used primarily within the black community.”

Another Business Moves Abroad, Leaving Behind High U.S. Taxes

 

 

 

 

” Yet another business is moving abroad to escape the America’s high tax rates.

  Medtronic, one of the world’s largest medical device companies, recently acquired Covidien for $42.9 billion in a move that will relocate headquarters from Minneapolis to Ireland.

  The draw? Medtronic’s corporate tax rate will drop from America’s 35 percent rate to Ireland’s 12.5 percent rate.

“ That’s how it works,” Jim Cramer of CNBC’s Mad Money said. “You buy a company that’s legitimately headquartered in a lower-tax country, even if it does all of its business here, and then you can get out of paying the higher U.S. taxes.” “

Stuck in Traffic? Thanks, Obama!: Feds To Regulate Waze, Google Maps, And Other Navigation Apps

 

 

 

 

 

” The Obama administration wants to cripple the navigation and traffic reporting apps on your smartphone. In the name of safety, of course.

  Provisions in the proposed transportation bill—which Congress will look at in the next few months—would give the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration the power to regulate apps like Google Maps and Waze, the crowdsourced traffic reporting tool. 

  They’re going to start with automobiles’ built-in navigation devices, since regulatory authority is clearer there. Possible “features” include limiting inputs when the car is in motion, or making people click a button saying that they are a passenger.

  But of course, if they make the onboard navigation systems in cars suck, people will just turn to their smartphones, right? So they had better regulate those too. 

  The impulse to regulate against distracted driving has a long, not terribly glorious pedigree, dating all the way back to efforts to go after people who were changing the radio station while driving. In more recent years, talking and texting bans have failed to show clear positive results and may even cause harm.”

As With All Things Progressive It All Depends On What The Meaning Of “Is” Is

 

 

    By now everyone has heard of the latest effort from Nanny Bloomberg as the astroturfers in the liberal media regarding the epidemic of “school shootings” since Sandy Hook . 74 of them if the usual suspects are to be believed . Since this meme seems to be spreading like wildfire across the web we thought we would make a concerted effort to quantify exactly what the gun grabber Statists consider to be “school shootings” .

   Below is our result . Make of it what you will and please understand that by quibbling with the Statist’s methodology we are in no way minimizing the pain and horror felt by the families that are made to suffer at the hands of thugs with guns .  However , all sympathies aside , that does not grant the Left license to twist the English language to their will .

 Let us start by saying that in our minds a school shooting at least as they have come to be understood is an incident where an disgruntled individual , whether it be student or adult enters a place of education with the intent to “avenge wrongs” however warped or imagined they may be by killing and maiming as many students and/or faculty as possible , usually before taking their own lives .

 If that definition is acceptable it stands to reason that other types of shootings , whatever the reason , are not exactly honest comparisons to “going postal” . That means that common robberies , suicides , arguments over games , debts , girlfriends and what have you should be categorized as what they truly are , at least to those without an agenda , crimes , plain old ordinary , violent crimes .

 That being the case , Everytown’s map is very misleading to say the least , and downright deceitful to be perfectly honest.We took they time to explore every single incident included on Bloomy’s map and provide the reader with a synopsis of the fatalities/injuries links to the sources and a diagnosis of the type of shooting that each incident represents .

Below is our result , survey the data , follow the links , bookmark the page and feel free to use these facts in any refutation you might need to defend against the Statists in your sphere of influence . At the end we have provided an approximate count on the actual school shootings that meet our above mentioned criteria along with what we feel are “other” categories … ie , robbery , suicide , lovers spats , gang violence , accidental discharges , fights that escalate to arms , etc .

    There is your data . As you can see each alleged “school shooting” from the infamous map , as defined by Bloomberg & Co is represented with a link to a legitimate news story about the incident . Two incidents claimed by the map were unable to be corroborated by yours truly and so that brings the count to 72 alleged incidents .

   Of those 72 “school shootings” we can only count 8 as meeting our criteria as far as being as school shooting in the Columbine/Sandy Hook interpretation . Of course none of them come anywhere near the horror of those but that is an argument for another day . 

   Of the 64  incidents left our count leads us to the following statistics : 

 

     Gang related/Drive-by – 3

     Robbery/Crime – 6

      Fights – 13

      Suicides – 10

      Personal – 8

      After Hours/Proximity To School – 12

      Accidental Discharges/Irresponsible Shooting/Stray Bullets – 10

      Self-Defense – 2

 

    The death toll for all of these shootings combined compares to the average weekend in Chicago at 31 fatalities . Of those thirty one lost lives ten were non-students who were found/killed on school property after hours , eight were suicides , three were the perpetrators themselves and one was a criminal killed in self-defense which leaves nine students and/or teachers killed . 

It goes without saying that any loss of life is a tragedy but at the same time it is just as unseemly to dishonestly climb atop the graves of these unfortunate lost souls and attempt to gain cheap political points in order to further one’s personal agenda and that is what is taking place here .

    Bloomberg and his allies , like the progressives in general , are attempting to tug at the heartstrings and push their legislative goals wrapped as a moral imperative that is not to be questioned under pain of being called uncaring . It’s just another card out of the “racist” deck cavalry . Whenever they are losing an argument on the merits they jump up , knock the cards from the table and cry “have you no decency” ?

Just an aside before we leave you . The number of children that die at the hands of their parents every year in America dwarves the numbers above . Yes , you read correctly . It is estimated that somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 children under the age of five are killed each year by their parents . Think about that before deciding that school shootings are some sort of epidemic .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Justina Pelletier Makes Tearful Plea To Judge, Asking To Go Home

 

 

 

” Justina Pelletier, the Connecticut teen taken from her family more than a year ago by Massachusetts officials after her parents took her to a hospital for help, made a tearful plea to the Bay State family court judge who holds her fate in his hands.

  In the 45-second, videotaped plea, first posted on a Facebook page set up by supporters of the 15-year-old, Justina is seen sitting in a chair and pleading plaintively with Massachusetts juvenile court Judge Joseph Johnston.

” All I really want is to be with my family and friends,” the girl says, her voice faltering at times. “You can do it. You’re the one that’s judging this. Please let me go home.”

  Justina also directs her plea to Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, whose state Department of Children and Families made the initial decision to commit the girl to state care on Valentine’s Day 2013 after doctors at Tufts Medical Center, which had been treating her for a rare condition, and doctors as Boston Children’s Hospital clashed over the cause of her medical problems, which included difficulty eating and walking.”

 

 

 

   Fox News has more on one of the most egregious examples of the State and the medical field running roughshod over individual rights . We should all be ashamed that we have allowed America come to this .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FDA Decision Puts Cheese Making In Peril

 

 

 

” Gabe Luddy, a fourth-generation cheese maker at Vella Cheese Co. in Sonoma, makes his dry Jack the same way his grandfather and great-grandfather did: He rolls and presses curds into large wheels of cheese, then brines the wheels before sliding them onto wooden racks. There they age, from seven months to several years.

  A U.S. Food and Drug Administration statement that became public last week puts Vella’s 83-year-old practice in peril.

  In what the agency called a clarification, the FDA declared that wooden racks similar to the one Vella uses “cannot be adequately cleaned and sanitized.” That, in effect, would make Luddy’s cheese impossible to sell.

  While the FDA late Tuesday issued a statement indicating there is room for compromise, if the original clarification holds, it may affect more than Sonoma Jack. The Parmesan you grate over your pasta might also be declared illegal.

  Producers all over the world age their cheeses on wood rather than on plastic or metal because its porous surface absorbs excess humidity and prevents unwanted mold. Plus, Luddy said, “It’s what gives our cheese its flavor.”

  Nora Weiser, executive director of the American Cheese Society, a professional organization of 1,500 cheese makers, estimates that 65 percent of the members of the organization – from farmstead producers with a few head of sheep to major cheddar factories – age their cheese on wood.”

 

 

   In the latest case of the State offering a solution to a non-existent problem , the FDA proposes a ban on wooden drying racks for cheese . Only in the world of Statism can a practice that has been around for centuries all of a sudden become a major threat to public health . Read more
