This is our 4th attempt at publishing a photoshop and while I’m thoroughly enjoying the creative process , and for the most part the end products , I could use some guidance on how to blend my work together to look of a piece . As delightful of an image as the above PS is , it is painfully obvious that Hill has been added in . I tried many adjustments but could not get the large mass of her coat to blend into the existing background . Any suggestions on how to blend two photos would be much appreciated .

Good News For Sgt. Tahmooressi! This Surveillance Video Could Lead To His Release

 

 

 

” Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi is an innocent Marine who took took a wrong turn and accidentally crossed the Mexican border with guns in his car. There is no excuse for President Obama refusing to pick up the phone and demanding that Mexican authorities release him, immediately, which is why there have been numerous campaigns (see here and here) to urge Obama to do the right thing.

  After sitting in a filthy Mexican prison for SIX MONTHS and suffering from health issues, we finally have solid video evidence which completely backs up Tahmooressi’s version of the story. “

Still Locking People Up For Being Poor? Really?! It’s 2014

 

 

 

” Debtors’ prisons sound like ancient history, right? Unfortunately, they’re all too common across the United States. In spite of the Constitution, case law, and common sense, low-income people are routinely jailed in places as far-flung as Georgia and Washington State simply because they cannot afford to pay their court fines.

  Let’s define court fines, because it’s kind of shocking. “Court fines” could be as little as a couple hundred bucks because someone was pulled over while driving with an expired license. If you’ve just been laid off and have kids to feed, it might be hard to find a couple hundred extra bucks in your budget. Well, that can send you to lock up.

  Not only does it cost the community quite a bit to jail someone (usually way in excess of the fine), but locking people up can trap them in the vicious cycle of poverty, debt, and incarceration that typifies the modern day debtors’ prison. Individuals incarcerated because they can’t pay minor court fines have lost their jobs, been evicted from their housing, suffered serious declines in their health, and faced family crises.

  Not only are debtors’ prisons wildly bad public policy, they are unconstitutional. And yet thousands of people are still beaten down by the justice system simply because they cannot pay their fines.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ohio Poll Worker Sentenced To Five Years For Vote Fraud … Voted As Many As Six Times

image

” Even some supporters of voter ID laws, like the Ohio Secretary of State, admit voting fraud is rare. But it happens.

From the AP:

A former Ohio poll worker on Wednesday was sentenced to five years in prison for voting illegally on behalf of other people, including a comatose relative.

Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman handed down the sentence to Melowese Richardson, 58, of Madisonville, two months after she pleaded no contest to four counts of illegal voting and subsequently was found guilty.”

Every Single Bit Of Gun Advice Biden Gives Will Get You Arrested

 

 

 

 

Via US News & World Report, which is admirably covering the “things Biden says that will get you thrown in jail” beat:

Vice President Joe Biden told Field & Stream magazine in an interview published Monday, “[if] you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.”

Coincidentally, a 22-year-old man in Virginia Beach, Va., was charged Monday with reckless handling of a firearm after doing just that a couple days earlier.

Local TV station WAVY 10 reports that the man observed two masked men leaning into his bedroom window. The men allegedly had weapons and told him to close his bedroom door. He stepped outside of his bedroom and did as instructed, then fired his shotgun through the closed door and then several more times at the window.

The only person who should ever take Biden’s gun advice is David Gregory, who is of course exempt from gun laws because he has very important points to make.

 

And, when it comes to gun laws for thee but not for me, you can’t beat this attack of hypocrisy combined with cronyism. Hypocrony? Guess who’s exempt from New York’s new high-capacity magazine ban?

 

Just a month after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the strictest gun control law in the country, state officials plan to make some exemptions.

The law toughened restrictions on military-style rifles and high-capacity semiautomatic handguns, but those restrictions will be changed so those types of weapons can be used on the sets of television shows and movies being shot in New York.”

Ex-SEIU Local Exec Convicted Of Stealing From Low-Income Members

 

 

 

“This was a case about abuse and betrayal,” U.S. Atty. André Birotte Jr. said in a statement after the verdict. “Freeman abused his position as leader of the SEIU, and he betrayed the hardworking people whose interests he was supposed to represent.”

Freeman, 43, faces a maximum of more than 180 years in prison when he returns to court for sentencing in April. His attorneys declined to comment.

Monday’s verdict marks the end of a steep fall from grace for a man groomed for a major role in the SEIU, the 2-million-member labor juggernaut that is a dominant force in worker organizing campaigns and Democratic elections from coast to coast.”

‘Rosa Parks’ of the Dollar

  ” A “speedy trial” is one of the rights the Constitution requires the government to provide to defendants in criminal cases, but it’s silent on whether the sentencing also needs to be speedy. We were put in mind of this fact by Alan Feuer’s profile in this morning’s New York Times in respect of Bernard Von Nothaus. He was convicted more than a year and a half ago of “counterfeiting,” because he issued silver coins, which he called “Liberty dollars,” and sold them at a price much lower than they would command in United States currency. He could face the rest of his life in prison, but the court seems to be in no rush to sentence him. In the year and a half since the verdict was brought in against him, he’s been living in a friend’s house at Malibu, awaiting word of his fate.

The case throws into sharp relief an astonishing irony —that a man who issued money that has sharply appreciated in value is facing the rest of his life in prison while the officials who issue the official Federal Reserve Notes, the value of which has in four years plunged in half, to less than a 1,750th of an ounce of gold, are walking around free. We do not mean to suggest that Chairman Bernanke and his colleagues have committed a crime. We do mean to suggest that it’s a context that makes the verdict against Bernard Von NotHaus seem absurd. We’d like to think that the federal judge in the case, who is a sage jurist, understands all this and is trying to come up with a solomonic solution. “

“Crimes were unequivocally committed and I will do whatever I can to continue to do the government’s job for it and help see justice done.”

  “MF Global had a choice. Do we cheat or go out of business. And they cheated. They broke the law. And these took these customer funds to cover margin calls.”

“Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is the biggest enabler of financial crime in U.S. history.” “

  More government abuse for collecting rain water .

” A rural Oregon man was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in jail and over $1,500 in fines because he had three reservoirs on his property to collect and use rainwater.”

Unfathomable

RE-ELECT NO ONE !

 ” The federal government faces unfunded liabilities totalling $84 trillion, with more than $30.3 trillion owed to public debt holders, federal employees and current retirees in the form of Social Security and Medicaid benefits, according to a recent report by the nonpartisan National Center for Policy Analysis.

“Overall, the fiscal imbalance is equal to 5.7 percent of the present value of all future GDP, which translates into about 31 percent of the long run federal revenue estimate,” the report states. “Thus federal revenues would have to rise immediately and permanently to 24.1 percent of GDP to cover the fiscal imbalance.” “

 

We here at YouViewed are speechless .

  Does anybody see anything wrong with this ? I’d call it attempted indoctrination . Is it any wonder the bulk of the ” stimulus” was directed towards the unions , teachers and progressive cronies ?
   Is it any wonder it did no good ? You can’t stimulate growth by giving it all to the non-producing classes .

” Last Monday, a high school student in North Carolina engaged his social studies teacher in a heated debate about politics and the two leading presidential candidates. During the exchange, the teacher (an obvious Obama supporter) got very angry with the student and accused him of disrespecting the president. She even went so far as to tell the boy that he could be jailed for speaking ill of Obama.”
