New (over) regulation requires license for "breedable" pets

http://www.washingtontimes.com

New regulations from Department of Agriculture require that Americans that own four or more “breedable” female pets that are at least four months old must obtain a federal license and be subject to federal inspections, regardless of whether or not the owner is planning on breeding any of their pets. Animal rescue shelters fear that they may also suffer, as penalties could amount to $10,000 per day per animal.

Endless War and the "Military-Industrial-Political Complex"

http://newsjunkiepost.com

The endless war: the “war on terror” without any geographic boundaries, time frame or even the necessity to have a well defined enemy. The blood thirsty machine that is the US industrial-military complex makes billion at all three phases of the war industry process: the manufacturing of ever more lethal and complex weapon systems, the destruction stage, and then finally the occupation and rebuilding phase in countries such as Germany, Japan, Korea, and more recently Iraq and Afghanistan. This war machine and its political associates always needs new conflicts.

GOP Corrupt at Highest Levels - Romney Becomes GOP Candidate by Fiat

http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com

Delegates from Nevada tried to nominate Mr. Paul from the floor, submitting petitions from their own state as well as Minnesota, Maine, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. That should have done the trick: Rules require signatures from just five states. But the party changed the rules on the spot. Henceforth, delegates must gather petitions from eight states.

Why is the GOP Establishment so Scared of a Ron Paul Nomination?

Why is the GOP Establishment so scared of a Ron Paul nomination? Romney has it in the bag, Dr. Paul doesn't have a hope in hell. The conventional wisdom is they want to present the party 100% behind Romney. Gee, would acknowledging there was some competition for the job be that damaging? By sabotaging the Paul campaign throughout the process they exposed themselves as corrupt. If they played by the GOP rules with Ron Paul, there would be a minor contest, Romney would still have won, and most of the the Republican rank and file would fall in behind Romney.

RNC Pulling Out All Stops To Keep Ron Paul's Name Out Of Nomination

http://www.youtube.com

"RNC is attempting to change the 5 state rule and de-credential the entire Maine delegation only 4 days before the Republican National Convention." After watching the fraud, coercion, and duplicity on the part of the GOP establishment this year, I have to wonder "why don't they just throw out their rule book and make Romney the candidate by decree?"

The Diabolical Voting Game and How You Should Play It

http://www.freedomsphoenix.com

The fact that your vote will not change the results actually is a great plus for you! Now you can simply vote your conscience and not have to worry about your "vote being wasted". Voting for someone or some issue that you don't really believe in is really unethical. For most people, to do so is upsetting and shameful. So, don't bother. Number 1, do your duty and vote and number 2, vote your conscience. I think you will feel a whole lot better about it.

http://www.cracked.com

We really don't get enough stories about incompetent soldiers. Think about it: It's a real disservice to war heroes if we never give people anything to compare them to. The very reason bravery and quick wits under fire are to be celebrated is because they're rare.

So let's take a moment to celebrate some of the hilariously stupid shit that goes on in the name of war.
