Advocating Paleo = Practicing Nutrition Without a License (in NC)

http://www.carolinajournal.com

Steve Cooksey never thought he'd wind up in hot water with the North Carolina Board of Dietetics for merely running a blog documenting his personal successes in combating diabetes with a paleo diet, but now he's facing fines, loss of his domain name, and 120 days in jail. Why? Because he passed out business cards with his URL at a talk which advocated the diet that previously kept Cooksey dependent upon drugs—a talk given someone who had been licensed by the state.

Why the US Government Is Hated All Over the World

Something is wrong with the United States. I think most of us have noticed it. There is a mortal rot in the country, made manifest by many little rots that are hard to integrate mentally yet are, I think, somehow related. The change is grave, accelerating, probably irreversible, and fascinating. Things are not as they were.

Taxes Prompt More Americans to Renounce Citizenship

http://www.cnbc.com

Last year, almost 1,800 people followed Superman's lead, renouncing their U.S. citizenship or handing in their Green Cards. That's a record number since the Internal Revenue Service began publishing a list of those who renounced in 1998. It's also almost eight times more than the number of citizens who renounced in 2008, and more than the total for 2007, 2008 and 2009 combined.

Cop maces middle school kids for not going to class fast enough

http://www.cwarkansas.com

"Not knowing he was going to spray it I walked straight into it," Forney said.

Not only did she inhale it, but so did several other students. Three went to the hospital, and seventeen others left early.

"Everybody started hollering and we had people just gagging and throwing up and everything and I'm like what's going on?" Forney said.

Superintendent Jerry Payne confirmed a school resource officer did spray and said he did it to force students inside classrooms. Payne said the students took too long to get to class, so the officer pointed the spray toward the ground, not at students.

Teen Arrested for Distracting Officers in South Texas

A teenager is arrested for wanting to protect his family. A neglectful mother was reported for endangering her 2 year old. When police decided to remove this child, her son distracted the officers allowing the mother to escape. We're not given details of the 'distraction', but I guess it was only a plea to not loose his sibling. He is being held at $2500 and faced with allegations that could cost $10K & TEN years in prison! The real reason, it seems, that the mother escaped was because she was allowed to get items for the child in her house on her own.
