Why the United States Might Never Leave Afghanistan

http://www.cato-at-liberty.org

In autumn 2001, America’s initial purpose in Afghanistan—which made perfect sense—was to destroy or incapacitate al Qaeda and punish the Taliban government that hosted it. This was accomplished 11 years ago. Today, the purpose of the U.S. mission is ill-defined, but clearly involves nation building. What the coalition desperately needs is an achievable, realistic endgame, not an indefinite timeline that commits thousands of U.S. troops to Afghanistan until or beyond 2024.

Piers Morgan is Shot Down on Gun Control

http://www.politicalpwnage.com

In response to the recent tragedy of the NFL star shooting his girlfriend and then himself, Morgan quickly stands upon his internet soapbox to the tell world that the 2nd Amendment is “for muskets”. Yet, before the smoke of his apparently incendiary comment clears, his logic is taken to task behind the shed and blown away.

Bathroom "Pay" System at Elem School Causes 7 Year Old to Pee in Pants

http://www.nydailynews.com

A Texas mother says she’s outraged after learning that her 7-year-old son’s teacher makes students “pay” to use the bathroom. "I was absolutely appalled," Sonja Cross told NBC 5. "I could not believe it." The J.O. Davis Elementary teacher requires students to pay for trips to the toilet with “Boyd Bucks,” fake money the first-year instructor uses to reward the children for good behavior. Cross said she found out about the unusual system after her son wet his pants during school because he didn’t have enough “Boyd Bucks” for a bathroom run.

Pot legalization no free ride to smoke up on college campuses

http://www.nydailynews.com

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Young voters helped pass laws legalizing marijuana in Washington and Colorado, but many still won't be able to light up. Most universities have codes of conduct banning marijuana use, and they get millions of dollars in funding from the federal government, which still considers pot illegal. With the money comes a requirement for a drug-free campus, and the threat of expulsion for students using pot in the dorms.

Mandatory Minimums Forced Me to Send 1,000+ Nonviolent People to Jail

http://ecigs.net

I recently sentenced a group of more than twenty defendants on meth trafficking conspiracy charges. All of them pled guilty. Eighteen were ‘pill smurfers,’ as federal prosecutors put it, meaning their role amounted to regularly buying and delivering cold medicine to meth cookers in exchange for very small, low-grade quantities to feed their severe addictions. Most were unemployed or underemployed. Several were single mothers. They did not sell or directly distribute meth; there were no hoards of cash, guns or countersurveillance equipment.

Is Medical Marijuana Safe for Children?

http://healthland.time.com

Like some cancer patients in states where it’s allowed, Mykayla Comstock uses cannabis as part of her treatment. Comstock is seven-years old. Her mother, a long time advocate for medical use of the illegal drug, has been giving her a gram of oral cannabis oil every day. Despite the fact that medical marijuana is legal in Oregon, where Comstock lives, the idea of giving it to a child still gives pause to many adults who associate the drug with recreational use that breaks the law.

http://ecigs.net

Celebrated astronomer Carl Sagan also was said to have been involved with the secret project, which reportedly was known as "A Study of Lunar Research Flights" or "Project A119." In an excerpt from the study reads, "Nuclear detonations in the vicinity of the moon are considered in this report along with scientific information which might be obtained from such explosions.

The Role of Government

http://www.nv-nc.com

Over the past many decades, the federal government’s own internal debate on its responsibility has changed in a subtle but very important way. Before the change, the federal government would act in the marketplace when people believed that everybody had a right to something. Now it intervenes even when it does not believe something should be guaranteed.

http://www.timesunion.com

A teacher in the southern Idaho town of Declo is being criticized after she had her fourth-grade students use permanent markers to draw on the faces of children who failed to meet reading goals. Some parents and Cassia County School District leaders say the punishment given to nine students in Summer Larsen's class was inappropriate and left the children feeling shamed.

Student expelled for refusing to wear RFID tracking chip badge

http://www.zdnet.com

Under the "Smart ID" program, ID badges have been issued with a tracking chip, which students must wear when attending school. The school badges, worn like a necklace, contain a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip and links to their social security number. This allows the school to track the student's location after leaving campus and for as long as the badge is on the student's person.

Gun range allows customers to shoot at each other

http://www.clickorlando.com

It's a place where people can take their gun and shoot at people -- and they shoot back. There are, however, important rules of engagement that the owner says makes his gun range perfectly safe. The place is called Combat City. Before you step foot inside the range, customers meet with owner Dave Kaplan. “First thing, when you get here, everybody's checked. No guns, knives, ammunition on them,” said Kaplan. He then modifies the customer's weapon, replacing the barrel so a live round will not fire but will still function as a regular weapon, shooting a soft rubber bullet instead.

Court rules HOA cannot detain speeders on private streets

http://www.jdsupra.com

The defendant HOA is governed by a board of directors. Prior to the events at issue, the board had established a security department for the development, bought vehicles for the department, fitted the vehicles with oscillating and flashing lights, radar units and audio/video recording equipment. The board adopted a speed limit of 25 mph for all the association's roads. Since violation of the Association's rules is not an "offense" justifying restraint, the plaintiff was entitled to summary judgment on his claim for false imprisonment.

Odd-Even Gas Rationing System Coming To New York City, Long Island

http://newyork.cbslocal.com

What happens if you disobey? "Those with license plates ending in an odd number will be able to buy gas on odd numbered days. Those with license plates ending in an even number will be able to buy gas on even numbered days."

Maybe if they allowed "price gouging," there wouldn't be shortages...
