http://www.cracked.com

Pentagon: American taxpayer dollars at risk of fraud, waste, and abuse

http://www.theamericanconservative.com

The Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) released its final major audit over the weekend, delivering quite a bottom line: it cannot say how much U.S taxpayers lost while trying to rebuild Iraq, but it was a lot. The U.S. government Iraq relief and reconstruction program had serious internal control weaknesses that put billions of American taxpayer dollars at risk of fraud, waste, and abuse. The precise amount lost to fraud and waste may never be known, but SIGIR’s audits and investigations have demonstrated that the amount could be substantial.

California Man’s ‘Drug Holiday’ Becomes Four-Day Nightmare in Holding Cell
But for Mr. Chong, the celebration ended in a Kafkaesque nightmare inside a San Diego Drug Enforcement Administration holding cell, where he said he was forgotten for four days, without food or water.
To survive, Mr. Chong said he drank his own urine, hallucinated and, at one point, considered how to take his own life. By the time agents found him on the fifth day and called paramedics, he said he thought he could be dead within five minutes.

Who declares a law unconstitutional?

http://en.wikipedia.org

"The United States Constitution does not explicitly establish the power of judicial review. Rather, the power of judicial review has been inferred from the structure, provisions, and history of the Constitution."

Who is suppose to save us from the partisan politics of today? Anyone true to the constitution can't just add meaning to it.

"Like any other state, there has to be compliance with this and any other federal law," Santorum said. "And that is that English has to be the principal language."

Public school education: "Make out with Mom day"

http://www.datelinezero.com

Wrong on several levels, it is humiliating, and it was organized by Rosemount High School administrators. And, yes, it took place in view of the children at the school, because it was during an assembly. The students were blindfolded, and then told that “someone” was going to kiss them. The “someone” was their own parents.
What is it with public (read: GOVERNMENT) schools lately? Are they trying to screw up our kids?
