A new state law has made it tougher for people who drive under the influence of drugs in New Hampshire. The law, which went into effect Jan. 1, has made driving impaired due to over-the-counter and prescription drugs illegal. “There was a loophole in the language which did not include many drugs which impair you to drive,” said State Police Sgt. Matthew Shapiro, commander of the drug recognition program. “People could be 10 times more impaired and not be prosecuted.”Read more »
According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders committed with a rifle. And there are no explicit provisions in the Bill of Rights / U.S. Constitution protecting hammers and clubs...Read more »
Earlier today, the American Civil Liberties Union filed suit against New Hampshire’s School Choice Scholarship Act of 2012, which offers tax credits worth 85% of corporate donations to registered, non-profit scholarship organizations that fund low- and middle-income students attending non-public or home schools. The ACLU argues that since parents can use the scholarships at religious schools, the law violates two provisions of New Hampshire’s constitution: the historically anti-Catholic “Blaine Amendment” and the “compelled support” clause.Read more »

This is familiar behavior from Jones. It’s why we love him. He’s a like a bulldog. But Morgan’s behavior was suspiciously out of character.
Piers Morgan is loudmouthed blow hard who can hold his own against someone raising their voice. I’ve seen him interview Jesse Ventura, and Ted Nugent about gun control and he meets their volume. Those guys aren’t much softer than Jones. In fact, when Morgan debated Larry Pratt on gun control, he shouts Pratt down.
But against Jones he’s utterly calm. He doesn’t interrupt. He doesn’t raise his voice. Why the change? Well I have a theory.Read more »
The series of events started after a patient at the hospital left without permission in mid December. Police were called to help locate the patient and several days later, a man with the same description of the escapee was brought back to Graylands by police where he was wrongly identified by hospital staff as the runaway patient. The man was subsequently given a batch of antipsychotic drugs but it caused an adverse reaction and he was treated overnight in hospital. The “real” missing patient eventually returned to Graylands.Read more »
A University of Kentucky police officer has been fired for inappropriate contact with a student after entering the student's dorm room. University policy allows a police officer to enter a room if he believes there is suspicious or illegal activity; however, the firing was based on inappropriate contact and had nothing to do with the officer's entry into the dorm room.Read more »
The Air Force has enlisted the help of ESPN in order to go through and perform a thorough analysis on the copious amounts of video footage recorded from drone missions. Considering how the total number of UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) there are scouring the world, with a ton of footage being transmitted back to base in real-time, the Air Force has an unenviable task of poring over the data.
ESPN’s role would see them fall back on their expertise in sorting through the large amounts of game footage every single day.Read more »

The kids in this volcano-rim village wear filthy, ragged clothes. They sleep beside cows and sheep in huts made of sticks and mud. They don't go to school. Yet they all can chant the English alphabet, and some can spell words. The key to their success: 20 tablet computers dropped off in their Ethiopian village in February by a group called One Laptop Per Child.Read more »
A nice summary of many of the arguments against the "Drug" war. Link at the bottom to the actual WSJ piece. Nice to see the corporate media putting this stuff out to the masses.Read more »
Very similar to the "if a little girl trespasses and picks a flower on the front yard of the 'crazy gun nut' who has 'No Trespassing' signs posted and he shoots and kills her" thought experiment.Read more »
