House votes to expand national DNA arrest database

http://news.cnet.com

Millions of Americans arrested for but not convicted of crimes will likely have their DNA forcibly extracted and added to a national database, according to a bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday.

By a 357 to 32 vote, the House approved legislation that will pay state governments to require DNA samples, which could mean drawing blood with a needle, from adults "arrested for" certain serious crimes. Not one Democrat voted against the database measure, which would hand out about $75 million to states that agree to make such testing mandatory.

The pledge of allegiance and the religion of the State

http://www.examiner.com

An appellate court has rejected arguments that the pledge of allegiance violates the wall of separation between church and state. Judge Bea said schools do not require students to recite the pledge. When I was 10 I was given detention for asking what the words actually meant and refusing to stand until I understood. Even without this phrase "under God" the pledge is designed to inculcate the most nefarious form of idolatry, the worship of an omnipotent, omniscient omnibenevolent government.

Pregnant woman imprisoned because she might hurt her unborn baby

http://apnews.myway.com

Samantha Burton wanted to leave the hospital.
Her doctor strongly disagreed, enough to go to court to keep her
there.

She smoked cigarettes during the first six months of her pregnancy and
was admitted on a false alarm of premature labor. Her doctor argued
she was risking a miscarriage if she didn't quit smoking immediately
and stay on bed rest in the hospital, and a judge agreed.

Imprisoned because one smokes. What's next?
