We need a million man march in Peoria. Demand the removal of the Mayor, All three Judges, and PoliceRead More chief.

It probably took 3 judges to get them to grant the warrants they were looking for. And the AttorneyRead More Registration and Disciplinary Commission (ARDC) is the "bar" you are looking for. You will find specific rules there and though anyone can lodge complaints, and all complaints are heard, the accused members of the bar have a right to defend themselves and their actions. The attorney for the arrested kid can file for sanctions, too, and move to suppress the information obtained by the warrant if it is judged to have been granted erroneously.

Here you go: On March 14, Judge Kirk Schoebein signed off on a warrant seeking subscriberRead More information from Twitter. On March 29, two days after Twitter gave police the information they requested, Judge Lisa Wilson approved a warrant for Comcast to find out where the person who used the Internet to access Twitter lived. On April 1, Elliott was identified as the Comcast subscriber for 1220 N. University St., the affidavit said. Two weeks later, Judge Kim Kelley approved the warrant to search the house. Police seized several iPhones, two Xbox video game consoles, computers, pieces of mail, drug paraphernalia, alleged marijuana and digital memory cards.

Lets see how obscure I can make this.:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: I spend a lot of timeRead More traveling the Greater Milwaukee area, going in and out of communities. Every one seems to have at least one small shopping strip that at one time was a bustling center of local commerce. In its heyday, it housed small, locally and family owned businesses that thrived due to local loyalty and, perhaps, a small local restaurant that functioned as a meeting place for the locals. Maybe a drug store and a small laundromat - a hairdresser, or kid's clothing store - locally owned shoe store - an insurance agent, maybe. Gradually, due to changes in management and ownership of the small strip and all that can bring (less concern about upkeep, keeping tenants happy, etc) some or all of the familiar local venues began to shut down or move away from the small strip. In the place of the restaurants and other stores that locals tend to gather at are chain check cashing places, seasonal tax prep services, fly-by-night cell phone operations and too many empty storefronts. All the kind of stuff one might find in such locations that were once a destination and now a place of last resort, just prior to it being abandoned altogether, declared blighted and demolished. A sort of stage 3 terminal community cancer. This is Patch.

BTW, the OMB, under this administration, is primarily a source of partisan spin. Anyone who wouldRead More think they're providing useful information by reposting the conclusions of this organization is either patently clueless or being purposely disingenuous.

Because it's not really "free"? Because the more people who sign up for theRead More "free" versions, the less money they have coming in to support the program? Because the less money they have coming in that way, the more they'll have to get another way, i.e., taxation? Which means they'll cut back on the subsidies and not only will the "free" Obamacare no longer be "free", but all the other subsidized Obamacares will cost more as well. That's why no one who's involved in trying to make this mess work like they said it was going to is talking about it.

Yep, it's Free.... <sigh> <slack-jawed>

Here is a novel concept. Except for the 1st disgraceful budget passed by the party in power , not 1Read More other has been passed and sent to the President by both houses. The President submitted budgets, late as he is for everything, that got voted down by every single person that voted. The House has passed multiple budgets that arent even brought up for a vote in the Senate by Reid. The 1st and only budget passed by this administration increased spending for every wish list the Democrats have, why would they want to ever write, vote on or pass another one if they can just do another CR based on the "emergency" spending base line achieved when power got passed to Obama? They will do anything to keep the money flowing , anything. They are addicts and dont care about the consequences of their actions. They havent been held accountable yet, why should the be scared with almost every media outlet being the enabler? The fifth estate has become the fifth column. Wake up ! The Constitution is toilet paper to these people and this country was founded by people who died for it.

Sites like Silk Road and the many other dark net sites that are springing up to replace it are justRead More another demonstration of why the "War on Drugs" is an abject failure and will never be won. This is true despite our government administration's insistence to continue spending wasted billions on it. Considering the growing ease with which drugs (both legal and illegal) can be obtained, I agree with the author that it is very important to talk to your kids about drugs early and often and monitor them for behavioral changes.

Modern-day Americans have been enduring what many regard as acts of tyranny and have begun to regardRead More the President as not merely incompetent, but bent on a course of action to destroy the nation. ObamaCare was signed into law amid protest from millions it was imposed solely by the Democratic Party when it controlled both houses of Congress. This is the stuff of revolution.
