Another teen needlessly murdered in cold blood by a "responsible gun owner". The 13 year old's crime to justify death? He laughed at his assailant. Welcome to the America that the right, NRA and ignorant gun nuts hold so dear. 

Yesterday the news was a flutter with details of the leaked autopsy report the grand jury is using to investigate the shooting death of Michael Brown. Now the DOJ has condemned that move as trying to sway the public. They also cited the release of the video of Brown's alteration with a store owner just minutes before the shooting as part of this campaign. A few weeks ago we heard reports that someone on the grand jury was talking, and with this new information, it's starting to make me wonder if that isn't the case. If it's not the jury, then it is someone on the prosecution's team, since they are the only ones in the court room. Either way, it's time to pull that grand jury and call in a special prosecutor so that we can get the truth. 

No I'm not talking about a threat of an outbreak, but rather just how reactionary we are as a nation. We have people freaking out, listening to the talking heads and politicians, instead of the medical professionals. Apparently all the doctors saying an outbreak basically won't happen here, are in some type of collusion to misinform the people so that Obama can kill of America. Then, in the next breath, they have a hissy-fit because Obama's Ebola Czar isn't a doctor. It's really mind boggling just how dumb and cowardly America has become.

With More Cases Of Ebola, It's Time To Talk Sick Days

Many want us to think that mandated paid sick days would be some sort of socialism, however we can now easily see that it is more a matter of public health.

Early this morning Texas officials released a statement that a healthcare worker at the hospital Thomas Eric Duncan was a patient has tested positive for Ebola. There isn't many details yet, meaning none really. Things I am interested in finding out include this person's actual job capacity, when this person was treating Duncan (was it after his diagnosis and quarantine, or before), and exactly how this person contracted it, given the fact that Ebola can only be caught through direct contact with bodily fluid and must have an entry point, such as a cut, mouth, eyes, etc. 

Ebola And Rick Perry's 3am Call

With the passing of Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, the focus must now turned on the horribly failed response of the Texas healthcare system.

One of the NRA's favorite talking points is "well if they had a gun too". It's a way to urge more Americans to go out and buy guns, as that will some how make them safer. Well that was tried and tested by William Coleman III of Oregon. He was out, open and carrying his gun, when an armed robber came up and told him "I like your gun, now give it to me". William complied and was left open and not carrying

The Supreme Court declined to hear the appeals of same-sex marriage bans that have been previously overturned by the lower courts, essentially making gay marriage the law of the land in this country. Of course this doesn't set things in stone. Another case could uphold the ban and the Supreme Court could then decide to hear that case and rule for the ban, reversing what was done today. Seems like a lot of games to play with the lives of people that just want to get married, and also seems like a cowardly way out for the nation's highest court.

Facebook Promotes The Capture And Removal Of President Obama

A man known to make threats against the President has a new group on Facebook and Facebook thinks it is fine and dandy

There was just a shooting at a high school in Louisville, Kentucky, which left one student hospitalized and an active search on for the shooter. This follows a high school shooting in North Carolina earlier, which also left a student hospitalized and the shooter in custody. When is America going to care about the future generations and take action to stop these? They say more guns is the answer, but we have a record number of guns in this country now, and a climbing rate of these shootings. That theory has fallen flat, so it's time for new action. 

The FCC voted unanimously this morning to drop the NFL blackout rule, which dictated attendance levels at a home game in order for it to be televised. This doesn't mean it's the end of blackouts, as the greedy team owners and networks could still try to impose them, but it is a step closer. I always viewed these as one of the biggest scams out there. Most stadiums are paid for by tax dollars, to host a team that plays for a non-profit organization. If there was ever a picture perfect excuse of moochers, then you need to look no further than the National Football League.

This weekend a cop was shot in the arm while investigating a possible break-in near Ferguson. Of course this quickly evolved into the "violent protestors" from many on the right, despite this incident having nothing to do with it. But what's really troubling is the police accounts. Last night they reported that no burglary was taking place and that the officer shot did have a body cam, but it wasn't turned on. Police officials are saying they have no idea why the officer turned it off, making you wonder what kind of investigating they are doing down there.
