Al-Qaeda Working On Pet Bombs


No, that’s not like a Pet Rock, that’s a bomb surgically implanted in an innocent doggie or kitty.

At the age of only 30, the al Qaeda bombmaker behind the foiled plot on U.S-bound planes has emerged as the most feared face of terror for American authorities, a master technician with a fierce hatred for America and ingenious plans for hiding hard-to-detect bombs inside cameras, computers and even household pets.

324,000 Women Left Labor Force In The Last Two Months


If I was a lefty, and the President was a Republican, I’d accuse him of waging a “war on working women,” but I’m not, and he’s not, so I won’t.

324,000 women dropped out of the nation’s civilian labor force in March and April as the number of women not in the labor force hit an all-time historical high of 53,321,000, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

House Strips DOJ Funding For Immigration Lawsuits Against States


That’s one way of standing up for states’ rights:

The House voted early Wednesday morning to stop the Obama administration’s lawsuits against state immigration laws.

The amendment, which strips funding so that the Justice Department cannot pursue the lawsuits, passed 238-173. Twelve Democrats voted for it, while six Republicans voted against it.

The amendment specifically applies to laws in Arizona, Oklahoma, Missouri, Utah, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Indiana. The Obama administration and immigrant-rights groups have sued to block laws in each of those states.

Massachusetts House Passes Bill Overturning Bake Sale Ban


A couple of days ago, I posted a story about Massachusetts schools banning bake sales. Apparently, State Representatives of both parties thought this was worth undoing:

“That is the stupidest thing I’ve seen in my career,” state Rep. Cory Atkins (D-Concord), moments after the House unanimously voted to ease the statewide cupcake crackdown. “Talk about hitting the nerve of government reaching far into people’s lives.”

State Rep. Brad Hill (R-Ipswich) offered the amendment, which leaves it up to local school committees whether to adopt the Department of Public Health rules, after hearing about an Ipswich school arts group that would have had to cancel bake-sale field trip fundraisers and fielding complaints from the local football Boosters concerned about their concession stands.

“I was outraged,” said Hill. “This is not what government was set up to do. Then when I started hearing from the groups and how this would affect different fundraising activities, it upset me even more.”

Over Twelve Million Reasons The Tea Party Is Not Going Away


Sorry, lefties, the Tea Parties are well-funded enough to stick around for a good long time:

The Woodstock, Ga.-based Tea Party Patriots reported raising  $12.2 million for the year ended May 31, 2011. That vaults them into the ranks of some of the most successful conservative activist groups, including FreedomWorks, the Club for Growth and Americans for Tax Reform.

SEIU Renting DC Offices For Occupy Movement


Obama’s favorite union is apparently really buddy-buddy with the Occupiers:

A labor union with strong ties to President Obama is helping make the Occupy Wall Street movement a more permanent fixture in the nation’s capital, moving Occupy DC into office space the group can use to organize and grow through the presidential election.

The Service Employees International Union, one of Obama’s most vocal supporters among labor groups, is paying $4,000 a month for three offices the Occupy protesters will use for at least the next six months to plan future demonstrations, organize and host workshops.

North Carolina voters approved a constitutional amendment on Tuesday defining marriage solely as a union between a man and a woman, making it the 30th state to adopt such a ban.
