Jamilla Phillips says the decoration in a front yard in Edmond, Oklahoma, is offensive and lacks ‘respect.’
This influx of cash will raise the CDC budget to $6.9 billion, which is $567 million more than it received in 2013. This is more than the agency anticipated, because the president’s fiscal year 2014 budget request for it was just $6.6 billion — a decrease of $270 million from fiscal 2012.
By now I assume you have heard about, if not seen, the most disgusting political ad of the 2014 midterm cycle. If you haven’t, let me explain. With the news of Ebola outbreaks in West Africa, and the first case of Ebola transmission in the United States, a merry band of left wing progressives decided to seize upon the fears of the nation and promptly blame the Republican Party and the vision of limited government for the spread of Ebola.
Well, I guess there is one thing you can say about liberals. They are consistent in their agenda, working at every turn to achieve what they want. That consistency also requires them to lie to the American people, which they are more than a little adept at. The latest of these lies has to do with the reason an Ebola vaccine is not available. The fact that I am not surprised that they are blaming it on the Republican Party and their efforts to cut spending speaks volumes. The only thing that does surprise me is that they haven’t tried to blame it on George W. bush. But, I suspect that is coming in a few days.

Now Craig, the chief of police in Detroit, Mich., has a message for the law-abiding folks in his crime-ridden city: Arm yourselves, and criminals will think twice about attacking you.
Tasha Boone, Assistant Division Chief for the American Community Survey, made her points on October 9 to the National Advisory Committee on Racial, Ethnic, and Other Populations, one of several Census Advisory Committees. That “perceptions of ‘irrelevant’ and ‘unnecessary’ questions raise concerns about privacy” and that “distrust of government is pervasive” were among several hurdles she noted to gathering information from the public.
In August, a troop of Turlock, California, Girl Scouts asked the city council to consider a ban on smoking in public parks. Months of sporadic—and occasionally heated—debate followed. The Scouts said they were seeking the ban, in part, to reduce childrens’ exposure to secondhand smoke, though the girls also asked that e-cigarettes and smokeless tobacco be included in the ban.
For the second straight year, youth and adult membership in the Girl Scouts has sharply dropped.
When it comes to Wi-Fi technology, it’s a tale of two speeds: the theoretical and the actual. Thanks to real-world elements like walls and household appliances, the maximum network bandwidth you see on a router’s box are never achieved – until now, if Samsung is to be believed. The technology giant claims to have developed a 60 GHz Wi-Fi technology that will bridge the gap between theoretical and actual Wi-Fi speeds.
