Justice Ginsburg Accused of Violating Judicial Code of Conduct

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg graduated from Columbia Law School in 1959, tied for first in her class. The 81 year-old justice has been serving on the US Supreme Court for over 20 years. So why did she reportedly “lend the prestige of her office to advance or appear to advance the private interests of others” while certain gay marriage cases are still pending? Associated Press reporter Brian Bakst covered her remarks the other day before a Minnesota audience, but you’d never suspect the issue involving the Code of Conduct from Bakst’s report.

Death of Man Fatally Shot by Cops After Reporting Vandalism Is “Justified”

Daniel Martin

Daniel Martin Called Lawton, Oklahoma Police to report vandals and told the dispatcher he would be carrying his gun in case of break-in. Officers Elijah Garcia and Anthony Edwards apparently did not get or understand the complete message. When they arrived, the 47 year-old veteran opened his front door, someone shouted “gun” and the officers fired. The shooting has been ruled “justified.”

Middle School Student Sent to the Office for Wearing Shirt Promoting Virginity

Chloe Rubiano

Chloe Rubiano calls her “Virginity Rocks” T-shirt one of her favorites. But it earned her a trip to the assistant principal’s office at Ramay Junior High in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where she was ordered to wear a gym shirt for the rest of the day. Officials were reportedly worried about the sexual content of Chloe’s garment. Their response makes you wonder about two things. Number one, how does the school follow this incident with a social studies lesson about the First Amendment? And number two, how does the staff teach sex education and remain less explicit than the shirt?

Miss America Quickly Removes Her Link to Planned Parenthood from the Internet

Kira Kazantsev

It’s only been a few days since Kira Kazantsev was crowned Miss America 2015, but already her reign is erupting with controversy. The 23 year-old woman has just taken down her “Linked In” page that advertised her internship with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s number one abortion provider. Kazantsev chose her platform in the pageant — “Love Shouldn’t Hurt” — to raise awareness of domestic violence. Apparently her stand against harming members of the family doesn’t extend to unborn children.

The War on Raw Milk Expands into Illinois

Raw Milk

The nine pages of regulations proposed by the Illinois Department of Public Health would not ban the sale of raw milk outright, but the rules could have nearly the same effect. Dairy farmer Donna O’Shaughnessy estimates the cost of compliance for her farm at around a third of a million dollars. Raw milk is prized for its health effects, which are compromised during typical industrial processing.
