The federal government entices states to buy the scanners with homeland security grants. That’s to support the creation and maintenance of a national repository of driving histories.

Bathroom privacy has been an unquestioned right for who knows how long. But a proposed ordinance being considered in Charlotte, North Carolina could end that. Backers seem blissfully unaware of the resulting potential for sexual assault. According to experienced legal analysts, even church restrooms may no longer be safe.
If you’ve tested high for cholesterol, your doctor may have put you on a statin drug to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. But anecdotal evidence, as well as studies not part of the original research by Professor Rory Collins, are raising questions about possible side effects such as diabetes, cataracts and memory loss. So Collins — a department head at Oxford University — says additional work is needed to convince the public that statins are safe.
Justice Mary Hogg is only allowing palliative care. The mother of the 18 year-old British boy was requesting the continuation of chemotherapy. Lately, doctors say, he’s been going in and out of comas. They expect the boy to live about two more weeks. His mom, on the other hand, says her son still walks and talks. In a socialized medicine system — such as England has — there is a tendency for health workers to believe chronically ill persons are not worth treating.
It’s offensive to a drunk driver when he’s stopped by an officer. It hurts his self-esteem. There’s good news for such drivers cruising American’s southern borders. Barack Obama is telling Border Patrol agents to “allow them to go on their way.” It seems some agents felt it was their duty to enforce drunk driving laws when local police were not nearby. An official reason for the new policy is to avoid lawsuits. So now drunk drivers can avoid having their feelings hurt, while the rest of us can hurt all over or worse at the next bend in the road.
John Smith, an eighth grader from the St. Louis area, was under water for 15 minutes. Emergency room staff performed CPR for 27 minutes with no results. But according to Dr. Kent Sutterer, “That’s when his heart was jump-started by the power of the Holy Spirit, listening to the request of his praying mother.”
It’s no coincidence that the “media of record” constantly push Common Core, Climate Change and Sustainable Development. These concepts are presented as innovative solutions to our 21st century problems. But Patrick Wood connects the dots in “Technocracy Rising” and explains the hidden price of accepting these gifts from the intellectually elite.
