1. Conn. firearms maker leaving due to gun law : “PTR Industries is leaving Connecticut for the gun-friendly state of South Carolina to avoid the tough gun-control law passed after the Newtown shooting.”

2. 20 Signs That The Pharmaceutical Companies Are Running A 280 Billion Dollar Money Making Scam : “If you could make more money than you ever dreamed possible by turning the American people into the most doped up people in the history of the planet, would you do it? In America today, the number of people hooked on legal drugs absolutely dwarfs the number of people hooked on illegal drugs.”

3. A ‘resort’ for the end of the world? Developer says Kansas caverns could preserve human race : “After most of the world’s population is wiped off the map by a wayward meteorite or hail of nuclear missiles, the survival of the human race might just depend on a few thousand people huddled in recreational vehicles deep in the bowels of an eastern Kansas mine.”

4. New MERS virus spreads easily, deadlier than SARS : “A mysterious new respiratory virus that originated in the Middle East spreads easily between people and appears more deadly than SARS, doctors reported Wednesday after investigating the biggest outbreak in Saudi Arabia.”

5. The 14-year-old kid arrested over his pro-NRA shirt now faces a year in jail : “The West Virginia eighth-grader who was suspended and arrested in late April after he refused to remove a t-shirt supporting the National Rifle Association appeared in court this week and was formally charged with obstructing an officer.”

6. World Health Organisation calls emergency meeting to respond to SARS-like outbreak : “Health experts have started an emergency international meeting to devise ways of combating a mysterious virus that has been described as the single biggest worldwide public health threat.”

7. Are businesses bracing for U.S. to fall like Rome? “Economically, our growth has become stagnant. Our national debt has skyrocketed to some $17 trillion, standing taller than our 2012 GDP of $15.68 trillion. In practical terms, if everyone worked the entire year and gave everything that every company, man, woman, and child produced, we still wouldn’t have enough money to pay off all of our debts.”

I doubt that the 14 year old kid will get jail time. That is a big charge to levy against a boy with no record of violence.Sounds like a scare tactic. Gun commies are using to scare a kid.

If memory serves, PTR started in California. I’m glad to see that a number of major businesses, are telling their respective State governments with they think of their liberal/progressive anti-business legislation. Good for them (and us)!

Ummmm wouldn’t that be in violation of the first amendment. Wouldn’t the slogan on the shirt also be protected by freedom of speech? It also shows how low those that are supposed to protect us are willing to stoop. Nothing but a bunch of &%$(*@% thugs!

The Supreme Court has ruled that minors, especially in schools, have fewer rights than adults.

It sounds like the major charge is obstructing the poor long suffering police officer: the kid apparently wouldn’t shut up, and that “obstructed the officer from doing his job.”

Stupid response to his wearing the shirt, sub-optimal response by the kid, more stupid responses by the cops and prosecutors.

Maybe the kid and ‘society’ will get lucky and the jury will tell the idiots who doubled down on stupid to go jump in the lake.

The problem is no lawyer would let this kid go to court because it would be a crapshoot. So instead the kid will plead to something and have a record because some teacher and principal were jerks and the police officer had an inflated opinion of himself. If there were any justice every kid in the school would have worn an NRA shirt the next day and every adult would have sowed up at his hearing to object to the DA and the police. What the kids should have done was to anticipate this and have a pro-abortion shirt to change into. It would have befuddled the principal and made a better story.

tommy2rs,
Great links. I copied down the tick and flea repellent. And read the others. Glad I visited the site today. Sure worth it. Thanks.

#2 – We the people are at least partially at fault. We in general are wimps who don’t want to feel any discomfort, want instant gratification, and are too easily swayed but advertising, door to our general lack of knowledge of things like science. How many people do you know who drink bottled water, and why? The advertisers have convinced everyone that the tap water isn’t safe, and people are too ignorant to know otherwise.
#3 – If this is the case then humanity is doomed. I’m pretty sure the folks hiding in the Kansas mines will be the rich folk whose idea of being prepared is to have staff to do things for them. Really self reliant folks won’t be able to afford these retreats.
#5 – This one only shows that too many teachers and administrators are simply idiots.
