Reuters)- Police in northwestern Oregon said they plan to conduct an extensive search of the high school attended by a teenager they arrested after receiving a tip that he had produced a bomb and planned to detonate it at school.

The Albany, Oregon, police said in a statement that Grant Acord, 17, a West Albany High School student, was arrested without incident late on Thursday at his home following a tip that he had a bomb and planned to detonate it at school.

According to local media reports, the items police discovered included pipe bombs, Molotov cocktails, napalm and explosives made from drain cleaner. Local media also quoted prosecutors as saying Acord planned an attack modeled after the 1999 Columbine High School massacre where two teenagers shot a teacher and 12 other students to death before committing suicide

Despite expiring patents on blockbuster drugs and a wave of new regulation from the Affordable Care Act that will cost drug makers, the pharmaceutical industry will reap between “$10 billion and $35 billion in additional profits over the next decade,” a new analysis shows.

The health law, which will bring millions of uninsured Americans health benefits beginning in January 2014, will be a critical boon to pharmaceutical industry balance sheets, increasing revenue by one-third by the end of the decade, according to a new report from research and consulting firm GlobalData of London. That means the U.S. pharmaceutical industry’s market value will mushroom by 33 percent to $476 billion in 2020 from $359 billion last year.

The increase in sales and profits comes amid a wave of expiring patents on some of the industry’s most popular brand name drugs such as Lipitor from Pfizer PFE -0.24%(PFE), the blood thinner Plavix sold by Bristol-Myers Squibb BMY +0.85%(BMY), the diabetes drug Actos from Eli Lilly (LLY) and Takeda Pharmaceuticals as well as various cholesterol treatments sold by Abbott Laboratories ABT +0.75%(ABT) and its recently spun off proprietary business AbbVie ABBV -2.47%(ABBV). In large part because of competition from cheaper generic drugs, a report last year from IMS Health, for example, said pharmaceutical manufacturers will see “minimal growth in their branded products through 2016.”

But the health law will pave the way for a major rebound in sales with an estimated $115 billion in new business over a 10-year period. Enrollment in the Medicaid health insurance program alone is expected to increase by about 19.5 million people, GlobalData said.

PARIS — French anti-terrorism investigators were combing video surveillance tapes Sunday as they continued their manhunt for a suspect who stabbed a soldier in the throat in the commercial district of La Defense outside Paris.

The 23-year-old soldier, Cedric Cordier, was in uniform patrolling the busy underground corridors where shops and crowded public transport lines converge beneath the famous Arch of La Defense.

California? They are already in bankruptcy!
See, you are easy to fool by fake numbers!
Let me ask you a questions: if Obamacare is so great, why are more and more unions and business asking for Obamacare waivers, why?
http://conservativewatchnews.com/2012/11/16/h...
How’s That Obamacare Waiver Workin’ Out for Ya?
Exactly two years ago this week, the Obama administration announced it had issued more than 100 waivers en masse to a select group of companies, unions and other health insurance providers seeking relief from the onerous federal health care law. The Obamacare waiver winner’s club now totals 2,000. Where are they now?
Answer: In the same miserable boat as every other unlucky business struggling with the crushing costs and burdens of the mandate.
Among the first and most prominent recipients of the Obamacare waivers for favors were large restaurant chains that provide low-wage, seasonal and part-time workers with low-cost health insurance plans called “mini-med” plans. An estimated 1.7 million workers benefit from such plans. Obamacare forced companies carrying such coverage to raise their minimum limits on coverage to no less than $750,000 annually. Another Obamacare provision forces all employers to spend at least 80 percent to 85 percent of their premium revenue on medical care.
The social justice Democrats’ goal was to dictate insurance provider spending not just on coverage amounts, but also on executive salaries, marketing and other costs. The regulation punished companies with mini-med plans whose high administrative costs were due to frequent worker turnover and relatively low spending on claims — not “greed.” Complying with the provision would have meant tens of thousands of low-income workers would lose their benefits altogether.
why don't these liberals hold up HAWAI'I for a role model of forced health care--they have had it longer than anyone. They are now a drugged up state and broke... on top of that, the doctors are leaving in droves.

We've finally found a real scandal involving e-mails, but its on the republicans side. "PHOENIX -- Arizona's bitter debate over a signature part of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul has sparked an investigation into lawmakers' safety after at least nine legislators received a threatening email over Gov. Jan Brewer's push to expand Medicaid access.
The message referred to Second Amendment rights and shooting someone, but did not include any direct threats. It was sent to House Speaker Andy Tobin, who opposes the Medicaid expansion, and eight other Republican House members.
"Please kill SB1492, the Medicaid Expansion Act," the email begins, before quoting the Second Amendment. It then reads, "If you are ever asked why you shot the person, the only answer from your lips should be, I felt my life, or/and my family's life was in immediate danger of death. So I did what I had to do in order to eliminate this threat. "
State police are also investigating a voicemail left for Rep. Kate Brophy McGee, a Phoenix Republican who supports the Medicaid expansion. " Check this out: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/25/thre...

It'll be much easier, less expensive ,and less unsettling to our normal lifestyle to shift to developing renewables , solar, wind, and geothermal; plus redesign of our cities and towns to increase the efficiency of the urban energy metabolism---reducing the exurban over-development sprawl like our European allies had done.

Sure Carol, that's why none of them were denied tax exempt status. In fact, the only known 501(c)(4) applicant to recently have its status denied happens to be a progressive group: the Maine chapter of Emerge America, which trains Democratic women to run for office. Although the group did no electoral work, and didn’t participate in independent expenditure campaign activity either, its partisan nature disqualified it from being categorized as working for the “common good.”
However the Louisville Tea Party was granted 501(c)(4) status in 2009. Nevertheless, it published a list of “officially tea party endorsed candidates for the 2011 Kentucky primary.” They also published an article “The Rationale for Romney-Ryan,” arguing for Tea Partiers to vote for the Republican candidate. That's a clear violation of their 501(c)(4) status.
What "average citizens" were targeted Carol?
You're the one out of the loop Carol.
Great links, Jerk.

Keeping a list of the Magic Negro's enemies is one thing but keeping a list of who contributes to those enemies so you can punish them is a whole different ball game.

You don't think that threatening to kill someone if they don't do as you say is a felony crime. It is and threatening to kill elected representatives if they approve of Medicare extension and implementing the new Obamacare health reform law is a heinous felony crime.

Beverly Cancels Memorial Day Parade Due To Lack Of Veterans

BEVERLY (CBS)– This Sunday, the streets of Beverly will look just like they always do. And that’s the problem, some veterans say. The city has cancelled its annual Memorial Day parade for what’s believed to be the first time since the end of the Civil War.

City officials think that’s possible. If enough veterans come forward to participate, or if the city can come up with another way to have them be a part of the parade, then the city will bring it back.

http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/05/24/beverly...

They could have made them floats ... to ride on ...
Pushed them in WHEELCHAIRS ...

They could have DONE SOMETHING to NOT CANCEL!

truly PATHETIC!
