Pretty funny but sad. UCLA students say Obama deserves Peace Prize, but can't say why:

Students at the University of California (USC) said that President Obama definitely still deserves his Nobel Peace Prize — but had a hard time explaining why.

“I just feel like in general being a good guy, it’s just creating a lot more peace and like, mellow,” said one student, adding,“I love Obama, and I love everything he is doing. I just feel like everyone is so hard on him and it’s only his second year.”

When asked what the difference was between President Obama and President Bush invading the Middle East, that student’s answer was simple:

“Bush, I just didn’t like him,” she said.“I just don’t.”

Other students explained that some of his initiatives — such as his economic policies and Obamacare — made Americans happy and so led to world peace.

One student said he thought Obama had strengthened diplomatic ties “with countries” but could not explain what he meant.

“Just good-natured intentions,” he said.

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Clinic has told workers they will be laying off an unspecified number of employees as part of an overall, sweeping cost-reduction plan.

Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove discussed the looming cuts and changes in a Wednesday morning all-employee meeting.

Clinic spokeswoman Eileen Sheil denied circulating rumors that employees were told there would be 3,000 jobs cut.

She said any layoffs will be part of a multi-year plan to cut $330 million from the Clinic's budget.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center is eliminating several hundred more jobs this week as part of its plan to cut up to 1,000 positions by the end of the year.

The cuts are expected to continue for several more weeks, and should be complete by late October.

According to a letter sent to state and city officials, Vanderbilt said the workers receiving notice would be “permanently laid off starting on November 16, 2013 and continuing until or on about December 31, 2013.” All affected employees will be given 60 days’ notice, the letter said.

“What’s happened here at Vanderbilt is today we’ve started this action, and several hundred people will be leaving the organization,” said John Howser, spokesman for VUMC.

This latest round of layoffs is part of the medical center’s plan to cut $250 million from its $3.3 billion operating budget over the next two fiscal years. Jeffrey Balser, head of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, has told staff that the restructuring is part of a plan called “Evolve to Excel.”

It's not my kids I'm worried about. It's kids who don't have parental supervision who are playing these extremely violent and graphic video games and are being trained to become trained killers.

Have you seen some of them? They really are very disturbing.

A scientific study followed children who watched violent shows on television throughout their adult lives and the statistics showed that many of them ended up having run ins with the law and acted out in other violent and anti-social behaviors.

And these children weren't even playing Navy Seals training video games where killing people was not only stimulating but rewarding.

We're overlooking the real source of the problem by our complacency regarding technology and the easy access to inappropriate exposure to excessive violence with video games and pornography and cyber bulling on the Internet.

Correct. There will be a two-tier medical system and those with assets will do just fine.

The middle class will join the poor in welfare clinics.

In an unprecedented report on the Navy Yard shooting just put out by WSUA9, it appears the Capitol Police SWAT team was called back to the Hill in an apparent stand down order. This order was given while the shooter was still active.(Brings to mind Cheney and 9/11/01)
