Chemical Facility Safety – What the President’s Executive Order Means
http://www.environmentalleader.com/2014/07/07...
Last August, President Obama issued an Executive Order (EO 13650) to agencies with responsibilities for chemical facility safety (I wrote about it here). The EO provides for a Chemical Facility Safety and Security Working Group, co-chaired by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS, which administers the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards – CFATS – program), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, which administers the Accidental Release Prevention – ARP – program under Clean Air Act) and Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA, which administers Chemical Process Safety Management – PSM – Standard), and also including the Departments of Transportation, Justice (DOJ) and Agriculture. It directs them to work together to improve their operational coordination, and to consult with other security and environmental agencies at all levels of government, as well as the White House.

The demonizing of Barack Obama

February is African American History Month. Yet these are days of sadness.
The brilliance of hope, so blinding a few short years ago, has dimmed. The dreams of a 21st-century America, where achievement is based on skills, determination and merit, free from an arbitrary color standard, have been replaced with injuries inflicted by present-day haters as malevolent as some of our worst enemies of the past.
Who could have imagined a U.S. publication suggesting that Israel “give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place.” In case you were unsure of what you’d just read, the writer clarified,“Yes .&#8201;.&#8201;. order a hit on a president in order to preserve Israel’s existence.”
Those words were written only a few weeks ago, in a column by the owner and publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times, a weekly newspaper that dates back to 1925. Andrew Adler’s call for President Obama’s assassination was immediately condemned by major Jewish organizations. He apologized, resigned from his post and has reportedly put the paper up for sale.
But it can’t be unsaid. To read in a mainstream publication that Barack Obama should be killed takes the breath away.
How many other Americans think the same way? Such thoughts didn’t start with Adler. They don’t stop with him.
The Universal Notebook: Demonizing the opposition
http://www.theforecaster.net/news/print/2014/...
The fact that a member of the Yarmouth Republican Committee reportedly called Falmouth Democrats “evil” does not really surprise me. William Gardiner, who served as the dummy candidate in the District 25 Republican state Senate primary, was just thumping the partisan tub to get out the vote against Senate candidate Cathy Breen, a former Falmouth town councilor, when he raised the specter of evil.

Branding the opposition as evil has become SOP for both the GOP and the Dems. Just Google “Democrats are evil” or “Republicans are evil” if you don’t believe me. For example, here’s this from the Free Republic website:

Readers react passionately to Mobile County 'In God We Trust' debate
http://www.al.com/news/mobile/index.ssf/2014/...
More than 300 people commented on AL com; here are some of the responses.

"This controversy will wind up in court and costs a lot of money. It would have been better to have done nothing and avoided all the expense. People do not agree on this question so leave it alone," said reader Henry4.

"If folks actually "Trust in God" there's no need to put a plaque up on a wall ... any wall," said 5PointsJoe.

"Conservatives put "In god we trust" on money in the 1950's to knock the Soviet Union, not because they actually care about god. They only care about retaining power over fools," said BidBid.

"Hard to argue with the logic. I personally dont think it matters to the true Father. According to his son hes not big on all that public display stuff," said LastRebel.

AlphaRaptor also weighed in. "''So help me God", when swearing in. Is that going by the wayside too? This country is doomed!"

On the Press-Register's Facebook page, readers also expressed their views.

Michael McGehee said "IN GOD WE TRUST SHOULD STAY!! If you don't like it move to another country and practice your religion. We should have to omit things make u happy. Just leave!!"

Yakir Ze'ev said "Save god for church. There are other religions, either recognize all or recognize none."

Readers are welcomed to interact with AL com on any article via the website, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

The local atheist community plans to propose a mural that represents their beliefs sometime this year.

<quoted text>See how much gun control helps, in one of the most strict gun controlled cities in the country
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' expected to bring complaints about its alleged gun-control agenda

The movie's apes acquire weapons and revolt, which some conservatives say sends the wrong message about guns; screenwriter Mark Bomback says it has nothing to do with real-world politics
http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/alle...
“If we were just going to try and Trojan-horse a gun-control message in the film, that would be a pretty narrow approach,” says Bomback, who also wrote “Live Free or Die Hard” and “Unstoppable.”

“First, the issue of gun control involves lots of complicated reasons why that is or isn’t a good idea. This film takes place in a postapocalypse in which there’s a different meaning behind guns.

“When an ape uses one in ‘Dawn,’ it’s the moment we see how ape society will ultimately evolve (in the ‘Planet of the Apes’ world) into a militaristic version of human society. The gun symbolizes human technology dedicated to violence.

“In that sense here, guns are like the serpent in Eden,” he adds.

PETE “THE CHEAT” PERRY ARRESTED FOR DUI

As some of you may be aware by now, Hinds County GOP chair Pete Perry, a man that many believe is behind the shenanigans on June 24, was arrested for speeding and drunk driving this past Saturday night. Here is his mugshot. Hopefully there will be more pics like this in the future! We can only pray!

Sorry "Politics", but you're the idiot in this particular conversation.

There are a series of immigration laws and regulations that prevent the immediate deportation of unescorted minors. Most notably, a law that was passed when Bush was president that was intended to protect underage immigrants from potential abuse.

Obama has requested that congress make changes to that law to make it easier to deport the new wave of undocumented minors, but so far nothing from our esteemed lawmakers in the House.

Following the law, which you claim to be in favor of, means these children can't be deported without due process.

Obama seeks change to law that protects immigrant kids

Nostalgic GOP Pines After Bush With 'I Miss W.' T-Shirts
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/05/geor...
The Republican National Committee is celebrating former President George W. Bush's birthday this weekend by selling wistful "I Miss W." t-shirts to its supporters.

"President George W. Bush led our nation through some of the most challenging moments of our nation’s history — and we miss him and his leadership," reads a fundraising pitch on the RNC's website. "By sporting this comfortable, classic, American-made tee, you can share our message and help us elect principled conservative leaders to office."

The RNC may have been emboldened by a Quinnipiac University poll this week, which found that a third of U.S. voters think Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II. Bush came in second, with 28 percent naming him as the worst recent president, followed by Richard Nixon with 13 percent.

The RNC has also been selling colorful limited-edition socks embroidered with the signature of former President George H.W. Bush.

Mississippi Tea Party Leader Commits Suicide After Arrest In Senate Campaign Scandal

Mayfield was one of three people arrested in connection with an investigation into an alleged break-in at a nursing home to film the unsuspecting wife of Mississippi Republican Sen. Thad Cochran.

The arrest of Mayfield, the Mississippi Tea Party's vice chair, came days after the arrest of Clayton Thomas Kelly, a local activist and blogger who allegedly snuck into Rose Cochran's nursing home and videotaped her.

Don't know for sure. But he's probably one of these guys that has armed body guards for his family, but condemns private citizens that own them.

get busy. the laws currently protect sex trade children from countries coming in illegally. get it sex trade? current laws would not protect the thousands of illegals coming in from where? You got it----Mexico and Canada. they would be deported immediately. where are they coming from? Obama knows exactly what the laws are and he is following them. Mexico is letting kids from where come across their borders into where? these kids will get a lawyer with help per the immigration laws, before they are deported. meanwhile proper housing, lawyers, on and on at poor working American folks expense. look it up lazy know it all. surely you don't think all this is for free or that obama has all these children from where coming in by the thousands for naught do you? nail it.
