Feds Forced Churches To Get Baptism Permits

For as far back as anyone can remember, Missouri Baptists have gathered on river banks for Sunday afternoon baptisms.

The preacher leads the new believers into the water, draped in white robes as a choir sings, “Shall We Gather at the River.”

It’s the way it’s been done for generations – baptizing in creeks, lakes, and rivers “in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”

But now the long-cherished tradition of “taking the plunge” has been drawn into a controversy with the federal government.

FAST FOOD 'STRIKES' SHOW ECONOMIC FOLLY OF AMNESTY

On Thursday, thousands of fast food employees and allied union members walked off the job and protested in cities across the country. They were agitating for a hike in the minimum wage, from the current $7.25 an hour to $15 an hour. That isn't going to happen. Congress, however, is considering legislation that would flood the labor market with low-skilled workers. The low wages paid by fast food employers could be depressed even further.

Labor is a market, subject to the same laws of supply and demand that guide the rest of the economy. Employers will pay no more than the amount necessary to attract enough workers to do the job they require. This is the same phenomenon that pushes a consumer to shop around to pay the least amount for a product or service they desire. It is a law of economics, but it might as well be a law of physics.

Pelosi Pushes For Syria Retaliation

According to Politico sources, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pushed Obama administration officials "to take military action to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad in response to reports that he used chemical weapons in his nation’s ongoing civil war."

Last night, Obama administration officials (sans Obama) held an unclassified 90 minute conference call after a growing number of Congress members demanded to be consulted regarding military action in Syria. Susan Rice, Chuck Hagel, John Kerry, Director of National Intel James Clapper and Sandy Winnefeld, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke for the administration.

Obama: Sex Ed For Kindergartners ‘Is The Right Thing To Do’

The Chicago Public Schools this year are mandating that the district’s kindergarten classes include sex education, fulfilling a proposal President Barack Obama supported in 2003 when he served in the Illinois state senate and later defended when he ran for president in the 2008 election cycle.

At a Planned Parenthood convention at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C., on July 17, 2007, a teenage girl who said she worked as a sex-education “peer educator” in the D.C. public schools asked then-U.S. Sen. Obama what he would do to encourage the teaching of “medically accurate, age-appropriate, and responsible sex education.”

State Falls Short Of Estimated Revenues

EASTON — After Maryland met economic growth expectations in fiscal year 2012, the state fell short of General Fund revenue expectations in FY 2013, according to the comptroller's office.

Comptroller Peter Franchot reiterated a call for caution in the midst of a slow and anemic economic recovery after releasing the final closeout number for FY 2013.

"These revenue figures highlight an economy that remains exceedingly fragile and uncertain, and they remind us that we must proceed on a prudent financial course in the months ahead.

Teens Charged In Florida Bus Beating Enter Guilty Pleas

Three teenagers charged in a vicious school bus beating were sentenced to indefinite probation Thursday in a Florida juvenile court.

The probation sentence for the trio of 15-year-olds came with multiple conditions including community service, random drug tests and electronic monitoring, meaning ankle bracelets for as long as 60 days.

In addition, the teens must also take anger management classes, comply with mandatory curfews and stay away from the vicitm.

Joshua Reddin, Julian McKnight and Lloyd Khemradj had all pled guilty earlier Thursday to aggravated battery charges in the attack on a 13-year-old boy on a Pinellas County school bus in July. Reddin also pleaded guilty to a count of robbery for taking $5 from the victim after the assault.

Security Increases At Worcester Co. Public Schools For 2013-14

(Aug. 30, 2013) Worcester County Public Schools have ramped up security for the 2013-2014 school year with new security deputies patrolling each campus, additional cameras surveying schools, electronic entry systems and other safety measures.

“It offers a vital layer of protection,” said the schools’ Coordinator of Public Relations and Special Programs Barbara Witherow, a member of the schools’ Safety Committee. “When students feel safe and when teachers feel safe, they can focus fully on teaching and learning.”

Discussions on propping up school safety started immediately in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting last December, when 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot 26 people and himself at the school.

Jury Finds Teen Guilty Of Murdering Georgia Baby In Stroller

MARIETTA, GA. – An 18-year-old man was convicted of murder in the shooting of a baby who was riding in a stroller alongside his mom in a town in coastal Georgia despite the defense's attempt to cast guilt upon several others, including the child's parents.

Jurors deliberated about two hours before finding De'Marquise Elkins guilty of 11 counts, including two counts of felony murder and one count of malice murder in the March 21 killing of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in Brunswick. The man's mother, Karimah Elkins, was on trial alongside him and was found guilty of tampering with evidence but acquitted of lying to police.

De'Marquise Elkins faces life in prison when he is sentenced at a later date. At the time of the shooting he was 17, too young to face the death penalty under Georgia law.

George W. Bush: Obama Has A ‘Tough Choice’ To Make On Syria

Former President George W. Bush said on Friday that President Barack Obama has a "tough choice" to make in determining a U.S. response to the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons.

"The president's got a tough choice to make," Bush told "Fox & Friends" host Brian Kilmeade. "And if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up."

"I'm not a fan of Mr. Assad," he added. "He's an ally of Iran, and he's made mischief."

Obama Grants Amnesty To Illegal Immigrants Without Congress

Congress hasn’t passed immigration legislation, but that hasn’t stopped President Obama from issuing directives that grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.

Last week, the Obama Administration issued the latest in a line of policy directives granting amnesty by default. This latest directive instructs Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials not to enforce immigration laws in cases where an illegal alien is the primary provider for any minor child—regardless of the child’s immigration status—or the parent or guardian of a child who is a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.

Obama Disarms Americans While Arming The World

As President Barack Obama has outwardly attempted to curtail Americans’ Constitutional Second Amendment right to bear arms, his Administration has approved huge increases in defense spending and export sales. The Administration is now seeking to eliminate stringent State Department controls on exports and foreign licensing of dozens of categories of weapons and technology from the United States Munitions List (USML) by transferring control to the pro-business Commerce Department.

In spite of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) warnings this change could increase terrorist access to dangerous weapons, the Administration claims this “reform” would enhance “the competitiveness of key United States manufacturing and technology sectors.”

Mosquito-Borne Diseases Found In Worcester and Wicomico

(Aug. 30, 2013) The Wicomico and Worcester County Health Departments received updated test results from the State of Maryland that a mosquito pool in southern Worcester County tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). In Wicomico County, there was one pool that tested positive for West Nile Virus (WNV), one pool that tested positive for EEE, and an additional pool tested positive for both.

The pools were sampled in remote, low lying areas of the counties, usually known to have standing water year round. This is in addition to the single sample of mosquitoes from Ocean Pines that tested positive for WNV last week.

West Nile Virus is most common during the summer and fall and the number of infections usually peaks mid-August. The virus is transmitted by infected mosquitoes and spread to humans, birds, horses and other animals.

ANOTHER BANK BREAKS INTO WRONG HOUSE, REPOSSESSES WOMAN’S BELONGINGS – BUT THIS TIME THE MISTAKE WAS MUCH WORSE

A West Virginia woman is the latest victim of a wrongful home repossession. Nikki Bailey, of Logan, W.Va., returned home from visiting her best friend in the hospital to find all of her belongings gone.

As it turns out, an unidentified bank sent repo men to the wrong house, in the wrong town.

You can imagine Bailey’s surprise as her home was bought in full 25 years ago. The only things she was able to recover were a dresser, a chest of drawers and a mirror. Everything else she owns is gone.

Is The End Near For Maryland Republicans?

  • The Lower Eastern Shore’s GOP senator, Richard Colburn, is trying to explain to auditors (and the public) why he reimbursed himself from his campaign fund for $4,600 worth of Oriole baseball tickets, $23,000 in meals, $3,900 in lodging, $3,400 in gas and $600 for flowers.
  • An Anne Arundel County delegate got himself arrested yet again for potentially lethal intoxication, this time while driving a weaving car at 70 mph with an expired license. Don Dwyer refuses to take the hint from colleagues to resign. He’s got a serious addiction he needs to address before he’s fit for elective office.

SUDLERSVILLE — The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office has confirmed it was a bomb that fell from the sky on the night of Thursday, Aug. 29, at Darlene's Tavern.

Witnesses reported an object fell from the sky about 9:20 p.m. and buried itself in the parking lot. No one was injured, police said.

Maryland State Police and local fire departments responded. When they cleared away some of the debris, they found what appeared to be a military-style bomb, according to Deputy State Fire Marshal Bruce Bouch. They called for the bomb squad from the fire marshal's office.

Why Did Milton Friedman Want School Vouchers?

Last week, I wrote an article on federal housing vouchers. I made the point that these vouchers are like all other vouchers: a pseudo-market intrusion of the government into our lives.

I made an assumption: the evil side of housing vouchers will be apparent to conservatives in a way that school vouchers are not.

Conservatives also oppose food stamps. Yet food stamps are vouchers. I showed this, too.

I made a second point: vouchers are a favorite solution to economists who follow Milton Friedman. Friedman favored pseudo-market solutions in the name of free enterprise.

Austrian School economists have not been taken in by this approach. They see vouchers for what they are. Lew Rockwell wrote the following back in 2000.

Don't Show Obama This Report About Who Really Is Behind The Syrian Chemical Attacks

As we showed mere days ago, it appears the truth of who the real puppet-master in the Middle-East is becoming plainer to see. The incredibly frank discussion between Saudi's spy-chief Prince Bandar and Russia's Putin exposed a much deeper plot is afoot and the following details from the actual people on the ground in the chemically-attacked region of Syria suggest Obama is playing right into the Saudi's plan. While Obama is 'certain' that the chemical attacks took place on al-Assad's orders, as MPN reports, "from numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerges. Many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack."

The narrative for public consumption is well-known and quite clear - it was all as-Assad's fault. And yet...

2,400 Year Old Wisdom On The NSA, Edward Snowden, And Gun Control

Nearly 2,400 years ago, Aristotle wrote one of the defining works of political philosophy in a book entitled Politics.

It’s still incredibly relevant today, particularly what he writes about tyranny.

The ancient Greeks used the word ‘turannos’, which referred to an illegitimate ruler who governs without regard for the law or interests of the people, often through violent and coercive means.

Aristotle attacks tyrants mercilessly in his book, and clearly spells out the criteria which make a leader tyrannical. You may recognize a few of them:
Artistotle suggests that a tyrant rises to power by first demonstrating that he is a man of the people:
“He ought to show himself to his subjects in the light, not of a tyrant, but of a steward and a king.”

Winds Of War And The Unanswered Question:

By Ellen Sauerbrey

The slaughter of hundreds of innocent civilians with chemical weapons "shocks the conscience of the world". It has provoked a debate that is dominating our press on how the U.S. should respond to punish the Assad regime. It appears that we are preparing to take some kind of action. But before we commit American lives and treasure, I hope we know the answer to a basic question that no one is discussing. What is the evidence that it was Assad that used the weapons and not the rebels?

There are no good guys in this civil war in which there are already over 100,000 casualties, but which side is currently the most desperate, Assad or the rebels? Why would Assad, whose forces have had the upper hand in recent months, decide to cross that "red line" to kill several hundred women and children, knowing that it would force Obama's hand, provoke an overwhelming response from the U.S. and our allies, and perhaps destroy his regime.. On the other hand, the rebels are very good at manipulating the Western media and would welcome a U.S. response that would perhaps wipe out Assad's air force or other assets.

The Assad regime agreed to allow U.N. inspectors into the area of the chemical attack, but the U.S. quickly discounted what they would find. Snipers attacked the U.N. team that was attempting to investigate.. The government said that that they had provided safety for the team until they reached a position controlled by the rebels, where it claimed the sniper attack occurred.

A Washington Times article by Shaun Waterman dated May 6, 2013 reported that "Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.". This was virtually ignored by our government at the time.

Congress must demand that Obama present the evidence to substantiate who used the chemical weapons before we jump into another Middle East conflict. We know that most of the rebel forces have been taken over by Al Qaeda, so it is not clear who it is we are helping. One of the few good things that could be said of Assad is that his secular regime has given reasonable protection to religious minorities. Christians, Druze, Alawite and other religious minorities have coalesced around the Assad regime out of fear that if the radical Islamists gain control of Syria, these minorities are likely to be decimated.

A U.S. military action deploying cruise missiles and drones may lead to far more civilian deaths than the recent chemical attack and is likely to provoke a Russian response. So what is our objective and where is this all leading us? One thing is for sure, it has certainly changed the conversation from Benghazi, NSA spying, and the IRS scandals --to 24/7 chatter about what Obama will do in Syria.

Doctors' Group President: Obamacare Rules 'Arbitrary and Capricious'

Dr. Juliette Madrigal-Dersch still makes house calls in Marble Falls, Texas.

She provides free health care to foster children, cancer patients, ministers, even teachers, and says her regular patients get better care than most because she refuses to accept private insurance or Medicare.

"The service is a lot better because all the decisions about health care are made just between the doctor and the patient," Madrigal-Dersch said in an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV.

Bob Shiller Warns "None Of This Is Real; The Housing Market Has Become Very Speculative"

With the Case-Shiller 20-City index up double-digits for the 4th straight month, Bob Shiller has some choice words for the CNBC interviewers about the 'housing recovery'. "Housing is a market with momentum," he notes, "and right now, the momentum is up;" but he adds that while house prices are 'recovering', he remains much less sanguine about this recent move. But it is once he has explained the potential concerns that may weigh on the housing market that Shiller comes into his own as he explains "none of this is real, the housing market has gotten very speculative."

Housing goes through "big cycles," he chides, noting that California "has gone up and down like a roller-coaster for decades but doesn't get anywhere... that's what these markets have become."

Perfectly summarizing the current situation, Shiller concludes, "for the long-term buyer, the fact that [prices] are going up now doesn't mean anything for where it will when you sell."

Must see clip as Shiller scoffs at the current sentiment, the resurgence of 'flipping', and that the housing market is "driven by irrational exuberance."
