The unintended negative consequences of government interference in the egg industry.
http://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/3270304-181/new-state-law-upends-eggUnintended consequences of government interference in the egg industry.
Proposition 2, the animal welfare ballot proposition passed by voters in 2008, is just one of several factors responsible for the record price of conventional eggs around the country, experts said. But the initiative is largely credited for reshaping the nation’s egg industry and for prompting high-stakes legal battles and regulatory debates that continue to this day.

Deadly Diseases Crossing Border with Illegal Immigrants
Jun 25, 2014
By Elizabeth Lee Vliet, MD – http://HerPlace.comA flood of illegals has massively surged at our southwestern borders. The economic impact of medical care, education and incarceration for illegals forced on taxpayers is bankrupting Arizona.
Why are such swarms entering the U.S. illegally NOW, particularly children? Newspapers in Mexico and Central and South America are actually describing U.S. “open borders,” encouraging people to come with promises of food stamps or “amnesty.” It is textbook Cloward-Piven strategy to overwhelm and collapse the economic and social systems, in order to replace them with a “new socialist order” under federal control.
Carried by this tsunami of illegals are the invisible “travelers” our politicians don’t like to mention: diseases the U.S. had controlled or virtually eradicated: tuberculosis (TB), Chagas disease, dengue fever, hepatitis, malaria, measles, plus more. I have been working on medical projects in Central and South America since 2009, so I am aware of problems these countries face from such diseases.

Good post, but I question the data suggesting illegal immigrants voting repub if granted amnesty. Would rather not have them here at all.

The transformation (sell-out) of Rand Paul continues as he gears up for 2016
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) criticized his own party on Thursday for supposedly making it tough for minorities to vote. (Got presidential ambitions, Rand?)
Speaking at the Liberty PAC conference, a group tied to his über-Libertarian dad, Ron Paul, the senator said:
“So many times, Republicans are seen as this party of, ‘We don’t want black people to vote because they’re voting Democrat, we don’t want Hispanic people to vote because they’re voting Democrat.’
We wonder why the Republican Party is so small. Why don’t we be the party that’s for people voting, for voting rights?”
Man, where does one begin? Let’s start here:
First, what evidence do you have, Mr. Paul, to support your ridiculous claim that Republicans don’t want black people to vote? (We just don’t want them to vote more than once.)

Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, the newly elected President of Croatia has achieved an amazing victory even though the winning margin between her and her opponent Ivo Jospovic in numerical value is considered minimal or very low. But to achieve victory in so profoundly politically divided country at this particular time of economic slump and brinks of threatening bankruptcy is a result worthy of greatness in its own right.
Since Sunday January 11, when the highest voter turnout in the last 15 years voted for a new president – aroused from a rather deep democratic sleep by the emotions unleashed by the Centre-Right (Croatian Democratic Union/HDZ and coalition currently in parliamentary opposition) and Centre-Left (Social Democrats and coalition currently holding government) face-off –…

Yeah, the guy’s name was Matthew Lesko. He did those silly infomercials, shamelessly shilling for his books about how easy it was to get free money from the government.
Randomly, I realized this morning: “Geez, I haven’t seen Lesko on TV for years.” Then it dawned on me: he lost his job to this guy, six years ago:
