Man Mauled by Bear While Not At Work Gets Workers' Comp

The Seattle Times
Court: Man mauled after smoking pot gets work comp
Published Thursday, March 24, 2011 at 8:16 AM
The Montana Supreme Court has upheld a Workers' Compensation Court ruling that about $65,000 in medical bills incurred by a man who was mauled while feeding the bears at a tourist attraction should be covered by workers' compensation, despite the fact the man had smoked marijuana on the day of the attack.

The Montana Supreme Court is so far out there on this, it is not funny.  The Justices who voted to uphold the lower court's ruling should be stripped of their robes.  No one, and I mean absolutely no one is entitled to Worker's Compensation for injuries sustained in a non-work related incident.

This individual was mauled by a bear while feeding it at a tourist attraction.  Not only was he feeding the bear he was doing so after having smoked Marijuana.

The only question that needed to be asked is, was this injury worker related?  If the answer is no, then no workers' comp for you.  It really is that simple.

What's the Constitution? Don't bother asking 70% of Americans

What's the Constitution? Don't bother asking 70% of Americans: Alarming number of U.S. citizens don't know basic facts about their own country
By Rachel Quigley

Stumped: In the U.S. citizenship test, only 38 per cent of Americans passed and some didn't know answers to basic questions like who is the vice president?
First Christina Aguilera forgot the words to the national anthem.

Now it has emerged that 70 per cent of Americans do not know what the Constitution is, and six per cent don't even know when Independence Day falls.

Newsweek recently gave 1,000 Americans the U.S. Citizenship test and found that their knowledge of the history and running of their own country was seriously lacking.

Although the majority passed, more than a third - 38 per cent - failed, and some of the basic questions surrounding citizenship were answered incorrectly.

The U.S. citizenship test is administered to all immigrants applying for citizenship. It is comprised of 100 questions across five categories - American government, systems of government, rights and responsibilities, American history and integrated civics.

Congressman King Under Fire for Hearings

King Draws Fire for Hearings on Radicalization of Muslims in U.S., But Most Americans Support Discussion
Published March 10, 2011 | FoxNews.com
WASHINGTON -- Rep. Peter King has had around-the-clock security as he pushes forward with a hearing Thursday on the radicalization of Muslims in America, but a new Gallup poll shows a majority of Americans support King's plans.

The New York Republican who is hosting the first in a series of hearings on homegrown terror, will have extra security from Capitol Police who will be securing the congressional hearing room and surrounding areas, as well as his office, as the House Homeland Security Committee takes testimony.

History shows that appeasement does not work; and no matter how hard you try to ignore the issue it will not go away. It will become a even larger problem if not dealt with head-on. The issue of Islam and it's leaders, must be dealt with; and openly addressed.

Taxing Church Attendance?

Taking Liberties: Taxing Church Attendance?
By Douglas Kennedy
Published March 10, 2011 | FoxNews.com
Erik Stanley walked up Woodson Road in Mission, Kansas, surveying the church parking lot at St. Pius X Catholic Church. He said the government can tax your life and can tax your death, but they’re not supposed to tax your church.

And that’s exactly what he said is happening in Mission.

“The city of Mission is taxing churches,” he said. “And that’s clearly unconstitutional.”

Jim Demint: Public Broadcasting Should Go Private

Public Broadcasting Should Go Private
by Jim Demint
When presidents of government-funded broadcasting are making more than the president of the United States, it's time to get the government out of public broadcasting.

While executives at the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and National Public Radio (NPR) are raking in massive salaries, the organizations are participating in an aggressive lobbying effort to prevent Congress from saving hundreds of millions of dollars each year by cutting their subsidies. The so-called commercial free public airwaves have been filled with pleas for taxpayer cash. The Association of Public Television Stations has hired lobbyists to fight the cuts. Hundreds of taxpayer-supported TV, radio and Web outlets have partnered with an advocacy campaign to facilitate emails and phone calls to Capitol Hill for the purpose of telling members of Congress, "Public broadcasting funding is too important to eliminate!"

Lifting the ban on ‘concurrent receipt’

Lifting the ban on ‘concurrent receipt’
The American Legion - March 4, 2011
Legislation has been introduced in both houses of the 112th Congress that would allow qualified military retirees to receive both their VA disability compensation and DoD pensions at the same time. Called “concurrent receipt,” the dollar-for-dollar offset of military retirement pay based on the amount of VA medical disability compensation one receives has long been opposed by The American Legion.

Concurrent receipt of retirement pay and disability compensation has been expanded in recent years, but it still does not apply to military retirees with service-connected disabilities rated less than 50 percent. The continuing practice of requiring disabled retirees to fund their own pensions is commonly known as the “disabled veterans tax.”

Media Hides Real Reason for Rise in Gas Prices

Media Hides Real Reason for Rise in Gas Prices
by Ron Futrell Feb 27th 2011
Fill ‘er up folks. Gas prices in Southern California have hit $4.59 a gallon.

Oh, the media has finally started covering “Pain at the Pump” but they are not giving us the real reasons for the jump. Unrest in the middle east has given the cabal of President Obama and the media, “cover” to blame others for the spike to the stratosphere.

The real reasons are three-fold, with unrest in the middle east being the least of the three.
