Idaho court: No constitutional right to share your city water with non-paying neighbor

I can't agree with this decision.  If I wanted to water my neighbor's lawn, fill their pool, or put out a grass fire with water that I get billed and pay for, I should be able to do that.  It is a separate issue that, in this case, the neighbor in question was not paying an outstanding debt to the water company.

Would the sharer have also been fined if his neighbor had come over to his house to get a drink or do their laundry?  What if they had gone to the YMCA to shower and the coin-op laundromat? Would they also be liable?  At :

A Spirit Lake man has lost a court appeal challenging a city fine he received for connecting his neighbor to his city water service via a hose, after the neighbor had been cut off for non-payment. Michael Freitas charged that the city couldn't constitutionally bar him from making a charitable gift of the water to his neighbor by running a hose across the alley. But the Idaho Court of Appeals, in a unanimous decision, upheld an earlier Kootenai County jury verdict that left Freitas with a $500 fine.

Black man driving white wife to work has car seized by Liberal NYC for “illegal cab service”

Not only ridiculous, but chock full of racial profiling. :

Married couple Dan Keys Jr., 66, and Symone Palermo, 53 were recently investigated by a New York City government agency because Dan was under suspicion of running an illegal cab service.

The incident unfolded when Keys, 66, dropped off Palermo at a Flushing mall, where she works in a Bob’s Discount Furniture store, according to legal documents.

He was then approached by TLC employees who charged that his passenger had left the back seat, which meant he was providing her an illegal ride.

They falsely claimed “the white female passenger exchanged money and that the passenger had confirmed that the Town Car was being operated as a taxi,” according to the lawsuit filed last week in Queens Supreme Court.

“Upon information, the only reason that the TLC agents stopped Keys was because they observed an African-American male driving what they thought to be a white female,” court papers charged.

They added that Palermo, 53 — who is biracial — then returned to the car and explained she is the driver’s wife.

But the Bayside couple’s explanations fell on deaf ears.

They both received summonses — the wife got one as the registered owner of the car — and the agents allegedly continued the charade to cover up their mistake.

Georgia To Seize Dormant Bank Accounts: "Government is Going to Grab it"

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have."  From :

You’re probably thinking that inflationary devaluation of your savings or paying negative interest rates on cash deposits is about as far as government is willing to go in its efforts to keep funding its debt-laden endeavors. They certainly wouldn’t consider touching the bank accounts of hard working Americans. Only the Europeans have the audacity to go after the savings of the average depositor.

Well, the Europeans and apparently now the Georgians, too. And we’re not talking about the western backed country that went to war with Russia in recent years.

We’re talking about the U.S. state that claims “Wisdom, Justice, Moderation” as its motto.

According to Simon Black at , the State of Georgia has taken the unprecedented step of lowering the threshold on inactive or dormant bank accounts to just twelve months. What that means to average Georgians is that if you fail to utilize your account within one year your deposited funds will be confiscated by the state.

Ammunition for trade: bartering instead of cash

When a man in rural upstate New York recently had central air-conditioning installed in his home, he offered an unusual method of payment for the job.

“The owner said, ‘My father just passed away and left me some guns and ammunition,’” recalls a 63-year-old electrician named Richard, who offered only his first name. “The guy gave me 3,000 rounds of 9-mm ammunition.” The bullets are worth around . “After that, I added it to my business card that I accept cash or bartered items.”

Idaho senate votes to nullify any new federal gun control measures

From :

A proposed Idaho bill would nullify future federal gun laws by prohibiting state enforcement of any federal act relating to personal firearms, a firearm accessories or ammunition. It passed the state senate on Wednesday by a vote of 34-0, with one member not voting.

Introduced by the State Affairs Committee, the Idaho Federal Firearm, Magazine and Register Ban Enforcement Act, or , would

“protect Idaho law enforcement officers from being directed, through federal executive orders, agency orders, statutes, laws, rules, or regulations enacted or promulgated on or after the effective date of this act, to violate their oath of office and Idaho citizens’ rights under Section 11, Article I, of the Constitution of the State of Idaho.”

Robbery

. It is that quiet time before the rush of Mom's and Dad's looking for their early morning caffeine jolt, and hours before the hipsters crawl out of bed to write poetry on the Mac Books their parents bought for them.

This is the time, where a Starbucks employee can drink his or her first cup of Joe, and brace themselves for the day to come.

One employee, let's call her Sarah, ran her eye over the new 'No Guns Allowed' sign hanging in the window. 'Surely, that will keep the guns out.' She thought to herself. A man dressed all in black sauntered up to the counter. He ordered a coffee, but already seemed to have the caffeine shakes. Sarah eyed him suspiciously.

When Sarah went to ring up the purchase at the cash register, the man jumped over the counter and produced a silver handgun in his right hand. 'Hey! Didn't you read the sign?' She yelled angrily at the gun brandishing villain.
