Rampant looting after hurricane Sandy

.  Just... wow.

The liberal mentality is never on more  than when Obama’s base has an opportunity to “spread the wealth around”:

A wave a looters followed the Sandy storm surge in Coney Island, creating a double-whammy for business owners trying to pick up the obliterated pieces.

The thieves started down Mermaid Avenue Tuesday morning as the chest-high water receded, turning the seaside community known for its hotdogs and tourist attractions into a lawless free-for-all.

“People were running in and out of Rent-A-Center carrying these big flat screens. They were holding on tight,” said witness Aisha John, 20. “I couldn’t understand how someone could steal a big TV in broad daylight, but no one cared.”

Why should anyone care? Obama has stolen $trillions from our children and grandchildren who will be left to pay off the deficit, yet many people don’t care enough to vote against him.

As with the Democrat Party, the theft is justified with the vile criminal ideology of the Left:

“Look, they’ve been looting our wallets for too long,” said a young male who claimed he helped himself to a TV at the Rent-A-Center.

Good thing Mayor for Life Bloomberg made the city safe by only allowing criminals to have guns.

First genetically modified babies born in the U.S.

When , it cannot not end well...

The world's first genetically modified humans have been created, it was revealed last night.

The disclosure that 30 healthy babies were born after a series of experiments in the United States provoked another furious debate about ethics.

So far, two of the babies have been tested and have been found to contain genes from three 'parents'.

Fifteen of the children were born in the past three years as a result of one experimental programme at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science of St Barnabas in New Jersey.

The babies were born to women who had problems conceiving. Extra genes from a female donor were inserted into their eggs before they were fertilised in an attempt to enable them to conceive.

Genetic fingerprint tests on two one-year- old children confirm that they have inherited DNA from three adults --two women and one man.

The fact that the children have inherited the extra genes and incorporated them into their 'germline' means that they will, in turn, be able to pass them on to their own offspring.

Altering the human germline - in effect tinkering with the very make-up of our species - is a technique shunned by the vast majority of the world's scientists.

This seems to be a clear-cut example of governmental abuse of power to me.  Unfortunately, there is no way for Mr. Ingram to recover his losses.

Is collecting rainwater a crime? It is in some states.

This story caught my eye because rainwater collection is something we've thought of setting up to supplement our garden.  It made me wonder if in Idaho, where there are water rights laws, if capturing rainwater would be a problem.  As it turns out, collecting rainwater on your own property is so long as it does not cause "injury" to the exising, legal water rights of others (state-permitted users).  " target="_blank">Other states are not the same.

States such as Utah, Colorado and Washington (more on the various laws later) have had laws on the books limiting property owners from collecting the water falling on their own homes and land since officials say the rain belongs to someone else.

In 2008, Mark Miller of Mark Miller Toyota in Utah, found out some startling information.

In order to make his dealership more environmentally friendly, Miller began collecting rainwater on top of his building in cisterns in order to wash cars with it.

However, state officials said without a valid water right, Miller could not legally divert rainwater.

“I was surprised, we thought it was our water,” Miller said in a news interview.

Department of Labor: "Let's outlaw children working on family farms!" America: "Bite me."

Farming is good stuff, and kids who get involved learn responsibility, work ethics, and a greater appreciation for where their food comes from.  While we don't have a farm in the traditional sense, we do keep chickens, raise fish, and have a garden.  It'd be shame if the kids weren't allowed to contriute.  The DOL proposed a change last week that would have done just that for larger operations.  The has the story and followup:

The Department of Labor is poised to put the finishing touches on a rule that would apply child labor laws to children working on family farms, prohibiting them from performing a list of jobs on their own families’ land.

Under the rules, most children under 18 could no longer work “in the storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials.”

“Prohibited places of employment,” a Department press release read, “would include country grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feed lots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and livestock auctions.”
