You just knew this was coming fast towards this conclusion. The Attorney General of the USA, Eric Holder, a buck ofama appointee, has declared that yes, our government can use drone strikes in America against Americans!
Attorney General Eric Holder can imagine a scenario in which it would be constitutional to carry out a drone strike against an American on American soil, he wrote in a letter to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.
“It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States,” Holder replied in a letter yesterday to Paul’s question about whether Obama “has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and without trial.”
Paul condemned the idea. “The U.S. Attorney General’s refusal to rule out the possibility of drone strikes on American citizens and on American soil is more than frightening – it is an affront the Constitutional due process rights of all Americans,” he said in a statement.

And buck ofama being petty as hell, and wanting to push his powers out to tell Americans that sequester is so bad, has now cancelled all tours of the white house. Wonder though, does this mean I can’t get in even if I give him five hundred thousand dollars?
The White House is canceling tours of the president’s famous abode starting next week, saying the budget cuts that went into effect last week are to blame.
A phone recording on the call line for White House visitors informs callers that White House tours will be canceled, starting this weekend.
“Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House tours will be canceled effective Saturday March 9th, 2013 until further notice,” the recording says. “Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours. We very much regret having to take this action particularly during the popular spring touring season.”
The move, which Republicans paint as a publicity stunt, prompted at least one proposed legislative fix from a GOP congressman Tuesday.
In an amendment to a GOP stopgap budget bill headed to the floor later this week, Rep. Louis Gohmert, R-Texas, suggested that no funds from the bill be used “to transport the President to or from a golf course until public tours of the White House resume.”

This is Peanut the turtle, shortly after being found in Missouri in 1993. She was taken to to a zoo in St. Louis where the six-pack ring was removed.
It seems that she was trapped in the plastic ring as a young turtle and was unable to free herself. Subsequently her shell moulded itself to the plastic ring and she grew in the strange shape you see here.
Unfortunately the damage is permanent, but peanut is expected to live a long life and today she serves as a mascot for the fight against beach littering.
Please, always remember to clean up after yourself at the beach.

WTH? These are available? Where?
Newly proposed federal regulations aimed at the snack foods and drinks served in the nation’s schools could come with a hefty price tag.
The American Action Forum estimates the regulations, which include caps on serving sizes and calorie counts, will cost schools $127 million and require more than 926,000 hours of paperwork.
Sam Batkins, director of regulatory policy at the institute, says the proposals amount to yet another unfunded federal mandate for state and local governments, “at a time when many of their budgets are still struggling.”
The Food and Nutrition Service regulations would be administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which says schools in at least 39 states already have some kind of snack food standards in place. Thousands of schools “have already taken voluntary steps towards meeting the proposed standards,” the department said, adding that many of the schools have started making the changes with little or no impact to their revenue.
The new proposals come as a part of a second wave of regulations stemming from the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Administrators are still working to comply with a number of other mandates that have significantly changed school food options in recent years. They include a requirement that each student take a serving of fruit or vegetable as part of their lunch or the federal government may not reimburse the cost — driving up prices for both students and school districts.
But getting the healthier fare onto kids’ lunch trays doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ll actually consume the food. One West Philadelphia High School student told a local reporter that kids use the servings to play “food basketball,” simply tossing away the fruit placed on their tray.
“Like, if you have an orange or an apple, you take it, and you have a trash can, shoot it in the trash can and see if you can make it,” the student said.

Researchers at UCLA are making breakthroughs in superconductor technology, and by accident have created a supercapacitor battery. You may be asking yourself, “what is a supercapacitor battery?” and that’s a great question.
Short answer: it’s a huge leap in battery tech. Once this technology matures, it’s likely to replace batteries as we know them today. Imagine charging your phone in ten seconds, or charging an electric car in the time it takes to run into the Circle K for an ICEE and a slim-jim.
The other benefit is that they’re made of carbon, so even though Al Gore will probably want to tax them, these new batteries will be completely bio-degradable.

How about a change? Just for now. Maybe this will be a regular also?
