Reward yourself with peace, quiet and honesty.

States that embraced Obamacare — which presumably were more committed to public health in the first place — had lower uninsurance rates to start with and saw bigger declines. The states that resisted were the ones with the biggest uninsurance problems to start with and saw only token declines [in the number of people without health insurance]. In fact, the decline in states that embraced Obamacare was more than triple that in the other states, 2.8 percent vs. 0.8 percent.

One way or another, a state is paying for health care. Either through expanded coverage, or through emergency room visits. 

It comes down to giving citizens peace of mind, reducing anxiety and mental stress. Red States that refuse Obamacare are refusing to admit the experience of good health is a positive. They see good health through a “winners and losers” mindset. Losers always keep losing, thus the villain is established in their GOP narrative.

Police are experimenting with “live Google Earth” surveillance

Is this next-level law enforcement or another step towards Big Brother?

That is the question coming out of Los Angeles, where for the past year, the city’s police department has been experimenting with new, state-of-the-art surveillance technology. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, with the help of an Ohio company called Persistent Surveillance Systems, rolled out a test in Compton — flying small civilian aircraft outfitted with high-powered cameras that can record video in real-time.

Like something straight out of a sci-fi flick, the cameras allow the police to track suspects from the air, pause video, rewind and fast forward — essentially creating a live-updated version of Google Earth.

Jeff Danziger: Three Branches of Government
A hundred years ago they used to put on a white sheet and use a bloodhound against Negroes. Today they have taken off the white sheet and put on police uniforms and traded in the bloodhounds for police dogs, and they’re still doing the same thing.

Iran mother spares life of son’s killer in dramatic turn of events

An Iranian mother spared the life of her son’s convicted murderer with an emotional slap in the face as he awaited execution with the noose around his neck, a newspaper reported Thursday. The dramatic climax followed a rare public campaign to save the life of Balal, who at 19 killed another young man, Abdollah Hosseinzadeh, in a street fight with a knife back in 2007. (AFP)
