GAO: Missile Site Costs Likely to Rise
08-14-2009  •  Washington Post 

The cost of building and operating the controversial U.S. ballistic missile sites in Europe could substantially exceed the original estimate of more than $4 billion, the Government Accountability Office has told Congress.

The Defense Department's original estimate of $837 million for constructing the sites in Poland and the Czech Republic "did not fully account for the cost of power and utilities at the sites, among other things," the GAO said.

Colonial BancGroup and Pennsylvania thrift shut
08-14-2009  •  www.miamiherald.com 

WASHINGTON (AP) - Regulators on Friday shut down Colonial BancGroup Inc., a big lender in real estate development that marked the biggest U.S. bank failure this year, and a small bank in Pennsylvania.

The closures boosted to 74 the number of federally insured banks that have failed in 2009.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was appointed receiver of Montgomery, Ala.-based Colonial, with about $25 billion in assets, and Dwelling House Savings and Loan Association, located in Pittsburgh. The agency approved the sale of Colonial's $20 billion in deposits and about $22 billion of its assets to BB&T Corp., which is based in Winston-Salem, N.C. The failed bank's 346 branches in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Texas will reopen at the normal times starting on Saturday as offices of BB&T, the FDIC said.

In Afghanistan, Caught Between U.S., Taliban
08-14-2009  •  Washington Post 
Afghan villagers, many of whom fled the Marines' advance, say they feel caught in a tug of war between U.S. forces and the Taliban, and are fearful of both. The Afghans, primarily illiterate farmers who tend livestock and crops in the irrigated lands alongside the Helmand River, often say they simply want to be left in peace.

For years, the question of what constitutes fair and appropriate compensation for top business executives has been debated by legislators, corporate directors and activist shareholders.

Refusing to have bag searched in NYC South Ferry subway station
08-14-2009  •  Blog of Bile video 

Note they are enforcing a law they don’t know. Searching bags and refusing people entry “because it says right on the sign.” Also note that they don’t care if I go to another station.

While talking with the three officers the one to the left and right of center stared at pins on my bookbag. These includes “Taxation is Theft”, “This is what an average, responsible gun-owner looks like”, a Ron Paul 2008 pin, Ron Paul patch, “Don’t Tread On Me: Live Free or Die” patch, and “I Do Not Consent To Being Searched” and then the 4th Amendment.

Cross-Examining Forensics - by Radley Balko
08-14-2009  •  Reason magazine 
The U.S. Supreme Court decided in Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts that the Sixth Amendment's Confrontation Clause requires forensic experts whose reports are admitted into evidence to be made available for cross-examination. You might have already thought that you had the right to challenge a witness who offers powerful evidence of your guilt. But until six weeks ago, that wasn't the case in many states.

He said she was speeding. She denied it and got out of the van. He told her to get back in. She did, then he ordered her back out.

He yanked her out by the arm, knocked her down with two Taser shots and charged her with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. His rationale on the disorderly conduct charge: She obstructed traffic when she got out of the van. The speeding accusation: going 50 mph in a 45-mph zone.

I am sure by now you have all heard of the "Bank Holiday's" being planned by our foreign embassies. Now comes this very disturbing news (HT The Market Ticker)... One Of Three Down; Is The FDIC Still Solvent? Here we go! Colonial, Alabama’s second-largest bank, is being closed by regulators today, the person said, becoming the largest U.S. bank failure of 2009 after an expansion into Florida saddled the lender with more than $1.7 billion in soured real-estate loans. The FDIC usually waits until the close of business Friday; they must have had a slight problem with withdrawals...... Left unsaid is what's going to happen to the FDIC deposit insurance fund on this one - my guess is that it will be ugly, as these guys were up to their necks in Florida on development projects that went bad. The "value" of that paper may be very close to zero; if the FDIC avoids doing one of their 40% loss deals I will be quite surprised. A 40% loss on this one would, if my m  Read Full Story

The Complete Armory What Should You Have?
08-14-2009  •  Officer.com 
Recently my son was home on an extended weekend after a deployment with the Marine Corps and we got into a discussion about what guns we'd like to have in our home armory. The discussion soon evolved to be more about what someone SHOULD have versus what they WANT to have. This bore further examination and, because it's easier to keep track of lists on paper, I soon found myself writing out a list of weapons we felt were necessary. Bear in mind, this isn't a "soldier" list, or a "police" list; in our minds, this is an American Citizen list.  Read Full Story
