OBAMACARE FACES FUNDING BLOCK IN U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES NEXT WEEK

_________________________________________________________________________

House seen blocking healthcare funds

Tue Feb 8, 2011
_________________________________________________________________________

(Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives is likely to vote to block funding for President Barack Obama's signature healthcare overhaul when it takes up a budget plan next week, House Republican Leader Eric Cantor said on Tuesday.
"I expect to see one way or other the product coming out of the House to speak to that and to preclude any funding to be used for that," Cantor said at a news conference, referring to an effort to block implementation of the health-care law.
House Republicans aim to pass a spending measure next week that would immediately cut at least $32 billion from the government's $3.7 trillion budget in an effort to trim budget deficits that could hit an estimated $1.5 trillion this year.
Details of the Republican spending-cut package will be made public on Thursday ahead of a wide-ranging debate on the House floor next week.
Cantor's office said the language blocking funding for the healthcare law is expected to be offered as an amendment during the House debate next week. Republicans, trying to make good on a campaign pledge for a more open legislative process, plan to debate a number of amendments to the spending bill.
Cantor said he expects the spending bill to include healthcare language when it leaves the House for Senate consideration.

Lindsay Lohan - Felony Grand Theft Charges to be Filed Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2011

_________________________________________________________________________
Lohan to be charged with grand theft over necklace

_________________________________________________________________________
Feb 8, 2010

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Prosecutors said Tuesday they plan to charge Lindsay Lohan with felony grand theft of a $2,500 necklace reported stolen from a jewelry store last month - the most serious count the actress has faced in more than three years of trouble with the law.
District Attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison said the charge will be filed Wednesday. Lohan, 24, is due in court for an arraignment on Wednesday afternoon.
Los Angeles police said Feb. 2 that Lohan was under investigation for taking a necklace from a Venice store later identified as Kamofie and Co. Detectives obtained a search warrant to try to retrieve the item from Lohan's home, but it was turned in to a police station before any search was made.
Police said they had no update on the case Tuesday and did not say whether the actress had made arrangements to turn herself in at court or at a police station.
Robison said bail would be decided by a judge.
Robison said bail would be decided by a judge.
A phone message to Lohan's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, was not immediately returned. Holley has previously denied any wrongdoing by Lohan.
"We vehemently deny these allegations and, if charges are filed, we will fight them in court, not in the press," Holley said in a statement released Saturday.

Cows Falling From Planes, Power of Urban Legend, N.Y.Times Story Correction

_________________________________________________________________________

N.Y.Times corrects report of cows falling from planes

BY STEVE PARKER 
  www.STLtoday.com  
Tuesday, February 8, 2011
_________________________________________________________________________

This past weekend, the New York Times published an eyebrow-raising correction of an article by a contributing writer that appeared in its Sunday New York Times Magazine. The correction:
An article on Jan. 16 about drilling for oil off the coast of Angola erroneously reported a story about cows falling from planes, as an example of risks in any engineering endeavor. No cows, smuggled or otherwise, ever fell from a plane into a Japanese fishing rig. The story is an urban legend, and versions of it have been reported in Scotland, Germany, Russia and other locations.

Opponents Speak Against Voter ID Proposal in House

_________________________________________________________________________

Opponents rail against Voter ID proposal in House

By TONY MESSENGER  
www.STLtoday.com 
Tuesday, February 8, 2011
_________________________________________________________________________

Voter ID laws deal with voter impersonation fraud, testified Ron Berry of the Secretary of State's office, and there hasn't been a single case of that type of voter fraud in the state, he said.

JEFFERSON CITY • A House hearing on Republican-sponsored voter identification legislation this morning had a deja vu feeling to it.
Just as in a couple of weeks ago in the Senate, not a single person spoke in favor of the proposal to require voters to show a photo ID at polls. But a plethora of groups opposed the legislation, arguing that requiring photo identification is an unconstitutional infringement of Missourians' fundamental right to vote.
The legislation, which already passed a Senate committee, is a priority of Republicans this year, and so the lack of testimony in favor of it won't get in the way of it moving quickly through the legislative session.
But opponents were quick to point to the lack of voices clamoring for the bill in criticizing it.
"Just what is it we are trying to achieve?" asked AARP's Ron Sergent, who testified against the bill. "We cannot risk disenfranchisement of the most vulnerable among us to provide comfort to the most powerful."
Republicans who back the bill suggest it is needed to ensure that there is no voter fraud in Missouri, and they frequently refer to various cases of voter registration fraud as an example.
But voter ID laws deal with voter impersonation fraud, testified Ron Berry of the Secretary of State's office, and there hasn't been a single case of that type of voter fraud in the state, he said.
State Rep. Stanley Cox, R-Sedalia, was combative in his questioning of Berry during a give-and-take during the House hearing. Cox has been pushing the Voter ID bill for years. This year, he is sponsoring a joint resolution that would allow voters to decide whether they want to amend the state constitution to allow voter identification. A companion bill by state Rep. John Diehl, R-Town and Country, would implement the Voter ID law and also allow for four days of early voting in Missouri.

MORGAN COUNTY, MO -- Update: Monday, Feb. 7 at 6:00 p.m.:
Parents of students on the bus are telling us a very different story about what happened on the school bus accident.

Parents said their children were telling the bus driver that the children were next to the bus and he did not stop for them. Parents also said this is not the first time they have had problems with the bus driver. One parent said he has contacted the school district four times about the conduct of the bus driver.

Update: Monday, Feb. 7 at 4:20 p.m.:
KRCG is trying to find out what happened at the Laurie Mall this morning when two kids were struck by a bus.

The Morgan County School District said the brother and sister were running along-side the bus. When the bus circled into the parking lot, the school district said the kids were struck.

Laurie Police Chief Shane Edwards said witnesses reported that the children were close to the bus and the driver did not see them when he circled back into the lot. He said the sister was pulled under the bus and the brother was trying to pull her from underneath the bus when his leg got underneath the tire.

Edwards said both children have broken legs as a result of the incident and that the boy's leg will require surgery and ongiong treatment.

He said in a release that the boy is a hero and should be commended for his efforts to save his sister.

Missouri State Highway Patrol’s New Online Tool Will Provide Most Criminal History Checks In Seconds

Colonel Ron Replogle, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, announced today the launch of a Web site that will allow the public to obtain name-based open record criminal background checks in a matter of seconds. Previously, record check requests that were mailed to the Missouri State Highway Patrol took two to four weeks to complete.

“This is another example of the Patrol using technology to more efficiently and conveniently serve the public,” said Colonel Replogle. Colonel Replogle noted that in October, the Patrol launched an e-mail alert system that allows Missourians to sign up for and automatically receive notifications regarding registered sexual offenders living or working in their area.

The criminal history check Web site, called the Missouri Automated Criminal History Site (MACHS), can be found at www.machs.mshp.dps.mo.gov or can also be accessed by going to the MSHP’s Web site, www.mshp.dps.mo.gov, and clicking on “Background Checks” in the red information bar at the top of the main page. Then click on the link to MACHS from the Background Check Page of the MSHP Web site.

MACHS allows anyone to create a record check account. Once an account is created, users may submit the name, date of birth, and/or social security number of a person and receive all Missouri open record criminal history information related to the individual.

The same $10 fee for each record check that is charged for mail-in and in-person records checks will apply online, along with a convenience charge for each request. The convenience charge is $1.00 for up to three record checks. For four or more record checks, the convenience charge is a percentage of the total transaction amount. The convenience charge is paid to a vendor for processing credit card payments.


Electronic Payment Services (Credit and Debit Cards):
Transaction Dollar Amount Processing Fee

$0-$33 - $1.00
$33.01-$100 - 3.00% of purchase amount
$100.01-$250 - 2.95% of purchase amount
$250.01-$500 - 2.85% of purchase amount
$500.01-$750 - 2.85% of purchase amount
$750.01-$1000 - 2.80% of purchase amount
$1000.01-$1500 - 2.75% of purchase amount
$1500.01-$2000 - 2.70% of purchase amount
$2000.01-and up - 2.60% of purchase amount

All completed information will be sent electronically to the user’s account in Adobe PDF format and can be saved or printed. The vast majority of requests made through MACHS should be completed and sent to the user within seconds. However, a small number of requests may take up to five business days to complete when Patrol employees must research a court disposition or determine whether a record is open or closed.

Missourians who do not have Internet access can continue to request record checks by mailing the requests to the Missouri State Highway Patrol Criminal Justice Information Services Division, P.O. Box 9500, Jefferson City, MO 65102. Records requests can also be made in-person at the Criminal Justice Information Services Division’s public window at the Missouri State Highway Patrol General Headquarters, 1510 East Elm Street, Jefferson City, MO 65102. In-person records checks can generally be processed within 30 minutes.

Citizens with questions about MACHS should call the Patrol’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division at 573-526-6312 or e-mail MACHS@mshp.dps.mo.gov.

George W. Bush Threatened with War Crimes, Arrest Unlikly, Safe in U.S.

George W. Bush Threatened with War Crimes Arrest

February 8, 2011

_________________________________________________________________________

Human rights groups are demanding the former U.S. president be arrested for his authorization of torture.

BY TRACY PFEIFFER

You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy


He may have once been the most powerful man in the world, but George W. Bush’s world has just gotten a little smaller.

Dubya recently canceled a speaking engagement in Geneva, Switzerland, citing security concerns -- but some analysts believe it’s more about the horde of human rights groups calling for his arrest and prosecution on war crime charges. (Video: RT)

A writer for Salon explains, this visit wouldn’t have just run-of-the-mill protesters -- New York’s Center for Constitutional Rights drew up a 25-hundred page complaint against the former U.S. president and were prepared to take advantage of the speech’s location because...

“...Switzerland, as a party to the UN Convention against Torture, is obligated to investigate Bush for potential prosecution.”

Swiss officials made no indication they planned to arrest the former U.S. president, but pressure for his prosecution has been mounting since he admitted he approved waterboarding interrogation subjects.

Fmr President GEORGE W. BUSH: “I was charged with protecting America, and those decisions I made were necessary.” (NBC)

A blogger for dagblog says, he’s all for Bush’s arrest, noting America shouldn’t receive quote- “special privileges in the world.”

“Saddam Hussein committed some of his worst crimes while he was a U.S. client.  He was hanged on Youtube. … We don't often respect sovereigns when they offend our interests.  Maybe we shouldn't expect similar immunity for our own leaders when they head out into the wider world.”

But a writer for the conservative website American Thinker takes the political route, saying these rights groups have bigger fish to fry.

“Funny how leftists never seem to get around to calling for legal action against people like … Iran's Ahmadinejad whose trips to New York and elsewhere never elicit calls for that loony's arrest for human rights violations that sicken anyone with an ounce of decency.”

Yet despite all the ruckus, a correspondent for RT says it’s unlikely the former U.S. president will ever be prosecuted
