    NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A man was taken into custody Monday morning after police say he assaulted a sergeant with a caustic substance. According to investigators, the sergeant was standing outside the Dunkin Donuts on North Military Highway when a man walked up and threw something into his face. Police say the sergeant was not on a call at the time. A preliminary investigation found that the incident was unprovoked. They do not know yet what was thrown at the officer, only that it was a caustic substance, something that caused immediate burning to the sergeant’s eyes, face and neck....
  • Gun Owners of America Endorses Lee Bright for Senate

    Dear Friend of the Second Amendment: Just hours ago, I made an important decision. But that doesn’t mean it was a hard one. Today, I’m happy to announce Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund is endorsing Lee Bright for the United States Senate in South Carolina. Of course, incumbent Republican Senator Lindsey Graham’s betrayal of our Second Amendment rights is likely no surprise to you. But the incredible record Lee Bright has racked up as a State Senator in South Carolina may be. Senator Bright is the lead bill sponsor of Constitutional Carry and has long been the “go-to”...
  • Lindsey Graham challenger to raffle AR-15 (drawing attention to Graham's gun control votes!)

    01/24/2014 11:17:38 AM PST · by cotton1706 · 31 replies ^ | 1/24/14 | Tal Kopan
    One of the Republicans challenging Sen. Lindsey Graham for reelection is raffling off an AR-15 as part of his campaign. State Sen. Lee Bright announced the contest in an email to supporters Thursday, encouraging them to sign up online for the raffle scheduled for Feb. 15, and asking them to forward the email to friends and family and make a donation. Bright began the email with a reference to the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., in 2012, which spurred a resurgent but ultimately futile call for gun control in Congress. “In the wake of the...

    May 17, 2013: For the past 8 years, NASA astronomers have been monitoring the Moon for signs of explosions caused by meteoroids hitting the lunar surface. "Lunar meteor showers" have turned out to be more common than anyone expected, with hundreds of detectable impacts occurring every year. They've just seen the biggest explosion in the history of the program. "On March 17, 2013, an object about the size of a small boulder hit the lunar surface in Mare Imbrium," says Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office. "It exploded in a flash nearly 10 times as bright as anything we've...

    Obama's Chilling Crew   By Andrew | Tuesday, April 28, 2009 Why is there so little media investigation of the financing behind Barack Obama’s early political sponsor—and now convicted felon—Tony Rezko?      The dual US-Syrian citizen Rezko--who assisted Obama in the purchase of his Chicago mansion--was heavily funded by loans from Iraqi-British ex-Baathist billionaire Nadhmi Auchi.  According to testimony at Rezko’s trial, Obama met Auchi at an April 3, 2004 event at Rezko’s home during Obama’s 2004 US Senate campaign.  The Times of London reports discovering, “state documents in Illinois recording that Fintrade Services, a Panamanian company, lent...

    The Leftwing extremist group called 'The Southern Poverty Law Center' of Montgomery, Alabama has with one stroke of the pen smeared conservatives and Patriots in its new, infamous 'blacklist' it entitles, 'Meet the Patriots.' Among those it includes in the blacklist are some of the most reputable conservative Patriots in America today, such as U.S. Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), federal judge and Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano, U.S. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX), Gun Owners of America (GOA) chief Larry Pratt, Fox News personality Glenn Beck, and U.S. Representative Paul Broun (R-GA), among others.

    CQ Politics ^ | 10/6/2010 | John McArdle
    Rep. Bobby Bright (D) has received campaign donations from at least three of the 11 individuals indicted this week in a FBI bribery probe in Alabama while a fourth defendant was a key supporter during his 2008 Congressional campaign. Bright’s connection to some of the defendants date back to his previous service as mayor of Montgomery. The freshman Congressman is currently in the middle of a tough re-election fight in his battleground district that is a top target for national Republicans this cycle. Bright’s campaign said Wednesday that the past donations have nothing to do with the scheme to buy...

    It is 2,100 miles from the middle of the Wiregrass to San Francisco, but the Bay City's congresswoman has more to do with the outcome of Alabama's 2nd Congressional District race than any other person. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is at the center of television ads running in the Wiregrass against incumbent Democrat Bobby Bright by two outside organizations -- the National Republican Congressional Committee and the American Future Fund. One ad claims Bright has voted with Pelosi more than 7 out of 10 times since taking office almost two years ago. Ask Republican challenger Martha Roby which...
  • The Future's Not Bright For This Alabama Democrat

    In Alabama’s second district, local tea party activists held a “no-show townhall” with a mannequin of their Democratic Representative, Bobby Bright, because Bright refused to hold a town hall meeting himself. Then, the activists took a microphone and spoke to the mannequin. That’s not the kind of thing you want going into a vulnerable re-election cycle, as Bright is this November.“He’s a nice person. He has a wonderful staff. But I don’t think he is a good leader, at all,” said Becky Gerritson, a local tea party activist, who was present at the event. Gerritson complained that Bright, a Democrat...

    New York Magazine ^ | Jun 4, 2010 | Hanna Rosin
    What’s happening to the boy genius? Outside of fantasy fiction, he seems to be a shrinking breed. New York’s gifted-and-talented schools are overstocked with girls, a recent Times study found. In some gifted classrooms, three-fifths of the students are female. Yes, we know girls are smart and dutiful and hardworking, but this phenomenon confounds what’s long been considered the natural order. Could it really be that boys are now the struggling class, in need of help or affirmative action? Experts have been warning about the boy crisis for years, but the idea has never really taken hold—partly because it originated...
  • New Term For “Bright” Daniel Dennett, Richard Dawkins

    06/01/2010 4:17:01 AM PDT · by mattstat · 3 replies · 197+ views
    What is a “bright”? It is not, as is by now well known to contemporary thinkers, the opposite of a “dim”, a “dark”, or a “slavish, easily led idiot.” No. A “bright” is a “is a person who has a naturalistic worldview [one which] is free of supernatural and mystical elements.” Further, the “ethics and actions of a bright are based on a naturalistic worldview.” In plain words: an “atheist,” a label brights reject, for the same reason some feminists despise the term “history”—their enemies form part of the words. When this merry band of illuminators, these light-bringers to the...

    The most disruptive children are being plied with "indulgence and sentimentality" instead of firm discipline, it was claimed. Steve Patriarca blamed Gordon Brown's decision to create a new "Orwellian" Government department with duel responsibility for schools and social services. It meant education for the most able often came second best to the needs of problem pupils, he said. The comments will come as a huge embarrassment to the Government. Mr Patriarca led fee-paying William Hulme's Grammar School in Manchester when it was tempted out of the private sector by Labour in 2007. In a high-profile move, it axed parental fees...

    Dogs 'as bright as a 14-month-old child' By Tim Shipman, Sunday Telegraph Last Updated: 12:56am BST 10/06/2007 Dog lovers have long argued that their pets are practically human. Just how close they are to the truth is revealed by research showing that the creatures have the intelligence of a toddler. As with humans, they have the capacity to decide whether to copy others' behaviour, depending if it makes sense to do so. Researchers at the University of Vienna trained a female border collie called Guinness to use her paws to push a bar that released a treat, rather than using...

    APRIL SHOWERS bring summer power. That's the upside all of those gloomy, rainy days. Some of that water, collected as Sierra snow pack, will flow into rivers and generate hydropower. It's one of the factors responsible for this summer's adequate power outlook, state officials say. The positive outlook comes despite the possibility a pair of natural-gas-fired power plants in the East Bay may shut down soon. Last Thursday, Mirant Corp. gave 90 days notice to state regulators that it may have to shut down a unit at its Antioch plant and another one at its Pittsburg plant if the company...

    MARINE CORPS RECRUIT DEPOT SAN DIEGO (Jan. 13, 2006) -- The Marine Corps is a cornucopia of people. It's an array of black, white, brown, red and yellow, and its varied folk practice a plethora of religions. In the last year, two recruits, who happen to be brothers, came separately from perhaps the Corps' most uncommon origin - the Amish Order. "It's a very small world within the Amish community," said Pvt. Abner A. Miller, Platoon 1152. "Usually it's a 20-mile circle. We go as far as the horse and buggy take us." Miller grew up in a sheltered environment....
