    A Chattanooga, Tennessee mom is suing Hamilton County Schools after it was discovered that Apison Elementary School was strip-searching her five-year-old special needs daughter on a daily basis without her consent. The young girl with special needs was diagnosed with congenital herpes while attending school, and despite being given consent to return to school by a doctor, school officials decided that they needed to check to see if the child had legions. So, for a few weeks, a school nurse would check the young girl’s body to make sure there weren’t any new outbreaks. The girl’s mother, Brandy Madden, says...
  • Campaigns lawyered up for election overtime chance

    MIAMI — Legions of lawyers are ready to enter the fray in case Election Day turns on a legal challenge. One nightmare scenario would be for the results in a battleground state like Florida or Ohio to be too close to call, with thousands of absentee or provisional ballots yet to be counted. The key, experts say, is whether the difference in votes between the two candidates is within what's known as the "margin of litigation" — that is, the number of outstanding votes must be much greater than the margin separating Obama and Romney when the smoke clears. And,...

    Extracted from "De Re Militari" Book III "Dispositions for Action" | 390 A.D [translation published 1767] | Flavius Vegetius Renatus [Translation by Lt John Clarke]
    GENERAL MAXIMSIt is the nature of war that what is beneficial to you is detrimental to the enemy and what is of service to him always hurts you. It is therefore a maxim never to do, or to omit doing, anything as a consequence of his actions, but to consult invariably your own interest only. And you depart from this interest whenever you imitate such measures as he pursues for his benefit. For the same reason it would be wrong for him to follow such steps as you take for your advantage. The more your troops have been accustomed to...

    WASHINGTON - Five times as many registered Democrats as Republicans live in Maryland, yet the latest -- please God, let it be the last -- champion of the Kennedy clan went down to crushing defeat in the race for governor on Tuesday. In Massachusetts, another supposed liberal stronghold, the Republicans enjoyed a similarly comfortable gubernatorial upset. The picture was replicated across the U.S. political landscape. The Globe and Mail's columnist, Marcus Gee, would have you believe that Tuesday's Republican roll-up constituted a modest victory, but he must be the only observer of the American political scene who does. The truth...
