Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson said he is likely to run for president again in 2016 and will be blunt as hell when he does it.
"I hope to," Johnson told The Huffington Post when asked whether he'd make another go of it.
The two-term governor, who ran first as a Republican and then as a libertarian in the 2012 cycle, gained early attention then for his support of marijuana legalization even as he tried to steer the conversation to his fiscally conservative credentials. That issue faded, however, as the campaign progressed, and Johnson ended up spending a good chunk of time complaining that debate organizers were excluding him from their forums.
With an estimated 15 or so Republicans likely to run for 2016, the stage will be packed once more. To get around that, he would run as a libertarian from the beginning of the campaign, said his spokesman, Joe Hunter. And he would be unfiltered when talking to voters, in a Bulworth type of "say whatever is on my mind" way. Read The Full Story
It comes at a time when the app-based services are growing in popularity.
Other livery services, such as limousine companies, have been asking Metro-Nashville to regulate the ridesharing companies the same way they are regulated.
If the proposal pushes through, rideshare companies and their drivers would have to be licensed by the Metro government and meet insurance requirements. Read The Full Story
Here’s a typical example of what’s being blacked-out:
This is a photo of a Ukrainian soldier guiding a truck-full of prisoners toward a ditch, to which the prisoners are then dragged one-by-one, and thrown in, and shot — then covered over with dirt after all the corpses (and perhaps some living bleeding survivors) are piled in it. Read The Full Story
Your “Children Will Be Fined” If You Fail To Sign Up For Obamacare: People Are Going To Be In for A Shock
Free and affordable health care just gets better and better.
In 2015 the government will be activating some new “incentives” embedded in the Affordable Care Act in an effort to get more people to sign up.
But, as is often the case when the government says one thing, they mean exactly the opposite. In this case, when they say incentive what they really mean is that you are going to be penalized if you fail to acquire government mandated health insurance. But not just you. Your children, who apparently no longer belong to you anyway based on a recent court ruling, will be fined for your failure to get them on the insurance rolls. Read The Full Story
South Carolina's gay marriage ban was ruled unconstitutional on Wednesday.
U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel issued the ruling in favor of Colleen Condon and Ann Bleckley, a same-sex couple who filed a lawsuit against the state when they were denied a marriage license after applying for one and paying the filing fee in early October.
Gergel granted the state's motion for a temporary stay on issuing gay marriage licenses until Nov. 20.
South Carolina voters passed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage by a wide majority in 2006. Last month, a U.S. appeals court overturned Virginia's gay marriage ban. Though the court also has jurisdiction over South Carolina, North Carolina and West Virginia, South Carolina was the only state in the circuit to continue denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples following the ruling.
