Massachusetts has decided to go at rationing health care. On the scheme that, last I heard Mitt Romney still defends. Just about guarantee he'll try for the Presidency again, and we should ram this down his throat. Or up his ass. Or whatever will get the attention of these morons, those both in and out of the Stupid Party.

The Oklahoma City PD is buying a new vehicle:
Oklahoma City police figure it's time to replace the 1980 Peacekeeper armoed vehicle they've used for decades. Department leaders are asking the city council for approval to buy a Lenco BearCat (http://www.swattrucks.com/products.htm) that is a bulletproof vehicle capable of carrying a dozen officers.
The estimated cost, according to city documents is $279,437 and the Police department will use Asset Forefeiture money. In order words, money from cars and other items seized during drug raids will help finance the purchase.
The Lenco BearCat will be equipped with a thermal imaging camera system to locate persons during the dark.

Devastation there was, but the West got Marshall Aid to rebuild while Stalin forbade the East Germans from accepting it, while he moved all possible plant and equipment from the GDR to the Soviet Union as reparations."
