I seem to have been caught by some microorganism, so no witty commentary

while my head is stuffed and running both.  So:
From the People's Republic of Seattle, as Michael Williamson puts it, "We don't spy on you. We contract that out so it's not Big Brother."

For the second time in just over a year, one East Providence police chief is in hot water for infringing on citizens’ Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. 

The Rhode Island Supreme Court has issued an order faulting Chief Christopher J. Parella for improperly denying residents licenses to carry concealed weapons and failing to abide by the court’s previous ruling.
There ought to be some criminal charge for knowingly violating the court's order that way, not to mention they should sue his ass off.

A 62-year-old SpecOps vet working with the Kurds.
The line they oversee straddles the ISIS corridor to Syria, and is a key supply route to reinforce Mosul with both men and equipment. Yet even as the long-awaited move to retake Mosul is underway, the western front has been largely unguarded by the coalition of Iraqi army, Kurdish forces, Shia militia and U.S. advisersworking together against ISIS.

“Conventional military wisdom says you encircle your enemy and defeat him," Shumock said. "For some reason, they’ve left the western side of Mosul all the way to Syria open, and, as the general told you, we see 500 vehicles moving every day, resupplying Mosul and Tal Afar. And there’s nothing we can do.”
Gee, I wonder why...

Obamacare: working as planned and screwing people so they'll plead for the .gov to do 'something more'.

Gangster government
Federal Election Commissioner Ann Ravel wished to step down until she met with President Barack Obama in early 2016, who persuaded her to stay on board through the November election in return for two favors, a senior federal government official has told The Daily Caller.

Ravel, a Democrat, told the senior government official about the arrangement in private and even showed the official pictures of her and Obama in The White House. The official told TheDC Ravel had wished to step down and move back to California before the Jan. 28 White House meeting. Obama told Ravel she could move back and do most of her work from California and that she would be supported in her effort to replace California Attorney General Kamala Harris as Attorney General if Harris were to win her Senate election.

Right now, Rolling Stone and Erdely are feeling like Gawker, and they deserve every bit of it.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I've got to blow my nose with about half a box of keenex.

Blue shop towels.

If out of the box they are too scratchy for you, run 'em though the wash. Soft, durable and a hell of a lot less likely to blow-though than kleenex.
