VIDEO: Officer Darren Wilson: ‘All I wanted to do is live’

I'm glad officer Wilson appeared on a "liberal lamestream media" (Sarah Palin's words) outlet, rather than Fox News, which would have injected more politics into the controversy.

VIDEO: Officer Darren Wilson: ‘All I wanted to do is live’

I believe officer Wilson's account and his motivation for taking the actions that he did. I'm glad we were finally able to hear his side of the story directly from him to observe his attitude, demeanor, and body language. I'm convinced he's is not one of those out-of-control violence prone cops, as some protesters have tried to portray him. The grand jury considered all the testimony in light of the physical evidence and made the right decision.

Broun bill would ensure federal research on low-dose radiation

So the soon-to-be ex-Congressman, who opposed Obamacare and its individual mandate, is now sponsoring a bill that forces taxpayers to continue paying into a research program that has been going on for 15 years, yet his bill offers no additional sources of revenue to fund it. Is he the same cloun who criticized the Obama administration for its deficit spending and was willing to shutdown the gubbermint over it?

Florida crowd cheers comedy from embattled Cosby

‘Law & Order: SVU’ Actress Michelle Hurd Accuses Bill Cosby of Inappropriate Touching

Hurd's story begins when she was doing stand-in work on "The Cosby Show." According to the actress, her relationship with Cosby started out innocently enough, with the two eating lunch together every day in his dressing room. The sitcom star then escalated it through what Hurd remembered as "weird acting exercises [where] he would move his hands up and down my body."

"I was instructed to NEVER tell anyone what we did together," she wrote, explaining that Cosby told her others would be jealous.

"I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened," Hurd continued. "At that point my own red flags went off and I told him, 'No, I'll just come to work tomorrow with my hair straightened.'"

House intel panel debunks many Benghazi theories

"...there was no intelligence failure, no delay in sending a CIA rescue team, no missed opportunity for a military rescue, and no evidence the CIA was covertly shipping arms from Libya to Syria."

THESE CONCLUSIONS COME AS A RESULT OF AN EXTENSIVE INVESTIGATION BY THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE, CHAIRED BY REPUBLICAN MIKE ROGERS.

However I'm sure Fox News and the rightwing media pundits will downplay or ignore this story, or otherwise question its conclusions by using innuendo and rhetoric rather than facts and analytics.

EXCLUSIVE: Another actress accuses Bill Cosby of sexual assault in Las Vegas hotel

Model-actress Angela Leslie is the eighth woman to come forward accusing Cosby of sexual harassment or worse. She tells the Daily News he plied her with alcohol, may have tried to drug her and forced her to fondle him in the freaky scene in a luxury suite in 1992.

House GOP sues Obama administration on health law

It accuses Obama of unlawfully delaying the 2010 health care law's requirement that many employers provide health care coverage for workers.

How is it the Speaker wants the provisions of the ACA be strictly enforced, yet he and McConnell say they will do anything and everything to keep it from being enforceable, such as denying funding? What am I missing here besides the double talk and the hypocrisy?

Obama spurns GOP with expansive immigration orders

@tgb: The targeted approach is just a series of ad hoc band aids that doesn't address the problem in a coordinated way. It's like not reforming income taxation as a whole but applying patches to the tax code willy-nilly per to the wishes of special interests.

Gurley inspires House bill to fine brokers endangering player eligibility

@random_name: I don't know how you get "liberal approach" out of this proposed bill, when it's being driven by Republicans. I believe liberals would rather the gubbermint stay out of the lives of adults engaging in legal activities. Don't conservatives abhor the idea of gubbermint assuming a nanny role over adults?

Obama spurns GOP with expansive immigration orders

Speaker Boehner has refused to bring the comprehensive Senate immigration bill, passed with bipartisan support (68 to 32), to the House floor for an up/down vote. He has chosen instead to let it languish on his desk for a year and a half, because he knows there are enough votes in the House to pass it over the objections of Republican leaders. Boehner has even refused to engage in negotiations over the Senate bill. Now tell me who's been assuming the role of an emperor.

Serial Killers & Animal Abuse

Many studies in psychology, sociology, and criminology during the last 25 years demonstrate that violent offenders frequently have childhood and adolescent histories of serious and repeated animal cruelty. The FBI has recognized this connection since the 1970s, when its analysis of the lives of serial killers suggested that most had killed or tortured animals as children. Other research shows consistent patterns of animal cruelty among perpetrators of more common forms of violence, including child abuse, spouse abuse and elder abuse.

@hopalongcassidy: I guess that means you wouldn't have any problem watching reruns of Seventh Heaven, knowing full well the leading role of the pastor and father was portrayed by an actor who had admitted to exposing himself to and molesting multiple teenage girls. Sorry, I wouldn't be able to dissociate myself from reality to that degree. Also keep in mind that reruns produce income aka residuals for the performers, so by watching you are supporting them financially.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
