According to NBC affiliate KXAS-TV, drivers on a busy Ft. Worth street were recently stopped at a police roadblock and asked for samples of their breath, saliva, and even blood. Off-duty members of the Ft. Worth police department helped staff of the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTA) with the roadblock, and even though giving up a DNA sample was "voluntary," being stopped was not, and drivers who were pulled over felt pressured to participate. The government offered compensation for collecting the samples. The NHTA claims it was an anonymous collection of samples for a survey of American drivers, but after complaints, Ft. Worth police apologized, saying the participation of their officers was not coordinated with headquarters. Attorneys say the roadblock and collection may have been a civil rights violation, and investigations continue. To find out more, read the story by KXAS right here.

Apparently, I wasn't the only one having issues with the website. According to Twitchy.com, lots of folks couldn't log in to the call, including many reporters. Oops.
If you didn't get to hear the Chosen One explain how everything's gonna be cool with Obamacare (eventually) either, you apparently didn't miss much. Twitchy reported that one of the President's ideas to boost Obamacare was to talk it up at Christmas parties. I'm not kidding. Obamacare supporters have sunk to the level of THAT GUY at every party who tries to sell you something. We may just win this war without having to fire a shot, since the opposition keeps shooting themselves in the foot.

So who is actually benefiting from the Affordable Care Act? Workers in the sex industry, it appears. A recent event organized by Obamacare supporters in San Francisco (of course) featured burlesque dancers performing risque skits in which they ended up topless to entertain strippers, hookers, and other assorted sex industry workers and convince them to sign up for Obamacare. It was dubbed a "Healthy Ho's Party." Seriously.
Apparently, when you're a hooker and only deal in cash, insurance is a problem. Thankfully, Obamacare will subsidize their health care - with our tax dollars. Thanks, Mr. President!

Since it's Guy Fawkes Day, we should note that hundreds of years after the fact, we still face tyranny. We have a President who spies on us at will, ruins our insurance program (after lying about it), uses the IRS to punish his enemies, abandons our heroes to die on the streets of Benghazi, and disregards the Constitution he promised to defend. Sadly, even his political foes (including the party I support) seem more concerned with personal gain than serving the people. While we remember the 5th of November, we should also remember the first Tuesday of November, when we can participate in our own revolution.
Actress Molly Ringwald decided the Texas Governor's race was missing something: her endorsement of Wendy "Abortion Barbie" Davis. She took the time to tweet on Thursday (Halloween, no less) "Support this woman. The next governor of Houston, Texas. #wendydavis #weneedwomenlikethese."
Her tweet instantly gained ridicule, with many asking exactly when Houston became a state. Others asked if she knows the difference between a mayor and a governor. She also appears to think Houston is the state capitol - wrong again, Molls - it's Austin. Personally, if politics gets her this confused, I wonder if she really knows that abortion ends a human life. I kinda doubt Wendy will fill her in.
Ringwald eventually deleted the tweet, blaming the mistake on jetlag. Yeah, flying makes us really stupid too. To read more about her tweet and the reaction to it, click here to read the full story at LifeNews.com.
