Nearly two dozen socialists in the Midwest were hauled before a grand jury because an undercover FBI agent said they were talking about revolution. But speech isn’t supposed to be a crime, even when it disagrees with the state.
…an undercover special agent was intent on luring people into saying ominous things about “revolution” and, sometimes, some of these people indulged her.

UPDATE: This poor pup’s surgery breakdown came back from the vet far more expensive than estimated. This little guy needs $5800 to operate on both of his legs avoiding amputation. Please share if you haven’t, please give if you can…
Here’s a message from my cousin:
Thank you so much for your contributions. Rocketship is still in the vet’s care at the VRCC and surgery has been scheduled for Monday. As is the case is with estimates, it’s called an estimate for a reason. We have now been faced with another obstacle: Rocket’s initial estimate only counted surgery for the back femur break. That surgery was the estimate we posted last night for $4400. Unfortunately, now we found out that his front paw is severely dislocated and can only be repaired by another surgery that will cost an additional $1500. We have been trying to avoid amputation as much as possible.
According to the vet’s phone call this morning, Rocket has officially had his final examinations and x-rays which revealed the necessity for both surgeries. To save both legs will cost a total of $5800. This is our cap. The price will no longer change because this is the official word from the surgeon.
We have been taking this hour by hour, day by day, and are still so overwhelmed and floored by your responses and positive energy in such a short time. We never even dreamed that this was possible. So we owe you, and Rocket owes you much, much more than thanks.
We will be posting the final receipt as soon as we have a copy. Please continue sending this to anyone who may be willing to donate something for Rocket’s legs. If we raise more than our goal, or have money leftover from your donations, we will be putting that towards his after care.
Thank you so much for staying with us through this. And please pass this along. - See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/pup-s-new-legs-and-a-life-to-use-them/156147#sthash.siOafqXs.dpuf

We’re safer than ever, in the U.S.
You might not know it from watching TV news, but FBI statistics show that crime in the U.S.—including violent crime—has been trending steadily downward for years, falling 19% between 1987 and 2011. The job of being a police officer has become safer too, as the number of police killed by gunfire plunged to 33 last year, down 50% from 2012, to its lowest level since, wait for it, 1887, a time when the population was 75% lower than it is today.
So why are we seeing an ever increasing militarization of policing across the country?
An important topic, not the most informative of articles. For follow up and specific cases, see the ACLU’s rundown of over-militarized police stories.
