A drunken Florida woman stabbed her boyfriend with an 8-inch blade after he farted in her face during an argument, police say.
A healthcare provider has sued the Internal Revenue Service and 15 of its agents, charging they wrongfully seized 60 million medical records from 10 million Americans.
The name of the provider is not yet known, United Press International said. But Courthouse News Service said the suit claims the agency violated the Fourth Amendment in 2011, when agents executed a search warrant for financial data on one employee and that led to the seizure of information on 10 million, including state judges.

Meet the man behind the armed march on Washington DC - Adam Kokesh. There are few, if any, advocates of individual liberty who are as forceful -- and as controversial - as Adam Kokesh. A Marine veteran of the Iraq war, Kokesh first courted controversy in 2007 when he participated, in uniform, in protests against that war, which he -- like many other veterans -- considered unnecessary, immoral, unjust, and counter-productive. He went on to become a Republican congressional candidate in New Mexico and then briefly hosted the Adam vs. the Man program on Russia Today's American television network. He continues to broadcast the Adam vs. the Man show independently on YouTube. Read more
After watching Terrorstorm in 2006, I began a journey to promote the truth and question the status quo. I am a nonconformist and believe that one should take a stand in educating themselves. I spent nine years on active duty and saw, first hand, the over-regulation and contradictory actions within our government. After "blowing the whistle", I left the military honorably and stronger than ever. I believe that I have done more for my country in two years in the support of liberty than I accomplished while in uniform for almost a decade. I am an Industrial Hygienist and Environmental Specialist in my other life. This education, experience and expertise in these sciences fuel my distaste not only for the EPA, but the TSA! I will not sugar coat the truth, I'm not here to hold your hand, so put away your "binky", I'm here to take a stand!... Read more
More than 8,000 French households' tax bills topped 100 percent of their income last year, the business newspaper Les Echos reported on Saturday, citing Finance Ministry data. Read more
WINDSOR, Ontario -- Assumption Park gives residents of this city lovely views of the Ambassador Bridge and the Detroit skyline. Lately they've been treated to another sight: a three-story pile of petroleum coke covering an entire city block on the other side of the Detroit River.
Brian Masse, a member of the Canadian Parliament, wants a bilateral agency to investigate the pile accumulating in Detroit.
And no one knows quite what to do about it, except Koch Carbon, which owns it. Read more
" ...A young man screamed anti-gay slurs at another man on a street in Greenwich Village on Friday night, then stalked him before pulling out a silver revolver and fatally shooting him. "This clearly looks to be a hate crime," Police Commissioner Kelly said...[and] described a chaotic scene that involved a suspect who had seemingly been out looking for trouble, two unsuspecting men who had the misfortune of encountering him and a wild police chase that ended with the suspect being taken into custody... as scores of club goers and bar hoppers looked on in shock.

Anyone else remember that amid the wave of zombie like crazies on bath salts in the summer of 2012 a young lady who lost whole body parts to a Flesh-eating bacteria?
Well Aimee Copeland now uses the latest technology in prosthetic hands to chop vegetables, pick up tiny items like Skittles, and comb and iron press her hair.
I can see the sequel's title now.
Cyberwoman vs salt zombies 2014.
An unnamed administration official tells CBS "We're portrayed by Republicans as either being lying or idiots...It's actually closer to us being idiots."
It isn't worth paying for a 3D showing.
Don't expect depth, don't expect many interesting new gadgets, don't expect CGI characters and don't expect anyone to yell "HARRISOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!!!!!" (It's not as fun anyhow).
Do expect lots of gun fights, comedy, gay subtext (I'm sure some of it was done intentionally for laughs), tons of Lucasarts magic (suck it trekies star wars rules), and a skilled actor playing the villain.
In short it's not as good as master of lens flare JJ Abrams' last Star Trek but I had fun watching it.
So if I were investigating Benghazi, I'd be homing in on that 10 p.m. phone call. That's the one between President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton -- the one that's gotten close to zero attention.
We have heard almost nothing about what Obama was doing that night. Back in February, though, CNS News did manage to pry one grudging disclosure out of White House mendacity mogul Jay Carney: "At about 10 p.m., the president called Secretary Clinton to get an update on the situation."
Obviously, it is not a detail Carney was anxious to share. Indeed, it contradicted an earlier White House account that claimed the president had not spoken with Clinton or other top administration officials that night. Read more
Fewer groups sought recognition as 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations that year than in 2009, according to the Treasury Department.
A number of people have sought to explain the IRS targeting of Tea Party, patriot, and 9/12 group applications -- as well as those from other conservative groups -- for "specialist team" treatment (mainly delays and excessive and inappropriate questions) in 2010 by pointing to the Citizens United decision that year allowing for unlimited, undisclosed fundraising by such groups. That's the explanation IRS official Lois Lerner gave a week ago when she first revealed that the agency had improperly handled a slew of applications -- the political shorthand was a mistaken attempt to deal with a surge in applications.
Do you believe it was a 'meteor'? Why?
The nation's tax agency has admitted to inappropriately scrutinizing smaller tea party organizations that applied for tax-exempt status. But the IRS largely maintained a hands-off policy with the much larger, big-budget organizations on the left and right that were most influential in the 2012 elections and are organized under a section of the tax code that allows them to hide their donors.

The fact remains that, thus far, nobody has come up with one iota of evidence to contradict Miller's story. One of the congressmen asked George, the Inspector General of Taxes, if his staff had found any suggestion of political motivations on the part of the I.R.S. employees.
"We did not," George replied. None of the Republicans on the committee presented any evidence to contradict this. Read more
John Arnold, it turns out, had accumulated a fortune estimated at $4 billion in the past decade -- only a handful of people on Wall Street made more during that time.
Although he had not yet announced it, Arnold had decided to give almost all of it away.
In October 2012, he closed his hedge fund, Centaurus Energy, and retired. In U.S. history, there may have never been a self-made individual with so much money who devoted himself to philanthropy at such a young age. Read more
