Texas Tribune: With no end in sight to containing a spill that may have dumped 150,000 gallons of fuel oil into Galveston Bay on Saturday, the hit to Texas' economy and environment is already huge -- and sure to grow. The 50-mile Houston Ship Channel, one of the world's biggest waterways for the transport of petroleum products, chemicals and other materials, remains shut down. Cruise ships can't depart from key ports. Galveston Bay's multibillion-dollar recreational and commercial fishing industry is off limits during a peak tourist season. And the scores of vulnerable species in Galveston Bay, most notably birds that are soon to begin their northward migration along the upper Texas coast, are at grave risk. read more

The mass surveillance carried out by the U.S. National Security Agency means that governance of the internet has to be made more international and less dominated by America, the European Union's executive has declared. "Given the U.S.-centric model of internet governance currently in place, it is necessary to broker a smooth transition to a more global model while at the same time protecting the underlying values of open multi-stakeholder governance," the group stated. "Large-scale surveillance and intelligence activities have led to a loss of confidence in the internet and its present governance arrangements."

Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly fired back at "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart Wednesday, saying Stewart lives in "left-wing fantasyland."

Stewart on Tuesday accused O'Reilly of "dipping whole-scale into the full Fox scandal grab bag" during his interview with President Barack Obama before Sunday's Super Bowl.

O'Reilly asked Obama about the Benghazi attack, the IRS scandal and the Obamacare website rollout debacle. Stewart said "many of those issues" had been investigated "on multiple occasions." read more

You got something to say?

Seems like you want to say something.

But all you got is vague generic posts that say nothing.

#7 - Proof of the left's atrocious double standards.

What is? What double standards? The left? is that everyone to the left of you? Or left of Obama?

#13 - what has been allegd [sic] is not only illegal, but morally repugnant. To say age of consent....in another state. ....makes a difference in California...is BS.

It may be morally repugnant, but it's not illegal.

You got a gripe? Take it up with the 31 states that set the legal age of consent at 16 years of age.

Its a loophole, I didn't create it, but, when you're in those 31 states having sex with a 16 year old is legal.

#19 - in other words laws are meaningless to you.

Again, what are you talking about? Which laws?

Pay attention Dave.

During the incident that occurred in Hawaii, in 1999, where Brian Singer and the accuser had sex, Brian Singer wasn't doing anything illegal. The age of consent in Hawaii is 16 and the accuser was 17.

The thing that was illegal was the use of cocaine. If evidence is available, that Brian Singer provided the cocaine, then Brian Singer is guilty of narcotics possession and use.

Either way, this happened in 1999, 15 years ago. I'm not sure what the statute of limitations is, but 15 years is a long time ago. Why did this person wait till now to bring it up?

Makes you wonder.

Anyway.

I'm sure you'll have another brilliant, "Liberals hate laws" retort.

I await with giddy anticipation.

So Clownshack sees nothing wrong with a gun to the head for sexual favors?

First off, are we talking about Bryan Singer or Collins-Rector? I was talking about Singer.

Secondly, the alleged victim stated that the abuse began in 1998 yet the event that occurred between him and Singer was in 1999.

When I was 16/17 years old, if I didn't want to be in a situation, I wouldn't stick around. He wasn't kidnapped, or bound and gagged in a basement. He was attending mansion parties and doing drugs. he happened to have sex while doing so? also his choice. He doesn't get a pass just because he never made it as an actor. Also, I doubt he was forced to go to Hawaii.

Also dragging minors across statelines seems to be illegal too, even though in that state its may be legal. Seems like a scumbag to me, regardless of legality....

Now you're talking about Collins-Rector. I'm not sure how he "dragged minors across stateliness at gun point". You can either drag them, or force them to cross at gun point. I doubt he did both. Either way, his case went to court and he was convicted.

Also, there are 31 states in which the legal age of consent is 16 years of age. Guess those states are just full of scumbags.

We're not talking about 7 and 8 year old kids. We're talking about a 17 year old that flew to Hawaii, went to a mansion party, did drugs, and ended up being coerced into homosexual sex.

So the law isn't "the law" as you describe, is it?

The law is the law. The difference being the people involved in the Collins-Rector case had evidence (I assume) that he had forced them to cross state lines at gun point.

Also, I assume, the victims of Collins-Rector didn't wait 15 years to come forward.
