America is trying to pass a bill that could dramatically change the lives of the elderly and disabled, it’s hitting roadblocks big time

GOPers in America have made one thing abundantly clear and that is the fact that they don’t want people to live better lives. According to the Huffington Post, Democrats and their spending bill which includews a monster boost to care for the elderly and the disabled are facing major hurdles. Among those hurdles are GOPers and Republicans who want to slash funding for such things in half. Funding that could dramatically improve the lives of your loved ones; your neighbors, and most people you know who are disabled or in care. The services formally known as “home based community services” offer a vital lifeline to people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to fully suffice in society on their own (whether due to age or disability.) That lifeline also often includes the basic right th...

NY will not cover extended unemployment benefits as the $$ ends for millions in America

Previously doled out by the CARES act by the feds, extended unemployment benefits have promptly ended as scheduled for millions across America. The result of that end is as many have predicted already shaping up to be a critical time. Over the weekend, NY Governor Kathy Hochul confirmed via the Post (it seems) that the state will not cover the benefits now that they're gone. Hochul maintains that state law bars her from doing such while there is a deficit in the state which is understood to be somewhere north of $11B. Unemployment stood at 7.6 percent statewide in July and 10.5 percent in New York City, according to the state Department of Labor.

Trump Administration​ To Cut Billions From Education

The White House under the Trump administration wants a 12% cut in Educational funding, which translates to roughly $7.1 Billion gone. Poof. Vanish. Education no more.  While congress opposes this budget proposal, the Trump administration surely will find a way to get a measure of their wants fulfilled.  This news is quite troubling, as someone who has been greatly fortunate to attend a college the access to the knowledge I’ve acquired is laying an essential framework for my future. I imagine countless other students who would strongly oppose any cuts to education, as it is already it’s tough and to add undue stress to the building blocks of success is heartless. The details on Trumps Administration cut to education proposal includes  -The federal government ...

Texas’s abortion law declared unconstitutional

AUSTIN, TEXAS -- Good news in Austin this week as a Texas judge has overturned a ban on "dilation and evacuation" abortions ruling the previously declared law on such abortions unconstitutional.  Judge Lee reportedly ruled that the ban (stemming from Texas's ruling over the summer on second trimester abortions) is "facially unconstitutional" and results in doctors going against their best medical judgement. "The court is unaware of any other medical context that requires a doctor—in contravention of the doctor's medical judgment and the best interest of the patient—to conduct a medical procedure that delivers no benefit to the woman."  Judge Yeakel wrote in his final decision on the matter. An hour after the ruling, the Texas AG's office announced that they would be filing an immedia...

Body of teacher who bailed man out of jail found: Police

After an eerily gross find in  a vehicle during a routine stop.  According to Arizona state troopers,  the body of Cathryn Gorospe a local teacher has been found. Gorospe unusually and rather randomly bailed a 27-year-old man out of jail (without no knowledge of such to family or friends) and then wound up dead. Police say that Charlie Malzahn, 27,  apparently had what appears to be a "romantic relationship" of sorts with Gorospe. To what extent, however, police are still trying to figure out as Malzahn claims "he was high on meth for most of the time from his initial arrest up until  Gorospe actually wound up dead". Authorities were able to confirm that Monday,  Malzahn, was indeed arrested in Gorospe's vehicle.   Police did indeed find bloodstains on the interior which led to h...

Montana theft plot hilariously foiled, uh, and then some

MONTANA --  If you're going to rob a house, uh, you probably should double-check the contents of the robbery items in question first. A Montana man learned his fate this weekend, uh, after he decided t o rob a home but the plot was foiled by items he wanted placed in the U-Haul truck.  The item ? According to police,  Patrick Adams , got caught after his unknowing accomplices discovered military medals in the boxes that they suspected didn't belong to him. Adams, last July, managed to make off from a man's home (a service-members residence at that..) with more than $40,000 in goods.   Police reports say that Adams story fell apart after people saw military medals in some of the belongings he was trying to smuggle out of the home. Per the AP,  his friends "felt suspicious because he had ...

The TSA just rolled out a “new” pat down technique 

New to us old to them.  Among the top five techniques used by the TSA, only one will be used from now on in terms of public pat downs. According to the TSA, travelers who now refuse to go through body scanners will apparently face pretty invasive pat downs by agents in the nearest private room.  So invasive,  that agents are now reportedly allowed to use the front of their hands. Officials have since notified police and airport police of such a change in frisks, potentially, to avoid some pretty bizarre police reports.

After numerous abuse claims, 22 boys promptly removed from boarding school

ALABAMA -- An Alabama boarding school is in the headlines this weekend after an apparent massive sex-abuse ring was busted up Friday afternoon.   Local authorities say that at least 22 boys were removed from the Blessed Boys Academy.   State troopers and police officers who coordinated on the case say that the school was reportedly raided last weekend in Seminole. State troopers note that students of the school apparently ran away from the school to nearby homes of neighbors to inform them of the abuse. So far, no charges are pending.  Police did say, however, that if and when a parent actually comes forward with their child -- charges and an investigation will be opened. In statements, the school denied any wrong doing citing that the claims have no "base" and were "made up by the c...
