'Batman vs. Superman' Swings Super Subsidy Deals from Multiple States

'Batman vs. Superman' Swings Super Subsidy Deals from Multiple States [Michigan Capitol Confidential]:
The mainstream media’s infatuation with the state-subsidized “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” movie production reached new heights this week following reports from an anonymous blogger who posted photos of filming in East Lansing and Detroit.
What hasn’t been in the media’s viewfinder is that the production may be collecting subsidies not just from Michigan but also from other states. 
...In addition to the $35 million the film’s producers have been approved to collect from Michigan taxpayers, Batman vs. Superman may also get subsidies from Illinois and New Mexico.
....Rather than tax credits, Michigan offers film producers straightforward cash subsidies.
Batman vs. Superman was approved for up to $35 million from the state, based on spending an estimated $131 million here.
The subsidy can cover up to 32 percent of the producer’s expenses here, which makes it one of the most generous in the country.
...Since the Legislature approved film subsidies in a bipartisan 2008 vote, Michigan has spent $500 million on the program. 
Yet today the state has fewer film industry jobs than it did before the subsidies.

CDC admits droplets from a sneeze could spread Ebola

CDC admits droplets from a sneeze could spread Ebola | New York Post:
"Ebola is a lot easier to catch than health officials have admitted — and can be contracted by contact with a doorknob contaminated by a sneeze from an infected person an hour or more before, experts told The Post Tuesday.
“If you are sniffling and sneezing, you produce microorganisms that can get on stuff in a room.
If people touch them, they could be” infected, said Dr. Meryl Nass, of the Institute for Public Accuracy in Washington, DC.
Nass pointed to a poster the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quietly released on its Web site saying the deadly virus can be spread through “droplets.”
“Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose or mouth of another person,” the poster states.
Nass slammed the contradiction.
“The CDC said it doesn’t spread at all by air, then Friday they came out with this poster,” she said. “They admit that these particles or droplets may land on objects such as doorknobs and that Ebola can be transmitted that way.”
Dr. Rossi Hassad, a professor of epidemiology at Mercy College, said droplets could remain active for up to a day.
“A shorter duration for dry surfaces like a table or doorknob, and longer durations in a moist, damp environment,” Hassad said.
The CDC did not respond to a request for comment."

Woody Harrelson 'Climate Change' PSA Ahead of Midterms: 'The Truth is Undeniable'

Woody Harrelson 'Climate Change' PSA Ahead of Midterms: 'The Truth is Undeniable'

Actor Woody Harrelson has lent his voice for climate change in a brand new advertisement titled "Our Fight" that calls out global warming skeptics and urges those concerned about environmental issues to head to the polls on Nov. 4.

..."They told us the world was flat and insisted it was the center of the universe. They ignored pollution, said that cigarettes were harmless... Now they tell us climate change is a hoax. Some powerful people want to hold us back, but the truth is undeniable. This is a fight we will win," says Harrelson.

Latest Reason to Oppose Amnesty? Voter Fraud

Latest Reason to Oppose Amnesty? Voter Fraud:
Are non-citizens potentially voting in Tuesday’s election?
Yes, according to Old Dominion University Professors Jesse Richman and David Earnest, whowrote an article for The Washington Post highlighting their findings:
Most non-citizens do not register, let alone vote. But enough do that their participation can change the outcome of close races.
Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 Cooperative Congressional Election Study sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections.
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.

‘Houston Five’ Claim Victory as Mayor Annise Parker Says City Has Withdrawn Subpoenas Seeking Pastors’ Speeches | TheBlaze.com:

"Houston’s mayor says the city has withdrawn subpoenas seeking speeches and other information from five pastors who publicly opposed an ordinance banning discrimination of gay and transgender residents.
Mayor Annise Parker said Wednesday that the subpoenas weren’t intended to infringe on anyone’s religious freedoms, but rather to help the city defend itself against a lawsuit challenging the ordinance that the City Council approved in May."

BANNED Marine Father to School Administrators: Take that Muslim-Loving Assignment and Shove it!

BANNED Marine Father to School Administrators: Take that Muslim-Loving Assignment and Shove it!:
"Kevin Wood is a former Marine and the father of a daughter who is a junior at La Plata High School in La Plata, Md. When he objected to the pro-Islam homework material being taught to his daughter, Wood contacted administrators and has now been served with a no-trespass order that forbids the father from setting foot on school property.

Wood called to have his daughter excused from the coursework that he deemed to be heavily pro-Islam. He spoke first with an assistant and eventually with La Plata High vice principal Shannon Morris.
School district spokeswoman Katie O’Malley-Simpson claims Wood threatened to cause problems at the high school, but has yet to offer any specifics. As a result, Wood is now banned from campus."

Can your family afford Mark Schauer?

Can your family afford Mark Schauer?
Boom, you just lost $1,000.
How would you and your family deal with the loss?
Would you slash your grocery budget by $20 each week?
Cancel your cellphone plan or do without home Internet access?
Would you skip a mortgage payment or two and risk foreclosure?
Stop picking up the prescription drugs you require to stay healthy?
Or would you have to stop making payments to your children’s college fund or be unable to help a parent in their twilight years?
You and your family may have to make these cuts soon.
During Michigan’s Lost Decade, families got far more used to tightening their belts than they liked. Now, as Mark Schauer — one of the chief architects of our lost decade — makes his pitch to become Michigan’s next governor, he’s dropped a bombshell on Michiganians in the form of a new plan for massive new government spending.
And he’s expecting you to pick up the tab.
Schauer released his so-called “Blueprint for Michigan” this summer, outlining his priorities including billions in new government spending.
While the media robustly criticized the document for lacking specifics, fiscal analysts began digging through it to find out what it might cost taxpayers.
A former House Fiscal Agency director pegged the new costs in Schauer’s plan at $2.2 billion per year. 
The Mackinac Center for Public Policy, a free market think tank based in Midland, puts the price tag at between $2.4 billion and $3.7 billion annually.
(The Mackinac Center also noted that its estimate was “conservative,” citing at least a dozen additional new government programs or departments in Schauer’s plan with costs that were impossible to estimate.)

Assuming a slightly more conservative estimate is accurate, the math on that new spending comes out to a new $1,000 per year tax, per family, across the state of Michigan....

Insurance Companies Begin Writing ‘Ebola Exclusions’ into Policies

Insurance Companies Begin Writing ‘Ebola Exclusions’ into Policies Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!
Remember the promise of universal health care with Obamacare, with no refusal for ‘pre-existing conditions’? 
It looks like your insurance company may not have to cover you if you get Ebola. 
U.S. and British insurance companies have begun writing Ebola exclusions into standard policies to cover hospitals, event organizers, and other businesses vulnerable to local disruptions.
While it is estimated that expenditures to treat the original Dallas Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, were approximately $100,000 an hour (though he passed anyway), it looks like insurance companies won’t be footing the bill.”

The Ebola Virus Lives on in Human Sperm for Two to Three Months

The Ebola Virus Lives on in Human Sperm for Two to Three Months | The Daily Sheeple:
Yeah, we apparently have to go there.
The World Health Organization released a statement earlier this month confirming that the Ebola virus can live in sperm for at least two but up to three months:
The Ebola virus is transmitted among humans through close and direct physical contact with infected bodily fluids, the most infectious being blood, faeces and vomit.
The Ebola virus has also been detected in breast milk, urine and semen. In a convalescent male, the virus can persist in semen for at least 70 days; one study suggests persistence for more than 90 days. [emphasis added]
Three months.
The Ebola virus can hide out in a man’s sperm who is recovering from Ebola for three whole months, meaning anyone he has unprotected sex with is at risk for catching Ebola.

OMG, we're gonna starve unless we give Al Gore, Barry and their enviro cronies more of our kid's money!!!!!---8 foods you're about to lose due to climate change

8 foods you're about to lose due to climate change | Vital Signs | The Guardian
What does climate change taste like?
It’s an odd question, but an increasingly pertinent one.
After all, as temperatures rise and extreme weather becomes the norm, many food production systems are becoming threatened.
As that trend increases, it’s worth asking which foods consumers will have to cut back on – or abandon entirely.
Here’s a list of the foods to enjoy now – while they’re comparatively plentiful.
Corn (and the animals that eat it)
Water shortages and warmer temperatures are bad news for corn: in fact, a global rise in temperatures of just 1C (1.8F) would slow the rate of growth by 7%.
The impact of a disruption in corn production would extend far beyond the produce section at the supermarket. A great deal of US corn goes to feed livestock, so lower corn yields could mean higher meat prices, and fewer servings of meat per capita.
Big, long list of food that gonna be gone baby, gone!
Unless we turn over our wallets, our kids future earnings and oodles of political power over to Al, Barry and those saints at the UN.
Kinda scary, huh?

Former fire headquarters hotel plan gets grant
The plan to overhaul Detroit's former fire department headquarters into a boutique hotel received a $5.8 million grant by the state of Michigan's economic development agency Tuesday.
The $28 million hotel project is at 250 W. Larned, site of the former Detroit Fire Department headquarters that dates back to 1929, and the adjacent Pontchartrain Wine Cellars once a popular downtown restaurant.
The performance-based loan was approved by the Michigan Strategic Fund, a branch of the quasi-public Michigan Economic Development Corp.

"Erik Prince, founder of the private security firm Blackwater, Inc. and author of “Civilian Warriors: The Inside Story of Blackwater and the Unsung Heroes of the War on Terror,” said something about the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi on Wednesday that could change the way the horrific conflict is viewed.
Prince was speaking on Glenn Beck’s radio program when Beck remarked: “The people in Benghazi that were killed, private contractors, we just left them behind, just discarded them. I think we were running guns over to Syria.”

“No. Actually missiles,” Prince said."

Being married has a lot to do with economic success, scholars say

Being married has a lot to do with economic success, scholars say - The Washington Post:
Researchers W. Bradford Wilcox and Robert I. Lerman have collaborated on a study that I hope will spur lots of conversation and programs to strengthen and encourage marriage.
The report isn’t about criticizing the life choices people make.
There is no judgment in the findings.
Rather, their research shows that stable, two-parent families decrease the chance of people ending up impoverished.
...I was also concerned by their findings that the widening economic gap is exacerbated by the fact that adults with less education and fewer financial assets are choosing not to marry while well-educated, high-earning adults are lifting their economic situation by tying the knot. 
“Thus, higher-income Americans are enjoying larger economic returns from marriage than they used to,” the researchers write.

BREAKING: Ebola Nurse’s Ties to CDC Scrubbed From Website – Is Far Left Progressive & Obama Supporter

BREAKING: Ebola Nurse’s Ties to CDC Scrubbed From Website – Is Far Left Progressive & Obama Supporter | The Gateway Pundit:
"The Ebola nurse who attacked Governor Christie for putting her in quarantine after returning from Africa is a Progressive with ties to the CDC.

Her LinkedIn profile was scrubbed this weekend.
Natural News reported:
Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was quarantined in New Jersey over her high risk status as a possible Ebola carrier, has ties to the CDC which have been deliberately hidden by the mainstream media.
Right now, a war is waging between states like New Jersey, New York and Illinois — which have all decided to quarantine travelers at high risk of Ebola infections — and the federal government which is adamantly opposed to border security, medical quarantines and travel bans."
