    I follow a bunch of wrestling "news" guys on Twitter.
    This site is a good catch all for rumors and backstage stuff
    www.wrestlinginc.com
    The Wrestling Observer which is Dave Meltzer's site is good, but you have to pay for access and a lot of his news trickles to free sites

    Interestingly here in NC Republicans have been pushing for protections from these type of recordings to expose business practices by saying they are an invasion of privacy.
    It actually passed but McCrory vetoed it

    Are people still upset that PP is donating fetal tissue?
    I can understand being upset over the tone of the PP employer, but other than that what is the big deal?

    Also the "War on Drugs" was started by Nixon not Reagan.  Reagan did however start turning the war more into heavy mandatory sentencing for drug abusers, and that was followed by every president until Obama.
    I dont doubt their original intentions but it has been an abject failure

    You also have to look at time and context when talking about Reagan's ecomomic policy (or at least tax policy)
    We were overdue for a major tax cut and the economy had stagnated.
    In 1980 we were in 2015 bizzaro world.  Everything was opposite as it is now.  
    My problem is that everyone picks sides and sticks with it despite economic indicators and environment.  In 1980 we needed a big economic stimulus.  I think back then the wealthiest had about 8% of total wealth (or maybe income I will have to double check) and a 70% marginal rate.
    Now that number is anywhere from 15%-22% depending on what study you believe and we have sticky wages.
    I get pegged as a liberal because of my support of raising taxes on wealthy and/or raising the minimum wage. But it isnt because of any liberal predisposition, it is because I feel that is best way to move economy back to an equilibrium that promotes more economic stablility, helps support the middle class, and helps our debt problem based on where we are at right now economically.  We have errored on the side of supply side for way too long and the pendulum needs to swing the other way now.

    Like the guy who got shot outside his own house because a neighbor called the cops about a break in?
    Or the kid playing with a toy in a public park?
    Or the young man trying to find someone who stole a bike, called the cops, and then who was shot because he was taking off his hat after police told him to do so?
    Or the young kid who wa asked to get his liscense out of his car and was shot because he was doing just that?
    Or the young man shot at Walmart because he had a toy gun he picked up off the shelf?
    On and on it goes.
    I am sure they all liked the fact that they could live a happy life too.... until they couldnt because their lives were taken from them unnecessarily.
    Cops in the US kill over a thousand people a year.  In Germany they kill 4.  In Vietnam over 20 years US soldiers dies at a rate of about 500 a year.
    All of these stories tie back into our police policies and rules of engagement.
    Not only should this be reported on, it is long overdue.
