@yildiray... If Jacki's son was busted in in the West, he'd have been held in esteem. A badge of honor. Twisted isn't it?

If this cop could have drawn a gun... why couldn't he as easily have drawn a tazer. Google the *Maserati pulled over for looking like a cop car... interesting to me is that on this car, rather than 'TO SERVE and PROTECT'... this car was decaled in it's place with 'DECEPTIONS PUNISH and ENSLAVE'. Given this fact... It's curious that the driver was cited as impersonating the Police. Hummmm...

I'm suspicious this technology not only is a deeper invasion of privacy, but also an excuse for drivers to do so, less focused on their own safety and others using roadways... and put an end to the annoying distractions inherent in driving, allowing drivers to focus on phoning and texting while operating a motor vehicle.

@Burning Bush...ISIS is now armed with world class weapons and scramble proof radios that are uninterceptable.
Let's stop using the faceless term NATO. The U.S. is the kingpin in undertaking of this nature. I find it almost incomprehensible the dangers of leaving a room without taking loaded guns off the table. The ignorance and motivation is obvious. Prolong the conflict, keep the war machines suppliers oiled and pockets full of blood money. And let's not overlook the MAJOR role these industries play in puppeting branches of the government. There is no argument. This is a blatant that was made in Afghanistan, consequently arming AlQuida... again arming Saddam... rebels in Somalia... and the list goes on, growing longer each passing day. News footage shows rebles flaunting in parade fully functioning heavy weapons in your face as they commit atrocities that the West pretends to denounce. Should we believe that of all the 'brilliant' minds involved... briefing included a round table comedy scripted; 'I didn't pick up the weapons... I thought YOU picked up the weapons... (chuckles and guffaw rattle medals on military chests). Welcome to the Comedy of Errors, Japan.

@John Galt... Kerry's aiming to do something to improve his abysmal foreign policy record.
You seem to suggest that Kerry is capable and or actually has the talent... is laughable. His position is token. And we all know it. Thanks for the chuckle!

Okay... he was more annoying than funny. The sad thing here is that antidepressants prescribed for depression only increase the risk of suicide. Hummmm. Hundreds die of these side effects, yet we continue to herald the pharmaceutical industry while jailing those that perform concentual assisted suicides. Kind of depressing ain't it?

@ toshiko...Can't they sanction only expensive none-food products?
Ahhh... Therein lies the depth of foreign empathy. There isn't nearly the bushels of money to be made in food or commodities, as there is in Mercedes and Apples. That kind of sanction would hurt some innocent Corporation bottom-line... AKA...political contribution. We couldn't have that now... could we? When it comes down too it... the sacrifice and suffering is always expected to be on and from the heros of the working class. This is a chance for the Russian people to slip the shackles that the likes of the WTO would put them in.

@ jerseyboy...the NRA, can hold our Congress hostage when the majority of Americans -- nearly 60% -- favor stricter gun laws.
The Congress is a willing partner and 'hostage' to the NRA. Stop kidding yourself. What is MOST important to any, and every, Senate or Congress member is Special Interest political contribution in the form of $$$... not morality. Your concern is theirs, only when you stand up to call them out, or take any group/individual action against those $$$ interests. And history shows that your going to lose unless it has something to do with their ability to cash in. Your comments are valuable... you perspective is slightly askew.

Israel is simply getting it's troops out of harms way before intensifying the bombing... in the name of diplomacy, of course.

In all these intelligent autopsies of the issue, no one admits the single most important thing motivating Israel in securing the real estate... Gaza is water front property. Instead of Kerry the clown, this would easier be settled through Donald Trump.

Ignore current immigration laws on the books... wait until the situation is out of control... throw 3billon at the problem and pass the cash to reward administrators that failed to do their job. Stupid is as stupid does.

The only tactic this administration has is throwing money at the (ANY) problem. Failed administrators skimming millions out of Taxpayer programs, rewarded for their creativity. Step up to the free-throw line.

As for the remainder of your post, I'm afraid I do not understand your English.
Of no consequence.
It will only appears as revealed stupidity to those dependent on a Liberal agenda that clears the conscious of societies portion that is dependent on handouts supporting apathetic life-choices. You'll be forced to accept stoned co-workers that are job placed by mandate. Being of an Independent persuasion, I resent having to already foot the bill. The lawsuits that your looking forward to will indeed bring up taxpayers subsidizing the likes of those dependent on any class of drug/choice with once only recreational free choice with consequence ties. The lawsuits will have nothing to do with consequence, which too will eventually become a tax burden.

@LAGUNA... Not surprisingly, whining- please tell me what to think Liberals- are comparing women's birth control as a right, compared according to viagra and vasectomies, which are covered. I don't get it... Viagra has nothing to do with birth control... and a vasectomy is the equivalent to a tube-tying, which a doctor could easily loop-hole prescribe for any number of physical or psychological reasons. Furthermore, neither female/male procedure is permanent, if that procedure was performed (in context) with that option in mind, at the time. And incidentally, neither procedure, physically diminishes promiscuity or family planning.

“The owners of for-profit companies should not be allowed to assert their personal religious views to deny their employees federally mandated benefits,” Earnest said.
Yeah... it's the Government's job to assert it's Liberal views to deny their non-profit taxpayers federally mandated benefits. Obviously the Supreme court is out of control. One would think they think they're the voice of the people keeping intervention in check according to a constitution or something insane like that. How will I ever get the Taxpayers to pay for my reefer NOW? If Thomas Jefferson were alive today... he'd be clawing at the inside of his coffin!
