Boston's bid to host the 2024 Olympics was undercut by its own mayor, its skeptical public and, finally, leaders of the U.S. Olympic Committee, who were tired of the city's ever-changing blueprint. Next, it may be time to see if there's more Olympic love in Los Angeles. http://apne.ws/1U2SVtF

Good for Boston saying 'NO.' Hosting the Olympics is a nightmare, and a money drain. At least, that's what they say...

The act is monumental in scope, intended to protect people with disabilities from discrimination and enable them to participate fully in the workforce and their communities. Its protections, which now cover an estimated 55 million Americans, extend to five key areas: employment, state and local government facilities and services, public accommodations, telecommunications, and transportation.

"Do not try to match him in anger and in aggressiveness. It's not possible," former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a 2012 GOP candidate, warned Trump's rivals. "He's a very instinctively aggressive guy, and if you try to dance with him on his strengths he'll run over you."
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Considered the ultimate wildcard, Donald Trump is complicating debate strategy for Republican presidential candidates now scrambling to prepare for their first face-to-face meeting on national television.…

Secretary of State John Kerry challenged critics and defended the nuclear deal with Iran, saying "Let me underscore, the alternative to the deal we've reached isn't what we're seeing ads for on TV," he said. Kerry spoke as Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee and other Republicans spoke scornfully of the administration's claim that the only alternative to the deal that was reached was a war with Iran. "You've been fleeced," Corker, the committee chairman said.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry bluntly challenged critics of the Obama administration's nuclear deal with Iran on Thursday, calling it "fantasy, plain and simple," to think the United States failed to…

Texas county's troubling tradition of racial strife has resurfaced in the days since a black woman named Sandra Bland died in the county jail after a traffic stop by a white state trooper. Video of the confrontational stop ignited long-simmering passions and caused some blacks to raise their guard around law enforcement in Waller County and the county seat of Hempstead, once known as "Six Shooter Junction" because of white supremacist violence in the 1800s.
HEMPSTEAD, Texas (AP) — In the searing 100-degree Texas heat, Sylvester Nunn uses three worn beach umbrellas to protect himself and the produce piled in the bed of his old Chevy pickup truck as he carries on a generations-old…

"Personal liberty -- or the right to enjoyment of life and liberty -- is one of the fundamental or natural rights, which has been protected by its inclusion as a guarantee in the various constitutions, which is not derived from nor dependent on the U.S. Constitution. ... It is one of the most sacred and valuable rights as sacred as the right to private property ... and is regarded as inalienable."
16 C.J.S. Const. Law, Sect.202, Pg. 987 

"Personal liberty -- consists of the power of locomotion, of changing situations, of removing one's person to whatever place one's inclination may direct, without imprisonment or restraint unless by due process of law."
Black's Law Dictionary, 5th ed.;

"...We are of the opinion that there is a clear distinction in this particular between an individual and a corporation, and that the latter has no right to refuse to submit its books and papers for examination on the suit of the State. The individual may stand upon his Constitutional Rights as a Citizen. He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way. His power to contract is unlimited. He owes no duty to the State or to his neighbors to divulge his business, or to open his doors to investigation, so far as it may tend to incriminate him. He owes no such duty to the State, since he receives nothing therefrom, beyond the protection of his life, liberty, and property. His Rights are such as the law of the land long antecedent to the organization of the state, and can only be taken from him by due process of law, and in accordance with the Constitution. Among his Rights are the refusal to incriminate himself, and the immunity of himself and his property from arrest or seizure except under warrant of law. He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights."

"Upon the other hand, the corporation is a creature of the state. It is presumed to be incorporated for the benefit of the public. It receives certain special privileges and franchises, and holds them subject to the laws of the state and the limitations of its charter. Its rights to act as a corporation are only preserved to it so long as it obeys the laws of its creation. There is a reserved right in the legislature to investigate its contracts and find out whether it has exceeded its powers. It would be a strange anomaly to hold that the State, having chartered a corporation to make use of certain franchises, could not in exercise of its sovereignty inquire how those franchises had been employed, and whether they had been abused, and demand the production of corporate books and papers for that purpose." 

Hale vs. Hinkel, 201 US 43, 74-75 

"Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them."
Miranda vs. Arizona, 384 US 436, 491 

"The claim and exercise of a constitutional Right cannot be converted into a crime."
Miller vs. U.S., 230 F. 486, 489 

"The use of the highways for the purpose of travel and transportation is not a mere privilege, but a common and fundamental Right of which the public and the individual cannot be rightfully deprived."
Boon vs. Clark, 214 SSW 607;

"The Right of the Citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by horse drawn carriage or by automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city can prohibit or permit at will, but a common Right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
Thompson vs. Smith, 154 SE 579

Despite obvious and public signs of mental illness _ most importantly, a Georgia judge's order committing him to mental health treatment against his will as a danger to himself and others in 2008 _ John Russell Houser was able to walk into an Alabama pawn shop six years later and buy a .40-caliber handgun.
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — John Russell Houser was deeply troubled long before he shot 11 people in a movie theater in Louisiana, but decades of mental problems didn't keep him from buying the handgun he used. Despite obvious…

+Donna F I've been all over the western half of this country. Americans are the weirdest most contradictory ppl. You're unpredictable. A nation of ppl with double standards, you say you believe one thing & do another. You have forgotten what made you strong. And the tailgating. Why does everyone speed & tailgate? I like to go fast but I don't drive stupid. Never seen so many bad drivers outside of an Asian or Indian country. I think crazy ppl from all over the world have been coming here a long time & met other crazies & had crazy children. And now you, as a nation, are seeing where buying weapons for crazies leads.
