President Obama summarily executes American citizen by drone attack in Yemen.
""The killing of Anwar al-Awlaki is a great success in our fight against al-Qaeda and its affiliates," said Rep. Peter King, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security. "For the past several years, al-Awlaki has been more dangerous even than Osama bin Laden."Al-Awlaki, who was born in New Mexico and spent time as the imam of a mosque inNorthern Virginia, isn't as big a fish as bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader killed in a stealth strike by Navy Seal Team 6 in May. But he might have been a more significant threat to the United States in recent years.Up to the time of his death, U.S. officials remained concerned about his ability to inspire homegrown terrorists. The Obama administration even put him on the kill or capture list, allowing for an unprecedented lethal strike against a U.S. citizen."Has Obama put out a kill order on your or somebody you know? Are you sure? The president has claimed the power to arbitrarily murder Americans, making us much less safe.

Most Ohioans can't pay their child support.
"County and state officials blame the economy, high unemployment and parents’ inability to pay the amounts mandated by the courts for many of the defaults. Officials also cite difficulties establishing proper wage withholding processes with some parents’ employers."In other words, the courts are screwing dads. I've seen this since I started working in the legal field back in Ohio. The courts demand dads who make almost nothing pay exorbitant amounts of child support. If they fail to pay, the state takes away their drivers license, costing many their jobs. The state makes it impossible for them to pay then wonders why so many don't.
"Custodial parents are more likely to seek public assistance when the other parent is not paying child support. That leads to higher costs for taxpayers, said Robert Gruhl, director of the county’s child support enforcement."The government subsidizes divorce indirectly through child support and directly through this "public assistance", but we wonder why divorce rates are so high.
While the government has spent multiple millions or billions developing facial recognition technology, a couple of guys at Carnegie Mellon have developed a cloud-based ap that can identify people in cell phone pictures in under a minute.
