Kansas GOPer: Let’s Shoot Illegal Immigrants Like Pigs

From TPM:

Kansas State Rep. Virgil Peck (R) suggested Monday that the best way to deal with the illegal immigration problem may be the same way the state might deal with the problem of “feral hogs” — by shooting them from a helicopter.

The state’s House Appropriations Committee was debating financing for controlling the feral swine problem, the Lawrence Journal World reports, when one legislator suggested the problem could be handled by shooting them from helicopters. Peck offered: “It looks like to me if shooting these immigrating feral hogs works maybe we have found a [solution] to our illegal immigration problem.”

$10 drug now $1500 after FDA grants monopoly

From BoingBoing:

A progesterone hormone injection, used to prevent preterm labor, used to be $10 a shot. Now that the FDA has assigned an exclusive right to create the easily-made formula to one company, KV Pharmaceuticals, the price has risen to $1500. Almost all of it is pure profit, and KV Pharma did not develop the drug or pay for its trials: the taxpayer did, via the National Institute for Health. It is said to be the only drug proven to prevent pre-term birth, and an expert cited by ABC News suggests that the profession was snookered into supporting the assignment as a quality standardization measure.

Glenn Beck: Japan Earthquake Might Be A ‘Message’ From God


On his first day back from vacation, Glenn Beck addressed the earthquake in Japan, and said he thinks that it could be a “message [is] being sent” by God.

Speaking on his radio show Monday, Beck said, “I’m not saying God is, you know, causing earthquakes,” before quickly adding, “I’m not not saying that either.”

He then said that whatever one called God, “there’s a message being sent. And that is, ‘Hey, you know that stuff we’re doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.’ I’m just saying.”

Students of Higher Learning vs. Parked Cars

From Times Union:

ALBANY — A group of college parties exploded into a huge melee on Hudson Avenue early Saturday morning before Albany’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, and police arrested six persons on charges ranging from rioting to assaulting a police officer.

City police responded to so-called “Kegs & Eggs” house parties near the intersection of Ontario Street at 7:15 a.m. and found several hundred students in the street, drinking alcohol and destroying property, city police spokesman Detective James Miller said.

“The group became large and unruly and started to damage several cars parked in the area by attempting to overturn one, smashing car windows and caving in the roof of one car,” Miller said. “They also threw furniture from second-floor porches onto cars and the street, and beer bottles at a large number of officers who had responded (to) quell the group.”
