From WOWK Charleston: 14-year-old at the center of "NRA T-Shirt Controversy" now facing possibility of 1 year in jail.

Suspended and arrested after refusing to change his NRA shirt. Today, 14-year-old Jared Marcum appeared before a judge and was officially charged with obstructing an officer.

A $500 fine and up to a year in jail, that's the penalty that Jared could face, now that a judge has allowed the prosecution to move forward with it's obstructing an officer charge against him.

The Logan County Police Department initially claimed that the at-the-time 8th grade Logan Middle School student was arrested for disturbing the education process, obstructing an officer and Lardieri says that officers even went as far as threatening to charge Jared with making terroristic threats.

"In my view of the facts, Jared didn't do anything wrong," Ben White, Jared's attorney said. "I think officer Adkins could have done something differently."

Quip of the day from the blog Volokh Conspiracy: While Clinton claimed to be the first black president, President Obama is the first black Nixon.

SECRET Service spooks are disguising themselves as FARMERS to protect Barack Obama from terrorist threats at the G8 summit.

They have even bought a fleet of TRACTORS ahead of the US President’s arrival in Northern Ireland tomorrow for the two-day meeting.

The agents’ plan is to pose as local farmers in the sprawling fields around the five-star lakeside hotel complex hosting the huge event.

But locals near the Lough Erne resort reckon it will not take any potential terrorists long to spot the spooks — as their sparkling tractors are all brand new.

One said: “They reckon the vehicles will let them patrol the fields around the hotel unnoticed — but they’ll stick out like sore thumbs. “It’s comedy gold really, like something out of Father Ted.”

BBBWHAHAHAHAH! US Security:FAIL!

FISA courts are conducted in Secret!

In order to protect national security there must be secrecy. But, 'secret court's' are downright creepy. This genie must be put back in the bottle.

There are and must be secrets regarding national security, but there must not be secrets or spying regarding our national elections. There is no one in Washington who we can really trust, but Obama has taken the mistrust of our government, both nationally and internationally, to never before heights.

oldman “Troll, your man Boner and the repug congress renewed Bushs patriot act blah blah blah”

So oldman, you think Harry “The War is Lost” Reid and his Democrit-controlled Senate had NOTHING to do with renewing the Patriot Act? You believe Barry “This is legislation that puts our own Justice Department above the law” Oflipflopper had NOTHING to do with renewing the Patriot Act?

This is what happens when easily-conned Democrits who are CLUELESS about the legislative process are allowed to select Presidents and legislators. Pathetic, Dems. Take some responsibility for once.

oldman “Troll, your man Boner and the repug congress renewed Bushs patriot act blah blah blah”

And who SIGNED the EXTENSION of that Act, oldman? That Act candidate Barry Oflipflopper called “plain wrong”? Well, I guess Obama himself didn’t sign it. His handlers signed it using the autopen. Barry Obumbler was too busy bumbling around Europe to be the leader here.

Man up, Democrits. Elections have consequences. One of them is RESPONSIBILITY. You're pathetic now, Dems. Harry Truman is spinning in his grave.

oldman; by the way, only on house of congress (the house of Representatives) has a Republican majority. The Senate has a slight Democratic majority, although not a 2/3 majority required to end a Filibuster or override a Presidential veto.

Oldman: "Troll, your man Boner and the repug congress renewed Bushs patriot act. Can't you post anything without lying? "

Where were you the day they talked about how a bill becomes law in 8th grade Civics? The President has to sign a bill before it becomes law, unless his veto is overridden by 2/3 majority in both houses of Congress. Obama has the opportunity to veto this bill, and did not have to worry about his veto being overturned in the Democratic controlled Senate.

To be a follower of Obama, at least a cultlike follower, you have to completley suspend reality and not think. Just embrace his slogans and pretend they are true and you will be warm and fuzzy all the time. One of Obama's first acts in office was to make the visitor's book SECRET. No other President did not, not even the dreaded W Bush. Obama did after he was asked why are all of these corporate lobbyists showing up at the WH. The beginning of the secret government, one we see and one we don't that impacts us directly. How did Obama end up with 18 times more corporate money than did Romney? Quick, don't think. We are waging wars and toppling govs that do not threaten us at a feverish rate and installing Islamic regimes who proudly say they hates us anyhow, we are infidels. We do war and Constituton busting on a daily basis but when times get tough Obama's handlers just tell us to chant BUUUUSSSH and the horror that is the Obama administration will just fade away. Take a nap.

Poopie, in 2009 and 2010 the Democratic Party CONTROLLED the House, the Senate, and the White House.

100% control.

Why did they NOT repeal the Patriot Act?
