2014: Ban: Hawaii First State To Ban Plastic Shopping Bags

By Christina Sarich Natural Society Even with reusable shopping bags, most individuals inevitably end up with some of the annoying thin plastic ones around, perhaps shoved under the kitchen sink. Well in Hawaii, people will be dealing with a lot fewer of these plastic sacks as that state recently became the first to ban the bag at checkout and restaurants.

2012: US Senators call for universal Internet filtering

US senators today made a bipartisan call for the universal implementation of filtering and monitoring technologies on the Internet in order to protect children at the end of a Senate hearing for which civil liberties groups were not invited.

Inouye said. In that context, we must evaluate our current efforts to combat child pornography and consider what further measures may be needed to stop the spread of such illegal material […] Read More

Corsi © 2010 WorldNetDaily NEW YORK – Two private investigators working independently are asking why President Obama is using a Social Security number set aside for applicants in Connecticut while there is no record he ever had a mailing address in the state.

WND has copies of affidavits filed separately in a presidential eligibility lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia by Ohio licensed private investigator Susan Daniels and Colorado private investigator John N. Sampson. The investigators believe Obama needs to explain why he is using a Social Security number reserved for Connecticut applicants that […] Read More
