3 year old begs for help after carjacker steals his father’s car

This story is from News 21:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A 3-year-old is back with his parents after he knocked on a stranger’s door in the middle of the night following the hijacking of his father’s car at a convenience store with him in the back seat.
“Help me, I’m cold,” the toddler told Traci Gilbert, who answered the door.
She said heard her doorbell ring about 2:15 a.m. Sunday and got up to check. Gilbert looked through the peephole and didn’t see anyone, so she opened her door. Outside, she found the 3-year-old covered in snow and sleet.
“He wasn’t crying. He never shed a single tear the whole time,” Gilbert said, puzzled how the toddler made it up 14 slick steps to her front door, carrying a plastic bag that held a container of soy milk, a Sippy cup, two diapers, wipes and pajama bottoms.
The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that his father, Anthony Pettiford, told police he left his car running at a convenience store when it was stolen with the child inside.
“I’m sure the guy didn’t mean to take the kid, but no matter, he put a 3-year-old in the snow,” she said. “He completely abandoned him in the snow.”

Wisconsin Supreme Court will not review voter I.D. case

This moves the process forward. Only a U.S. Supreme Court ruling can over turn this now.

From WKOW:

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has refused to take up of appeals of rulings blocking a new state law requiring voters to present photo identification at the polls.

The court did not explain why it was not taking up either appeal (League of Women Voters and NAACP) in separate orders issued Monday.

Four of the seven justices had to agree to take the cases for the high court to hear them.

Two separate state appeals courts last month had asked the court to take up the appeals and consolidate the cases in order to speed resolution.

The photo ID requirement was blocked by two separate Dane County circuit court judges last month. A trial in one of those cases began Monday

California Faces Its Day Of Fiscal Reckoning

Posted: 3:45 pm PDT May 22, 2009Updated: 3:58 pm PDT May 22, 2009

The day of reckoning that California has been warned about for years has arrived.
The longest recession in generations and the defeat this week of a package of budget-balancing ballot measures are expected to lead to state spending cuts so deep and so painful that they could rewrite the social contract between California and its citizens. They could also force a fundamental rethinking of the proper role of government in the Golden State.
“The voters are getting what they asked for, but I’m not sure at the end of the day they’re going to like what they asked for,” said Jim Earp, executive director of the California Alliance for Jobs, which represents the hard-hit construction industry. “I think we’ve crossed a threshold in many ways.”
California is looking at a budget deficit projected at more than $24 billion when the new fiscal year starts in July. That is more than one-quarter of the state’s general fund.
This week, voters said they no longer want the Legislature to balance budgets with higher taxes, complicated transfer schemes or borrowing that pushes California’s financial problems off into the distant future. In light of that, Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has made it clear he intends to close the gap almost entirely through drastic spending cuts.
The governor’s cutbacks could include ending the state’s main welfare program for the poor, eliminating health coverage for about 1.5 million poor children, halting cash grants for about 77,000 college students, shortening the school year by seven days, laying off thousands of state workers and teachers, slashing money for state parks and releasing thousands of prisoners before their sentences are finished.
“I understand that these cuts are very painful and they affect real lives,” Schwarzenegger said. “This is the harsh reality and the reality that we face. Sacramento is not Washington — we cannot print our own money. We can only spend what we have.”
He also has advocated selling state assets to raise cash, including the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and San Quentin State Prison.

 The Democrats who control the Legislature do not want major spending cuts, but so far they don’t have a plan for closing the deficit. And if their solution is higher taxes and more borrowing, they will probably not have enough Republican votes to get the two-thirds approval needed for passage.

Michael Steele. The media didnt vet Obama because of his race

The Hill

He was not vetted, folks,” Steele said. “He was not vetted because the press fell in love with the black man running for the office.

” ‘Oh, gee, wouldn’t it be neat to do that? Gee, wouldn’t it make all of our liberal guilt just go away? We can continue to ride around in our limousines and feel so lucky to live in an America with a black president,’ ” Steele said, mocking what he sees as a biased media.

Oh my Democrats ready to kill Climate Bill ?

Al Gored

From the Hill

House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) said on Thursday that he has the votes to take down Rep. Henry Waxman’s (D-Calif.) climate change bill.

Peterson’s boast comes as Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Waxman has backed off on his desire to have his bill go straight to the floor. Waxman told reporters Thursday afternoon that he expects the bill to go to Peterson’s committee, as well as to the Ways and Means and Foreign Affairs committees, for additional markups.
