Headlines - Monday June 4

Romney's first pick for Chief of Staff or White House Counsel in the campaign's potential presidential transition plans is a man who is profiting from Obamacare. He offers consulting services to states implementing health insurance exchanges.



Last month One Million Moms bitched that JC Penney was blocking their emails. And now Target is doing the same. Snork! Via the Christian Post:
When Target began selling the pro-gay shirts late May, the American Family Association sent out an alert to supporters, asking them to let Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel "know that a majority of Americans oppose same-sex marriage and are able to use their pocketbooks to voice their opposition to companies that support it." In a recent update, AFA stated, "Target is blocking emails from the AFA Action Alert system." The family group is asking supporters to contact the retailer through other means. Steinhafel says that diversity is a "core value" at the retailer and that Target fosters "an inclusive culture." Family Equality Council is now among a dozen groups that Target partners with.
Target, Macy's, JC Penney, Home Depot.... There sure are a lot of shopping options for loyal gays these days.
The good spellers at Team Rmoney strike again!
This pisses me off completely about Obama
These remote bombings (including when done in a traditional aircraft and pilot) don't have a tremendous track record. With each attack, we're only one step away from the next wedding party disaster. Is this really where we want to go?
Rockets fired from a US drone killed between eight and 15 people in north-west Pakistan on Monday, officials have said in varying accounts. It is the third strike in as many days after attacks on Saturday and Sunday killed a total of 12 people.

The latest strike targeted a militant hideout in the Hesokhel village of the North Waziristan tribal region, officials said.

US drones hit targets in the South Waziristan tribal region on Saturday and Sunday. There have been a total of seven strikes in less than two weeks.
