NewscastMedia -- A bill that will allow people to carry concealed weapons to church was signed into law yesterday by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
The bill authorizes persons who are qualified to carry concealed weapons who have passed the training and background checks, to bring them into churches, mosques, synagogues or other houses of worship as a security force.
The bill was proposed because it was deemed necessary for houses of worship in declining nieghborhoods, to be able to protect themselves against crime. http://www.newscastmedia.com/jbobbyjindal.htm
NewscastMedia.com Houston news -- In less than two years, Obama is likely to face one of these GOP rising stars in a battle for the White House. Ron Paul had a very successful grassroots campaign and raised a lot of money over the Internet, however, I think the media will give him less coverage as they did in 2008, due to his views on the war, the IRS and the Federal Reserve. I have therefore narrowed the field down to the above-listed candidates.
Mitt Romney the former Massachusetts governor has successfully raised money for fellow Republicans through his Free and Strong America PAC. He is an effective fundraiser and also a staunch critic of the Obama administration especially with issues relating to the economy.
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin formed her political action committee, SarahPAC, and eventually resigned from her governorship in July 2009. Virtually every candidate she has endorsed has won his or her election. Sarah Palin told Larry King she hasn't ruled out the possibility of running in 2012.
Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Congressman, introduced his "Roadmap to America's Future" in 2008 and released an updated version at the beginning of 2010. An incredibly astute economist, Ryan publicly challenged Obama's Obamacare at the 2010 Health Care Summit and is known for the quote, "Hiding spending doesn't reduce spending." http://www.newscastmedia.com/risingstars.htm
Newscast Media Houston news — The Senate approved a measure that would extend the tax credit for homebuyers for three extra months. In essence those who purchased homes in April and were supposed to close by the end of June, now have until September, to close the same deal.
The $8,000 tax credit for new homebuyers is an effort by the Obama
administration to boost home sales in a slow economy, however, critics argue that the approved measure is an invitation for fraud that could encourage home buyers to backdate their contracts to April, in order to close in September.
The Internal Revenue Service said, “Special filing and documentation
requirements apply to anyone claiming the homebuyer credit.” The measure was pushed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who faces a tough re-election in Nevada where the worsening home crisis has received a lot of attention. The measure was signed by Obama on Friday July 3, a day before the Fourth of July celebrations.
