What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

Why has Nestlé, who owns a baby-formula producing company called Gerber, removed GMOs (genetically modified organisms) from baby foods and formulas in South Africa and not in the United States?

Perhaps because South African parents are more vocal than Americans. Or it might also be because corporations conducting business in the U.S. are protected by government agencies who don't seem to give a hoot about public health - not even of our most fragile citizens. Maybe it's time we speak out for the sake of children's health.

The FDA issued warning letters this week to the two largest distributors of essentials oils in the United Sates, Young Living and dōTERRA. The FDA is claiming that their products are being marketed as unapproved drugs.

According to the FDA, these promotions - especially ones related to Ebola - are inaccurate but not unexpected. "Oftentimes with public health incidences, like Ebola or even during H1n1, we see products that are marketed, often online, that claim to treat or cure the disease...without FDA approval," FDA spokeswoman Stephanie Yao said in an interview, adding that "these sorts of things pop up" in almost any public health crisis.

A small insurance company in California has a thing or two to learn about customer service. Adriana's Insurance Service settled a lawsuit over an employee assaulting an elderly man... and delivered his compensation in buckets full of coins.

Andres Carrasco filed a lawsuit against the company in 2012, claiming he was physically assaulted by an Adriana's Insurance Service employee. The business agreed to settle in June. When it came time for Adriana's to pay up the $21,000 they owed him, however, they didn't just cut a check. Employees ‒ eight of them ‒ arrived at Carrasco's lawyer's office in a van, and proceeded to deliver five-gallon bucket after five-gallon bucket filled with change before leaving. "There's over 16 buckets of quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies. It's going to take us at least, conservatively, one week to count that whole amount of money," attorney Antonio Gallo told KCBS. Carrasco, who is 73, just had a hernia operation, and is unable to lift any of the buckets, Gallo said to KNBC. "It's too heavy," the recipient said to KCBS.

They did everything by the book. They had their CITES permits. They even disclosed to the officials that they were carrying instruments that featured antique ivory.

But Campbell Webster and Eryk Bean, both age 17, are nonetheless each without their vintage Robertson drones after they attempted to return home to Massachusetts after a successful weekend in Canada competing at the games Maxville and Montreal. Webster's 1936 silver and ivory Robertsons are not just vintage pipes, they are an heirloom instrument, played for many years by his father Gordon Webster, who was a pipe-major with the 1st and 2nd Battalion Scots Guards and served for many years as the official piper to Queen Elizabeth II.

With all the recent police misconduct stories circulating in the news these days, a story out of Phoenix, Arizona deserves to make the rounds.

Phoenix police officer Richard Greco was captured red-handed by his own audio and video recording devices referring to innocent civilians as "retarded," and repeatedly addressing another arrestee as a "bitch." "I'm talking to you you piece of shit now get the fuck over here," the officer is heard telling another person who he appears to shove as well.

Jennifer Smith was conducting a little police accountability Friday night by filming an Henrico County police officer who'd parked illegally at a gas station.

The officer was on official duty, however, as Smith points out in the video there were five legal parking spaces available. The officer apparently parked illegally just because he can. Smith explains that she has a plethora of footage of the Henrico County cops breaking the law. She also explains how she and her husband are constantly harassed by these same cops. She has had enough.

Bryce Weber walked out of his house to find an unmarked police car sitting in the road, so he became curious.

Weber, well aware of his first amendment right, walked outside with his camera rolling. He then simply asked the officer if everything was alright, being that he was parked right outside of his house. They established that everything was indeed "okay," the officer got back in his car and Weber, well within his rights, continued to film. This cop must have been camera shy, so he felt it necessary to exit his vehicle and demand that Weber stop filming. Weber tries to inform the officer that he is not doing anything wrong.

13 illegal immigrants and two Americans were taken into custody by Border Patrol agents at the Campo Border Patrol Westbound I-8 checkpoint in California.

With the surge of law enforcement and National Guard troops to America's southern border, the Rio Grande Valley region is becoming increasingly difficult for Mexico's criminal cartels to penetrate. Immigrants who see men armed with automatic weapons and dressed in combat fatigues, like the Texas game wardens currently patrolling the border, may also suddenly become motivated to seek access to the United States elsewhere.

Leaders of two police unions had some strong words Tuesday over what they are calling anti-police rhetoric in the wake of the death of Eric Garner last month.

After watching this press conference one is left wondering, are these cops or is this central casting for the next mafioso blockbuster?

A SWAT team is under investigation for storming into a home in Coconut Grove at around 11 a.m. with a narcotics warrant.

According to the homeowner, Bobby Mclendon, the warrant that SWAT presented to raid his house was for 2 blocks away. However these brutes did not care. They came in belligerent, with guns drawn ordering children around like slaves. When the children didn't react fast enough to the officers' commands one child was subsequently bludgeoned with the buttstock of a rifle. "They didn't have any reason to, but they hit my nephew in the head with their rifle. He's 13," recounts Mclendon.
