What's also troubling is the lack of outrage from the media on behalf of the Americans who were bullied by the IRS.

The First Amendment to the Constitution, in the Bill of Rights, "prohibits the making of any law... abridging the freedom of speech." Every American is protected by this inalienable right that ensures that the government cannot attack its citizens for their beliefs. Yet, one of the most powerful federal agencies, the Internal Revenue Service, did exactly that when they targeted conservative non-profit organizations seeking tax-exempt status. Officials at the IRS have admitted to these actions and Congress has been investigating. Yet, the IRS has refused to provide critical information about the extent of the targeting and who was involved. After promising for a year to deliver emails related to how certain conservative groups were targeted and who was involved in the decision making process, the IRS informed Congress last Friday that they cannot locate many of the emails in question prior to 2011 as the result of a computer crash during that year. Lois Lerner, former head of the IRS division that processes applications to determine tax-exempt status, is currently under investigation by three congressional committees, the Justice Department and the IRS inspector general. Her emails are the ones the IRS claims have both been erased and the data is unrecoverable due to the hard drive in question being recycled.

No place in Maine has been harder hit by painkiller abuse than Washington County.

Maine was hit earlier and harder by prescription painkiller abuse than much of the nation. And Washington County, at its eastern tip, has been considered ground zero for painkiller abuse in Maine for the past decade, since an explosion of addiction in Down East Maine and in West Virginia earned OxyContin the nickname "hillbilly heroin."

The first ad, entitled "1965," featured Griffith saying, "This year, as always, we'll have our guaranteed benefits. And with the new health care law, more good things are coming."

But the non-partisan says some 10 million Medicare Advantage recipients will see their benefits cut by about $43 a month. "Currently, about one in every four beneficiaries is enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan," said, a project of the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg Public Policy Center.

Too much was expected of President Barack Obama by his supporters in 2008, said actor Tony Shalhoub, the star of the USA Network show "Monk."

"I think some people have expressed some disappointment, but I believe he has a lot of support there," Shalhoub told "I think people are wanting and willing to give him another four years, and a lot of his policies are long-term plays. And I think a lot of people lost sight of the fact that four years ago, when he was campaigning and when he was elected, his campaign promises and everything that he was talking about, he even said he wasn't going to be able to do it by himself and that it was going to take all of us stepping forward, volunteering, doing our part."

The so-called Monsanto Protection Act signed into law earlier this year caused such an outrage that people around the world are planning to protest the biotech company later this month. Now a United States senator is expected to try and repeal that law.

According to the Huffington Post, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon) plans to introduce an amendment in Washington that would repeal Section 735 from the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2013, a provision that has put St. Louis, Missouri-based Monsanto in the sights of environmentalists around the world.

Superbugs known as CRE - called "nightmare bacteria" by federal health officials because they are deadly and virtually untreatable - are skyrocketing in the Southeastern USA, new research shows.

Experts fear a growing national problem, and some say the spread of such superbugs may portend a "post-antibiotic era." Cases of the antibiotic-resistant CRE rose fivefold in community hospitals in the region from 2008 to 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center found, and they said those rates are likely underestimates.

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) talks to PJM about his new bill to counter provisions that could "tax religiously affiliated schools, hospitals, universities and soup kitchens right out of existence."

Before the House repealed ObamaCare once more last week, another bill was introduced to stop the Department of Health and Human Services from charging religious institutions steep fines for noncompliance with the mandate to provide birth control without an insurance co-payment. Under President Obama's healthcare law, the HHS can levy $100 per employee, per day against institutions that won't comply with the mandate.

The incident has highlighted both the use of birth surrogates, a violation of Chinese law, and how wealthy Chinese do as they please, with scant regard for the rules that constrain others. The most common reaction, though, has been simple disbelief.

The University of Southern California is facing a federal civil rights investigation after students filed a complaint alleging that the school ignored rapes on campus and even failed to prosecute attackers after they confessed.

One USC student, remaining anonymous, involved in the complaint stated that campus police decided the young woman wasn't raped because her attack did not orgasm. "Because he stopped, it was not rape," she was told, according to the complaint. "Even though his penis penetrated your vagina, because he stopped, it was not a crime." Because her attacker did not orgasm, campus police decided not to refer the case to Los Angeles Police. Another student cited a similar occurrence.
