Disabled children need schools and services that are right for them. Parents need access to respite care and other support. More than half a million UK families face a daily challenge to get support for their disabled child. The current lack of local services and respite care makes it much harder than it needs to be. Scope are campaigning to change this. In this film for Scope’s Keep Us Close campaign, we meet Jane Jones and her son Jacob, who has hydrocephalus (also know as “water on the brain”), autism and a learning disability. She talks about the challenges her family faces on a daily basis as they try to get the right support for Jacob locally. Scope’s Keep Us Close campaign is aiming to get a guarantee of better support for disabled children and their families in their local area. The Government is putting a new Children and Families Bill through Parliament that will say what happens in England. The Welsh Government is also writing a new Bill to reform Special Educational Needs in Wales. We’re campaigning to get these Bills to include such a guarantee.

The Good! *Dr. Peter Bourne* *Dr. Peter Bourne* Bourne was the drug policy advisor to President Jimmy Carter. In an interview with Newsweek this week – Bourne attacked President Obama’s current drug policy – calling the administration’s approach to marijuana “totally insane.” He also said that the federal government should be taking a hands-off approach when it comes to marijuana policy in the states. It’s time lawmakers in Washington listened to Bourne – started worrying about the real issues instead – like the economy – and got to work creating sensible drug policies for our country. ———— The Bad! *Conservative Pundits* While Bill Clinton stole the show last night at the DNC – another high-profile speaker last night was Sandra Fluke. And – shortly after her speech – numerous Conservative pundits took to Twitter to bash Fluke. Ann Coulter said, “Sandra wants taxpayers to pay for her tanning appointments,” while Dana Loesch tweeted, “Don’t lecture conservative women about empowerment while demanding we pay for what goes on in your bedroom.” Finally – Michael Berry chimed in, saying, “I hope someone was passing out free condoms tonight, otherwise Sandra Fluke might be in trouble tomorrow.” Conservatives say they care about women and respect their rights – but it’s quite clear from this hatefest that they don’t care at all. ————- And the Very Very Ugly! *Rep. Steve King (R-IA)* King said in a recent speech that the government’s new nutrional standards for …
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Supreme Court will soon consider whether police must get a warrant before forcing a suspected drunken driver to submit to a blood test, a case that could set a new legal standard for motorists’ privacy.

Ignorance (usually willful) of conditions in pre-Castro Cuba, of Fidel Castro’s background, of US-Cuba relations pre-1960 all contribute to the cliché-ridden Castro legend. With the media wallowing in a Castro-cliché orgy over these hideous past decades let’s examine the truth about pre-Castro Cuba with IMAGES which do speak a thousand words! In 1958, only 7 percent of invested capital in Cuba was American, and less than one-third of Cuba’s sugar output (its main crop) was by US companies. Cuba had a grand total of six gambling Casino’s at the time. (Gulfport/Biloxi Mississippi has double that number today.) Cuba’s Gross Domestic product in 1957 was .7 billion. Cuba’s foreign receipts in 1957 were about 0 million–of which tourism made up only million. Gambling was a small fraction of this million. Exactly two Havana hotels were mob-owned (compare this to Las Vegas history.) In 1958, Cuba had approximately 10000 prostitutes. Today an estimated 150000 ply their trade on the desperate island, many as young as 14. And to cap it all off: in 1950 more Cubans (out of a population of six million) vacationed in the US, than Americans (out of 200 million) vacationed in Cuba. At that time, Cubans didn’t come to the US in any great numbers to settle. In fact as a percentage of population, Cuba took in more immigrants (primarily from Europe) in the early 20th century than did the US In the 1950′s, when Cubans were perfectly free to emigrate with all their property and US …
