In op-ed, Mark Kelley says new leaders needed at NRA, which is now in Houston for annual convention 2.5.2013 Daily Kos
Now, as the National Rifle Association prepares begins its 142nd annual meeting in Houston this weekend, the Houston Chronicle has published Kelley's op-ed . Kelley chastises the organization's leadership and praises the good sense of its members who polls say support expanded background checks: The NRA's two best fundraising months of the past year came immediately following the shootings in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn. Guns fly off the shelves after tragedies because [NRA executive vice president Wayne] LaPierre and the gun manufacturers he represents exploit people's fears. In return, gun manufacturers gave LaPierre and the NRA tens of millions of dollars last year alone—and he spent almost $1 million of it on his own salary. Everyone in the gun lobby gets rich when the gun manufacturers sell the most guns. And that's why LaPierre and the rest of the leadership of the NRA and other gun organizations are spending so much of their time wild-eyed, preaching possible government ...

In Indian mining town, the barons are back 2.5.2013 Washington Post: World
Until recently, this iron-ore mining district in southern India was a byword for cronyism and plunder. Now it represents redemption, though not everyone is cheering. It was steel that made Bellary a boomtown; steel sought by China in the run-up to the 2008 Olympic Games. As demand soared, prices leapt 15-fold. Indians who cut corners and mined illegally while the government looked away got rich, including a modern-day robber baron named Gali Janardhana Reddy, whose 60-room mansion stood out among his spoils. ...

West Fertilizer Co. Failed To Disclose Explosive Substances to DHS 2.5.2013 Crooks Liars
The fertilizer plant that exploded on in West, Texas in April, wiping out part of a small Texas town and killing at least 14 people, had last year been storing 1,350 times the amount of ammonium nitrate that would normally trigger safety oversight by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). And while state regulatory officials were aware (assuming they read the filings from the fertilizer plant) of the massive quantity of ammonium nitrate and anhydrous being stored at West Fertilizer, it wasn't their job to notify the DHS. McClatchy reports : A 2006 permit application to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality noted the facility had the capacity to process up to 2,400 tons of ammonium nitrate. In 2012, West Fertilizer informed the Texas Department of State Health Services that 270 tons of ammonium nitrate and 55 tons of anhydrous were on hand at the facility. Those figures never went reported - state officials were not required to do so - to the federal Department of ...
Armed gunmen ambush teachers in an Oregon school ... as a readiness test 2.5.2013 Daily Kos
Two masked men wearing hoodies and wielding handguns burst into the Pine Eagle Charter School in this tiny rural community on Friday. Students were at home for an in-service day, so the gunmen headed into a meeting room full of teachers and opened fire. Someone figured out in a few seconds that the bullets were not drawing blood because they were blanks and the exercise was a drill, designed to test Pine Eagle's preparation for an assault by "active shooters" who were, in reality, members of the school staff. But those few seconds left everybody plenty scared. DeCastro has heard some criticisms of the drill from townsfolk, but is convinced it was valuable. "For us not to know how we were going to respond is leaving us open," she said. ...

Economics Daily Digest: Uncertainty, unprincipled 1.5.2013 Daily Kos
By Tim Price, originally published on Next New Deal Click here to receive the Daily Digest via e-mail. The studies behind austerity are weak. The study behind 'uncertainty' is worse. ( WaPo ) Ezra Klein notes that the "policy uncertainty is hurting the economy" meme is back in the headlines, and as Roosevelt Institute Fellow Mike Konczal has shown, that's apparently all the proof that the researchers making that claim think they need in order to back it up. How Wall Street Defanged Dodd-Frank ( The Nation ) Gary Rivlin explains why passing financial reform in 2010 might have been the easy part compared to the all-out war lobbyists have been waging against it ever since. Schoolhouse Rock left out the part where the Bill turns up dead with a knife sticking out of his back.
