Glenn Beck Eviscerates MSNBC Promo Claiming Your Kids Belong to the 'Whole Community' and Makes Some Scary Connections - The Blaze - Glenn Beck opened his radio show Monday in a state of near disbelief over an MSNBC promo where anchor Melissa Harris-Perry calmly explains how your children don’t really belong to you — they belong to the collective. “It’s almost a parody of reality,” Beck said of the clip. “It is so far beyond what we have ever thought as a nation, it’s remarkable…” For those who haven’t seen the advertisement, Harris-Perry says: We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children. Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children. So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.

(2) Can Average Citizen Really Save Lives in Active Shooter Situation? Here's What Experts Found - The Blaze - Should citizens defend themselves or remain passive during active shooter situations?
This is a controversial query that has been asked and revisited in light of recent mass shootings. And the question also spawned nation-wide discussion, once again, after a video being touted by law enforcement agencies across the country emerged earlier this year.

And following the clip’s media coverage, it seems some research has emerged that does corroborate the notion that victims can help save lives by thwarting assailants. On Saturday, The New York Times published a report about this very issue, highlighting that some researchers and police, in the wake of recent mass shootings, are encouraging more active involvement from citizens.

(3) Obamacare's 'Navigators' - Off Course - Betsey McCaughey - American Thinker - Just this last week it was revealed that:
Tens of thousands of health care professionals, union workers and community activists (will be) hired as "navigators" to help Americans choose Obamacare options....(and) provide free translators for those not fluent in English -- no matter what their native language is.
These "navigators" will earn "an estimated pay of $20-$48 an hour."
But that might not be the worst of it.
Former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey is the author of the book, Beating Obamacare, and she may know more about that monstrosity than nearly anyone. She has been explaining that this "navigator" program is more than an enormous and expensive affirmative-action employment scheme.
In interviews with Stuart Varney (caution -- may autoplay) on Fox Business' "Varney and Co." and with Eric Bolling,who was subbing on Fox News' "Cavuto and Co.," Ms. McCaughey showed that it is also a gargantuan and unchecked identity-information scoop into which individuals will be pouring, unknowingly, massive doses of personal data: Read more.......
