For the first time among U.S. Food Processors, CEO of Peanut Corp. is convicted of knowingly selling tainted peanut butter, reportedly killing nine from a salmonella outbreak.

Kanika Lal A former CEO of Peanut Corporation of America will face 28 years in prison for his role in a salmonella outbreak, which reportedly killed nine Americans and sickened hundreds in 2008 to 2009. Stewart Parnell, ex-owner of Peanut Corp, appeared in a Georgia federal court with his brother and a former manager of

Three teens in southeastern Washington were charged with felonies for marijuana possession. The teens aged 14, 15 and 17 have been charged in nearby Asotin County with felonies that could net them up to five years in prison.

Off The Grid Do they have the same law for alcohol? If a kid drinks underage, is that kid then convicted of a felony? What about smoking cigarettes and using tobacco? If not, then this whole thing is hypocrisy. Maybe they’ve got the private sector running their prisons up there and they’re a little low

And another one bites the dust! The Grand Old Party once again thins the herd as Governor Scott Walker drops out of the race for most presidential candidates of all time.

Alex Logan According to the New York Times, “The short answer is money. He’s made a decision not to limp into Iowa.” A huge disappointment, I know, as we all wanted to see what other insanely asinine ideas he could come up with between now and Iowa. But don’t fret, readers, we still have Huckabee,

AUTHOR’S NOTE: NONE OF THIS REMOTELY TRUE (EXCEPT THAT KIM DAVIS ACTUALLY MET WITH THE POPE IN SECRET). BUT, MAN… WHAT IF IT WAS? EITHER WAY, ENJOY!

Alex Logan The car took two rights and a left, then two more rights and another left. Or was it three rights? Kim couldn’t keep track with the blindfold over her eyes. The warm sweaty musk of four Italian bishops packed around her in the backseat made her eyes water. These men hadn’t spent much

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has allowed its employees to stay on the job despite internal investigations that found they had distributed drugs, lied to the authorities or committed other serious misconduct, USA Today reports.

Jen Hobbs Great to know that those who enforce the law continue to feel they are above it.  Here’s what we know – as reported by USA Today: The DEA had not fired agents (and probably never will) who investigators found attended “sex parties” with prostitutes. The agents paid for the prostitutes with drug cartel money while they were

Today marks day one of recreational marijuana sales in Oregon. The state’s official slogans We Love Dreamers, Things Look Different Here, and Pacific Wonderland might now have new meanings as it joins Washington state and Colorado in allowing the sale of a drug that remains illegal under U.S. federal law.

Jen Hobbs Oregon residents 21 years of age and older can buy up to a quarter-ounce (seven grams) of dried pot at roughly 200 existing medical-use marijuana dispensaries as a new law took effect today, Reuters reports:  In Oregon, possessing and growing pot became legal in July. Through 2015, sales of pot for recreational use will be

Kevin McCarthy slipped up while talking to Fox News about the Benghazi select committee, good for Hillary Clinton, bad for Republicans.

Off The Grid Democrats are pretty excited right now about Congressman Kevin McCarthy’s recent comments on the Benghazi select committee. His comments on the nature of the House select committee seemed to be a slip-up, upsetting republicans and confirming recent criticism of McCarthy that he is inexperienced and unqualified to be Speaker of the House.

Hillary may never shake Emailgate. At least not until after the election.

Alex Logan A vigilant citizen over on Reddit (u/flantabulous) noticed that at 510 days and counting, the investigation into Benghazi has lasted longer than the investigations into the tragedies of 9/11, the JFK assassination, and Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. Even Watergate lasted only 406 days! Here are the statistics from his findings… Pearl Harbor –

A 9-year-old girl had her inhaler taken away by school officials because they were not notified about the new prescription.

Off The Grid 9-year-old Emma Gonzales from West Jordan, Utah was prescribed an inhaler over the weekend after a visit to the emergency room. When she went to school on Monday, she began to have another coughing fit during class so she took out her inhaler to relieve her symptoms. That’s when she was sent to the office

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina argued that pot is more dangerous than alcohol. But the evidence shows the opposite is true.

Off The Grid I’ve been drunk and I’ve been high in my life. I’ve behaved 10 times worse on alcohol than I ever behaved on marijuana. There’s no doubt about it. Anyone that will tell you different is crazy. Alcohol is worse, no question about it. It’s laughable that they would blame marijuana. If a

Carly Fiorina claims that the CIA did the right thing in waterboarding terrorism suspects after 9/11 stating that, “there was no other way to get information” from those suspects. She also rejected a 2014 Senate report that found that these torture methods never prevented a single terrorist attack.

Off The Grid Fiorina is full of shit. Can I be anymore blunt? She doesn’t know what she’s talking about. I’ve been waterboarded. I know what it is and I’ve looked at the facts. Why do you think we don’t let police departments torture? Because it’s already been proven that when you torture someone, all
