"In a scathing attack on Trump and Cruz, Mr Koch said he could not back either candidate unless they backtracked on some of their controversial policies.
The businessman singled out Cruz's vow to carpet bomb ISIS in the Middle East and Trump's ban on Muslim immigrants as policies he could not support.
'That's gotta be hyperbole, but I mean that a candidate - whether they believe it or not - would think that appeals to the American people. This is frightening,' Mr Koch said."
"AS PRESIDENT Obama nominated Merrick Garland, the chief judge of the country’s second-most powerful court, to the Supreme Court on Wednesday, Republican leaders immediately accused the White House of playing politics. In fact, it is Republicans who are putting politics above their essential responsibilities. Mr. Garland should get confirmation hearings, and after those a straight up-or-down vote. Any political damage Republicans endure for refusing will be self-inflicted and well-deserved."
"Lee is a fervent “tenther,” someone who believes the 10th Amendment to the Constitution radically restricts the authority of the federal government. As Jeffrey Rosen wrote in the New York Times Magazine in 2010, “Lee offered glimpses of a truly radical vision of the U.S. Constitution, one that sees the document as divinely inspired and views much of what the federal government currently does as unconstitutional.”
Among the areas that Lee has suggested it is unconstitutional for the federal government to be engaged in:
Medicare and Medicaid,
child labor laws,
the Violence Against Women Act,
and, of course, the Affordable Care Act."
"Selena Ahmed, a researcher at Montana State University who is spearheading the project, said maple producers have told her team that weather within the season is becoming more variable, causing more erratic sap flows and impacting quality. The vagaries of sap flow may not mean much to the average waffle enthusiast, “but what is happening to changes in quality? That’s the big research gap and consumers can relate the most to that,” Ahmed said.
Ahmed is conducting a chemical analysis of syrup from the producers in the network to see how temperature shifts affect the compounds that give maple syrup its distinct flavor."
