"Benedict XVI resignation: The two-pope problem"

^ Like in other countries having laws that protect the disabled are only effective if they are enforced. There are many laws regarding the disabled in the United States and many have been around for decades and yet organizations, companies, etc are allowed to find loop holes and continue to discriminate against the disabled. Hopefully, this new Russian law will be enforced, but having experienced first-hand how the majority of Russians treat and think about the disabled (most see the disabled as getting what they deserve and many consider everyone with a disability to be mentally unstable) I doubt it will do much to actually help the disabled. ^

^ Even though this is from the White House and is is biased in favor of Obama I thought the explanation of what cuts would happen on March 1st. I used New Hampshire to show what effects it would have on a smaller state and then left what would happen nation-wide. It seems that whenever we have a Democrat as President they can't get their act together on the budget. Clinton allowed the Federal Government to shut-down in the early 1990s and Obama allows for the threat of furloughs, shut-downs every few months. That should tell the American voters something. It is funny that these automatic cuts are called Sequestration because it sounds like someone should be riding a horse. ^
