Rand Paul: Right to privacy predates the Constitution, comes from God
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) argued on Thursday that people have a legal right to privacy that predates the Constitution and comes from God. "I think some conservatives get this thing wrong. They say, 'Oh you don't have a right to privacy because it's not in the Constitution.' Well, there's not a right to private property in the Constitution either," the libertarian-leaning senator said.

The exercise, which began July 24, tested the Marine Well Containment Co.'s equipment for capping blown-out underwater wells and containing the hydrocarbons gushing from them. The exercise was the first time the equipment and personnel responsible for deploying it were put through a real-life emergency scenario with regulators looking on. Houston Chronicle

Doctor shortage likely to worsen with health law
Health experts say that President Barack Obama's health care law is likely to worsen the country's doctor shortage, The New York Times reported. The Association of American Medical Colleges estimates that in 2015 the country will have 62,900 fewer doctors than needed. And that number will more than double by 2025, as the expansion of insurance coverage and the aging of baby boomers drive up demand for care. Even without the health care law, the shortfall of doctors in 2025 would still exceed 100,000. Memphis Business Journal

This was her life in Crittenden County, Ark., deep in the Delta where unfortunately one in four families lives well below the poverty level.

There are numerous factors driving the new industrial revolution in the South. And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
