Jack The Pit Bull Rescues Cat Being Attacked By Two Coyotes

“As I was walking to the door, I could see the coyotes over here,” she said to the station while indicating a nearby part of her neighborhood. Soon after spotting the animals, she said they attacked the cat, named Kitty.

“One had her by the neck and the other had her by the tail,” she said, before adding that the family pit bull, Jack, soon came to Kitty’s rescue. “I didn’t know Jack could run that fast. He was on them so fast.”

Thanks to Jack’s intervention, Kitty is alive, though she did sustain a broken tooth and a head injury. Lewis told WTVT that she is well on the road to recovery.

She added, “Jack is a hero. He saved the kitty’s life and he just shows how good dogs can be. Big dogs can protect you, especially if something like this happens.”

From the Young family: U.S. Rep. C. W. Bill Young's condition turned for the worse over night and he is gravely ill. His doctors say his prognosis is guarded.

Young, 82, has been at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where last week he announced his retirement, effective after his current term expires in 2014. His illness was attribued to back issues but it has become clear since then that he was in worse condition.

Thanks To Obamacare, Oregon Cut Its Unsinsured Population By 10 Percent Over The Past Two Weeks

Over the past two weeks, Oregon has signed up so many low-income residents for health coverage that the state has cut its uninsured population by 10 percent, according to state health officials. The majority of those people are newly eligible for public insurance plans thanks to Obamacare’s expansion of the Medicaid program.

The Oregon Health Plan — which is what the state calls its Medicaid-funded program for poor residents — has enrolled 56,000 new people this month. State officials credit those high numbers to a fast-track enrollment system that allows people to easily sign up. More than 250,000 food stamp recipients in the state received a notice informing them that they’ve become eligible for the Oregon Health Plan, and explaining that they can either make a phone call or fill out a form in order to complete the enrollment process.

“This is tremendous news for the thousands of Oregonians anxious to get access to quality, affordable health care,” Gov. John Kitzhaber (D) said in a statement. “We still have a ways to go, but in reducing our uninsured rate by 10 percent in just two weeks, we’re showing what’s possible when a state is committed to fundamentally changing the health care system to provide better access, better health and lower costs.”



OBAMA: "You don't like a particular policy or a particular president-Go out there & win an election"

“You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president, then argue for your position,” Obama said. “Go out there and win an election.”

The comments are likely to have many Republicans complaining that Obama is spiking the football after a victory.

The bruising fight led to internal battles in the Republican party, and polls show more voters blame the GOP than the White House for the shutdown and debt ceiling crisis.

Cheney, in regards to his own death, should that ever happen

“If this is dying, I remember thinking, it’s not all that bad,” Cheney writes in the book, according to the New York Times. “I believed I was approaching the end of my days, but that didn’t frighten me. I was pain free and at peace, and I had led a remarkable life.”

'It took Cruz 16 days to improve the Dems position by 5 points-Imagine What He Could Do In 6 months'

Steve Lombardo @Steve_Lombardo
It took Ted Cruz 16 days to improve the Democrats position on the generic ballot 5 points. Imagine what he can accomplish in next 6 months


More from Daniel Larison (THE AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE):

… Cruz is capable of recognizing when he has reached a dead end, but he is indifferent to the damage done to anyone but himself. Anyone who wants to follow a leader like that should be prepared to be ill-treated and misled from start to finish.
