Tax Reform - A recent IRS report showed that 20,752 households that reported earning more than $200,000 in 2009 paid no federal income taxes because of loopholes. About 1,500 of those tax-free Americans were millionaires.

Liberia - A UN-backed court has sentenced Charles Taylor, Liberia's ex-president to a 50 year prison sentence. The judge stated: "The accused has been found responsible for aiding and abetting some of the most heinous crimes in human history." 

Drones - The Obama administration plans to arm Italy with drones. Aside from the U.K., Italy will be the only NATO member with American "weaponized" drones. Officials believe this move will make it difficult to deny any other ally armed drones in the future.

The mother only wanted to keep the baby if it is a boy. Meanwhile, the Obama administration is against legislation that will forbid gender abortions – this is the White House Statement: White House deputy press secretary Jamie Smith says in a statement: “The Administration opposes gender discrimination in all forms, but the end result of this legislation would be to subject doctors to criminal prosecution if they fail to determine the motivations behind a very personal and private decision. The government should not intrude in medical decisions or private family matters in this way.” The bill failed to get two-thirds majority in the house because 161 Democrats voted against the bill.

Defense of Marriage Act - The three-judge panel of the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston ruled that the provision defining marriage as between a man and woman is unconstitutional in that it denies gay couples the rights granted to heterosexual couples.
