Homeowners Association Won't Allow Vietnam Veteran to Build Furniture For Needy Military Families (Video)


Dennis Kocher, A Veteran of Vietnam, told he can no longer make furniture for military families, which he's done for the last decade, inside the garage of his California home


CBS 13
A war veteran who builds furniture in his garage and gives it to military families in need could be forced to shut down the saws.

A homeowners association is telling Dennis Kocher he needs to close up shop after years of doing business, or he could be fined between $100 and $1,000.

“Everyone who received my furniture or responsible for dispersing it gave me this gift and it’s something I’ll treasure forever,” Kocher added. Kocher was originally told that he had to get a business permit, which he did in 2012, but the HOA came up with a new complaint.

“Now they’ve come back to me and said I’m producing odors and noxious fumes,” he said.

KOCKER:
I don’t make a profit. The money I spend is my own money, my own time and talents and I build it to give to the Beale Air Force Base"
Watch the video- Shut down by the HOA

UPDATE-

Israel says it's extending Gaza truce for 24 hours

BEIT HANOUN, Gaza Strip (AP) — Hamas resumed rocket fire Saturday on Israel after rejecting Israel's offer to extend a humanitarian cease-fire, the latest setback in international efforts to negotiate an end to the Gaza war.

Despite the Hamas rejection, Israel's Cabinet decided to extend a truce for 24 hours, until midnight (2100 GMT) Sunday. However, it warned that its military would respond to any fire from Gaza and would continue to demolish Hamas military tunnels during this period.

The temporary lull on Saturday saw Palestinians return to neighborhoods reduced to rubble and allowed medics to collect close to 150 bodies, Palestinian health official Ashraf al-Kidra said.

 

O'Reilly on Impeachment of Obama: 'He Would Never Be Convicted'



Bill is right on this one. Could impeachment happen? Yes, the House could vote to impeach Obama. Removal from office is a different ballgame. Conviction requires a 2/3 vote in the Senate. That would be 67 votes, which will NEVER happen. Not a chance. If Republicans takeover the Senate this fall, it still will NEVER happen as Republicans will only have a slim majority (some estimates low 50s). You would have to have at least 10 to 15 (maybe more) Dem senators join every Republican for conviction in the Senate.

 In 1999, not one Democrat in the Senate voted 'guilty' on Bill Clinton's charge of Perjury or Obstruction of Justice. Not one.

So, Obama being removed from office is Not Going To Happen.

Carville: Obama Doesn't Really Care What the American People Think of Him (Video)

'The president doesn't much like politics' and 'doesn't care' what his poll numbers are- James Carville



dailycaller
Former Democratic strategist James Carville sounded a little exasperated Thursday when he admitted President Obama “doesn’t really care” what the American people think about his presidency.

The Fox News contributor sat down with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and “The Five” host Andrea Tantaros to discuss President Obama’s consistently depressed poll numbers.

Carville noted that the president’s low numbers have been “stable” at about “43.6 [percent approval] — which is not very good, but not collapsing.”

O’Reilly — seeking to cut through the “technical garbage” — asked Carville whether the public’s perception of a failed presidency was accurate or “fair.”

Carville tried to dodge a value judgment. “You know what, whether it’s fair or not, that’s public opinion,” Carville said. “And I further think that — honestly — I don’t really think he much cares what we think. And I don’t think he much cares about his poll numbers.”

“I think he thinks he’s done and is doing a good job and history will record him, that’s he’s going about his business,” he concluded. “He doesn’t really care.”

Fox's Jarrett Pleads Guilty To Disorderly Conduct Following Airport Arrest



MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Fox News weekend anchor has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct following a May arrest at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Fifty-nine-year-old Gregg Jarrett entered the plea by petition Friday and didn't appear in Hennepin County District Court. His attorney didn't immediately return a message seeking comment.

Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan says Jarrett's plea will be thrown out in a year if he doesn't commit the same or similar offenses and if he abides by certain conditions. Among them, Jarrett can have no alcohol or drug offenses and he must complete treatment.

Jarrett was arrested May 21 after police received a report of an intoxicated customer at an airport restaurant. A police video shows him struggling with an officer.
