When people are stressed at work, they go for a walk, or smoke a cigarette. In the case of one Japanese nurse, you pull out the fingernails of an elderly patient with dementia.

This isn’t as weird as it is horrifying, but “nail extraction” is certainly a weird way to handle stress. Akemi Sato, a 37-year old nurse at Mori hospital in Kyoto, has been arrested for tearing out the nails of an 80-year old patient with senile dementia.

Over the last three weeks, as the world has watched the spectacle of the Zuccotti Park protesters in lower Manhattan, some have been inspired and, in many cases, repulsed at the protesters occupying the park. Since the protests have now garnered the backing from the professional protesters from the AFL-CIO’s 56 unions and the SEIU, as well as implicit and explicit support from the Obama Administration and Democrats, there is more relevance to examining not just what the protesters are protesting but what they are promoting.

Herman Cain has the support of a man who is proud to be an American — and has a song to prove it.

Lee Greenwood, who is best known for his patriotic hit “God Bless the USA,” is part of a group of musicians who offered their support to Cain, a Republican candidate for president, Monday in Nashville. (RELATED: Cain trails Obama by just three points)

The group is calling itself “Artists Raising Cain.”

“I felt now was the perfect time to pull our friends in the music and entertainment community together,” said group co-founder Douglas Warren. “We’re so passionate about this candidate, Herman Cain.”

It's enough to make all tree-hugging, EPA-loving, spotted owl seekers weep.



In August, armed federal agents raided the offices and factories of the legendary Gibson Guitar Corp. in Nashville and Memphis. It was the second time the feds had ransacked the renowned Tennessee guitar-maker since President Barack Obama took office. And what were they going after? Dirty laundering monies? Gun smugglers? Cocaine cargo that could make cartels quiver?



No. The federal search and seizure sought to capture ... ready? Wood. To be exact, rosewood and ebony from India, which the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service had declared to be illegal to import.

Imagine that you couldn't drive on major highways without agreeing to put a camera in your car -- one that could film either the occupants or the vehicle’s surroundings and transmit the images back to a central office for inspection.



You don't have to read George Orwell to conjure up such an ominous surveillance state. You just have to skim through filings at the U.S. Patent Office.



It's hard to imagine Americans would tolerate such a direct, Big-Brotherish intrusion. But they might not notice if the all-seeing cameras were tucked inside another kind of government tracking technology that millions of Americans have already invited into their cars.
