"Remember little Rachel on the left? The emaciated puppy rescued by Officer Kelly Steinhorn from a locked dark room in the basement of a vacant house in Baltimore City last week? She's already been adopted from the Maryland SPCA by fellow Police Officer Bryan Kunkle, who has renamed her Camden! Here she is, smiling with her new BFF, Officer Steinhorn's rescued Pittie, Pretzel. Two lucky pooches granted second chances at fabulous lives, free from abuse. Congrats on your new addition, Officer Kunkle and thank you again Officer Steinhorn for stepping up and rescuing her. What a heartwarming happy ending!"
The officer who originally found the dog (not credited in this story) is a car buddy from waaaaay back and is an example of (A) a good cop and (B) an inspiring example of a person who decided to make real changes in their life to improve it rather than sitting around complaining about it.

Red face America is not as bad as we might think?

That's sort of a Ron Burgundy question mark in the post title.

Exhibit A:
Only four years ago, there was growing concern from certain commentators that U.S. businesses had lost their edge on the world stage. At that time, only three of the world’s 10 largest companies (by total market capitalization) were based in the U.S. Many of the top-10 names were made up of hybrid firms; run by their governments but with the free market twist of ownership availability through stock exchanges. Now, the innovation and leadership inherent in private enterprise has made a strong comeback. Since 2009, the 10 largest state-controlled firms in the world have lost 60%, or $2.2 trillion, of their value. Today, U.S.-based companies make up nine of the 10 largest firms in the world. Additionally, despite having only approximately 4.5% of the world’s total population, the U.S. is home to more than half of the 50 largest corporations in the world.
(Source: The Economist)
Exhibit B:
“A government shutdown is off the table. We’re not going to do it.”
— Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell when asked if another government shutdown was possible in January or February when the current budget deal expires.

Flipping Off Police Officers Constitutional, Federal Court Affirms

Quote:
WASHINGTON -- A police officer can't pull you over and arrest you just because you gave him the finger, a federal appeals court declared Thursday.

In a 14-page opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit ruled that the "ancient gesture of insult is not the basis for a reasonable suspicion of a traffic violation or impending criminal activity."
