About Me

DU 2 to should be introduced and married to DU 3. They should produce offspring who represent the best of both parents.

This may be the question of the month.

We have transparency here, so this makes all the sense in the world. Therefore, can we end the anonymity of alerters and juries?

I believe it will make juries more credible. I believe will level the playing field in the polarity of thought.

What say the Administrators?

Thank you,

This family thinks their dog's butt looks like Jesus...

... I mean, he's even wearing a robe.

For those of you who are looking for an astrologer...

I give you the Pele Report… http://newparadigmastrology.com/tag/pele-report

Enjoy. I do, cause he does explain the energies and placement in the type of astrology that has been discussed here. Some may find him trippy, but I'm okay with that. Many who study this and other esoterically stuff seem to be.

Most of all, there is a mantra with each week's understanding of the energy in where we are in this Karmic Wheel.

Okay… one more time, this question

I don't remember asking before about GOTV, but what does this stand for? I believe the acronym MIRT escapes me, though I think it's administrative and deals with decisions to ban, but what does the acronym stand for?

May as well ask if we have an acronym page, or is this a "duh" moment (probably, I know the answer to that)

Thanks! MMM

Is there an economic argument referenced from TX to warn people in my state of PA?

I just subscribed to this group, but have been an advocate of sustainable energies in a SW municipality where Allegheny County executive (placing pressure on county council) will force an up or down vote on fracking under the parks system, beginning in Deer Lake Park.

I've been examining Texas's experience and it sure looks like the cost to keep an intact infrastructure was over a million dollars more cost than was anticipated from each county's subsidies.

My question is if anything in this forum has been presented to address that there even IS an economic argument that holds water. The council is seeing dollar signs, and I'd like to present data to answer the TEXAS question, "Did you really make money from fracking?"



Why not help Jamaica back to prosperity?

Jamaica's first medicinal marijuana company, Medicanja, launched this year against a backdrop of reinvigorated debate around ganja law reform among leading policymakers. The renowned Jamaican scientist Dr. Henry Lowe, a leader in THC studies for medical purposes, is running the company, with the University of West Indies and the University of Technology jointly funding the facility.

Jamaican Bud Busines… This country needs a good idea for their natural resources, since the IMF and big business pretty much destroyed their other ones…


I absolutely love Jon Stewart

I don't have the video, or I'd run it in Video and Mulit-Media… (on edit, I corrected John to Jon, duh!)

Watching his show now and witnessed what so many want to do… demonstrate the idiocracy of the Fox "News" mental midgets … You gotta love someone who shows all the clips of FN's ranting about food stamp abuse of the poor, piecing together with FN's own ridiculous cast of characters the LUNATIC way they attempt to go after the abusers of those on relief, then zings them with the same cast of character's defense of corporate welfare.

Comedic brilliances, I tell you!

Feinstein: CIA searched Intelligence Committee computers

The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday sharply accused the CIA of violating federal law and undermining the constitutional principle of congressional oversight as she detailed publicly for the first time how the agency secretly removed documents from computers used by her panel to investigate a controversial interrogation program.

Video link here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/feinstein-cia-searched-intelligence-committee-computers/2014/03/11/982cbc2c-a923-11e3-8599-ce7295b6851c_story.html

What kills me is her commentary… Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said that the situation amounted to attempted intimidation of congressional investigators, adding: “I am not taking it lightly.”

Oh, bullshit, Diane. Your husband sits high in connection to the defense industry, so your word on what you take is tainted already..

Hey, Colorado… $2 MILLION in toke taxes!

Far out…

In the national briefs this morning, I see where CO made rough $2 million in marijuana taxes in January, according to their state revenue officials. This apparently is the world's first accounting of the recreational pot business.

The tax total reported by the state Dept of Revenue indicates $14,02 million worth of recreational pot was sold.

I wonder… any speeding tickets related? Naah… Domestic violence? Hmmm? Naaahhh…

Hey, how about a lot of sexual intercourse? … Ahhh! Now THAT'S something to consider!

ALEC, National Corporate Friendly 'Bill Mill', Going Local

Promoter of 'stand your ground' laws takes aim at towns across the country

- Jacob Chamberlain, Common Dreams staff writer

The conservative group American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase "going local."

According to a report in the Guardian, the Koch brothers-backed group—which has been responsible for many conservative pieces of legislation shaped in the form of ALEC "model bills"—is spring-boarding a new initiative that will focus the group's energy on issues and political campaigns in "villages, towns, cities and counties" across the country.

A local member of municipal government is quoted here whom I admire much. She and new members Pittsburgh's City Council are the only voice against the expansion of corporatism in local government, due to the likes of ALEC.

Read more and please support Common Dreams, too…
