Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley ruled Wednesday that medical marijuana dispensaries must be allowed statewide and individual municipalities cannot legally block them.

The ruling (PDF) was issued by Coakley’s Municipal Law Unit in response to a 2012 bylaw passed by officials in Wakefield, Massachusetts. Two other nearby towns also passed a similar ordinance

I assume you are not blind since you typed this post. Sex abuse by priests, worldwide has been rampant for years. Victims of child abuse rarely speak out because they are terrified and have been threatened by their abusers. Who will believe a child over the beloved priest that has come over for Sunday dinner?
However, as Galt so aptly put it; blind faith allows for abuse to continue.
I feel sorry for you. Go do some reading; it'll blow your mind.
The so-called victims and their parents share in the guilt and should not benefit financially.

I understand that names are important and don't understand why a parent would plague his/her child for life with a name that will hinder him. Some people are just ignorant. A child with such a name can always change it if he/she so chooses.
Millions of immigrants changed their names over the years to fit into American society.

Black America is moving backwards in this respect out of some false sense of pride (or something). These ridiculous names are a relatively new phenomenon.

If a 95 year old man with terminal lung cancer wanted his hip replaced by medicare because it aches a little, are you paying for it?
Galt would leave that decision to the patient and his doctor, ignoring the government flunkies.

However, no responsible physician would perform such surgery, so your hypothetical is as idiotic as most of your posts.

All future CBO projects are based on current conditions,.
You promoted a report based on a request not to include any revenue & just look at the cost. You then ran screaming though the streets how all this cost was piled onto the debt whren was not buy covered through savings & revenue generation.
This is why you are a dickheasd.
You can;'t admit that you were wrong.
Obamacare is paid for & does not add to the debt.
And you continue to be a dickhead...

read the report and quit repeating the lies told by the loony left wing. the report deals with cost-containing mechanisms, not revenues. Here, I'll help your lazy ass

" These concerns are reflected in our Alternative simulation, which, consistent with CBO’s and the CMS Actuary’s alternative scenarios ,assumes that certain cost-containment mechanisms are not sustained over the long term."

One cost containing mechanism mentioned it doctor payments. the report states that particular cost containing mechanism has historically been modified by congress. it is a reasonable assumption that it will continue to be modified. Think for yourself, sheep.

Silence On Privatiztion Is Complicity
In metro Atlanta, North America's second largest concentration of African descendants, local elites including black Democrats, are aggressively consolidating the privatization of public education and public transit. If they can do it here, with the active help or complicit silence of the black political class.....

The silence is deafening. While the state is quickly moving toward mandating MARTA to privatize its operations, there has been no word of opposition from the elected officials of Fulton and DeKalb counties and the city of Atlanta. This legislation also includes the racist reorganization of the MARTA board in favor of a mostly white led North Fulton county; revising the procedure for collective bargaining, allowing the governor to appoint an arbitrator or retired superior court judge; lifting of the 50/50 (capital/operations) split, but none of the money freed up can be used to increase employee wages or benefits; and suspension of the defined benefit pension plan for future MARTA employees. HB 264 passed the house on February 21st and has now moved to the Senate.

Begging Obama to Turn on His Banker Friends
A reformist group is petitioning President Obama to end his administration’s “too big to jail” policy. The petition assumes Obama actually wants to do the right thing, even though he has “placed corporate fat cats and their cold-blooded operatives throughout his administration from the very beginning, in positions where they can do the most harm.”

Eric Holder admitted that the administration’s policy is to go soft on banker criminality.”

A petition is now circulating that calls for signatories to “tell Obama to end too big to jail.” It’s a project of the Campaign for a Fair Settlement, which grew out of the home mortgage robo-signing scandal. Like all the other crimes involving gangsterism by the Lords of Capital, the robo-signing scandal resulted in the incarceration of not a single Wall Street executive, much less a serious criminal prosecution of the banks involved. Instead, President Obama’s Justice Department went to great lengths to arrange monetary settlements that avoided criminalizing the corporate wrongdoers. The banks were fined, but much of the money never reached the people who had been harmed. Although robo-signing and the LIBOR interest rate manipulations were both referred to as “crimes of the century,” the corporate perpetrators shrugged off the fines as merely the price of doing criminal business.

The term “too big to jail” is derived from the U.S. Attorney General’s own statements. Eric Holder admitted that the administration’s policy is to go soft on banker criminality, for fear of causing an economic crisis.“I am concerned,” said Holder,“that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them.” The banks, said the president’s top lawyer,“have become too large”– too big to jail.

MORE OBAMA 1%ersObama’s Commerce Secretary Nominee: Billionaire “Penny” Pritzker
She’s one of America’s most powerful women. Forbes estimates she’s worth $1.85 billion.

She’s also heir to the Hyatt Hotels and Pritzker family fortune. It’s net worth exceeds $20 billion.

Her official bio calls her a “civic and business leader.” She’s PSP Capital Partners founder, chairman and CEO. She also heads Pritzker Realty Group and Artemis Real Estate Partners. Previously she was involved in other family businesses.

In February 2011, Obama appointed her to the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness (PCJC). General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt headed it.

He destroyed jobs at the same time. He offshored them to low wage countries. He pretended to advise Obama on creating them. He faked it. PCJC met four times. It was a sham. It accomplished nothing.

In January 2012, it was disbanded. It never should have been established in the first place. It was smoke and mirrors. It did nothing to create jobs.

Pritzker serves on Hyatt’s board. She’s a former Wm. Wrigley, Jr. Company, Marmon Group and LaSalle Bank board member. She chaired credit reporting firm TransUnion.

She’s a Council on Foreign Relations member. She belongs to other elitist groups..

In its August 2008 “Power of Penny Pritzker” article, Bloomberg called her the “billionaire head of Barack Obama’s fundraising machine (and) the person to call when you want to ‘get the job done,’ says Warren Buffett.”

Changed their names or the case of my family the spelling to make them more user friendly. Lately however, not so much and some of the East Asian names are challenging
to say the least.

Bill Cosby, Chris Rock and other notable blacks have spoken out about tagging kids with ghetto names and to no avail, yet the trend continues.

I tend to agree; although people should be able to have freedom of expression without being discriminated against.
My kids went to school with Wayne Dyers kids; whose names were Sky and Summer!

Tell that to King Hammurabi from 1792 BC. You're an idiot, which is by the way not a new phenomenon.

There was nothing hateful in Selecias post, you're the hateful nutjob Gunner. Have a donut.
There will be those nutjobs like you who will whine and moan and groan about Obamacare and then will succumb. That's human nature.
Otherwise, I suppose they can just go out of business. It will be survival of the fittest.
Meanwhile, the taxpayers are paying your pension and healthcare while you wolf down donuts and big gulp sodas. Are you diabetic too?
Yes, that particular post wasn't hateful per se, dingbat, but don't lie lily. Selecia Jones is a hater for sure. I have read more than one vile post from her that spewed more hatred than the old KKK member would post on a wall decades ago. You are also a hater so I can see why you don't get it. You are part of the problem of division & hate in this country.

I enjoy being here to expose the haters like you two.

As far as my pension, I plan on taking it with me to a deep red state where plastic people like you do not exist.

They're smoking it anyway, have been and always will. Marijuana should be legalized completely. End the war on drugs and stop putting people in jail for pot.

I always loved this line from the King of New York; Christopher Walkin: "People spend 250 billion a year to get high; I'm not your worst problem, I'm just a businessman"
