Good thing all liberal politicians - including presidents, secretaries of the treasury, heads of the justice department, secretaries of state, governors and congressmen - are all on the same side of the fence as the corrupt liberal media.

We're screwed and for no other reason than a corrupt liberal media.

I have serious doubts enough Americans are even paying attention - much less recognize corruption in the media as the clear and present danger to our republic and what was once our democratic system.

And the scary thing is the 'mean lean lying liberal machine' knows more and more Americans are either too dumb to care or too willing to follow the crowd the wrong way out of this capsized ship with them leading the way.

Driest California in 500 Years?
“This could potentially be the driest water year in 500 years,” says B. Lynn Ingram, a University of California at Berkeley paleoclimatologist.
Assuming the drought continues, it’s going to have huge and complex effects. Among them:
* Farmers are going to fallow land or pump lots of groundwater, depleting the aquifers for future years.(And water-stealing illegal pot-growers may get pursued more vigorously.)* Some towns may run out out of water; the small community of Willits in Mendocino, has only a 100-day supply left.* Summer wildfires were bad last year (remember the huge Yosemite blaze?)—but with the state even crisper, things may now get worse.* Some rivers will go dry.(Fish always seem to have the last dibs on water in times of drought.)* Air pollution will continue to be a problem. The unusually hot, stagnant air has made it the worst pollution season ever in the San Joaquin Valley. It’s triggered purple alert days in Bakersfield, worse than the usual red—and that’s may continue for awhile. Bay Area winter pollution is also nearing a record.
Then there’s politics. Water was already bound to be a big topic this year in California, what with the state’s $25 billion proposal to fix the Delta, the confluence of two rivers where much Sierra Nevada water flows through. It’s an incredible sum—far more than, say, the $2 billion in extra spending that Texas agonized over last year. But voters may be more open after a few dry years.""

Another ignorant Sloth. If Women do not have The Right to Choose because Their Bodies are not THEIR BODIES, then whose Bodies are they? Who are you? A Stepford Wife?

- Prostitution is quite "LEGAL" if The John IS a Judge, Politician or Man of Status/Prominence ...
Your ignorance conveniently overlooked this FACT.

- Attempted Suicide is not ILLEGAL. One is not charged with a crime, most often they are psychologically evaluated, depending on evaluation, may be placed in a Hospital for psychiatric Care/Treatment.
Suicide is only against Biblical Law/Teachings in the eyes of God, not The State.

- It is The Drugs that are illegal. Most often Dealers DO NOT ( do ) put those drugs into their bodies. The Government wants the Drug Bust of The Dealers & The Distributors.
AND that Illegal Drug Use for Medicinal & Recreational purposes is CHANGING, mija.
Drug Use has NOTHING to do with Our Bodies Not Being Our Own, you myopic mental midget. Alcohol was Illegal, at one time, too.

-Because The Government, at the Local, State & Federal Level think(?) they know what is best for you. Perhaps in your case, they do.

-**Then USE IT Lemming ... And stop grabbing at it from the bottom of a Cereal Box.

If it was, then, why is prostitution still illegal nearly everywhere?
If our bodies are OUR bodies why is attempted suicide a crime?
If our bodies are OUR bodies why is recreational drug use a crime?
If our bodies are OUR bodies why is the consumption of certain foods (no big gulps for you!) a crime?

Eric Holder Just Announced A Major Shift On U.S. Marijuana Policy
Reuters | By David Ingram

""Jan 23 (Reuters)- U.S. treasury and law enforcement agencies will soon issue regulations opening banking services to state-sanctioned marijuana businesses even though cannabis remains classified an illegal narcotic under federal law, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Thursday.

Holder said the new rules would address problems faced by newly licensed recreational pot retailers in Colorado, and medical marijuana dispensaries in other states, in operating on a cash-only basis, without access to banking services or credit.

Proprietors of state-licensed marijuana distributors in Colorado and elsewhere have complained of having to purchase inventory, pay employees and conduct sales entirely in cash, requiring elaborate and expensive security measures and putting them at a high risk of robbery.

It also makes accounting for state sales tax-collection purposes difficult.

"You don't want just huge amounts of cash in these places," Holder told the audience at the University of Virginia. "They want to be able to use the banking system. And so we will be issuing some regulations I think very soon to deal with that issue."

Holder's comments echoed remarks by his deputy, James Cole, in September during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill.

Colorado this month became the first state to open retail outlets legally permitted to sell marijuana to adults for recreational purposes, in a system similar to what many states have long had in place for alcohol sales.

Washington state is slated to launch its own marijuana retail network later this year, and several other states, including California, Oregon and Alaska, are expected to consider legalizing recreational weed in 2014.

The number of states approving marijuana for medical purposes has also been growing. California was the first in 1996, and has since been followed by about 20 other states and the District of Columbia.

But the fledgling recreational pot markets in Colorado and Washington state have sent a new wave of cannabis proprietors clamoring to obtain loans and make deposits in banks and credit unions.

The Justice Department announced in August that the administration would give new latitude to states experimenting with taxation and regulation of marijuana.""

You call that a poll??

Ask the folks in Ukraine what they think of Dictator Putin!!

Nice try, Waxman!!

One nitwit uses another nitwit as a reference.

Who is Bob Livingston?

Bob is an ultra-conservative American nitwit who has been writing a newsletter since 1969. Bob has devoted much of his life to research and the quest for truth on a variety of subjects. Bob specializes in health issues such as nutritional supplements and alternatives to drugs as well as issues of privacy (both personal & financial), asset protection and the preservation of freedom.

After 35 years, the daring Lufthansa heist of $6 million in cash and jewels at JFK International airport had become the stuff of legend, thanks to the Goodfellas movie, while the robbers remained on the loose.

The only person ever convicted in the case was a Lufthansa cargo agent, described as the "inside man" in the daring pre-dawn robbery.

Federal prosecutors say that has changed with the FBI arrest Thursday of a 78-year-old reputed mobster, Vincent Asaro, who was charged with helping plan and take part in the stickup.

Federal prosecutors say in court filings that Asaro's alleged role was corroborated by four cooperating witnesses, including informants from three different crime families..

The break apparently came in 2011 when Asaro was taped allegedly complaining to an FBI informant that he never got his cut from the Lufthansa heist.
