the brains of 92 adolescents, ages 16 to 20, before and after an 18-month
period. During that year and a half, half of the teens, who already had
extensive alcohol and marijuana-use histories, continued to use marijuana
and alcohol in varying amounts. The other half abstained or kept
consumption minimal, The before-and-after brain scans of the teens
consuming typically five or more drinks at least twice a week showed
reduced white matter brain tissue health, reported that alcohol
particularly compromised boys' attention span, and girls' comprehension
and interpretation of visual information.  However, the level of
marijuana use, up to nine times a week during the 18 months , was not
linked to a change in brain tissue health-Armstrong, Known as "Satchmo"
and "Pops" to millions of fans, the trumpet maestro swore by "gage," one

the Hebrew University of Jerusalem first synthesized and elucidated the
molecular structure of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), marijuana's

revolution in medical science. In the early 1990s-Robert Randall, the

Chuck Hagel to be our next Secretary of Defense, but that's not the
point. We need people, and particularly Jewish-Americans, to come to the
defense of those who support Israel but are sometimes very critical of
their policies. I think it is a big mistake for AIPAC or the ADL or
neo-conservatives to throw the anti-Semitism label at people who have
never shown any anti-Jewish animus. I've had right-wing blogs accuse me
of anti-Semitism because of criticisms I've made of Israel's policies,
and it doesn't make me more of a supporter of Israel. I shrug that stuff
off, but not without a certain degree of irritation and impatience. Let's
be frank for a moment. It isn't easy to be a supporter of Israel. It may
be easy for those who seek high office in the United States, It simply
isn't possible to defend their expansion of the settlements, and that
makes it harder to defend everything else they do, as Israel pursues its
own self-defense they too often do damage to their own self-interest.
their policies as much for the harm they do to Israelis as Palestinians,
they should not be called anti-Semitic. It's misguided both because it is
wrong and unfair, and because it pushes allies away. If Chuck Hagel isn't
pro-Israel enough to be Secretary of Defense, then a lot of people are
going to feel like maybe they don't feel like being pro-Israel anymore-

The thirteen states formed a loose confederation with a very weak federal
government t caused the leaders of the time to come together at the
Constitutional Convention and create, in secret, the US Constitution.
Strong proponents of states rights like Thomas Jefferson and Patrick
Henry were not present at this meeting. Many felt that the new
constitution ignored the rights of states to continue to act
independently. They felt that the states should still have the right to
decide if they were willing to accept certain federal acts, One of the
provisions was the fugitive slave act that was discussed in number one
above. Another issue that further increased tensions was the Kansas
Nebraska Act of 1854. It created two new territories that would allow the
states to use popular sovereignty to determine whether they would be free
or slave. The real issue occurred in Kansas where proslavery Missourians
began to pour into the state to help force it to be slave. They were
called "Border Ruffians." Problems came to a head in violence at Lawrence
Kansas. The fighting that occurred caused it to be called " Bleeding
Kansas." The fight even erupted on the floor of the senate when

Nugent shifts blame from lax gun control, poor mental health programs,
inadequate security at schools and violence in the media to the moral
decay of society. The ugly and dangerous truth is that we live in an
embarrassing, politically correct culture that exalts and rejoices in the
bizarre; aggressively promotes an “anything goes” value system; and
vilifies, condemns and mocks traditional societal values and customs at
every opportunity. We’ve embraced a culture of contempt that attacks the
very institutions that make for a healthy and strong society, and then
we’re shocked when it spirals out of control. The only thing I’m shocked
about is that anybody is shocked, Nugent, disgruntled at the possibility

violence is meaningless because you can't tell if a person using it is
referring to aggression or defense. BIG difference. Aggression is crime,
violation. Defense is a duty an obligation. If you don't defend the
children with whose care you are entrusted, you are the wrongdoer. Your
kids depend on you to keep them safe. Because the word violence can be
used for either aggression or defense, which are two completely different
things, liars who want to manipulate and mislead you can say things like
'guns have no other purpose but violence.' However they DO serve a
purpose other than aggression, and that is defense. The right to defend
yourself from aggressors, especially if the aggressors become the people
you trusted to keep you safe, is a basic human right- hagel, GOP Hates

from the government's own central bank. If the government refinanced its
entire debt through the Federal Reserve, it could save nearly half a
trillion dollars annually in interest, since the Fed rebates its profits

monthly in government securities purchases to the $40 billion for
mortgaged-backed securities declared in QE3, and no time limit has been
designated for ending the program. Forty-five billion dollars monthly is
more than half a trillion yearly. Added to the federal debt already held
by the Fed, the whole $16 trillion federal debt could be bought back in
28 years. This is not a wild, untested idea. Borrowing interest-free from
its central bank was done by Canada from 1939 to 1974, by France from

Joke If you've ever been arrested on a drug charge, if you've ever spent even
a day in jail for having a stem of marijuana in your pocket or "drug
paraphernalia" in your gym bag, Assistant Attorney General and longtime
Bill Clinton pal Lanny Breuer has a message for you: Bite me.
Breuer this week signed off on a settlement deal with the British banking
giant HSBC that is the ultimate insult to every ordinary person who's
ever had his life altered by a narcotics charge. Despite the fact that
HSBC admitted to laundering billions of dollars for Colombian and Mexican
drug cartels (among others) and violating a host of important banking
laws (from the Bank Secrecy Act to the Trading With the Enemy Act),
Breuer and his Justice Department elected not to pursue criminal
prosecutions of the bank, opting instead for a "record" financial
settlement of $1.9 billion, which as one analyst noted is about five
weeks of income for the bank.
The banks' laundering transactions were so brazen that the NSA probably
could have spotted them from space. Breuer admitted that drug dealers
would sometimes come to HSBC's Mexican branches and "deposit hundreds of
thousands of dollars in cash, in a single day, into a single account,
using boxes designed to fit the precise dimensions of the teller
This bears repeating: in order to more efficiently move as much illegal
money as possible into the "legitimate" banking institution HSBC, drug
dealers specifically designed boxes to fit through the bank's teller
windows. Tony Montana's henchmen marching dufflebags of cash into the
fictional "American City Bank" in Miami was actually more subtle than
what the cartels were doing when they washed their cash through one of
Britain's most storied financial institutions.
Though this was not stated explicitly, the government's rationale in not
pursuing criminal prosecutions against the bank was apparently rooted in
concerns that putting executives from a "systemically important
institution" in jail for drug laundering would threaten the stability of
the financial system. The New York Times put it this way:
Federal and state authorities have chosen not to indict HSBC, the
London-based bank, on charges of vast and prolonged money laundering, for
fear that criminal prosecution would topple the bank and, in the process,
endanger the financial system. It doesn't take a genius to see that the reasoning here is beyond flawed.
When you decide not to prosecute bankers for billion-dollar crimes
connected to drug-dealing and terrorism (some of HSBC's Saudi and
Bangladeshi clients had terrorist ties, according to a Senate
investigation), it doesn't protect the banking system, it does exactly
the opposite. It terrifies investors and depositors everywhere, leaving
them with the clear impression that even the most "reputable" banks may
in fact be captured institutions whose senior executives are in the
employ of (this can't be repeated often enough) murderers and terrorists.
Even more shocking, the Justice Department's response to learning about
all of this was to do exactly the same thing that the HSBC executives did
in the first place to get themselves in trouble    “ they took money to
look the other way.

And not only did they sell out to drug dealers, they sold out cheap.
You'll hear bragging this week by the Obama administration that they
wrested a record penalty from HSBC, but it's a joke. Some of the
penalties involved will literally make you laugh out loud. This is from
Breuer's announcement: As a result of the government's investigation, HSBC has . . . "clawed
back" deferred compensation bonuses given to some of its most senior U.S.
anti-money laundering and compliance officers, and agreed to partially
defer bonus compensation for its most senior officials during the
five-year period of the deferred prosecution agreement. Wow. So the
executives who spent a decade laundering billions of dollars will have to
partially defer their bonuses during the five-year deferred prosecution
agreement? Are you ####### kidding me? That's the punishment? The
government's negotiators couldn't hold firm on forcing HSBC officials to
completely wait to receive their ill-gotten bonuses? They had to settle
on making them "partially" wait? Every honest prosecutor in America has
to be puking his guts out at such bargaining tactics. What was the
Justice Department's opening offer, asking executives to restrict their
Caribbean vacation time to nine weeks a year? So you might ask, what's
the appropriate financial penalty for a bank in HSBC's position? Exactly
how much money should one extract from a firm that has been shamelessly
profiting from business with criminals for years and years? Remember,
we're talking about a company that has admitted to a smorgasbord of
serious banking crimes. If you're the prosecutor, you've got this bank by
the balls. So how much money should you take? How about all of it? How
about every last dollar the bank has made since it started its illegal
activity? How about you dive into every bank account of every single
executive involved in this mess and take every last bonus dollar they've
ever earned? Then take their houses, their cars, the paintings they
bought at Sotheby's auctions, the clothes in their closets, the loose
change in the jars on their kitchen counters, every last freaking thing.
Take it all and don't think twice. And then throw them in jail. Sound
harsh? It does, doesn't it? The only problem is, that's exactly what the
government does just about every day to ordinary people involved in
ordinary drug cases. It'd be interesting, for instance, to ask the
residents of Tenaha, Texas what they think about the HSBC settlement.
That's the town where local police routinely pulled over (mostly black)
motorists and, whenever they found cash, offered motorists a choice: They
could either allow police to seize the money, or face drug and money
laundering charges. Or we could ask Anthony Smelley, the Indiana resident
who won $50,000 in a car accident settlement and was carrying about $17K
of that in cash in his car when he got pulled over. Cops searched his car
and had drug dogs sniff around: The dogs alerted twice. No drugs were
found, but police took the money anyway. Even after Smelley produced
documentation proving where he got the money from, Putnam County
officials tried to keep the money on the grounds that he could have used
the cash to buy drugs in the future. Seriously, that happened. It happens
all the time, and even Lanny Breuer's own Justice Deparment gets into the
act. In 2010 alone, U.S. Attorneys' offices deposited nearly $1.8 billion
into government accounts as a result of forfeiture cases, most of them
drug cases. You can see the Justice Department's own statistics right
here: If you get pulled over in America with cash and the government even
thinks it's drug money, that cash is going to be buying your local
sheriff or police chief a new Ford Expedition tomorrow afternoon. And
that's just the icing on the cake. The real prize you get for interacting
with a law enforcement officer, if you happen to be connected in any way
with drugs, is a preposterous, outsized criminal penalty. Right here in
New York, one out of every seven cases that ends up in court is a
marijuana case. Just the other day, while Breuer was announcing his slap
on the wrist for the world's most prolific drug-launderers, I was in
arraignment court in Brooklyn watching how they deal with actual people.
A public defender explained the absurdity of drug arrests in this city.
New York actually has fairly liberal laws about pot    “ police aren't
supposed to bust you if you possess the drug in private. So how do police
work around that to make 50,377 pot-related arrests in a single year,
just in this city? Tthat was 2010; the 2009 number was 46,492.)
"What they do is, they stop you on the street and tell you to empty your
pockets," the public defender explained. "Then the instant a pipe or a
seed is out of the pocket it's boom, it's 'public use.' And you get
arrested." People spend nights in jail, or worse. In New York, even if
they let you off with a misdemeanor and time served, you have to pay $200
and have your DNA extracted it's process that you have to pay for (it
costs 50 bucks). But even beyond that, you won't have search very far for
stories of draconian, idiotic sentences for nonviolent drug crimes.
Just ask Cameron Douglas, the son of Michael Douglas, who got five years
in jail for simple possession. His jailers kept him in solitary for 23
hours a day for 11 months and denied him visits with family and friends.
Although your typical non-violent drug inmate isn't the white child of a
celebrity, he's usually a minority user who gets far stiffer sentences
than rich white kids would for committing the same crimes  we all
remember the crack-versus-coke controversy in which federal and state
sentencing guidelines left (predominantly minority) crack users serving
sentences up to 100 times harsher than those meted out to the
predominantly white users of powdered coke. The institutional bias in the
crack sentencing guidelines was a racist outrage, but this HSBC
settlement blows even that away. By eschewing criminal prosecutions of
major drug launderers on the grounds (the patently absurd grounds,
incidentally) that their prosecution might imperil the world financial
system, the government has now formalized the double standard. They're
now saying that if you're not an important cog in the global financial
system, you can't get away with anything, not even simple possession. You
will be jailed and whatever cash they find on you they'll seize on the
spot, and convert into new cruisers or toys for your local SWAT team,
which will be deployed to kick in the doors of houses where more such
inessential economic cogs as you live. If you don't have a systemically
important job, in other words, the government's position is that your
assets may be used to finance your own political disenfranchisement. On
the other hand, if you are an important person, and you work for a big
international bank, you won't be prosecuted even if you launder nine
billion dollars. Even if you actively collude with the people at the very
top of the international narcotics trade, your punishment will be far
smaller than that of the person at the very bottom of the world drug
pyramid. You will be treated with more deference and sympathy than a
junkie passing out on a subway car in Manhattan (using two seats of a
subway car is a common prosecutable offense in this city). An
international drug trafficker is a criminal and usually a murderer; the
drug addict walking the street is one of his victims. But thanks to
Breuer, we're now in the business, officially, of jailing the victims and
enabling the criminals. This is the disgrace to end all disgraces. It
doesn't even make any sense. There is no reason why the Justice
Department couldn't have snatched up everybody at HSBC involved with the
trafficking, prosecuted them criminally, and worked with banking
regulators to make sure that the bank survived the transition to new
management. As it is, HSBC has had to replace virtually all of its senior
management. The guilty parties were apparently not so important to the
stability of the world economy that they all had to be left at their
desks. So there is absolutely no reason they couldn't all face criminal
penalties. That they are not being prosecuted is cowardice and pure
corruption, nothing else. And by approving this settlement, Breuer
removed the government's moral authority to prosecute anyone for any
other drug offense. Not that most people didn't already know that the
drug war is a joke, but this makes it official. rbgrush sleazling

121212/Christian fundamentalist bigots have taken over West Point, Blake
Page, a 24-year-old cadet in his 4 th year at West Point, created a storm
on November 19 when he announced he was leaving in protest over religious
discrimination and church state boundary violations. In his letter of
resignation he stated, “I do not wish to be in any way associated with an
institution which willfully disregards the Constitution of the United
States of America by enforcing policies which run counter to the same,
Page minced no words: “Countless officers here and throughout the
military are guilty of blatantly violating the oaths they swore to defend
the Constitution through unconstitutional proselytism, discrimination
against the non-religious and establishing formal policies to reward,
encourage and even at times require sectarian religious participation

Legalization Is Coming Such draconian measures would do nothing to curb
marijuana use, particularly in Colorado, where the new law empowers
citizens to grow up to six plants and share up to an ounce of their weed
with other adults. "Thanks to homegrow," says Vicente, who coauthored the
law, "we will still have legal adult access" – no matter how hard the
feds crack down on commercial growers and retailers Local police are now
free to focus their resources on crimes of violence, and cops can no
longer use the pretext of smelling dope as a license for unwarranted
searches. "That gets us into so many cars and pockets and homes,

going up and up with no end in sight, not everyone qualifies for food
assistance, Government sponsored television seems to feel that they need
$100 per household per month, Black hills energy is stickin it too us
every chance they get, also wanting a minimum of $100 per household per
month, fuel prices are out of control and unchecked, and if the
government fucks us like they always do, there will be no unemployment
after Jan 1. Unemployment is very high here as well. BUT,, we have a
whole collection of new government buildings in the city. Totally fucked
up city streets downtown, but new buildings for the government. You
dumbassed government idiots, don't you realize that we the citizens ARE
your source of income? How about throwing US a bone once in a while! Now
back to reality. Welfare is going to get cut, medicaid too, so the stereo
stores and tire shops are going to suffer, without welfare, they won't be
selling as many 18's, ugly wheels, and thumpin stereos, so you can expect
their prices to go through the roof so they can keep making their
profits, priced tires lately? What the fuck happened there??? All these
lousy worthless fucks in Washington are the cause of all this, yes, those
that serve ONE term without paying into social security, and they and
their families are set for the rest of their lives. All of you living on
plastic probably don't feel the crunch yet, but you will when you max out
your shit, robberies are going to become a sport, and assaults will
follow suit. All you naysayers will be in for a rude awakening. Bye-
Trash/Socialism A person makes only so much money. He barely affords the
utilities and rent. The root of all our financial problems of late,
(fuel) prices, is strangling us to begin with. Those fuel prices are
driving up food production and delivery prices which flow right on to the
shelves of the store for us to try to pay. Fuel and food. Now add suck
assed black hills energy and their greed. Add government backed
television which is for most, the only entertainment they can afford, now
this person is out of money. The recession is still and always has been
here since it started-we never came out of it, but the media is told to
tell us we had to boost our spirits which a smart person would know
better, and they do, a recession combined with run away inflation is a no
win situation as is evidenced by the increase in robberies, burglaries,
thefts. So WITH the recession, inflation, and increase in crime, let's
throw in some socialism. Forced trash service. Pure socialism. To the
trunk of disposable cash and hording money, and thinking you can make us
let go of some of that imaginary cash is BULLSHIT. Dumbasses,,,,,, we
have no money for what you say we have to have. I'll say it again: WHERE
ANOTHER THING???? Goddamn dumbassed government fuckheads. WHERE THE HELL
tell the rest of us how making every home have trash service (socialism)
is going to do ANYTHING towards that problem. Magically that problem will
go away because of "Mandatory" trash service? How IS life in lala land?
