now, and has been for awhile, a Plutocracy. The country is by and large

pathetic too often bought parasite "politicians" and the ridiculous
idiotic ruling of Citizens United-make lobbying illegal. If you are a

its lowest since the 19th century- disappointed when Obama renewed the

and Christie in New Jersey, have embraced this Medicaid expansion as a
sweetheart deal: The federal government will pay all costs for new
enrollees for three years, ponying up 90 percent thereafter. But other
GOP leaders who despise government are content to put the health of
millions at risk rather than sacrifice ideology. Rick Perry in Texas,
calls Social Security a "disease", refusing to expand Medicaid, claiming
it would "threaten even Texas with financial ruin." In fact, Perry is

31413/kills me not to be in the Whitehouse

/31413/It kills me not to be in the Whitehouse~Mitt/Clinical Dilemma: Recommending Pot To Patients : NPR
TALK OF THE NATION. I'm Neal Conan, in Washington. In 18 states and
the District of Columbia, marijuana is medicine by popular vote. A lot of
doctors don't see it that way. They say pot presents problems that
include potency, efficacy, corruption, and of course it's still illegal
under federal law. imho, doctors are human like anyone else, and if they
are hardwired to feel marijuana is illegal or not " good", they will be
reluctant to order it-You can't prescribe marijuana anywhere. Doctors
recommend it. It's not a medicine that you can prescribe anywhere. So the
issue is recommendation. And what we're talking about with Dr. Bostwick
is a thoughtful consideration of a physician who's got an ongoing
relationship with a patient when the patient's got a lot of problems
after having tried a lot of other medications. That's not what medical
marijuana is about in this country. Ninety percent-plus of the marijuana
recommendations are sold by doctors who virtually the only thing they're
doing is putting out those recommendations. CONAN: And is too fine a
point to call that corruption? DUPONT: It's a kind of de facto
legalization-when you get the certificate, you go to a dispensary, and
you pick out how much you want, of which thing, and it's a discussion
that bears no relationship to medicine anywhere in the country. That's
what medical marijuana is as it's going on in the country today. CONAN:
But Dr. Bostwick, yes, there is that, and that's hard to deny, and when
you see signs, neon signs, it's a little difficult to equate that with
medicine, yet there are oncology patients and others who benefit from
marijuana. BOSTWICK: Well, one of the challenges here is that marijuana
has been used medicinally for 5,000 years, and including in the U.S. for
100 years legally. And the illegal, the Schedule One designation of
marijuana, which made it illegal, was actually a political decision as
well, not supported by science, because the science hadn't yet been done.
CONAN: Schedule One, of course, is federal law, but go ahead. BOSTWICK:
Right, federal law, but the effect of being a Schedule One drug is that
it's very difficult to do research on that drug, there's enough
literature, much of it anecdotal, to support that marijuana is not
completely without any kind of benefit. That being said, Dr. DuPont's
description of particularly the situation in Colorado is very accurate
and quite crazy. (LAUGHTER) DUPONT: You were talking about the history
about this, and let me just add to that, marijuana was used historically,
but by the 1930s it was virtually abandoned. It was still legally
prescribable, but nobody prescribed it. It had vanished from any kind of
use at all. So by the time the Controlled Substances Act came in 1970,
this medical use was ancient history, I think the point is that look at
what's happened to morphine. Morphine came from opium when it was
purified. And it wasn't only that morphine became used as a purified
chemical, but the synthetic analogs were developed. That is exactly the
future of cannabis. And the reason it's so interesting is I'm in favor of
that, and the people who are supporting medical marijuana are against it
because all they want is smoke dope, Marijuana has been researched by the
National Institute of Drug Abuse for nearly 40 years. And there's plenty
of research going on about that. The issue really has to do with how do
you - when you're doing the research, how do you justify studying a plant
as opposed to studying the specific chemicals. I think that's a very
difficult problem. But it is possible to do it, and the National
Institute of Drug Abuse, in that 40 years, has produced marijuana to give
to researchers so they can do studies of marijuana, this is an end-run
around that that is very dangerous, not just for the marijuana, but for
the precedent it sets for other drugs. CONAN: So given that, would you
say a recommendation of marijuana in any circumstance is malpractice?
DUPONT: No. I think the physician is dealing with - and Dr. Bostwick
presents it in a very good way. There's a different issue about what
happens with a physician talking to a patient when he's got a
relationship and is doing everything possible he or she can do to help
that patient, What happens between a doctor and the patient, that's an
entirely separate thing and a sacred thing, as far as I'm concerned,
around the issue of working with that patient-.have to wait till the next
generation of doctors- BOSTWICK: The Sativex that's currently in phase
three trials actually contains ratio of TCH to CBD, and there are
variable ratios with several different preparations of it. So yes, that
makes total sense. And certainly we know that drug dealers going only for
a high will try to get rid of the CBD. So I'm not disagreeing with that
at all. But I am saying that in the absence of these compounds that we're
talking about, theoretically, patients do titrate the medication to
effect.-PAUL: Yes. I'm a cannabis expert and a physician here in Denver,
and I take issue with the gentleman who talks about pot pushers and
things like that, because I have evaluated patients in the past,
thousands, and they are basically desperate. Eighty to 90 percent of
these people have been in pain and have been given multiple pain
medicines, and 25 percent were addicted. And you have to look at the
patient, as a whole, who's coming in and saying, OK. I don't have the

The Shame of Israel Apartheid Week The blood libel seems to have gained
respectability in the halls of academia now that Israel Apartheid Week
has become an annual rite on college campuses across North America.
Characterized by hate-speech promoted as political discourse, Israel
Apartheid Week proclaims its goal is to educate people about the nature
of Israel as an apartheid system and to build Boycott, Divestment and
Sanctions (BDS) campaigns as part of a growing global BDS movement, Its
architects contend they are not antisemitic.  However, Israel is not an
apartheid state under any definition of the term, and to argue otherwise
requires the repetition of odious lies and the denial of historical
facts. Because the claim of Israeli apartheid is a malicious fiction, the
antisemitic motivations underlying Israel Apartheid Week cannot be
minimized or ignored  By Matthew M. Hausman- On questioning the Jewish
state  What does the right of self determination mean if not the right to
be what you want to be. One peoples right to self determination negates
the right of others in the same space. The right of self determination is
not predicated on whether you will be democratic. The right of self
determination on one level is the right to discriminate. If Israel is
denied the right to favour Jews in immigration or to refuse political
rights to others in its midst, it is denied the right of self
determination. See also this rebuttal by Fresno Zionism titled A Jewish
State Can be Democratic and Moral. But I would like to make the point
that it can be undemocratic and (im)moral. Ted Belman-Defenders of
Israeli policies routinely accuse Israel’s critics of denying her right
to exist, while the critics (outside of a small group on the left, where
I now find myself) bend over backward to insist that, despite their
criticisms, of course they affirm it. The general mainstream consensus
seems to be that to deny Israels right to exist is a clear indication
of anti-Semitism (a charge Jews like myself are not immune to), and
therefore not an option for people of conscience joelavene, IsraPundit/

31113/Will the next pope embrace liberation theology? The conventional
answer would be: fat chance. The chances that a true radical will be
selected as Pope are next to nil. That’s because none are in the running.
all the eligible cardinals were appointed to their positions either by
Pope Benedict XVI or by Pope John Paul II. Both men vigilantly stacked
the deck with cardinals whose views range, in the words of one religion
professor, from conservative to ultraconservative. Liberal theologian
Hans Küng gives a harsh assessment  “They are partly responsible for the
stagnation that stifles every attempt at modernization of the church
system/John Paul II condemned “the resurgence of a certain capitalist
neoliberalism which subordinates the human person to blind market
forces-God’s Rottweiler,” leading the effort to silence creative and
non-conformist voices within Catholicism. During Ratzinger’s tenure as
doctrinal enforcer, the church is said to have officially rejected
liberation theology-Dionne argued that “An all-male hierarchy adopted
policies to cover up the [sex abuse scandal plaguing the church] and
seemed far too inclined to put protecting the church’s image ahead of
protecting children, we can at least hope for a church leader who
recognizes and validates the critical social justice work carried out
largely by nuns, rather than spending his time reprimanding women
religious. Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana. Not only would Turkson, as an
African, blasted speculative trading, reiterated previous church warnings
against “idolatry of the market,” and argued, “No one can in conscience
accept the development of some countries to the detriment of others.”
This is what has led some commentators to suggest that liberation
theology may make a comeback if Turkson becomes pope. Naunihal Singh New
Yorker, Turkson has a strong conservative side. He is notably homophobic,
even by church standards, having defended anti gay legislation in Africa
and having linked the Catholic Church’s pedophilia scandals to cultures
that are permissive of homosexuality (rather than to an internal
institutional culture that prizes secrecy, hierarchy, and obedience).
Turkson also caused a scandal last year by showing a fear-mongering and
discredited anti Muslim video to a meeting of church officials. The
British Independent has dubbed the cardinal “Conservatism’s Cape
crusader.-Hummes opposing the use of condoms to prevent the spread of
HIV/AIDS in Brazil) would open the door for the revival of social justice

It is entirely possible as a pretext that the Justice Department is
using to justify its failure to prosecute powerful friends on Wall
Street. In Washington, this possibility can never be ruled out., there is
the possibility that the Justice Department really believes that
prosecuting the criminal activities of Bank of America or JP Morgan could
sink the economy. If this is true, then it makes the case for breaking up
the big banks even more of a slam dunk, since it takes the logic of too
big to fail one step further, the simple argument against too big to fail
is that it subsidizes risk-taking by large banks. In principle, when a
bank or other company is engaged in a risky line of business, those who
are investing in the company or lending it money demand a higher rate of
return in recognition of the risk. However, if they know that government
will back up the bank if it gets into trouble, then investors have little
reason (facts) to properly evaluate the risk. it turns out that we also
give them a get out of jail free card when it comes to criminal activity,
then we are giving these banks an incentive to engage in criminal
activity. There is a lot of money to be gained by assisting drug dealers
and other nefarious types in laundering their money. In principle, the
laws are supposed to be structured to discourage banks from engaging in
such behavior. But when the attorney general tells us that the laws
cannot be fully enforced against the big banks, he is saying that we are
giving them incentive to break the law in the pursuit of profit. Our
anti trust laws are supposed to protect the country against companies
whose size allows them inordinate market power. In principle, we would
use anti trust law to break up a phone company because its market
dominance allowed it to charge us $10 a month too much on our cable. How
could we not use anti-trust policy to break up a bank whose size allows
it to profit from dealing with drug dealers and murderers with impunity?-
militarism is such an accepted fact of American life? Where there is so
little restraint placed upon the military, and so little concern for
civilian casualties?, Two books grapple with these important questions.

is? He's just guessing? and where the *&^( are you getting information

Technology and Innovation Foundation, a lobbying group, said
sequestration would leave the United States $511 billion behind in
research and development investment, compared with expected growth in
spending on research in China. CUTS, AND MORE CUTS, NIH will reduce its
budget by $1.5 billion, or 5 percent, according to estimates from the
Office of Management and Budget. The National Science Foundation (NSF)
stands to lose $290 million. NIHealth has said sequestration means it
will likely reduce funding for existing grants and it expects to make
fewer new awards in fiscal year 2013, beginning this fall. NSF said it
will absorb the cuts by awarding approximately 1,000 fewer grants in
fiscal year 2013, though it will not cut existing standard grants.
Exactly which grants might suffer is unclear. About three-fifths, or
$40.8 billion, of all university research funding in Fiscal Year 2011
came from the federal government, according to a recent National Center
for Science and Engineering Statistics survey. Money from states,
localities, foundations, individuals, companies and other sources make up
the rest-jama has targeted certain employee groups to experience some

You are hereby forbidden to tell the truth! You might motivate someone to

before diving into the propoganda-what impact all this may have (if any)
on the pharms who rely on basic govt. funded research to fill their
development of new drugs, etc. Will new drug development slow down?-You
mean to tell me we pour millions of dollars into each of these
universities, yet tuition are at an all-time high? Perhaps these schools
wouldn't be in such dire straits if they learned a few budgeting
skills-pity for all the people hurt by the cuts. How about some pity for
people like me who have been taxed into oblivion to pay for all the
government bloat, and our poor children who will have to foot the bill
for an inept and incompetent congress that can't even add. The only
problem with sequestration is that it is an order of magnitude too small-
funding from NIH and NSF is earmarked for research only in almost all
cases. It can't be used to pay professors or other general university
expenses for undergrads (energy, IT, facilities, and maintenance costs,
etc). In most large universities the education and research sides of
things are completely different entities with separate funding- Romney's
idea PBS $300 million can that be used for scientific research instead-
It's called liberal welfare. Jobs for all the archeologists! You know the
modern liberals that criticize the evil rich but praise the achievements
of past civilizations that used slave or forced labor. If you think
government jobs are good, look at the history of the building of the
Great Wall of China. The building of the wall almost destroyed an empire.
It did provide lots of jobs-i am tired of subsidizing calls made by all
members of a family of welfare cheats- agenda driven back scratching in
it's highest form-screw curing cancer, we need more drones and more dems

efficiently, like our GOV does. What a damn joke, these people need to
step out into the real world and not be in there little protect

taxpayer the little elitist mentality, high price bozos running

researchers and just giving it to people who do nothing but collect. This
takes away from the available research money- Wrong, it's the current

remember the famous photo of GW slobbering all over the King of Saudi
Arabia? It's probably somewhere on the net. It's called diplomacy, my
dear. I'm not taking a cheap shot at Bush, only pointing out that you
have a double standard, all but kissing a Saudi Prince on the mouth. It
can be accessed by googling "flicker Bush kisses Saudi Prince." The photo
is hilarious to me because I'm not one to make a big deal over these
public gestures-Every country in the Middle East is milking Uncle Sam for
foreign aide $$$. If we just stopped sending $$$ to all these a-wholes,
Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Saudi, Syria, etc etc. they'd make peace with

3813/Live long enough and you realize that politics is often extremely
contentious. The nastiness of past campaigns tends to fade away and only
good, rose-colored memories remain. I feel that Warren's comment about
constant campaigning was right on the money. I yearn for the days when
candidates were selected at the conventions and presidential campaigns
lasted for three or four months. Twenty-four months of campaigning is
cruel and unusual punishment. li/I want their definition of "Engaged in
Combat". I mean, after all, there IS a 'war on religion homosexuality

She could not see much through it, but she was able to see men in their
underwear being beaten up. "Are you fasting you animal?" she watched as
they would then take the man to a tap and let him drink, but they would
continuously slap him, beat him up and curse him while he drank the
water. She would then hear the old man thanking them for giving him
water, Tears rolled down his cheeks as he realized his fellow detainee
was a young woman, before their release. The old man thanked the
investigator. "When he spoke I realized this was the same old man who
would beg for water. I remembered his voice," she said. As the
investigator gave the man his belongings, he apologized: "Sorry old man,
we apologize, we picked you up by mistake." Keffah said crying: "All

you, presenting both sides of an issue fair and balanced doesn't fit in

side with Rebels/Terrorist in Syria who will someday wage a war
against/sabotage America/American interest-since you are giving your
opinion of CNN, give us your opinion of the terrorist Assad Al Alam TV,
Iran Press TV, and Hezbollah MANAR TV-CNN is an American media company
and they know it well that those guns pointing against Syrian Army and
civilian now will be pointed against American interest sooner or later.
But still they are supporting the campaign. Forget about those media
channel because they ain't American. Assad army won't invade American
soil but the terrorist fighting in Syria will someday soon. As history of
Sept 11" proves it all. Same terrorist attacked American Soil to whom
they supported to fight against Soviet troops in Afghanistan-Have you no
idea what Assad is systematically doing to the people of Syria? It is NOT
the same! shabiha armed men in civilian clothing who assault protesters
against Assad started off as racketeers and smugglers. But now, as
ultra-loyal enforcers of Syria's brutal regime. Long live the rebellion

that all are wrong than to stand up for what is right. Your argument is
the argument of cowards-why Guantonomo Bay is not refer to as Bush's
prisons? please not everyone here is dull-Maybe because Assad is now
considered a dictator, while Bush was never considered a dictator. Have
you perhaps thought that may be the reason why?-    I deplore racism and

you realize that is a lot of bodies/ash to bury? Almost 1.5x popn of all
boroughs of NYC - disposed of in a relatively small geographic areas in
Germany/Poland. I'm not aware of bonafide proof of artificial mountains
created either by bodies or displaced dirt-there are no FSA prisons, the
FSA does not take prisoners, they murder their prisoners by cutting off
their heads, or throwing them off buildings. I have seen all to much the
work of the FSA. I hope Assad blasts every one of you FSA and FSA
Islamist out of the middle east. He may be brutal and suck, but at least
Syria is stable and far more free than if the FSA ran the show. In order
to fight off psychos like you Islamists, you have to be even more crazy.
