legalizing marijuana: the golden state's pot of gold?

ahead of state-wide vote in november,
marijuana legalization battle heats up in california

legalizing marijuana: the golden state's pot of gold?from news junkie post: This week, a ballot initiative to legalize marijuana possession by adults qualified for the California ballot. The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010 is coming up for a vote.

While all the standard, well-worn pot jokes and cliches were quickly pressed into service, it’s becoming obvious that unlike failed legalization initiatives in the past (of which California has had at least two), the debate will this time center around money.

California has once again become the focal point of a long-running battle over liberalizing the pot laws. Observers predict plenty of money will be spent, by both sides, in an attempt to either launch or squash what many see as an inevitable national trend.

The cultural and financial landscape has changed a lot since legalization was last on the California ballot in 1996, especially since medical marijuana passed that same year and helped to reshape popular perceptions of the herb’s usefulness.

The that pace of change was given new impetus by the Obama Administration’s announcement last yearfederal drug agents are being instructed to lay off pot patients and providers in states where medical marijuana is legal...

The initiative [336kb PDF] would legalize possession, sharing and transport of up to an ounce of pot for personal use by adults 21 and older. Marijuana could be privately grown in spaces of up to 25 square feet. Marijuana use would still be banned in public places and in the presence of minors.

Local governments, but not the state, could impose marijuana taxes to raise revenues. Cities and counties could authorize cultivation, transportation and sale of pot, and in a controversial provision, could also locally ban marijuana.

erykah badu gets naked & hits raw nerve at jfk killing scene

erykah badu gets naked & hits raw nerve at jfk killing scenefrom afp: Iconoclastic R&B singer Erykah Badu has struck a raw nerve in the United States, not just for stripping off in her new video but for being completely comfortable in her own skin precisely where John F. Kennedy was slain.

In her new video "Window Seat," filmed in Dallas, which lasts a longer-than-average five minutes and 35 seconds, Badu -- once known for her towering turbans -- progressively loses her clothes, keeps walking in black lingerie and then peacefully strips.

Badu, who was born in Dallas, in February 1971, just released a new CD "New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh."

Some of her fans were surprised at the public undress but she sent a message on microblog site Twitter saying "the people caught in the shot were trying hard to ignore me. LOL cept one guy grabbing clothes... it was the peeps off camera yelling."

Once appalled onlooker told her "THIS IS A PUBLIC PLACE : YOU OUGHTA BE ASHAMED : PUT YOUR CLOTHES ON : DAMN GIRL! etc," Badu added on the site, saying she has always shared her own vulnerable, naked truth.

A Dallas Morning News report cited police as saying Badu could face a charge for indecent exposure.

judge invalidates human gene patent

genetic shock: 'dna unpatentable' says ny district court
judge invalidates human gene patentfrom nytimes: A federal judge on Monday struck down patents on two genes linked to breast and ovarian cancer. The decision, if upheld, could throw into doubt the patents covering thousands of human genes and reshape the law of intellectual property.

United States District Court Judge Robert W. Sweet issued the 152-page decision [881kb PDF], which invalidated seven patents related to the genes BRCA1 and BRCA2, whose mutations have been associated with cancer.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the Public Patent Foundation at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York joined with individual patients and medical organizations to challenge the patents last May: they argued that genes, products of nature, fall outside of the realm of things that can be patented. The patents, they argued, stifle research and innovation and limit testing options.

Myriad Genetics, the company that holds the patents with the University of Utah Research Foundation, asked the court to dismiss the case, claiming that the work of isolating the DNA from the body transforms it and makes it patentable. Such patents, it said, have been granted for decades; the Supreme Court upheld patents on living organisms in 1980. In fact, many in the patent field had predicted the courts would throw out the suit.

Judge Sweet, however, ruled that the patents were “improperly granted” because they involved a “law of nature.” He said that many critics of gene patents considered the idea that isolating a gene made it patentable “a ‘lawyer’s trick’ that circumvents the prohibition on the direct patenting of the DNA in our bodies but which, in practice, reaches the same result.”

The case could have far-reaching implications. About 20 percent of human genes have been patented, and multibillion-dollar industries have been built atop the intellectual property rights that the patents grant.

all public safety & police radios down in district of criminals

all public safety & police radios down in district of criminalsfrom myfoxdc: D.C. Police sources tell FOX 5 that radio communications are down citywide in the District, and police officers on the street have no way to receive or respond to calls via radio.

Sources tell FOX 5 that communication went down sometime around 7:15 p.m. on Monday night. That source also told FOX 5's Will Thomas that officers in the field have no way to respond to calls from dispatch via radio.

Some officers were returning to headquarters, and some were being asked to communicate by cell phone while the outage is investigated and repaired. The D.C. Office of Unified Communication is working on the issue, but there's no word what caused it...

A police union spokesperson told FOX 5 this may not be the first time the radio system has gone down in the last month.

moscow metro blasts: another fsb inside job?

russia's black widow suicide bombers make a return
moscow metro blasts: another fsb inside job?from paul joseph watson: Two separate bomb blasts that ripped apart trains on the Moscow Metro system, killing at least 34 people during morning rush-hour, have been blamed on female suicide bombers, but previous instances of terrorism in Russia were proven to be the work of the FSB security service itself.

The first explosion took place on a train after it had stopped in the Lubyanka station in central Moscow, close to the headquarters of Russia’s FSB security service, a spokeswoman for the Russian emergencies ministry told AFP.”

The first blast at the Lubyanka metro station killed 22 people and wounded 12. The second at Park Kulturi station left 12 dead and 7 wounded,” reported AFP.

ground zero: american apoplexy

ground zero: american apoplexyfrom clyde lewis: There is a very critical problem facing America. There is a large wound on our mass consciousness and everyone wants to blame someone for their pain. Arguments between the right and left have polarized the entire country from healing this wound. What the wounded fail to realize is that in their panic, as the feel the hemorrhaging from their souls, just who is responsible for pouring salt in the wound.

The blame game runs the gambit, from the Jews to the terrorists, from the gays to the immigrants and from the blacks to the staunch conservative to the politically correct white liberal. Everyone is screaming and wanting their victimhood acknowledged. They project their fears and their spiritual debt on everything and look to politics to father them into safety and to deliver them to some promised land.

When Republicans were in power, the uneducated masses took delight and cheered on all kinds of unconstitutional legislation and executive abuses signed into law by George W. bush. Now the democrats are happy with the extended policies of the Bush Administration under the direction of Barack Obama. The Democrats have acclimated to the fascist policies of Bush under the direction of Obama and now Conservatives are blaming Obama for the injustices that the previous administration implemented.

decider-in-chief bypasses congress, then visits his afghanisurge

obama bypasses senate process, filling 15 posts
obama bypasses senate process, filling 15 postsfrom nytimes: President Obama, making a muscular show of his executive authority just one day after Congress left for spring recess, said Saturday that he would bypass the Senate and install 15 appointees, including a union lawyer whose nomination to the National Labor Relations Board was blocked last month with the help of two Democrats.

Coming on the heels of Mr. Obama’s big victory on health care legislation, Saturday’s move suggests a newly emboldened president who is unafraid to provoke a confrontation with the minority party.

Just two days ago, all 41 Senate Republicans sent Mr. Obama a letter urging him not to appoint the union lawyer, Craig Becker, during the recess. Mr. Obama’s action, in defiance of the Republicans, was hailed by union leaders, but it also seemed certain to intensify the partisan rancor that has enveloped Washington.

The United States Senate has the responsibility to approve or disprove of my nominees,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. “But if, in the interest of scoring political points, Republicans in the Senate refuse to exercise that responsibility, I must act in the interest of the American people and exercise my authority to fill these positions on an interim basis.”

It was the first time the president has used his constitutional authority to fill vacant federal positions by making recess appointments, thus avoiding the requirement for the advice and consent of the Senate. Mr. Obama, who currently has 217 nominees pending and 77 awaiting action on the Senate floor, said Republicans had given him little choice.

world mourns as communist darkness falls upon america

world mourns as communist darkness falls upon americafrom before it's news: In what is being described as one of the most astounding power grabs in modern history by newspaper headlines around the World, President Obama has succeeded in his audacious plan to remake America into a full fledged godless communist empire barely one year into his term with the enactment into law by the US Congress of his mammoth health care plan innocuously named H.R. 3200-Americas Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 and described by one Kremlin legal expert as having nothing at all to do with health, but everything to do with control.”

To fully grasp the full and grim implications of Obama’s power grab over the American people with his Nationalization of the United States entire health care industry and student loan programme accomplished with the passing of this new law, it must be remembered that since taking office on January 20, 2009 he has also taken over their automobile,  mortgage, and banking industries too with the Internet said being next “in his sights”.

'zionism is stupid' & other incendiary situations

israeli professor proclaims 'zionism is stupid'
israeli professor proclaims 'zionism is stupid'from richard grove: During a recent interview, wherein Professor Shlomo Sand was being interviewed by a colleague of mine; I found myself witnessing a rare opportunity to take an apparent contradiction in history. As a result, herein I offer the data which helps to dissolve the illusions which are the root cause of these contradictions, thereby offering a unifying solution to the apparent schism...

Jan Irvin: "Is Judaism a Race or a Religion, and what do you say to those that claim that it is a Race?"

Prof. Shlomo Sand: "They are stupid, exactly like the anti-Semitics, I think the Zionists that thought in the past that Jewishness is a race, pure or not pure, are stupid - exactly like the anti-Semitics that thought that the Jewish are a Race. All my book is a kind of declaration, that Jewishness cannot be a Race, the origins of most of the Jews is not from Palestine… and most of the Jewish came from conversion."

Note that a few weeks prior to all of this, Irvin published this iconoclastic conversation, with a Rabbi who had presented Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with an award for his goodwill and outstanding relationship with Orthodox Jews living in Iran: “Against Zionism- An Interview with Rabbi Yisrel Dovid Weiss”; therein demonstrating Ahmadinejad to be anti-Zionist, not anti-Semitic.

wall street despised in poll showing most want real regulation

wall street despised in poll showing most want real regulationfrom bloomberg: Americans are leery about creating a new federal agency to make consumer-protection rules for mortgages and credit cards and would prefer to enhance the existing powers of banking regulators. Most people interviewed in the Bloomberg National Poll say they don’t like Wall Street, banks or insurance companies and favor letting the government punish bankers who helped cause the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Almost seven out of 10 people surveyed support using current bank regulators for consumer protection, backing positions held by the financial industry and Republicans over President Barack Obama’s proposal to establish an independent agency. The poll’s findings come as the White House and congressional Democrats pivot to focus more election-year attention on an unpopular political target - banks and Wall Street - following this week’s victory on health-care legislation.

airport security guard ogled woman colleague in body scanner

airport security guard ogled woman colleague in body scannerfrom the sun: A Heathrow security man was quizzed by police after ogling a girl colleague "naked" in a new anti-terror body scanner. Jo Margetson, 29, reported John Laker, 25, after he took her picture with the X-ray gadget and made a lewd comment. The pervy guard leered and told her: "I love those gigantic tits." She had entered the X-ray machine by mistake - and was horrified when Laker pressed a button to take a revealing photo.

Laker, who faces the sack, was the first airport worker to be caught abusing the controversial new devices. They were brought in by the Government after the Christmas Day underpants bomber tried to blow up a flight to Detroit. They produce full-body "nude" images of passengers to locate hidden weapons or explosives. This includes clear outlines of genitalia. Opponents of the scanners, including anti-paedophile groups, have furiously condemned their use. After Laker sneaked a look at her body and made the remark, horrified Jo told her bosses and police at the West London airport.

france ditches carbon tax as social protests mount

france ditches carbon tax as social protests mountfrom telegraph: President Nicolas Sarkozy on Tuesday scrapped the country's proposed carbon tax and reshuffled his cabinet in populist tilt after suffering a crushing electoral defeat over the weekend, when his Gaulliste UMP party lost every region other than in its bastion of Alsace and the Indian Ocean island of Reunion.

The vote saw a resurrection of both the Socialist Party and the far-Right National Front, showing how the delayed effects of rising unemployment can change the political landscape long after recession has passed. The jobless rate has risen to 10.1pc, up from 8.7pc a year ago. A quarter of those aged under 25 are out of work.

The government said its energy tax was being postponed indefinitely in order not to "damage the competitiveness of French companies", fearing that it would be too risky for France to go it alone without the rest of the EU. Brussels has announced plans for an EU-wide tax, but the initiative already looks doomed.

Chantal Jouanno, the environment secretary, said she was "devastated that eco-scepticism had prevailed". France's leading green groups wrote a joint letter to Mr Sarkozy saying they were "scandalised" by his decision, accusing him of tearing up a pledge to put climate change at the centre of his presidency.

lawmakers eyeing national biometric id card

flashback: using immigration to push biometric id card
lawmakers eyeing national biometric id cardfrom threat level: Lawmakers are proposing a national identification card — what they’re calling “high-tech, fraud-proof Social Security cards” — that would be required for all employees in the United States.

The proposal by Sen. Charles Schumer (D-New York) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) comes as the states are grappling to produce another national identification card at the behest of the Department of Homeland Security. Virtually none of the states are in compliance with this Real ID program — adopted in 2005 — requiring state motor vehicle bureaus to obtain and internally scan and store personal information like Social Security cards and birth certificates for a national database.

Now comes a bid for a second card.

Homeland Security officials pointed to the Sept. 11 hijackers’ ability to get driver’s licenses in Virginia using false information as justification for the proposed $24 billion Real ID program. Schumer and Graham point to illegal immigration as cause for their plan.

We would require all U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who want jobs to obtain a high-tech, fraud-proof Social Security card. Each card’s unique biometric identifier would be stored only on the card; no government database would house everyone’s information,” they said. “The cards would not contain any private information, medical information or tracking devices. The card would be a high-tech version of the Social Security card that citizens already have.”

landmark legislation: both parties collude to bring US health scare

amid the hype, all i have to add is that if they wanted us to get health care, they could deliver it with the same shock & awe quickness that they deliver death & destruction around the world - at a fraction of the cost! - just like bill hick said... so here's one health scare to get you going & then related/updates after the video:

16,500 more irs agents needed to enforce obamacare
16,500 more irs agents needed to enforce obamacarefrom washington examiner: New tax mandates and penalties included in Obamacare will cause the greatest expansion of the Internal Revenue Service since World War II, according to a release from Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas:

"A new analysis by the Joint Economic Committee and the House Ways & Means Committee minority staff estimates up to 16,500 new IRS personnel will be needed to collect, examine and audit new tax information mandated on families and small businesses in the ‘reconciliation’ bill being taken up by the U.S. House of Representatives this weekend ... Scores of new federal mandates and fifteen different tax increases totaling $400 billion are imposed under the Democratic House bill. In addition to more complicated tax returns, families and small businesses will be forced to reveal further tax information to the IRS, provide proof of ‘government approved’ health care and submit detailed sales information to comply with new excise taxes."

Americans for Tax Reform has a good breakdown of the bill by the numbers. Isn't it reassuring that at a time of recession, government will do what's necessary to ensure its growth?

william bennett update: some still not charged in 2009 murders

william bennett update: some still not charged in 2009 murdersfrom myfoxdc: It was a vicious crime, a couple attacked and beaten in Northern Virginia, one year ago Monday [mar22]. The husband, a former green beret, died. A year later, the suspects in the crime have yet to go on trial and two haven't even been charged. William and Cynthia Bennett had gone out for their morning jog in their Lansdowne neighborhood. They were at Riverside Parkway near Rocky Creek Drive when they were attacked. Back at the one time crime scene today, a makeshift memorial is fading, except for a bouquet of fresh flowers. It's a fresh reminder one year later of the brutal attack that killed William Bennett and nearly killed his wife. At the time, Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney James Plowman said, "This was a particularly violent case. I've never seen anything like this before, and I hope I never do again."

afghan insurgents obtained US ied-blocking systems

afghan insurgents obtained US ied-blocking systemsfrom allgov: Warlocks, the jamming technology used by the U.S. military to thwart roadside bombs in Afghanistan, fell into the hands of the Taliban more than two years ago, according to an Army intelligence document obtained by WikiLeaks. The equipment may have been subsequently shipped to Iran where researchers tried to figure out how Warlocks works by using reverse engineering.

Warlocks is designed to scramble signals such as those sent from cell phones to detonate improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which have been a leading cause of death and injuries for American soldiers.

It is unknown whether the capture of the anti-IED system resulted in the Taliban overcoming the jamming technology. Steven Aftergood, director of the Project on Government Secrecy at the Federation of American Scientists, said it’s possible the Army developed a new system to replace the Warlocks that may have been compromised. “Nothing ever stands still. The Army is always upgrading, creating newer measures to deal with new threats,” Aftergood told NextGov.

ground zero: the black sun prophecy

ground zero: the black sun prophecyfrom clyde lewis: Recently Louis Farrakhan, leader of the nation of Islam delivered a speech that sounded like it was from a Hollywood blockbuster film about aliens and the end of the world. The speech included references to a mother ship or space plane about a half a mile long carrying 1500 smaller flying machines coming to earth. He also stated that in a vision Elijah Mohammed saw that in the future the arrival of the UFO would take place upon the discovery of a second star or companion to our sun. He mentions a blue star or darker star appearing next to a red fiery star. The ships are to gather near the sun and there will be stars falling from the heavens. It was all a part of some apocalyptic sermon that included the intervention of aliens and the idea of a second star or sun in the sky like the ending of the film “2010: The year we make contact.”

Around January 18th, 2010, NASA STEREO monitors were beginning to register what appeared to be large planet sized UFO’s around the sun. Giant, UFOs have appeared before around the Sun and have been monitored and recorded by NASA’s Stereo spacecraft. The present “giant solar UFO wave” which commenced on January 18, 2010 is the most recent of a reoccurring phenomenon. Later in the month of February came the solar filament at the southern hemisphere of the sun that snapped, sending to earth a large coronal mass ejection that was not reported in the mainstream.
