"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Almost 10 years ago to the day I proposed this idea to the John Kerry forum... and I still think it has potential as not only a wedge issue, but one that can help preserve land in the more crowded eastern part of the nation.
Yours? Betcha it aint.

Fox News Poll: 49 percent think White House had IRS target conservatives
Fox spends months repeating this to its listeners then does a poll of the listeners to see how effective they were at brainwashing them. Actually 49% of Fox listeners seems low.
But many venoms have intriguing physiological effects, so King and his colleagues have spent hours milking the venom of Chinese red-headed centipedes, and analyzing the hundreds of compounds in the substance to look for promising drug candidates.
"They're nasty little buggers to try to milk because they're so wiggly," King told LiveScience. "If you don't hold them down right, they can just turn around and bite you."

A broad coalition of Christian leaders have taken the occasion of the holiest day on the Christian calendar to release a statement calling for the end of the war on drugs and mass incarceration.
“The cross that faith leaders are imploring others to take up is this unjust, and immoral war on drugs and mass incarceration of the poor. In particular, poor black and brown young adults whose futures are being ruined at the most critical point in their lives,” said Reverend John E. Jackson of the Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference.
In a previous thread I asked if the GOP strategy of Starve The Beast... the willful sabotaging of the fiscal health of government, was a form of treason. After all... if foreign enemies had done as much damage to the US as the GOP has... and let's throw in neolibs as well, would we not declare war?

With all the handwringing about the 2014 Election and how important Democratic turnout will be, etc., the recent SCOTUS decisions have really taken things out of our -- ie, the People's -- hands.
