New York Nine Year Old Girl With Dravet Syndrome Dies Without Medical Marijuana

This is totally the responsibility of drug worriers gossip. At the end of the day all of the future predictions and hobgoblins that never pan out but keep the war going, result in dead kids. Murder that never gets people arrested, actually no less than government subsidized murder. Let it be known that this is the consequences of Sabet and Calvina. Time for Justice!

Mitch McConnell's Coal Job Lies

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/energy-environment/213172-mitch-mc...

"In this era of self-serving political myths, Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Republican minority leader, is perpetrating one of the most outrageous. Even in typically Republican Kentucky, McConnell is in danger of losing his Senate seat — for good reason.

Will GOP try "wicked witch's guards" tactic to reinvent itself as tipping point looms?

The fuse has been lit for a long time. The GOP knows that its policies, rhetoric, hypocrisy, and blatant lies are finally catching up to them. The tea party mania is waning, now reduced to mostly a fundraising tactic for dead-end campaigns that will lose in November despite millions in dark money.

The Right's Fear of Democracy

The right often warns of democratic, majority rule....fearing the majority may vote themselves a large largesse. It's brought up over and over on this Forum by those on the right.

What will it take to go green?
