Chain of Command

The pentagon just slapped the wrists of two offenders charged within the ranks, tried within the ranks, by colleagues within the ranks, and that preserves the chain of command. That's bs, the chain of command would not be broken if cases were tried outside of the military. The chain would never be broken if the crimes didn't occur. When real justice is administered, sexual assault might come with a risk too severe to continue to pursue such behaviour. When no sexual assault occurs, no chain of command is broken. Kirsten Gilibrand's bill should pass.

The University of Arizona now has federal permission to study medical cannabis.
Since the beginning of Arizona's medical marijuana program, people have petitioned the state health department to add post-traumatic stress disorder as a qualifying condition for medical pot.

County settles with mother who lost newborn after erroneous drug test

Quote:
An ill-timed pasta salad meal just before labor resulted in a Pennsylvania woman losing her newborn for 75 of the first 78 days of the child’s life. Eileen Ann Bower failed a routine post-delivery drug test because of the poppy seeds in her salad.

Gun Blasphemy

In the gun religion uttering the words "Gun Violence" is basphemous, and punishment is swift. Surgeon General nominee Murthy escaped an Issa hearing not on confirmation but Sentencing.

GOPick pocket

Distraction is always employed by thieves. A Pickpocket uses the sense of touch to dilute the feeling of his hand taking your wallet. -dean-baker-money-in-hyping-the-generational-war-story is the gop/riches distracting play, and emotion is sometimes employed. It's a scam, and it's been being rolled out for awhile for a long game. David Gregory says without flinching "We are going to have cut entitlements".
