Bureau 121: The Sony Hack Fallout

This really wasn't the article I was planning on writing. Actually, I thinking about a summary of the year's major events---more than ample material there! As some of you may know, I'm a big movie buff, especially when it comes to Mel Brooks or those great movies from the 30's and 40's. In fact, Americans in general love their movies. We've had a love affair with Hollywood since the days of Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, and Tom Mix, which brings me to the subject of this article.

Spritual Rape of Mary ... Thom, did you really want to go there?

I've listened to Thom for several years and he's very interesting and informative about economics and some other social issues.

But he's way below or out of his league when it comes to talking about the Immaculate Conception of Mary and alleging that God "raped" Mary spiritually speaking.

DIY marijuana

I know of this guy who grows his own and he can order seeds from UK at with his mastercard. He knows to order autoflower feminised seeds because these are the ones that grow female plants and they produce the good stuff. Not the leaves but the buds. Autoflower means they are a cross between the ruderalis strain which only lives about 4 months max., then die, and regular pot which may grow practically forever if it doesn't get polinated, then it makes seeds and dies.

Judge won't release former Alabama Governor Siegelman on appeal bond

By Kim Chandler, Associated Press (AP) Thursday, December 18, 2014 MONTGOMERY, AL....

...A federal judge on Thursday refused to free former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman from prison while he continues to appeal his 2006 bribery conviction.

Siegelman has raised significant issues, but the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is unlikely to grant Siegelman a new trial since the court has already rejected similar arguments from his co-defendant, Richard Scrushy, U.S. District Judge Clay Land of Georgia said in his 31-page order

CBD - Nature's Gift to Humanity

Tom's topic today was all about CBD and the benefits of cannabinoids. Great topic, Thom! When I first started learning about the positive effects of CBD about 1-1/2 years ago I decided to do something with my new-found knowledge. I started a website called to help educate and share the news and good fortune about cannabinoids.

Single Payer gets the DEEP SIX in VT

I remember when I said that single payer health coverage would not work in VT. I was derided and impugned, on another liberal website, for not knowing a thing about how single payer was the answer to our healthcare situation. I can now proudly say I have been vindicated.

This is for you AIW.

Are We At "Peak" Citizen's United?

Thom plus logo Donald Trump has corrupted pretty much every federal agency, but the one that is most concerning is his corruption of the Department of Justice. Bill Barr, in 1992, ran the cover up of the Iran/Contra treason scandal on behalf of George HW Bush and Ronald Reagan. Now he's running, according to Lev Parnas, multiple coverups for Donald Trump.
