New York Times Video: Ban Obama’s Bomb Trains: Pipelines on rails of an extremely volatile form of crude oil.
Washington cannot be relied upon to conduct itself in the best interests of 99% of the American People.
It is imperative that the People fight to take care of their own safety. When these trains go off they can - and have – completely decimated entire communities.
When I heard about Freddie Gray's injury and saw the pod cast I doubt his injury was in the van. My best guess would be that he was struck on the neck in an attempt to bring him down. At that time he sustained the spinal cord injury. If it was high enough it would affect his diaphragmatic muscles and give him the sensation of shortness of breath. (He thought he was having an asthma attack). He also appeared limp and even his neck seemed weak while being dragged to the police van so again a high cervical injury resulting in motor weakness or paralysis.
Nestle Corp caught illegally pumping water out of People’s S. California national forest for last 27 years.
And they wonder why the wild fires in the area have been so severe! Root systems don’t reach down far enough to get water!
This from CREDO:
This is unbelievable. An investigation by the Desert Sun newspaper has revealed that the Nestlé corporation has been illegally pumping water out of a Southern California national forest for its bottled water with a permit that expired 27 years ago.1
Edwin Black was the author of a book called "IBM and the Holocaust" which told about how IBM was doing business with Hitler, providing the NAZIs with IBM punch card tabulating machines that the NAZIs used to collect data on their citizens...especially the Jews. That data made it easy for the NAZIs to round up Jews, and others, for extermination in the NAZI death camps.
i like to respond to right wingers, who let loose with some anti-liberal rant, that people in red states are poorer, sicker, less well educated, and live shorter lives. they find it hard to deal with that.
if/when they question that, i add, "and angrier and full of hate." if they blow up at this, i cry out "the defense rests," as i leave.
fun: if you have to deal with these assholes, might as well have fun doing it.
somebody posted the intent not to vote in 2016, because the democratic process is a sham. that plan gives gop a free pass. the worse the dems get, the more we need to gang up on the sellouts and go-alongers and set things right.
non-voters and nader voters gave us gw bush. hillary is collapsing, opening way for a new candidate. that other poster has it exactly wrong!
i'm a dem who kept with hillary while idealists attacked her; better a semi-dem, i thought, than an unelectable ideal. i never liked her, or bill, much, what with the pardon of mark rich and the despicable "the era of big government is over."
now, hillary has set me free. she's such a clueless twit and conceptual litterer that i can finally look for a candidate more to my liking.

WASHINGTON -- Progressive Democrats have been hoping to see a showdown between Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton for years.
Instead, they're getting a public feud between the senator from Massachusetts and President Barack Obama.
Obama accused Warren and Congressional Democrats on Friday of being "dishonest," and spreading "misinformation" about the Trans-Pacific Partnership -- a trade pact the administration is negotiating among 12 nations.
