Volkswagen’s New 300 MPG Car Not Allowed In America Because It Is Too Efficient

You won’t find the 300 MPG Volkswagen XL1 in an American showroom, in fact it has even been denied a tour of America because it is too efficient for the American public to be made widely aware of, and oil profits are too high in America with the status quo in place. No tour has been allowed for this car because the myth that 50 mpg is virtually impossible to obtain from even a stripped down econobox is too profitable to let go of, and when it comes to corporate oil profits, ignorance is bliss.

DP Poll: Should Doctor Assisted Suicide Be Legal?

A question inspired by this story about a 29 year old woman who has terminal brain cancer, and has scheduled her death for November 1.

Cancer patient Brittany Maynard, scheduled to die Saturday, checked last item on ‘bucket list’
By Lindsey Bever | October 29, 2014

Last week, Brittany Maynard stood atop the Grand Canyon, dressed in a banana-yellow shirt, hot-pink sweater and a quiet smile. She posed in snapshots with her family — documenting the last adventure on her “bucket list.”

Maynard, 29, was diagnosed in April with a stage 4 malignant brain tumor and given six months to live. She also learned how she could suffer in the end, losing her ability to speak and use her own body. So, earlier this month, she made plans to die on her own terms.

“I don’t want to die,” Maynard told CBS “This Morning.” But she said she’s now suffering from “bone-splitting” headaches, seizures and “moments when I’m looking at my husband’s face and I can’t think of his name.”

Hardened Hearts Could Destroy Us All

Hardened Hearts a Could Destroy Us All

Where is Miriam's Hattie Carroll song?
Where are the marchers, where is the throng?
Where are the singers exposing what's wrong?
Where are those who won't go along?

Hardened hearts, hardened hearts, hardened hearts,
Is the cause of our fall,
Hardened hearts, hardened hearts, hardened hearts,
Could destroy us all.

In the Sixties they protested one brutal war,
Now we're silent facing ten times more,
Doing nothing about the death and gore,
As long as we don't have to go to a distant shore.

Obama audience walks out again - this time in Milwaukee

For the second time in as many weeks, persons have walked out during a campaign speech given by President Barack Obama. Last week, it happened as the president spoke in Maryland – and this week, it happened in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, according to a WND report on Tuesday. It was apparent that the president was still delivering his speech as people were marching out of the venue where he was campaigning for Mary Burke, the Democratic Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate who is trying to take incumbent Gov. Scott Walker’s job away from him in the midterm election next week.

Sheriff Commits to not Participating in "No Refusal" Checkpoints

http://www.daytondailynews.com/news/news/sheriffs-office-won...

Gene Kelly has been the Clark County Sheriff since forever and has a lot of respect locally. It's common to say, "I vote a straight Republican ticket, except for Gene Kelly, of course."

That's why I was surprised the county was participating in this "no refusal" checkpoint. Well, it turns out Gene Kelly is having nothing to do with it anymore.

La Quinta, CA – A powerful video was submitted to the Free Thought Project which shows a dramatic interaction between a man and La Quinta police.

Alejandro Natividad, a resident of Indio pulled out his phone and caught his incredible non-violent resistance on video Sunday as police were pointing guns at him.

Natividad, had committed no crime, yet when police chose to interact with him, guns were drawn and he was told to get face down on the concrete.

WOW! Greenspan just called QE a failure and to buy gold..

"He said the bond-buying program was ultimately a mixed bag. He said that the purchases of Treasury and mortgage-backed securities did help lift asset prices and lower borrowing costs. But it didn’t do much for the real economy."

"He also said, “I don’t think it’s possible” for the Fed to end its easy-money policies in a trouble-free manner."

"Mr. Greenspan said gold is a good place to put money these days given its value as a currency outside of the policies conducted by governments."

Remember, those things listed are at a HUGE discount price. Those $499 5.56 rifles are most likely auto M4's, and those $79000 "utility vehicles" are most likely armored vehicles.
