Former Gov. Gary Johnson of New Mexico, who was the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee in 2012, is looking ahead to 2016, calling for more inclusion for third party candidates in presidential campaigns, including being included in the debates.
If much of the economic commentary in the mainstream media is to be believed, the rising inequality of wealth in Anglo societies and the crashing of our economy by the big banks and financial class make the problems of capitalism not just evident but self-evident.
Such claims are made, of course, against a background of hundreds of years of capitalist growth that has, for the overwhelming bulk of our population, made affordable the books that these claimants have presumably read, the computers on which they type, the Internet on which they do their research, the air-conditioning or central heating in the room where they do it, and even the food in their bellies – food of a variety and quality unparalleled in history.
But this background of utter success is taken so much for granted that it is almost entirely invisible.
The Supreme Court states:
The United States never held any municipal sovereignty, jurisdiction, or right of soil in and to the territory of which Alabama, or any of the new States, were formed, except for temporary purposes, and to execute the trusts created by the acts of the Virginia and Georgia legislatures, and the deeds of cession executed by them to the United States, and the trust created by the treaty of the 30th April, 1803, with the French Republic ceding Louisiana.
Justice Scalia joined his more liberal colleagues, Associate Justices Elena Kagan, Sandra Sotomayor and Stephen Breyer — in vehement dissent, arguing that a search based solely on an anonymous tip is a blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.
The D.C. Board of Elections gave a green light Wednesday for campaigners to begin collecting signatures to put a marijuana legalization initiative on November ballots.
“I just want to thank board members,” D.C. Cannabis Campaign organizer Adam Eidinger said during a well-attended meeting packed with supporters. “I am very thankful we are making it to this day.”
About two dozen eager canvassers promptly fanned out across the city with petition forms.
The legalization campaign must turn in approximately 22,373 valid signatures by July 7 to score a spot on the November ballot, said Karen Brooks, D.C's voter registrar, citing current registration statistics. More than 5 percent of registered voters in five of the eight city wards must sign the petition.

Please read and share. I remain amazed that our leaders are never called out for such a stupid foreign policy. Its truly 1984, as Al Qaeda is now our ally in Libya and Syria. Why are those like Glenn Beck and other neo-con leaders so focused on Benghazi when they should really focus on the underlying absurdity of the actions they supported, taken by NATO against the Gaddafi regime that led to this crime in Benghazi? Edit: Of course, I agree with some of the comments below that element of Al Qaeda have always been supported by the West. But my hope is that people who aren't ready for that truth will at least see the absurdity of this unreported about face in foreign policy.

"The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn't been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier.
As far as I know, TMOT doesn't have a bumper sticker. So, with the campaign's permission, I made my own based on his yard sign. I'm hosting it here:
Please, if you live in Georgia, download it, print it, and stick it in the window of your car. While you drive around Georgia let everyone know you support TMOT!
Fail: NYPD Photo Contest on Twitter Triggers Huge Backlash
A seemingly innocuous call to action by the New York City Police Department backfired in extraordinary fashion Tuesday.
In a tweet, the NYPD asked Twitter users to share pictures of them posing with a police officer with the hashtag "myNYPD." The original tweet may give a sense of what the NYPD wanted:
VIDEO: MSNBC Attacks Alex Jones, Rand Paul, Drudge, WeAreChange
In a 15 minute-long ideological crusade, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes smeared Cliven Bundy supporters as ‘insurgents’ while lamenting the threat posed to the establishment by an Alex Jones-Drudge-Fox News-Rand Paul “axis” that threatens to rock the 2016 presidential race.
During New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's "Ask the Governor" program on New Jersey radio station 101.5 FM, he was asked by a caller whether the governor would consider legalizing marijuana to bring in more tax revenue into the state.
"Mike, I love you baby, but it ain't happening, not while I'm governor," Christie said to the caller.
Christie said that he understood the argument for more revenue, but said that it was wasn't an "even exchange."
Ruth Hunter lives two doors down from a man that police were after. So naturally her apartment was raided in the middle of the night and she was hog tied while police sorted things out.
I rarely write rebuttals to articles, but sometimes an article is written that is odious and ignorant enough to warrant a counter-article in order to clear the air of the pollution that these mole-sighted “journalists” vomit into our collective consciousness.
The article of note in this case is an editorial by conservative hack Michael Goodwin who is currently poisoning minds at the NY Post. Michael wrote an article on April 20th titled, ”The Pulitzers Reward Traitors and Treason.” I will utilize excerpts of that article in my rebuttal, the full text of which can be found here. http://nypost.com/2014/04/20/pulitzer-board-okays-journalist...
Goodwin begins with a typical broad, foolish statement:
like these articles. I send them to all my liberal environmentalist buddies.
President Barack Obama is marking the 44th Earth Day with a carbon-emitting extravaganza, spending more than 15 hours on Air Force One and 15 minutes aboard the Marine One helicopter.
Not including his motorcades in Oso, Washington, the site of a recent devastating mudslide, his trip will consume an estimated 35,565 gallons of fuel.
