Prepping for Germageddon: Is the Right nuts? Or are the nuts right?

Two weeks ago, researcher, author, alternative medicine guru, nutrition ninja, body shaman and dear friend, Mo Lohaus printed a manifesto on FB called, "Germageddon" which dove deeply into the Ebola madness with crystalline detail, revelatory details and confrontational conclusions. To date, it's the best and most comprehensive piece I have read on what this current crisis means to us and how it has the potential to change the face of not just the United States, but the world. -Robert Phoenix

A Nation of Part-Time Workers, Thanks to Obamacare

J.D. Tuccille | Oct. 16, 2014
Reason

The Affordable Care Act not only makes hiring full-time workers more expensive for employers than part-timers, according to a new research paper, it also directly penalizes full-time workers. That will drive at least some people to—perversely—reduce their hours in order to increase their compensation. The end result for the country is likely to be the equivalent of 4 million fewer full-time-workers.

In "The Affordable Care Act and the New Economics of Part-Time Work," Casey B. Mulligan, professor of economics at the University of Chicago, writes, "Three major provisions of the ACA introduce incentives to change the workweek. The most obvious is the explicit penalty on assessable large employers that do not offer health insurance to their full-time employees." Employers are not required to offer benefits to part-time employees, creating an obvious incentive to reduce working hours and rely on part-time and contract employees instead of full-time workers.

Tennessee Woman Jailed 5 Days For Messy Yard

Ok, well maybe not good times for everybody. Karen Holloway of Lenoir, TN certainly didn’t have a good time when she was ordered by a judge to spend five days in jail. Her crime? Having a messy yard. Yup, that’s right, a messy yard.

WVLT of Knoxville has the full report:

Karen Holloway was cited by Lenoir City officials for not keeping up her yard.

She says this all started over the summer, when the city sent her a citation, claiming her yard wasn't properly maintained.

Oliver Stone's Full Moscow Interview On Russia and Ukraine

I found this very interesting and Stone makes some excellent points in this interview. I'm also curious how his drama about Edward Snowden is going to turn out.

"The iconic film maker totally nails it, understands Russia and Ukraine better than the whole US media combined.
Oliver Stone, one of America's most celebrated film makers, was in Moscow in September, working on his upcoming biopic of Edward Snowden and a new documentary about the Ukraine catastrophe".

Who Wants 30 Years of War With ISIS? Defense Contractors

"What was supposed to be the wind down of over a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan has suddenly morphed into a new war with ISIS. A war that according to former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta could last up to 30 years.

To most Americans, a new 30-year war would sound like bad news, but not to everyone. It is music to the ears of defense contractors who up until a few months ago were facing serious cuts. They are not looking at cuts anymore."

Why did Drudge drop this link so quickly?

A curious thing on Drudge today.

There was a prominent link to an interview with Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in which he spoke about Hilary Clinton's cosy little links to Eric Schmidt of Google fame.

But after just a few hours the link was mysteriously pulled. The conspiracy theorist in me suspects pressure was brought to bear.

But for we Paulites, the following gem was the best quote of all.

Son of Draconian Drug Warrior Fails Drug Test

Boss, I need a favor. Vice President Joe Biden has been one of the most strident drug warriors of my lifetime. Mandatory minimum sentences, the crack/powder disparity, federal asset forfeiture, the RAVE Act—they all have Biden's fingerprints on them. The man may be responsible for the very phrase "drug czar." If the Drug War had its own Mount Rushmore, Biden's face would be carved on it, right next to Richard Nixon and Bill Bennett.

Guess why his son got kicked out of the Navy Reserve?

Militarized Fish and Game SWAT Team raids 74 yr old woman

Carolyn Brewer was startled by the unannounced presence of an armed man in her bedroom. Her mood didn’t improve when the intruder sternly ordered her, “You don’t get up.” That directive was issued in the interest of “officer safety,” which presumably would have been undermined if the 74-year-old woman had somehow roused herself from her sickbed.

Editorial: License plate readers violate citizens' privacy and create potential for abuse

By Editorial Board | Syracuse.com

The police are spying on you.

As staff writer Marnie Eisenstadt reported, 19 police agencies in Central New York are tracking your movements through the use of license plate readers mounted on the trunks of patrol cars. Plate numbers are immediately compared against a database of unregistered and stolen cars and owners with warrants out for their arrest. A "hit'' from a license plate reader even stopped a kidnapping in progress, says the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office.

What's wrong with that? Nothing, if it ends there.

But it doesn't end there. It's up to each police department, from tiny Jordan to Onondaga County, to decide how long to keep the data and how to use it. Privacy advocates are rightly worried that millions of records kept on innocent people may be stored indefinitely and used against them at some point in the future.

Even though the technology is not new, New York has no laws governing the use of plate readers and what is done with the data they collect. Legislators and Gov. Andrew Cuomo need to remedy that.

In America, fear is growing that the police are getting out of control

Barely a week goes past without a terrible incident, and too often the police officer is white and the other people involved are black.

BY DAVID MILLWARD | 15 OCTOBER, 2014
The New Statesman

It should have been a routine traffic stop.

A motorist, who was not wearing her seatbelt, was pulled over. In less than 15 minutes the encounter ended with a police officer smashing an axe through the car window and using a Taser on the front seat passenger.

The incident would have gone unnoticed but for the fact that one of the woman’s two children in the back filmed the incident on his mobile phone.

This was just one of a series of confrontations between black Americans and white officers in recent months in which the police seem all too ready to respond with disproportionate force.

Unease about the police is not restricted to the liberal left.

"Exit Portals". Just when I thought the airport security couldn't get any worse...

So now they have these one-way "airlocks" that you need to go through to exit the airports. What a great way to "detain" a suspicious individual. Just let them enter the portal and then don't let the exit door open. The fat goons don't have to run to catch you that way...

FEMA Conducting Pandemic Drills in Region 2-New York Amidst Ebola Crisis

Activist Post

In yet another curious coincidence surrounding the recent Ebola crisis, it appears that FEMA has been preparing for the appearance of a pandemic of deadly disease in the near future all along.
