$200 million into a "shovel ready" renovation of a federal building?

I live about a half mile from this building. It's smack between our major airport and the Mississippi River. They won't let the reporter get very far in the building even after the reporter had spent over a month getting permission to film inside the building.

The reporter is from our major fox affiliate and got shut down.

What the hell could cost 200 million bucks that we can't know about?

Gov. Jesse Ventura - Off the Grid: Blackwater: Just Another Government Scam?

Four former Blackwater Worldwide security guards were recently convicted in their roles for the 2007 massacre of 17 Iraqis in Baghdad. And to top it off, “we were paying an equivalent of $1 Million per Blackwater guard," the Governor points out. “Our military men and women are lucky to be making $30,000 to $40,000 a year. And you’re telling me our government paid $1 Billion for 1,000 Blackwater operators?”

Nature's Dying Migrant Workers

Story by Josephine Marcotty

SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY, CALIF. | First in an occasional series

On a cool January day in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Steve Ellis culled his sick bees. The only sounds were their steady buzz and the chuffing of the smoker he used to keep them calm as he opened the hives, one by one, to see how many had survived. The painful chore has become an annual ritual for Ellis, and, hardened now like a medic on the front lines, he crowned another box with a big rock to mark it.

“This one is G.A.D.,” he said. “Good as dead.”

EPA changes course on pesticide use on GMO crops

I am a beekeeper in SW Minnesota that has been completely wiped out by Clotianidin pesticides used on crop seed treatments.

The EPA has changed it's stance on these dangeous chemicals that kill all insects birds and wildlife. If we don't change we'll all be reaping this disaster for years to come, it may even be too late!

How would you describe "waking up" or being "awake"...

So there I was the other night, harvesting my first ever brew of kombucha, when I realized, "I haven't been this excited in years." I mean,I really had no business being that giddy. Later, it had me thinking about my life and the several stages I have been through, and wondered what the future would hold. I started feeling grateful because I was so happy I became "awake" early in life.

I got to thinking about what it ment to be awake and had a hard time figuring it out. Is it simply a perception "shift"? Is it diet related? Is it just a human trate that activates at adulthood?

Military choppers buzzed around my place last night in downtown Saint Paul - with no warning

Video here:

http://youtu.be/VhHr-xFmNdE

With no warning for residents, military helicopters flew low Monday evening over St. Paul and Minneapolis in a federal training exercise, about which officials released almost no information.

The exercise -- reportedly involving U.S. Navy Seals with Army pilots, engaging in rappelling exercises in an urban setting -- began just before 8 p.m. and was scheduled to last until midnight.
