College students today have been afforded a choice, pay thousands of dollars for text books, or find the same text books available for illegal download on the internet for a fraction of the price. With the financial burden that is experienced by so many college students, it should not be the least bit surprising that students have been picking the latter choice more frequently.
Let’s say you have the desire and the wherewithal to open a new auto dealership, or a grocery store, appliance repair shop, or a clothing boutique — or any other business. Would you think it fair if, before you could open your store, you had to get permission from a government bureaucracy, in the form of a “certificate of need”?
Alleged ISIS Photo Controversy Engulfs Sen. John McCain
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and his aides swear the Syrian "rebels" he was pictured last year with weren’t ISIS members or supporters, and the mainstream media is by and large buying the 2008 GOP presidential nominee’s story.
But a closer look at the situation tells perhaps a different story than McCain’s office or the mainstream media have pushed.

"Believe it or not, the federal government sends free pre-rolled cannabis cigarettes to a special, but dwindling group of patients on a regular basis beginning in 1976 with Robert Randall. It all started when Robert was arrested for growing cannabis on his back deck and had to prove that this medicine was essential in to prevent his progressive loss of vision from glaucoma."
Key phrase here: "PREVENT his loss of vision."
"A variety of options are available to treat glaucoma. These include eye drops, laser procedures, and surgery. All are intended to decrease eye pressure and, thereby, protect the optic nerve."
Key phrase here: "DECREASE eye pressure..."
which DOES NOT PROTECT THE OPTIC NERVE. It merely SLOWS the progressive loss of vision. It provides an awesome income stream for the drug company and the eye doctor, as visual field testing will be performed several times a year at about $100 per test - to map the gradual loss of vision. Meanwhile, the patient will buy those drops until they die.
I devoted a career to ophthalmology, and watched helplessly as doctor after doctor prescribed drops and did surgery and patients continued to lose vision. My own father had lost a considerable portion of his visual field before he died. It is beyond frustrating to know there is a way to save the sight of these people, and the government knows it, and every ophthalmologist I worked for knows it...
Very interesting article from ZH:
Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market blog,
I wanted to thank everyone who downloaded and shared 28 pages the #FREE excerpt from the first book in the SECURITY THROUGH ABSURDITY series, Little Yellow Stickies.
About 2,000 people on Sept 11, of this year, read my account of how 9/11 went down inside the defense contractor's office I used to work at.
It is currently not free, but it will be again very, very soon. (like hopefully tomorrow.) I intend for it to stay free. Always.
I will be reading this exact thing at Brown University Bookstore, on September 30th. http://www.brown.edu/campus-life/support/bookstore/events
Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky called the plan “ludicrous” on the Senate floor before the vote.
“No one knows where these arms are going to wind up … We don’t even know who these groups are.”
Paul — known for his non-interventionist approach — said “we need to stay the heck out of their civil war … It is their war and they need to fight it.”
Meanwhile this speech got a standing ovation from special joint session of Congress today for the Kiev coup puppets, 'Porky and the Oligarchs'.

Missing Money: Uncle Sam’s Accounting is Suspect
He had his green flight suit on and when he got close to me, I leaned toward his ear and said...hey man...just so you know, none of us want you guys to go off to fight yet another war for the bankers.
He smiled and said "Thank You!"
I didn't expect him to say that so it caught me a little off guard and so I replied..."so you know that all these damn wars are for the international bankers?" He smiled at me again and said..."Oh yeah, we know...BELEIVE ME...We Know!"
It was my time to head off to the teller so I just said something like...that's great or that's excellent...and walked away.
When I got back to my car I was telling my wife about the conversation I just had with the young fighter pilot. She said, I bet he loved your shirt...I had completely forgotten that I had on one of my Ron Paul Revolution T-Shirts.
Regardless, it made my day!
