Legalizing Marijuana One Joint At A Time


I sincerely believe that more than 7% will forward this.

A voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea and only two of the men on it were able to swim to a small, desert like island. The two survivors, not knowing what else to do, agree that they had no other recourse but to pray to God. However, to find out whose prayer was more powerful, they agreed to divide the territory between them and stay on opposite sides of the island.

The first thing the first man prayed for was food. The next morning, the first man saw a fruit-bearing tree on his side of the land, and he was able to eat its fruit. The other man's parcel of land remained barren.
After a week, the first man was lonely and he decided to pray for a wife... The next day, another ship was wrecked, and the only survivor was a woman who swam to his side of the land. On the other side of the island, there was nothing.

Soon the first man prayed for a house, clothes, more food. The next day, like magic, all of these were given to him. However, the second man still had nothing.

Finally, the first man prayed for a ship, so that his wife and he could leave the island. In the morning, he found a ship docked at his side of the island. The first man boarded the ship with his wife and decided to leave the second man on the island. He considered the other man unworthy to receive God's blessings, since none of his prayers had been answered.

As the ship was about to leave, the first man heard a voice from Heaven booming,
'Why are you leaving your companion on the island?'

'My blessings are mine alone, since I was the one who prayed for them,' the first man answered.
'His prayers were all unanswered, and so he does not deserve anything'

'You are mistaken!' the voice rebuked him. 'He had only one prayer, which I answered. If not for that, you would not have received any of my blessings..'

'Tell me,' the first man asked the voice, 'what did he pray for that I should owe him anything?'

'He prayed that all your prayers be answered..'

For all we know, our blessings are not the fruits of our prayers alone, but those of another praying for us.

When Jesus died on the cross he was thinking of you!

If you are one of the 7% who will stand up for him forward this with the title 'I am one of the 7%'.

93% of people won't forward this.

"Our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press" --Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, 1786.

"No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions." --Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1804.

"The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure." --Thomas Jefferson to Lafayette

"The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them." --Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1787.

"Our citizens may be deceived for awhile, and have been deceived; but as long as the presses can be protected, we may trust to them for light." --Thomas Jefferson to Archibald Stuart. 1799.

Condemning Torture, Condoning Mass Murder

By Charles Davis

The idea that war crimes and civil liberties violations are strictly conservative affairs is particularly comforting to wide-eyed Democrats in awe of America's First Black President ™, and it affords the heirs to the same liberal establishment which brought us Vietnam and Hiroshima another opportunity to grandstand about their commitment to human rights even as the noble humanitarian Barack Obama continues to extra-judicially murder foreigners with unmanned drones.


The Disease of Permanent War

By Chris Hedges

The hollowness of our liberal classes, such as the Democrats, empowers the moral nihilists. A state of permanent war means the inevitable death of liberalism. Dick Cheney may be palpably evil while Obama is merely weak, but to those who seek to keep us in a state of permanent war it does not matter. They get what they want.


Obama's Animal Farm

By James Petras

The Democratic Pigs are now pursuing the same brutal, military policies of their predecessors, the Republican Porkers, only now it is in the name of the people and peace. Orwell might paraphrase the policy of President Barack Obama, as 'Bigger and bloodier wars equal peace and justice'.


Buyers Remorse

Is It Too Late To Swap Obama For McCain?

By Mike Whitney

I don't know about you, but I believe that America is based on the idea that every man has certain basic rights, and the most fundamental of all those rights is the right to know why the state has thrown your ass in jail. That's numero uno! It's called habeas corpus and the whole judicial system rests on that one foundation stone. People like Obama, who don't believe in habeas, shouldn't even call themselves "American" in my book because they don't believe in the underlying principles.


Obama Must Cow Netanyahu

Obama-Netanyahu must not be Kennedy-Khrushchev

By Juan Cole

If Netanyahu comes away thinking he can thumb his nose at Washington, the whole Middle East could be in flames by the end of Obama's first term.


One State the Alternative to Two-State Solution

By Hani Hazaimeh with agency dispatches

"If Israel continues not to accept solving the Palestinian issue on the basis of a two-state solution, then the other option before us is one democratic state in which Muslims, Christians and Jews live side by side enjoying the same rights," Arab League Secretary General Amr Musa said on Sunday.


The Almighty Renminbi?

By Nouriel Roubini

Traditionally, empires that hold the global reserve currency are also net foreign creditors and net lenders. The British Empire declined - and the pound lost its status as the main global reserve currency - when Britain became a net debtor and a net borrower in World War II. Today, the United States is in a similar position.


US Chiefs Can't be Sued for 'Terror Torture'

By Robert Barnes

The court ruled 5 to 4 that the top officials are not liable for the actions of their subordinates absent evidence that they ordered the allegedly discriminatory activity. The decision followed the court's ideological split between conservatives and liberals, with Justice Anthony M. Kennedy siding with the conservatives and writing the opinion.


Health Care's Enigma in Chief

By David Sirota

The most stunning and least reported news about President Obama's press conference with health industry executives this week wasn't those executives' willingness to negotiate with a Democrat. It was that Democrat's eagerness to involve those executives in a discussion about health care reform even as they revealed their previous plans to pilfer $2 trillion from Americans.


U.S. Health Care Lies About Canada

Greed, U.S. Politics, Dysfunction

By Diane Francis

I am an American who has lived in Canada for more than 35 years. I can vouch that the system is more than adequate and is not run by civil servants but by doctors who are able to treat everyone, rich or poor.

A Speech Before the Citizens Against Legal Loopholes RallyA Speech Before the Citizens Against Legal Loopholes Rally

In fact,
today's live viral vaccines, including the oral polio vaccine required by law be given to
our children, are still litered with simian (monkey) virus contaminants since they are
developed in monkey kidney cells, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration turns a
blind eye to as many as 100 live monkey virus contaminants per vaccine dose, and is
barred from telling health professionals and even health scientists this truth because of
pharmaceutical industry dictated proprietary laws and nondisclosure
agreements. In the
end, the research question I asked, "Did these viruses, AIDS and Ebola, evolve naturally,
were they accidentally produced, or were they intentionally created and deployed?" I
conclude, unquestionably, they are not natural. I leave you the reader, and concerned
citizens of America and the world, to decide whether it was a horrible accident or
treacherous covert population control experiment.
I ask all of you to consider the pain
and cost of the current and coming plagues,including the escalating rates of viruslinked
cancers like prostate and breast cancer, certain leukemia’s and lymphomas and other
vaccine contaminant related illnesses including hyperactivity disorders in children and
escalating sudden infant death rates. I believe you will realize that the pain and cost of
denial and indifference to this horrible reality is far greater than the toll your political
action might cost.

ABOUT 30 mg per liter of fluoride was accidentally added to Brisbane, Australia drinking water

ABOUT 30 mg per liter of fluoride was accidentally added to Brisbane, Australia drinking water suppl

Dear P4SDW

Test results released this week showed that between 30 and 31 milligrams per litre of the unapproved, unregulated chemical called "fluoride" was released into Brisbane, Australia drinking water on May 1, 2009. The public was told May 14, 2009.,20797,25480817-5003402,00.html?from=public_rss

Current recommended fluoride concentrations in drinking water are 0.7ppm in Canada. The fluoride concentrations released into Brisbane, Australia drinking water was more than 40 times this "recommended" fluoride concentration.

The National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities ( states that “fluoride and its salts” are considered a drug:

Schedule I drug at doses greater than 1 mg requires a prescription.

Schedule III drug at doses at or less than 1 mg per dose can only be bought at pharmacies.

“The Food and Drug Administration Office of Prescription Drug Compliance has confirmed, to my surprise, that there are no studies to demonstrate either the safety or effectiveness of these drugs which FDA classifies as unapproved new drugs.” SOURCE: Letter from Dr. David Kessler, M.D., Commissioner, United States Food and Drug Administration, June 3, 1993 to Congressman Kenneth Calvert, Chairman, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, Committee on Science, Washington, D.C.

“Fluoride, when used in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease in man or animal, is a drug that is subject to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation.” SOURCE: United States Food and Drug Administration letter Dec, 2000, to Congressman Kenneth Calvert, Chairman, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, Committee on Science, Washington, D.C.

Imposing unregulated chemicals used as a medication to entire populations, without a prescription, and without "informed consent" is simply unacceptable. In other words, municipalities are acting administering these unregulated drugs, without informing the citizens regarding risks and benefits, and without obtaining the consent of the citizens who must ingest these unregulated drugs.

Winnipeg's fortress of deadly disease

Last Updated: Wednesday, May 13, 2009 | 4:13 PM ET Comments8Recommend18

From the outside, the Canadian Science Centre for Human and Animal Health on Arlington Street in Winnipeg's north end looks like any other fairly new government building. Big with lots of glass and concrete.

This 2006 photo released by the Public Health Agency of Canada shows a scientist, Dr. Adrienne Meyers, putting waste into a double-door autoclave to sterilize it with heat and pressure before the material leaves the Containment Level 4 laboratory of the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg. This 2006 photo released by the Public Health Agency of Canada shows a scientist, Dr. Adrienne Meyers, putting waste into a double-door autoclave to sterilize it with heat and pressure before the material leaves the Containment Level 4 laboratory of the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg. (Public Health Agency of Canada)But there's something special inside. The building houses the National Microbiology Laboratory — one of only 15 Level 4 facilities in the world. The lab was built to accommodate the most basic to the most deadly infectious organisms — from run-of-the-mill flu viruses to killers like Ebola and Marburg.

The lab - administered by Health Canada — cost $172 million and took 10 years to design and build. It took two years alone to build the concrete box that encloses the Level-4 lab, which occupies a small part of the entire centre.

They waited a year for the massive, monolithic concrete to dry, then covered it with 30 coats of special paint, and then covered the walls and floor with a layer of epoxy 7.5 centimetres thick.

Inside, people work in those space-age suits that protect them from the viruses they're handling.

The facility is pretty secure.

The primary objective of this project is to develop both diagnostic and protective recombinant monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) with specificity against target molecules from numerous microbial bioterrorism (BT) agents. The mAbs will comprise a set of tools to address three critical aspects of BT threats: rapid detection of specific microbial agents, prophylaxis, and post-exposure treatment of infected individuals. A further objective of the project is to generate information that will aid in the rational design of vaccine candidates for numerous microbial pathogens. A summary of studies conducted on one bacterial BT agent, Bacillus anthracis , is presented here.

Much of the impetus for the Winnipeg lab — known locally as "the virology lab" — comes from a surge of new diseases in the 1980s, when two new strains of Ebola were discovered, and when the medical community took serious notice of HIV-AIDS.

Shortly after clusters of people starting coming down with flu symptoms in Mexico in March 2009, health officials sent samples to the Winnipeg lab. On April 24, Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq told reporters that the lab confirmed that a never-before-seen swine flu virus was responsible for the outbreak in Mexico.

The first strains of lethal diseases arrived at the Winnipeg lab in the summer of 2000, a cargo of six of the most deadly viruses in the world. Small vials contained samples of Lassa fever, Marburg and Junin virus, with three strains of the Ebola virus, all flown in from the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.

Security concerns

But, if security requirements are so stringent, and the stuff so deadly, how is it so easily transported over great distances to the lab in Winnipeg? Dr. Ron St. John, the former executive director of Health Canada's Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Response, says the vials are transported in safety packs, then secured in a triple-container and sealed.

"I would stress that these packages are designed to withstand tremendous impact," Dr. St. John explained. "In the famous Lockerbie crash the only package — the only thing to survive intact in that terrible airplane tragedy — was a safety pack that had an organism in it."

On May 5, 2009, a former researcher at the lab was arrested at a border crossing in North Dakota. He was on his way to his new job at a research lab in Bethesda, Md. Border guards found 22 vials of biological material that he said he had taken from the Winnipeg lab.

The 42-year-old researcher — Konan Michel Yao — said he had been hired by the Public Health Agency of Canada to work as a PhD fellow at the Winnipeg facility. He told officers he was working on a vaccine for the Ebola virus and HIV. The vials didn't contain virus samples, but did contain material he was using in his research into Ebola and HIV.

Yao said he was taking the vials to his new job because he didn't want to start his research from scratch. The Public Health Agency of Canada said there was never a risk to the public. Yao didn't have access to the highest-level pathogens and only worked with non-infectious material.

Not in my backyard

It is no cinch to build a Level-4 lab, and not just for design and construction challenges. A major problem is to get someone finally to sign off on the labs, which means to authorize them and guarantee that they are safe enough for the deadliest diseases in the world.

In 1976, a woman became ill at Pearson International Airport in Toronto and was taken to nearby Etobicoke General Hospital where it was determined that she had contracted Lassa fever. This was enough of a scare to have the hospital shut down for a week.

The Ontario government responded by spending $5.8 million to build a Level-4 lab in Etobicoke. But neighbours complained, the new facility was never opened, and the Ontario government decided these types of facilities are a federal responsibility.

Another high-security lab was built at Toronto General Hospital, on the 11th floor of the Norman Urquhart Wing. It was sealed off from the rest of the hospital, with its own air supply and electrical system, with a special state-of-the-art particulate filtering system. A special team was trained to work in the isolation unit, intended to handle viruses as lethal as Lassa and Ebola. It was completed in 1984, at a cost of $2 million.

But it never opened.

Vickery Stoughton, then president of Toronto General Hospital, blamed that on what he called "bureaucratic ass-covering." Stoughton said government inspectors made frequent checks of the new facility, but not one was willing to sign off on the guaranteed safety of a lab dealing with the deadliest diseases in the world.

"Instead, they'd recommend that another $100,000 or $200,000 be spent to make absolutely sure it's safe," Stoughton said.

Major Actions Are Needed

Today at 10:25am
12/5/09 Opinion

It will take far more money than Stephen Harper is providing to get the hundreds of thousands who have lost their jobs back to work. Money is needed for more nurses, teachers, doctors, engineers, construction workers, business managers, researchers, office personnel, factory workers and others. Hiring these people, or providing a stipend so that they can take the training they need, immediately puts the money they receive in circulation in the community. Businesses will sell their services or products and hire others.

In addition to hiring personnel, money is needed for affordable housing, schools, colleges, infrastructure, roads, bridges, equipment and support to help new businesses get started to replace those which have closed down.
Where is all this money to come from? The government is already forecasting a deficit of $63-B to be added to the existing debt of about $500-B. Many are concerned about the huge debt being passed on to future generations, and the government has used the debt and interest as an excuse for not doing more. Interest on public debt in Canada already amounts to $2000 for every man, woman and child, or $10,000 a year for a family of five.

As things stand, the money will be borrowed from the private sector. If that is not changed we won’t have enough money to do what needs to be done and we will spend more of our income on public debt interest. More importantly, it adds to the control that lenders have over government decisions. As we all know, he who pays the piper calls the tune.
The government has its own bank, the Bank of Canada where it can borrow effectively interest free. Not only would this lower taxes for Canadians and Canadian business, it would also reduce the control of lenders and make it possible to do what needs to be done to get people back to work.

Only with massive investment will the goals outlined by Ken Georgetti and the CLC be achieved, but this won't happen if the government does not borrow from its own Bank to finance this investment. This means significantly increasing the share of government debt held by the Bank of Canada and reducing the share held by the private sector. No government is going to go down this road without a very angry and well informed electorate pushing them to do it – whether it be Conservative, Liberal or NDP. That is why the CLC initiative to hold meetings all across the country is so important.
The message is very simple. Borrow from our own bank, not the commercial banks.
