$$$ Wasting Money $$$

Money in politics is a sore subject. We desperately need campaign finance reform.
The Supreme Court has proven how this body is anything but "Supreme" and exacerbated an already polluted political process with the Citizens United ruling. Opening the doors for more "dark money" from corporations, secret donors and super pacs that will enable the purchase of power & influence in government. So much money wasted on politics that would better spent on real problems rather than egomaniacs.

It's no longer about a campaign leading to an election, from now on it's an auction.
In 2008 Obama spent $780 million.
The 2012 campaign is projected to be the most costly endeavor ever spending as much a $8 billion
and yes that's billion with a "b".

Begs the question "What could we do with $8 billion if it wasn't going to be blown on this election?

It's Earth Day ...

It's Earth Day and Mother Nature is gettin' hot !!! 

Contrary to what some pinheads continue to say real scientists have confirmed that planet earth is getting hotter and it's because humans continue to ignore the warning signs. Call it 'global warming" or call it "climate change" as long as everyone gets together to face the reality. It's real and it's a problem that must be dealt with.

"Climate Change Is Not a Hoax"

Take time and listen to a real scientist..

It's April 20th again !
That's right it's 4/20 and this is a holiday that many celebrate with the mythical magical mindfuck also known as marijuana.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em. I don't but if I could I would.

Another year has gone by and the truly ignorant powers-that-be continue to ignore the will of the people by maintaining the prohibition of pot.
The "War on Drugs" is an abysmal failure.

Look at the statistics.
Harmful use of alcohol results in 2.5 million deaths a year.(WHO)
Tobacco related deaths. 5.1 million from smoking (WHO)

So then inquiring minds want to know, why is marijuana illegal but alcohol and tobacco are available, regulated and taxed?

Wiki this mister

Bradley Manning was arrested in May of 2010. He wasn't arraigned until February of 2012.
So much for a "speedy" trial.  There must be different rules for military personnel (property), aka UCMJ.
Beware whistleblowers, the Empire is a pissy bitch.
