Here’s the latest on the medical marijuana legislation in the U.K.
Do you think a free citizen should have the right to grow food on their own private property? A city board in Missouri doesn’t think so. In fact one family has been given a mere four days to destroy their beloved food source simply because it is in their front yard. Nathan Athans loves his garden. “I spend all my free time out here,” he says. Besides the therapeutic and health benefits of getting your hands in the soil, and the financial savings of having fresh nutritious food readily available, Nathan also enjoys the peace of mind. “I want my family to know where their food is coming from, I don’t want to have to go to the grocery store and worry about what was done to that food,” he says.
Sanders knows how to bust up the big banks. He’s already introduced legislation to do just that. And even without new legislation a president has the power under the Dodd-Frank reform act to initiate such a breakup.
The Panama Papers may spell disaster for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. As it turns out, the then-Secretary of State and President Barack Obama supported the trade deal that made the whole thing possible.

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”
HUD has proposed a new law, which if passed, would make living in a tiny house or an RV illegal starting in April of this year.
We are very concerned what appears to be a glaring and very violent assault on small farmers, Black farmers, and the right to self-determination in this country, via the recent seizure of North Carolina Farmer Eddie Wise’s land. On Wednesday, January 20, 2016, around 7:30 a.m., at least fourteen (14) Federal Marshals in full military gear with full-scale military guns drawn, along with several county sheriff officers, descended on the 106 acre farm in Nash County, NC, and forcibly escorted Eddie Wise and his wife, who was still in bed and suffers from a debilitating medical condition, out of their home and off the land that they have owned for more than 20 years.
Some Bernie Sanders supporters have had enough of CNN’s shenanigans when it comes to providing unbiased coverage of the 2016 presidential primaries. The latest call-out comes from the network “whitewashing” the gray-haired candidate’s supporters.
Inadequate rest for pilots and constant flight time switching do not allow the pilots bodies time to rest adequately. This causes deep fatigue and affects judgement. Pilots are punished for declaring unfitness to fly, and many have quit. Too few pilots remain to safely fly. This problem is not limited to Dubai or Emirates but is an industry wide concern. Predictions of crashes by pilots have gone unheeded.
The Rolling Stones, even back in 1989, didn’t want to have anything to do with Trump—but Cohl promised he would “control” Trump. Part of the agreement Cohl makes with Trump is that he can’t be associated with the Stones. At all.
