Official! The Police no longer need a warrant!

November 21st, 2010

Roland Michel Tremblay

It took me two years to finally send this article, I was afraid, afraid of the police and other authorities. It is now official, the Police no longer need a warrant to enter your home and look through your things, hoping to find something to incriminate you. I am a living proof of it, twice over, living in the United Kingdom no less.

Never would have I expected this from such a country. There you are, they found nothing, there was nothing to be found, and yet, we have found something. Something serious, critical, significant. This is the end, the beginning of a new way of life, an all powerful Police State against which we are all powerless. It has begun. and it happened to me not once, but twice in the last two years, our worst fears have materialised.

Unrecognized Palestinians: Illegally Demolishing Their Homes and Villages

November 21st, 2010

by Stephen Lendman

In October, the Adalah Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, together with nine other human rights organizations, addressed a position paper on "The unconstitutionality of the state's policy of demolishing Arab Bedouin unrecognized villages in the Negev" to three Israeli officials:

-- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,

-- Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, and

-- Minister of Justice Yaakov Neeman.

Citing the illegality of home demolitions, in this case of Arab Israeli citizens, they urged halting them immediately and finding a durable solution for unrecognized village residents. In Salim Abu- Medeghem v. The Israel Land Administration (April 14, 2007), Israel's High Court proposed replacing demolitions with solutions based on dialogue, Justice Arbel ruling:

Buffett Thanks "Uncle Sam" for Big Bailout Payday

November 20th, 2010

Michael Collins

The people's oligarch Warren Buffett just wrote a thank you letter to "Uncle Sam" published in the New York Times. It is the height of cynicism. (Image)

Buffett has a carefully crafted public image as a brilliant but people-friendly master of investments. We hear about his regular table at an Omaha diner where he conducts business (just plain Warren) and we see his occasional public stands for reasonable policies like the inheritance tax.

He claims that "Uncle Sam", the government, saved us from a financial catastrophe that would have swallowed up his company. He then endorses the notion that the housing bubble was based on "mass delusion" - meaning it was our fault. But he forgets to mention that he took advantage of the 2008 crisis to purchase a $5 billion interest in Goldman Sachs. And he forgets whose money "Uncle Sam" stole from the Treasury to save him and the rest of his cronies. What an asshole.

GERD is Gone but WhatReallyHappened

November 20th, 2010

By Robert Palmer

It’s been 36 hours and I feel a lot better without the GERD that burns but I am still coughing from all that junk in my mouth and throat.

[Note: One minor correction to “GERD gone in 60 Seconds”, “I did not leave the pharmacy with a generic. I left with the over-the-counter (OTC) Prevacid and Maalox.” I have NOT opened either bottle.]

I am going back a year to figure out what caused my Reflux laryngitis.

Must have something to do with “congestion” since a decongestant stopped the burning and belching.

Abraham Maslow developed a Model of our Hierarchy of Needs and number 1 is:

Biological and Physiological needs - air, food, drink, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep, etc.

SLEEP is really high on my list and about a year ago I discovered Benadryl, an Allergy and Cold medication, helped me sleep.

People take it to treat allergy related symptoms, NOT TO SLEEP.

Drowsiness is a side effect, but like the huddled masses I was under the false impression over-the-counter means it’s safe and the fine print on the package was too small for any of us to read.

Over-the-counter really means the side affects are so subtle you will have trouble suing the drug companies.

In the case of Benadryl, try and bring a lawsuit against Warner Lambert Consumer Healthcare for a drug that treats some for sinus congestion and others for the opposite, a runny nose.

Hell is for Children

November 20th, 2010

by Keith Johnson

Somewhere in America, a seventeen-year-old boy is living the last year of his life.

He is in the first semester of his senior year. His grades have been good, and he expects to have enough credits to finish school early. He feels like he’s been in school his entire life. But he has no regrets. Along the way, he has made many friends. He took up an interest in baseball and found that he had a talent for playing the drums. He is in his prime. He’s lean, fit and healthy. His mind is sharp and he has an insatiable appetite for life.

He has also fallen in love—for the first time. She is the most beautiful thing he has ever seen. He thinks about her all the time, and pines when she is not near. When they are together, they share wild fantasies about how they’d like to start a family and go into business for themselves selling sporting goods. He also wants to start a band—just for fun—and perform on the weekends at local venues.

Americans Voted Few Incumbent Bums Out

November 20th, 2010

Joel S. Hirschhorn

For some years a number of groups have been advocating voting out incumbents in Congress, both the House and the Senate, as a path to reform and improve the US political system. You might have thought that with this year’s incredible widespread public anger with both major parties and the remarkably low confidence level in Congress this anti-incumbency movement would have scored a huge victory. It did not happen.

Even more surprising, perhaps, because for many months before the elections there was endless media predictions that incumbents were at risk of losing their seats, which was backed up by hundreds of polls showing historical high levels of voter dissatisfaction with Congress.

Palestinians’ white knight blots his escutcheon

November 20th, 2010

Stuart Littllewood

From champion of the vulnerable to betrayer in one bound… Nick Clegg, Britain’s new deputy prime minister, is surprisingly agile.

Betrayal started with Sheffield Forgemasters, a well-respected company in Clegg’s own constituency, who were promised a government loan to enable them to compete for large contracts in the nuclear industry. This was cancelled as soon as the new government was formed with Clegg as deputy prime minister.
