Cancer fighting ability put off for 30 years!! The Dark Ages!!!!!!

This is what I’m talking about!  America has been living in the dark ages for more than 30 years!  People to afraid to achieve goals have stunted the growth of other’s through fanatical laws and edicts in order to dictate the lives of others; others they have no right to dictate other than their dogmatic views!

Cannabinoids As Cancer Hope – NORML

“Cannabinoids possess … anticancer activity [and may] possibly represent a new class of anti-cancer drugs that retard cancer growth, inhibit angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels) and the metastatic spreading of cancer cells.” So concludes a comprehensive review published in the October 2005 issue of the scientific journal Mini-Reviews in Medicinal Chemistry.

Not familiar with the emerging body of research touting cannabis’ ability to stave the spread of certain types of cancers? You’re not alone.

For over 30 years, US politicians and bureaucrats have systematically turned a blind eye to scientific research indicating that marijuana may play a role in cancer prevention — a finding that was first documented in 1974. That year, a research team at the Medical College of Virginia (acting at the behest of the federal government) discovered that cannabis inhibited malignant tumor cell growth in culture and in mice. According to the study’s results, reported nationally in an Aug. 18, 1974, Washington Post newspaper feature, administration of marijuana’s primary cannabinoid THC, “slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36 percent.” [read more]

The Racists are now saying they’re being “reverse racism”? LOL! Karma’s a Bitch!

Don’t these people ever have anything nice to say?

They always attack everyone, and in turn, I suppose the rest of use wouldn’t have anything to talk about if they didn’t always whine. 

“Reverse racist” please, this is America, and there’s no such thing as “racism” at least that’s what people like Newt and Coulter have been saying for years.

All the sudden we’re here, and we want to see a Court system that represents a true and diverse America, but these three attack Sotomayor because she just happens to be a Latina?  Well, what’s that about?

Doesn’t sound like anything is reverse to me, sounds like the typical racist remarks I’ve been hear most of my life, only they’ve been telling everyone that there’s no such thing as racism because this is America and were a diverse country, sounds like a bunch of typical bull to me.  What do they think Prop 8 is about, it’s about bigotry, and people like them supporty it.

Sotomayor has a differen vision and different experience in life than people like those three.  She can see things that they wouldn’t see, therefore she would add to the make up of the court for the better. 

Racism, please, if anyone has experienced any type of Racism I’m sure Sotomayor as a Latina could tell you all kinds of story’s about racism, and many of our grandparents can tell the same! 

The Supreme court needs a mixture that better represents America, not a racist America.

Newt Gingrich on Twitter: Sonia Sotomayor ‘Racist’, Should Withdraw

Just a day after President Obama announced he was nominating appellate court judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, the battle over her confirmation has begun with former House speaker Newt Gingrich branding her a racist and saying she should withdraw.
Sonia Sotomayor’s SCOTUS nomination bolsters the largest minority community.

Gingrich today joined the chorus of conservatives such as Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh, who called Sotomayor a “reverse racist.”

The accusations are aimed at comments Sotomayor made during a 2001 lecture at the University of California-Berkeley. Referring to former Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s saying that “a wise old man and wise old woman will reach the same conclusion in deciding cases,” Sotomayor said, “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

On Wednesday afternoon, Gingrich wrote on Twitter: “Imagine a judicial nominee said ‘my experience as a white man makes me better than a Latina woman’ new racism is no better than old racism.”

“White man racist nominee would be forced to withdraw. Latina woman racist should also withdraw,” Gingrich wrote.[read more]

Bring America Out of the Dark Ages!

Finally!  Hopefully this will bring America OUT of the Dark Ages!

Love this quote:  “We have watched as scientific integrity has been undermined and
scientific research politicized in an effort to advance predetermined
ideological agendas”
  – Barack Obama

We’re at least 30 years behind!  Can you believe that?  Many American’s made so many inventions, but left to build them in other countries because for some reason American’s became so fearful of Science and Progress!  Finally, an inteligetn thinker in the White House, once again… 

Though, one problem, the GOP’ers keep holding back in congress, not because it’s the right thing to do, but because they are GOP’ers!  That’s it, just GOP’ers. 

Hopefully, these new democrats can keep pushing forward in progress and bring us back out of this dark age some have brought upon us all…

Obama’s Unprecedented Commitment to Science

[Adapted from my piece originally published at Red, Green, and Blue] In a recent announcement, President Barack Obama reiterated his administration’s focus on science by promising a new level of commitment—one that would have the same intensity and urgency as that which put Americans on the moon—and stressing that “the days of science taking a back seat to ideology are over.”

“We have watched as scientific integrity has been undermined and scientific research politicized in an effort to advance predetermined ideological agendas,” said Mr. Obama.

Speaking at the 146th National Academy of Science annual meeting in Washington, D.C., Mr. Obama pledged to raise spending on research and development to more than three percent of the nation’s gross domestic product, an increase of approximately $46 billion annually. “This represents the largest commitment to scientific research and innovation in American history,” said the President.

The federal share of the proposed increase on scientific research and development is in the ballpark of $15 billion — $15 billion that is no easy sell in today’s tough economic climate.

“We have finally closed the books on the Bush era of climate denial once and for all,” said Carl Pope, Executive Director of the Sierra Club, in a Tuesday statement. “Science is allowed to lead and agencies like the Department of Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency are once again in the business of protecting the public and our planet,” Pope said in advance of President Obama’s 100th day in office on April 30.

AT&T might have influenced the outcome of votes!

Great!  AT&T should be working getting me out of this dead zone!  The service is lousy where I’m at, and I get dropped calls all the time.  Please fix your network before trying to influence votes!

This story sounds like a scam!  Don’t worry, I’m not on either side, and I don’t watch the show, so my opinion is not biased on who won or who didn’t win.

AT&T May Have Swayed ‘Idol’ Results

AT&T, one of the biggest corporate sponsors of “American Idol,” might have influenced the outcome of this year’s competition by providing phones for free text-messaging services and lessons in casting blocks of votes at parties organized by fans of Kris Allen, the Arkansas singer who was the winner of the show last week.

Representatives of AT&T, whose mobile phone network is the only one that can be used to cast “American Idol” votes via text message, provided the free text-messaging services at two parties in Arkansas after the final performance episode of “American Idol” last week, according to the company and people at the events.

There appear to have been no similar efforts to provide free texting services to supporters of Adam Lambert, who finished as the runner-up to Mr. Allen.

Since then, angry supporters of Mr. Lambert have flooded online chat boards with messages claiming irregularities in the competition’s voting. [read more]

When Cops Lie!

Unfortunately, this happens all to often across the country.  It’s not just about lying on the stand, it’s also about police reports.  Police reports are used to make the police look good when they’ve been bad.  They can easily write their own story, purposely leaving out important information on the situation that took place. Yes, they will protect themselves and their jobs before they uphold the law.    When more than one cop is involved, they will have a pow wow, while the alleged “criminal” is in the holding room, while they try to get their sentences in order before writing a police report.

I’m sure there are those “honorable” cops out there, but for some reason we don’t hear of them taking their buddy’s in for manipulating the law. I used to give the benefit doubt to the cops, however, after seen so many situations where they channel their anger toward the person that has allegedly committed some “crime”, I now analyze the situation of both sides of the story.

In many cases, when the cop knows he’s done wrong, they would over exaggerate a situation in order to claim “disturbing the peace” so if a person files a claim against the cop they would have this alleged “disturbing the peace” hanging over their head.   I’m sure, there are lots and lots of alleged “disturbing the peace” charges out their, and you all know who  you are.

Norm Stamper: “That’s What Real Policemen Do; They Stand Up for Each Other”

Thus spake, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, a city cop who joined other police officers and DEA agents in a packed federal courtroom last week. All those badges flashed in support of Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Lee Lucas who is facing an 18-count indictment. The 19-year veteran stands accused of perjury, making false statements in internal reports, obstruction of justice, and civil rights violations. (The day after the federal agent was fired veteran Richland County Sheriff’s Deputy Charles Metcalf copped in U.S. District Court to a civil rights violation stemming from his work with Lucas.)

The alleged facts (Lucas has pleaded not guilty) are all too familiar: a narcotics agent recruits an informant but fails to monitor the man’s activities or verify his statements. When the narc learns of his snitch’s make-believe cases, he conceals evidence, makes false statements to his superiors, lies on the stand, and sends guiltless people to prison. Can you say “Tulia, Texas”?

Of all the shameful deeds alleged, let’s focus on one pivotal in this and so many other police scandals, namely lying. Not the “Why, yes those cargo pants are flattering” kind of lie but the kind that results in innocent people living life behind bars. [read on]

Corporations threaten Organic Industry with Toxins!

I don’t know why the US is still purchasing products from China after the products we’ve been getting from them.  First, the lives of our pets have been endangered by Chinese factories who use poison as a substitute for protein, second, our children’s lives are put endanger by the toxins in the toy’s purchased from China, and third, American’s have not jobs…  Why are American companies taking American jobs to China?  Are they that unpatriotic and greedy that they are more willing to take jobs over seas, so that they can bulk their bank accounts at Swiss banks to evade American taxes?

What ever happened to grown in America?

What ever happened to made in America?

If you go to WalMart, you should be ashamed!  Look at all those products because most are made in China! We’re not saying you can buy foreign products.  We’re saying that everything doesn’t have to be made or grown in other country’s.  America was founded by small family farmers!  Small farms made America.  American’s don’t have jobs because greedy corporation’s take those jobs over seas.  I’d call that anti-American!  First these corporation’s received tax subsidies which small family farmers were not eligible or not able to apply, and as a result those small family farmers had to sell their land to these greedy corporations, and family lost their farms that they had for generations!


Corporations Undermine Organic Reputation: Chinese Soy Imports and Toxic Petrochemicals

New Report: Many Organic Soy Food Brands Importing Beans from China We no longer trust these imports to feed our pets. They have no place in organicsCornucopia, WI: Tremendous growth in the organic soy foods industry has occurred over the last two decades as consumers seek healthy dietary alternative sources of protein. Many companies touting their “natural” or “organic” soy brands have found favor in the supermarket. A new report, released this week by The Cornucopia Institute, lifts the veil on some of these companies, exposing widespread importation of soybeans from China and the use of toxic chemicals to process soy foods labeled as “natural.”The report, Beyond the Bean: The Heroes and Charlatans of the Natural and Organic Soy Foods Industry, and an accompanying ratings scorecard of organic brands, separates industry heroes-who have gone out of their way to connect with domestic farmers-from agribusinesses that are exploiting the trust of consumers.Part of the meteoric rise in organic food sales has been built on the expectation from consumers that organic foods support a more environmentally sound form of agriculture and one that financially rewards family farmers through their patronage. “Importing Chinese soybeans or contributing to the loss of rain forests by shipping in commodities from Brazil just flat-out contradicts the working definition of organic agriculture,” said Mark Kastel, Senior Farm Policy Analyst at The Cornucopia Institute.Through a nationwide survey of the industry, onsite farm, and processor visits, plus reviews of import data, Cornucopia assembled a rating system aimed at empowering consumers and wholesale buyers with the knowledge necessary to support brands that respect the fundamental tenets of organics.

Haliburton’s former subsidiary KBR gets $80 million in bonuses

People claim to support our troops is just a rallying call by republican’s in particular the Bush Cheney clans for republican’s and friends.  Every one else fell for the lies of these people and the lies were told to legitimize the Bush’s wars.  It happens for every Bush war, many of you are probably to young to know.

You do a rallying call to support our troops, but you don’t realize what is really happening behind the scenes!  Our troops don’t get that money, and many of them had to purchase their own body armor, and many mother’s and father’s had bake sales just to get that equipment.  The equipment the soldiers were using in the Bush’s war were not even top quality equipment which only cause harm to the soldiers with many of them coming home with head injuries that will be with them for the rest of their lives!

Who gets all the taxpayer money, after Bush’s and Cheney’s clans rally the people under the guise of “Support Our Troops”?  Lets face it, the troops don’t see that money, but the companies that the Bush and Cheney’s support sure do.

Wars by Bush’s are started, so that they can help and support their friends and families through giving billions to their companies.

Support Our Troops, and sign the petition to stop rewarding people that cause reckless endangerment to our troops and have those involved charged for criminal negligence!

Hold KBR/Halliburton War Profiteers Accountable

The Department of Defense just gave $80 million in bonuses to KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, for electrical wiring contracts in Iraq. But in a dramatic Senate hearing, the DoD’s own documents revealed that U.S. soldiers have died via electrocution as a direct result of KBR’s shoddy and substandard work.

The Nation has issued a chilling report based on evidence revealed this week. Eighteen U.S. soldiers have died as a result of KBR’s work. One of the electrocuted soldiers was a decorated Green Beret whose death was classified by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigations Division as a “negligent homicide.”

KBR/Halliburton is not just distinguished by its close relationship with Dick Cheney, the company’s former CEO and the architect of the disastrous invasion of Iraq. It also happens to be the single largest war profiteer from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bush’s Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, may still lead the Department of Defense under the Obama administration. But that doesn’t mean we can’t end the blank checks for Bush and Cheney’s cronies and hold war profiteers accountable.

Sign this petition today to ask Secretary Gates to rescind the KBR bonuses, pursue criminal charges against the officials responsible for the electrocution deaths of U.S. soldiers, and stop awarding defense contracts to KBR. [sign the petition]

Boner, put your energy into the Truth Investigation on Torture! CIA lied again!

I’m floored well may not really because I’ve learned a lot about these GOP’ers over several years, decades….etc…

Seems to me that Mr. Boner is only trying to play party politics by distracting attention away from Cheney and Bush’s grievous crimes against humanity by authorizing torture. 

What’s worse, Nancy Pelosi stating that the CIA miss lead her on waterboarding or the Bush Administration authorizing it’s use through the Whitehouse attorney’s?  Several senator’s have already come out stating that the CIA has misslead them.  Can the CIA lie to the congress?  Sure! 

We’ve seen lot’s of cases were the CIA misslead the country on issue’s and the Contra Costa issue is just one of them.

I feel Boner is only distracting from more importan issues and drawing attention to Speaker Nacy Pelosi because she’s the Speaker and a Democrat, it’s silly!  He should be calling for a complete investigation on torture and waterboarding that the Bush Administration authorized through the White House attorney’s.  That’s the real propblem here, so if he can put away his Neo Republicanism maybe American can continue to Progress Forward with Obama in charge. 

BTW:  Obama is doing a great job!  No, I’m not a registered Democrat!  So, Mr. Boner, please stop whining, and put your energy into the Truth Investigation!

Kerry: CIA Lied About Contra-Cocaine Connections

House Minority Leader John Boehner pushed on Thursday for a bipartisan panel of lawmakers to investigate the veracity of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s claim that the CIA lied to her about whether it was waterboarding detainees.

“Her allegation that the CIA lied to her and that they misled Congress … is a very serious charge,” said Boehner (R-Ohio). “The Speaker has had a full week to produce evidence to back up her allegations, and I’m frankly disappointed that she has not done so.”

The Central Intelligence Agency would never lie to Congress about breaking the law, would it?

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) knows a little something about that. During the late 1980s, he led a two-and-a-half year investigation into the CIA, the Nicaraguan Contras and cocaine trafficking, and the senator was on the receiving end of CIA deception.

So, would the CIA ever lie?

“In the case of one person who was tried and convicted, they lied. He overtly lied and was prosecuted for it by the government of the United States,” said Kerry just off the Senate floor. “He was the director of operations for the region.”

The CIA’s inspector general later opened a second investigation looking into the matter and also determined that the agency was aware of the Contra involvement in drug trafficking, did nothing to stop it and in fact interceded with the Drug Enforcement Administration to block investigations — and then misled Congress about it.

Study Finds that Marijuana Cures Brain Cancer

It does a lot more than that!  Western medicine is so slow!  Nature herbs have been used for thousands of years, heck some pharmaceuticals have been trying to steel medicinal medicine from the people by trying to put patents on various herbs or other medicinal plants and trees!  Herbs belong to the People[every one], not the pharmaceutical companies!  It’s called Biopiracy!

So, why is the government trying to stop the use of Medical Cannabis or Marijuana?  Could the pharmaceutical companies loose a money as a result of people using it?

SF Health News Examiner: Marijuana compound fights brain cancer: Study

Guillermo Velasco and a team of researchers at Complutense University in Spain have shown that the psycho-active chemical in marijuana, delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol (THC), encourages brain cancer cells to begin a process called autophagy, in which the cell basically dissolves itself.

The team noted that cannabinoids such as THC showed cancer-fighting effects in mice implanted with human brain cancer cells and in human patients with brain tumors. When mice implanted with human brain cancer cells that received the THC, showed significant reduction of tumor growth. [read more]
