Katrina pushes issues of race, poverty at Bush

I don’t know if anyone saw Kanye West but he was so angry about this, he couldn’t even get his words out.  I’ve seen the poor unable to get out and its a shame.  I disagree that its just African Americans feeling pain for the victims I think its any American with a conscience and a heart.

White House tries to quell perceptions that its policies deepened divides

By Michael A. Fletcher

Updated: 4:06 a.m. ET Sept. 12, 2005
WASHINGTON - Hurricane Katrina has thrust the twin issues of race and poverty at President Bush, who faces steep challenges in dealing with both because of a domestic agenda that envisions deep cuts in long-standing anti-poverty programs and relationships with many black leaders frayed by years of mutual suspicion.

In the storm’s aftermath, the White House has been scrambling to quell perceptions that race was a factor in the slow federal response to Katrina and that its policies have contributed to the festering poverty propelled into public view by the disaster.

Doctor pleads guilty in prescription-drug case

I went to high school with this guy!

http://2theadvocate.com/stories/062405/new_doctor001.shtml

A Baton Rouge doctor on Thursday admitted to writing prescriptions without a medical reason.

Dr. Mark M. Cotter, 40, pleaded guilty to a five-count indictment, which also included one charge of cocaine distribution and one of marijuana possession.

Cotter and his attorney, Aidan Reynolds, declined to comment as they left the U.S. District Courthouse.

Sentencing is scheduled next week before U.S. District Judge James J. Brady.

On the four most severe counts, Cotter faces maximum sentences of up to 20 years in prison with fines of up to $1 million on each count.

Army Reservist’s Defense Rests in Abu Ghraib Abuse Case

I don’t care how barbaric “they” are, sensible people don’t do these things unless they have a special relationship with the devil or the US government.  I hope that these guys name some people in the CIA or military intellegence.  It would be a shame if only the lower enlisted soldiers get jail time for this.  But I guess “shit rolls down hill”.

By KATE ZERNIKE

FORT HOOD, Tex., Jan. 13 - Lawyers for the Army reservist accused of being the ringleader of the abuse at Abu Ghraib prison abruptly ended his defense on Thursday without putting him on the stand to testify, as they had promised throughout his trial here.

The defense rested exactly a year to the day that another soldier slipped a CD with photographs of detainees in sexually humiliating positions under the door of Army investigators at Abu Ghraib, out of fear, he told them later, that the reservist would abuse prisoners again. The photographs set off nine high-level Pentagon investigations and international outrage toward the American military.

“I feel fantastic,” the reservist, Specialist Charles A. Graner Jr., said, after motioning a reporter over to him in the courtroom after the defense rested. “I’m still smiling.”

Sending the same photograph to another friend, Specialist Graner wrote, “Try doing this at home, and they’ll lock you up if you don’t have some type of license,” adding, “Not only was I the healer, I was the hurter. O well life goes on.” Guy Womack, a lawyer for Specialist Graner, had called him “an outstanding candidate” to testify, saying last week that no one else could explain as well what had happened at the prison. On Thursday, Mr. Womack said he thought other evidence had adequately established that Specialist Graner had been acting under orders. “We came in with a checklist of things we wanted to present to the jury,” he said, “Once we accomplished that, there was no reason to continue.”

Here’s more about the MJ case.

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court appeared hesitant Monday to endorse medical marijuana for patients who have a doctor’s recommendation.

Justices are considering whether sick people in 11 states with medical marijuana laws can get around a federal ban on pot.

Paul Clement, the Bush administration’s top court lawyer, noted that California allows people with chronic physical and mental health problems to smoke pot and said that potentially many people are subjecting themselves to health dangers.

“Smoked marijuana really doesn’t have any future in medicine,” he said.

Justice Stephen Breyer said supporters of marijuana for the ill should take their fight to federal drug regulators _ before coming to the Supreme Court, and several justices repeatedly referred to America’s drug addiction problems.

Dozens of people, some with blankets, camped outside the high court to hear justices debate the issue. Groups such as the Drug Free America Foundation fear a government loss will undermine campaigns against addictive drugs.

The high court heard arguments in the case of Angel Raich, who tried dozens of prescription medicines to ease the pain of a brain tumor and other illnesses before she turned to pot.

Supporters of Raich and another ill woman who filed a lawsuit after her California home was raided by federal agents argue that people with the AIDS virus, cancer and other diseases should be able to grow and use marijuana.

Prisons/Slave Labor - How the Money Works in Prisons

This seems the best way for “patriotic” Americans to earn some good ole cashola.  Investments in the Prison Industrial Complex (I call it PRIC), are skyrocketing.  Ask the next telemarketer that calls you (You have opted out, haven’t you?), where they are located.  The chances are that they are located in somebody’s prison.  Don’t hang up now!  They have your address and will surely steal from you when they get out.  Conspiracypanet.com has more to say about this than I do.

I used to be paranoid, but that was only because people were after me.”

Definitely after posting this link the “Big Four” will take a special interest in me and very likely you if you read the story.

Domestic Terrorism 101

Where do the most Anti-American people live?  Who should we fear the most?  I say that most of them were born and still live here in this country. 

Has anybody ever heard of Timothy McVeigh?  Remember him?  Remember when, our “selected resident”, George W. Bush said that the United States would chase down terrorists and the organizations and countries that support them? 

How much attention is being paid to the guerrillas in our midst?  I haven’t heard of any bombs being dropped in Waco lately.  I am not saying that all residents of Waco are evil separatists.  They just live near Gomorrah. http://eyeonhate.com has been keeping their Eyes On Hate.

Don’t be brainwashed by thinking that terrorists are all Muslim clerics with an agenda.  Timothy McVeigh was a Christian that served in the US military.  Don’t let the media or your shallow coworker or neighbor make you believe that Islam is the religion of hate.  There is no religion of hate besides the religion of ignorance and bigotry.

Can I get a witness?

Help keep jobs where they are!

Verizon employees need your help!

I may need your help too if businesses continue to mis-manage.  In a country where a CEO can make more the 500x the average worker’s base pay, we need to make our voices heard.  Now, I do realize that many people don’t see a problem with someone making millions of dollars a year.  I hope those same people can realize that by keeping CEO’s and other executives pay based on their company’s performance, we can halt the rising trend of bonus payments that aren’t based on said performance.  Who can honestly explain to me that an executive can get a seven figure raise after a year of declining profits and poor market performance?  If you can explain that to me and not feel dirty while saying it, then I’m sure you are going straight to hell.  This is a huge problem.  The solution is “simple”.

“If the people will lead, the leaders will follow”

Start here now.  Let (y)our congressman know how important it is to keep our people employed fairly.  Sign and forward the petition.
