NJ Bill to Legalize Cannabis, Gov. Christie Threatens Veto (tags)
In New Jersey, Senator Nicholas Scutari has introduced a bill (S1896) that would tax and regulate cannabis like alcohol. Despite several deaths (Sabina Rose and others) resulting from the state's ineffective medical cannabis program, Gov. Chris Christie remains stubbornly in denial of the scientifically proven medical benefits of this outlawed plant.
Qaddafi lies live on after him (tags)
While no one deserves to die in a war, of the estimated 30,000 Libyans to die in the struggle to overthrow Mummar Qaddafi, no one else can be said to have had it coming more than Mummar Qaddafi. Not only did he rule for more than 40 years by using terror, he had tens of thousands murdered, he conducted his 10 month campaign to stay in power with the utmost brutality. Most of those 30,000 souls were Libyan civilians killed by Qaddafi with artillery, tanks, snipers and cluster bombs. He targeted civilian to the end and so made the UN mission to protect them synonymous with ending his rule. So I find it odd that many on the left single out the killing of Mummar Qaddafi to demand investigation and justice for.

AT&T RAISES RATES ON FEATURES (tags)
Millions of Californians will start paying several dollars a month more for land-line phone service after AT&T's second price increase for custom-calling features since the state lifted rate caps last year. The nation's biggest phone carrier this week boosted the cost of caller ID, call waiting and a host of other features for a la carte phone service. The move could push many people to sign up for bundles of services, such as phone and Internet together, that could save them money overall but cause them to spend more with AT&T. Two-thirds of AT&T's customers have bundled services, which aren't subject to the rate hikes.

THE POPE'S TWO PETERS (no pics please) (tags)
Two intelligence leaks from the Vatican have reached Texas despite massive media coverage indicating that JP 2, the incumbent pope as far as I know, had a tendency to favor "Peter", which is two books in the new testament which seem to describe the Kalpa, (end of all time and space), and the wheel of life, (hell if you want it), in two letters from two Peters.

Nazi Influences on the Anti-Communist Delusions of the Cold War (tags)
Pacifica Radio's Larry Bensky recently ridiculed a caller who asked a question about possible Nazi influences on the anti-communist hysteria of the 1950s. Bensky was apparently unaware that McCarthy travelled with old guard Nazis and fascists in the intelligence community, and the hysteria was their group effort, despite the uninformed denials of "alternative" media figures who should know better.
