A day after receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, retired Justice John Paul Stevens on Wednesday night backed President Barack Obama’s suggestion during his 2010 State of the Union address that the Citizens United decision could lead to “foreign entities” bankrolling American elections.
He urged the U.S. Supreme Court to explicitly explain why the president’s words were “not true,” as Justice Samuel Alito famously mouthed on camera, breaking the justices’ usual stoic appearance during the president’s annual speech.
The Blue Bloc is made up of the local, state and federal law enforcement (sic) officers and agents who have unleashed a coordinated, relentless, and often unlawful assault on the Occupy movement for more than eight months now.
The Blue Bloc possesses a wide array of taxpayer subsidized, military-style weaponry – including biological (pepper spray) and sonic (LRAD) – in the name of taking on an enemy (sic) armed (sic) with signs, chalk, musical instruments, cameras, and mobile libraries and kitchens.
The Blue Bloc have decided that Occupiers are no longer lazy, selfish, and unwashed but instead are terrorist masterminds. (Not even the Occupiers’ neighbors are safe from the Blue Bloc’s diversity of tactics.)

Walker’s campaign released a statement from the first-term Republican saying he would use the defense fund to pay his two criminal defense lawyers “to review documents and assist me in cooperating” with the secret probe.
"The only way you can set that up is if you are under investigation or being prosecuted," said Michael Maistelman, an election lawyer who is representing former Walker aide Tim Russell in the John Doe investigation. "One can only draw the conclusion that either one of those two things is happening."
But Walker spokeswoman Ciara Matthews said late Friday that the fund was set up “under the guidance of the GAB.”
For the first time, scientists have discovered that tuna contaminated by last year’s radiation leak from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant have crossed the Pacific Ocean, some 6,000 miles, into U.S. waters,. Levels of radioactive cesium-134 and cesium-137 have been found at ten times the normal levels in fish off of the coast of California. The current levels, say officials, are still below the levels considered unsafe by the U.S. and Japanese governments.
In the video, course instructors repeatedly break and cut off the limbs of live goats with tree trimmers, stab the animals with scalpels, cut holes in them, and pull out their organs... WHILE THE ANIMALS ARE CONSCIOUS - AS PART OF A TRAUMA TRAINING EXERCISE.
Former students at 18 Delta Special Forces Combat Medical School might reference it as ‘Goat Lab’, but let’s not forget the brave goats, pigs and cats (they simulate infants) that have also sacrificed their lives so that others may live.
There is currently a Bill before Congress, H.R. 1417, the Best Practices Act, sponsored by Southern California’s very own Rep.

Basically, Eric Simons moves into the AOL work campus, lives on the couches, eats the food, showers, uses the gym, does laundry there - for two months straight to work on HIS startup stuff for his own profit.
A homeless woman from Bridgeport who enrolled her 6-year-old son at a Norwalk elementary school has become the first in the city to be charged with stealing more than $15,000 for the cost of her child’s education.
Tanya McDowell, 33, whose last known address was 66 Priscilla St., Bridgeport, was charged Thursday with first-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit first-degree larceny for allegedly stealing $15,686 from Norwalk schools. She was released after posting a $25,000 bond.
The differences in the language used to describe the two situations is pretty striking.
My two cents —>
Where the fuck is Tanya’s child SUPPOSE to go to school? If she doesn’t send the kid to school she’d get in trouble… the ONE thing Mittens has said during his campaign I agree with is that he would give poor students and those with disabilities the right to attend any public or charter school in their state.

“One-third of women murdered every year in the United States are killed by their intimate partners. In 2005 that amounted to 1,181 women, or three women every day. To put that in perspective, the UN estimates there are 5,000 honor killings every year in the entire world. 5,000 in a world of 6 billion versus nearly 1,200 in a single country of 300 million. In other words, a woman in America runs a greater risk of being killed by her husband or boyfriend than a woman in Pakistan.”—
