If you buy or sell non-new goods and live in the state of Louisiana, you can no longer use legal tender to complete such transactions. Ackel & Associates LLC, a professional law firm, explains that House Bill 195 of the 2011 Regular Session (Act 389), which was recently passed by the state legislature and signed into law by Republican governor Bobby Jindal, prohibits anyone who "buys, sells, trades or otherwise acquires or disposes of junk or used or secondhand property [from entering] into any cash transactions in payment for the purchase of [such items]." Doing so could land you up to five years of hard time in jail.

Michael Moore Posts Julian Assange's Bail

Posted by Pile (6520 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


President George W. Bush (as shown in this actual photo) was presented a "secret" document on August 6th, 2001. Its heading read: "Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US." And on those pages it said the FBI had discovered "patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings." Mr. Bush decided to ignore it and went fishing for the next four weeks.

Moore asks America, how different things might have been if Wikileaks had been around and made that information public, instead of it being ignored?

In the wake of death threats from the US Government against the founder of Wikileaks - a journalistic web site that posts "whistleblower" information on important social, economic and political issues, a file has mysteriously appeared that is ten times larger than anything else, merely labeled "insurance."

Mrs. Thomas Goes To Washington

Virginia Thomas, a self-described "ordinary citizen from Omaha, Nebraska, is an unabashed conservative (to paraphrase Seinfeld- not that there's anything wrong with that). She "intrigued" by Glenn Beck, is a big fan of Rush Limbaugh, and wants America to get back to "core conservative principles". Toward that end she has started a 501(c) nonprofit that can raise unlimited cash from corporations and spend it advocating for any politician or position in any race across the country. That nonprofit's activities would've been banned by federal law if not for the help of one very special man.

KBR: Whitewashing Gang Rape Creates A Better Workplace

Posted by MarkPile (6265 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


Senator Al Franken asks the attorney for KBR/Halliburton a few questions regarding the current bill he authored before congress that 30 Republicans voted against. It seems pretty simple: Franken believes the government should not do business with companies that force their employees to take serious criminal matters to private arbitration in lieu of actual justice. In this case, a woman who was brutally gang raped and locked inside a storage container fights for her right to face her accusers in court. Watch as KBR's attorney tries to defend their bizzare stance on the issue.

Green Day has the most popular CD in the country, but you won't be able to find it at your local Wal-Mart.

The band says the giant superstore chain refused to stock its latest CD, "21st Century Breakdown," because Wal-Mart wanted the album edited for language and content, and they refused.

Keith Olbermann: Obama Is Wrong And Selling America Out

Posted by Pile (5977 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[Beating Dead Horses]
In the wake of the release of the memos from the Bush administration showing their fraudulent mandate for torture and disregard for domestic and International law, President Obama has claimed it's time to put that behind us. "No. You're wrong.", says Keith Olbermann, and he's not alone.

Perhaps one of his most compelling and powerful arguments, Keith shows how the nation has never "moved forward" without "fixing the mistakes of the past" first and foremost, and until that is done, the past is destined to repeat itself with even more heinous results. Best Godwin argument I've ever seen...

The Truth About Gun Control And Partisanship

[BSAlert *exclusive*]
Ever since Obama was elected to the White House, conservatives and gun enthusiasts have been screaming about how likely Barak Obama is to take away peoples firearms. People talk of the "Clinton ban" which restricted assault weapons in 1994 and claim another Democrat in the White House is bad news for gun owners.

But is this truthful? Are Democrats more for gun control than Republicans? We examine historical and recent legislation to reveal that a lot of what people are saying is total BS...

Feds Say Air Fresheners Are Now Probable Cause

Federal appeals court ruled that motorists can be stopped for 30 minutes and searched if they are nervous and use an air freshener.

Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson. A federal appellate court ruled last week that police can delay a routine traffic stop as long as necessary to conduct a search for drugs. In its decision, the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld the validity of a thirty-minute traffic stop in Maryland because the arresting officer claimed the nervous driver had an air freshener hanging from his rear-view mirror and had previously been spotted driving in a run-down neighborhood.

All Of Congress Covers Up Administration's Crimes

Posted by Pile (7133 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


For six years, the Bush Administration and the nation’s communication companies have been illegally spying on Americans’ phone calls and e-mails. They did this in direct violation of the Constitution’s 4th Amendment and a federal statute – FISA. Both laws emphatically forbid such surveillance unless the government first obtains a warrant from an independent (eg, FISA) court.

Your Congress, including the Democrats are now working to give the companies that colluded with the administration immunity for these crimes.

By the way, both Barak Obama and John McCain sold out on this one. Obama voted for it; Every single republican voted for it. McCain was too much of a coward to even vote, but we all know which way he would have voted - certainly not against party lines.

July 4 2008: A Declaration For Our Times

Posted by Pile (6780 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]

[Activists]
A group of so-called "rabble rousers" have placed an ad in today's New York Times... it's well worth a read...

“We the people of the United States,” the first words of the Constitution, make it clear that our government was established to serve the people. Our Constitution contains checks and balances to prevent abuses of power, and our Bill of Rights limits government in order to guarantee fundamental rights and liberties. Today the "War on Terror" undermines those crucial limits on power that our Constitution promises. Congress's complicity in this war has enabled constitutional violations of including warrantless surveillance, torture, indefinite detention, and preemptive war.

Fighting against one violation at a time fragments our movement. It is time to unite to face the common source of these problems.

Want to know if waterboarding is torture? Ask Christopher Hitchens. Previously, this outspoken writer and atheist has taken the atypical view among his contemporaries that the war against those in the middle east was not necessarily a bad thing, and that water boarding was not torture.

One of the biggest stories in the last 20 years, American media is largely ignoring. Gore Vidal has something to say about it...

On June 9, 2008, a counterrevolution began on the floor of the House of Representatives against the gas and oil crooks who had seized control of the federal government. This counterrevolution began in the exact place which had slumbered during the all-out assault on our liberties and the Constitution itself.
