A Modest Proposal: Mandatory Military Service for Congress posted 02/23/2015, 1:57 PM (Chad Nelson)
[Category: Commentary]
If it seems like only months ago that America’s warmongers were claiming there would be no need for US boots on the ground in the fight against the Islamic State (IS), that's because it was. When the politicians initially decided to promote IS to the position of threat du jour, they promised that threat could be eliminated without sacrifice of American lives. Defeating IS would require only indirect measures, such as "support" for "our partners" in the region like "Jordan, Lebanon and the Syrian... (more)

Overdose Deaths From Heroin Galvanizing Leaders in Maryland and Virginia posted 02/23/2015, 1:57 PM (Washington Post)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
Political leaders in Annapolis and Richmond are searching for ways to combat a wave of heroin overdoses that is killing dozens of their constituents each month — in inner-city neighborhoods, suburbs and rural enclaves.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has declared reducing heroin use a priority and put his lieutenant governor in charge of finding solutions. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) introduced a package of heroin-related bills in the past week that would, among other provisio

Welp, another old friend just died a day ago from what appears to be a heroin overdose. I know four people so far who have died in the last few years, two used to be close friends. Another friend of mine who ran in those circles says he knows 10 who have died in the last year. After the government made Oxycontin harder to use (the pills are now uncrushable and laced with garbage), people switched to using heroin, which could be bought for something like 1/8th the price, and now they're dropping like flies. As this article notes, the deaths year over year are going up around %50, if this was Ebola killing people there would be widespread panic, because it's government prohibition killing people it barely hits the radar. Of course, the government's reaction is mostly more prohibition, as well as a few band-aids to treat the problem their prohibition has created, but there's no calls to end the war on drugs so people can get safer drugs from pharmaceutical companies in regulated doses, which mind you when it comes to opiates, they're used in our nation's hospitals in massive amounts every day entirely legally. - Chris, InfoLib

In their minds, the 11 years of brutal occupation on the part of the U.S. military brought freedom to the Iraqi people. In fact, that mindset also pervades many Americans in the private sector, including veterans, who are absolutely convinced that the U.S. invasion, war of aggression, and occupation of Iraq brought freedom to Iraq....
