This is kind of a good summary of some of the various issues and events that I've blogged about over the past few years. Our country is going to shit like it never has before. Occupy Wall Street has a lot of sympathy from people due to our government pulling off shit like this. It's not just the corporations that are angering people -- though they certainly help.

Good! Coca is not harmful, and even cocaine has a far lower death rate than alcohol, both among daily users (1/3rd as many deaths) and occasional users (1/15th as many deaths). Quite literally, if everyone who drank stopped drinking and did cocaine instead, we'd see far less deaths. Coca-Cola was cocaine, for chrissakes. Santa Claus's modern image is directly related to a company that sold cocaine!
So yes, it's nice to see a country stand up for its own sovereignty and say, "We're sick of people telling us what we can and cannot do with our naturally occurring plants!"

Czech Republic study's results consistent with similar observations in USA, Germany, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.
Safe outlets for urges help reduce peoples' need to live out those urges in real life. Let us not forget that increased availability to porn in general has resulted in a decrease of rape in general.
An interesting read on a topic nobody really wants to think about.

"Why doesn't America stop supporting [insert name of corrupt dictator here] so we can kill him and free ourselves?"
Because we don't actually care about democracy. We care about power. We are possibly the most hypocritical nation on the face of the planet.
Oh wait! There is ONE democratically elected president in central Asia: Askar Akayev of Kyrgyzstan. But George W. Bush ordered the CIA to depose him in a coup. America. Fuck yeah.

It's going to happen faster than our leaders think. It always does. And the biggest threat is, of course, our spending. Something Obama hasn't changed at all. Hell, he just extended Bush tax cuts. It's all about compromise, right? (sarcasm)

It's about time!!!!! Oh wait, this was written in 1996. Why does it sound more relevant today, in the wake of governments' attacks on the truth [wikileaks]?

The U.S. government has seized the domain name so that you can't get to wikileaks other than by numerical IP address. It's finally happened: The govt trying to censor what we can see and read.
Once info is released to the public, it is no longer secret. Anyone who really wants it can get it. But that won't stop the government from trying to control what you read.

Killing a soldier that raped your sister is completely justified when there is no justice system or way to prosecute Americans under the Iraqi system. What is not justified is a U.S. Army Major ordering someone's execution using the same techniques the terrorists use. We raped, then beheaded. Why are we there again? To stop terrorism and torture? What about when we're the ones doing it?

Yes, we did all kinds of horrible things. We knew about it, and we covered it up. This is why Wikileaks is necessary: To save the lives of the innocent people tortured by America over a bullshit war that never had any justification in the first place [other than taking out Saddam, which should have been done LAST time we fought a war against Iraq].
*1300* reports of detainee torture were made to senior officers. We knew EXACTLY what was happening. We created more terror than was ever directed at us. And we gave direct orders to not bother investigating these reports. We are complicit in war crimes. Ending torture was one of the reasons we supposedly went into Iraq in the first place!
