Police cleared after beating schizophrenic son of policeman to death.
"The incident was captured by a bystander with a cell phone, and bus surveillance tape released Monday showed agitated witnesses describing how officers beat Thomas and used a stun gun on him repeatedly as he cried out for his father.On the cell phone video, a man can be heard screaming over a fast, clicking sound that those on the tape identify as a stun gun being deployed.A male witness says the man, identified as Thomas, was sitting on a bench when he was approached by two officers and ran from them. The man says police used a stun gun on Thomas six times."They caught him, pound his face, pound his face against the curb ... and they beat him up," the man said. "They beat him up, and then all the cops came and they hogtied him, and he was like, `Please God! Please Dad!""
Carolla asserts that LA Cops aren't necessarily racists, they routinely beat just about anyone up.
""Now you see my fists?" Fullerton police officer Manny Ramos asked Thomas while slipping on a pair of latex gloves. "Yeah, what about them?" Thomas responded. "They are getting ready to fuck you up," said Ramos. A video of the event surfaced, and Thomas can be heard repeatedly screaming in pain while officers are heard repeatedly asking him to place his arms behind his back. He audibly responds "Okay, I'm sorry!" and "I'm trying!""
It was only 6 against 1, the cops barely had a chance.""When I arrived at the hospital to see him, I honestly thought that gang bangers had got a hold of him like the cowards sometimes do and just beat him with a baseball bat in the face," he said. "Immediately my thoughts were to get with Fullerton police ... and I didn't learn until a certain amount of hours later the truth. That put me in absolute shock."Thomas father, Ron Thomas, told CBS News, "If you or I did this, we'd go to prison for murder. That's exactly what needs to happen to these (sic) group of rogue officers. They need to go to prison for murder."A police spokesman, Sgt. Andrew Goodrich, said the case was an isolated incident."We have a good department full of good individuals," he said. "We've made more than half-a-million law enforcement contacts over the past 4.5 years ... This is the only instance of this kind that's happened."Goodrich said officers receive training on how to deal with the mentally ill and the homeless. But an attorney representing the department, Michael D. Schwartz, said that "public perception of officers' trying to control a combative, resistive suspect rarely conform to those officers' training, experiences, and what those officers were experiencing at the time or reality.""..."This is the only instance of this kind that's happened."" They were Angels in all their other interactions with the public.
Debt Up $6.666 Trillion Under Obama The total debt of the United States did not exceed $6.666 trillion until July 2003. In the little more than five years of the Obama presidency, the U.S. has accumulated as much new debt as it did in it’s first 227 years.A real Fiscal Hawk, according to r2.
$17,293,019,654,983.61 and counting.Had it not been for the Sequester, we'd be talkin Real Debt.
Damn Republicans, spoiling a real debt run like that.Think of the money we could of printed.
The r2 Golden Age is upon us - White House: When you think about it, 2.5 million fewer people working because of ObamaCare is good newsposted at 3:21 pm on February 4, 2014 by Allahpundit I’m done, guys. If we’ve reached the stage of welfare-state decadence where it’s a selling point for a new entitlement that it discourages able-bodied people from working, there’s no reason to keep going. We’ve lost, decisively.As a great man once said, remember me as I am — filled with murderous rage.In a statement and conference call featuring top administration officials, the White House tried to beat back an emerging narrative that the CBO report supported claims made by health care reform critics. The CBO report says the Affordable Care Act could lead to a reduction of 2 million full-time workers between 2017 and 2024. The CBO says the reduction would not come via fewer available full-time jobs (as critics of the law have alleged) but “almost entirely from a net decline in the amount of labor that workers choose to supply.”…“To put that in context, I have no doubt that if we eliminated Social Security and eliminated Medicare, there would be many 95-year-olds that would choose to work more hours than they’re working today just so they could survive, feed themselves and have health insurance,” the official said.The CBO’s projected reduction in full-time workers, then, “shouldn’t be a significant cause for surprise and it reflects the fact that workers have a new set of options and are making the best choices that they can choose to make for themselves given those options,” the official said.In other words, it’s not that employers will be offering 2.5 million fewer jobs. It’s that ObamaCare, by subsidizing low earners and expanding Medicaid for the very poor, will incentivize 2.5 million people not to work. Or, if you prefer:Billions upon billions of dollars in economic productivity up in smoke as workers who’ve stuck with their jobs for the health insurance quit and take a subsidies check from Uncle Sam instead. To the White House, which otherwise bleats about “growth” at every opportunity, this is a feature of the law, not a bug. WaPo’s fact-checker even rushed out a piece this afternoon in defense of their position. The law’s not destroying 2.5 million jobs, says Glenn Kessler, it’s merely inviting 2.5 million employees to quit. How much does it matter to growth, though, if the labor force shrinks on the demand side versus the supply side? Will all, or most, of the vacated positions be filled by younger workers or will they evaporate as businesses downsize (or close down)? If giving people more “choice” in whether to be employed or not is now our cardinal social good, we might as well go for a guaranteed minimum income and clear out all the wage slaves. Let’s see how small we can get the labor force before the wheels come off the economy.Don’t act surprised, either. Nancy told you this was coming. Look on the bright side: If fewer people working is a sign of economic success, the Obama presidency will be remembered as a golden age.http://hotair.com/archives/2014/02/04/white-house-when-you-think-about-it-2-5-million-fewer-people-working-because-of-obamacare-is-good-news/Nice video of Nancy "Brain Dead" Pelosi too !!!

Pissant Definition from Language, Idioms & Slang Dictionaries & GlossariesSlang DictionariesAustralian Slangsmall, aggressive person very drunk very daring waste time; fart about Pissant Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & GlossariesWikipedia DictionariesWikipedia English - The Free EncyclopediaA pissant, ***also seen as piss-ant and piss ant***, is one or the other of two specific types of ant. Its origin is with pismire, a 14th-century word for ant. The term is also used as an insulting noun, and a pejorative adjective. The original pissant is any of a certain group of large ant species, commonly called wood ants, that make mounded nests in forests throughout most of Europe. The name pissant arises from the urine-like odor produced by their nesting material—needles and straw from pine trees—and the formic acid that constitutes their venom. ****Whatever the case may be, Allen, I submit that the Australian slang definition of the word -Australian Slangsmall, aggressive person very drunk very daring waste time; fart about --- fits "q to a t".:)ahardeaharharhar
A not impossible event, if her history is her guide, to be sure.
ObamaCare is becoming a national security concern. The Roosians have hacked it, via Belarus, and if they can do it, think of the Chinese. From ObamaCare it's a short leap over to the National Security Agency, and from there to Homeland Security, thence to the Defense Department and the nation's chain of command, and early warning systems, etal.ObamaCare may turn out to be "the death panel" for us all, and not just for its intended victims, the nation's old folks.
And we all say Thank You, r2.
If Obama has a policy of weakening Assad (and who knows what his policy is when even he doesn't know for sure) it seems to be, cough, working well -•U.S. Spy Chief Says Assad Has Strengthened His Hold on Power - Michael R. Gordon and Mark MazzettiJames R. Clapper Jr., the director of national intelligence, said Tuesday that President Bashar al-Assad's hold on power in Syria had "strengthened" over the past year, and that he had benefited from a deal to abandon his chemical weapons arsenal. Not only has the Assad government blocked progress at the Geneva peace talks that started last month, according to American officials, it has also delayed taking its most dangerous chemicals to the port of Latakia to be shipped out of the country. The government has also blocked shipments of medicine and food to besieged areas.

He reported an uptick in attacks in the West Bank, coming mostly from individuals as opposed to terrorist organizations. There were 1,700 terrorist attacks in 2013, including shootings, firebombs, stabbings and rock-throwing, as well as several attempts to kidnap civilians and soldiers. Cohen listed economic problems and lack of trust in PA President Mahmoud Abbas by Palestinians as reasons for the attacks. (Jerusalem Post)
The Obamacare Security Nightmare: It Gets WorseFebruary 5, 2014 by Michelle Malkin OcareFraudsters on the inside, hackers on the outside. Here we are, stuck in the middle with the security nightmare called Obamacare. Can it get any worse? Yes, it can.After the spectacular website crashes during last fall’s federal health insurance exchange rollout, enrollees will soon wish the entire system had stayed down and dead. “404 Error” messages and convicted felon Obamacare navigators may be the least of our health care tech problems now. The latest? U.S. intelligence agencies notified the Department of Health and Human Services last week that the Healthcare.gov infrastructure could be infected with malicious code. Who’s responsible? Washington Free Beacon national security reporter Bill Gertz writes that U.S. officials have “warned that programmers in Belarus, a former Soviet republic closely allied with Russia, were suspected” of possible sabotage. A government tech bureaucrat in the Belarusian regime bragged last summer on Russian radio that HHS is “one of our clients” and that “we are helping Obama complete his insurance reform.”Gulp. When an authoritarian minion from the country known as “Europe’s last dictatorship” boasts about “helping” the Obama White House, be afraid. One of our intel people spelled it out for Gertz: “The U.S. Affordable Care Act software was written in part in Belarus by software developers under state control, and that makes the software a potential target for cyber attacks.”No kidding. The friends of Vladimir Putin are not our friends. If you’ve been paying attention, you know that Belarus and other Eastern European hacking gangs have been at the center of several recent international cybercrimes. These aren’t merely schemes to steal credit card numbers or vandalize websites with annoying graffiti. They’re acts of espionage and sabotage — like using malware in a phishing scheme aimed at White House employees to gather military intelligence and pilfer sensitive government documents.It’s not just the federal health care system’s problem.

January was bloodiest month in Syrian civil war Nearly 6,000 people died January in the Syrian civil war, as the total toll since March 2011 rose to at least 136,227. Releasing these figures, the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights warned that the real numbers may be much higher as accuracy is affected by the extreme secretiveness of all the sides. Among those killed were 47,998 civilians, including more than 7,300 children. Meanwhile, in media circles Scarlett Johanson is a whore for selling Soda Stream.

But your lazy intellect, much like that of WiO, often slips into the fallacy of argumentum ad hominem (or ad femina, as the case may be). I could point out that the Israeli settlers in the West Bank have secured for themselves the most fertile land in the Jordan valley, leaving only the dregs for the other tribes, and you (or WiO) will reply, "This from the fake lesbian veteran Catholic Filipina who squats on Puyallup ancestral land."
Ms T: I could point out that the Israeli settlers in the West Bank have secured for themselves the most fertile land in the Jordan valley, leaving only the dregs for the other tribes, and you (or WiO) will reply, "This from the fake lesbian veteran Catholic Filipina who squats on Puyallup ancestral land."Love the way you answer what others would say.Most of your answer is good, except I would say the "other tribes" portion is crap.I would also point out the the arabs control 899/900th of the middle east. The 1/900th that israel controls? is 20% arab.My point being is that your telescopic focus on on valley, while ignoring the other 899/900th of the middle east is specious.Jews have a right to live in the land of Israel. they have a right to farm and make Soda Stream. BTW how are those wonderfully productive Greenhouses GIVEN to the Palestinians working out?

Save the Swans from Being Slaughtered!take action please share it helps! share on facebook share on twitter share via email Dear Member, Swans have lived in New York State since before the 1900s. So why is New York's Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) planning on killing them all off?The DEC's plan, called "Management Plan for Mute Swans in New York State," would use taxpayer money to systematically murder all of these beautiful creatures. The DEC claims that the swans are a nuisance and that they become aggressive while nesting. But that is true of many birds trying to keep their babies safe -- and swans shouldn't be slaughtered en masse for a protective instinct that's in their nature.Plus, the swan population is actually stabilizing throughout the state, suggesting that a large-scale cull isn't necessary. Even if that weren't the case, though, there are other, more humane methods of reducing their numbers, including trapping, neutering and releasing the birds.Birdwatchers call swans "charismatic birds" because they're easily identifiable and beloved by the public. If you love them, too, please ask New York DEC not to kill them!care2 Thank you for taking action, Kathleen Care2 and ThePetitionSite Team ****Save the mute swans from, voiceless, going to their deaths silently. You have a voice, sign the petition.
Never heard of a mute swan before.
As to ad hominem, that is projection - Master Race (Jews), kike, yid, porky etc.In the very act of denying ad hominem on your part, you commit ad hominem again, and simultaneous mistake the act of using disrespectful terms as argumentum ad hominem.

Just wow.ALLEN: "Over the years, she has claimed in her blogging history to be homosexual, a spy, a warrior princess, the victim of cancer, a Roman Catholic, a Taoist, an atheist, etc."TERESITA: ...you (or WiO) will reply, "This from the fake lesbian veteran Catholic Filipina who squats on Puyallup ancestral land."ALLEN: "Nothing you are saying has anything to do with me."Wow.
Facts are facts. You who claim to be a lesbian, then not a lesbian proves that you lie.You slam Jews for living in israel as occupiers and yet you are squatting on native american lands that you have no historic connection too. that is hypocrisy.You distort the jewish Scriptures, slam israel, slam Judaism and call jews yids and kikes.And then act offended when you are called out on it….is that what they call "passive/aggressive" behavior.You say you don't care about israel as long as it doesn't come out of your pocketbook. And yet you are the one that lives off the taxpayer. And the amount of actual taxes that you have funded israel? about 15 cents over the last 30 years, I have volunteered to re-emburse you.If you have a problem with me? Fine. Call me an asshole. Just like Rufus did and does.But you are a anti-semite thru and thru, grow a pair and be honest.I suggest you go to your church of choice and pray to your Jewish Lord/Messiah to forgive you for hating his family.

U.S. Postal Service Announces Giant Ammo Purchase Post Office joins other federal agencies stockpiling two billion rounds of ammoKit Daniels Infowars.com February 5, 2014The U.S. Postal Service is currently seeking companies that can provide “assorted small arms ammunition” in the near future.The U.S. Postal Service joins the long list of non-military federal agencies purchasing large amounts of ammunition.On Jan. 31, the USPS Supplies and Services Purchasing Office posted a notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website asking contractors to register with USPS as potential ammunition suppliers for a variety of cartridges.“The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition,” the notice reads, which also mentioned a deadline of Feb. 10.The Post Office published the notice just two days after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced his proposal to remove a federal gun ban that prevents lawful concealed carry holders from carrying handguns inside post offices across the country.Ironically the Postal Service isn’t the first non-law enforcement agency seeking firearms and ammunition.Since 2001, the U.S. Dept. of Education has been building a massive arsenal through purchases orchestrated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.The Education Dept. has spent over $80,000 so far on Glock pistols and over $17,000 on Remington shotguns.Back in July, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also purchased 72,000 rounds of .40 Smith & Wesson, following a 2012 purchase for 46,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point by the National Weather Service.NOAA spokesperson Scott Smullen responded to concerns over the weather service purchase by stating that it was meant for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement for its bi-annual “target qualifications and training.”That seems excessive considering that JHP ammunition is typically several times more expensive than practice rounds, which can usually be found in equivalent power loadings and thus offer similar recoil characteristics as duty rounds.Including mass purchases by Homeland Security, non-military federal agencies combined have purchased an estimated two billion rounds of ammunition in the past two years.On the other hand, private gun owners are finding ammunition shelves empty at gun stores across America.While the American public is reeling from these long-term shortages of once-common cartridges such as .22 Long Rifle, the federal government is stockpiling ammo without limit.
.NOAA spokesperson Scott Smullen responded to concerns over the weather service purchase by stating that it was meant for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement for its bi-annual “target qualifications and training.”Shooting fish in a barrel?.

Boehner on the brink: Speakership coup brewing over immigrationRep. Raul Labrador said House Speaker John Boehner should lose his leadership post if he pushes forward with immigration reform this year, CQ Roll Call reported.“I think it should cost him his speakership,” Mr. Labrador, Idaho Republican, said in an interview with the Capitol Hill news organization.Mr. Labrador also refused to rule out running to replace Mr. Boehner — even if the Ohio Republican put the brakes on immigration bills.“There is a hunger in the conference for bold, visionary leaders, and this is not just conservatives — you talk to more middle-of-the-road members of the conference, they’re kind of frustrated with the direction of this leadership, and they’re looking for ways to change that,” he told CQ Roll Call.Mr. Boehner said Tuesday that he is not sure whether he will pursue immigration bills this year, days after House leaders outlined their principles at an annual GOP retreat that included border security and legalization for most illegal immigrants. The plan also included a specific new pathway for younger illegal immigrants.Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, also said he is doubtful that Congress will pass immigration reform this year.Read more: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/feb/5/rep-raul-labrador-boehners-speakership-risk-over-i/#ixzz2sU7Drg3G Follow us: @washtimes on Twitter

"The results of an autopsy of Philip Seymour Hoffman's body were inconclusive, and more tests must be conducted to determine what caused ..."---Probly engaged in a fitness program w/o first consulting his doctor.He became suicidal when he discovered his Doc was not covered under the ACA.
r2 is a long time supporter of the opium poppy and also thinks heroin ought to be available at the pharmacy, along with crack and powder cocaine. (to those over 21)
Wife was always mocking the "More Research" Mantra of University Trolls when we were in school.
.Heroin is now the cheapest thing on the street usually mixed with some other medication. Costs about $8-$10 per hit whereas on Oxycontin can cost you many times that.http://novusdetox.com/oxycontin-addiction-cost.phpThe link above compares the cost of heroin and oxycontin addiction.I used to think we would be better off legalizing weed but recent studies I've seen come out on the long term effects have changed my mind. I think Obama condoning its use is a big mistake.As for the hard drugs, I've seen three kids that we knew die of overdoses in the last two years. A close family member is struggling with addiction right now and her life has gone to shit.I'm now definitely against legalizing these drugs.Just my opinion..
I'm not convinced the decriminalization would affect the addiction rate much however it would have a huge effect (beneficially) on lessening the lives ruined through becoming criminals for drug related crimes.
Seems more in the medical community are becoming aware that suboxone in place of heroin is risky business.Doc Pinsky has been preaching that for years.Says opiates for long term pain simply doesn't work, yet millions still become addicted and die."Opioid-induced hyperalgesia may develop as a result of long-term opioid use in the treatment of chronic pain. Various studies of humans and animals have demonstrated that primary or secondary hyperalgesia can develop in response to both chronic and acute exposure to opioids This side effect can be severe enough to warrant discontinuation of opioid treatment."But just heard a lady say that getting completely off Suboxone has been Hell, and she has not yet, even tho she's on pretty tiny doses.
My wife's life was prematurely terminated by Oxycodone.The moron doctors neglected to find a Metastasis on her femur (which could easily have been treated with radiation) and she still had breakthrough pain taking 48 mg/day, when she weighed 95lbs.The Oxy brought her digestive tract to a complete halt, she could not eat, and basically starved to death.
I have a hard time accepting the premise that we think we can outlaw nature and the god given, among the seed bearing plants.The laws stink of argument by authority. The "we know better" attitude of people with little actual experience with such.
It was more complex than that (as usual)After we gave up on her PCP ("primary care provider") and the "specialist" he referred her to, we found a wonderful woman who informed us that she could have a feeding tube implanted. (after determining what the problem was with an upper GI Series)After two days on a temporary tube through her nose, she started look a lot better.Against my wishes, she then had surgery to implant a PEG feeding tube.(My wife, our son, and the Surgeon outvoted me ...the Surgeon, a lady, listened first and foremost to her patients wishes)I tried to talk to the anesthesiologist as they were rolling her away, the Jap/Hawaiian Bastard brushed me off, blithely saying: "We'll take care of her".They did.He gave her Propofol, and when she came out of the ICU, they gave her a shot of Ativan for pain, her liver and kidneys started shutting down, and ten days later she was dead.
Her Oncologist was a lady, also.Studied at Mayo, had her own practice in Montana, took therapy for her workaholism with her patients, gave up her practice and came to Maui.Spent more time in her first visit w/Sally than the "Specialist" had in three years.Gave us all kinds of reading materials and pointers to employ on the Internets.Cunt.
The "correct" course would have been to let her get her strength back on the temporary tube, get rid of the leg pain and off the Oxycodone, and start eating again.On the ride home, our son pointed out how much more pain she likely would have suffered.(Surgeon found some metastasis in her gut.)I totally rejected that.He said I was being selfish.I've come to accept there's some truth to that.I'm responsible for putting my mom through unnecessary hell and humiliation, instead of letting hospice and heroin and nature take their course. (morphine, I guess)..So the last thing in the World I would have done would have been to try to override my wife's wishes.
Up for a deletion/reposting Duel, Mr. Dougman?
:)Every time I hit the reply button, I get thrown to the top of the page and I lose my place and concentration.
Seems those of us with the letters g, o, d, u in our first names have been hacked.
.Or it could just be the weed..
After the first week, I lost my mind.
Could be the weed, or all the alcohol I've consumed before I got a handle on my drinking, Or all of the above.
That's what Seymour said before he was dead.
You might not want to mention the size of that mug too often in polite company....or the fact that it has two handles.
So, some people will retire. And, some people will quit a job that they didn't need, except for the insurance, and do something else - start a business, and hire a couple of heretofore unemployed, go back to school, take a different job, (perhaps, part-time,) become "stay at home mom/dad," etc.Some people will Pick Up a part-time job to get a few extra hours to qualify for Obamacare. Some might start up a micro-business, on the side, to accomplish the same. Some things will happen that even I haven't thought of. This thing has "Wash" written all over it, but one thing is certain. More money will start circulating; and That is good.
I dropped a rock in your bottomless pit of ignorance and lies after your first post here, and I haven't heard a splash or a crash yet.Next, I'll try a box of rocks, just in case I missed something.
"bottomless pit of ignorance and lies?" :)And, I'm supposed to reply to "that?" :)blow me, bozo. :)
Finally.I was hoping for a Nooner, but I'll take what's offered.Just don't tell Bob 'til I'm done.
(to those over 21)As long as it is covered by "mommy and daddies policies" til age 26, I'm for it.We'll be dead and gone before they come down only to discover that the joke was on them.Let's ask Deuce if we can start a crowd-funding campaign here for a Clown Suit for r2, OK' ?
.I'm not convinced the decriminalization would affect the addiction rate much however it would have a huge effect (beneficially) on lessening the lives ruined through becoming criminals for drug related crimes.Are you talking the crime of buying and possessing the drugs or the crimes committed by people in order to feed their habit? I personally have seen what people will do to get drugs once they are addicted..
I referring the whole damn criminalization of the process. Dealers of marijuana get sent away to jail, many of them kids just trying to hustle a buck looking for a better life than washing dishes or working at McDonalds. It is even more of a travesty to send people to jail for using.Addicts are addicts and making it a crime doesn't stop them from being addicts it just makes the consequences of being an addict even worse.
Idiot.The MoFos are BLACK!
Semi-related:The history of unleashing crazies onto the streets is a lot more complex than Just Blame Reagan.
In fact, that's where I started, with the Schizophrenic Cop's Son.
I was just listening to an excerpt on the radio on my drive home between a Christian and an atheist from a debate last night. The Christian was going on about genesis being the word of god and all truth.my understanding of Islam is the Koran requires interpretation by qualified folk. 1 billion Muslims out there killing and executing all those evil edicts the islamaphobes prattle on about - not.
Revelations, my man, tune in, drop out.
In the excerpt I heard the atheist guy was using the expanding universe as a counter factual to genesis. Seems the debate was between big names and televised last night. If I get time tomorrow maybe I can fund it online. If you are keen you might find it tonight.

At least poor Ash, good man, is trying to think about things. Failing badly, it is true, but trying.Golly gee wilikers, we need to give him credit for that.He is also pledged to fund debates on-line.
He is attempting now to listen to something or other on his phone. This writer hopes he succeeds, and remains distracted for some many hours.
"We're going to see what happens in the experiments in Colorado and Washington," President Barack Obama said in a recent interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. "The Department of Justice ... has said that we are going to continue to enforce federal laws. But in those states, we recognize that ... the federal government doesn't have the resources to police whether somebody is smoking a joint on a corner."Like Senator Obama, POTUS Obama was not present.
"Obama's deputy drug czar admits marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol"Did wonders for Barrack's "education" and "job history" and "work ethic"
I exerted more energy tearing down a surplus Army Barrack at Ft. Ord, CA, then Barrack will in a lifetime.
40 by 80 two story structure.Multiple layers of (heavy) Asphalt stuck to the floors.Multiple layers of (heavy) Asphalt on the roof.105 degrees, full sun.Had a lot more fun in a Barracks like that on Active Duty in San Pedro, CA.

"Camp Roberts" was where I spent my civilian time in Hell on Earth.
Not convinced yet? Here's some further data from Rick Nevin:From 2002 to 2012, the incarceration rate fell 51% for men ages 18-19, 30% for men ages 20-24, and 21% for men ages 25-29....The prison population has fallen at a slower rate because steep incarceration declines for young men have been offset by rising incarceration for older adults. From 2007 to 2012, the incarceration rate increased by 21% for men ages 45-49 and surged 45% for men ages 50-64.Incarceration rates are way down for men in their teens and 20s, who grew up in the relatively lead-free post-1990 environment. But for older men, who grew up before then, incarceration rates are actually up. Lead did its work on them long ago.Chart of the Day
They didn't call you Pencil Dick for nothin.Jeeze.Mr numbers knows all.
Can you count the ways "Socialized Medicine" in many countries in Europe differs from "ACA" ?
"Mother Jones" folks.r2 has reached escape velocity.On Ethanol
Hmmm, one should control for demographics when postulating causes. One prime reason for declining crime rates is that youth are the prime demographic for crime and the boomers are old.
;)"But for older men, who grew up before then, incarceration rates are actually up. Lead did its work on them long ago."Old r2 admits he is 'lead dead'.And that's not factoring in all the aluminum he's sucked up from all those Budweiser cans, and he effects of the 'long term Budweiser abuse' itself, not to mention the home brew.O, and the ethanol ->>>>"Mother Jones" folks.r2 has reached escape velocity.On Ethanol<<<<;)Escape velocity?Guy struggles to get from the couch to the fridge.(I know I am being hard on r2 - but I can't get over that non-sense about selling heroin at the local pharmacy)

"I used to think we would be better off legalizing weed but recent studies I've seen come out on the long term effects have changed my mind."Is it possible Obama is suffering the long term effects of heavy chooming in his youth?
Is Obama the exception to the rule?
