Women of American Gladiator

Thursday, May 29, 2008 12:10 Comments Off

I can see myself on American Gladiator, especially in some of the events that rely on total conditioning and/or speed, quickness, etc. I like the event where you bounce off of the gladiators to dump balls in the baskets while they try to tackle you and keep you down. The gladiators are too awkward and [...]

Claiming a need to fight terrorism is a way for the Police-Surveillance State to become empowered and grow. The helicopter’s unmarked paint job belies what’s inside: an arsenal of sophisticated surveillance and tracking equipment powerful enough to read license plates

This caught my eye because I had meant to blog on it all week, and Nikoley beat me to it. Some people may already know that I am a cyclist – a serious cyclist. I’ve raced or trained on the road, on the track, cyclocross, and off-road (mountain biking). I no longer race, but I [...]

Read Wendy on this. Very important stuff. I’ve discussed the most minor details of food prices, for the last two years, with this gentleman. You may know Eric Englund as my sometimes writing partner. He brought back “The Hyperinflation Survival Guide” quite a few years ago, as he was way ahead of the times. The [...]

If you are going to St. Paul for the GOP convention, don’t wear your Teva sandals, have hair like a hippie, flash a peace sign, or hang out with the vegans. The feds are planting snitches and will brand dissenters as ‘terrorist groups or organizations.’ What they were looking for, Carroll says, was an informant

In Pain and Dying? Let the State Decide Your Fate

Monday, May 19, 2008 20:27 Comments Off

The lack of a free market for organs has long been the cause of needless deaths. And now, because marijuana is not a corporatist state-approved drug (unlike the overpriced pills pushed by Big Pharma), patients waiting for organ transplants, who smoke pot to deal with the pain, are being turned down for transplants. Medical marijuana, [...]
