Pot Cultivation in Today’s America

barra | It’s Official, marijuana represents the USA’s most lucrative locally grown product – at $200 billion/annum, corn, wheat and potatoes are chicken feed. While U.S. borders seep various powdered imports it’s good ol’ home grown pot that makes the bankers smile. The USA is drowning in contraband and the negative social ramifications of the neo-PROHIBITION of unenlightened conservative beliefs – when will they ever learn? more...  0 Comments

AJLPP HAILS PHILIPPINE COURT OF APPEALS DECISION TO JUNK SMITH PLEA FOR TRO

AJLPP-USA | The AJLPP-USA today hailed the the Court of Appeals decision on Tuesday that junked rape convict Lance Cpl. Daniel Smith’s plea to be returned to United States custody.

The court’s Special 16th Division denied Smith’s prayer for a temporary restraining order on Makati Regional Trial Court Judge Benjamin Pozon’s decision to keep him at the Makati City Jail, noting that his petition “precisely involves a determination of the regularity of the act of respondent judge…

World's Worst Culture of Organized Pre-Election Killing Sprees Worsens Further

Ernesto E. Barraquias Jr. | In the years and months that led to the most hotly contested national elections in the Philippines in May 2004, Ernest Barraquias Jr. and his then 8 year old nephew dependent Richswaze Barraquias suffered unimaginable horrors as virtual hostages and victims of organized crime groups that include erring high-level public officials. He now calls the world's attention to help put a stop to widespread election-related violence and bloodshed.

Close Torture Bay

Eds | January 11, 2007 -- Citizens to target illegal Detention Centre

The world today is in no doubt as to the criminal status of the illegal detention centre of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The past three years have not only witnessed unprecedented assaults on the founding principles of the USA by the Bush regime, but also on international law and convention. The government of the USA is clearly rogue, a fact in which its officials delight. The contempt the neo-cons display for their own citizens is only exceeded by the extreme disdain they exhibit toward the international community. Each day that Guantanamo Bay remains operational is a day of unspeakable psychological horror, torture and injustice. more...  0 Comments

CCNY Snitch Sergey: Leader of the ProtestWarrior 101st Fighting Keyboardists (IDF Edition)

Modern Pitung | Not too long ago, Sergey "the Snitch" Kadinsky -- the bigot whose letter to The Daily News touched off the faux-controversy over the Morales/Shakur Community and Student Center -- came by these parts (among other sites covering the controversy) to drop some linkspam for his shitty Xanga blog. Doing some research, I've found Sergey Kadinsky has amassed quite a backlog of garbage under his online pseudonym, "Mazeartist". more...  1 Comments

News Item: US Courts to Seek "Cruelty-Free" Execution Methods

Prof. Varlet | Good morning, students! Today in Philosophy 101 we're going to be studying the the morality of the death penalty in a "Culture of Life".

What is the death penalty? It's the ultimate punishment, the sentence of death that is given out to those people who have committed the most heinous crime of all: homicide, the murder of a fellow human being. Is it not a contradiction to outlaw murder as the worst of all crimes, and then to make society's penalty for murder, death? Although on the face of it, this seems to be contradictory, we shall soon see that this is not, in fact, the case.
