Special: Deep background on the big cartel arrest – Brasscheck

George Bush Sr. used to do business with Panama's Manuel Noriega. Brasscheck In fact, Noriega was on the CIA's payroll for years - even though he was a major facilitator of drug running and money laundering. Then the Bush Sr. got tired of him and it was "bombs away." The US has apparently gotten tired of another one of its shady allies Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman who was arrested yesterday to much superficial media fanfare. One top cartel member says Guzman's Sinaloa Cartel were armed by the US and given "free pass" for their operations for years in exchange for playing ball with the US.

Response to “Fluoride”: Calcifier of the Soul

This is why the phrase “a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing” was invented. There is NO relation between fluoride and fluoxetine!! They are COMPLETELY different molecules. What we think of as “fluoride” (the stuff in toothpaste, for example) is NaF. Fluoxetine is C17 H18 F3. "Fluoxetine" is simply a “brand name” but has NOTHING to do with fluoride. Yes, Fluoxetine has fluorINE (NOT fluorIDE) molecules within it, but, as the chemical structure above notes, it is the SMALLEST part of the molecule. The molecule is MOSTLY a hydro-carbon. THERE IS NO FLUORIDE IN PROZAC! PERIOD!! I REALLY wish that people would learn REAL science so they don’t keep regurgitating and perpetuating PSEUDO-science.

Taibbi: Yuppie Prohibition League Denounces Pot Legalization

Matt T in RS ..
With all the other nonsense going on in this country, it's amazing (but of course expected) that anyone with other things to do would find the time to denounce Colorado's legal marijuana experiment. Yet here they come, luminaries like MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, publishing mogul Tina Brown, and Yale blowhard-in-residence David Brooks, all hot to build a Wall of Decency around the New American Menace. They are the 21st-century version of the Anti-Saloon League, gathering now to denounce the perils of the legal recreational joint. Brown put it this way, in a tweet:
. . . legal weed contributes to us being a fatter, dumber, sleepier nation even less able to compete with the Chinese
Right. Because marijuana, not China's bottomless supply of slave labor, is what's responsible for the West's growing trade imbalance.
Brooks I would expect. Tina Brown?? Used to think she was ok.... read more
