    I lived in Vegas for awhile, out on East Owens. The problem with Vegas when judging homeless is that it is hard to judge who is homeless because of true hard luck economics and those who are homeless because their personal addictions put them there.

    Absolutely... Being homeless in better weather is a much better alternative to being homeless anywhere else...

    Purposely designed to sacrificially lose money for tax reasons. Not just Musk's company but all the companies who contribute to it also write it off. I have worked for several corporate "divisions" of a larger company designed to lose money on purpose as a tax shelter for the whole. Anyone who goes to a job interview in management with any kind of inventory usage and control needs to make this question clear, "Am I supposed to save this division money or is it sacrificially designed to lose money?"

    EMORY HEALTH SCIENCES—During the height of the Civil War, the Confederate Surgeon General commissioned a guide to traditional plant remedies of the South, as battlefield physicians faced high rates of infections among the wounded and shortages of conventional medicines. A new study of three of the plants from this guide—the white oak, the tulip poplar and the devil’s walking stick—finds that they have antiseptic properties. Scientific Reports is publishing the results of the study led by scientists at Emory University. The results show that extracts from the plants have antimicrobial activity against one or more of a trio of dangerous species of multi-drug-resistant bacteria associated with wound infections: Acinetobacter baumannii, Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumoniae. https://popular-archaeology.com/article/civil-war-plant-medicines-blast-drug-resistant-bacteria-in-lab-tests/

    Federal judge who blocked Trump's border wall donated $20K to Obama A federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s plans to build a border wall along the United States-Mexico border previously donated almost $30,000 to former President Obama, other Democrats, and a political action committee. U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000. Gilliam made the donations, first reported by the Epoch Times, prior to serving as a U.S. District judge. He had said during his confirmation hearing that he “would base my decisions solely on the facts of each case and the applicable precedent, without regard to any political ideology or motivation,” and that “any personal views would not interfere in any way with my ability to neutrally apply the law.” Gilliam is one of three federal judges who have donated to Democratic candidates in the past and recently ruled against the Trump administration.

    "are using the phrase totally differently than Ron Paul." Some of us have longer memories than you do apparently... By Ron Paul With the November elections looming, politics is taking priority over sensible policy. It appears congressional leaders have no intention of addressing the issue of illegal immigration this year, preferring not to tackle such a thorny problem for fear of angering voters one way or another. But this is a mistake. The American people want something done about illegal immigration now — not next year. All sides in the immigration debate agree that the current, “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” policy cannot continue. That’s why I am joining several of my colleagues in demanding that the Senate vote this month on a border security bill already passed by the House earlier this year. I truly believe border security is the most important issue for millions of Americans. Both the Bush administration and congressional leadership have promised to spend the next two months addressing national security issues. But real national security cannot be achieved unless and until our borders are physically secured. It’s as simple as that. All the talk about fighting terror and making America safer is meaningless without border security. It makes no sense to seek terrorists abroad if our own front door is left unlocked.

    So the logic of Congress is to invade every other country on the planet, but, leave our borders wide the fuck open and just let everyone else invade us at the exact same time? We really do have TRAITORS in high positions of power in this country.

    Without independence you can't have liberty and you can't have independence without the means to produce your needs. Aside from the direct threat of conquest there is also the fact that allowing the destruction of your economy will create millions of voters that are dependent on government for their needs while impoverishing and thereby disempowering millions more. Political power (and therefore liberty) flows out of gun barrels and bank accounts. It has been said (and seemingly forgotten) that even if you believe in open borders you can't have them while the welfare state exists and it is just as true that even if you want free trade or something as close to it as possible you can't have it while the regulatory state exists.

    Trump said he was asking for an "expedited appeal." "Another activist Obama appointed judge has just ruled against us on a section of the Southern Wall that is already under construction. This is a ruling against Border Security and in favor of crime, drugs and human trafficking," he said in a tweet.

    President Donald Trump Saturday vowed to make the US trade relationship with Japan a "little bit more fair", as he kicked off a four-day visit to Tokyo aimed at cementing ties between the two close allies.Trump's four-day trip is expected to feature plenty of warm words and images as he plays golf and watches sumo with his "friend" Shinzo Abe, Japan's prime minister. But the world's top and third-biggest economies are also thrashing out a trade deal and Trump wasted no time in lashing out at what he sees as an imbalance between the pair. "Japan has had a substantial edge for many, many years. But that's OK, maybe that's why you like us so much," Trump told leaders from some of Japan's leading companies, including Toyota, Honda and Nissan. After a bilateral trade deal has been signed, it will be "a little bit more fair," vowed the president. "With this deal we hope to address the trade imbalance, remove the barriers to United States exports and ensure fairness and reciprocity in our relationship. We're getting close," said Trump. He added: "We hope to have several further announcements soon and some very big ones over the next few months." Japanese and US officials hail as "unprecedented" the relationship between Trump and his "golf buddy" Abe, and the pair are scheduled to again find time for a round to burnish their diplomatic bromance. Just over an hour before Trump arrived, a 5.1-magnitude earthquake rattled buildings in Tokyo, with the epicentre very close to where the leaders are due to tee off.

    The new charges do seem designed to keep Assange from being extradited, if they wanted to actally prosecute him they would have waited until they had him here to hit him with them. They also seem to be going overboard in order to force the MSM to defend him.

    Rachel Maddow has aired a segment condemning the new indictment against Julian Assange for 17 alleged violations of the Espionage Act. Yes, that Rachel Maddow. MSNBC’s top host began the segment after it was introduced by Chris Hayes, agreeing with her colleague that it’s surprising that more news outlets aren’t giving this story more “wall to wall” coverage, given its immense significance. She recapped Assange’s various legal struggles up until this point, then accurately described Assange’s new Espionage Act charges for publishing secret documents. Wow. Make no mistake, this is a hugely significant development. This isn’t just some columnist for the New York Times or the Guardian, this is Rachel effing Maddow, the Queen Mother of all tinfoil pussyhat-wearing Russiagate insanity. This same pundit was just a couple of months ago not just smearing but outright lying about Assange, deceitfully telling her audience that the new legal rings closing around Assange were about his 2016 publications then instructing viewers not to Google anything about it because they’ll get computer viruses. Now that she’s recognized that this could actually hurt her and her network directly, she’s finally feeding her audience a different narrative out of sheer enlightened self-interest. In addition to Hayes’ coverage of the story, MSNBC’s Ari Melber also did a segment harshly criticizing the implications of Trump administration’s new charges. We’re seeing multiple segments from CNN about the grave dangers of the legal precedent that is being set with the superseding indictment, as well as urgent warnings about the new charges from major publications like the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Guardian. The outlets which have been smearing Assange relentlessly are now finding themselves forced to defend him.

    They're starting to panic. The Deep State coup-tards are pointing fingers and crying foul, desperate to distract attention from President Trump's "un-American" efforts to uncover the reality behind the US intelligence agencies' "spying" on his campaign and efforts (which appear to go to the very top) to unseat a democratically-elected leader of the free world. This morning, it was former CIA Director John Brennan's turn as he seemed upset at a cartoon that President Trump tweeted last night... Young people everywhere: Please do not emulate Mr. Trump’s very immature behavior. Find others of honesty, integrity, & decency to be your role models. And always try to do what you know is the right thing, even when doing what is right is both unpopular & difficult. https://t.co/DptZcfk1Z1 — John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) May 24, 2019 Which got us thinking... Has the mainstream media always been so trustful and genuflective of the US intelligence agencies or was there a time (before Trump) that the press did their job and questioned the elites? It turns out there was... in 2014. In March of that year, Senator Dianne Feinstein lashed out at the CIA for spying (yes that word!!) on Congress on Senate Intel Committee: “I have grave concerns that the CIA’s search may well have violated the separation of powers principles embodied in the United States Constitution,” she said. “I have asked for an apology and a recognition that this CIA search of computers used by its oversight committee was inappropriate. I have received neither.” “The facts will come out,” Brennan told NBC News in March after Feinstein's comments “Let me assure you the CIA was in no way spying on or the Senate,” he said. But, as the truth hit, in July 2014, none other than The Washington Post printed a story lambasting the lies gushing forth from then CIA Director Brennan's and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
