Rush Limbaugh Hospitalized: Taken To Hospital In Hawaii After Reported Chest Pains

May he die and rot in hell. If praying for his death would help any, I'd have bloody knees. Same goes for all the rightwing torture fanatics. They may seek their forgiveness in the afterlife. They'll get none from me.

Merry American Christmas

clipped from

Authorities say a 12-year-old Colorado boy accidentally shot himself in the leg while playing with a loaded pistol his parents had hidden behind the family Christmas tree.

The sheriff says he won't recommend charges because the parents had left the .22 pistol a reasonable distance from the child.

Powerful Mythos Over Trivial Eros

I am not a gay Catholic at Mass. I am a Catholic. The issue of eros is trivial in the face of consecration, prayer and meditation.

Friends of Grand Valley student Derek Copp, shot by police in Campus View Apartments, accuse officers of overreacting

ALLENDALE TOWNSHIP -- Friends of Derek Copp cannot comprehend how he would pose a threat during a police raid of his Campus View apartment late Wednesday, or why a deputy shot and wounded an unarmed Copp.

"Nobody wants to think those in the criminal justice system are shooting unarmed college students," said Laura Quist, a 19-year-old Grand Valley State University sophomore who lives in an opposite hallway from Copp, 20.

Friends described Copp as an easygoing, guitar-playing young man.

Students today continue to question what happened after five officers with the West Michigan Enforcement Team, a regional drug unit, executed a drug-related search warrant on Copp's apartment. Copp, a film and video major, was shot in the upper right chest area with a Glock handgun after police came through a back glass slider door.

Cops For Pot

This will undoubtedly free the rest of the police and criminal justice system to tell the truth about the abuse of power created by outlawing the most amazing medicinal and industrial plant in the history of man. The emperor is naked.

Sergeant Fired After Criticizing "War on Drugs," Now Reinstated
SEATTLE, WA -- A Mountlake Terrace police sergeant who was fired after publicly criticizing the "war on drugs" has reached an $812,500 settlement in a lawsuit he filed against the city and police department, among others.
“In an open society, people on the front lines of the criminal justice system have an ethical duty to speak out on controversial social and legal issues that affect the public we serve," said Sgt. Wender, a member of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), a 10,000-strong organization representing police, prosecutors, judges and others who fought on the front lines of the "war on drugs" and who now want to legalize and regulate drugs. "The public has a fundamental right to know which laws and policies are effective, and which ones aren’t; and they should expect that their police officers will speak the truth even when it isn’t popular or comfortable to do so.

Surely you jest?

There is just no limit to the stupidity that ensues when drug warriors develop a craving for attention:

They want to know why Sheriff Leon Lott is going after Michael Phelps.

Lott says the picture indicated a law was being broken in his jurisdiction. He said he couldn't ignore the violation just because Phelps is rich and famous.

We've now learned that since investigators began trying to build a case, they've made eight arrests: seven for drug possession and one for distribution. These are arrests that resulted as the sheriff's department served search warrants.

We've also learned that the department has located and confiscated that bong. []

UN official: Enough evidence to prosecute Rumsfeld for war crimes
Monday, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture Manfred Nowak told CNN's Rick Sanchez that the US has an "obligation" to investigate whether Bush administration officials ordered torture, adding that he believes that there is already enough evidence to prosecute former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

"We have clear evidence," he said. "In our report that we sent to the United Nations, we made it clear that former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld clearly authorized torture methods and he was told at that time by Alberto Mora, the legal council of the Navy, 'Mr. Secretary, what you are actual ordering here amounts to torture.' So, there we have the clear evidence that Mr. Rumsfeld knew what he was doing but, nevertheless, he ordered torture."

Another Drug Related Death?

Not from overdose, but from improper sale and distribution, and the issues that result when dealing in such contraband.
Doesn't have to be this way. Pot should be legalized and sold through proper channels. It's all about harm reduction. Why are we at war with a plant that, by it's own devices, harms no one? Obama, are you listening?

Torture Enthusiasts Sweating

Let's get the facts on who did what before we decide who will be held accountable. This isn't the first time that a country has been held accountable for war crimes. There are precedents and I suggest we use them.


GOPers, Worried About Torture Prosecutions, Delay Holder Vote

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary committee are delaying for up to a week a vote on Eric Holder's nomination to be Attorney General, with some saying they want more time to consider his record on torture.

John Cornyn, Republican of Texas, told Politico:

Part of my concern relates to his statements at the hearing with regard to torture and what his intentions are toward our intelligence personnel who were operating in good faith based on their understanding of what the law was.

Holder declared last week at the hearing that "water-boarding is torture."
