13 A team from the U.S. Defense Department will visit both a state and a federal prison in Colorado to assess their possible use for housing detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, senior U.S. officials said Friday.


Obama is thumbing his nose at congress once again. Congress has passed several laws forbidding ther government from putting GITMO terrorists in US prisons. Remember, long ago Bush had already released all but the worst of the worse. The remaining prisoners are so bad their own home countries do not want them back.


But as long as impeachment, defunding, or anything else is off the table he can do anything he wants.

Of course strychnine is a poison. Hell, drug dealers will cut their product with powdered milk or talcum powder if that's all they have on hand. Anything to stretch the volume and increase profit. No one said drug dealers are humanitarians.

There is no quality control with street level drugs. Can you imagine if, after the local and/or Fed cops get done charging for drug crimes, the FDA enters the picture, too? If they did to dealers what they do to real pharmaceutical companies, I'm good with that.

========
It's a drug they give you in a hospital and now they pass it out on the street among addicts. It plugs into the brain receptors that opiates wd plug into, thereby, rendering the opiates benign - until the narcan wears off. So, if you have a lot of opiotes in your system and the narcan wears off - you can OD again. Reportedly, these people coming in need 2-3 shots of narcan.

102 >>>But Roger Waters, of Code Pink Floyd, blasted him for playing in Israel. 


We would zig zag our way through the boredom and pain,

Occasionally glancing up through the rain.

Wondering which of the buggers to blame...

oh wait a sec. I know who's to blame. It's those darned Jews. They're always responsible.

Yep, the economy has been limping along for the last 7 years, despite Obama's multi-trillion-dollar spending sprees and the Fed's 0% interest rates. And the Obama administration has been lying about the employment numbers for years, with the MSM complicitly reporting the lies as facts, even though everybody knows it's all total BS.

But there won't be any attention paid by the MSM to the dismal state of the economy unless/until there is a Republican in the White House they can blame for it all.

This is because capitalists are all working against each other instead of collectively helping each other, and the community.

This is why they construct imperfect systems. We need a new Federal department in charge of engineering a People's Operating System, which will contain the best of all worlds, with all the features that you desire.

Posting this at the end of the thread after pretty much all of you will have moved up to the book thread, but here's my Sunday Morning Praise, courtesy of Mercy Me. Wynona Judd does a version of this, but her YouTube version has too long of an intro. Amy Grant also does it,but her voice is to whispery for me. So I went with the original:





I can only imagine .....

Surrounded by your glory
What will my heart feel?

Will I dance for you Jesus
Or in awe of you be still?

Will I stand in your presence
Or to my knees will I fall?

Will I sing hallelujah
Will I be able to speak at all?


I can only imagine ....
