Food stamps at pot shops

DENVER -- Food stamps for a pot brownie? It´s an urban myth in Colorado, but state lawmakers want to make sure that doesn´t happen. A bill proposed this week by several Republicans would add marijuana dispensaries to liquor stores, gun shops and casinos as places where recipients of public assistance payments and food stamps can´t use their electronic benefits cards to access cash. There haven´t been any reports of public EBT cards being used at marijuana dispensaries. But lawmakers say pot shops should be added to the law to make clear it´s not legal. "We need this bill, if for nothing else, as

Those kind of folks aren´t going to vote republican anyhow, so at least the republicans can make them go out of their way to find another, less convenient ATM, or to sell their food stamps to a third party vendor for cash.

It´s a PROPOSED bill. Given the mentality of the leftists in charge of the legislature I wouldn´t be counting on passage.

Who would have ever thought the people in Colorado were as stupid as the people in California. It would be scary to live in Nevada or Utah and be sandwiched in between the tow looney bins.

Obama´s State of the Union will promise tax
rate cuts to corporate giants but leave small
businesses out in the cold – while
increasing government´s overall take
Daily Mail (U.K.), by David Martosko    Original Article

President Obama is expected to outline a seismic shift during Tuesday´s annual State of the Union address in how much tax American businesses pay, but the devil is in the details. While his plan will lower the top corporate rate, smaller companies whose proceeds are considered individual income – since they´re not organized as large corporations – won´t see any benefit. And the net impact, says one Washington, D.C. watchdog group, will be more money, not less, flowing into the federal government´s coffers. Those funds, the group says, will be redistributed into public works projects calculated to benefit labor unions that support

The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren´t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General. —From " Harrison Bergeron " (1961), a short story by Kurt Vonnegut The year was 2019 and Americans were finally on their way toward real equality.

More Economic Freedom Is Key

The key question facing policymakers in 2014 will be how to energize the economy and lower the rate of unemployment while avoiding another financial crisis caused by asset price inflation and a misallocation of credit. The Fed seems concerned with deflation, but the real risk is that the Fed´s bloated balance sheet, and the extraordinary run-up in the monetary base during the last five years, will begin to show up in inflationary increases in the monetary aggregates. In an election year, policymakers will be timid in raising interest rates, so the asset bubbles that are becoming more and more obvious could grow

The big story that´s simultaneously being spotlighted from the Vatican to the White House, from Oxfam to newly elected Mayor Bill de Blasio in New York City, is economic inequality and the purportedly overly skewed and unjust distribution of wealth. "The human rights group Oxfam reported that the wealth of the world´s 85 richest people is equal to that of the poorer half of the world´s population," reported Voice of America on Jan. 20. In other words, the wealth of a little group of people who can easily fit into two Mercedes party buses is equal to the combined wealth of the

Raw Power: The White House said over the weekend that President Obama plans to bypass Congress because it won´t do what he wants it to. Yet again, this president goes outside the law and acts as if he were a monarch. The Associated Press is reporting that Obama´s "top advisers warned Sunday in previewing Tuesday´s State of the Union speech" that the president "will work with Congress where he can and circumvent lawmakers where he must." White House press secretary Jay Carney is on record notifying the country that "the president sees this as a year of action to work with Congress




The GOP’s Gift to Cornwallis
National Review Online, by Quin Hillyer    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 1/27/2014 6:14:56 PM     Post Reply
You all know the history of Yorktown, right? George Washington’s continental army had Lord Cornwallis’s British troops hemmed in on a peninsula with no egress available by land. A French fleet controlled the waters right offshore, so Cornwallis seemed unable to be rescued by sea. And then Washington — getting pressure from war financier Robert Morris, who thought the French were scoundrels – started working with Cornwallis to shoot cannon at the French to drive them away from the Chesapeake . . . Well, if that’s not how it really happened, it certainly seems to be the model of political warfare

Deep within the Earth, a fierce molten core is generating a magnetic field capable of defending our planet against devastating solar winds. The protective field extends thousands of miles into space and its magnetism affects everything from global communication to animal migration and weather patterns. But this magnetic field, so important to life on Earth, has weakened by 15 per cent over the last 200 years. And this, scientists claim, could be a sign that the Earth’s poles are about to flip. Experts believe we´re currently overdue a flip, but they´re unsure when this could occur. If a switch happens, we would be exposed

The past few months have seen some very promising new conservative reform initiatives emerging from Capitol Hill — ideas that build on the work of conservative wonks in the think-tank world and the academy and translate them into practical proposals. Senator Mike Lee has offered a very appealing tax-reform proposal and important ideas for transforming our approach to transportation and higher-education policy. Senator Marco Rubio and Representative Paul Ryan have outlined some promising improvements to the safety net. And today, senators Tom Coburn, Orrin Hatch, and Richard Burr have proposed a conservative health-care reform that has enormous promise. Herewith, some quick

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will work with Congress where he can and circumvent lawmakers where he must, his top advisers warned Sunday in previewing Tuesday´s State of the Union speech. Obama faces a politically divided Congress on Tuesday and will use his annual address to demand expanded economic opportunity. Absent legislative action, the White House is telling lawmakers that the president is ready to take unilateral action to close the gap between rich and poor Americans. "I think the way we have to think about this year is we have a divided government," said Dan Pfeiffer, a longtime Obama adviser.

A ban on autos? Major cities

Germany, home of the high-speed autobahn, is perhaps one of the few countries that has had as intense a love affair with the automobile as the U.S. But in an effort to go green, the country´s second-largest city is studying ways to eliminate cars by 2034. The northern city of Hamburg has laid out an initial concept, named the Green Network Plan, that would expand public transportation and add more routes for pedestrians and bicyclists. The most controversial aspect of the plan calls for a steady phase-out of automobiles in the center of the city over the next two decades. And Hamburg

Marijuana makes you stupid. Nobody wants to acknowledge the obvious fact, but that’s what this whole legalization debate is all about. That’s why most of the candidates for governor, of both parties, have come out against legalization, even if they have to obfuscate why they’re opposed to the Colorado-ization of Massachusetts. After all, the pols can’t offend that pivotal ganja-American voting bloc, assuming they can remember to vote in November. It’s left to comedians like Jay Leno Thursday night to poke around the truth: “Doctors warn that pot smoking impairs young people’s thinking, which of course makes them much more likely to sign up

Stephen Hawking has produced a "mind-bending" new theory that argues black holes do not actually exist - at least not in the way we currently perceive them. Instead, in his paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Hawking proposes that black holes can exist without 'event horizons', the invisible cover believed to surround every black hole.During a previous lecture, 'Into the Black Hole', Hawkins described an event horizon as the boundary of a black hole, "where gravity is just strong enough to drag light back, and prevent it escaping".
“Falling through the event horizon, is a bit like going over Niagara Falls in a canoe", he said. "If you are above the falls, you can get away if you paddle fast enough, but once you are over the edge, you are lost. There's no way back.

Representative Steve Stockman (R-TX), who has been nowhere to be seen for almost three weeks, may have just turned up in London after a trip to Russia, according to Breitbart. Stockman, who submitted a last-minute longshot primary challenge to Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), has missed fifteen roll call votes since January 9, and has held nary a campaign event, despite drastically trailing Cornyn in the polls for an election in early March. Reporters trying to track Stockman down have been met with unresponsive campaign and congressional offices, though he appeared to have been located last week in Cairo, Egypt.

Amazon Prime is like crack, people warn me in hushed, cautionary tones. Once you try it, you’re hooked. I personally have not signed up for Amazon’s premiere, super-duper, fancy-dancy, wave-o’-the-future membership program, even though I’m a frequent customer. But I’m fascinated by the transformation people talk about once they do. “Oh, you’ll see,” they tell me, “you’ll see.” On its face, Prime offers two simple things: Free two-day shipping on most purchases, and access to streaming movies and TV shows. All for $80 a year. Whether or not people need two-day shipping, a few things seem to happen once they

Last week the Wall Street Journal published Gregory Hicks’s column “Benghazi and the smearing of Chris Stevens.” It would be easy to overlook Hicks’s column in the crush of last week’s news, but it is deserving of special attention. In the column Hicks offers his eyewitness testimony to the security issues that Stevens dealt with at our Libyan facilities before his death. The redacted report of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Committee that was released on January 15 has left some to draw the conclusion that Stevens rejected additional security and to imply that he is responsible for the success

The honeymoon is over for Wendy Davis. The Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate this week sustained the most negative coverage she’s faced since shooting to political stardom last summer. And her campaign, still smarting from the scrutiny, is determined to change the subject by turning up the heat on her opponent, GOP Attorney General Greg Abbott, over education. In the high-profile, astronomically expensive Texas gubernatorial race, Davis was riding high just over a week ago. While she has always faced an uphill battle, she had just raked in stellar fundraising numbers and scored yet another national television interview that showcased her compelling journey

The number of people enrolled in private health insurance under Obamacare has soared by more than one-third in recent weeks to around 3 million, according to government data released on Friday. Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), announced the preliminary tally in a blog posting. She forecast that enrollment through new federal and state health insurance marketplaces would continue to grow in coming weeks as a public outreach campaign accelerates. The new data adds to evidence that President Barack Obama´s administration has turned the corner on enrollment after a botched October 1 launch.

President Barack Obama was right when he said, “The long-term unemployed are not lazy. They’re not lacking in motivation. They’re coping with the aftermath of the worst economic crisis in generations.” He should know, his policies prolong the situation. From a promised minimum wage increase, to destabilization of the health care system, to an energy policy encapsulated by “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” no part of the Obama vision is about making America freer and richer. (Snip) Washington’s unreality has become offensive on a personal level, almost an affront to America itself. Washington is booming at
