By Andrea Billups

Problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs extend far beyond the recent disclosure that 40 veterans died while awaiting medical appointments in Phoenix.

The VA said in its April 2014 Fact Sheet that 23 veterans suffering from cancer died while awaiting medical appointments at VA hospitals throughout the system, while another 53 patients suffered some type of harm as a result of “consult” delays in gastrointestinal cancer screenings, including routine but life-saving colonoscopies.

News of the most recent deaths and poor standard of care given to veterans adds to a growing list of complaints leveled at the agency by critics, including hospital staff coverups, manipulation of data, lack of transparency, and lengthy delays for beneficiaries. The recent disclosures also come on the heels of reports…

Our Federal and State Governments won’t listen to science, physicians, the medical field or law enforcement. It’s in our antiquated politicians hands and they simply don’t care.

survey released this week by the publication Law Officer revealed that a majority of law enforcement officers want to see our country’s marijuana laws reformed.

The poll, which questioned over 11,000 law enforcement officers regarding their opinions on drug policy, revealed that just over 64% believed our marijuana laws needed to be relaxed in some form. When asked “Do you believe possession of marijuana for personal use should…” and presented with several options, 35.68% of respondents stated that marijuana be legalized, regulated and taxed, 10.84% chose that it should be be legalized for medical reasons and with a doctor’s prescription only, 14.24% said…

Gov. Sam Brownback suffers a political brownout

GOV. SAM BROWNBACK SUFFERS A POLITICAL BROWNOUT

WWW.DarwinsRightLeftWing.com

Just how deep of a hole does Kansas’ Governor, Sam Brownback find himself in?

It’s that bad for Brownback.

Sunday brought the news that the FBI was investigating some of the Republican’s closest political confidants. Investigators want to know if pressure was applied to ensure that those top advisers received lucrative lobbying contracts.

That David Kensinger, Brownback’s right-hand man for so many years and the architect of conservative dominance in the state, appears to be a focus is simply devastating for the governor.

On Thursday, Moody’s announced it was downgrading the state’s bond rating. The reason was the state’s sluggish economic recovery compared with other states. One result of that sluggishness is plummeting state revenue that fell an astonishing…

New research published in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes) shows that increasing coffee consumption by on average one and half cups per day (approx 360ml) over a four-year period reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes by 11%. The research is led by Dr Frank Hu and Dr Shilpa Bhupathiraju, Department of Nutrition, Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard University, Boston, MA, USA, and colleagues.

Coffee and tea consumption has been associated with a lower type 2 diabetes risk but little is known about how changes in coffee and tea consumption influence subsequent type 2 diabetes risk. The authors examined the associations between 4-year changes in coffee and tea consumption…

Kaneh Bosm: Cannabis in the Old Testament

Cannabis: one of the oldest medicinal plants

THEN GOD SAID,
I GIVE YOU EVERY SEED-BEARING
PLANT ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE
EARTH, AND EVERY TREE THAT
HAS FRUIT IN IT.”
GENESIS 1:29-30

Those words seem straightforward enough, and yet cannabis and most other psychoactive medicine plants are outlawed in our society. Those who use these plant gateways to other states of consciousness are jailed for doing so.

Ironically, the major force for continuing this plant prohibition is a group referred to as the Christian Right. They claim to believe in both the Bible and old Yahweh, yet Yahweh’s opinion on the matter is stated quite clearly in the above quotation.

This article shows how the Old Testament Prophets were none other than ancient shamans, and that cannabis and other entheogens played a very prominent role in ancient Hebrew culture.

Drones in the U.S. for Use on Americans? Very Possibly!

Very good video from C-Span on Drone use in the U.S.A.

Many of the members look as though they are 100-years-old and look as though they have never seen technology such as this. 

Don’t get me wrong, I have the highest respect for my elders, but their views on many subjects are so antiquated, they don’t get anything accomplished and they already don’t get anything accomplished!

Concretions Will Be Removed from Civil War Submarine

(R.G. Skerrett, 1902, Public Domain)

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA—The H.L. Hunley, a Civil War-era submarine, will be immersed in a caustic bath that will remove the concretion of sand and shell that accumulated on its 40-foot-long iron hull. The procedure will also extract salt from the hull so that the Hunley can eventually be displayed without immersing it in water. Once the sediment has loosened the scientists at the Warren Lasch Conservation Center will begin to scrape it off. “Under that concretion is the possibility of new information about the attack,” archaeologist Michael Scafuri told The Post and Courier. The submarine sank and disappeared in 1864 after it rammed a torpedo into the USS Housatonic.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK—An excavation in Lower Manhattan has unearthed liquor bottles, plates, and mugs from a nineteenth-century German beer garden that was known as Atlantic Garden, and the colonial-era Bull’s Head Tavern, built in the 1740s by a butcher near New York City’s first slaughterhouse. “The Atlantic Garden was actually a tourist destination in its day—it was known for its German food and beer, and as a place for music and parties. It was built over the Bull’s Head Tavern, a place where travelers, many selling their cattle, stopped in for food, drink, to socialize or spend the night,” Alyssa Loorya, president of Chrysalis Archaeology, told DNAinfo New York. The site is located along The Bowery, which was once the only road in and out of Manhattan.

THE WORLD’S OLDEST WRITING FOUND IN CHINA…READ MORE CLICK LINK…

WWW.DarwinsRightLeftWing.com

BEIJING — Archaeologists say they have discovered some of the world’s oldest known primitive writing, dating back about 5,000 years, in eastern China, and some of the markings etched on broken axes resemble a modern Chinese character.

The inscriptions on artifacts found at a relic site south of Shanghai are about 1,400 years older than the oldest written Chinese language. Chinese scholars are divided over whether the markings are words or something simpler, but they say the finding will shed light on the origins of Chinese language and culture.

The oldest writing in the world is believed to be from Mesopotamia, dating back slightly more than 5,000 years. Chinese characters are believed to have been developed independently.

Inscriptions were found on more than 200 pieces dug out from the Neolithic-era Liangzhu relic site. The pieces are among thousands of fragments of ceramic, stone, jade, wood, ivory and bone excavated from…
