Alvin Lee, Ten Years After guitarist and Woodstock standout, dead at 68
Post Date: 2013-03-07 08:28:03 by sneakypete
Alvin Lee, one of the major guitar virtuosos from the 1960s British school of blues-and-rock purism, died Wednesday of "complications from a routine surgical procedure." He was 68. Lee was best known as the lead guitarist of the band Ten Years After, whose 11-minute version of "I'm Going Home" at Woodstock in 1969 became one of the memorable musical segments of the subsequent concert film. Woodstock propelled Ten Years After into the forefront of the second-wave British Invasion, whose emphasis often was on flashy guitar playing with extensive solos. Lee told the BBC in 2012 that he still had the 335 he played at Woodstock, but that he didn't use it much any ...
Dennis Rodman Hammered -- Sean Penn, Michael Moore Get a Pass [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2013-03-07 08:27:13 by A K A Stone
Former NBA star Dennis Rodman traveled to communist North Korea, a trip financed by a documentary filmmaker. Rodman appeared neither officially nor unofficially as part of the U.S. government. An incredulous George Stephanopoulos of ABC subjected Rodman to a grilling more suitable for a corrupt, double-dealing politician: "When you said you love Kim (Jong Un) and think he's awesome, were you aware of his threats to destroy the United States and his regime's horrendous record on human rights? ... Do you think you have a responsibility to ask him about it so that you don't be perceived as sort of propping up his regime, his cult of personality? ... (He's) a 'great ...
Randpage: Hour 8 / Rand Paul vows to speak 'as long as it takes' to block Brennan
Post Date: 2013-03-06 20:05:15 by We The People
WASHINGTON -- In a rare, traditional filibuster, Sen. Rand Paul vowed to speak on the Senate floor "as long as it takes" to draw attention to his concerns about the Obama administration's policy regarding the targeted killing of American terrorism suspects. The Kentucky Republican took to the floor before noon Wednesday to block an expected vote on the nomination of John Brennan to lead the CIA, with aides saying he could continue for hours. Paul, beginning his remarks, said he would continue "until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that our Constitution is important." "Are we so complacent with our rights that we would allow a president to say he might ...
Tell Your Senator to Support Rand Paul!
Post Date: 2013-03-06 20:01:30 by We The People
Rand Paul is simply looking for an answer. Can the Obama administration assassinate Americans in their own country without due process? This is a basic issue of civil liberties. In filibustering the nomination of John Brennan to head the Central Intelligence Committee, the Kentucky Senator is taking a historic stand for liberty. The Constitution preserves the right of all Americans to due process. So far President Obama has refused to answer if the Bill of Rights still applies under his new security policy. The question is simple: do we still have our traditional rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Senator Rand Pauls filibuster is an attempt to answer this vital ...
There Used To Be Freaking Camels In The Arctic
Post Date: 2013-03-06 20:00:18 by Ferret Mike
In the northernmost reaches of Canada, within the Arctic Circle, scientists have found fossils of...camels. Wait, what? North America was a crazy place a few million years ago. The megafauna alone would make the world's most awesome zoo collection: giant sloths! Mastodons! Nine-foot saber-toothed salmon! Dire wolves! And, believe it or not, camels. Yes, camels originally arose in North America 45 million years ago and lived there until human migrated into the area around 16,000 years ago. So, we might expect to find camels somewhere in North America, sure. But researchers just found fossils on Ellesmere Island, in the northern territory of Nunavut, Canada, far above the Arctic ...
Rand Paul slams Attorney General Holder for 'refusal' to rule out drone strikes in US
Post Date: 2013-03-06 19:57:57 by We The People
Sen. Rand Paul is blasting Attorney General Eric Holder's assertion that the government could conceivably use drones against its own citizens in the U.S. as "frightening," saying such an action would violate the Constitution. Paul, R-Ky., was responding to comments by Holder released Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee approved the nomination of John Brennan, President Obama's pick to be his next CIA director. Paul said in a statement obtained by Fox News that Holder sent him two letters regarding the constitutionality of the use of legal force, such as drones against Americans and on U.S. soil, after Paul petitioned Brennan to speak on the matter. In the ...

A very young former Congressman Ron Paul discusses guns in this rare video from 1989, recently released by the Free to Choose Network. On Tuesday, the Free to Choose Network, a non-profit political organization dedicated to promoting the principles of personal and economic freedom, released a video on their YouTube channel of a young former Congressman Ron Paul talking about guns in 1989. In the video, Paul says that "no one should tell you you can't own a gun because it might be misused." He goes on to make the argument that any misuse of an object, including a gun, should be dealt with in the courts. Paul is also shown holding a gun in the video while he references ...
Sen. Rand Paul: Is Obama Administration Hiding Arms Trade to Jihadists?
Post Date: 2013-03-05 19:56:27 by A K A Stone
As he did during last months hearings on the Benghazi attacks, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) once again brought up the possibility of an Obama administration cover-up of the role played by the CIA in providing weapons to opposition forces in Syria. During an interview Sunday night on WABC Radios Aaron Klein Investigative Radio, Paul said, There has been a lot made of the political cover up of President Obamas administration saying this (Benghazi attack) had something to do with a homemade film from some guy in Los Angeles. But in reality the question is, or the secondary quotation is, why would they do a cover up? What are they covering up? Continuing ...

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez dead
Post Date: 2013-03-05 17:22:25 by calcon
CARACAS, Venezuela President Hugo Chavez, the fiery populist who declared a socialist revolution in Venezuela, crusaded against U.S. influence and championed a leftist revival across Latin America, died Tuesday at age 58 after a nearly two-year bout with cancer. Vice President Nicolas Maduro, surrounded by other government officials, announced the death in a national television broadcast. He said Chavez died at 4:25 p.m. local time. During more than 14 years in office, Chavez routinely challenged the status quo at home and internationally. He polarized Venezuelans with his confrontational and domineering style, yet was also a masterful communicator and strategist who tapped into ...

Zimmerman Stuns Court, Waives Right to 'Stand Your Ground' Hearing in Trayvon Martin Case

ABC News - Zimmerman Stuns Court, Waives Right to 'Stand Your Ground' Hearing in Trayvon Martin Case (ABC News) George Zimmerman's attorneys stunned court observers Tuesday when they waived their client's right to a "Stand Your Ground" hearing slated for April that might have led to a dismissal of the charges in the shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin a year ago. However, the defense lawyers didn't say whether they would waive the immunity hearing outright. They left open the possibility for that hearing to be rolled into Zimmerman's second degree murder trial. Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch captain in his Florida subdivision, shot ...

By now, we're all well aware of the woeful tale of the Applebee's waitress in Missouri who publicized getting stiffed on a tip from a church pastor last month and subsequently was fired. Objecting to an 18 percent tip automatically included on her restaurant bill, Pastor Alois Bell crossed it out and wrote: "I give God 10 percent why do you get 18?" Waitress Chelsea Welch posted a photo of the bill on the social media site Reddit, and the story went viral, prompting the restaurant to fire her for the unseemly disclosure. These types of "stiffers for Christ," unfortunately, are not all that rare. "The idea that Christians are poor tippers apparently has ...

Arpaio loses appeal on pink-underwear case
Post Date: 2013-03-04 17:31:55 by Ferret Mike
The 9th Circuit said dressing inmates in pink underwear a hallmark of Joe Arpaio appeared to be punishment without legal justification. The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to hear Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaios appeal of a ruling that criticized a decision by his jail officers to force pink underwear onto a mentally ill inmate who erroneously believed jailers were trying to rape him. The refusal by the court means the lawsuit by the estate of Eric Vogel appears headed to trial for a second time. Arpaios office won the case at trial, but the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals threw out the verdict and called for a new trial in a ruling a year ago. The 9th Circuit ...

When I began writing this I was overwhelmed with the desire to hit something

I was once a Republican living in a red state. Today Im a registered Democrat living in a blue state. This is my story and why I left the Republican Party. It all started in 2007. I was a 27 year-old divorced woman with no children. I was a survivor of severe domestic abuse. I was single with no money, no home and no plan other than to try and be something more than what I was. I had a car, my clothes and hope. After moving to a new ...

Lech Walesa accused of hate speech after gay rights criticism

A national committee devoted to fighting hate speech and other crimes in Poland has filed a complaint with prosecutors in Gdansk accusing Lech Walesa of promoting a "propaganda of hate against a sexual minority", after the Nobel peace prize-winner said gay people had no right to a prominent role in politics. Walesa said in a television interview on Friday that he believed gay people had no right to sit on the front benches in parliament and, if there at all, should sit in the back "or even behind a wall". "They have to know that they are a minority and adjust to smaller things, and not rise to the greatest heights," he told the private broadcaster TVN ...
Plight of the bumblebee: Disappearance?
Post Date: 2013-03-03 10:46:23 by A K A Stone
WASHINGTON It's not just honey bees that are in trouble. The fuzzy American bumblebee seems to be disappearing in the Midwest. Two new studies in Thursday's journal Science conclude that wild bees like the American bumblebee are increasingly important in pollinating flowers and crops that provide us with food. And, at least in the Midwest, they seem to be dwindling in an alarming manner, possibly from disease and parasites. Wild bees are difficult to track, so scientists have had a hard time knowing what's happening to them. But because of one man in a small town in Illinois in the 1890s, researchers now have a better clue. RECOMMENDED: Fewer bees in US threaten almond ...
