Re: “Noam Chomsky endorses ColoradoCare

It is great that Noam Chomsky has taken up the cause of ColoradoCare. He has spoken on many issues with supreme and impeccable logic as he has here. He is unimpressed by hyperbolic vitriole, exaggerations and outright misinformation that is the modus operandi of the Koch & insurance company funded "think tanks". Most of what they present are fraudulent arguments based on the hysterical sentiments of conservative talk show hosts, more concerned about ratings than fact.
PLEASE check their website at and be your own judge. See if Noam's appraisal is in fact serious, logical and sound. If you do, vote YES on Amendment 69!

Re: “The band that got away

As a teen from upstate NY in the early 70's I found an 8 track tape of their original recording and bought it out of curiosity. Been a diehard fan ever since. Saw them play whenever possible. I was never disappointed!

To this day Tasty is a fixture in my car's CD player.

Rat on.....

Re: “Hemp building material could help survive and prevent destruction

My Story . . . .
As a natural born skeptic, I spent countless time and energy researching all the available treatment options aside from what my oncologist recommended. I was DETERMINED to cure my cancer, and knew there was something out there after witnessing a number of people who not only survived, but thrived and went on to live fulfilling lives cancer-free. In addition to reading about Rick Simpson Oil, and watching the Run From the Cure video, I also spoke with people who had actually used the oil, and it was shocking to hear one after another how effective this medicine really was. I just couldn’t believe there was a cure out there and how wrong it was that this information is not being shared with the public!
Treatment Regimine:
I have a pretty big tolerance for marijuana, so I started off with a full grain of rice sized amount of oil instead of a half grain. I gradually increased the dosage every night until I reached a full gram each night. The standard protocol for Rick Simpson Oil is ingesting a total of 60 grams over the course of 2-3 months, but I had 70 grams in total for safe measure. I used the excess as a topical skin care treatment, attacking the visible brown spots on my face and neck.
3 months later, my cancer was in full remission. Within 4 months, I am cancer-free and officially received a clean bill of health from my doctors. What they don’t know is that the majority of my treatment was using the Rick Simpson Oil. I did use some of the medication they prescribed, but it was in combination with the oil.
I am elated I want to continue sharing with people who are experiencing what I went through that there is absolutely hope and a cure out there. They just need to be proactive and aggressive with treatment, not wait until it is too late. Get your medication at Phoenix Tears via Email: (
In addition to being an effective cancer fighter, there are some nice side effects that come from using the Rick Simpson oil, for instance, I no longer need to take any pain killers. Just one or two drops of the oil will ease the pain and help you sleep like a baby. Best of all, its natural . . . Thanks to all the staff at Amsterdam’s Garden who guided me throughout this journey. You guys are awesome!

Re: “Rage against the TPP

TPP & other Global Corporate Treaties/’Arrangements’

Protecting the ‘harmless’ citizens of US from Corporate ‘America’ using ‘trade’ arrangements to Sue the ‘harmless’ Americans by way stocks in Corporations of TPP, TTIP Global Corporate Associates’ is NOT ‘protectionist’. Will Trump Triumph & get the appreciation of the voters?

Is Clinton betting on TPP kick-back by way NON-RETURNING CONGRESSMEN.
NON-RETURNING CONGRESSMEN using LOBBYISTS to SECURE POST POLITICAL JOBS Have to PASS TPP, TTIP, et al with IMPUNITY, &/or, for Future ‘Considerations’? Constituents to Pay for LOBBYIST’s Treaties/’Arrangements’, or, What are Various Ways Voters can Prevail upon the Secret Relationship between the Execs. of Political Parties & Lobbyists and ‘Your’ Congressmen?

TPP, TTIP, et al; If the 'Agreements' are anything other than a schedule of reducing tariffs then it’s not about ‘Free’ Trade but ‘Enslaving’ Trade; Shifting Corporate Liabilities on to the ‘harmless’ citizens?

Not all Trade Deals are Good, or, Bad; but what are the Elements of a 'Very GOOD' Trade Deal.

TPP, CETA, TTIP, et al, Just in Time to protect Monsanto’s carcinogenic ‘Round Up’ Herbicide & other Toxic products & Foods; the Future of ‘Legal’ Poisoning of harmless Customers starts NOW. Taxes Increased as Gov’ts pass Lawsuit Costs to harmless citizens? Further Cuts to Gov’t. Services.

TPP & the other Global Corporate treaties/'arrangements': Global AGRI-CORPORATIONs/Lobbyists SWEAR that some farmers may benefit.

Do the other signatories of the global corporate treaties/’arrangements’ understand how corporate Canada is superseding gains by Native Canadians by continuing to avoid its liabilities via its information deprivation (eg. The W.A.D. Accord & The MERKEL {Chancellor of Germany} Letter) & trying to pass its liabilities on to its global corporate associates, their citizens and the citizens of Canada?

The ‘EMPIRE’* STRIKES BACK against Huge Indirect Taxes to pay for Secret Liabilities & Hidden Costs via Tribunal’s (‘Death-Star-Chamber) Punitive Penalties?
*the ‘harmless’ citizens of the Anti-Global Corporate Economy
Stockholders sue their neighbors & in-laws via their TPP, TTIP, CETA, et al, Global Corporate associates.

TPP & Japan, et al; ‘The Submission’ to The Supreme Court of Canada paves the way for Expanding & Improving the basis of the Yamada led ‘Sword & Shield’ Counter-attack Suit against the Japanese gov’t., Corporates America & Canada, or, their ‘harmless’ citizens, et al. TPP & other Global Corporate Treaties/’Arrangements’ signatory Gov’ts. in Conflict of Interest.

TPP & other Global Corporate Treaties/’Arrangements’ PREVENTING MULTI-BILLIONS of DOLLARS of LAWSUITS to be paid by the ‘harmless’ Voters/Taxpayers.
OPPOSITION to TPP, TTIP, CETA, et al, REDUCES FEAR; "the (EU) Commission’s fear is a multi-million euro lawsuit from industry”*

Why haven’t the Citizens of the Global Corporate economy been given enough info to balance the potential for Employment versus the amounts they will Certainty have to Pay for the Secret Liabilities & Hidden Costs of ‘Trade’ Tribunals’ Punitive Penalties (Indirect Tax), etc.?

Re: “Stop the damage, and free ride, from grazing of public lands

I commend Rep. Grijalva - at least he makes an attempt to DO something about this matter! But when is the public actually going to realize how corrupt the relationship between the BLM & these livestock producers is? The proof is there in this report and in many others. Its in the attitude of the lobbyists who push for more, more more! WWP has done so much to bring this to people's attention, but when are taxpayers going to wake up & see exactly how much WE are paying to allow these livestock CORPORATIONS to continue draining our public lands in order to feed their greed and profits? In the meantime, our wild horses & burros, the wolves, the bears, the mountain lions - all predators are being destroyed in order for these corporations to get every last dollar out of our public lands - OUR public lands!

Re: “Local farmers market doubles food stamps — how do they do it and why is it rare?

Farmers markets have long been geared toward white people with money (Whole Foods shoppers, Prius drivers, mate drinkers, yoga mat toters, etc.)

Are you kidding me? Nat, your bias and stereotypes are showing. This isn't a news article, it's an opinion piece. There's a huge difference in case you hadn't noticed. Shame on you.
