Shona Banda Faces Decades in Prison Because Her Son Questioned Anti-Pot Propaganda
June 22, 2015
In Live Free or Die, a 2010 memoir recounting how cannabis oil saved her life, Shona Banda emphasizes the importance of "self-taught knowledge," acquired by constantly asking questions and "looking at all of the angles of any information given."
Her son may have learned that lesson too well. Had he been less inquisitive, less prone to question authority, he might still be living with his mother, and she might not be facing criminal charges that could send her to prison for decades. Banda, a 38-year-old massage therapist who appeared in criminal court for the first time last week, is free on a $50,000 bond while her case is pending.

Senate blocks Patriot Act extension
May 24, 2015
The Senate struggled to prevent an interruption in critical government surveillance programs early Saturday, rejecting both a House-passed bill and a short-term extension of the USA Patriot Act.
The White House has pressured the Senate to back the House bill, which would end the National Security Agency's bulk collection of domestic phone records. Instead, the records would remain with telephone companies subject to a case-by-case review. The vote was 57-42, short of the 60-vote threshold to move ahead.

Doctors cover up vaccine damage after killing infant with 8 simultaneous vaccinations
May 11, 2015
It must have been shame that drove doctors at a California hospital to hide the body of an infant who had suddenly died after receiving eight simultaneous vaccinations. The parents were never allowed to see the body of their son before he was cremated.
Even after a year and four months had gone by, the official autopsy had not been revealed. Their son, Matthew, had been given DTaP, IPV, Hib, PCV, Hep B and Hep A in three shots, one in the right arm and two in the left leg, just a day before his sudden death.
All Ducks in a Row'..... Be Alarmed!!!
March 21, 2015
When you see the number of high ranking military officials who have been fired or just let go it IS SCARY! When I checked out the internet to see how many current Muslims are in the White House it covered 26 pages.
Most people ARE COMPLETELY UNAWARE of what is happening to our country!!! The picture below is of the five first line US nuclear carriers docked together in one place. Just like Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. These carriers were all pulled out from the MIDDLE EAST and the Afghanistan support role leaving our land forces naked and exposed without the air support needed to carry out their missions!

Gov. Jerry Brown, who preserved religious exemptions to state vaccination requirements in 2012, on Wednesday appeared open to legislation that would eliminate all but medical waivers.
The governor's new flexibility highlighted a growing momentum toward limiting vaccination exemptions partly blamed for the state's worst outbreak of measles since 2000 and flare-ups of whooping cough and other preventable illnesses.
Prominent Chefs Serve Up a Message to Congress: Label GMOs
December 2, 2014
More than 700 chefs - including Tom Colicchio, José Andrés, Art Smith and Sam Talbot - are urging members of Congress to support legislation to mandate labeling of genetically modified foods and to oppose efforts to block state GMO labeling laws.
"This is about transparency in the marketplace and preventing consumer deception," agreed Colin O'Neil, director of government affairs at the Center for Food Safety. "Consumers can only make informed decisions when they are given the information to do so. We require labels on everything from juice from concentrate to foods that have been irradiated; why should genetic engineering be any different?"
Koch-Tied Group Tries to Trick Stoners Into Voting for Wisconsin Libertarian
November 4, 2014
Libertarian Robert Burke tries to distance himself from the ads and the Kochs.
Mary Burke supports medical marijuana (which AFF does not mention) but has not called for its full legalization. Walker opposes marijuana for medical or recreational uses, repeating the discredited claim that pot is a "gateway drug," and in recent months has called for drug testing for public aid recipients.
