Video: So What Happens AFTER You Refuse a Police Search?




 Flex Your Rights has been working for many years now to educate everyone we can about the importance of refusing police searches and otherwise knowing and asserting your constitutional rights when confronted by police. Unfortunately, even if you handle a police encounter perfectly, things can still get pretty ugly.

Monsanto, Dow and Genetically Modified Trouble


Wednesday, 09 May 2012 12:46By Jim Hightower, Truthout …

clip_image002Thanks to the blessings of nature and good farmers, you and I can enjoy such scrumptious delights as fresh corn-on-the-cob, popcorn and many other variations of this truly great grain. And now, thanks to Dow Chemical and federal regulators, we can look forward to "Agent Orange Corn." The chemical giant is in line to gain approval for putting a genetically altered corn seed on the market that will produce corn plants that won’t die when doused with high levels of 2,4-D.

This potent pesticide was an ingredient in Dow’s notorious Agent Orange defoliant, which did such extensive and horrific damage to soldiers and civilians in the Vietnam War. However, the corporation and the feds claim that 2,4-D was not the deadliest ingredient of the killer defoliant and has not yet been proven to cause cancer in humans, so they’re pressing ahead to let this corporate-constructed seed be planted across America.

Dow now sells 2,4-D to help kill various weeds, but the herbicide is so strong that it also kills nature’s own version of corn plants. Thus, Dow’s genetic engineers went into the corporate lab and manufactured a new corn that’s immune to the weed-killer. This would let the chemical maker profit from selling the patented seed, plus enjoying a huge increase in sales of its 2,4-D herbicide. How happy for Dow! Not so happy, though, for consumers worried about the untested long-term health consequences of the altered corn and the carcinogenic possibilities of ingesting more 2,4- D. Also, when sprayed, this herbicide can vaporize and spread for miles, killing crops that are not immune, poisoning the surrounding environment, and endangering the health of farmers and townspeople throughout the area.

Dow is hardly alone in pursuing its happiness at the expense of others. Indeed, rather than finding ways to cooperate with the natural world, America’s agribusiness giants generally reach for the quick, high-tech fix in a futile effort to overpower nature.

Their attitude is that if brute force isn’t working, they’re probably not using enough of it.

Monsanto, for example, has banked a fortune by selling a corn seed that it genetically manipulated to produce corn plants that won’t die when sprayed with a toxic weed-killer called "Roundup." Not coincidentally, Monsanto also happens to be the maker of Roundup, so it has profited from the seed and from the surge in Roundup sales that the seed generated.

Slick. …  But Mother Nature, damn her, has rebelled. So much of Monsanto’s poison was spread across America in the past decade that weeds naturally and rather rapidly developed a resistance to it. As a Dow Chemical agronomist put it, "The real need here is to diversify our weed management systems." Exactly right! We need non-chemical, non-GMO, sustainable systems that work with nature.

But, no, the Dow man didn’t mean that at all. He was calling for more brute force in the form of his corporation’s altered corn seed — the one that can withstand being doused with Dow’s super-potent 2,4-D weedkiller. Use this, he promises, and this time nature will surely be defeated.

Wrong. Nature doesn’t quit. The weeds will keep evolving and will adapt to Dow’s high-tech fix, too. By pushing the same old thing relentlessly, says an independent crop scientist, agribusiness interests "ratchet up (America’s) dependence on the use of herbicides, which is very much a treadmill." So much unhappiness for so many just to make one corporation happy by getting much richer at our expense.

It’s time to start listening to the weeds — and cooperating with Mother Nature. To advance this common sense approach, a national coalition is backing a California "Right to Know" initiative requiring GMO-altered foods to be labeled. To help, go to Organic Consumers Association at, and get involved in the coalition’s Money Bomb Monsanto Campaign

Why Are Student Loan Interest Rates Set to Double? Thank These Lobbyists Who Helped Kill the Bill Yesterday


Wednesday, 09 May 2012 12:39By Lee Fang, Republic Report

On Tuesday afternoon, Senate Republicans blocked a measure that would have prevented a big hike for student loan interest rates. The legislation would have kept “subsidized Stafford loans at 3.4 percent for an additional year, rather than doubling automatically for new loans starting July 1.”

While the vote yesterday was certainly a partisan battle, a closer look at the interest groups driving the roll call vote explains the greater powers at play. Democrats wanted to pay for the student loan support by closing a tax loophole that even the late Robert Novak and the Wall Street Journal lamented as one the most egregious problems in the tax code. Essentially, wealthy individuals and large corporations often file using ‘subchapter S’ companies to dodge paying employment taxes. With Republicans refusing to close this loophole, student loan interest rates are set to double.

clip_image003Republicans blocked the student loan interest rate bill simply because big businesses and campaign contributors lobbied aggressively against closing the loophole. The National Journal published a letter from a number of Beltway lobbying groups — among them, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which represents many multinational corporations, and the American Banking Association — protesting the measure. These lobbying groups have wide sway over both parties, but particularly the GOP. For a full list of the corporate lobbying groups that are ensuring that students pay more for college …

Pathetic Russell Pearce plays the victim in wake of killing spree


Posted: 04 May 2012 06:03 AM PDT …Posted by AzBlueMeanie:

The Arizona Republic published a statement from disgraced former Sen. Russell Pearce on Thursday in response to the killing spree by his friend and fanboy J.T. Ready. Gilbert mass shooting: Former Arizona Sen. Russell Pearce’s statement.

This WATB used this tragedy to play the victim of "editors and producers all over town making a concerted effort to make the story about a politician whose conservative politics they disagree with."   The real reason is Russell Pearce’s long and close personal relationship with J.T. Ready that has been well documented by the Phoenix New Times over the years, and is well summarized in this report from the Rachel Maddow Show (video below the fold).

Maddow’s guest is Arizona Republic columnist E.J. Montini, who wrote this post yesterday. EJMontini – Pearce’s lame J.T. Ready lament:

Former Senate President and de facto governor Russell Pearce, dethroned in a recall, is angry with the news media for contacting him in the aftermath of the murder/suicide carried out by neo-Nazi Pearce supporter J.T. Ready.

In a statement released by Pearce, he says, “In the past several years the local media has worked hard to try to tie me to the JT Ready that preached hate, and that is nothing more than a lie.”

Is it?  … Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, editor of its Intelligence Report and Hatewatch blog calls Pearce’s claim an “utter crock.”

That’s putting it nicely.

If you want an understanding of just how whining and self-centered Pearce can be, even in the face of such a horrific tragedy, read his full, lame lament here.

Then read a blog about Pearce by Potok here.

Or you can watch this video featuring Pearce and Ready.

Pearce, well, he’s pathetic.
