and it just took them how mnay months too come up with this info. Why weren't the others arrested right after the raid if evidence was found linking them too all this. Sounds like alot of ass covering too me. They must be taking lessons from Georgias' police trainers.
I used to be against legalizing pot, but seeing all the crazy police thugs acting as assassination squads against citizens, and the horrible prison system guards, I have to agree with Pat Robertson. Time to legalize it.
And way past time to stop the IDF type training of our cops. You can't even call the police for minor things anymore without getting the assassination squad in full attack mode. It's disgusting that we as citizens are putting up with it.
[An Nahar] Saudi Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz, the kingdom's veteran internal security czar, arrived in the U.S. city of Cleveland on Friday for scheduled medical tests, the royal palace announced in Riyadh.
"The crown prince, (who is also) deputy prime minister and interior minister, arrived in Cleveland from Morocco for medical examinations that had been previously scheduled," the palace said in a brief statement carried by the official SPA news agency.
It did not elaborate on what the tests were for.
Prince Nayef -- who has served as interior minister for nearly four decades and led the kingdom's post-September 11, 2001 crackdown on al-Qaeda -- was named crown prince in October last year at the age of 78, following the death of his brother, Prince Sultan.
[An Nahar] Saudi authorities have ordered a probe after more than 50 women students were hurt when security forces dispersed a campus protest this week, media and a local official said on Friday.
Teach 'em to think and they start getting ideas.
On Wednesday members of the inquisitors religious police and law enforcement officers used water cannons to break up a sit-in by women students at the Abha University in the south of Soddy Arabia, the Sebaq news website reported.
The students had staged a sit-in to protest against what they said was a pile-up or rubbish on the campus and a break down in hygienic conditions, Sebaq said.
The inquisitors religious police, in a statement carried by the Al-Watan newspaper, confirmed that it had intervened at the university but denied that its men had attacked the women.
The university meanwhile issued a statement saying it had asked police to intervene on Wednesday after "female students gathered on the campus and began shouting in a way that contradicts" campus regulations.
It also accused one of the students' parents of having triggered the problem by sacking a refuse collectors, which caused the rubbish to pile up.
The sexes are strictly segregated outside the home in ultra-conservative Soddy Arabia.
Prince Faisal bin Khaled, emir of the Assir region where Abha University is located, has ordered an investigation into the incident, media reported.
[An Nahar] Employment in Canada was mostly unchanged in February, but a decline in the number of people looking for work pushed the jobless rate down slightly to 7.4 percent, a government agency said Friday.
Analysts had predicted that 15,000 new jobs would be created in the month, while the unemployment rate would remain at the previous month's level of 7.6 percent.
But employment declined in retail and wholesale trade; transportation and warehousing; health care and social assistance; and public administration, Statistics Canada announced.
Those declines were offset by increases in finance, insurance, real estate and leasing; educational services; and business, building and other support services, the agency said.
Regionally, only New Brunswick province in easternmost Canada saw a notable decline in jobs. Elsewhere job numbers were flat.
Thanks for the Abbott and Costello! Sitting in Western Canada, I think its our discussion with the East in a nutshell.
If you look at the stats, actually Western Canada (from Manitoba west) is sitting around 5.5% unemploynent.-With Alberta around 4.9%.Sounds good? - Let me add this. The ONLY country in all of the Americas with a triple A rating is Canada. Number of Banks that went under due to the resession - none and not one was "stimulated". Housing slowed but did not crash. - All this with our largest trading partner (the USA at over 75%)going through a sh##storm. More interesting point -Iceland is considering adopting, not the Euro, not the US dollar, but the Canadian Dollar.
Yep we have some problems, no country is perfect, but I would rather have ours. Funny how in the USA election year,NOONE is saying - you know --how did Canada do it? Simple - we slashed waste, cut the civil service and raised taxes to the painpoint - but it put us back again in the black for about 10 years until the 08 resession, but we should be in the black again in 2 years.
Without us, US oil would be at 10$ a gallon, let anong 4 bucks. Oh yes -we have been paying 5$ for years -and we drill the stuff. Be glad we are your neighbours. Actually I am pretty glad you are ours.
Of course they aren't saying anything about it, Northern Cousin -- the Democrats don't want to be sensible about spending. And while the Republicans do, since most Americans don't know the wonderful things PM Harper's government has done, citing the example doesn't advance the discussion.
But we do appreciate you being our neighbour, my dear. Mexicos on both sides would be entirely too much of a good thing. ;-)
The imbroglio over Rush Limbaugh, his unfortunate remarks about a student activist, and his advertisers took a bizarre turn when one advertiser who publicly denounced Limbaugh last week and pulled its ads, begged to be taken back.
The advertiser in question is Sleep Train, a mattress company. According to the Los Angeles Times, Limbaugh has turned down its request to be reinstated as a voiced advertiser, which involved the host himself endorsing the company. The reason was that Sleep Train's action had angered Limbaugh's many millions of listeners so the show could not in good conscience accept the company back.
Meanwhile, a new startup by conservative media personality Michelle Malkin, Twitchy.com, has announced that it is a new advertiser on the Rush Limbaugh program. Twitchy.com is a service that groups messages on Twitter by subject. The buying of ad space on the radio talk show is as much a political statement in support of Limbaugh as it is a play to advertise for more subscribers.
The dust up over Sleep Train, along with the blowback suffered by Carbonite over that company's public denunciation of Limbaugh, demonstrates that the iconic radio talk show host is dealing from a position of strength in the campaign to deprive him of advertisers. One tends to prosper when one advertises on Limbaugh's show. But cross him, and one will suffer.
The one overwhelming fact is that Limbaugh commands many millions of listeners. There is no evidence that any of them have stopped listening because of the kerfuffle with Sandra Fluke. Indeed, one suspects that Limbaugh has gained listeners, curious about what the fuss is all about. As long as the show maintains its listener base, it does not matter if any advertisers bail on Limbaugh for political reasons. There will always be others who will want to take their place, because it is good business to advertise on the most listened to radio talk show on the planet.
The situation demonstrates the power of the marketplace over politically inspired efforts to drive an iconic conservative radio voice off the air. Once again Limbaugh has defeated his enemies and has humbled them into the dust.
Citrix and Carbonite who dropped advertising with the Rush are heavily used by the Feds. I would bet the Obama regime threatened to stop business with these two if they didn't stop advertising with Rush. The Carbonite stock value plummeted in the private sector immediately.
QUESTION: I have seen the Windows Remote PC (free with Windows 7 and XP) used like a thin client from any network PC to a Network server just like Citrix. Why is Citrix still in business then?

Media set up back fired. There will be more attempts. They will never learn. Shows how stong Tea Party really is. Basic Americans wanting whats best for all people. Yes, I see more of a connection between Rush and the Tea Party conservatism than Republicans. Democratic party has been hijacked by these elites. Should conservatism begin to grow in the Democratic party the regresive left will lose their lease. Then it will be time to bring in a good bug man.
The reason Obama talks looking up is to give the impression he is above us all. That he is taller than he actually is.
Raj, I believe "commands" here is meant in the same sense as "commanding their attention" or "having command of the English language."
Bias is identifying pundits with conservative political views as "conservative media personality Joe Blow," while identifying pundits with leftist political views as "media personality Joe Blow." As if leftist/liberal is normal, right, and good, and thus can be omitted, while deviations from it must be pointed out.
When they offer up ending military welfare to first world countries in Europe and Asia, let me know. It took a volcano to finally get the Air Force out of the 'strategically vital' airfield in the Philippines. Somehow we've survived without that critical strategic asset. The brass has dragged its feet like that for generations.
