The One Percent - Entire Documentary

This 80-minute documentary focuses on the growing "wealth gap" in America, as seen through the eyes of filmmaker Jamie Johnson, a 27-year-old heir to the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical fortune. Johnson, who cut his film teeth at NYU and made the Emmy®-nominated 2003 HBO documentary Born Rich, here sets his sights on exploring the political, moral and emotional rationale that enables a tiny percentage of Americans - the one percent - to control nearly half the wealth of the entire United States. The film Includes interviews with Nicole Buffett, Bill Gates Sr., Adnan Khashoggi, Milton Friedman, Robert Reich, Ralph Nader and other luminaries.

Felony Murder Charges - Father Forgot Son in Car

Had he accidentally shot the boy - he would never have been arrested and charged.


Father Charged With Felony Murder in Son's Heat-Stroke Vehicle Death

A Georgia father has been charged with felony murder in the death of his 22-month-old son after the boy was left inside a mini-SUV for hours on a sweltering day.

The man’s family claims it was an honest and tragic mistake. But police disagree – and Justin Ross Harris, 33, now faces heightened charges in Cooper’s heat stroke death, a case that has drawn outrage from people who believe the man has already suffered enough.

Harris buckled his son Cooper into his car seat Wednesday before heading to his job as a Web developer at a Home Depot corporate office near Atlanta. On the way, Harris was supposed to drop off his son at daycare.

He never did.

My Throat Is On Fire - RoundUp

The house next door has been a rental for some years now and the lawn is a effing mess. Dandelions and other weeds blanket both the front and back yards.

I asked the new owners what they were planning to do and to let me know if chemicals were part of the plan, they assured me it was not. Two days later I see them spraying and was told "It's only RoundUp"!

My throat is burning, my inner ears are burning.

Called poison control to find out how to flush this shit out of me. She said because my ears were burning I should shower and inhale hot steam. Keep drinking water and stay indoors with all the windows closed.

This isn't over, there's so many weeds, I bet they do it several more times.

Feeling much better 7 hours later but still in window lock-down.

Has anyone ever tried Vinegar for killing weeds and if so, did it work.


Keep Up The War Talk Gov.

they are always touting what "the American people" want.

We don't want another war in the ME

Sharp Drop in Homicides in Denver So Far This Year

The number of Denver homicides in the first three months of this year fell sharply compared with the same period last year, city officials said Friday.

Eight homicides have been reported so far during the first quarter, according to the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner. That compares with 14 in the first quarter of 2013, representing a 43 percent drop.

Last year was the highest first-quarter total dating to 2009.

The lowest number of first-quarter homicides in the past five years was six, which was in 2009.

The number of homicides typically rises in summer months and during the winter holidays.

His Wife Worked For RW Think Tank & Newt Gingrich

A well connected son of a state politician is running in a house district primary - His new bride spent her post college years working for AEI and Newt Gingrich. Newt credits glowingly in his books and she co-wrote a handful of articles articulating Newt's greedy icky theories - all of which made me hurl.

He claims she was young... but not so much when she went back and did some stuff for Newt's 2012 POTUS run. .

We're not supposed to speak of it either.
