I looked.  Didn't see anything convincing.  

Now, I will admit I am biased because I've seen way too many lives wasted due to recreational usage, so I'm going to need something really concrete from from multiple trusted sources before I get on board with this.  I'm open to the possibility, but its going to take a lot more than a meme playing off of emotionalism to make me reconsider anything.

And since this has pretty much become a waste of time, you can have the final word.  Ta ta.

An intelligent analysis. It doesn't look to me like Iraq wants to stay together. I suspect it will end up as three separate states.
Paddy Ashdown: This is the start of a long conflict which could cross the entire Muslim world. The west’s strategy must accept the end of the old imperial borders

I think it's tragic that the special interest group the gun lobby, or whatever you want to call it, has been able to play upon the fears of the public, and mistrust of government in general, to push for the kind of universal, unfettered gun proliferation they desire. We can all see the tragic results of this policy in our society. More deadly examples every day.

I'd like if we were able to go back to the old days when we left our front doors open and screen doors unlatched. When neighbors knew everyone in the neighborhood by name and we never had to hunt for car keys because we always left them in the car. Sadly, we live in an era where evil awaits the innocent at inopportune moments. In my personal life, a gun has stopped my family and myself from suffering serious harm or death on three separate occasions. I'm not an NRA member and I am saddened to see a society that lives in the insanity of the next mental wacko or the criminal element. I would gladly give up my guns if I felt certain that it would mean a solidified peace insured safety. The reality is - we'll never see those old days again. 

Warren Burger's assessment of the 2nd Amendment never arose in any case before him. His opinion, from a January 1990 issue of Parade magazine, is one of many in the debate on the 2nd Amendment's meaning. The debate was settled in 2010. It is an individual right. The NRA had nothing to do with the SCOTUS decision. See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution

"The question of a collective right versus an individual right was progressively resolved with the Fifth Circuit ruling in United States v. Emerson (2001), along with the Supreme Court's rulings in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), and McDonald v. Chicago (2010). These rulings upheld the individual rights model when interpreting the Second Amendment. In Heller, the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual right.[151] Although the Second Amendment is the only Constitutional amendment with a prefatory clause, such constructions were widely used elsewhere.[152]"

Nice video, but I can't get my Chromebook to install Skype. Or should I say, I tried and thought I had it, yesterday. All looked good except all that came up was a white screen with the Android logo on it. as I have seen in some of these similar videos. I tried them all. However, it never "flowered" into actual Skype. So I deleted it. Hmmm. Then tried again today, to the letter. Everything. I am getting pretty good at almost getting it. Close but no cigar. Twerk builds it.. using the 4.9 version of the Skype apk. I try to save it in extensions. Looks like it might, but then I open the browser, go to more tools, load unpacked extensions... and I do see com.skype.raider 4.9, etc, etc... but it is "grayed out". I open each and every other folder one by one to try to find it.. no good. I get a message that says Error Loading Extension. Manifest file is missing or unreadable. I have gone over everything I can think of, several times. Very frustrating. Any ideas-?

Note to those that don't know......
HEMP IS NOT MARIJUANA!!
The first hemp laws in America were passed in 1619 and they were 'must grow' laws. If you were a farmer living in America and you didn't grow hemp, you would be jailed or kicked out of the country as a non patriot.
These first laws were put in place by the Colonist Government of Great Britain. In 1773 and again in 1776, ( the year the Declaration of Independence was signed).  American made their own must grow laws.
At that time, it was one of the most widely used plants in the world.  Fact - Cannabis hemp was legal tender (money) in most of  America from 1631 until the early 1800s.
Thomas Jefferson risked his life bring  hemp seeds to America from overseas.
Benjamin Franklin, started the first paper mill in America and all of the paper was made out of hemp.
Wars were fought over hemp and without it, America never would have won the Revolutionary war.
In the 1920's during alcohol prohibition, almost every newspaper in the country was running ads for smoking hemp and hash ( a hemp by product ) the only legal high left. The fact is, hemp was in 80% of all human medicines when it was made illegal. 
NO, no one has ever died from smoking hemp. These facts and many more, can be found in the book, 'The Emperor Wears No Clothes" By Jack Herer, a book written about America hemp history along with the evidence to prove his research factual.
He is willing to pay anyone $100,000.00 to prove him wrong.
His homepage is www.jackherer.com

I had no idea so much graphite was needed in electric cars. And we aren't mining any here in the U.S....yet? Hmmm.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Tear apart an electric car's rechargeable battery and you'll find a mineral normally associated with No. 2 pencils.It's graphite.
