I'm sorry but she doesn't even look human. She looks like a bad rendering of a human being. She's another 1%er and I expect her to get all slutty for the Koch brothers' money.

quote: “[By] putting reservoirs to hold all that coal bed methane waste water all over the landscape by the thousands, [that] creates wonderful breeding habitat for mosquitos. Which coincidentally carries the West Nile virus,” Molvar says. “And in many parts of the Powder River Basin, you had major West Nile outbreaks that mowed down the sage grouse.”

Nepal is to decide whether to re-open the route up Mount Everest to minimise the impact on the tourism industry, but the move is potentially controversial, the BBC's Richard Galpin reports.

Truth in this, considering the stats say more whites do drugs, and are far less likely to be arrested for them...

(a quote from a different article that discusses drug use by race:
Nearly 20 percent of whites have used cocaine, compared with 10 percent of blacks and Latinos, according to a 2011 survey from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration -- the most recent data available.

Higher percentages of whites have also tried hallucinogens, marijuana, pain relievers like OxyContin, and stimulants like methamphetamine, according to the survey. Crack is more popular among blacks than whites, but not by much.

Still, blacks are arrested for drug possession more than three times as often as whites, according to a 2009 report from the advocacy group Human Rights Watch.

Of the 225,242 people who were serving time in state prisons for drug offenses in 2011, blacks made up 45 percent and whites comprised just 30 percent, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

“The war on drugs has been a war on black people suspected of drugs,” Billy Murphy, Jr. said.
