On Council Duo Suffocates Plastic-Bag Ban

9-11 was a corporate take over.
And unless the CIA guys in charge of 9-11 were Muslim, Muslims are not to blame.
Yes, there are Muslims, and lots of other people, around the world who hate America. But, 9-11 was not a terrorist attack done by a dozen Saudi muslims from the other side of the world and a guy called Osama sitting in a cave with a shortwave radio.
Two companies called America and Saudi made a business decision to gain control of their most cherish asset, energy (oil/nat gas) from their top two competitors, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Calling 9-11 a grand recruiting scheme of Osama is mad. Well before 9-11 Osama had no recruitment problems.
Who ever was flying the planes, the control of the planes was directly related to the benefit of the action, and there is no bigger benefactor from 9-11 than the US interest in energy resources.
Seven years in Iraq, billions in equipment and training, and no victory is like the Green Bay Packers showing up at a junior varsity's football field on a Friday night and ending four quarters of play in a tie game. Impossible.
Because it's not a war against terrorism. It's a resource war, based on one simple unavoidable fact: Peak Oil.
Unfortunately, Muslim Americans and Muslims across the world get scapegoated and must defend themselves from this charade.

Stop the hate. Go pedal. For all those who b***** about cyclist running lights etc, live in any other town in the US and it's 100x worse with 99% few riders. Instead of complaining about cyclists, get on a bike and pedal. 20+ years of daily addiction to the saddle and never once have a finished a ride with anything less than a massive sunshine smile for the beauty of the world. - AB from SB (stuck in China and itching for my SpecEpic) www.andrewbaker77.com

Curious what you would think if a group of people, unknown, began assassinating gang members while they were selling drugs. (Not just SB, LA etc) Cleaning the streets with sniper rifles. All comments welcome. - AB in SB

Santa Babara is a great place, but America sux. In nearly any other country, she would be patched up without gutting her financially. -AB www.andrewbaker77.com

I have absolutely rocketed through there on the rig, and just want to say MONSTER THANKS for going to the press with this information.
As for all the those here who say your lawsuit is wrong, I say American health care is wrong. Go for it! The government system supports corporations because the government IS a corporation.
Health care is a human right.
In so so so many other countries, your injury would be fixed without injuring your finances.
If they, government, aren't willing to realize that human right, find another means to make it happen. -AB www.andrewbaker77.com

Binky Nothing is more oppressive in society than gangs. America, gangs everywhere, all fueled by the drug trade. In S'pore, zero gangs, because there are nearly zero drugs. Death to traffickers works. And for the addicts, instead of jail where they become worse, required rehab. -AB
PS: "An oppressive, (basically) one Party, unicameral system of authoritarianism is a poor example for the US..." It is the US. Dems and Repubs are the same Party, the Party for corporate greed.
