On this day in 1941, Charles Lindbergh suggests the US negotiate a neutrality pact with Hitler. Also on this day in 1957, the first Frisbees are produced — and my pups thank Heaven each day for it.

State reps move to de-gerrymander Oconee county. The effort to carve off some precincts to add to Clarke’s total was intrusive politics at its grubbiest and the gopers didn’t even get to keep McKillip.

Obama’s comment on purported voting problems:
“I think all of us share the belief that, regardless of party affiliation, that our democracy demands that our citizens can participate in a smooth and effective way,” the president told reporters before meeting with the commission. “I called on Congress to work with us, but I also thought that it was important for us to have a bipartisan, independent panel that could actually dig into the facts and try to determine what can we do to improve this situation.”

A comment was posted concerning some “improvements” Obama would like to see:
Less difficult to vote more than once,
Easier for dead people to vote,
Unrestricted illegal alien voting.

As for the medical weed thing…dont forget that the chemical in weed that helps severely epileptic kids is not the THC and many growers can grow plants that are in fact low in thc and high in the other chemical that seems to help (cant remember what its called and dont feel like looking it up just now). If it helps even one severely disabled child live a normal happy life, who cares if people smoke a blunt in the privacy of their own home.

Cannabidiol would be the compound you are speaking of.

I just read the “obesity study”…what a load of crap…so if you’re fat when you get pregnant (I say that in the collective sense being 2 people) you will have fat kids??? Then why are we suddenly as a population becoming obese? That study would imply that we were proceeded by a whole bunch of fat people…but then again…it was done in Australia…they dont have that many fat people there (at least when I was there…snark intended)
