Antiboycott Laws:

During the mid-1970's the United States adopted two laws that seek to counteract the participation of U.S. citizens in other nation's economic boycotts or embargoes. These "antiboycott" laws are the 1977 amendments to the Export Administration Act (EAA) and the Ribicoff Amendment to the 1976 Tax Reform Act (TRA).


Smallest living organism is a very big discovery

By Robert Cooke

May 4 2002

The first member of a new family of ultra-tiny microbes, smaller than known bacteria, was recently captured in scalding-hot water jetting up through the sea floor near Iceland, scientists said. It is unlike any other creature known.

What the German research team is calling "a new, nano-sized hyperthermophilic archaeon" is tinier than the smallest known living organisms, mycoplasma.

Still, it is larger than those semi-living things, the viruses. So it seems to represent a class of its own.

This is wonderful news, indeed!

The dairy industry once promoted and supported sexual acts between teachers and students.

When sex occurs between high school teachers and underage students, that is defined by every state in America as statutory rape. Teachers are now serving jail time for their amorous and predatory acts of love.

It seems that the dairy industry has quietly reversed their support of relationships in which young students are attracted to older men and women.


A friend writes: More Israeli History

I don't think either side is perfect in this. Show me any country that's got a perfect record, anywhere in history. But go back to the history for a minute.

The U.S. Government Is the Biggest Drug Dealer in the World!

While the U.S. federal government has been waging a phony and hypocritical "war on drugs" as an easy way to increase repression in inner cities and confiscate millions of dollars in private assets through unconstitutional forfeiture laws in order to fund its burgeoning police state, it has also been an active participant in the illegal drug trade, using public resources to bring heroin and cocaine into American inner cities at least since the 1960's.

Sound like paranoia?


Former British Drug Policy Head Says Legalize it All

Former cabinet minister Mo Mowlam, who ran Prime Minister Tony Blair's drug policy until less than a year ago, has called for the legalization of all drugs. She said legalizing and taxing the drug trade was the only solution in an interview with the London newspaper the Independent on Sunday. During her tenure as the Labour government's minister responsible for drug policy, she sparred repeatedly with other ministers and her boss over medical marijuana, cannabis decriminalization, and whether even to study the possible benefits of legalization and taxation.
