Today we take a close look at a confusing incident in California, as K9 officer Joe Avila was found with five points of marijuana that should be in the evidence lock-up. Local authorities are not filing charges, preferring to put officer Avila on paid administrative leave. The problem is, this double standard for police officers is a significant part of what's causing intense frustration with law enforcement across the country. We compare the insanely light slap on the wrist he received with other insanely disproportionate sentences for nonviolent marijuana offenders....

Hi again ATS. This one is going to be short and to the point because it's late and my mind is too weary to try and fit the pieces together right now. But I still felt like it was worth adding this piece to the puzzle. Many of us became familiar with Norse ( IPViking ) during the DDoS issues a week or two back.

Its that time of year again - which makes this a current event - and as I've done this every year I've been on staff, it seems it has become something of a tradition. I'm going to be upfront and say that 2014 has been both the best year, and the worst year for me in a long while....

Not long ago, I saw a post here on the Brietbart article "Sexodus". The article described how men are opting out of marriage in droves and the article attempted to explain why. Before I get into the nuts and bolts, read and focus on this next part; divorce rates are NOT at an all time high. They have hovered around 50% since the 1950s....

Are you who you seem to be in the life you are living? Or could it be possible that you are one of many beings living in time with the higher self being the source of all these "beings"? We are not a meat suit long term, that is clear. But if we aren't that, then what are we? And for how long?
