DA Vows to Prosecute TSA Agents Who Touch Travelers Inappropriately

http://www.foxnews.com

The public outcry over the government's new pat-downs gained momentum Wednesday, as a California district attorney vowed to prosecute any complaints of inappropriate touching by airport security screeners and a U.S. congressman called for screeners to receive improved training.

City Regulatory Incoherence Threatens to Shut Down Successful Business

http://chicagoist.com

Logan Square Kitchen has had a tough first year. Despite their immense success, the support of their alderman and lots of love from the Chicago food press, the shared-kitchen concept simply doesn't fit in with current Chicago zoning laws, which can't seem to decide whether the spot is a shop, a restaurant or a production space.

National Opt Out Day to coincide with returning Hajj pilgrims

http://www.examiner.com

Liberty activists are organizing National Opt Out Day for Wednesday, November 24, asking all travelers to opt out of the body scanner and undergo the pat down in full public view, so that others in line can see how invasive it is.

Here’s where it gets interesting.

In addition to the unusually high volume of travel for the Thanksgiving Holiday, some 12,000 American Muslims are expected to be returning from Mecca anywhere between the 20th and 28th. On a bell curve, the bulk of them will be arriving on the 24th.

A perfect Storm.

New High of 46% of Americans Support Legalizing Marijuana

http://links.visibli.com

While California's marijuana ballot initiative is garnering a lot of attention this election cycle, Gallup finds that nationally, a new high of 46% of Americans are in favor of legalizing use of the drug, and a new low of 50% are opposed. The increase in support this year from 44% in 2009 is not statistically significant, but is a continuation of the upward trend seen since 2000.

There are vital health ingredients that we need but can’t get enough of like Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Iodine. Then, there are the harmful elements pushed upon us by the State, which we should not be getting at all, like fluoride which causes brain disorders, vaccines which cause autism and statins which inhibit healthy cells. Dr. Miller keeps close watch on government-enslaved doctors and the lying propaganda of the pill-pushers.
