Crossing Borders in Templar Territory - by El Enemigo Común
By Simón Sedillo Photos: Juan José Estrada Serafín We left a municipality in Michoacan, which is often confused in the mainstream media as part of the Tierra Caliente region, but is actually Sierra. We hear that there is going to be a negotiation with the state and federal government and autonomous self-defense groups in order to accord the legalization of the self-defense groups. We head to Tepacaltepec where the meeting is to be held. The scene is surreal to say the least, but so is ...

Por Simón Sedillo Fotos: Juan José Estrada Serafín Atrás queda una municipalidad de Michoacán que los medios masivos equivocan al ubicar en Tierra Caliente, en realidad nos encontramos en la Sierra Madre Sur Occidental. Nos avisan que hay una negociación entre el gobierno federal y estatal, y los grupos de autodefensa. Tomamos rumbo a Tepalcatepec, donde la reunión tendrá lugar. La escena es surreal, pero esto ya no nos sorprende porque todo en Michoacán es surreal estos días. ...

This is a Greco-Roman nation, gathered in a Hodenosaunee longhouse. As they wrap themselves in the Constitution they mean to shred, that is the self-evident Truth the Tea/GOP Party ultimately cannot face. Our legal godfathers---the ones Glenn Beck loves to conjure---were Deistic liberal humanists whose core beliefs he hates. (http://www.analhde.com) They dumped that tea because they despised the corporation that owned it and the idea of empire it (and today's corporate-military right...

Federal Prohibition Against Legalized Medical Cannabis Enables Robbery, Kidnapping - by Another Angry Patient
The kidnapping, torture and castration of a local medical cannabis dispensary owner plays into the hands of the federal prohibition against medical cannabis and prevents the voters of states like CA and CO from being able to put their votes for legalization into practice. By creating a hostile business climate and forcing dispensary owners to deal in cash the federal government directly enables these sorts of kidnappings and robberies. Yet big banks continue to launder drug cartel money? Hypo...
