Graham’s strategy-driven klieg-light approach (cle...

The Zombie Drug: are bath salts really the threat we're lead to believe? - by Avan Curran
Media outlets, politicians, and the public seem in consensus that the new designer drugs known as "Bath Salts" are dangerous substances that warrant new legislation.

The murder of Real IRA leader Alan Ryan by Dublin's drug cartel is a tragedy as Alan stood up for the oppressed and demanded a community tax from the drug gangs.

From my perspective Alan Ryan is the true martyr in the "war on drugs" who was killed for standing up to bully drug gangs. God bless Alan Ryan for his courage against evil!!

As Jimmy Kimmel said when he had Barack Obama on as a guest, "Don't you know that potheads vote?"
