mudwerks: Last summer, we wrote about how the National Jazz Museum had acquired a massive collection of old jazz recordings from the 1930s that most didn’t even know existed, and how it was being blocked due to copyright. The ABA Journal has now done a more in-depth article about the collection, the copyright issues and the wider problems this represents. It’s a really excellent and complete...

Big Pharma Ready to Take Over Medical Marijuana
Well, well, well, lookie here. Isn’t this interesting timing? I wonder how long this little coup has been in the works? This would go a long way to explaining the federal government’s unwillingness to make marijuana legal for the masses to grow and take advantage of. They wanted the money for their political donor and rich friends. ...

So….nothing would be...

“The media will eventually find another show horse to ride, especially if the public continues growing weary of the zealots of the Tea Party movement. Unless Paul can find ways to serve his constituents and actually accomplish something in the Senate over the next six years, I suspect Kentucky voters will be quick to put him out to pasture.”

The capability erodes in the U.S. and grows in China. That’s very destructive. That is a big reason why the U.S. is becoming more and more polarized between a small, very rich class and an eroding middle class. The people who get...
