Tucson, thousands attend gun show one week after mass shooting “The events at the Safeway store were tragic and unprecedented,

Photos Reportedly Include G-String and Gun It’s quite embarassing for the establishment media who
pushed the hoax for several days that Loughner was a tea partier to
now have every single detail about him confirm that his rampage was
so obviously motivated by his mental instability and has nothing whatsoever
to do with politics.
And Gloom Have you noticed that most Americans seem to
know far more about American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Justin Bieber
and their favorite sports teams than they do about world affairs?
First WikiLeaks Revolution? Tunisians didn’t need any more reasons
to protest when they took to the streets these past weeks — food

Oil Prices May Kill The Economy NICK Clegg earlier this week made a pitch for
the hearts of “alarm clock Britain”: those who “come

when gunmen set ablaze 14 tankers carrying fuel for US and NATO
troops in Afghanistan, officials said. The latest attack occurred

Runs Out Of Silver In Germany With the US Mint selling silver at an unprecedented
pace, it was only a matter of time before the silver shortage would
be spotted across the Atlantic, where distributors ran out of both
gold and silver on a daily basis during the first time Europe became
insolvent some time in early May 2010.
Government Admits Fluoride Hurting Children A significant milestone in the fight against
fluoride emerged quietly and without major notice from the mainstream
news last week. After decades of ignoring the research about the
dangers and hailing water fluoridation as one of the 10 greatest
health achievements of the 20th Century (CDC), the government is

For the first time since 1962, the standard for fluoride will be
lowered from 1.2 to 0.7 milligrams per liter.
