NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A federal judge has scheduled a hearing on Sept. 19 for Halliburton Energy Services to plead guilty to destroying evidence after BP’s 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The company was arraigned Wednesday in New Orleans on a misdemeanor charge. Although company attorneys entered a plea of not guilty during the arraignment, Halliburton has agreed to plead guilty to one count of destruction of evidence in a deal with the Justice Department.

Most of you know the look you get when you honestly try and convince a member of the “Sheeple Nation” that America is on life support and that tens of millions are in grave danger. Along these lines, I was recently speaking with a friend of mine from Tennessee and began to point out how bad things in this country have become. Inevitably, the discussion began to center around the subject of unwarranted detention centers called FEMA Camps. My friend rolled his eyes and repeated the national anthem of all sheep, “I didn’t know you were one of them conspiracy theorists.” He couldn’t hold back the laughter.

Dear Marriage Supporter,

From Sean Hannity coming out on FOX hollering about the militarization of the police in America, to the following report from CNN correspondent Bruce Schneier declaring what most of us have already known for ages. Does this mean that the MSM is finally “coming around” and they’re not really controlled by the corporate power elite? Or are they just trying to balance things out to make themselves appear more legitimate? Continue reading “Well, it Must be “Official” Now that CNN Declares: “The Internet is a Surveillance State””

Is it still considered charity if Goodwill Industries only pays some of its employees 22 cents an hour? In Goodwill’s view, yes: They could be making nothing.
In a payroll decision that’s ideologically complex at best, Goodwill Industries outlets in Pennsylvania used a 75-year-old labor law loophole to pay disabled employees as little as 22, 38 and 41 cents per hour in 2011. Continue reading “Goodwill pays disabled workers pennies an hour”
“The plan we’ve been given in the past is ‘Well, lock your doors, turn off your lights and hope for the best,’” Superintendent David Hopkins said. But as deadly incidents continued to happen in schools, he explained, the district decided, “That’s not a plan.”
Home to an annual peach festival, the town isn’t known for having dangerous schools. But Hopkins said he faced a flood of calls from parents worried about safety after the attack last year at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. Continue reading ““That’s not a plan.” Arkansas school district trains armed faculty and staff to confront active shooters, refuses the “hide and die” mantra of those cowardly districts that won’t protect students”
A new article up at Forbes “Earth’s Future Forbidden Zones?” begins with all manner of coming world doom:

Yogurt, fruit, and insect juice? This last ingredient might seem out of place, but it is precisely what global food giant Dannon is adding as a food coloring to many of its commercial yogurt products, unbeknownst to the majority of its customer base.
