Saw a news story today about how pure caffeine powder can be bought online, and a full teaspoon of caffeine can kill you.

Since pure caffeine powder is considered a dietary supplement, the FDA is legally prohibited from regulating it. I think it’s time to amend DSHEA - the Dietary Supplements Health & Education Act - in order to remove caffeins’s status as a “dietary supplement” and regulate caffeine over a certain amount as a controlled substance.

Proof that pure caffeine can be bought on eBay:

Meat eaters and vegetarians/vegans need to put their petty, insignificant differences aside and unite as one to get mandatory GMO labeling or a GMO ban.

While certain “holier than thou” vegetarians/vegans are treating their dietary lifestyle as a religion and acting like a vegan faction of the Westboro Baptist Church, Monsanto is cramming GMOs down everybody’s throats and buying off the politicians.

While meat eaters are making fun of vegetarians/vegans, Monsanto is pumping your meat with growth hormones and GMO grains.

I don’t give a flying fuck about the petty insignificant bickering between meat eaters and vegetarians/vegans. I’m more concerned about eliminating GMO foods and returning to the days when all crops were organic and natural.

If you meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans want to be tools of the system and engage in petty insignificant partisan bullshit, then be my guest. I refuse to be a tool of the system.

After reading this, I have to say Infowars is starting to look like a Kremlin propaganda front.

Personally, I see no difference between illegal military invasions in the name of “democracy” and “peace” and the Crusades in the name of “Christianity.”

Jesus said “love one another as I have loved you”. I don’t see how killing innocent people in the name of “democracy,” “peace,” and “Christianity” is loving.

I’m sorry, but Raw Story has turned into a government propaganda machine promoting the New Cold War.

If Raw Story had been around in the 1950s (assuming that modern technology were available at the time), Raw Story would be defending Joseph McCarthy’s communist witch hunt.

RIP James Garner (1928-2014)

Little known fact: James Garner was born James Bumgarner and has a nephew Terry Bumgarner who used to head up the sports department for WOWK 13 in Huntington, WV. Terry Bumgarner is now an executive for CMT.

Karen Mitchell is to Hardcore Pawn as Cousin Oliver was to The Brady Bunch.

Now that I’ve found a better development platform for developing my customized remasters of Ubuntu (my MacBook and VMware Fusion), I think I’m gonna convert my old netbook into an Android laptop.

It’s sad that a news reporter gets attacked with his own tripod just because he was doing his job of reporting possible horse abuse and filming from public property. I guess the right wing prick who attacked the reporter is okay with states criminalizing animal welfare activists as terrorists for undercover filming of animal abuse at factory farms. This makes me proud to be an animal welfare activist myself as well as a paying member of the Humane Society.

I personally believe that copyright laws are an ancient relic which need to be done away with. Copyright laws - and the abuse of copyright laws - stand in the way of innovation, and without innovation, the United States will fall further behind in the tech sector.

The Aereo decision just reaffirms my belief that the Supreme Court is in the tank for Big Business and Big Media. It wouldn’t surprise me if the justices who ruled against Aereo received hefty checks from Big Media.

RIP AEREO

A little over three years ago, our team embarked on a journey to improve the consumer television experience, using technology to create a smart, cloud-based television antenna consumers could use to access live over the air broadcast television.

On Wednesday, the United States Supreme Court reversed a lower court decision in favor of Aereo, dealing a massive setback to consumers.

As a result of that decision, our case has been returned to the lower Court. We have decided to pause our operations temporarily as we consult with the court and map out our next steps. You will be able to access your cloud-based antenna and DVR only until 11:30 a.m. ET today. All of our users will be refunded their last paid month. If you have questions about your account, please email support@aereo.com or tweet us @AereoSupport.

The spectrum that the broadcasters use to transmit over the air programming belongs to the American public and we believe you should have a right to access that live programming whether your antenna sits on the roof of your home, on top of your television or in the cloud.

On behalf of the entire team at Aereo, thank you for the outpouring of support. It has been staggering and we are so grateful for your emails, Tweets and Facebook posts. Keep your voices loud and sign up for updates at ProtectMyAntenna.org - our journey is far from done.

Yours truly,
