Strengthen Medicare— End Drug Company Price Setting

 It’s no secret that, four years ago, President Obama cut a deal with the pharmaceutical industry. He promised that so long as the drug companies did not block health reform, federal law would continue to prohibit Medicare from negotiating drug prices. Instead, the pharmaceutical industry would get 30 million new customers and remain free to set drug prices for Americans. This single policy will cost Medicare and U.S. tax payers hundreds of billions of dollars over the next ten years.

Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) - IP Chapter

Today, 13 November 2013, WikiLeaks released the secret negotiated draft text for the entire TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Intellectual Property Rights Chapter. The TPP is the largest-ever economic treaty, encompassing nations representing more than 40 per cent of the world’s GDP. The WikiLeaks release of the text comes ahead of the decisive TPP Chief Negotiators summit in Salt Lake City, Utah, on 19-24 November 2013. The chapter published by WikiLeaks is perhaps the most controversial chapter of the TPP due to its wide-ranging effects on medicines, publishers, internet services, civil liberties and biological patents. Significantly, the released text includes the negotiation positions and disagreements between all 12 prospective member states.

Aliens from the planet Zung have traveled at warp speed to Earth...  the space aliens are infiltrating pure strain humans on our home planet...  these aliens — called Zungians — seek to turn human beings into a cheap source of protein...

you can spot Zungians because they have crossed purple eyes, and they have giant spotted ears...  they also have an extra arm hanging out from the back of their necks...  if you see any such suspicious creatures who are eating human bodies, call the appropriate authorities immediately!  Amen!

EDIT:  an alien from the planet Zung has eaten one of my wives...  there is nothing left of her but her fingers...

I grabbed a chainsaw when I heard her screaming, but I got there too late to save her...  I chopped the Zungian into little pieces, and threw chunks into the ocean to feed the sharks...  it's the end of the world as we know it...

The Cambodian delicacy of fried spider is something of an acquired taste. These little chaps are tarantulas, served with a lime and black pepper dip in the Phnom Penh restaurant Romdeng. According to Clive Graham-Ranger's book with Luu Meng, Cambodia's Top Tables, the restaurant serves over 200 a week.

Galileo Galilei

Thomas Müntzer (ca 1489 – 27 May 1525) was an early Reformation-era German theologian, who became a rebel leader during the Peasants' War

The Peasant War in Germany by Friedrich Engels is a short account of the early 16th-century uprisings known as the German Peasants' War (1524-25) written by Engels in London during the summer of 1850
Drawing upon the aims and methods of historical materialism, Engels downplays the importance of political and religious causes for the war traditionally cited, focusing instead on material, economic factors.
