“The Home Office have reversed their decision. Billy will be given access to his anti epileptic Cannabis oil today.” : Nye Bevan News

This is what happens when you deny epileptic children their medication – all so that you can adhere to the politics of Richard Nixon & Margaret Thatcher’s ‘War on Drugs’…

Anyone who thinks CBD medication, harnessed from the Cannabis plant, is morally wrong should watch this and sort their moral compass out.

IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE PEOPLE

WHO TOOK THE TIME TO HELP WITH THIS,

THANK YOU.

YOU MADE THE DIFFERENCE.

Petition · Humane Society of Southwest Washington : Allow adopted animals their right to be able to return home · Change.org

"OUR WORLD"

Note for me… As a volunteer at the shelter for many years…I know how the Humane Society can circle their wagons and their rules need to be changed for situations like this one.

Losing a pet can be devastating, they need to contact the new adopters and let them know the situation, and hopefully they will return the cat, and adopt another kitty and give that one a forever home.

Tina is only asking for 200 signatures, but I want more signatures!!!!

Please sign this petition and share her story, this needs to to get out to the public.

Tina Evarts started this petition to Humane Society of Southwest Washington and 2 others

My cat was adopted from the humane society under the name “Goofus” while I was out of town for a little over a month. I had no idea he was even missing until after I’d returned back…

     Excuse us for living, but while so many of you remember or have heard of that tumultuous year 1968, we the Class of 1968 put our claim on it. It was our year and, with it, all the misery and anguish that went with living through it, well, we put first claim on it all! Now having fluffed our feathers, we realize that so many of our generation shared in the same agonies from the military draft hanging over our heads to serving and dying or being wounded in Vietnam. – – And what about living through the upheaval of those uncertain times politically, socially, culturally, in an atmosphere of increasing anti-war protests!

International Domestic Workers Day Fact-Sheet

The Human Lens

Today, on International Domestic Workers’ Day lets celebrate this growing movement aimed for asserting rights of a vast but hidden workforce.  Currently, 67 million domestic workers toil across the globe, not including child domestic workers and the demand for domestic workers keeps increasing at a fast pace in developed and developing nations.

Lets take a look at the latest fact-sheet on the issue:

  1. Even though a substantial number of men work in the sector – often as gardeners, drivers or butlers – it remains a highly feminized sector: 80 per cent of all domestic workers are women.
  2. Domestic workers comprise a significant part of the global workforce in informal employment and are among the most vulnerable groups of workers. They work for private households, often without clear terms of employment, unregistered in any book, and excluded from the scope of labour legislation.
  3. Their work may include tasks such as cleaning…

Press Ignores Obama’s Lie About Emails To Hillary’s Private Server

PA Pundits - International

By Tom Blumer ~

Thursday’s Inspector General’s report reviewing FBI and Department of Justice actions before the 2016 election effectively concluded that former President Barack Obama lied to the American people and committed illegal acts in emailing then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private-server email addresses.

The IG also found that former FBI Director James Comey scrubbed all hints of Obama’s prior knowledge from his July 2016 statement explaining why Mrs. Clinton would not be indicted for her illegal acts.

Despite these indisputable facts, reports at the nation’s three gatekeeping establishment press outlets have not mentioned Obama’s name in connection with any of this.

Joy Pullmann at TheFederalist.com explained these matters Thursday afternoon:

Here’s the related portion of Obama’s interview with CBS News’s Bill Plante in March 2015:
