Run From the Cure - The Rick Simpson Story

After a serious head injury in 1997, Rick Simpson sought relief for his medical condition through the use of medicinal hemp oil. When Rick discovered that hemp oil (with its high concentration of T.H.C.) cured cancers and other illnesses, he tried to share it with as many people as he could -free of charge. When the story went public, the long arm of the law snatched the medicine - leaving thousands of people without their cancer treatments - and leaving Rick with unconstitutional charges of possessing and trafficking marijuana!

I Won't Back Down - Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne (1989)

[George Harrison, Jeff Lynne and Ringo Starr are featured in the music video along with George's famous painted stratocaster "Rocky"...]

Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down
Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down.
Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
No, I won't back down

US Politicians and Elections: Now On Sale Everywhere

In this edition of ATS News we cover the stunning landmark decision of the US Supreme Court that effectively places a "for sale" sign on every politician in the country. While conspiracy theorists have known that corporate lobbyists have held sway over politicians for some time, the new ruling opens the floodgates for massive sums of money. The resulting fallout is that politicians and elections can be easily bought and sold by major corporations, in what some are calling the end of democracy in America. Other stories include Hugo Chavez's claim that the US caused the Haiti earthquake, freedom of speech in Italy, government wiretapping, and more.
