The Canadian Broadcasting Company reported on the death of the teen girl, who was from one of Ontario, Canada's aboriginal First Nation tribes. Another teen girl from the same community is still in the care of Brian Clement, who Florida officials have ordered to stop practicing medicine and calling himself a doctor.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Thursday that his experience taking on thousands of protesters in his state helped prepare him to take on terrorists across the world. The likely Republican presidential contender sparked pointed criticism from labor union leaders across the country after remarks delivered on the first day of the Conservative Political Action Conference in suburban Washington. "If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world," he said. read more

Televangelist Pat Robertson warned this week that women could have their pregnancies cursed by a "coven" of witches if they posted ultrasound photographs on Facebook. In an email to Robertson on Monday's 700 Club, a viewer explained that her daughter was pregnant. "Young parents now regularly post fetal ultrasound photos as their Facebook photo," the woman wrote. "From a spiritual point of view, is there any harm in doing this?" read more

At a meeting on Friday in Taos, New Mexico, Native American leaders weighed a handful of proposals about the future of the United State's large, illegal European population. After a long debate, NANC decided to extend a road to citizenship for those without criminal records or contagious diseases.

"We will give Europeans the option to apply for Native Citizenship," explained Chief Sauti of the Nez Perce tribe. "To obtain legal status, each applicant must write a heartfelt apology for their ancestors' crimes, pay an application fee of $5,000, and, if currently on any ancestral Native land, they must relinquish that land to NANC or pay the market price, which we decide. read more

Oliver Sacks: A month ago, I felt that I was in good health, even robust health. At 81, I still swim a mile a day. But my luck has run out -- a few weeks ago I learned that I have multiple metastases in the liver. Nine years ago it was discovered that I had a rare tumor of the eye, an ocular melanoma. Although the radiation and lasering to remove the tumor ultimately left me blind in that eye, only in very rare cases do such tumors metastasize. I am among the unlucky 2 percent. read more

What are you talking about? You dehumanize a whole culture, a region, a religion and civilization because you and Obama don't have the stomach to keep troops in Iraq?

They dehumanize themselves. Look up Sunni-Shia violence and get back to us. You have one muslim burning another muslim alive and you call that humanity?

Your hatred towards Obama blinds you to the real issues in the region.

Yes, I don't want US troops in the region. It was a fools errand to go into Iraq in the first place and it was downright criminal to go in their based on lies over WMD's.

Certainly better than our current coward in chief. Why? Because he honored the withdrawal agreement W negotiated in 2008? Again your hatred blinds you to what is really going on.

You obviously believe that despots and dictators are the way to go, I am going to guess you thought the Shah of Iran was a good guy? In fact you could say the Shah's fall is what caused all of this.

Nope, but they are the only one's brutal enough to control the violent lunatics that seek power in the middle east.

What do you think the King of Saudi Arabia was/is? A benevolent leader? Public beheadings. Forcing schoolgirls into a burning building to be burned alive because they did not have their burqas on. Women cannot drive. Women are owned property. Women are killed for being raped. And yet he was W's butt buddy. Kissing and holding hands in Texas. And you loved it and still do.

The Saudi royal family were the backers of 9/11 and yet a blind eye is turned to them because we NEED their oil. That is all it comes down to. Corporate aggression in the name of oil.

The US government is stupid enough over and over and over again to stick their noses in that shithole and this is the price.

Now you cheer on another 100 years losing thousands of American soldiers and tens of thousands more maimed and crippled all for the folly of a coked out frat boy and a greedy fucking pig Cheney who just had to invade Iraq and set up a neocon utopia of free markets.

Bush Sr knew what would happen without Saddam in Iraq. Colin Powell did too.
