However, simply moving to Oregon without a bit of Oregonian advice could be a bad idea. Why? Oregon is not your run-of-the--mill state.

Inmate Clayton Howard, who nearly died in a similar situation, says Chris Lange was murdered and his death consequently blocked from the public, because he was placed with an inmate who had a sworn death threat against him.

MCAS El Toro: Evidence Supports Cover-Up of Toxic Deadly Well Contamination.

I don’t believe in ghosts. If I ran into one or two, maybe I’d change my mind. The stories of lights in MCAS El Toro’s control tower when the power was cut off in July 1999 may be just someone’s wild imagination, but maybe they're the ghosts of Marines who served on the base and returned to haunt the place. No question there’s good reasons for haunting the former base.

Outlaw Vanity Tattoos for Cats.

Giving cats elaborate vanity tattoos is all the rage right now in Russia. Pet owners sedate their hairless felines and subject them to the pain of the needle for hours in order to decorate them with ever more fantastical designs. This is selfish and outrageous


State Anti-Abortion LawsMay 17, 2019, 12:04 pm 1 comments in the last 30 days. comments
State Anti-Abortion Laws.

Alabama became the eleventh state to pass anti-abortion legislation. Now eleven of the 22 states with both a Republican governor and legislature have passed an anti-abortion law. I expect it to be eventually 22 of 22. The Republicans know or should know that these laws are unconstitutional under the Supreme Court’s earlier decision in Roe v. Wade.
