Today on MSN I read that pay pal is perfecting software so that shoppers don't need a wallet. No Physical ID. Just their smart phone, and their face. At limited (for now) retailers they can check out getting their face scanned. The ease and convenience of this for some is obvious. However, the potential for abuse is daunting to think about. Even if you believe that government and business entities will only use this for good (I DON'T HAVE SUCH FAITH) the risk one is exposed to from genius criminals is unprecedented. If they could manipulate the system to steal your facial records, make their face your face in databases, exc. The results of such malicious behavior is limited only by the mind of those willing to commit such acts. Pay Pal expects this to be the method of payment for many by 2016.

As released by the AP, "PHILADELPHIA - A jury weighing murder charges against a Philadelphia abortion provider will re-hear several hours of testimony before resuming deliberations. Dr. Kermit Gosnell is charged with killing a patient and four babies allegedly born alive. Prosecutors say the 72-year-old Gosnell routinely killed babies born alive. The jury is set to spend much of Wednesday reviewing the testimony of medical assistant Lynda Williams. One of the infant deaths Gosnell is charged with relates to Williams. She has testified that she cut the child in the back of the neck after it was alive for about 20 minutes. Gosnell is charged with first-degree murder for allegedly conspiring with Williams to kill that baby. Williams has pleaded guilty to third-degree murder. The jury has been deliberating for a week Read more: http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/national/dr-kermit-gosnell-abortion-trial-a-week-in-jury-weighs-pennsylvania-abortion-clinic-deaths#ixzz2Sds9TfIJ Mousie Marc Says, " Hey why haven't the media put this front page and put it on the mainstream news?" Well the following link really sheds the details pretty well. http://www.policymic.com/articles/34339/dr-kermit-gosnell-s-abortion-trial-why-isn-t-the-media-covering-it Lets quote from this article at depth "Among the relatively few cases that could be specifically documented, one was Baby Boy A. His 17-year-old mother was almost 30 weeks pregnant – seven and a half months – when labor was induced. An employee estimated his birth weight as approaching six pounds. He was breathing and moving when Dr. Gosnell severed his spine and put the body in a plastic shoebox for disposal." As was his wont, Dr. Kermit B. Gosnell would try to lighten the mood with a bit joking. Boy A was, he said, "big enough to walk around with me or walk me to the bus stop." But Boy A will never have that chance. The good doctor saw to that. Dr. Gosnell was the operator of an abortion mill – this was no clinic – located in West Philadelphia called the "Women's Medical Society" and set up in 1972. He was a product of the local neighborhood, and he had spent almost four decades running his establishment – "giving back" to the community he grew up in. Of course, he had a peculiar form of charity: "Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure." Gosnell's mill was known for its willingness to carry out late-term abortions – the illegal practice (in Pennsylvania) of killing a child after the initial 24 weeks of pregnancy. Indeed, as word spread about the doctor's services, women would come from all around to enjoy the benefit of his service.' Mousie Marc Says, "'Oh ha ha ha. That child could have walked me to the bus stop before I snipped this breathing childs spinal cord and watched it die.' Oh that Dr. Gosnell, he's a real humanitarian, and funny to boot. The article continues, ""There was blood on the floor," witnesses reported. "A stench of urine filled the air. A flea-infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs. Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets." Mousie Marc Says, "Oh and here comes the most game changing part of the article. When asked why this practice was allowed to continue for DECADES. The article makes this conclusion." In short, "the reason no one acted is because the women in question were poor and of color, because the victims were infants without identities, and because the subject was the political football of abortion." Mousie Marc Says, "So back to my original question. Why is this not being covered? This is just the tip of the ice berg of what this guy has done. I've heard so much more. Following through on abortions even when the women changed her mind by quickly sedating her being just one of them. our society wouldn't be protecting it's sacred cow would it?"

I am going to make this blog bit nice, sweet, and to the point. I just watched the alphabet channels clearly display marshal law. Granted, one can point to the fact they were chasing two terrorist suspects who bombed the Boston marathon. For the sake of argument I'm going to give you that one (even though I personally believe there is a lot more behind this story, and the words "false flag" come to mind). Still, the entire city of Boston and surrounding areas for the most part was shut down and militarized. This basicly happened overnight. I have no doubt it will quickly disperse and some form of normalcy will ensue shortly after. However, the fact that our government can militarize a city that large in such a short period of time should give you pause. What else can they do? How quickly? I learned a thing or two today. 1. Our country could potentially be under marshal law in a weeks time if they so desire it to be. 2. Even after 9/11 people will still spew sport team like slogans while not engaging their brains, and thinking about what is really going on. Many people think that the whole story is over. They catch two guys and think, "that's it." How could two guys pull this off? How could two guys just set up multiple bombs around a highly visible marathon guarded by police? What about the reports that there were training exercises that that a bomb went off the day before? Is it true that someone was screaming it's just a drill while the bombs were going off? Good questions.

Nikki Sixx, The Heroin Diaries First, I have never tried heroin. I was offered it once as a teenager and turned it down flat. I come from a family who has many members who have succumbed to various alcohol and drug addictions. I have lost family members to alcohol, cocaine, heroin, and others. I personally chose not to go down this road. I read this book attempting to possibly gain more insight into my loved ones who did use IV drugs. I got a bit of a better idea. More on me later most of you want a book review. The Heroin Diaries on one hand are very telling stories about drug addiction. Telling us about being strung out and vomiting and having diarrhea at the same time should not come across as glamorous to anyone. On the other hand I would have liked to have seen him really spell out his unique situation a little more. Yes, he actually died and was brought back to life twice. Yes, he did have multiple relapses and talks about how he had to deal with his personal emotional demons before he could STAY Straight. But one of the things he mentions (but not in as much detail as I would like to have seen) is how his rock stardom, and subsequent million dollar finances allowed him to do this. Nikki didn't have to physically steal from his family and friends to get his drugs. He burned through a million dollars in drugs (mostly heroin and cocaine) in one year. I would have loved one entry that stated, "If I wasn't an international rock star I would have lived on the street and stolen from everyone around me. I probably would have ended up dead long before my two failed attempts. I had so many people looking after me I didn't have to be responsible at all. They enabled me, and I had the money to do it. If you think this is glamorous, just think, instead of having the ability to spend a million dollars on drugs in one year, you'll burn every friend and family member you ever once loved. They will never trust you until your clean, and you will end up on the streets soaked in your own urine shooting drugs without anyone at your side dying and wishing you were dead." He did do a little of this with his stories concerning Ratt guitarist Robin Crosby. Robin lost his battle with heroin. Robin got AIDS from sharing needles with vagabond street junkies, and died homeless and broke. From being a millionaire with platinum records to dying homeless without shoes on the streets of Los Angelas. Those are the stories I would have love a little more of. Not all together Nikki's fault. He found a way through the heroin death trap. Many do not. My adopted father lost his brother to heroin that way. I got to watch my dad cry like a baby. I give Nikki a lot of credit for putting this in print to begin with. However, because some of the drug stories are in turn associated with the band "Motley Crue" I feel drug use was occasionally glamorized in the "rock Star" persona. I do feel he did a good job of showing the lonely aspect of drugs, the lying, the nights by yourself, the paranoia. All in all he did a good job. Last but not least I want to tell you about those who don't use drugs, alcohol, or have other addictions but are hurt by them. The little girl who's mother had an addiction and kept getting them evicted from every home they ever had. The anger that stems from that is great, and that little girl grew up to be a nurse but had to work to overcome her childhood. The little boy who watched his mother falling asleep drunk in a bowl of cheerios everyday when he came home from school. He saw the needle fall out of his uncles pocket with a spoon, and didn't understand why his brother had all those "cigarette burns" on his arms that were irregularly shaped (you know track marks). That little boy also grew up, became a nurse, and married the the little girl above. They both chose to go on a different path than the examples they saw growing up. But what they didn't quite understand, and that which would take them years to understand is the impact it had on them. One became angry and had to deal with those issues for years because of her childhood. The other learned to ignore everything as if it didn't exist. Imagine being a nurse a year out of school and getting your first heroin addict. Charge nurse tells you, "Typical infected abscess from injecting." You go in and introduce yourself, and you leave the room like, "What, typical what, that guy is just a normal dude." My coworkers looked at me like I was out of my mind. I had completely shut off seeing addiction in any form as a defense mechanism. Drug addicts around the home were normal when I was growing up. My uncles friend was a chiropractor before he lost his license and family to cocaine addiction. Last I heard, he lost his two new children (because his first wife divorced him and took his first child) he had with his new girlfriend (a heroin addict) because the kids came out addicted. Though he (the former chiropractor) is working at a pawn shop for minimum wage, living in a slum, and trying to avoid the dealers he owed money to. How glamorous is that? Unless your a rock star with a million dollars to spend on smack and blow you'll end up dead and it won't be glamorous.
