  Scenic Highway
  [17 min] Due to the recent unpleasantness, Baton Rouge has eclipsed New Orleans as the largest city in Louisiana. Is the city destined for greatness? Scenic Highway is the name of US Highway 61 as it passes through northern Baton Rouge. It is also this trip to the city -- and such landmarks as Huey Long's art deco State Capitol building and Buckminster Fuller's hidden geodesic dome. This darkly affectionate memoir is also an exposé of the city's colorful history -- told through the use of animated motion graphics, archival Super 8 footage, and re-created & faux-created elements.

  3/12 Washington DC: 'Stop Loss Congress' sows chaos on Hill
  [53 sec. by: DC Independent Media Center]On March 12, the Stop Loss Congress project blocked Independence Ave on the house side of the Hill, blocked the Senate parking lot on that side of Congress, and protested inside the Senate galleries as well with Senators looking on. Over a dozen arrests(looked like 16) at the Independence Ave blockade resulted after protesters held the intersection for about 40 Minutes. Ten more were arrested in the "Ghosts of War" protest in the Senate Galleries and an unknown further number at the Senate parking lot blockade. The purpose of the blockades was an attempt to prevent members of Congress from leaving for vacation until they bring home all troops and contractors from Iraq-including those who have been involuntarily extended the way protesters tried to involuntarily extend Congress.

  They don_t care about Us
  Source: http://www.freedomfiles.org/war/fema.htm There over 600 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States. The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a mass exodus of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons. Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation. The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the detention facilities. Many also have an airport nearby. The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold approximately 2 million people. A person named Terry Kings wrote an article on his discoveries of camps located in southern California. His findings are as follows: Over the last couple months several of us have investigated three soon-to-be prison camps in the Southern California area. We had heard about these sites and wanted to see them for ourselves. The first one we observed was in Palmdale, California. It is not operating as a prison at the moment but is masquerading as part of a water facility. Now why would there be a facility of this nature out in the middle of nowhere with absolutely no prisoners? The fences that run for miles around this large facility all point inward, and there are large mounds of dirt and dry moat surrounding the central area so the inside area is not visible from the road. There are 3 large loading docks facing the entrance that can be observed from the road. What are these massive docks going to be loading? We observed white vans patrolling the area and one came out and greeted us with a friendly wave and followed us until we had driven safely beyond the area. What would have happened had we decided to enter the open gate or ask questions? This facility is across the street from the Palmdale Water Department. The area around the Water Department has fences pointing outward, to keep people out of this dangerous area so as not to drown. Yet, across the street, the fences all point inward. Why? To keep people in? What people? Who are going to be it’s occupants? There are also signs posted every 50 feet stating: State of California Trespassing Loitering Forbidden By Law Section 555 California Penal Code. The sign at the entrance says: Pearblossom Operations and Maintenance Subcenter Receiving Department, 34534 116th Street East. There is also a guard shack located at the entrance. We didn’t venture into this facility, but did circle around it to see if there was anything else visible from the road. We saw miles of fences with the top points all directed inward. There is a railroad track that runs next to the perimeter of this fenced area. The loading docks are large enough to hold railroad cars. I wonder what they are planning for this facility? They could easily fit 100,000 people in this area. And who would the occupants be?

  The Problem With Subsidies
  Meet Ibrahima Coulibaly from Mali and James Macha from the U.S. Both are cotton farmers, but with vastly different experiences. The American farming subsidies that support James have a negative impact on farmers like Ibrahima, who are trying to climb out of poverty. The result is communities in poor countries face conditions that make them more vulnerable to crime, conflict, or even terrorism. How can rich and poor countries work together so that there is a level playing field?
