A Muslim man in Michigan has filed a $100 million lawsuit against Little Caesars because, the man says, he received and consumed pizza laced with pork pepperoni. Mohamad Bazzi is the plaintiff in the mega-dollar lawsuit, reports The Detroit Free Press. Bazzi, 32, claims that he specifically ordered halal pepperoni pizza on two separate occasions from a Little Caesars in Dearborn but received delicious pork pepperoni instead. Both pizza boxes he received were labeled “halal,” according to the lawsuit. The Quran, the main religious text of Islam, prohibits Muslims from eating pork. (“Halal” means meat meeting Islamic dietary requirements.) According to Bazzi’s attorney, Majed Moughni, the second time Bazzi received pork pepperoni was on Wednesday of this week — just before the start of Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting (which begins this weekend). The lawsuit, filed in Wayne County Circuit Court, claims that the first incident occurred back on March 20. Bazzi and his wife were in their home enjoying a Little Caesars pizza they’d picked up earlier. The couple was halfway finished with the pizza, the suit claims, when they suddenly realized they were eating pork pepperoni.http://dailycaller.com/2017/05/27/mu...ork-pepperoni/
Hmmm. He hated it so much, that's why he ordered it a second time!!
Three Americans were brutally killed by white supremecist terrorists. Two victims were US Military Veterans, and the President was silent.
He had other priorities.
He had to take time to congratulate the politician who brutally attacked a journalist.
Two good videos.

It now appears that the NSA, CIA and FBI has been spying on all Americans for political reason. They have been also spying on local officials, members of congress and judges in order to blackmail and achieve desirable results to the progressive agenda.
Ladies and Gentlemen....our government has become rouge and has broken the trust of the American people

SAN YSIDRO, Calif. —
Mexican traffickers are sending a flood of cheap heroin and methamphetamine across the U.S. border, the latest drug seizure statistics show, in a new sign that America’s marijuana decriminalization trend is upending the North American narcotics trade.
The amount of cannabis seized by U.S. federal, state and local officers along the boundary with Mexico has fallen 37 percent since 2011, a period during which American marijuana consumers have increasingly turned to the more potent, higher-grade domestic varieties cultivated under legal and quasi-legal protections in more than two dozen U.S. states.
Made-in-the-USA marijuana is quickly displacing the cheap, seedy, hard-packed version harvested by the bushel in Mexico’s Sierra Madre mountains. That has prompted Mexican drug farmers to plant more opium poppies, and the sticky brown and black “tar” heroin they produce is channeled by traffickers into the U.S. communities hit hardest by prescription painkiller abuse, offering addicts a $10 alternative to $80-a-pill oxycodone.
“Legalization of marijuana for recreational use has given U.S. consumers access to high-quality marijuana, with genetically improved strains, grown in greenhouses,” said Raul Benitez-Manaut, a drug-war expert at Mexico’s National Autonomous University. “That’s why the Mexican cartels are switching to heroin and meth.”
U.S. law enforcement agents seized 2,181 kilograms of heroin last year coming from Mexico, nearly three times the amount confiscated in 2009.
I have Linked several articles pertaining to meth and as to where it is coming from and if you aren't hip to the way things are done. Where the dope comes from, the way it is used to exploit people and regardless of what the fuck your local police department, they aren't doing shit.
Ideal are a good start
We are up to our gills in meth,” the county worker told me. “Four years ago one quarter of our child-protection cases were related to meth. Now, 92% of these cases are related to meth.”
“Our system just isn’t equipped to deal with the meth problem,” said another social worker.
Recently, more than 400 county supervisors and Health and Human Services staff came to the Capitol. I had visitors from every county in our Senate District. These officials brought me one clear message: Help us deal with the meth problem

By about 3 p.m. Friday, a county morgue in east Ohio was already full — and more bodies were expected.
Rick Walters, an investigator for the Stark County coroner's office, had just left for two death scenes: a suicide and an overdose.
From the road, he called the director of the Ohio Emergency Management Agency to ask for help. He needed more space, he explained — specifically, a cold-storage trailer to act as an overflow morgue

A rural patch of land filled with small towns and family farms tucked within the rolling hills of the Ozark Mountains, Douglas County seems an unlikely place to be at the center of America’s war on drugs.
But with the proliferation of cheap, high-potency methamphetamine flooding into the U.S. from super labs operated by Mexican cartels, local officials at this municipality in south-central Missouri say they’re seeing more dealers and users than ever before.
“We’ve always had a meth problem because we’re a rural county,” Douglas County Sheriff Chris Degase told Fox News Latino. “But now we’re not seeing the ‘shake-and-bake’ cooks anymore, the stuff we’re getting now is about as pure as it can get.”http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjs3-f86I_UAhUr6oMKHTLnCgsQFggkMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fworld%2F2016%2F05%2F16%2Fmexican-cartels-take-over-methamphetamine-trade-in-ozarks.html&usg=AFQjCNG9uxFLBtj5QRC9pYWXrTWzoQegYA&sig2=-avZadHfqHxWkb3Y3xXqnw
Alongside manicured parks and pristine government buildings it boasts shopping malls, designer clothes shops, five star hotels, shi-shi restaurants and nightclubs.
What makes Culiacan so different to other rural cities is that it is the home of one of the country's most powerful and ruthless gangs, the Sinaloa Cartel. Where there are cartels, there is money - lots of it.
The Sinaloa deal exclusively in drugs, vast quantities of them.
It's a multi-million dollar business that takes place under the nose of the country's anti-narcotics units which patrol the ganglands of the city day and night.
In recent years the profitability of their business has soared.The reasons are twofold, firstly they are focusing on the production and export of methamphetamine or crystal meth, rather than cocaine and heroin, and secondly they have developed ways to produce the drug on an industrial scale.
When there have been arrests for distribution of meth, they have mainly peaked at one or several pounds, and often occur in the city’s West Village neighborhood, officials say. Moreover, the rate at which meth has flowed into the city has been more of a trickle than a steady stream, given that it’s historically arrived in small quantities through the mail or occasionally via individuals traveling from the West Coast on airplanes.
So it was notable that authorities earlier this month collared near the Holland Tunnel a driver who, they allege, had 25 kilos of meth in his trunk. Officials believe the meth to be of Mexican origin, they tell Newsweek. Of course, one big bust does not a trend make, let alone serve as evidence of a potential drug “epidemic.”
It’s worth pointing out, though, that the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) meth seizures in New York have surged since fiscal year 2012. The DEA seized six kilos that year, but the total shot up to 44, 55 and 66 kilos in fiscal 2013, 2014 and 2015, respectively. And high-quantity busts, once scant, have picked up in this same period
GULFPORT, Miss. -- An underworld that traffics meth has found its way to South Mississippi, with Mexican drug cartels sending small groups to handle the delivery of meth in its most potent form.
The addictive stimulant is known as Mexican meth, crystal meth or ice because of its appearance.
Hundreds of kilos of ice have been found here in the past couple of years and most of it is linked to Mexican drug cartels and their super labs, said Daniel Comeaux, agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration's Gulfport office.
"Drug cartels are trying to infiltrate different states and are setting up cell heads as distributors," Comeaux said. "That's what we are seeing here."
The DEA has arrested about 20 cartel members in ice investigations in South Mississippi, he said.
Mexico is the main source of meth consumed in the United States, according to the Justice Department's 2011 National Drug Threat Assessment.
Ice is made in super labs that bear no resemblance to sanitized manufacturing labs.http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/201 ... pping.html

One trope repeated ad nauseum (often by idiot "libertarians") is "if you don't borrow or go into debt irresponsibly, you'll be fine."
While that is undoubtedly true on the individual level, doing so on the macroeconomic level would cause the entire system to collapse, since accumulating debt is necessary for the creation of money, which in turn is necessary for economic growth.
It's why the Republicans never actually cut the debt, because doing so destroys the foundation of the bourgeois economy. I always laugh at you retards who think the Republicans (the hit-man squad of the ruling class) or even Democrats (the good cops) will carry out debt reduction, since the claim belies a fundamental understanding of the system's mechanics.

What is the role of credit under capitalism?
When the credit crunch hit in 2008 and governments bailed out banks with trillions of pounds so they didn't collapse many people recognised that this was because of the huge amounts of debt in the system. Banks had loaned money to people and companies with no idea if they'd be able to pay it back, and these debts had then been sold on and bets taken on their future value.
So if the crash was caused by credit and debt, is it the fault of the banks for lending money, or people for borrowing? And couldn't we just regulate the system to get rid of this toxic aspect?
The system of credit and debt is not just something added on to capitalism that could be removed. It is an important part of the system that allows it to expand beyond its own limits, but ultimately contributes to its instability.
During a boom there is a frantic scramble for capitalists to invest and grab a bigger share of the market from their rivals. But sometimes an individual capitalist or company might not have the capital up front which they need to invest to keep ahead, whereas other capitalists may have surplus value from past rounds of production that they need an outlet for. Banks play an important role in mediating between these two possibilities, lending the profits of one capitalist as capital for another to invest.
This allows capitalists to accumulate more rapidly, driving capitalism forward. However, it relies on the confidence that the money lent can be repaid. And as the boom reaches its peak and people realise all that has been produced cannot be sold, and that therefore profit might not be made, the debts are called in. In this way the system of credit and debt that fuelled the boom also accelerates the crash and ultimately adds to its destruction.
So the credit system lubricates the accumulation process. Capitalists do not have to wait for one round of production to be finished before they can begin another, and have an outlet for surplus value they have accumulated that they do not wish to invest directly in production.
Through this process capital also appears to generate profit as banks pay interest on surplus value they hold, and charge interest on money they lend.
The rate of interest is irrational, depending on the supply of and demand for credit, not actual production.
But it is still important for the capitalist. The rate of interest still needs to "make" more money for the capitalist sat in a bank account than it would invested in production.
This leads capitalists to see money itself as self-expanding rather than value coming from the exploitation of workers.
Sometimes as well as borrowing capital from banks, a capitalist who needs money to invest might sell bonds in a company. The people who buy bonds are promised a share of the money that the company makes - providing a profit is made.
These bonds that promise a share of future surplus value can be traded at a price way above their original value if traders believe it will guarantee them an income in the future.
But it also means they can become worthless as the market crashes and people no longer believe the company will make enough surplus value to pay out.
These shares and bonds are described by Marx as "fictitious capital" because they are not capital themselves but merely the promise of future earnings. If they lose their value no capital has been destroyed - money has simply been transferred from the shareholder to the company.
It is not just capitalists who borrow money. Increasingly over the last 30 years workers have been encouraged to buy on credit, resulting in huge amounts of personal debt. This allowed capitalists to raise the rate of exploitation of workers, without affecting the number of goods and services a worker could buy, thus helping to maintain their profit rates.
These debts too can be traded and gambled on in the belief that they will be repaid in the future. This further ties the workers into the system and exposes them to the disorder of the financial system. As Marx put it, "Banking and credit thus become the most potent means of driving capitalist production beyond its own limits - and one of the most effective vehicles of crises and swindle."
So despite major economic crises invariably involving crashes of the banks and financial institutions it is wrong to blame finance, the banks or money itself for the crisis. These are essential elements of the capitalist production process and it is capitalism itself that is prone to crisis by its chaotic and unplanned nature. Credit and debt intensify both the boom and the slump, but do not ultimately cause either.
