This long-awaited study was commissioned by the White House and Drug Czar Barry McCaffrey. In short, the report verifies that marijuana does have medical benefit, and argues that it should be made available to patients who could benefit from its use now. This link will take you to their website, where you can read a full copy of the report.
Political opponents of allowing the use of marijuana as a medicine routinely say that there is no scientific basis for claims that the drug is useful. For instance, U.S. drug czar Barry McCaffrey has said, "There is not a shred of scientific evidence that smoked marijuana is useful or needed."
Over the past 18 months there has been wide-ranging public discussion on the potential medical uses of marijuana, particularly smoked marijuana. To contribute to the resolution of the debate
The prohibition of the recreational use of cannabis, and some of the doubts about medical use, are based on the presumption that cannabis is harmful to individual and public health. We have tested the strength of that presumption, and this Chapter records what we have found. New research on this subject is constantly coming forward, so this cannot be said to be the last word on it. Although cannabis is not in the premier league of dangerous substances, new research tends to suggest that it may be more hazardous to health than might have been thought only a few years ago
There have been a series of six studies conducted by state health departments under research protocols approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This is a quick summary of each of those studies. by Kevin B. Zeese, Esq., attorney in federal marijuana rescheduling cases.
1. Hottest Christmas Toys 2004 #1 - Techno
Video games (and the systems to play them on) are HUGE again this year -- again. Some of the old favorite characters and game types will still be hot, but there are new electronic entertainment systems and interactive TV games that will be equally popular.

From snowboarding to 'monster truck' interactives, and from action heroes to mysteries, you can look for Nintendo, Sony Playstation and xbox systems and games to be leading the pack.

2. Hottest Christmas Toys 2004 #2 - 'Boy Toys'
Action 'toys' like scooters, dirt bikes and skateboards are for both boys and girls, of course, and they are all among the hottest Christmas toys for 2004.

3. Hottest Christmas Toys 2004 #3 - Remote Control
2004 will quite possibly be the 'Year of the Remote Control' toy. Hobbytron's remote control stunt cars are hot, hot, hot, and there are remote control boats, hovercrafts and various kinds of action figures on the list of the hottest Christmas toys for 2004. Be sure to check them all out!

Some other old favorites will be back, but some of them have a decidedly new 'flavor' - for example, the EasyBake oven just got even easier, and even Cabbage Patch kids have been updated and will be hotter than ever this year.

5. Hottest Christmas Toys 2004 #5 - Educational/Creative

4. Hottest Christmas Toys #4 - Movies
Sometimes a movie follows a best-selling book, but not always. Other times, there's a blockbuster movie that children are clamoring to see. Again, if there's a hot children's movie, you can count on the merchandise that will follow -- and children will clamor to own.

If you are still having trouble figuring out what the hottest Christmas toys will be this year, start paying attention to your children and their friends. What are they interested in? You'll easily overhear their conversations this time of year -- what are they talking about, excited about? And of course, you can always ask them -- or just wait for the TV commercials to start, and they'll be asking!
2004 will be a blockbuster year for children's Christmas toys.

- No single 'must-have' toy will dominate Christmas toy sales this year (like the Cabbage Patch Doll, Elmo or Furby have in past years).

- Nonetheless, expect significant shortages of many popular toys this Christmas season, because toy retailers are being more conservative this year due to the economy. In fact, almost everyone is predicting Christmas toy shortages. overtimepay/mythsfactsheet.cfm
FACT: The new Bush Administration overtime laws are written such that many workers
who currently earn overtime pay in this pay range are likely to lose it.
FACT: The new Bush Administration overtime law, in fact, lays out in the regulation exemptions which corporations have not been able to win in the courts.
MYTH: The Bush Administration merely updated the rules to reflect today’s modern workplace, but did not strip workers of overtime pay rights.
FACT: The Bush Administration could have supported the Harkin Amendment which allows them to make any updates to the rules, as long as no worker loses overtime pay. In fact, the Bush Administration has made it MORE difficult for many workers in the structure of today’s workplace to receive overtime pay.

MYTH: The Bush Administration has cut back on the number of lawsuits which will arise over overtime pay.
Currently, the Cost of War calculator is set to reach $152 billion at the end of 2004. This amount is based on the National Priorities Project analysis of the three requests made by the Bush Administration for funding for the war on Iraq, and what Congress actually allocated.
The most recent request passed by Congress was for an additional $25 billion which was intended to pay for the costs through the end of the calendar year. For more information, please see the NPP publication, 'Cost to taxpayers of new $25 billion war request.'
War affects everyone, not just those directly involved in the fighting. This webpage is a simple attempt to demonstrate one of the more quantifiable effects of war: the financial burden it places on our tax dollars.

Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton recently announced President Bush will be seeking a $ 56.5 million increase in funding for the nation's wildlife refuges in this year's budget bill
The Ten Commandments was ruled unconstitutional and the monument was removed earlier this year. Since then, it's been on a tour across America.
Christians can pray, worship, sing hymns or read the Bible all they want. They just can't plant a two-ton monument to their particular religion in a government building - and, in effect, turn that building into a religious shrine. Why not? Because it amounts to an official endorsement of one religion over others.
There’s no question that the play of Nebraska’s running backs was by far one of the biggest bright spots of the 2004 season. First year position coach Randy Jordan did an outstanding job in teaching junior Cory Ross and freshman Brandon Jackson what it takes to be a back in the West Coast offense. Find out what the highs and lows of 2004 were in’s positional breakdown of Nebraska’s running backs.
One of the areas Nebraska must see drastic improvement in next season is quarterback play.

ZAHN: You have long been known as the "Ten Commandments Judge." Where were you when "Roy's Rock" was moved?

MOORE: Well, I was at home taking my son to the hospital. He had to have an examination, an MRI, on his head that morning, and I was at home.

ZAHN: And how outraged were you when you found out that that was the ruling you were going to have to live by?

MOORE: Well, I was extremely disappointed--disappointed in the officials in our state who have let this happen, disappointed that they would let a judge threaten the state of Alabama to remove the acknowledgment of God, which is fundamental to our state and our justice system under the Constitution of Alabama. Without the acknowledgment of God, we have no justice system, according to the Constitution--and that I'm sworn to uphold.
Moore was suspended for refusing to obey a federal judge's order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the rotunda of the Alabama Judicial Building.
Roy Moore is a genuine celebrity for the Religious Right in America — his perpetual court cases over his various displays of the Ten Commandment have become a popular cause for fundamentalists around the country.
