They say he is not a leader and is letting this China/japan crisis get out of control by not taking a leadership role by sending second level diplomats to the area. Japan's leader is trying to antagonize the situation and drag the USA into a conflict because the USA is burying it's head. Jan's laeder is rewriting history books they claim.
What will the Staes do about this. Will they keep raising taxes or give in to legalize MJ as another means to raise taxes, or lower taxes like they did in Canada when they realized they went too far.
Earlier this month, S2O2 acquired Zero-Blast, a Texas-based company that specializes in advanced, anti-microbial coatings for germ-infested environments such as college sports locker rooms. Its top product, Armor-Blast, is a polymerized organosilane that bonds to surfaces and forms a barrier that kills germs, microbes and pathogens on contact. The safe, non-toxic coating needs only to be applied four times a year in order to provide 24/7 protection from staph, MRSA, e. coli, H1N1, black mold, athlete’s foot and more.
Zero-Blast has been working with TCU for four years, beginning with the sanitization of the school’s football facilities and equipment. The Armor-Blast treatment worked so well that Zero-Blast was hired to apply the same treatment to basketball, baseball, volleyball and soccer facilities, as well, including indoor field turf.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- After President Obama's State of the Union Address this week, Cannabis Science (CBIS
) is leading the private sector effort to take cannabis-derived drugs to market. The company's government relations team lead, Rick Blake, is working with the U.S. House of Representatives' Cannabis Caucus to ensure that the President signs an Executive Order to decriminalize cannabis research. This is one of the bipartisan initiatives of the Members of the Cannabis Caucus being facilitated by Cannabis Science. In contrast to many other countries, the regulatory landscape of the United States creates unreasonable restrictions on the ability of scientists and physicians to explore promising patient-driven research involving cannabis and cannabinoids.
"Thousands of patients are awaiting the President's action to set cannabis research free," said Dorothy Bray, Ph.D., Director and CEO of Cannabis Science, Inc. (CBIS
), one of the leading supporters of scientific cannabis drug development in the private sector. We applaud those congressional members in Colorado, California, Oregon, New York, Massachusetts and many other jurisdictions in the United States who have determined to take forward U.S. cannabis drug research." Dr. Bray and others on the CBIS team support critical legislation for the use of cannabis in the treatment of multiple illnesses including cancer.
We could finally put the Anslinger nightmare partially to bed.
Currently Colorado, Washington, California, West Virginia, Vermont, Kentucky, North Dakota, Oregon, Montana and Maine all have hemp farming laws in place, but farmers for years have been barred by federal law from cultivating the non-psychoactive cousin cannabis.
But a Republican-backed, 959-page farm bill that is quickly working its way to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives would allow for hemp cultivation in ten states under federal pilot programs.
"This is big," Eric Steenstra, president of Washington-based Vote Hemp told the Associated Press. "We've been pushing for this a long time."
Hemp supporters call the agreement to put the hemp language in the farm bill is a major milestone. Republicans who have long fought against hemp production because they think it will be a gateway to outright marijuana legalization apparently see it as a cash cow for traditionally-agricultural states struggling economically.
"From Oregon to Colorado to Kentucky, voters across the country have made it clear that they believe industrial hemp should be regulated as an agricultural commodity, not a drug," said Oregon Rep. Earl Blumenauer, who has been pushing for federal hemp and marijuana law reform for several years now.
Just three years ago, the U.S. imported $11.5 million worth of hemp products from China and Canada. Sen. Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, says he hopes farmers in his state can tap into that market.
"We are laying the groundwork for a new commodity market for Kentucky farmers," McConnell said in a press release.
The bill heads to the House floor today for debate, where is expected to see some resistance. Not for hemp, though. The bill's most controversial aspect is actually a 15-cent tax to be collected by the feds for every Christmas tree cut or imported in the U.S. - basically, it's a tax on every tree but the ones farmed out by U.S. farmers. That, and language that urges Mexican citizens living in the United States to apply for food stamp assistance.
Despite those setbacks, Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid says the bill will likely pass through the House and into his Senate without issue.
