The Last Hour
Time Magazine is investigating a healthcare telemarketing firm who has been using an amazingly realistic robot caller which seems to operate on advanced and a bit creepy artificial intelligence.
The Florida firm Premier Health Plans Inc. is responsible for "employee" Samantha West heard in the exchanges below. After cleverly filibustering, she repeatedly insists she's a real person and not a robot.
Not sure who the Drone belonged to, but we can guess..... Not Good, Not Good at all.
"Fifteen people who had been heading to a wedding in Yemen have been killed in an air strike. Local media reported that a drone attack had been responsible, and the party-goers had been hit instead of an Al-Qaeda convoy.
My quit date: 12/13/2010.
Here we are three years later, without a single cigarette. Woo-hoo!
Considering smokes were $8 per pack when I quit, and I was back to smoking a pack a day, that is $8 x 3 x 365 = $8,760 that I saved! Not to mention I'm healthier, have more energy and better control over my life generally. It is the greatest all around bargain, ever. All upside, no downside.

Having quit about a million times prior to that last time, I have some words of encouragement and advice for anyone considering quitting. This is a problem of mind over matter, and cold turkey is a pretty difficult road to take. You have years of habits built up that have to be unlearned and wound down. While it is not exactly easy, if I can do it, you can do it, too! Even if you tried and failed before, that doesn’t matter. You can do it this time.
This is step one. You have to believe that you can.
AWESOME! Sen. Rand Paul On The Senate Floor Speaking Out Against The Nuclear Option - 12/12/13 (VIDEO)
In light of statements in regards to the Commission on Presidential Debates such as “a fraud on the American voter” and “The debate commission is a corrupt duopoly.”, Free and Equal Elections Foundation hosted the 2012 “3rd Party” Presidential debates that were moderated by Larry King and Thom Hartmann and viewed by an estimated 20 million people.
Right about the time I was gearing up to quit smoking three years ago, I saw an ad* for a Harvard study looking for people wanting to quit. They gave you free nicotine patches, as well as counseling and support, which sounded great. They had an office in downtown Boston, right by the site of the Boston Massacre. The researcher who ran it looked like Natalie Portman.
I was born in Brooklyn in the beginning of the 1950′s, and I grew up in the countryside in Norway. I always have been proud to be an American citizen, but now I am just worried.
NDAA is snuck through Congress while Media and politicos are distracted by the budget, etc.

Notables include Charlie Rangel, Justin Amash, Linda Sanchez(Is she the next Dennis Kucinich for the Dems?), Barbara Lee(The lone dissenting nay against authorizing the Afghan war in Congress), Mark Sanford, and surprisingly Jan Schakowski.
A 12 year old Canadian boy passed away from a severe asthma attack, which could have been avoided if the inhaler his doctor prescribed had been on hand, instead of in the Principal's office under lock and key.
Such a tragedy could have also been avoided if the school hadn't confiscated all of his spare inhalers.
Does anyone still trust public schooling? If so, why?
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - Police in the City of Colorado Springs were forced to pay $23,500 to a man they arrested by mistake for carrying his weapon in public. James Sorensen sued and won after he was arrested at a festival in July, one day after the Aurora shooting occurred. The entire incident was caught on camera and when the officer who disarmed him told him to get a lawyer, that’s exactly what he did.
A Hawaii state health official who gained national attention when she released a copy of President Barack Obama's birth certificate in 2011 was killed in a plane crash off the island of Molokai, authorities said on Thursday.
Expert witness from FBI: Two Fullerton cops (Jay Cicinelli on left; Manny Ramos on right) acted unprofessionally in killing of homeless man
During yesterday's testimony in the Kelly Thomas murder trial, a retired FBI supervising special agent and tactical police training expert told jurors that the 37-year-old homeless man had a right to use force to defend himself against two Fullerton police officers who'd essentially converted themselves into heavily armed thugs with badges.
