Two Mid-South men with strong white-supremacy beliefs are in custody In Memphis, Tennessee after planning a state-to-state killing spree that included assassinating Barack Obama, the two also targeted 88 black citizens and beheading 14 blacks. The numbers 88 and 14 have special significance within the 'White Power' movement.
Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., near Jackson, and Paul Schlesselman, 18, of Helena-West Helena, Ark., hatched their plan after they met on the Internet last month and discussed their shared interest in "White Power" and "Skinhead" philosophies.
Schlesselman states that they planned to drive their vehicle as fast as they could toward Obama, shooting at him from the windows. Both individuals stated they would dress in all-white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt. Both individuals further stated they knew they would and were willing to die during this attempt. They wrote racially motivated words and symbols on Cowart's vehicle, including a Swastika and the numbers 14 and 88. The numbers are symbols in skinhead culture, referring to a 14-word phrase attributed to an imprisoned white supremacist: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children" and to the eighth letter of the alphabet, H. Two 8's or H's stand for "Heil Hitler.
The two men are charged with making threats against a major candidate for the office of president, conspiracy to rob a federal firearms licensee and possession of a sawed-off shotgun. They were arrested Wednesday in Crockett County, appeared in federal court Monday in Memphis. They are in custody and have a hearing Thursday when a judge will determine whether to set a bond.
Its Gonna Be Bedlam In Memphis !!!
Bedlam had to post this for my wife. This song popped in Bedlams head, and Bedlam said 'yeah' got to post this for her. I remember going to this LTD concert in the late 70's.
This One Is For You Honey!!!!
It's Gonna Be BEDLAM Tonight !!!!

As his father, Sean Connery snaps a photograph, left, Devin Connery of Lunenburg, fires a Heckler & Koch Universal Machine-Pistol at the Machine Gun Shoot and Firearms Expo sponsored by the Westfield Sportsman Club and C.O.P. Firearms and Training on Sunday. Later in the day, an 8-year-old boy accidentally shot himself to death while shooting an UZI.
WESTFIELD - An 8-year-old boy lost control of a fully automatic UZI he was shooting while at the Machine Gun Shoot And Firearms Expo. He was shooting the weapon down range when the force of the weapon made it travel up and back toward his head, where he suffered the injury. UZI’s come in many sizes, Bedlam’s shoots a short barrel Israel Military Industries 9mm. Bedlam knows the force that these weapons produce and no way even with supervision will Bedlam let an 8 year old fire one of these -- full auto.
There's an investigation going on now involving both Westfield police and the state police assigned the incident.
The Westfield Sportsman's Club, in association with COP Firearms & Training of Amherst, was conducting a machine gun shoot and firearms exposition. Bedlam has participated in many machine gun shoot, and still cannot figure why they would let juniors handle this type of weapon. A great deal of safety it presented during these events and there are a number of certified instructors on the range during active fire.
Westfield police said, "it appears the incident was purely accidental," Bedlam says accidental or not a young child is dead from a gun. Bedlam is a member of NRA and supports gun rights for Americans, Bedlam does not support gun carelessness.
Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the Attorney who filed suit against Barack H. Obama challenging Senator Obama's lack of "qualifications" to serve as President of the United States, announced today that he is immediately appealing the dismissal of his case to the United States Supreme Court. The case is Berg v. Obama, No. 08-cv-04083.
This is a question of who has standing to uphold our Constitution. If I don't have standing, if you don't have standing, if your neighbor doesn't have standing to question the eligibility of an individual to be President of the United States - the Commander-in-Chief, the most powerful person in the world - then who does?
So, anyone can just claim to be eligible for congress or the presidency without having their legal status, age or citizenship questioned.
According to Judge Surrick, we the people have no right to police the eligibility requirements under the U.S. Constitution.
What happened to ‘...Government of the people, by the people, for the people,...' Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address 1863.
We must legally prevent Obama, the unqualified candidate, from taking the Office of the Presidency of the United States," Berg said.
Berg again stressed his position regarding the urgency of this case as, "we" the people, are heading to a "Constitutional Crisis" if this case is not resolved forthwith.
If Obama wins the Presidency and the U.S. Supreme Courts find that he is not a U.S citizen, what will that mean to the office?
What will this mean to all of the citizens that supported Obama?
What will this mean to FOLK PEOPLE ?
Rudy Ray Moore (March 17, 1937 - October 19, 2008) was an American comedian, musician, singer, film actor, and film producer. He is perhaps best known as Dolemite, the uniquely articulate pimp from the 1975 film Dolemite, and its sequel, The Human Tornado. The persona was developed during his earlier stand-up comedy records.
Moore began his entertainment career as an R&B singer and continued singing through his comedy career. He developed an interest in comedy in the Army after expanding on a singing performance for other servicemen.
Rudy Ray Moore released many comedy records throughout the 1960s and 1970s, developing a style even more rude and explicit than contemporaries like Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor. This kept him off of television and major films, but cultivated an enduring fan base.
In 2008 Rudy Ray Moore reprised the character Petey Wheatstraw for the song "I Live For The Funk" Featuring Blowfly and Daniel Jordan. This marked the first time Blowfly and Rudy have collaborated on the same record together, and the 30 year anniversary of the movie Petey Wheatstraw.
On Oct 19th 2008, R R Moore died from diabetes complications. Death was "Breathing down his neck"Bedlam Sad,
Doctors Warn Over Rash from Excessive Cell Phone Use
Clinicial testing revealed the reaction was caused by nickel in the mobile phone handsets, where it is often found in the casing or buttons, particularly in the most fashionable models.
Test showed that allergies exposure to hexavalent chromium plating nickel, budesonide, mercaptobenzothiazole, and paraben mix were at least 1.12 times more common.
People that may have had reactions to a nickel-coated belt-buckle or jewellery, for example, you are at greater risk of reacting to metal phones.
In mobile phone dermatitis would typically occur on the cheek or ear, depending on where the metal part of the phone comes into contact with the skin.
You can purchase a test kit (Allertest Ni, Allerderm Laboratories, Phoenix, Arizona), in which we applied a drop of dimethylglyoxime and a drop of ammonium hydroxide solution to a cotton-tipped applicator and rubbed it on the part of the equipment being tested.
Bisphenol A - a chemical used to make a wide variety of plastic goods, including most baby bottles, may not be safe. It's called bisphenol-A, or BPA. Tests involving lab rats and mice have shown that even small amounts of exposure to Bisphenol A can lead to a range of serious ailments. Bisphenol A. is found in all kinds of common products, mostly polycarbonate plastics (baby bottles to water cooler jugs, bicycle helmets, CDs and the lining inside tin cans)
Animal studies have linked Bisphenol A to low sperm count, hyperactivity, early puberty, obesity, small testes size, and enlarged prostates.
Three things to know about the study:
* It doesn't actually demonstrate any health hazard. It only looked at the genetic effects of Bisphenol A on mice, and not at whether it caused reproductive problems or deformed embryos.
* The techniques used in the study don't necessarily predict actual harm in animals or humans.
* The study does not show that the effects seen are relevant to humans.
In a recent study, fetal umbilical blood shows higher Bisphenol A levels than was generated in mice. Human exposure levels are already high. More than 90 percent of us have it in our body and the question is: is it safe. Many scientists believe it can act like the hormone estrogen, and animal studies have linked it with breast, prostate and reproductive system problems and some cancers.
Several states are considering restricting Bisphenol A use, some manufacturers have begun promoting Bisphenol A-free baby bottles, and some stores are phasing out baby products containing the chemical.
The One Word For Both:
Deception (De*cep"tion) (?), n.
[F. déception, L. deceptio, fr. decipere, deceptum. See Deceive.]
1. The act of deceiving or misleading. South.
2. The state of being deceived or misled. "There is one thing relating either to the action or enjoyments of man in which he is not liable to deception." South.
3. That which deceives or is intended to deceive; false representation; artifice; cheat; fraud. "There was of course room for vast deception." Motley.
Synonyms -- Deception, Deceit, Fraud, Imposition. Deception usually refers to the act, and deceit to the habit of the mind; hence we speak of a person as skilled in deception and addicted to deceit. The practice of deceit springs altogether from design, and that of the worst kind; but a deception does not always imply aim and intention. It may be undesigned or accidental. An imposition is an act of deception practiced upon some one to his annoyance or injury; a fraud implies the use of stratagem, with a view to some unlawful gain or advantage.
Clean the house, house dust-associated bacterial endotoxins have been shown to be associated with asthma severity, and a similar role has been suggested for fungal (1->3)-ß-D-glucans. Dust samples were collected from mattresses and from living room and bedroom floors, and endotoxin and (1->3)-ß-D-glucans were measured in dust extracts. The relations with mean daily PEF variability (Ampl%mean) were investigated by linear regression analysis, adjusting for dust mite allergen levels, presence of pets, and type of floor cover. In unadjusted analyses the levels of both endotoxin and (1->3)-ß-D-glucans per square meter of living room floor were significantly associated with PEF-variability. Adjusted analyses showed the same association for (1->3)-ß-D-glucans but not for endotoxin. Filters and all the dust collected on the filter, were extracted at room temperature with pyrogen-free distilled water containing 0.05% Tween-20 , and after centrifugation and collection of the supernatant, redissolved in an identical volume of the same medium (H2O-Tween) and extracted at 120° C to solubilize (1->3)-ß-D-glucans.
A supernatant was used to measure endotoxin in a chromogenic kinetic Limulus Amoebocyte Lysate (LAL) test, using one single lot of the LAL reagent. (1->3)-ß-D-glucans was measured in a second supernatant with a (1->3)-ß-D-glucans-specific inhibition enzyme immunoassay (EIA), using affinity-purified polyclonal rabbit anti-(1->3)-ß-D-glucans antibodies, and laminarin [a linear (1->3)-ß-D-glucans] as the coated antigen and calibration standard. Bedlam says, the major house dust mite allergen Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (Der p1) was measured in the first extract, with a Der p1-specific, monoclonal antibody-based, sandwich EIA. Because H2O-Tween is not commonly used for extraction of Der p1, control experiments were performed with a series of duplicate house dust samples that were extracted with either H2O-Tween or with buffered saline.
All this to say, exposure to house-dust-associated (1->3)-ß-D-glucans in the home environment may increase peak flow variability in asthmatic children. Although (1->3)-ß-D-glucans can be derived from both plant and fungal material, and thus can not be used as a highly specific marker for mold growth, the here-reported association may be one of the major mechanisms accounting for the relation between dampness and fungal growth in the home environment, and respiratory morbidity.
*** Bedlam message to OJ - Hold you head up brother, a black man's pride is all that we can truly call 'ours'. Life treated you with all the blessing that the average brother could only dream of. Life also presented the disasters one face when dreams become nighmares. Brother I can't say right or wrong, good or bad, I'm not the one to make that judgement, I can say sometimes a brother has to do what he as to do, and that you did. OJ my prayers are with you.

Bedlam don't know the financial status of you, Bedlam only knows Bedlam's Financial status. Wall Street actions always catch my attention because Bedlam got money tied there. Believe Me I Tell You, I have been watching like a hawk, Bedlam just want to pass some information Me got from the web about 'Avoid Common Investing Mistakes'
Five Typical Challenges
Almost all of us have made investing mistakes. The key is not to make the same ones twice. These mistakes can directly affect whether or not you achieve your desired goals. By repeating even just one mistake,
individual investors can quickly become their own worst enemy. Below are some common investor errors and some suggestions on how to sidestep them.
Starting Too Late (forget this)
The most common mistake investors make is waiting too long to initiate a longterm investment plan. The earlier you can start the investment process, the more likely it is that the plan will succeed. Thanks to the power of compounding, a small amount of money, wisely invested early on, can turn into a large sum over time. So try to avoid procrastinating and start investing today.
Lack of Diversification (pay a little attention to this)
By investing all of your money into just one asset class, industry, or company, you are placing all of your eggs into one basket—and this can be extremely risky. For example, at year-end 2006, nearly 9% of 401(k) plan participants held more than 80% of their account balances in their own company’s stock (according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute). It is better to combine a variety of investments, such as stocks, bonds, and cash, all of which are unlikely to move in the same direction at the same time. Your portfolio’s risk exposure should be lessened as a result.
Lack of Research (pay attention to this)
No matter what type of investment you plan to make, be sure to conduct the proper research. It is unwise to allocate your money to an investment you do not understand. There are a number of helpful resources that you can explore—ranging from public information to professional advice. Take advantage of these resources.
Unrealistic Expectations (pay attention to this too)
Many investments require time to grow. Investors often become frustrated with the early performance of their investments, decide to sell too quickly, and move the proceeds into other investments. This could result in knee-jerk reactions leading to too much trading, which is not only expensive, but also usually unnecessary. It is important to maintain a long-term view and to not be distracted by short-term results.
Chasing Past Performance and Overreacting to Market Fluctuations (Bedlam Bingo!!)
Yesterday’s hot stocks or mutual funds can become tomorrow’s worst. A good number of investors buy assets when they have reached their peak only to watch their performance suffer. It may be a good idea to choose investments with a history of good performance as well as quality management. Employing a dollar cost averaging strategy, which involves the purchase of securities, such as shares of mutual funds, in fixed
dollar amounts at regular intervals, can also be helpful. This strategy is maintained no matter what direction the market is moving and typically results in the investor being able to purchase more shares when prices are lower, and fewer shares when prices are higher, with the average price paid for each share obtained falling
somewhere in between.
This is always the fine print
Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks and charges of the Investment Company carefully before investing.
