The case against peace activist Barbara Dowling on a criminal charge of failing to comply with the 2011 Census was scheduled for Tuesday 25 September but has now been adjourned again until 19 Feb 2013, 10am, at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

In Scotland, a large contract for the census was awarded to CACI Ltd, British subsidiary of a US-based defence contractor implicated in serious human rights violations at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq for which it faces no criminal sanctions although some former Abu Ghraib prisoners are bringing a civil lawsuit against the company in the US. Nearly 200,000 households in Scotland failed to return the 2011 Census questionnaire as required by law, many in protest at CACI's involvement, but just five prosecutions have been brought.

Many Ron Paul supporters will vote third party for Libertarian Gary Johnson, twice governor of New Mexico, on the ballot in 50 states. He has twice balanced the state budget, calls for immediate withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, a 43% cut in military spending, decriminalization of marijuana (which would reduce border crime) among many other of his principled stands. The following article by Janet Glenn published on describes fraud in 20 US states.
