It's Halloween, Not Holloween

Think about how these words are pronounced:
callow
fallow
gallows
hallowed (be thy name)
(marsh)mallow
sallow
tallow
("Wallow" is a special case. W tends to make following a's sound like /ah/. Compare "water" and "hater".)

Now think about how these words are pronounced:
follow
hollow

Now, based on the pattern, how would you pronounce "Halloween"?

Climate Collapse: Multiple State Governments caught trying to hide scary Climate data from the Public.

Should government's just let their People bumble along living life as the choose to knowing full well they can't save them from climate collapse?

Is it better to let someone live peacefully as they choose, knowing they'll do from it or should governments up end it all and make their People finish their existance in a desperate, futile, and uncomfortable struggle to save themselves from themselves?

Exports: Arch Coal trying to build 20,000 acre strip mine in Montana that shits all over the Cheyenne tribe.

Ah yes, good ole dirty energy exports, the Corporations gets the profit, Washington gets to point the finger at the nation that burns it at as the “real” cause of climate change, and the People – in this and other cases the politically impoverished indigenous – pay the cost of it all. How many times has this been played out?!?

This from EarthJustice:

“Arch Coal is planning to extract 1.3 billion tons of coal from this mine to ship to the West Coast and overseas to Asia.”

Inspection- BOO!

Lucky you! Next week’s Inspection arrives early with a truly frightening big Halloween boo!

While ghouls, goblins and kids in Ebola costumes gather their riches, could gas companies, politicians and religious fanatics be plotting to gather even bigger “heavenly” rewards?

VOTER ID IN NORTH CAROLINA

I voted today in early voting in my district. In my 42 years of voting this was by far the most complicated voting method that I have every encounter. It was ran by the Republican majority that now controls our state government. The first hurdle is filling out a form that ask if you have and ID on your person. This law does not go into effect until Jan 2016. The Republican Recent Chairman was very obnoxious and demanding of this information.

Walker likely to sell State property to "cover deficit" he created.

It all smells premeditated.

And things can get much worse in Wisconsin.

Republican Lies in Advertising on your show.

While listening to the show on 880 AM here in Asheville NC, I heard two commercials for Republicans Thom Tillis (running for Senator) and Christina Merrell (running for Buncombe County Commissionaer). The negative ads boasted fallacious lies against both incumbents, Sen Kay Hagan and County Commissioner Ellen Frost and as I expected, you didn't crack wise against the ads. I understand that you're grateful for the revenue, Thom, and you expect that your listeners will parse the true from the false.

If the democrats lose ....

I have seen any number of elections over the years, but this is really the first election where I am truly worried abou the outcome. All year long we have been told the republicans are going to sweep into office throughout the country and wrest control of the senate from the democrats. This usually wouldn't bother me too much because the parties have always had a relative parity. That doesn't really exist now. Each side is becoming more and more polarized while those of us who used to be in the middle are being pushed aside. However, that is a topic for anopther day.

Jeb Bush and the Everglades

Regarding Jeb Bush and his relationship with big industry:

As President Bush was authorizing the Comprehesive Everglades Restoration Program (CERP) in 2003 which was supposed to be given $8.4 Billion in federal dollars to clean up the Everglades - his brother was approving sugar friendly legislation that allowed sugar growers a 10 year extension to continue to dump phosphates into the Everglades.

Quarantining Bad Behavior

Actually, quarantine originally meant 40 days, which should probably be the rule, unless proven otherwise. They say it takes 21 days to know if someone has contracted Ebola. But then you have the old Typhoid Mary story, which resulted in her being in quarantine for over 30 years, because she presumably continued to shed the typhoid bacteria and became a permanent risk.

The KEY TO THE BASTILLE is displayed at Mount Vernon in the center hall.

Lafayette sent the key from France as a gift to his old friend George Washington in 1790 via Thomas Paine in Europe and John Rutledge Jr. of South Carolina. The Paris Bastille prison was the symbol of the Ancient Regime that was stormed by French Revolutionaires.
