    alfalfa55's picture

    The people that think that when people participate in a government program cause them to be dependent on government should:

    1) refuse to take any tax deduction (such as morgage and every other deduction.

    2) Should not drive or ride on any road, plane, train (they are all governement subsidied)

    3) Consume any coal, oil, gas, backtop, electricity, etc as they are government subsidied)

    4) Used the internet (it was created by the US, Britsh and French government project starting in 1959 (yes, I know DAPA started in 1957 but networking started in 1959).

     

  • A Parallel Reality

    I read a recent posting by Roger Casement concerning Charles Murray, the Koch Brothers, and Class Warfare and wanted to see if he or anyone else might share my research intererests.  (I've been at this for forty years..........which makes me old for sure.)  In any case, I submitted my original research manuscript, or memoir if you will, to the JFK Peace Corps archives when in opened, in 1982 I believe, and it was used as source material by a woman named Elizabeth Cobbs-Hoffman who, in All You Need Is Love, Peace Corps and the Spirit of the 60

  • Israel's "Right to exist": A red herring?

    nora's picture

    Netanyahu likes to bring up "Israel's Right to Exist" repeatedly.  But what does this mean?  How does Israel's genocidal policy against Gazans figure in there?  Israel's RIGHT TO EXIST AS A GENOCIDE PERPETRATOR?

    Netanyahu told AIPAC, I think, that the growing BOYCOTT, DIVESTITURE, SANCTION movement is "an existential threat" to Israel.  Is he clueless?  Why would anybody care to use boycott, divestiture or sanction against Israel if Israel wasn't using genocidal policies and perpetrating APARTHEID and colonialist theft against Palestinians?  Get REAL!

  • Citizen's United: How can it help the 99%?

        Hey Thom and company.  I don't know if anyone bothers to read these much but anyhow I will give it a go with the hope that they do.  I just wanted to say that I think that the left needs to take a more oportunistic and holistic approach to the Citizen's United decision rather than focusing on how the right is using it.  Let me ask a few questions to help develop my points.  Does Bain Capital deserve the right to contribute unlimited camaign contributions under the guise that money is speech while at the same time they are buying up very profi

  • Oil Companies & Ukraine

    ONe of Tom's recent callers came very close, but didn't quite get to the truth about the inter-relationship between LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) and Ukraine.

  • Wall Warts

    danmeester's picture

    Lots of discussion on wall warts...and a lot of misinformation. Things to take into account: Load and Conversion efficiency. A couple of minor math points:

    V=I*R   Voltage= Current times Resistance (Current is represented as "I"and is measured in amperes, Resistance is measured in Ohms)

    Power (measured in watts) = V*I

  • You Thought the Koch Brothers Were Bad? Turns Out They're Even Worse Than You Thought

    Charles and David Koch's reach into virtually every aspect of political, economic and physical life on the planet is probably greater than you thought possible.

    You knew they were big....You knew they were evil....From the union-busting actions of their minions in Wisconsin and Ohio to their assault on the environment and their attacks on climatlogy, Charles and David Koch have earned their place as the focus of progressives' scrutiny in the age of the Tea party -- the destructive and regressive movement they bankroll.
