Foreign Policy Martha Vineyard or Nantucket-style

One one side of the Atlantic, we got to witness our President lecture down the Europeans for not integrating their respective Muslim populations enough.

No Ozone = No Magnetic Field

We are losing the ozone layer over our planet. We are also losing our magnetic shield. Watch the chemistry experiment and you will see that oxygen is magnetic. Might there be a connection between these two phenomena? Does anyone realize what will happen if we lose our magnetic shield?

Trouble with Islam?!: US Army Officially recruits for “Mission of God.”

Take a look at the photo and just off the top of your head do you think it might be sending the wrong message to, oh, i don't know, just a FEW places in the World!?!?!?

How to interpret Nietzsche's stance on suffering in relation to class:

Post Office Ended Overnight Delivery - Netflix Customers Screwed

On January 5, 2015, the Post Office ended a decades long service and intentionally slowed processing of first class mail by at least a day. Typically, a customer could count on overnight delivery of letters across the same zip code or metro area, which made services like Netflix initially attractive, but now film fans without high speed connections are left frustrated.

Swiss Central Bank wise not to trust Wall St stooge Christine Lagarde of Obama’s IMF.

In the words of Rich rat bastard Dennis Garman:

“"This really is a silly decision on their part, and it has inflicted enormous losses across the world to a great number of people," he told CNBC.”

Meh, I didn’t feel anything that felt like a loss, but hey! I’m a peasant! But don’t worry Rich bastards O’bama will bail you out in some round-about way the majority American Taxpayers will never find out.

Love Is In Our DNA

Love is Progressive Part 36: Love Is In Our DNA

We humans seem not very well suited to seeing ourselves from an objective perspective. Perhaps that is part of what humanity is, one of our shortcomings.

SSI fraud and disability

Did these people noy buy long term disabity insurance. SSI should be a supplement to private insurance. 60 minutes exposed one town in Kentucy where one doctor placed 50% of the town on SSI

SDI not just for civilians

Many injured military veterans are covered under SDI. How many? don't know but would be an interesting statistic. I ask because my brother was a Nam vet who could not function when he returned from the war. At the time he died over 20 years ago, his SDI support was $600/mo -- not a great amount but enough to provide the essentials augmented by family contributions and Veteran Administration medical care.

Cliven Bundy's Thug Son Arrested on Drug Charges

Finally some good news in the twenty-four hour cycle of terror. Federal agents recently apprehended the son of Cliven Bundy while driving an illegal commercial tour vehicle on our protected federal land. I would have loved to have seen the look on the guy's face when law enforcement rolled up on land where the Bundy clan is currently squatting and arrested the thug for cocaine and other charges.

The politicians and media should learn from baseball

If there is going to be war and terrorist acts committed maybe we should place a lot of the blame on the media. Baseball learned a long time ago not to televise people that ran onto the field during a game because they didn't want to encourage the act and fot the most part it worked. So what do you think happens when the terrorists get 7 days a week 24 hour coverage for their acts of violence. The terrorists have already won when they can control the media and create all the fear.

The Middle Class Needs More Than Talking Points

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have been talking a lot about the middle class. But, that talk is cheap as long as their in bed with Wall Street.
