Questionable Leadership

How is it we can have an unlimited supply of money for Quantitative Easing without much debate at all, and a multiple year deliberation over the funding of infrastructure?

Thom Hartmann has effectively been silenced in Wisconsin

No one in Wisconsin will even know Bernie Sanders is running or who he even is. 92.1 The Mic out of Madison, WI is/was a Clear Channel station that ran Thom Hartmann's show live until about 2 weeks ago. They bumped the Thom Hartmann program back to 8pm. Now the usual Brunch with Bernie segment comes on at 8pm on a Friday night. Only your most loyal listeners will and are able to seek out your website if, say, they wanted to call in and ask Bernie a question. However, those aren't the people who *need* to hear you, ya know? Then I thought about my

This is a comment on Thom's first rant today, Monday, April 6, 2015.

To Fluoridate or not to Fluoridate...that is the question!

You can pay big bucks to the Dentist for a Fluoride treatment or you can buy gels over the counter and you can use mouthwash with low concentrations of sodium fluoride in it. Just don't ever swallow!!! And even not swallowing will not keep you from having absorbed toxic amounts of sodium fluoride into your blood stream...and doing damage to your gums.

[quote=fluoridealert.org]
While fluoride gels are designed to be applied “topically” (i.e., directly to teeth), very large quantities of fluoride are absorbed into the body during the treatment.

Infrastructure instead of quantatative easing

Instead of rewarding Banks for bad behavior with Quantitative Easing, that money would have gone further by hiring the victims of the Bank's bad behavior to rebuild American Roads, Rails, and Runways, and everything else.

Samantha Power: you are not as Hot as you think, Re: Dead Fox

Dear United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power,

There is a dead fox on your head. OMG. Sorry, that is not a dead fox, it is just your hair. Oops. From far away, it seems like a forest dweller succumbed to the painful throws of mange and chose your head as its final resting place. You speak with such pride and dare I say "power" that if a fox was actually dying of mange and malnutrition, your head would be a most dignified place to lie and that should be taken as a compliment.

Cheating Teachers

What was the one thing you noticed that all these Atlanta teachers had in common when their group mug shots were displayed on TV? Let's see...some were men and some were women...what else? These teachers sure didn't do their pupils any good for correcting wrong answers on their tests. Stupid is as stupid does and the incorrigibly stupid will continue to be incorrigibly stupid for the rest of their (probably very short) lives as they gang bang and rap about killing cops, raping hos, and punching out cops after having smoked a lot of dope.

Does Religion Have a Future?

With Easter and Passover now here, I was wondering about the state of religion. Interestingly, a Pew Research just came out with a report which states that the fastest growing religion is Islam, which, by the year 2050, will be on par with Christianity; by 2070, it will exceed Christianity to become the world's largest religion. The largest centers of growth will be in the poor and over populated continents of Africa and Asia. Even in India, which is and will remain predominately Hindu, the Moslem population will grow dramatically.

OMG!!! ZAYN HAS LEFT ONE DIRECTION!!!!

Why Obama Should Pardon Don Siegelman

The New Yorker Magazine, January 14, 2015 - by Jeffrey Toobin

Since the midterm elections, President Barack Obama has been acting as if he feels liberated from parochial political concerns.

After taking action on immigration, Cuba, and climate change, he should take on another risky, if less well-known, challenge by commuting the prison sentence of Don Siegelman, former governor of Alabama.

Sulu proves he could easily be admiral of the Enterprise!

Inspection- GAG

  Who do some "free enterprise" folks think they're kidding? Of course the constant spin is if that damn gov-vern-ment would just get out of the way the market would regulate itself so well puppies would never die, Jesus would be uncrucified, rain, snow, sleet would turn into peaches and cream that conveniently plops into single serve bowls.
  Yeah, that was sarcasm.

Restoration

The biggest mass extinction in the history of the world was caused by carbon dioxide. That’s the conclusion of a shocking new study published last week in Science Magazine.

According to that study - the Permian Mass Extinction - which occurred 252 million years ago - started when a group of volcanoes erupted in Siberia - sending tons upon tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
