Why Biofuels will fail - natural limits

"Filling a twenty-five gallon tank of an SUV with pure ethanol requires 450 pounds of corn, enough calories to feed one person for a year."

Spread your words of wisdom in a Letter to the Editor..."We have a revenue problem!"

Thom:

I reach a certain boiling point of disgust and find my release in writing a Letter to the Editor, inspired by what I learn on your show. Thank you for enlightening us all and encouraging us to take action!

It never ceases to amaze me the types of responses many of my letters generate. Very few want to have honest debate and discussion. Why? Because it's far easier to hurl insults, show ridicule, and resort to name calling. They have nothing better to defend their viewpoint.

Here's what got published in the Tacoma News Tribune:

GE played role in Fukushima’s decision to dump 10,000 tons of Radioactive Waste in Pacific

Immelt is even mentioned by name

Is this true? If so Why?

I have been emailed from a conservative friend that the Obama Administration has declined the offer of IBM to root out fraud in Medicare. This offer was apparently done last fall. Anyway, is it true and if so, does anyone know why it was declined.

The Right's all Wrong!

The Government is on the heels of a shut-down and Paul Ryan has the audacity to say the Country does not have a "Tax Problem"... Uhh last time I checked, when the richest 2% of the population don't pay their fair share of taxes, it's a problem. Now he wants to lower corporate tax rates to 25%! This is a horrible idea, they think the economy is bad now? If they get their way with this budget proposal it's going to be really bad. When is the right going to realize that certain spending is necessary and we need all " people " ,including corporations, to pay their fair share of taxes.

Lost Another Progressive Radio Station!! This week!

We in Charlottesville, VA cannot believe WVAX has replaced progressive radio with ESPN. It was the ONLY liberal voice in this largely Progressive/Democratic area. There is no balance on our local airwaves.

One of the saddest lessons of history is this:

If we've been bamboozled long enough,

we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle.

About the Fairness In Voting Act, and Touch Screen Machines.


At the first thought of electronically taking and tallying the vote, as the Fairness In Voting Act had passed, I thought about how that would be done.
Not that I care much for the idea of voting machines at all. If Canada can take its vote with hand marked and tallied paper ballots, so can we, says me.
If we are to have machines, It never occurred to me that a private corporation, never mind one with a partisan tilt, would present machines whole and unexamined, with proprietary code, to be bought and used, without question.

Japan dumps radioactive water into sea

Japan has started dumping more than 10,000 tonnes of radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific.

The government insists the water is contaminated with only low levels of radiation and is not harmful to humans.

Plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) started dumping the water yesterday, saying a total of 11,500 tonnes would be released into the Pacific.

The company insists the radiation poses no threat to marine life and says it would still be safe to eat seafood caught in the area.

SNAFU -- Situational Norm At Fukushima: Unravelling

There are so many basic and important subjects within the scope of the Fukushima disaster that are either missing or misrepresented in the media. SNAFUs [Situations Normal - All Fouled Up] abound in nuclear power and they have been activated or exposed by the Fukushima Dai-Ichi disaster.

Dungeness Crab will be irradiated to extinction

Here on the northern California coast I have eaten the last dungeness crab that I can trust to not be irradiated. This delicacy of our northwest coast is treasured by so many. Now the nucleur plants of Japan have put all northern pacific sea life in danger. But the beautiful dungeness crab will not be safe to eat from this day forward. And, that makes a grown man cry........

‘…THE HEART HAS GOT TO OPEN IN A FUNDAMENTAL WAY…’

by SisterLee | - WWH – Tomorrow will be April 3rd–and since I took so long to revise this, it’s now 12:50AM on April 3– the date in 1968 Martin Luther King, Jr. did not feel well and shared his human frailty, combining it with his eloquent spiritual vision.

can a felon use a legal persons gun to kill an intruder or dog in nc

In North Carolina If there is a threatening dog or intruder invading your home or property and a convicted felon lives with you,is it legal for them to use the non-felons firearm to disable and/or kill the dangerous dog or intruder? If they would not be able to use a firearm what about a machete or knife?

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.
