New Years

Dominant Special Interests dominate our Exports – Wall Street and the Oil and Gas Industry.

it shouldn't come as a surprise that gas is now one of our leading exports. But nothing or noone - other than lobbyists - says it has to be.

And our energy conservation efforts are still woefully difficient.

The Oil and Gas Industry propoganda machine strikes fast, hard and repeatedly to get what it wants.

Dead Wolves are politically important to Democrats found in their range.

Got to get those votes.

Specials on public television, articles from the State controlled media, etc. there is way too much energy going into justifiying the shooting of 100's of Wolves that is currently taking place.

Where's the Change We Voted for?

I understand the Republicrook obstruction and sabotage preventing the President from making progress, in fact accomplishing anything! Trying to appease the Repunlicrook Obstructionists gave US Obamacare which is a Travesty, betrayal and insult to Honest Americans who Work For/Earn the meager living left after the elitists have stolen most of the money!! The last 2 men proposed by the President for Treasury Posts are an OUTRAGE, an Economics Professor who supports continueing the Policies that brought our Nation down (Reaganomics), and even worse a former executive of the Carlisl

Glimmers of Interesting Possibilities in the Milky Way

Part 2 of NASA's Year in Review for 2011 was placed on the NASA website yesterday. This entire report is focused on the Kepler Space Telescope, which has been wonderfully successful so far in its mission (1) "to discover rocky planets that lie within the habitable region of their parent stars" and (2) to help "scientists learn more about the stars in our galactic neighborhood."

info about Medicare rate change

I received an email from a friend who forwarded an email he received from "Stacy". Stacy's email stated that Medicare premiums were going up 8% in 2012 to $104.20, 15% in 2013 to $120.20, and 105% in 2014 to $247. She/he stated these rates were in the "Obamacare" legislation and the big jump in cost was being delayed to allow Obama to have a better chance of re-election. The emailaddress for "Stacy" is and she is urging all seniors to spread the word and that Obama is throwing us under the bus.

Part 2 of "Everything You Know is Wrong" about: Your Body

In the Bhagavad-gita, recognized as the most important scripture of India, Krishna gives knowledge to his dear friend Arjuna on a battlefield, 5000 years ago. He teaches, “You are not this body.” This is the beginning of knowledge. But where is the university that teaches this knowledge? There is none. That is the position of education: there is no knowledge. They simply advertise ignorance as knowledge.

That's Moxy for you

If Victoria Jones was any less of a reporter.........

That iphone is an ugly thing to see next to her perky hairdo and quality reporting.
Admittedly, my past posting concerning the odd disconnect folks have over the truth of apple's complicity in slave labor and treasonous corporate activities ( see Phone Phony posting) was due in part to her, I had hoped to plant the seed of discontent in all nice, compassionate folk concerning this core issue of America.

Speculation on Oil Futures drives up prices at the Pump – actual change in supply caused by Iran: ZERO.

Extracting all our fossil fuels from locations within the United States isn't going to change Wall Street's ability to speculate households into price shocks at the pump.

What Will We Do If Our Voices Can't Be Heard ?

I watched Glen Beck the day Massachusetts Senator, Scott Brown was elected to fill the seat left vacant by Ted Kennedy's death. On the day of the election, Glen Beck was aggressively pressing his listeners to call everyone they knew in Massachusetts and tell them to be sure to get out and vote. His zeal and enthusiasm in exhorting the voters seemed to mimic that of a successful televangelist.

Did the Fossil Fuel Industry Bring Us to the Point of No Return?

As runaway climate change continues to wreak havoc on the planet, it’s getting harder and harder to disagree with the idea that we’re in the middle of a potentially massive extinction event. It’s also getting harder and harder to ignore the potentially criminal liability of at least some fossil fuel companies for causing this mess.
