Wake’N'Bake 101: Accompaniment

By Dr.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Race

Our local news channel (WSAU) is reporting with 97% of the votes in, Kloppenberg is ahead with 16,000 votes. But wait Waukesha County, the same one with missed votes, is the last one out painting their votes red with envy. Amazing how vote totals can chance so much.

Thom's comments about recent weather evenets and global warming

I think when anyone tries to use a single weather event as "proof" of global warming it actually hurts their cause. I think the case is still out on climate change. I also think that these attempts to attach the global warming issue to every significant weather event are a mistake. The climate change issue is a very large issue, relating to very large factors in society and in nature.

NOVEMBER 22, 1963

John F. Kennedy was killed November 22, 1963.

One of the free world's greatest days of infamy.

Koch brothers and climate science

The debate about global warming has reached ridiculous proportions and is full of micro thin half-truths and misunderstandings.

Watching this issue unfold has been amusing but, lately, worrying. This issue is tearing society apart, making fools and liars out of our politicians. Let’s set a few things straight.

Republicans, Marijuana & Suicide Kits...

Recently, Oregon Legislators unanimously voted to outlaw the sale of Suicide Kits after 29-year old Nick Klonoski ended his life in December. On the surface, this seems quite logical, much like restricting the availability of poisons, but it does beg the question: at what point do we outlaw societal conditions that make people want to commit suicide?

Radioactive 'pond' found at Fukushima

Associated Press

Monday, 16 May 2011

Japanese officials have found an Olympic swimming pool-sized pond of radioactive water in the basement of a unit at the Fukushima nuclear plant crippled by the March earthquake and tsunami.

The discovery has forced officials to abandon their original plan to bring the No 1 reactor under control. Now they will focus on how to deal with the rising pool that some experts see as a threat to groundwater and the Pacific coast.

21st Century

Ok, so I think we are in the 21st Century and I cannot believe there are still royals and such in the world. Come on, wake up peasants and such. When I see this crap in the media it makes me want to vomit. This is where inequality comes from and we should frown upon it, NOT admire it.


If children ruled the world, if before they were indoctrinated into belief systems of intolerance and hate, I truly believe OUR PLANET WOULD BE ONE OF PEACE. But, that will remain only a dream because intolerance and hatred keep on begetting. How thoroughly dismal this is. thinkingblue

I would like to direct the attention of fans of Thom Hartmann (of whom I am one) to mu website,

I feel the listeners of Thom Hartmann would be interested in the linguistic and philsophical material I right about there. Much of its ideas so too corroberate a a particular liberal/progressive perspective - or, at least, I would like to hear your commentary on it.

I thank you all in advance!

Corporations outspend taxpayers in Congress...

You may be surprised to learn that we spend about $2 billion dollars a year on our dysfunctional Congress. However, it's even more surprising to learn that corporate lobbyists spend even more to buy off our federal lawmakers.
