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.
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 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.
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.

big fan of Thom Hartmann !!!
intelligent and thought provoking
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........
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.
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?
It is through voting our country stays free.
The right to vote retains our freedom and liberty.
Since 1776 many have died to defend this right.
Vote and you're a soldier in our democratic fight.
