Criminal Charges for BP et al

Today I heard Thom asking why no CEO involved in the Gulf Oil Spill was being arrested...my thoughts were that if the SCOTUS can allow "personhood" to corporations in order to fund campaign ads, etc., then the SCOTUS should grant "personhood" to BP, et at and send them to jail...I'm just sayin' - if they want personhood then this is what you get!

The Libertarian Tea Party Crowd

Maybe naming the late '70's early '80's the "Me Generation" was a bit misplaced. That time-line would include the boomers born immediately after WWII who were deep into their jobs and professions. The name signifies that the world revolved around them. As we grey, it seems as if many of my generation are referring to a mind-set that wants some of what we created for our kids to flow our way for a change. In other words, we want some of what we gave away.

Cool solution to clean up oil...

Reminder about Disingenuous Statements

People that have no shame will say anything because we keep letting them get away with it. Too many to repeat, but when I find someone who doesn't believe someone could have said such a thing (and not have been ridiculed, impeached, etc.) - I take it to mean I need to put a reminder out.

Who remembers the "surge" in Iraq?

God Hates ... Figs?

In the new media monopoly that is our existence, we listen to the radio, we watch the television and we surf the internet (Or does it surf us? Food for thought.) with so much reckless abandon. Click here to make this person your new best friend; click here to join a group of like-minded people who also happen to hate Justin Beiber; don't turn that dial or the boredom you experience may just be your own!

Bombs Away for the oil spill

5/29 I read a couple of articles online about using nukes or regular bombs to hit the oil pipe and crush it. Apparently the Russians used this method (with nukes) successfully 4 out of 5 times - no mention of radioactivity problems, but this was done with deep-water wells. Anyone got a link to more info? Someone in the US government commented that it might work, with regular bombs, not nukes. Interesting, and scary.

I've thought from the beginning that a bomb or bombs would work - but except for these couple of articles online, I've heard nothing, on tv or anywhere.

Inalienable rights and wrongs

Inalienable rights and wrongs

Should I be allowed to sell my children into slavery? Should I be allowed to sell myself into slavery? (Libertarians and slave traders, you are not allowed to vote.)

If you say no, what principle do you base that on?

How Do We Take Back the Military From the Billionaire Owned Military Industrial Complex?

Thom plus logo Democrats (Bernie & Lee) in the senate proposed legislation saying what the Constitution already says: that Trump can't go to war with Iran without congressional authorization. Every Republican on the committee, except Rand Paul, voted against it.
