Sen. Brown: Job over health?

Senator Brown says he is for keeping children safe and says he if for jobs. So he votes against EPA updating clean air standards. So if people are too ill to work in factories spewing air pollution that makes them too ill to got to work – hmmm.
If worker cannot go to work 10 days a year because she has to take her children to the doctor because of ill effect of pollution… Hmmm. Ya think that Brown has thought his position through?

Scott Brown Plays the Victim

ads and a website blasting one Republican and one Democratic Senator each for voting to block the EPA from updating clean air safeguards
Scott Brown
“As a father, I would never do anything to put my two daughters or anyone else’s children in harms [sic] way.” And that one of his most “solemn responsibilities” is to “protect children.”

Lots of “talk” about what Pakistan “should/had to” have known – through rear-view mirror. Could be true but… Didn’t Unabomber hide in plain sight for a number of years? Years gone by – shouldn’t have authorities known for years where John Dillinger was, or Jesse James, or any number of horrible people it took years to find? Years ago, the Mafia “accountant and pay master for Washington, DC was on the same floor in an office building also used by the FBI for training. Hiding in plain sight doesn’t mean conspiracy “had” to exist. http://amplify.com/u/a11eup

Remarks on the Killing of Usama bin Ladin

Hillary Rodham Clinton

All over the world we will press forward, bolstering our partnerships, strengthening our networks, investing in a positive vision of peace and progress, and relentlessly pursuing the murderers who target innocent people. The fight continues, and we will never waver. Now I know there are some who doubted this day would ever come, who questioned our resolve and our reach. But let us remind ourselves, this is America. We rise to the challenge, we persevere, and we get the job done.

EU Anti-Roma Violence Flares Anew

You’d think that right wingers would find new victims for focusing their fear based violence but Roma, Jews, Muslims and Gays still have to watch their backs because no one else will – or so it seems. Before we humans destroy the planet, you think we will ever stop looking for someone to blame all our fears and self-hate on?

A New Wave of Anti-Roma Violence in Hungary

Photo Gallery: Hate in Hungary
The Hungarian village of Gyöngyöspata has once again become home to violence between right-wing radicals and its Roma populace. Dozens of extremists marched into the town on Wednesday, one day after provoking brawls with the Roma who live there. It is the continuation of a trend.

Genetic Modification Meltdown in nuts!

Forget that pistachios are not native to Australia. The lesson is – you plant genetically uniform (aka GMO or monopoly Monsanto seeds) plants, you risk huge, massive, really big crop failure. 50% down and half of those inedible – those are big numbers.

What would the result be if 50-75% of the world’s alfalfa, wheat, rice, or oat crop failed in one season? Can you imagine at least 1 billion dying of hunger and another billion or so from war, revolution, and genocide?

OK, OK. I know. You want to go back to watching your reruns of Seinfeld.

Australia Pistachio Disaster Hints at Agricultural Breakdown

The culprit was anthracnose, a fungal disease best known for infecting mangoes. It raced through the industry, resulting in a harvest some 50 percent smaller than expected — and half of that was inedible.

“The wide cultivation of genetically uniform plant populations fosters rapid evolution among the pathogens,” said Scot Nelson, a plant pathologist at the University of Hawaii. “Because of this greed, new pathogens or newly reported host-pathogen combinations arise almost daily around the world.”

S&P Expert? At what? Covering their…?

September 8, 2008 S&P said they were thinking about dropping Lehman Brother’s from A1 rating to A. Lehman Brothers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on September 15, 2008. So we should trust their judgment, as much as we trust all the other high fliers of Wall Street? How many people are still out of work from the burst housing bubble that they rode as well as any did? How much money have they returned to anyone for mistakes made? Weren’t they co-conspirators to the biggest fraud in last 50 years?

Thank you, Standard & Poor’s

Standard & Poor’s may know nothing that I couldn’t find out, but it certainly knows more than I’ve bothered to find out. (And how about you?) And how its experts assess all this publicly available information is surely worth knowing, isn’t it?

In my “state” “birthers” are aliens

In my state of mind, the birthers now led by wanna-be-still-famous Trump seem to be from some alien place where logic is absent and denial has replaced reality – all perfect for a new Donald show! But read this article if you need further proof.

The birthers’ constitutional illiteracy

For the birthers, the translation of “natural born citizen'” is simply “those born inside the United States”. To them, anyone born outside the United States is ineligible for the presidency. They are wrong.

The Naturalisation Act of 1790 provided that “the children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond Sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born Citizens.”
