Thank you all for visiting! It’s time I accomplished a few things around here though so for now, it’s Summer Hiatus baby!
Until September – unless I get the itch earlier.
Enjoy! But, be careful what you say lest you end up “punished” for it.
Feds suggest anti-Muslim speech can be punished
(who the hell do these people think they are? never mind)
The Americana edition from Upstate NY.
That (“trust the government”) and apparently the WSJ Washington bureau chief is an idiot is what we got out of the secret Holder meeting.
US attorney general Eric Holder told journalists on Thursday that he would change the way the Justice Department handles investigations that involve reporters and not repeat searches that have raised concerns about freedom of the press, the editors said.
After a meeting that other media outlets boycotted because of its secrecy, the journalists who did attend said they were encouraged by officials’ expressions of regret, though one said the Justice Department still has a long way to go to understand how journalists work.
“There was a commitment to change the department’s guidelines for handling cases such as these and a renewed commitment to support a federal shield law for journalists,” said Gerald Seib, Washington bureau chief of the Wall Street Journal.
Because if you people at the Federal level refuse to release actual information, then I’m bound to believe these kinds of stories.
As they refuse to bow down in at least this one instance.
So sayeth the government.
Because they don’t really have anything better to do and because they are so good at becoming intimately involved in your life.
Under their bill, HHS would publish a report on “Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans” every 10 years. The report would contain exercise guidelines, which would be promoted by federal agencies that promote good health.
The guidelines would be based on “current scientific and medical knowledge,” and would include options for specific groups, including children.
Right – like you didn’t think this would happen.
Just wait until the Supreme Court determines this can become a requirement based on the Interstate Commerce Clause, because we all know there is a direct correlation between the exercise you people do in Kentucky and the rate I have to pay for my insurance.
This was an interesting read about the tar sands up at Fort McMurray in Canada.
It’s more informative than political, but it ends with this lovely quote regarding those who don’t see why everything can’t be “green”.
They don’t want more oil in the world; instead, they desire to replace oil with the mythical energy sources of their choice or, if that is not possible, they want to lower total global energy consumption — the poor be damned. Could things be better? Yes. Are there costs to maintaining civilization? Yes. But we could also stop buying oil from sadistic medieval regimes run by family crime syndicates. I’d take a 15 percent increase in carbon emissions in exchange for North American energy independence.
Yes, we’re going to assert eminent domain in order to buy a department store so that a mall developer can go forward redeveloping the local mall which will include a Sam’s Club and a Whole Foods.
Why? Because Dillard’s owns it’s own property and wrote a contract saying it had the right of refusal to any redevelopment and they don’t want to play with the new guy.
Between fracking and this old Longmont has become a hotbed.
