What a piece of work is a man - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
I will tell you why; so shall my anticipation
preuent your discouery of your secricie to the King and
Queene: moult no feather, I haue of late, but wherefore
I know not, lost all my mirth, forgone all custome of exercise;
and indeed, it goes so heauenly with my disposition;
that this goodly frame the Earth, seemes to me a sterrill
Promontory; this most excellent Canopy the Ayre,
look you, this braue ore-hanging, this Maiesticall Roofe,
fretted with golden fire: why, it appeares no other thing
to mee, then a foule and pestilent congregation of vapours.
What a piece of work is a man! How noble in
Reason! how infinite in faculties! in form and moving
how express and admirable! In action how like an Angel!
in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the
world! the paragon of animals! and yet to me, what is
this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me; no,
nor Woman neither; though by your smiling you seeme
to say so

NONPOINT LYRICS - Broken Bones:

You forget I got this far without you
I'm not the person that you think I am
The life I want to lead needs no approval
From someone who will never understand

You're forgetting my broken bones
Forgetting I'm not alone
Hard to stand alone
When this feels like home
In this crowd

Just because you lived a little longer
Doesn't mean your will is any stronger
You forget that all these scars remember
Every time you say I need to change


You're forgetting my broken bones
Forgetting I'm not alone
Hard to stand alone
When this feels like home
In this crowd

The decisions that we make, to stand alone

You're forgetting my broken bones
Forgetting I'm not alone
Hard to stand alone
When this feels like home

Ventura County Reporter - A new oxymoron: liberal tolerance

Ventura County Reporter - A new oxymoron: liberal tolerance: "While the most important news of the past few weeks has centered on the November elections, as it should, nervous leftists have been running around like modern day Chicken Littles in an attempt to discredit any moderate or conservative voice during this current fall. Liberals love to tell you that they own the corner of tolerance. They love to tell you how accepting they are, how open-minded they are, and how compassionate they come across. But how do you explain NPR’s recent firing of political pundit Juan Williams? Williams is a moderate African-American voice in a world where moderate to conservative minority voices are not encouraged. Williams recently suggested that he feels a bit nervous when a Muslim in full Islamic attire boards an airplane with him. Oh, the humanity! That comment cost him his 10-year tenure at NPR, prompting his boss, Vivian Schiller, to suggest he see a psychiatrist. How nice of her to tolerate his personal feelings."

Heaven Shall Burn - Against Bridge Burners Lyrics

Heaven Shall Burn - Against Bridge Burners Lyrics:

So much terror I have seen
Fought endless years for their revenge
Now I know this struggle ended nowhere
I am remembering with shame

I feel my time has come to fight for understanding
I'm not defeated, I am not beaten
Throw into the darkest dungeon, I pay for my forgiving thoughts
They may preach about the same convictions
But they will distort these high ideals

No ferocity will unsettle my beliefs
I am not taken by the enemy
Mechanisms of stagnation
As agitators rule the land

They want to make us live in fear
Yet all they get are unshed tears
They want to make us live in fear
Locked up in gloom for years
Try to silence my voice, but I am not beaten!

No brutality will unsettle my beliefs
I am not taken by their felony
Mechanisms of stagnation
As agitators rule the land

And a thousand miles away from home, I meet my expelled brothers
Captured in a secret prison, isolation, regression, indignity for years

No atrocity will unsettle my beliefs
I am not taken by this agony
Mechanisms of stagnation
As agitators rule the land

China's Unsustainable Development | IdeaFeed | Big Think: As China's economy slows in response to a decrease in global demand, its government officials are looking for ways to maintain (the appearance of) growth, which is an imperative in Chinese political life. That often entails local governments borrowing huge sums of money to finance construction projects. But since since localities are prohibited from borrowing directly from banks, public land is often offered as collateral to "off-the-books investment companies with little oversight." It is the Chinese version of America's sub-prime mortgage crisis.

The Durbin amendment granted regulators the authority to establish price controls on what banks could charge merchants that accepted their customers’ debit cards as payment. The resulting regulations, which took effect Oct. 1, limit what banks can charge merchants to no more than 24 cents per debit card transaction.

Thousands of government retirees across country return to work to collect public paychecks

, On Saturday October 1, 2011, 12:16 pm EDT

DALLAS (AP) -- Double-dipping -- the well-established practice of public workers collecting government pensions and salaries at the same time -- has become a hot topic for lawmakers struggling with strained budgets.

Even as some states have begun curbing the practice, a review by The Associated Press found tens of thousands of state and public school employees drawing government salaries along with their pensions. In five states alone -- California, New York, Texas, Florida and Michigan -- at least 66,000 government retirees also receive taxpayer-funded paychecks.

One is engineer Maury Roos, who retired from the California Department of Water Resources with an annual pension of more than $113,000. He returned part-time within weeks.

Roos says he uses the extra money to go to engineering conferences and the state gets an experienced engineer.

    Hello! Get the unions and government out of the free market and watch prices of American products come down along with more people working to make those products, and more people buying them. That's growth.

    Maybe I’m missing the point. I’m a federal employee. The government gives me 1% of my pay under FERS. They match up 4% of what I put it. I can’t start collecting FERS until I’m 59 ½ year olds. The earliest I can collect SS is at age 62 with major restrictions or at age 67 without so many restrictions. How many companies offer matching contributions? How many people work for companies for the companies perks? After working for the government for so many years in DOD, we need more government workers to keep the cost down. If we contract out all DOD work, IMO we would be paying 3 times as much as what we pay now and with less quality or work. Not going to mention the health problems a lot of us have after working for DOD.
    We can blame the government for our problems. We can blame Bush, we can blame Obama or even congress, but we as US citizens are the real blame for this mess. When you say I will never buy an American made product, you’re saying screw the United States. My job must buy US built components when all possible. Cost a little more, but for each US made product we buy, someone somewhere keeps a job. So when you look in your driveway at your Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Nissan, Lexus, Acura, etc. that’s where the problem start. Help your country and your country will help you.

    Again, we have a choice where we spend our money in the private sector. Don't like the policies or methods in a certain corporation? Don't buy their product or service. Don't like government policies or methods? Pay for them or else! How can you not see the difference?

    I know of plenty of cases in the private sector company that I worked for (DD) where retirees came back to work on contract while collecting their company pension. When the business that I worked for was sold to another company, I retired from the first (collecting my company pension) and continued working in my same job for the new company (collecting the same salary) until I retired from them. Double dipping was very very good. It was like a 45% salary increase for me. Plus, I continued to accrue a new pension with company two. It's not just the public sector where this kind of double dipping can occur. It should happen to everyone.

    It's not about working after you retire. First, MOST private sector employees don't get a guaranteed pension if anything at all. Second, the public employees are able to retire with a large pension and benefit package funded by TAXPAYERS at a very early age. When they re-apply for and get the same job they just retired from, they shut out younger more enthusiastic workers who will earn a starting wage. The problem is early retirement. If they are still able to and want to work, why allow them to retire with their pension? The earlier they retire, the longer and therefore more the taxpayers have to pay the retirement package. I am talking about many public employees here in WI doing just this with a wink wink, nod nod from the government supervisors. Again, all this crap
    is paid for by taxes with no regard for efficiency. This is what anyone who votes against the public
    establishment wants to change, and why respect for public employees is diminishing. Now, I deplore the private companies getting big subsides from government and wasting our money.

The PJ Tatler » Washington Post Now Literally Looking Under Rocks in West Texas to Find Dirt on Perry: "Seriously. Here’s the Post story, which once you get past all the history they try packing into it that has nothing at all to do with Rick Perry, is about a hunting lease that Gov. Perry’s family used, and which once had an offensive name that his family did not give it, but which was unfortunately somewhat common once upon a time. Once Perry’s family leased it, they painted over a rock with the offensive name on it to cover it up, and eventually turned the rock over to cover it further. So the Post has devoted its resources and space to tell the world about…a rock way out in West Texas."

Obama's Teleprompter just not working for him any more.<br>Gaffes come almost every day.:


Saturday at he Congressional Black Caucus confab he muddled "Jews" for "janitor" and on Sunday, President Obama gave Gov. Rick Perry heat for being a climate skeptic, calling him "a governor whose state is on fire, denying climate change." But, Obama seems to be denying the conclusions of his own government scientists when it comes to the cause of the Texas droughts.

But, earlier this month, Dr. Robert Hoerling, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) research meteorologist, who served as the lead author of the U.S. Climate Change Science Plan Synthesis and Assessment, clearly and emphatically dispelled the notion that climate change has anything to do with droughts in Texas.

"This is not the new normal in terms of drought. Texas knows drought. Texas has been toughened on the anvil of droughts that have come and gone," Hoerling said.

"This is not a climate change drought," he concluded.

So, why is Pres. Obama 'anti-science'!?

Climate Depot's round up of latest science on droughts rebukes Obama's claims.
