Humans Aren't Worst Polluters in History, Not Even Close | Experts' Corner | Big Think

Humans Aren't Worst Polluters in History, Not Even Close | Experts' Corner | Big Think: Will we ever atone for the dirty sins of our blue-green cousins and give the Earth totally back to the anaerobes? Probably not. It will take a far more concerted pollution effort than the comparatively paltry one we are currently mustering.

Humans Aren't Worst Polluters in History, Not Even Close | Experts' Corner | Big Think: Excess oxygen also reacted with the atmosphere's methane, turning it into a weaker greenhouse gas: carbon dioxide. With a diminished ability to retain heat, the planet entered an ice age that lasted upwards of 300 million years!

Latest Obama Outrage: More People on Food Stamps Than Are Working Full Time - Money Morning

Latest Obama Outrage: More People on Food Stamps Than Are Working Full Time - Money Morning: One thing we do know for sure is one third of our nation is now receiving Subsidized Food Assistance.

These programs are extremely expensive and the cost is increasing daily. In 2012 the bill to taxpayers paid was a staggering $114 billion.

» More People Getting Government Food than Actually Working » The Loft -- GOPUSA: I guess this new fact should not be surprising: there are now more people getting food aid from the federal government than are working in the private sector. As more people become increasingly dependent on government, we will continue to see growing indications that the old America -- the one in which people worked hard to build their own futures -- is fading away.

As reported by CNSNews.com, "The number of Americans receiving subsidized food assistance from the federal government has risen to 101 million, representing roughly a third of the U.S. population."

Pakistan gets $5.3 billion IMF loan | GlobalPost: Pakistan's new government on Thursday agreed to a $5.3 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), according to BBC News.

The loan will be released over three years, said the Associated Press, thereby allowing regulators to monitor the money's use.

“Healthcare doesn’t really cost that much.” Posting surgery prices online in OK, Docs save patients 85% | AgainstCronyCapitalism.org

“Healthcare doesn’t really cost that much.” Posting surgery prices online in OK, Docs save patients 85% | AgainstCronyCapitalism.org: You know why healthcare costs so much? It is completely opaque. It has become totally separated from the free market and price signals. As a result people suffer. People go bankrupt. People don’t get the treatment they need.

Insurance companies have grown fat partnering with government and are about to grow even fatter under Obamacare. These companies revel in government induced opacity. It makes them lots and lots of money. What the current medical establishment fears is not government, but a free market and truth in pricing.

(From KFOR.com)

“When we first started we thought we were about half the price of the hospitals,” Dr. Lantier remembers. “Then we found out we’re less than half price. Then we find out we’re a sixth to an eighth of what their prices are. I can’t believe the average person can afford health care at these prices.”

Their goal was to start a price war and they did.

Egypt’s young Brotherhoods break away from old leadership - Alarabiya.net English | Front Page: Al Arabiya

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood suddenly fell from grace last week after decades of underground work to reach the heavens. Today, the mighty movement appears to have begun a phase of disintegration, or renewal as some would argue.

More than 500 young Brotherhoods have decided to break away from the group, holding its senior hawkish leaders responsible for what they see as its failure.

The young members of the group have established a movement they called “Brotherhood without Violence,” seeking to steer the group back onto a course drawn for it by its founder Hassan al-Banna.

Why America is in Decline

Why America is in Decline: Economic freedom allows us to choose how to produce, sell, and use our own resources, while respecting others’ rights to do the same. Living in a society with high levels of economic freedom leads to higher incomes, lower poverty, less unemployment, longer life expectancies, and cleaner environments, among a host of other benefits. More economic freedom improves well-being and leads to a higher quality of life.

'Pothole Robin Hood' Steals Asphalt, Fixes Potholes - ABC News

'Pothole Robin Hood' Steals Asphalt, Fixes Potholes - ABC News: A man dubbed the "pothole Robin Hood" is under police investigation for taking asphalt from the city of Jackson, Miss., and filling in potholes on city streets.

Ron Chane admits that he takes the asphalt and repairs potholes, and then signs the filled-in holes with the message "citizen fixed," he told ABC News.

"It's sort of like Robin Hood. Once we saw that people were appreciating what we did, we went out again and made a goal of fixing 100 potholes. We've actually filled 101 potholes, so our mission has been completed," Chane said.

"Jackson is like any other state capital, but we've got a big infrastructure problem," Chane said.

"It's hard to have a good city without good infrastructure," Chane added. "And our city simply does not have the budget."

“Consistent with my long-standing position that no continuing resolution or other appropriations measure should fund Obamacare, I am introducing a bill to permanently defund the law.
The Administration's recent announcement to delay the onerous and unpopular employer mandate until after the 2014 election, coupled with its announcement to delay income and health status eligibility requirements in favor of an honor system for the most expensive entitlement for our generation, confirms what has been obvious from the start—this law is a colossal mistake.
Yesterday, all 46 Senate Republicans called on President Obama to permanently delay the law. This legislation would guarantee that result by ensuring not one more taxpayer dime is wasted in its establishment.
The Administration's selective enforcement of Obamacare's implementation is no indication that the law is going away. To the contrary, it demonstrates the President's unyielding determination to force the unworkable law on the American people.
Delaying only one aspect of this tangled mess leaves Americans holding the tab for an irreparably broken law they do not support. Moreover, it leaves in motion many of the most egregious parts of the law, ensuring they will take root in just a few short months. This is untenable.
I agree with the lead Senate author of Obamacare, Democrat Senator Max Baucus, that Obamacare has become a "huge train wreck."
President Obama wants to delay the employer mandate – giving large businesses a temporary reprieve from part of Obamacare's job-killing impact – but he is unwilling to give hardworking American families the same consideration. But everyone, not just large corporations, deserves to be spared being forced to participate in the Obamacare "train wreck."
Moreover, in light of the admitted misconduct of the IRS – targeting those whose political views differed from the President's – we cannot trust the IRS to implement Obamacare. The American people cannot trust the IRS to create and enforce the largest federal database in history, containing the intimate details of our personal healthcare matters.
And we cannot just wait for this law to implode under its own weight. The clock is ticking, and the time to act is now – Obamacare full implementation is set for January 1, 2014, but the enrollment for new entitlements starts on October 1, 2013.
We must remain vigilant in making the argument that Obamacare harms economic growth, disrupts the doctor-patient relationship and tramples on our liberties. But it doesn't end there. We must guarantee that American taxpayers do not spend one more dime to implement Obamacare.

Five Things You Weren't Told In Politico's Immigration 'Slow Death' Report

Five Things You Weren't Told In Politico's Immigration 'Slow Death' Report: 2. Polls Prove a Huge Majority of Hispanics Agree with the GOP on Border Enforcement: A poll released Tuesday shows that a full 60% of registered Hispanic voters…

…support granting legal status to those already here only when the 90% goal is reached[.] … The '90% goal' … is the target of ending 90 percent of current illegal immigration through border security and interior enforcement.

This poll is perfectly in line with a ABC News/Washington Post poll that Politico itself reported on back in April. In that poll a full 61% of Hispanics said they supported "securing the border."

The GOP house can focus on border enforcement and make nearly two-thirds of Hispanics happy. That sounds like good politics to me. Moreover, Republicans can easily make the case to Hispanics that, as is, there will likely be no border enforcement.

One of the major sticking points with the Senate's immigration reform bill is that based on past history, no one honestly believes the border will be secured. Which brings me to number three…

Mujahideen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mujahideen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Afghanistan's resistance movement was born in chaos and, at first, virtually all of its war was waged locally by regional warlords. As warfare became more sophisticated, outside support and regional coordination grew. The basic units of mujahideen organization and action continued to reflect the highly decentralized nature of Afghan society and strong loci of competing mujahideen and tribal groups, particularly in isolated areas among the mountains.[37] Eventually, the seven main mujahideen parties allied as the political bloc called Islamic Unity of Afghanistan Mujahideen.

Mujahideen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mujahideen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Iran

While more than one group in Iran have called themselves mujahideen, the most famous is the People's Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI), currently an Iraq-based Islamic Socialist militant organization that advocates the overthrow of Iran's current government. The group also took part in the 1979 Iranian Revolution, Iraq-Iran War (on the side of Iraqis), and the Iraqi internal conflicts.
Another mujahideen was the Mujahedin-e Islam, an Islamic party led by Ayatollah Abol-Ghasem Kashani.[51] It was a component of the National Front (Iran) during the time of Mohammed Mosaddeq's oil nationalization, but broke away from Mosaddeq over his allegedly unIslamic policies.[52]

Delaying the Employer Mandate Requires Delaying All of Obamacare | Cato @ Liberty

Delaying the Employer Mandate Requires Delaying All of Obamacare | Cato @ Liberty

The IRS has announced it will postpone the start date of Obamacare’s “employer mandate” from 2014 to 2015. Most of the reaction has focused on how this move is an implicit acknowledgement that Obamacare is harmful, cannot work, and will prove a liability for Democrats going into the November 2014 elections. The Washington Post called the decision a “fresh setback” and a “significant interruption” to the law’s implementation. John McDonough, a prominent supporter of the law, observes, “You’ve given the employer community a sense of confidence that maybe they can kill this. If I were an employer, I would smell blood in the water.” When a die-hard Obamacare supporter like Ezra Klein says the employer mandate should be repealed, clearly things are not going well.

Yoga Fans Donate $170,000 to Smithsonian's First Ever Exhibit on Yoga Art - YogaDork

Yoga Fans Donate $170,000 to Smithsonian's First Ever Exhibit on Yoga Art - YogaDork: You did it, yogsters! About 600 of you generous donors helped raise more than $170,000 for the Smithsonian’s ”Yoga: The Art of Transformation” – with a bit of help from Whole Foods who matched donations and gave a total of $70,000.

The Smithsonian’s first ever crowdfunding campaign began May 29th with a funding goal starting at just (just) $125,000. When the deadline arrived on July 1, they had already surpassed that at $129,000 and decided to extend the campaign for another week. Apparently, that’s when all the wealthy yoga fans decided to jump on board, raising the total another $40k in just a few days.

The exhibit which is set to open at the Sackler Gallery October 19th was to go on regardless of the extra money. So what will they do with all that dough?

Problem is, Wells Fargo — which now owns Wachovia, which had previously acquired Central Fidelity — claimed it had no record of these checks and refused to honor them, even after a court ordered it to.

The company expects that 380 employees will be impacted by the shut downs. Those eligible will receive severance which FirstEnergy expects will total about $16 million.

FirstEnergy credited the proposed deactivations to the high cost of complying with federal regulations, specifically the Environmental Protection Agency's Mercury and Air Toxics Standards.

According to a recent analysis by the Pew Institute, since 2007 when there were a record 4,316,233 births, the number of births has been steadily declining, with 4,007,000 births in 2012 - the lowest number since 1998.

Obama Touts 'MyUSA' Plan to Make Govt. More Like Google

Obama Touts 'MyUSA' Plan to Make Govt. More Like Google: President Barack Obama announced Monday that he will bring more Silicon Valley tech experts into his White House to help devise a new government system called MyUSA to deliver “a smarter, more innovative and accountable government."

MyUSA will, among other things, auto-fill citizens’ personal information on government forms and provide real-time tracking of benefits.

Obama’s initiative carries echoes of Vice President Al Gore’s 1993 “reinventing government” plan that purportedly applied private sector solutions to public sector problems.

Whether Obama’s attempt to reboot public perceptions about his Administration’s bureaucratic failures and inefficiencies will succeed now five years into his presidency remains to be seen.

Obamacare called ‘A fiasco for the ages’ – Obama’s Iraq War | AgainstCronyCapitalism.org

Obamacare called ‘A fiasco for the ages’ – Obama’s Iraq War | AgainstCronyCapitalism.org: There was hope from many that Mr. Obama would “grow into the office.” It is clear now that he has failed to grow. Obamacare was rammed through Congress, against the will of a majority of Americans at the time, and still now, in haste and hubris. He has hurt this country deeply. Obamacare is a disaster which has grave implications for this nation even if it was marginally functional. But it’s clear now that it’s not functional in the least. It’s the kind of scheme thought up by kids at model United Nations conferences. It has no grounding in reality and implementation appears to be impossible. Not that billions won’t be wasted in an effort to save face.

Why I Will Not and Cannot Support the Senate “Gang of 8” Bill

Why I Will Not and Cannot Support the Senate “Gang of 8” Bill: by: Congressman Paul Gosar

Today the Senate passed what I consider to be one of the worst bills I have seen since Obamacare. Riddled with pork, rewarding law breakers and making transparently false promises, I cannot support this bill.

I have stated before, I do support reforming our skilled and unskilled labor visa programs. Our farmers in Yuma desperately need a system that provides reliable labor. I intend to get them that reform.

Obamacare Subsidies Doled Out Using 'Honor System'; Billions in Fraud Feared

Obamacare Subsidies Doled Out Using 'Honor System'; Billions in Fraud Feared: Obamacare’s delayed implementation of the employer mandate means health insurance exchanges and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will be unable to determine whether individuals are eligible for taxpayer-funded subsidies and will instead now rely on the honor system. Experts say the shift could result in billions of dollars in waste, fraud, and abuse.

Simple Simon (nursery rhyme) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Simple Simon met a pieman,
Going to the fair;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
Let me taste your ware.

Says the pieman to Simple Simon,
Show me first your penny;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
Indeed I have not any.

Simple Simon went a-fishing,
For to catch a whale;
All the water he had got,
Was in his mother's pail.

Simple Simon went to look
If plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much,
Which made poor Simon whistle.
