[LISTEN] Red Alert’s Francesca Chambers discusses student loans and top conservative colleges on ‘The Michael Koolidge Show’

[LISTEN] Red Alert’s Francesca Chambers discusses student loans and top conservative colleges on ‘The Michael Koolidge Show’: Red Alert Politics editor Francesca Chambers was on “The Michael Koolidge Show” earlier this month to talk about student loans and the 20 most conservative colleges in the United States.

In discussing one of the biggest topics for young conservatives this summer – the student loan interest rate debate – Chambers said that there was much ado made about nothing, considering the majority of Americans who have federal student loans wouldn’t have been affected by the rate hike at all.

Armed German Police Abduct Four Homeschooled Kids

Armed German Police Abduct Four Homeschooled Kids: Global outrage is mounting after an armed squad of 20 German police and social workers abducted four homeschooled children from their loving parents’ arms, relying on a Nazi-era prohibition on home education that has been used to ruthlessly terrorize embattled homeschooling families in Germany for years. The latest move, which experts in international law have condemned as a “shocking” violation of fundamental human rights, follows controversial efforts by the Obama administration to deport another persecuted German home-educating family granted asylum in the United States by a federal judge in 2010. Hundreds of other families have fled persecution in Germany to other European nations, virtually all of which permit homeschooling.

Archaeology in Europe News: 12/01/2012 - 01/01/2013

Archaeology in Europe News: 12/01/2012 - 01/01/2013: Researchers have now assigned a date to the sensational find of a rowboat. The dating cements the small vessel’s position as Denmark’s only preserved medieval rowboat.
Archaeologists in the Danish town of Vordingborg have every reason to be excited.

During a recent excavation of the moat surrounding the Vordingborg Castle ruins, they came across a fallen castle tower and a rowboat from the Middle Ages. The latter has never previously been found in Denmark.

Lars Sass Jensen, who headed the excavation, says that a dating of the boat’s wooden planks reveals that the little vessel was in its prime around the year 1400.

Weekend weather could foil Rim Fire progress - SFGate

Weekend weather could foil Rim Fire progress - SFGate: A Hotshot walking the fire line on August 29, 2013. The wildfire threatening Yosemite National Park is spreading further into the US tourist landmark, officials said as they battled to stop it clouding a holiday weekend. Efforts to contain the so-called Rim Fire, which has grown to become California's sixth biggest wildfire ever, were also being boosted by the deployment of a military drone approved by the Pentagon. The fire, which now covers more than 192,000 acres, or 300 square miles, and is 30 percent contained, has also threatened San Francisco's water supply, due to ash falling on a key reservoir.

Famous Rousseau Quotes - Philosophy Paradise

Famous Rousseau Quotes - Philosophy Paradise: I know that [civilized men] do nothing but boast incessantly of the peace and repose they enjoy in their chains.... But when I see [barbarous man] sacrifice pleasures, repose, wealth, power, and life itself for the preservation of this sole good which is so disdained by those who have lost it; when I see animals born free and despising captivity break their heads against the bars of their prison; when I see multitudes of entirely naked savages scorn European voluptuousness and endure hunger, fire, the sword, and death to preserve only their independence, I feel it does not behoove slaves to reason about freedom.

Yes, Obamacare Could Affect You—Even if You Already Have Health Insurance - Hit & Run : Reason.com

Yes, Obamacare Could Affect You—Even if You Already Have Health Insurance - Hit & Run : Reason.com: Obamacare’s defenders, including President Obama, have recently begun making an argument intended to comfort Americans who might be concerned about the law: It simply won’t be a big deal for those who already have insurance. If you’re part of the majority of individuals who get health insurance through an employer, the law’s only affect will be to increase some of the benefits that are available to you, and ensure that you can get coverage if you lose your job.

Eternal return - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eternal return - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Eternal return (also known as "eternal recurrence") is a concept that the universe has been recurring, and will continue to recur, in a self-similar form an infinite number of times across infinite time or space. The concept is found in Indian philosophy and in ancient Egypt and was subsequently taken up by the Pythagoreans and Stoics. With the decline of antiquity and the spread of Christianity, the concept fell into disuse in the Western world, with the exception of Friedrich Nietzsche, who connected the thought to many of his other concepts, including amor fati.

In addition, the philosophical concept of eternal recurrence was addressed by Arthur Schopenhauer. It is a purely physical concept, involving no supernatural reincarnation, but the return of beings in the same bodies. Time is viewed as being not linear but cyclical.

Colorado Teen Designs Robotic Arm With 3D Printing - Slashdot: "A Colorado teenager has used 3D printing to create a robotic prosthetic arm that is fully functional and costs less than $500 to make. At TedxMileHigh in Denver, Colo., 17-year-old Easton LaChappelle demonstrated his robotic arm, and how he constructed the arm to keep costs low. 'So in the end, I built this robotic arm up to the shoulder which was extremely strong,' LaChapelle said. 'It could toss balls to you, it could shake your hand, it could pretty much do anything a human could if you program it correctly.'"

Fifty years after the March on Washington, mystical memories of that seminal moment in the civil-rights era are less likely to focus on movement politics than on the great poetry and great music.

The emotional uplift of the monumental march is a universe of time away from today's degrading rap music—filled with the n-word, bitches and "hoes"—that confuses and depresses race relations in America now.

Latest result of global warming: cooler temperatures | WashingtonExaminer.com: It’s the coolest summer in a century, or at least the government is reporting the fewest number of 100 degree days at U.S. HCN (Historical Climatology Network) stations. Yet I’m sure that somewhere someone is arguing that this is a result of man-made global warming–or, er, climate change. For years global warming alarmists have claimed that any unusual or unpleasant weather is the result of global warming, even as, inconveniently, global temperatures seem to have plateaued or fallen over the last 15 years, contrary to global warming theory.

However, as Citi's FX Technicals group notes, for the 3rd time in the last 17 year period we may be looking at a 4-year-4-month rise in consumer confidence before a turn lower again; and in spite of the Fed's rosy forecasts (and the market's expectations), we should be careful being too quick to believe that the sluggish economic dynamic that has 'dogged us' for the last 6 years is yet fully behind us.

Healthcare Fascism with Lyndsy Fonseca

Healthcare Fascism with Lyndsy Fonseca: Some time ago I invented the phrase "fascialism" to describe the American system of political economy. Fascialism means an economy is part fascist, part socialist. Economic fascism has nothing to do with dictatorship, militarism, or bizarre racial theories. Fascism is a brand of socialism that was the economic system of Germany and Italy in the early 20th century. It was characterized by private enterprise, but private enterprise that was comprehensively regulated and regimented by the state, ostensibly "in the public interest" (as arbitrarily defined by the state).

Rush Limbaugh Reveals What ‘A Lot of Democrats’ Are ‘Privately’ Telling Him… | RedFlagNews.com




-- Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Monday said “privately, there are a lot of Democrats” that tell him they would “love to be able to stop Obamacare.”

“Folks, let me tell you something,” he began during his radio show. “You know, privately there are a lot of Democrats that tell me that they are just distressed over what Obama has done to the health care industry and to jobs. They are afraid to say anything about it because of recriminations, because this regime fights back. I mean, this regime does not take internal criticism at all, just like they try to eliminate all conservative opposition.”

Does Favoring Free Enterprise Mean Favoring "Business"? - Jeffrey A. Tucker - Mises Daily

Does Favoring Free Enterprise Mean Favoring "Business"? - Jeffrey A. Tucker - Mises Daily

American political rhetoric seems to operate on a regular cycle, like a clock, which is why it seems lately like we are reliving the Clinton years.
The story goes like this. A Democratic administration with lefty ideas gets elected, pushes hard for a series of goofy reforms like protosocialized medicine, which prompts a backlash and thereby a rethinking among the rulers, who then tack to the right and become "centrist" by praising the great contribution that the business sector makes to American life.
Most of these grandiose shifts — Obama is going through one now — are illusory and pointless, like slapping a new color of paint on a car that is traveling in one direction in order to fool people into believing that it is a different car going in a different direction.

Wild Wild West (WWW)

Wild Wild West (WWW): In the past decade the internet has surpassed all expectations and changed the lives of us all. The World Wide Web holds little or no safety for the end user. Very much like the Wild West in the 1800s, the opportunities and possibilities are endless; however, so are the dangers. Everyone has to watch his/her back because of the unscrupulous gangs of identity thieves and scammers that are just waiting for you to walk into a trap. Online self-defense is a necessity.
