Holt on anthrax mailings: Investigate the investigators

Until the US holds a “broader inquiry” into the investigation of the 2001 anthrax mailings, US House Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) won’t be satisfied that there isn’t a mass killer on the loose in his home town.

Holt — whose 12th Congressional district of New Jersey includes a postal facility from which some of the anthrax letters were mailed during the 2001 biological terrorism scare — says that the FBI “suffers from a credibility gap” because of the many mistakes made by the bureau during its long investigation into the first serious case of biological terrorism on American soil.

Health Care Tyranny by 13 Obstructionists

For those still clinging to quaint notions of the American ideal, these have been a faith-shaking 10 years. Just as evolutionary science once got in the way of creationists’ catechism, so has politics now undermined patriots’ naive belief that the United States is a functioning democracy.

The 21st century opened with a handful of Supreme Court puppets appointing George W. Bush president after he lost the popular vote—and we all know the costs in blood and treasure that insult wrought. Now, the decade closes with another cabal of stooges assaulting the “one person, one vote” principle—and potentially bringing about another disaster.

Is Michelle's fashion fraud continuing?

the fashionable first lady the world’s been waiting for…waiting for her to pay for her fashions
February 26, 2009 The media’s favorite punching bag, Sarah Palin, seems to be criticized for everything she does, short of breathing. No scratch that, people have criticized her for that, too. But, for some reason, Michelle Obama is *the First Lady we have been waiting for* and can do no wrong…even if she is wearing clothes she didn’t pay for. Instead of criticism for wearing clothes she didn’t pay for, she is deemed a fashion icon....Michelle Obama is not paying for her clothes. She is not reporting that she is taking these clothes for free. She is not being forced to pay for her clothes, or report them as income or gifts for tax purposes.

Are sunspots changing and will that take us to an Ice Age?

With 690 spotless days so far in this minimum as of June of this year, that is hardly outside of the range of previous minimums but it ain't over and there is no sign it will be anytime soon. The characteristics of the sunspots are unusual and don't look good to this interested lay person. Is this a lead in to a Maunder Minimum type Little Ice Age or is this the beginning of the big one? Time will tell.

The big story here is not the characteristics of sunspots changing but rather the changing tenor of the professional scientific community to stand up for true scientific debate that has been suppressed for so long. Far too long, in my opinion.

25 July 2009 Every single business that has failed, required capital or bankrupted, is owned either directly or indirectly by FMR. FMR is calling in cash. FMR is the root cause of the financial crisis. They got busted when this sick lady came back begging for help at the Social Security Administration. And they forgot not all sick people are stupid.

One cold July

A cruel summer has brought Manitoba's third-coldest July on record.

According to Environment Canada, only twice before has any year's seventh month in this province been as chilly as the stretch of 31 days we've just passed.

And Manitoba has also completed its third run of eight consecutive months with colder than average temperatures, says meteorologist Natalie Hasell.

The Only Thing Weirder Than The Birthers....

The only thing weirder than the Birthers are the anti-Birthers, who blame the Birthers for being conspiracy theorists yet actively feed the conspiracy by refusing to call for President Obama to release his birth certificate.

Imagine For An Instant

Imagine for an instant that for 4 weeks you huddled in a school that was later hit by bombs,rockets and morters,that you weren’t afraid but you did not want to die.

Imagine for an instant hearing your mother land screaming and tearing at her flesh while she was being torn and battered…

Imagine for an instant that on the news you were the enemy,you were the insurgent yet you had no means of rebellion – you had no America funded weapons,you had no shelter or aid…

You have nothing.

U.S. Recession Worst Since Great Depression, Revised Data Show

The first 12 months of the U.S. recession saw the economy shrink more than twice as much as previously estimated, reflecting even bigger declines in consumer spending and housing, revised figures showed.

The world’s largest economy contracted 1.9 percent from the fourth quarter of 2007 to the last three months of 2008, compared with the 0.8 percent drop previously on the books, the Commerce Department said yesterday in Washington. Gross domestic product has shrunk 3.9 percent in the past year, the report said, indicating the worst slump since the Great Depression.

Big Content: ludicrous to expect DRMed music to work forever

Rightsholders can't understand why people who bought DRMed music only to have the authentication servers go dark might demand the right to crack the DRM. Big Content believes the idea that rightsholders "are required to provide consumers with perpetual access to copyrighted works" is laughable.

Skype could be cut off for good over dispute

Skype might have to shut down because of a dispute over the core technology used to make the internet telephone system work.

EBay, which paid $2.6 billion (£1.6 billion) for the voice-over-the-internet system in 2005, is facing a court battle with the original founders of the company who retained the rights to the technology at the heart of the system.

EBay admitted in a regulatory filing that it might have to close down the company. It said it was trying to develop alternative software but if that did not work, or if eBay lost the right to the original software: "Skype would be severely and adversely affected and the continued operation of Skype's business as currently conducted would likely not be possible."

New York Fails to Hit 90 Degrees for June, July for Second Time

The high in New York City today is forecast to hover around 80 degrees, making it only the second time on record that June and July temperatures failed to reach 90, the National Weather Service said.

Central Park thermometers haven’t touched 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32.2 Celsius) since April, and if this holds through today the month would be one of the 10 coolest Julys on record, according to the weather service records.

The only other time a June and July passed in the city without temperatures reaching the 90s was 1996.
