This is one of the most brilliant things I’ve ever seen.
The IRC Bible
Republican staffers on the Senate Judiciary Commitee used a back door on a Senate file server to look at Democratic members’ files for about a year, and leaked the juciest items to the press. The Boston Globe has the full story. This could get interesting…
Interesting article about American creative types moving overseas, and the decline in foreign creatives coming to America. This works out well for the Oligarchy; those creative types would just rabble rouse and cause trouble when the only jobs left are at McDonalds and Wal-mart.
At the costs projected by Alpine Power Co, $87 billion would buy 192,904 windmills. The total resulting electricity production, again assuming each windmill can run one third of the time, would come to more than 1,015 billion kilowatt-hours per year. This amounts to about more than a quarter of all U.S. electricity consumption in 2000.
this is the reasonable thing to do but look at your electricity bill, that’s a whole lotta revenue to give over for cleaner air, cheaper energy.
DENVER – The Denver City council is holding a public hearing Monday on a ballot measure that could prevent the circus from coming to the city.
If approved by voters, the measure would ban the display of exotic animals including lions, tigers and bears.
A 15-year-old girl who started a group called Youth Opposed to Animal Acts collected enough signatures to get the measure on the ballot this year.
Ringling Brothers Circus plans to fight back. They’ll be sending a clown to speak on its behalf at the public hearing.
The hearing is a chance for people to express their views. It will be left up to voters in November to decide whether to pass the ban.
I think more clowns should be sent in the name of diplomacy. A fully dressed, honkin’ nose, big shoe’d clown could settle this pesky mid east problem once and for all. A cop shoots a kid, send The Clown to those microphones, let him explain it. And these democratic debates, dress like clowns! oh what a world what a world it would be!
Some interesting suggestions for adding some much needed symbolism to the proposed World Trade Center memorial.
And the oil is going going…
nice bite sized amounts of information.
time to buy that self-sustaining farm, folks.
