Huff Po Linked To Reason.com

Back before the ‘net got irretrievably crazy I used to correspond with Ariana Huffington about the Drug War. She was putting on a drug war conference around 2000. Shadow political conventions she called them. I think she was still a Republican back then. In any case the link was to this Reason article: The Literal […]

It Is an Armed Doctrine

From the comments at Samizdata. Paul Marks August 29, 2014 at 7:51 pm The Islamists are what Edmund Burke called an “armed doctrine” – they make no secret of the fact that (like the Jacobins and Nazis and Marxists) they seek to spread their system by force – all around the world. Peace is not […]

Peacemongers Are More Dangerous Than Warmongers

Obama was going to avoid being another George Bush. He has succeeded. Obama has made no effort to hide his antipathy to open-ended engagements in the Middle East, despite potent but limited campaigns against Al-Qaeda in Pakistan and in Libya. Well he got us out of Iraq. And thereby opened the gates of hell. There […]

Tar and water

P.J. O’Rourke (in a Reason article) offers a very cogent explanation as to why libertarianism is such a hard sell. A prominent libertarian, O’Rourke also discusses the difficulties in selling a political philosophy devoted to taking power away from politicians. “If libertarianism were easy to explain and if it weren’t so easy to exaggerate the effects […]

Racism Rears Its Ugly Head

Evidently over 1,400 girls have been raped in Britain over the course of a few years. Why was nothing done about it by the authorities? They feared being called racist for singling out Asians. Which Asians Chinese? Burmese? Well no. Muslims.

Republicans Run Against Themselves

You can read the whole post here. I thought I’d just leave you with the tagline: Instead of accusing their Democratic opponents of being Republicans, the GOPers might want to take a moment to ponder why that charge is such an effective negative attack?

They Lied About The Beatings

There is no racism among our police. Well maybe just an isolated incident. Well maybe just a few isolated incidents. Well maybe just a lot of isolated incidents. But they are isolated. And rare. And isolated. When asked if he did something to threaten the police officers, he responded, “No, actually I was pinned to […]

Jerusalem Liberation Front

Harm Us: Our War is For Liberating Jerusalem, Not Lifting Blockade. Hamas’s true objective in Operation Protective Edge – and negotiations that may follow – is in “liberating” Jerusalem from the Jews, a Hamas spokesman stated earlier this week. The folks in Harm Us must be really delusional. Either that or some one is forcing […]

Creating A Headwind

The Republicans hope to take the Senate. Colorado is one of the States up for grabs. Cory Gardner, the Republican candidate for the Senate, voted to continue DEA raids in States that have legalized medicinal cannabis. Last week, we shared news about the U.S. House voting to defund DEA medical marijuana raids in states where […]

This Has No Bearing On It

Bearings: The Achilles Heel of Wind Turbines. A few years ago, I used to know a senior wind turbine engineer. One evening, over a few beers, he told me the dirty secret of his profession: “The problem is the bearings. If we make the bearings bigger, the bearings last longer, but making the bearings larger […]

Also included is our latest FISH Forth development software which you can get for free here. Referenced in the campaign is our plan to develop a set of stepper motor boards for Desktop CNC and 3D printers. […]

How To Rule The World

From a comment I made here. (revised and edited) Thing is, Drug Prohibition was built on a similar tissue of lies but previous to the Global Warming scam. The lies have been similarly debunked. But Prohibition lives on. Maybe they (the Powers) thought – “well if we have pulled this off, we can pull that […]

Who’s winning?

This is messed up.   As of 16 August 2014     Areas controlled by the Islamic State  [shown in red] It seems that when you fight and take out one enemy in the Mideast, another, bigger enemy springs up and takes the old enemy’s place.What the fuck are we supposed to do? Make an alliance with Iran?Reminds […]

Carrier Ops

I was visiting Micahael Totten’s and some one left the video in the comments.

Disillusion With Obama

From the comments: “I was OK with the lies about Obamacare. I liked the fact that the IRS was persecuting Obama’s political opponents. I didn’t care that he was arming Mexican drug cartels. I could understand how his foreign policy betrayed our friends and sucked up to our enemies, and got nothing in return. I’m […]

Latest Reports From Ferguson

Ferguson Cop Who Killed Michael Brown Was “Beaten Very Severely” Before Shooting. Really? Really! Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations, suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket) fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before firing […]

Hamas Has Some Very Good Friends

Well it looks like the US government is going to sell some weapons to Qatar. At a time when Hamas continues to fire salvos of rockets into Israel while rejecting a ceasefire proposal, the United States has finalized a deal to provide the Palestinian terrorist group’s leading supporter, Qatar, with weaponry worth $11 billion. The […]

OK, so what happened in Ferguson? Isn’t it about time we knew?

Earlier I saw some fascinating information posted at Gateway Pundit stating that the police officer who killed Michael Brown was severely injured during the altercation: Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis […]
