Shepard Ambellas | More and more cities are now experiencing what are known as “brownouts” or “blackouts”.
Andrew Gavin Marshall | Conventional wisdom inflates the classical liberal concept of higher education as a social good, one which may be funded by the state in order to promote the general well-being of society, as inherently cultural institutions designed to raise the intellectual, spiritual, moral, and philosophical standards of society.
Sartre | The official position on the EPA website has one singing the Amerika version of “Don’t cry for me Argentina”. EPA Proposes First Carbon Pollution Standard for Future Power Plants.
Global Elite: When he planned this year’s World Economic Forum, the annual gathering in Davos, Switzerland, Klaus Schwab stressed “collective sacrifice.” Apparently the keepers of the attendees’ budgets didn’t get the memo. Davos, of course, has long since become the place for jet-setting power brokers to attend, or to be seen attending. If you can get invited, then you’re somebody incalculably important. Swank hotel settings await, as does a
Excerpt from: Is Davos Relevant?
There is nothing sacred about American birthright citizenship. But there also is no pressing fundamental reason to change more than a century of constitutional law. The Republican-led rebellion rising out of state legislatures to redefine the 14th Amendment and end guaranteed citizenship to anyone born in the country is a distraction of epic proportions. It recklessly challenges the national government’s power to decide who is an American, and the

Ok. I’ve been acting like a political coward, and need to fix that. Here is my feeble attempt.
I am a Conservative with definite Libertarian leanings. If the Tea Party were a political party it would be closest to my views. Mostly because the Tea Party philosophy emphasizes liberty first, well ahead of government intrusion.
Most of what I hear on the news is Obama’s failure to deal with the oil disaster (granted I am partial to Fox). I disagree.
On the one hand conservatives bark about government intrusion. It appears that the talking heads prefer government intrusion into BP business over liberty. I don’t. Whether it is Mitt Romney pontificating, or Bobby Jindal taking charge I find it offensive that they demand the president to something, Anything, to show leadership.
In other words the conservative aspirants to the White House are prepared to temporarilly give Obama any authority to do “something”. Sorry, but I want neither of them, the pretend conservative or the lying liberal expanding their power into private matters (I will address that in a moment). The price of oil is never sufficient lower the value of liberty.
Now, as to BP. Yep, sure as the sun rises every day they are probably substantially to blame for the disaster. They ought to pay. But not at the hands of a president’s discretion, rather at the hands of an honest court. I believe that within this whole mess there is a partially hidden cause that the politicians evade like they avoid accountability for decisions they make. That cause is years of government intrusion into private business for the purpose of protecting the environment. Those regulations make virtually every business venture more expensive and far more complicated.
In those complications tremendous risk of flaws are introduced. Many of the flaws we see in automobiles are associated with those elements required by some government officials pandering to a special interest group, not America as a whole.
BP is not the sole culprit. Our own government interlopers share some degree of blame, maybe a major share.
Should BP pay a price for the damage caused? Yes, without any hesitation. But it should be determined through an honest and just court. Now the court we have today! Both BP and the presumed victims should be entitled to a speedy trial under the Constitution. The current system is not just, because IT drags proceeding on for endless months and years. Everyone suffers.
Rather than seeking out ways to give Obama and his comrades more power we ought to be focused upon fundamental changes to our Legislative, Executive and Judicial practices. Fortunately we have a wonderful example that was in place for a few decades after 1787, until corrupt men began molding it to meet their deception rather than embracing it in order to circumvent all deceptions.
My perspective is that we still have candidates that swear with crooked tongues. They swear at other and swear they are better.
We will know they are better when they speak of principles and demonstrate them. The ability to judge is actually quite easy.
That’s the Way I See It.
