    I guess it’s not just violent too. Recently a Brady Board member opined “Angry white men are losing their influence,” and then proceeds to go on a racist and sexist diatribe the likes of which is hard to be believed. Is Tam an “angry white man?” Is Jennifer? Is my co-blogger? The cornered cat? Are the large percentage of my fellow NRA Election Volunteer Coordinators who are women? Is Pastor Ken? On the academic side of the Second Amendment, is Professor Johnson? Professor Cottrol? And let’s not forget about our women who toiled tireless on behalf of the outcome in...

    After a hard-fought race in a newly formed Arizona congressional district, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner today, becoming the first openly bisexual member of Congress. Sinema, a former state senator, joins at least five openly gay Democrats who were elected to House seats, and Tammy Baldwin, who became the first openly gay candidate elected to the Senate. When asked by ABCNews.com how it felt to be the first openly bisexual member of Congress, Sinema said, “We’ve made history, and we’re proud of that, but what I am interested in is making history by making things better for the...
  • Urine-powered generator unveiled at international exhibition

    11/12/2012 6:56:29 PM PST · by jakerobins · 63 replies
    Four African girls have created a generator that produces electricity for six hours using a single liter of urine as fuel. The generator was unveiled at last week's Maker Faire in Lagos, Nigeria, by the four teens Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, and Faleke Oluwatoyin, all age 14, and Bello Eniola, 15. So how exactly does the urine-powered generator work? •Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen. •The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder. •The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which...
  • 17 Afghans beheaded by the Taliban because they danced at a party

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ^ | Monday, August 27, 2012, 8:51 AM | unknown
    KABUL, Afghanistan - Insurgents beheaded 17 civilians in a Taliban-controlled area of southern Afghanistan, apparently because they attended a dance party that flouted the extreme brand of Islam embraced by the militants, officials said Monday. The killings, in a district where U.S. Marines have battled the Taliban for years, were a reminder of how much power the insurgent group still wields in the south - particularly as international forces draw down and hand areas over to Afghan forces. The victims were part of a large group that had gathered late Sunday in Helmand province's Musa Qala district for a celebration...

    A commentator on MSNBC has said white people want to end abortion, because “they’re trying to build up the” white race. On Saturday, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry reviewed the declining portion of the electorate made up by white people and asked her panel about “ the demise of the white man.” “It’s been weird to watch white people report on this,” said CBS contributor Nancy Giles. “When you just showed that graph of the decline of the numbers, I thought maybe that’s why they’re trying to eliminate all these abortions and stuff. They’re trying to build up the race.” The...

    Realville, USA ^ | Nov 12, 2012 | Ombud
    Romney probably used a lot more than these, but here are a few of his biggest losing strategies I came up with: 1. Nominate a candidate who doesn't represent the core values of your party. Mitt Romney is not now, nor has he ever been, a conservative. Of course, next to Barack Obama, Mitt Romney looks like a conservative, but then next to Obama, Francois Hollande would look like a conservative. 2. Suppress your own vote. The Romney team invested millions of dollars, and gambled election day success, on a program called ORCA, which was designed to centralize (centralize?) the...

    Here's the TV Pool Report verbatim on Defense Secretary Panetta's comments about Benghazi, spoken today in session with reporters aboard his flight to Perth, Australia: “One of the things that we are doing right now is we are involved in an assessment btwn DOD and the state department to look at the embassies in that region and what additional steps need to be taken in order to ensure the security of our embassies. So we do need to look at how we can A, improve security and 2, be able to effectively respond if there are any threats. With regards...

    e American energy miracle continues to make waves as more and more people realize just how big it is. The FT reports: The US will overtake Saudi Arabia and Russia to become the world’s largest global oil producer by 2017, according to the International Energy Agency, in one of the clearest signs yet of how the shale revolution is redrawing the global energy landscape. This marks the first time the IEA, the developed world’s most respected energy forecaster, has made such a prediction. It underscores how the drilling boom that has unlocked North America’s vast reserves of hard-to-get-at oil and...

    PRICE, Carbon County — They're gearing up again at the state Department of Workforce Services to help scores of miners who received pink slips this week from UtahAmerican Energy Inc. "The coal mines are great jobs," said DWS workforce development specialist Nicole Steele. "But over the years, they do go up and down," Steele said. "It's kind of a roller coaster and everybody's aware of that." Roller coaster or not, the reason given Wednesday for the reduction of 102 jobs at the West Ridge Mine near East Carbon threw just about everyone for a loop. They were necessary because of...

    -snip- Luis, our previous caller, talked about Univision. For four years Univision did nothing but bash every potential Republican candidate. It didn't matter what they thought of Obama. The alternative was unacceptable. Now, this is why, by the way, I cringe when the Republicans and these brilliant consultants at the end of every election think that we have to become more like Democrats to win, which is essentially what they're saying. And look, I don't think I can ask this question too often. It is said now that the Republicans need to move significantly toward the direction of amnesty and...

    The Financial Markets Have Yet To Begin Factoring In What Lies Ahead The stock market may have found a temporary bottom as investors try to step away from the election and focus on the economy. The problem is that despite the election being over, the two dynamics are more interdependent now than they were before the Obama wins. The really big picture is that daily life and the financial markets are now becoming one single entity. The days where markets were focused on factoring in the future are now past, at least for now. And making matters worse, we don't...
  • Was Petraeus Forced Out To Silence His Account Of Benghazi killings? (friends say yes)

    UK Telegraph ^ | Last updated: November 12th, 2012 | By Con Coughlin
    As they say in politics, timing is everything, and the shock resignation of David Petraeus as CIA director raises serious questions about whether this was genuinely a resignation caused by his affair with his biographer, or whether it was a hatchet job by Barack Obama's administration to prevent him giving evidence this Thursday to the Senate Intelligence Committee. The general's friends tell me that his sudden departure from Langley has nevertheless raised suspicions that his political enemies in the Obama administration – and there are many – used his dalliance to force him out of the CIA before he could...
