  • A godless nation: Doomed to fail (Mychal Massie says U.S. trusts handouts of man over hand of God)

    WND ^ | December 03, 2012 | Mychal Massie
    The truth is a hard thing to hear and even a more bitter pill to swallow. But until we face the truth, we are doomed to sink lower into the abyss as a society. The truth is that a godless nation is a nation doomed to fall. We as a nation have slowly accepted and pompously come to believe that wisdom begins and stems from us. Secularism is the view that all things religious should be excluded from daily public living, specifically pertaining to political and social concerns. Thanks to secularism, the mindset today is that God and religious opinion...
  • Stratosphere Targets Deep Sea to Shape Climate

    North Atlantic ‘Achilles Heel’ Lets Upper Atmosphere Affect the AbyssSept. 23, 2012 – A University of Utah study suggests something amazing: Periodic changes in winds 15 to 30 miles high in the stratosphere influence the seas by striking a vulnerable “Achilles heel” in the North Atlantic and changing mile-deep ocean circulation patterns, which in turn affect Earth’s climate. “We found evidence that what happens in the stratosphere matters for the ocean circulation and therefore for climate,” says Thomas Reichler, senior author of the study published online Sunday, Sept. 23 in the journal Nature Geoscience. Scientists already knew that events in...

    The race is on to reach the deepest place in the ocean: the Mariana Trench, which plunges 11km (7 miles) down. Fifty years after it was first conquered, four teams are vying to return. It will be an epic journey that will push submersible technology to its limits and put the lives of those piloting the vessels at grave risk. Each team has a unique approach, but over the course of the next year only one will be crowned the winner in this journey beyond the abyss.
  • Bill expanding local tax authority is step toward fiscal abyss

    Contra Costa Times ^ | 6/4/11 | Contra Costa Times editorial
    CALIFORNIA'S system of state and local taxation is overly complex and often dysfunctional. Instead of devising reforms to improve the way governments raise revenues, state Senate leader Darrell Steinberg has come up with legislation that would make taxation decidedly more complicated, unfair and costly for Californians. His Senate Bill 653 would vastly expand the taxing authority of California's 58 counties, county school districts and community college districts in the state. If SB 653 becomes law, counties and school districts would be allowed to impose a local personal income tax up to 1 percent of state taxable income. The bill authorizes...

    One-Sided Capitalism Dictator Hu's visit brings to mind an important contradiction that needs some very serious mental ruminations. On the one hand, we have a communist country that is showing dramatic economic success and on the other, we have a “capitalist” country falling into an abyss of debt and pleading for the commies to bail them out from an economic cataclysm. The most inefficient and evil system out-performing the most efficient and morally good system demands an explanation...and here it is: We have long ago forsaken capitalism in favor of a system that is so bad and so inefficient that...

It was placed in the water on 22 August 1954 at approximately 17 meters depth, and stands 2.5 meters (8.5 feet) tall. Professor Guido Galletti cast the original from the inspiration of the first Italian to use SCUBA gear, swimmer/diver Duilo Merchant. Galletti wanted a symbol to inspire all who explored and loved the sea in 1954. In 1961. (click on any images above to enlarge it) In this video...

    As the United Nations Climate Change Conference enters its second week in Copenhagen, California will send a delegation to showcase the state’s own climate change policies. Since his election to office in 2003, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has made global warming and climate change a cornerstone of his gubernatorial legacy. When he addresses conference delegates this week, Schwarzenegger will boast that under his watch the state has implemented some of the strictest and most comprehensive environmental regulations in the world. But delegates won’t be presented with the true cost of Schwarzenegger’s war on global warming. Californians know better than anyone else...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Obama administration has helped pull the U.S. economy back from the "abyss" with aggressive efforts to spur growth and stabilize financial markets, a top White House adviser said on Monday. Defending policies that Republicans have attacked as ineffective, National Economic Council Director Lawrence Summers argued measures put in place by the administration, including a $787 billion stimulus package, had helped turn back the deepest U.S. recession since the Great Depression. "Thanks largely to the Recovery Act, alongside an aggressive financial stabilization plan and a program to keep responsible homeowners in their homes, we have walked a...

    WASHINGTON – Halting the financial sector's death plunge is arguably the government's most measurable achievement this year. Yet as President Barack Obama observes the one-year anniversary of Lehman Brothers' collapse, his administration's increasingly sunny assessment of Wall Street's rebound faces a hard sell. The rescue effort, initiated by his predecessor, was expensive, and it bailed out the very institutions that the public blames for the crisis. Small banks are still failing, the institutions once considered too big to fail are putting on weight once again, and Obama's main pledge — a more watchful eye on Wall Street — hasn't taken...

    There is no question that the state is faced with one of the most dire financial situations in its history. But that seems to be about where the agreement ends. There are numerous theories, scapegoats and explanations offered for how it is the state finds itself $40 billion in the hole. And there are just as many differing ideas about how the state should work its way out of this mess. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has proposed a collection of tax increases and spending cuts to bring the state back toward fiscal solvency. But along with the short-term problem, the governor...

    SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger swept into office in 2003 promising to end the state's pattern of "crazy deficit spending," cut up the government credit cards for good and force the state to finally live within its means. So much for that. Experts say the state's spending habits are no more restrained than they were when Schwarzenegger arrived in Sacramento four years ago. The budget has grown by a staggering 40%. Costly programs have been launched. And spending has continued to outpace tax receipts year after year -- even years when housing and tech booms led to cash windfalls. Now...

    "Big Love," HBO's new take on a fictional polygamous family in the suburbs of this city, was on the television. The Viagra-popping Bill Henrickson (Bill Paxton) was thrashing in bed with Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin), the youngest of his three wives. The five women watching the show — covering their eyes during the sex scenes, chiding the competitive wives, urging Bill to take control — were critics with special credentials: a current or past polygamous marriage. And despite the show's flaws, these women called "Big Love" a cultural benchmark, one with the potential to cast a warmer light on their lives....

    The disturbing truth about Sweden’s moral decay should serve to sober us from our own complacent drunken stupor. I recently had occasion to discuss religion and politics (dangerous ground, I know) with a Swedish mother of two visiting America. Sonya (not her real name) is a manager at a large investment house in Sweden. Her politics may be described as fiscally conservative and socially liberal. In a word, fashionable. We chatted about the Swedish economy, city life versus country life, and agreed that high taxes were hard on families. So much for the preliminaries. Then we dove into the issue...

Arnold Schwarzenegger cooked his political future some more this week, recklessly endorsing the anti-illegal-immigrant Minuteman Project vigilantes and helplessly watching as a public poll showed him losing a third of his popularity in three months. Maria Shriver was on the warpath about her husband’s downward spiral, urging wholesale firings at the top of Team Arnold and consulting such unlikely counselors about saving her husband’s career as Dick Morris, the Republican who engineered Bill Clinton’s revival before becoming Fox’s favorite Clinton hater.
