    Research ^ | February 14, 2011 | John Dwyer and Laura Hood
    [British] Government Chief Scientific Adviser John Beddington is stepping up the war on pseudoscience with a call to his fellow government scientists to be “grossly intolerant” if science is being misused by religious or political groups. In closing remarks to an annual conference of around 300 scientific civil servants on 3 February, in London, Beddington said that selective use of science ought to be treated in the same way as racism and homophobia. “We are grossly intolerant, and properly so, of racism. We are grossly intolerant, and properly so, of people who [are] anti-homosexuality...We are not—and I genuinely think we...

    Citizen Activist Grates On State Over Traffic SignalsFebuary 7, 2011 BY BRUCE SICELOFF - Staff Writer RALEIGH -- David N. Cox says he was merely exercising his right to petition the government, but a state Department of Transportation official has raised allegations that Cox committed a misdemeanor: practicing engineering without a license. Cox and his North Raleigh neighbors are lobbying city and state officials to add traffic signals at two intersections as part of a planned widening of Falls of Neuse Road. After an engineering consultant hired by the city said that the signals were not needed, Cox and the...

The demands of the people include "the downfall of the regime of "Hosni Mubarak and his ministers." Strategic goals include "to take over important government building." It also includes tips for fighting against riot police. Read more:

Anyway, the radical amnesty element of the Democrat party is up in arms at that defeat. Yesterday, we had DADT get repealed. The repeal wouldn't be so bad, but that lowlife Lieberman is putting an amendment for the 2011 Defense Authorization Act Wednesday that will repeal U.S.C. 10 625, making sodomy in the military o.k. Aside from the whole 'these undermine America thing' (and I know they do), these two items have...

Just 4 eye-popping numbers in the Reid "omnibus" spending bill say it all: *1,924 pages long at $575.13 million spent per page *$1 billion -- for pre-funding of the un-Constitutional Obama/Pelosi/Reid health care takeover *6,488 pork-barrel earmarks identified so far Think about this. After failing to complete its budget for yet another year, this failed Senate is pushing this $1.1 trillion monstrosity of deficit spending. As Harry Reid arrogantly said, "We're not through.

The references to the Republican Party in this article only reflect my own personal experiences and affiliation. For the past many months I have been attending various Tea Party and other similar...

    Rarely has the political differences dividing our country been so stark. Certainly, the antebellum period prior to the Civil War was such a time. The Civil War itself remaining a clear reminder of what happens when political policies and actions are taken to extremes. Two very different interpretations of the 10th Amendment, protectionism of northern industry the Confederacy viewed as biased against southern agriculture, and a popular abolitionist movement in the north proved to be a volatile combination. The rest is, well, history. (Please, no flames - I know the causes of the Civil War were more complex and varied....

The child had grown up and just moved out, and now Ms. Kremer was filling her time with two blogs—one on gardening, one on politics. "I had this empty space in my life," Ms. Kremer recalls. Ms. Martin, a software manager by training and part-time blogger, was...

    WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court on Wednesday temporarily stalled the landmark court decision allowing openly gay recruits to be accepted into the military. In response to an emergency request from the government, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco issued a one-page order allowing the Pentagon to continue enforcing the "don't ask, don't tell" law, which bars openly gay, lesbian and bisexual service members. The decision returns the law to the status quo before a U.S. District Court judge in California prohibited its enforcement. It will be in effect while the court...

Late last month when the RNC announced that it would cut its get out the vote (GOTV) program, conservative groups around the country adjusted and decided to run their own GOTV programs. But what does the RNC’s decision really mean? “The Republican National Committee has decided against sending Congressional staffers out on the campaign trail for traditional get-out-the-vote efforts, focusing its resources instead on mailings and other last-minute pre-election efforts, the committee confirmed Tuesday.” Lately, it has seemed like the RNC has gone the way of the Obama administration and ignored the will of the people.

    Jewish protests against the the United States are usually polite affairs while Muslim protests often involve effigy-burning, shoe-stomping and other forms of acting out. However, a protest planned for 7:00 p.m. Monday outside the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv could be a sign that Jews have begun taking some pages from the Muslim protesters' book. The event's organizers say they have prepared a large effigy of U.S. President Barack Obama, which protesters will hurl shoes at to protest the way Obama is “stepping all over us.” “The current American government’s feeble Middle Eastern policy has ultimately caused a substantial amount...

    Oh, you ignorant Americans with your venal patriotic chants of “USA, USA” at sporting events. Your bellicosity isn’t patriotism, it’s propaganda and lowly militarism… so says David Green, University Administrator and member of the University of Illinois Institute of Government & Public Affairs. Green’s poisoned pen letter to American patriots was published by the Daily Illini, an “independent newspaper” at the U of I, and features every manner of attack on America. Green’s vituperation covers the gamut of anti-Americanism: America is “imperialist,” she is unconcerned over the deaths of Muslims, America is”nativist,” and patriots are prone to “obnoxious, fake-macho, chicken-hawk”...

    Islam and the American Public By J.R. Dunn Questions are flying hot and heavy as to why anti-Muslim fervor is appearing now, nine years after 9/11. Observers note correctly that there was no backlash following the attacks. (The sole victim was an unfortunate Sikh, Balbir Singh Sodhi, murdered by an ignorant cowboy in Arizona. Other claimed incidents actually involve robberies and the like.) Why should the threat arise today? There's no real mystery. The same, identical process occurred in the 1940s regarding the communists. The blame lies not with Americans in general, and not with everyday Muslims, but with incompetent...

The aerial assaults have become a permanent fixture of television and media coverage of wildfires in recent years as planes and helicopters drop big loads of red chemicals over blazes....

There are dark and powerful forces on his side which have collaborated with those powers within the Church, to destroy the Church.

    Rappers in 2010 don’t know what the ‘F’ to do. They are being let down by the first president they actually went to the voting polls for, and they are speechless. In fact, their silence is consent. Isn’t it great to know that of all presidents, Obama is the one who finally shut these foul-mouthed-usually-criminals the hell up! Ha! Gotta love that! Sometimes (OK – most of the time), I just can’t help wishing that musicians would shut up about politics. Either they stand blindly behind a disaster like Obama (Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffet, and way too many others) out...

    As I made my way on an April morning from Harvard Square to a Tea Party Express rally on the Boston Commons, a quotation and a question wound together in my mind.

    Liberty Juice(Credits go to Peggy Noonan for the title.) It’s been almost eighteen months since the beginning of my involvement with the Tea Party movement, and it seems as good a time as any to step back and review as we move into the 2010 election cycle. I’ve spent much of my time in this past year and a half traveling, training, learning, researching, speaking to groups and talking to people both in the movement and outside of it, but it wasn’t until I was asked to speak to a local professional club that I began trying to draw these...
