    Get the economy moving by not enforcing Davis-Bacon Prevailing wage laws on Federal Projects.

    Would reduce the labor costs by 15% - 50% on each federal construction project. With labor at an average of 40%, a million dollar project would save 60K at the low end.

    Sorry, not buying it.

    When I order Sicilian I expect a 1 1/2" to 2" thick square pie, made with dough that has risen in a pan before baking, no oil - maybe a spray of non-stick if the pans are new, but not oily. Deep dish? That's for Chicago.

    Of course, where I am in in northern NJ one chooses by who's making the pies at any one of 5 pizza shops within a mile of the house (there are more than 5, but some just don't make the cut). And that is not a joke, when Mike is cooking at Bruno's then we drive the extra mile. If Angelo isn't at his namesake, we go elsewhere. Want extra thin - Mario's.

    Haven't been in a Pizza Hut or Domino's in at least 20 years; 4 or 5 years ago the wife wanted to try Pizzeria Uno - we ate a couple of bites, paid and left.

    Funny you mention that, a couple of weeks ago the wife wanted to pick up a couple items at Wal-Mart and, sure enough, one of theose 300 pound plus drivers backed up right into me. No attempt on the part of the driver to even turn his head and look behind, he just assumed that the back up beep would clear the path.

    I was able to avoid being run over and yelled out something like "Watch it" which got me a nasty look.

    A minute later I was walking down a main aisle and had to move a little to avoid a cart coming the other way. Sure enough, he was right on my tail moving at whatever the top speed is of those carts and hit me again, luckily I felt him behind and wasn't hit hard. Then he cursed me out for getting in his way.

    Told the wife that if I had been really injured the lawyers at Wal-Mart had better have proof that he was qualified to operate that damn scooter because he was a menace to everyone in the store.

    Real mess, I was flying on United out of Detroit to Chicago then back to Baltimore, scheduled departure for 7:45 am. At 7:30 or so the flight crew left the plane and advised there was a fire in Chicago, they thought at the control tower, but my flight was cancelled. Much insanity followed.

    Called the United Premiere line (I fly a lot) and tried to reschedule. The United reps in Chicago weren't even aware of anything yet. Apparently my flight was still showing on time. After what seemed like hours but was only about 5 minutes the word began to spread.The united rep got me rebooked on a direct flight on another airline within minutes.

    From the article:

    Assuming a biblical timeline, massive amounts of volcanic activity took place during the Flood year and immediately afterward. The volcanic ash from these eruptions would have blocked out enough solar radiation to cool the atmosphere for hundreds of years after the Flood waters subsided—just what was needed to form the thick ice sheets that existed during the centuries-long ice age.

    I've read the book, must have missed the part about all the ice that lasted for "Centuries" after the flood. I would have thought that someone may have mentioned it since Noah and his band of survivors probably didn't plan on winter gear when they landed.

    This quote is also in the report: "After all, Level 2 charging or not, everyone's got a 110-Volt socket somewhere."

    Sounds great until you really spend a few minutes thinking about it. First, you will need the outlet to be GFCI, that's a given for outdoor outlets today but to be certain you should probably carry a GFCI adapter. After all, you cannot be certain that the outlet has the protection and OSHA is pretty adamant on having ground fault protection.

    Second, the cord has to be protected from foot traffic as well as vehicular. Foot traffic is the main hazard, no one would ever think about running an extension cord across a driveway without properly rated covers, would they? So, if the cord runs across the ground far enough for a person to walk between the car and the outlet a cone would be necessary. Trip hazards, you know.

    Third, if there is no outside outlet, the OSHA regulations really kick in, cord protection against pinching, no running through holes without bushings etc.

    That doesn't even take into consideration that the cords have to be inspected for cuts or abrasions, tested to ensure that the ground wire is intact etc.

    It all seems laughable when you can just run an extension cord, and it's no big deal at home. At a business however there's a big liability factor. If I'm walking down the sidewalk and trip on an extension cord and get shocked, the business if going to have a long visit from the OSHA people and their EMR is going to go up considerably. Fines are a real possibility too.

    I would disagree with the Governmen't position. The value of the coins once sold is different from the value of the coins originally assigned them by the government.

    In other words, since these coins are, and technically remain, legal tender of the United States, then they are redeemable for their face value. A $20 gold piece is, as currency, worth 20 dollars, just like a 1979 penny is worth a penny even though the copper content is worth more.

    You could make a case that if they are sold for more than the value assigned that is a captial gain, but until sold they are only "worth" face value.

    The Mt. St Helens canyon was one-fortieth the depth of the grand canyon, not one-fourth.

    Even the ICR uses this number and also says: "In Spirit lake, north of the volcano, an enormous water wave, initiated by one-eighth cubic mile of rockslide debris, stripped trees from slopes as high as 850 feet above the pre-eruption water level. The total energy output, on May 18, was equivalent to 400 million tons of TNT - approximately 20,000 Hiroshima-size atomic bombs."

    Impressive. Let's compare to the Grand Canyon. The Colorado River travels over 1400 miles to the Gulf of California. The amount of rock that would need to be moved would be orders of magnitude greater, there would be hundreds of cubic miles of rock which would eventually end up in the Pacific Ocean. The amount of water required to move that much rock and disperse it into the ocean would be thousands of cubic miles of water. With that much force behind it there is no possible way that the Colorado River would make multiple "U" turns on its journey to the sea. That much force would cut a straight path with very shallow sloped sides, not deep canyons with vertical walls made of limestone, shale and sandstone.

    Curses, foiled again.....

    It does frustrate me no end when a scientist's work is carefully mined to find tiny nuggets that can be used to promote an opposite conclusion that sounds good to those who want to believe in that other outcome. Frankly, I do not usually get involved in these discussions, I just read them for amusement. Sometimes, though, you have to see where the rabbit hole leads. And when the articles date rocks at billions of years old, it's hard to figure out how you can then conclude that this is proof that they are really only 6,000 years old.

    Citing Humphreys is another circular trail leading back to a creation "science" article. However, with a little digging into his footnotes we find a small problem:

    Proceedings of the Sixth Lunar Science Conference, Pergamon Press, New York pp. 3049–3062, 1975. For example, accurate tests on sample number 62235, a basalt taken by Apollo 15 astronauts near the Descartes highlands, showed it had cooled down in a 1.2 Gauss magnetic field, twice as strong as the 0.6 Gauss field at the Earth’s magnetic poles today.

    So, the ejected basalt (ejected by a collision that formed a large crater) cooled down in a magnetic field that was twice as strong as the magnetic field is on Earth at the poles today. And, that basalt was ejected 3.6 billion years ago, although the AR /AR dating may be off by 170 million years, give or take a couple million. The temperature that was when ejected was something like 650C which caused the minor discrepancy (about 5%) in the dating.

    What the moon's former magnetic field strength was 3 plus billion years ago has to do with the Earth's today is apparently there for informational purposes.

    I am in agreement with the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster that global temperatures have been rising as a result of the decline of pirates. However, with the resurgence of the Somalis, temps are going down again. Maybe I should submit a paper for peer review?

    The footnote about the magnetic field of the moon does - eventually - lead back to an actual scientific publication. Unfortunately for the ICR, that publication dates the basalt rocks studied as being almost 4 billion years old and indicate that the dynamo that caused the magnetic field to form lasted 160 million years longer than previously thought.

    "The lifetime of the ancient lunar core dynamo has implications for its power source and the mechanism of field generation. Here, we report analyses of two 3.56-Gy-old mare basalts demonstrating that they were magnetized in a stable and surprisingly intense dynamo magnetic field of at least ∼13 μT. These data extend the known lifetime of the lunar dynamo by ∼160 My and indicate that the field was likely continuously active until well after the final large basin-forming impact. This likely excludes impact-driven changes in rotation rate as the source of the dynamo at this time in lunar history. Rather, our results require a persistent power source like precession of the lunar mantle or a compositional convection dynamo".

    How the ICR then determined from this paper that "But granting this model for the sake of argument, it still fails because any magnetism somehow produced by an impact would persist no longer than about 10,000 years. That's not nearly long enough to fit their long-age ideas." Where the 10,000 year maximum life comes from is not cited.

    Taking real science and spinning the results is only making the author look foolish, citing one's own papers is just plain dishonest.
