    given this government’s lack of defense funding, Alaska is in jeopardy and it is time to citizens to be prepared.

    "We could go back and reinstate the ballistic missile defense program that was taken out," Dick Cheney said. "Obama took it out to appease Putin." Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., agreed that "we should definitely revisit missile defense." Ditto Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and John McCain, R-Ariz.

    "The countries of the world have dragged their feet so long on global warming that the situation is now critical, experts appointed by the United Nations reported Sunday, and only an intensive worldwide push over the next 15 years can stave off potentially disastrous climatic changes later in the century."

    Sure, we pay their salary - but they also pay into Social Security and all the other give away funds.

    I think what you mean is that some of these folks are necessary expenditures (Maybe not). Otherwise, your logic, in the context of this article is flawed. The government workers produce nothing that generates a net profit in our GDP. Their salary is an expense to the private sector as is the taxes they pay out of that salary.

    If I have to give the master $1,000 dollars and $100 dollars goes to a government employee and they have to send $10 dollars to the master for their part, then I have paid the master to hire someone to pay him again under the guise of an improving job market.

    On the other hand, when one company spends $1,000 on a purchase to produce a marketable asset (either service or product), then the investment garners a profit while also providing goods and services to consumers. That model sustains itself as long as there are consumers that demand the product or service. For the purposes of this article, I believe the numbers (makers Vs. takers) is relevant. We could do far better with far fewer government workers.

But overall, he is an equal opportunity antagonizer. My personal rub with him is that he calculates his perceived bias when taking a position on things. In some cases he plays the middle hard.

    Rory and the old man both should be prosecuted.

    As is happening today. The government handed down edicts, laws and rules that made citizens criminals by non-compliance. This rancher was way ahead of his time in fighting the injustice 30 years ago. Our fore fathers started their "criminal enterprise" against the King in the same fashion.

    Rosa Parks ignored law when she refused to go to the back of the bus (if you can call those laws back then). I would offer that our founding documents expect the citizens to rise up against tyranny when it comes. And I would argue that the first chips to be placed are ignoring tyrannical rule, especially when it is fed to us under the guise of the common good.

    Rory “Do you know who I am” Reid represents the Chinese Solar Panel company that wants the land.

    I now do actually affirm and believe this is the motivation. I have only done about 2.5 hours of research on this entire history of this. While it sounds like something out of a movie, all the pieces fit nicely for what is happening today. But the tortoise side of the issue is not relevant any more. Forgive me is some of the time frames are a bit off. As I mentioned, I am still researching this. Corrections are welcomed.

    I encourage FReepers to thoroughly educate themselves on this (as most do anyway). But here is the skinny of it.

    Some argue the Fed owns all land not previously purchased. This is not documented beyond treaties, agreements or ancient purchasing, sale and lease rights regarding individual citizens or the use of the land. In unmanaged territories/land, land is for public use. The Bundy's have been publicly using the land in question since before Nevada was even a state. There was no Federal involvement. 30 years ago, it seem,s the feds needed an excuse to collect fees and the desert tortoise found its way on an endangered species list. Whether the tortoise was actually even endangered was questionable back then. But we had just "saved" the bald eagle (or were well on our way). So what could it hurt. It was decided that cattle was bad for the habitat and somehow this could be mitigated by having cattle ranchers pay fees to let their herds graze. Sound familiar? Think carbon credits. Again, there was no evidence that suggested the relatively few cows in the large expanse of territory had any detrimental habitat to the endangered species. In fact, there was and is some research that proposes the opposite is true.

    Originally, the Bundy's fought the ruling, lost and got a permit. With a nose under the tent, the fed started playing with fee structures. The Bundy's continued the fight and refused to pay along with some others. That was almost 30 years ago. Along the way, the fed did arrest someone as a token. Then the fed backed off and quietly continued a slow roll in court.

    The issue got aggressive and picked up steam again a few years ago when the Harry's son got involved in an investment that needed the land for a solar farm. Harry pushed through some legislation to grease the skids. No mention of the tortoise during those proceedings. I wonder why.

    The solution to this ordeal is to have the "endangered species" removed from the list. The grazing fees again have no purpose as the land is not managed otherwise.

    Tenacious 1 to MarMema

    Here is something that goes unmentioned. Why would the states voluntarily “give” their land to the government and let the government collect permit fees for the effort? Deserts don’t need to be “managed”. The endangered species BS, which has mostly been a ruse starting with the Buffalo and working it’s way through and including newly discovered species of insects has been used as a federal weapon to confiscate land, power and wealth.

    Remember the family that was finally forced to sell their redwood forest so that the forest could be saved (Northern California)? They owned and logged and cultivated that redwood forest for almost 150 years. In the 80s some lady climbed a tree and stayed there for a month to prevent loggers from cutting down their own tree. In 1998 the state and fed purchased the forest from the logging family (under duress) for $1 Million. Almost 10 years later, most of it burned in a forest fire because the dead wood was not being cleaned from the forest any longer.

    Anything the fed touches turns the shit. They couldn’t manage a ham sandwich if Emeril Lagasse was their chef.

    Tenacious 1 to Jim Robinson

    I wish the media would get out the whole story on this. They start with the Rancher refusing to pay federal grazing fees. They leave out that the fed confiscated his land, of which has been in the family for generations, years ago and then turned around and told him to pay for his cattle to graze on it. The land was confiscated and dedicated to the fed in order to protect a tortoise (and something else). But in the same vacinity, the fed allowed commercial development on the same land that was previously undeveloped.

    The family refused to pay the fed to use their own property and refused to recognize the feds ownership of the property. So 20 years later, the fed decides to enforce the fees retroactively and confiscate the cattle that graze there.

    What recourse did the family have? You can’t very well take the government to court or file a law suit against the fed or the BLM. Property rights are (or were) a founding fundamental right established by our founding fathers. It’s one of the things our freedom and existence is based on.

    Tenacious 1 to seacapn
    It’s a matter of rate. Chicago has around 2.8 million people within city limits while Indy has fewer than 850,000. The murder rate in Indy spiked last year and appears to be spiking even higher this year, indicating that an already-bad murder situation is becoming even worse.

    It is concerning for sure. It's also a bit inexplicable (speaking from a local citizens perspective). It's not lack of police (that rarely has anything to do with murder rates) as cases are getting closed at a normal rate. I haven't heard of our judicial system releasing more criminals. I don't know about any correlation between the homicides and potential transients involved. But I do know that there have been several self defense shootings around Indy as well. It has been mostly black on black murders as well. Of course this is a total enigma, wrapped in a riddle of mystery and intrigue, similar to world hunger and peace in the Middle East.

  • Liberals Want Good Teachers

    04/15/2014 8:13:39 AM PDT · 16 of 19
    Tenacious 1 to Wiser now

    A few years ago, a principle and a teacher were going door to door in my neighborhood soliciting support for a ballot initiative to raise property taxes for local schools. They wanted me to vote to have my property taxes raised from $1,900 per year to over $3,000 dollars per year. I was polite at first as I had just lost my job. The money was to go toward teacher benefits and BONUSES with a little bit toward busses. They kept saying, “It’s for the kids.” At first, they didn’t know I had the list of salaries for the local teachers and administrators that had been leaked by an insider. I went and retrieved it and showed them. The sheet showed teachers how the tax initiative would affect their compensation and benefits. It was no wander they had teachers volunteer to go door to door. The principle tried to explain, “The Bonuses column is deceiving because that is really just the added contribution to health insurance.” ... to the tune of an additional $18,000 dollars FOR HER alone. She was making $90K at the time and the “bonus” shown was for $18K. She got the obligatory eye-roll from me. They were offended that I referred to them (politely of course) as “government workers.” In fact they objected to that title. But they couldn’t refute it.

    After a lengthy and mostly polite debate on why I wouldn’t support their pay raise when I couldn’t go to my neighbors asking them for money to compensate my job loss, I finally asked, “Do you believe that more money has ever made one child smarter?” “Why, after all these years of tripling and quadrupling education budgets and spending, have our kids been on a constant decline; why are they getting stupider with each passing year?” No Response, conversation over.

    They need DATA? Really? This is smoke and mirrors. Data is often cooked, especially when it is filtered through teachers unions, administrators and government hippies. Don’t be fooled, very few in the administration ranks of teaching (State, Federal and local) are interested in making kids smarter. Their first loyalty is the teaching profession (their jobs). Measuring success is actually VERY simple. So why does it seem so complicated?

    (This might get long now that I think about it)

    I have observed, the effect of great leadership and effective management across several industries (Construction, Real estate, Retail and Manufacturing). I have also been amazed at the detrimental affects of poor management and leadership. Actually, I am more amazed that failures are not weeded out of the positions of management sooner or at all. But I have identified a credible reason why and how this happens. This is only observations based on my own experience.

    Organizational Mediocrity becomes and infestation and spreads like a virus through organizations. From here it only gets worse as incompetence fails to recognize incompetence. The side affects are excuses and absurd rationalizations. In government there is no fix because their is no accountability or consequences for failure or success. When just a couple (or handful based on the size of any organization) folks are promoted to executive level management positions that are not qualified to manage others, they often take on an insecure persona. Insecurity breeds animosity towards high performers. Management feels threatened. As more and more mediocre middle managers take up positions and a bureaucracy grows, a bench mark for expectations and success fades to gray and becomes obscured by some status quo. As the failures mounts, the mediocre middle managers close ranks to protect against accountability and the focus will change to their own preservation.

    In the education system, mediocrity prevails as a result of teachers unions where teacher performance means very little. It’s so bad, they can’t even fathom a way to measure teacher performance (its the students fault, its the system, there’s not enough money, we don’t pay enough). Because greatness can’t be measured or rewarded, there is little aspiration to excel or even exceed any expectation. Passionate professional teachers (of which there are many) are demoralized by “a system” that is so concerned with the general incompetence that they have to enact “zero tolerance” rules, regulate who and when parents should be contacted, submit discipline issues to a discipline board, etc.

    In all other industries, good managers and leaders have their pulse on the individuals that are accountable and responsible for delivering results. They make sure all know what they are accountable for and what is expected of them. Their work ethic, character and performance are measured in objective AND subjective ways. If a high performer routinely pisses off customers, a good manager intervenes to correct the problem or reallocate that company resource. WE do not have leadership or strong management in our educations system (generally speaking across the nation).

    Obvious Solutions that nobody has the guts to talk about:
    1) Make teachers unions (actually all government worker unions) illegal. There is nobody to collectively bargain against.
    2) Abolish the Department of Education and all associated state funding and let the states manage their own schools.
    3) States should hire a CEO of education, pay them well and let them run the state’s education system per an annual budget. This person should be appointed by the Governor as the Governor is an elected official.
    4) The CEO compensation is performance based relative to test scores (or changes year to year) and budget targets.

    Alternatively, the states could privatize and make all schools “for profit” under contract with the states that are also incentive based.

    Sorry for the long post.

    All adhesives have to be water based and can’t have VOCs (smell funny). Dish washing and Laundry detergent can’t have phosphates any more. DDT was banned (could have saved millions of 3rd world lives). Diesel gas engines used to be VERY efficient... until the government decided they put out too much sulfur and mandated a different fuel.

    Many (maybe most) waste water treatment plants produce potable water. That’s what they are for. They take sewage and make it safe for the environment (which is to say it is safe to drink). I’m sure this is simply a bureaucratic regulatory thing.

    In industrial buildings that require a waste treatment plant, the waste water leaving the plants can be drank from the discharge pipes (at least initially). It tastes fine.

    Eventually a certain temple will cause the liquid in your cells to expand and burst the cell wall causing a burn.

    I'll be sure to steer clear of that temple. Sounds horrible.

    What is the altitude of Yamiga Thailand?

    I started going all scientific too. Put me in a vacuum with just enough oxygen and flameless heat, I'll sit in water boiling at 110 degrees too. LOL

    I might tend to agree. I’m not sure how many people in this country have decided whether they would put their life on the line for the freedom of future generations or not.

    The times have changed, however, since Waco, Ruby Ridge and other places.

    As far as I am concerned the ground that this took place on is now sacred ground, as sacred as Lexington Common or Concord Bridge. The land immediate around where this took place should be set asside for a First and Second Amendment Memorial.

    I doubt this is over. But I hope it is and the good guys won.

    No, he tried to speak to her against dangerously being on the wrong side of the road. She was arrested when she attempted to flee.

    Flee from a man on a motorcycle screaming, "I want to talk to you." Why didn't the officer pull ahead, get off his motorcycle and do what he needed to do, AS HE HAS BEEN TRAINED TO DO?
