    I wonder how much CO2 is emitted into the atmosphere when a Chevy Volt explodes? The list of required knowledge for first responders gets longer all the time. Now firefighters are being alerted to potential danger during rescue procedures involving hybrid or electric vehicles... At a conference of in Las Vegas this weekend, the National Fire Protection Association provided a day of training for trainers — firefighters who will return home to share with their ranks practical knowledge about the cars. Safely disabling the the batteries tops the list. High-voltage batteries that operate the vehicle systems carry enough juice to...
  • Can We Taxpayers Expect Anything From “Julia?”

    Flopping Aces ^ | 05-08-12 | Warren Beatty
    On Thursday, April 3, 2012, the Barack Obama re-election campaign released “The Life of Julia.” In it are 12 stages in the life of “Julia,” a fictional woman used to demonstrate how Obama’s policies would help her. Throughout the stages in her life, Julia is depicted as someone who benefits from the programs either created by or funded by Obama. The obvious message is that a vote for Obama will keep the largesse flowing for all, not just fictional Julia. One very real problem with the “Julia” concept is that throughout the 12 stages nowhere is it mentioned that...

    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 5-08-2012 | MOTUS
    Have you heard about the GenVeg campaign? No, it’s not a new youth-vote drive. It’s a collaboration between Birdseye and Lady M to promote their frozen vegetables and her No Child’s Fat Behind program. The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), which works with the private sector and its honorary chair First Lady Michelle Obama to end the childhood obesity crisis, today announced that Birds Eye, America's leading vegetable company, is launching a three-year effort to encourage kids to look at vegetables in a whole new way. "Birds Eye understands that talking to kids differently about eating their vegetables is...

  • Free Republic's Jim Robinson Makes the Turn

    Free Republic's Jim Robinson Makes the Turn punish RINOs in the House I respect those who are still die-hard for beating Romney, but that is yesterday’s fight. The danger is not in seeming inconsistent–trust me; we left marks all over that Romney fellow, and he will not forget us. Maybe next time we will unseat him like we are about to do to Lugar, and a number of other RINOs. And this is the fight for today: punish RINOs in the House and especially Lugar in the Senate. Tomorrow’s fight is back to the White House to get Obama out...

    In 2002 to the surprise of no careful observer, Democrat Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney was beaten in a primary and rendered unable to run for re-election. McKinney was defeated rather easily (58/42) by Denise Majette a first time candidate. Ordinarily this local primary would have little significance, but the results of a McLaughlin and Associates poll done two weeks before that Election day changes that view. The survey found that Majette had a slight lead, but the really startling news was that while McKinney enjoyed over a 90% name recognition rate, just 28% knew who her opponent was. In other...

    Sultan Knish | Monday, May 07, 2012 | Daniel Greenfield
    For the last twenty years Israel has been swept into an obsession with few parallels except to the Dutch Tulip economy. Except instead of tulips, its commodity of choice is an even more insubstantial thing, the faint promise of peace. Peace fever is the disease consuming Israel as surely as the Black Death took Europe. If the Dutch traded fortunes for flowers, the Israelis have traded away most of their territory for worthless pieces of paper that last about as long as tulips do. Mostly, like Madoff's investments, after they wither and die it turns out that they were never...

    WND’s Chelsea Schilling is a brave lady. She courageously took an assignment to go undercover on Facebook to expose the darkest, most sickening aspect of that social network: prevalent child rape imagery and video. The result of her gut-twisting investigation is a four-part series being published this week at WND. Part one, titled, “Kids Raped, Sodomized on Facebook Pages,” was published on Sunday. For the many millions of Facebook users, this is new information. As Ms. Schilling reports, not many people are aware that this side of Facebook exists. She is shining the light on this depraved, criminal enterprise, and...

    Election season is in full swing and this election will decide whether America continue it's road to a corrupt system of Federal overreach or whether America will return to the Founder's intent. It has also become clear that this election will become violent in major cities across the country and the use of fear will be used heavily by the Obama Administration in order to win your vote or convince you not to vote (which is the same thing). Obama will endorse the Occupy Movement throughout these next months and the more he claims they speak for the country, the...

    Global Grind ^ | May 7, 2012
    Overcoming injustice and eliminating disparities is something that America still struggles with, as the case of Trayvon Martin has become national news. In a speech to the Detroit chapter of the NAACP on Sunday, Attorney General Eric Holder mentioned the case of Trayvon while talking about the violence and crime involving young people in today’s inner cities. As Holder told the NAACP: "This (violence) is an issue that has -– rightly -– garnered significant national attention in recent months, as our nation has struggled to make sense of the tragic shooting death of a Florida teenager named Trayvon Martin. As...

    It turns out that left wingers really do believe in unicorns. Even in France. François Hollande has defeated Nicolas Sarkozy in the French Presidential election. Honestly, sometimes it's not easy to take the French people seriously. Hollande made a number of campaign promises, including Hollande wants to renegotiate a hard-won European treaty on budget cuts that Germany's Angela Merkel and Sarkozy had championed. He wants more government stimulus, and more government spending in general despite concerns from markets that France needs to urgently trim its huge debts. and Hollande’s win represents a groundshift in European politics; with a socialist president,...

    In case you missed it, the presidential campaign is underway. How do we know? That’s a good point, actually, because the incumbent has been campaigning non-stop ever since his last campaign ended. But TV ads are rolling out, so this must indicate a new phase, at least, if not the starting point. What, you may ask, is President Barack Obama pointing to as his great accomplishment? First, ask yourself . . .

    www.FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: Dudley Baker of PreciousMetalsWarrants.com and TheGreedyGuru.com joined us for another look at the recently decimated precious metals mining sector. While markets like we've had lately may try men's souls, he's confident sooner rather than later, this value and other economic factors will result in a swarm of investors gobbling up these shares. Insider buying, a crucial indicator for Dudley's model, has been trending up in a number of miners, and this is probably good news for investors. Dudley gets up-to-the-minute updates on insiders purchases and sales and presents them regularly in his database, along with stocks that have...

    www.FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: "Ranting" Andy Hoffman was with us today to review the ever declining and disintegrating world economy and to offer us his weekly insight into the precious metals markets. While gold and silver prices have been under repeated attack, Spain, Portugal and Italy have become complete basket-cases. Add to that, the election of a socialist government over the weekend in France, declining support for Merkel in Germany, and Conservative Party losses in England, and you have the prescription for a hyper-inflationary bust. In Greece, the major parties only received 35 percent of the vote, with the majority being split...

    There’s good news today. And bad. Both have to do with taxes, that bane of civilization in which some men decide other men must part with their money, mostly to spend on what some men have deemed to be more important than what the other men, the ones who earned the dough, may have in mind. If you missed our column Sunday on the ruckus over Apple minimizing its tax bite, you can read it here...

    One of the hallmarks of demonstrations organized by the left-as anyone who lives in this city can attest-is a consistently muddled message-or assemblage of messages-which often has little bearing on the theme ostensibly animating the protest movement in question. I’m not sure if the occupiers displaying the words of anti-USSR, Marxist Polish philosopher-turned anti-Marxist Solidarity activist-Leszek Kolakowski appreciate their import-considering the number of CCCP t-shirts and Soviet flags I saw displayed throughout May Day, I doubt most of them do. However, the Kolakowski quote did strike an ironic note when juxtaposed against the sea of slogans chanted by protesters this...

    There was a little mentioned tangent to last Friday's very disappointing NFP print of +115,000 (driven by a surge in temp jobs offsetting a collapse in full time positions): as David Rosenberg notes, the jobs number was about half of another far more important number - that of Americans applying for disability , which in April was +225,000. He continues: "this is the new stealth stimulus program - so far in 2011, nearly one million Americans have applied for disability and year-to-date, 333k have actually enrolled (covering 539k family members). In total, more than five million people have been added...
