  • Government Investment in Electric Cars to Be Tested

    05/30/2011 4:50:57 PM PDT · by John Semmens · 7 replies
    A pilot program to test the efficiency of electric cars in five American cities is underway. The initial investment will cost $4.5 million and is projected to save $116,000 per year if successful. In order to recover the initial investment each electric car will need to be driven 600,000 miles. According to Consumer Reports, the average life expectancy of a new car is 150,000 miles. read more... http://azconserv1.wordpress.com/2011/05/28/government-edges-closer-to-total-control-of-internet-with-anti-piracy-censorship-bill/

    John Ziegler In only the past couple days, just as the Republican presidential field seems to be forming the type of void that almost begs her to fill it, Sarah Palin has once again been called “stupid” in two high-profile media outlets.The first came from one of the usual suspects, Chris Matthews and MSNBC, where the host dismissed Palin as having allegedly proven herself to be “profoundly stupid.”The second occurred when the Huffington Post repeated a secondhand quote from an anonymous “Republican” who allegedly told a New York magazine reporter that Fox News head Roger Ailes “thinks” that Palin is...

    Taking a brief timeout from his perennial campaign, Obama has given a big speech on the Middle East. It’s not surprising how many billions more dollars Obama wants in his quest to save the world with our money. None of that really matters, though, to the struggling American who’s out of work, on food stamps, facing double-digit inflation in every necessity of life, or fed up to his neck hearing Obama brag about getting bin Laden. Forget the speech, dear readers. I’ll give you the whole thing in a nutshell: America drowns while Obama throws our own life preserver to...
  • Democrat: Non-Energy-Producing States Shouldn’t Complain About High Gas Prices

    (CNSNews.com) - A U.S. senator -- a Democrat – is taking a strong stand against a bill introduced by a fellow Democrat that would end energy subsidies for big oil companies. In a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday, Sen. Mary Landrieu, from the oil-producing state of Louisiana, said the bill introduced by Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) targets an industry that supports 9.2 million jobs and contributes more than 7.7 percent to U.S. gross domestic product. Ending energy subsidies for oil and gas companies, she said, will not reduce gas prices, but it will eliminate jobs. Landrieu also took a...

    A swimming coach has resigned after he was allegedly caught on camera pulling a schoolgirl from the pool by her hair after she did not swim fast enough. The shocking footage appears to show the assistant coach at Roseville High School, California, reach down into the water and grab the 17-year-old girl’s hair after her team finished fifth out of six in a competition. Coach Geoff Capell was reportedly unhappy that the captain of the varsity team Jennifer McCarroll and another girl were not giving the race their best effort. The video has caused outrage after it was posted online...

    Well, it didn't take very long for the stupid people of the world to wake up and come up with a pushback against the fact that Osama bin Laden is currently bobbing someplace in the Indian Ocean today. Instead, the same people that believe just about anything have decided to believe that the killing of bin Laden was fake. Welcome to the "Osama bin Laden NOT DEAD" group on Facebook. It has many members from outside of the United States-- apparently the conspiracy theories that abounded after September 11th die hard. Further, there's a lot of handwringing about American policies....

    One of the most hated men in history has been killed by our troops by a Commander-in-Chief who has done everything in his power to demean, de-fund, impose demeaning homosexuality and restrict the ability of our troops to fight terror, including pursuing civilian trials for captured would-be terrorists. Let's be fair here, the average American hasn't a clue what century the French & Indian War was fought in and probably cannot tell you who who Joe Biden is, so the mainstream media will run with this for all its worth. The Media will give 100% credit to Obama and mark...

    The details of BART General Manager Dorothy Dugger's early exit are still being worked out, but one thing is clear - it's not going to be cheap. "If it's not seven figures, it could be doggone close," said Lynette Sweet, one of nine BART directors who will have to vote on the package. BART and Dugger have both armed up with outside attorneys to do the final negotiations. Dugger, who has an open-ended contract that pays her $354,000 a year, was basically fired by a 5-4 vote of BART directors last month. Sweet was among those voting to keep her....

    Omaha World-Herald ^ | March 23, 2011 | By Maggie O'Brien
    Mayor Jim Suttle went to Washington Tuesday flush with ideas for how federal officials could help cities like Omaha pay for multibillion-dollar sewer projects. Among the items on his brainstorming list: a proposal for a 10-cent federal tax on every roll of toilet paper you buy. Based on the four-pack price for Charmin double rolls Tuesday at a midtown Hy-Vee, such a tax would add more than 10 percent to the per-roll price, pushing it over a buck

    Politics seems to have become a sort of mental illness. We have no bloody business in Libya, and no idea what we hope to achieve there. We are daily told that we have no money to spare. We have just scrapped a large part of our Navy. Our Army is stuck in an Afghan war whose point nobody can explain. And now we have set out on a course that could drag us into a long, gory brawl in North Africa.

    Nothing could more perfectly summarize the perverse insanity of eco-fascism than Big Government's war on the incandescent light bulb. Because sanctimonious bureauweenies are winning this war, traditional light bulbs will soon be illegal, leaving us with inferior yet more expensive compact fluorescents, which are so toxic that garbagemen are balking at their presence in the trash: Councils across the UK are refusing to pick up low-energy lightbulbs from homes as they contain toxic mercury, which gives off poisonous vapours. But confused consumers are putting the new bulbs — classed as hazardous waste — in their dustbins when they burn out,...

    Isn't it nice how you just flip a switch and the lights come on, and you can sit down to work at your computer whenever you need to? Enjoy these conveniences while you can, because reliable electricity is among the privileges the moonbat ruling class plans to revoke: Electricity consumers in the UK will need to get used to flicking the switch and finding the power unavailable, according to Steve Holliday, CEO of National Grid, the country's grid operator. Because of a six-fold increase in wind generation, which won't be available when the wind doesn't blow, "The grid is going...

If a woman can’t prove that her miscarriage–or spontaneous abortion–occurred without intervention, she could face felony charges.

    A company that tracks roughly half of all U.S. home loans has no right to transfer mortgages, a ruling that could significantly affect the foreclosure process nationwide, a federal bankruptcy judge concluded. Merscorp Inc, a private company known as MERS and owned by large banks and mortgage processors, cannot act as an agent of the banks that own mortgages, wrote Judge Robert Grossman of the U.S. bankruptcy court in Central Islip, New York, located on Long Island. MERS, which stands for Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, tracks more than 60 million mortgages, and has filed thousands of foreclosure actions on behalf...

    Residents in Surrey and Kent villages have been ordered by police to remove wire mesh from their windows as burglars could be injured. Home owners in the villages of Tandridge and Tatsfield in Surrey and in Westerham, Brasted and Sundridge in Kent have said they are furious that they are being branded 'criminals' for protecting their property. Locals had reinforced their windows with wire mesh after a series of shed thefts but were told by community police officers that the wire was 'dangerous' and could lead to criminals claiming compensation if they 'hurt themselves'.
