Judicial Stupidity In Texas

My wife showed me this story: Honor Student Working Two Jobs Thrown In Jail For Missing School

This is another example of judicial stupidity / abuse. These morons ruling from the bench are absolutely insane.

Idiot JudgeWe’ve got a 17 year old high school honor student supporting her two siblings by working two jobs and trying to attend high school.  Why? Because her dead-beat parents split the scene and left her alone to fend for the family.

Canadian Tar Sands

Tar Sands DestructionThe Business Insider has a pictorial series on the Canadian Tar Sands being strip mined up in Alberta. There are a lot of good photos to ponder over.

Anyone who hasn’t become familiar with this incredibly destructive practice of wasting tens of thousands of square miles of the Earth’s surface should take a hard look.

The people of Trinidad, thousands of miles away are concerned for their island. They may be facing the same level of devastation if the politicians and Big Oil have their way.

Greenhouse Project 2

Greenhouse In The Box

The greenhouse arrives in a bunch of big boxes on long pallets. It was pretty tricky to get this safely unloaded from the truck. It weighs several thousand pounds (about 4k).

It was a bit overwhelming at first, but after getting boxes opened up it started to make sense.

Now where are the instructions?

Greenhouse

Well, there aren’t any real instructions, just some basic assembly information.  Nothing in the boxes on how to actually erect the frame.  The “instructions” consisted of “erect the frame first”.  Hmmm. Guess I will figure this out myself.

Why do these groups often fall into self-deception and delusion?  Land based sustainable communities are a great idea, but they need not be based upon cult followings.

Guess that makes this guy a false profit [sic]:

The year 2008 marked the last of God’s warnings to mankind and the beginning in a countdown of the final three and one-half years of man’s self-rule that will end by May 27, 2012.

Personal Democracy – A Primer

Democracy has been described as “two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner.

Wolf Pack

I’ll take this a bit further.  Once the wolves cemented their “officialdom” over the flock, there is absolutely no question what’s on the menu.

There will always be wolves. Sometimes they’ll choose to prey [or pray] directly on those around them [serial killers and what have you], but plenty of wolves work to get themselves promoted. This gives them the luxury of having the sheep show up for dinner on their own [voluntarily].  The sheep are very easy to fool.

How Doctors Die — It’s Not Like The Rest of Us, But It Should Be

Old Age, New Life

How Doctors Die — It’s Not Like The Rest of Us, But It Should Be

I just read this article, found it first on Gaea’s Box of Rocks .  It’s really a very good and worthwhile read.

I think it takes a lot of courage to die, but with courage or not, we’re all going to face this.

My hope is to also “do it right”. I recently spent time in the hospital for surgery. That wasn’t so bad, but then weeks later, I had to go see a specialist.  The office was full of dying people.

U.S. Military Proposed Total War Against 1.4 Billion Muslims

Wired Danger Room has broken a story about the U.S. Military training officers in “total warfare” against Islam:

Total War Against Islam

The U.S. military taught its future leaders that a “total war” against the world’s 1.4 billion Muslims would be necessary to protect America from Islamic terrorists, according to documents obtained by Danger Room. Among the options considered for that conflict: using the lessons of “Hiroshima” to wipe out whole cities at once, targeting the “civilian population wherever necessary.”

Death By Cop

RT has a disturbing video of a homeless man being murdered by the local cops in Fullerton, California.

I say “murdered” because it’s pretty bloody obvious that they fully intended to kill him.

Ten months after Fullerton, California police officers beat a 37-year-old homeless man to death, video footage of Kelly Thomas’ last few minutes of consciousness were showed in a Santa Ana, CA courtroom on Monday.

Press Freedom Index for 2011 – 2012

Freedom Of The Press 2011Press Freedom Index for 2011-2012.

Negative rankings indicate a higher score (more press freedom).  Countries are listed in top-scoring order.

U.S. readers will note that our supposed “freedom of the press” is actually headed farther down (by double digits) into the toilet, ranking at only 47.

Double arrows, up or down, means that the position has changed by ten position (or more).
