Here's racist Middle America, the ever present underbelly of and cowardice and bigotry. 73 year old singer Lester Chambers (of the Chambers Brothers) was attacked on stage for dedicating a song to the memory of slain Trayvon Martin. This all happened before the verdict had even been read (!).   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24VSGi8Y5VQ and interview with Lester Chambers here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhxIqf92N4s   This attacker undoubtedly couldn't...
      HOGWASH!     (extracted)   Initially, police didn’t arrest Zimmerman as he asserted self-defense under the state’s Stand Your Ground law. While his attorneys never filed an official Stand Your Ground motion in the case, the claim would become Zimmerman’s central defense.   Last year, state Senator Dwight Bullard , D-39th District, led the charge against the Stand Your Ground law which the state’s legislature passed in 2005. While some say the law did not play a...
Only in America can a dead black guy go on trial for his own murder.

The two main plotters of this attack both received life sentences.

I do realize that some people are under...
    Rogue elements within the US government are using "2nd hand terrorism" (with the complicity of the cowardly corporate media in full kneepad mode) to violate the rights of US citizens by flagrantly breaching the Bill of Rights, most especially the 4th Amendment. They are playing the terrorism card to the max, despite the fact that the chances of anyone being involved in a terrorist attack is less than that of drowning in the bathtub, dying from a bee sting, or being...
  Hopey Changey?   Ha!     As if! No chance.
  We Americans are (now) too apathetic, locked into tradition, scared/terrorized, distracted and in obeisance to authority, to allow people power to work. We voluntarily gave up our real independence decades ago.
  Oops... agreed 100%. Pickiness is essential in sound, complete science. My awkward phrasing. 
Very true. Climate = "weather averaged over the long term".   It is scientifically fallacious to attribute any specific weather event to planetary heating/climate change; there is often commentary in the mainstream media with the implication " ...caused by global warming....". However, a heating planet will permit greater latent heat energy in the atmosphere (warmer air can carry more water vapor, and hence release more energy on condensation), resulting in an increased...
All this fashionable talk of the "free market", but is there really a example of such? I have never seen one... not even my local farmers' market lives up to this utopian ideal. The use of the phrase seems more of a (psychologically slanted) ploy to get the masses to equate/knee-jerk capitalism with freedom/liberty.
