Global warm.. uh.. Climate Change.

So, since there are a bunch of politicians out there in europe trying to decide our collective global warming fate, I looked around a bit. I came across this link and thought I would share.

It's a pretty interesting take on things if true. Yeah, I know, you can't trust everything you read on the internet. But it's pretty compelling and after poking around it's likely not a hoax.

To listen to the news you'd think that the world is ending in the next coupe of decades. I'll have to say I'm a non-believer in the "damage" we as humans using CO2 does to the atmosphere.

Health Care.

Thanks to Nobody for pointing this one out yesterday.

Here's hoping the senate doesn't let this bill through. Scary stuff in this one.

Swine flu

Read this. Then go cry that fearmongering is alive and well. If even a quarter of what this guy is saying is true we're all very much misinformed.

Update: Now with pictures.

An interesting quote I ran across today by J Reuben Clark.

Eminent men and able men of great experience and wisdom are blaming the people for looking more and more to the Federal Government to meet their wants and to exercise governmental control over them, and this to the destruction of local self government, the rights of the States, and the rights of the people, all which are the basic factors of our social, economic, and constitutional life.

Might I humbly question whether the people are primarily to blame for this?

Nearly two thousand years ago, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, the Master miraculously fed 5,000 people. They immediately wished to make Him king. One who could feed them without their working for it, ought to be made their sovereign. This would solve for them the all important problem of earthly existence. Perceiving their thoughts and to avoid being dragged forth as the seeming head of a rebellion, the Master dismissed them and Himself fled their presence, going “up into a mountain apart to pray.” That night He crossed over to the other side of the sea , and the multitude learning of it, took ship and also crossed over, and came to Him again. They gathered about Him, deceitfully worshipping, declaring: “Of a truth thou art the Son of God.” But He discerning their thought and purpose, reproved them saying: “Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves and were filled.”

He then preached the great sermon on the bread of life, and the sacred record declares: “From that time many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him.”

He was useless to them, except as the gratuitous provider of their bread and meat.

So do multitudes.

If our Congressmen would stop the march of the people to Washington for their government and their substance, they should cease distributing the loaves and fishes from the steps of the Treasury Building across the road from the White House. You Congressmen have the absolute power to stop it; have you the courage? If it is not done, you, not the people, must take on the censure.

There is one principle as old as human government, indeed as old as human relations: He who holds the purse strings, rules the house, the nation, the world.

If Congressmen wish to restore local self-government, and the rights of the States and of the people, let them send back to the States, to the local communities, to the Churches, and to the children of indigent parents, where it belongs, the duty of caring for their own sick and decrepit and aged, their own unfortunate and underprivileged. Then the march on Washington will cease and the countermarch back home will be a Marathon.

Err... wha?

So, I've heard enough unsubstantiate-able rumors about ACORN and their bad ethics and practices... but this takes the cake.

So I'm in the process of creating a new iPhone app. If you're curious you can check out the development blog for it. I'm planning on keeping it up to date.

Just in case anyone decides I'm not dead... you can at least get a few updates there.

Thanks for dropping by.

Your tax dollars at work

Concerned about the new budget the government has for us all? Curious where all that money is going to go for the next year's budget?

Have a look at this.

Very interesting breakdown. Doesn't matter your political leanings, this should be informative to anyone.

Happy tax day! Go visit a tea party for me if you can. =)

Thanks for dropping by.

So a lot has been happening with the "bonuses" over at AIG.

I think anyone who wants to know the reality of the situation needs to have a look at this.

It is chilling to me that the powers that be in the current government are using this event as a political machination to say things like "We need more control of corporations that might effect the economy, to step in and take control". Eminent domain is a good example of this. It started with highways and now it's pretty much anything the gov't wants they can take if they want property-wise. Now it's moving to corporations. What is next?

I don't usually post politics on here, but I've been thinking of the direction we as a country are headed a lot lately and it scares me. More people being slightly more informed would do a ton of good in the country today. Let's hope people start waking up a bit to make sure we don't get too far off of the track that has made america so great.

I came across this quote the other day and thought I'd share.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson
