A Babe in the Universe: Dark Keeps Flowing

A great post by fellow Blogger, L. Riofrio.

Another theory for the mystical "dark flow" is the possibility that the Universe is being pulled apart by massively massive objects within our own Universe. (As opposed to the gravitational force of other Universe's mass, outside of our own.)

Ted's Blog: Please Help a Deserving Family!

Please Help a Deserving Family! Earlier this month, a family lost Cecil Brown. He was gunned down in his back yard. The only connection that he had to a fight that was started earlier, while he was out at a club, was that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. His family is hard-working, good people. They could use even $5 if you can spare it to help with proper funeral arrangements. Thank you for your kindness. Feel free to post comments that I will share with the family...

Who is Paying for the Tea Parties? (Oh yes, paying)

FreedomWorks

Founded in 1984, FreedomWorks is headquartered in Washington, DC, and has hundreds of thousands of grassroots volunteers nationwide. The organization is chaired by former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey and the President is Matt Kibbe.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute

(CEI) is a non-profit libertarian[1] think tank[2] founded in 1984 by Fred L. Smith, Jr and based in Washington, D.C., USA. CEI's stated belief is that consumers are best helped not by government regulation of commercial interests...ExxonMobil Corporation was a major donor to CEI, with over $2 million in contributions between 1998 and 2005. [9] In 2002 the company gave $405,000;[10] in 2004 it gave CEI $180,000 that was earmarked for "global climate change and global climate change outreach." Myron Ebell is the Director of Global Warming and International Environmental Policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), a non-profit public policy organization founded in 1984 by Fred L. Smith, Jr.
Director, Myron Ebell directs and oversees all aspects of energy policy education and advocacy for CEI. He is also the Chairman of the Cooler Heads Coalition, an informal and ad-hoc policy group that works on the economics, science, and risk analysis associated with global warming.
His main job is to provide material to the media in the form of quotes to newspaper reporters and participation in live interviews on the subject of climate change. His positions at various times are: (a) climate change isn't happening, (b) it is happening, but it's not because of human released CO2, (c) it is happening, and may be human induced, but it will be much cheaper to adapt to the change than to ration the use of fossil fuels, (d) it is happening and the consequences will be good for the environment.[1]
He also digs out countervailing facts from the scientific literature that can be used by other pundits and writes on matters of property rights for several right wing conservative publications.
He has been described as a presidential advisor to George W. Bush in several media outlets, but there is no evidence for this on his resume. He was associated with an advisor Philip Cooney in an email about plans to take forward litigation against the EPA. Now working on the 9/12 rally in Washington D.C. next month.

MoveOn.org Political Action: 10 things to know about McCain

MoveOn.org Political Action: 10 things to know about McCain: http://pol.moveon.org/mccain10/

10 things you should know about John McCain (but probably don't):


John McCain voted against establishing a national holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Now he says his position has "evolved," yet he's continued to oppose key civil rights laws.

1
According to Bloomberg News, McCain is more hawkish than Bush on Iraq, Russia and China. Conservative columnist Pat Buchanan says McCain "will make Cheney look like Gandhi."
2
His reputation is built on his opposition to torture, but McCain voted against a bill to ban waterboarding, and then applauded President Bush for vetoing that ban.
3
McCain opposes a woman's right to choose. He said, "I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned."
4
The Children's Defense Fund rated McCain as the worst senator in Congress for children. He voted against the children's health care bill last year, then defended Bush's veto of the bill.
5
He's one of the richest people in a Senate filled with millionaires. The Associated Press reports he and his wife own at least eight homes! Yet McCain says the solution to the housing crisis is for people facing foreclosure to get a "second job" and skip their vacations.
6
Many of McCain's fellow Republican senators say he's too reckless to be commander in chief. One Republican senator said: "The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He's erratic. He's hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me."
7
McCain talks a lot about taking on special interests, but his campaign manager and top advisers are actually lobbyists. The government watchdog group Public Citizen says McCain has 59 lobbyists raising money for his campaign, more than any of the other presidential candidates.
8
McCain has sought closer ties to the extreme religious right in recent years. The pastor McCain calls his "spiritual guide," Rod Parsley, believes America's founding mission is to destroy Islam, which he calls a "false religion." McCain sought the political support of right-wing preacher John Hagee, who believes Hurricane Katrina was God's punishment for gay rights and called the Catholic Church "the Antichrist" and a "false cult."
9
He positions himself as pro-environment, but he scored a 0—yes, zero—from the League of Conservation Voters last year.
10
John McCain is not who the Washington press corps make him out to be.

'The end of the world' has already begun, UW scientists say

'The end of the world' has already begun, UW scientists say: "'The end of the world' has already begun, UW scientists say"

We are really in for a treat this century. As I look around the Internet, it seems as though we are statistically running out of time on a few really big issues. If you think the economic meltdown was a buzz-kill, then brace yourself. There is a 1 in 10 chance that a life altering asteroid is going to hit Earth this century!

Ted Kelly FB healthcare poll says alot about why we can't seem to get things right in politics. Learning the difference between a poll and a scientific poll is a good start people. Has no one thought about this? The poll indicates that a certain percent of Facebook users that are interested in taking polls and know how to use their keyboard and don't mind their friends seeing the results think they don't want GOV healthcare...

Wow. With the health care debate gearing up, some new numbers from Gallup suggest that the public doesn't have a tremendous amount of confidence in Republican leaders on the issue.

New report: Individual health insurance market failing consumers

Commonwealth Fund

New report: Individual health insurance market failing consumers
73 percent who tried to buy insurance on their own did not purchase a plan; half of adults with individual coverage have out-of pocket and premium costs that equal 10 percent or more of income

New report: Individual health insurance market failing consumers: "New York, NY, July 21, 2009—The individual health insurance market is not a viable option for the majority of uninsured adults, a new report from The Commonwealth Fund finds. Seventy-three percent of people who tried to buy insurance on their own in the last three years did not purchase a policy, primarily because premiums were too high. In addition, among adults with individual coverage or who tried to buy coverage in the past three years, 57 percent said it was very difficult or impossible to find coverage they could afford, 47 percent said it was very difficult or impossible to find a plan with the coverage they needed, and 36 percent were denied coverage or charged more because of a pre-existing condition, or had the condition excluded from their coverage." ...

Think that you are safe from high medical bills in the event of a catastrophe because you have health insurance?

You are NOT!
A report, released in February says otherwise:

Cancer Patients Confront Holes in the Health Insurance System

Judgement

A Conservative is a man that outwardly has no faults. A liberal sees the faults under the facade and accepts them.

Argh!!!

...and by the way...
I don't want to hear another word about how Liberals and Progressives have the nation's worst interest at heart and are destroying America. I am a descendant of the first settlers that you learned about in school, (yes, Plymouth was their Ellis Island). As well, I am a cousin of former presidents Bush, Kennedy, and Harrison. I am one of this country's most vehement passionates.... and I am a Progressive Liberal. What gives you the right to say that you know better than I, or the son of your hero Ronald Reagan? Stick that in your Socialism-Fearing craw and smoke it with a blowtorch!

Control of Healthcare

Lately, the argument from the right is: "Who do you want in control of your healthcare? The Government?"

Well, here is the alternative. Right now, HMO's are in control of our health care.

If Obama gets his way, Doctors would be in control of our health care.

In 4 years, if the Right wins the Presidential Election, Haliburton will be in control of our health care.
