Martha Stewart: Why I Love My Drone

I'm not quite sure what to do with this. Apparently Martha Stewart got a drone as a present recently and has since gone drone-crazy.

Amash's Opponent Brian Ellis trying to pull a Thad Cochran in Michigan!

West Michigan Politics
Friday, August 1, 2014

The circus continues in what has been called "the nastiest primary" of the year by DC news outlets.

In a page straight out of the Thad Cochran playbook, mailers sent to Democrats at the last minute from Brian Ellis, the primary challenger for Justin Amash, are urging Democrats to vote for Ellis in the Republican primary Tuesday because he will be "reasonable," unlike Amash.

Prohibit deferred actions for aliens

Yesterday, the House voted on a bill that would prohibit agencies from expanding the current number of aliens eligible for deferment, to authorize new deferment actions for any class of alien, or newly authorize an alien to work in the U.S. if they are not here legally.

It looks like it is just the Congress trying to re-enforce laws that are already on the books that are currently being ignored.

A heartfelt thank you -
We couldn't have done it without you.

Dear friends,

Yesterday was a special day for all of us who have supported the High-Rise Safety Initiative in any way. After three months of pounding the NYC pavement, we finished our petition drive.

"the official counterfeiter" cartoon

This was on Lew Rockwell's site. It's a cartoon from 1969 on printing money and it's pretty accessible and charming for people that don't low this stuff. The cartoonists were all Disney cartoonists---it's done very well.

Secret Science Reform?

What is the "Secret Science Reform Act of 2014"? It's a new bill in the Senate that proposes to "prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency from proposing, finalizing, or disseminating regulations or assessments based upon science that is not transparent or reproducible."

I wonder if this means that all of the EPA science must be made available before a regulation can be even proposed.

Suppressed Cure for Ebola: Renowned Physician Sends Open Letter to Affected Countries

Newton, New Jersey (PRWEB) July 30, 2014

An Ebola Virus outbreak caused by a novel Ebola strain, which was apparently introduced into the human population through a single case in 2013, now threatens to spread globally.

Accelerating since that time, the devastating disease, which WHO says kills up to 90% of its victims, is raging through West Africa and threatens to break out into countries with transportation links to that area. Current “authoritative” information asserts that there is no prevention and no cure for the disease, whether it has been weaponized (as some believe) or not.

VIDEO: July Jobs Growth Disappoints and Real Unemployment Hangs at 18%

BY Peter Morici 08/01/14 - 11:34 AM EDT

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The Labor Department reported the U.S. economy added only 209,000 jobs in July. The unemployment rate rose to 6.2%, but that hardly tells how tough the labor market has become for ordinary folks.
