We can now add another attack on natural resources because the EPA has announced its intention to restrict, if not prohibit, the development of Pebble Mine in Alaska.
I could write every day about some new obscene Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) effort to thwart energy the nation needs, forcing the shutdown more coal-fired plants and the mines that supply them. Goodbye thousands of jobs, goodbye electrical energy. The White House has delayed the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline to transmit oil from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast.
As with software (and hardware) every now and again, it’s necessary to do an update. Same goes for automotive knowledge. Maybe a better term would be conventional wisdom. Things change – and new things come along.
For instance: A lot of people still assume that 28-32 pounds of air in a tire is about right. It was about right… 20 years ago. And while there are still vehicles that have tires that want 28-32 pounds of air in them (most of these are trucks with M/S-rated tires) it is very common for car tire pressures to be in the 40-45 psi range nowadays.
Michael Gazarik: "NASA's future successes depends on the innovative capacity of American small businesses, and their ability to bring new technology to bear on the problems NASA tackles."
NASA has selected 108 research and technology proposals from U.S. small businesses that will enable NASA's future missions while benefiting America's new high technology-driven economy right here on Earth.
What makes this particularly offensive and horrid is the fact that those in the Nazi leadership under Adolf Hitler were all environmentalists, deeply committed to conservation and similar expressions that put the Earth above the value of human life.
It is disingenuous to claim, as the Obama regime and nearly everyone else wagging this dog likes to do that stupendous reductions are in store. Or even that air pollution is a major problem anymore. Per the Burger King lady, where’s the smog?
Are new cars “dirty”?
The average person probably thinks so, if he reads – and believes – coverage of the Obama regime’s latest fatwa regarding tailpipe emissions standards. Here’s the lead from Automotive News, one of the majors covering, well, automotive news. Or so they claim:
What is best in our life, we may not always know. So ultimately it is God’s direction and not our choices that lead to the path of blessing and the path of liberty.
As many of you already know, I filed for the County Council campaign this past Monday in the 5th district of Anne Arundel County. It is interesting to watch some of the reactions. There are those who decry my campaign claiming I would impose a theocracy upon our county. It would appear that they think my belief system is a danger to their liberty. That somehow believing, as our Founders did, that there is a Creator God, the God of the Bible and that our Rights come from Him and that the sole purpose of human civil government is to secure and protect those God given rights, they think that is a very dangerous idea.
Putting Russian troops into the Republic of Crimea while claiming that they are there to protect the human rights of Ukrainians in the eastern sector will prove to be a major blunder. Call it Putin’s folly.
Photos of Vladimir Putin, Russia’s president, often show him shirtless, riding a horse, shooting, catching large fish, and close to wild animals. It is the kind of public relations intended to emphasize his manliness and strength.
Rep. Calvert: "The American people don’t elect Presidents to sit on the sidelines. Yet once again, President Obama has sent a budget to Congress that lacks leadership and fails to seriously address the mounting and obvious sources of our national debt."
By the office of Congressman Ken Calvert
Today[March 4, 2014], Congressman Ken Calvert issued the following statement in response to the release of President Obama’s Fiscal Year 2015 Budget:
The Note remains one of the very few small – and low-priced – hatchbacks that’s not too small to be other than a commuter car, a single person’s car or a second car. It could absolutely serve as a family’s primary – or only – car.
In ’07 Nissan introduced the Versa hatchback, which stood out among economy cars – literally – because it was taller-roofed and had a much roomier (almost mid-sized car’s) back seat and an open, airy feel because of its low-cut beltline and expansive glass area. Initially, it was also sportier than others in its segment. Standard equipment included a powerful 1.8 liter, 122 hp engine and a six-speed manual gearbox.
Everyone knows the Federal Budget is out of control. To start reigning in spending, it’s time to cut off the foreign aid gravy train.
The United States is deeply in debt. As of February 27, 2014, total federal debt amounted to $17.4 trillion dollars. The figure topped $17 trillion in October after a then unprecedented $328 billion increase. Since hitting the $17 trillion mark, the Obama administration has added an additional $350 billion to the debt since then.
In the process of trying to weave a rubric to ban certain words, the Courts now find themselves in the censorship business, and in direct conflict with other sections of the United States Constitution.
In January 2014, I sat in the United States District Court in Baltimore and listened to arguments in a prayer case against the all Republican Board of Carroll County Commissioners.
Having weakened the nation’s economy, causing millions to be unemployed, and having attacked its healthcare system, the nation’s military strength is now openly being attacked by the Obama administration's proposed reductions.
It tells you everything you need to know about the idiots running this country. As the Russians were invading Ukraine, our Secretary of Defense was discussing major cuts to our military budget.
