Hugo Chavez Sends Army to Change All Lights in Venezuela to CFLs

Posted March 14th, 2010 by berserker13
Tags:

Due to a bad drought that’s dried up the hydroelectric plants that supply more than two-thirds of its power, Venezuela has been suffering through its worst energy crisis in the last 50 years. President Hugo Chavez’s solution? Change all the light bulbs! Well, that might not be the only action the country is taking (they’ve also put electricity rationing into effect) but an army of Venezuelan soldiers has been given direct orders from the president to distribute thousands of Firefly energy-efficient CFL bulbs.

The pledge of allegiance and the religion of the State

Posted March 13th, 2010 by MuslimNonarchist
Tags:

An appellate court has rejected arguments that the pledge of allegiance violates the wall of separation between church and state. Judge Bea said schools do not require students to recite the pledge. When I was 10 I was given detention for asking what the words actually meant and refusing to stand until I understood. Even without this phrase "under God" the pledge is designed to inculcate the most nefarious form of idolatry, the worship of an omnipotent, omniscient omnibenevolent government.

Posted March 11th, 2010 by Grunco

Salmonella contamination at a Nevada food-flavoring plant may trigger the recall of as many as 10,000 products, according to a Consumers Union scientist.

PepsiCo Inc. joined Procter & Gamble Co., Nestle SA and McCormick & Co. yesterday in recalling food containing hydrolyzed vegetable protein, or HVP.

To date, there are no known illnesses associated with the contaminated HVP, which is sometimes referred to as a “natural flavor” on ingredient labels

Reason Magazine: "Why I prefer French Health Care"

Posted March 11th, 2010 by orblivion
Tags:

Here's a guy on Reason.com, a prominent libertarian publication, talking about how he prefers France's single payer system to what we have in the US. That is to say, perhaps the free market is the best scenario, but the alternative isn't necessarily near the disaster we claim it to be. So far, the discussion among libertarians seems to be that European medicine is a disaster, but I've heard plenty of people claim the contrary. Let's give this a fair discussion!

What is a trillion?

Posted March 11th, 2010 by mikesylvia
Tags:

Our government has gotten us accustom to budgets and spending in trillions. I’ve seen graphics that try to show dollar bills (FRaud Notes) stacked like sky scrapers, impressive but lacking. I ran across a piece of information about javascript code which counts time in milliseconds based from 1970. Seconds of time are nice little units we’re pretty familiar with, one Mississippi, two Mississippi …. So, I was born back in 1958; how many trillion seconds have passed since I was born?
