Tuesday Night Open Mic for July 6, 2010

Another Tuesday night means that we have found our way to another open mic night. I have chosen to not yet address the video series that JAC suggested, for a couple of reasons. First, I would like to give more people time to view the videos. It takes a total of about three hours, which is more time than some have had to give to it quickly. Second, I want to be very available to discuss those videos when the time comes. Today will be a day of my being on the road, which means that I will not be able to weigh in on anything during the day Wednesday. I will try to do so Wednesday night, but cannot be sure I will be able. For this week’s offerings from me, we have the black panther voter intimidation case, the ban on offshore drilling being re-pushed by the “never waste a crisis” administration, some key players in the middle east suddenly not so friendly with Iran, and the federal government’s suggestion of a far reaching online identity program that they propose would help us to be more secure in terms of our private information. As always, I encourage everyone to bring to the table the topics that they want to discuss as well. Open mic night is meant to be the night to do it!

Man Made BullCrap…

hottest-hoaxI feel like I should do this post for Chris’s sake. Not that I don’t always enjoy covering this topic. But I invited Chris to the site after a small discussion on facebook. We were discussing global warming and I was unable to have the discussion in the limited space of a facebook note, so I invited him here to have the debate. I am hoping that he is still up for trying to defend what I think is one of the biggest farces we have seen in the last decade. It ranks right up there with terrorism justifying the Patriot Act and the Evils of big business justifying the unprecedented move towards socialism. But those are other topics for other days. Today I am talking about anthropomorphic (man-made) global warming, or the lack thereof…
