This Has Almost Limitless Possibilities

“Researchers send ‘wireless’ message using neutrinos”

From Physorg.com:

A group of scientists led by researchers from the University of Rochester and North Carolina State University have for the first time sent a message using a beam of neutrinos – nearly massless particles that travel at almost the speed of light. The message was sent through 240 meters of stone and said simply, “Neutrino.”

Using neutrinos, it would be possible to communicate between any two points on Earth without using satellites or cables,” said Dan Stancil, professor of electrical and computer engineering at NC State and lead author of a paper describing the research. “Neutrino communication systems would be much more complicated than today’s systems, but may have important strategic uses.”

Many have theorized about the possible uses of neutrinos in communication because of one particularly valuable property: they can penetrate almost anything they encounter. If this technology could be applied to submarines, for instance, then they could conceivably communicate over long distances through water, which is difficult, if not impossible, with present technology. And if we wanted to communicate with something in outer space that was on the far side of a moon or a planet, our message could travel straight through without impediment.”

He was only off by $6.7 trillion…

Obama: My budget will reduce the deficit by $3.2 trillion

CBO: Your budget will increase the deficit by $3.5 trillion

Let’s do the math ourselves. Let’s see… subtract six, divide by four, carry the one… yes. Here is the answer. Obama lies.

President Obama’s 2013 budget would add $3.5 trillion to annual deficits through 2022, according to a new estimate from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

It also would raise the deficit next year by $365 billion, according to the nonpartisan office.

The CBO estimate is in sharp contrast to White House claims last month that the Obama budget would reduce deficits by $3.2 trillion over the next decade.


Of course $6.7 trillion is a racist figure. I denounce myself for pointing it out.

Anybody surprised by any of this? Anybody?

Speaking of presidents who will never be on Mt. Rushmore…

I guess the Bush bashing has been getting old. Obama has turned to hacking in Rutherford B. Hayes. Here is Obama…

One of my predecessors, Rutherford B. Hayes, reportedly said about the telephone, ‘It’s a great invention, but who would ever want to use one?’ That’s why he’s not on Mt. Rushmore because he’s looking backwards. He’s not looking forwards. He’s explaining why we can’t do something, instead of why we can do something.”

It turns out that Hayes quote is, to put it succinctly, bullshit. He never said it. The allegation that he did is pretty much slanderous. Hayes, on first using a telephone, described the experience as “wonderful.” He also met with Alexander Graham Bell, was the first president to have a telephone installed in the White House and promoted its use by various means. A complete debunking of Obama’s bullshit can be found at the Washington Post.

In any case, a president who believes that automatic teller machines destroy jobs and who still carries a Blackberry really isn’t in any position to criticize the technological credentials of other presidents.

Palin: “Breitbart Is Here”

Sarah has taken up the fight.

From Breitbart.com:

With the death of Breitbart, the conservative movement didn’t just lose a General – we lost an entire Special Forces Division. But he didn’t leave us without the tools and the knowledge we need to fight. This website – Breitbart 2.0 – is the culmination of his study of the technology and aesthetics of new media. The team Breitbart assembled under the leadership of Steve Bannon, Larry Solov, and Joel Pollak will advance his mission with courage and integrity.

Breitbart’s most immediate mission was the belated vetting of Barack Obama. This obviously is an issue very near and dear to my heart.

The difference between my record and Barack Obama’s is that I fought the corrupt political machine my entire career (and I have twenty years of scars to prove it) on the local, state, and national level. But Obama didn’t fight the corruption he encountered. He went along with it to advance his career. Graft, cronyism, and quid pro quo are the methods of the Chicago political machine from which he emerged.

He was a genius at new media, but his real gift was that he was fearless at a time when too many people are afraid and are retreating. Courage inspires courage. Fearlessness emboldens others to follow your lead.

Now let the vetting begin.”

Afghanistan? Never heard of it.

Not a single mention of Afghanistan in Obama’s 17 minute campaign ad.

President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign late Thursday released a Hollywood-caliber campaign film, 16 minutes and 56 seconds of Tom Hanks-narrated footage that trumpets Obama’s achievements since taking office three years ago, highlights the challenges still ahead—and never once mentions America’s longest war, the conflict in Afghanistan, by name.

Remember the 2008 campaign? Remember how Obama told us that the problem in Afghanistan was that we “took our eye off the ball” in Iraq? The solution was simple, he said. By ending the war in Iraq, we would refocus on Afghanistan.

Here is Senator Obama in 2007…

“We went into Iraq, a war that we should have never authorized and should not have been waged. … It has … allowed us to neglect the situation in Afghanistan.”

So. Iraq is over. Why is he neglecting the situation in Afghanistan today?

Atmospheric CO2 is making you fat

See? It isn’t just about global warming anymore. there are all kinds of reasons to adopt a global socialist plan to reduce C02!

Gaining weight? Blame the air.

That, in a nutshell, is the controversial argument from a group of Dutch researchers who say the world’s rising carbon dioxide levels are contributing to the obesity epidemic.

The hypothesis goes like this: increased carbon dioxide, or CO2, levels in the air make our blood more acidic (reducing pH levels). When this happens, brain cells called orexin neurons, which regulate appetite and are sensitive to blood acidity, increase their activity and cause us to eat more.

The Central Bureaucracy rules

We can’t let the people of individual states plan their own lives, can we?

Congress is employing the same tactic it used to raise the drinking age to compel states to enact new teenage driving laws.

Three decades ago, Washington prodded the states to raise the legal drinking age to 21 by threatening to withhold federal transportation dollars if they didn’t.

The threat worked.

Now, Congress is looking at using similar threats to compel states to pass new driving laws covering everything from teen texting to minimum driving ages.

More of the same.

Note to the drones of the Central Bureaucracy: Look, we are adults out here in Iowa, Nebraska or, say, Idaho. We have legislatures and governors and elections and everything. We can make our own rules regarding our own lives. You are not made smarter or wiser by virtue of being in Washington DC. In fact, it is increasingly evident that you are much, much more stupid.

What is the basis of this compulsion to impose the laws of people of the populous coastal states on those of us in the rural heartland? Why are you unable let us attend to our own affairs?

So this isn’t a mandate. If we don’t like it, we can just forgo federal funds, you tell us. Those “federal funds” are tax dollars you collected from our states. You collect funds within our states from our citizens and then dole them back to us… but only if we do what you tell us to do. This is absurd.

You collect taxes from our citizens, run roughshod over the will of our legislatures and then threaten to withhold what is rightfully ours. History tell us that is a dangerous business.

Brother Love gives Brother Brain some instant gratification.

Thank yew, thank yew, thank yew, Brothers and Sisters THANK YEW!

Now I see that Brother Brain has been true to himself, the wretched sinner that he is. He so desperately wants Brother Love to do what he does but Brother Love is always about his FATHERS business, NOT the business of Brother Brain and his faithful companion Mini Brain. Brother Love will be back here tomorrow night to offer up words of Love to the miserable, lost, depraved sinners that make up our Congregation here as obviously the Love that only he can share is much needed.

Now wouldn’t you know that the title of the sermon for tomorrow night is; “Addicted to Love”. Yes, that’s raht, ADDICTED to LOVE. Obviously Brother Love is tuned into the frequency that can never be jammed because he’s where he needs to be with the right gear to satisfy mission requirements exactly when those requirements must be satisfied.

Now because Brother Love ALWAYS puts the Ladies FIRST…

For the wretched and depraved Brothers who fill these pews, Brother Love has just what you need but you can’t handle it…

Leftists impose their values on others

Only leftists, not conservatives, believe that they can improve people by legislation and fiat. This is really the key to understanding the left. They are profoundly uncomfortable with free people doing what free people do without intervention by an enlightened vanguard. This is because they don’t see the “masses” as equals but as automatons acted upon by external forces. They want desperately to save the masses from the free-for-all that is freedom. They believe that through “enlightened autocracy” they can make the corruptible hoi polloi better people and create a better world.

Conservatives, on the other hand, see humans as individual entities who are ultimately responsible for their own actions. Conservatives don’t blame institutions for what people do or don’t do. The responsibility for individual behavior lies with individuals. Institutions don’t corrupt people, people corrupt institutions. Conservatives believe that free people, as long as they don’t violate the rights of others, have the right to do whatever they want. With that right comes the responsibility to accept the consequences of our actions.

Leftists believe, just as they people can be corrupted by society, people can be made more virtuous human beings by society. They believe that if people are placed in the proper social context, human nature itself will change. They aren’t afraid to impose that social order on the people, either.

Here, for example, is a leftist attempt to make people more virtuous…

Interesting move

For the last two weeks “Winning our Future” has been running Anti-Romney ads on the radio, specifically during the Rush Limbaugh Show. No hit ads for Santorum or Paul. The Florida Primary is LONG over.

What is the point of this?

Are they trying to soften up Delegates for a brokered Convention?

UN to investigate voter ID laws?

They are considering it.

The United Nations Human Rights Council is investigating the issue of American election laws at its gathering on minority rights in Geneva, Switzerland.. This, despite the fact that some members of the council have only in the past several years allowed women to vote, and one member, Saudi Arabia, still bars women from the voting booth completely.

Officials from the NAACP are presenting their case against U.S. voter ID laws, arguing to the international diplomats that the requirements disenfranchise voters and suppress the minority vote.

Who are the members of the Human Rights Council who will be investigating United States voter ID laws?

Vehicle-Mounted Bugout: 30 Minutes or Less

While there are a great many things to consider when creating your bugout kit for various scenarios, we will concentrate on the vehicle-mounted bugout in this exercise.

To do this, we will begin with a realistic baseline. Whatever is causing you to bugout – is urgent and dangerous enough to require you to abandon the safety and security of your most familiar surroundings. This threat is also sufficient to cause concern that it may never again be safe to return.

While you can only carry a limited quantity of stores, you want to make sure that your bases are covered. Survival planning is best accomplished when you plan for one scenario – disaster. If you plan for generic disaster, you will more thoroughly cover yourself in the eventuality that you need to actually implement your plan.

What do you always need, to survive?

Food:

2 months worth for 1 person and it only requires 3.5 cu ft to transport/store.

Water:

Will purify water anywhere you go.

Shelter (& warmth): 

You’ll need several means of starting a fire if you plan to live primitive. There are many options (lighters, matches, strikers – magnesium, etc)… I recommend all of the above and this – the easiest way to get the job done – Fire Starter (just add 9V batteries).

For shelter, you may want to ditch the vehicle, depending on the security risks it poses to your encampment. These books should get you where you need to go: Primitive Survival and this GOOD LIST OF OPTIONS.

You will definitely need an axe, a handsaw, a pointy shovel, and it doesn’t hurt to keep 550 cord at all times!

There are many medications, first aid, and other items to CONSIDER.

Security: You will need weapons.You will need bludgeons. You will need cutting instruments. You will need firearms. A thing to consider for the security of your camp is .22lr subsonic rds. These rounds allow for hunting while producing a relatively small noise signature. You’ll also need a weapon that can put rds down range in quick succession and inflict maximum damage to reduce your target(s).

Throw in ONE OF THESE FOR EACH PERSON,a bucket of lard from Costco, a gallon (or two) of unscented chlorine bleach, and some entertainment items (books, small chess board, etc) for the kids, and one or two of these BADASS Zombie-Killing Multi-tools  and you’re ready to go.

All you need now, is a situation and a well-researched bugout spot.

Obama’s pal Bill Ayers wants a revolution

Obama’s buddy Derrick Bell taught us that white supremacy is woven into the fabric of American government, law and culture. He explained that the United States is, by definition, a white supremacist nation. Obama’s buddy Bill Ayers agrees and explains that we are going to have to have a revolution to correct this flaw.

Politico: Are voters stupid?

The fact that they elected Obama president would indicate that the answer to that question is an emphatic “yes!” That isn’t what Politico meant, however.

“The first lesson you learn as a pollster is that people are stupid,” said Tom Jensen of Public Policy Polling, a Democratic polling firm. “I tell a client trying to make sense of numbers on a poll that are inherently contradictory that at least once a week.”

Jensen, a Democrat, pointed to surveys showing that voters embraced individual elements of the Affordable Care Act, while rejecting the overall law, as an example of the political schizophrenia or simple ignorance that pollsters and politicians must contend with.

In reality, pollsters are often very stupid.

There is a difference between wishing for something and really expecting to get it. It would, for example, be a hell of a lot of fun to own a vacation home in Key West, Florida. Hell, I might even be able swing it if I wanted to.

Of course life is trade-offs, isn’t it? If I bought that house on the water in Key West it would impact my ability to put my kids through college, cover emergency expenses or even retire before I am deep into dotage. It is rational to like the idea of owning a house in Key West and yet not pursue getting one.

So yes Mr. Pollster, I would very much enjoy owning a house in Key West. No Mr. Pollster, despite my pleasure contemplating that idea, I am not interested speaking to a Realtor.

Obamacare works the same way. Yes, it would be a wonderful world if you could call an insurance company today and purchase a policy that would cover a house that burned yesterday. I might even tell a pollster, depending on the way he asked the question, that it would be nice if health insurance providers didn’t turn away customers with pre-existing conditions.

The reality, however, is that I understand that forcing insurance companies to accept those with pre-existing conditions – much like owning a house in Key West – comes at great cost and I will have to give up quite a lot to get it. I am not willing to do so. It is a perfectly rational position to approve of both a house in Key West and non-denial of preexisting conditions but decide they aren’t worth what I would have to give up in order to get them.

Some pollsters, however, have difficulty understanding this concept. Pollsters, you see, are stupid.

Something to look forward to!

If, for some reason, you are sleeping with a leftist woman, you are going to be given a temporary furlough next month. Enjoy your week off. God knows you have earned it.

For those of you who aren’t fraternizing, here are some details.

A group of liberal-leaning women in the United States are calling for a strike this spring, and they hope to have their demands met through a form of protest that takes picketing to a whole new level.

Liberal Ladies Who Lunch, a women’s right group that says they strive to turn “America blue, one plate at a time,” is waging a sex strike starting next month that they hope will combat infringements on their personal liberties being waged by conservatives.

If there were only some way to convince them to make it permanent.

Moonbats Want To Ban ‘Dante’s Divine Comedy’

From The Telegraph:

The classic work should be removed from school curricula, according to Gherush 92, a human rights organisation which acts as a consultant to UN bodies on racism and discrimination.

Dante’s epic is “offensive and discriminatory” and has no place in a modern classroom, said Valentina Sereni, the group’s president.

Divided into three parts – Hell, Purgatory and Heaven – the poem consists of 100 cantos, of which half a dozen were marked out for particular criticism by the group.

It represents Islam as a heresy and Mohammed as a schismatic and refers to Jews as greedy, scheming moneylenders and traitors, Miss Sereni told the Adnkronos news agency.

Haters.
